    You get 6 mortal wounds and a normal hit as per the recent FAQ:
  2. It's still good, especially if you're going 2nd in the battle round. You just have to roll slightly better to take out 5 wound characters now unfortunately
  3. Staff of Focus was FAQed to not work with Endless Spells

    Warcry is Killteam/Mordheim... ?

    For me it gives a Necromunda type deal. It's all set on an Imperial Hive world with rival gangs vying for supremacy. Why not a similar thing at the all points, rival Chaos Lord vying for Archaons favour? It's also worth noting that while they say it's "from the makers of Kill Team and Underworlds" they don't necessarily say it is anything like either of them

    YMMV I just don't think I've ever played a game where he would have been useful to me, between screens and effective board control by my opponents the only things I can ever charge with my deep strikes are "chaff" (I'm not sure 60 grots count as chaff given how much dmg they do...). @CareBear I don't really know what a better list would be, no one is doing much trying of anything other than Gav though what I'll be taking to Sheffield Slaughter and GW heat 1 will be this: In practise games with it I think I'm 7/1 though not all of my opponents list have necessarily been "tournament lists"

    Two reasons really. 1) Because he's a one trick pony that basically everyone knows how to counter at this point 2) Over reliance on him means that no one wants to consider any other kind of list that may in fact be better, in a sort of "why would I try something else when I know Gavriel works" kind of way @HammerOfSigmarin the list that was posted taking the LA would only get you 1 CP and Phalanx wasn't included so in the list in question they'd only have 1 from their turn and 1 extra if they went LA instead of LAoGC

    When running 10 evocators I usually run 5 with tempest blade & stormstave in the front and 5 with grandstaves in the back. I think math wise the grandstaves are fractionally better in most circumstances. The 2" range lets them attack from the back row but I do like to keep some rend around. Spell wise it doesn't really matter what you give them as in almost all circumstances they will be casting empower. Personally I hate Gavriel and I think relying on him hurts people far more often than he helps but if you do want to take him 1 CP from your turn is not enough, you need 2 at a minimum. Mount trait wise I like the +1" move, generally though you'll see a lot of the +1 die for Ride the Winds Aetheric. LA vs LAoGC. The LA is probably only better if you desperately need the points, his CA is frankly...garbage compared to the LAoGCs though his spell is interesting, it's also a shame to lose the massive movement potential of the LAoGC in an army that is otherwise pretty slow. Tactics wise, I'm no expert and I'm sure better skilled player will correct me, but it's a bit unsure of what it wants to be. If you're going Gavriel you want to be deep striking him and 10 evocators probably + 20 sequitors and deleting all your opponents important stuff near the back of their army. You probably also want to be deep striking the Azyros to get him into position for his buff and also the Ordinator + Ballista nest...which is a problem because that's more than 1/2 your army that wants to be deep striking. I'd probably go Ordinator + Ballista + Gavriel + Evocators in the sky. Rush the Azyros forward , drop the ballista nest to take out the screen, drop Gavriel and the Evocators and sure charge whatever "elite" unit was behind the screen. Sequitors can sit on objectives and generally refuse to die (20 Sequitors + Castellant lantern will take some shifting, especially with the LA/LAoGC nearby to give them a 6+ ignore wounds and MWs)

    Which scenario do you like best!?

    Blood and Glory for me, it's very much an all or nothing scenario. You either crush them utterly or you don't win.

    Sentiment about the new releases

    I'm always reminded of a comment made by a certain community manager for a certain popular MMORPG: You can't please everyone. Some people are always going to be disappointed for reasonable reasons, some are going to be disappointed for unreasonable reasons but those people you just ignore. The comments I've seen so far have been overwhelmingly positive and I for one am looking forward to starting a FEC army. @JackStreicher so what if it only took 3 hours? There's no point spending extra time on something if it already looks good after 3 hours. I think the chalice, horse and throne all look excellent (not so fussed about the fence). You may not like them, that's fine, but your definition of "Inferior" is trying to pass off opinion as fact

    It's per phase (as you say at the beginning) not per turn (as you say at the end) so in fact you could get more than one back per turn if you lost them in different phases

    You're right that it can't be cast more than once a turn but the Incantor isn't short of other spells to cast, his built in one, the Comet, Arcane Bolt, Mystic Shield. Plus it gives you redundancy in case the one with Halo gets killed

    If it's in base to base contact with 2 models and it moves 0" it's still in base to base contact with both those models, so it's a legal pile in. I don't think there's a contradiction there.

    He can make a pile in move of 0" From the Core Rules FAQ:

    The Sequitor kit is a bit of a mess full stop, between that and not having enough Greatmaces. I do get the ETB things though, they aren't really aimed at matched play players. They're a nice, easy, "cheap" option to get younger players involved. @stato oddly enough, I do prefer the mono-pose one piece models for my "rank and file" partially because I like them to look "rank and file" and partially because they're much more familiar to me. I know I'm very much in the minority there though and fair enough, it wouldn't do for us all to like the same things
