Title: [1850] Second starter list
Description: I'm back, really...

Alright, so after working around and trying some other armies, I decided that yeah, Demons are cool enough to pursue.

That in mind, this project and list are an attempt to both run something nasty and have some fun conversion possibilities. The goal is to have a 'Daemon Forge' themed list, so that Keeper of Secrets is actually a Wraithlord model with no legs and a long snake tail, and some extra arms scratch-built, for example.

Lord of Change
250

Keeper of Secrets
Transfixing Gaze, Unholy Might
225

3 Flamers
105

3 Flamers

5 Fiends of Slaanesh
150

10 Plaguebearers w/ Icon
175

9 Plaguebeaers w/ Icon
160

10 Horrors w/ Icon, Changeling
200

Soul Grinder w/ Phlegm
160

Soul Grinder w/ Phlegm
160

Soul Grinder w/ Phlegm
160

Total: 1850
11 Units

Now, the basic idea is to either throw a mass of durable targets at him (3 Soul Grinders, 2 Greater Daemons) or the horde (2 flamers, Fiends, 2 Plauge bearers, Horrors). depending on what I'm dealing with. The other thought is to make sure that both sides come down with a plaguebearer squadron as an anchor-point for the rest of the army.

I'm aiming for durable troops; hence Plaguebearers and Tzeentchian horrors.

The elites slots are all there for the killyness. I think we can all agree that Flamers are hell on wings, and the Fiends are like a guided missile. That unit's good for 30 I5 attacks on the charge, so I think they're good for nailing most things in assault pretty hard.

Soul Grinders? ...they shoot things.

The main debate I'm having myself is whether or not to trade out the Lord of Change for a Bloodthirster. I'm also kicking around throwing out a Grinder for a Daemon Prince of some stripe or another; the thought is a Nurgle model with Noxious Touch, Iron Hide, and Cloud of Flies.

Thoughts?

Mark 2 drops a Soul Grinder and Plaguebearer for a Nurgle DP and a Bloodthirster. For the DP, well, he has a 'move' phase, a 'run' phase, and an assault phase. This also cuts down on the deep-strike footprint I'd need, since, well, Soul Grinders is BIG and all...

I feel that against vehicles, I'm in decent shape. Against lighter rear armor, even the Fiends can do a number to 'em in melee. (potentially 30 S5 attacks to the rear...law of averages says that if I'm hitting 'em on 4+ and dealing with AV10, I'm good for a couple of pens at least.). Otherwise, the Keeper of Secrets and the Bloodthirster will go smashy-smashy on 'em. I feel like I've got a decent bit of shooting, between the Horrors and Grinders as well.

The other thought is to go double Keeper of Secrets, and maybe add Pavane to them both...and probably go back up to 10 and 10 on the plaguebearer squads.
