Hi, I'm starting out with a Stigmatus list, and I have a few questions, some technical and some about the design of the list.

1) If you add hounds and a transport option to a Coven, do you have to buy transports for the hounds? As the hounds are just normal infantry, it seems like you have to, however this seems kind of silly and maybe open to exploiting (buy a hound and get an extra empty transport to run at the front of the formation).

2) Is there a point to Teleport on a Daemon Prince?

3) Is there a reason that daemons are a lot more expensive in a Stigmatus list than in a Black Crusade list? With lower costs and a free daemon per pact in the Black Crusade list, it makes it significantly cheaper. If I wanted 10 daemons and a Greater Daemon, and I had four daemon pacts, in a Stigmatus list this would cost a hefty 275, but only 140 in a Black Crusade list. I see that Stigmatus lists get access to an extra 2D3 summoning in their covens as standard, but is that worth the extra points cost, considering the Stigmatus list has poorer SR and initiative, both of which limit how well you can use daemons.

Thanks,
Jeremy

On the daemons, the reason they are more expensive is that this list was written before the new summoning rules came out in other lists and the AC has decided to leave the stigmatus list alone with new development focusing on the vraks list for traitor guard and the lost and the damned redux for chaos cult

Ah, I’ve just gone and seen the developmental list and that looks way better suited to the type of armies I was forming. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
