Jonah Posted November 8, 2012 Share Posted November 8, 2012 It's been a little over a month since the launch of the Codex and I'd love to hear more from people about their experiences and which units have worked for them in actual battles (not math hammer!). The Daemon Prince with Black Mace, PA & Wings has been outstanding for me. He totally wrecks anything he gets close to and has decent survivabilty (so long as he doesn't exit combat during your opponent's turn in the middle of his army). Nurgle gives him a 3+ cover save while he's Swooping. I prefer the latter because I haven't had a problem getting him into combat, it's surviving the turn afterwards that's a problem. Lord with Axe is also a total beast. I've only tried him in Termie Armour in a Landraider (don't have a Bike or Juggernaut model yet) but he's decimated full squads on his own. I bundle him with Berzerkers but they will sometimes exit the Landraider and assault separate targets. Warpsmith bundled with 20+ cultists is a formidable backfield holder. Give him a couple of Hades Fiends & a Deflier to look after and he's in his element. 2+ with 20 ablative wounds is pretty hard to chip away at. Sorcerer with Slaanesh steed is great fun as he can outflank a unit. He can bring some bikers with him or even a big blob squad of cultists/marines/zombies so long as you don't mark them with a different god. Pimped out Marines have got the job done reliably over several games; CCW, VotLW & a couple of Plasma guns, bundled into a Dirge Rhino, can wreck many units just with shooting and then hold their own in combat. The CCW is a really big boost and I wouldn't consider taking marines without it. Forgefiends with Hades Cannons have been highly destructive, nearly destroying Landraiders & Monoliths with their Daemon Forge ability. I have found them to be extremely fragile but I think that's mostly bad luck. The Heldrake always pays for his points, he's a real 'get out of jail free' card and can be very handy for drawing enemy fire. He's surprizingly survivable with his 5++ and hull point regeneration. So what units have worked for you guys? *Edited because I was cheating on a couple of occasions :s* Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
