    AoS 2 - Blades of Khorne Discussion

    I for one can definitely see anti-magic becoming a strong(er) niche for Khorne in the new book, especially with the new endless spells things. Also as a mortals-only player who refuses to play Gore Pilgrims (because ****** mainstream) I'm feeling very hopeful with the prospect of redesigns of the batallions

    Being unfamiliar with how the stormhosts/temples work, could you elaborate a little on them and what it could mean for us?

    Might've missed something, but what would be the benefits of getting the Daemon keyword on these units? Re the Bloodsecrator, I can see that happen too but unless they give him mobility I can't see how he'll be used much anymore. 2 Aspiring Deathbringers could be more flexible. Also, although we've seen a few changes here and there in the game, wasn't the AoS policy to not change Warscrolls much?

    Did we see any hints at a release date? I guess we can expect the army mechanics to change quite a bit, especially since the factions are becoming more specialized. Being a primarily mortal player, I'm very happy about that. Compared to the beastmen herds, what do you think we can expect? The endless spells phenomena, based on their looks, what do you think they'll do? The axe looks damagey, to begin with..

    I've been tinkering on how to equip my Juggerlord. What do people think about Anraheir's Claw from Realm of Ghur? On a 6+ to wound it does 2 extra damage, can be useful with his charge ability?

    Haha, fair enough but you get my point though?

    I'm not a very experienced player, I've played a lot of 1k battles but am just starting to play 2k battles with my army (slow painter/collector). I run the Skulltake batallion, so I'm stuck with the 18" Bloodsecrator bubble (I stick the Asp Deathbringer to units I need to move). The Gore Pilgrims seems like the go-to competitive batallion, and probably allows for more offense, but I just don't like it fluffwise. Even though they're good units, I find the idea of priests, prayers and temples very un-Khorney, regardless of the AoS fluff. I've started to find that my army works best as a counter-charge army rather than a pure offense army. Most of the games I tend to get the first round, so I just set up in order to give my opponent a long charge range (increase his chances of failing) and to activate as many units as possible if he reaches me. This then means I can handle more of his army in a piecemeal manner, and start being more offensive with objectives etc in turn 2-3. I've found this to be a pretty good approach for armies who don't run Gore Pilgrims. Or rather, I've found running off with individual unprotected units to be suicide, hehe.

    Also don't forget that they get to pile in and attack before they die. I've found this makes them a priority for the opponent sometimes as he doesn't want them to strike twice in a turn (once on their own, again when removed). But yes, keep them in the backfield inside the Bloodsecrator bubble, you want them with atleast one extra attack.

    How do you guys handle Nighthaunt? I've been pretty mauled by my friend over the last games, especially the bladegheist revenants are really hard to knock out. They're damn fast too, especially with Cogs.

    Wrath and Rapture

    Please dear Chaos gods, and Santa, and GW, do not include any useless Bloodcrushers in the box...

    Can we expect to see new warscrolls for them, you think? Considering it's a "new" release? Or is the general consensus that they are fine as they are?

    On the subject of Reapers: A maxed out Skulltake batallion with 2x5 Skullreapers and 1x10 as a grand hammer. Complement with buffy characters. Easily fits in 2000p. What do you think?
  13. So in my continued search for good looking alternatives to the Khorgorath I came across these. My army is more neutral/oldscool themed too. Their size compared to the Khorgorath is a bit hard to tell, especially without the base, but what do you think? Would you have a problem with it in a friendly game or laidback tournament? https://www.forgeworld.co.uk/en-SE/The-Wolf-kin-of-Russ
