Welcome to Librarium Online!
I wanted to know how everyone has been fairing in their games against Chaos Daemons recently.
From what I have gathered from other threads Ogre Bulls aren't a very popular core choice which is a shame because I think Bulls with hand weapons would be great against all of the T3 core troops my opponents are going to be fielding. Not to mention ironfists look so darn cool . With gut magic augmenting the strength of Bulls with hand weapons I'm having hard time wanting to follow the 'way of the irongut'. What are your guys thoughts on this, specifically where daemons are concerned.
Oh, I'm also looking forward to opening up a can o' sharp stuff on some Greater Daemons when i hit the 2k pt mark! :happy:
Never used OKs (yet) so I can't help you with the Irongut thing, but vs the Greater Daemons, the Hunter looks like he can be tooled up to have some pretty cool stuff.
against daemons ok generally run into the same problems as when facing undead except daemons are faster, stronger and got a save we can't reduce!
daemons are one of the armies ok's got a uphill battle to beat but as with undead ur weapon of choice is the basic bull with additionaal hand weapon cuz really all we can do is hit and chew and hope for the best lucky for us daemons can't bring back dead models so if we can lay in enough attacks we can make em feel it
as for greater daemons sharp stuff won't do jack as they arn't mansize/unit str 2 models they are immune to the normal killing blow luckily the gd of tzeentch and nurgle can be pawned by a tenderizer toting tyrant who also has a 50/50 shot at the slaaneshi one however theres nothing in the ok arsenal that can reliably stand infront of the thirster (and really name 1 thing in the entirety of fantasy that can>)
against these i know a few who are experimenting with a hunter equipped with the beastkiller name
"take my love, take my land, take me to where i cannot stand, i don't care i'm still free you can't take the sky from meee" ;- firefly
"i'm gonna grant you your greatest wish i'm gonna show you a world without sin" ;- serentiy
"I am a leaf on the wind, watch how i soar" ;- serenity
I think what he means is that str 2 can't hurt toughness 6 models. Gd of TZ should never get into combat with a Tyrant because it flys.
I don't see how a Hunter would help no mater what you give him. The two greater daemons that a tyrant can't deal with are the ones that a hunter can't either. Fying models should NEVER be forced into combat with a model that has 90 degree LOS unless it is magically or otherwise forced to. I suppose the Hunter could shoot at them but then he can't move will at best hit on 4's and wound on fives. An then he has a dismal chance at causing enough wounds to make that worth it.
@ the original post.
Extra HW's will be getting more favor from me. BTW don't forget that Immune to Psych units CAN NOT flee. It should help you set up more bull charges.

Please try to clean up your spelling and grammer. Also proper use of capitalization would be appreciated. No one is saying this has to be a perfect English paper, but your posts do need to be written in such a way so that they are easily understandable. -Spector
