I was recently skimming through the Daemons of Chaos army book, and really liked what I saw, especially the Tzeentch flavored Daemons. Not to mention the idea of having an army that is almost exclusively composed of flying units.
In fact, I liked them so much, I decided I would look them up on the GW web site to check out the models/prices. That's when I discovered the problem..
Half of the units listed in the army book are NOT on the product list. Not to mention, it costs $22 (American) for 5 horrors of Tzeentch.
So, without starting a 300 post debate thread, my question is "What the heck GW?!" Chaos Warriors are more points per model and 30 bucks gets you 12 of them. Oh, and there's that whole thing about having to convert half my army.
Yup. It was merely a week after the DoC rulebook release that I found out Seekers (Mounted Daemonettes) weren't being made anymore.
I don't mind conversion though. I like making my armies unique.

The lack of seekers is a bit annoying. But you can get most of the DoC units (the really tricky ones to convert are the chariots) from GW.
The price is the biggest issue...but it would be hoping for a lot for GW to make all the core units plastic when all were redone in 6th ed. Each book has a limited budget...so something has to lose out (horrors and plaguebearers remaining metal).
Though I thought GW had put a stop to having units in the book without models available (seekers), which seemed to end with DoC. We just have to keep hoping for the next set of daemon releases to come along like they have for the Empire.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
Never mind about the plague-bearers and horrors, at least the models are acceptable even if they are metal. What we really need is new furies since the existing metals are not only expensive they are also horrendous models.
I gave up on them entirely and I'm in the process of converting my own from harpy wings and plastic dryads.
totally agreed, I started a few months ago with doc, but haven't fielded any furies yet. They're way to expensive imo. I've been looking for similar models in other wargames, but wasnt able to find any. All the GW prices are overpriced. Luckily some sites started to sell them for cheaper prices, but unfortunatly not supplying all of the models
Thats a pretty cool idea actually, they'd make great nurgle furies, although buying metal models plus metal wings drives the cost per model up quite high. I was thinking about crypt ghouls as possible nurgly furies...
There are several reasons why GW's daemons are expensive
A: They are an elite army, and therefore you should expect less models in a box.
B: Most of the models in the range are metal, and due to the recession , these have all gone up in price
and C: If you're a true daemon of chaos player, then you just pay the money for them, instead of whinging about the price!!!
lol do u work for gw or something?
I mean if other stores can sell the GW models for cheaper prices than GW shops itselfs, I think its just abusing it monopoly. Ofcourse it has the right to do so, but I mean, I can bet their profits overwhelmingly high. Its just, since the can get these high profits, they should at least try please us players by for example bringing out models for characters and troops in the army book. It's just a shame you have to convert most of it yourself. (I'm not complaining about that I dont like converting, I'm just saying, they should at least offer the models).
And as to prices per model, how much do you all think my empire army costs at 2250 points? We're talking 110 models here.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
