So, here are my Heralds of Tzeentch for my optimized Daemons list. I'm pretty happy with them. Thoughts?
It's a Template that kills on 4+ and auto-glances vehicles on a 4+, so...
Pros: It's great for massed troops, such as those exiting a vehicles. It's also surprisingly useful for vehicles, giving me an option against my biggest weakness, AV 14. I'll commonly use a Herald - as in, one Herald - to tie up an artillery battery, laying the template across multiple tanks. There's a trick to that, since you have to cover as much as possible of the tank being targeted but it's easy when you know how.
Cons: I have to get close to use it. Doing so is not a problem 'cause they're fast little suckers, but they're much easier to kill the closer they are to an enemy. The cost is the primary con, though. It's 30pts per model, which means that each costs 100pts without Breath and 130 with. Obviously I can do a whole lot with an extra 120 points.
So why is it even an issue? Because even one... just one... template in the right place at the right time can more than make up that 120pts across 4 models. It can simply be devastating.
And I've learned how to use it over 6 months of competitive play. I guess if I'm thinking anything it's maybe keeping Breath on my Daemon Princes, which are naturally going to be closing the distance, and removing it from my Heralds. Again, the problem with that is that Breath is naturally more useful if you have the speed to put it to best use.
Sorry to go back and forth like this. Thoughts?
Also, I'm finally finished with my mock-up Digital Head.
So why did I do it? For my display board. Because branding an icon is important. Because it told me to and it scares the shit out of me.
I've been a bit under the weather this week, but I did get some painting done. I finished up this Grey Knight Librarian for the Tim Tha...

The title says it all; this is the first commission work I've taken on that involved painting a complete army. It's fair to say it ...
