    Awesome! Im always disappointed with the Wyvern. Most things Im shooting are in cover but not needing LoS is nice. Vulture will be awesome to see!

    Can’t wait to see the game!

    A nice mix of units from the guard.

      Yeah, the Guard army is my normal list and it is very good.

    First slaanesh batrep on the internet!!!
    Glad you guys decided to pop that cherry (hah, topical)
    AND summoning! Count this as must watch.
    No fiends though? Aren’t they considered one of the best units? I assume you guys don’t have the models(or you do and he summoned them in the vid)

      Whelp. Slaanesh got stomped as per usual(but if they went first- no, they would’ve been stomped either way…).
      Hope they get some fat price drops. Like compare a S4(5) AP3 A1(2) Bloodletter to a S3 AP1 A2 Daemonette. It’s a joke :p They need to be 6 pts or something.
      Pretty much every game goes like this if you just play Slaanesh on the table. The only way to use deamons and win, even in a casual game, is sadly:
      Brimstones
      Changeling
      Malefic Lord
      Tons of summoning. Opponents don’t have anything to shoot for 1-2 turns. And on turns 1-2-3 you let it rip with summons.

        I don’t think that’s the *only* way to win as daemons, but I do agree that daemonettes could use a price drop. Last edition bloodletters were more expensive than the rest of the lesser daemons… and there was a reason for that.

        High strength and good AP is really, really strong. Daemonettes get more attacks but their attacks blow unless they roll a 6. They definitely could use another point drop.

        Divide seekers squads into units of 5. Fot more of them in. Only 1 prince is needed, replace with heralds on steeds. Since you already using nurglings replace the 30 unit daemonettes with nurglings. Try to get a supreme command detachemnt for heralds. Summon in fiends to block units from running away with heralds, and summon in daemonettes. I run 4-8 heralds and 20 seekers (4×5) in my emperors children list and they are perfect for hitting fast. Daemonettes starting on the field is not a good strategy becuase they wont get a charge off until at least turn 2. Also, icons are only 1/6 chamce to bring back D3 so best investment are instruments for the +1″.

        • Dbiesto August 17, 2017 12:53 pm #

          Also when you summon the daemonettes, you should only need about 25 so five will soak up overwatch wins and hopefully get the charge off so you save about 35 points

    Hey Reece, Forgeworld FAQ’d the conqueror up in price, it is 22 points more now FYI.

      Ah yeah, forgot about that, thanks for the reminder. And, it should have gone up in cost, too, haha.

    Reece wink twice on the next stream if guard vets get their doctrines back and some purpose in their codex.
    Wink three times if they get their Sv4+ back. 😀
