  1. Let's Chat Sylvaneth

    Here's how I ruled it personally in the Wellsian Wars Player's Pack, attached, but others might house rule/play it differently.

    Hi, You can't use Tanglethorn Thicket in a turn in which you charged. In any other instance, you can use Tanglethorn Thicket in the combat phase, either your combat phase or your opponent's. However, you must announce you're going to use Tanglethorn Thicket at the start the charge phase -- again either your charge phase or your opponent's, depending on who has the turn. Hope that helps.

    Hey @Chris Tomlin sorry man didn't intend at all to sound dismissive of the result, it was brilliant. I'm tempted to just delete the posts and wish I never would've raised the topic of soft scores. Anyway, sorry.
  6. Destruction showing at Facehammer GT - Debrief

    And yeah I didn't look at this in detail, but more just looked at Chris's fantastic result with Ironjawz and noticed the extra +10 on painting and +10 on sports gave him a jump from 155 -- the range for 13th to 18th place -- to 175, tying for 3rd but losing the tie-breaker to Nicky. So the comment about "soft scores were a contributing factor" was a result of seeing the difference between him finishing tied for 3rd with Ironjawz and finishing 4th vs tied for 12th where he would've finished 15th (I believe...). So my brain saw that and immediately thought "Well that seems like a notable difference." I'll freely admit that kind of reaction to a single example doesn't/shouldn't have much bearing on the topic of soft scores at tournaments. Anyway, would love to discuss all of this in depth with you some time.
  7. Destruction showing at Facehammer GT - Debrief

    Happy to discuss this some time @svnvaldez. I've admitted an emotional bias many times before on being interested in better understanding what tools can increase the number of factions and lists that can compete on top tables at tournaments -- in increasing the range of viable competitive variety at any given time. Ironjawz, Nighthaunts, Soulblight, Wanderers, Flesh-Eater Courts, Beastclaw Raiders, and many, many others are, all else equal, behind the eight ball when it comes to the top tables. With that said, it's extremely early in GH17, so surprises could happen. Ultimately, personally, I'm fine with whatever at any given time. There's no argument I can give you that it "should be a certain way." Again, it's a personal bias. I'm emotionally more attached to the notion of a broader range of factions being competitively viable on the top tables, and interested in better understanding what tools can help increase viable variety in that regard. Maybe that's a dumb thing to be interested in. Maybe it's a reasonable thing but I'm focusing on the "wrong" elements. Maybe I'm missing obvious things that you see. Maybe you have much better ideas. Maybe you have completely different interests. I'd love to better understand the perspective on hard-scores-only as well. Reece and I chatted a few weeks ago and I know he doesn't like soft scores. It'd be great to learn more about the perspective.

    Soft scores were a contributing factor, which is fantastic IMO and maybe a reflection of why soft scores can be a net positive. They can be one way (among others) of giving a faction like Ironjawz, Nighthaunts, or Soulblight a better shot at a podium, whereas under hard scores only they'd have a tougher go of it on average vs SCE, Tzeentch, Murderhost, et al.
  9. Events UK: FaceHammer Grand Tournament 2 (30sep-1Oct)

    I think Sam took Les's SCE (Stardrake, 4 Fulminators, etc.), but could be wrong...
  10. Events UK: FaceHammer Grand Tournament 2 (30sep-1Oct)

    Another tourney where it seems soft scores were a large net positive, especially that brilliant placing with The Black Sunz. It seems exactly what we'd want to hope for with the inclusion of soft scores.
  11. Greatly enjoying the thread guys! Congrats to @Chris Tomlin and @Sangfroid on Facehammer too. Played against Ironjawz a couple times over the weekend with the trees. Definitely seemed like they need ally shooting. Played around with a few lists afterward and thought this one was interesting, attached. 1. 4 Rock Lobbers for quite a bit of no-LOS 44" threat w/ potential for extra attacks on 6+ (or 5+ vs 10+ models). 2. Couple solid heroes for Duality of Death. Maybe Skewer instead on Megaboss on foot but love the damage potential w/ the extra rend. 3. Decent # of units/bodies with some diversity/adaptability. 4 Rock Lobbers (or e.g. 3 Spear-Chukkas) seems like it could change the equation in certain matchups (lists/scenarios), where you could now hang back and potentially do some real ranged damage before exposing many of your units. In that regard, certain lists might decide to alpha-strike in response, but 10 Ardboys + 2x3 Gore-Gruntas should help with screening and keeping folks off the Rock Lobbers and Brutes. This is all theory, though...just wanted to share some initial ideas. Hoping to get in more games vs the 'jawz this coming weekend, this time w/ more shooting in their list! PS Allegiance is supposed to be Ironjawz...forgot to change it in Scrollbuilder.
  12. SC or Sylvaneth, if you had to choose.

    Hi there, if you're looking to play competitively a lot, e.g., looking to attend multiple tournaments, Stormcast are one of the best bets all around. They have about every tool at their disposal, multiple competitive builds, multiple playstyles, the largest model range w/ guaranteed annual expansion, great for painting and customizing to your liking, etc.

    Hey Laurie, did you try Alarielle again or go with a different Gnarlroot for Facehammer? Looks like sylvaneth struggled again in general at the event, although I didn't see many folks running them, which was also interesting. What would you say are some of the issues you've been running into? @Mirage8112 has been focusing on Dreadwood as well and has a lot of in-depth thoughts on it.
  14. Let's Chat Sylvaneth

    @Mirage8112 - Either Nico's or Tony's that Laurie shared would be solid to test against. Just looking at them on paper makes me queasy.
  15. Let's Chat Sylvaneth

    @Lhw - Thanks for sharing your experiences so far. Does the attached look roughly like one of the top Changehost builds? Just going off top of my head (didn't specify spells etc.). We should probably just find Tony Moore's Blackout list and @Mirage8112 / et al. could test against it.
