So about a month ago, I started daemons. I was al enthusiastic about it, and did lots of research on the army, and decided that there was a general amount of moaning on the net, but I would live with it since it can't be all that bad.
It is all that bad.
Today I played 4 games in a row, all at 500 points. Maybe daemons are just poorly balanced at this points level. What happened is that I can't not scatter at least 7 inches or more when I deploy. And scattering into impassable terrain, when the other directions around it are empty. Bad luck to be sure. Secondly, I keep rolling poorly on my reserves. very poorly. As in my assault troops are always coming in on the last turn when I dont have to roll for it, and its automatic. In all 4 of my games. Over two weeks.
Its really getting my down and I want to be good at them, but at the moment I feel like smashing them or putting them away in the cupboard, at the very best I am regretting the battalion box I have put it into this project. Not much I know but I am poor =)
Ok so now that we are done feeling sorry for ourselves, lets try make it work.
I have 20 bloodletters, 5 seekers, 10 horrors, the changeling 1 herald of tzeentch, 1 herald of nurgle, and a daemon prince.
I usually take the tzeentch herald, all the horrors and changeling,the dp and 7 bloodletters. I get severly curb stomped. With everything coming in drabs, and the small sizes of the enemy, they usually fire at each unit with their whole army.
So what can i do??? At this current point in time, I am not prepared to buy any more models unless its skulltaker that fixes all my problems. I can also get hold of the assault on black reach orks in about 5 minutes easily so this might be a solution to the heachache, but I am a follower of the chaos gods, I won't chicken out now =)
