2k Daemon list I am working with.
« on: July 02, 2013, 07:58:59 AM »
So For most of 6th Ed I have been running a Daemon or CSM + Daemon list.  My most recent list was one relying on Chaos Spawn, Cultists, Screamers, etc.  But after having played the New Serpent spam eldar and Tau I am finding spawn a little lack luster, when you cannot get a cover save against high strength shots they evaporate.  So that got me thinking about how to use a similar list with models I own, that does not rely on cover, is still abit assaulty, and is very mobile.  So I settled back on Daemons.  They add the Warpstorm, which while random gives a bit of extra shooting, and shenanegans, and they with invul saves don't need Cover.

So here is the list

Fateweaver

2 x Level 3 Heralds of Tzeentch on Disk w/ Exalted Gifts.

11 Horrors
2 x 10 Horrors

9 Screamers
8 Screamers

Soul Grinder W/ Slaanesh and Baleful torrent
Soul Grinder w/ Nurgle and Plegm

Daemon Prince w/ Flight, 3+ save, Tzeentch, Level 3, 2 Greater Gifts, Lesser Gift

Heralds Roll on Divination trying to the 4++ power, and use the Grimoir for 2++ re-rollable on Screamers, Soul Grinders are super durable against most things.  Horrors are Meh, but fairly durable and can shoot.  Prince is there to cause problems and be another fast threat.

Thoughts?  Questions?

seems really fun, but unreliable. you do realise that you can only have one grimoire per detachment in case you wanted to put it on both screamer squads?

Yes, I know that, you use it on one squad and if you get invisibility on Fateweaver or the prince you can use it on the other, otherwise you keep that squad as a fast fringe element that can be a fall back for the heralds if the primary squad gets beat up.

It is really not very unreliable though, what makes you think so?
