Hey guys, here’s an interesting one for everyone. I’m a Xenos player, Tau, Eldar, Dark Eldar, Tyranids and Necrons, are my current armies. A friend of mine got the Demons of Chaos battalion and a skulltaker for an hq choice. So far it hasn’t mattered what army I play against him, he hasn’t been able to win a single game against me. At this point I’m want to create a list that will ‘let him win’ without it looking like I’m throwing the game. What I was thinking was going with a foot slogging Dark Eldar list. Below is what I’m thinking of running from what I’d like to know is how tough or easy it would be to take on with a demons of chaos army. I’ve also picked up a Demon Prince that I’ll be giving him to bolster his army. HQ Archon 180pts Huskblade, Blast Pistol, Ghostplate Armor, Combat Drugs, Djin Blade and Shadow Field

Er, as a suggestion: rather than making a list that will "let him win", why not post HIS list (or have him sign up to the forum so he can post it himself!) and identify some possible problems he might be having. That way, he might learn a few things about demons--which aren't THAT weak!--and you don't risk looking like you're throwing a game. I know that if my opponent did that, I'd be even more disillusioned, especially if I lost AGAIN!

From what I’ve been seeing he’s been running his army as listed below. I’m not sure what upgrades he’s got but he’s running just shy of 1100 points, so I think he’s got his list as kitted out as it can be, but I don’t know Demons very well.
Bloodletters x10 w/ Skulltaker attached
Pink Horrors x10
What I’m going to try and suggest to him is a list like I’ve got listed below, just from what I’ve seen when he drops in small squads of demons they get chewed up by fire before they get a chance to do much of anything.

Be sure to break the pink horrors up in squads of 5, from what I've seen they can do alot of damage that way, mostly because if they see horrors they will charge with any free units, then the horrors just get decimated in cc.
