  1. My gaming group is starting a campaign for warcry and my friend is interested in playing a free-guild warband. I've tried to make some home-brewed stat cards but was curious if these would be fairly balanced. The Campaign is very casual and we aren't looking to be super competitive. I'm mostly interested in feedback regarding the cards to make sure my buddy doesn't get stomped out or dominate the rest of us. Also if anyone has fun suggestions for abilities id love to hear them as well. I know in AOS freeguild rely on buffs from their hero units and I think doing something similar could be an interesting playstyle for this warband. Warcry free guild guard.psd
  2. Hello, I wish I could be more help, but I do not play slaanesh and am relatively new to aos. I do however run a khorne army with mixed slaves to darkness, and have purchased the slaves to darkness “godsworn warband” box set. While I do not regret the purchase (there are tons of great models) I find that I only really use three units from the box. Slaves are a great army, they are just in a rough spot at the moment and just lack any punch to compete with most other armies. They will be receiving a battletome sometime in the foreseeable future, so if you are willing to wait for that, it could be a good purchase. Currently you are better off running them as part of a slaanesh warband. Some units to consider: The chaos warshrine is undoubtedly one of the best models in the box. Its invulnerable bubble has been a huge asset in most games i've taken it. The chaos knights are a good cavalry unit, I especially get use out of them as khorne is a relatively slower army. They may not be as good for slaanesh as you have access to better faster units. They are most useful for capturing objectives and guarding them ive found. Their damage output on the other hand is lacking, this is a common theme for much of the slaves to darkness army. Lastly are chaos warriors, these guys are slower chaos knights essentially. A good sturdy unit with 2 wounds a piece and a +4 save, plus a MW save. Add in the warshrines buff and you have a unit with decent staying power. These guys can be good for objective capturing, as well as screening your opponent. They can make a good battle line choice, as some slaanesh options tend to be squishy. Unfortunately the other units I find will underperform especially for the points cost. For slaanesh, you might be better off purchasing a box of warriors and a warshrine separately as this will be cheaper in the short term. Something to consider is the warshrine alone cost roughly $60, while you can find the godsworn warband for about $140 from most third party retailers. The warshrine alone is a little under half the box value, if you are like me and love the look of the entire model range, the godsworn warband will be the cheapest option for all of the units you get. STD is good at filling in certain weaknesses in your army, for me I get access to buffs and faster units. You should carefully consider you list and see what it is lacking. If your lucky STD will have a unit that can cover the gaps in your list. All of this is based on personal experience, I am in no way an expert, but this is what I wish I knew before I bought the godsworn warband box. I wish I could help you with your other questions, but hopefully this answers one of them.
  3. I cannot thank you enough Agent of Chaos for this amazing response. There's a lot more to consider than I had previously thought. I've looked into the demon side of the army more and am now heavily considering purchasing some units later down the line. For now ill purchase a box of blood warriors and wrathmonger/skullreapers Ive put together a khorne list that looks like a fun time. I would love to know what you think. Allegiance: Khorne Leaders Bloodsecrator (120) - Artefact: Thronebreaker's Torc - Banner of Khorne (Artefact): Banner of Wrath Bloodstoker (80) Mighty Lord of Khorne (140) - General - Trait: Hew the Foe Slaughterpriest (100) - Blood Blessing: Blood Sacrifice Slaughterpriest (100) - Blood Blessing: Bronzed Flesh Battleline 10 x Blood Warriors (200) - Goreaxe & Gorefist 5 x Blood Warriors (100) - Goreaxe & Gorefist 10 x Bloodreavers (70) - Meatripper Axes 10 x Bloodreavers (70) - Reaver Blades Units 1 x Chaos Warshrine (160) - Blood Blessing: Resanguination 5 x Wrathmongers (140) 5 x Chaos Knights (160) - Chaos Glaives 5 x Chaos Knights (160) - Chaos Glaives 5 x Skullreapers (180) - Goreslick Blades Battalions Gore Pilgrims (140) Endless Spells / Terrain Hexgorger Skulls (40) Total: 1960 / 2000 Extra Command Points: 1 Wounds: 150 Gore pilgrims will boost my secrators banner by 8” which will help me keep him away from combate. Ive also given him the artifact: thronebreakers torc, allowing him to ignore enemy rend. This coupled with the wrath banner (on a 4+ melee enemies take d3 MW) will make him even more survivable. I read about a strategy involving a slaughter priest casting blood sacrifice on a warshrine for a blood tith point. The warshrine can then cast resanguination (heal d3 wounds) to try and heal some of those wounds back. If both are near my skull alter they can reroll failed castings. Im not sure Ive included multiple small units of warriors and reavers to act as roadblocks and sources of blood tithe points. I havent decided which unit I want to pair my wrath mongers with. Blood warriors will probably see more milage especially with the ability to attack after dying. On the other hand skull reapers are very potent by themselves and when paired with mongers could be devastating. I'm just worried that this will make them a huge target for my opponent. Chaos knights will be useful for grabbing objectives and field control. Between the three priests, the skull altar and the hexgorger skulls, there is also a strong anti magic presence to this army ( as all khorne armies should be). I will admit its a bit of a soup list with no strong direction, but i feel that there is enough here for a solid foundation. Later on Im planning on splitting the wrath and rapture box set with a friend so i can claim the khorne half. Once ive done this i can focus on gaining blood tithe points so I can summon demons for support. I'd love any and all feedback on this list, and I also hope it was helpful to anyone looking for ideas for their own lists.
  4. the tournament i went to was 1000pts. but now that its over im looking to increase my army into a 2000pts warband. And would value any input as to what i should purchase next. What i own so far: The contents of the godsworn warband: 16x chaos warriors 10x chaos knights 1x chaos lord on manticore 1x chaos warshrine 1x chaos chariot (built as a gore beast) In addition i own the khorne blood bound starter set 1x mighty lord of khorne 1x blood secretor 1x blood stoker 1x khorgorath 20x blood reavers 5x blood warriors After the tournament I went ahead and purchased the skull altar, the khorne judgments and an additional slaughter priest ( 2 all together) I feel like as far as mortal heroes go i've got a good selection both slaughter priests seem like auto picks as well as the blood secretor and stoker. I've heard a lot of discussion regarding the aspiring death bringer and the juggernaut lord being great picks as well, Any thoughts? I'd like to buff my battle line. While blood reavers can be good chaff and even mini blenders if buffed correctly, i find the blood warriors to be very reliable and overall a better choice, i only have five and am considering buying an additional box. Skullcrushers sounds good, but how do they compare to chaos knights? Is one a better pick over the other? Are bloodletters worth getting just to have some units to summon? And finally, I'd like to get a box of wrathmongers, their buff and two inch range makes for a great unit to buff blood warriors while still getting attacks in. Are they a better choice over skull reapers? If there are any addition units I should purchase Id love to know why and which ones? Thank you so much for any and all help
  5. hello TGA Community, Im a first time poster and relatively new to the hobby. While I enjoy building and painting Im trying to get into the game aspect more (only played 5 games). A friend of mine has invited me to a local tournament and while Im very excited to participate, I feel very inexperienced. I was hoping to get some advice on a possible list I can bring, and general tips for tournament play. I own the "Godsworn warband" box and the Khorne half to the original starter set as well as a slaughter priest. Im not entirely sure if i should run BoK with StD allies or vice versa, or run them as Grand Alliance Chaos. StD seem to have a variety of troop choices, with access to tanky battle line and cavalry. Khorne gets access to blood tith points, and while I dont have demons to summon , the other effects are appealing. from what little i know, it seems like the bloodsecrator and warshrine are auto picks, but im not entirely sure what else i should bring. any and all suggestions are welcomed and extremely appreciated.
