Does anyone  have the number on beastclaw-Kunnin Rukk and DoT lists at this event? From the various  podcasts  and videos  it seems  that  they were in abundence.

Thanks  for sharing  !

Yeah, best player made 30th. Very unfortunate. Hopefully Death gets some love soon.

Flipside, 6 out of the top 10 were chaos, hopefully they get some hate.

The villainous Sedge of Warlords infamy showing up with the nice fluffy, balanced list on the podium!

Meanwhile, everybody's still hatin' on stormcasts...

Well 7/20 of those were Stormcast. 

I don't hate Stormcast because they're good, I hate them because they're ugly.

I bought them because I love their looks though... :/ Guess it's the eye of the beholder thing. Painted them all to hallowed knights' scheme. Can't stand the all gold scheme.

I guess the test on the point increases for tomb kings was bit unsuccesful. It seems that no one played them. But I guess that gives also indication :)

Verdict? Tzeentch needs nerf and Death needs buff. Are you reading this GW? Don't let us handing here


*Tzeentch needs balance.

Not sure I agree with that as all three lists has very good shooting but very strong combat elements to it as well. Even if shooting was limited (say in a scenario which has a gale going on), these lists would still be very good.

Anyway, I'm surprised nobody is going on how a certain website forum owner left behind his loaned army and terrain at the venue ;)

What I mean is, sure the skyfires need turning down but so much of the Tzeentch book is competitively worthless. Ergo, balance. Don't just nerf the skyfires, then dot will drop. Also, the top list doesn't use Tzeentch combat.

I think the issue is that skyfires are good at shooting and pretty handy in combat too. If you nerfed their combat ability then combined arms tzeentch lists that take tzaangor or some other combat (tzeentch marked chaos warriors etc) would still be viable. The real problem is being able to take them in a mixed order list and use them as shooting, but then have them go toe to toe with combat units and still do ok.

Most of the armies on the top ten tables were shooting lists, mostly Tzeentch or Kunning Ruks.  Most of the games finished in under an hour.  SCGT was a great AoS tournament from about table twenty downwards.  Above that they all seemed to be playing 40K.

Hi - I can certainly tell you this is not correct. 4th was Seraphon, 8th was Mixed Order shooting - Hurricanum/Hellblasters, and at least two others were Sylvaneth. I don't know for sure any of them were Stormcast.

I think that 10 for 100 are no issue, it's more that after the 20+ they still come at the same price and become significantly better :) 
* It's very difficult to put a price on synergy, except when the unit synergizes with itself ;) 

SCGT does have some nice House-rules however, I hope that a lot of them will be included in Matched Play for the upcomming Generals Handbook. Granted they still might want to do something 'bout dis
