nope. none of the daemons have to take psychic tests. No sense in Perils of the Warp when we ARE the warp! You just pick an enemy unit that is about to shoot, as long as they are within range, they must test.

Yes, How would a Daemon suffer from the Warp? They live in it! 'Perils of the Materium'? Makes no sense either. But, meh, I'm not arguing.

And the Changeling is a brilliant model, plus the ability is fantastic, at a worthwhile price. It's very useful making an IG army shoot its own Heavy Weapon Teams :P

Keeper of Secrets is great HQ - go get it .... but, i have a small suggestion - drop the Nurglings - they are pretty much useless , unless you have a only-nurgle list with the Tallyman of Nurgle.

Get a Keeper of Secrets heck get 2. For troops always take plaguebearers and at least 1 unit of horrors. No soul grinders makes me sad :(

And I can't come out
Do you know if Merlin did exist
Or Frodo wore the ring
Did Corum kill the gods
Or where's the wonderland
Which young Alice had seen
Or was it just a dream
I knew the answers
Now they're lost for me

nurglings are actually great tarpits; they have 3 wounds each and while they're T3, they have eternal warrrior and a 5+ invul, so having a squad of 5-7 can tie up a unit for several turns!

the keeper of secrets is great, certainly the best Greater Daemon in the codex. Bloodthirsters are also pretty good, though. as far as heralds, Skulltaker and Epidemius are the only decent named heralds, and the latter only if you're taking a lot of nurgle units for the tally. Don't sell short the generic heralds though! They're cheap and actually rather good for the points.

Soulgrinders are quite good. possessed with front/side AV13 and decent weaponry definitely make them one of the best walkers in the game, and they give our daemons some much-needed long range firepower.

I have an interesting question - lets say i use my Soul Grinder's Phlegm(big blast template) to shoot at some unit, this shot gets scattered , so that template lands between that unit and some another one, hitting some models from both of them. The rules say that any walker can fire all of his weapons, and assault only a single targeted unit ... but what will happen if the situation written above took place?

In advance, thanks for the answers :-)

you assault the unit you targeted. so you would only be able to assault the unit you had initially intended to hit b4 scatter

I'd say you'd assault the unit you targeted in the first place. You shot at the unit, even if you didn't really hit it properly.

OK , but what if i will put the template between 2 units in the first place, in order to hit them both, what then? (or i can not do that?)

One more, thanks 8)

I think you have to centre the template on one specific model, so again the unit you aimed for first.
