  1. Dark Aelf (Shadowblades)

    I hope this doesnt come across as rude since it is not my intention. But you are playing / painting an army made out of 2 different models ? You really need to switch it up man. Or you will get bored out of your mind. Take your losses. You can still use your dark riders and assassins in a much more balanced order force. More variety is good. Both for painting and list quality. Having dark riders as battleline doesnt really net you much. I hope you wont take offense. It just seems to me that you are stuck on an idea that's detrimental to your hobby.

    They are just a great unit. With the little playtesting ive done with them they just seem to perform very well points wise. They are objective grappers that can shoot. Disrupt, tank, deal damage. Seriously. If you compare this unit at 200 points to any other and you throw the mathhammer at it they will win. I actually considered running bless weapon prayer. Seeing as they get a +2 to hit innately. Might actually do some work. Although. In the allies section. There are other options to help me deal with wizards. A battlewizard for example would help out against magic. Mystic shield is also good And a bloodwrack shrine would help against hordes. That said. I'm open for suggestions !
  3. Lizards of the Storm

    Hello there internet. i've brewed a Stormcast list aimed for a tournament using the new Generals handbook. Most of the list is salvage from my old list which did fairly well in the meta against skyfires etc. The biggest change to the list is the Allies, which is.. well Skinks. as many as i could fit in. I'd like to hear your thoughts on the list. if there is any glaring mistakes or weaknesses. and in general your thoughts. Open to all Comments. you can be as Honest as you'd like. Allegiance: Stormcast EternalsLeadersLord-Celestant On Stardrake (560)- General- Celestine Hammer- Trait: Staunch Defender - Artefact: Mirrorshield - Stardrake Trait: Keen-clawedLord-Castellant (100)Lord-Relictor (80)- Prayer: Lightning ChariotBattleline40 x Skinks (200)- Boltspitters & Star Bucklers40 x Skinks (200)- Boltspitters & Star Bucklers5 x Judicators (160)- Skybolt Bows- 1x Shockbolt Bows- Stormcast Eternals Battleline5 x Judicators (160)- Skybolt Bows- 1x Shockbolt Bows- Stormcast Eternals Battleline5 x Liberators (100)- Warhammers- 1x GrandhammersUnits2 x Tempestors (220)2 x Tempestors (220)Total: 2000/2000 The most obvious weakness is magic. Dracothian guard and Stardrake will melt away to mortal wounds caused by it. . Otherwise it should have great staying power. and mobility.
  4. Not a lazy "Make a Stormcast list for me" thread

    I like this list. Interesting to buff the concussors in anticipation of upcomming hordes. Remember that the stardrakes already have an inbuilt horde killer tool.( not the best one but hey.) I usually run with the lord celestant on stardrake when using multiple dracothian guard. His shield is so powerfull when buffed with staunch defender and warding lantern. With the command ability The dracoths d6 damage becomes somewhat more reliable and helps against chaff. I can see why you like the vanguard mobility. But i feel like 1-2 relictors with lightning chariot does the same thing. They will also help you keep your things alive. Healing dracothian guard is so much value.because of their incredible save and low wound count. It just seems to me that you spend alot of points for a lot of mobility with mediocre stats. The msu vanguard units wont accomplish much. Teleporting 3 raptors or 3 palladors wont make a huge impact. Dracothian guard needs some defensive buffs to be more reliable or they will wittle away quickly. With a wardin lantern or mystic shield / staunch defender they should be able to take on most horde units. ( granted they have no rend) with that 2+ rerollable they tank a lot.

    Hmm. Or you could run a drakesworn temple. I did a little thinking. And the lcod truely shines when buffed with warding lantern + defender. But it seems fun !!

    There was a stormcast list wich used lord celestant on stardrake and 2 fulminators. Which came in third or second in a mass skyfire / kunnin meta tournament. He's such a tanky beast. Good against elite units. Good against chaff. Can whittle down heroes / snipe. And buffed up he's very unlikely to die. Needless to say he's now my favorite unit in stormcast. Also he got 40 points cheaper !!. That shield is amazing. With a castellent and staunch defender he will be running around with a 1+ save rerollable. He gets taken down by heavy single target magic and mass mortal wounds in cc. But my god.

    I like your dragons list. The other breath attack might actually be utilzed now that horde units are in play. Sadly you cant include more lcod's i'd gladly pay the 60 points for his shield alone.

    Also. when she lands and your opponent decides to throw.. say a squad at liberators at her. it would take her 3-4rounds on average to get through them. MEH.

    I think people will try her out, Realize she cant act or kill the turn she arrives, and then your opponent murders her.

    Ive been playing with dracothian guard for awhile now with all the iterations. (Even 8 desolators) After the initial charge fulminators and tempestors behave in a very similar manner. But the tempestors ability gives you some form of control. And reach. Its very balanced. Concussors generally punch a little harder. Their stun ability is insane against horde units. But at 280 their a niche counter unit. If hordes is the new meta i think they will be good.

    Your point is still valid.
  12. Skarac is still 500points. With no update to his warscroll

    I'm Currently building a list with skinks and dragons - Theres a hidden gem in this list, with bless weapons and skinks. effectivly creating Extra attacks on 4+ Lord celestant on Star-drake 560. Staunch Defender, Keen Clawed, MirrorShield, Lord Castellent 100. Lord-Relictor 80. Lightning Chariot Lord-Relictor 80. Bless Weapon. ------------ Fulminator-(2) 240. Fulminator(2) 240. Liberator(5) 100. Liberator(5) 100. Liberator(5) 100. Skinks(40) 200. Skinks(40) 200. 2000/2000 pt. A Similar list (without skinks) have performed very well for me recently, i think the skinks will make it better.
  14. Duhh. Im an idiot.
  15. That's kunnin ruk your talking about there. The skinks shouldent be killing as much as being a pain in the ass. Their shooting is only 16 inch range at a 3+ 5+. But it's their retreat ability that will make you cringe. I think.
