  1. I've seen a fair bit of love for Flesh Hounds lately--why do people like them? (Besides the beautiful new plastic models!) Is it just cheap screening wounds?
  2. Lovely, cheers to you and Grimrock! Here is what I'm working on: Leader: Bloodsecrator (+1 attack seems to be for all Khorne so can pump up the Bloodletters or Bloodthirsters) Slaughterpriest Bloodthirster of Insensate Rage (General with Thermal Rider Cloak for maximizing threat range) Bloodthirster of Insensate Rage Wrath of Khorne Bloodthirster Battleline: Flesh Hounds ×5 Flesh Hounds ×5 Bloodletter ×30 Other: Bloodcrushers ×6 (to get the d3 MW on the charge) Wrath-Axe prayer Tyrants of Blood (new name!) battalion
  3. Hey, hope everyone is staying safe, using this quarantine to get back into Sigmar (left right before Khorne got the updated battletome, ironically). Picked up the battletome and want to get back in. I LOVE the Khorne Daemon models, but don't want to take many mortals if I don't have to. Looking over recent conversations in this thread, it seems most competitive lists are built around blocks of mortals getting buffed to have tons of extra attacks. Can a list focused around any of the Daemons (either big like multiple Bloodthirsters, or smaller ones like Bloodletters and Bloodcrushers) be g
  4. I think it's pretty absurd that you can kill artillery crew members instead of the crew and the machine having a collective pool of wounds... a very poor design decisiom especially when Warplightning Cannons are way stronger and have to be killed as one model Oh well, anyone running a heavy Ironweld Arsenal army is going to be cool in my eyes regardless of how they do!
  5. No one knows their own faction's tricks, what makes it work on the battlefield, and how to counter it than the people that play it. For example, as a competitive Slaanesh player, I would say things I hate to see are: * Lots of 1 wound screening models * Shooting like the Stormcast Ballistas that can put out of a horrifying amount of shots at close range. Volume of attacks matters much more than quality of attacks because we have mediocre saves and no ability to stack defensive bonuses like Order lists can do (outside of maybe 1 Pretenders KoS in the list that can be built rath
  6. Anyone tried using a Rogue Idol with their Spiderfang force? At 400 points he's pricey but seems like a great fit. He gives +1 to casting rolls and +1 to bravery to all Grot units so he can buff all of our units. And is a nice beatstick to either tank damage or punish the opponent for focusing down our Arachnaroks instead I also think it's excellent in the Rule of Cool category, can't wait to put some webs all over those boulders
  7. From your description of behavior, you did things exactly right--don't sweat it! It's also a tiny sample size--if someone is the friendliest player in the world, but runs into one person in a bad mood, they're not going to win best sport. I think Sportsmanship scores in tournaments are absurd, even though I view being a good sport as very important. Largely because of the reasons you mentioned, people feel good after winning and bad after losing and attribute this feeling to their opponent's behavior. And people can use it vindictively to get back at opponents that beat them, especially
  8. Interesting comment! I noticed you lumped Spiderfang Grots in with the Greenskinz--what's your reasoning for that? I've only ever seen Spiderfang lumped into Moonclan. (I say with fear, having 1500 points of Spiderfang...)
  9. I know some of the big 40K tournaments provide their own dice at the final tables, this would have to be done at every table for big money tournaments
  10. Why do you say this? Variance is an important part of the game and if anyone can't accept that then they shouldn't play. I had to learn this myself as a poker player, haha There are so many rules balanced around random things that trying to remove randomness yourself will most likely just leave everyone confused and with a ruleset that makes an already leaky ruleset even less balanced. For example, I know Thanquol can do 2D6 mortal wounds every shooting phase. That is very different tactically than someone that can do 7 or 8 MW every shooting phase, even though just giving him 7.5 MW of s
  11. You joke, but I actually did pick up 40K because I wanted a shooting focused game to balance out AoS (and wanted another army to spread Nurgle's blessings with...) @Hannibal do the Free Peoples appeal to you? Some really cool shooting synergies and can make very powerful gunlines
  12. Love the models and the fluff! You've got an interesting force going and I wish them luck as they bring devastation to the realms
  13. Those Sylvaneth are brilliant! Looking forward to seeing more of your work around here, and welcome to TGA
  14. I feel a lot of the pet peeves listed here are partially the fault of the people upset for not saying anything. I find in general wargamers (I mean this with no offense, there is nothing wrong with different types of personalities) are more likely to lack the social skills or confidence needed to confront someone firmly so they let themselves get run over. If you suspect someone is bending the rules, or touching people's minis, or proxying too many models, or whatever--what's the difficulty in saying firmly "You shouldn't do [that activity they are doing] because it makes the gaming expe
  15. I agree with Marc that the winners deserve the focus and I will say nothing further in this thread. Congrats to everyone who participated and everyone have a good day.
