    I have found the shift from stubborn to unbreakable to be an issue. We have a newer guy who latched onto a tzeentch flying DP, reroll ward saves of one, soul feeder, 1+ armor, charmed shield and a sword of something. Very difficult to keep in line .

    It is on the verge of unbeatable, not to mention it has the option of a breath weapon! Makes short work of blocks of saurus as I found out in our last game.

    Considering it costs about the same as a tricked out slaan, I’m forced to believe that they are on a par...

    There has to be a way of dealing with it, Warhammer is like a game of chess where everything has its counter, I just haven’t figured it out yet.

    I believe that is the secret to 8th Edition Warhammer BUT the counter against Daemon Prince is cannons, something we do not have. :(

    Cannons are the ultimate counter to the DP. However, while we do not have an ideal counter such as that, we do have options.

    I think for next game I am going to take my usual slann build and two level 2 skinks with beasts, hope to roll amber spear or a double across both of them and then let rip with 6 dice and hope for irresistible force.

    I will work my way through your list and see what works ;)
