8th Edition Daemons, whats your opinion? : Warhammer

chaos daemons 8th edition codex review

Alas, as badass as he looks, this guy will be pressed to make his points back. My chaos vindicator is also not too happy, nor are all my Land Raiders with dirge casters, all 4 of them! Cons: Grey Knights with Pyscannons. The HoK came out worse than before due to having to buy a Locus and lowered S. They can also buy wings and a slew of equipment to make them even deadlier. So, to make this one pack really good; add Karanak and upgrade another model to rending capable.

I find him useful for tying up enemy units in combat, as they are only hitting him on a 6+ in most cases, seriously hindering their combat ability. On a 4+ that unit-suffers a mortal wound. Well, they are partly compensated by the strategists, which are really good in this codex - almost all are useful, and they force you to think and create various combinations. This makes them a natural targets for Boon of Change. In a nutshell: Flamer death for everyone! Stick him behind something with many Wounds Beasts of Nurgle anyone? You may want to think about buying the Kazyk the Befouled model to use instead of the Epidemius one. He also gets two new stratagems to use.

St Andrews wargaming: 8th Edition Assassins Codex Review

chaos daemons 8th edition codex review

There is an argument to be made for giving your Bloodthirster the Armor of Scorn so it can zoom up the board without getting shot off the table. Shooty units can deploy almost anywhere, most have a decent range and can shoot from wherever they end up. Not great at shooting, assault, or mobility. Which is perfect for finally making hordes of Daemonettes viable. I started off using mixed God lists which fell on their face- no no no, they didn't fall, they were testing gravity. Takes 8 at almsot double the points to get this number of attacks.

This message was edited 3 times. However, as with Acquiescence, bear in mind the way Random Movement works and that you may be setting your Keeper up for being charged in the flank. If you roll an 11 or 12 on the strength, the hits become 3d6. Pros: Hard to kill, about as hard to kill as well 2 or 3 Plaguebearers. While not as good as a conscript unit with a commissar to back them -- they are a solid way to squat on an objective. You'll have to accept that as part of your army.

So that is it for my initial thoughts on Khorne Daemons this time around, I'll probably keep playing test games with them, try out Furies and the Special Characters with some proxies I have lying around, but I think I have them fairly well set in my mind now. The only downside is that you have to fire at a separate target. And there are two more legions to come soon…. It's back, but this time you only get one Wound back per combat phase. This results in a unit that hits of 3s, wounds elite models like Russes on 4s and does an average of 3. He also has some decent shooting ability with his Executioner Pistol.

Stelek's 40k Daemons of Chaos Review

chaos daemons 8th edition codex review

Excitingly, unlike previous editions, these Loci affect every single Daemon unit in your detachment, including your Greater Daemons! They absorb wounds like drones do in tau for celestine turns to mortal wounds No free act of faith for celestine Shield of faith improved by one for friendly units within 6 of celestine. Daemon players from the last edition know all about this one- In the old rules, you divided your force in half. A combat phase in which plagueswords are 2 damage base, on a wound roll of 5 each plaguesword does 3 damage, on a wound roll of 6 each plaguesword does 5 damage, and if the hit roll is 6, each Plaguebearer makes another attack! You're going to pay for all of this, however, since Karanak costs twice what you would pay for a bare bones generic herald. The foot Herald gained the Daemonette keyword in the 8th Ed Codex allowing her to benefit from the Masque's -1 to hit penalty, finally. Nurgle gives you a better toughness and a nasty 2+ re-roll to wound, sadly to really make this unit shine you need flight and armor. Best used to blast hordes of low-Toughness units, especially if you can get the large blast with a S4+, but otherwise underwhelming.

Overall The Assassins have got some nice new bonuses with the new White Dwarf codex. You can make it shooty or assaulty, give it a utility role. If you are a Chaos fan, give the book a shot. Close combat by almost anybody will also see it destroyed. Anti-Infantry: This unit deals with enemy infantry and does so well. Than a Lord of Change or a Bloodthirster.

T8, 14W, 5++ and 5+ Disgusting Resilience. We Are Legion: This lets you shoot one enemy unit, and in a strange twist. Removing abilities in order to force even more narrow focus in an already incredibly narrowly focused codex does not seem sensible. Nurgle Daemon prince, and a herald of Nurgle is 125 points at level 1. Its artillery purpose gets hindered with 5+ on the move and it wants to be on the move to get some use of its fine melee capabilities too: an iron claw for guys who need some heavy pounding and a sword you should switch to the warp claw for more attacks against guys who need a lot of pounding. Now they can, and it is very cool indeed. With 5 attacks, you can potentially do up to 10 wounds on a unit per turn with the Callidus.

Chaos Corner: Review of the Chaos Daemons Codex

Otherwise, skip this subpar unit rules and models--a double whammy entirely. Summoning is useful as we can summon units for the specific job without overcrowding our deployment phase where the low number of deployment gives an advantage to choose which player goes first. But they have +1 Str, Attack, and Toughness. Ironically, their abilities make this unit a perfect addition to Khorne Daemons' armies, making their Deny the Witch easier and blocking the enemies so your slow army can get them. They can become psykers except for Khorne-aligned princes, which gain +1 attack to compensate for their lack of psychic potential. Perfect for clearing away chaff.

Or a shining Aegis: roll D6 whenever the model takes a wound on a 6+ the wound is ignored; mortal wounds are ignored on a 5+; for 270 pts. In my experience, an all Nurgle army can be almost indestructible, especially with Epidemius giving the whole army continuous buffs. Just need a bit luck with our dice, ha ha ha. They're also toughness 3 and will take a lot of wounds in return. Note to this note: you can't attack anything you didn't declare a charge against, but you can still lock it in combat.
