  1. Oh yeah, I also play Nighthaunt for this reason but it still saddens me that we don't have a real "Big bad scary unit" which many armies bring to the table. What I mean by that is we are a bit restricted in being forced to outmanouvre the enemy since many units can go toe toe with our best units.
  2. To be honest, I can't agree completly. We have a lot of tactics at our disposal but only through the Dreadblade Harrow and teleporting units on the field. The issue I see is most of our abilities (like attacking if we charge 10" or more are random and usually we can only reduce enemy bravery by 1 and can only combine it with a few abilities). It's still a hard and tactical army for sure but I don't see it as the nighthaunt per se but more about how the game is played. With this I mean the issue is more about the top armies is they have 1 or 2 playstyles which puts them above the rest which means they don't really need to learn it ecc. (like Idoneth or FeC). I think Nighthaunt are a wasted potential because we are fairly limited (in my opinion) on what we can actually do. Most of the time we need to rely on lucky rolls more than anything
  3. I for one think it looks great 😁
  4. To be honest, a lot of Battletomes look overcosted if you confront the points to the more recent Battletomes (Nighthaunt, Idoneth, Nurgle with high prices and Fec and Slaven with low points. I get the feeling we will see point reductions across the board.
  5. it could look a bit orkish, but if you higlight it well I think it could look great
  6. Is the "Alliance of wood and sea" playable in non-competitive games? Or does it ouright suck?
  7. I also see Slaanesh being really strong against elite armies but I think putting a lot of bodies on the field could be hard to handle for a slaaneshi player
  8. It's a bit sad to see that Idoneth are such a stale faction (stale for a fairly new faction) that there is little to no discussion because there is essentially only 1 competitive lost. I really hope that the GH2019 mixes things up a bit, I also have a little hope that they get 1 or 2 more units in 2020 even though seeing fireslayers it's really doubtful
  9. I want to make a 2000pt Mortal Nurgle list. Currently I'm thinking about taking these units: HQ: Sorcerer Harbringer of Decay Lord of Blights Units: 10 Blightkings 5 Blightkings 5 Blightkings 1 Chaos Warshrine Blight Cyst battalion Currenty this reaches 1440 points, what could I add to reach 2000pt? Or is there something I should remove? I also wanted to ask if I need demons for the contagion points. Thank you
  10. Well, if it's true we will only see it in a couple of years sadly
  11. Since this is the rumour tread I didn't want to go too much in detail but give GW time to sort out AoS and you will see more xenos updates (what I meant with stale is that they can't insert new factions out of nowhere since the universe is well established they can only add sub-factions)
  12. The issue in my opinion is the fact that the 40k universe is stale (lore wise) and already has a huge range. (at least in my opinion) They are pushing AoS since it's new and it still needs fleshing put and more factions. When AoS starts to calm down (release-wise) because GW is happy with the diversity and range you will see a lot more 40k releases
  13. You need to keep in mind that they are forced to do this. What a lot of people seem to forget is the fact that the copyright law works this way. If they don't shut them down (I don't know the story in this case) but if they don't defend their IP they loose it and can't defend themself if another company just steals the sculps. Also keep in mind they leave user-created content and parodies up and don't force them to delete the videos ecc.
  14. There a few rumours that the points will drop across the board for the Nighthaunt. Which looking at the new point-cost for skaven and Fec start to be believable
  15. I was thinking of adding Arkhan the black in my Nighthaunt list, did you folks have any experience fielding him as an ally? Also a friend told me to field my Nighthaunt as LoN so I would have access to tombs and being able to heal/summon units from there, is this true? Can I field a pure Nighthaunt army using the alliance abilities of LoN?
  16. Hello everyone, I'm new here and I'm starting Idoneth (obviously ☺️). I wanted to field some allies and was asking myseelf which ranged ally would be best? The options I was thinking for the moment Kurnoth Hunters (I have 3) Celestal Balista What would you guys suggest?
