    Events USA: Nashcon Age of Sigmar GT

    @David Griffin do you mind if I borrow parts of your players pack for an event I'm organising? If so, may I get a copy of your cards too 😄

    There doesn't seem to be enough love here for the former Empire. Is anybody playing with their Empire army under the Freeguild / Devotee of Sigmar / Ironweld / Collegiate Arcane? To start the ball rolling here is a 2,500pt list I recently used. The list is a traditional Empire list with the addition of a Celestant Prime (acting as Sigmar, using a Voltan model) and Gryph-hound (because I had a spare 40 pts). I've learnt a lot with this list and will be looking to make slight amendments for the next match... Free Guild of the Empire 2500 Leader Type Points Models 1 Celestant Prime (acting as Sigmar) 360 1 2 Battlemage 100 1 3 Freeguild General 100 1 4 5 6 7 8 Battleline 1 Freeguild Guard (swords) 240 30 2 Freeguild Guard (swords) 80 10 3 Freeguild Crossbowmen 200 20 4 Freeguild Archers 100 10 Freeguild Greatswords 480 30 Gryph-hound 40 1 Artillery 1 Cannon 180 1 2 3 4 5 Behemoths 1 Steam Tank 300 1 2 Celestial Hurricanum 320 1 3 4 5

    AoS Coach

    Hi All, After being inspired by so many great YouTuber's, I've thrown my hat into the ring and started a YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQMNLM_JuDNLbvGG0ZUA8ow AoS Coach is focused on short videos that drill into key topics within the game in order to help players go from Good to Great. I've finished recording the first two episodes and will release them over the next 48hrs, starting with a series focused on Tournaments. Keep an eye out tomorrow!

    I’ve started a Hobby Hangouts series to complement the other tactical and get started videos that i’m releasing. The first Hobby Hangout is with Australia’s Premium TO: @klunc / Clint Mallet. We talk all things tournament organising. I hope you can join us in a hobby session, and would love any feedback on the new content.
  5. A recent meta shift with Archaon is including 2 Juggernaunts of Khorne. Archaon with his command ability lets them use their command ability, which in turn will make his Slayer of Kings on 4+'s instead of 6+'s
  6. You! You played on the stream in Game 4?! I've been meaning to reach out to chat. Well done on your performance and congratulations for making it to the final. I'll reach out via DM. I'm seeking your wisdom

    What are the foundations of building an #ageofsigmar list? In this Getting Started ep I look at list building foundations, demo Warscroll Builder, & list design considerations. What's most important to you when building a list?

    Binx’s Hobby Podcast

    This should probably be in the podcast section, however; i'll give it a listen now that it's on iTunes

    Do you like the lore?

    The last 6 months have turned my opinions around, and I'm now finding the Mortal Realms interesting. I'm a detail and visually orientated person and the lack or maps really frustrated me. I felt the world was being viewed too high level and the sandbox was literally just sand! Authors like Josh Reynolds have made a huge difference in putting some toys within the sandbox which I can use. The Mortal Realms video put out with Malign Portents was an amazing addition to the lore. I would like them to churn out more battletomes and add stories for the many unloved armies... it's approaching the 3 year mark now.

    Slaanesh Return - a theory/wish

    Look at the release cycle, we have had a Chaos for every year. 40k release around Nov and then AoS intro around Jan. Slaansh is tied into the Elder storyline, so GW has their ducks all lined up

    I think you need a corpse cart to buff all those direwolves

    I agree with you guys big time on the rules. Nothing frustrates me more on YouTube that MiniWarrGaming having the highest production value and resources behind their channel but they get many rules wrong in every video. @Gaz Taylor cheers for the sub my good man! You raise an interesting point on being impartial. Most people won't want to bite the hand that feeds them, and the privileges of being on the inside is a valuable asset. Is there a risk that they lose trust of their audience if they become a puppet? Yes. Will they gain more fans by being on the inside with a scoop? Yes.

    Really good call out. Most content platforms reward for your bringing external views onto the platform, so leveraging social networks and blogs is a great way to drive traffic. Mate... I do need to call out that TotalBiscuit has 2.2 million subscribers and has been on the platform creating content since ‘06. If I had that sub base, I wouldn’t be asking for them either. I’m not trying to argue with you, just trying to provide logical reasoning on why creators do something that grinds your gears. Hopefully one day you check out my content, I don’t ****** you off, and I get to that 2.2 million subs too :-)

    You're right about the Write of Domination. I tried that at the Masters and moved to the Armour of Meteoric Iron at CanCon. The banner was good and did benefit the crossbowmen, but I realised I needed to protect my Griffon and I only had a few options to do it. I ended up 29th out of 106 at CanCon, and walked away with 3 Major Wins. One of my losses was against an Aetherstrike SCE army in the hands of a very skilled General. I pushed him to the brink but just couldn't handle the sheer output of the large unit of longstrike crossbows and the units jumping around the backboard burning my objectives (Scorched Earth)... and the other against the incredibly buffed Stardrake in Battle For The Pass. The SCE dropped from the sky onto the 3 objectives and the Stardrake with his 1-2+ save, rerolling, bouncing mortal wounds back... I just couldn't respond. I went at him with 2 Griffons and they hurt themselves more than the Drake. I think you might be looking at my Masters list, because I used 2 Griffons at CanCon and definitely found them better for competitive play. They hunt well in packs. If I took Outriders or Pisoliers, in a mission like Knife to the Heart I think I would just hide them until turn 3 and then while everyone is fighting in the middle... do a mad dash and hope for the best. Maybe it needs a unit of 10. The Hurricanum is great but it just takes up too many ally points. In a Mixed Order list you might want to add Skinks as battleline instead of the liberators. They're tough and dirty cheap!

    In a competitive landscape, you'll find people follow true line of sight. This usually means ranks of two, stretched out, with a W style set up to ensure everyone has line of sight. With the amount of models that you're talking about, I think there will be a lot of blockage of that line of sight. If you want to run it, run it. Don't let someone on the internet ruin your grand plans... I could be VERY wrong.

    What do you look for in a youtube channel??

    I appreciate the insight @RuneBrush, @Gaz Taylor and @Caffran101 . I watch a lot of YouTube content and I believe it comes down to the execution and frequency. It's easy for YouTubers to waffle on with long introductions, using Patron to bridge the gap that YouTube ad revenue used to provide ANNNNNNND then ask you to Like/Comment/Subscribe. At the end of the day, most content creators in all mediums are using their platform to serve their community and it's easy to lose sight in the race for content reach. I often have to remind myself that this content is free... I'm not paying for it and it's taking a lot of time to produce. If that means sitting through a sponsor, their recognition of their patron donators or an engagement strategy... i'm also ok with that. If I don't like it, I won't come back

    Out of curiosity, why do you say this?

    What is the deal with Dire Wolves?

    On top of the main points hit around multi wound and cheap, I take them because they are fast and that complements my Mannfred list incredibly well

    Personally, i’m not a fan but it’s your hobby. I’d hate painting, packing/unpacking, and pushing this many models around. I think you’d only win a few scenarios too. You’d struggle in Duality of Death and Knife to the Heart, while Battle for the Pass would compress your army and block your models line of sight (denying you from your max output).

    Hey Mate Anthony Magro here, you cracked the clue and found my true identity. I didn’t place as high as 6th at CanCon but I did take Free People to the Australian Masters and did incredibly well. I’ve been refining that list for a good 6 months and believe it’s one of the strongest builds currently available. Where I struggled at CanCon was dishing out mortal wounds. I got really unlucky with my match ups and even faced a Stormcast army which had a Stardrake on a 2+, re-rolling 1’s, rebounding mortal wounds back to me on something like a 3-4+. I just didn’t have the tools to handle it. The Luminark as an ally gives me the 30” range to snipe any character in the backfield causing me grief (i’m looking at your Gaunt Summoner). My biggest decision in this army, and i’m still undecided, is do you take the Hurricanum or Luminark as an ally? Do I want mortal wounds or survivability. I’ve found my list is strong in all scenarios with the exception of Knife to the Heart. I haven’t been able to pull a Major Victory off with Free People yet, just Minors for days. Maybe the list could be better by swapping the Demigryphs out with Outriders/Pistoliers?! If I built an alternative list, it would be around the inclusion of a Hurricanum.

    What do you look for in a youtube channel??

    Hey Aaron, i’m looking forward to seeing what content you eventually produce for YouTube. I’m 8ish weeks into my channel: AoS Coach; Why do I subscribe to content creators? They are interesting, they can articulate their message effectively, passionate, and have personality. The challenge as a content creator is that there is a significant cost in producing high quality content, however; it’ll be a while before you even return a single $1 back. If you enter the bat rep scene, you need to stand out from the pack. Multi cameras, know you rules, have well painted armies, and edited so i’m not just watching someone hit record on their camera.
  23. I’m often planning to lose any priority roll, and because I’m defensively prepared... I find myself giving away the turn more often enough. I’ve never built an army to win the drop. I’m always asking myself “what’s the worst my opponent can do in any situation and what is my best response”. I also play the long game so I don’t need to worry about getting into combat in turn one either.

    Scatter Terrain?

    A quick eBay search will highlight a bunch of great scatter terrain pieces. That’s usually where I get mine from.

    Who Likes Initiative rolls?

    I love the priority mechanic, and would prefer if we rolled it on Turn 1 as well (first to deploy gets +1 to their roll instead). While I enjoyed WHFB it became predictable at times. This shakes games up and can easily swing the balance of power with a single double turn.
