Some WHFB Daemon rules updates

Some little bits of information I have gathered

Bloodletters of Khorne are now strength 4, with special rules MR1, Scaly skin 6+, Daemonic and Daemon of Khorne. They have the daemonic gift Hellblade.... 14 points

I cant see any reference to killing blow but that dosnt mean they loose it as the sword may grant it.

Pink Horrors stats stay the same, special rules are Daemonic, Daemon of Tzeentch, Blue horrors of Tzeentch, and a unit counts as a level 1 caster.... 13 points

Yay Blue horrors of Tzeentch. No idea how it works but yay!

Plaugebearers are strength 4 Toughness 4, have the Daemonic gift plaguesword, and are Daemons of Nurgle, and Daemonic.... 13 points

Daemonettes get 2 attacks, and become Daemons of Slannesh + Daemonic for 11 points

Bloodcrushers are now special, 3+ a unit, the jugger mounts get toughness 4 and 3 wounds like the WOC ones, and are 65 points. With the scaly skin rules Daemons now have a 3+ 5++ save monstrous cav option!

Edit: might have this wrong, crushers may have 4+ 5++ save since the new WOC juggers only add +2 to the save

Flamers appear to have the same stats as the WD rules, and are 40 points. Special rules flames of Tzeentch, Daemons of Tzeentch, Warpflame, Daemonic and skirmishers.

There appears to be an option to upgrade a unit of Plaguebearers to have regenerate, and another option that if you score any roll of 6 to hit with a  poisonattack, an additional strength 4 hit is made. Another option is upgrading poison to 5+


  1. Good rules changes....shame about the miniatures....absolutely fucking shit....The cannon of Khorne looks like an upscaled Hot Wheels shit....almost makes want to go and play ancients.

  2. I hope they kept killing blow on letters cause they went up two points and lost a point of strength and only gained a 6+ scaly skin.

  3. I like them. Thanks for taking the time to post this, please let us know more as you get it :)

  4. Blood Letters have been broken before. I hope they loose killing blow, if with 2 points up.
    And I play with as well as against daemons!

  5. 6+ scaly skin is not even worth the paper it's printed on since most everything is S4. I'm sorry but 14 points for S4 T3 and 1 attack is too harsh. WoC are 14 points and much better than this. If they lose KB too then that will take the biscuit.

    1. The special rules "Khorne Daemon" etc may add something we dont know yet. I believe the deamonic gift "Hellblade" grants killing blow. Don't forget the 5+ ward save, its as good as a 4+ vs strength 4.

      I think the big winner here are Plague warriors. Strength 4 Toughness 4 poison with the possibility of further rules
