    Daemon prince can't summon ?

    Hi, I just read in the codex that the daemon prince can't be given a personal icon, so this mean he can't be used to summon daemons. This is bad...

    It's not that bad. You can still give lord or sorc an icon and a jump pack or wings, and it would serve much the same purpose, just slightly more killable. That's what I am going to be doing.

    Or less killable. IC status is useful for a model with a teleport homer-equivalent, and Lords can deal out a lot more attacks than a Prince.

    The prince can hold objectives while the lord and sorc cannot.

    The prince is alot harder but does not give out as much pain.

    Well, he also hits for harder, although he does not have as many attacks. However, if you give him warp time, then he'll produces as many kills as an undivided lord w/ a daemon weapon.

    Good point rabbit, Rep given.

    145 for the DP with wings and warp time.
    150 for the Lord with wings and Daemon weapon.

    DP plus's
    Monsterous creature, ignores armour saves, extra armour penertration, scoring unit.
    Higher basic WS, S and T.
    Additional W.
    Eternal.
    Awesome modelling project!
    Scares opponant.

    DP negatives
    Monsterous creature, can be targeted freely.
    Fire magnet.
    Takes up alot of space in the carry case

    Lord plus's
    Independant, harder to target, can hide in squads.
    Frag grenades (important never the less!)
    Massive amount of attacks.
    Massive amount of additional options

    Lord negatives
    Delicate (in comparison to 3ED).
    Can wound self.


    Any more additions to this list??

    it's bad news.
    Personally, I honestly believe it's an oversight on the author's part.

    Fluff wise or whatever, it makes no sense.
