Hi there. I was looking through the codex yesterday, trying to find options that arent so commonly taken by people and I came across daemonic steeds. Now I know some people use these frequently but this only seems to be the Tzeentch and Slaanesh marked models (being disc of Tzeencth and Steed of Slannesh) as both of these alter the move rates of the chosen HQ model. Now the Khorne and Nurgle marked units dont ofter use there steeds as it seems they are more difficult to apply to the field of battle.
So what Im trying to do is knock up a way of putting these options to good use.
To start with, has anyone used these options in the past and would they like to share with us there experiences.
The problem is that you cant chuck the Khorne and Nurgle steeds in a rhino to get them into the fight.
The Land Raider is not so great in the current edition so no one uses the option of throwing the nurgle one in there.
I can see them being used on the off chance in 5th edition with run coming into things, but in 4th they just dont cut the mustard.
What once was courage has now cursed in the wars we've made.
We are the sinners, before our graves.
With 5th Edition marching they become a little more practical as foot sloggers.
"If you can wait til I get home, then I swear we can make this last."
Yup, in 5th Ed' a Khorne Lord mounted on one of the new Juggernaughts would look very cool indeed. No good in 4th, but better in 5th as they'll be able to Run. Same with the Nurgle 'steed'.
I do use Mounts, i.e. the Disc and the Steed of Slaanesh. Both for Sorcerors. I like the extra Attack for Tzeentch combined with Warp Fire.
Suddenly the Juggernaut became interesting. With the Run-rule Zerkers with a Jugger-Lord can jogg quite fast. And the strength bonus granted by the jugger, the Bloodfeeder just became horrendous.
"The more choices you force the opponent to make, the better the chance for you to capitalize on his mistakes"
i could imagine someone would use the nurgle seed as a ride for his nurgle sorceror and put him into a big squad of plaque marines to create a big and hard to kill counter attack or objective claim unit. a big issue of the force weapon is it's low strength so the steed would make up for that and turn him into something that can really dish it out. that's what i would do if i didn't need the speed and didn't want a prince.
