|Varakir||Have you considered distracting your opponent with cat videos and then 'accidentally' knocking it off the table?|

I'd suggest flying units. Preferably allied Heldrakes, as it is weak against air.
Unfortunately, this doesn't mean they won't have a dedicated AA unit unless the person is opting to be a bigger dick by having 3 Knights.

The thing people seem to miss is that while 1 Knight is fairly easy for a prepared opponent to take down, 3 or more Knights is a different story. Remember, Knight players consider the Apocalyptic Explosion marker upon death to be a feature, not a weakness. Also, a Knight detachment screened by allied Grey Knight PA units will have a huge Warp Quake bubble around them, deterring Deep Strike Alpha attacks.

|SonofVulkan||I'm not completely up to speed with all the rules, but would the bonus from Rending help Slaanesh Daemon princes penetrate the knight. Maybe even a full squad of slaanesh heralds on steeds with greater etherblades?|

Is ignoring it a possibility at all? Just kill off the rest of the opponent while the Knight tackles one unit at a time?

Well first try today - Didn't exactly go as expected.
I put a Tzeentch Daemon Prince, with armor, wings and 2 greater gifts on the table, alongside Bel'Akor.
The Daemon Prince gets toast in round 2, as he gets 9 wounds and i roll 5 2's. Allrighty then.
After that, Bel'Akor charges in wiffs 4 of his 6 attacks. Remember that he is hitting on 3's. 1 pen and 1 glance.
The Imperial Knight strikes back, hits once and rolls a 6 - So Bel'Akor is removed from play.
Good game. How swell it is that GW decided to introduce a STR D model into regular games that you cannot exclude as it doesn't require escalation.

If the pure Daemon theme is your thing, then you can ally in some Oblits as they have the Daemon rule (meaning you can even hit them with the Grimoire!) and then take your Cultist 'tax' to represent the poor stupid mortals who've gone and unleashed all this hell in the first place.
MoN Oblits require S10 to insta-kill, and can at least open up with some lascannon fire, helping you to strip the shield and open up the other facings to your Flickering Fire/Lash Princes.

1) 2-3 Deamon princes and either smash or Lash it to death.
2) Blobs of Plaguebearers who would glance it to death with Touch of Rust
3) Ally in Helbrutes via CSM and bring them in a formation to melta it.
Well at least it gives me a couple of ways to handle it. The fact that the shield doesn't work in CC is a big up on my early estimations, so it does help alot.
Thanks guys, you're awesome!
