What's On The Workbench? - Khorne Daemons!

Hey guys! Moros here!

I just wanted to drop a line and keep you informed on my progress! As of now Brother C. and I have entered into a blood pact. He is going to finish painting his DA list and I am going to finish painting Ahriman's Renegades by the end of the month. We are both pretty close to our goal! I only have 2 Rhinos, the Land Raider, and 3 Defilers left to go! So wish us luck on that.

Also, the meat and potatoes of this post, the new project I've been working on. My Khorne themed Chaos Daemons army. I am still coming up with some background fluff and whatnot and they are very early stages. I have done a bunch of testing with this list and it works really well versus most conventional gun line type lists. Its a difficult list to play and requires a lot of setting up when playing. Basically have to set the stage for an overwhelming mid-late game assault and pretty much cripple or table the opponent. Here are some WIP shots!!!





Here is what I'm runnin'

There are some inherent weaknesses. Fast armies and armies with high init are going to be a big problem for me. Anybody that has some high mobility firepower is going to do a number on me. The saving grace is the winged princes are great for taking down most vehicles and jetbike type units. Also, I know that if I do get into cc its pretty much going to die!

It's a fun, fluffy list that I am having a total blast building and play-testing. I hope to have the entire army done in a month or two. I only need two more models, the heralds on chariots. I just need to pick up 1 more plastic bloodcrusher pack and the tomb kings chariots from the fantasy line and I'll be all done.

Keep an eye peeled for more on these guys and some back story coming! I haven't forgotten about Ahriman's Renegades! But I just had to do this army!

Let me know what you think, comments appreciated!

  1. yeah... not going to have my DA painted by the end of this month... I'm speeding through as much as I can, but even on a rush job I still would like to do fairly decent work. oh, plus I have an exam upcoming.. so.. yeah.. limited time 4tl.

    + don't we still need bastions for the gates scenario?

    seems like a very fun list indeed. it'll be a nice switch from your Tsons. I'm sure this list will evolve once new DE fast attack spam lists start popping up at tourneys. It'll be real interesting to see how an all CC list will fare against that. I wouldn't cut the demons short against them, but it will be fun watching your strategy change. People think this list is for 'noobs' because it doesn't require any skill. I disagree and I'm sure it will surface when matched against a new DE player.

  2. It's a blood pact! You risk the wrath of Khorne!

    But seriously, I will help you out if you need it bro, we can get this done this month just stick to the pact! Even if its only 'mostly' done finishing touches can be put on. WE CAN DO IT!

    I think my list will be massacred by fast armies with high volume of shots. But I would agree with you in saying that this army is not as straight forward as it looks. It does take a lot of 'setting the stage' for the first few turns.

    I wanna get more games with it in before I consider tourneys with it.
