I play in China so I only ever face 4 armies - WoC, Skaven, HE & Empire. Little bit worried about Hell Cannons on my Greater Daemon (Furies and Fiend ain't gonna take that out!). Suggestions especially welcome there.
30 Bloodletters of Khorne (w/full command & Siren Standard)
30 Daemonettes of Slannesh (w/standard & musician)
5 Chaos Furies
5 Flesh Hounds of Khorne (w/ Karanak)
5 Bloodcrushers of Khorne (w/full command)
1 Fiend of Slannesh
Herald of Khorne (BSB - Icon of Despair) Armour of Khorne , Daemonic Robes
Herald of Tzeentch, Spell Breaker, Disc of Tzeentch, Daemonic Robes
Bloodthirster of Khorne - Spell breaker, Immortal Fury, Firestorm Blade, Armour of Khorne
first of all bloodletters can't take the siren standard (its a slaanesh banner). second it probably isn't very wise to put your herhal of tzeentch on a disc, it makes him very vurnarable. I should take a look if you can get a unit of flamers and put your herhald of tzeentch in that. Further more your herhald of tzeentch can't take spell breaker (if I remeber correctly, don't have the book with me). Its also a good idea to give the herhald of tzeentch master of sorcery, it makes him a lore master of one of the eight main lores(your chose)
Thanks for your comments man! Really appreciate you taking the time to lend a hand.
You're right, of course, about the icon. Really dumb of me. Changed that to the Icon of Endless War.
Like the master of sorcery idea too. As a matter of fact the herald can take the spell breaker, but since the greater daemon has one, I figured your suggestion of the master of sorcery is more valuable.
As regards the vulnerability of the tzeentch herald, I'm not sure about the flamers idea: they're too expensive. Do you find that they make their points back by the end of the game? But the alternative doesn't look so good either - can't really say that horrors do it for me, even with their spells.
I wonder about leaving the herald on the disc: his robes and ward save mean 2/3 of wounds won't land, make good use of scenery, plus the blood thirster should draw the fire surely?
What do you think about this?
How about this:
29 Blood letters, Full Command, Banner of Endless War
30 Daemonettes of Slaanesh, standard and musician
5 Chaos Furies
5 Seekers of Slaanesh
4 Flamers of Tzeentch
5 Blood Crushers, Full Command
1 Fiend of Slaanesh
Herald of Khorne, BSB, Icon of Despair, Armour of Chaos, Daemonic Robes
Herald of Tzeentch, Master of Sorcery, Daemonic Robes
Bloodthirster, Firestorm blade, Spell Breaker, Armour of Khorne, Immortal Fury
I find that 5 furies don't last that long. They charge and die. I also don't find that daemonic robes are worth the points. Wounding of 3+ vs 2+ doesn't seem to make that much of a difference. It might make them last another turn, but thats about all. I like to have my wizard in a unit of at least 10 horrors so that he can't be shot apart by archers. Dropping the robes and furies will get 110 points, find another 10 (maybe the musician from the bloodcrushers, or something else) and put 10 horrors. They also count as a second wizard for dispel/channel. Just my thoughts.
