  2. The benefits of Battalions are very significant in Matched Play. You can get unique bonuses for your units, you have more options in deployment since you can drop the battalion units all at once or piecemeal, you are more likely to finish deploying first, and you get an additional artifact. GHB17 recognized the power of Battalions and increased the cost of nearly every battalion in the game significantly. I think Battalions are a great system, but a lot of potentially cool and fun Battalions are either difficult or impossible to field in a regular Matched Play game because of their high point costs. This is particularly true for Battalions formed of other Battalions, like the Sylvaneth Wargroves or Stormcast Stormhosts. In addition, armies without access to many competitive Battalions (like Grand Alliance armies and the factions without a Battletome) are left in the dust while other armies can stack multiple artifacts and have all sorts of cool abilities. 40k killed Formations in 8th edition but the core idea of the system (ie: getting specific bonuses for having specific units) lives on in the Command Point and Stratagem systems. Layered on top of the "Chapter Tactics" system providing thematic bonuses, this creates a tremendous amount of options, customization, and playstyles for both casual and competitive play. I believe that Battalions are meant to fill the same role in AOS, but they are currently too cumbersome to use. I would like to see Battalions and Artifacts cost an alternate form of points - for the sake of discussion let's call them "Battalion Points". You could have 100 Battalion Points in Vanguard, 200 in Battlehost, and so on. A weaker battalion may cost 60, while a stronger one may cost up to 200. Artifacts could all cost 40. Rather than choosing between bringing more units or bringing a Battalion, players would choose between making their heroes stronger or a powerful battalion or a weaker battalion and 1-2 artifacts. This would open up a lot more variety in building lists and make every currently printed Battalion a lot more enticing since you wouldn't be hamstrung by unit choices. TL;DR: 1. I am not suggesting battalions should be free 2. Battalions and Artifacts could cost an alternate point system 3. Weak battalions cost less, stronger battalions cost more 4. If you don't want to use any Battalions then you can spend all your Battalion Points on Artifacts instead What do you think?

  13. LVO Top 10 Army Lists

    So the Las Vegas Open Age of Sigmar Championships was held over the weekend in, you guessed it, Las Vegas. Warhammer Live and the Warhammer Community team were there in attendance and you can check out all the coverage over on the Warhammer Live Twitch channel. Las Vegas Open Age of Sigmar Championships Before we get into the army lists, a big congratulations to Scott Reed (the tournament organiser), Elric Edge (of the Rolling Bad podcast) and everyone else who worked so hard to put on an excellent event. 90+ gamers, including some travelling Brits, having a great weekend of Age of Sigmar. Now the Las Vegas Open Age of Sigmar Championships were held over 7 rounds, using 2,000 point armies in General’s Handbook 2017 scenarios. The pack can be found here and here. Las Vegas Open – the results I don’t have the full results, or all the award placings, but Samuel Valdez (who attended the event) kindly sent me through the top 10 and the lists. You can also access them through the Best Coast Pairings app. So the final standings were: Andrew Standiferd – Vanguard Wing James Thomas – Changehost Tony Moore – Changehost Oliver Gandouet – Mixed Order Michael Burch – Skyfires Joe Krier – Changehost Bill Souza – Nurgle Jarrett Zazuetta – “Kroak-nado” Jeff Paynter – Skyfires Mike Scaletti – Gore Pilgrims You can find their lists here: https://aosshorts.com/las-vegas-open-top-10-age-sigmar-lists/

  15. New year, new me, new attempt to keep updating this blog regularly! Last weekend I attended Heat 1 in Warhammer World as part of the Grand Tournament for Age of Sigmar. I thought I'd note down a few observations from the weekend. First off I'd like to compliment all 5 of my opponenets - Rob Symes, Sam Wilson, Matt Lyons, Simon Froley and Stu Orman. Each one was a pleasure to play against, and each game came right down to the wire. The game against Simon's Ironjawz was a real nailbiter, coming down to the final throw of the dice. Secondly, it never ceases to amaze at the sheer breath of hobby and skill on show in the armies. I was pleasantly surprised to find such a wide field of armies at the event - everything from grots and a gutbuster gunline, to stormcast and tzeentch and everything in between! The difference in the level of hobby on show compared to that I'm usually exposed to was truly inspiring, and I came away from the event possessed of a drive to push my army painting skills, and try for something truly spectacular as my next army. As of now I have no idea what shape that will take but I'll keep you all updated (or at least I'll try to!) The list I took was a Flesh Eater Court force I'd been working on since the book was released. I'd brought it to the 6 nations event last year and had some sucess with it. I had a fairly good idea of what the list could and couldn't do, but mostly I was happy with how it had turned out from a painting standpoint so I decided to bring it on that basis. Allegiance: Flesh Eater Courts - Delusion: The Grand Tournament Leaders Crypt Infernal Courtier (140) - General - Command Trait : Dark Wizardry Abhorrant Ghoul King on Terrorgheist (400) Abhorrant Ghoul King on Zombie Dragon (440) Crypt Ghast Courtier (80) Units 9 x Crypt Flayers (480) 10 x Crypt Ghouls (100) 30 x Crypt Ghouls (300) Reinforcement Points (60) The reinforcement points would be used to summon either 5 wolves or a cairn wraith to grab an objective late game (something I forgot in 4 of the 5 games!) But enough of that, moving onto the meat of the event, the games themselves. I wont go through the games blow by blow, but here are a few highlights: Game 1: Total conquest. Rob Symes and Seraphon First game was against Mr Honest Wargamer himself, Rob Symes. Rob was bringing a seraphon army, revolving around an engine of the gods, two bastilodons and a large block of Kroxigor. Having never played against Seraphon, I was completely unprepared for the speed and sheer bonkers tricks they could pull out. I misdeployed leaving my terrorgheist exposed on one flank, with only a unit of horrors in support. As a result, he was promptly machine gunned off the board by a teleporting pack of razordons before he got to get his claws wet! On the opposite flank, Rob's kroxigor exploded into my lines, wiping out my unit of 9 flayers and making short work of my zombie dragon. The army crumbled shortly after, and Rob walked away with a well deserved major win. Highlight of the game: By the end of the game, Rob had managed to activate the engine of the gods in each of his 3 turns, giving him a total of 6 turns by the games end. Conversly, i'd only managed 3 Game 2: Scorched Earth. Sam Wilson's Beastclaw Raiders this game was another first, as I'd never actually fought a pure beastclaw raiders army. Sam's army was absolutely gorgeous to look at, and had all the big monsters you'd expect to see - a pair of thundertusks flanking a stonehorn. Straight away this put me at a disadvantage as my main source of damage for heavy armour - my flayers mortal wounds - was turned off by the thundertusk's cold aura effect. As a result I had to rely on my own monsters to take down his, while my flayers adopted the role of objective claimers. I learned from the previous game, and carefully deployed my ghouls to screen my own objectives as best I could. Having my courtier hidden at the back allowed me to keep my lines intact, and as a result I was able to secure my objectives while attacking Sam's flank with the flayers. As a result they managed to punch through his lines while my terrorgheist and zombie dragon slugged it out with his larger beasts. My terrorgheist was probably the man of the match here, tanking the damage from two thundertusks and a unit of yhetees, before healing himself back up and charging the last corner of the board to secure the final objective. I managed to pull off a win at the end, but it was a great game against a gorgeous army and really nice guy. Highlight of the game: The entire game was a feast for the eyes, but having Sam's hunter sprinting back and forth across his backline, javellining any beasts that came close enough, was particularly memorable Game 3: Knife to the Heart. Matt Lyons with Stormcast Eternals The final game was against Matt Lyons of Pro Painted Podcast and Black Sun fame. Matt was using a striking stormcast army in a gorgeous yellow and black colour scheme, with a unit of Kharadron endrinriggers as allies. From the start I knew I was at a disadvantage, as one major weakness of my force is that it does not compete in the shooting phase. As a result i could either play for the minor, play defensively and hope to eke out a win. Or I could go agressive, throw everything I had at the opposing army and hope for a win. Given I wanted to give my opponent a game and I'm never one to play against theme, I went for the latter. My wave of screaming flesh eaters swarmed across the board, crashed into Matt's lines in the centre of the board, and subsequently was routed by the stormcast. The endrinriggers were particularly impressive, using the grapnel launcher to get to places I thought safe. Matt knew exactly how to counter my army, removing the courtiers to stop the army coming back, then whittling the remaining characters down until all that remained were a few lowly ghouls, who were no doubt left wondering where their bigger more imposing friends had gone to! Matt was a pleasure to play against, and we had a great chat about the projects we were working on and future projects we were planning. Matt took a well deserved major win from the game and the first day drew to a close with a Major Win and 2 Major losses under my belt. I'll cover the second day and overall results in a subsequent post, along with my final thoughts on the event overall, as well as my plans for future events. As always, any comments or observations are welcome and appreciated!
  16. New to AoS/Stormcast - Army help?

    Hi everyone I'm wanting to get into AoS and it has been probably a good 15+ years since I've played any sort of warhammer so I figure I am coming into it as a complete newbie again. After looking over all of the various models I have fallen in love with the Stormcast Eternals and was looking for some advice on whether my planned out starter army is decent. I'm looking to have fun and be somewhat balanced so that I can both win and lose Also a question for stuff like Staunch Defender, does the entire unit need to be within the 6" of the Castellant or just a single model for the bonus to apply? Finally any suggestions/tips/ideas on how I would build this out to a 2000 point list? I'm pretty lost with the battalion stuff and as far as looks go about the only models I really don't like are the Vanguard Hunters. Love pretty much everything else however. This is what I am thinking about starting with: Lord-Castellant (100) - General - Command Trait : Staunch Defender - Artefact : Mirrorshield - Mystic Light : Lantern of the Tempest Lord -Relictor (80) - Prayer : Bless Weapons 10 x Liberators (200) -Warhammers - 2 x Grandhammers 10 x Liberators (200) -Warhammers - 2 x Grandhammers 5 x Judicators (160) -Skybolt Bows 5 x Judicators (160) -Skybolt Bows 3 x Prosecutors with Stormcall Javelins (100) - 1 x Stormsurge Tridents
  17. New Stormcast player - advice needed

    Hi all, my name’s Matthew and am new to Stormcast and looking for a bit of a steer👍🏻 Have been playing Blades of Khorne for a while and whilst love them, I can’t help but look at SCE! What kind of principles or things would you suggest when making a list? With my Blades hat on I get practice is huge, and whilst I am into rule of cool too, there’s lots of tasty armies in my meta so my list needs to be able to handle itself.. In terms of build, I can’t seem to get past Liberators and what such good value they seem to be... I think I want a solid block of 20-30 of them. Also 1-2 Venators would be handy as there’s so much aura / buff / synergy from Hero’s, it would be great to have a tool to use and try and snipe them out early doors.. Any and all help would be much appreciated, cheers👍🏻
  18. Game 8 Blades of Khorne versus Fyreslayers and Stormcast

    Hi all, game 8 with my Blades of Khorne versus a mate called Mike and his Fyreslayers and Stormcast Order army. We played Battle for the Pass, 2000 points and matched play. This was a great game, as have never played the mission or either army before. I went in with zero expectations of pulling anything from the game lol, save a bit of dignity… Mike ran: Runesmiter, Battlesmith, 2 x 20 Volkite Berserkers, 10 Hearthguard Berserkers, Magmadroth, 2 x Venators, 2 x 5 Judicators, 5 x Liberators and 2 x Fulminators. When Mike was taking me through his army, or what some of the effects or features are I was like wow how will I ever get through these Fyreslayers 4+ rerolling save against Mortals doh?! At one stage, some units were getting a save, then a save against mortals or damage, and then rerolling that save wowsers?!?!? I used the same list have been using for last 5 odd games now, and was a Gore Pilgrims Warscroll, backed up by 2 x 30 Bloodletters and 2 Bloodthirsters. A key difference this time however was Harvester of Skulls on the WoKBT, and the Banner of Khorne on the Bloodsecrator. I dropped first and went first, as had only 6 drops. My deployment was standard, Bloodletters central left and right of middle, WoKBT in middle by Bloodsecrator, IRBT on the outside of my right Bloodletter unit, Blood Warriors on flanks, and Bloodreavers covering my rear and my harem of Hero’s. Turn One; I go first= • Everything powers up, Portal opens, Killing Frenzy on both Bloodletter units • Everything moved up, Bloodletters central, WoKBT moves across to middle, and the IRBT moves to right flank • Bloodreavers continuing to protect rear and characters • Bloodsecrator trying to hide behind a rock in middle • A nice quick and simple turn, scored 5 points as held both objectives in no-man’s land and my deployment zone one Chaos = 5 v Order = 0 • Mike had deployed his Fulminators, Venator and Judicators on his right flank, a centre full of the bulk of his Fyreslayers backed up with Judicators, and a single Venator on his left • All his Fyreslayer Hero’s did their auras, command traits and so-on… The biggie was most units were now immune to Battleshock • Mike had cleverly positioned both Venators on his wide flanks, and moved them up to be able to snipe on my characters in the middle • The Runesmiter and 20 Volkite Berserkers teleport 9” behind me and threatens my Bloodreavers and Hero base • Shooting, and the HUGE news was both Venators missed with the super sniper arrows!!!!! This saved my Bloodsecrator, and my IRBT, which had already lost 5 wounds to pesky Judicators • He charged his Fulminators into my Bloodletters on my left flank, doing around 7 wounds • Bloodletters with 20+ unit size and Killing Frenzy were doing mortals on 4+’ and mortal’ed the Fulminators off • Mike scored his base objective Chaos = 5 v Order = 1 Turn Two; Big news lol I managed to pull-off going first… • Powered everything up, opened Portal, and only managed 1 Killing Frenzy this time, onto some Bloodletters in my centre • Lord of the Blood Hunt on the WoKBT • Shock lol, a Slaughterpriest failed Bloodboil even with rerolls… I was hoping to dent the unit of Berserkers behind me • Everything moved up, Blood Warriors stayed near the no-man’s land objectives, and all my Hero’s bunched around the Bloodreavers in my rear, anticipating a lucky 8” charge from the Fyreslayers • No shooting really, 2 wounds on the Magmadroth with the WoKBT Bloodflail • Combat – we had loads of Khorne charges it was all rocking off lol!!! • On my left, Bloodletters into the Judicators (that were behind the killed Fulminators) • In the centre, WoKBT into Volkite Beserkers, Bloodletters into Hearthguard, IRBT into Hearthguard and the Runesmith • Activate my WoKBT first, with 8 attacks and does 20 wounds / kills 14 of the 20 Volkite Berserkers • During the combat phase, Bloodletters kill Liberators, Bloodletters kill 9 Hearthguard, IRBT does 2 wounds on Runesmith and last 2 Hearthguard • Mikes centre is crumbling Chaos = 10 v Order = 1 • Mike does some clever shenanigan with removing casualties and makes room for his Magmadroth to get properly in combat • A stupid axe from a stupid wounded Runesmith lol, takes the head off the wounded IRBT (poor BT everything was shooting it lol) • The Venator on his right flank moves into combat • The Volkite Berserkers in my deployment zone move up ad pull of a plucky 8” charge into 2 Slaughterpriests and 10 Bloodreavers • The centre and all the carnage continues to go my way, however the wounded Magmadroth continues smashing me with its tail and blood at the end of combat phase • I lose 5 Bloodreavers to the Volkite Berserkers and Mike outnumbers me so scores my base objective Chaos = 10 v Order = 5 Turn Three; We both needed it, however Mike was running out of units in his board half… Blood for the Blood God – we get to go first again… • Everything powers up • A wounded ******-face Slaughterpriest fails his 2nd Bloodboil prayer and does 3 mortal wounds to himself and kills himself lol ******! • HUGE game changer, sitting on 6 Blood Tithe points, at the end of my Hero phase I burn them all for APOPLECTIC FRENZY and piled with WoKBT and killed off the Magmadroth • This was Huge as it meant then in my movement phase I was able to fly onto his base objective and kill off the 3 Judicators sitting close by THE END… We called it there, as I was 19-5 by the end of my turn. Mike had a single Venator in his half, and about 10 Volkite Berserkers scrapping over by base objective. Depending how that scrap went in his following turn it could have been perhaps 19-9? He had no way to score objectives and catch up, and in the middle I still had a decent sized Bloodletter unit, another unit with about 6 Bloodletters, my WoKBT and both Blood Warrior units. Then in my half, I had a Slaughterpriest, Bloodstoker, BloodSecrator and 5 BloodReavers. Awesome game, Mike was a great opponent, huge carnage, and totally unexpected result, genuinely still shocked as I write this lol. Continued to learn loads about the game and my army.
  19. Blades of Khorne - 280 points spare..!?

    Hey all, this is my Blades of Khorne / Gore Pilgrims list which I have had some great fun and success with.. However - what are your thoughts?? Keep the Insensate Rage Bloodthirster (260 points), or swap the big fella for 10 Chosen of Khorne (280 points), or for 2 x 3 Mighty Skullcrushers (280 points)..?

  21. Game 6 new BoK army v Slaanesh Slaves of Darkness

    Hi all, Game 6 with my new-ish Blades of Khorne army versus my friend Tom and his all Slaanesh Slaves of Darkness Chaos Army.... Great game and a Chaos Legion face off - Khorne v Slaanesh, rival Daemon hatred but who won?!!!!?? It was a great and close game, and we played Starstrike mission, 2000 points matched play. Tom was running a Slaanesh Invaders list with; Sayl, an Exalted Keeper of Secrets (EKoS), a Chaos Lord on Daemon Mount, 10 Slaanesh Chosen, a Herald on Exalted Chariot, 2 x 5 Hell Striders and 2 x 30 Daemonettes. My list was the same as I took the last 3 games, and is below. Tom's list was a great and solid looking list, tons of rend and and super fast moving.. It mirrored in a way my Blades list, as a bit of a glass cannon in parts, quick and hard hitting with lots of rend, but a majority 5+ save. My deployment was standard again. Central blocks of Bloodletters, Both BT's central, all characters central ish, Blood Reavers covering my characters and rear, and Blood Warriors on each flanks. I took first turn with only 6 drops. Here's some of the highlights and learnings: -Turn 1 I powered up my IRBT and he shot out the ranks and was in Toms face straight away, catching him a little off guard. In total I managed a 24"+ move run and charge (10" charge helped) and went into a unit of 30 Daemonettes on my right flank -The IRBT had Crimson Crown on him, and as he had 2 Killing Frenzy's also it means hitting in 2's and extra attacks on 4's instead of 6's... He killed 23 Daemonettes in damage and then the remaining 7 died / fled in Battleshock -His remaining 7 Daemonettes before fleeing, chipped some wounds off the IRBT -This left Toms left flank open a little, and left my IRBT a bit vulnerable but it was a gamble and a risk -Tom made clever use of the Hellstriders and the Exalted Daemon's -1 to hit, as at some points I was at -2 to hit, and made a huge impact on my army and buffs -I inevitably lost my IRBT to the EKoS and whilst I got 2 Blood Tithe points from doing the whole flank attack thing, I sacrificed 260 points for 270 points but took off a unit of Daemonettes. They were a huge threat and can run and assault would of swamped my units in rend attacks and extra attacks on 6's -The Stars / objectives fell in the centre, and on my right in both our deployment areas -I went first in turns 1 and 2, and Tom went first in turns 3,4 and 5 -Having not learnt my lesson lol, next turn I threw my WoKBT into his second unit of 30 Daemonettes and did 18 wounds and earned a Blood Tithe point (Immense Power and Mark of the Bloodreaper) -The Blood Tithe table is great and levels 3-5 are huge and can make a real difference, especially as you can do it at any stage in your opponents hero phase.. A couple of times I burned them to allow a free move, of to pile in and attack in his hero phase -Slaughterpriests did nothing lol.. Turn 2 they both failed their Bloodboil prayer even with rerolls, and then turn 3 they both failed again even with rerolls!!!!! I really needed it turn 3 too, as I could of killed off the EKoS and freed up a unit doh! -The Bloodletters were great and did there job, as they killed off the ENoSin the end and anything else they faced In the end 2 Hellstriders and about 6 Daemonettes camped on objectives in Turn 5 and got 10 points.. Tom was clever as the Hellstriders fell back out of combat, but forwards then moved and ran next turn to get on the other objective in my deployment area.. Had I rolled a 3 on the WoKBT to wound for his Bloodflail I would of killed them off it!! Likewise in combat the WoKBT killed some Daemonettes and Battleshock would of killed them off, but.... He rolled a 1 and 5 odd came back!!!!! That sealed the game there lol... In the end it was a 24-19 Victory to Slaanesh, and ended my 3 game win streak lol. It was a great game, great opponent too.. Model wise I had quite a lot left, including nearly a full strength Bloodletter unit, WoKBT, Characters etc, whereas Tom had about 6 Daemonettes and 2 Hellstriders left... I just ran out of turns and mobility! I am not going to change anything in my list, think it's a great list just user-error at the minute lol! Am really happy with the army synergy, and the Bloodletters are just badass they go through anything you point them at! The learning and practicing continues!
  22. Whilst I am hopeful for 2018 I am getting a sense from community members over here is the USA that the lack of releases for Matched Play AoS will lead to a drop in players and more people straying from the game. Have you felt this in your community? Are you feeling this? I wanted to get a broader outlook on this situation some feel where we have not had a Battletome release since April and is this causing a slowdown in players? Look forward to hearing others thoughts on this.

  24. Game 7 new BoK army v Slaanesh Invaders REMATCH

    Hi all, game 7 with my new-ish (can I still say that now?) Blades of Khorne army, versus Tom Meaker and his Slaanesh Invaders Slaves of Darkness army… REMATCH from last week! Over the weekend whilst drinking responsibly I challenged him to a rematch and grudge game lol!! Was this a wise move – who would win this epic Daemon Legion show-down? Lol grab a cuppa, this is a long one…!?!? We played 2000 points, matched play and Knife to the Heart mission. I took my usual Gore Pilgrims list, backed up with double BT’s that I have run for last 4 odd games now… Tom took the same list as last week with a slight tweak; Sayl, an Exalted Keeper of Secrets (EKoS), a Chaos Lord on Daemon Mount, 10 Slaanesh Chosen, 2 x 5 Hellstriders, 20 Daemonettes and 2 x 30 Daemonettes. I still think this a cracking list with loads of buffs. Highlights and learnings were= - I went first as I only had 6 drops - In the end T1 I went first, T2 he did, T3 I did, T4 he did, T5 I did - This time my deployment was slightly different, as I had both BT’s apart, with the WoKBT more on my left, and the IRBT more right centre - Bloodletters were more off centre too, with the normal characters centre of my off-centre deployment, and Blood Reavers to the rear and Blood Warriors to the flanks - Tom deployed his big blocks of Daemonettes mainly centre but perhaps around 30” away, with a meat shield of a line of 20 Daemonettes in front around 26” away (I think he was scared of a T1 charge lol?!) - T1 and T2 for me was little action, as I wanted to try something new / different and instead I moved units more around the flanks and opened up my centre, having a big block of Bloodletters sitting there - This movement and tactic really confused Tom lol, and he spent ages trying to figure out what I was trying to do - His T2 he went for the trap, and moved some Hellstriders and teleported his choppy Chosen onto my left flank aiming for a charge on my bait and WoKBT. He also moved his scary EKoS from the middle towards my right flank, which meant he had 2 blocks of Demonettes in the centre unsupported - T2 he charged his Chaos Lord into my Blood Warriors on my right flank, and supported them / debuffed me with his Hellstriders and -1 to hit - T3 I open my Portal for the first time, and I swung my WoKBT from the left flank into the middle aiming for his Daemonettes, and leaving his units on my left a little out of it for a turn, though I only managed a 1” run lol!!! My plan was Lord of the Blood Hunt on himself and to do a mega run and charge and fly over to the back of his lines and attack from the rear… - I then managed to fail some central and key charges on my 30 Bloodletters and my IRBT, literally think I needed like a 7 or something at the most!?! - Over on my right, I charged my block of Bloodletters into his Chaos Lord and his Hellstriders - Bloodletters totally fluffed against his Chaos lord, however the Blood Warriors managed to take 4 wounds off him, leaving him on a single wound doh! - Bloodletters then also whiffed against the Hellstriders lol - In the centre, the WoKBT missed with 4 attacks / hits on the Daemonettes, only killing I think 12 in the end (but I got a Blood Tithe for my ‘Mark of the Deathdealer’ artefact) - By T3 also, the Slaughterpriests proceeded to fail their Bloodboil Prayers (again), having only managed to cast it once in 4 attempts over 2 turns - By this stage also, due to the new Slaanesh GHB2 artefacts and rules means up to 3 Characters can use their Command abilities, so Tom was cleverly casting Inspiring Presence all over the place and this was key in keeping his Daemonettes alive for so long in the centre - T3 his turn I lose the centre lol… - 30 Daemonettes pile in and attack twice on my IRBT - Wave 1 lol the 30 Daemonettes attack the IRBT with 41 attacks (25mm bases), generating 18 more attacks due to EKoS one game effect of hitting on +1 meaning they hit on 3's (generating extra attacks on 4's) - I have 23 saves to make on a 5+, and fail exactly 14 - Dead IRBT - My WoKBT swings back against the other unit of Daemonettes, killing 12, but they're piling in and attacking twice (dam you Chaos Lord and dam you 25mm bases lol) - 37 attacks back, 14 extra attacks, 20 Total wounds, 16 fails - Dead WoKBT - T4 he goes first, and at the end of his hero phase I burned 6 Tithe points for Murderlust and to charge from my right flank into the centre to tie up his Daemonettes - Rolled 3" failed change / needed a 6 noooooo what a waste!!! - Got counter charged by EKoS with Mystic Shield on - In the centre his battered 2 units of Daemonettes go into my main Bloodletter unit - Another bonus 14 attacks and more Bloodletters die… - The EKoS killed 19 Bloodletters wowsers he’s a monster – that’s my right flank totally gone now too lol!! - By now the whole centre’s a bloodbath as there are Bloodbound Characters in combat with his Chosen, the last of my Bloodletters taking on 2 units of battered Daemonettes and his Hellstriders… His EKoS is still loose and a menace… - Khorne go to work and we kill everything off, apart from 2 Hellstriders dam you lol… - T5 I go first, and by now he has an EKoS on full wounds and Sayl hiding controlling his rear objective - I burn more Blood Tithe points for a free Hero pile in and kill off the last Hellstriders, meaning I can now try and get back onto the centre / right so I can then take on the EKoS - I get a charge off on the EKoS and do 10 wounds, and then he kills literally whole unit and all 14 odd I had left… The end… Scores on the doors at the end of the game was I had left 570 points and he had left Sayl and his EKoS and 620 points. We both started at 1980 points so kill points he killed 50 points more than me.. Turn 5 I made a key mistake and charged his EKoS with some Bloodletters as thought could do 15 wounds. He had Mystic Shield on for 2+ save and I only did 10 of the 15 wounds needed… That meant I threw away a 270 point unit, whereas because he was probably in charge range, I should have fed him a cheap character or something instead doh! Slaanesh is a very good counter to Khorne, as whilst we build up out hit modifiers they can easily negate them. Bloodletters and Daemonettes are the same in terms of save and so on, however Bloodletter can hit more easily, however Daemonettes can hit more. The EKoS and the artefacts they have, and being able to lay down double hit modifiers can be brutal when played right. Great game and lots of learning!
  25. Game 5 new BoK army v Seraphons

    Hi all, Game 5 tonight with my Blades and had an epic super close great game versus my mate Paul's gorgeous Seraphon army.. 2000 points Matched Play, and I ran a Gore Pilgrims based list (below). I love Seraphons too so was really looking forward to this game, and we had plenty of trash talk leading up to it🐸 We played Starstrike, and went 5 turns 🏆 He was running a Starpriest, a Skink Priest, a Sauraus Sunblood, 15 Sauraus Guard (love these 😍), 2 x 20 Skinks, some Camelion Skinks, some Teradactols, a Stegadon and 2 Bastilidons with chaos hating lazers... I did my normal-ish deployment with the Bloodsecrator dead middle, Stoker and Priests central and within 8", Bloodletters in centre left and centre right, double BT's central too, and Warriors and Reavers protecting flanks and rear.. He went 1st on Turns 1-4, and I managed to win priority on Turn 5. The pieces of stars came down on my left / his right in both our deployment areas, and directly in the centre in no mans land. Great game, highlights and learnings were= - Paul rolled a 6 for priority for 3 turns running wtf haha?! - He also rolled a double 6 for BOTH Bastillidons in the same shooting phase and incinerated my Bloodletters😂 - Turn 1 he Teleported his Stegadon onto my left flank and charged 5 Blood Warriors.. He rolled really poorly and they were locked in combat for like 4 rounds I think in the end, with the Blood Warriors finally winning!!! - Blood Warriors are fantastic, such a good little unit and can really dish out the pain, as on the other flank they ended up killing the Saurus Sunblood through attacking when they die😂 - Double BT's hunting in a pack is deadly, as its such a big target and threat you just can't ignore them - Not sure if have got the right load out on the BT's yet, for example was good trying out 'The Mark of the Bloodreaper' but didn't really happen for me.. I think the Immense Power on the WoKBT is a keeper, and the Crimson Crown on the IRBT also - Bloodletters wow, they just don't seem to let you down!! They do their jobs and can really dish them mortals out.. A unit of 25 odd went into his 15 Saurus Guard and killed them just through the Mortals (they got 17 mortals from 47 attacks, as had Killing Frenzy plus plus on them etc) - I tried the Banner on the Bloodsecrator that allows units within 8" to reroll charges.. Whilst wasn't game changing it did allow a couple of charges that would of failed so defo something to try again... Game went 27-25.. Super epic, top game, loved it!! Blood for the Blood God, we came and we took some scalps lol!!
