  1. If you don't mind one duplicate, ossiarch bonereapers are solid as msu 🙂 (one duplicate because they only have 2 battleline options 😉 ) but my army is - leige kavalos, soulmason, boneshaper, soul reaper, 20 mortek guard, 10 mortek guard, 5 deathriders, 4 morghast harbingers, harvester, crawler. 🙂
  2. As a petrifex player I thought I'd weigh in a bit on this..... I chose petrifex based on the 3+save and cool colour scheme, I was rewarded further by some cool stuff and the hatred of the internet. My list is deliberately as varied as possible (leige, boneshaper, soulmason, soul reaper, 20 mortek, 10 mortek, 5 deathriders, 4 morghast, 1 catapult, 1 harvester) so that I can bring the cool stuff to the table. Having used them at tournaments (nothing top tier, I'm not that kinda player... but throne of skulls/etc), I find that when people know what they're doing, my army crumbles in sho
  3. Just curious.... amongst my many future project ideas is a stormcast vanguard army (as in vanguard models) Just wondering what people suggest a vanguard list would look like if I want it to be cool as possible.... happy to mix non vanguard stuff in, but would want it to be mostly vanguard. Every list I put together seems to throw a massive unit of long strikes in an anvils army and build around that- which seems boring... so any ideas for a more varied list 🙂
  4. Skim read lots of whining 😂 But I'll add that, from tos at the weekend, when I saw a grot boss on spider do 16 mortal wounds to my cavalry (killing them in one go) after planting 4 endless spells in front of my mortek... yeah that was a tough game. Gloomspite are more than capable against obr. Someone mentioned maggotkin. Is the blighting battallion that gives them rend not in favour any more? Cuz they should chew through just about any obr unit. Add drones/pusgoyles to get over the line and kill support stuff and they're golden... not seeing a big issue here... Bu
  5. Tanky units you have to avoid and kill the support first? It's been a thing since the early days of whfb, why is it an issue now all of a sudden? I don't see people claiming fyreslayers are the new cheese, despite hearthguard being both tankier and harder hitting than mortek (with better movement and deployment potential) same thing for so many other units. The only difference is mortek are new and as such are under more scrutiny. Give it a few months and people will have moved on to complain about the next big thing. Been a while since I saw anyone whine about grimghast... I remembe
  6. I'm sorry to hear that... I've been playing bonereapers since release and took them to throne of skulls last weekend... 4 wins and 2 losses, with one of those wins being a minor I scraped at the end of the last turn against spiderfang. There are weaknesses to the bonereapers, I don't have the time or inclination to list all of them here but I can safely say they were a challenge to use at the top tables, where my opponents were aware of those weaknesses and how to exploit them. So, a couple of pointers.... which are good things to know for any army... 1) unless you are packing a
  7. Consider slaughterpriests as a vampire base model... head swap and some bits... they look amazing
  8. Awesome, it looks like you're the kind of player I don't want to face anyway 👍 i started petrifex before I'd even read the book, their lore and colour scheme are cool.... but that makes me "the enemy" to a lot of people it seems.... so if people are that hung up about them they would "ban" them.... I'll be glad to avoid such a game. But constructive feedback.... I think literally the only thing I'd change is to make battallions HAVE to deploy as one drop. Doesn't change much, but there are match ups where you don't want to give away your deployment to your opponent so it makes
  9. Had my first game with my bonereapers yesterday.... my 4 morghast charged some arrow boys and killed one entire model, then we're shot a lot and charged by a rogue idol... they didn't last long Overall victory was achieved in the end, but I think spooning my dice that hard wasn't the best showing the morghast could have had 😄
  10. Just curious.... I'm taking this list to throne of skulls next year and wondered what issues and positives people think I'll run into with it... aiming to some decent variety: (Petrifex) Liege kavalos - general, petrifex relic Soulmason- spell tbc Soulreaper - spell tbc Boneshaper - spell tbc 20 mortek guard - swords 10 mortek guard - swords 5 kavalos deathriders - spears 4 morghast harbingers - halberds Gothizzar harvester Catapault Soulstealer carrion spell 2000pts spot on
  11. That is my local store summed up as well... It pushed me away from 40k, as I'm a bit more casual/fluff minded for that... but in aos, we all appreciate the more competitive mindset. We're not tournament winners or anything, but my store does like to have a challenging game 🙂
  12. I have been keeping up with this thread as it seems bonkers.... So, just so I'm aware.... What events do you guys run/attend? If cheaters are this rife at them I'd like to know so I can avoid the events/gaming area wherever possible. I normally only attend events locally to me or at warhammer world but have never encountered cheating once in 16 years of going to events.... so I have to wonder what the state of the game is outside my experience if people are this scared of players deliberately cheating 🤔
  13. Looking good @toaae And you've gone for almost exactly the same scheme as me (I've used normal bone as my secondary colour 😉 )
  14. I'm just curious.... Have any of the people here complaining about bonereapers actually tried writing a competent list with them? Like, something that will win a gt more often than not. I'm curious, since this thread is about them being "hideously overpowered" if anyone has managed such nonsense yet? They are a tough army to shift, that is slow moving but hits crazy hard.... which sums up fyreslayers as well.. . And fyreslayers dont seem to be dominating the scene so maybe there's more to it? As others have mentioned, give the book a chance people... it's been a few da
