    AoS 2 - Maggotkin of Nurgle Discussion

    glottkin +1 attacks to putrid blightkings is not that strong. it increases their damage by 33%. So does rerolling hits of 1 I think. This ability is much better on Marauders and Plaguebearers. Really any other unit including heroes. BK benefit the least from it. HoD's ability, assuming you have all mortals, reduces all damage by 33% (within range) Honestly i find that the glottkin is usually the target, and without HoD he is very squishy. You also start with extra command point from the blight cyst, and some games you may not use a command point first round , so it's possible to use both command abilities same turn for 1-2 turns. LoP has same ability as LoA but only for blightkings and is a lot cheaper. 10 Blightkings in 1 unit is usually not 100% effective. Hard to get 10 x 40mm bases in combat. I could stomach 1 unit of 10 easier than 2. Not suggesting what to do, just things to think about

    AoS 2 - Maggotkin of Nurgle Discussion

    wanted to share a list I'm going to play this weekend. Finally finished painting Archaon and my plastic GUO. I am set on using those models + glottkin, just for fun. Harbinger seemed like the next best thing to go in there. There's not much room after that, so I put 2 units of blightkings and all I had room for was 5 chaos warriors... Spells/Artifacts seemed pretty straight forward but let me know if you disagree. Blades of Putrification on Archaon with +2 attacks is an average of 4.5 MW, for anyone wondering....(27 average attacks, almost as good as a unit of 10 BK without deaths heads... if you can even get all 10 BK into combat...) I figure i will summon groups of 5 plaguebearers at every chance to chase objectives or slow down / harass enemy units, while I just try to table my opponent basically. The biggest risk is having 7 drops and getting shot at before I can use HoDs command ability. Allegiance: Nurgle LEADERS Archaon (660) - General - Lore of Foulness : Plague Squall The Glottkin (420) - Lore of Malignance : Blades of Putrefaction Great Unclean One (340) - Bile Blade & Doomsday Bell - Artefact : The Witherstave - Lore of Virulence : Favoured Poxes Harbinger of Decay (160) UNITS 5 x Putrid Blightkings (160) 5 x Putrid Blightkings (160) 5 x Chaos Warriors (90) -Hand Weapon & Shield TOTAL: 1990/2000

    AoS 2 - Maggotkin of Nurgle Discussion

    hey guys. The 2017 GHB was very clear that you could not add models to a unit past the original size of that unit. The 2018GHB has very short rules for matched play, and this is not there. It's not in the core rules either. Some rules, like Nagash's deathly invocation, return slain models to a unit. The Plaguebearer icon bearer however, just "adds" models to the unit. So, in AoS 2.0, can I exceed the starting model count for a unit? Does it matter for a unit at 10 vs a max unit of 30? If not, if you can point me to the rule, errata, or Q/A please

    The Rumour Thread

    I don't think seraphon needs any help generating interest. It's one of the most popular ranges. It's also one of the largest. Second most warscrolls after Stormcast? Think of how many factions have nothing so far in AoS (not even first battletome). Sure, Seraphon have a few resin models, but it's mostly plastic, and they have a hard time keeping a lot of it in stock. I think we are a few years off still.

    AoS 2 - Seraphon Discussion

    Um what's your math on the engines? I calculated 35% chance per engine to get 20 skinks. So you'll get on average 20 a turn. It was much better before kroaks command ability nurf. Once your engines take some wounds it will shut down their summoning, you have nothing to really protect your heroes... Very easy to miss on all 3 engines for 2 turns (8% chance. Much higher to only get 20). Fun list tho

    The Rumour Thread

    Actually like the Gork/Mork Rumor, few thoughts: 1. Orktober - Are they serious about the whole month being green dudes? Or is this really just speedfreeks and a battletome? 2. Goblin book I get. Moonclan, Spiderfang, other goblins have good flavor too. Orruk book. I don't get. Ironjawz and Bonesplitterz each have a tome. The other orruks are old and don't have enough flavor to survive. We don't need a book covering all the orruks...

    Can you give us anything else? We still waiting on that Seraphon battletome from you BTW. Same source?

    Yeah, I mean 40k you've got 10 factions of space marines and 4 factions of evil space marines...

    Underworlds is not AoS. Sure same universe from a hobby perspective, but from a gameplay perspective even though they give you a warscroll, they aren't really that viable. We have no idea what Wrath and Rapture even is, beyond it's in the AoS universe and features Slaneesh vs Khorne. Why are you predicting it comes out this year? Basically we are getting a battletome. Everyone here was hyped about getting a full faction refresh or two which seems like it may not happen.

    I think every nurgle player would buy the warband just to have some unique blightkings (the kit is great, I have 20 that look pretty unique, but 5 truly unique sculpts sounds good too!)

    AoS 2 - Daughters of Khaine Discussion

    Hey guys. Been collecting a while, slowly. Managed to snag a Cauldron kit and a Blood Coven on ebay this week, so I am technically at 2k. I am not sure how viable my collection is though, so I wanted to run it by you guys see what kind of list I could make. I have: Morathi 2x Cauldron kits 10x unassembled Aleves 10x Sisters of Slaughter 10x Witch Aelves 5x Melusai Blood Stalkers (obtained them assembled 🙁 have bits can maybe convert) 5x unassembled Melusai 10x Unassembled Khinerai 10x Warlocks My play group is flexible with WYSIWYG so I can play witch aelves / SoS , Melusai either way, etc as long as it's not too confusing. It's definitely 2k worth of stuff, but if I use Morathi as general (does it make sense to play her otherwise) then I have minimum 10 unit battlelines . If I use Bloodwrack Medusa general I can run a block of 30 aelves/SoS and 2x10 Blood Sisters... What Hero combinations make sense?

    The Rumour Thread

    Nurgle has a SC box, the Blightwar Box, and has been focused a lot lately (40k Deathguard, Rogue Trader, new Blood Bowl Team). As a Nurgle player, I think it's time for a breather from Nurgle At the same time, I have a hard time seeing them putting 2 Order Aelf battleforce boxes out at the same time. They did release them back to back, so maybe I'm off there. If they want a GA Chaos one, Nurgle does seem most likely (unless they do a Beasts of Chaos box!) Someone mentioned somewhere that Slaneesh vs DoK would be a great box set fluff wise, similar to a Blightwar box. I don't think that would happen for 14-16 months though (have to wait a while after Slaneesh release). That may make them hesitant to do a DoK battleforce box. I really hope we don't have to wait too long for some sort of DoK love though. More Blood Coven, SC box, reboxed witch aelves, Battleforce, they need something!
  13. Lore wise, Dhorgar is the same horse Archaon always had. The Chaos Gods were getting worried about Archaon becoming too powerful so they each sent a champion after him. Archaon defeated the champions and Dhorgar ate them, sprouting a head for each. Slaneesh is busy, so did not send a champion against Archaon

    For drone heavy list, Lord of Afflictions makes a great hero, he counts as a Daemon so can keep up with them to buff them. You can also convert one with a blightking and a plague drone, just have to chop the legs up some and maybe make him a greenstuff saddle=)
