    Why can’t you just say “if battlemages don’t break immersion then female troopers shouldn’t either.” Or any number of other comments that don’t take passive aggressive swipes at people? I think the presentations by Becca Scott are fine, whether her nerd cred is legit or she’s just on there to have someone different. I have a seven year old daughter who is super excited for “girl power” armies in AoS (went to the store with me and looooved Morathi), and I know for a fact that seeing another girl involved makes her want to play more. So I am all for it. Bring more people into the hobby, it won’t change a thing other than give GW more money to make more awesome products.

    Yeah you aren’t wrong about the benefits of EG. My post was more towards the idea that they were clearly better than in-faction units. I wouldn’t discard the idea of using them, especially if you like them aesthetically. They are certainly good enough that you don’t hurt yourself a significant amount by using them.

    I am a bit lost on the idea that EG are the best filler unit. I almost never see them in mixed Order lists, so why are they all of a sudden better than Thralls or Reavers here? Is it entirely cost based? Bc I think that is ignoring many in-faction benefits. If you take Soulrenders, Thralls are better especially under Mor'phann. Reavers just seem better in general due to speed (which works quite well with Tides of Death) and the ability to shoot. I understand the desire to have a cheap unit, but we really don't need a cheap roadblock. Roadblocks are better found in Ishlaen (though not cheap) and I would say our faction in general isn't meant to be slow or holding things off. We move fast and position for strikes.

    Isn’t the new ally percentage 25? If so AoStorm is still going to be good to go in 2k games.

    Points Changes

    Maybe that Mystic Shield got nerfed, so the cover ability is better/more rare in the new edition than the old? Its all I can think of.

    Just a quick note on this. If you look on the GW website right now under bestsellers for AoS, 7 of the top 14 are Deepkin. Pretty decent sales I would say.

    Evocators - Coming soon

    Yup. 200 for 5. Hopefully that means Paladins get a point reduction also.

    Thanks, so strange.

    Are you sure about all of this? Castigators come in a unit of 5 in the new box so groups of 3 seems unlikely.

    There were a few Deepkin armies in the latest GT list compilation on the main News page here. If I had to guess, I would say a new edition hurts a new faction just because you can't be quite sure what they will look like. But, I am not too worried, like @Drofnum said I see a lot of people painting up a new army. Plus, you should paint them just because you love them. Its a solid army collection even if we never get more models.

    My opinion is that you have to choose between an Aspect or a Leviadon. Either one can fit in most lists I think, but both are too many points in a small (model count) package. And I don’t think it’s that you have to build a list around either one. The Leviadon is complementary to both infantry and Akhelians.

    That's what I thought was going on also. Though I am also fine with spells being based on army realm.

    The Rumour Thread

    I think you mean End Times, fun times, amirite? Also, the preview for your new book convinced me to take some Nuln Oil to a previously blue/white painted SCE force. Counts as Heldenhammer here we come.

    If you look back a few pages, the guy who placed 7th at the latest GT used three units of Reavers as his core. I don’t think it’s accurate to say they are useless. They probably take more finesse than most battleline options.
