    Big FAQ?

    Am I being stupid, or does the GA: Order faq say that wild rider shields don't have any special rules, and then the FAQ says here are their special rules? 😂 bit confusing

    As another point, the maw krusha should only have 14 wounds 😂

    Help with Doubles Events Rules

    The pack is for a teams event, not doubles, which is why it's not mentioned
  4. Made it to B&G without having to do any hotel room painting, which was a bit of a result, and have since been taking my time working on a few extra bits for the army. First one finished is this warchanter. I'll probably repaint his weapon at some point to fit with the rest of the army, just wanted to try something out. I've also updated the first post with some better photos of the army

    Help with Doubles Events Rules

    The majority of team events you play normal 1v1 games, but each of your team plays a member of your opponents team. Doubles is a different situation and these questions are more likely to be applicable, but they will usually be defined in the pack

    GW is asking for advice on GHB 2019

    One problem that's immediately obvious is people with strong armies asking for point reductions on units that aren't regularly taken just because everything else is so good. I wish GW had asked for points changes compared to a yardstick unit like liberators, otherwise how do you tell if a unit is over or undercosted when everything is up for review

    The main things Maw Krusha brings IMO are speed and having lots of weapons and a massive base for the Waaagh, making the range of it effectively 36"ish

    They usually do them straight after Xmas for people starting a new army for the new year

    Can we trust "fan" sites and channels?

    I don't think I've actually ever seen a 'review' of a GW product by any of the GW-centric media that was anything other than an excuse to reveal the contents of said product a week early anyway, so surely this is all completely irrelevant
  11. I've seen you saying this several times, and have to assume it arises from a misunderstanding of the origins of the term meta. It refers, correctly IMO, to the game within, or in reference to the actual game of age of sigmar (or whatever). The meta game in this sense is the game of trying to predict how others will play the game (eg what lists they will use, what units will be common in this instance) and gain an advantage at this stage. Yes people sound annoying when they use it, but are the using it incorrectly? I don't think so. Also language is fluid and it's quite clear what people mean when they use it in this sense so probably not worth working yourself up over?

    AoS 2 - Ironjawz Discussion

    yeah was frustrating, especially as I could take an endless spell but couldn't cast it ? yeah low model count and was a big deal, but can't see a way around it without taking 30 ardboyz, but then I think one of the things the list needs is more units for the waagh, and a big unit of ardboyz wouldn't help with that. Brutes did feel like they could easily get left behind, and swapping them for GGs would make the waagh easier, but they definitely felt more reliable in combat, so swings and roundabouts really.

    I ran this at B&G: Allegiance: DestructionMortal Realm: HyshLeadersMegaboss on Maw-Krusha (440)- General- Trait: Prophet of the Waaagh! - Artefact: Aetherquartz Brooch Megaboss on Maw-Krusha (440)- Artefact: Mirrored Cuirass BattlelineUnits5 x Orruk Brutes (180)3 x Orruk Gore Gruntas (140)5 x Orruk Brutes (180)3 x Orruk Gore Gruntas (140)3 x Orruk Gore Gruntas (140)BattalionsBloodtoofs (120)Ironfist (180)Total: 1960 / 2000Extra Command Points: 2Allies: 0 / 400Wounds: 103 Ended up 1-4, which seems to have been pretty standard for Ironjawz players at the event, but was a lot of fun to play and I was enough in all the games that I would probably want to give it at least another tournament (Friday was my first game of AoS 2) before I decided to change it. Game 1 was gnarlroot Sylvaneth with Alarielle, Durthu and TLA. I gave him first turn, then killed alarielle turn one, got the double and killed durthu and a unit of dryads. At this point we both thought I had it sewn up, but he had summoned a unit of scythe hunters turn one, and between them and the TLA, who was almost always -2 to hit he ended up tabling me. Couldn't deal with him constantly summoning units of dryads, all the minuses to hit, and it was relocation orb and the movements all went his way. Game 2 was Beasts of Chaos on escalation, which is a bad scenario for me, as both MKs had to start in the far corner, so I'm forced to hold out to turn two or three to set off the waagh. As it was he had 5 points by the time it all kicked off and even though I almost tabled him he made good use of ambushing and the herdstone summoning to keep enough objectives to stop me winning. Game 3 was Sureheart Stormcast on total commitment, bit of a result considering the scenario shafts their gameplan. I think my strategy was sound but I played it completely wrong. Decided to take my two home objectives turn one then stick everything down one side to hold one on each side of the board after that, but I mis-read his deployment (and also think I had memories of vanguard wing in the back of my head) and instead of ploughing into 30 libs which I could have taken, I went up against evocators and retributors and got my army taken off. Also was sloppy and pulled the evocators into combat when I didn't need to. Game 4: Stormcast again, I forget the scenario. My big mistake in this game was the same as I'd made a few times over the weekend, I saw an opportunity for a maw krusha to kill something, sent it off on it's own then got taken apart, instead of holding back till I can get everything in. This time it was a unit of dracolines, also failed a charge with the pigs because I'd kept them out of 8 when I didn't need the d3, but did need their bodies on an objective. You live and learn. Game 5 my opponent didn't turn up so I played another Ironjawz player! We played blood & glory, he had gordrakk and the ironfist, two warchanters and a fungoid. First turn was cagey and I think we both felt bad playing it like that, so I moved forward enough to give him a charge, but left the maw krushas covering each other, he used gordrakk to take one off, then I got up to +7 attacks and went back with everything else, taking out a huge chunk of his army. He rolled badly for a couple of combats and I could get around the board with charges to nab the objectives for a major at the very end of turn 5. Overall was a huge amount of fun, and ended up on over 6k kill points, not bad considering I wasn't including summoned units and I lost 4 games. I think if I'd been a bit more practised I could have won at least one more game so will definitely give the list another run out. No magic should be a big draw back, but I like not having anything to think about, and I don't think IJ do it well enough to focus on it, although I would be interested to try out a weirdfist.
  14. The obvious issue was the pairings going AWOL going into game 2 day one, which led to a big delay starting, round 2 being cut short and all the pairings having to be read out over the tannoy. I know that some players scores were wrong during the event, which led to incorrect pairings, and that scores seem to have changed a couple of times since the event. It might be that they were being corrected, or soft scores were being added in, and I haven't seen anyone raise an issue with their total score since the event, but it was enough to be leery of the scores that are in there.
  15. I don't know how much of it was app and how much of it was users, but BCP resulted in a huge snarl up at B&G, and I wouldn't trust the scores in it 100% for this tournament
