    AoS 2 - Idoneth Deepkin Discussion

    I play casually in a group of 5 so generally go 'rule of kool' over competitiveness. IDK are one of my 3 armies and I do love to start new projects, I already have the following: Akhelian King Soulrender Lotann Tidecaster Soulscryer 30 Thralls 6 Eels 10 Reavers Leviadon Allopex With that in mind what do you think i should get for Christmas? An Eidelon OR the Daughters of Khaine battleforce box (as very cool looking allies)??

    The Painting Contract - November 2018

    Not the best photography but painted this up for my friends Nighthaunt army, wish he'd left it in subassemblies
  4. The Soul Wars started with a surprise attack by the Nighthaunt on a gathering of Order dignitaries who were meeting with the mysterious Idoneth Deepkin. Zeraphina Heldensdotter, Knight-Incantor of the Hammers of Sigmar and Bael-Grimnir, Runefather of the Vorstarg lodge were had been granted an audience with Valenturnous, Akhelian King of the Ionrach enclave with the intention of discussing the recent emergence of the sea elves and their part in the Necroquake. It was then that Lady Olynder, Nagash's latest Mortarch, surprised the gathering as they attacked from within the seemingly unbreachable fortress walls. Although they took many losses, including the Duardin Runefather, the forces of Order managed to hold their ground and eventually the undead had to make their retreat. The battle ended in a stalemate but the Soul Wars had just begun.

    AoS 2 - Idoneth Deepkin Discussion

    I recently fought a 1800 point battle (Firestorm campaign) against BCR. He had to Stonehorn and 3x4 Mournfang. I had: King Tidecaster Soulrender 30 Thralls 6 Morsarr 10 Reavers Allopex Leviadon I decided to stay out of his way as much as possible for the first two battle rounds and then smashed him in the third. Unfortunately as I'd held back he'd already secured enough VP from objectives that I couldn't catch up. I'm looking for some strategy advice in this situation where the battleplan allows a lot of VP early on. We play casually so I don't really want to be told to get more eels.

    Dracoth Skin

    I'd try this, I'm guessing it's a quite similar in using Stegadon Scale Green, Russ Grey, Fenrisian Grey and Ulthuan Grey

    Removing casualties to deny further attacks (resolved)

    No. As per the Core Rules pg. 8 "Once all of a unit’s attacks have been resolved, add up the damage that was inflicted. The player commanding the target unit must then allocate a number of wounds to the target unit equal to the damage that was inflicted." It can of course be good strategy to remove models in such a way if they are in combat with more than one enemy unit. As they could potentially prevent a second unit from being able to attack if they end up being more than their pile in distance (usually 3") away.

    The Rumour Thread

    I played this back when it was first released and didn't think much of it.....but shouldn't we see the back of a demon as the reflection in the mirror?

    The Painting Contract - October 2018

    Ended up spending a lot of last month on Kill Team so going to get back to my IDK and Sacrosanct chamber.
  11. You're making me think that Beasts of Chaos Battletome and Start Collecting box aren't a bad idea after all

    AoS 2 - Idoneth Deepkin Discussion

    I know, it's only on a 4+ and it probably cost him the battle.

    The Painting Contract - September 2018

    Black coach for a friend Continue with my IDK and sacrosanct chamber
  15. We decided to play the variant of the ritual battleplan that was played out a couple of times in White Dwarf this year, where the Aelves are stealing souls from one of Nagash’s Soul Siphon’s. Unfortunately I don’t have a game board like the one they used at Warhammer World so instead I used the ‘chained stones’ objective thing from the recent objectives set and placed it on top of a hill. The IDK started and the Leviadon headed for the centre of the board with the Soulscryer and 2 Tidecasters using him as cover. With the potential threat of units that had been set up in reserve popping up behind the Aelven battle lines, Volturnous and a unit of 6 Morsarr stayed behind. On the right flank a unit of 30 thralls and an Allopex advanced towards the opposing black coach. Nighhaunt began their turn by casting the Purple Sun and Quicksilver Swords and they headed down the centre of the battlefield. Lady Olynder and the chainrasp entered the fray and the ghostly horde descended upon the Idoneth. The ethereals decided to go first in battle round 2 and had to endure the Purple Sun crashing in to the Chainrasp horde who were locked in combat with some Namarti Reavers after a very lucky charge roll. This didn’t prevent the Aelves being wiped out in the preceding combat though. Olynder, Reiknor and the Black Coach went out wide to the left and after magic and yet another high charge roll easily wiped out the Shark. In their turn the Aelves responded with charges of their own despite it being so close to high tide. The Morsarr demolished the chainrasp whilst on the other flank the Thralls formed a meat shield for the soulscryer who was about to start his ritual. Magic had seen the unbinding of the dreaded Purple Sun as well as the death of the final Glaivewraith who had dared to charge the Leviadon. This left the giant turtle open to charge in to a tomb banshee and form another barrier to allow the ritual to take place. The Aelves won initiative in round 3 and opted to go first, everywhere the quicksilver swords went the emerald lifeswarm followed ensuring the Soulscryers’ safety. The ritual began and immediately 7 souls were stolen. The ensuing combat saw the Idoneth go first and again do a lot of damage as several units were wiped out. Another 7 souls were stolen at the beginning of the Nighthaunt’s turn and things were looking bleak for them as they had been decimated. However there was still hope on the left flank where Olynder, the Grimhailer and a black coach were still lurking – plus a gap had opened up where the Thralls had been gradually whittled away. It was now or never as the Black Coach hurtled towards the exposed Scryer. Yet again a 10 was rolled and this meant he could fight in the charge phase where a double 6 saw him defeat the Aelven priest and win the game.
