    AoS 2 - Stormcast Eternals Discussion

    Yes, there are only 4 in the box, but 1 can easily be put on a prime. For the 5th you have 3 options, but a Soul Wars box and wind up with a ton of extra unusable models, convert one yourself, or buy the small 3 man snapfit box.

    Battletomes, a bygone era?

    I would prefer if books were still and option, if for nothing else than fluff and art resource. But everything should be available on cards. Warscrolls, battalions, spells, artifacts, allegiance abilities, etc. They can all be offered in card pack, have free printer friendly versions online, and have a print on demand service. The latter two are extra helpful for when errata takes place. They should also have a section on their website listing all warscrolls (and everything else) that have seen erratas, with dates for when each errata took place, with pdf groupings by faction.

    All you have to do is put greatmace arms and a prime shoulder pad on the same model. No conversions necessary.

    AoS 2 - Disciples of Tzeentch Discussion

    Too bad half my Tzaangors have shields. I would have to buy, build, and paint a whole other box to replace the extras. That or start chopping.

    GS is still viable as well as he is a Daemon too.
  6. Abysmal internal balance. Not just for units, but also command traits and even allegiance abilities. Too many units that fill the exact same roles, so 1 ends up simple being the best. Stormhosts are just poorly designed in general. Too many units in the book are flawed from a design standpoint, or overpointed for the current way the game works.

    Chainrasps or Skeleton warriors?

    I much prefer spears on 40 man units. Getting an easy extra 30 attacks (or up to an extra 120 attacks depending on how many buffs you are packing really matters.

    Black coach experiences?

    The one in the box is a misprint. The warscroll cards, book, and website all match, so that is the correct version. The Legions Coach is quite a bit cheaper (120 vs 280), and is not a behemoth.

    Starting BOC (new to chaos)

    Nobody has really played with the new rules yet, so most people are probably not 100% sure. Bestigors and Chimeras seem pretty solid at first glance though. You probably can't go wrong with a Start Collecting box or two as a base. Get some additional monsters and minotaurs to fill out. Of course you will want to get a herd stone as well.

    AoS 2 - Beasts of Chaos Discussion

    Ya, I really don't get it. At least they get access to extra rending, attacks, and ambush in BoC. And they are still more than twice as durable as Bestigors. Maybe GW thought they would be too good with their native rules, plus all the new stuff. Leaves them in an awful place for DoT though.

    I want to play a vampire army but I don’t know how.

    Despite what the main rrulebook says on that matter, GW seems intent to differentiate between them from book to book. Plus page 6 of the FAQ states: "Q: If an ability says it negates a wound, will it also negate a mortal wound? A: No, unless the ability specifically says it negates mortal wounds. By the same token, an ability that negates only mortal wounds will not negate wounds."

    AoS 2 - Blades of Khorne Discussion

    Unfortunately, they are not (though it is a common and easy mistake to make). Take for example Ironjawz who can take grots as allies, but not the opposite. I don't know if there is a reverse chart for FW factions somewhere (as far as who can take them as allies), but that is what would be needed. Because GW is not going to list FW units or allegiances in any fashion within the GHB ally charts (which does complicate things).

    He has been erratad to be able to pass both normal and mortal wounds once more.

    AoS 2 - Disciples of Tzeentch Discussion

    Not everything is "wholly within". Even the new Herdstone for beastmen prejects 2 auras, 1 wholly, and 1 simply within. Seems hit or miss with which abilities they decide on honestly. Rumor is Skyfires are going down to 200. We also know Enlightened on foot are getting a separate points value, which might possibly make them a decent option.

    AoS 2 - Blades of Khorne Discussion

    Unfortunately, unless there is an FAQ somewhere that allows it, you would not be able to take those units as allies in a Khorne army as they lack any of the relevant keywords Khorne can take. You can make a LoA army with Khorne allies, but that would be wildly different, and probably far off the mark of what you wanted to do.
