  1. I'd gladly pay £3.99 a month for access to all those things. I strongly disagree that this is 'utterly excessive'. It's £3.99 - you can't get a beer for that, and just about a coffee, a burger or piece of cake, and you burn through consumption of those things in 5 minutes.
  2. 30 Rend -4 Irondrakes over a bridge in Tempests eye stood next to a Hurricanum.
  3. I've used Victrix models widely in my Hallowheart army, kinda classical themed. They're great models - I've used Heavily Armoured Hoplites (PG) and Gallic Naked Fanatics (flagellants) . I don't have any decent photos. The second photo was a 'bridge' test I've also used Perry Mercenaries for the handgunners. I think as long as it looks ok, you put the effort in, and it has some kind of theme you shouldn't feel bad about it. I've used these in lots of tournaments - not at GW obvs. GW have had 1000's from me and continue to enjoy my custom - just not for massed bodies.
  4. I feel the Phoenix Guard will be unaffected by points changes in the GHB as they're well costed as a stand alone unit. The only doubt seems to be if GW do away with massive regiment bonuses for the 30. Handgunners win out over crossbows for two reasons. Firstly there is a increasing need for rend in the game, and secondly they work will with the bridge, so don't really need the extra range since they'll be 9-16" away and get the bonus for not moving. The bridge is absolutely key to the list, the list doesn't work without it - it has little speed nor reach. Luckily the bonuses to cast, +3 to +8, make it a virtual certainty. I'm not sure about the Stardrake in hallowheart - you don't really need that extra + to cast, but I know it has been used to good effect in Living City.
  5. Phoenix Guard really have been the key unit for me, which they should be - since they're more than 20% of the army cost. As you can see I have Wildform in my list so typically I will bridge most of the army including the PG and give them a 6" charge with the option of a CP reroll. That's +1 from the Musician and +2 from Wildform, being 9" away after setting up around the bridge. Generally speaking I will have Pha's Protection, Mystic Shield and Ignite weapons on them, and may have already put Word of Pain through the Spell Portal. They really become a choppy, hard to hit (-1/-2 to hit), hard to kill unit who can swarm an enemy and pin them in place. They get through a lot of work and I always use them aggressively. The Aetherwings were in this list as the tournament featured both Better part of Valour and Scorched Earth, and handy they were. Khinerai are always worth their points. My lists used to contain the Incantor and Comet, but more and more the splash damage from that is not so effective - especially in the age of OBR.
  6. I took the following to the Dutch Open and wound up coming 5th. 40 Flagellants with Warding Brand was a constant, if not game winning feature. For their points they certainly have a use, more of a defensive than offensive threat - making your opponent think twice about charging them. However, they are great at charging and tagging powerful combat units. They definitely accounted for a couple of Stonehorns and Ghoul Kings over the weekend.

  7. The second rank of 25mm base models are always within 1” range if in base to base contact so they can attack. This is indisputable - I’ve never experienced anyone playing it any other way.
  8. Are the Khineri still available? If so I will take them pls.
  9. Pack is up - the usual with a few small tweaks. Spammed this forum enough now, so will leave alone for a good few weeks, or until it sells out whichever comes first.

  13. Event Title: Bloodtithe@LGT Event Author: Marc Wilson Calendar: Events UK Event Date: 06/27/2020 09:00 AM to 06/28/2020 05:00 PM Provisional Pack here.
  14. Anyone buying a ticket should have had an email giving registration details. If you haven't had it check your spam folder, after all it is from LGT! You might find it nestled between an enticing offer from the late Sultan of Abuja's brother and and equally enticing offer from a potential Ukrainian bride. Neither of those is real - but the LGT registration process on www.tabletop.to is - so get down with that program. If you still can't find the mail please PM me or email londonaosgt 'at' mail.com Handful of places left, singles and doubles, go to lgtpresents@co.uk . Get yourself to London's biggest AoS Singles event. Great people, great prizes on offer from sponsors KR Multicase, Army Painter and Gamemat.eu. LIVE streaming from Honestwargamer.com and as much of last years 40k polystyrene scenery as you can eat nom!nom!nom!
  15. Francois, yes? Amazing nice one mate. I'll bring that Ricard that @Peegee tried to poison me with
  16. Sure Adam no problem See you in a few weeks.
  17. Hi - yes they're available from www.lgtpresents.co.uk - for singles and doubles. Singles has @ 10 left at the last update.
  18. Packs are up for the doubles and the main event at https://www.lgtpresents.co.uk/aos 90/100 tickets sold for the main event - Tickets available for Friday afternoon/evening 'social' doubles (this is really the main event) 🍺 🍆 Any questions please holla.
  19. Nooo, no no - careful here. 'Slain' and 'Counts as slain' are two different things, in the same manner as 'as if it were' is different from 'is'. i.e. 'as if it were the combat phase' does not mean it is the combat phase, and 'counts as slain' is not 'slain' - it's simply the easiest mechanism for you to remove your models from the table.
  20. No organiser would willingly allow this as to do so undermines the integrity of the event. If a pack says 1000 or 2000 points that the limit - you don’t have any mandate to break that. I wouldn’t want any new player to read this and think this is ok in organised match - it is not.
  21. Not a fan of this. The simplicity of quickly theorising lists with round numbers is major plus.
  22. Put a sacrificial Razorgor on it for a 40 pts Bloodtithe point.
