  1. Lets Chat: Legions of Nagash

    It's the WAAC cup of tea. Personally I refuse to use them, ever. And I will be unhappy playing against you if you do, as well. Too much for only 100pts.
  2. Lets Chat: Legions of Nagash

    Alright, chit chatted with some of my friends on list building, I think I've come down to one that I'm pretty fond of. I can even swap over to other Legions with this one and see if I like them, because Night is looking pretty nice with a +1 to my skeleton's saves and the whole ambushing thing. We'll see. How's it look? And I know I have room to make the Wight King a vampire but I dunno if I want to lol Allegiance: Grand Host of NagashNecromancer (110)- Artefact: Grave-sand Timeglass - Lore of the Deathmages: Fading VigourWight King with Baleful Tomb Blade (120)- General- Trait: Lord of Nagashizzar 40 x Skeleton Warriors (280)- Ancient Spears2 x Morghast Harbingers (220)- Spirit Halberds5 x Dire Wolves (60)10 x Grave Guard (160)- Wight Blades & Crypt ShieldsTotal: 950 / 1000Allies: 0 / 200Wounds: 82

    Yeah, I can see your point. Hm. Vamp and two necromancers is solid. Then I'm either going with 40 skeletons 10 wolves and 2 Harbingers OR 40 skeletons 15 grave guard and 5 black knights No reason I can't try out both though I suppose.
  4. Lets Chat: Legions of Nagash

    I heard about the nerf, but it's not that bad imo. 12" is generous enough, but I doubt it'll work for consecutive turns. I'm actually playing with the idea of going Sacrament for 'Mastery of Death' which would give me a free 7" move to units in my Wight King bubble. That might help. And yeah, that's been a thorn in my side, maneuverability. I like Morghasts and Wolves and they definitely fill that gap. And I know GG are kinda not the bees knees but I love the models a ton. I'm balancing cool theme vs. competitive strength it feels.
  5. Lets Chat: Legions of Nagash

    So I've just about got everything in my army built (40 skeletons, 10 grave guard, 2 necromancers and vampire) and am considering picking up a Barrow Lords box to add to my Blood Queen box and make my 1000pt Deathrattle army complete. Does this list look fun for someone new to AoS? A good mix of stuff and decent competitive strength? I do intend on running into Deathmarch, later on, with 10-15 knights and more skeletons. It sounds rad as hell. Allegiance: Grand Host of Nagash Vampire Lord (140) - General - Mount: Flying Horror - Trait: Lord of Nagashizzar - Lore of the Vampires: Amaranthine Orb Necromancer (110) - Artefact: Ossific Diadem - Lore of the Deathmages: Fading Vigour Necromancer (110) - Lore of the Deathmages: Overwhelming Dread 40 x Skeleton Warriors (280) - Ancient Spears 15 x Grave Guard (240) - Great Wight Blades 5 x Black Knights (120) Total: 1000 / 1000 Allies: 0 / 200 Wounds: 80
  6. Lets Chat: Legions of Nagash

    Yeah I planned to use them alongside the other ones, not the whole squad of skeletons. Everyone has different sized skulls too, yknow. They'll probably look better when painted, too.
  7. Lets Chat: Legions of Nagash

    So I got my flaming skulls in the mail. How do you think they look so far? They're a bit weedier than the normal skulls. I'm not sure how I feel about them right now.
  8. Lets Chat: Legions of Nagash

    Well this is my v2.0 of that list. I do plan on upping the skeletons to 40, but just starting out, I think this'll be just fine. I already have the 20 skeletons anyway, maybe drop the Cairn Wraith for 10 more skeletons?

  9. Lets Chat: Legions of Nagash

    So I'm trying to break the 1000pt mold of skeleton spam with LoN. This is what I came up with, focusing on target saturation. Morghast and Vampire (and maybe the dogs/spirits) ambush, the skeletons and whoever is left hug the necromancer and do their best. I'm not too sure it'll be any better than the 40x Skeleton lists, but it looks a lot more fun to paint/model/play against.

  10. Lets Chat: Legions of Nagash

    So I've got the Blood Queen box but I want to get something to fill out the army. I can either go Deathrattle heavy and do a list like this Allegiance: Grand Host of NagashWight King with Baleful Tomb Blade(120)- General- Trait: Lord of Nagashizzar Necromancer (110)- Artefact: Ossific Diadem - Lore of the Deathmages: Fading VigourNecromancer (110)- Lore of the Deathmages: Decrepify40 x Skeleton Warriors (280)- Ancient Spears10 x Grave Guard (160)- Great Wight Blades2 x Morghast Harbingers (220)- Spirit HalberdsTotal: 1000 / 1000Allies: 0 / 200Wounds: 77 Or I can do a Nighthaunt heavy list like this. Allegiance: Grand Host of Nagash Knight of Shrouds (120)- GeneralNecromancer (110)- Artefact: Ossific Diadem - Lore of the Deathmages: Fading VigourNecromancer (110)- Lore of the Deathmages: DecrepifyCairn Wraith (60)20 x Skeleton Warriors (160)- Ancient Blades3 x Spirit Hosts (120)5 x Hexwraiths (160)10 x Grave Guard (160)- Great Wight BladesTotal: 1000 / 1000Allies: 0 / 200Wounds: 68 Which of these looks better, comp wise? Which looks more fun?
  11. Starting a Death army

    Yeah I've been mulling over my color ideas for a bit, looking at tutorials and whatnot. I like the idea of 'ghostly' skeletons and the like, but it looks a little too samey across the whole army, imo. That may be the 'kinda wanna play Nighthaunt' in me talking though lol. If I did that, I'd still do the weapons/armor as something metallic, of course. I can't just paint an army one color and be done. I've not actually seen a 'ghost skeleton' army done, yet, which I find kind of odd. I think if I was going to go standard, I'd go with something like this. With nice purple effects and really old looking armor. I also really like the old brown-looking bone color he went with. Not sold on the glowing eyes though lol.
  12. Starting a Death army

    Plus I can get nearly the whole army in the Blood Queen box. Thanks a lot. Not super fond of wanting to run like, 120 skeletons at once, but a brick of 40 will be very hard to kill. I kind of want to run some Dire Wolves as the Goblin spider riders, without the rider. I think spiders fit skeletons more than zombie wolves.
  13. Starting a Death army

    Haha I noticed that too. This is my alternative list with some knights and a corpse cart for +1 to cast and reroll Invocation. Also, the Wight on a horse!

  14. Starting a Death army

    And then my Nighthaunt list Allegiance: NighthauntKnight of Shrouds (120)- General- Trait: Cloaked in Shadow Cairn Wraith (60)- Artefact: Pendant of the Fell Wind Cairn Wraith (60)6 x Spirit Hosts (240)5 x Hexwraiths (160)Mourngul (350)Total: 990 / 1000Allies: 0 / 200Wounds: 51 I'd have to drop the Mourngul and fiddle with adding some Dire Wolves or skeletons and whatnot. I think if I do Nighthaunt, I'm sort of stuck with 1000pts, it seems. Which isn't bad. It just requires a lot of fiddling and losing out on the Mourngul etx
  15. Starting a Death army

    Yeah that was my plan at first, because it seemed like I could get almost everything Deathrattle/Grand Host I wanted in the Blood Queen box. This is my lost for that idea. Allegiance: DeathWight King with Baleful Tomb Blade(120)- General- Trait: Lord of Nagashizzar Necromancer (110)- Artefact: Ossific Diadem - Lore of the Deathmages: Fading VigourNecromancer (110)- Lore of the Deathmages: Decrepify40 x Skeleton Warriors (280)- Ancient Spears10 x Grave Guard (160)- Great Wight Blades2 x Morghast Harbingers (220)- Spirit HalberdsTotal: 1000 / 1000Allies: 0 / 200Wounds: 77 I'm just not 100% sold on skele-spam. And at the same time, I don't really know how to run Nighthaunt past 1000pts without just spamming, either. LoN opens up options for Nighthaunt, but it kinda forces me to get a bunch of non Nighthaunt stuff, too.
