    Let's chat : Blades of Khorne!

    I take that as meaning you sacrifice them by using your points on something else. One page back there is a YouTube screenshot: There is nothing about having to choose before the battle which table you're using

    We don't lose the allegiance abilities as such, we just have to choose between spending the bloodtithe points on summoning OR our usual bloodtithe table. So basically it has made our bloodtithe points more flexible. That said, other armies seem to have way better options where it isn't tied into an existing allegiance ability. There are a couple of screen shots of the book where it is written out if you go back a page or two in this thread

    Let's chat : Blades of Khorne!

    So time to dig up some old questions about goretide battalion. I remember it being a pretty heated debate back when BoK first dropped as to a few points but I can't remember if it was ever resolved or FAQd because ghb17 killed the battalion. 1. Can I get a single drop army that has "any number of additional khorne bloodbound" units in it? 2. Can my MLoK pile in 8" when he isn't in combat? ie charge 8" in the hero phase. 3. Do all the mortal battalions count as khorne bloodhound battalions or was that some kind reference to old book battalions? I'm sure there was more in the debate but can't recall. I think it would be good to clear this up because the point drops make the gore tide (slightly) more viable again

    Let's chat : Blades of Khorne!

    Ok guys, so I just ordered skaarac and mazarall from forgeworld and I'm trying to build a monster list around them. This is what I have so far: Skaarac - 500, general Mazarall - 360 Bloodstoker - 80 Bloodstoker - 80 Bloodstoker - 80 10x bloodreavers - 70, meatripper 10x bloodreavers - 70, meatripper 10x bloodreavers - 70, meatripper 2x khorgorath - 160 2x khorgorath - 160 1x khorgorath - 80 Soulgrinder - 280, warpmetal blade 1990 pts. So it has some serious alpha strike potential but is otherwise probably going to crumble easily. I'm considering dropping some khorgies for the extra troops. Any thoughts?

    Let's chat : Maggotkin of Nurgle

    The book only specifies slaves to darkness models with mark of tzeentch being ineligible, have a look at the punctuation. If sayl can be taken as a slaves to darkness ally, GS can be taken as an everchosen ally.

    What is the Best Grand Alliance?

    What is the Best Grand Alliance?

    The only problem with having khorne and nurgle is they are both melee centric armies. you would probably be better off mixing something with range or high mobility (personally I don't rate khorne as high mobility) with either one of them. i play khorne and if I were to build a grand alliance list I would probably add in tzeentch skyfires, high mobility and ranged damage. stormcast are all rounders already, not many gaps to fill. The only thing I would add is some form of magic, which you could just ally in and still get stormcast allegiance. This is more a conversation for the order forum though.

    I would tend to agree, but then he is left with 1 too many units for the battalion and I can't see a way to drop something else without doing a full redesign. otherwise I think the list is overall pretty good.

    Cheapest battleline options for mixed chaos

    Cheapest I know of are marauders, 60pts for 10. there might be something skaven that fits the bill though edit: just had a look, ungors are 60 as well

    Nurgle or khorne

    Sure can, just means you have to use generic chaos allegiance abilities.

    @ledha Hero sniping options, I would say slaughter priests and skull canons would be your only real options. They don't really have much in the way of sniping either so would probably work with the priests

    I was also considering dropping the stoker for an extra khorgorath. Do you think the drop in speed is worth the extra damage? My korgi's have always performed well. At least since the points drop and damage bump

    Let's chat : Blades of Khorne!

    So I have an upcoming friendly match, 1250pts I play pure bloodbound (for now) and he is bringing a predominately daemon tzeentch list. This is the list I've come up with so far: Mighty lord of khorne - General, slaughterborn bloodsecrator - brazen rune bloodstoker slaughter priest - killing frenzy 10x blood warriors - goreaxes, banner, glaive 10x blood warriors - goreaxes, banner, glaive 5x skullreapers - daemonblades, banner, soultearer 3x skullcrushers - bloodglaives, banner, horn 1x khorgorath All I know for sure is that he has a Lord of change and a changeling. any thoughts/tips on the list would be appreciated

    On an unrelated note, I played my first game with some skullreapers and holy ******. I can see why they got a point increase! chewed through 30+ skeletons without breaking a sweat (game ended before they could finish them off)

    Good point, I think the bigger factor is you only need to lose one model and you're down to d3 mortal wounds from charges
