AoS Daemon Tactics

Warhammer AoS Tzeench Herald on Burning Chariot

Daemons are the stuff of chaos made physical. If you like to play the bad guy fielding awesome monsters then I imagine the AoS Daemon army may be the army for you!

Because Daemon are magic made manifest they can often be conjured up by chaos wizards. Different require different casting values. The more useful a unit is the easier it is to conjurer up.

May of the models in the Chaos Daemon army can be used in the Warhammer 40k and Warhammer 8th edition games too. If you play several different games then you can use the same models in all three games.

Daemons of Chaos Undivided

Warhammer Chaos Daemon Soul Grinder found in WH40k, 8th ed, and Age of SigmarThere are a number of units that are not aligned with any of the four chaos gods by default.

Daemons of Tzeentch

AoS Herald of Tzeench. A major magic user in the Age of Sigmar gamesTzeentch is the chaos god that excels in magic. As such you will find the highest concentration of daemon magic users here. Be careful though, magic users are rarely good in hand to hand combat. This means that you will want to team your Tzeentch units up with ones that can handle a fight like Khorne or mortal chaos units.

Get Familiar with Your Familiars

In the Warriors of Chaos section you will find an entry on ‘Familiars’ . Familiars do not have either the Mortal or Daemon key phrase, but for Chaos Wizards, including most of the Tzeentch units, Familiars are very useful. If you have a familiar within 6″ of a Chaos Wizard when he attempts to cast a spell, or attempts to unbind a spell, then you can add 1 to your roll score. Again Familiars are highly recommended! Do what you can to get one near your wizards.

There are no Familiar models available from Games Workshop at the moment so you will have to create your own. I created 3 using the blue horror models left over from a Herald of Tzeentch on Burning Chariot box. Lone Pink Horrors make good familiars too. Just let your opponent know what they are.

Daemons of Khorne

Khorne is the Blood god. Nothing pleases him more than to see the carnage of battle. It follows then that the followers of Khorne, including the Daemons of Khorne are the most blood thirsty of the Chaos armies.
