    Swords are almost always better than maces. They are better without buffs, any buffs to wound rolls (such as Empower or Celestial Blades) make the swords pull ahead even further. Buffs to the number of attacks like Vandus Hammerhand or the Celestial Vindicators command traits might make the Maces better.
  3. I think GW is just throwing stuff out there and letting the community figure out if they want to use it or not.

    It's so difficult to get more than 2 Lord Arcanum into a single list... even if cycle works in the most broken way possible (ie: negates "overkill" damage) I still don't see it being overpowered. There's no sense arguing about Cycle any further. It definitely has to be covered in the FAQ, so let's just wait and see.

    Buying Command Points

    In theory, sure. In practice you get shot off the table in the first turn and then they casually stroll over to the objectives. Anvils of the Heldenhammer with 12 Longstrikes and as many command points as they can get. A cap on starting CP might be the right solution.

    Buying Command Points

    I like the idea of people using that ability multiple times by pooling their command points and building a list that can benefit from that kind of ability, but 16 times in the first turn is entirely too much. The Anvils ability would be powerful without being silly if people started the game with (for example) a max of +3 CP.

    Buying Command Points

    Just play a smaller game size...?

    Buying Command Points

    This is only part of the problem. Command abilities can be insane force multipliers and it's not fun to play against grots doing 128 damage or 12 Longstrikes doing >200 shots before they even have to move. That it favours some factions over others only exacerbates this issue. I don't think the issue is stacking command abilities, I think it's easy access to command points. It doesn't seem like the command ability system was designed with people starting the game with >10 command points. Anvils of the Heldenhammer wouldn't be so abusive if it only had +2 CP instead of +15. Do people want to play a game that encourages you to spend 1/4 of your army buffing a single unit to absurd proportions instead of taking models?

    That's pretty easy to miss, thanks

    The Hallowed Knights command trait is kinda funny. If your general dies you can you can pile in and attack immediately (on a 2+). As per the core rules, when your general dies you can pick another general and generate a new command trait immediately. There is no restriction on whether your hero already attacked or not this turn, so you can attack, die, and immediately attack again. Nominate another hero to be the general and repeat the process. Keep doing this until you run out of heroes. I wonder if you could make a list with a lot of combat-oriented heroes suiciding their way to a posthumous victory.
  11. There are lots of command abilities that turn from powerful to oppressively strong when used 3+ times in the same turn, and being able to do that in the first turn of the game leads to a lot of lists built around alpha strikes that can table people. What do you think about being able to buy command points? Is it fine, should that mechanic be removed, or perhaps the cost is just set too low at 50points?
  12. I like the Realmscape rules in Matched Play, even the very disruptive ones. I don't like when they are randomly generated, or if you don't know which one it is going to be ahead of time. I think events where the Realms & Realmscapes are announced ahead of time could be really fun. It adds another dimension to building your list.

    And the comet does +1mw to each target it hits It's a tight list but the plan is to drop a meteor and Pendulum on one objective, push Stardrake + wizards + Castellant towards the other one, and use Liberators to drop in where necessary. It only works if the Stardrake is immortal, which is why this artifact choice is so important

    Given that I'll have the comet & stardrake for potential -2 casting, 4 unbinds, and 2 dispel scrolls I think I should be fine against magic. I have an Arcanum on GC for the healing spell (can hit the D6 heal easier with +2 casting) so I may not need the Lens at all. I'm thinking Ignax's Scales might be the way to go here, since I'm only really worried about dying to a mass amount of mortal wounds. I am taking a Grand Convocation battalion to give one of my Incantors the Staff of Focus to drop a meteor, and then use the Cogs and cast her unique spell.

    Which artifacts do you prefer for an "immortal Stardrake" type of list ? I have a Grand Convocation in the list so I have 2 dispel scrolls and plenty of unbinding. Right now I'm looking at the following options: Lens (expecting to see Nurgle & Seraphon, this protects all my frail wizards) Mirrorshield (neuter shooting armies completely) Gryph-feather Charm (remove all those pesky hit6+ abilities, both melee and missile) Ignax's Scales (4+ ignore vs mw seems good against new Longstrikes, spells, stormfiends, etc.)
