Short and Sweet Daemons Update

So you probably know by now the FLGS is engaged in an army-build project, to recap: random roll then build to 2500, with tournaments on the way.  I rolled Daemons, thus the recent emphasis; hopefully you like it, we'll be referring to this all year long!

I've been asking for help along the way.  Here's the army Stelek recommended.


Mounted Herald of Slaneesh x4
Fiends x6 x3
Daemonettes x15 x2
Plague Bearers x7 x4
Fleshhounds x12 x3
Flightless DP's x3

The idea, of course, is torrent and overwhelm.  The Heralds can, if I'm not mistaken, join the fiends on the drop - an idea I love, but I missed the significance the first time I looked over this list.

I'm going to build in this general direction, but I'm giving myself some leeway for changes along the way, as I learn how to play the army.  Also, I'm not sold on the Fleshhounds... a poster wrote they weren't as effective in his list as he would have liked.  You can find that here, along with other assorted goodies.
Finally, here is a pic of a similar build: I snagged it just to keep me motivated.

Thats a nice army Brent. You going for something same colour scheme?

Brent said...

For once my color scheme will be pretty much out-of-the-book, with Khorne reds, Nurgle greens/browns, Slaneesh purples, and Tzeentch blues.

I'm giving my DP a lot of love; hopefully you'll like him - I'll be done in the next couple of days and will post him.

The daemonette drider/fiends are a little inspiring..

I might do something similar for my Warp Beasts (use the spideys the gobby spidey riders from Skull Pass or something)...not that I'll be using them in 2500 points, but would be a neat little conversion.

Now I'll have to go dig in my bitz box and see if they'll work or not. I might also create some driders for my grotesques... since they are dark elves essentially.

Thats the route I went with my fiends.

It's hard not to feel sorry for you, but you'll have some pretty toys at the end, if nothing else. And Daemons play a different game, so you'll have a fun alternate army to play around with.

I can see you putting these on magnetic basing, ready to become a WFB superarmy...

Brent said...

Man, JWolf - that's a loaded comment! Yes to both. I'm facing an uphill battle this year, and with the competition in my local store, much less the Texas scene, I'm not promising miracles.

But I've had the same thought about WFB - in fact, the Lone Wolf is on the horizon.

What's a good focus for Daemons? Tzeentch? Khorne? Do tell!


Bruce said...

Nobody plays that game anymore, remember.

Jwolf said...

WFB Daemons? Everything in the book is good. You'll probably want some Flamers and a Bloodthirster, just to make sure everyone hates you.

Gauthic said...

Too late, JWolf, we already do ;)

I will keep a eye out for the daemon prince Brent ;)

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

Stalking Jawaballs since 2009.

Jawaballs: "My butt just tightened up."

Brent, preferred 2-to-1 over Not Brent in a recent, scientific poll.

Brent: emptied the Kool Aid and DRINKING YOUR MILKSHAKE with an extra-long straw.

Unicorns don't exist.

Home of the Stormbuster, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

"You should stop writing for everyone else and worry about your crappy blog." - Anon.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Strictly Average: The Home of Hugs and Gropings.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Competitive is Consistent.

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Loquacious: "No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Hugs & Gropings or Stalks Jawaballs into Brent's little tribute."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
