  1. Ever since Legions came out I've been playing deathly invocation and invigorating aura as: you restore d3 models to a unit if it already is at full health (single wound and multi wound models). Recently I was told that I had been playing it wrong and that the roll tells me how many "wounds" I can restore e.g. I roll a 6 on a d3 so I can restore 1 model with up to 3 wounds. So a 1 or 2 roll does nothing for multi wound models and spirit hosts can only be regenerated back with a 5 or 6. Am I getting this right?

    Who´s better option now: VLoZB or Vhordrai?

    It definitely works for the dragon aswell. It's very specific Command traits and artifacts don't affect mounts, everything else does

    Who´s better option now: VLoZB or Vhordrai?

    I've used the VLoZD a lot and he can be very choppy when you use his command ability to reroll all hits on himself, with out it he flops about half the time in combat (I don't run numbers, I just go by what I've played). He has minimal rend and a minus 1 to hit (which nearly every army has access to) pretty much negates the dragon attacks. The breath attack is nice with rend 3 but it's d6 damage while vhordrais breath attack is a flat 6 mortal wounds. Rend 3 is nice but with Idoneth coming out and storm cast 2up rerolling 1 armor saves mortal wounds are essential. They both have the exact same defensive capabilities (which is great bc they're tanks) so there is no compromise there. I also don't run LoB bc it doesn't seem very competitive to me, perhaps in fun lists. The out flanking in LoN is dope. So is the +1 to cast in LoS. I don't have nagash so haven't tried the 1st cohort.

    I take vhordrai every time but I also don't run LoB or run him as the general. The 6 mortals from the breath attack is awsome, so is the - 2 rend on the Lance and his +1 to hit and wound on all the attacks is great. He is a mortal wound/rend hammer that death lists need, the VLoZD is never a reliable damage dealer for me. I'll pay the 40pts extra so I can be assured that vhordrai will do what I always want the VLoZD to do(but usually doesn't)

    Optimizing Lords of Sacrament

    Don't forget that in a pinch Arkhan can use vhordrais signature spell for +1 to hit and wound making him much scarier in combat.

Squeezed in some hex wraiths bc they’re so good on paper but I’ve never actually play tested them in 2 years of playing death.

    Next Death Battletome

    Do you have any information that your basing this on or just your opinion?

    Blood Knights - No Models nor substitutes?

    The black riders from the dark elf lime seem like fine substitutes. The blood knights in Josh Reynolds new book eigth lemantations describes blood knights like the black riders. Head swaps and color scheme will go a long way aswell

    Summoning

    Sorry if this has been answered already or is obvious but do summoned units get the 6 up death save? I know allies don't.
  10. Not sure if anyone has said this yet but will you be able to ally in your battleline? Example, if I'm running FEC alliance can I use my zombies as ally and full fill my battleline requirements?

    Wight king infernal standard

    Does he ever make his points back or nah? I think he'd be good for my skellies and zombies but I can always take a liche priest instead or summon something in...
  12. This thread got really ridiculous fast lol, never have I heard so much fear for SKELETONS! Most people are complaining about the POTENTIAL of hard lists that will run a million skeletons in a competitive tournament that most people will never attend. If theres a guy running some crazy unfun list at your club/store TELL Him. Be a real person and not just a internet complainer.
  13. Skeletons are slow and die in droves to battle shock. Youre making them out to be some over powered unit which they aren't. People need to get better if they're losing over and over again to the same thing. Everyone over emphasizes lists and units. In my experience AoS is about how good a player is with thier army.
  14. I'm local so I'm definitely going. I am wondering how it stacks up in popularity against LVO and adepticon? Are lots of people traveling? Will all the famous Americans be there and maybe some famous hobbyist from across the pond? Will this he the most competitive US tournament yet? I'm actually just curious bc it's really cool to have tournament like this in my backyard.

    Lets Chat: Flesh Eater Courts

    I like one crazy block, there's PLENTY of things that can off a six man block in 1 round of combat or a double turn. I stopped using horrors for skellies bc they were more cost efficient (used for the same purpose, heavy damage output but no rend) but they can get battle shocked off very easily where as horrors cannot.

    Lets Chat: Flesh Eater Courts

    Wayniac, I remember reading a lot of complaints from you about FEC in your local meta. Has that since changed? I started with FEC but have since gone death GA, mainly bc of the same complaints a lot of people have with them. I'm gonna go back, probably buy the skirmish box wich would give me a nice 40 ghoul unit, 12 horrors, varghulf and haunter courtier. Wish I had built the terrorghiest now instead of the zombie dragon tho

    Post nerf Tomb Kings and the rest of GA: Death

    So Crypt flayers don't lose thier mortal wound output to - 1 hit modifier? Just realized it doesn't say "6 or more"

    Vampire Lord on Abyssal Terror: changed points

    If I were you I'd play the ghb points until ghb2 comes out

    Vampire Lord on Abyssal Terror: changed points

    Actually when i 1st got the app Setra and necro knights were the "demo points" (460 and 240). They have since been changed back to 360 and 160 on the azyr. I'm guessing not enough people have sent the app team an email about the VLoAT points. We are the least played faction after all lol. There have been have day to day changes in the app so lets all send em an email and see what happens.

    ways to deal with gunlines?

    @Gauchedo you screen your rukk? And if u do does that inhibit your 18 inch range? I'm curious bc several of my friends have just switched over to Bonesplittaz, one magic heavy, 1 kunnin ruk heavy
  21. Please post a pictur

    Does anyone use the Mortarchs?

    I 2nd Arkhan, I throw vanhels on him with righteous smiting and he has the movement to strike anywhere and isn't a huge point sink when he dies. He also guarantees that my spells go off!
  23. I faced a Bonesplittaz army recently that could pile in and attack in the hero phase. My question is whether the unit piling in and attacking has to be within 3 inches of an enemy unit or can they simply move 3 inches and use thier weapons reach to hit something. Their big stabbaz have a 3 inch weapon range so do they effectively have a 6 inch threat bubble?

    Hero phase piling in attacking

    I know thier teef ruk allows them to pile in 6" but it was the wurgog prophets command ability that allowed them to do this. Its very clear that in the combat phase you cannot pile in unless an enemy unit is within 3 ". Logic would say this would hold true to piling In in the hero phase aswell
