    How do Blades of Khorne deal with Hordes?

    Skullreapers delete hordes mate. Or anything else really...
  2. Roark

    Any idea how to improve this list?

    What does this mean? Do you mean that he should make the army Phoenix Temple allegiance and take lots of Guard as Battleline?

    Haha, maximum irony. Nice one.

    I reckon a horde of Skellies is pretty much his worst nightmare actually. They'll take him down in short order, especially with 2" weapons. Skarbrand is much better pointed at huge, "invulnerable" models. Like apex monsters and characters. He'll blitz any of those.

    Wrath and Rapture

    Leaving aside exaggerations and generalisations about the Khorne player base, I think it's just kinda annoying for people to play a mid tier army and receive a steady progression of (overall) nerfs. Sure other factions are in a worse state, but that's neither here nor there. When you're playing mid-tier and have a 50% faction win rate, further nerfs just kinda feel very unnecessary. Khorne is almost exclusively melee, except for Priests in Gore Pilgrims. I think it's great to be positive and develop solutions and "get over it", but when the premier melee unit in your mid-tier melee army is mitigated fairly significantly, it's hard not to be a LITTLE bit cynical, especially when the supposed solution is to buy 3-4 boxes of suddenly not-garbage Bloodcrushers (Yes, GW is a profit-making business etc etc). I glean from comments all around the internet that the "Bloodletter Bomb combo" wasn't fun for a lot of people, but I wish it was rectified in a way that didn't leave our fearsome melee combat daemons overcosted and meh. I have an even more petty gripe to raise - that the Daemonettes' Locus of Excruciation directly neuters the one special thing that the new Bloodletters do. It seems to me that Hero-supported Daemonettes would handily defeat equivalent Bloodletters in melee combat. That feels a bit wrong... Has anyone playtested the boxed units yet? How's the balance? I confess I haven't read the entire thread from start to finish yet (though certainly some), so apologies if any of this is a bit tone-deaf. Feel free to ignore if so.

    1. You only get a Goreglaive in units of 10 or more. 1 per 10 lads. 2. I don't tend to see any fully tooled summoning lists these days, but I've seen a Blood Sacrifice here and there on a Priest or Shrine or both (in Gore Pilgrims, ergo 4 Blessings). Lots of min unit Reavers though, and full complement of characters (as always). Skarr pops up a bit. I've noticed a few peeps saying they're pretty satisfied with the churn of Tithe and summoning just through normal play. I reckon I am.

    Yeah, I was just being snarky because in general:

    Well that's annoying. Khorne is on a particular trajectory with GW it seems. Please stop winning all those major events peeps. Karanak miniature looks amazing. I had concerns about the very "crowded" heads, but I dig it.

    Well, if any suckers (like me) are still taking Bloodletters because they were easy to paint and there's a tournament in January, maximising no. of attacks is more critical than ever, and that can only be achieved through the Portal of Skulls, Wrathmongers and the Crimson Crown... Short answer: yeah, kinda?

    If they had 2 attacks each with Wrath and Rapture rules at the same cost, do you think that would upset the broader AOS community?

    AoS 2 - Blades of Khorne Discussion

    Ah yes, of course. Points increase for Flesh Hounds in recognition of their brutal new shooting capabilities. ;-)

    AoS 2 - Blades of Khorne Discussion

    GW apparently said that the Khorne side of the box comes to 500pts. If we assume Bloodletters stay at 120, Flesh Hounds at 100, and Bloodcrushers go to 140 as rumoured, that puts Karanak at... 140pts. Not sure I rate that very highly (given 5W@4+), but the model is so awesome...

    AoS 2 - Blades of Khorne Discussion

    If he's still 90pts, I'll be trying to squeeze him into every list I can. He gets "Look out, Sir!" and is melee effective now, but the biggest improvement to his scroll IMHO is that his free summon now happens at the end of his movement phase. That's gold.

    Absolutely this. I see myself slingshotting 30 Bloodletters with a 2+ or 3+ save to take objectives or confront the enemy. Then maybe charging horses with Knights of Chaos command on them while other Mortals waddle up the field.
