  1. i agree that not enough information is being collected or considered with regards to these sorts of stats. the one that really drives me up the wall is Grand Host Of Nagash, Legion Of Sacrament, Legion Of Night and Legion Of Blood all being recorded just as Legion Of Nagash which is skewing the stats for that book i also think the sub factions are very important to consider in this regard too
  2. im not sure why you would think that is great. everyone needs to put their bias aside in regards to armies having a 2nd tome whiles others dont even have 1. a lot of these updated tomes really needed new models/units added to them. Fyreslayers, Flesh-Eater Courts, Sylvaneth, Kharadron Overlords, Ironjawz all suffer from not having enough variety. these spells+terrain releases arent a good thing if they prevent the tomes who really need new stuff from getting it
  3. unfortunately, and as sad as it is for those armies, i think at this point its safe to assume that any army with an existing battletome that gets updated (Seraphon, Kharadron, Tzeentch, Ironjawz etc) will only get the Endless Spells + Terrain (maybe a Hero model) release. i expect there are 2 exceptions to this however. -Slaves to Darkness/Everchosen will get new models (Darkoath), how they are released however is anyones guess. for all we know theyll release darkoath via warcry and then end up as a spells + terrain only release -Soulblight/Deathrattle. if either of these are the upcoming Death battletome, then itll be a Gloomspite/Slaanesh type release, as neither one can function properly as a standalone faction with what they currently have
  4. in their turn only. its important to note that as otherwise people get the wrong idea about what it does. Deepkin. Eels + Volturnos stacking command ability is a big problem and is the reason we even have these first first abilities now
  5. anyone have the warscroll cards and able to send me a picture of all the tokens? need those for the tournament but you cant buy them anymore so ill have to print them off if someone can send me the image
  6. and its sold out on the nz store too, damnit! ive at least got the squig half of one box waiting for me. but damn i wanted a second box as the discount on the squigs is good plus i wanted the sylvaneth to finally start an army of trees
  7. as long as the rules have completely changed and the wyldwoods no longer block line of sight like normal trees do (assuming you can still summon them) then im ok with people using the old ones (within reason), but if they still get the rules for normal trees plus whatever extra then no i probably wont allow the old ones as they appear to have a larger footprint than the new ones (and certain people within the community will try to game the system of '1-3 wyldwoods' as clearly the new trees represent a single tree as each 'wyldwood' rather than the current base with 3 trees as a 'wyldwood' some people will try to play it the old way and i cant be bothered dealing with that sort of cheating) this is all speculation of course as we dont know how the new ones will function
  8. Ghoul Patrol to me is exspensive because they kept it at the same points but took away its other rule (which was the only reason i used to run it pre 2.0 battletome). the extra artefact etc was still a factor back then as the points were determined in ghb18 with 2.0s release. additionally, i dont really think board edge 'deepstrike' for 3 units of ghouls, which has to be done in turn 1, is all that useful. im not saying its useless but rather its very circumstancal to want to do it, same with Death From The Skies mount trait, a Ghoul King on Zombie Dragon whos unable to cast spells when he turns up im not sure is worth doing. if you arent going first, those ghouls arent going to be very useful and are pretty much out of the game as your oppenent will block you from being able to bring them on anywhere but your own board edge so you lose a whole turn of movement vs just starting them on the board to begin with. Deadwatch is really the only battalion i see worth using for its actual rules (i dont have enough Horrors to run their battalion so probably havent looked into it properly). i miss the old Royal Family that was insanely hilarious
  9. my local gw store only recieved 2 copies, although its still available on the nz website, im doubtful ill be able to get the 2 boxes i wanted (ive arranged to split a box with someone, so ill at least have the squigs from that) Sylvaneth is one of those armies i keep looking at but never pulled the trigger. as for Gloomspite Gitz, i already have a Spiderfang army and squigs was the next area i wanted to explore with them. this box grabbed my attention because would have been useful to both those ideas, unfortunately it also delays my plans to complete my Flesh-Eaters whic i was hoping to do before i started any other projects, and even then Fyreslayers was supposed to be next in the que
  10. i prefer Blisterkin but i dont yet have the models to really benefit (3x3 Flayers isnt quite good enough) im limited by the models i currently have, this is for a tournament in a few weeks however lists are due in a few days and i cant guarentee id have more stuff in time. i have 1 Terrorgheight, 1 Zombie Dragon, 2 Ghoul Kings, 1 Archregent, 2 Ghast Courier, 2 Infernal Courier, 1 Haunter Courier, 50 Ghouls, 3 Horrors, 9 Flayers, Flesh-Eater Spells and Throne. i dont currently have Malign Sorcery so i cant use anything from it ghoul units are 20,20,10 as thats all i have and the Challace seems more useful if ghouls are around. im trying to keep drops low and start with a few cp i doubt ill use Death From The Skies to be honest, but i couldnt think what else to give him, Archregent has Dermal Robe as i tend to use him for summoning the endless spells so +1 is helpful Ghoul Patrol i dont like, i think its overcosted after losing its old rules but staying the same points, its only in this list as i needed a battalion to lower my drops and for cp

  13. how the hell do Flesh-Eater Courts have 20 Top 3 placings already?
  14. Tomb Kings and Bretonians didnt sell well, you can blame the player base for not buying them as the main reason theyre gone. the cries for them to come back are only a very vocal minority. some might try to blame gw for not 'supporting' the armies enough, but you dont pour money, time and resourses into something that isnt selling Egyptian skeletons and King Arther era knights cannot be protected by copyright, for starters theyre too generic in visual appearance and use subjects that cant be owned by anyone. after the whole Chapter House thing a few years ago, gw has tried to do everything they can to stop people profiting off their ip and designs. ive seen people try to argue that nothing in aos is protectable as everything is 'generic' or inspired by something else, however the way the law works differs with your opinion. Ironjawz and Bonesplittaz as orcs are very unique visually for example. 'orcs' may be generic but these 2 are not Bretonians are also covered by 2 different aos factions now anyway, so they are never coming back. Flesh-Eater Courts lore heavily hints at them being Bretonians, and Stormcast Eternals basically fill the knights in shining armour role but turned up to 11 with bird creatures and reptilian cats instead of horses
  15. yes it seems they are made in china along with the terrain
