  1. Have you seen the new Chaos Daemons codex for 40k or its previews? If you have, then you know that it's a good time to be a mother-fucking daemon! Daemons have had a number of issues in 8th edition, with a number of changes that really hampered them. As it is, Daemons have become something more of a support force for Chaos Soup, always giving something, but not really standing on their own. If you're looking for me to say that this all changes with the new Daemons Codex, I'm sorry to say, but you'd be mistaken. Oh, stand-alone Daemons are still DEFINITELY going to be a thing, simply because it's fun to do, but they're unlikely to make a big hit on the competitive scene. But, what if I told you that there's a new Relic that not only is very powerful, but also changes one faction from being a one-trick pony into a two-trick pony! Feast your eyes on the new Khorne Hellforged Artifact: So, upon cursory inspection, you probably are seeing something pretty similar to many other things in the game; extra attacks. You may notice one difference, but not quite it's importance. It doesn't trigger on hit-rolls, but rather on wound rolls. Also, unlikely almost everything else you've seen, you probably didn't notice that this doesn't just trigger in the Fight Phase... Yeah, it triggers EVERY TIME. Every. Single. Time. You making attacks in close combat with +1 to wound because of Veterans of the Long War? It triggers. You shooting a Lascannon from a Defiler? It triggers. You firing Overwatch? It triggers. It triggers, it triggers, it triggers! These extra attacks are made with that same weapon, so yes, if your Khorne Obliterators get a to-wound roll of 6, that's going to be an extra shot from them. Take this relic and park it near the Lord of Skulls (which can also be Deep Striked for 2 Command Points like a boss), and all of a sudden you'll be doing absolutely insane amounts of damage. So enjoy your new shooty Khorne lists! This may not be insanely good, but it's a powerful extra thing to include for something that Khorne needs to strength in anyways.
