  1. Nighthaunt Start advice

    Thing is you can’t use a mortis engine in nighthaunt at all. despite it being pulled by spirits, driven by a wraith like guy and haveing banshees swirling round it... good move gw!

    What did you face at the event?

    Interesting, Arkhan and morghasts are on my radar to add to the ghosts, they do seem a good combo to add

    Went to Greetings from Sigmar yesterday, took the following: 1 wraith (Ruler) 3 wraiths 1 Banshee (shard) 2x 6 Hosts 2x 3 Hosts 1x 5 Hexwraiths 2 Mourngul Game 1 vs Bonesplitterz Duality of death, he game me turn one so it seemed rude not to put the two Mourngul on the objectives asap. one died from 175 arrows on turn 2 but I was able to keep his heroes off that for most of the game... the other objective the Mourngul ate boar boys and a rogue idol ftw. Major win. game 2 vs Tzeentch starstrike, worst match up I could hope for combined with an unfavourable drop of objectives and I was never in this. Mortal wounded at range and spells badly. Major loss. game 3 vs nurgle knife to the heart, mission had plenty of cover and I was able to get his glottkin in combat in terrain with 6 hosts and kill him on t4, 3 hosts got morbidex in the back field t3. At the end we both kept our objectives but I had killed 1180-580 so got the minor win. i came 6/7th out of 16 players so was pretty pleased. Had I faced the Tzeentch on duality I think I could have won that but hey ho. really enjoying the nighthaunt, rough match ups are really rough but I feel they have game into a lot of armies and they are a nice tactical challenge to play. I need more practice with the light shard to get better use out of it tho.

    Very cool! i have my next event in two weeks, going to again take nighthaunt and will use the last list I posted above, but will use the light shard artefact I reckon.

    From memory: runeson on magma rune dad runemaster battlesmith runeamiter x2 vulkites x30 vulkites x30 vulkites x10 HG Berzerkers x30 lords of the lodge. he got turn 1 and put a smitter on the objectives then bubble wrapped 30 guys around it. he went for two charges on my two bigger spirit hosts units but failed both so we engaged on the centre line... if he had made those charges we would have engaged by my deployment zone and I could have dropped my reserves down with space to kill his back field stuff! i got a Mourngul in to kill a smitter to score a point in turn 4 but couldn’t get to the other ones smitter in time. i think if I had played this game with battle for the pass or even scorched earth I would have won

    I just went with the standard nihilak oxide and some metal blades for mine, quick and easy to do and the army looks striking on the board even if it is a tad monotone as the thin paint gives instant shade n highlight especially on the spirit hosts

    I did yeah, I went with the following: 2 Cairn Wraiths 2 Banshees 6 hosts 6 hosts 3 hosts 3 hosts 5 Hexwraiths 2 Mourngul Game 1 vs fyreslayers duality of death, he got turn one and tunnelled a runesmitter and 30 berzerkers onto each objective! I ended up killing 70+ dwarfs but not quick enough to get a meaningful score up. major loss Game 2 vs Death starstrike, I got to the first objective with some hosts and moved my Mourngul to engage Nagash and the zombie dragon. 2nd objectives came down in the far side of the board and I dropped the hexes on one and some hosts to go after his one. major win game 3 vs Death scorched earth, we both held our own objectives till turn 5 when we got through defenders and raised one each, I rolled a one and he rolled a four haha major loss. Good fun event, nighthaunt can compete in most scenarios I feel but the lack of a real damage dealer now without allies can be telling at times.

    Doh! if I had more hosts I could bin off the hexes haha

    Got a tourney on Saturday, gonna be running this list: 2x Cairn Wraith 3x Tomb Banshee 6x Spirit Hosts 6x Spirit Hosts 3x Spirit Hosts 3x Spirit Hosts 5x Hexwraiths 2x Mournguls Ruler of the spirts on a wraith, and maybe light shard on the other wraith rather than my standard midnight tome
  11. Let's Chat: Nighthaunt

    All my games so far have used the reroll trait on a wraith and hidden him till everything was on the board, then he can be sacrificed as needed as inspiring presence is not high on my list of priorities haha. Also used the midnight tome to buff a Mourngul most turns but also the occasional arcane bolt at heroes or to free up units from stragglers. The light shard would have been handy in a few games when those 36 attacks from the big spirit hosts have fluffed but not at the loss of the tome. Maybe we will get a battalion with the malign portents stuff and so not have to make the choice between the two artefacts!

    Finally got some more game time vs kharadron overlords, and I have enough spirits n hexes not to run the 2nd Mourngul. played duality of death, Mourngul grabbed one objective and sat on it all game, eating a few arkanauts to heal up, Hexwraiths and my banshees died early on and it was left of the spirit hosts to do most of the hard work taking out two frigates and 10 thunderers. if I can bring myself to do it and make more hosts then dropping some more Hexwraiths for them could be the way forward.
  14. Lets Chat: Flesh Eater Courts

    Am I realistically going to need more than one Crypt infernal courtier or Crypt haunter courtier?
