    Should I sell my daemons?

    I have had my daemons for about 6 months and in all my games i have only lost once. My list is very balanced and does not run a greater Daemon but I do have a Keeper. Both me and my friends are losing interest in playing them and against them but I would hate to let them go after the models turned out so nicely from painting. If I do sell them I would be able to finish off buying the rest of an ogre army i'm working on and maybe even start picking up some empire pieces.

    as it stands i have:

    2 converted tzeentch herlds (from dryads)
    2 herald of khorne on juggers (one is a BS
    1 Keeper
    20 converted horrors (from dryads)
    30 bloodletters
    10 furies
    10 flesh hounds (converted from chaos warhounds)
    8 screamers
    6 flamers

    all of the models are nicely painted
    except for the flamers and keeper because i haven't gotten to them yet.

    And so the question stands. should I sell them and pick up another army or should I just hang on to them for when i want to annihilate someone. Although I already have Dark Elves for that.

    That's not really balanced as an in general army. It may be soft by daemon standards but it still is going to be annoying. You could make it much more friendlier.

    As for your question, no. Just play with another army or make the daemon list really soft. don't let all of your good work go to waste.

    Do you have any pictures of the horrors? My friend has been thinking of doing something similar for a while.

    Switch the roles of your armies. You can make a far softer Dark Elf list and a much more potent Daemons list without buying as many new pieces. Daemons are already the more powerful of the two, being as they are the most broken army in the game. And I've seen some really cool, super-soft Dark Elf armies that play to the fluff (Cults of Khaine etc)

    I usually end up regretting it when i sell painted models. might be something personal cus some do that for a living.

    i would say if you like the models donot sell, even if you dont like the armybook now, new books will come out.
    I also hear ogre kingdoms can be quite forgiving when it comes to spending money, maybe play all three armies

    It covers all phases of the game very well, movement, magic, shooting and combat. Me and my friends usually call that balanced but I could be misreading your comment.

    Yes but that would require me to buy more pieces and I would rather spend my money on either ogres or empire.

    Yes but it will take me several days before I can post them.

    good advice.

    I will probably end up doing that.

    Every time I've sold an army, or even just bits of it, I've felt regret at some point later on. I'd keep it if I were you. One day you will look over at that empty spot and wish they still were there.

    As for daemons and their powerful nature it is very possible to make both fun and cool list without going overboard. I mean if you just skip the Greater daemon, and you've eased up the tension right there. Instead of going 2 x 5 hounds, you could go 8 hounds which oddly enough, while being the better choice in my experience it gets a better reception from your opponents. Flamers, while being useful you could just go with 3 and put them on harassment patrol or just have a look at the rest of the rare choices(bloodcrushers and Pleasureseekers being my favourites). In short, play daemons people arent used to see. Your armies will still be tough but your opponents are likely to see it as more of a challenge instead of going to default reaction and either calling cheese as you've deployed, muttering during the game or generally letting you know you're a cheesy git. Units I tend to avoid when making lists are Greater Daemons, special characters, flamers and stocking up on hound units. Still plenty to choose from and people will give you alot of positive feedback and credit for staying away from the stock cookie-cutter lists. There are of course people who've decided that Daemons are cheesy and broken no matter what but pay them no heed, some people just inherantly like to whine regardless of what it is.

    So that is basicaly my way of dealing with the 'broken' nature of daemons(as well as my VC), and instead of repeating the same thing I pretty much summed up 'my way of playing daemons' : Here! (Most friendly way to run daemons)

    As for getting a new army, dont do it because it is cheap, do it because you like the army. I've tried the "economy class" before and I lost interest every time.
