  1. Melee Combat and Inches

    Is 25 mm the top of the bottom of the bases? Remember the bases are slightly flared so the bottom rim of the base is a bit bigger than the top of the base.
  2. GH2017 - Beastclaw Raiders Review & Discussion

    Stonehorn - If the Thundertusk has got into combat then something wrong has happened. Reasoning - the whole point of the thundertusk is its breath attack, which quickly drops down in damage when the tusk takes wounds. therefore avoid combat. Also, the Frostlord has a nifty attack with his frost spear, so you want to get him into combat. The stonehorns superior movement (as well as the run and charge mechanic), along with its (albeit heavily nerfed) survivability, means you want your frostlord to be riding this beasty.
  3. The EotG is the only model in the entirety of AoS with a rule that allows you to score multiple times in your turn. It is not comparable to the idea that "other armies are strong in other areas". It was a warscroll that was written before scoring points in a turn was even a thing. It just needs to be FAQ updated by GW.
  4. Good job that the BCR army was designed to lots of cheap small units .... oh wait.
  5. Some questions: Have you tried the new battalions? What are your thoughts on them? Do you think we will see any Ironjawz releases? Do you think Ironjawz should have their own ranged unit? Or has the allies option negated this? Do you think Ironjawz new Ironjawz (with their own item, and the points reductions) are better than old Ironjawz (cheaper battalions, Old Rampaging destruction, battle brew)? Generic Destruction questions: Do you think all the nerfs to destruction (mixed destruction in particular) were entirely justified. Do you think we will see more Destruction lists at tournaments soon? Are people trying to work it out lists? Or is Destruction the new death?
  6. Army Paint Schemes for rules

    Very late to the party, and this point has probably been made. In 40k there are the very many successor chapters that dont conform to their "parent" chapter. This gives people the scope to come up with their own paint scheme and back story but say "oh these guys are a successor chapter to the White scars" (despite being purple). They are still able to use the white scars special abilities. However, having someone tell you that you must paint your army in a very specific way to get a bonus is totally different and quite frankly is absurd. It penalises creativity and trying something different to the usual.
  7. Events UK: FaceHammer Grand Tournament 2 (30sep-1Oct)

    Hi Terry, I'm going to have to cancel my Facehammer place due to childcare. Hope you are able to find a replacement. Cheers
  8. Is kunnin ruk + huskard spam dead?

    I think he meant stonehorns. Anyway. The answer is yes. Stonehorns were heavily nerfed with their updated half weapon damage rules. The list was universally hated and not fun to play against so good job it's gone now.
  9. Top Tier Units Pre and Post GHB2017

    Not a unit, but something that was overpowered: Battlebrew. Is now a one use artefact. Gives +1 to hit and wound. At the end of the turn user takes D6 mortal wounds.
  10. GH2017 - Beastclaw Raiders Review & Discussion

    Its a strong artefact. Think I would get worried about using it at "the best time". *Removed costs as per forum rules* There is now no difference between Stonehorns and thundertusks. Looking at the leaked points it is possible to take 3(!!!!!) Frostlords and a Beastrider Or 4 Huskards and then have 120 points left over for something else.
  11. GH2017 - Beastclaw Raiders Review & Discussion

    The book hasnt come out yet, but I am already starting to throw down some theoretical lists out on paper. My first draft: Frostlord on Stonehorn (with a magical item - maybe Blade of Frost? Open to suggestions here). Hunter (General) - Famed hunter 2 Huskards on thundertusks 2 x 2 Frost sabres (battleline due to Hunter general) Unit of Mournfang 6 Ironguts (allies) Comes in at 2000 points. Any comments welcome
  12. Lets chat: Beastclaw Raiders

    No battleline for yhettees, sabres or mournfang anymore? whats going on there?
  13. Rogue Idol back

    Forge World are bringing back the Rogue Idol model, and with it what appears to be a new warscroll: https://www.forgeworld.co.uk/resources/PDF/Downloads/Rogue-Idol.pdf By the looks of it, the points cost has been reduced by 80 points to 400 points (perfect as an alliance?) - but this has come at a nerf to the warscroll. The rogue idol can no longer run and charge. And now makes less attacks with its "stompin' feet". There are some buffs: When you charge you can reroll the hit rolls of the fists. The "Livin' Idol" buff now affects KEYWORDS "Orruks" and "Grots", rather than "Greenskins" on the previous scroll. My opinion is that the removal of the "run and charge" mechanic is not great - especially for a model whose base run speed is based off a dice roll. Open up to debate - Would you use this in your army?
  14. Q: Pre-Battle Discussion w/ Opponent

    If its on the warscroll / in the battletome and someone asks you about it then tell them - it just saves time. I do also think its good gamesmanship to explain auras that buff / debuff your opponents army. I felt a little stung in a previous game where my opponent didnt tell me (likely that he forgot as he was a really nice guy) that wrathmongers also increase your own models attacks by 1. As I havent played with Khorne this was something that I wasnt aware of - or even something that I knew to ask about. The irritating question is when someone points at a unit and asks "is it any good?", I usually show them the warscroll and let them make their own minds up.
  15. Are you "competitive"?

    Surely everyone playing this game is "competitive" to some degree. And I dont mean that everyone is speed painting Kunnin rukks and Skyfires. I just mean that every person you meet who plays this game wants to do well.
