  1. @Greasygeek that table is ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ. What's the paint formula used?
  2. To further illustrate the point above. First pic is the royal family battalion. None of the unit entries are in bold. But the battalion description has Courtier in bold, meaning that the bonus applies to any of the courtier options (varghulf, crypt ghast, crypt infernal & crypt hunter). Second pic is the attendants at court battalion. In the battalion bonus Abhorrent Ghoul King is in bold. This means that the bonus applies if your general is any of the ghoul kings (GKoZD, GKoTG and regular GK). The royal family unit requirements does not allow the 2-6 ghoul kings to be any of the options, because it's not listed in bold and the entry above also clearly shows the ghoul king on various mounts.
  3. This only applies when the unit is written in bold type. The royal family battalion clearly states that the 2-6 regular ghoul Kings and is not written in bold type. (See attached pic from Khorne book as reference. )
  4. Currently working on 36 myrmourns, which have been removed from their scenic bases (as much as possible). Also finished (minus the basing) a mini resculpt of Garkorr, to be used as a vamp lord ally. (Top pic is in darker lighting for showing paint job. Bottom pic is under normal lights for showing bling bling chrome of the paint job. I'm not a good painter by a long shot, but chuffed with how this looks.)
  5. @Vasshpit those are gorgeous. What sculpting putty are you using? It doesn't look green, so assuming it's not greenstuff.
  6. 6 out of 8 being Order seems a bit much tbh. I think the dark elf warband is a precursor to the long awaited shadow elves, rather than 7/8 new warbands to represent the various realms. But who knows at this point
  7. @MKsmash cheers for the help. Not being able to test the lists is tricky. I might swap out the CP for pendulum. It's a good guarantee for mortals.
  8. Does it not help having spare for stuff like reroll charges or the Bloodgullet command ability? Should the points be used for stuff like endless spells maybe?
  9. Does it not come in handy turn 1 for giving the 2 x 12 gluttons battleshock immunity?
  10. As competitive as possible? (which I know without any FLoSHs, means that it's not that competitive ๐Ÿ˜‚) I was thinking Bloodrock, but even though with Bloodgullet and balewind, you can get 3 casts but only the single unbind. I figured the 5++ shrug would give a bit of a better longevity.
  11. OK Fellow Fatties What's your own versions of the ultimate Gutstar? With lockdown I'm doing lots of list building and I'm currently thinking: - Tyrant (General - 'Drop of red stuff' trait - 'Splatter-cleaver' relic) - Butcher ('Shrunken Head' relic - 'Blood Feast' & 'Ribcracker' spells) - Slaughtermaster ('Fleshcrave' & 'Greasy Deluge' spells) - 12 Gluttons, 12 Gluttons, 8 Ironguts, 2 Leadbelchers, Balewind, Extra CP. Running it in Bloodgullet with Goremand battalion. Overall is 3 drops, 1990pts. So what's everyone else's ultimate Gutstar? What tweaks/tips have people got for using their versions of Gutstar?
  12. @wayniac do both, it's very easy to do. Last year, locally our AoS scene was definitely tilted on the competitive side, which wasn't great for new players, so I started a narrative night as a counter. It's been a great success at bringing in new players, many of whom now want to play more competitive games. And the previous players are also really enjoying the fluffy games. It's a perfect symbiotic relationship that helps grow the community. The game needs both. The trouble is that these changes to local scenes don't just happen, you've got to put the effort in to make it happen (and it takes a lot of time and effort to make ๐Ÿ˜‚). So if you're feeling unsure about one or the other, look at what is more available locally and try to create something that it's opposite (eg. If fluffy is king locally, run some competitive events, and vice-a-versa.), you never know, the drive and pressure of organising could be your thing. But I wouldn't stress about armies and models, some are great, some will fall out of flavour. GW are a model company first, so selling models is the prime focus over coherent rules. And although their games are full of flaws, they are also fun and engaging to play, and above all, they are played using really nice models. So play with what you enjoy and have fun. (Also, the best tables at events are the middle/bottom tables, as that's where the less serious players are found, so embrace the middling positions, it's where you'll make more friends and have a better social experience ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜‚.)
  13. Tomb banshee, especially in this current ignore or have high bravery version of the game. To make her extra useless, take her as your general in a Nighthaunt army and give her the command trait 'Terrifying Entity'.
