    @CoyoteUse maxed out Gore Pilgrims to extend the range of the bloodsecrator. Rerolling successfull casts will cause him to fail the odd spell, and any he does get through you have a chance to unbind. Brazen Rune to protect the Bloodsecrator and dont be shy about using it up for an auto unbind. Dont forget the auto unbind via 2 bloodtithe points as well. Scattered flesh hounds can help unbind provided he isnt getting bonuses to cast.

    The Khorne battletome has 6 additional prayers from which slaughterpriests can choose one to use in the battle, in addition to the two basic prayers they start with. These prayers are not spells and so are not affected by any rule of one and can stack (khorne players do expect this to be nerfed one day but nothing so far). As @kenshin620 said, there is a prayer called Killing Frenzy which on 4+ gives +1 to hit. A couple of those on the Bullgors and hey presto they hit on 2's!

    Remember the battleline requirement is 3 units and I have to include a unit each of blood warriors and reavers for gore pilgrims. I could drop a unit of reavers for some Gors who would be part of the Brass Despoilers and still count as battleline but Gors are just so meh... also at 80 points for 10 they throw my list out. Totally agree on the bullgors. However you can easily split the unit into 2 x 3 and still meet the criteria of the battalion so that is a call you can make once you know your opponent/the deployment scenario.

    Watched a Mountain miniatures battle report last night. Was pretty good, they kept things entertaining, got their rules right most of the time, coming back to fix up any errors, and gave good explanations throughout.

    @xking most of the above channels cover a range of battle reports from AOS & 40K, both matched play and narrative (or at least without matched play points being a factor) so you should be able to find something you like.

    The warscroll wording on the bloodsecrator is "do not take battleshock tests for friendly khorne units while they are within 18" of any models with this ability". Note that it doesn't say "you may not" or "don't have to"... etc. Previously yes you could still choose to take the test for bloodletters in the hopes of rolling a 1 however now I would agree with @Darksteve, that loophole has closed ?

    As @The_Yellow_Sign said, he charged the Ungors in first and pushed them hard up against the witches. Then he charged the enlightened in such that only one model was in range. The Ungors attack first, then the witches wipe out the ungor, which cleared the way for the whole enlightened unit to pile in and attack with their reroll buff activated.

    Cheers @Somanlius! I have seen some of Masterpiece Miniatures' reports though they seem to do a lot of hobby stuff and non- AOS stuff. Never heard of the other 3 so they all just picked up a new subscriber :-)
  10. I love a good battle report! Always pick up ideas and makes for great background when I'm painting. However I am consuming content faster than the channels can put out so looking for any suggestions for channels with AOS battle reports. My favourite channels are: Rerolling Ones Miniwargaming Doom & Darkness I've found a bunch of other channels but they mostly focus on Battletome reviews or deep dive into the Lore. So, what other channels do people like for battle reports?

    @SirPug I'm loving the Doom & Darkness battle reports! That tactic with the Enlightened behind the wall of Ungor is brilliant! They do seem a little cheap for 140 points although they only hit on 4+ and have a 5+ save. Without the rerolls I'm sure they would be less effective.

    Yeah Rage of Khorne is just the name of the ability. The Banner affects all models with the Khorne keyword.

    I like the idea of using Gors for batteline so only the supporting khorne heroes come from the Beasts of Chaos tome. However the thing with slaughterpriests is that their prayers only go off on a 4+. I always run Gore Pilgrims because it lets them reroll failed prayers making them so much more reliable. If you are only running a single priest I would tend to recommend not bothering and spending those 100 points on something else. I've also never bothered with a special banner for the bloodsecrator. He spends most games at the back of your army so pretty rare for anyone to be within 8" to benefit from the artifact.

    I've tooled around with Brass Despoilers in a Khorne list combined with Gore Pilgrims. The idea is for the slaughterpriests to reliably give +2 to hit to a Bullgor unit while the Doombull gives them +1 to wound and the Stoker whips them/Bloodsecrator buffs them. If the prayers are successful then the Great Axes have 3 attacks each (4 for the leader), hit on 2 (rerolls 1's from the battalion), wound on 2 (rerolls 1's from the Stoker), and thanks to the Stoker and his artifacts the unit has +5" to charge and a free charge reroll if within 8" of him. And then you've got the horns with all the buffs as well. Send the unit in, then repeat the dose on the second Bullgor unit the following turn. The Bestigor's role is to follow up as the 2nd/3rd wave while the big unit of reavers act as the screen. The small unit of reavers get sacrificed and the warriors camp on an objective and/or defend the priests and bloodsecrator. Due to the buffs its very tempting to run the Bullgors as a single unit of 6 and you could easily make a late switch based on your opponent/the terrain etc (by simply splitting the Bestigors into 2 units of 10 it doesn't mess with the battalion's minimum requirements). With two battalions I can choose 3 artifacts but I couldn't find another Khorne one worth taking so went with Gyrstrike on the Doombull which I think he will enjoy.

    Thats a good way of getting around it. I suppose I don't actually have to use a Tzeentch model or even acknowledge his Tzeentchian beliefs as long as he gets the cast off. Still not sure what to drop to fit him and cogs in though. I realise my list is trying to do a bit of everything (ambush/summon/mix bray & warherd, etc) without doing any of it particularly well. I see it as sort of a starter list to work out what style suits me best and then it might specialize from there.
