    Examining The Stormcast in Light of New and Pending Releases

    I mean we can talk about nails and coffins for Liberators all we want. This year or next year there could be a new battleline unit that even outshines Sequitors. Impossible? Well imagine a horde battleline option for Stormcast that eliminates the needs for Skinks. "Legiors" at 80 points 4+ save for the same $$$ price as Vulkites. Don't act like no one would jump on a horde unit like that for SCE. That's just not fun hobby having to rebuy an entire new army every time a tome drops. And we have near yearly tome drops. I mean we as SCE players are partly to blame. Vanguard was a alternative but not considered "good" so I'm going to assume it didn't sell as well as GW expected. Bringing out Sequitors out as they are right now for 120 points was a very reckless design choice but I can understand it. Apparantly giving us alternatives won't make us buy new stuff so we got presented with "better" units. It probably was a big sale boost for GW.. But it makes me (and I'm probably not alone in this) wary of investing into my Stormcast army even though I like the concept of the army a lot. I bought 3 boxes of Beastclaw Raiders even though they aren't great because I'm pretty confident they won't release something like "Ironhorns" when the new BCR tome drops so the stuff I have right now will still be relevant (maybe not good) by the time they get an update.

    Liberators at 100 points were such a good standard. I really dislike how they messed with that by bringing out Sequitors. You can't make Seqs too expensive or reduce Libs.

    Just the CHANCE of getting +1 to hit is priceless for a BCR army. I run two butchers and getting the +1 to hit twice on a unit of Mournfang actually makes them very scary. And even if that all doesn't work you can always get mystic shield out of them. Which is very valuable for me. I basically have three chances at getting rerolling save rolls of 1 for my Frostlord.

    My goal at the moment is just hobby and game days. No specific tourney list or counter list. Minus to hit do suck. The hope I have right now is that Destruction will get a resurgence just like Death did last year. Just waiting that out while I paint my stuff. And when the new destruction stuff comes I pray that we get plastic Yeti's. But FEC didn't get their plastic Varlgulf so I'm kinda scared that we won't either. I know Thundertusks won't do much against Death. But neither do Stonehorns I feel. The Thundertusks at least has SOME pressure. And for your list. I was kinda scared it was going to be Gutbuster heavy. But this actually puts me over the edge and I will start collecting Gutbuster this year. The only thing I'm confused about are the 3 Ogor's with Iron fists? I thought they sucked because rend negates them? I do have 3 Ogors left from my Butcher conversion so if they are worth building that would be a cool way to use them up. And it's 25% of your TOTAL army. If you check warscroll builder it counts that list I posted as 8/2. Meaning it falls under the 25% of your army being allies rule and is legal. That's also what I have 2x2 Mournfang.

    I know we are not doing well. But I actually don't like the dirty snowball mechanic at all. And I don't own any yethee's so I try to run Stonehorns mostly. This is my this list most game days: Allegiance: Beastclaw Raiders Mortal Realm: Aqshy Butcher (140) - Pair of Stump Blades and Great Cauldron - Allies Butcher (140) - Pair of Stump Blades and Great Cauldron - Allies Frostlord on Stonehorn (420) - General - Trait: Everwinter's Master - Artefact: Thermalrider Cloak 4 x Mournfang Pack (320) - Gargant Hackers 4 x Mournfang Pack (320) - Gargant Hackers 2 x Mournfang Pack (160) - Gargant Hackers 2 x Mournfang Pack (160) - Gargant Hackers Stonehorn Beastriders (320) - Option: Blood Vulture Malevolent Maelstrom (20) Total: 2000 / 2000 Extra Command Points: 0 Allies: 280 / 400 Wounds: 111 But it's not cutting it against Death. Either they ignore rend or they swarm me with 1 dmg skeletons. Thundertusks at least have a chance at sniping their heroes. I was actually thinking of swapping the Maelstrom and Beastriders out for a Stonekard. But without Eurlbad he feels really weak. I kinda brushed the Tuskards aside because I that even with their innate heals I felt they were still fragile at 4+ save. And at 2k it's 720 points to field them. And I don't want to sacrifice the Butchers to help bring more body's on the table to defend them. Because I really like the butchers. Thus the option to run a Tusklord seems tempting to put everything on once chassis. I do hear you on the Endless spells though. I have been having trouble getting them off. And I don't think we ever used Triumph's in our games. I should look into it. What would you list at 2000 points if you had to make a list with two Tuskards and no yeti's?

    Yeah makes sense. But in current list the only I have is from two Butchers (and the Butchers are there to stay). So if I want to actually get him into combat I might be out of range of their heals. I have a ton of magic users with chaff in my meta. So my Stonehorns can get bogged down. Thus I want to try and use a Thunderlord so I have some flexibility. Snipe some heroes and then try and survive the chaff. I have two Thundertusk lists that I feel are not too cheesy but can still perform: Thunderlord. A more balanced and aggressive list. I could also swap out the Thundertusk Beastriders for Stonehorn Beastriders and add a 20 point endless spell: Allegiance: Beastclaw Raiders Mortal Realm: Ghur Butcher (140) - Pair of Stump Blades and Great Cauldron - Allies Butcher (140) - Pair of Stump Blades and Great Cauldron - Allies Frostlord on Thundertusk (420) - General - Trait: Everwinter's Master - Artefact: Gryph-feather Charm 4 x Mournfang Pack (320) - Gargant Hackers 4 x Mournfang Pack (320) - Gargant Hackers 2 x Mournfang Pack (160) - Gargant Hackers 2 x Mournfang Pack (160) - Gargant Hackers Thundertusk Beastriders (340) Total: 2000 / 2000 Extra Command Points: 0 Allies: 280 / 400 Wounds: 111 Tuskard. list build around keeping my Tuskard alive and him healing the Thundertusk Beastriders and having the Mournfang act as blockers: Allegiance: Beastclaw Raiders Butcher (140) - Pair of Stump Blades and Great Cauldron - Allies Butcher (140) - Pair of Stump Blades and Great Cauldron - Allies Huskard on Thundertusk (360) - General - Blood Vulture - Trait: Everwinter's Master - Artefact: The Pelt of Charngar 4 x Mournfang Pack (320) - Gargant Hackers 4 x Mournfang Pack (320) - Gargant Hackers 2 x Mournfang Pack (160) - Gargant Hackers 2 x Mournfang Pack (160) - Gargant Hackers Thundertusk Beastriders (340) Emerald Lifeswarm (60) Total: 2000 / 2000 Extra Command Points: 0 Allies: 280 / 400 Wounds: 110 Any thoughts on it?

    What is the best self healing Artefact available to us in the realms or factions? I want to try and run a ThunderLord. Is it still the pelt?

    Oops. Well I only have 2 50mm bases left. So I'll just go with 1 Tyrant and 3 Ironguts then. Just have to be creative with the two handed weapon part then.

    AoS 2 - Gutbusters Discussion

    I bought some Ogors to make two butchers for my BCR army (have enough bases to make three but I'm not sure I'll ever need three). I was thinking of using the remaining four Ogors to make the following: A. One tyrant, and three Maneaters? I have enough pistol bits to put on them. B. One tyrant and three Ironguts? But I don't have any 2 handed weapons atm. But I do have helmets and other armor pieces left. C. One tyrant, three normal Ogors. Not sure if I prefer this. Eventually I'll buy more Ogor boxes to make a Gutbuster army anyway. C. Make 4 Tyrants. What would be the smartest choice here?

    Yeah I don't like the grots models at all. But I can see them being strong on the table top. I also don't see a way to paint them up quickly since they have some unique details here and there. Using your suggestion of buying two boxes I came up with this list: Allegiance: Beastclaw Raiders Leaders Huskard on Stonehorn (340) - Blood Vulture Icebrow Hunter (140) Battleline 4 x Mournfang Pack (320) - Gargant Hackers 4 x Mournfang Pack (320) - Gargant Hackers Stonehorn Beastriders (320) - Option: Blood Vulture Units 12 x Ogors (400) - Pairs of Ogor Clubs or Blades - Allies Battalions Jorlbad (160) Total: 2000 / 2000 Extra Command Points: 1 Allies: 400 / 400 Wounds: 127 It really hurts not being able to add the butcher. But if i go destruction I would have to split up the Ogor unit. Maybe the icebrow hunter can be protected inside the unit of 12 Ogors. I dunno.

    AoS 2 - Beastclaw Raiders Discussion

    Yeah I'm going to make everything from the Ogor box and kitbash all of it. I don't want to to deal with resin models or old out of print packages. Not sure how I'll make the Irongut's weapons but I'll figure it out.

    I kinda want to expand my BCR into mixed Ogor. I have 3 SCB worth of BCR. What would be a decent 2k list using BCR and Gutbuster units?
  14. Pitloze

    AoS 2 - Beastclaw Raiders Discussion

    I'm at a bit of a fork in the road atm. The new Ogor pack is such a good deal that I'm considering abandoning staying solely BCR and go Destruction/Gutbusters. I have enough BCR bits left to make some Irongots and a Tyrant/Butcher or two. But I can also just get some Yethee's and try and make BCR work. What do you guys recommend?

    AoS 2 - Gutbusters Discussion

    The warscroll builder had an really nasty tease. It let you put Ironblasters in units. Which made them much better as it would reduce drops, lets you buff an entire unit with spells or butcher ability. It also made them much better allies for BCR.
