  1. Thanks for this. Yes there are blog posts in the NicoLab stretching back to AoS v1.0: There are some more recent posts covering recent topics such as Sylvaneels (an extreme example of what can be done using Winterleaf’s 1 Order Unit) in the NicoLab as well.

    New member - New Idoneth Player :)

    Thanks @Ben. @Wmossuk - there are various clubs in London - such as the South London Legion: Post below or drop me a message if you’re interested. Here we are a couple of Wednesday’s ago. I’m also playing the Idoneth (including within a SylvanEels Winterleaf Army) Stores In addition, there are good stores where you can meet people and arrange games - Bad Moon Cafe has a great hipster vibe and is very well designed for tabletop gaming (terrain, table spacing, under tables, lighting/natural light, food and alcohol - you name it. I’ve yet to go to the West London Dark Sphere, but I’ve heard good things from a club mate who has.

    Sylvaneels at Bloodshed in The Shires

    So it was with great excitement that I took my Sylvaneels to Bloodshed in The Shires - a one-dayer at My list was a development of Winterleaf taking advantage of their new ally option Idoneth Derpkin: https://thehonestwargamer.com/aos-list-rundowns/surf-and-turf/ Basically, one uses the Order Unit in Winterleaf as 9 Morrsarr Guard (aka Eels, hence Sylvaneels) - which don’t count towards either cap on Allies - and then ally in the Soulscryer for deepstrike and charge buff. The list has built in CP for the inevitable reroll of a 6” charge and Inspo on Bravery 6 Eels. The TOs and organisation The TOs Dan George and Steve Curtis has clearly put a lot of thought and preparation into the event. It was particularly noteworthy as the first event of the Bucks Wargaming Collective and no doubt the first of many. Dan in particular was very helpful and understanding when the trains/replacement buses did their best to delay the arrival of players including me. The second game vs Hugh was one of my most enjoyable in a long time partly as Dan and Steve, Hugh and others had some quality banter (mostly about Hugh’s dice sock and Derpu’s derping). This was typical of the lively atmosphere in the event. Despite that, the game vs Hugh and his Freeguild bunker was careful and tactical. The scenery was high quality for a one-dayer and everything went smoothly (bar the trains😜). The pre-ordered Pizzas were an inspired choice. I could have ordered another it was so good 🍕. The attendees The attendees were mostly a healthy mix of Bucks Wargaming Collective and South London Legionaries - a great crowd overall - a real variety of experience levels from first time event all the way to @Age of The Erstwood Game One vs Clinton Liem (Ironjawz) (To be completed) Game 2 vs Hugh Halligan

    AoS 2 - Sylvaneth Discussion

    9 Eel Winterleaf is really fun. A bit too swingy with Eels and Derpu. Sylvaneth can now ally in Deepkin (so the Soukscryer is the true ally). Came 6th at a highly competitive one-dayer event - Bloodshed in the Shires! Bucks Wargaming Collective.

Always 8! I took on a better Legion of Grimghasts in the hands of Teck, with my Nurgle Sylvaneth. Teck made a great decision in giving me the turn after winning initiative. I managed to hold it to a minor loss: There was a Ben-off between two of our many Bens - Khorne Flappies vs Ironjawz. Recently, the Brazen Eleven of clubmates hit Blood & Glory. The variety of lists above was reflected at the event as a whole; and in the top 10, although a trifecta of Legions of Grimghasts on the podium is a bad sign.  Leo’s Sylvaneth faced Ben Murphy’s Legions of Grimghasts:  Lots of 40K and Kill Team: Ben’s @Thanatos Ares Tyranids took on the Dark Angels!

    SoCal Open Age of Sigmarresults.

    The FAQ nerfed Curse of Years - now you stop rolling dice when Ward saves block mortal wounds. This makes it much weaker.

    AoS 2 - Idoneth Deepkin Discussion

    Agreed - it’s laughable to suggest that Deepkin are top tier or overpowered when Legions of Grimghasts or Daughters of Khaine are dominating the top tables. Idoneth are pretty predictable and basically a melee-only Cavalry army with Deepstrike (with some choppy but fairly priced elite infantry - Thralls). The game needs elite armies and Idoneth are the main one of those (everything else is spamming 30 of this or 40 of that and Grots aren’t even back on the menu yet). It takes 12 Eels on the charge to delete a block of 30 Witch Aelves and not by a wide margin. Only 8 Witches die to the Electro Discharge). If you roll poorly on the Spears, then the remnants are doing 4 attacks back at you. If they have Blessing of Khaine - you can assume that the 10 remaining Witches will kill most of your Eels (40 Attacks at 3+ with exploding, 4+ rerolling, -1 rend, 2 Damage),

    AoS 2 - Idoneth Deepkin Discussion

    The fact that the description of the table refers to Idoneth Deepkin Units without saying “friendly” is a pretty clear indication that there’s only one Tide for both/all players. Furthermore the table entries themselves refer to “all units” - not “friendly”. It would also be an absurdity if it was High Tide and Ebb Tide at the same time on the same table.

    AoS 2 - Idoneth Deepkin Discussion

    Like the Nurgle Wheel, the Tide Table applies to both armies.
