How many of you have played with Daemonic Infestation and how do you deal with it? In 1500 point games.
Why use science and education when ignorance and superstition will work just as well.
It's really annoying, just when you think you've smeared the board with a unit of daemonettes, they come right back in your face. In other words, more of an annoyance than anything else, keep on your toes and it's rarely dangerous.
1500 years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the Universe
500 years ago everybody knew the world was flat
5 minutes ago you knew humans were alone on the planet
Imagine what you'll know tomorrow
However from time to time it can really put a hurt on you. First off if the Daemons are bloodletters, furries, or chaos hounds you could be in some trouble. Though they can't take an objective once you have wiped out a unit, some bloodletters can make sure that you are unable to control an objective near the board edge once you have destroyed them. Furries and hounds are a pain because of their speed, resilience, and abiliity to wreak general havoc on your ability to dicatate who fights what and where. You can't just ignore daemons, but what it means is that you have to put them at a lower priority than chaos marines, and eliminating a squad while is worse than leaving a squad with a few members in a prime position and then trying to wipe them out the last turn.
You might find that blasting the unit of Daemons down to a small unit size (one or two) and then leaving them alone as much as possible will help lessen the effect of their return.
True enough.You might find that blasting the unit of Daemons down to a small unit size (one or two) and then leaving them alone as much as possible will help lessen the effect of their return.
The problem is when they assault a unit of their own accord, then you have no choice but to kill them.
An enemy who knows he/she benefits from the sustained assault special rule can afford to be much more reckless in his game play.
Each time a full unit of daemons crashes into a unit of yours, they get smaller and weaker, whereas he doesnt need to worry about such things, confident that they will return if destroyed at full strength.
In this instance you find yourself facing enemies who simply come charging across the board as assault units or even as unlimited cannon fodder/meat shields for the shock troops behind them.
It does keep you on your toes a little,
