Deadkitten Posted July 27, 2020 Share Posted July 27, 2020 This came up in the Slaanesh thread. Which army has the best Battleline now after the FAQs and GHB20? There's lots to consider. I think theres Speed, Durability (both in terms of armor save and MW save), damage output, MW output, Points Cost, synergy with the rest of the army (access to buffs) and relevant battalions (to lower the drops). There's also Battleshock (maybe healing goes here?) OH! and base size is a thing, so there's reach (2" on a 32 vs 1" on 25 for example). How well do they play the objective game (1 TG vs 20 Pinks for example)? Finally, I know that some units rely on Battalion or Sub-Faction buffs to push them over the edge. That's OK (just list it out so I can look it up!). Also, some unit's need a general to unlock them. Again, that's OK too. Basically, if you can list build them out as battleline, they're fair game. I guess I should start...... Rigth off the top of my head, I'm going to say Ghouls, due to both the synergy of the rest of the list with them and their ability to grow back. They suffer in the speed and MW output, and are fragile in that they need all their support pieces. I can see an argument that their dependency will knock them out of the running but I figured I should get the ball rolling. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
