lvl2 wizard, unatural swftness, immortal fury and wings

HERO
herald of khorne

Don't you need 3 core choices for 2,000 points? Unless if it is different in the Daemons codex then that's an OK list ye got there. :)

Alright then, a good solid list. I've seen these bloodletters on a rampage and it isn't pretty indeed! The only problem is the amount of units.

Just remember although Bloodletters are absolute powerhouses outmanuverability could own you here.

im hoping with things like spells form the lore of shadows (i think its that lore)that gives a unit an extra movement phaze in the magic phaze neat eh! so the blood letters COULD move 20" in a turn! lol

the reason i picked a DP over a Blood thirster, he can be killy (admittedly not as killy as the thirster) but with magic and stuff he can still be pretty awesome and considering hes a bit cheaper!


but yeah i know whatcha mean!

That looks incredibly monstrous, not only do you have great CC, but you also have a magical defense (well sort of), and with that extra movement, your bloodletters, will defiently be earning there name and points rather quickly (providing you get that spell).

other then that, i would suggest adding in Furies, for March Blocking (purposes only)

The onyl problem weith this is that because it is uch a high casting value and you onyl have one sorceror it will be difficult to actually cast tis as it will require at least 3 dice and with only 4 casting dce it will be lucky for you to be able to cast any spells so i would instead just go on defencsive instead and go for a bloodthirter insteaf

Hey Guzz...

Seems like a solid list, but I do have some advice, so here's my 2 cents...

I like the first list better, but both can still work, but I'll just comment on the 1st list:

Remember- the Bloodletters have movement 5, so they are quite manueverable. What I usually do is deploy them in 6 files and 2 ranks- because you can't panic you will get them into combat and if you play more units they can do more damage- you only need 6-7 to get into combat to do serious damage- so go more MSU.

You can always drop the Daemon Prince and get a few pinkies if you want magical defence and see if you can squash in a few hounds... And also, if you put a Herald in aech of your bloodletter units, your whole army has magic resistance.

So what you eventually end up with is a very resilient, fast and furious army, with some real HARD hitters on the flanks with the bloodcrushers and hounds. If its possible, see if you can make one of your heralds a Battle standard bearer...

So this is just the short of it, but I think it's a real scary army to face with any army!

ok killer thanks for the advise it has given me an idea 6 wide and 1 less rank and create another unit with left over points i have applied it to both lists

i should also mention my main opponents are probably gonna be high elves and dark elves and maybe bretonian knights

lvl2 wizard, unatural swftness, immortal fury and wings

HERO
herald of khorne
armour of khorne

herald of khorne
battle standard, armour of khorne

herald of khorne
juggernaught and soul hungerer

CORE 5 wide but each of the previous blood letter units have 5 less allowing me to produce another bloodletter unit!

yo Guss-guss. there was some bird food in my chicken pakora last nite. not good.

but for more pressing matters in your 2nd list try n drop a bloodletter in each of the units that you are putting a herald in. will still mean ur unit will be 18 strong in total. also remember skull taker moves 4 nt 5 like normal bloodletters so he will slow down that unit. mite even be best to drop him n go for anuver herald. if your going to fight dark elves u will defo need ur flesh hound to protect you from march blocking dark riders or charging the reaper bolt throwers. the army list is good tho i dnt know if your magic protection wuld be enuf against a strong magic offensive.

Awesome! Yeah, if you play them right the Daemons is a tough opponent to beat!

I agree with Son of Sanguinus- take out a bloodletter in each unit with a herald.

Also I would suggest dropping krananrak- IMO he's not worth his point cost...

So with the extra pts you can always make one of the heralds a battle st bearer and give them the flaming sword- Then they can take all comers!
