But, in part due to the new Grey Knights codex, I really can't play my Daemons in a competitive way right now. Since the release of the codex in April, I've been to three tournaments and they were all choked with Grey Knight players. In fact, Blob's Park was about 1/3 Grey Knights. It's still unbelievable to me that I managed to not play even one, but in July I played a tournament where 3 of my 4 opponents were Grey Knight players.

I played some games with them (mostly against a friend who plays Imperial Guard). In each of the games, they just fell right over. If I wasn't able to get in cover, they basically just instantly died to his tank shooting, except for Abaddon who is a tough customer. A few times the games were over before the end of turn 3 and they might have been over sooner if he hadn't been rolling terribly.
After having the Daemonic invulnerable saves, the armour saves of the Marines just made them seem like wet paper. And after the 3 CSM players at Blob's Park, I can definitely say I had an advantage by being the "real" Daemonic deal, even if they did have more shooting.
|It's hard to tell, but they are all on water bases.|
I've got the majority of the army all ready painted up in the Black Legion colors. I don't know if I want to finish them and hang onto them for later or if I want to finish them and see if I can sell them. Hubby-to-be has sold a few armies and gotten enough money to buy his next one, so I may give that a try for my next army. I'm thinking Space Wolves with lots of Thunderwolf Cavalry.
For now, they're just going to have some alone time while I consider my options.
