  1. If you're looking for AoS in London, then head down to the South London Legion any Wednesday. This week will be our dedicated AoS club night and there are a whole bunch of games taking place: James vs Tom Alex v Alex Alex v Hugh Hugh v Nico (I'm preparing for Heat 3). John v Ed (the entire Skirmish campaign) Ben Murphy v Leo Rob Craig Ben Raven @Leonardas @Bowlzee There will also be the usual mixture of 2,000 point games going on too. If you have a smaller force, then someone should be happy to give you an introductory or demo game as well. There might even be some 40K practice games going on: #dubious. Send me a message on the forum or post below and I can add you to our AoS WhatsApp chatroom. You can find us here: Croydon Conference Centre 5-9 Surrey Street Croydon Surrey CR0 1RG @sthlondonlegion
  2. I've seen an Exalted Deathbringer impale Kairos 12 times in a row with his spear once, so having the Hail Mary in the back pocket is no bad thing.
  3. You mean an undercosted, reliable Mystic Shield . The other spells are for narrative games or Hail Mary passes. I agree that they might keep Rampaging Destroyers and add traits and artefacts specific to Ironjawz. Similarly Nighthaunt might keep the ward save and have added traits and artefacts.
  4. All I meant was that if you have a set of 6 artefacts or 6 traits, it's very difficult to balance them against each other. I'm very excited about the GH v2.0 - especially for Fyreslayers and Seraphon, where the only way is up over the existing Order Traits.
  5. I don't think this is true. They were pro-balance in the sense that Death and Destruction (with the smallest selection of units) had the better Command Traits and Artefacts; and Order had garbage command traits to match their overpowered Stormcast 1.0 alpha strike and Hurricanum funlines. Trying to make all 6 of the choices equally good is a tall order if that's what you mean - you're almost inevitably going to be picking one out of the top two for most armies.
  6. I don't agree. The shooting focussed meta is a result of specific units being overpowered. It's not like people are using Dispossessed and batteries of Cannons or lots of Wanderer lists. Kunning Rukk would be fixed instantly if the unit size was reduced to 30 from the absurd 40 (80 wounds) and if the Arrer Boyz cost 120 for 10. Skyfires need a unit cap at 6 and a cost increase to 200.
  7. I'm surprised that there isn't more in the list. Is it a unit of 12 Riggers? Or does Clown Car include 20 Thunderers too?
  8. What was the list?
  9. Here's a painting update on my Kairos/LoC:
  10. While I've not been pumping out painted armies like I did last year, I did manage to convert and paint up my Kairos/Loc: The first conversion was attaching the flames from an Exalted Flamer to his outstretched paw for some Pink Fire action. The second conversion was building a set of 5 disks which would constitute a giant clock for Kairos to perch upon and having this clock suspended above a pool of magic water emerging from the lava fields of Chamon. I used spare bits from the exalted chariots to create the framework of 4 disks. I created the water effect by following @Vincent Venturella 's technique for bright ocean water. I tried to use Vince's technique to make metallics pop like NMM, which showed some progress. The final element was using an actual bronze clock face and using the spare sword as the hand of the clock. Guess what time it is?
  11. No. Just don't do it. The shooting is meh (4+ to hit, no rend) and short ranged at that. Also its shooting is better split up at multiple targets as each model can generate D3 mortal wounds on multiple units.
  12. That cloak doesn't need LoS as it's not an attack and it doesn't say pick "visible" units.
  13. Objective based Battleplans.
  14. They are abysmal. You need 6 Exalted Flamers or Chariots for the Battalion - it's hopeless. They are so squishy and don't do enough damage for the cost.
  15. Here you go: (1 Artefact and 1 Endrinwork) x (1 + Number of Battalions)
