AoS 2 - Legion Of Azgorh Discussion

Recommended Posts

8 minutes ago, Honk said:

In my area, I call upon old school and trveness rules and everybody loves playing a „legacy“ and rare army.... Powercreep left us behind long ago.

And who isn’t can *please insert all the swearing* and play somebody else.

So... 

Centaurs as Varanguard.

Drazoath as Chaos Sorcerer Lord on Manticore.

Ironsworn as Chaos Warriors.

Tauruk as Chaos Lord on Demonic Mount.

Kdaii as Chaos Spawn.

Daemonsmiths as Chaos Sorcerer Lords.

What to do with Fireglaives and our artillery? Not sure they have a place in StD.

Sadly I guess the dwarves from the cities book have the best overlap...

but it really depends on the list. As an undead player I don’t really know what to do in worst case, don’t own the slaves or cities book, but it‘ll work somehow or mixed order something

How the mighty have fallen.

I'll play them as CoS alongside my regular dwarves. They're just cousins from another realm, I swear.

You'd probably be better off using them as allied Stormcast, the only other thing that fits the base size are Gyrocopters.

So no one playing models as LoA anymore ? :^)

I have not played with the new scenarii / rules yet, so  I'd be curious to hear some feedbacks !

I'll still play them from times to time because I love the army but I won't expect to win any game.

Every time you field a LoA list hashut smiles and sips his grog...

will be fielding following list to a Nurgle-get-together end of August:

Let the Rockets 🚀🧨 fly, sadly it‘s only 2 in a vanguard game.

I'm surprised there's no Azgorh Allegiance, Fireball is really useful and so is ignoring wounds, moreso than the bonus from Chaos anyway. I'm guessing you're not running Magma Cannons because you don't own them? If so I can't blame you, they're pricey (both in game and in real life) but I'd recommend them over the Deathshrieks any day.

Regardless, good luck with the list.

Too close range for my taste... and too hit or miss for my rolling

My usual fireworks are two FW rockets and old school pewter rocket and pewter mortar team with a daemonsmith standing in the middle.

To each their own, Daemonsmiths help fix the range and that range becomes 27" once you factor in their movement. I wouldn't say they're too hit or miss though, on average those Rockets (with a Daemonsmith) are going to do the same damage to a unit of 10 models (with a 4+ save) as a Cannon that rolled a 2. If you can expect better than 2's (and I certainly hope so or you're extremely unlucky) then Magma Cannons heavily outperform the Rockets.

Also they can snipe out characters because LoS doesn't affect them, and 1/3rd of the time they outright kill those support characters, since most of them have only 5 wounds.

Does anyone have any black and gold "Slaves to Darkness" themed paint jobs on their Dwarves?

I'm kicking around some ideas and just looking for some inspiration.

Chaos Dwarves  OP !!!

BC0FAFAA-76E1-49D6-8C29-9B054D1D7E62.jpeg
 

1250 game,

Drazhoath and a Smith (General, grotesque & armor)

6 K‘Daii, 2x10fireglaives, 

Rockets and a Magmacannon

10 Chaos warhounds as allies

against a newbi with a shooty mawtribe list.

played a very grindy blood&glory game.
Magma cannon wrecked face, k‘daii fought bravely, lucky MW spam from fireglaives

my mighty daemon smith with ash storm, grotesque and the artifact armor brawled it out with 5 Leadbelchers for two rounds saving my flank and securing the victory on points in round 5...


black shard armor is even better than Mannfred von carsteins Tempelhof rubbish and everybody wears it...🤣

Do you guys remember when we had weapon options for the Castellan? Or when fireglaives had special rules against monsters? Sometimes I miss those. 

 

Are they any abilities/rules lost or changed in the period of aos updates you guys miss?

Don’t really know, but „burning skies“ wrecks whole armies, like FEC Flayers; Soulblight Swift Death or KO ships (?!what happens to carried units anyway?!)

Ignoring the first wound per phase is huge.
Sometimes I yearn for a proper book, but LoA is only a small FW army, soooo

They have to roll for each model and one is destroyed for every 1 rolled. As strong as KO are, they're ironically one of our better matchups.

Good question about the carried units when burning skies hits the carrying unit. Never thought about it.

but I can't imagine this. Or didn't you talk about carried units and burning skies? If not, what exactly you are referring to?

Garrisoned models are removed from play while they're in the ships, but when KO ships get destroyed they roll off to determine how many garrisoned models are destroyed.
