2+ ward save vs. all magical attacks for the unit and all dragons within 12 inches are stubborn. It allows a HE deathstar with an orbiting dragon that is rather tough to handle. Moreover, its obviously a nightmare for Demon armies to face.

2+ ward against all magical attacks and spells.

Doesn't do much against trolls!

I am actually rather surprised at comments like the above and similar ones - the new HE list looks insanely good to me.

Core Helms & Light Cav / cost reductions on infantry / S4 BS5 magic, flaming, AP no move pen or ss pen archers for 14 pts(?!!) / units of chariots / units of eagles / great items / extra flyers that are actually good / a fantastic spell lore...

I realize I don't play this game anymore, but it looks like everything I could ever ask for to make the most obnoxious warhammer army ever.

The banner is certainly an OTT little FU DEMONS nugget, but shit, I wouldn't need it.

Imagine if Aenearion had the Banner of the World Dragon...he wouldn't have been scratched by the four greater demons and could have shut the down the chaos gate by himself.

I tend to agree with Andy, the army may not be top of the pile, but I think it should reasonably be top five, if not slightly higher. It has tools to handle just about everything and can make a more effective death star.

I think the HE book is solid for sure. Very potent spell Lore, interesting character selection, and all the units you could ask for. Points will be tight, but that's about it. Hell, even the Phoenix monsters are decent for the cost.
