    I don't know if there are any MUST haves so far. The Aspect of the Sea looks amazing though. I had a list a few pages back that might be decent, and has the models you are talking about. I think it you want to bring high numbers of expensive troops, the cost of an Akhelian King is much more palatable than the eidolons.

    Yeah I definitely think the Thralls need healing to be worth using in large numbers. It is an interesting decision because points go quickly in ID lists, or at least the ones I have been making so far.

    I don't really know which particular list is MORE competitive. I think both have their pros and cons. I don't know that I agree with the idea that you need to get 30 thralls into attack range or you are somehow losing out on their cost? The point of large units isn't that you can put them all into combat. Also, I think it is clear that individual Thralls will die faster than eels. But unless it is FAQed, you can be rezzing 4+ a turn per Soulrender even if you don't use the battalion benefit. Put 2 or 3 Soulrenders in an army and that becomes an issue.

    I think they depend on what you want to play. Mor'phann seems a standout for Namarti spam, Ionrach for allies shenanigans, Briomdar for movement insanity. I am tempted to go with a list like this: Mor'phann Enclave Akhelian King Soulrender x2 Tidecaster Namarti Thralls x30 Namarti Thralls x30 Namarti Thralls x30 Namarti Reavers x10 Namarti Reavers x10 Namarti Corps Warscroll Battalion I think there is room to change up the list as long as you keep the enclave. The enclave bonus lets your Soulrender rez 4 Thralls a turn vs 6 with the battalion bonus. I am not sure that is worth the 100pts or the second unit of Reavers tax. I would keep one unit of Reavers regardless for Tidecaster babysitting.

    I am going to get a second boat and use it. So, there will at least be two of us wrong together if turns out they meant to clarify halves.

    Just finished assembling my Aspect of the Sea, and wow. Just the mechanics of putting it together are amazing, and it is far sturdier than you might think. Hugely impressed by the design studio for such a beautiful and functional model.

    Bob on War of Sigmar says the Akhelian Guard will be released on 19 May. I am not sure if that is preorder or actual release. Seems they are stretching the releases out quite a bit.

    I think any Thrall heavy list has to be Mor'Phann and if that has some give, certainly having a Soulrender does not. Bigger groups of Thralls are even better to bring back models because they will weather incoming damage enough so that a unit remains to be refilled.
  9. The Rumour Thread

    If I remember correctly this sort of small batch release schedule is exactly what people like Atia said would happen pre-End Times. I can't find it now, most of it was on Warseer I think, but I distinctly remember wondering how it would work out. I assume that means GW is releasing the basics for new factions and then seeing how they sell before determining which to support later.

    Totally agree it will be strong no matter what. And yes it will take a certain amount of willpower I am not sure I have (pretty sure I don't have in fact) to get a fully painted horde army on the table. I will likely try a minimum sized Namarti Corps to start.
  11. Lets Chat: Idoneth Deepkin

    I wonder if they will make it clear that you can only use Lurelight on a unit one time. Otherwise, I agree with you, that Thrall spam list looks pretty cool. They aren't chaff by any measure and bringing them back will be great.

    According to leaks on War of Sigmar the Thralls do get a points reduction at max level. It’s a pic from the battletome so pretty accurate I think I’ve seen multiple sources saying they get no reduction, so just be aware bad info is floating around (see what I did there).
  13. Lets Chat: Idoneth Deepkin

    Great response. I’m gonna try to make the allopex work (obv) but those are very valid points. I guess it’s a tough spot for GW. I do see the allopex as a chariot type model, and what do you do when you already have chariots that generally cost 100 and then you add flying, more wounds, more rend, and more attacks, plus better faction abilities? They are sort of stuck. That being said, as I have been making some rough lists, points go quickly so far. It will take some testing for sure to find a spot, and it may be that outside a warscroll battalion we don’t see these guys much.

    I am really thinking about going Thrall heavy. Will definitely have to test actual games first before laying down that sort of money for Thralls. But I think it’s totally reasonable that units of 30 Thralls will be quite good.
  15. Lets Chat: Idoneth Deepkin

    I’ve been trying to understand the allopex dislike. A lot of good points made about army role, but do we really think that the allopex should be the same cost as a Lion Chariot (100 pts). I mean just take a look at other units like that and plz help me understand how GW could have costed the shark chariot at less than 120. Maybe 140 is too high (though I’m not sure of it), but 80 or 100 is a bit crazy.
