    AoS 2 - Gloomspite Gitz Discussion

    I came to almost the same list, though shy of Squig Hoppers. Instead I´d run 20 Stabbas (130) and 6 Snufflers (70) to bring it to 1000 pts even. That way you offer your opponent 3 major threads (Mangler-Boss, Squig Herd and Bounderz) which can be buffed by the Snufflers and protected by the stabbas. Speed is not the name of your game with that list, therefore a row of Stabbas in front of your main damage dealers might protect you from strong alpha striking lists. 130 points for an almost 40" wide screen is good IMO. In addition with the Hand of Gork and if your opponent doesn´t bring an alpha strike list, you can use these 20 bodies to run for objectives. I think that might be a well rounded force.

    AoS 2 - Gloomspite Gitz Discussion

    Personally I refuse to play wizards. In my opinion 1 wizard is a gamble, even 2 might be. The reason is: against magic heavy foes your wizards will do nothing, no casting, no dispelling. Due to the fact, that magic heavy armies offer multiple ways to increase chance of casting and / or dispelling. Against low magic users, magic is nothing but a thorn in the side. I do not know any potentially game changing spell on a 90 pts wizard, meaning I see no reason to bring a "dispel wizard" on my own. In addition, the really powerfull spells often have casting values above 7+ making it a real gamble to successfully cast such a spell. That being said, I think that Hand of Gork is one of the best spells in the game. Cast on a unit of 20 Grots with some hidden Fanatics is able to cause major mayhem in the enemies backfield.

    AoS 2 - Gloomspite Gitz Discussion

    It's almost exactly what I did. I'm so heavily thrilled by Gloomspite, it's insane! A great Battletome with a great range of minis and themes. Well done, GW!

    AoS2 - Dankhold Troggoth Discussion

    Mulg should be too tall to represent Mollog, though he might fit for a Trogboss. Best Hordes Trolls might be the light Trolls like Slug Troll, Winter Troll and the like. Reaper´s Bones Series is full of really cheap yet characterful trolls of the right size to represent troggoth units in AoS. I can highly recommend these.

    AoS 2 - Gloomspite Gitz Discussion

    The larger the unit is, the smaller the advantage of spears is. The only advantage spears offer is that if you can get only 1-2 Gitz in base to base with your foe, then spears will get you more attacks than Stabbas. But to be honest, in this case you will cause so few wounds it doesn´t really matter. In all other cases you will get almost as many hits with both options: Stabbas in two ranks will give you the same number of hits as Spears in 3 ranks. Yes, that´s why Stabbas are better. But if you do the math, the damage output of a 40 Gitz Stabba unit is nothing to write home about. You´ll most likely get something around 14-15 hits due to model positioning, equaling in 2,5 mortal wounds and 10 Rend "-" hits. Against 4+ save that´s roughly 7 wounds... Interesting thing is that snufflers are almost as good as the Loonboss´ command ability when it comes down to inflicted wounds. And the lower the opponents save is, the more advantageous snufflers are.

    Painted Shadespire Warbands - Please post

    In a city beyond imagination...

    Let's Chat: Chosen Axes

    Hi all, which bands (well, cards that are shipped with the bands of course) are recommended if I like to get the most out of my Chaosen Axes? In addition, what are the basic startegies that work well with the Chosen Axes. Sorry if my questions sound dump, but I´m extremely new to the game, just finished painting my warband and now I wait for the first match...

    Varanguard is battleline in an Everchosen army!

    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.

    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...
