Okay, I know this questions crops up a lot as I've searched through the threads for an answer.
I'm just wondering what people tend to run as I'm picking up 3 on the new models when they are released.
My list is fairly fast comprising bloodthirster/screamers/fiends/flamers with slower bloodletters/horrors/plaguebearers behind them.
I was thinking wings to get the faster movement and to match the main thrust of my army, but with bolt of tzeentch it may not be needed as I can just shoot them to slow targets down, then thump them to bits.
Wings are expensive, but what are peoples real life experience with them?
BTW. I'm intending to run bolt and gaze on the DPs.
Wings are probably the least important on a DPoT but are still viable. They provide the important function of getting DPs into combats. On a DPoT you can afford to just stay back and shot but with wings you can effectively assault units which a DP can do well.
i usually run with two bolt princes, they work well without wings, actually i think they'd be too expensive with wings, that'd be 200 points, then i'd rather have nurgle prince of close combat doom for 15 points more...
I agree the MoT prince is great with just MoT and bolt for 140 points. I used to add gaze too but the 2 weapons don't compliment each other too well and you cannot give them "We are Lagion".
Quorn! - Protein for the Protein God.
At very high point levels I might give them wings and daemonic gaze, but usually I just give them bolt, as they're a steal at 140 points.
As for modeling, I modeled them with wings, and no one's ever complained that they have wings but not flight. Just say that the wings are for show.

I use one as my fart weavers body guard. Also an extra bolt is always fun. But no i do not give him wings. Wings are reserved for nurgle princes.
