    Thricefold Befoulment

    What youtube video do you mean? I´m currently painting my Thricefold, unfortunately no reports from the table, because I finished only two GUOs right now. IMO one GUO with a bell is a must have. Make him the general and give him that once per game ability to cheat with the wheel. That way you can get +5" movement whenever you need it. I run that a couple weeks ago and it worked great. 30 Plaguebearers that move/run 15" is pretty nice. Regarding battleline and other units, I simply don´t know. 30 Plaguebearers x2 and a unit of Blightkings I´m currently painting, but that is based on the models I like the look of, the fact that Plaguebearers are easy to paint and Plaguebearers are really good in 40k too. Other combinations I thought about: 30 Plaguebearers (320) + 2x Blightkings (320) + 3 Drones (200). In fact I think that Drones are somewhat mandatory. Played against Tzeentch and couldn´t get my hands on his heroes, meaning he was able to summon as many Horrors as he was comfortable with. Bad experience! 3x 10 Plaguebearers and 2x 3 Drones (760 overall, enough for some endless spells and/or an additional command point) 10 Plaguebearers, 2x5 Blightkings, 2x 3 Drones (840 exactly). Less staying power, more offensive output. If only the Drones weren´t that hard to transport...

    AoS 2 - Maggotkin of Nurgle Discussion

    The thing is: 30 Plaguebearers are really hard to remove and well worth the 320 points. But compare 10 Plaguebearers to 5 Blightkings. There is no competition, Blightkings are better in every single aspect and only 40 pts more expensive. Plaguedrones with GUO's command ability and a Daemon hero nearby are able to bring the hurt, but I doubt that 3 will be enough.

    AoS 2 - Maggotkin of Nurgle Discussion

    10 men units melt away like butter in the sun. You won't be able to get anything worthy out of your battalion's healing. In addition I feel that you severly lack damage output. Played against some Tzeentch Daemons a couple weeks back and they drowned me in Horrors. Couldn't reach their highly mobile heroes, which is another drawback of your list.

    AoS 2 - Free Cities (Firestorm) Discussion

    Hi, short question: which free city allows Fyreslayers to be taken?

    AoS 2 - Fyreslayers Discussion

    That´s the reason why I´ve refused to collect them. Second reason is that I would like to field an army mixed of Fyreslayers and Sylvaneth (love them both due to the look of the models) but I simply can´t find a nice list...

    Advice for Khorne 1000 point Doubles Tournament List

    I´d run something like this: Allegiance: Khorne Leaders Mighty Lord Of Khorne (120) - General Bloodstoker (80) Daemon Prince of Khorne (160) Battleline 5 x Flesh Hounds (100) 5 x Flesh Hounds (100) Units 2 x Khorgoraths (180) 2 x Khorgoraths (180) 10 x Chaos Warhounds (80) - Allies You´ve got lots of speed (DP, Flesh Hounds, Warhounds); high quality attacks (Mighty Lord, DP, Khorgoraths), good support (Bloodstoker, Mighty Lord), really good dispel capabilities (Mighty Lord, 2x Flesh Hounds (may reroll if near DP), cheap bodies for objectiv grabbing, cheap screen against alpha strikers (Chaos Hounds). Special boon: it´s almost immune to battleshock.
  7. Thanks for all your replies, guys. Well, SC seems to be the short answer, then. But what about some pure infantry Kharadrons or a minotaur based Beasts of Chaos army? Another thing I thought about is a Putrid Blightking heavy Magotkin of Nurgle army. Regarding Ironjawz: is the Mawkrusha needed for that enhanced Waagh-ability?

    AoS 2 - Maggotkin of Nurgle Discussion

    I´m running a unit of 10 Chaoshounds in my 1k list just to - get some screen against alpha strikes - beef up my numbers - get a fast moving unit I think they work fairly well!
  9. Hi all, because there is no gaming mate next to me who I can regularly meet for a game I have to drive at least 1 hour to get to a LGS in which I can play AoS. I also like to go to tournaments in the near future but these are also far away, some several hours of travelling needed. Right now I´m in the process of finishing my 3rd Great Unclean One, but these models can´t be labeled "easy to transport". As much as I like my 3 GUO based Nurgle collection, I hate to transport the models. Fortunately there are lots of 40k players in my area, meaning I regularly meet for some games at my home => no transportation issues when it come to 40k. But AoS is a whole different story as written above. Therefore I like to paint an AoS army that is easy to transport, yet offers some tactical flexibility. That´s where I need your opinions. What would be your "easy to transport"* army? *Sidenote: with easy to transport I mean an army that fits into one GW army case. Yes, it´s a tough call, but I like to achieve that goal. Points should be at least 1250 up to 2000. Thanks in advance HTG

    AoS Xmas Battleforce Box theories

    A good call. Though I don´t think that a big model is mandatory, because Tzeentch didn´t include one either. The same with different SCE and Bloodbound boxes. Though I think that Idoneth is a strong contender.

    How best to build a cheap army...

    This is some really good advice. Some armies allow for pretty good and simple HERO conversions while others don´t. Maggotkin of Nurgle for example: a box of Putrid Blightkings might seem to be expensive, but on the other hand you can convert almost any Rotbringer Hero out of it, be it Gutrot Spume, Rotbringer Sorcerer, Lord of Blights, Lord of Plagues,... And suddenly that formerly rather expensive boxed set is one of the cheaper ones... An other thing that hasn´t been mentioned yet: Battalions. Some armies are able to run good Battalions and they will save you money! Ironjaws for example are often seen with 300 points spend on Battalions, which means you need less models. Though it might not be the best idea to just take random Battalions to save money... And last I want to throw in: look for common tournament armies. It doesn´t have to be the top tier lists, just armies that are fielded on ig events. Not only do you know that these armies will work to a certain degree, some of them are rather low budget armies. Just do the math. As someone here has already written: to build a subpar army just to save 50 bucks may not be the right way if you can get a way better army for a few bucks more.

    Bloab isn´t that shabby compared to Sorcerer Lord on Manticore which a lot of people rate to be high tier. I´d say that out of the three he is the most versatile. If you´re a fan of Nurglings like me, well then you have to go a different route...

    I’m feeling stuck with Deathrattle.

    Thanks for sharing! You can get Chaos to a more dimensional playstyle by using allies or the seldem seen shooting options Chaos has to offer.

    How best to build a cheap army...

    There is a boxed set called Tzeentch Arcanites Changecult. ( https://www.games-workshop.com/de-DE/Bforce-Tzeentch-Arcanites-Changecult-2017 ) I think this is one of the best boxes you can get. A guy at my LGS got that box and 1-2 casters and now is able to run different kinds of 1000 pts Tzeentch lists which are fairly competetive in our LGS. You can even get 2 of them and don´t do anything bad. The Start Collecting Flesh Eater Courts will give you a decent start into Flesh Eater Courts (as has been mentioned), though this might also be a good start into some Vampire themed army, because it includes full sets, meaning you can also buil Vargheists and Vampire on Zombie Dragon / Terrorgheist out of it. A Vamoire on Zombiedragon + a unit of Vargheists is 700 points on the dot. Get some Dire Wolves for cheap battleline and you can run a fairly thematic Vamoire force. The Start Collecting Daemons of Nurgle is also really good, though I think you´ll need a Great Unclean One (expensive set) and some additional Plaguebearers at some point to get the best out of your Nurgle Daemons. Maybe 2 SC Nurgle Daemons + 2 SC Slaves to Darkness will give you a decent Nurgle force.
