I've been trying to get a competitive daemons list going at 1500 points and I wound up with this list, I'd appreciate any criticism.
Skulltaker on chariot
Herald of Tzeentch on Disc
10 Pink Horrors - with the herald
An obvious weakness I see in my list is that I lack an icon, so scatters may be a bit scary for me. Otherwise I think it's a fairly solid list, thoughts?
Skully on a chariot is an obvious target. Normal Heralds on chariots work because they're so cheap, but Skully is a short points jump to a Bloodthirster. Stick him on a Jugger if you must so he can hide.
Tzerald doesn't need a disk, hide with Horrors. Chariot preferred.
5 Bloodcrushers have a massive DS footprint and can be avoided thanks to their amazing slowness.
You don't need instruments, they're points filler.
1 Grinder is toast, get more.
You don't have much to bust up tanks, so a mech army will basically own you. If you want a Grinder, get more big guys to go with them. Fiends, MCs, Grinders, and anything with Bolt will help against tanks.
I'm hesitant to drop the skulltaker and the herald simply because I've already modeled them as such. Should I drop the bloodcrushers to a smaller unit size or split them up?
And I did select the instruments as point fillers, I didn't have much else to throw in there.
Perhaps a winged prince would be a good anti-tank? I already have some converted ones I can field instead of or maybe in conjunction with the grinder.
Then if you must, you must.
If you're going to run Crushers, you need speedy units to catch up to the enemy quickly and pin them down. You also need something to mess up tanks.
Fiends, anything with Bolt, fast MCs/big gribblies.
Alright, here's my revised list with more anti tank
Skulltaker on Chariot
Herald of Tzeentch
-Master of Sorcery
-We Are Legion
10 Pink Horrors
1 Daemon Prince
I was trying to clear enough points to put wings on the prince to be able to chase things better, but I couldn't find anything to remove, perhaps the nurglings?
But as you can see this list packs more bolts of tzeentch, and flamers, which I forgot how much I loved. There's also still the seekers with 4*5 rending attacks for light vehicles as well.
Thanks for the help by the way!
((edit)) After some thought, I could very very easily convert my disc herald to a chariot herald.
