    Let's Chat: Free Peoples

    So I had put down Free People for a bit and now Im pondering them again. It seems like the sheer number of bodies you can throw into the meat grinder combined with battleshock resistance and good saves makes them pretty solid. What Ive been noticing about a lot of the current tier 1 armies is that they really struggle if they cant put out enough damage to chew up opposing forces. if they hit a big anvil with good saves that doesnt crumble to battleshock they have some serious trouble. I think combining a horde of guard with sword &shield with an indominable general and a luminark is a seriously formidable force for many armies to deal with. And then of course you light them up with handgunners with great companies. Vanguarding out archers seems pretty solid as well. they are a serious speedbump for certain armies like murderhost and ironjawz. Mobility seems to be a problem, however, and Ive been pondering how to address getting across the battlefield against armies like KO that rely on standing back and shooting. what do you all think?

    This is the universal answer for any army that can include a Hurricanum. :-)

    Let's chat Stormcast Eternals

    So I'm just now starting a Stormcast army... I've got a lot of reading to do. 83 pages. yeesh!
  5. So the thread on Bretonia got me thinking about what a mixed Order force might look like. There are so many units that stand so strongly on their own that I feel like an Order All-Star force might be formidable. I'm not that well versed in all of the different factions, so this one is definitely a group effort... Some Starter Thoughts for Contenders: Bretonnian Lord on a Pegasus Grail Knights Trebuchet Phoenix Guard Freeguild Guard with Sword & Shield for battleline (IMHO best order value battleline for min/max) Celestial Hurricanum 2x Cannon w/ Gunsmith Let's add to the list! Who are the Order All-Stars?

    Are Bretonnia even good anymore?

    I think they're really good as a component of a mixed Order force. Lord on Pegasus is STILL awesome, probably my favorite scroll in the game. Grail Knights are still awesome. Trebuchets are fantastic artillery pieces. If you're going to run with an Order All-Star army, I think these guys are definite contenders for the list. I don't think an all-Bretonian force is really viable, but there's no allegiance ability for them, so who cares? Supplement with what you need from other factions throughout Order to make a real beater of a force. It's a serious consideration for me for sure.

    ive got a stockpile waiting for a book. i havr played them in a couple of 1k games and they were fun. banishment coming off of the war alter ia no joke against a chaos army either. really the force ia missing some pieces to be really good. they are in the fluff books, so i think we might see a new release and battle tome for them eventually.

    at 260, is a multi griffon list a possible thing???

    Let's Chat: Free Peoples

    For some reason I thought that this was impacting ALL units, not just heroes. I feel like the intent here is that is should effect everything, but until we get a FAQ it looks like Demigryphs still get their buffs RAW! GHB2017 p 117 "... any command abilities or magical artefacts can only be used to affect attacks made by the hero and have no effect on attacks made by their mount unless specifically stated otherwise"

    Celestial Hurricanum GHB17

    I think it's too expensive now. It basically takes up all of your ally points in a 2000 point army. The opportunity cost of taking it is just huge. The other build of that kit, the Luminark is actually looking really appealing. Bubble out a 6+ ward save, +1 to unbind, big gun that does 6 damage, and the wizard's spell scales up with the unit size of the target, which seems really good in the new meta. And it gives you another 160 points of room for allies in a 2k army.

    Free People Allies

    So what is everyone thinking of running for allies with Free People? There's a serious lack of heroes in the Free People, so I feel like that's an area that could use some supplementing. Do you all think that the Hurricanum is too expensive and takes up too many of our allies points now?

    Well we don't know exactly what's happening with the compendium just yet. I believe we are getting updated points for those in a separate pdf
