Starting a new Daemons army. Slaanesh and Nurgle.

Postby DaOrkyBitz » Fri Jun 29, 2012 11:07 pm

Hey guys, I've been around the forum for a while but there has always been something I've avoided. Slaanesh and Nurgle. I rarely dip into their fluff or actually start learning their rules

BUT. I am getting a tad bored with my Khorne and Tzeentch army. SO

i was thinking i was going to start a second army of Daemons :] but instead of them being a TOTALLY new army i just have to master the second part of my army. The Slaanesh and nurgle part. So basically i just need a run down on units and stuff :] so guys, help me out. What do i need to know about Slaanesh and Nurgle? Oh and a bit of fluff would be cool too ;]

This is in my opinion what's useful
For the hq's you'll wanna steer clear of nurgles greater daemons. Keeper of secrets is the way to go. The masque can be usefull but will die pretty fast
For your troops in smaller games you'll want a squad of plague bearers(5-10) with an icon and maybe 15 daemonettes. In larger games I would say use 2 units of 15 daemonettes and 2 units of 5-10 plaguebearers.
For elites fiends are your best choices. They can get like, 35 attacks on the charge. Make sure to give one unholy might(useful in my opinion) steer clear of beasts of nurgle.
For fast attack your only choice here is seekers. They can be useful in large numbers.
For heavy support youll of course want a soul grinder. If you decide to run a daemon prince give him a mark of nurgle

Don't forget you can play Nurgle Blight Drones and Plague Hulks.

I can (you can also check the website on info on them). There are two things, a chariot, then the super hyper crazy chariot of spikeyness (i forget the actual notion) they are lightly Rhino armored vehicles that seem made for running over hordes and transporting a hero unit at a glance.

Is there any other way to get a hold of the information without having to order a white dwarf?
