    1500/2000pt Tzeentch Daemonic Legion

    After the fantastic success of my Ogre army, I thought I'd give a completely different army a go. Though elite like Ogres, the core gameplay of a Tzeentch legion revolves around magic and shooting (magically). So here is my list:

    1500:

    1x Exalted Daemon: MoT, Diabolic Spleandour, Master of Sorcery
    Unit Total: 340

    1x Daemonic Herald: MoT, Diabolic Spleandour, Dispel Scroll
    Unit Total: 240

    16x Horrors
    Champion
    Unit Total: 289

    16x Horrors
    Champion
    Unit Total: 289

    3x Changebringers
    Unit Total: 210

    4x Screamers
    Unit Total: 132

    Army Total: 1500
    Models: 41
    PD: 8
    DD: 7

    My plan in this list is to have the Horrors in the middle with support from the Herald, walking into range and letting off large amounts of firepower. On one flank the Exalted Daemon will fly down one side, and the Changebringers down the other, with support from the Screamers. The Screamers will then go hunting for any war machines or mages that are causing problems. The list will win from sheer magic superiority backed up by very good shooting and CC.


    2000:
    Lord of Change
    Unit Total: 665

    1x Daemonic Herald: MoT, Disc Diabolic Spleandour, Dispel Scroll
    Unit Total: 285

    16x Horrors
    Champion
    Unit Total: 289

    16x Horrors
    Champion
    Unit Total: 289

    3x Changebringers
    Unit Total: 210

    5x Screamers
    Unit Total: 132

    1x Tzeentch Chariot
    Unit Total: 140

    Army Total: 1998
    Models: 42
    PD: 10
    DD: 9

    This list will play much like the other. The Horrors still form the main part of the army. The Lord of Change will charge down one side of the field, with the Changebringers. The Herald, Chariot and Screamers will advance down the other side of the field.

    What do you guys think?

    An herald can only have 25 pts worth of daemonic gifts, and they daemons don't have access to nothing else IIRC.

    trade the lord of change for a prince if you like and get another herald for the same chost, that 2 more levels of magic for free.

    I have also started a Tzeentch Deamonic legions army (along with Khorne and Nurgle) and was wondering if you nice people could give me a shunt in the right direction...

    Here it is:

    20 Horrors and command

    4 Screamers

    9 Changebringers (converted)

    Chariot (converted and painted :yes: )

    Should I take a Deamonic Herald or Exalted Deamon? I think you can take a Herald on a Disk Of Tzeentch... that means I could field him with my Changebringer.


    Any expansions or balancing? Also if you have the time... how would you use the models to attack? Flanking? Straight up the middle? I really don't have a clue.

    Thanks, Chris xx

    Well…
    In the Daemonic herald entry it stands "cannot be the army general".
    Secondly, there is a daemonic gift named "spell breaker" that has exactly the same effect and point cost as dispel scroll, maybe you could use that one instead?

    You should include a minimum of 2 units of 16 horrors for some magic spell fire. (remember the unit champions are Lv 1 wizards)

    I also think 9 changebringers to be way over the top!

    At 2000, you could include an exalted daemon and a Prince for the cost of the Greater Daemon, but you'll get more power/dispell dice, and 2 non-large target terror sources.

    Yo dude
    You have added up your points for these screamers.
    They are 165 points for 5 not 132

    I like the general look of your army.
    Could go far.

    Good work

    What about greater icon of chaos and unholy icon? They are really helpful parts of a daemonic legion. Look on the storm of chaos website to find the rules for them.
