  • Maybe wait a little bit before solidifying your impression on the big boys, perhaps they're getting a little help rules-wise pretty soon I think the new Scourge is really useful, as long as you leverage what he does alongside the rest of your army. What the Scourge will do is go into a unit or monster, take 3/4 wounds himself, but kill the thing over 2-ish turns. He will reliably do this. And usually the 2nd big combat he gets into, his dies, and sometimes get to inflict his damage. But if you l…

  • Out of curiosity, what would opinions be on the Blade Dancer kindred being turned into a MotcT-like upgrade? Porting the MotcT upgrade across, would you pay 150pts to upgrade a chief w/ a 6+ aegis, Dances of Cenryn, Fearless, give his unit swift-stride and being a Witchraft adept? Or would you prefer the Blade Dancer upgrade and the Witchraft upgrade to be kept separate, in order to keep our cheap Blade Dancer BSB's?

  • Things I want in the LAB: More forest spirit options, that aren’t big trees. Sprite swarms. Elite Dryads with Ambush. Differentiate between Pathfinders and Sentinels into peerless scouts and peerless snipers. I don’t care which is which. A forest spirit kindred, that allows elf characters to join dryads. Or optional general only upgrades for the Matriarch. Dryad generals are soo boring rn. Separate Blade Dancers and Shapeshifters into their own slots. Fix the Unicorn. 6” +1 MR would do. Finally,…

  • Can I make a request for a Dwarf list? Interested to see what you would do with them, considering your crusade as an Infernal Dwarf. I've been playing about with converting your 3 blocks + bits'n'bobs over to Dwarves, but it didn't feel right without the Infernal Engine to road block things and Grudgebusters don't really do the same thing, and the lack of offensive magic means it's not easy to pick up points. What would your take be on a list that would interest you? Trying to avoid rps lists li…

  • Quote from 20phoenix: “Its not the price that stops me taking Dorac - it's the snipe protection you get from taking aegis save instead ” You can get Snipe protection in more ways than just aegis. 2x Aether icon is 20pts, obsidian rock is 25pts. It's 45pts for MR4. Not suggesting you have to go this overboard, but you certainly can and it costs you less than a 5+ aegis. If Sniping is an issue in your meta then between malady's, fountain of youth and mr there are several ways to mitigate them.

  • @ferny I do quite like them! And I think I'd like to run them in a very similar way to @Firthunands91, as a second dwarf anvil in a list that uses up core points to take Marksmen. Spear warriors are fantastic, but in an ideal world need both rune support and hatred support to really shine. So that means you rune 2 melee blocks in core, or 1 core block/1 elite block, or you waste the rune smiths +1 AP and risk his low range (12'') by bunkering him in a non-melee unit. And assuming that I'm bringi…

  • Neither. You would raise 3 models to the unit, up the size of the original unit in your army list. I.e if 3 or more models were dead, you’d raise 3 of them back. If only 2 or 1 was back, you’d only raise 2 or 1. If you where in range of the attributes you’d get to raise another! Druidism is very good for keeping expensive knight units at fighting capacity.

    The best thing that can be done to support the incremental balance changes is quite simply to use what you enjoy and to not use what you don't/think isn't priced right. And report your games/go to tournaments! The new process is data driven, and rebalanced at least once a year but they need data to go on! If you think Gremlins are too expensive right now, play games without them, and if many people aren't using them, they'll come down in price. For my part, there are some unit set ups I can''t p…

  • Dark pulpit Sentinel with Guiding mirrored scales, unnatural roots, exalted champion. evocation Omen with Guiding mirrored scales, unnatural roots and bronzed back bone. Thaumaturgy 2x20 Lemures with full command and venon sacs. The rest of the list has jumped about a bit depending on meta, but this core is almost 3000pts of core and characters. However the point is that this list sits safe with 2 units that are very hard to break through, and I cast both evo snipes and the Thaumaturgy snipe eve…

    HI friends Just calling in to our most active thread to say I'm pitching in as a new DL ACS! I'm looking forward to working with this community as the book finalises into Gold and we tease out the full potential from a stable book. Feel free to contact me if needed, I might not know who to ask but I can certainly find out. Back to it chaps, the best manifestation choices aren't going to debate themselves!

    @JordanBladen I don't want to name names, but I will say I thought this players Pyromancy Cautl and poison Skinks where the worst a Daemon could face. Now he's jumped ship it somehow seems worse! @AlexCat I definitely think the Gremlins, Harvesters and Thaumaturgy are the way to go. This is the sort of list that would jump out at me at the moment. (Hidden Content) Sentinel in big lemures, harvester in smaller one. Imps taking shots (I really do think they'll be worth it in this match up). Gremli…

    Ok brain boxes, who's up for helping me figure out a match up I'm thinking I'll have a hard time with? HBE: Gun-line, triple Sea Guard Reapers, big unit of Queens Guard, either Sea Guard or Spearmen core, potentially either 2x6 Rhymas or a Lion Guard block, Queens companion Spear Lord, MocT Bow of Elu BSB and a Wizard Master (usually pyro). The amount of small arms fire this puts out is terrifying. Any of our Resilience 3 or 4 models would likely be stripped to the bone excessively fast. While t…

    @AlexCat I Like that Harbinger build. It's pretty comparable to a flying Glory with Hooves, but the Harbinger has more static attacks, poison, and vanguard. But looses out on some AP, in game mobility when marching and some of the Glories weirdness (challanges, Ws/Ds). It's something I'd like to try out, considering I've been really enjoying flying glories. Great spot. Not to mention the fact all of the manifestations also affect the mount making it actually decent.

    I would argue that Sylvan Elves have the most proficient elf lords in combat by a fair margin when considering the Wild Hunter. Yes he has draw backs in limited armour save and being mounted and frenzy, but if we’re talking about pure damage potential, that elk lord does pretty much the most damage of any single model in the entire game on the charge, at agility 10. Using his Black Stag and a Lance plus weapon of choice (I like blessed inscriptions) I don’t think any other single model, and cert…

    I think if the conclave options where available to everyone, they'd be taken. A specific example is in a strigoi double Count list I'd 100% consider a Hexwraith conclave, since I'd have access to Awaken the Beast + Perception of strength. I'm almost considering a unit of Hexwraiths in my Strigoi list now, since Varks are more expensive. A unit of 10 Hunters is almost a straight swap for a Vark! I'd also consider a Wraith unit conclave simply to include it's own Raven's Wing. Or Ravens Wing in a …

    Was having a discussion today about blood ties, and if the blood ties restriction was removed how would this affect lists. I'm of the opinion that the blood ties mechanic is nothing but restrictive, and they don't do anything to actually open up new styles of lists. For some units Blood Ties open up new ways to be played, in the case of Ghouls and Vamp Knights, others aren't taken due to not being considered useful (Coach) while others are considered essential for a unit to be played (Court). Co…

    I enjoyed Blazing Glories at 320. I thought Blazing Glories where good at 300. At 290 Blazing Glories are absolutely amazing. 300pts for Cloven Hoof Blazing Glory is such a great unit, AP5, D3+1 impacts, great stats. Utility in being stubborn. 350pts for a Flying Blazing Glory! 720pts for 2 Flying Blazing Glories with Impact hits! Now that is something I want to test out. That gives you 855pts to fit in a kitted out Scourge, which is fully doable. 2 Flying glories, Cloven Hooves. 720pts. 1 Scour…

    Quote from Snarkhunter: “Quote from Alexwellace: “This. The effect on chieftains is essentially that the Heroes Heart build has gotten 15pts more expensive, while the Hunter's Honour build has stayed the same. What was initially two competing builds with no clear winner, now has a clear winner. I don't really think this is justified. However at least we can now use Titanic Might, Horn of the Hunt and Aether Icon. Other than that, cheaper Huntsmen units are probably worth a try in larger units, s…
