Hey, this is my first daemons list and was hoping for some tips/criticism on it.
Herald of Khorne on Juggernaught
20 Bloodletters with bloodreaper
19 Bloodletters with bloodreaper
3 Blood Crushers
Not sure whether I should keep this or reduce the size of the bloodletter units and add some blood hounds.
Also thinking of putting the herald of khorne on a a carnosaur as a juggernaught.
Let me know what you think.
Nice list. If you have points you can shave somewhere i would put skulltaker on a juggernaught. I like your Herald on carnosaur idea. Post the pics if you ever do it.
For the moment at least would leave your list how it is.
Skulltaker on juggernaught alot more effective as you can get him to where he's needed easier, (also because his ground movemnet is only 4" whilst a normal BL is 5",) but in this list it would leave you with what could be a slight issue;
1) do you take ST and your herald both on jugs in the same unit making a very juicy target, (an eggs in one basket situatiuon)
2) do you take the herald off a jug and drop him into a BL unit, robbing the blood crushers of the locus abilty of hatred?
I would try out the list and then maybe look at changing unit sizes if things dont pan out to well.
In 1500pts go for skulltaker on jug and put him with some flesh hounds, that way you get some fast mobile protection for skulltaker on jug and at the same time your herald is still fast moving in the BC unit.
BTW saltrock 36 the ground movement of skulltaker is actually 5 they fixed that in the errata
The list looks good personally i would take a unit of flesh hounds instead of the bloodcrushers because everytime i used the crusher they seemed to get shot down and never make their points back and all they have extra compared to a hound is S6 instead of S5
i would then make the blood letter units form like this:
J J B B B B
J J B B B B
B B B B B B
B B B B B B
The J's being you heroes and where they would sit in the unit
This six wide frontage gives more attacks and means the would benefit from a the hatred
So your new list might look like this
Herald of Khorne
5 x Flesh Hounds
It's quite similar to mine except I don't take Skulltaker and I tool my Heralds up more
I found during my first battle that my Bloodletters did little than to add a meat shield for the Heralds, which did the majority of the damage.
BSB with the banner that makes enemy leadership -2 is always handy which worked for me, but in your case the concern will be shooting and Magic - particularly against "supporting" magic - ie not cast against you rather on friendly units.
Remeber that Skulltaker does not add the locum therefore his unit will not have frenzy, again this reduces their effectiveness
the locus of khorne is hatred not frenzy just to let you know
