Default [WFB] Chaos Daemons Army Book [Rumours] -

Heres a run down on what I know about the new Fantasy Daemons;

Very hard to make god specific armies with only 1 choice for each god in each army selection spot.

The 5+ ward is now a true ward and works against magic attacks.

They no longer 'pop' they die like undead do.

Khorne;

Bloodletters;

WS5, S5, T3. Movement 5 I think. No longer Frenzied!. Get Killing Blow [+ Hatred if joined by a Herald]. Magic Res 1.

Bloodcrushers [Letters on Juggernoughts];

S6. +3 to their Save. 2 Attacks. Jugg gets 2 S5 attacks. All killing blow. 1 Wound models as Jugs are now regular Cav mounts.

Flesh Hounds;

2 Wounds. Magic Res 3. S4, 2 Attacks I think.

Herald;

Grants hatred to a unit. WS6/7 I think. Can have Armour of Khorne which gives him +3 armour save so on a Jugg he has a 0+ save. Can have a Flaming Sword which gives him +1 Attacks and makes it flaming IIRC.

Bloodthirster;

Customizable with gifts;

Can get S10,
Can get 2D6 + 2 Attacks,
Can have Armour that turns magic weapons into normal.
[Plenty more]

Slaanesh;

Daemonettes;

M6, A2, S3, T3. Armour Piercing

Fiends;

Just like the Seekers in the Storm of Chaos book.

Herald;

Grants always strike first to unit i think. Can take 'many arms' and gets +2 attacks. Only S4. Armour Piercing.

Keeper of Secrets;

M10. Lvl2 2 Wizard, can be Lvl4. Lots of LD based powers, can make models in base contact attack own unit.

Nurgle;

Plaguebearers;

WS 3, S4, T4. Poison. Get Regen from the Hereld.

Nurglings;

Scouts, Poison.

Hereld;
Grants unit Regen.

Beasts;

d6 +2 Poison attacks. No effect for attacking them in side or rear due to 'slime trail'.

Tzeentch;

Screamers;

only 1 wound. May have a better slash attack.

Horrors;

Flaming attacks. Wizard level based on unit size, over 20 gets you lvl2 i think.

Hereld;

Good spell caster, can be Lvl2. Power Vortex grants an extra power dice. Grants horror unit a 4+ ward rather than 5+.

Characters;

Blue Scribes;

2 Horrors on a disc. around 80 points. Each turn they randomly get 1 enemy spell and can cast it for free at its casting value.

Skulltaker;

Khorne Herald. Killing blow on a 5+, works on anything.

Changling;

Unit Champ [horrors] Special Character - built in Van Hortsmans speculum.

Karank Hound of Vengance;

Extra Attack, unit champ again.

Theres a Bloodthirster Special Character that apparently took a swing at Khorne because he is so rage fuelled and chinked his armour, grants hatred to everyone in both armies apparently.

Meant to be a 2 Headed Lord of Change that knows the lore of Tzeentch plus each head knows 4 spells from any lore.

I bought a spearhead already I can sit and read my new Warhammer Armies: Deamons of Chaos...it is gorgeous...Screamers can slash more than one unit in a turn now...The Khornate Character Skulltaker(?) is awesome for his points! Killing blow anything on a 5+.

And the models are gorgeous...the bloodletters come with an amazing icon.... it is dripping blood. Flamers would be better where they not a rare choice, I have to choose between them, bloodcrushers, fiends, beasts...

Fleshhounds are MR3! You can take magic draining 3+ armour on khornate heros...build your own greater deamon is cool to...

To be honest I think I prefer the old edition of Daemonettes and Bloodletters to the knew. But that's just me .

Its not out yet and not everybody has access to a GW store to see the instore copy, although as far as im aware not that many stores have those either.

I was tempted to get that spearhead just to get the book early lol.

man, this sucks. It is true that you cant mix beasts and daemons right? which only means same road for the mortals. That blows sine I JUST spent my 35 dollar 2nd place winnings in a tourney on a box of warriors. Man I was hopin to use bolster my Beast only army with chosen. I could of just imagined how well they work if I can place 2nd with just beasts.

Not at the moment. BUT, they are re-doing hordes in WD in a few months that will allow you to mix hordes and daemons. [A makeshift till they do hordes properly]. Then when they re-do beasts youwillbe allowed to mix those in again. You just wont be able to mix from books from different editions essentially.
