  1. I'm not a fan of the Plaguetouched Warband. Dealing out mortal wounds seems effective but having to take multiples of 7 is a real handicap. With Blightkings you need to take units of 14 which is a crazy high points sink. You'll only be able to take one or two units of them. When it comes to marauders and other units that come in 10s, you'd want to take them in 28s to avoid paying for too many minis you couldn't field. Across an army you'd have a load of units with models left at home. For me, you'll lose more than you gain.
  2. This came up over the weekend: The Changehost says 'two different pairs of units'. Can your second pair contain one of the units from the original pair? Thanks.
  3. Are there any additional offensive buffs we can put on the Tzaangor (I know they're smashy as hell already). I usually put Shield of Fate, Mystic Shield and Inspiring Presence on them. Anyone do anything to give them a little but more punch? Cheers.
  4. Nice idea. I'm looking forward to finally trying out the underground / temple one.
  5. I'm list building and looking at ways to make the blightkings a bit more effective on the tabletop. Lovely models; not killy enough. Can anyone suggest places to get +1 to hit from in Chaos other than from the allegiance abilities? Thanks in advance!
  6. This is excellent news! On the other hand...it seems to me pretty pointless giving things like the jabberslythe new keywords unless they're planning to release a book for those factions. I doubt 'brayherds' will ever get a battletome because they're about as old-Warhammer as it gets. The whole faction is ancient (albeit great) models, it's heavily based in ancient mythology (which GW are eradicating), and we've already seen the AoS evolution of gor into the tzaangor, I'd be stunned if we get another beastmen based release. Besides, I just sold my beastmen army. They better not make them great!
  7. Sign me up for this! Can't wait!
  8. Of course! So it doesn't matter which order they're attacked in, even if it's by multiple units! Sweet. Thanks!
  9. I bunch a unit of pink horrors next to a unit of blues and a unit of brimstones. When my opponent charges all three with one of their units, my horrors are bunched so tight that only a couple of enemy models can get into base contact with each colour. Because all attacks from a warscroll are made simultaneously, is it safe to assume all of the horrors die simultaneously (if he choses to attack each unit at all) allowing them to split into the adjacent units instantly? My opponent can't say 'I'll kill the pinks first, then the blues, then the brimstone' can he, even if he rolls in that order? Thanks in advance!
  10. Had a mint day at Battle Bunker. My 'filthy' Tzeentch took home 1st place. Bagged myself the sexy Karl Franz Memorial Trophy! Finally, something to put in my cabinet! Cheers to Justin for putting it on. So chuffed! I'll be back for the next one!
  11. What's your plan? Me too! All I saw at first was the metal top hat. Now I realise that's the only thing I don't like.
  12. I think the 8th Edition plastics will almost certainly be part of the new army. The infantry, gyros and characters will probably appear in a Start Collecting box and we'll get a load of new filth to fill the army out.
  13. Wait...what did I miss? Where did that image come from?
  14. Yeah. You'd pay for a full unit each time. I dismissed this option out of hand, as I thought it'd be foolish to pay for minis that you didn't get. However, Mark Wildman used blue horrors from his reinforcement pool when he came third at Sheffield Slaughter. He reckoned the advantage of putting a handful down nearby when pinks died, outweighed not getting a full ten models. He was using them to tie up enemy units in combat. I'm definitely going to be trying it.
  15. Things round this way have been steadily growing and, just recently, the popularity of the game seems to have exploded. I've gone from one regular opponent in 8th, to a small group of players (my D&D group were all convinced to get on board), and now we have a local club: Newcastle Warlords. The club has grown so popular it's recently gone from every three weeks to every two weeks. I'm running a slow grow campaign (250 points every four weeks) and the first night attracted 19 players! In addition to the success of our club in Newcastle, there's a new gaming venue opened over in Sunderland called Battle Bunker. This place has some superb tables of GW scenery and is gonna be running regular tournaments of up to 36 players! It really feels like the local scene we dreamed of when AoS dropped is now coming into being. We're kind of isolated here in the North East - most other big cities are 2/3 hours away - so it's genuinely exciting that we've got so much of our own going on. Long may AoS continue to grow!
