View Full Version : 1000 Points Daemons of Chaos - New Player Needs Advice

23-05-2013, 06:24
I'm primarily a 40k player trying to get into Fantasy. My local shop is having an escalation league and I'm having trouble building a 1000 point list. I'm trying to use as many of the models that I already own. I'm also avoiding Nurgle units. I've heard great things about Beasts of Nurgle, but I don't can't dig their aesthetics enough to purchase any of the models. Maybe some alternative theme'd count-as could work. Anyways...

I own the following models;
2 Slaaneshi DPs
Nurgle DP
Khorne Herald of Foot (FW)
6 Bloodcrushers
6 Screamers
9 Flamers
20 Daemonettes
10 Pink Horrors
1 Changling
2 Exalted Seeker of Slaanesh Chariots
5 Seekers of Slaanesh

I'm trying to build an 1000 point list without having to build a bunch of new models.
The list I've come up with is;

Total = 995/1000
Heroes = 245
Herald of Slaanesh
-Level 1
-Lesser Locus of Grace
-Lesser Gift

Herald of Tzeentch

Core = 400
20 Daemonettes of Slaanesh
-Full Command
-Banner of Eternal Flame

10 Pink Horrors

Special = 2XX
5 Screamers of Tzeentch

Rare = 1XX
Skull Cannon of Khorne

I'm afraid the list is a bit all over the place. I'd like to run Slaanesh/Khorne if possible, but I've heard Bloodletters aren't that great. At 1500 points I'm hoping to add a Khorne Herald on Jug with a unit of Bloodcrusher.

Any feedback on the lists, models I should look to pick up, and playing daemons in general would be very much appreciated.
