  1. So with the upcoming campaign, I’ve decided to role with fyreslayers. My first entry, pictures to follow: Uthnir ascended the molten stairs leading to the magmaholds war-hall. His footsteps thundered with each step, embers whisping from his feet and and slowly dissolving into the air. Hulking, Broad shoulders supported his latchkey grandaxe. To any other, this axe would be too much to bare, but uthnir’s brutish mass of muscle and ur-gold runes littered accross his tanned flesh leant aid to wield such a colossal weapon. Strength. Pure strength. Uthnir prided himself on his prowess. A ferocious bezerker and a tactical leader, qualities that made him runefather of the mighty Vostarg lodge. As he reached the plateau of the molten staircase, a runesmiter and battlesmith awaited him. They both gave a low bow to their runefather. Uthnir returned the bow, and approached the edge of the plateau. Below the shelf of molten rock and lava he stood on, scores of vulkite bezerkers stood proud and in rank. The bezerkers started to clank their war pickts against their slingshields, the metallic sound increasing until finally the vulkites let out their guttural roars in an enormous crescendo. Uthnir’s eyes flashed a fiery yellow and red, setting a soft glow of fire on the rim of his golden magma-helm. “The Vostargi await you my chief”, the runesmiter said, approaching Uthnir and setting his ember staff on the molten stone. Uthnir turned to regard Torghal, his second in command and a highly revered priest. Uthnir shot torghal a wink, embers spurting out of the collision of eyelashes. Uthnir turned back to overlook his Vostargi. He hoisted the grandaxe off of his shoulders and thrust it forward, the war-hall instantaneously falling silent. Lava dripping from cracks in the molten rock and splatting on the stone floor was the only sound present. Uthnir held his greataxe out to his side. His trusted battlesmith, Holfga stepped forward and took the colossal weapon, taking a step back, resting the pommel of the greataxe on the floor and the main body against his hulking chest. “My Vostargi!”, bellowed Uthnir, his brutish arms now outstretched over the bezerkers down below. “My ferocious warriors and brothers!”. The vulkites responded with another clank of pick against shield. “What a fine sight I see before me. Grimnir himself would be proud to witness such a gathering of such fine Vostargi.” Uthnir dropped his hands down. He paced the shelf, gently stroking his fiery, ember coloured beard. “However, pride alone is not enough. For too long have we sat idle. Fighting wars on others behalf. Working for others to gain ur-gold as payment.” The vulkites below nodded in agreement. “Ur-gold that is rightfully ours in the first place!” Uthnir slapped his rune on his shoulder and the rune ignited into a blaze. Sparks and embers arced in all directions then cooled to a soft glow. The vulkites below went into a frenzy at the spectacle, proud to have the same runes hammered into their flesh. The true power of a fyreslayer and a gift of their fallen god, Grimnir. “I have gathered the elders, deliberated for many hours and I bring you a gift.” The hall fell silent once more. Uthnir knelt down over the shelf’s edge, his peering gaze striking into the eyes of every vulkite below. “A gift of war, a gift of conquest and the reclamation of ur-gold owed to us by every living being in the mortal realms!” The vulkites looked at each other at first, then looked back at Uthnir. What followed was the tremendous sound of scores of vulkites screaming and cheering in a massed frenzy. Swinging their picks and thrusting their shields in approval. Over the cheering vulkites, Uthnir stood up. Holfga approached and placed the greataxe back in his hand. The runefather hoisted his greataxe in the air, the vulkites now cheering and screaming beyond sanity. “For lodge Vostarg, for glory, but most importantly for the honour of GRIMNIR!” The war hall erupted once more, Vostargi and Runefather alike. Lava started to erupt. The walls started to crack and rumble. The great hall was alive once more. War had finally come to the mighty Vostarg.
  2. Hi mate, first of all welcome to beasts of chaos. They are amazingly fun to play. Before I give advice, I’ll start by saying BOC isn’t a faction that is renown for hitting hard. It’s a finesse faction that’s all about board control and using its tricks (ambush) to great potential. right, in regards to your question about what’s currently best isn’t the question you should be asking. We have 3 avenues to choose, WARHERD, BRAYHERD and THUNDERSCORN. Each avenues are great. WARHERD: less durable, hit like trucks and can also ambush when taking WARHERD units in a darkwalkers greatfray. Great monsters too. This is my favourite. BRAYHERD: angry goats that are crazy quick on their feet, flood objectives in vast numbers. Bestigors and ungor raiders are top quality. Also, you can play horde army or multiple small units. I prefer MSU as it’s more flexible and your not keeping your eggs in one basket type of thing. THUNDERSCORN: angry ogres that shoot lightning out their arses. Quite durable, fast and can hit hard. I’d recommend starting with what you feel suites you better. Or what looks better to you. Like I said, WARHERD I play 90% of the time due to their aesthetic and also brutal combat potential. All avenues are viable in this book, something not a lot of factions have as there’s always a go to list. Pick and mix units to suite you, you’ll have a blast. Unfirtubately, tzeentch are quite strong in BOC currently. Like you, I don’t like the tzeentch aesthetic so I stay away. I recommend WARHERD. Throw in some ungirvraiders and bestigors in a WARHERD heavy list and watch the blood run. Good luck mate! BOC are amazing.
  3. Guys, let’s stop the pointless bickering. This is an open forum where, naturally, opinions will clash. I for one rate bullgors quite high, whereas the next BOC enthusiast will rate them quite poor. Doesn’t effect me, I don’t care as my experiences with them have lead to great things. Gors. I believe they aren’t anything to get hyped over. I ALWAYS take ungors/ungor raiders instead of Gors for the efficient point cost and also for their smaller bases, which allows me to pack more into a smaller area, especially on objectives where the rule set “more models within X inches” comes into play. Also they are a brilliant screen. Lets turn this thread back to enthusiastic topics for BOC players.
  4. I applaud you mate. What I see a lot of is not so much hatred toward bullgors, but a few verbal slaps about how they aren’t that great and not worth their weight in points. Well, I totally disagree. I use tonnes of bullgors and I can honestly say bullgors are brutal. I’ll admit, they can’t take a slap but Christ, they can dish out the hurt. They always do my heavy lifting. I think the issue people get confused with is a one fits all type unit. Bullgors you really have to pick your fights.
  5. Im always torn with greatfrays vs custom builds. I love darkwalkers, but some of the allegiance traits and artefacts are so damn tasty also. It’s hard to choose at times as they all have merit and great benefits.
  6. I usually go darkwalkers for ambushing bullgors, then I put cleaver of the brass bull as his artefact. To make him a bit more punchy. Outside if greatfrays I run my doombull with either rampant juggernaut/rugged hide and cleaver of the brass bulls.
  7. So next year a plan on getting my last butt to tourneys. I understand that this build is by no means competitive, but I’m throwing it out for feedback. I’ve included the models I love and also a bit of synergy how I like to play my beasts. Pick me to bits guys! 3 things: my 3x10 unit’s of bestigor. I prefer running them as MSU, but would anyone rather a 30 man unit? With this build they can either be my ambushers instead of bullgors, or objective grabbers. wild rampage - I like this spell on my second shaman, but would any other spell benefit this build more? ghorgon - I love him and included him as a distraction to my opponent. A big model people tend to focus on. Also he looks badass! I understand he’s an investment in points, but for 200 points what else is there to include? Maybe bulk my 3 bullgor unit to 6 and gain an extra CP if I removed the ghorgon? I’d prefer to keep him in, but interested in your thoughts.

  9. Although 30 bestigors is good for the discount, running them MSU to maximise attacks from just a 10 man unit. Bestigors are very squishy and with low bravery we run the risk of horrific battleshock losses if out of range for CP’s if we run them 30 man. I run mine MSU as a high spike in damage to hit a unit hard. Up to you mate, I just prefer them in 10 man squads.
  10. Oh cool. I’ve just spent 2 hours building a list and finally I’m happy with it. Thanks for the advice. Rerolling 1’s is huge as I’m running 15 bullgors!
  11. Do we gain any other benefits besides the khorne keyword, reroll 1’s to hit and the once per battle ability? I’m thinking brass despoilers with darkwalkers greatfray. Get an alpha strike hopefully lol Just asking as gaining the khorne keyword could unlock more, but I assume this just opens up better ally units?
  12. Another question. The hungering warherd battallion allows our warherd units an extra 3” when we pile in. Does this mean our pile in activates at 6” or do we have to be within 3” and get to pile in another 3”?
  13. This is what I’ve been searching for, so ironjawz can spam the WAAGH!? So one megaboss can spam his own CA more than once?
