    3 HQ choices - maybe a little too much?

    Ok now, I want to try something new and I was asking myself if it wasn't a little bit too much.

    I already run a list with 2 Daemon Princes with Wings and the Mark of Slaanesh. The list I run usually is 1750 pts, in a 1500 pts game I focus more on the troops and take only one HQ choice.

    In my next 1750 pts list I want to take my 2 flying Daemon Prince and add a Greater Daemon. Since I've read that a Summoned Greater Daemon does not use any force organization chart selection I wondered what it would be like to field 3 Monstruous creatures.

    In fact he will replace 2 units of 5 Lesser Daemons I'm currently fielding, they are good, but a Greater Daemon might be a nasty surprise....

    Is it too much ?

    - Summoned Greater Daemon
    - Daemon Prince w/ wings; MoS
    - Daemon Prince w/ wings; MoS
    370 pts

    Well most force organizeation lists dont allow more than 2 hq but the Greater deamon no longer counts as a hq, you can easily feild this force, it seems quite potent to me but you need to be careful you dont end up with a army that is too small as these 3 will take alot of points.

    The question largely depends on what else is in your list.

    If you have lots of basic marines, then it will be quite nasty. But if you have a lot of expensive cult troops, then your going to be in trouble.

    The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.

    As they said don't spend tons of points on your hq's then because they will be a big target. However if you get lots of troops with that and maybe some rhinos you would be pretty hard hitting.

    Come on, Thyr, you may as well give one of them lash

    I think it's fine.. although I'd be comfortable with this set up at 2K or 1850.

    I still feel 1750 is pushing it a wee bit.

    Hhhmmm the Lash of submission might be a good idea... I'll think about it .

    The rest of the army is 3 squad of 10 CSM dedicated to Slaanesh fully geared up with 2 Meltaguns and Power Fist in rhinos, 8 Slaaneshii Raptors with 2 Meltaguns and a Power Fist to go along the Daemon Princes, 4 terminators (3 combi-melta; 1 heavy flamer) and 2 Predators.

    In fact this is the list I'm using those days with 2 squads of Lesser Daemons, I'm just replacing the lesser Daemon squads by a Greater Daemon. By dropping a Power Fist so my Greater Daemon don't kill a really expensive champion I get 50 pts on my old list and everyone in my list suddenly became dedicated to Slaanesh .

    Total model count 42 Chaos Marines, 3 Monstruous Creatures and 5 tanks.

    That's not too shabby at all.
    You know the next step - List it up!!

    Also, ignore people that say a single lash is cheesy and broken.
    If they say so, kindly ask them to remove any holofields from their falcons

    Ill just let you know, the Greater daemon is VERY resilient but lacks the offensive power it had before. It cant kill swathes of troops like the lord but is amazing for the points cost.

    Cheap cheap!!!

    Lol you've just convinced me to try it next game Thanks.
    At least now I will have something to go against the Eldar Avatar my Brother field all the time, that and his 2 Wraithlords... It will even out the odds.

    Here's the complete list : http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...05#post1064105

    DONE!

    The rest of your list looks ripe fine. I would consider using Warp Time over the lash, at least on one of your princes and maybe both of them. The lash becomes a wasted upgrade once the prince scurries into c.c., which is why the lash works so well on the sorcerer, who is cheaper and not initially geared for c.c.

    Warp Time will add a couple more kills each round of c.c. and smooth out your bad dice rolls. You'll go from killing 2.6 marines on the charge, to almost 4. It's the best offensive upgrade a prince can buy, especially once you consider that it can be used both on your turn and your opponents (That's potentially 12 uses).
