Hey /tg/, quick question. Which is more useful in a 40k Daemons army, 10 Seekers or 20 Horrors?

>> No.11698195

using all 30 as lesser demons in a real chaos army.

>> No.11698210

If you have to ask, the horrors.

You need to know what seekers are for before you put them in your army.

>> No.11698236


The thing is, I just have a tiny Daemons force right now - 10 Bloodletters, 10 Daemonettes, 10 Plaguebearers, and a Nurgle DP.

I suppose I could use some of the Seekers as Heralds of Slaanesh...

>> No.11698297

10 seekers vs 20 horrors
10 seekers = 170 pts
20 horrors = 340 pts

It's safe to say horors will be more useful, just for sheer numbers.

>> No.11698327

It's not as great as it might seem. You back will hurt quite a lot and it cant be used for any detailed work becuse its in bad angle (too close to your chest), plus it's not flat surface (no pun inteded).

>> No.11698416

OP should buy the Masque.

>> No.11698449

20 of seekers is 340pts too then...

Also seekers have 4 attacks plus higher WS and initiative.

just finished putting together 21 daemonettes, 1 herald, 10 seekers, 1 masque. I need to dredge up some of my old metal daemonettes before I find out what else I need to get but so far it looks like I'll be done before long my big problem is waht I want to use as my keeper of secrets, convert on out of an inquisitor scale death cult assassin or sell one of my other armies and buy a forgeworld one....

gonna do this for my fiends instead of using the retarded horse thing they decided to call a fiend.

>> No.11699600

do you happen to know what parts are used?

>> No.11699649

5 Horrors with one using bolt of tzeentch = shoots at tanks for you without wasting a load of points of basic shots.

14 horrors with a changeling = anti troop, try not to deep strike too close to get all models in range beyond this size or you may scatter and lose the extras anyway. (You need to remain at range and not be TOO CLOSE!)

That is the way to use horrors.

Seekers are more... First wave start at 24", then close that 24" with fleet+pavane of slaanesh to ensure you don't get rapid fired upon before melee contact. You wanty to avoid 12" range with daemons and seekers/fiends/flesh hounds etc are the way to do that with pavane of slaanesh.

Explained for you.

>> No.11699659


Off the top of my head, it looks like Sevora & Sevorina as the base woman figure, thats from the Inquisitor line.

The wings are probably from an old metal dragon or something. Bloodthirster or Balrog wings might look nice.

The dreads are made from a tightly coiled wire of some sort, bent into shape.

The green stuff is Green Stuff.

main body is the inquisitor scale death cult assassin, the sword is from the same kit, the wings are from the dark pegasus, the "hair" is guitar wire, I think if I do this I'll leave off the knives though (which also come with the main kit) , you will also need two small bits of metal for the nipples and a bit of green stuff for gaps and smothing out to make it fleshy

correct foul trickster

>> No.11699816

Yes it is.

Remember you can have small units in one half of the armies units and very large units in the other half. Making it possible to send more then 80% of your points in the first wave if everything goes right.

Tzeentch can be a leafblower by simply getting the first shots off with most their army and maintianing that momentum with some monstrous melee of the 3+ invulnerable save kind.

>> No.11699880


Im thinking Trygon tail, boobysnake torso (the steed of slaanesh - its a snake with boobies), lots of scything talons as legs on the bottom, and a Keeper of secrets head? Giant scything talons greenstuffed onto some Keeper of Secrets arms for the blade-arms.

Or about half a kilo of greenstuff and about 6 months of man hours.

>> No.11699913


Thanks. I ask because I'm planning on having a number of floating heads of slain foes on the base equal to Tzeentch's number. The Lord is going to be a little bastard riding across the field on a Disc of Tzeentch made out of a pair of Terminator bases. I'm not sure whether I want the heads to be held up with the transparent pegs used for flying models, or wired into the disc/Lord, though.

I know of the titty beast, I own 3 of them. the trygon tail could be a useful Idea and scything talons are somthing I haven't yet considered. but I don't think I would use the Keeper head...proabbly make the body thin out at the top and use a few daemonette torsos and end with one of the Seeker's heads.

the Keeper's horns are actually the only thing I like about the current keeper of secrets....if I had to go with the bull head I would never had gone with slaanesh as my chaos god.

here is a pic, how would you improve on this design?

If you want it at that rough scale, the Trygon body would be too big. But the Ravenor body would work nicely. Its somewhere between infantry and boobysnake sized.

Maybe even a Necron Wraith 'tail' with a bit of greenstuff to make it a bit more fleshy.
