    AoS 2 - Legion Of Azgorh Discussion

    The stink of burnt metal and the black bile of ceaseless industry calls to me. Aqshy beckons me home. I've seen some third party models that look great and will mix nicely with Forgeworld, so I believe the time has come to start my Legion. Starting with blocks of infantry now. Quick question: how effective is the Dreadquake? I thought it was trash until I noticed it only costs a little more than a Deathshrieker, now it looks pretty economical (points-wise, I mean).

    Combating the Dreaded Hobby ADHD

    I acquired a bunch of old metal Bestigor, and lemme tell ya, painting them is a drudge. So many unnecessary details, so many repeated poses, all on a material that wants to reject the base coat and chips away if you sneeze on it.

    Most Defensive Army?

    Azgorh is good at defense, with tons of artillery hidden behind blocks of sturdy infantry.

    AoS 2 - Kharadron Overlords Discussion

    I'm really hoping they see some significant changes in the next GHB. Right now people want to like them but they're so flawed I would never recommend them.

    Proxy models in Matched Play

    Keep in mind that whatever Nagash does to Skaven ghosts in death, the Great Horned Rat is infinitely more unkind. He turns the overwhelming majority of them into writhing, fetus-like grubs in the Realm of Chaos after they die. Being a ghost soldier sounds way nicer! That said, I think the only people that would have real problems with your conversions would be grouchy people that would be no fun to play with anyway.

    GW is asking for advice on GHB 2019

    It breaks my heart that the Kharadrons are THE laughingstock faction of AOS. They need so much help that a few point reductions won't even begin to address their problems. I hope GW does something to make them less pathetic in the next Handbook.

    AoS 2 - Hosts of Slaanesh Discussion

    YES. I love that Slaanesh gives you incentive to take as many heroes as possible and just fling them forward. There are a lot of old metal Chaos champions that would make unique Exalted Heroes. On an unrelated note, I run Death Guard and Emperor's Children in 40K, so it was just a matter of time before Hosts joined my Maggotkin. ?

    AoS 2 - Hosts of Slaanesh Discussion

    I was thinking about starting a Slaanesh army, with a solid core of Chaos Warriors. In theory, they sound particularly good with the Seeker ability, since that enhances their otherwise slow speed. Has anyone else tried this, and if so, what were your experiences?

    AoS 2 - Maggotkin of Nurgle Discussion

    I'd suggest Bloab, unless you're a Nurgling fanatic like me, in which case it's all about Morbidex. I don't really get what they were going for with Orghotts.

    AoS 2 - Kharadron Overlords Discussion

    I think the main problem with the KO is that they're so different from every other army, the designers weren't totally sure how they'd play out, so erred on the side of caution making them overpriced and inaccurate. Now that they're more time tested, it's time to update warscrolls. Just having a couple of extra wounds on the Frigate would help so much.

    AoS 2 - Kharadron Overlords Discussion

    They look like dragonflies, which is very cool!

    AoS 2 - Kharadron Overlords Discussion

    Are Thunderers with a full compliment of rifles instead of special weapons any good at all? Rolling one die at a time to work the minor effects of said special weapons seems kinda fiddly.

    Why is it so hard to start AOS ?

    I approach wargaming with the patience of a Sylvaneth. I started collecting Tyranids in Second Edition 40k, and watched them sit as the tragic opera clowns of GW for well over a decade. A year or two of not being a top tier army is inconsequential to an old blood like myself.

    What alleigances are we going for?

    Mostly Chaos. It's scratching my itch to collect Tzeentch until I catch up with my Beasts of Chaos. If duardin are ever introduced, I'll probably test out Order too.
  15. It's true, it's all true! My Frigate is a big, (barely) flying marshmallow that couldn't hit the broad side of a barn in Amish country. And the Navigator is a second-rate Runepriest. The Frigate should inspire something like intimidation. But it doesn't. It's a Space Marine Rhino without the reputation for toughness. Granted they could keep reducing the points until it's worth it, but that wouldn't change the fact that it's a flying marshmallow.
