I have an upcoming tourney where I will be playing a blood angels, a chaos SM, and a necron army.
I am looking for advise on my 1250 pt list.
Bloodthirster with blessing of the blood god 255
10 bloodletters 160
10 bloodletters with instrument of chaos 165
5 plaugebearers 75
5 plaugebearers 75
5 bloodcrushers 200
Grinder w/ phlegm 160
Grinder w/ tongue 160
I'm not the best person to reply to this because I am just getting situated with Daemons, but for me, I see that you are spending 1/5th of all your points on one unit; the Bloodthrister. I just got Bloodthirster and he tends to get a lot of attention shooting wise. With a 3+ armor 4+ invulnerable and only 4 wounds, he can fall quickly with some bad saves. If he lives, all the better, but if he dies quick, you are in trouble. I think a good quality HQ with worth less in points is needed, like a Herald of Tzeentch on a Chariot. It has 4 wounds and can shoot like nobody's business. You could spend the points you save on Pink Horrors w/ Changeling and Bolt of Tzeentch so you have some ranged weapons and you have the bolt to melt through armored units like tanks or Dreads. Could I have another opinion on this?
While your point about the bloodthirster taking 20% of the army is a good one, the fact remains that I need a counter to dreadnaughts and land raiders, and the bloodthirster is pretty good at tearing those apart.
To each his own. By adding Pink Horrors and the Herald of Tzeentch, it gives you a couple of Bolt of tzeentchs which is a tank busting thing. Also the Pink Horrors are able to lay down a lot of small arms fire. Your list is absolutely fine, but i worry about your ranged weapon ability that's all.
The tongue on the other Grinder is, at best, unreliable and at worst downright terrible, because Grinders have such a crummy BS. For the same points the Phlegm is just so much better, so I'd recommend doubling up on the snotcannons and forgetting about licking your enemy to submission.
*moved to the army list section*
Spambot kill tally. . .337
Move the instrument onto the crushers for wound allocation and both grunders should take Phlegm. Otherwise its a great list.
Quorn! - Protein for the Protein God.
as for me,I would say you must take out something in order to have some chaos icons with you,so i'd suggest you combine the two small troops of plaguebearers and give them one.
and as i thind the two grinders are a good enough defense against land raiders and other vehicles,maybe you should swap the bloodthirster with a skulltaker/ and or a daemon prince
