Onwards and upwards….Adepticon Championships 2011


So after trying out the Dark Eldar I do not think that they will be an acceptable army for Adepticon. It is not because I think that they can't be good, it will just take too long to play test the army and find a combination that can deal with the heavy hitters like Space Wolves and Mech Guard. I just lack the time to make wholesale changes like trying out webway portals, and beastmaster packs, and all of the combination that is in the codex, and then painting them all up. I could do what some people are doing and always start in reserve, and then try to survive for several turns, but that is not my style.


So I have thought about some armies that can deal with Space Wolves, Mech Guard, Hordes, and now with the new FAQs, I need an army that can deal with a lot of terminators. This (as you can guess) will not be easy.


So I thought about taking Demons of Chaos.


Here is the list I was thinking about:


Lord of Change

3 Flamers

6 Horrors+Changling w/Bolt of Tzeentch

7 Horrors w/Bolt of Tzeentch

7 Horrors w/Bolt of Tzeentch

Demon Prince w/MoT, Bolt of Tzeentch, Iron Hide, Wings

Demon Prince w/MoT, Bolt of Tzeentch, Iron Hide, Wings

Demon Prince w/MoT, Bolt of Tzeentch, Iron Hide, Wings


I have always been a big fan of Tzeentch demons so I was going to build an army around them.

So it will be a pretty small army but really durable and 5 MC really pack a punch! The Tzeentch+Fateweaver combo makes for some good saves with the DPs have a 3+/4++ and with the re-roll from Fateweaver they are as durable as a fortuned Avatar. You need to be able to take 18 missile launchers a turn and still be functional, and this army can do it. It can mix it up in a assault with a lot of armies as well but it has some weaknesses. For example: If you make the MCs your preferred wave, you might get the wrong wave in and then you will get the MCs in turn #2 and trickling in. They will also have issues as your MCs scattering away from Fateweaver, and then you have to use the shooting phase to run back, and then everything starts to go pear-shaped.


So I thought I would bring the army that I was planning to bring all along…Demonhunters!!!


  1. Interesting. Looking forward to seeing the Demonhunter list you field.
