    I've said this before, but it remains true - I'm not playing allies cause I can't fit all the DoK units I want into 2000 points! I might try out a sorceress in future though, as a cheaper spell option, but, I get to roll for so many prayers in my command phase I might not need more magic. I'm looking forward to being able to command ability my witch aelves to run 6" and then charge.

    Well that's completely silly. Why announce that in the new edition we can use all our heroes command abilities, and then go and word the latest hero warscrolls so that we can't? That is a rather confusing thing for them to go and do.

    You could use the arm from the blood sister gorgai to turn a sorceress into ahHag queen, as it is holding a heart. And give the gorgai just a normal arm.

    Damn, Avatars of Khaine and Doomfire Warlocks are brutal. Played a 2k game against Seraphon last night. My opponent had Lord Kroak, a Trogg, a Razordon, a Skink Starpriest, 40 skinks, and a battalion of 3x10 Saurus Guard and a Sunblood, which gave all the Saurus Guard a 2+ save, plus they ignore -1 rend. They were really hard to deal with. I did eventually manage to take them all out with a combo of Doomfire mortal wounds, and Avatar on Foot, and my Cauldron of Blood, though I lost the Cauldron. We played Scorched Earth. I made an early error by leaving one of my objectives unguarded, allowing him to teleport the Razordon there and burn the objective for 3 points. I was serverly behind behind all the way up to my turn 3/turn 4 double turn, in which I managed to outmanuver him and burn all his objectives. Hagg Nar rerolling all hits is soooo good. It's ridiculous. I really wished I had taken Steed of Shadows over Mindrazor though. The -1 rend was mostly useless on my witch aelves, and it felt less than amazing on the Avatars. I think I need to be more strategic in what I take - Mindrazor is bad vs Seraphon, and not great vs undead, but is great against Ironjaws and Stormcast.

    Interesting idea to give the Bloodwrack Shrine Steed of Shadows, deals with the slow movement speed, lets it keep up with witch aelves that I've been holding back a lot on due to how much faster they are than other parts of the army. I'm now thinking of doing it myself - though then the Blood Cauldron will struggle to keep up.

    Remember your opponent can also use the spellportal to throw spells back at her.

    I was going back and forth between Bloodwrack Shrine or Slaughter Queen on Cauldron of Blood as general - but with the new edition, I thought, why not have both? Bloodwrack Shrine as general, with SQoCB for her command ability. I reckon two of them near each other in a Hagg Nar army will be hard to deal with. My current list (mostly due to the models I ended up buying) Allegiance: Daughters Of Khaine- Temple: Hagg NarLeadersBloodwrack Shrine (220)- General- Trait: Devoted Desciples - Artefact: Shadow Stone - Lore of Shadows: MindrazorSlaughter Queen on Cauldron Of Blood (330)- Prayer: Crimson RejuvenationHag Queen (60)- Prayer: Catechism of MurderHag Queen (60)- Prayer: Blessing of KhaineHag Queen (60)- Prayer: Sacrament of BloodBattleline5 x Blood Sisters (140)10 x Witch Aelves (100)- Sacrificial Knives and Blade Bucklers10 x Witch Aelves (100)- Sacrificial Knives and Blade BucklersUnits5 x Blood Stalkers (160) 5 x Khinerai Heartrenders (80)10 x Doomfire Warlocks (320)BehemothsAvatar of Khaine (180)Avatar of Khaine (180)Total: 1990 / 2000Allies: 0 / 400Wounds: 124 Future Plans: * Replace the Blood Stalkers with five more Blood Sisters. * Convert the Heartrenders into Lifetakers * Drop the second avatar (180pts) for a second unit of Lifetakers (80pts) + Cauldron Guard Battalion (100pts).

    How are your bases made? They look really cool.

    I haven't played Sisters of Slaughter, but I find that Witch Aelves in squads of 10 are good with shields, if you're playing them in a squad 20 or more, the double daggers are way better. Doomfire Warlocks are better in groups of 10 IMO, as losing one from a 5 man squad drops their spell to D3 damage. But I guess now that's still better than Arcane Bolt. At the moment I'd rather play more Blood Sisters or Doomfires over Blood Stalkers. The stalkers look good, but I found them rather lacklustre in my games. They're good for sitting on a back ovbjective and still hitting stuff at range, but if you're wanting to use Sisters for that, then I don't think they're worth taking.

    It's on the page that lists the six Prayers of the Khainite Cult.

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't specify that one of the two prayers they use in a turn has to be the battletome prayer. It just says that if they have an extra prayer, they can pray twice. (Though they can't pray twice for the battletome prayer.)

    How are Idoneth Disney? They are aelves with souls tainted by Slaanesh who hide in mist, rip out people's souls, and feed them to their children. They also blind their mounts and magically force them to obey, because animals can tell they're messed up and want nothing to do with them.

    So this happened. Puts a slight damper on armies which rely on Arcane Bolt and Mystic Shield a lot.

    I also killed a Stardrake! I thought it would destroy me, and to be fair, it did kill my Cauldron of Blood in a single turn. But combo of 5 Blood Sisters and an Avatar of Khaine took it out over two turns. He was so focused on trying to kill the Avatar that the little unit of 5 Blood Sisters got away with murder (teehee)! I am definitely getting more of them as my next purchase.

    I'm wondering how important it will be to have more than one command point per turn if you aren't playing Morathi. The Slaughter Queen's Command ability is powerful but very narrow, and is unlikely to be needed on your first turn, whilst Inspiring Presence is now a panic button you don't need to use every turn. Which means that you can parably make use of At the Double or Forward to Victory even without a battalion. So, just weighing up options here. Do I want to put in two units of Lifetakers (requiring me to reduce the size of my Blood Sisters or Warlock unit) to get that +1 command point and extra relic?
