  1. It’s Anthony / AoS Coach 😁 I’m not busting your chops on the data mate. If somebody wants to make a claim that playtesters gain a significant advantage, I believe it’s up to them to prove it via data, not you lads defending yourselves with data. I’m sure there are some examples where a unit gained a significant benefit that wasn’t already strong in the meta. Witch Aelves is the first that comes to mind. Did a play tester get the DoK jump by having 90-120 ready upon release? I doubt a Dark Elf player ever had that many. As an example. The big consideration is if the play tester even got to use their “advantage”. You might have playtested Tzeentch but did that play tester play with Tzeentch or even face them at a tournament post-release? Like I mentioned earlier, I’m not too bothered because playtesters don’t play at events where I live. It doesn’t impact me but I can see how people locally might perceive advantage and be frustrated. How do you solve it, ban playtesters from events? That’s a poor outcome that I don’t think many want to see. Do event organisers enforce different rules for you? Again, I don’t think that’s fair either.
  2. Interesting topic raised @Jack Armstrong. First, i’d love to define “advantage”. At its core, prior knowledge before the market is an advantage, no matter the tournament outcome. There could be an argument that you could have done worse without that knowledge. I imagine your problem statement is more focused on if being a play tester improves your chances of winning a tournament because of prior experience with battletomes before public release. The challenge is that to be a play tester you must have proven yourself to be successful competitive prior to joining as a play tester. I’m not sure if there has been a play tester who joined the team without winning an event or consistent high performer to see such a spike in from play testers “advantage”. I’d say more data is required, especially looking at performances at tournaments within the first few months of a play tested battle tome is released. Through the play tester experience was it quicker to find the optimum build, to gain the tactical knowledge to pilot, to have the models built and ready for an event after release. BTW I actually don’t care. I thank you all for your hard work and dedication to putting out the best product with your limited influence.
  3. Just recorded a discussion with Dayne Thompson who came 16 of 219 at CanCon 2020 with Daughters of Khaine... and not even Hagg Nar. Hope DoK players find it valuable;
  4. Recently we recorded Faction Focus Seraphon which some of you my find valuable. It's a 2.5hr discussion with 2 great Seraphon players sharing their experience on list building, customisation and advice;
  5. Some of you may find Faction Focus: Cities of Sigmar valuable. The video is 4 hours long and I've time stamped the best I could in the episode description. Between a human, aelf & duardin player... we attempt to deconstruct the book as best as possible, and to be honest; we could have done another 2+ hours.
  6. Join Clint Mallet (🐦 @heraldsofwar), Deke Johnstone (📷 @abyssalgoblin )& I (🐦 @AnthonyMagro) as we unpack the Legion of Nagash in Warhammer Age of Sigmar. In this video, we explore the factions strengths, weaknesses, list builds, tactics, and recommendations. These generals are highly experienced in this allegiance and will help both new and experienced players.
  7. Agreed! Definitely work checking this podcast out... it's rock solid
  8. Congrats mate! I saw you streaming with CanKrohn recently too... solid insights
  9. Just about to hit 2,000 subscribers & recently launched Patreon... so I wanted to say thank you to everyone who's watched one of my videos, shared them with a friend, or commented.
  10. We'll treat the Legions as sub-faction (Chambers, Temples, Sky Ports) which is essentially what they are
  11. I think the threats are different, so it depends on your style. I like to set up a massive kick in the groin to my opponent, with my attacking units all charging in at one turn. I remember in one round of combat I was able to kill 140 clan rats. The Terrorgheist can hit pretty hard and act independent, but your other models like the Reapers have a higher resilience and can be summoned back.
  12. I’ve got Legions of Nagash organised for 2 weeks time, and scheduling my FEC guests have been a nightmare. Ideally i’ll get at least 1 of FEC/Nighthaunt done in Sept and the other in October. Just dependant on my guest schedules.

  17. Join Mick Wendel (@MikeyWendel ), Dan Corkram & I (@AnthonyMagro) as we unpack the Disciples of Tzeentch in Warhammer Age of Sigmar.
  18. Just in case you missed it, a few weeks ago I recorded Faction Focus Disciples of Tzeentch with two highly skilled DoT Changlings: Mick Wendel & Dan Cockran. Yes... there is more to DoT than Changehost, so we talk about list building, customising the force through spells/artefacts/traits, and getting the most out of them on the tabletop.
  19. Just in case you missed it, a few weeks ago I recorded a deep dive into the Slaves to Darkness allegiance with two dedicated undivided champions of Chaos in Travis Cooper & Shaun Ratcliffe. It isn't easy staying undivided and these two Champions talk through building a list, customising that focus with your traits & artefacts, and general tactics.
  20. Just in case you missed it, I caught up with 3 fantastic KO players in Gary Percival, Alexander Krohn & Ben Spinetti in this Faction Focus. These Sky Admirals talk through both the foundations of building a great army, customising it with command traits/artefacts/etc, and tactics.
  21. Just in case you missed it, last night I recorded Faction Focus: Sylvaneth 2.0 with long standing & successful Sylvaneth tournament players: Laurie Huggett-Wilde, Chris Welfare, Dan Street & Liam Burnett-Blue. The show runs for 3.5hrs and is a deep dive into building a list, the Groves, customsing that force, and tactical advice. I know the original video was useful to many so I hope this one adds equal value...
  22. My ears are burning! G'day Nick. As much as I wanted to run Vargheist (and I did try), it was hard to walk past Morghast Harbringers with their 3d6 charge. You've got an interesting list which can definitely work. Along with my VLonZD I ran a Terrorgheist because that VLonZD isn't enough damage, and Mannfred really needs to pick his fights and support with his command ability.
