Best school of magic for daemons

Post by vinsanity642 » Mon May 25, 2015 10:44 pm

I am a tzeentch believer all the way but I respect how tough nurgle is to crack. I plan on trying to run both, so what magic schools would work best for each respective god?

I suppose the obvious answer is their own Lores, because if you've got your own personal set of spells to use, might as well use them right? The Lore of Nurgle is particularly good, with plently of juicy buffs and debuffs to use. They even summon more guys to your units when you cast them! Perfect.

If you don't like their lores then Metal is usually the best substitute from the option Tzeentch mages can use; it has a nice set of buffs to keep your squishy lil' guys alive and can help crack open the heavily armoured opponents Tzeentch can struggle to deal with.

Also, beware of running Tzeentch and Nurgle together! They are bitter enemies due to Tzeentch messing with Nurgle's meticulously created plagues, and so any time something beneficial blows for Nurgle on the Winds of Chaos table, Tzeentch will suffer for it and vice versa. Not to say you shouldn't run a Tzeentch/Nurgle army, but be wary of this eventuality.
I can't think of a witty signature.

Lore of Slaanesh cacobomb everything. After that nurgle, nurgle is generally the only way to go with daemons anyway, maybe a skull cannon or 2.

Hogwarts is the best school of magic.

/facepalm

I read Gryffindor. Darn you, old age! In my defense, I did just get back from some outpatient medical and was still loopy.
