Daemonette army versus GK.

I'm going to have to pack something besides melee to kill tanks, and more preferably the land raider/transport kind. SO I figure I can take out the idea of taking any kind of fiends and/or seekers. (sad about it)

I really don't want those glaring weaknesses though, especially when I cannot control the attacks and a single daemonette could get 4 daemonettes killed by attacking silver.

So now's the dilemma...

Up to 2 squads of troops can have small units of pink horrors for a single bolt of tzeentch. I don't like taking soul grinders, princes or greater daemons but I guess I might have to now (numbers over toughness, leaves their big one shot guns nothing to hit but a daemonette-ish model)

And then flamers/screamers of tzeentch... Both are very short range and one relies on melee. Bot are high priority targets but one is more cost efficient but may need 6's to hit. I might go for screamers in a full 32 because of their similar cost to daemonettes...

Should I? I mean, they pick to use the meltabombs they get one attack and a 4+ inv save against it...

If I take flamers of tzeentch, I rather pack some Blood Crushers instead at +5 points because of their wounds and toughness value... a wound per 20 points instead of 1 per 35.

Give me incentive to go one way or the other pls.

Ever considered the changeling? It seemed to do quite well in the WD battle report

>> No.15838666

I like the changeling, but I like games without using unique characters too if I can help it. And he does not help the fact my daemonettes greatest nemesis is that damn silver upgrade for GK tanks.

Why not just hit yourself in the nuts for an hour? It'd be the same basic experience.

>> No.15838670

This is retarded. You're tailoring your list and you will still lose! haha

He plays Slaanesh, what makes you think he wouldn't enjoy such an experience?

>> No.15838680

Anti-tank? Isn't that what Soul Grinders are for?

>> No.15838684

>>15838678

Then he should play WHILE hitting himself in the nuts. Who knows, it might throw his opponent off his gam- phhhhbbbbt, couldn't keep a straight face. How can you throw an opponent off a game when it's just "roll dice to win game"?

>> No.15838694

>>15838670
Planning an army based around what I will end up facing is indeed tailoring. But if I take the same thing against everyone else then it's not so much tailoring is it?

I am just trying to decide what my anti tank portion of my army will have to be. Because of the damn silver that cuts down 3/4ths of my codex by merely existing. (And JoTWW/GK Warpfire that instakills multi-wound creatures)

I rather make a better investment then randomly picking things out and regretting it.

GK are beatable. And no, I think a nutcracker would make a terrible gift idea.

>> No.15838700

>>15838694

I play both Grey Knights and Daemons. I don't know what you're smoking, but GK are NOT beatable by Daemons unless the GK player's mother drank copiously during incubation.

>> No.15838701

>>15838680
Ten anti tank guns with nothing to do but pump into one soul grinder that is inferior to their dreadnoughts (initiative) is a bad idea, many Daemon players will tell you the same.

Collars of Khorne maybe? (This, obviously, is not advice for OP)

Also that model has a fuckhueg Deep Strike footprint. I've almost always lost it in terrain.

>> No.15838740

>>15838729
Yeah that too, especially when I rely on numbers and half my huge units come in on turn 2, scatter with the run rule and make room for the other units coming in later.
