  1. Remember rule of one applies to lord kroaks spell. Just in case you missed it.
  2. But hey man. I'm not the author of the list theres room for change. I think celestial hurricanum is an awesome model with good rules and it might do well in aetherstrike in a less competetive enviroment. But looking at recent tournament lists with skyfires and Kunnin i doubt it will do well against those.
  3. Hey yeah slight mistake with the Mirrorshield. You mustave missed my Edit. You park your protectors in front of whatever ranged damage is comming your way ( kunnin ) Gryph hounds are there to deal with alpha strike. It's a unit to be shuffled around if skyrer or other alpha strike don't see play then exhange for whatever. As mentioned. Lightning Chariot is awesome. One of the weaknesses of the Aetherstrike is That you don't have alot of options to secure objectives. The Chariot helps in this case . It can also be used offensivly. Depending on the matchup teleportIn your shooty units in range of key targets ( DoT shamans) will help you secure victory. Your opponent will try to keep his key units outside of the 30inch range of Your longstrikes. it's simply helps against a lot of thing.

  5. In short The biggest weakness of aetherstrike is it's weak objective game. And the squishyness of the raptors. Trading +1 to hit vs -1 to be hit and the rerolls and the extra mobility seems bad. Against lists Who cannot shoot death / melee khorne lists. Hurricanum will be better.
  6. This compared to the classic list has some major cons. No doubt the +1 to hit turns the whole thing into a killing machine. But you are losing your ability to protect your squishy raptors. You Could mystic shield them and put them in terrain to give them the classic 2+ save but this seems unreliable. Your missing the -1 hit from protectors and the reroll 6 to hit from castellant. Staunch defender helps you stay protected even if you move. Against skyfires this will auto lose i think. Same with Kunnin lists. 240 shots will kill them without the -1 hit and reroll 6 to hit. Question is what is gained and what is lost . I doubt the +1 to hit will do much. Outside of stormcast unkillable tanky units are kind of rare. So the need for mortal wounds is slighty reduced. + they have a base -2 rend. My thoughts.
  7. Did the Aetherstrike list see much play at the scgt ? Besides 1 Player ?
  8. Ill have you know the celestant prime hit a nurgle lord so hard that His soul was sent to sigmar to repent. You should reconsider your evil ways.
  9. Does anyone have the number on beastclaw-Kunnin Rukk and DoT lists at this event? From the various podcasts and videos it seems that they were in abundence. Thanks for sharing !
  10. There is multiple ways of playing seraphon. They are the jack of all trades. Downside right now is That there is not real reason to stay mono seraphon. If you are planning mono seraphon decide what kind of playstyle you want and build a list around a Battalion. Big monsters ? Thunderquake is a good place to start. Fast and hard hitting ? Shadow strike . Durabel and magic heavy ? Temple guards. And slaans.
  11. Do you need help building a list and then buying the models to fit that list ? Ive played a fair bit of seraphon with mixed results. Bastilidons are generally considered a good unit. I would suggest picking up atleast one. The skink priest is a key piece in the army. Generally run with 1-2 I would build a list around a batallion. Either the shadow strike thing or the Temple guard batallion. Don't have the book on me so I can't get more specific. Ill get back later today with more insight.
  12. Question for you Ben, you talk about your traits for the stardrakes (the +1 movement and wound table thingie) did you consider the keen-clawed ? -3 rend on 6 to wound. Seems theres a slight synergy with the command ability to reroll to wound on both your stardrakes. Would help against other behemoths since there is little rend on your side. Also . What Weapons are you planning on using ?
  13. I think Mirrorshield + Keen clawed really helped the stardrake and templar. Your list seems crazy fun ! Goodluck
