I'm considering adding a GUO or Mamon to my army list but cant decide which one to take. GUO comes in at 160 base with the optional add-on of cloud of flies. Mamon comes in at 185 points base which but has no add-ons and no cloud of flies. He does however have a template weapon which is str 1 ap 3 (poisoned (2+).
Stat wise Mamon has one extra (WS), (BS), (T) and 3 extra (I) but only has a +5 save but still has FNP.
What i'm getting at is, is the 25 points worth the extra stats he gets ?.
Daemon Prince - Mamon is part of the Imperial Armour Vol 7 which I'm under the understanding that he can be used in standard 40K. If i'm wrong that GUO it is.

All FW units are "unofficial" and are up to your opponents to allow the use of FW units in your games (or TO in tournements but that generally isn't allowed in such cases).
That said, the real difference is that GUO has 2+ poison in combat and 4++, while Mamon has a 2+ Poison template and I5 instead. The templete would be the real reason to pay the extra cost, since it's better then our Breath of Chaos but if you gave BoC to the GUO then they would be pretty much the same, just slightly different in combat.
Does Mamon have any special rules (or lack of special rules)?
basicly they have exactly the same special rules, only GUO can buy options where Mamon has none, although Mamon comes with Noxious Touch standard and the template weapon.
With the extra stat's and the template weapon, the only thing GUO has really over Mamon is the 4++ save.
All that for only 25 points. If he can be used in tournaments, I just dont see how you could pass him up for the extra points.
He has something that makes him unique I'm sure. I have my IA book at home, I will look after work.
The REAL question here is, how much money do you want to spend? If you have no spending limit....mamom for sure. Use him as a GUO or DP in 40k games that dont allow FW stats.
PS. Most tournament do NOT allow imperial armour units. (adepticon gladiator tournament does)
Eldar -APOC- 6500 Points
Chaos Daemons -Fate Crusher- 3500 Points
Grey knights - 1000 Points
Keeper of Secrets w/musk ^_^
(Seriously though, if Mamon indeed has T7, then I'd definitely prefer him, because it'd mean he's impervious to lasgun fire and most non-meq infantry close combat attacks)
