    AoS 2 - Ironjawz Discussion

    In my defence I lent my Ironjawz to @domus as he had travelled over from America and he managed to place best destruction meaning Da Ghostwulfz have retained it for all three years of FHGT I was a very proud megaboss on Sunday ?
  2. Grand convocation cleansing phalanx vanguard wing lords of the storm soulstrike brotherhood (could also include skybourne slayers and warrior brotherhood in as well but they aren’t in the book) as for stormhosts you need to tailor your list to the stormhost I.e any list that has a big shooting unit of 10-15 models and a fighting unit of similar size using the anvils of Heldenhammer stormhost is going to do well if played properly. Match this to a formation such as VW, or Lords of the storm and you will have a better combined force. Staunch defender is great but effectively 30 judicators shooting per turn doing damage 2 on wound rolls of a 6 is arguably a lot stronger add in bless weapons and have 2 wound rolls per 6 to hit as well, rerolling 1s to hit (azyros) and if played properly will outshine staunch every time and that’s the real kicker “played properly” a lot of Stormcast players I face lack that abilty because they have spent 2 or 3 years using exploits to win (knight azyros WBH or vanguard wing) the Les TM stardrake build was strong not because of the drake being so overpowered (that helped) it was because it was the most balanced list in the meta at the time and had limited auto-lose match ups and even in those it could pull off a win with solid play and a little luck. The sce chat has gone the same way a lot of people are looking for that auto charge (Gavriel) or janky exploit (hammers bringing back 20 sequitors) rather than actually looking at the combos and thinking about what they can do with them.
  3. Plenty of great Stormcast lists in the new book and 4 of the 6 stormhosts are worth using with the right army over staunch defender. I think Stormcasts have been refined further into a balanced force which will mean you have to try harder to win but should at least feel you are “in” with a chance in most games with very few if any traditional “auto-lose” match ups. As for formations at least 5 are playable and could build a decent army around with the right stormhost and strategy. at a 5 game event I’d expect a 4-1 as very achievable a 5-0 or 3-2 will come down solely to match ups (and potentially luck)

    AoS 2 - Ironjawz Discussion

    Best thing to do is email the FAQs team and get an official answer however I have always played it as a retreat from combat because the ironfist says “makes its move in the same manner as the movement phase except it cannot run” if you move out of 3” in the movement phase this is a retreat. Doesn’t mean I’m right at all so a clarification from GW would be excellent but that’s how I have always played it at least

    Only deploy 1 realm gate for Bloodtoofs but if another is on the board but players can use the new rules for them you can now stack Waaagh and Mighty Waaagh so command points can be used to use these more than once. I’ve yet to do a MEGA-Waaagh of more than 3 but with a 6 rolled that was 4 extra attacks and my footboss with destroyer soloed a black coach and my Mawkrusha killed 20 grimghast reapers! Who needs fancy maces or celestial lightning to deal with the supernatural, just waaagh energy brah!

    Also don’t forget that the weirdnob when he casts the cogs or balewind only gets one more cast that turn but 2 next turn., because he uses one to cast the endless spell. Otherwise I agree with @broche you need the brutes to be in 2x5 or failing that drop cogs and second shaman for an extra 5 man but to maximise the weirdfist ?

    BLACKOUT - Results, Feedback & Lists

    Great event again Chris, well organised, good food, excellent facilities, good access to drinks and even a shop to wander around and dream of new armies! Excellent pack, as a non summoning army who can only fight in combat (ironjawz) being able to score the kill points for when an opponent gets a free 300 extra points of models to me felt fair, those models appear from no where and score objective points. I like the fact it didn’t effect the game result (I.e you only counted them towards the tiebreaker score not the minor victory result if people drew on objectives). Good use of the new rules too I have a slight issue with movement after teleport but that’s the rules not your pack! 5 fantastic opponents in Ritchie, Nick, Dan B, Stu C and Dan G would happily play any of you guys again! Will be coming back again next year

    This was picked up in a recent WhatsApp discussion and the FAQ team have been emailed hopefully will be clarified in the upcoming errata!

    A Monster Hunter's romp through AoS 2

    Was a great battle Ian and as expected your boys were more interested in sniffing each other’s bones rather than have a proppa fight ?? I think I scored the 4 point objective the second time and then T4 got 7 instead of 9 and you have missed off 2 points for yourself somewhere making the final score 23-21 but its the same gap so the result is all that the history books will remember! (For your readers benefit) my MK had jade diadem, footboss Ghyrstrike and weirdnob Da Boss Skewer. The Wurgog mask once again showed why I need to take some mortal wound protection on the MK but I feel it difficult to do so because that’s in Asqy and Hysh (Da Ghostwulfz are Ghur/Ghyran) so will be trying out Asqy items next game me thinks ? so close the last two times I’ll get you next time!

    @sporadicMike nice list I really like the idea of the Doppleganger cloak will be really keen to see how you get on with it!
  14. Great pack @Chris Tomlin glad to see your leading the way again with how the game should be played. The add on rules are fun and for armies without fancy new books extra spells and command abilities are a welcome addition! I did notice a mistake in the pack though I think you meant to write “impenetrable gloom” for the Ulgu Realmscape! I didn’t want to point it out because it’s a really ,really, really “cough” nasty pain for Ironjawz armies but thought I’d be remiss not to point it out... ??
