    I'm going to buy a Daemon prince, and either way itll take some conversion, but I have to decide between giving the Berserker glaive and getting the nice double attacks, but spending more. OR having talons and killing on every 6 to hit, plus getting 1 bonus attack.
    suggestions:

    That's tough... but that's exactly why I invented the USSR!

    I'd go for the Talons. Be original!

    Of course, the glaives probabyl stronger, what with the 4+ Inv.

    If your giving him stature: Glaive
    If not: Talons
    A Promise to a dead man means nothing.

    I'm assuming it's a Khornate DP, so I'd suggest the glaive as talons aren't very Khornate.. More Slaaneshy, you know, killing with one perfect stroke.

    as a deamon prince ( that is if you give himd. stature you don't need talons as you are a MC ) so the Hellglaive is better, besides it fits well with fluff of khorne, having a DP with a whooping 10 powerweapons attacks on the charge is not pretty to be on the receiving end.
    try to combine it with furious charge

    There is no reason to get tallons at all. You get better armor penetration with stature. If you dont have stature go for a power weapon (axe of khorne or lightning claws are both nice).

    Tallons are good weapons for squads. Not for individuals.

    Alright, but the thing is, I plan on pretty much maxing him out points-wise and daemonic-wise, he&#39;ll have WS6 S6 T6 W4 and a 2+ Sv Does that leave room for Glaive? I think that comes in around 65 pts, which means I can&#39;t get the glaive. I would have to lose a str or sv or something.
    New opinions? Or lose the wound?

    AND If I use Talons, It gives me room for Rage of Khorne and Feel No Pain, which could make him almost invincible (T6, 2+, 50% chance to ignore)
    That&#39;s tough... but that&#39;s exactly why I invented the USSR&#33;

    So dont take the glave. Take axe of khorne, lightning claws (not to great with str 6 unless you go againts other monsters) or just take a basic CCW. You stil count as a power weapon if you have stature. Dread axe is also nice on a stature lord.

    I dearly hope that you have given your Daemonic Prince Daemonic Aura as well (providing you are not going to give him the Glaive) as a DP without it will not last very long at all.

    You could also consider a Dread Axe, ignoring both kinds of saves is very appealing .
