    How are your bases made? They look really cool.

    I haven't played Sisters of Slaughter, but I find that Witch Aelves in squads of 10 are good with shields, if you're playing them in a squad 20 or more, the double daggers are way better. Doomfire Warlocks are better in groups of 10 IMO, as losing one from a 5 man squad drops their spell to D3 damage. But I guess now that's still better than Arcane Bolt. At the moment I'd rather play more Blood Sisters or Doomfires over Blood Stalkers. The stalkers look good, but I found them rather lacklustre in my games. They're good for sitting on a back ovbjective and still hitting stuff at range, but if you're wanting to use Sisters for that, then I don't think they're worth taking.

    It's on the page that lists the six Prayers of the Khainite Cult.

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't specify that one of the two prayers they use in a turn has to be the battletome prayer. It just says that if they have an extra prayer, they can pray twice. (Though they can't pray twice for the battletome prayer.)

    How are Idoneth Disney? They are aelves with souls tainted by Slaanesh who hide in mist, rip out people's souls, and feed them to their children. They also blind their mounts and magically force them to obey, because animals can tell they're messed up and want nothing to do with them.

    So this happened. Puts a slight damper on armies which rely on Arcane Bolt and Mystic Shield a lot.

    I also killed a Stardrake! I thought it would destroy me, and to be fair, it did kill my Cauldron of Blood in a single turn. But combo of 5 Blood Sisters and an Avatar of Khaine took it out over two turns. He was so focused on trying to kill the Avatar that the little unit of 5 Blood Sisters got away with murder (teehee)! I am definitely getting more of them as my next purchase.

    I'm wondering how important it will be to have more than one command point per turn if you aren't playing Morathi. The Slaughter Queen's Command ability is powerful but very narrow, and is unlikely to be needed on your first turn, whilst Inspiring Presence is now a panic button you don't need to use every turn. Which means that you can parably make use of At the Double or Forward to Victory even without a battalion. So, just weighing up options here. Do I want to put in two units of Lifetakers (requiring me to reduce the size of my Blood Sisters or Warlock unit) to get that +1 command point and extra relic?

    I tried out a squad of 5 yesterday, they are a bit of a jack-of-all-trades kind of unit. They are super fast so make decent objective grabbers, they have a good spell, they can shoot ok, and the rend on their scimitars is really useful. They are a bit fragile though, and their spell goes down to D3 damage with <5 models, so it feels like it's better to play them in a unit of 10 than 5. I also made driders to use as Doomfire Warlocks. I used Grot Spire Rider mounts as their bodies, so they don't look as cool as the ones shown previously. I did elongate their necks and arms slightly to make them look weird and creepy.

    High Elf returning player

    With the reveal that you can use all your heroes command abilities in AoS 2, it might actually make pulling off a High Elf army doable, as you can now have each contingent 'led' by a hero. The problem has been how insular each splinter faction is, maybe now they could act a bit like the 40k Drukhari?

    Fanmade Lion Rangers Battletome

    The story is a great start - remember, battletomes are about more than just the mechanics, they're about the army's look and history and lore too. To get people excited about an army it needs good hooks on multiple levels, because people play AoS for very different reasons to each other. But this Battletone is growing on me more and more as I'm thinking about it. I have panther lancers from Mantic's Kings of War game and the models are...pretty bad actually, but with a bit of greenstuff patching and some good painting they could make decent female lions. I tossed the riders and saddles though, they were awful.

    Well, maybe I better grab the one sitting on the shelf here...

    Damnit...I'm going to end up buying another Blood Coven Box, aren't I? I guess when we eventually play that Apocalypse-sized game the other players here are pushing for, I'll have a lot of Death on Wheels to put down.

    So, been going back and forth between wanting to have a Bloodwrack Medusa as my general for battleline sneks, or a Slaughter Queen for her command ability. And then they said in the new edition we can use the command abilities of all our heroes! #best of both worlds
