Hi guys! i have just started with deamons and the race i played before was khorne only with HoC so i have decided to keep it up with blood for the blood god. right now i have got the skulltaker and 30x bloodletters. i was just wondering what i should buy first if i want a good CC army. i will mostly face WE and TK. i was also thinking, i looked through the army book very closly but its one thing i cant find. dosent the units thats deticated to khorne get plus dispell dices and the one to tzeentch get plus power dice and such like it was in HoC. well feel free to help me.
Blood for the Blood God!
In terms of your army, think about using flesh hounds - they're fast, high quality unit that can do damage to lots of different units. Furies are useful to keep your army flexible.
Without models from other gods, you're likely to find yourself vulnerable to magic even with Khorne Daemons' magic resistance. Bear that in mind if you attempt the pure Khorne route.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
I think these are the units to bear in mind
Bloodthirster - if you like big hulking monster of death
Daemon prince - if you not going for points efficiency and feel the BT is ott
Flesh hound - they are fast, powerful, very resilient, good magic resistant
Bloodcrusher - they will rip most units a new hole these are something even bloodknights would fear even with regen banner
furies - cheap, useful, good for march blocking, mage/artillery hunting
Flesh Hounds are truly indispensable. The more I look at them the more I like them. They are worth every point you pay for them. Bloodcrushers are also quite good, considering they are like 2 Hounds with 1 less movement, +1 S on 2 attacks, an armour save, and killing blow. Running a HoK (or better yet, Skulltaker) with a unit of these beasts will take out almost anything. Bloodletters are great units, but can be hurt pretty hard by shooting and magic with only T3. Furies take care of that problem somewhat, as they can be awesome lone mage/skirmisher/warmachine hunters, as well as terror bombs if you cast the terror causing spells on them. .
Khorne is doable, but as everyone else has said, expect to be hurting against magic heavy armies.
No, I don't have any wool.
I have to disagree with happy jim. Stay away from the daemon prince at all costs. It is not at all worth its point cost. The greater daemons are all better point for point.
i guess you didnt read what i was saying, i said only use it if your not going for points efficiency, that means, its not great, it exists, use it at your own risk
I've just started a khorne force too, so I have a couple questions.
I have six bloodcrushers right now, so I can field 2X3 units.
But heralds on bloodcrushers seem rather amazing.
I'm thinking of converting two of the bloodcrushers into heralds, but that leaves me with an ugly 1 bloodcrusher left.
A unit of 3, and a unit of 1 bloodcrusher is fine. You could also go for units of 2, or one unit of 4. Remember, each size of unit has a different role, so pick what you need for your army. Hard for me to see that....
As for pure Khorne, units to consider would be.....all the Khorne ones. Khorne armies tend to max out, or get close to, on flesh hounds. These guys can rush enemy gunlines or other small units with no static res, break through the line, and then you're behind the enemy (that's good )
I'd go for a BT for sure. He'll add so much to the army in terms of combat punch.
If you wanted Bloodcrushers, maybe go for 1 unit. They're a little frail, with only 2 wounds, but do hit hard. Fury screens are needed for these guys, otherwise they fill the same role as Flesh Hounds, only they hit harder and also have armour.
Make sure you get you're Heralds on juggers with Armour of Khorne
You're core can do a few things, I think. Either MSU, with 3 units of 10, so you can max out in other areas (GD, Hounds, Crushers...). Like my mixed army, You can go 1 large unit, backed by 2 smaller ones. ! use 1x20 and 2x10. The big unit of Letters joined by a Herald is a solid unit. While there's Flesh Hounds, fury's and BT running around, nothing even tends to target this unit, and when the enemy gets close to the unit, it tends to rip apart whatever it gets near (and that was BEFORE i wrote a BSB into the list ). I guess the other thing you do here is go with 3 or more decent sized units, I just don't know how that would go.
Good luck with the army. Mono Khorne is a pretty solid build, and though you'll be weak in the magic area, you should have more models that hit hard in combat, as you're not spending points on wizards.

I think the only problem with bloodthirsters is that against certain armies they be incredibly boring to use, at the end of the day whats the point in a game if both people dont enjoy it.
