Chaos Daemons thoughts
Why do I like nurglings, besides the fact that their new model is fairly cool they tend to be some of the best tar pits around purely for the fact they have eternal warrior and 3 wounds. Now their other stats are mediocre but with an invulnerable save and 3 EW wounds and changes to fearless wounds not existing you need to put 27 wounds on a full unit of these guys after they have their 5+ invulnerable save....with fateweaver around these guys will just tie things up forever. So lets say we take 27 nurgling bases to tie things up all day. From here we add in a unit of horrors to score and throw bolts around the table. I do believe swarms cannot score if I am not mistaken so the horrors could be replaced by plaguebearers hiding in the corner on an objective Yet the basic idea is to spam so many nurglings to tie my opponent up long enough to the point where he cannot be effective with certain units I will try and charge.
From here we basically need Fateweaver as well as a couple other flying daemon princes with iron hide and breath of chaos, a potent combo I expect to see a lot these days.
With Lamprey bites being the figurative "bee's knee's" we need two units of 6 these guys as well as a unit of 6 improved flamers with a pyrocaster. So here is my list idea
1846 points total
3x9 nurgling bases
x9 horrors w/ the changeling
2x winged daemon princes w/ iron hide & breath of chaos
x6 flamers w/ pyrocaster
So basically fateweaver comes in w/ the nurgling bases and the nurglings assault turn two, preferably, and tie up a few units all game while the swooping daemon princes as well as the screamers and flamers all use their fast movement to jump and fly around the board killing off units one by one while the nurglings tie them up. I believe a list like this would work except it may lack enough dedicated scoring units outside of the scouring, purge the alien, and big guns never tire....also against flyers yet what non flyer list doesn't have issues with flyer based lists these days...more on this later.....daemon players, yes you Melon_head, please chime in and please hit subscribe as I plan on doing a give away once I reach 100 subscribers. Thanks for reading :)
