    AoS 2 - Legion of Night Discussion

    Don’t quite know how I missed this thread! Personally as @MrCharisma has already said. Ambush messes with your opponents deployment. As does gravesite markers. Combine these with potent threats in ambush (Harbringers or VLoZD/Terrorgheist) and your opponent cannot afford to over commit or his back line/hone objective is dead. I generally always charge turn 1 with my Harbringers to kill a small chaff unit or poorly positioned support hero. Then bring on a Terrorgheist as it’s scream is in range and either another unit of Harbringers or a VLoZD - spell loadout dependant ofc. Gives my opponents much more pressing concerns than my 3x 5 Dire Wolves or my 5 man Black Knight unit (in terrain obviously rocking a 2+ a/s thx to ‘the bait’ ) if he shoots my wolves his ranged units are then killed. I do usually deploy a single unit of wolves “in the grave” for late game objective grabbing in my opponents half. Wow, sorry for the wall of text! So in summary I find LoN favours playing very aggressively. Keep your opponent on the back foot and thinking defensively. It’s a gamble but the flappies are pretty durable and with Vile Transference they can be extremely annoying to finish off.

    GH17: 5 Greatest Hits (and 1 Opportunity)

    Love the topic! Epic moments for me are one shotting a full health mawcrusha with a GKoT who had a single wound remaining. I got tabled in the game but loved it nonetheless second is the mystical terrain I failed at heat which lost me the game on the twitch feed. Awesome game, awesome opponent with an equally awesome army! Games that are remembered as epic sagas wholly enjoyed by both players are the best games (whether it’s hyper compatible matched play or narrative scenario with a club mate)
  3. Well said Ben and I wholeheartedly agree. I am unashamedly a GW fanboi. And have been for 30yrs!

    Legion of Night - "Double Dragon" help

    List looks solid. I’m not sure if ambushing the skeletons is a the best use of “the bait” ability skeleton units get in Night. I run a more extreme top heavy variant list and ambush with harbringers & 2 Terrorgheists. Best set advice I’ve got is keep playing your list till you know it’s strengths inside out. Knowing what your list is and isn’t capable of doing will win you games. Keep us informed of your progress!!

    Black Knights and/or Hexwraiths in LON

    I use them for 2 reasons in my LoN list: 1) they’re deathrattle so benefit from ‘the bait’ 2) the speed of them makes their banner (-1 bravery) easily positioned where you need it

    Black Knights and/or Hexwraiths in LON

    I always take a unit of 5 Black Knights in my LoN brilliant unit, overlooked far to often

    GHoN Vs Maggotkin 2K

    I’d 100% keep Pinions on your Dragon Lord. You’ll get way more usage out of it than Orb imho. Ideally you want some else to be putting mystic shield on your dragon Lord aswell.

    ??? Vs seraphon

    Apart from your harbringers it looks like a very static grind list.. good luck in your game!!

    ??? Vs seraphon

    They ignore rend -1 with shields I believe

    2-0-1 With Grand Host 2k

    How was your first opponent being in back the Black Knights with reserve points? As they no longer have the summon spell on their warscroll

    LoN vs darkling covens

    Harbringers benefit massively from the VLoZD command ability and being in range for a deathless minions save. Only problem with ambushing is its end of movement phase and thus after the command ability is given out.

    Experienced Player joins the 'Dead'

    Welcome to Shyish! Personal opinion here but I’d give your gg great blades. And as for running a Terrorgheist competitively I ran 2 of them at heat 2 recently and placed 14th. Any pics of your stuff?
  15. Will be there this week! Crucial blood Bowl league game!!!
