Most Dangerous Khorne DP of all time?
I keep coming across the question of, What is the most dangerous or fearsome Daemon Prince out of Chaos Space Marines and Khorne Daemonkin?
Now right away people might say Bloodthirtster from Khorne Daemonkin.
It is the most fear unit at my local Wargaming store. But is there something worse than that? Now for this discussion I am not allowing Be'Lakor, a DP from another God, or anything from the Chaos Daemon Codex.
So I'm just going to jump right into it!
First up is 1 of my favorites and that's the Prince of Khorne from the CSM Codex.
He's got you basic DP stat line. For wargear I give him a Wings and Power armour with the Axe of Blind Fury.
His WS is dropped to 8 but on the charge he becomes S9 with 8-13 attacks AP2. He's going to kill something. and this clocks in at 255 points, which is the base of the Cheapest Bloodthirster (250pts).
I'd rather choose this DP over the Bloodthirster of unfettered fury.
Now the DP from the Khorne Daemonkin Codex.
Same stat line as the others.
Give him wings, and power armour. Now for his weapon you can give him Goredrinker that grants him instant death and S10 if his kills 8+ models the game with added benefits or Kor'lath, the axe of ruin, turning him into a bloodthrister when he dies. I'd personal take the Goredrinker. With all that he is S7-10 with 8 attacks AP2. Tallies up to 250. Now it is just as expensive as the cheapest Bloodthirster but I still feel the DP is better.
Not going to go over the Bloodthirsters, they don't have any options besides taking the Bloodthirster that fits your play style of the mission.
So it mainly focuses on the DP's, I think they're more dangerous and stronger in combat given all there wargear, But I feel the Bloodthirsters are more durable and survivable. They get a big boost to WS and BS, +1 to T W I and A.
So I my opinion I'd choose the DP, they're underestimated which gives them a small advantage, and the Thirsters are overestimated to where, that's your opponent's first target
