I bought all of the Index books which I felt was a good idea and plan only to get the codex books that relate to the forces I actually own, i.e., Space Marines and Chaos Space Marines. Perhaps if a World Eaters codex makes the scene I will go for it.

Regardless, in the Chaos Index you have the CSM forces, the Demon list and the Traitor Knight Titans. Using the keywords, character, chaos and appropriate mark a character (whether CSM or Demon) can summon demonic forces. Since I have World Eaters I was pleased to see that Flesh Hounds have the ability to deny the witch and thus give me some protection from enemy psykers. However, in the CSM Codex they list the Bloodletters, Demonettes, Plaguebeares and Horrors but none of the other lesser demons such as the Flesh Hounds I want to be able to summon.

My feeling is that I could still pay the cost for the Flesh Hounds to attempt to summon them…but would I need to include them as part of a detachment? If the latter, the HQ tax is prohibitive. Which makes it hard to play a fluffy force as Khorne. In which case the Black Legion detachment is the way to go and bring lots of psyker characters with that force to counter the other side's psychic powers.

Daemons do not need to go into a detachment if they are being summoned – you do not even need to decide which daemons they are, simply choosing how to spend those spare points when you summon.

Great flexibility!
