First off; PLEASE NO DISCUSSING MONOGODS VS UNIFIED DEMONS UNLESS IT IS SPECIFICALLY RELEVANT TO THE TOPIC OF THE DISCUSSION!
What I want to dalk about is how the demonic lords and heroes should be implemented, especially greater demons. Greater demons are some of the most powerful beings in the warhammer world and several levels above almost any other "standard" lord type.
So, how should greater demons be implented? They could be restricted in the form of rites(like Slann) or technologies etc, but that would also limit the number of armies you could field which coul be a problem. On the other hand, if greater demons were recruited just like normal lords it might be a problem because they could A; be overpowered compared to other normal lords, or B; be balanced with other normal lords but then being too weak compared to what they should be.
Another issue I was thinking about, is the unique demonic heralds. Now, most people propably want the starting LLs to be greater demons, and we have named greater demons for each of the four gods. If four LLs are enough, then there is no problem, but if more are to be added an issue arises. Having several greater demon LLs of the same god could be boring and too similiar, while adding unique heralds like Skulltaker would be a bit strange, as it puts him on the same level as greater demons. It also creates another strange situation if Skulltaker, Epidemus etc. are lords while normal demonic heralds are heroes.
These are just my thoughts, what do you guys think?
