|My Herald of Khorne / First bloodcrusher|
I also decided to devote this blog exclusively to those two armies as well as nay tips, tutorials I can come up with.
I also played my first fantasy 500 point match last night at Phoenix, I lost but it was a close battle. we where doing pairs and my partner decided to chase every shiny thing he saw in the room and thus was never actually present for the match. Two vs two rapidly turned into two vs one.
I was facing warriors of chaos teamed with tomb kings, by turn two I had managed to avoid any casualties from ranged attacks and successfully locked all units into close combat. This neutralized the tomb kings player and turned it into a one vs one match, at least until his scorpion appeared on my rear flank.
I learned a few things about Daemons of chaos, One bloodletters are a nasty unit if you can get them locked into close combat and avoid losses from ranged, Bloodcrushers are very difficult to put down and I will be including more of them in the larger army. However Daemonettes being fast are not very effective, Strength 3 + armor piercing attacks is only a -1 armor save. A large group would be effective in locking up a heavy hitter but point for point swarms of nurglings will out preform the daemonettes.
With the new 25% lord/hero rule on a 2200 point game I now have to decide how to spend my 525 points on heroes. And I am currently trying to decide on a flavor of chaos, with leanings to Tzenetch or Chaos United.
