Greybeard86 Posted December 14, 2020 Share Posted December 14, 2020 Since my return to the fantasy side of the hobby, I have been surprised at how "spammy" the competitive and semi-competitive AoS lists feel. I won't go through all of them in detail, here you can find some obvious examples: LINK. As far as I can understand, this is due to the fact that a large part of the TT performance of units is linked to buffs, which are often restricted to specific keywords. These are linked to specific heroes (e.g. wardens buffing hammerers), or specific battalions (e.g. lords of the lodge). Often, choosing one such route truly prevents bringing other diverse units to the army in an effective manner. This seems to be very much the case for the wonderful Gitz (goblins). Armies in AoS already have fairly limited ranges, in general, thus this keyword focus further specializes the forces. In addition, it seems to kill, for the most part, effective cross-army options (e.g. within order), except for some niche cases. The result is that lists seem to focus on a subset of units, which are then spammed, together with a few supporting characters. Is this "good"? Or would you prefer more "diverse" being "competitive"? Am I missing anything? 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
