Obscuras Daemons - Warhammer 40k Army List

Rate this Entry

I know that this Blog is under Painting/Modelling, however I am going to go off-topic again just to add in my current 1,500 point army list for 40k. As I have a terrible memory, I like to have everything written down and the rules set out after my army list, for that time I get Aura of Acquiescence mixed up with Transfixing Gaze (like the last time I played :P) or can't remember what Furious Charge does again.

Warning: This is long.

RULES

Independent Character: All independent characters have the Move Through Cover (roll an extra d6 when rolling to move through difficult terrain and pick the dice with the highest score) and Skilled Rider rule.

Monstrous Creature: Have Move Through Cover (roll an extra d6 when rolling to move through difficult terrain and pick the dice with the highest score). Cannot go to ground, 50% of body must be in cover to count as such. Standing in area terrain does not automatically confer a cover save – 50% rule takes precedence. Cover works exactly as for vehicles. If you cannot clearly tell if 50% of the model’s body is covered, modify its cover save by -1. All wounds inflicted in close combat ignore armour saves. In addition, monstrous creatures roll an additional d6 for armour penetration. (2d6 + Str) when attacking a vehicle in close combat. Relentless (can shoot with rapid fire and heavy weapons counting as stationary even if moved the previous turn, and are allowed to assault in the same turn they fired them), can fire two of their weapons each Shooting Phase at the same target.

Jetbikes: Can move up to 12” in the movement phase, moving freely over all models and terrain. However, if it begins or finishes in difficult terrain, it must take a dangerous terrain test. Jetbike assault moves are not slowed down by difficult terrain. However, each model entering or moving through difficult terrain, or assaulting an enemy who is standing in difficult terrain or behind an obstacle, must take a dangerous terrain test.

Jump Infantry:
Can move up to 12” in the Movement phase, moving freely over all models and terrain. However, if it begins or finishes in difficult terrain, it must take a dangerous terrain test. All jump infantry models may enter the battle by ‘deep strike’ if they wish. Jump infantry fall back 3d6”.  Jump infantry assault 6” like normal infantry. This move is slowed by difficult terrain as the unit always covers the last few yards of an assault on foot.

Beasts & Cavalry: Move like infantry, except when falling back, they move 3d6” due to their speed. They are Fleet (A unit with this rule may assault in the same turn in which it has run). When assaulting, they move up to 12”. If assaulting through cover, beasts and cavalry are slowed by difficult terrain – roll for the distance they can move just as you would for infantry, but double the result of the highest scoring die.

Daemon:
All daemons are Fearless (automatically pass all Morale and Pinning tests, will never fall back, they can go to ground voluntarily), Invulnerable (Eternal Warrior (immune to instant death), all saves are invulnerable saves unless otherwise noted), independent characters in this list cannot join units of Daemons belong to a different Chaos God or units of Furies. Also have Daemonic Assault, see below.

Daemonic Assault: No model in this army is placed during deployment. All units start the game in reserve. At the beginning of the first turn, divide the army into two groups that must include, as much as possible, the same number of units. Pick one to assault first then roll a d6. On a 3-6 the Powers of Chaos agree, on a 1-2 they choose the other group. This arrives on the first turn using Deep Strike rules (see below). The remaining units are held in reserve and their arrival is rolled for as normal. When it is available, it enters play by Deep Strike.

Fleet: A unit with this rule may assault in the same turn in which it has run.

Daemonic Flight: Moves like Jump Infantry.

Daemonic Gaze: Rays of pure unholy energy burst from the eyes of the daemon, incinerating its enemies. Range 24”, Strength 5, AP 3, Assault 3.

Unholy Might: +1 Strength.

Aura of Acquiescence: Count as equipped with assault grenades (models equipped with assault grenades don’t suffer the penalty to their initiative for assaulting enemies through cover, but fight as normal) and defensive grenades (models assaulting against units with defensive grenades gain no Assault Bonus attacks. However if the defending unit was already locked in combat from a previous turn, or had gone to ground, these grenades have no effect) but receive no Strength bonus in close combat against vehicles.

Soporific Musk: Have the Hit & Run special rule (unit may choose to leave close combat at the end of the Assault phase. It must take an initiative test. If the test is failed nothing happens. If the test is passed, the unit breaks from combat and immediately moves up to 3d6” in a straight line in any direction. No sweeping advances are made, enemy units no longer locked in combat may consolidate. Not slowed by difficult terrain, affected by dangerous terrain as normal.)

Transfixing Gaze: Models in base contact with the daemon lose an Attack in close combat.

Rending Claws: Count as a pair of close combat Rending weapons (any roll to wound of 6 automatically causes a wound, regardless of the target’s Toughness, and counts as AP2. Against vehicles an armour penetration roll of 6 allows a further d3 to be rolled with the result added to the total score).

Mark of Tzeentch: 4+ invulnerable save, instead of 5+.

Bolt of Tzeentch: A ranged weapon. Range 24”, Strength 8, AP 1, Assault 1.

Master of Sorcery: The model can use one extra ranged weapon in its Shooting phases, but not the same one twice as normal.

Soul Devourer: The daemon counts as armed with a Power Weapon (models wounded in close combat by power weapons are not allowed armour saves), in addition, if a model suffers any unsaved wounds from the Daemon’s close combat attacks, it must immediately take a Leadership test for each wound suffered on its own Leadership value. If any of these tests are failed, the victim suffers instant death.

Warpfire: A ranged attack, Range 18”, Strength 4, AP 4, Assault 3.

Warp Jaws: Screamers count as equipped with melta bombs (has to be clamped or placed to inflict enough damage, models can only ever make one attack. Against vehicles, melta bombs have 8+2d6 armour penetration).

Blessing of the Blood God: Model has a 2+ Invulnerable save against wounds caused by psychic powers or force weapons.

Furious Charge: In a turn in which they assaulted into combat they add +1 to both their Initiative and Strength characteristics when attacking in close combat.

Fury of Khorne: The close combat attacks of a model with this rule gains the Rending special rule (any roll to wound of 6 automatically causes a wound, regardless of the target’s Toughness, and counts as AP2. Against vehicles an armour penetration roll of 6 allows a further d3 to be rolled with the result added to the total score).

    While I'd prefer my Herald of Tzeentch to stay near/with the Horrors for protection, the Herald of Slaanesh would be better served on a Mount, unfortunately I heavily converted her and as such it would require a complete overall and obtaining another rare and expensive Seeker model in order to do so :(.

    I like my Seekers because they are better than Daemonettes, better models (I really dislike those claws). The Fiends are a little heavy on the points side, that extra attack and strength costs you an extra 13 points a model! Also, the model is just.. mm. It could work with some conversion but if I did Fiends I would definitely change some of it. They're decent back-up units for some of the lighter Fast Attacks, though their high points cost means that I can't take more than a small handful without swapping out several units to get them. 5 Fiends would swap out nicely for the 10 Furies. (150 in both cases)

    The Daemon Prince comment is fairly valid. Two set-ups are also possible that could be swapped out easily enough.

    Daemon Prince of Nurgle: Daemonic Flight, Mark of Nurgle, Noxious Touch (180)

    Jump Infantry, +1 Toughness, Close Combat Attacks wound on a 2+ (poison). [Remove Screamer leader's Unholy Might (5 points) to make up the points cost.]

    Daemon Prince of Slaanesh: Daemonic Flight, Mark of Slaanesh, Soporific Musk, Aura of Acquiescence (175)

    Jump Infantry, +1 Initiative, Hit & Run, count as equipped with assault and defensive grenades (can charge through difficult terrain without taking a difficult terrain test, enemy units do not get an Assault Attack Bonus when charging.)

    Obviously which one to use depends on which army I'm fighting that day. I've found that my Screamers backed up with my Keeper of Secrets tend to eat through tanks. My biggest problem with my army is keeping them alive long enough to survive to do some damage (and sometimes, to even get onto the board! Three of my units exploded on impassable terrain last time I played. Still won though. :D)

    *cough* Of course, this army list is valid for Planetstrike: Asaault, but not general 40k as it has four Fast Attack choices (whoops!) so I really do need to decide what my next unit to collect will be. I have a very strict visual theme for my army, and I prefer units which fit the "feel" of Obscuras - that is, fast close combat or powerful ranged weapons. Fiends, with a complete model makeover, I've been considering for a little extra punch, though I think they're better for mowing through infantry troops than divebombing the tanks.

    At the end of the day though, I'm happy to have finally collected a valid (sort of!) 1500 army of models which are based and ready to roll :). It's quite the achievement and I'm going to bask in it. Especially as it was originally a Hordes of Chaos army! (Furies were Core in that.)

    Next up is greenstuffing cracks, slotbases and the robes on the Daemon Prince I lifted up on curling wires. And the Keeper of Secrets.. and those two new Horrors.. and converting that Screamer.. Okay, maybe I'm not quite finished.

    And that's not even thinking about painting. This is going to take forever.

    Hrm, now considering putting in a group of 10 Daemonettes so my Herald of Slaanesh could sit with them and they're Fleet, so they're no slouches. Modelling wise, with the plastics I can do a straight swap with the claws for dryad arms, which suit my army a lot better - and I can wrap tentacles (green stuff) or chains around the one-boobed corset which I HATE. Do love their feet though. Oddly. The unpretty faces really don't matter in my army, though I may greenstuff fill some of the wrinkles in :P. Maybe chop off their noses...
