@alphalas so, since you're the one I know plays daemons in here.... basic crash course on how to into daemons? mostly tzeentch but with khorne and slaanesh mixed for flavor
anyone else who also does the advice would be welcomed, the resources I've been digging through aren't terribly helpful from the perspective of someone brand new to the faction

I don’t play daemons man, at least haven’t for years
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 02 2018 01:25
ah, my mistake
never drink and post, somehow I got you confused with @flakpanda
oh well
going to wait for the daemons codex, then probably dive in with a start collecting/brims/LoC
flakpanda

Jan 02 2018 03:45
i only play pure tzeentch @WindstormSCR . not really sure about the other flavors. that will prob change in two weeks with those juicy nurgle models
also @/all does anyone have a copy of AoS path to glory book

flakpanda
@flakpanda

@flakpanda I was looking at mostly tzeentch for 40k and then mixing in some silver tower stuff for AoS
cartag
@cartag
Jan 02 2018 03:50
Khorne all the way
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 02 2018 03:51
I'm looking at some khorne for summoned bloodletter/crushers with that rr charge locus
cartag
@cartag
Jan 02 2018 03:52
I think the Khorne dogs allow you to deny psychic powers
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Jan 02 2018 03:53
with tzeentch you can hold back some point to summon situaltional units too. my advice might not be that great in two weeks, lol. idk how they are going to change the top level rules for demons.
but im for sure getting the book
i hear tzeentch/magnus/morty is pretty good. but i havent played/seen it yet
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 02 2018 03:54
my thoughts on that were to simply take a single khorne DP with wings
in a patrol or however
then use that to summon+charge if the summoning rules remain the same
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Jan 02 2018 03:55
also someone told me a local ran two supreme commands with all DPs and magnus/morty and won first
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 02 2018 03:55
that sounds like what I'm trying to avoid
I'll only have one giant model, either kairos or a LoC depending on how shit they are
goal being to have as much usability between 30k/40k/AoS as possible
will probably use a box of tzaangors with ahriman just because I like the models and have a BoP ahriman
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Jan 02 2018 03:57
yeah. pure tzeentch demons in AoS are pretty lack luster. you have to really out play your oppenent and think outside the box with them
open play they are OP as shit tho
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 02 2018 03:59
because bolts of change errywhere?
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Jan 02 2018 03:59
yep
idgaf if you are playing against nagash. you will win in open play as tzeentch (and have the models to summon)
WindstormSCR

Jan 02 2018 04:00
is changehost as fun as it looks?
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Jan 02 2018 04:02
It is, and the one i usually play. and for the larger games I play The Hosts Duplicitous
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 02 2018 04:02
ah yes
flakpanda

the 'wat' spell
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Jan 02 2018 04:03
Scintillating Simulacra is an amazing spell
sure ill charge block you with some pink horrors. btw you awesome combat unit sucks now.
it is really funny against blightkings. because the 6s dont generate more hits anymore
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 02 2018 04:06
requires 2 LoC right? might be a future thing
because unless the CD 40k codex makes running 2 worth it, there isn't enough AoS played around here for that!
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Jan 02 2018 04:07
yeah, min 2. one for THD and one for the changehost
do you have magnus?
time warped LoC
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 02 2018 04:08
I have zero daemons or other things right now
my eldar are mostly done, and since my RG cause me pain to contemplate I'm hard-shelving them until major changes occur or I get up the nerve to sell them/chaosify them
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Jan 02 2018 04:09
RG?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 02 2018 04:09

@flakpanda
Jan 02 2018 04:09
ah
yeah
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 02 2018 04:09
they're technically "good" this edition, if you run them as a soul-crushingly unfluffy gunline
I'd rather turn them into a traitor element of the original RG legion
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Jan 02 2018 04:10
SM (any chapter) feel very under satisfiying to play. unless you build straight comp list
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 02 2018 04:10
and just use AL rules for 40k
mix with modern chaos and presto
funny thing is everything I have except a tiny amount of primaris translates just fine
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Jan 02 2018 04:12
AL rules
?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 02 2018 04:13
Alpha Legion
has a similar infiltrate deal
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Jan 02 2018 04:13
oh. i didnt make the sentance connection for some reason
derp
yeah i get that
kinda hoping CSM get "primaris" in the near future as the story already has them tinkering with them
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 02 2018 04:15
if I do end up chaosing my RG stuff it'll mostly be in painting, I'll probably get some new mk III and csm bits to mix into the regular squads
WindstormSCR

I've just discovered I can run my combi-plas tartaros in CSM
the pull is strong!

combi-plasma slaanesh termies are pretty good in CSM with the strat

WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 02 2018 08:17
@alphalas I couldn't possibly interest you in 15 {s]vanguard veterans[/s] death company?
I made a list of what couldn't make the jump
4x multi-melta
4x plasma cannon
All of my scouts (20 total)
15 vanguard vets (various equip)
Shrike
Primaris stuff
1sq of Centurion devs (las/msl)
2 Land speeder storm
2 twin las razor plates/guns
And 10 terminators of the indomitus variety (5 assault 5 normal)
giving me pause, but at the same time I am really not enjoying loyalists this edition at all, and have very little confidence in GW to fix them
supposed codex-in-hand leaks
looks like basic troops got more expensive (need pinks for the 4++) but the quality of ex/flamer shooting went waaay up)

hopefully this is the last wave of nurgle stuff
as happy as I am that dudes who have been waiting a while are getting models.... I'm not a fan of the nurgle stuff

@WindstormSCR

I'm done with my RG until GW decides to get their head out of their collective asses
Same here friendo, I have often considered making them into a "survived Corax's Cull on the true Raptors" and having them pop out of the warp in true mutant fashion ...

WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 02 2018 12:29
if the daemons codex leaks hold true, I'm probably going to go for a can of zandri dust and go full pale nomads
still using RG markings of course, though out of spite and contempt, a reminder of what once was. (with some extra chaos stuff in there too)
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Jan 02 2018 12:31
would give me a reason to use some of my all time fave models - Warp Talons
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 02 2018 12:31
then I can just run them as traitor faction in HH, which doesn't bother me at all considering I didn't use any of the special characters
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Jan 02 2018 12:34
I will miss Shrike (my model of him, not the rubbish rules) - Chapter Master is almost as good as a non-primaris lieutenant
booooo

killing annoying co-workers/customers is sadly not an acceptable substitute for nicotine.

No, it's not
But I'm cheating a bit
I'm using the Mark Ten XL vape pen
And so far it's kept the urge to kill down to it's usual levels

Warlord and relics?
Cause that’s the current problem I have
Which @Crowbar90 said he fixed
James
@skonk
Jan 02 2018 19:38
no
hellblasters... i add a unit and it has the plasma incinerator selected as ud expect
i duplicate the unit twice (or just add 2 more units)
change 1 of the unit to a different weapon type
the other 2 units get set to no weapon
intercessors are being added with the serg having bolt rifle selected (as a radio button) but the 4 other models having no weapon selected and the weapon options are checkboxes (which makes no sense), setting the 4 to have a weapon makes the serg show an error saying min of 0
have to deslect and reselect the weapon for the error to go
James
@skonk

not really messed with much else yet tho so id not noticed the warlord and relics thing

@skonk @Crowbar90 sounds like some constraints are being shared when they shouldn't be
thats a quick vid of it
for if my explanation was shit :)
