Syll’Esske, the Vengeful Allegiance New Slaanesh Daemno prince.

Lets see: 

superb mini:

heavy hitter:

40kSlaaneshDatasheets-Apr23-SyllEsskePro

40kSlaaneshDatasheets-Apr23-SyllEsskeWea

 

We don't know yet his points.

But he seems a nice alternative to standard daemon prince (even if he doesn't fly, but movment 9").

I'd like to add him with my new CSM and daemon engines/discordant.

 

And for once, he looks more prince than dameon!

What do you think guys?

Stunning stunning model. Rules look amazing to. I don't think he looks 40k enough though.

I like the bottom guy of the model, but find the herald balancing on his shoulder kinda odd. Rules look incredibly nasty, can't imagine his pts cost will be cheap.

Could fix the legs into PA ones via GS, take his waifu off his shoulders, shorten that whip move him forward on the base and have the two back to back. Would look much better IMO.

I expect this will not be a HERETIC ASTARTES model, but DAEMON as its Faction, so I wouldn't get too invested in taking him as part of a CSM detachment.

Yeah, I think this falls under Daemons of Chaos just like the Keeper of Secrets in the preview. He looks like a complete nightmare to transport :P Or they? How does this work, is one named Syll and the other Esske?

I think OP's connecting point was using these with Slaanesh Daemon Engines, which would benefit pretty well from it. The preview said it will have both the Herald and Prince auras, meaning reroll 1s to hit plus +1S. If we are lucky the "Herald locus" will have a different name and will stack with the current herald's aura.

Ah, good point. It's also probably a psyker

Definitely a great model and sick rules, however it's a Codex Daemons choice not a Codex Chaos Space Marines choice, so if you want to take him you have to take a separate Daemon detachment or lose Legion benefits in your CSM detachment.

I'd definitely 40k him up if I wouldn't also use my Daemons for AoS though.

Isn't Slaanesh a sufficient keyword for a detachment which allow to mix several units of slaanesh, even if they are not all daemon?

Sure but not if you want Legion benefits from that detachment.

I would probably take the herald off his back. It looks weird. Possibly replace it with a backpack/power pack device with biomechanical tentacles coming from it as a stand in. 
I think i would also swap out the axe as it has a thousand sons feel to me.

Realized I wasn't clear, was thinking about the changes I mentioned prior for adding it as a no name DIY Slaanesh prince for CSM as an alternate model.

If you didn't like the herald on his back, you could also move the herald down to the base so its just standing there next to him.

Like many, I intend to remove the Herals, it just looks odd to be up there and a nightmare to pack away.

The model is great and 9" move is good too. Being a daemon faction isn't terrible especially if you were to ally a supreme command detachment with say 3 Lord Discordants as they advance and charge with the help of a Slaanesh daemons detachment, but at that point 9" move is still too slow and you can't ignore cover in movement phase either which a winged daemon prince doesn't have that problem.

I imagine it's about to be fairly easy to take a cheap and useful Slannesh Daemons detachment

This guy looks like major power creep, I mean i like it but I hope it's at least pointed fairly because he's an absolute beast

I'll definitely keep Syll on his shoulders, but I think I'm going to magnetize her ... potentially the whip as well. Otherwise I can't imagine how to transport them without breaking everything lol
