Thanks.
It is going to get a reboot that I will post up shortly, but so far I am happy with how it is turning out.

While I am still working out the details for the final 1850 list, I do know that it will include this guy, so he is my April commitment!

Okay, I am going to have to make a change to my April commitment. Instead of One Great Unclean One, I am going to paint:
(1) One Keeper of Secrets
(2) One Daemon Prince
Image

The new Chaos Daemon book has really changed my way of thinking about Daemons. In addition, the new Tau book has brought a lot of firepower and overwatch to the table. As a result, I find myself going with a Keeper of Secrets and Heralds of Slaanesh and Daemon Princes of Slaanesh and Nurgle. Not only do the Daemon Princes give me a good opportunity to take out flyers with the new Lash Shooting Weapon, but 5 to 6 rolls on the Slaanesh table usually means I get a couple of Aura Psychic powers which let me charge into Tau without letting them overwatch the incoming unit. So far, Daemon Princes of Nurgle with the Instant Daemon Daemonic Reward Weapon have been fantastic at taking out Riptides and Broadsides that are unable to shoot overwatch. Flesh Hounds charging Tau that do not get to overwatch them, tie them up until the other Daemon Princes, Bloodletters or Daemonettes can come in and wipe them off the table. The same units seem to work against other armies as they quickly get overwhelmed.

As a result, I am playing a very different list than I started with. To not completely invalidate my painting up to this point, I have come up with an 1850 point list that will incorporate the models I am using and painting for my new list as well as use the models I have already painted. As a result, I am very close to being done with an 1850 point army. The list is probably not that competitive, but it does include all the models I have painted so far except for one Nurgle Herald.

Bolter marines never go out of fashion. They are the little black dress of troops choices.

I am still going to keep adding to the Daemons. I have a Soul Grinder and some more Pink Horrors on the table for this month as well as models from another game system.
