    Best anti-buff or anti-ability factions?

    Slaanesh also has a lot of units that can debuff hit and wound rolls, and their summoning requirements motivates you to pick fights with heroes and central units anyways. Only drawback is lackluster allegiance abilities and no dedicated spell lore yet, but all in due time...

    AoS 2 - Hosts of Slaanesh Discussion

    Been seeing some discussion on the daemon engine teases, looks to me like it's all for 40k models if not one large model. We've seen armour, a heavily modified marine power pack, a chain weapon, crab claw and bolter. I wouldn't be surprised if this is for a new slaanesh daemon prince or slaanesh themed lord of chaos or some new hero variant for 40k, probably as either part of the next black legion push or the hopeful release of emperors children as a stand alone codex. On the bright side (for folks that don't play 40k anyways, for people like me who play emps children it's just icing) new slaanesh stuff for 40k means possible new daemons/sculpts that can be used in AoS and lots of new slaanesh bits for conversion projects.

    AoS 2 - Grand Host of Nagash Discussion

    Update on the tournament I went to: Pulled 2 wins and 1 loss, all really close games. First match was against another grandhost player, we couldn't push each other off of the objectives so it came down to kill points, I came out on top due to killing his morghasts, terrorgheist and VLoZD. Second match was against DoK, lost by 1 victory point in a down to the wire match where my opponent pulled a win by pushing through my grimghasts and dire wolves with a massive stack of snake ladies. Morathi tore through my skeletons for 2 turns but fell in turn 3 to arkhan and the mortis engine. Last match was against SCE, Pulled a 2 point win by maintaining objective control using my better numbers. The match came close near the end however due to a ballista/castigator battalion tearing up my fodder. All in all, the battalion worked great even if I didn't do too many wounds with spells, the debuffs got there money's worth however. The corpse cart did wonders for nearby dire wolves and kept my wizards going. Every match my VLoZD lived way longer than he should have and managed to tie up and weaken a lot of big units in each game. My biggest issue was probably having too many heroes on one board side, leaving nothing but my VloZD to anchor my galives and wolves on my other flank, bit of a drawback inherent in my battalion choice but still a fun time.

    Competitive Event Game Concessions

    I've never been in a game where a player conceded, but I have been in games where say, my 40 block of skeletons was making 70+ attacks into a unit of wych aelves and my opponent decided to save us time by removing his unit. The only real toxic thing I've experienced is when a game takes to long and the players argue over how to settle round 3 by assuming averages.

    I never bothered buying the endless spells box because I'd only ever use maybe 3 of them. I've fooled around with similar lists before, usually ends up with the dire wolves holding side objectives, skellies swamping middle objectives. My opponent unable to decide which hero to focus there range on and me taking ten years to do my hero phases because of all my spells. Also forgot to include the corpse cart for the extra +1 to casting, but if a wight king would be a better pick then I might go with that.

    @Malakithe @Honk I need you guys to weigh in then, should I drop the glaivewraiths for a wight king to be a tankier general? I'm hesitant to make the VLoZD my general because I want him to have some freedom of movement and not have to worry about him being near anything, the necros are already going to be hanging around my skellies so i figured might as well slap nagashizzar on one.

    Armies without Summons?

    It's however many you can fit into the space, any remaining models are basically considered to be spawn killed.

    Stacking Shield of thorns

    You can't cast the same spell more than once per hero phase, the only exception that I know of is LoN has a rule that if you roll a natural 9+ with certain spells the spell resolves twice.

    I'm just praying not to be paired against the tzeench player that's going, It'd be a shame for all my magic to backfire 😅

    Playing against tzeench and seraphon lately i wish we could just add another 40 skellies 😅 Tzeench really makes me regret playing so much sacrament...

    Armies without Summons?

    I can see the argument here as a LoN player. I usually only get to revive half a unit anyways due to clever enemy positioning but I mean hey 20 skeletons can still do something.

    Up through the clouds the ironclad soars!

    Yeah my bits box is starting to fill as well, shame none of my armies have any shared designs, but at least all the spare skulls from LoN can go with any army. A friend of mine started an SCE army because she fell in love with one of the stormhosts colour scheme and wanted to do a dark angel themed army with the vanguard chamber stuff. Fortunately for her, her bf was interested in playing SCE as well until deepkin stole his heart (and soul)
