My beef with Chaos Daemons

My beef with Chaos Daemons

I have been upset with the Chaos Daemons codex since the book hit the shelves back in March. Yup I was one of those who spammed Flamers and Screamers and those units getting nerfed was well deserved, but they didn’t need to be hit that hard. Though this was one of the many problems with Chaos Daemons. Random is Random I know it is in the nature of fluff of Chaos Daemons to be random, but I really cannot be dealing with it. I find it makes games a lot more long winded as you have to make note of the random gifts you roll for and also random psychic powers – that’s two things randomly rolled for. I know you can remember the abilities easy enough, but when learning lists it makes it tough as you need to remember what model has what. I know you can just write them down on some paper etc, but I do not want bits of paper and other bits floating about while I am trying to play toy soldiers. It’s just another thing you have to remember about and it isn’t second nature like other 40k rules. Lets get ready to suuuuuuuuuuuccccccccccccccccccck it Because that’s exactly what the troops do; suck donkey big. All of the troops blow goats.

A guide to Daemonic Rewards

A guide to Daemonic Rewards

The Daemonic Rewards in the Chaos Daemons codex are a lickle weird; they are wargear which is randomly rolled for, just like psychic powers. This makes building your unit/model a challenge as some things aren’t a clear cut choice. Rules of the Daemonic Rewards There’s three types of rewards you can purchase; lesser, greater and exalted. All cost the same points for all models who have access to them. You can have duplicate rewards through out the army but not duplicate rewards on the model, you must re-roll if you get the same result. If you do not like what you roll for you can always swap it for the 0 or ‘primaris’ reward. Lesser Rewards 0 – Magic Weapon – Daemon can take an etherblade (S:User AP2) or if daemon of khorne take axe of khorne (instant death on wound of a 6+), daemon of tzeentch can take a staff of change (if enemy model dies then it explodes all units in D6″ take S5 AP- D6 hits), daemon of nurgle can take a

Death Guard list with New Daemons

Death Guard list with New Daemons

So, I’ve been mulling over the Daemons book (thus not much from me since it came out), and I’m starting to settle on a core list to bring most of what I want from my Death Guard while also fitting in the Daemons units. For one thing, I am happy that I have all the models built to run this: Type Unit Cost HQ Chaos Lord 65 Mark of Nurgle 15 Bike 20 Lightning Claw 15 Sigil of Corruption 25 HQ Great Unclean One 190 Lesser Reward 10 Elite Helbrute 100 Troops Cultists 50 Troops Cultists 50 Troops Plague Marines 120 7 Marines 48 2x Plasma Gun 30 Power Weapon 15 Rhino 35 Troops Plague Marines 120 7 Marines 48 2x Plasma Gun 30 Power Weapon 15 Rhino 35 Troops Plague Marines 120 2x Melta Guns 20 Rhino 35 Troops Plague Bearers 14 Plaguebearers 121 Plagueridden 5 Lesser Reward 10 Fast Attack Chaos Spawn 5 Spawn 150 Mark of Nurgle 30 Fast Attack Blight Drone 125 Fast Attack Blight Drone 125 Heavy Support Daemon Prince 145 Wings 40 Warp Forged Armor 20 Daemon of Nurgle 15 Well, all but one, I forgot about the 5th Spawn. I have 2 from the GW kit and 2 kitbash/greenstuff projects. I need a 5th, I’m considering picking up a Nurgle Toad or two to run as Beasts of Nurgle in my Daemons, I may also run them as Spawn. (note, after composing this I used some tyranid bits to make a 5th spawn). The Bike Lord is built and painted. I’ve got the 3 Rhinos although they all need a bit of work before I can paint them. Most of the requisite Plague Marines are painted. The Helbrute is undercoated. The 20 Cultists (which are zombie conversions, I’m going to use them for Cultist squads when not using Typhus, thus differentiating my Death Guard cultists from my Red Corsairs cultists) are almost entirely assembled, and some have paint on them.

Army Lists: Chaos Daemons ‘Daemonzilla’ – 2,000 points

Army Lists: Chaos Daemons ‘Daemonzilla’ – 2,000 points

Over the next few days I’ll be pumping out some Daemon lists. First one I’ll be knocking out is a Daemonzilla list, everyone loves big monsters, right? Starting with the HQ then, I’ll take a Bloodthirster as this is the monster of monsters. Throw on two greater rewards for survival boosting, easy peasy. Next need some anti air support and we will get that from Daemon Princes. The Princes need to have lash of despair (S:User assault 2D6) which will damage flyers nicely, don’t forget vector strike. To take lash of despair the Prince needs to be a daemon of slaanesh. Add in wings of course and then warp forged armour to keep this dude safe.

New Daemons – first impression

New Daemons – first impression

The new hotness aka Chaos Daemons codex hit the shelves weekend just gone. I picked it up and I have got to say I am pretty disappointed in it. It is also the first hardback codex I have brought, which I feel is way over priced for what you get. Sorry for the negative start by the way. Hopefully my thoughts on the Chaos Daemons codex are better: The Good… Daemons lost eternal warrior, this is fair and makes them easier to deal with – however the loss of deep strike deployment doesn’t balance this out anymore. A lot of Daemons are cheaper – 90 points for 10 Plaguebearers or 10 Daemonettes. Greater Daemons are cheaper, well most of them.
