It does not appear that our CSM daemons (Warp Talons, Heldrakes, etc.) can be affected by CD character auras (e.g. a Bloodthirster of Insensate Rage’s Greater Daemon Ld aura) that require the keywords DAEMON and one of the four god:
for example Khornate Warp Talons have the Keyword `Daemon` and `Khorne Mark of Chaos` but not `Khorne`.
Should this be changed/cleared up, I’ll edit the post.

On page 10 of index chaos under <Mark of chaos> any unit with the keyword <mark of chaos> must nominate the appropriate keyword being Tzeentch, Slaanesh, Nurgle, Khorne. So the keyword becomes "Khorne" not "Mark of Khorne" so a unit in the Heretic Astartes list with both "demon" and "khorne" would benefit from the bloodthirster aura.

Thanks for the compilation

If a Heretic Astartes datasheet does not specify which Mark of Chaos a unit has, it will have the <Mark of Chaos> keyword. When you include such a unit in your army, you must nominate which Mark of Chaos the unit has. Then you simply replace the <Mark of Chaos> keyword in every instance on that units datasheet with one of the following: Khorne, Tzeentch, Nurgle, or Slaanesh. Note that psykers cannot have the Khorne keyword.


It looks like there is no difference. I think marked Warp Talons would gain +1S from a herald.

Correction: Khârn's aura allows rerolling to-hit rolls for World Eaters within 1 inch. I.e. not just 1's.

It looks like a Dark Apostle is the most useful if just running Legion units (especially as it's so cheap), but a Daemon Prince is better if running CSM and Daemons together.

Icons of flame and icons of despair give aura effects as well. Flame gives a mortal wound to any enemy unit that rolls a 6 on a d6 within 12" and despair is -1 enemy unit LD within 3".

If you are including debuffs the Icon of Despair gives -1 LD to enemies within 3" of the unit and Raptors make enemy units within 1" add +1 to their morale roll.

Chaos Lords that take Daemonic Mounts gain the Daemon Keyword so they are effected auras that benefit their patrons daemons.  So for example a Slaanesh Lord on a Steed near a Herald would benefit from +1 strength.

I don't think so unfortunately , I'v just only seen the Palanquin lord but his ability specifically targets Nurgle <Legion> models so normal daemons wouldn't be affected only daemon CSM units that shared the same legion keyword
Edit: yeah both the steed, disc and jugger lords are the same as well

Just re-read the entry your are correct the Chaos Lord doesn't effect daemons; but can be effected by daemon auras that target "[GOD]  DAEMON".

I have been looking at various daemon combos, and one I plan on using is this;

A Thousand Sons focused list with a changeling added in.  The Changeling is fairly cheap for what you are getting and is not bad given the correct circumstance (dueling an HQ on the charge)

 

The Locus of Transmogrifcation is somewhat insane given the Thousand Sons list, requires "Tzeentch Daemon" to activate and the list of things this encompasses within the chaos marine range is rather large.

 

Warp talons, All daemon engines (Defiler, mauler/forge fiend, Heldrake), Sorcerers on Discs, Daemon princes, Possessed, and an even bigger point; Magnus the Red.

I plan on building a Rubric focused list that will have the changeling, Magnus, and a couple of Daemon engines / daemon prince, 1-2 sorcerers on Disc behind the line of Rubricae. The Rubricae will benefit from Magnus / Sorcerers re-roll invuls of a 1 and re-rolls to hit from the prince/Magnus.

Magnus and the engines (along with any exposed sorcerer/daemon prince) will highly benefit from that lovely -1 to hit anything targeting them. (Making the Dakkafiends ludicrously hard to kill IMO)  Hide behind the line, and of course anyone who engages the rubricae will get exactly 1 turn of swinging before the flyers jump over the line and proceed to dig out the dust bunnies. It of course also benefits magnus, making him even MORE difficult to kill then he already is while supporting the army.

At least in theory this is what I would like to run, it looks like a cool list, has some unique overlapping buffs, It may end up being decent on the table....I shall make it a point to find out soon!   Opinions and Criticisms welcome!

I edited in the icon of despair, the Raptors, that Lords on mounts gain the keyword Daemon and added in mounted sorcerers. :)

Give it a check over if you have the chance :)

Have you considered summoning in the Changeling? That'll allow you to still max the command points.

The Changeling is certainly a good choice for any Tzeentch army.
