AoS 2 - Stormcast Eternals Discussion


Recommended Posts

This is extremely disturbing if this is what is to come in a new book...utterly garbage and super weird stuff.

4+ save, who is writing this? Where is the quality control? I mean, the normal Lord Celestant is 3+. Why the 6” move? All this with the same lame weapon profiles from 2015...

The special abilities could be OP og total trash, not really a big deal, ****** happens, but the basic profile is just so bad...so bad...

Who looked at the super hero pose and wrote those stats😧

I needed another greatmace Sequitor and really liked the pose of the ETB kit prime.  I clipped off the shield, replaced it with an unused Tempestor sword and glued some extensions onto the mace.

Trying to finish more of the Stormcast backlog before the 3.0 book drops... only 2000pt left to paint

My Lord Arcanum on Alpha Gryph-Charger, from Ghur... Does it show? 😊

Gardus is good, despite the 5 wounds and 4+ save and low rend/damage weapons. I would go so far to say that he is easily the best Stormcast hero warscroll, especially since he is only 110 points (there isn't much competition for that title). His 4+ save doesn't really matter that much because you don't need him to survive more than one turn.

Re-rollable charges (great for scion drops) and +1 attack for all heroes around him that doesn't cost a command point is a great ability. I could see some kind of gimmick list with a bunch of mounted heroes like LADracoline, LAGC, LCDracoth, Stardrake to repeatedly attack with Martyrs Strength + Cycle of the Storm combo. It's not a meta breaker but it's playable and distinct from other Stormcast lists. 

I don't see him being impactful enough to ever justify playing Hallowed Knights in a competitive game. Playable and good for casual games, which is a fine place to be for a special character.

His base stats are bad and not representative of what Stormcast should be, but that's consistent with every other Stormcast warscroll.  There's a chance it will be rewritten with 3rd edition battletome like they did with some of the Necrons from Indomitus.

right now we have so many warscrolls that needs a rewrite it would take 4 books worth of work.

while a fair analysis, it sucks the first non-Hammers character we get should be expected to support a charge then die

Complete garbage. I think im done with this game... 

i catch myself doing this too, I think it's better to engage from a hobby perspective first and a competitive one second. at least so you don't second guess your purchases 😞

Warhammer has never been a balanced game with a tight rule set... look somewhere else (video games, card games, etc.) if you really want that.

Im not trying to be a ****** here - it has been proven time and time again that Games Workshop generally does not write good rules for their miniature games. You are only setting yourself up for disappointment if you want Warhammer to be a deep, balanced, and satisfying strategy game. I think Underworlds is the only exception and it only became a tight rule set after 3 iterations.

I was surprised to see his terrible Warscroll. If he was at least a 3+ save as the regular Lord Celestant it would feel less crappy, and if his once per game ability was not for heroes only, then it would begin being cool. His primary weapon should at least also be dmg 2, why are Stormcasts hitting like wet noodles compared to any other "regular" heroes?

Still him having a worse save than a basic version seems like a total lack of quality control and really poor effort from someone who does not care at all and wants to write more crazy aelf warscrolls... Yes that was salty ;)

Dedicated wizards (arcanum, incantor, exorcist) all have a better save and higher damage on average than Gardus, it's all very fun

i dont think we get a new battletome anytime soon and if we get we will not get updatet warscrolls. I think next Edition Starter Box will be Lumineth vs Vampires or something like that. Maybe GW aims for making Lumineth teh new Posterboys.
