Aos 2 - Lumineth Realm-Lords Discussion


Recommended Posts

Some interesting stuff. Are the Bladelords worth using? 2+ bodyguard rule is pretty good, but not getting additional dmg bonuses from anything seems meh. I guess their niche is bodyguarding and they’re good at it. 120pts though. Hmmm.

Lord Regent seems pretty good, though do they get a command ability?

I like the Ballista and Loreseeker the most, a little disappointed with the bannerblade, but he seems good.

Overall though these units seem fun from these theories, intrigued to see them all properly written down to digest fully.

So finished what I have now and am ready for weekends releases (and next weekends)

I finished my Ymetrica Mountain Spirit. Such a beautiful model. Cant wait to get my hands on Avalenor!

Summary of the comments in the vid for all of the units:  And before that, I’m really happy that they finally made a really good preview video for the Lumineth (not BR series which is outstanding

Really hard to make a judgment until we see all of the warscrolls and allegiance abilities confirmed, but my gut instinct tells me that Alumnia may actually turn out to be pretty good (if the "theories" are true) - being able to move units before the first battle round, giving units run & charge as a command ability, and getting a teleport would go a long way to solving our biggest issue: low mobility allowing enemies to trap you in your deployment zone and stack up on objectives.

Syar may still be better, but I'd definitely consider this as a nice alternative.

First impressions mate, I will surely go more in depth with the full pages.

I didn't see the normal fox in the leaks, just sevireth. Could somebody with better eyes than me point them out in a PM?

Me too! I haven't seen the normal spirit of the wind. Let us spread the love! 🙂 

 

Same profile but with 2 less rend and 2 less wounds

I have to imagine the "theory" about bladelords is missing something. There's no way they don't have the sunmetal weapons rule. Not being a wizard would be strange as a vanari unit, and what about Ailenn's extra defense vs ranged attacks in underworlds? As it is they, stoneguard are just better in almost every respect. I REALLY hope there's more to them.

Yeah me too. I want to love these guys!

If the theories are true, we're getting some powerful stuff!

Unless there's more to them, the Bladelords will sadly not be the killing machines I had hoped for. Nevertheless, they'll make for terrific meatshields for our squishy mages, which is acceptable and still useful. (But it ain't over 'til its over!)

If they're right about the Wind Spirits, they're going to be the hit-and-run unit of my dreams!  Probably going to drive people crazy though. I'll take 3.

There seems to be a distinct lack of command abilities, which cannot possibly be correct. I'm still holding out hope that we get something that interacts with shining company.

Several of the spells and abilities would be a bit of a kill-joy for the opponent. Fortunately, such things are optional.

Overall, color me intrigued. I eagerly anticipate when I have the book in my hands for myself!

I am so lost right now haha.  I assume some "future insights" have been posted in other places?  I honestly could not care less about how powerful the rules are or are not.  As long as they stay decent when the inevitable nerfs happen.  I have honestly thought that the number of actual players who go out and buy whole new armies based on powerlevel are few and far between.

If we are OP for now wonderful.   Won't impact me much as playing games is still not really a thing.

A super fluffy, 2 temple list I'm looking to build towards:

Windmage
2x5 Windchargers
Spirit of the Wind

Stonemage
1x10 Stoneguard
Spirit of the Mountain

Lord Regent
2x10 Wardens
2x10 Sentinels

1990pts

So there's a Hurakan, Alarith, and Vanari "detachment", no named characters so all "your guys", lots of bodies, and seems really fun to play. Thinking Syar as a generic nation that benefits all groups.

So, the ballista gets +1 shot when it sits still, right? Does the battalion give it yet another one? Or does the battalion just make it’s 6+ FnP go to 5+? (Which still seems good btw).

I reckon I’m gonna get a Loreseeker and 2 ballista to add to my list, not sure what else yet. I was planning on using a big block of Bladelords as my elite killy unit, but maybe I’ll just do 5 to bodyguard and fill the other points with something else. Not sure yet though.

Looking at all the "future insights" - the rules seem to be fitting with the lore of the units, which is great. The LRL also again get some fun, interesting abilities, and add a whole new dimension to our arsenal - speed. If you aren't super competitive, I think you'll have a lot of options to play. For competitive players, we'll have to see. They also did some unexpected things like adding more to the Tyrionic side of the lore and rules, which is awesome. 

For the rest - I agree, there might be some OP or bad stuff in there which will be changed eventually. 

I'm with many here - the only unit I'm a bit disappointed if the insights are true, are the Bladelords, because they'd have weird fluff (Sunmetal blades, but no Sunmetal, Vanari but can't cast), and aren't at all what I expected (glass cannon). They'd fit with their description though, and are also at least good. As bodyguards for your Scinari, they could easily be ok and fun too. 

All in all, really exciting for us!

Really hope the dual temple approach works, Its my favorite part of lumineth!

Any "future insights" on the battleline options? Are blademasters and windchargers under some subfaction/general?

Apparently, we will be able to take 1 unit of Bladelords as battleline option for each *Scinari* in the army. While Helon unlocks Windchargers the same way Ymetrica unlocks Stoneguard.

Yea I was at ground zero for the discord stuff and it was messy. Cant say I believe all of it, as I think there is some stuff we’re missing out on. My list is going to change though. Think I will replace Avalorn and the stone mage in my list with two ballista, a regent, and maybe a lore seeker points willing. This seems really too good to pass up, and I wanna see how everything plays together in one legion.

The generic Regent looks good then? That’s great news. Has there been any word on Command Abilities for any of these units?

Ok!!  I so want to do this as well.  A slice of each temple so that maybe my opponent will be kept off balance?  And so I can play with all the toys!!  But them named characters.... I might need my LoE. And bladelords....

We should find out tomorrow anyway with all the battletome YouTube reviews right? 

Yup, tomorrow we'll know for sure. For us though it's great, because our pre-orders are up before all those videos are on YouTube. I know we can look at the warscrolls but it's good to also get a bit of insight into the other rules before you buy the models.

That sounds nasty.. With only 8 wounds the normal spirit sounds super squishy and only 1 rend his shooting get much worse...

I can't for the life of me understand why the normal spirit versions get so inferior to the named one..
