Androgynous Daemon Prince of Slaanesh





Norwalk, Connecticut

Godseekers Host (+1 to charge)

Keeper of Secrets (fire cloak: +4M/Fly, run and charge command trait)

Shalaxi Helborn (or a second generic Keeper)

Contorted Epitome

Seekers x10
Seekers x10
Seekers x10

Hellstriders x5
Hellstriders x5
Hellstriders x5

Seeker Cavalcade battalion (6" pile-in, additional command point, additional item)

Chronomatic Cogs
Soulsnare Shackles (removed if I have a normal Keeper replace Shalaxi)

2000pts on the money

List is speed, speed, speed! Nowhere on the table is safe from a turn 1 charge from the Seekers, Hellstriders, and at least one KoS. The shackles (if I take Shalaxi) are for preventing enemies from running away or getting to objectives. Certainly useless early on. Epitome sits in back field for the first turn to stay out of 30" dispel bubble to get off the cogs, then goes forth to help gain depravity points. Seekers have a 16" move, 2D6 run, 2D6+3" charge), Hellstriders are only slightly slower and can sit behind the Seekers and whip enemies from safe range. That 6" pile-in should be fun. Magic isn't picked yet, because I don't remember perfectly what each spell does. Second artifact goes on Epitome if Shalaxi is in the list, on second Keeper if I forgo Shalaxi. I'm considering skipping Shalaxi, because then I'll have two Keepers who can bestow "fight twice" on two different units, along with "fight last" on their opponents. Could/should be a couple dead or crippled tough enemy units to open up turn one. Total of 4 drops (3 heroes, 1 battalion).

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

I’m gonna try this out this afternoon. Got a couple proxies cuz I don’t have two of the units of Hellstriders, but I wanna see how nasty it is. Either this or the other list I put together with a Charon-boat stand in.

Let us know how it goes! I usually stick to pretenders cause I hate casting acquiescence.

Nearly 3k+ points of Slaanesh (AoS)

Yeah, I thought about doing that too. Could be brutal!

So I ran a variation because this felt brutal for a friendly (and I didn’t have some of the hellstriders). 2 keepers, 2 enrapturesses, Syll’Eske, 3 units of 5 seekers, 1 unit of striders, 2 units of 10 Daemonettes, Cogs, and the Slaanesh wheels endless spell. 1980 in total. I ran Godseeker Host, my General was able to move SO fast that he got to the far side of the board immediately. Nailed multiple charges first turn and ended up getting a grand total of 75 depravity points over the course of two and a half turns. I summoned a Keeper (no spares and one died), an exalted chariot, 3 seeker chariots, and a unit of Daemonettes with it when all said and done. And I forgot my depravity points from charges turn 2&3!

Yeah I find depravity stupidly easy to get. Pretenders is the hardest to get depravity from their mechanic since the keeper tends to just murder everything. Invaders and Godseekers easier to do since its all about crossing the board which is what you want to do anyways.

Godseekers feels easiest. The +1 to charge isn’t very necessary. You take Godseekers for the charge-based DPs and chariots as battleline. And the R&C command trait.
