Providing A++ psychic defence and the looming threat of trapping a unit in combat with Knights makes it a great compliment to this build. You can summon units of SLAANESH DAEMONS to the battlefield if you collect enough depravity points. Close. As a result, despite being fans of the undisputed Best God (don’t @ me I know internet lawyers), Slaanesh fans have had to sit grinding our pretty pearly teeth while our uglier Chaos friendos got toy after toy after toy during the Chaos range overhaul that has occurred over the last three and and a half years. Daemons of Slaanesh Keeper of Secrets - Chaos Daemons - Warhammer 40K. Just incredibly shameful. Alluring. While the Shining Aegis and the Soulstealer help keep the Keeper in business longer, they can’t make up for the fact that the opponent can bring all of their firepower to bear on one from the game’s first turn and destroy one as needed.

There’s also the default options of a Ritual Knife (0, 1 or d3 Mortal Wounds at the end of Combat, depending on your roll), or a Living Whip (an Assault 6 gun that can shoot like a pistol in combat), but the Keeper is plenty killy already, so you should stick with the Aegis or the Hand as your primary choices for the Keeper of Secrets. While there’s a lot to like about the new Daemons, there are a few older units, particularly among the Chaos Space Marines, that we’ll also look at. The one downside is that we don’t have much synergy between the Daemon-heavy part of the army and our shooty parts–the Noise Marines don’t even get so much as an aura to benefit from, but we can cast Prescience on them to make up for it. Chaos Daemon tactics for the Games Workshop Warhammer 40k. Daemons are sentient embodiments of Chaos and collectively the greatest servants of the Chaos Gods and of Chaos itself as a universal force. I guess I am just a slave to their charm..

First off, the Keeper of Secrets now boasts higher BS, more Wounds, and a slightly higher Movement attribute, all of which are always welcome.

But further investigation reveals a deep, versatile faction that can work well either on its own or as part of a soup army.

Keep 40k WeirdMore than four thousand words in and we’ve barely touched the tip of what can be done with Slaanesh! These changes make a big difference, as the Keeper really wants to stay and and then get into combat ASAP, especially now the larger model size makes it harder to hide from enemy sight lines and easier to focus down. The Dual Avenger build is still good enough that you want one, as quite a lot of the flexible relics and abilities are very powerful in the right matchups, so you want one around to buff up as appropriate, but Dual Thermals are great on the wing-giant robots.To back up the brutal power these represent you want bodies, but one of the problems with trying to mix hordes and Knights is tripping yourself up – Plaguebearers in particular are very slooooow unless you invest in buffs that you could be spending Knight points on.Daemonettes seem like a good solution to this – they’re on smaller bases, and in a full Slaanesh detachment can pick up Advance and Charge from the characters, so they’re mobile enough to clear a path when needed. The Flawless Host Warlord Trait (Ultimate Confidence) gives the Warlord 3 bonus attacks from the legion trait instead of 1, which is incredibly good now that the Lord Discordant can get Legion Traits (more on him later). Finally, the Horrible Fascination Rule prevents enemy models within 6″ of the Epitome from Falling Back unless they can roll under their Ld value on 3D6. Tactics for Khorne, Tzeench, Slaanesh, and Nurgle Demon army. To use Veterans of the Long War, we’ll need to use a non-Renegade legion.

HQ: Keeper of Secrets: At […] The biggest downside to the new Keeper of Secrets is that 16-Wound attribute. Daemons of Khorne are bellicose and warlike, seeking to spill blood and claim skulls for their master. After being stuck with a dopey metal model and mediocre rules for the better part of 3 editions, Slaanesh’s Greater Daemons are making a comeback in a big way. In contrast Pavane can be taken on a Keeper of Secrets, The Masque, Slaanesh Heralds and Daemon Princes w/ Mark of Slaanesh.

Some of these tactics become even more powerful when coupled … The Slaanesh powers aren’t amazing, but there are a few we’ll want to use. … Before we go down this road, I should note: Most of the time you’re probably going to be better off just taking Syll’Esske or a Lord Discordant and doing a mixed detachment rather than trying to make a bunch of combos and pure detachments work. Given that the average roll on 3D6 is 10.5, that gives you good odds of trapping a unit in combat if the Epitome is nearby – which might actually let you get some use out of the Hysterical Frenzy power. With the 2019 releases of Wrath and Rapture and Hedonites of Slaanesh for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar, 40k players have been treated to a slew of brand-new units and updated models for Slaaneshi daemons along with updated rules for their use in the 41st millennium. Having one survive long enough to make it into combat is essentially going to depend on your ability to give the opponent other targets to shoot at, and in most cases you’re going to get more utility out of a winged Daemon Prince who can’t be shot at unless they’re the closest target. I was wondering what all your opinions are on them as well as past experiences on how well they work.

I am going to focus on tactics for enemy model manipulation using The Masque with a unit of Horrors and a unit of Daemonettes. Of these, the Flawless Host, who have to be aligned with Slaanesh post-FAQ, are among the best, with a trait called Death to the Imperfect that gives their INFANTRY, HELBRUTES, BIKERS, and CHARACTERS an additional attack for every 6 they roll To Hit in the Fight phase (this goes off in addition to the Death to the False Emperor ability, making them doubly good against Imperial enemies).

The Enrapturess has a modified Herald statline that exchanges the +1 Strength buff for improved summoning, a wide aura that causes Perils of the Warp on any doubles for an enemy psyker, a 1 in 6 chance to return an entire model to a unit of nearby Slaaneshi Daemons, and a mid-ranged shooting attack with two modes. It also doesn’t help that Slaanesh daemons lack a full counterpart marine legion with its own bullshit rules to complement them. Deadly. In Warhammer 40k magic is represented by psychic powers.

Slaaneshi forces are split into two major factions that we’ll be talking about today: Daemons of Slaanesh and Chaos Space Marines devoted to Slaanesh. Well, that might could just work out sort of OK. Also I couldn’t fit a third Venomcrawler into the list. The biggest problem with Syll’Esske is mobility: While the Daemon Prince has 9″ Movement and the ability to advance and charge in a mono-faction detachment, the lack of FLY makes it easy for opponents to screen important targets from Syll’Esske’s axe.
