    As great as two attacks with a Star-fated Arrow would be I've got to side with Freejack02. The profile says "once per battle in your shooting phase you can declare that this model will loose a Star-fated Arrow". It then goes on to say that the Venator makes one attack rather than 3. That the SFA can be used only once per game would not be changed by a prayer. You can roll another attack but not regain a use of this once-per-battle ability.

    Pretenders is always nice for the reroll 1s and the extra command trait

    We'll, there's another Becca video up and some cross promotion with Geek and Somethingorother. Makes sense, and I bet having both her and their site work together gets some interest from potential new fans. (Better check this Ian character's geek credentials. He isn't that attractive, so he may be safe...)

    Nothing supports your interpretation. There is no declaration that the altered damage values last any longer than a single attack - in order for your interpretation to work there would have to be. Simply stating you "make another attack" does not override the restrictions of "once per game" or the specific warscroll reading of "makes 1 attack instead of 3, but it causes x damage". Both references are singular. I'll wait till others weigh in before debating it any further, because there's really no point.

    As an aside, the term SJW is only ever used as an insult to a nebulous group of people who are vaguely to the left of the person using the term. Any discussion that someone raises the specter of the SJW is one where you won't find pretty much any factual backing or research, just gut think and an echo chamber somewhere.

    Let's chat : Slaanesh

    Thank you for that. The main reason I go for the Pretenders is indeed the rerolling 1s on daemonettes. With invigorated by pain and allure of Slaanesh, my KoS manages to stay alive a bit longer. Very useful with only 10 wounds on him. Daemonettes supported by a KoS are a delight to play with. Alternating Excess of Violence on KoS or the Daemonettes is good and the despair of my opponents. I have found that Heralds always need to be on steeds to be useful. I have found the masque not to be useful, not on a steed and since I am always taking the fight to the enemy, I dont care if they get closer. But the variant of what you are thinking is my dual list of Slaanesh Host and Slaves of Darkness, a hammer and anvil strategy.
  8. Now that is how to make SCE look impressive. Absolutely beautiful miniatures.
  9. I like them both for blocking charges. Unfortunately they are both easy to dispel. But against a Khorne Horde that can’t remove them after they’ve been put down, or anyone else without wizards, you could lay them both down and block off the center of the table.

    So we want a long answer that can be read in battletome, huh? No problem The wording for SFA tells you that once per game you can change profile of your realmhunter's bow, nothing more, and while you can't directly increase the number of attacks, because the rule tells you to make 1 attack, nothing restricts you from getting an aditional with prayer.

    Let's chat : Maggotkin of Nurgle

    You need two battlelines. For nurgle thats either plaguebearers or blightkings. Could also use marauders and warriors in the slaves to darkness line with a mark of nurgle. GUO is great. Most like the bell and bileblade. I like the sword and flail. But this kit is VERY easy to magnetize so you could buy one kit, put tiny magnets in the two hands (and head I suppose although the head doesnt make a difference in terms of WYSIWYG) and all 6 of the hand options and simply pop one what you want to use that game and take them off for another combination!

    Skinks with Skinks, and more Skinks

    I've also considered this sort of list; I'm just not keen on most of the Saurus models. I think - and I'm hardly speaking as an expert here - the army might be a little fragile. Bastiladons or Stegadons are tough, but dedicated monster hunter units aren't uncommon. Unless it vanishes in the upcoming GHB the Heavenswatch Starhost might be worth looking into; it heals a wound off Monsters every turn and gives rerolls of 1 to hit and wound against a single target your Starseer can see.

    Pretty sure "once per game" stops you.

    Don't see why? Is this meant to be ironic?

    Since the Thunderwave Echelon is going down so much (although Desolators are still a joke), I'm curious to know how the timing on Ruinous Assault actually works. The wording is: "Once per battle, in the combat phase, a Thunderwave Echelon can make a Ruinous Assault. Each unit in the battalion can immediately pile in and attack again, in an order of your choice." So... 1) Does this mean you could use this ability as soon as the combat phase starts, to allow all your battalion units to strike first? And if so, would this then disallow a second activation from them? Or would it be an "extra" activation that could be used before, during, or after the usual order? 2) Can it only be activated after all units in the battalion have activated, because it states "attack again"? 3) Even assuming the most generous interpretations, would it be worth running for one big turn? Stacking charge modifiers/rerolls would help everyone get into combat when needed.

    SFA simply make you change Venator's bow profile, nothing stopping you from using bless weapons and melting opponents face with double SFA

    Let's chat : Slaanesh

    Yeah, I think I'll be going with Seekers. I've previously found pretenders to be the best, but I feel the possible extra 4" move (with the cogs) is going to be really important for getting up in the opponent's face. That said, rerolling 1s is so nice on the daemonettes - I guess I'll just alternate the Chaos Sorcerer Lord's spell for that. Hmm, I wonder how viable taking one side of an opponent's army with most of your army will be. Being so fast, we can have all of our troops attack the weaker side and have the masque half the movement of the other side so it may not reach us (and but a screen in the way just in case of a double turn). You can take slaves marked with Slaanesh in Hosts without needing allies. Anything with the Slaanesh keyword is also part of the Slaanesh allegiance as well as any other allegiance it may belong to.

    Still usable in open and narrative play (shrugs). I would use the stormcast ballista with elven crew

    Let's chat : Slaanesh

    I am still confused about using slaves of darness units with my slaanesh host. Battlescribe only allows them as allies even if they have the keyword Slaanesh. But the Warscroll builder gives me no such problems. So in a Pretender Slaanesh Host, can I use Warriors of Chaos with the Slaanesh keyword as battleline? Can I include a Chaos Lord on Manticore and a Daemon Prince, both with the Slaanesh keyword, in my Heroes?

    They should have gone full 50/50 female/male stormcasts for the sacrosanct chamber. With a female general. The easy to build female stormcast is, in my eyes, one of the best model of the range. She should have been part of the core box.

    The Painting Contract - June 2018

    I deviated from my pledge and started a gorechariot. Here is the beast completed and the chariot at wash stage. Highlights tomorrow and then I start in the crew. I have also based 35 minis so 5 more to on that target.

    I guess it will run up until next week with release of Soul wars, with the conclusion of Nagash’s plan. That was a great journey.
  25. Plaguebearers aren't inflated at all. Nurgle armies are fine WITHOUT free summoning. They place at major tournaments and even dominated the London GT. Nurgle is a top tier army that just got much better. The new meta will be Summoning armies and everyone else.
  26. Winner winner chicken dinner. Armies who can alpha and summon are about to be overtly dominate, armies who can summon shooting units will be pretty good. At the bottom of the summoning pile is Nurgle, pillow fisted and almost zero ranged firepower.
