    AoS 2 - Slaves to Darkness / Darkoath Discussion

    Maybe it's my personal preference, but I find alternate weapons=new unit a little cheatsy. Free People would be a pretty "large" army if they separated the freeguild guard into 4 units! (well ok thats how the empire used to work). Also I actually think Warhounds won't be replaced since they already repacked them literally last year. Seems weird to do that, while at the same time not repacking things like Dragon Ogors or Chimeras. Unless "chaos hunting dogs" is a completely different thing. Or they do a Gryph Hound and they're 1 model companions/summoned units for heroes. I mean not everything in Underworlds becomes a thing, the Squigs that accompany Mollog are all unique. And also Grot Scuttlings have also not become a thing. Plus the recent battletomes have been more soupy as of late with both BoC and GG having 3 or more army general keyword options, and even NH has that weird LoN thing going on. UNLESS they pull off a NH and many DO units are also part Slaves to Darkness but a pure DO army has it's own unique mechanics/battlelines.

    Do you think FW may be hinting that more SCE stuff will come from them? I mean they LOVE space marines, and SCE are fantasy space marines.

    AoS 2 - Slaves to Darkness / Darkoath Discussion

    I think Darkoath may become a keyword, but will not be separate from Slaves to Darkness or whatever the heck the Undivided army will be called. I can't really see them becoming a full on faction, unless it's a relatively "micro" faction like Daughters of Khaine which relies a lot on dual kits (5 dual kits+character is the entire army). If anything, the Harbingers so far have been a "part" of a larger army. Ordinator is Sacrosant, a keyword within SCE. Fungroid Cave Shaman is Moonclan, a keyword within Gloomspite Gitz. And alright true, Knight of Shrouds is in his own army, Nighthaunt, but NH is pretty large faction (without relying on dual kits....not counting hex wraiths) and half of the NH models can also be a part of Legions of Nagash.

    Well at this point I'm pretty sure a riot would start if SCE got another 6-8 new models. Especially the people who have giant piles of liberators!

    Oh hey speaking of models, some classic O&G models are coming to Made to Order. https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/01/20/coming-soon-made-to-order-orcs-and-goblins/

    Anyone just seen that the Feb White Dwarf cover is focusing on SCE (more specifically the Hammerhands)? Thats interesting, I guess in much the same way Space Marine Chapters getting extra rules in WD.

    Nurglings Riding Squigs!!

    Plague Toads were just mutant squigs all along!

    AoS 2 - Gloomspite Gitz Discussion

    Plus it is nice to actually have a variety of battalions! As opposed to say Legions of Nagash who have 6, 4 of which are legion specific and require Nagash or a Mortarch. I still can't believe they don't have a Necromancer+Zombie Battalion. Though I am curious if the Gobbapalooza battalion is going to be a common thing from now on.

    AoS 2 - Gloomspite Gitz Discussion

    Yea I think thats the debate on Battalions. If they're too cheap or too good, they become auto takes (like the Everchosen battalions pre 2.0 nerf). If they're too overcosted or with marginal benefits, then they're just sitting there locking out additional artifacts (SCE struggle a lot with this, outside of like the cleansing phalanx) Another thing to keep in mind is the shift of 1.0 battalions to 2.0. Modern battalions usually only give 1 benefit, vs the 2-3 benefits of older ones. So you do have to sit and think about gaining the one drop, artifact, cp, and one benefit vs the cost and composition of the battalion. And it does still appear to be a learning process on GWs part. BoC as another example being the next newest book has some very....odd battalion choices, from almost auto include to "why do I need to take 3 gors".

    Be cool if a Chaos Warpgate/Realmgate becomes a thing. Or just a huge Shrine of Chaos.

    Other than adding bows to the horsemen, not sure what they could do with a 2nd light cavalry option.

    AoS 2 - Gloomspite Gitz Discussion

    Yea this rule has been discussed multiple times since AoS 2.0 dropped, and it is one of those "not for matched play" sort of rules (though those are disappearing, like summoning) I think a problem would arise for strategies involving purposefully getting your general killed and getting a new general with a new trait.

    Redesigning the Ironweld Arsenal

    Reminds me a lot of the Warmachine/Hordes Mercenaries, great works!

    AoS 2 - Hosts of Slaanesh Discussion

    I imagine the new KoS will have weapon options, since thats what happened to all the other GD (technically the BT was split into 3 versions, but it counts).

    AoS 2 - Gloomspite Gitz Discussion

    I would think spears to shove down as many attacks as possible, especially with buffs like the snufflers. But it can be up to you. Most of the time, weapon choices aren't too clear cut on one being superior.
