Dear Friends,

I am starting a PURE daemons hedonites of slaanesh army and I would appreciate your advice.

I have a Keeper of secrets and a Shalaxi and 1 starter set and 1 rapture and wrath.

At 1000 points and with what I own is the bellow list a good one? Which is the most suitable HOST in this case? Do I have to include more heroes? Please, feel free to advice me changes and new units.

1 * Bladebringer, herald on hellflayer.
1 * Infernal enrapturess
10 * Daemonets
10 * Daemonets
3 * Fiends
10 * Seekers
TOTAL = 990 points

Which is your advice to expand to 2000 points and include keeper ans Shalaxi?

Thanks a lot.

Heroes are our bread and butter for Slaanesh. More heroes gives you more depravity points to summon more heroes and units. To keep Shalaxi and a Keeper, which is 700pts alreadyYou'll want to pick up a Contorted Epitome (second best hero model we have, after the Keepers), and possibly the Chronomatic Cogs endless spell (makes you much faster!). After all that, you have 1020 points to play with. You need three troops, which if you want all Daemons requires either one more unit of 10 Daemonettes or go Godseekers w/ a seeker chariot. You should be able to fit the rest of what you have in there with those points. You'll also want some stuff for the sideboard to summon in. Give your regular keeper the Thermal Rider Cloak (malign portents aqshy artifact), the Thrill Seeker (R&C) general's trait and be the fastest model in the game.

Personally, my current "nasty build" is:

Supreme Sybs (battalion)
Keeper
Keeper
Shalaxi
Contorted Epitome
Exalted Champion of Slaanesh (StD)

Seeker Cavalcade (battalion)
Hellstriders
Hellstriders
Seeker chariot

Chronomatic Cogs

Or switch Shalaxi to another keeper and change the chariot to a third unit of Hellstriders.

How strong a list are you looking for? Slaanesh can go up to tourney-tier potency quite easily.

Imagine three people with the same set of values but radically different emotional states, each of them believes their position is more valid than the other two, they all post using the same account, and your job is to make it coherent.

He said he wants to use KoS and Shalaxi. I figure that’s already into the realm of competitive quickly. Lol

Dear Friends

Thanks for your answers.

I play in a friendly enviorenment. I am looking for a list with the minis I like but that it is also BALANCED and with options to win form time to time.

I already own KoS and Shalaxi assembled. But although I like both a lot it is not necessary that both at once are included in the list.

I donot like hellstridres, and I like a lot Fiends and Seekers minis.

I am thinking in a list similar to the one bellow.

1920 POINTS - GODSEEKER

1 KoS
1 Infernal Enrapturness
1 The Contorted Epitome
1 The Masque
1 Bladebringer Herald on exalted Chariot

20 Daemonettes
1 Seeker Chariots
1 Seeker Chariots

5 Seekers
5 Seekers
1 Seeker Cavalcade Battalion
80 free points for CP or Endlees Spells

What do you think of the list? What would you improve?

Thanks a lot.

I think from a friendly environment standpoint that your list is pretty fun.


GW points don't bring balance. They exist purely for structure. You can get more balance from no points than you do from GW points. You however can get no structure in your game without points.

Yeah, if you’re going friendly, definitely limit to a single Keeper at 2k, and maybe leave him at home in a 1k environment. In the case of a friendly environment, my only recommendation is change the 20 Daemonettes to two units of 10. A unit of 20 gives you no benefits (as soon as a single one dies), wherein two units of 10 give you better placement options. Not a hardcore power move, just more options.

Agreed with the above; you seem to have a pretty good handle on things.
