    "Wood Elf" Army in AoS

    Can run a Gnarlroot Battalion of Sylvaneth and use sisters of the thorn as your order wizzard, you can then effectivly have 620 points of wanders. Sisters also work really well with a unit of 30 dryads. If you want to use more of the older models (warhark riders, why are they not wanderers) then you can use the compendium in an Order army freely.

    AoS 2 - Moonclan Discussion

    I always preffer Spears to get the greatest number of attacks. We can attack in 3 ranks with spears as apposed to 2 with swords. But you are correct you can get away with swords in the smaller unit size.

    AoS 2 - Beastclaw Raiders Discussion

    What you have is the setup for a Olwyr Alfrostun Battalion, if you have 6 mournfang there is your 2000 point list. as to your question, they are all fine. The most optimal would probably be the oppisite of what you have but the margin isn't great. i love the huskard on stonehorn when used in combination with a big unit (4+) of mournfang as anything able to alter the order of combat is huge imo.

    Which sylvaneth army looks better

    I second list 3, maybe have one unit of bows on the kurnoth (my personal prefference)

    Beasthammer at Blackout

    It gives +1 to hit so we hit on 3's something we generally can't do but really need. And has a once per game double combat for everything that charged. So if you can get all 5 of your units in one turn that is alot of hurt. People are adding cogs to make it likely to happen turn 1 and as it is likely your a 2drop army you can quite offtern pick who goes first.

    Order Army themed around Magic

    Yea i realised later the lord arcanum is actually quite bad. Yes the dragon would be better or a celestial huricanum and drop the balewind. Thought the Lord Arcanum would be a little bit more of a beatstick, but when i double checked he is really lackluster.
  7. A battle of the Grand Alliences would be cool, but i think it does make some things difficult. I don't think there would be a single GA Death list on the same power level as any of their factions. The other GA's it is a little harder to say that fact as Order Soup has gone pretty well and Destruction doesn't have much in the way of other alliegence traits. For Chaos any of the 3 battletome god armies is at an advantage over any other list so it makes it hard there as well. So at the end of the day i think it should be the best list in each GA, Faction or not. Leaving it open gives you the best of each GA as some have had more love than others.

You have a couple of heavy hitters ok battleline and a ton of debuffs. You shouldn't have to worry about enemy casters either. Just a few fun ideas.

    Order Army themed around Magic

    Sounds like a great idea. What you need to look at is the spells models have on their warscroll to see how it will interact with the army as a whole. I would start with a core of elf mages as they have some really good buff and debuff spells. The deepkin mages can stack -1 to hit, the Bloodwrack medusa has -1 to wound, loremaster can buff any single model, archmage give 6+ fnp to everyone within 18 of him. Once you find the spells you like that can be used on everything it is all about filling out the list. For battleline i would use Liberators just because they are the best all rounders and would suit the style imo. Remember units that also have bound spells like sisters of the thorn. Now you have me thinking i'll have a play and come up with an example that i would play with.
  10. Biggest addvice is don't but too much at once, as it can be daunting to sit down and start painting only to find you have been there for 2 hours and haven't finished one model (an over exageration but one to think about) Yes the big boxes give the best value to get into the hobby but it is also important to dip your toe in fist to see if it is something you enjoy. Easiest way to do this is find a small box or a hero you like the look of/feel of that army and have a go at that first. By all means look to see if there are cheaper ways to continue that force (for example not choosing skaven skyre becasue they only sell individual models at drug money) to see if it is a viable army for you. I think the best thing to get when you start is one of the boxes with paint and a brush. May not be the best value in the world but it is small, manageble and gives you everything that you need to start the hobby. And if you find you like the hobby but not that army you haven't invested much in your first army. https://www.games-workshop.com/en-GB/Scast-Paint-Set-Eng-spa-port-latv-rom-2018 Is £20 not bad to see how the hobby is.

    Anyone play against themself?

    I have done it a few times for 40k (don't have the armies yet for aos). I find the biggest pitfall is really wanting to see what happes if x does his big thing. When trying a new list you do want to see it work some sometimes you would do a sub optimal thing to make sure there is the opportunity for it to happen. While this is well and good to see if that effect is worth it, you also have to do it a couple of times to see how easy it is to stop. To do it properly you have to propbably run the lists against each other 3-5 times to see how it works. Anyway this is the same sort of thing as playing a teddybear picnic as a child, everyone does it. Just your teddybears are plastic men and your picnic is killing everyone 😆

    Advice/help in keeping to an army!

    I have found Having a Wife and Child realy eats into available income and also very good at reminding me that i don't need more plastic crack as i haven't finished painting the last lot i got, or all the models that she knows are hiding in the shed. Do understand the desire to get and build lots of armies. Due to the nature of my work i have a bit of time to theory craft way to many lists and look at too many cool minitures. I am trying to build a timeframe and wife approved modle purchases. But until i finish my 60 gitmob archers it is all a pipe dream.

    Braggoth's Beast Hammer

    The latest FAQ's have now stated that allies can't have artifacts of power. My take on the beast hammer is to also take a hunter and frost sabres to fill out battleline. I want all of my mournfang to have the +1 to hit.

    AoS 2 - Mixed Destruction Discussion

    Depending on the size of the wolf units they can do a bit with sneaky stabbing. But normal gitmob grots do really well as archers.
  15. Don't discount the grot shooting 61 shots that are 3+ 5+ still do a surprising amount. It is heavily impacted by dice rolls but what can you do. I have yet to get sneaky stabbing off and have not been dissapointed with them. Deffinitly worth the 270 points.
