As the title suggests, is anyone using deamonic steeds? I haven't seen them in many armies. But then again, the deamon prince is mostly beter in every aspect.
I used a Khorne lord on a juggernaught with lightning claws but he couldn't ride in a rhino but he would sure mess people up in CC and the potential of a 24' charge range was nice. Of course this came at a higher cost than a daemon prince with wings and warptime or lash, which seemed to be more effective.
In the HQ section I saw some suggestions of HQs on a Disc of Tzeetch which seemed to have some value but never really tried them out.
I wrote up more lengthy impressions on my blog:
Sorceress of Tzeentch at Play Wargamer Haven
Other then that, I haven't really messed with the other steeds in the current codex.

every steed basically gives +1 attack, and 1 other bonus. Either a stat boost or a better movement mode, and they all provide some sort of restriction on how it may be transported.

Mark of Slaanesh, Demon Weapon, Steed of Slaanesh
She has preformed wonderfully except for the last game I played but then again the whole army was pretty much disappointing me.
If you do things right people wont be sure if you have done anything at all.
Daemonic Steeds are undoubtedly cool and pretty effective.. the idea of Khorne Lord with a Bloodfeeder crashing into and big squad of SMurfs sends shivers down my spine... but point for point they're just not as effective as some of the more common options. The Lash Prince and even Kharn are significantly better.

what about useing the disc to throw in with deep-striking raptors? iv only used my tzeench lord in one game so far but he sure makes my raptors alot scarier / adds some extra wounds to them. plus with the daemon weapon of tzeench not being able to assult right away seems less detramental.
Could you understand the beauty of the beast?
