Welcome to Librarium Online!
Awww ya this ya boy Xzibit and... no I'm not going to go into that whole rant.
So I have found myself with a converted Slaanesh Demon Prince model. I know they aren't great points wise, I know they aren't the most competitive thing in the world. It's an old CSM lash whip prince that was collecting dust because I don't play 40k anymore.
My question for all you lovely people out there is how would you kit him out for a 3k list? I'm thinking of using it instead of a sorcerer lord, probably as a supporting flanker for a block of units that needs help in combat or as a warmachine hunter (kind of like a disc lord basically).
Only limitations I have for you is I'd like for it to be level 4 (to avoid ending up with crap spells) and to have 3rd eye as I'd like to use the list as an all comers and Slaanesh is pretty gimped against some armies.
you definatly need sopofic musk on that guy. That gift was made for slaneesh. Imagine flying him behind the combat lines and hellshieking with a -1 modifier (-2 if you doom totum, which is overkill eggbasket)
Other than that you could go defence and fury of the blood god, so only warmachines will pester you. also the stream of corruption on a flyer is very nasty, since you have a very good chance of positioning yourself for maximum damage (and possible panic at -1 from said damage)
I could be dumb but I don't really see how Soporific Musk would be helpful in combination with Hellshriek. After winning combat, ya totally, but not if I just make a unit take a panic test while I'm standing next to it.
m the dumb one. It's diabolic splendor that I'm talking about. Yeah, I look stupid =P
I blame stupid, made-up names/terms
anyways, -1 ld penatly for fear, terror and panic tests is a double-bonus on the prince. As mentioned, hellshrieck would cause a -1 panic in an 18" buble. But also, since this guy causes terror he has a decent chance of chasing units down. People tend to send small units down the flank, far from the inspiriing presence buble. all he has to do is declare the charge and the target is in trouble.
True, panic tests are not a reliable way to win, but on the flip side, they are an unreialble way to cause massive devistation to your foe. Twice now playing against my brother I've paniced one of his major units off the table, caused by sheer volume of tests. given this is a balance out of many tests being passed without any concequence, but if you are clever and are able to spam the tests at your opponent, statistically speaking they are bound to fail sooner or later.
Ahhh that makes much more sense now
