    Let's talk about Endless Spells

    The community article on the Malign Sorcery package was the initial source. https://www.warhammer-community.com/2018/06/15/14th-june-preview-malign-sorcerygw-homepage-post-4/

    Multi sound models andere battleshock

    You choose the model that flees. You definitely want to make the wounded model leave in these situations!

    Proof that GW is now writing their rules in Elvish. Let's see if the LotR folks can provide a translator!

    Lets Chat: Darkling Covens

    Strength: Sorceress on Black Dragon is a beautiful model. I want one just to paint! Weakness: I have no idea - I’m just interested in the amazing Black Dragon.

    This way your opponent can potentially stop Empower from happening. It’s more interactive than a prayer.

    Thoughts on 'who will get nerfed?'

    In my opinion, the problem is that GW attempts to balance armies at the top end. So at the high-profile events, Tzeentch (or similar strong armies) don’t dominate, as the top-level players can take most lists and find ways to beat whatever comes their way. At the lower levels, armies like Tzeentch will dominate. I don’t have the collection or the skill to build my Seraphon army to compete with that. Thankfully nobody at my local shop runs anything like that, but if anybody did it would lend itself to a LOT of one-sided games.

    Blue Scribes' Scroll of Sorcery

    I think agreeing to roll for the casting value made sense. After all, the Scrolls of Sorcery tells you that on a 2+ your spell is successfully cast (and can be unbound on a 9+), so the cast succeeds. Since Unleash Spites refers to the casting roll, it seems reasonable to me that you'd need to roll for it. This is such a unique gray area that I doubt it would show up in an FAQ but you ought to ask if you want to get an official answer. Send the FAQ team an email at AOSFAQ@gwplc.com.

    Well I read the faction focus for Beastclaw and I still want to start them as my next army! They look fun to paint and fun to play with. Honestly some of those Grot models have me thinking along those lines, too.

    AoS 2.0 Winners and Losers

    Winners: GW and their shareholders. They’re going to sell so many of those amazing new starter boxes!

    Army for hobbyist

    I suggest Seraphon. Tons of different units, lots of mounts... plus, DINOSAURS RIDING DINOSAURS!! They’re also lots of fun on the table.

    In my experience his warscroll spell is so limited in scope I think I've used it once (and I don't think I got anything out of it). However, I found that the Vast Intellect command trait has been an enormous boon, as I've gotten ridiculous use out of both Curse of Fates and Summon Starlight. That trait made him a much more dangerous support piece, though I can see myself using one spell just to generate additional Conjuration points on a regular basis.

    Totems and Priests haven’t been able to use any spells, so these are no different.

    Age of Sigmar: Second Edition

    On a note highly related to your points here, 8 years ago I finished my PhD dissertation. The last 5-6 months of that time were purely devoted to writing and editing the manuscript with the help of both of my research advisors. At the end I ordered a hard copy (because I wanted a physical manifestation of my blood, sweat, and tears) and the first few things I saw were mistakes. Even though three people went through every page of that thing multiple times with fine-toothed combs. No matter how much time and energy go into a written document, mistakes sneak through. I don’t like finding the mistakes any more than you do, but my personal experience has made me understand them.

    Age of Sigmar: Second Edition

    @BURF1, if you hate everything GW has ever done with the game, why are you wasting your time with Age of Sigmar and these forums? Some of us here actually enjoy the game and are excited and/or cautiously optimistic about version 2.0 and it's rather annoying watching people dump all over something we know little about at this point.
