Starting a Chaos Daemons army. Need help with 1000 pts list.
« on: September 18, 2015, 01:13:13 PM »
I've been playing CSM for a few years now and I recently started a small Khorne Daemonkin army, and I was thinking of also starting a small 1000 pts. Daemons army.

I have some Khorne daemons (bloodletters, flesh hounds, prince, and bloodthirster) from my Daemonkin army I can use plus a great unclean one and a Tzeentch prince w/ wings. I'd like to use the great unclean one as HQ, but I don't necessarily wan't to play a mono-god list. I was thinking of getting the battleforce box, any suggestions what else I should add to my army?

It depends on what you want your army to do, and how want to do certain things. Nurgle daemons stay on objectives forever, khorne kills marines, slaanesh takes on hoarde(depends on the model) and 2+ armor en mass, tzeentch provides the mind bullets and summoning, generally just support. Really how i see it is that it comes down to your personal play style and what you like doing in the game. Coming out of playing daemonkin, you have the advantage of knowing how some of them work already. Khorne/nurgle armies miggt be a good place to start, as it would be very similar to what you already know.
As for suggestions, based in what ive suggested, on what to get, start with a box of plague bearers or nurglings and a herald of nurgle. Also, a soul grinder is pretty much necessary. It provides you with pretty much your only source of dakka outside of psychic phase.
Perhaps a box of pink horrors of you want to try summoning more daemon cheaply or act as a psychic battery for your great unclean one.
The tzeentch prince can fly around harassing and summining absolutely everywhere and is a massive target for your opponent so you can use that to buy yourself some time to move everything else forward.
Hope this helps, let me kniw if you have more questions
