  1. I’d be in favour of an an additional “bravery range” attribute for all units. Any unit could inspire one unit in range per battleround (not turn). I dont believe the general should have a greater bravery range by default. Lesser generals may be supported by more similar level heroes. Whereas taking Nagash will limit the number of support heroes nearby simply due to his points value. An army may be a coalition, rather than a dictatorship. Also, while most units would have a range value “-“ Veteran units like everchosen could provide leadership to lesser units.
  2. I’d like to use a shadowblade assassin as my general in an Anvilgard COS army. Secretive Warlord Cmd Trait with Vitriolic Spray, and the Venomfang Blade Artefact would make my Assassin general an absolute beast. Is it possible to set him up hidden (in reserve) to maintain an element of surprise too? Edit: This question was already answered, but didnt come up in my initial search.
  3. Thanks for the feedback. I get it. But, SP have always been a outlier faction. Im not going to get too hung up on a single battalion that could disappear with next weeks new GHB. 🤷 Tbh, It kinds of makes sense to me that we can’t ally in units that are already a part of the faction. GW may have produced weakened Cos battalions deliberately in order to limit the possibilty of OP multifaction soup. There is a trade-off: a vast range of units vs factional synergies. If we compare CoS with LoN - an all encompassing soup that contained most of the Death GA - CoS could feel restrictive. But i guess they just werent designed that way. Yeah, i will definitely be picking up some more. So Charrwind Raiders will be an option. I want to build a group of Order Serpentis too. So, SC Anvilguard will cover my bases for a drakespawn chariot and hydra too. 😀 Maybe the Scourge Privateer will seem super effective when compared with Order Serpentis!!! In the end, my corsairs and drakespawn may well get steamrollered by their new Lumineth cousins, but the will look awesome while they drop like flies .
  4. Thanks 🙏🏻 For the benefit of any future searchs. The core book FAQ Designer’s Commentary, p10 addresses this. In my case, Realm Reavers is a Scourge Privateers battalion in the GA Order book. So, it can be used freely in a SP allegiance or GA Order allegiance army. How if i wish to use it in a Cities of Sigmar allegiance the whole battalion and all it’s units count as allies.
  5. I would think its very likely they will at some point. It's just waaaaaaay to early in the narrative life cycle. Look at Space Marines in 40K - Blood Angels have the Red Thirst; Space Wolves have the Wulfen; Dark Angels have the Fallen etc. There is no reason this wouldnt happen to individual Stormhosts. The thing is that GW have had 30 years to diversify the SM chapters. AOS is still only 5 years old (with a somewhat rocky start). The most, i believe, that we have got so far is a collection of named SE characters from the Hammers of Sigmar. My guess is that Sigmar will hit that big red button one more time and release a fourth SE chamber, before they diversify stormhosts. Until then, loose ends are left hanging in the fiction and lore for possible development in future. If the lore moves forward too quickly, many players wont have enough time / resources / money to enjoy the story as it proceeds. Again, looking at 40K, the 9Ed boxset shows that the Primaris are changing, too. They were the clean cut new boys, but as of this summer they will be sporting crusade honors. There is still lots of design room in SE. Personally, I'd like to see a couple of units of lightning gheist released. Perhaps, something goes wrong with reforging when the Orruks smash their way into Azyr.
  6. I assume so. There is nothing in the core rules to suggest you can’t. Realm Reavers is in the original Order book, and is listed in GHB 2019. So, I thought it was okay for matched play. Can anyone show me to the contrary 🧐 I expect the battalion will leave GHB this year, however. Charrwind Beasthunters from CoS seems to be a (rather lacklustre imho) replacement.
  7. Yeah, i was aware of this. No problems in the Anvilgard box luckily. All up-to-date, and I wanted everything in there ^^ Guess I’ll have drop the battalion and pick up a battlemage for the time being. That will give me a 2/8 SE ratio and take me in under 1000pts too~~ Allegiance: Cities of Sigmar- City: Anvilgard (Illicit Dealings: Hidden Agents)Mortal Realm: AqshyLeadersBlack Ark Fleetmaster (60)- General- Command Trait: Blackfang Crimelord - Artefact: Drakescale Cloak Battlemage (90)- Lore of Dark Sorcerery: Vitriolic Spray- Mortal Realm: AqshyKnight-Vexillor (120)- Meteoric StandardBattleline10 x Black Ark Corsairs (80)- Vicious Blade & Repeater Handbow- City Role: Honoured Retinue (Must be 5-20 models)10 x Black Ark Corsairs (80)- Vicious Blade & Wicked Cutlass1 x Scourgerunner Chariots (60)Kharibdyss (170)Units10 x Judicators (320)- Skybolt BowsTotal: 980 / 2000Extra Command Points: 0Allies: 0 / 400Wounds: 73
  8. I recently picked up one of the Warriors of the Great Cities: Anvilgard boxes. Im aware that its not a very competitive set up, but it doesnt appear to be match play legal out-of-the-box because there are 7 units, 2 of which are Stormcast. According to the CoS battletome: “1 in every 4 units in a Cities of Sigmar army can be a <STORMCAST ETERNALS> unit. Those units gain the <CITIES OF SIGMAR> keyword and the city keyword chosen for your army.” (Stormkeeps, CoS, p63) Can i set the Lord-Vexillor as an ally in order to overcome the 1/4 rule? The only negative seems to that i would missout on a second Artefact if i chose Anvilgard: Black Market Bounties for my Battle Trait.

  9. I noticed that my FLGD still has a copy of Firestorm on the shelves. So looked into the Free City Allegiance Abilities. Are these extra allegiances match play legal post CoS? According to the Firestorm rulebook “ when you organise your collection to be an army from a specific city or under the command of a specific warlord, it benefits from additional allegiance abilities ... This does not change their allegiance, and you can still pick other allegiance abilities for the army normally. For example, if you had an army from Anvilguard that was made up entirely of Stormcast Eternals it could use the Anvilguard abilities and either the Order or Stormcast Eternals allegiance...” (Firestorm, p59) Assuming, im not using CoS as my main allegiance, could i still claim to run Stormcast of Anvilgard, or Nighthaunt of the Wraithfleet for example? Older allegiances arent mentioned in the GB, so im unsure when these rules expire(d). Thanks
  10. The Lumineth hero The Light of Eltharion has some lovely looking creamy armor. Could someone explain how i could achieve that effect either with contrast or regular GW paints? I heard whites are difficult to paint well. Is this going to be difficult for an inexperienced painter? Thanks 🙏🏻
  11. How do the oldest 2.0 battletomes hold up compared to the latest? Are any elements now common place, but missing from the earliest books like Maggotkin of Nurgle book, for example? Are any 2.0 books in need of review? My theory is that, if 2020 sees 40k 9th. 2021 could see AOS 3rd, and then Old World in 2022. If this happens, id like to see another series similar to Psychic Awakening prior to AOS 3. But what can we expect in the meantime beyond pointy elves and giants?
  12. Can someone confirm whether the Wurmspat are on 40mm bases, please? I'd like to use for them for some conversions.
  13. I think youre probably right. Arrival in a couple of months. Hope GW dont try to draw this out for as long as they did Sisters of Battle. Looking back, they were dripfeeding previews for months. Heaven forbid they launch with a limited edition boxed army. It seems a lot of 40Kers were unhappy. I assumed the Biggest Reveal would be the rumored giant faction, Sons of Behemat. Hope you’re right. Come on GW! Is too much to hope for a plentiful supply of ‘SoB vs Lumineth’ battleboxes in the near future?
  14. Wow, i wasn't expecting to find any local players this easily! I’ve sent you a private message with contact details!
  15. Thanks for the support, @Ayuvelon It might be a bit of challenge persuading my wife - she much prefers simple card and board games. I think I’ll build a couple of starter collecting kits to offer trial games to friends, first. Hopefully, it will encourage them to start their own armies later ^^
