  1. Past hour
  2. That's the hope. I mostly see GW's rules to be more of a case of incidental incompetence when things are overpowered however, if they were attempting to drive sales selectively via rules they've done a poor job of that with a number of releases. Apologies for being a wet blanket on the hype train.
  3. Agreed-the speculating is fun. I hope we are getting a whole additional temple and not just a hero, but even a non-named fighty hero would be good.
  4. I just want a book that's internally balanced to the point where I have a good selection of viable options and externally balanced to the point where my performance in games is more reliant on my skill and decent fortune than on my choice of army. While I'm at it, I'd like my unicorn to be sea-green with a nice white mane.
  5. Today
  6. Speaking of Underworlds warbands, just noticed the article today said we will be seeing previews for Khagra's Ravagers this week--hype!
  7. I also think Divine is for 40k, Dead is for us obviously. I'm fully expecting the famous zombies-draugr we saw in the First of january trailer with his friends. I doubt it will be vampirates (but i want it reall bad). On the other hand we have a vampire warband coming... So Hum... Zombies and Vampire noble ? Pretty sure zombies are garanted, the subtitle of the event is DEAD
  8. I mentioned the second picture, have a look at it, it' just doesn't look to me like the saddle is on a hump or similar convex back, that's why I posted the picture. But, is such a small and angled picture I could be wrong of course. Maybe we'll find out on Saturday, that'd be awesome!
  9. I don't play Fyreslayers, but I thought you gents should see this too. Here's an interesting tidbit from this months White Dwarf! The paragraphs about "the master maker" and the "Duardrazhal" from the Fyreslayers battletome are printed in it. And there's also a Fyreslayers story where "totally not the white dwarf" aka Azkharn sings the following song: And here's my sloppy translation attempt: The Dwarven realm fell to disaster, in a fiery battle. ??????????? will stay and mine Azyr. Kharadron in the sky. Fyreslayers with their gold. Duardrazhal's massive construction Making the Dwarven realm. Just thought this was very worth having a look at if you're a Dwarf fan!

  11. 100% mate and GW already said they were Previewing the Underworld Warbands on the first Friday of every month, this month they only delayed it by a week because that Friday was New Years Day. So we should see the next Warband on February 4th.
  12. Yesterday
  13. I sincerely doubt both "dead" and "divine" refer to AoS things. How this stuff usually goes is that if there are two keywords, like "Decadence and Decay," then one is AoS and one is 40k. I'm guessing "dead" will be some variation of vampires, whether vampirates or a more classic Soulblight approach*. That means "Divine" almost certainly refers to 40k, and may well be something for the Sisters of Battle, who are known for their manifested faith and are known to have a couple releases in the pipeline. Failing that, it could be Adeptus Custodes, Talons of the Emperor combined codex, or many other non-AoS things. I think that is more likely than double AoS, especially if we're supposed to get an update on Broken Realms on a weekday like was apparently said. *It could be the Underworlds warband, but the smaller games tend not to get a headline presence. The notable exception I can think of was "Shadows, Iron, and Broken Realms" where "Iron" was for Necromunda. However, I think the fact that we had two other headlines made it make more sense, plus they were lacking in other 40k universe news to mix in with the double dose of AoS. Basically, that event was unusual based on my recollections of what we've been seeing.
  14. Here is where we disagree strongly. Yes, it d rather have good internal balance. But there is so much more variety in 40k armies than in many AoS ones. They feel more like an army, whatever that might mean in that dystopian future. you could say AoS simply not having enough units plays a role, but then you get books like the gitz one where the designers actively work against variety.
  15. The Soulwars warscroll said 1/3 greatmaces and the soulwars unit sizes are all over the place. I wish we could in-/ decrease unit sizes by single models, not these stupid fixed blocks... but that's not a SCE exclusive problem
  16. I think is new zombis and the new lumineths of tyrion
  17. If you google camel cavalry there are a variety of saddle styles with many showing the riders legs in a similar positions as the preview, though also a number in the style referenced above.
  18. Such a cool idea. one of the big things I always took for granted is that knowing an army i s maybe the most important part of playing. knowing how much work Ard boys with the warchanter actually does. Or how much distance the lumineth riders can cover. How difficult to kill hearthguard actually are. that knowledge and experience informs the decisions the player makes and the list is the thing that offers the options. so playing the others army against them is really fun as it takes that away. Or at the very least makes you rely on second hand knowledge of having just played that army. Would be also very cool test of skill to pit two players together with the same army they never played before. To take away that experience element. but again it sounds really fun. I love when people shake things up. I might suggest this when I next play a TTS game.
  19. That sucks and I truly feel for you. But don’t let yourself be put behind just because two of them like a more min-maxing playstyle. there’s nothing wrong with that, but they should also adjust their playstyle to yours. At least once in awhile. And I use playstyle but for a lack of a better description of what someone wants from the game. so if you occasionally tussle with their them for tournament prep. After the tournament they should also play that (narrative) campaign with you. Or at the very least a more matched list to yours.
  20. It was said that the units from Indomitus receive new rules / stats in terms of an expansion.
  21. Looking at the warscroll for the Idoneth sharks, the cant-pile-in seems very strong. As a unit they are also relatively self-contained- while obviously the idoneth allegiance abilities help them, they also do fine on their own and dont need command abilities/spells to make them shine. This has me pondering them as allies, especially for CoS or DoK. With CoS i'm wondering how powerful it might be with pistoliers who do their damage in the charge phase, or in DoK with sisters of slaughter, to abuse the 6 inch pile in on sisters of slaughter even more. While not amazing on their own, the sharks also do OK damage for their cost. I'm considering 2 of them for the 8/9ths chance of getting off the no pile in if needed (2 shots on the net launchers). Interestingly they don't seem used a lot in the idoneth book itself, so am wondering if the ability isn't as strong as I think it is in my head. Has anyone used them with the net launchers specifically as allies?
  22. I've been playing games vs myself with various incarnations of Beasts of Chaos and Mawtribes. Once I get a few more oval bases I'll be able to see how Skryre fares vs my other stuff. Maybe Stormcast too if my auctions don't sell right away.
  23. No Pile in works only in the sharks turn, would be more useful in the opponents turn.
  24. @frenk_castle think of bloodreavers as a screen to protect your more important units and as a bloodtithe point. Split them into 2 x 10 and do not waste buffs on them. Skullreapers are your heavy hitters in a mortal army and the Korgorath can be handy as well. Screen with reavers, buff up and unleash them. The mighty skullcrushers, with bronzed flesh prayer on them, can be really tanky but won't kill much. Slaughterpriests with bloodboil prayer are essentially our artillery. Maybe play your Exalted Deathbringer with Spear as a 3rd priest (remember they can do 2 prayers each per turn). Do you have the altar? Rerolling prayers improves the priest's output massively. Are you planning to buy more models? If so Wrathmongers are handy for the extra attack and can do work in combat too. I would also recommend the Judgements of Khorne, especially in a priest heavy list. Don't forget bloodtithe isnt just for summoning daemons. Many a game has been won by using bloodtithe for an extra move or attack activation in the hero phase (and can be used in your opponent's hero phase). If you are prepared to run some daemons, flesh hounds are an excellent screen with decent attacks and an unbind. Finally I am not a fan of the mighty lord of khorne. There are better heroes to lead your force such as a Lord on Karkadrak or Daemon Prince, both of whom benefit more from Goretide Command Trait as they have multiple melee attacks. Good luck and keep practicing!
  25. Could be like Feast of Bones where an older range led by a new hero sculpt faces off against a new Undead faction.
  26. Actually it wouldn't be outside the realms of possibility for it to be two factions of all new plastic models as a battle box. 40k had shadowspear after all, where all the miniatures were new pushfit models for both factions.* *clutching at straws here that we get devoted of sigmar/order of azyr but really even just the witch hunter is good enough
  27. @Sharklone judging by your hand the ultraforge War Daemon looks closer in size to the old metal bloodthirster rather than the new plastic ones which are a fair bit bigger. He is probably more daemon prince sized however as long as you put him on the right sized base for a bloodthirster I dont think anyone would mind.
  28. So it's the starter set for 3rd edition, coming this summer! 🎉 .. 😆
