  1. Bit off topic but I'm more impressed with Sylvaneth getting 6th with Triple Durthu + Alarielle (no hunters).
  2. I think it's actually pretty interesting that they appear to have not deviated much from original High Elf designs. I've always been under the impression that GW will want to heavily AOS-ify any new races to make them unique to GW. It's possible that the Teclis weapons are the only call back to the original lore/images and the rest of the range will be quite different, but I think they'll want to keep the aesthetic similar to the art we've seen. Perhaps they'll do a full 180 and make Teclis' elves fancy, noble order vampires.... perhaps they have the same soul problem as the deepkin, but are proud of their heritage and not wanting to seclude / hide themselves away? That could be a cool way to refresh high elves and vampires in one go lol. How big do people think Teclis will be? I think the options are a) Medium Size - Eg Similar to Alarielle on some sort of mount, probably not a monster, maybe some magical construct or swirly energy like the celestant prime or Eidolon of Mathlann size or perhaps similar to Karakros, maybe even with some henchmen? Morathi fits this category too I think. b) Nagash/Archaon size c) Normal elf size I think a) is most likely, though I'd like to see a Morathi type situation where he has 2 aspects, maybe even a twins thing with Tyrion or a light/dark thing with Malerion.
  3. I'm late to this discussion but those are my thoughts exactly. I haven't bought a black library book for probably over a year since I've had an Audible subscription. Admittedly my reading time has been minimal, so that's where audio books while driving have been a great help. The last thing I read in a physical format was ADB's Night Lords trilogy and a half finished Fear to Tread (HH series). Since then, I've listened to about 8 or 9 HH audio books and I'm almost up to date with them. I think I'm about 4-5 away from being current. After that, I'll start jumping into AOS stuff I think. Keen to catch up with Gotrek. But in general, Black Library is expensive. They still price their stuff like every book is a large, hard cover collectors edition. And while that has it's place, it's not the majority of the market. The fact that some of their books only come out in the cheaper soft cover versions months later certainly doesn't help. It's like those dual box limited characters all over again. At the end of the day.... why would I pay $20+ for a physical book, when I can have someone read it to me for $16?
  4. It's just wyldwood thinned down with contrast medium (about 1:1 or 1:2) over a mostly white undercoat. I tried to do some zenithal preshading with the airbrush but anything darker than pure white made the colour greyish and washed out. So then I just undercoated mostly in white and let the contrast paint do most of the work. I will eventually do some highlighting of the wood, but I'll do all the base work on the army first so it's usable then do as many details as I get time for.
  5. It's mostly contrast paint doing some heavy lifting lol
  6. Will do. Right now I'm just desperately trying to finish the army. WIP Photo attached
  7. @Trevelyan Awesome thanks for the feedback
  8. The other units all get rerolls too. I imagine the hunters will roll around with Drycha. She can cast mirrorpool to keep up with any teleports. I couldn't really fit outcasts with the two big girls and enough generic heroes to make use of it. I like the flexibility of having 2 + 1 hunter units. If I had more dryads I'd consider summoning them and that would probably change the list a bit. I don't care much about the Gnarlroot trait.... The winterleaf one is just as average. It's all about the items. Only one of them can have throne right? Or can they both have it but only cast it once? In any case that's what the chalice was supposed to be for while alarielle had the spell. Cheere for the input though. Winterleaf is probably the easier option for someone with so little experience. I like the Gnarlroot version but it's probably harder to play.
  9. OK hive mind. I need some last minute list advice. I think I've narrowed it down to 2 options. Tournament will use full ghyran rules including all the extra spells. Option 1 - extra hero (arch rev) and a command point. Could also be winterleaf with the arch rev carrying the items. Allegiance: Sylvaneth - Glade: Gnarlroot Alarielle the Everqueen (600) - Deepwood Spell: Throne of Vines Drycha Hamadreth (320) - Deepwood Spell: Regrowth Branchwraith (80) - General - Trait: Nurtured by Magic - Artefact: Chalice of Nectar - Deepwood Spell: Verdurous Harmony Arch-Revenant (100) 5 x Spite-Revenants (60) 5 x Spite-Revenants (60) 5 x Tree-Revenants (80) 6 x Kurnoth Hunters (400) - Scythes 3 x Kurnoth Hunters (200) - Greatswords Spiteswarm Hive (50) Extra Command Point (50) Total: 2000 / 2000 Extra Command Points: 1 Allies: 0 / 400 Wounds: 96 or Option 2 - more bodies, extra tree revs for teleports - one less hero Allegiance: Sylvaneth - Glade: Gnarlroot Alarielle the Everqueen (600) - Deepwood Spell: Throne of Vines Drycha Hamadreth (320) - Deepwood Spell: Regrowth Branchwraith (80) - General - Trait: Nurtured by Magic - Artefact: Chalice of Nectar - Deepwood Spell: Verdurous Harmony 15 x Spite-Revenants (180) 5 x Tree-Revenants (80) 5 x Tree-Revenants (80) 6 x Kurnoth Hunters (400) - Scythes 3 x Kurnoth Hunters (200) - Greatswords Spiteswarm Hive (50) Total: 1990 / 2000 Extra Command Points: 0 Allies: 0 / 400 Wounds: 101 I'll have 20 dryads and 3 hunters for summons either way. Option 1 would probably also give me 10 tree revs for a summoning option if I get them finished in time. Thoughts?
  10. How do people use branchwraiths? I imagine they would just sit in or behind the first free wyldwood and pump out dryads? Wouldn't she be pretty protected being essentially out of sight to most things. So as long as you screen her from alpha charges, she should be pretty safe shouldn't she?
  11. Lol that's actually pretty funny. Would this still get the the DoT allegiance abilities? I guess so, although there's no DoT battleline. I assume the warriors still count as Tzeentch Battleline even though they're allies? Would this be a DoT army or a S2D army? Coz then you're losing the tzeentch spells and the -1 to hit demons and the fate point summoning right? That being said the S2D spell lore has some nice stuff too lol. I guess you could swap the warriors for acolytes anyway. As for "doing much", the army is all about tar-pitting objectives (or the whole table) and throwing spells around. It doesn't really need to do much more than that.
  12. I don't think the list depends on it though. Like I said, you're really only playing 40pts for a 2 spell caster... who cares if a few of those spell casts are wasted? It's not like you're being "inefficient" with the points lol. Anyway this was more of an exercise in how absurd the rules can be. I doubt anyone is really going to go out and buy/paint 300 horrors, 6 gaunt summoners and 2-3 Lords of Change (plus whatever battleline you want to fit in).
  13. entirely depends on the event. The biggest one in the world (Cancon this month) will use all the Ghyran spells. This has come up in various TGA and FB threads before. Seems like the majority of tournaments use realm spells and/or realmscape features to some extent though they're often TO curated and somewhat limited. EDIT: Seems like LVO later this month also uses the full realm spells, different realm each round.
  14. see my post earlier. You don't even need realm spells. There's 6 lore spells you can cast without needing enemy targets, and mystic shield. That's before endless spells. Then next turn you can use use the warscroll spell and arcane bolt if you're in range. So arguably you'd be potentially wasting 4 spell casts if you don't buy endless spells. But between all the horrors, acolytes, and a LOC that you may have already summoned, you're still going to be casting like 15+ spells that turn. having realm spells just makes it easier. like I said earlier though 6 Gaunts is silly, but even taking 2-4 is very strong and then you're not wasting any spells. In any case, it's a 40pt 2 spell caster that comes with a 200pt unit.
