So the long and short of it is, I'm finally in position to buy a second army outright, and I am hearing the call of Chaos! As a long time Dark Eldar player, I decided to switch gears and play their counterpart Slaanesh.... I want to play something completely different. My criteria is a fast, melee focused army, with a bunch of big gribblies and to (finally)have an effective psychic phase...

So on to the list

++ Total: [112 PL, 14CP, 2,000pts] ++

So the basic plan is to advance and charge, buffing with the psychic phase and stratgems (14 cp!). The daemonettes will act as a sceen, screen sweeper, or deepstrike treat, depending on the situation. The Daemon Princes and the Epitome prioritize flyers and backfield threats while the Daemon engines and the Lord Discordant hit the front lines...

As to competivness, looking at friendly lgs tournament level.... Nice, but with bit if you know what I mean.

So am I on the right track? Nothing here is written in stone, with the exception of Huron, not only is he one of my favorite characters, he's also the only chaos model I actually own!!

All help appreciated!

Hi Xambrien,

This looks similar to a list concept I was toying around with one of my buddies for his (casual) slaanesh army. The list looks fun and in an opponent's face! Are you planning on sticking a herald close to the daemon engines; the engines should be able to benefit from the herald's locus of swiftness right? For what it's worth, the only thing I can see is some trouble with is an opponent's longer ranged units.

Best,

Blackberry

Thanks for the comments Blackberry,

As to the heralds, yes, they are there to buff the the Daemon engines and Daemonettes with advance and charge and the +1 Str through their locus. I figure with all the fast moving stuff getting right up in my opponents grill first turn, I can force some bad decisions. Your right, though is does lack shooting, and is probably casual at best. Any thoughts on how to make it better, while still keeping to the Slaaneshi theme?

The csm section should take advantage of endless cocaphony.
So like havocs with 4 chaingats or oblitz. Replace the marine troops with cultists.

Your right, I definitely need more shooting, if only to to get rid of chaff or backfield campers, plus it will definitely give me some tactical flexibility. Keeping the Marines for 3 extra cp.

Couple of contemptors, look nice w/ endless cacphony. Expanded squad of Marines w 2 reapers and downsized the daemons....

Looks better to me, but you guys are the experts.
