Fun idea: DAEMONS!
Just got a peek at the new Daemons codex and was fairly surprised at the direction it's taken. Lesser daemons are *cheap* as hell and one can put together some pretty awesome horde armies with it. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed with Khorne's entries, seeing as it looks kind of hard to bring hordes of Bloodletters to bear without taking some pretty nasty casualties. Just imagine what a decent dakka army would do to their measly T3 hides! Tzeentch, however, struck me as interesting. Take this unit:
20 Pink Horrors led by a Level 3 Herald of Tzeentch with an Exalted Reward and Exalted Locus of Conjuration
Assume, of course, that the Herald has Prescience. That's 4D6 twin-linked S6 AP4 shots, 3D6 from the Herald (who had spent 1 charge on Prescience) and 4D6 from the Horrors. Which scores, deep strikes and, with that Exalted Reward (read: Portalglyph), churns out small gangs of scoring daemons at random. All for the tidy sum of 330 pts. I think I might have a project for when I'm done with Deathwing...
