    Do you ever put this army on the table, or is it purely for competition and display?

    Please explain how this is in any way different than arcane bolt. Both spells explicitly reference a distance to the caster. Same as the ridiculous argument that endless spells can't be cast through the portal. Substitute the second portal for the caster when measuring for your spell and it works perfectly, no questions asked. People are going out of their way trying to make it more complicated than it needs to be.

    To add to this, while I think Lens is quite strong, you take it at great opportunity cost. Rather than bringing an artifact that helps you execute a plan you are defending against something that will wreck you. This means that your opponent has spent probably their only artifact to defend against something that, if you're taking an allied wizard, isn't even your game plan.

    It's very good at screening too. Whenever I play against it there is always that voice in the back of my head warning me to stay away from the potential devastation. As far as tools to kill lens bearers, maybe I'm misunderstanding, but I'm not sure how orb helps kill them. Edit: never mind, I see now, it does d6 mortals so there is a good chance it will still inflict mortals despite the d3 reduction.
  5. My collection has been built from 1/2 the starter set (now Start Collecting: thunderstrike brotherhood). 1/2 of blight war. 1/2 of Soul Wars. I have added other heroes and units depending on what I felt like playing, but I'm a big fan of variety. Stormcast are AoS at its core. No tricks or gimmicks, just a huge bag of tools, which individually are fairly generic, but can be put together to handle any situation. My favorite thing about stormcast is that I can build any list and still go toe to toe with top tier armies. I might not win with a less than optimal list, but I'm always in the game. There is only one box that I say you absolutely must have and that is Judicators. They are pricey at 160 points, but they're battleline and can camp an objective like nothing else in the game. And there are few things as rewarding as rolling a 6 on a shockbolt bow.

    Astreia and LAoD have identical equipment...

    I like this idea. Most if your army is say, Celestial Vindicators, but your strike force is Vandus Hammerhand, Gavriel and Steelhearts Champions. Could be very thematic.
  8. I'm not really sure how the -1 save debuff is crippling to stormcast. Even if there is a unit in cover it's just a 1/6 chance they'll get it. And transmutation of lead is OK, but I'm not really sure either of those things are the deciding factors in you killing 1k of your opponent's models on turn 1. As a stormcast player, I would consider those two effects slight disadvantages.
  9. This has been my experience with most things in AoS 2. Spell portal has felt really bad for the game. It feels like rules now have to be evaluated against whether they will break the game via portal.

    I think it looks like a brutal 1k list, but I question the plan. Cavalry's biggest asset is their mobility. Putting them in the air and relying upon a 9" charge wastes their mobility.

    Yeah, I was thinking they both had to be deployed using the astral compass but I read it again and they both just have to HAVE an astral compass.

    I think soulstrike has the potential to be good. Everyone talks about using longstrikes with Anvils, but a soulstrike will drop in close, blast away a rank and then next turn you can use anvil CA to continue the carnage. The only reservation I have is that your hunters have to be on the board a whole turn to trigger the battalion ability.

    My lamps aren't bright enough and my phone camera is junk. This is my WIP Morathi.

    I made a light box, but haven't used it for miniatures yet. It was pretty easy. A cardboard box and piece of poster board, a white sheet, a hot glue gun and whatever lamp you have lying around. I'll give it a shot real quick and post the pic.

    Your photography is always in a really yellow light on a brown desk so it's hard to tell...😂
