Are they worth the gamble?
Aside from my Alpha Legion army, I also love Slaanesh 'fluff' army lists.
'Fuelled By Pain' on a Speedy Lord who regularly sees close-combat with hordes seems fairly God-like, but how many points is it worth? It can be 10pts and a rock-solid value if you roll the 2 on the first try, but if it takes 4 rolls and 40pts later...I'm not so sure.
The other Slaanesh Minor Powers seem powerful enough for 10 pts, but incredibly situational.
Does anyone frequently use Minor Psyker Powers? Is Fuelled By Pain as good as it looks on paper? If I could take it as a Major psychic power for 25pts I probably would to try it out. Not as good as 'Sustained Assault', but under the right circumstances it could be great.
Thoughts? Am I completely just off-base here?
Slaanesh powers are easily worth it. 3 of the 5 are good and the other 2 have to do with morale which can be good if you out number your oppoenent. For all means, if your looking to fill those last 5 points, buy a minor psychic power.
What is a Siren Bomb?
Fully kitted out Daemon Prince, including Daemonic Speed and 5 Minor Psychic Powers. You take 5 to max out on the chance to get Siren. This power basically means the enemy cannot shoot or attack you. Give him a Personal Icon, and voilÃ¡. You have a horribly powerful Daemon Prince--who cannot be shot at--within assault range of the enemy on the first turn, able to summon daemons right into the enemy deployment zone.
Some tournaments are even banning the combination stated above.
But yeah I hadn't thought of that combo specifically, but it does sound quite cheesy/powerful indeed.
Dumb question, but wouldn't you need to purchase 6 Minor powers? If you rolled a 1,2,4,5,6 you would be pretty pissed, no?
I might give this a little playtest some time soon.
When I'm going for a Siren Prince I take 6 Minor Psychic Powers. This makes him near untargetable sense he'll almost always get the power. I don't take this set-up very often, but it can sometimes be fun and effective, albiet cheesy in many people's opinion.
A question, how many armies run Librarians thanks to their high costs now? Really you only have to fear DH armies and then any chaos army with daemons fear it so there is really no change.
that depends on how friendly you are. I told my SM friend and Tyranid friend about my awesome siren bomb, and now that list is going to be fairly screwed lol.
Normal games without taileored lits. I'm sure Librarians points were over 100 so that's like half a chaos lord without upgrades. I don't see it run much anymore so if I were to run siren, I wouldn't fear seeing one.
