So yesterday i got my very own codex and i must say fluffwise it's awesome!
It's written for the 5th edition as it mentiones the "new" grenades which are basically photon and plasma grenades.
I can't say whether it's lame or uber yet but i am a little disappointed about a little something...
We get 7 special characters (as HQ) and 8 other HQs but only 2 support units. They are great, especially the Soulgrinder as it is a deepstriking walker !!! 8X But just 2?
P.S.: Where is the Chaos Deamons group? Even Kroot Mercenaries got one...
I just got the White Dwarf for Chaos Daemons and it's awesome! I must have skulltaker! Let him show how to own daemon style!
I just have a- I'm going to just hold there before Rabbit or another mod 'reprimands' me for asking a question about the codex. I'm just gonna wait.
Oh- to heck with it. What do you think of the new Daemon Prince? I'm gonna keep it as general as that for now.
Zoe: Doesn't the bible say something specific about killing?
Preacher: Yes, but it's somewhat fuzzy on the subject of kneecaps.
The new Daemon Prince... Terrible durability, as with the rest of the army, except that you pay roughly the same price for him as 10+ smaller daemons. Quite customizable, Hit and Run is fun, but it just keeps coming back to the fact that a well aimed 111 point dakkafex can easily kill it in one shooting phase.
I think a great bumper sticker would be as follows:
Proud parent of a child whose self-confidence is good enough that he doesn't need me advertising his minor scholastic achievements on my carclick me
There aren't many single models that a well aimed dakka-fex can't kill!
The new daemon prince is insanely customisable. GW unfortunately noticed all us CSM players shoving wings on princes and jacked the price up incredibly which is a shame, but don't forget that if done properly, (espcially with wings) your enemy should only have 1 shooting phase against the DSing prince. then it can get on with munching people.
The only unit i'm really concerned about is the bloodcrushers. Beautiful models but they're slow and a big scary looking target. I don't expect them to make it to combat very often. ah well.
If I've replied, i've probably used Italics...

You can also give the prince a 3+ save. You can make a 210 point nurgle one that has T6, flys, a 3+ save, and always wounds on a 2+. A bit expensive, but the fact that it moves fast, is about as durable as a fex, and has 4 attacks that wound on a 2+ all the time? It'll probably be useful. The wounding on a 2+ ability is really cheap- less than one marine.
