    AoS 2 - Gloomspite Gitz Discussion

    On another topic, do you guys think there is any use for Zarbag's Gitz warscrolls in matched play? I'm sure they are fun to try out but we do not lack for warscrolls to try out. I have uses for most of the models... madcap shaman, 5th fanatic, Herder for old squigs, alterate infantry, etc, but just wondering if anyone plans to play the warscrolls regularly.

    I agree with all your points. But, if you were to take the average "price per sprue" of Gloomspite, and compare it to other factions, I think you'd find it much higher. One large factor could be that grots are just so diminutive. it takes less plastic to make the infantry, and even the "big" kits should not be too out of scale with the rest of the army. The models are amazing, tons of detail, takes as long to paint as a "bigger model" so from many perspectives it is the same value. But I suspect there may be a feeling as people open these boxes of "wow. just one sprue huh? usually i get 2-4" The prices points are pretty standard these days. Perhaps though they could have included more weapon options, or basing material. They really talked that up in articles and product pages but from what i've seen so far the amount of "extra bits" aren't really that crazy. Want a 4th Dankhold troggoth in your army? You'll have to use a duplicate head, and a duplicate weapon.

    The Rockguts are similar in size to the Fellwater Troggoths, if you have those. They stand taller but are lankier (compared to the Fellwater. Overall I am disappointed by the price of plastic in the gloomspite release. I compiled a list of the new models and how much plastic you get vs the price. Of course this is not the only metric to value kits with, but i think it is an important one. Sure the digital splicing has gotten better (less bits needed) and placement of bits on sprue has gotten more dense (less sprue needed), but I think it is clear prices are going up from the perspective of model count/size per $ going down. Looking at the list below, The "Hoppers" stand out as the only decent deal, which makes sense, people were worried it was 5 and releived that it was 10. That seems fair. Sneaky Snufflers, which are 33% as many sprues for 80% the price, seem the worst deal to me. I am ok with Skraggrot even though he's technically the worst deal, being the leader of the faction and all. The "big" kits turned out to not be so big, and are only half the plastic of many factions "big kits". (sorted "worst deal" to "best deal") Skraggrot - 1 small sprue. 8 bits. $35 Sneaky Snufflers - 1 medium sprue. 30 bits. $40 Gobbapalooza - 2 small sprues. 44 bits. $50 Mangler Squig - 1 large sprue - 61 bits $80 Dankhold Troggoth - 2 medium sprues - 55 bits $65 Fanatics - 2medium sprues. 45 bits. $40 Rockgut - 3 medium sprues. 91 bits. $60 Squig Herd - 2 medium sprues. 70 bits. $45 Hoppers - 3 medium sprues. 140 bits. $50 Loonshrine - 2 large sprues - 32 bis $60 Note: 1 large sprue ~ 2 medium sprues ~ 4 small sprues (I think, not positive on small sprues)

    I think you want the astrolith bearer for d3 points, +1 to casting, and the reroll hits buff. The EOTG does not really summon that much stuff. about a 1 in 3 chance to summon. something each turn. so in 3 turns, you'll get a couple of summons, on average. What are you wantitng to summon... skinks? your partner brought the bodies. units of 20 skins won't do much. terradon riders could be useful. I would try 1 eotg, then add a starpriest (to cast cogs for the slann), then perhaps add some punch?

    8. Such that if you were to buy a second box, you'd have 3 units of 5 plus 1 spare. Many people convert the 16th into a "Saurus Old Blood on Cold one". I think it would be safe to do that with one of your extras as you're probably always going to have an odd number

    Destruction Rumour Thread

    That's the 2nd battletome that references them (KO mentioned them, and that is almost 2 years old). Miniatures always come first a GW right? That suggests to me that at least some miniatures have been designed and it's only a matter of time!

    The Rumour Thread

    While there are usually teasers or rumors beforehand, the Hammerhal Herald is very often topical. There were 3 about beastmen, at least the first one was before the reveal. The 3 headed khorne dog had a post before the mini was announced or revealed FEC got one before that box set was revealed "Do not Look at the Moon" came out a week before Gloomspite reveal, but after a teaser that the next trailer was destruction (and badmoon related)

    you can see the sprue on the store. the face/hood are a bit, the crown has left/right bits, and the body has the back of the head. not a super straight forward swap, and it would be a shame to butcher such a great model!

    AoS 2 - Gloomspite Gitz Discussion

    Um there's no way the model fits on a 40mm base. No one knows the official base size as it's never been published and the webstore doesn't specify a base size. We will have to wait until GW adds it to the official base size doc. Hopefully in a couple of weeks with the battletome FAQ.

    The Rumour Thread

    Soul wars is the current "easy-to-build starter set", it won't be eclipsed soon. All other box sets GW releases are discount boxes of existing sprues. GW does not fill discount boxes with brand new product, it's counterproductive to their obligation of maximizing profits. This is why you don't see battleforces or start collecting boxes until ~1yr after models have been released.

    Even using them sparingly (which is what I did when I played with mine), they wear out very quickly. I would say roll them 10 times, into a cardboard box, and there is noticable wear. roll them 100 times and they are probably unreadable. Using them as wound counters, they will probably still wear out before very long. It is possible I received a bad batch, but I doubt it. I just don't think the dice were a well designed product. Before anyone says they are just meant as novelty - If you pay $30USD for something labeled "dice", you should expect to be able to use them as "dice" for more than 1 day without them being destroyed. Took them back to my flgs and got me some real squigs instead. (kudos to my flgs for letting me return that garbage)

    warscroll cards are great. especially the new format. most warscrolls really don't change... every now and then a rule on one will change. These were just updated, with 2.0 in mind. I'd be surprised if more than 1 or 2 changed over the next couple of years....(out of 35-40 warscrolls!) way better than having to look up everything on your phone. I feel rude to my opponent actually when i have to spend a lot of time looking up stuff on my phone.

    Greenskin start collecting gone

    pretty sure they are just selling through their stock of greenskinz. the boss is no longer available, and he was part of the SC box... You can find them all over the internet if you want one. but i'd get one sooner rather than later.

    Actually, since there is only 1 option for a warboss on foot that has no squig, I would say you could play any warboss on foot that has no squig, and there is no ambiguity. There actually aren't any weapon options for any of the grot heroes now, so your opponent shouldn't care what weapons are modeled. Here is the flow chart for determining visually if a model is a loonboss: is it a single grot model? yes is it a wizard? no is there a Squig? no It is a "Loonboss"

    Not sure but really disappointed the loonboss don't have an option that doesn't have that goofy helmet. im sure many like it but would have been nice to have an option, and that sprue seems sparse enough. I Guess anyone that doesn't like it better snap up a grot warboss=P I will probably play skarsnik since they have the same CA. may eventually get goofhead for when i need the 30 points.
