AoS 2 - Fyreslayers Discussion

Yes, but not on the same unit (unless it has some ability to fight more than once)

Yes, it says "at the start of the combat phase" not "at the start of your combat phase".

Thanks! 

After you've fought with the unit using the command ability, can it fight again in the combat phase? Or is that command ability just letting you fight before eveeyone else and not an extra time? 

Thanks

If it’s your turn, you may fight twice per the FAQ, but only with lords of the lodge battalion. If it’s your opponents phase, you can strike first, then he goes, then you can strike again if it’s your lords of the lodge battalion.

Won my first 2 games with my 1k hermdar army! Fyreslayers are really fun. 

Now, I want to expand my army to 2k and i got a list in mind with the units i own. Please give me feedback on how to improve (and the reason why) if you think something is off. 

LEADERS

Runefather on mag

Runemaster 

Battlesmith 

Runesmiter 

Knight-Incantor (allies) 

 

BATTLELINE

10x VB 

10x VB 

10x HGB 

20x HGB 

 

BATTALION 

Lords of the lodge 

 

Why this list? 

- 20x HGB in the battalion, or should i use 30? Not sure on the unit sizes for these, please share your opinion! 

- The VB will be used as objective campers and/or screen for the HGB. 

- Incantor for some well needed anti-magic

 

So, what you think?  Would love to hear from more experienced players!

Hi guys, I am playing my first FS game Sunday.  I went with Greyfyrd (just based on what I own / have painted).  For "Battle-scarred Veteran", this also applies to my magmadroth attacks right? Since it is a command trait and not an artefact, and doesn't explicitly say "not the mount"?

Battle-scarred Veteran is a command trait, so it will not effect any mount attacks.

Mounts cannot benefit from command traits or artefacts. They can benefit from everything else (unless otherwise noted).

I found the perfect list but I need another Runeson on Magmadroth- anyone got one kicking around the US they want to get rid of on the cheap back from when peeps were buying 3 or 4 SCs?

Anyone do any weapon conversions? I'm thinking about using the hgb poleaxe flail heads as counts-as war picks. Always loved hammer dwarfs.

I know since they didn't get points in the GHB they aren't likely to be allowed in tournaments but this is filth and I thought I'd share. 

Looking at the screenshot I'd actually change the prayer out to Prayer of Ash for a slightly higher Shardfist Pelt chance. 

Still though, 3 drops, plenty of firepower, Vostarg run and charge and big first turn move, and then the extra attack from the kinband. Idea is to run the mags together, using the general to give the shardfist runeson reroll hits and use ranged attacks. Plenty of 1st turn command points and some cheeky blocking tricks with the wall. 

What do you all think?

The new matched play rules in the GHB 2019 says you can only buy 1 command point :)

Those aren't purchased, just the result of having 2 battalions.

No worries friend. It is a shame it won't see tournament play. The GHB version is nothing to sneer at though!

Though I might switch Cinder Crest or Coal Heart out on the Magmadroth just to see what works best.

This looks great! 

I honestly never leave this model off of a list- amazing utility for 40 points.

Hey guys, I currently only have the fyreslayers starterbox and I want to make a 1k list. Is there any alternative besides buying more fyreslayers, like any good allies? Also, any heroes from the starterbox i should not use? Thinking of putting the runefather on the magmadroth atm :)

I would invest the time to magnetize the heroes so you can change. I regret choosing the runefather because i want to use two runesons on mag instead.

I'm with @Sauriv on this one, I rue the day I didn't magnetize the Runesmiter platform, and i'm not generally one that trucks in that sort of thing. 

If you don't want to run pure Fyreslayers I'd suggest waiting for the Free Cities book and seeing which (if any) cities include them!

Got a tournament coming up, and trying to hammer out my list.  Here's what I've got so far:

Lodge: Vostarg

Leaders:

- Runefather: General, Fiery Endurance, Vosaxe

- Runemaster: Searing Heat

- Runesmiter: Prayer of Ash

- Battlesmith: Icon of the Ancestors

Battleline:
- 30 Hearthguard Berzerkers: Broadaxes

- 10 Vulkites: War picks and Shields

- 10 Vulkites: Handaxes

Other:

- 15 Auric Hearthguard

-Grimwrath 

Lords of Lodge Battalion

 

Toying with the idea of dropping the runesmiter and 5 Aurics, and putting the runefather on a magmadroth instead

I know it seems counterintuitive but I'd actually split your Hearthguard up also, you're going to struggle with high-objective games, especially against summoning or endless spells. If you break up your units a little you could send 5 Aurics, 10 HGB, and the Grimwrath as their own little spiky task force.

@TheNotebookGM

I want at least 20 to take advantage of the Lords of the Lodge battalion ability.  I do like the idea of 5 Aurics, 5 HGB, and the grimwraith causing issues across the board.  I lose 5 HGB that way, but that's not a huge issue.  Thanks for the input!

Never thought about that little spiky task force. Thanks for the idea

Hi everyone. 

I'm gonna play a slaanesh player tomorrow with my Hermdar slayers. 

Can someone explain the activation war between these armies with all the fight first stuff, I am confused...

Hermdar CA fight before anyone VS slaanesh making me fight last on a 2+ or 4+...

Thanks in advance!

TL;DR: Hermdar CA cancels out the Locus
