PostSubject: Daemonic warband, what do you think?   Thu 19 Nov 2009 - 22:38

hey guys,

i recently knocked this set of rules up for my girlfriend who is dead set on using her daemonettes as she thinks they are pretty . i am no expert at rules and i just want some input so find out what could make this warband better, this is meant for a generic daemon warband, rather than devoted to a particular god.

cheers and happy Xmas






Special Rules:


Dangerous to Know: Because of its rather terrifying nature a
Daemonic Warband would find it very hard to keep any Hired Swords! Therefore, a
Daemonic Warband may never hire any type of Hired Sword.



Choice of
Warriors:



A Daemonic Warband must include a
minimum of three models. You have 500 Gold Crowns to recruit your initial Warband.
The maximum number of warriors in the Warband may never exceed 15.



  • Cult Leader: The Daemonic must have one Master
    to lead it no more, no less.

  • Possessed: Your Warband may include up to two
    possessed.

  • Sorceror: Your Warband may include one Sorceror.

  • Lesser Daemons: Your Warband may include up to
    five Lesser Daemons.

  • Devotees: Your Warband may include any number
    of Devotees.

  • Daemonties: Your Warband may include any
    number of Daemonties.

  • Beastmen: Your Warband may include up to three
    Beastmen




Starting
Experience:



  • Cult Leader starts with 20 Experience.
  • Sorceror starts with 8 Experience.
  • Possessed starts with 5 Experience
  • Devotees start with 0 Experience.
  • Beastmen starts with 0 Experience.



Maximum
Characteristics



With the exception of the Lesser
Daemons and Daemonties which do not accrue experience all other members of the
Daemonic use the maximum characteristics for Humans.



Daemonic'
Skill Tables



  • Cult Leader may choose from the Combat,
    Shooting, Academic, Strength or Speed.

2)Attack the enemy, Causing a Strength 2 hit, but forcing the enemy to lose
one attack (to a minimum of one).

**Sacrificial Blade:
Many victims have been claimed by the owners of these blades, and as such all
injury rolls are at +1 by the bearer.

Vision of Torment

The spell
has a range of 6 and must be cast on the closest enemy model.If the mage is
in combat he must choose his target from those in base contact. The affected model
is stunned, if the enemy cannot be stunned ii is knocked down instead.




Diff 10



Eye of God

You may
use this once per battle, choose a model within 6 and roll D6 and consult
the table:


1=
model taken out of action, does not have to roll on serious injury table
after.


2-5=
model gain +1 to any characteristics(chosen by caster)


6= +1
to all characteristics for battle


Diff 7



Dark Blood

Range
of 8 and causes D3 S5 hits, it hits the first model in its path. After using
this spell the mage must roll on injury table for himself, treat out of
action as stunned.


Diff 8

Lure of Chaos

range of 12 and must be cast on closest enemy. Roll a D6 and add the mages
LD to the score, then roll D6 and add targets LD. If the mage beats the
opponent he gains control of the model until the model passes a LD test in
this recovery phase. The controlled model cannot commit suicide, but can
attack models on his side, but will not fight models in the mages warband. If
he was previously in hand-to-hand combat with the mage they must move 1
apart immeditely.


Diff 9

Looks very similar to the Possessed Warband to be perfectly honest.

If she can stomach only using one or two of her favorite daemonettes she could just play a Possessed warband and use them as Possessed.

Also, some example rules for deamonettes from the Border Town Burning supplement can be found in the BTB Bestiary. You could mix those rules with either the Possessed, Carnival of Chaos or your own warband rules

Hey can any of you official types tell me if the daemon armor save is reduced by strength like normal armor?

I'm not an official type, but according to Carnival of Chaos it is, or negated completely by magical attacks.

Well, as Hero pointed out she could always just use the Possessed warband rules, and take two possessed each with a great claw to count as daemonettes. She could also just play Carnival of Chaos, and come up with proxy names for everything (treating plaguebearers as daemonettes).

The warband looks good enough, though. Here are my comments on the warband, mostly just my thoughts rather than necessary changes or anything like that:

Since all characters other than possessed and daemons are supposed to use human max stats, that means the leader and wizard need to have their movement reduced to 4.

Also, I would go ahead and give the lesser daemons an armor save of 5+, which is pretty standard for the few cases of daemons in Mordheim.

What models does she plan on using for daemonites? At-a-glance they seem a lot like Nurglings, but there's not really any direct analogue for the other deities.

It seems like you may as well just use chaos rituals for their magic list

The sorcerer probably deserves academic skills.

In addition to the BTB Bestiary, there are stats for lesser daemons of all types except bloodletters listed in the back of Town Cryer 14, although if I remember correctly they're a tad overpowered for starting warbands. If you're interested you could, however, use them as a starting point and perhaps tone them down a bit.

Cult leader = almost a mercenary captain
Sorceror = almost a magister
Possesseds = same as the official ones
(no mutants? mutants are cooler than an anonymous generic cult leader)

Demonite = useless since they are banished almost completely at every route test. Quite frustrating.
Devotee = same as official cultists
Beastmen = same as official ones
Lesser demons = almost a plaguebearer (just without their nurglish traits, still better than a dark soul and perhaps the only thing you added that i may like)

mutations = the very same official ones
magic = way too similar to the lesser magic chart

As said before, let her use the possessed warband. Daemonettes as either mutants or possesseds, and a slaaneshi twist on the other henchmen (with a lot of white, black, pink and purple details).

cheers myntokk, for demonites my girlfriend bought a pack of tyranid warriors and she uses them as possessed, the ripper swarms we use as demonites, my thinking behind it was small bugs smakes and other insufficient creatures possessed by deamons etc and mutated into a small but vicious enemy en-masse. also i did want to find more of a chaosy magic list but this is the first one i found so i just stuk with it

And actually the chaos rituals are pretty chaotic Very Happy

Looks good, although I missed the daemonites LD the first go 'round. I would definitely put it up much higher, like 9 or 10. Without a pretty high leadership they're worthless since they'll almost definitely be destroyed due to their instability every time you route.

If you were playing with a large group or in a store I would suggest using Possessed or Carnival "counts as" rules, but since it sounds like it's just something you wrote up for your girlfriend to play casually I wouldn't worry about playing anything "official" as long as it works for you guys.
