Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've look over and over trying to find a reason to use Steed of Slaanesh for my Lord/Hero, but I noticed something... the steed does not have the Always Strike First and Poison Attack like the Mounted Daemonette's own mini Steed of Slaanesh. Is there a FAQ or somewhere I missed reading?
Hmm no, unfortunately i don't think so.
Maybe the problem is that SoC could use rules that differ from the original HoC book ones...
I'd say let's wait for the new book and hope the best!
It's better, it's shiny, it's warped...it's Chaos.
Yea, hopefully it gets added to the mount in the update.
One word of caution when using this mount: compaired to a chaos lord, a steed of slaanesh is substantially easier to wound. If you don't manage to cause enough wound on your opponent he maybe able to win combat by pounding the steed since it's considered a monsterous mount.
IMO an even better upgrade would be the removal of the extra wounds and just make it a standard mount that can't be targeted. This would hurt your B2B frontage from being a smaller base, but would provide 1 more armor bonus plus the inability to have the mount scrapped out from under you.
Basically, Steed of Slaanesh is worthless to take then? Anyone have successful experience using them?
Well, I once ran an Exalted slaanesh Champion as some kind of (expensive) war machine hunter/general havoc creator.
It is somewhat useful, especially if you're low on other fast-moving units (could be due to your general's chaos mark you can't field screamers or your opponent fields some flying-forbidden artifact etc. et.al... )
In the first turn I kept him advancing slowly with a small unit of slaanesh Warriors (to protect him from enemy shooting, but in the next turn he was charging out of the unit wrecking enemy war machines (and a bunch of dwarven quarrelers while he was at it )
Of course I kept him rather cheap, just flail and shield, no magic stuff (well, as cheap as a mortal chaos character can be kept...0
Although I do have to add that I mainly field infantry; with a more cavalry-orientated list the movement difference might not count as much.
It ain't easy bein' green... :-)
