From the perspective of Khornate Daemons, at least, this seems extremely overcosted. For an extra 25 points you're giving units BotBG (which is a very, very cheap upgrade) and +1A, which is either too expensive (+1A on a Herald isn't worth 25 points) or pointless (Bloodletters don't really need the +1A to stab the face off of an enemy unit). Bloodcrushers, the only other unit that can take the Icon... are kind of the worst of both worlds.
Hi Rushputin -- The logic was along these lines. Consider the old Mark of Khorne (5 pts per model) or Daemonic Mutation (10 pts per model); both of which added +1 attack per model. If the squad is even modestly sized, the extra attack would have more than paid for itself. For chaos space marines, it looked like a bargain! If we suppose that +1A is worth less, say 3pts per model, we'd still make the points back once more than 8 models are taken. But I take your point about the daemons side of things / not needing the extra A.Cheers!
Yeah, I looked at it, briefly, from the CSM perspective and it seemed reasonable enough... but I didn't want to dwell on it because I don't play the army and therefore don't feel like I can comment authoritatively.With Daemons, I've got the mono-Khorne thing going so it's easier for me.
Hey Jabs. Sorry for the indelicate approach -could you kindly fire me an email: gentlemanones at g mail. etc. I've been trying to reach you but can't quite manage it for some reason. Much obliged. B.
