  1. I think it could be a serious issue for models on 32+mm bases attacking the large models that have this ability to pluck out a specific model(I think there are a couple others) when elite models only have one rank to attack with. While I like the thought behind the rule, killing the disconnected daisy chain, this is going to be one of those super gamey side affects I don't like. I think adopting the 40k 2" coherency would solve the issue for the most part awhile not making coherency stretching shenanigans too bad.

    Yeah, I was thinking this might be the origin story for the newly expanded Nighthaunt.

    GMG's review of the Soulwars box mentions the problem with weird unit counts.

    Ah, I didn't notice that(just glanced at the stats), so yeah compared to base skeletons or zombies they may be better by base warsscroll, especially for 10. I haven't see much with skeletons, so I don't know how they get better. Zombies are probably better if you play them as a zombie army with max units, corpse carts and the whole nine yards, but there maybe a Nighthaunt unit hero that super buffs them too. I'm still going to use them as my LoN battleline because I don't play a real zombie list(and don't want to) and 3 min units of zombies just suck and are literally a battleline tax.

    The chainrasp bravery is worse (6 instead of 10), and I think the new inspiring presence could hurt horde armies(which these are going to be good in hordes, it's in the name). While you've got more versatility to use it only when you need it, not being able to make it last for the next hero phase could be painful, especially if you get double turned(don't forget command points generate in your hero phase).

    As an addemdum to this I think this list is in the starter box, so it makes all the starter box stuff LoN legal. Don't know if they'll continue that going forward with other new stuff. It would be weird to have Nighthaunt as an ally if that were the case(unless allies were able to use allegiance abilities or something). Another correction from my earlier post the reported points where I said that the weird size units fit the points, I actually had the Grimghast reapers and glaivewraith stalkers mixed up with their point sizes and what's coming in the starter. The reapers come are groups of 10 for points, but 4 in the box(I counted 5 as an okay starter size) and the stalkers are 4 for points and 5 in the box. Now I'm almost hoping the leaked GHB page is an elaborate fake(but I don't think it is). I guess it wouldn't be GW if they didn't get nearly everything right and then make one boneheaded move that left everyone scratching their heads.

    In the spoiled points page, they were unconditional battleline, unlike the Hexwraiths, Sprithosts and one more new one that are Nighthaunt only.

    Looks like my assumption was wrong about allies being the only way to get the new Nighthaunt stuff in Legions of Nagash. There is a small limited list(because Nighthaunt is getting lots of new stuff) that works in the LoN. They are as follows: Chainrasp Horde Glaivewraith Stalker Grimghast Reaper Guardian of Souls Knight of Shroud on Steed Lord Executioner Spirit Torment And with the chainrasp horde being generic battleline, it looks like my LoN army won't be going away for me and I get to drop my Zombie battle line tax for a unit I actually want to bring.

    Watching the miniwargaming review of 2nd ed, they also noticed the contridictory wording and said they actually reached out to GW who confirmed that the first to deploy chooses first turn.

    Your hero phase is your individual hero phase. There are rules that go off in every hero phase, and those are worded as "any hero phase".

    80/280 in the image I saw, which I think is the new GHB. It wouldn't be the first time GW has bad points/warscrolls in the starter set. I think they had the same issue with Dark Imperium and some units have the wrong power levels.

    If I recall, the policy around here was not to post leaked images of books, so I won't post it, but the new Nighthaunt points and death allies has been leaked. Starting with the allies thing, Nighthaunt is now and ally to for all the Legions(and still Soulblight) along side Flesh Eater Courts. So that's probably the true meaning of GW saying you can play your new Nighthaunt stuff in with you Legions of Nagash stuff instead of the new stuff working with in the legions. On to points. Chainrasp horde is 80 points and generic battleline(but probably only good for GA death and not Legions as noted above). Black Coach is up to 280 and a Behemoth now. New warscroll is probably a given. Not going to list all the points, but nothing else changed for points. Hexwraith and Spririthost are still conditional battleline along side the new grimghast reapers. The odd(technically even, which is odd for AoS) unit counts of four in the starter are the real matched play sizes, so 4 grimghast reapers and 4 myrmourn banshees. Lots of batallions, but no too expensive. Span from 80-150 points. 3 Endless spells costing 40. 40, and 60.

    I'm guessing this is so open and narrative play can officially have allies. I wouldn't be surprised if the matched play points add something else.

    The allies change is interesting. I guess that makes it easier to use allies in narrative/open play. In the faction previews, I seem to recall them mentioning at least once that a model that got a price drop would now work as an ally(can't remember which one, and could be imagining it), so I wonder if the points threshold will still be layered on in the matched play rules. I don't know if this: had something similar in the old allies rules just to cover all bases, or if we'll be seeing cross GA allies.

    Despite the extra pages, the rules themselves don't seem to be too terribly expanded. If anything, they're just more clearly explained from the start instead of super compressed and in need of FAQs. One thing that isn't entirely clear is the compulsory combat for units that would have to pile in to fight. The rules say you have to fight within 3", but the pile in rules are still "can" not "must". So if I have a unit with 1" reach that's 2" from the enemy, can I choose them to fight, but then not pile them in? So they "fight" but don't make any attacks? Rewinding to yesterday's news. I'm pretty sure I like the new Mortarch of Grief, but I really don't like the "stock" paint job GW gave her. I'll be painting her up all dark and shadowy like the rest of my Nighthaunt.
