Title: 1850 (first) tournament list
Setite - March 7, 2010 08:23 PM (GMT)
So, I have a tournament coming up, and was wondering if anyone had thoughts or advice on my list:
Bloodthirster, might, blessings
HoT w/chariot, sorcery, legion and bolt
HoS w/mount, icon
Daemon Prince (no upgrades)
Comes out to 1850 even. I'm thinking the Thirster, both SG, HoT, HoS w/seekers and Fiends for my first wave. Any thoughts or criticism is welcome and appreciated.
Apparently, I put this in the wrong spot, should be in the 40k section..sorry. If a Mod would move it for me it would be great, instead of redundant posts...

Hey Setite. I think that I've teleported this to the right section. It's my first "move". As for comments, I'd love to help you. Unfortunately, I'm not that competent to comment on 40k lists. I will say that it would look great on the table top with all the big creatures.

yeah, I didn't notice the 40k spot till after I posted, thanks. and with all the big guys, thats what i'm hoping for...too many big juicy targets for them to decide

armour for the daemon prince is a must
how many horrors?

Drop the bloodthirster. He is overcosted and will die when your opponent turns his guns on him. You need more troops and upgrades for your daemon prince, definately armour and maybe a few things like might or god specific stuff. Do this by scaling back your seekers a little or swapping them for a slightly larger unit of daemonettes. Then think about a great unclean one if you have the points, they're awesome for they're points- you can't argue with re-rolling 2+ to wound on the majority of things. otherwise looks good. every 40k daemon army needs 6 fiends.

I have 10 horrors (whoops). The demon prince is mainly there for a scare tactic. I was kicking around the idea of dropping the dp and slannesh herald and taking a guo. I was actually planning on letting the thirster die...I was hoping that by taking him it would let my fiends, crushers and seekers get into assault range because everyone would focus fire on him, then the soulgrinders. And the Dp was just a cheap scary target for then (omg its a daemon prince!! kill it!) Granted, I've never used my daemons in a tourney before. Think I should drop the seekers or crushers?

i'd keep the bloodthrister you need the anti armour and a great old one although tough is too slow

Ok, so I changed a few things up, so let me know what you think of this:
Bloodthirster, might, blessing
HoT, bolt, master, legion, chariot
Daemonettes (13) icon
Plaguebearers (8) icon
Horrors (5) w/changeling
Soulgrinder (x2) Pleghm
Models I have: 1 of each of the greater daemons, skulltaker, the masque, 24 letters, 30 nettes, 25 plaguebearers, 5 bloodcrushers, 10 horrors, 9 flamers, 14 flesh hounds, 6 seekers, 3 daemon princes.
I just listed this in case it helps for switching things out

How did the tourne go? What was your final list? To many just go for the goods and leave the important stuff for the imagination. Details please.
