I saw a guy on a nother post say that he would take a bike squad with BOUND mounted Daemonettes and usually get a first turn charge. I thought at best you get Daemons in on turn 2 on a 3 plus. Am I missing something? Is there a better although more expensive way to control your Daemons?
Your correct. Daemons are summoned, they can only be brought into play on turn 2 or later.

Using conventional means (which includes Bikers) you can only accomplish a second turn summon/charge with daemons quite easily. Turbo-boost the bikes to where you want the daemons to come in, next turn they arrive. This is how the Daemon-bomb tactic works.
Using a Daemon Icon in a unit of Chosen that have infiltrated close to the enemy, you can achieve daemons in close combat on turn one. But bikes don't figure into that tactic at all.
1. This, naturally, works best with fast daemons such as mounted daemonettes or furies since you need to actually be able to reach the opponent on turn 1. Coupled with a nice infiltrating lord with d-speed you are pretty much guaranteed two first turn charges. Which, incidentally, will be a fatal blow to most armies.
2. Be a bit careful about this tactic, not every opponent will think it is a barrel of laughs to be on the recieving end of this AND your infiltrate+d-speed lord. Although it is legal by RAW it is one of those things that work primarily because your opponent does not know its coming. In other words, it is just as legal as three wraithlords, and just as likely to provoke accusations of cheese.
If the radiance of a thousand suns
Were to burst at once into the sky,
That would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...

The shatterer of Worlds.
