    AoS 2 and what it means for Destruction

    Currently I find that destruction will not have much to contribute to the story. The Ironjaws and Beastclaw Raiders had their glory before. Ironjaws were scary but almost always lose to shooty list. Then came the nerf.. So many good list made unusable. The single Fanatics release made awesome control for charge phase and the nerf of it made it disappeared.. Next it was the Stornhorn which also makes shooty list almost guarantee win.. The Bonesplitterz also are weak against shooty list, especially character sniping. With the changes to shooting there are so much that might change.. Melee focused, fast and tanky seems to be our game in pitched battle.. I felt that only the old system of models count with a cap on wounds can make the Ironjaws and Beastclaw top dogs.. Really hope for a Grot battletome.. And seeing some new grot based army win a major tournament.. once.. Somehow it seems that Grots are not suppose to thrive in the Beast Realm.. No matter where they are they are just annoyance and never a threat.. So maybe just maybe they can consider making them threatening.. But they had been building that hype with the Skaven.. Numbers uncountable and deadly.. Just really don't see how deadly destruction will ever be in the current story..
  2. Indeed the English language uses singular they/their. But it typically occurs in sentences with indeterminate gender. Example: "Somebody left their umbrella in the office. Would they please collect it?" "The patient should be told at the outset how much they will be required to pay." Could this inconsistency be intentional? Well wouldn't it be fun if it is really like how I am presenting it? That a unit of Ardboyz gain +1 to their hit rolls when they have a boss? That a unit of Gruntas makes 4 attacks each when they have a boss? Interesting wouldn't it be?
  3. Sir, "They" or "Their" have never been use for what must only be a single model. I present all other warscrolls for reference, and as you will see.. None of the warscroll uses "they or their". Always specific model. Please read the first post for my point.

    GH2017 - Ironjawz Review & Discussion

    It is not any Megaboss. The wording is "Roll a dice in your hero phase for your general and each IRONJAWZ HERO in your army. Add 2 to the roll for your general if they are a MEGABOSS. On a roll of 6 or more, pick a friendly IRONJAWZ unit within 6" of the general or IRONJAWZ HERO being rolled for." I think it is clear.

    What the heck is Durthu standing on?

    Yes Dwarfs. The crest symbol is a Dwarf design.

    Changeling Deployment

    Yeah I believe that is how it was meant to be understood.

    Changeling Deployment

    Actually this move is done at the start of the battle. Which means that the Changeling will still need to be deployed during deployment. It is only after deployment is over, then a player can choose to place the Changeling in the opponent territory. During deployment, we deploy our units 12" away from our opponent territory. So... The reading of the word is clear, anywhere in your opponent half and only if you want to.

    Fanatics - How do you all play them?

    The recent Fanatics FAQ state that you must release ALL Fanatics within 1" of the unit. Firstly this prevent congo line setup shenanigansss. Next, this addressed the issue of bring one unit of 6 Fanatics but release them 1 at a time. They also answered the usage of multiple surprise units, that you activate one unit at a time and complete the charge/attack/surprise before picking another surprise. The setup section in the FAQs is still as clear as day for alot of people. I wonder why are people still playing it wrong?

    Tomb Herald x 2 side by side = immortal?

    I like how this discussion is going. A deep thoughts about abilities that seems too strong. I survived many times against a Vampire Lord on Zombie Dragon with Red Fury trait, Tomb blade Artefact, boosted with Blood Feast(1 extra attack to all melee weapon) and Mannfred's Vigour of Undeath Command ability. There was pure luck, all his attacks failed to wound. There was pure resilient, Frostlord on Stonehorn worth Mystic Shield. There was also good placement, cover save plus Mystic Shield plus Ironjawz Shields. Red Fury is scary but not unblockable. Two Spear Chukka can cut it down to size. But this? I dunno. TO need to take action if it is played, especially with another death hero. It's just impossible in Take & Hold, Three Places of Power, Gifts from the heaven battle plans. If playing Escalation battle plan it's just a distraction. If playing Border Wars and Blood & Glory, it's an irritation. Oh another counter is to use Slaughter Priest to break them apart and Slaughter them individually. Can anyone think of another counter?

    Tomb Herald x 2 side by side = immortal?

    Indeed this infinite loop needs to be ban in tournament. Actually the quickest fix to this problem is just to make the Tomb Herald an UNIQUE leader, shutting down this shenanigan.
  11. Together with the Death Allegiance ability to save on a 6+, mathematically it's impossible to kill them as they will just transfer the wounds inflicted back and fro until it is all saved. So does this means that only a Skarbrand can kill it? Or maybe Nagash and Archaon?

    Can battleline units be taken as one large unit

    Open play is still the most fun. But that requires a healthy dose of common sense and a sounds character. The Rules of 1s were created to give a guide for powergamer to not overpower their opponents. Imagine playing with an opponent who cast multi Mystic shield on a unit which makes it auto saves. Or another who plays a unit that shoot arrows that hits on 2+ and auto wound and rend -6. The Great Gitmob battalion can do that. 6x Sneaky Stabbing and +3 to hit. Anyway this is not answering the original post. No. No you can't combined your 3 units of grots in a moonclan/Gitmob battalion. It is listed to need 3 units of Goblins, not less nor more.

    Fanatics - How do you all play them?

    @JustPlay-Ritchie You are correct in the deployment. A fanatic is a powerful charge blocking asset. I shall explain the use of Multi units of single Fanatics and why it should rightfully use up a drop/set-up in deployment. Deploy 6 units of 1 Fanatic in one Moonclan Grots. Play game. Start of ANY charge phase, release 1 unit of 1 Fanatic and charge enemy unit(s)! Depending on the number of enemies and result of the charge, there will be multiple options: (if charge failed) Release another 1 unit of 1 Fanatics to charge that same unit. (if many enemy units can charge you) Release another 1 unit of 1 Fanatics to charge another enemy unit. Repeat the two step above until satisfied. Opponent then check which units are still eligible to charge. Any of his unit within 3" of those Fanatic are not able to charge. Which is to say when you release a Fanatic, it charges! Then you release another, which charges! One at a time. You do not release them all at one time. The proper way to use ability in AOS is to complete the ability of the current unit in the proper steps before activating another unit's ability. @Bowlzee I call a spade a spade, and I wasn't attacking. I said that he could be either, it was still an observation and question, not yet a judgement. I have proof that he did what he did. Yes my choice of word is rather tasteless. I should had just use " act dishonestly or unfairly in order to gain an advantage " and “ ignorance is no excuse ” Merely pointing out something I discovered. (I have screenshots in case there are changes and should you need it) See here => @grunnlock My interpretation of the rules? Hmmm. The FAQs already cleared it out. Whoever that is still arguing that this is open to interpretation clearly isn't following this thread. I do not know you, but a willingness to admit that you might had made a mistake when other point out to you is commendatory. It is also a show of sound character. But when others point out to you that you may have made a serious mistake, yet you pass it off as "it is just a game" or "everyone does it" to reride the intention, it is to express contempt about the discussion. Flaming is a hostile and insulting interaction between Internet users, often involving the use of profanity. I did not flamed. I merely suggested that you could be either a dishonest person or a person who made a major mistake without knowing, but the truth is something only you will know. We are all here to learn. If you can point out to me and make me learn, I will be willing to listen.

    Fanatics - How do you all play them?

    @Sarkazim I am not flaming you here. There is a point to all these. in the recent Blood and Glory tournament the 3rd place winner did not deploy his Fanatics as per the rules. He has 11 units in his list but only set up 8 units during deployment, winning him the choice of first turn many times. If he was aware of it and did it, he is an awful cheater. If he was clueless and ignorant of this rule in deployment, it's foul play. The power to decide who takes first turn can win or lose game. Especially if you have a Stonehorn with Battlebrew that is capable of doing up to 38" to deal around 15-25 wounds
