  • Last week has been quite the nightmare, falling ill and then immediately after recovering getting some long shifts, but soon enough I'll be able to get back to writing and doing stuff here. In the meantime, a picture of my Doomlord, Argus, commissioned from Dm3_inks while at the ETC (Check out his facebook here: facebook.com/Dm3_inks-1466088730175195/) 5y7vDJO.png

  • Hmm, challenge accepted. Lets see if I even manage to scrounge up the time to play in a tourney before the update, hah.

    People raised hell about Yannics lego army and called to get him banned from the ETC for it, and it actually had traction. How well do you think literal match fixing will be received? And it's not even that I'm particularly troubled by, it's the admittance to it, when you could just as well say you're sick and can't play or something, and save yourself the trouble.

    Quote from Orion: “In the team event I only played 4 games since I forfeited the last two to help Team Spain in the decisive rounds vs Poland and Germany ” Okay, I'm curious - WHY would you publicly admit this?

    Because it wasn't actually fun.

  • @Adaephon_Delat "Nobody expects the Inquisition:0-1 per army. All model parts in the unit gain Vanguard" Well, there's a familiar rule right there...

  • If you have an unit that relies on doing a lot of wounds, and can get it re-rolls to wound, getting them those re-rolls is ALWAYS good.

  • Quote from Happy Aspid: “Funny thing comes when your opponent kills last forsworn, but fails to break Doomlord. Suddenly your damage become insane, while opponent realises what a mistake he did. ” Oh lord, that's an amazing feeling when it happens. Had a match where the Doomlord ended up alone in a fight with a block of those Dread Elf gals with Poison, and raptor chariots on both flanks, completely blocking anyone from interfering and killed them all in three rounds. none-of-you-seem-to-underst…

    I'm more surprised by the absence of obsidian rock, quite a nice thing to have when there's lot of snipes around.

    Thank you for this SCIENCE(!), @Tyranno. I feel blessed by this knowledge. Although... Quote from Tyranno: “ The Tyrannosaurus Rex possess the strongest jaws in the animal kingdom. Not just because of raw size; it's still in the upper echelons in terms of bite-force even with all animals scaled to the same size. ” The very first line gave me Bee Movie script meme flashbacks. It reads really similarly...

    Because he built that list using options that are going to see very little play, or no play at all, in ETC. Cosmology, for example, seems to be completely absent? Those nerfs to it way back then really killed that Path.

    Quote from yrtomin: “Oh right, thought you were talking about wdg only. ” Ah, yeah. I didn't realize @Folomo was talking about the Chosen Lord, I thought he was speaking of the Carnosaur. But don't mind me, I just like to ramble nonsensically at times. And I don't really like the Portent Lord either, but if I'm to backstab my fellow Pharaohs, I must at least give them the courtesy of doing it properly. And I'm curious of the SCIENCE(!) @Tyranno

    An item that protects a monster from two high-powered threats to monsters, heavy shooting and alchemy (Flaming in general). UD doesn't care about either of course, but I was musing in a general sense. Turns the Carnosaur from a great monster to the best in the game, par none. Perhaps fitting for a monster that's essentially Tyrannosaurus Rex, with an emphasis on the Rex.

    It's one of the most annoying models in the entire game, mainly due to Starfall Shard. Actually, the more I think about it the more I realize that all of the top-picked armies in ETC have good multiwound damage, which the Sha nearly ignores. Food for thought, really.

    The Miser still probably wins out on defense, but like Nic says, that's basically all it does in combat. Being a Wizard is great, of course. The Sha packs smaller defensive ability but has way better offensive ability, the Godslayer is no joke. It's useful against a lot of things, but most notably in my opinion - In the current meta, UD's worst match-up is likely WDG, and one of the biggest reasons for that is the Burning Portent which chews through the best units UD has pretty quickly. The Phar…

  • Never have I seen a prelate model that looks that angry.

  • Well, it IS to be expected that the WDG plays would end up in mirror matches occasionally. Teleport hopscotch!

  • Quote from Clangeddin Silverbeard: “You really think CL burning blade lord is mandatory? He seems expensive to me. I mean: ” Mandatory for what, that must be specified. It's not mandatory at all, and looking at WDG singles tournaments the pick rate of BP isn't even out of order, something like 30% of lists take it, and being the mega-weapon of the book, that's perfectly in line with the expected pick ratio. It's a weapon that's largely neutered by a 20p item and thus always a high risk to begin …

  • UD, OK and DL were all considered especially high threats, and all often pack multiwound models. SE tree armies, BH, other WDG to a lesser extent, but it was assumed that those would pack MI units as well...There's very few armies that don't pack threatening units that the Portent doesn't bite into, right now. So Portent feels like an obvious pick, even I had to take it even though I didn't even want to! The value is just too high in this meta. In a way, it's a crutch which is a shame. But the n…
