  1. If you want to know how Khorne should play according to their Lore, look no further than Iron Jaws or Daughters. Iron Jaws are in your face first first turn with multiple units, loads of attacks, high damage, fighting before you if they destroy a unit. Its fun, its fluffy, its not OP and very far from chess. Would be ideal if Khorne played the same way, except with no wizards and some anti-magic shenanigans.
  2. Can't see blood tithe going away. The only changes I would make is that unspent tithe is banked instead of wasted and the cap of 8 is removed. Even if GW removed the system entirely, they would have to replace it with something else or we would effectively not have any allegiance ability at all. I would love to see us gain another allegiance ability that aligns with the lore. Something like "khorne units fight at the start of the combat phase if they charged". Would support a get into melee fast style of play and give our glass cannon units a chance to swing before they die and earn blood tithe, without being too OP.
  3. @W1tchhunter dont know if my list is semi competitive yet as Australia is in lockdown right now but my Tzeentch Idolators list should be super resilient with really good armour and rerolling 1's to save everywhere. Between the 2 sorcerers, mystic shield, all out defence and the 2 Tzeentch prayers there are 6 sources of +1 save. It also has great resistance to mortal wounds and spells while its damage output will come from spells and the chaos knights. At only 4 drops I should have choice of turn order more often than not. I dont see it winning any tournaments but it should play the objectives quite well and therefore I believe its at least semi competitive. Slaves to Darkness - Idolators Grand Strategy: Hold the Line 4 Drops Command Entourage Notes Role Points Sorcerer Lord on Manticore Mark of Tzeentch, Spell: Binding Damnation Leader 270 Sorcerer Lord Mark of Tzeentch Artefact: Arcane Tome Spell: Mask of Darkness Leader 115 Idolator Lord on Chariot General, Mark of Tzeentch, Great Weapon Trait: Fiery Orator, Aftefact: Amulet of Destiny, Prayer: Guidance Leader 105 Battle Regiment Notes Role Points Warshrine Mark of Tzeentch, Curse Leader, Behemoth 185 Chaos Lord on Daemonic Mount Mark of Tzeentch Leader 155 Chaos Lord Mark of Tzeentch, Flail Leader 120 5 x Chaos Knights Mark of Tzeentch, Ensorcelled Weapons Battleline 170 5 x Chaos Knights Mark of Tzeentch, Glaives Battleline 170 20 x Chaos Warriors Mark of Tzeentch, Halberds & Shields Battleline 400 8 x Iron Golems Mark of Tzeentch Battleline 75 Khagra's Ravagers Mark of Undivided, Spell: Whispers of Chaos 125 Endless Spells Points Chronomatic Cogs 45 Soulsnare Shackles 65 TOTAL = 2000
  4. @Salyx that wont work. Flaming Weapon only effects the caster's weapon so you cant have another wizard cast it on archaon and he cant cast it on himself due to being unique. He can only cast bolt and shield (and in a slaves can have a spell from their lore).
  5. No you dont get one artefact per battalion. Those are old rules. Only Command Entourage and Warlord battalions grant an extra enhancement. Vanguard grants a once per battle reroll charge or auto run 6 for the units in the battalion.
  6. @Praecautus close games a good game! Good to hear the a Berzerker Lord Bloodsecrator in the altar is hard to kill as Im leaning that way too. Did he survive the battle? Looking over your list and I was wondering if you had an extra artifact? Banner of Wraith, Gorecleaver and Mark of the Slayer is 3 but your battalions (Command Entourage and 2 x Vanguard) only allowed for 2. Am I missing something?
  7. Slight variation on a generic Khorne list I posted a while back, mixing daemons, mortals and beasts. It was 9 drops with a battle regiment which I realised was pretty pointless so reworked it into double warlord and hunters of the heartland. Its now 15 drops but the extra artifact I gained (Brazen Rune) means my general is even harder to kill. KHORNE Grand Strategy: Vendetta 15 Drops Warlord Notes Role Points Doombull Leader 115 Bloodsecrator General, Trait: Berzerker Lord Artifact: The Brazen Rune Leader 125 Bloodstoker Artifact: Talisman of Burning Blood Leader 85 3 x Bullgors Great Axes 155 3 x Bullgors Great Axes 155 Warlord Notes Role Points Daemon Prince Artifact: Mark of the Slayer Leader 210 Slaughterpriest Prayer: Killing Frenzy Leader 110 Aspiring Deathbringer Leader 85 10 x Bloodreavers Battleline 80 5 x Flesh Hounds Battleline 105 Hunters of the Heartlands Notes Role Points 5 x Wrathmongers 155 5 x Skullreapers 205 5 x Skullreapers 205 5 x Flesh Hounds Battleline 105 5 x Flesh Hounds Battleline 105 TOTAL = 2000
  8. @readercolin thats a pretty nice list for a norsca theme and Ravagers is a good call. Karkadrak and manticores can do work. I would suggest trying to fit in a warshrine for the undivided prayer on the marauders before teleporting them in, then use all out attack or, if in range, the chaos lord for double tap.
  9. You can move an endless spell a 3rd time in the hero phase with the Cabalist ritual.
  10. Meanwhile this is what I've got for Reapers; Khorne - The Reapers of Vengeance Grand Strategy: Beast Master 6 Drops Warlord Notes Role Points Bloodthirster of Insensate Rage Artifact: Argath King of Blades Leader 280 Bloodthirster of Unfettered Fury Leader 295 Bloodsecrator Leader 125 Slaughterpriest Prayer: Killing Frenzy Leader 110 5 x Wrathmongers 155 Battle Regiment Notes Role Points Wraith of Khorne Bloodthirster General, Trait: Mage Eater Artifact: Skullshard Mantle Leader 310 5 x Flesh Hounds Battleline 105 5 x Flesh Hounds Battleline 105 5 x Flesh Hounds Battleline 105 5 x Skullreapers 205 5 x Skullreapers 205 TOTAL = 2000 A much more reasonable 6 drops but probably ambitious with Beast Master as the Grand Strat. It relies on the thirsters to wreck face with ample support from the Skullreapers.
  11. KHORNE (Generic) Grand Strategy: Sever the Head 9 Drops Vanguard Notes Role Points Doombull Leader 115 3 x Bullgors Great Axes 155 3 x Bullgors Great Axes 155 Warlord Notes Role Points Daemon Prince Artifact: Mark of the Slayer Leader 210 Slaughterpriest Prayer: Killing Frenzy Leader 110 Aspiring Deathbringer Leader 85 10 x Bloodreavers Battleline 80 5 x Wrathmongers 155 Battle Regiment Notes Role Points Bloodsecrator General, Trait: Berzerker Lord Leader 125 Bloodstoker Artifact: Talisman of Burning Blood Leader 85 5 x Flesh Hounds Battleline 105 5 x Flesh Hounds Battleline 105 5 x Flesh Hounds Battleline 105 5 x Skullreapers 205 5 x Skullreapers 205 TOTAL = 2000 Its a crazy 9 drops but its all about buffing those bullgors with reroll 1's to hit (from Mark of the Slayer), +1 to hit and wound and extra attacks with flesh hounds to screen them. Meanwhile the skullreapers, bloodstoker & Deathbringer go off and do their thing. The Bloodsecrator should be fairly tanky, especially if he gets in cover and/or uses all out defense.
  12. I'm struggling with any type of Khorne list at the moment. One major issue is that we are used to making our General into a beatstick murder machine however AOS3 rewards you more for taking a tanky/defensive general. If you lose your general you lose a CP per turn so if he goes down during a Round 1 alpha strike thats 8CP for the battle you are losing. In addition you might have handed your opponent a battle tactic and/or their grand strategy, plus an extra VP if its a monster i.e. bloodthirster I'm also mindful of which grand strategy to choose. Our battleline is all weak and meant to die so Hold the Line is out. Aside from Archaon none of our monsters or heroes (including priests) are tanky and we have no wizards so Beast Master, Pillars of Belief, Prized Sorcery and Vendetta are out. Sever the Head and Dominating Presence are extremely situational; you could come up against tanky heroes/units or just a mass of units and never be able to achieve these. That just leaves Predator's Domain, where a late game summoning might help us claim the extra terrain feature needed to achieve this Strat but my god (Khorne) its lame! 😞 I dont play Khorne to control scenery so I think Sever the Head feels best and I will just have to accept there will be games where its not possible to do. Choosing a slaughterhost is also really tricky now. I want to run daemons, mortals and BoC together but the host rules will only effect 1 out of 3 of those factions. I want to run a tanky general but all the command traits promote an aggressive general. Thronebreakers Torc is nice but then you cant benefit from cover/all out defense. I think Reapers still has play, especially with the new restriction on Inspiring Presence. I also think Generic Khorne might be an option too. Below are a couple of lists I've cooked up...
  13. Skull Altar rules specifically state you can reroll judgement rolls so that should be sweet. Im very surprised and confused to see that DOK invocations are not prayers as everything you read says Invocations are summoned with a "prayer" roll. I note there was no such clarification for Khorne invocations so its still unclear to me.
  14. Nothing has changed however he is running him in Legion of the First Prince allegiance as opposed to Khorne.
