Codex: Demons Rumor Round Up

A member of Warseer who claims to have play tested the new demon codex has posted a lot about the list on this thread. Unfortunately, he's not a native English speaker, so some of what he's saying is hard to read. Still, he's offered a lot of information, which I have combined with the previous rumors and summarized.

Here is a list of the units in the codex and their rumored characteristics:
HQ
Greater Daemons
Blood Thirster - Can Fly and also rumored to have a shooting attack, which seems odd. May be as strong as S8! Maybe because of furious charge?
Great Unclean one - T6, but I2 and slow and purposeful.
Keeper of Secrets - Fleet, Hit and run, and some sort of Lash of submission- like ability.
Lord of Change - Rumored to be the most powerful. Carries some kind of force weapon. Can target three units with three shooting attacks.

Herald - Can have up to two for one HQ slot. Each Chaos God has it's own Herald with tons of options. These were featured in January WD.

Elite
Flamers - I've heard nothing on these.
Flesh hounds - Have option to have special character.
Fiends of Slaanesh - I've heard nothing on these, either.
Beast of nurgle - Similar to Chaos Spawn with poisoned attacks and feel no pain.

Troops

Daemonettes - Have Fleet and Rending. The plastic kits have caused much debate.
Bloodletters - Have Power Weapons and Furious Charge. Loincloth no longer confers 3+ armor save. The other plastic kit seen around the net.
Plaguebeares - Feel No Pain, Poisoned Weapons, Slow and Purposeful.
Nurglings - Got me!
Pink Horrors - S3 AP3 Shooting attack with option for Bolt of Change. Also has option for special character called "The Changeling"
Furies - i don't know, but I'd bet they fly.

Fast Attack
Bloodcrushers - Bloodletters on Juggernauts of Khorne. May only move 6" - I'm not sure why.
Seekers of Slaanesh - f.k.a. Mounted Demonettes
Screamers - Treated as Jet bikes. May also have some kind of killer optional upgrade.

Heavy Support - There seems to be a lot of confusion and contradiction in this area. More on that later...
Soulgrinder - Modified Defiler. Possibly source of "unbound Defiler" rumor.
Daemon Prince - A very customizable choice. Treated with disdain by true demons due to formally human nature.

Special Characters
3 Greater Daemons:One for Nurgle, one For Tzeentch and one Undivided)
4 Special Heralds:One for each God. Slaanesh Herald called, "The Masque".


General rules: All Daemons have invulnerable save, can be placed in deep strike and have immunities versus Instant death. All codex entries - even demon engines- are daemons.

I have to go, but I wanted to post this before anyone else (I hope I can beat the Bell of Lost souls). I haven't thoroughly spell-checked this, so forgive me if I've misspelled any names of any Chaos deities.

Also, if you want to see the thread that started this, it's here.

There seemed to be a lot of moaning on Warseer over the rumors. I don't get it - this seems to be a great line up. Maybe its just that I have an armies worth of demons from WFB - so I'll have very little building required to play this codex.

I like that Slaanesh is picking up fleet - that type of speed is much deadlier than a boosted Int. Hate to see the bloodletters lose the 3+ armor save - but that was over kill in the first place.

People are always going to moan. That's why I posted it here. I'm presenting a moan-free alternative.

Dane of War said...

It sounds pretty good - I know that I will definitely pick up at least a small army and run with it, so I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing the finished goodies.

And damn ya, scott, you beat me to posting this 'un. ;)

Brian said...

If you ever want to run a combined CSM/Daemons army under some system of house rules I'll have no problem with it.

I will buy this codex and maybe one or two units to paint but I'm not going to do a whole army.

I have two units of plague bearers that I had planned on using for WFB back when I had planned on doing a chaos army. Perhaps they will see the light of the table-top after all.

IIRC, Juggernauts only moving 6" is standard for Cavalry- they can charge 12".

I need a phone that will check for emails automatically. I like the Iphone but I do know it wont work with the Cricket service. Is there a phone out there that will do this with emails? I do own a IPAQ that claims it does something like that.

I currently have Verizon but the coverage in my area (Fullerton, CA) is not so great. Does AT&T and the iphone have better coverage in my area?
