  1. Around me, it's common to help people through your list. There are a couple of our tournament grinders who will politely nudge you out of their traps if they're doing a more casual testing game: you move a model that's in threat range of one of his more convoluted combos "I mean.... I'm not sure I'd make that move right now" and if you ask, he explains what he plans if you do commit to it. As for people using gotcha-moments as part of the core gameplay, rarely intentionally. We all have a lot of rules on the table, I don't blame someone if they forget something once or twice, I've unfortunately done it to someone a few times myself. It helps that most of us either aren't playing super seriously, and the folks who do are chill enough to undo some things for forgotten rules. I have encountered a couple folks before, usually much younger folks who aren't 100% keyed into the social contract part of the hobby, and/or folks who are more in the mindset that the game is fun if you win, with a bigger win being bigger fun. I'd like to add that it's at a person-to-person level, I do not believe that all people in either/both of these groups do this, or that it's only people belonging to either/both of these groups, these are just the trends I've seen. The one that gets me is when 2 separate units of the exact same warscroll are deployed together (to serve as a slightly-harder-to-wipe screen or whatever), move together (to speed up the movement phase), but have no way to mark where 1 unit starts and 1 unit stops. I've had multiple games where I'll charge in, do 30 damage to this block of 10, and be told "no it's 2x5, remember" when no, I don't, because I forgot about it since they're all grey plastic with nothing to show the end of 1 unit. I should remember it, yes, but it annoys me that I have to remember the position and unit of individual models in your army.
  2. Total speculation: it might be a rebranding of the Aleguzzler. If what we see in the GHB is what we have, and there are no unlisted warscrolls or battalions, I think it's safe to say Sons will be pretty straightforward to build: at 1k run 1x3 Gargants and your choice of Mega gargant, at 2k run 1x3, 2x3, or 3x3 Gargants with 3, 2, or 1 Mega, respectively. My hope is that either the standard 3-man unit of gargants follow 40k vehicle squadron rules (deploy together as 1 unit, act separately), or there's some way to fill points. I think it'll be a bit rough at 1k with 2 units totalling to 4 models (1x3+mega), or 3 units/models (2 individuals+mega) down 150 points. At 2k it'll look a bit better, but what looks to be the template really lends itself to a 4-unit list. Obviously we don't have any real info on how the book gets around this, just spitballing with what we know now.
  3. I started AoS shortly after 1.0 launched, and since then I've picked up and dropped a handful of armies. I've been trying to keep it to 1 army per Alliance. What I have now is: Destruction - 2200 points of Trolls, about 300 points in other Gloomspite. This will ultimately be replaced with probably an easy 3k in Sons of Behemat. Order - 5350 Seraphon Death - 4000 Ossiarch, only 400 of which isn't painted. Chaos- 6030 Skaven
  4. I don't quite track my backlog, but I have kept a note on my phone listing every model I finish this year. For me, models go on that list when the unit is complete on its base and ready for a game, but the base may not necessarily be done. I'm currently at 51 models for the year across a handful of games, and I'm feeling pretty good about it.
  5. Hey folks, I've been using a fairly basic Katakros+Aegis+Shield Corp list as it's what I've had painted, and I'm looking to work towards a few other things. In addition to trying out @Gwendar's 60 Mortek+6 Stalker list, I'm hoping to get something going for the Crematorians. How does something like this look? Allegiance: Ossiarch Bonereapers- Legion: CrematoriansLiege-Kavalos (200)- Artefact: Helm of the OrdainedArkhan the Black, Mortarch of Sacrament (360)Mortisan Soulmason (140)- Artefact: Searing Blade20 x Mortek Guard (260)- Nadirite Blade and Shield20 x Mortek Guard (260)- Nadirite Blade and Shield20 x Mortek Guard (260)- Nadirite Blade and ShieldGothizzar Harvester (200)Gothizzar Harvester (200)Mortek Shield-corps (120)Total: 2000 / 2000Extra Command Points: 1Allies: 0 / 400 I threw the Crematorian artifact on the Soulmason to get the +1 to hit on the Liege, figured Arkhan was both a good aggressive caster and the most points-efficient fixed healing we get, and will be giving the harvesters the bludgeons. Please let me know your thoughts.
