I think they're pretty good. Mark of Nurgle seems to be the mark to take. With no armour save, reducing the amount of wounds you take is kinda nice.

You have to pick your targets carefully too. Some dedicated melee units will eat spawn up. For their points, they're good at what they do, and their speed means you can pick your target.

Agree with both of the above, also great to attach a Lord to on a Juggy or Bike (I think the bike can attach?)

They die to focus fire, but are resilient enough to act as a Lord delievery unit, and if they get into combat, can ruin your day. Much better than last ed.

I cant see anything being as nasty as those guys with invis.. They destroyed any dedicated hth unit they encountered. Now mind you i would of faired better if i had lasting power.. As in no instability, but ack.. Nasty.

I ve been escorting my jugg lord with unmarked spawn and they are still good. If you just move thrpuhh or hug terrain they can weather shooting pretty decent.. Just have to make dangerous terrain rolls for the lord.

I had thousand sons outlast the spawn. It helps when every wound from a force weapon gibs a dude. I also cast terrify on them and they lost combat and ran off the board.

That works.. I had only CC units.. and while there were a few instant death weapons kicking around, I needed 5 to hit and 6 to wound still.. yikes!

I think my next game with the khorne daemons will be a bit different.. I do enjoy the CC potential they bring though.. Im thinking abouting buying a cannon.. but not sold yet. It would be the only vehicle in my ar,y so would seem a bt off. But.. a herald on a blood throne I could get behind.

I've been running the Tzeentch Scroll. It can be quite interesting. I think the trick is when to stop using it, I think that point is around turn 4. With a 3++ save, that S3 AP1 hit isn't so scary. If you're lucky enough to cast endurance on the unit (after, as you have to do Scrolls first), you can get wounds back via IWND. Or you could also roll Life Leech.

In my matchup with gulsnik, I had Kharn get into mellee with the invisible nurgle spawn unit.

Kharn still hitting on 2+ (Gorechild woohoo!) with STR 6 had him kill them all over a few turns; and I only lost like 4 zerkers to The Betrayer!
