    LoN after grimghast reapers.

    I think there is some misinterpreting the direction of the nerfs. Of course direct nerfs wouldn’t be the way to do it, and I hope GW see that too. reapers are strong in LoN, as the title suggest. Reducing their points or any other direct nerf is a bad idea as stated by a few people now, which would really reduce NH’s effectiveness. what I was pushing for discussing was a LoN Perspective, as this is where they are abused. as @Cursed and @Smavo have suggested, other units should become a more appealing option. Units like GG and morghast just don’t compare to, reapers! I could see that reapers have to be allied in to LoN in future, toning them down a good deal! yet they would still be my go to unit. They still have better movement, bodies to score, could still regen through heroes and hit very hard! When compared to other options i love the morghast models yet can’t see my self fielding them anytime soon as reapers hit harder are more survivable and have better board presence. i definitely think units like GG and morghast need to be brought up, through some mechanic not just point adjustments to really compete with reapers.

    LoN after grimghast reapers.

    @Smavo, definitely agree with that. We need some more choices, GG are much slower (but I guess it’s irrelevant if summoned). But the flying on reapers make them very strong. infact I would love to run morghasts. just to clarify, I agree a direct nerf to reapers is bad. Also am enjoying the power we have in LoN, but even playing them within the legions, i can see it’s no entirely healthy,

    LoN after grimghast reapers.

    For night haunt, definitely no need for nerfs, and removing LoN keyword wouldn’t affect them but for LoN... well, when a unit can take out a unit of blight kings and marauders in a single turn... and then come back full strength for 1cp A nerf is warranted.

    Just saw that there was an errata to GB18, nothing on reapers, so maybe we’re safe for now??????

    LoN after grimghast reapers.

    So it’s become very clear that reapers are an extremely strong unit in LoN armies. They’re fast, have the bodies for objectives, can get VDM, regen and summoned back. In my games they have completely dominated. I have been expecting some sort of nerf, and I don’t think I’m the only one. So the questions are, what will the nerf be, and if reapers are no longer an option (whether there a better options or simply no longer available for LoN), what units will you be replacing them with. i expected them to no longer receive the bonuses LoN offers, which I think would still make them a decent choice. They won’t be around all game but can still be healed through heroes and still are hella offensive. though if they are nerfed harder, I’m really not sure what I’d replace them with. your thoughts?

    How to make a competitive list?

    So... I did some play testing with the first list, played against nurgle (loss, very close) seraphon (win, again very close) and ironjaws (win), dispossessed (hilarious win) Lady O, she did well, her spell is amazing, she’s a decent threat (although her mw’s output was foreseeably low against nurgle), she was great next to the skeleton blob, Have not really thrown her into combat yet so I’m hoping to get a little more for her points still. vlozd vs vhordrai, played both but in the end I really missed having vord there, he just consistently hits better. He also proved to be a great distraction, another immediate threat that needed to be dealt with, thus always having something heavy doing work I Was concerned with only having 20 reapers, but they were solid offensively. Can see the benefit of tuning 30, though I can forsee them being removed from lon, they are just so strong with the lon benefits. I will post up my battle reports when I get another second I will also continue to keep play testing. I feel it’s at a pretty good place but more games is always good.

    The cheese is real! I have started playing that to see which I prefer. I will update as I go :)

    How to make a competitive list?

    Pretty much what I did in the first list. Put in grimghast reapers, but switched out the coven/Skelly block for lady O for more debuff and buff spells as well as some nice mortal wound output. but I can see that it might be overkill and probably benefit more from filling out some units. grimghasts look great on paper, more manuverable and better than graveguard. Plus, like you said the hype is real. what about the coven throne do you like? It’s always something I brushed pass, but reading it again that command ability is nice. How do you use it?

    How to make a competitive list?

    I completely agree on Arkhan being a fragile general, unfortunately I don’t have much of a choice if I go sacrament. I could change legion but ultimately taking Arkhan with sacrament because he is a great caster. Lords of sacrament is so expensive for what it does, which is why I went away from it in the first list, glad to have another agree on that. As for summonable units, I’m not following. I’ll have 70 models which are sumonable and 4 heroes capable of healing bringing back. Could you elaborate on how many and which summonable units.

    How to make a competitive list?

    Hey all, so I’m trying to build a competitive death list, specifically LOS. With my limited experience with death I’ve come up with a couple of lists, I’d really appreciate some feed back, any changes to make, which list would be better, etc. Though for the sake of discussion is also like to read the lists you have been most successful with, whether it being your local meta or bigger tournaments. Strategies and battle reports are always welcome As for my lists; I am more partial to the first list, I feel it has better board presence (threats, not just chaff) and allows for some strategic flexibility, but have play tested lords of sacrament a little and the bonus to casting did go a long way. so, with the wealth of experience here, what are your thoughts? List one: Allegiance: Legion of SacramentLeadersArkhan The Black Mortarch of Sacrament (320)Necromancer (110)Necromancer (110)Prince Vhordrai (480)Lady Olynder, Mortarch of Grief (240)Battleline5 x Dire Wolves (60)5 x Dire Wolves (60)40 x Skeleton Warriors (280)- Spears.Units20 x Grimghast Reapers (280)Endless SpellsGeminids of Uhl-Gysh (40)Total: 1980 / 2000Extra Command Points: 0Allies: 0 / 400Wounds: 122 List two: Allegiance: Legion of SacramentLeadersArkhan The Black Mortarch of Sacrament (320)Necromancer (110)Necromancer (110)Prince Vhordrai (480)Battleline15 x Dire Wolves (180)10 x Dire Wolves (120)40 x Skeleton Warriors (280)- Ancient BladesBehemothsMortis Engine (180)BattalionsLords of Sacrament (130)Endless SpellsGeminids of Uhl-Gysh (40)Total: 1950 / 2000Extra Command Points: 2Allies: 0 / 400Wounds: 137 Cheers all, looking forward to reading your advice, lists and stories.
