Most people say you MUST model a DP, but since it says CAN claim to be a DP....... I don't know, and since the FAQ doesn't change the text, I say you don't HAVE to.
He can't just run fast? Superman does it...numberofthebeastxxx said:for speed, he must have some kind of bonus locomotion. I've seen people disqualified in RTT's for not following the WYSIWYG rule.
That's what I was thinking. I guess it's all up to how strict the Judge wants to be. I would let it fly.hsin_dragon said:He can't just run fast? Superman does it...
The only thing that you have to model onto a lord is stature and flight- but it all depends on how WYSIWYG you want to be. The rules for stature say that any model with it "should be at least 10' tall (to scale!)" and besides, you can't really get away with saying that your Raptor-leading Lord of choppy death flies 'by magic'. In that case I'd agree with a strict RTT judge in saying thats cheeky.Black Majik said:So he doesn't have to be uber huge? thats good then. I have mutated him slightly, like painting his armour so that he looks like he has an aura, and making his upper body strength more prominant. i modelled him around the old lord model, cos the new one doesnt look as good IMO. Do alpha legion even have Daemon Princes anyway? I assume that at least one of them must be. Although Alpharius was never ascended to the rank of Daemon Prince...hmmmm
But they wont. The purpose of dem. speed is so that your lord can move as cavalry. And cavalry move fast. "He moves his legs really fast like the roadrunner" doesn't count. He has sourcerous powers that make him move fast? Then model it... Make him floating or standing on a floating platform, model fire shooting out of his shoes... Anything. It's really not that hard.Soviet_Tau_Commander said:That's what I was thinking. I guess it's all up to how strict the Judge wants to be. I would let it fly.
Thos are actualy some pretty good suggestions. Thanks.Dodge said:If you want to show speed like he is running fast you can model it without extra limgs or roller skates. A: pose him so he looks like he is running(like bezerkers) B: have chains and plumes and other loose stuff flailing backwards and C: big blood splatter and mud splatter to show his speedy, unstoppable charge.
Well the advantage is giving him all those super cool gifts of course! The obvious disadvantage (not much of one) is the one you mentioned, fighting armies with anti-dameon stuff. But even if you happen to face an army with that, daemons usually still win the day. As it's rare that even a Daemonhunter player will deck his guys out with anti-daemon wargear (expensive), unless he faces chaos alot (tends not to be the case), or he knew he was playing you and specifically designed his list against yours (so its not a tournament anyway).HeXsim said:Is there any other advantages to being a daemon other than just having over 50 points of daemon abilities and a kewl looking model? Only thing i'd see as a advantage/disadvantage is losing stats fighting against an army thats good vs daemons..
