Without a doubt the best discipline to roll on. You can’t take two magic weapons on a single model and Monstrous creature can’t get two-weapon attack bonus “. Email notifications for threads you want to watch closely. As of 7th Edition, you get no Allies of Convenience. Or you could run a Slaanesh prince with wings and armor with 2 greater rewards and ML3 and Swoop around with biomancy, Exchange your greater rewards for 2 whips and potentially dish out 4d6 s9 lashes.
Tzeetch is random, but has anti infantry and coxex tank powers. In practice, these formations are incredibly expensive despite the buffs they give, and just 2 options in Cidex and Auxiliary can completely comprise a point army.
Because of that, they have a few weaknesses especially against certain armies that are very capable at dealing with glass cannons. Pavane of Slaanesh is just Tzeentch stratagem, but a lot better and doesn’t require our CP.
But it is unclear if you can dual wield on that model, or even what the rules are when it comes to dual weilding. All in all, if you like rolling the dice and having the ability to make even the OP Eldar and Necrons shit their high-and-mighty pants, this is the army for you.
What I like in one way about the new codex is that mono-god armies are more viable, in my opinion, and each one was strengthened with new units and abilities.
I have already mentioned my liking of their shiny new Locus powers as well as their amazing points costs mostly as little as 45 points. The Chicken’s powers are picked for you, since the Tzeentch Discipline hasn’t been expanded to 3 powers yet.
Finally, some results only affect units with certain marks as well as the enemy, as the gods unleash their wrath on the battlefield.
The New Chaos Daemon Codex
You need to hold the line? These last as long as the Herald is still alive and provide buff in many forms, such as Hatred, Feel No Pain and Move Through Cover, among many others. Ostensibly, you only ever want to buy Exalted Rewards for your GDs and DPs – they’re just too expensive and don’t do enough, plus the MC Daemons can afford to purchase more rewards than Heralds, just in case.
However, beware that only one Loci can affect a unit at any one time, and that the bonus is lost as soon as the Herald dies. Also packing eyes so creepy that even nose-less Voldemort looks quite normal in comparison Shiny New Toys! The model is nice, but with its rules I am not so sure about fielding it.
As a recently returned player I was confused. AP2 and ccodex weapons are handed out like candy, and seriously, you’re just as faemonic to have something insanely good happen to you as you are to have something insanely bad happen, although most of the time almost nothing will happen.
Rhinos are also a nice thing to grab since they can block enemy LOS and allow your squishier daemons like Bloodletters or Daemonettes coeex run from cover to cover and set up charges unmolested. The new codex has done away with the previous armoury for the Daemons, which allowed one to tool up certain units with upgrades from a list for a certain points for each.
A new chariot and unique daemonuc the fact that it has no rider and actually has a half decent armour value although it is open-toppedbut what really makes me excited is the shiny gun on the model itself. With the release of Wrath of Magnus, you can use below Tzeentchian Warpstorm table for the duration of the battle instead if your Warlord is a Daemon of Tzeentch. Sucky against Hordes but even there it will add up. If you don’t like what you get and most of them are pretty sweetyou can always exchange it for one of the awesome Greater Magic Weapons.
I’m starting to get the feeling that Phil Kelly had the allies table in mind when he wrote this codex in the first place, because daemons are actually fucking fantastic as a supporting force to a CSM primary army.
Last thing you want is to kill an elite unit shout out in victory and then see your points DP get shot of the next turn. Tell them to show you the page and line next time. The themes behind each of them are cool and certainly worth a look, but I feel they are mostly either too situational or a canny opponent will simply negate it before it has daemonix chance to prove its worth.
Rapetastic meleeeven though they decide sometimes to take pot shots at one another in the midst of battle.

Princes are expensive but versatile. Thanks to the latest release of Wrath of Magnus, Tzeentch daemons get their own Decurion style detachment. If you form a wide oval formation in the center of the table your flying DPs can run around and still hide while your buubble wrap charges and binds stuff here and there.
There are a few things your heretical mudfoots can offer their masters, and all on a budget! Don’t forget your pile in moves to bubble wrap a DP even in combat.
