    You can't really compare it like that, you have to look at value for points as well.. Yeah, you can make a 200 point daemon prince who can beat anything.. but the challenge is making a 150 point daemon prince who can.

    Personally, I'd say all the greater daemons are reasonably good value for what they can do. I'm not sure about the bloodthirster, as it seems a bit pricey to me, but I'll agree its a bit of a beast statswise.

    I hate to say it, but I agree with your friend.. Big characters are generally a waste of points compared to more troops.

    That said, I've fielded a keeper of secrets in 750 point games, and it's done quite well at times.

    Alone, Kharn is the best, he only doesnt hit on 1s, and he has all those good khorne gifts...

    I mean, 4 wounds and feel no pain... thats some good stuff.

    not to mention feel no pain reduces instant death to regular wounds, so feel no pain does applies then. only time it doesn't is when a hit ignores armor save as well.

    FnP does not redus instant-death, only a deamonic rune can which kharne luckily has, but he still doesn't get it when hit by an instant-death blow.

    how about splitting it up then?
    1. who's the best one on one
    2. what would you rather have backing up your troops?
    3. also which in your opinion is the coolest?

    i'll just answer 3 with kharn the betrayer. just the fact he's the only thing to hit on 2's wins it. although i've always wondered what it's like using a slannesh daemon prince

    What i meant to say is that d rune makes a instant kill wound regular and therefore can used feel no pain, WITH the exception of those that ignore armor save. i believe...

    It doesn't say it stops it being instant death, it just says "takes a single wound rather than being killed outright". Add to this that it's usually, in feel no pain situations, the wording "with a strength double the target's toughness", a strength 8 weapon will still disallow kharn his feel no pain save. Besides, what more could you want - put him in with a squad of berserkers and detatch him at the last second - he's ub3r!
    The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.

    Questions like this have no answer. It depends on what they are up against.

    Anyway, this is the end to a meaningless thread. Please think before asking any more 'how long is a piece of string' type questions again.


    Ryan Dancey, Vice President of Wizards of the Coast, believed that TSR failed because of "...a near total inability to listen to its customers, hear what they were saying, and make changes to make those customers happy." Are you listening, Games Workshop ?
