AoS 2 - Hosts of Slaanesh Discussion

Recommended Posts

the crab claws we've seen, even one from awhile back, are for Possessed CSM. 

So I'm still working out my doubles list for my team tourney game.

What I am down to is this. 
Seekers
Exalted
-General
-Gryph Charm

-1 hit in combat

3 fiends

30 nettes

5 hellstriders

 

or, drop the nettes for either a 10 man squad or hellstriders that can go support my ally and take 6 fiends and have a line of really tough to kill models. My first summon would be an enrapturess or 2 to begin being able to shoot. 

I've even though of doing Pretenders just for the second trait, like 6" pile in, or the heal.

i do not have any experience, I converted my own keeper of secrets, and a buddy gifted me an exalted daemon.

I use Creature Caster miniatures extensively and love them - though for various narrative reasons I've converted some heavily.

For example, the Queen of Ecstasy is an excellent model, but I found her rather "busy" visually, so I replaced her head and hair, and lower pair of arms, with the Forge World Exalted Greater Daemon of Slaanesh's bits.

Furthermore, this reinforced the narrative, since my Exalted Keeper of Secrets (Czumneth Ereshkigal, Architect of Misery) managed to gain more power after the NOVA Open 2018 narrative, so becoming bigger and beefier while still having the same face and head (and arms) was pretty neat. 

Pics available upon request, of course. I also use creature caster for my lesser Keepers, and I think I have pics of them as well (some from the Prime Dominion narrative event).

Will these models be good proxies for Fiends? What would you say?

Without the riders sure. More in line with the lord on snake. Which for me is the current centrepiece model. So yeah would be all for it.

I think Raging Heroes' Centaurs work better as fiends personally. That is what I use.

Hello all, I have a question relating to the Slaanesh start collecting set, which I imagine you can easily answer. Basically, I see there are about three or four variants on the chariot model which it contains: the exalted seeker or the seeker (with or without a herald) or a hellflayer. Basically, am I right in saying these are all variations on one kit, and you can build any of them from the SC box?

In the box contains the sprues of the seeker chariot/hellflayer twice (which will become the Exalted Chariot.

The only thing I have seen is, that in the start collecting box was only the building manual for the exalted Chariot while in the seeker chariots box there are all variantes in the building manual.

Ah, thanks @EMMachine I think I see what you’re saying. To get any exalted chariot, you basically need to buy the start collecting box or two of the seeker chariot boxes. The herald is, I presume, just a figure option in either set. Thanks for that!

Hello everyone! I got into Slaanesh after seeing the infernal enrapturess in the W&R box.  I went a little crazy on getting models and I am loving the way they look. Though I haven't had a chance to play with them yet. Here is my first list cc feedback is appreciated. I'm also fairly new to AOS and not too sure about rules for battalions. Can the daemonettes in the battalion also count as battleline and does the battalion grant an additional artifact?

Exalted greater daemon

- general, lash of despair, cruel and sadistic

Daemon prince

- fly, sword

Infernal enrapturess

- icon of excess

Hellstriders x5

- claw spear

Hellstriders x5

- hellscourge

Daemonette x30

Fiends x6

Seekers x10

Choir of torment battalion

Total points: 1910/2000

Daemonettes in a battalion also count as battleline and the battalion grants an extra artefact :)

 

The list looks solid, to me. Only thing I would change is swapping the lash of despair for breathtaker, and adding your extra command trait onto the exalted keeper to give it devotee of torment (you get two command traits as you're pretenders) Slaanesh are hard to use.

What do you think about giving the EKoS  allure of Slaanesh and devotee of torment. Then if I run the hellstriders + banners then the enemy unit will be at -2 to hit against the EKoS.

A good plan, I'm more of a fan of the realm artefacts. The Slaanesh ones are just okay at the moment.

Hey all,

I've been talked into running slaanesh for a path to glory campaign and wanted to know if rules had been released for taking the infernal enrapturess in a warband? Would i just use the herald restrictions since it's a herald or does it have it's own warband rules yet?

I tend to run her with Allure and Scale of Ignax. With hellstriders nearby that makes her -2 to be hit with a 4+ save vs MW, does a good job of keeping her alive.  Though I have also experimented with Allure + Gryph feather which gives her -3 to be hit making her utterly invincible in close combat but super vulnerable to magic.

Allure/Scales will be a good combo. It'll help protect against stuff like evocators and with hellstriders, a -2 to hit will make a lot of things that hit on 4+ become 6+ and makes most models that hit on a 3+ on a 5+. Also can protect you vs terrorgeists or the lucky Warp Cannon that you are bound to see.

So if I'm playing a hardcore melee army like orks, then use that gryph feather. And if they have some decent magic users, then go with scales.

Yeah, more or less. Though Orruks can bring some nasty MWs if they want to. For example, a double Maw crusher list can bellow you into the ground. Also, Orruk to hit rolls are pretty poor in general outside their heroes. Remember -3 to hit is only helpful if they already are 3+ or better to hit. Just gotta judge it game by game I guess. If it was a tournament where I had to choose beforehand, I'd probably go with scale. In most situations -2 to be hit and 4+ save vs MWs is going to get more mileage than -3 to be hit. 

That said, there is also the consideration that Gryph feather gives -1 against shooting so if you are up against a gunline it can be very valuable.

The feather charm also gives you more tactical flexibility with your hellstriders, which I like. 

Thats true, with the gryph feather I don't have to dedicate my hellstriders to my EKoS and can send them to buff the daemonettes or the seekers
