My friend bought a 1k sons army a few weeks ago, and we are going to play a match soon. I already have a 2k point regular space marine army with either a captian or tigurius, and im building a new chaos daemons army. I would like to know if anyone could best help me with this, I've read that space marines get eaten alive because of the Str 5, AP 3 bolters. For my daemons army, ive bought 20 plaguebearers (5 of which are in a command squad box set), 40 bloodletters, 20 daemonettes, 30 horrors and a changeling, 2 daemon princes, a soulgrinder, 2 squads of flamers, 1 squad of bloodcrushers, 1 squad of seekers of slaanesh, and my HQs are: one bloodthirster, one keeper of secrets, and one great unclean one. any help would be good, or any tips on what to do, please and thanks.

his bolters are S4 AP3

and TS's are SLOW and suck in combat (well... they are better then a normal marine... but arnt as good as normal combat troops)


i would suggest loking him up in close combat to avoid both Phsycic powers and AP3 pwnage :D

thats what i was going to do, i was going to take my nurgle squads and use them as a screen during the first waves and then flank and enter melee with my seekers and my changer of ways, then march him down with bloodletters, but then again, i dont know chaos daemons, so im not sure of a viable strategy

the only thing i know about deamons, is they must deepstrike their entire army

this means you basicly deepstrike as close as you can to him :D

just make sure you have somthing that can pop rhinos

eh was going to give my two daemon princes wings and get em up close to stop most of the stuff to destroy them, and the soulgrinder is a cannon unit so i can use that, but my options are limited really

For your daemons, you could probably beat him mercilessly because, as mentioned earlier, Thousand Sons do not want to be in close combat. This can work even better to your advantage, as if you toss the bloodthirster or Keeper of Secrets into a squad, they might just survive until their own assault phase - preventing you from getting shot.

Take all the fast nasties like seekers etc, and make you daemon princes Tzeentch with bolt only, for the cheapness of a monstrous creature that also has a Str8 AP1 in case he is enclosed in rhinoes!


And as for space marines, just hug cover and those AP3 bolters won't do much. You will out-shoot him with no problem at all.
