  1. Let's chat : Blades of Khorne!

    Cleaning the mould lines off the helmets is painful... Getting in between the little spikes. Geez... Such a great kit though. Bit jealous of the full Stampede.
  2. Let's chat : Blades of Khorne!

    Wow, you have the models for that? I've only got 3x3... Just out of interest, any reason why you wouldn't combine some Skullcrushers to have them all inside the battalion (max 7 units)?

    NB: I've never once used Dark Feast haha...
  4. Let's chat : Blades of Khorne!

    By para: 1. Maybe you're right. Maybe it's an oversight, however as it's currently written, I don't think it's unclear or grey at all. The priest's status (alive/dead) relates to the addition to the Attacks characteristic. The Attacks characteristic changes. 2. Pretty straightforward. You just add a token or marker or Ben Curry combat die when they are selected to attack. It's not the same as the Skullreapers, whose bonuses depend on their current unit size (hence the need for a total tally). 3. I disagree that it's grey (rules as written), but I do agree that it may have not been intended thus. Because, let's face it, the majority of battalions are expensive AND mediocre. Having said all that, I'm not so certain that it's really THAT overpowered or abusive, even with 240 Bloodreavers. I mean 3 Letterbombs + Crimson Crown + Killing Frenzy is probably still nastier...

    I don't think there's any ambiguity whatsoever mate. Look at how it's phrased. And then look at how any other BoK attack buff is phrased. But, again, I don't think it's OP. I mean, these are 6+ save Battleline units we're talking about (plus two of our less choppy heroes). And it all goes kaput once the Priest dies. 200pts is almost 30 more dudes... ...but I think it makes Dark Feast worth another look for predominantly Mortals players.

    The Bloodreavers themselves are also very fragile. Hence, it will be very rare that they get beyond +4 attacks, and that may only be with a handful of guys. Too often, I imagine they are vaporised in the role of frontline assaulters.
  7. Let's chat : Blades of Khorne!

    It's a 200pt battalion that hinges on a very fragile dude. I don't even think it's OP. But to me, the wording is very clear: when you select them to attack, you increase their characteristic by 1 (as long as the key character is alive).
  8. Let's chat : Blades of Khorne!

    Just doublechecking you're aware that Dark Feast adds an attack every single time they are selected to attack, right? So the third time you attack with a unit they will be at +3 attacks...
  9. Let's chat : Blades of Khorne!

    I use Bloodreavers in pretty much every list, whether it's 10, 20 or 40. I often use them to wrap the Bloodsecrator himself in deployment, to protect from Turn 1 charges, Seraphon toad-bombs and other weird shenanigans. They are frequently also important late game (or home territory) objective-grabbers for me. If I have an Aspiring Deathbringer and some Blood Tithe, though, I will happily go on the offensive with their effective Movement of 9-10 after Stoking. In my experience, people find a unit of 40 very attractive to shoot at with lots of rubbish/battleline missile troops, and that's really quite fine by me. Better than actively coming after my support characters. They are totally disposable to me, but always useful in some way. It was very cool to note that a guy at CanCon used them in completely different way though: he slapped 3 Bronzed Flesh and a mystic shield on 20 and used them as a cheap but nigh impenetrable anvil!
  10. Finally starting AoS! Looking for advice.

    My $0.02 on Khorne, since you're just starting out: My main army is Blades of Khorne and I love it to bits. Lots of tactical fun to be had with combat, and you get to overwhelm opponents and objectives with powerful melee characters/units and complex networks of buffs and bonuses. I should mention though, that there is very little shooting and no magic inherent to the army (in fact it is anti-magic), so you should consider whether you're OK investing when you will be almost entirely focused on movement and combat. On the upside, we do have very offensive Priests with some ranged ability, and our most brutal Battleline troops (Bloodletters) are very easy and quick to paint. Also, we have access to any Khorne-marked Slaves to Darkness - I mention this because these aren't really depicted in the Blades of Khorne book. *shrinks back into the shadows*
  11. What happened to the FW khorne dragon?

    Hope the rider gets redesigned...
  12. Are Varanguard worth the 300pts in a non-archaon list?

    I think they're fine with Fellspears and a charge. The double pile-in /attack ability is fantastic if you have a good target. They can really wreck stuff. If they charge an identically-costed unit of Stormfiends, they will very likely kill them in 2 phases and walk away with 2-3 guys to go and hassle someone else. As someone implied, they're like cheap junior Chaos Lords that run around in a gang. They kinda just have to do so independently of the rest of your army...

    Stunning. My fave Shar'tor ever. Damn.
  14. Call to glory : Cancon 2018, chaos list's run down.

    Bloody well done mate and, yeah, very cool list. We all pored over them before the tourney. Did you confront any Stardrakes?
  15. How balanced is AoS now?

    Don't listen to this guy! Skarbrand is a kitten. One of his axes does a pitiful 8 dmg... ;-) One of these days I'm gonna pack triple Resanguination and just take the big guy for a walk...
