Default Codex: Demons (WIP) *UPDATED*

A rough draft of the demons codex (with no armoury)
[size=20pt]Codex: Demons[/size]

[size=15pt]Introduction[/size]
No one knows how the demons came to be or where they came from and it was only when a group of Ultramarine Space Marines were mercilessly attacked by them that anyone knew they existed. Since then numerous attacks on all races have been recorded.

This first edition codex has rules for all the treacherous demons.


[size=15pt]Weapons[/size]
weapon* * ** Range* * * * Str* * * * AP* * * * * * * Type* * * * * * * **
Poison Spit* ** 18''* * * ** 4* * * * 4* * * * * * Assault 1
Fire Breath* ** 24''* * * ** 8* * * * 1* * * * * * Assault 1


[size=15pt]HQ[/size]
* * * * * * * ** Points* * * ** WS* * * * * BS* * * ** S* * * * ** T* * * ** W* * * ** I* * * * * A* * * ** Ld* * * * * Sv
Laqui* * * * * ** 80* * * * * ** 5* * * * * * * -* * * * ** 4* * * * * 3* * * * * 3* * * * * 6* * * ** 3* * * * * 9* * * * ** 5+

Laqui counts as a jump (jump pack).



[size=15pt]TROOPS[/size]
* * * * * * * * *** * * * ** Points* * * ** WS* * * * * BS* * * ** S* * * * ** T* * * ** W* * * ** I* * * * * A* * * ** Ld* * * * * Sv
Demon Warrior* * *** 12* * * * * ****3* * * * ** 3* * * * ** 4* * * * *** 4* * * * * 1* * * ** 4* * * * *1* * * * * 7* * * * ** 5+
Demon Lord* * * * * * +18* * * * * ** 4* * * * * * 3* * * * * 4* * * * * ** 4* * * * * 1* * * ** 5* * *** 2* * * *** 9* * * *** 5+

A squad of demon warriors consists of between 3 and 10 warriors and counts as jump infantry.

Wargear: Each Demon warrior has one close combat weapon and the poison spit weapon choice. One warrior per squad may be upgraded to a Demon Lord for an additional 18 points.

We started writing rules for a daemonic legion in this thread:

http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=41120.0


The concept is similar to the fantasy daemonic legion. Basically its huge horde of daemons rushing forward to swamp all resistance. We based it off of the current existing daemons in the 40k universe. The ones that already have rules.

Only 70 pts? Id say atleast 90 pts. Id say give him a little less then the old Avatar. But before you make troops, id say, make fluff for them. Are they numerous? Then low points costs and lower T.

But this is a good idea, I've alway wanted to field a horde of daemons

I don't know what the cost of the old Avatar was, but I think he's talking about points. But if the picture is to be an example, I think 4 wounds may be a bit too much. Probably 3 because he's an exceptional character. Same with Strength, but 4 Strength, same as a Marine.

Here's something to compare the values to:

Love the teddy bear though. It'd inspire fear in me ;D

And, on a side note, are these going to be the creatures that cause "Perils of the Warp"? If so, one or two may be able to more "actively" effect the Perils or their consequences.

I don't perceive a purpose in a codex of daemons. Good idea, but little purpose. Seems a little un-balanced. Wouldn't you need an entire other army just to sacrifice?
