1998 I would much rather fiends than the flamers, but I would like to try the flamers out and see how it plays. Not to mention points are a thing...

  1. Do you think just 20 Plague Bearers are going to be enough now that they can't go to ground or run and with the changes to FnP?

    Oh, and you'll have 4 flamers for just 92pts once the update comes out. That'll free up 24 more points for you, or a 5th flamer in one of the squads.

  2. I really don't think 20 plaguebearers is going to be enough honestly. I probably should take more, or horrors/demonettes since they run. My biggest fear is actually someone killing off my troops.

    I don't know much about the demon codex update. Is it a total revamp of the book, or is it just a redo of a few units?

    1. Redo of a few units with like 2 new units added. Flamers and Screamers got a massive boost. And slaanesh chariots are actually vehicle chariots that come in squadrons of up to 3 for 120pts (i.e. 40pts per model). Basically this:

      Flamers
      : +1 Wound, +1 Init
      : 23 points a model
      : 5 points to add a character with +1 attack (good for eating challenges)
      : Max size of 9
      : No more bolt

      Screamer Changes
      : +1 Wound, +1 Init, 3 attacks
      : 25 points a model
      : Lamprey's Bite : AP 2, STR 5, Armorbane
      : Max size of 9
      : Jetbikes

      HellFlayers
      : Cost the same as a bare bones C:SM predator
      : Aluress has same stats as daemonette with +1 Attack
      : AV 11 on front and sides, 2 HP
      : Gain extra attacks = to the number of unsaves wounds from hammer of wrath hits.

      Seeker Chariots
      : Come in squads of 1-3 (can combine with Exaulted)
      : 20 points cheaper than a Hellflayer
      : Aluress has same stats as daemonette with +1 Attack
      : AV 11 on front and sides, 2 HP
      : Rolls 1d6 hammer of wrath hits for every hull point left. STR 4, AP-, Rending
      : Exaulted chariots have 4 HPs for more hammer of wrath hits.

      Herald of Slaanesh
      : 10 point discount if you put her on a chariot (you still need to pay for the herald)
      : The old chariot is no longer an option -- it seems to have been replaced

    2. Seeker Chariots are Heavy Support and the Hell Flayer thing is Fast Attack.
