So, I'm considering entering a 1000 point tournament just after New Year and was weighing up whether to take my Death Guard forces, or my Mixed Daemon forces. I eventually thought that Mixed Daemons would be plenty of fun to play with on the basis that I suspect not many local folks have faced such a force before. The tournament is not a pure win/lose affair -- there are "soft" points to be earned for force construction, being a good competitor, and painting (etc). So, does anyone have any suggestions what a 1000 points daemon army should contain? There are some restrictions though: only 1 HQ and must have more troops than other force organization slots (total) and less than 300 points in FA, HS or Elites (each). Here's my initial list:
Herald of Tzeentch, Chariot, Bolt (95 points)
Herald of Khorne, Jugger, Might (120 points)
Daemon Prince, Mark of Tzeentch, Bolt (140 points)
10 Bloodletters (160 points)
7 Plaguebearers, instrument (110 points)
...from there, maybe the soul grinder (yeah, I know, its the only armoured thing) and some horrors for extra fire support. Perhaps some fiends or bloodcrushers (perhaps even dropping the Khorne Herald?) for extra combat support. Opinions anyone?
