Greetings All,

I've been considering collecting Daemons as a fun side project. I like that I can use them in AOS and 40k so a dual purpose army seems good. So I worked up a list.

Now this list is primarily fluffy. There are 66 daemonetts, 6 HQs, 6 Fiends, 12 Seekers, and a sould grinder which has 6 legs. But I was curious if you thought it would at least play well. Not looking for top table optimization, just a light critique to make sure I didnt miss anything worth including.

I quite like this list. The new demon HQs for slaanesh are very powerful. You are made of tissue paper though and this army will live or die in the movement phase so make sure you enjoy that playstyle.

Oh yeah I know they are tissue paper, but really they are planned as allies for my eventual Emperor's Children army. But that'll be on hold til we get a dex for EC. So a daemon ally force seems more doable at the moment

as stated above. its a fast, hard hitting list. but it is in fact tissue paper. 

 

I would drop the elites and 2 of the hqs

 

Replace them with 2 allied slaaneshi disco lords and winged daemon prince with warptime. you can pull of around +40" of movement in a turn with 1 disco lord.

 

14" move + d6 advance. warptime

thats on average 34"

a nearby slaanesh character (i would deepstrike in) gives nearby slaanesh daemons advance + charge.

thats around 40" total movement in a turn on average.

it would help negate a lot of enemy shooting if it multicharged early game. 

 

 

 

...alternatively 3 heldrakes and multicharge turn 1 to negate a lot of enemy firepower. you will probably have to sacrifice the lot of em, but you can safely run out the rest of your army to catch up to the heldrakes while being free of a lot of enemy firepower.
