Ok, i am thinking of starting a slaanesh army and i am wondering is it better to have Daemonettes mounted or have them not mounted?, i mostly hear of people using them without the mounts, but i am just curious.
Without if you have the troops space is better for points, thats what i find personally.

the simple question is do you think the speed and mutation are worth the extra 12(?) points
your speed is going to give you a bigger target base and should get you into combat straight away against hopefully a unit you can earn the majority of points back against with the rather extreme 4 rending attacks per model
however you are paying a lot of points to get those models
against a hoard army where you are likely to get lots of targets anyway i'm inclined to say that the demonnetes on there own are a better option as assuming you can get in on first turn you are getting more attacks for your points
against armies with high mobility and high costs units (like tau battlesuits, marines, some eldar) where the speed will scare them and your rending attacks can bag you something big its worth upgrading to the mounter demonnettes. The main difference as i see it is the extra fear factor of the big charge range and opponents not being able to manouver away from those deadly 4 attacks on the charge with Initiative busting scream.
hope this helps
