Care of shadeglass.co.uk. The next two warbands are out on April 14th. Season 2 in the summer perhaps?62E32880-F5F1-4245-B231-0C96527B257C.jpeg.e402400cfd990f2e799636fe6be8222b.jpeg

Phew! So ranged combat is "only" 3 hexes after all. And only 1 in damage. But that Boltstorm pistol though!!!

Thanks for sharing :)

Wow, talk about super easy Inspire conditions!

Makes me jealous that Chosen Axes don't inspire when holding an objective after an Action instead of in the End Phase.

But I like the farstrider condition! Farstriders cannot camp on objectives in their own territory, defending with their ranged attacks.

They seem extremely strong though, among the fastest warband in the game and every fighter has a ranged attack. The stats of the other two fighters and their inspired stats will tell if they are indeed such monsters.

Margores fiends inspire trigger seems a little lackluster. Easy indeed and something the warband wants to do anyway.

I think it's important to remember that Magore's has no way to initiate combat already inspired. They need to literally go in half cocked.
Not that I'm complaining! But it is what it is. One of the easier, but not overpowered imo.

I get that. Just purely jealous.

If there ever were a "fix" for Chosen Axes, it would that they inspire at the end of the fighter's Activation, not the End Phase. Do that and they become tournament viable, imo.

There’s another bit in the white dwarf too that says when farstrider is inspired, he can use his bird to make a 4 hex attack. The bird does 1 damage, and 2 on a crit.

Really like where these two Warbands are going and to be honest I also feel it will likely mean that for Khorne fans this Warband just allows for a wider ease of play. Same is true for the Stormcast also, really didn't expect Movement 4 there and as others have noted, the easy Activation.

With wave 1 being finished I also have to admit that I'd likely not stick around for wave 2. I do like where the game is going but unless there are specific Khorne Warbands to draw me in (which I doubt will happen for wave 2) I'm cool with the game being what it is.

A secret hope I do still have is a Neutral card pack, so that you can play whatever without getting every Warband. We shall see.

For friendly games I even allow it to be played that way because it makes the whole Warband a whole lot more interesting.

Not sure I find the Farstrider inspire condition all that easy; compared to the Chosen Axes, of course it is, but that's against a very low bar.

Thing is, they have to be aggressive to inspire and, just like the Axes, can't inspire until the end of the Action phase.. Sure, their positioning isn't as specific, but it requires that they play aggessively, putting them at risk against other aggressive warbands...

Wow, I know you’re just being honest but do you realise how that sounds? Khorne (a faction of a faction) & Stormcast got fully half of the releases in the first season & you’re out unless they get more? Most of us are sitting over here just hoping our faction eventually gets a warband at all.

Again im not being mean or agressive about it, it just sounds incredibly selfish to players who are loving the game but who’s preferred faction is probably unlikely to even get a single release any time soon.

Great, even more ways to deny Inspire for Chosen Axes.

Between that and the card that does 1 damage to all fighters, I am getting the feeling the game is in danger of jumping the shark.

 

Is the all-damage the first ploy we have that simply just will damage fighters no matter what protection they have or what range they are at?

 

Oh, crud, I just realized that makes Orruks even better - like they needed it.

On the other hand, Inspiration Strikes is beautiful for Chosen Axes...  

It does seem like 80% of the time, Great Concussion is going to be better than Earthquake.

There seems to be a lot of damage upgrade also some surprise damage upgrade as reaction ploy.

Which could be pretty hard for small team like stormcast, on the other the farstrider look quite interesting

I soooo want to turn Farstrider's gang into Pirates, with pistols and cutlasses, and a parrot on the leader...

I like the way you think. I'm turning mine into 80's Cyber-Soldiers with pink lazer guns and cybernetic parts. 

Mostly as a protest at how boring I think they look.

The new cards are on the card library.

Magore's Fiends look like the blooreavers... better bloodreavers. And How may counter strike or Cleave attack do the new stormcast have access to?

The people I've been speaking with about the new cards seem to think that the sky has fallen for objective based decks.  I think they'll definitely be weaker than they were, but it's all going to be about being able to counter the moves that your opponent does.  They'll be more of a reactive deck. 

Plus, if your opponent has loads of cards to stop you grabbing objectives, what cards will they have left to actually do what they want to do?

Just how many anti-objective-decks cards can you put in your deck if you never face a single objective deck? Just how many slots are you willing to waste because they're not helping you make points?

If everyone is so sure Objective decks are dead, Aggro (and Katophrane) decks will be on the rise, which means soon those anti-objective cards won't be anywhere near as prevalent as people fear...
