  1. Are slaughterpriests fair?

    Responding to @Gotrek, I think Slaughterpriests are correctly pointed and balanced. Yes Blood Boil can be scary but it's a 50% success/fail rate and a 16.7% chance they hurt themselves (outside of Gore Pilgrims I mean). And with a 5+ Save, they can die easily in combat or ranged. I also think Gore Pilgrims is balanced as well. "Within the context of Gore Pilgrims" means you are spending a minimum of 670 points for the re-rolling prayers and Bloodsecrator range increase, 770 if you take three. And, as others have pointed out, they must remain within 8" of the Bloodsecrator to maintain the banner increase; So the Slaughterpriests will usually be clumped around the Bloodsecrator. That means there is a 320-420 point clump of very important heroes in your deployment zone (e.g. not scoring in Duality of Death). Your opponent can swarm them easily and take them out in combat or focus them down with ranged. Blood Boil is a 16" threat range which is small compared to the threat range of strong ranged units (Kurnoth hunters 30" + teleport move, Judicators 24"+ 5" move, Skyfires 30"+16" move, etc...). It isn't hard for the Slaughterpriests to get picked off one by one. And, as each one dies, the Bloodsecrator range decreases 8" which lowers the effectiveness of your units that are out grabbing objectives (and makes them vulnerable to battleshock). TLDR; I think 100 points for Slaughterpriests is right, given they are squishy and can also hurt themselves with failed prayers (which happens!). Yes it sucks when you get triple blood boiled but that means you got close enough to let them do it! Take the Slaughterpriests out with ranged first, or swarm them in combat. SIDE NOTE: I know some people take issue with the fact that there is no rule of 1 for Prayers/abilities; and they cite Blood Boil as the main example. In my opinion, there are other abilities that are far more powerful than a 16" range 50% chance to do d6 mortal wounds. For example, the Orruk Warchanter's Frenzy of Violence ability that gives +1 to Hit on a unit; no rolling or anything, it just happens (and it can stack!) A 10 man unit of Brutes hitting on 2's is way scarier to me.
  2. Let's chat : Khorne!

    I believe it can stack. It just says "pick a unit and add 3 inches". It's a similar mechanic to the Ironjawz Warchanter +1 to Hit ability. There is an FAQ that says duplicate spells/abilities can stack unless stated otherwise (pg 6, second column of AoS rules FAQ). An example of otherwise is the FAQ on the Bloodsecrator (pg 2, first column of AoS Chaos FAQ):

    I think he might be meaning a 4+ Save with 4+ spell save from shields?

    Wow, that's quick work man! I think the Azyr app still has issues so you're ahead of the curve. Sent from my SM-N910T using Tapatalk

    Your show has been a great addition to my cast list. Keep up the good work! Sent from my SM-N910T using Tapatalk
  8. Difference in Khorne Battletomes?

    I solely play bloodbound and I highly recommend the new book, for the reasons everyone stated. The way the meta currently is, a pure melee army needs ways to counteract that. The new tome gives you access to things like blood tithe, new battalions and artefacts that give options to do that. Things like longer pile ins and charges/attacks/blood tithe in the hero phase.

  9. Ep 22: AoS Battleshock Bash Recap

    Listened to the narrative portion so far. It sounds like he put a lot of thought into the design and it paid off. Sent from my SM-N910T using Tapatalk
  10. AoS podcasts

    Do you have a particular interest in content? My favorites have changed over time. When I first started, top 3 were Garagehammer, Heelanhammer and Facehammer. Now they're probably Garagehammer, ScrubyAndWells, and Hard6. That's not to say others are bad at all. Sent from my SM-N910T using Tapatalk
  11. AoS podcasts

    It sure feels like it. I think some uk podcasts some like Bravery One might be busy doing/prepping tournaments. Alot just seem to be monthly releases. So once you catch up on all of them, you gotta wait forever it seems. Sent from my SM-N910T using Tapatalk
  12. idea i just had

    Would it be simpler to give every army access to a second wound/mortal wound save? Sent from my SM-N910T using Tapatalk
  13. Ok good, that's what I was hoping it meant. Yeah the old wording basically meant you have to pay 200 points for a hero with the same abilities as the battalion. Weird. Sent from my SM-N910T using Tapatalk

    @SadGlad, thanks for posting! I've been looking for more podcasts so I'm going to check out Zlurpcast and War Council.
  15. @ZephyrExiaBased on the new wording, does that mean I can take Goretide and Mighty Lord of Khorne instead of Korghos Khul?
