    AoS 2 - Spiderfang Grots Discussion

    I cant see why spiderfang armies WOULDNT use the Fungoid shamen as the general. I mean for 80 points being able to run and charge is HUGE.. especially with a natural +2 to run (+3 with bellowing tyrant). I'm sorry for the constant post spamming. This is all new (and exciting for me). Decided on the realm of ghur for my army. Started making lots of over the top rocky bases to represent the harsh, spiteful landscape of the realm. Going to convert some trapdoor spiders by cutting the spider in half right where the grot sits. Keep the front legs and face with a greenstuff trap door over the top. I need to get a hold of a couple of the grots that are grasping at the ground from the 40k big mek shokk attack gun (pictured below) as if the spider decided to snack on his grot companion I figured I could use the back end of the spider diving head first into an open area as if it is burrowing into the ground! Most of the other spiders will be pinned almost mid air as if leaping from, onto, or over the rocky bases shown below. 30/45 done!

    Ok so what is the "go to" command trait?

    A Giant problem..

    If you are lucky enough to have a war mammoth from forge world, or your group lets your scratch build... the warscroll is absolutely ****** insane for 320 points.

    Battletomes, a bygone era?

    Why cant you use the tzzangor warscroll from the DoT book? FAQ states you can use whichever version of the warscroll you want as long as your opponent knows.

    The Rumour Thread

    I'm hoping that spiderfang grots get rolled into moonclan somehow. They wont get a book of thier own and fit the insect aesthetic moonlcan seems to be headed.

    AoS 2 - Spiderfang Grots Discussion

    Thanks @Lord_Skrolk for that information! I never bought the MalPo book. Well look at that! So In a SPIDERFANG army, the fungoid cave shamen CAN be the general, but wouldn't be able to take artefacts or command trait. We would lose out on a command trait as he has to be the general to use the command ability. But GBBoGS could still use his command ability. . but cant be given a command trait because he wouldn't be the general.. So the question becomes is the fungoid cave shaman's command ability good enough to sacrifice the command traits available to us? I LOVE jumping into new armies and theory crafting (which I assume we use the GA destruction command traits... even though we arent allegiant to DESTRUCTION??)

    @Lord_Skrolk I dont think your list is "legal." Because Fungoid cave shamne must be your general in order to use command ability, and he cant be your general in a spiderfang army. Just something I wanted to point out as an unfortunate loss of a tactic I noticed when building lists. not meant to "call you out" in any way.

    AoS 2 - Spiderfang Grots Discussion

    Yes but at that point I would need 3 units of moonclan or other destruction battleline. That seems like a waste of points to me for a spiderfang army. Thinking 40-60 spiders is going to be where I land for 2k so i will go with spiderfang allegiance and allies.

    If I run a spiderfang grot allegiant army, do moonclan grots still count as battleline?

    How do you the A-rok to cast three a turn? And why are they awful? What problems do you run into with them?

    AoS 2 - Maggotkin of Nurgle Discussion

    What is the role for the lord of afflictions? He is a great model, and can hold his own in combat. But I do think you would get more use with either some more infantry (marauders, warriors of plaguebearers) or even horticulous for a second "free" tree and REALLY ramp up the summoning points. Also He is a TANK and offers great target saturation when the blightkings charge in. Alternatively, by dropping the shakles, and the LoA you could add in a harbinger of decay and some infantry to really boost your survivability. I like the LoA.. but I'm not sure he will have as big of an impact on this list as other choices. Hope this helps.

    A slowplayers confession - advice needed

    PLAYING SLOW and SLOW PLAY are two totally different thing. PLAYING SLOW results from a couple things. Not knowing the rules as thoroughly as one should. This includes army rules, core rules and rules of your opponents army. Indecision and lack of a distinct game plan for the scenario. These are not a huge problem in casual games. In tournaments.. it is annoying as an opponent because the events are usually timed. With only 2.5 hours for a match in games where if allowed to flow naturally could take 3-4 hours. SLOW PLAY is a tactic employed SPECIFICALLY to hinder an opponent. See also: ****** move. It is used to give your opponent little time to play/not bring the game to any meaningful conclusion. Usually resulting in VERY close matches or minor wins due to a deliberate action to limit the opponents turns. This should be a disqualifying action/bannable offense as by TOs, if observed. You play slow (judging by your post) and are not slow playing. VERY distinct difference here. Playing slow is not a bad thing. Maybe a bit annoying.. but nothing malicious. Its ALL about intent.

    Thanks for the response! Yes with an army as cool as spiderfang and not necessarily as competitive (although, admittedly, that is one of the reasons I choose them to put this notion to the test).. the rule of cool prevails. I have not had much experience with Destruction.. really at all. Going through the warscrolls availed to us, It seems the warscrolls with the most synergy with spiderfang are really only the Fungoid cave shaman. The grot shamen is cool for casting endless spells and a source of ranged mortal wounds, while the bonegrinder gargant and rougue idol being beatsticks that take up every point of the 400 point ally limit. Moonclan grot sbeing good for objective campers as You pointed out. Anything else I am missing??

    Piggy backing on what @PlasticCraic said ... Why dont more Spiderfang players run a GA army to get around the 400 point ally limit? Maybe with one or 2 large blocks of spiders. How do you guys deal with battleshock. My nurgle army is all but immune to morale with high bravery, hard to hit/kill multi wound units, and plethora of healing abilities. Is it better to take MSU spider units to mitigate bravery.. but then the DOPE buffs are only one a couple models as opposed to a a large block of spiders! I bought 60 spider riders, an A-rok and a grot spider boss last year and am looking for a change of pace for a bit after playing Nurgle exclusively for 2-3 years, including a great finish at the NOVA GT this year..which saw me playing MANY practice games.. several per week. a tad spent on the nurgle front and I think spiderfang would be an awesome change-up!
  15. Hey there! Thanks for the kind words I spent quite a lot of time reconverting Glottkin for this event in particular. Added a citadel tree growing out of the top of him, and another large branch growing off the side for his brother to stand on. Also kitbashed/converted a nurgle chaos Warshine to match my army using a corpse cart, epidemius and citadel trees kits. Went for a vibe like..a travelling compost/mulch salesman using dead bodies as the compost...with trees and mushrooms sprouting from it. As for the list, yeah I was bummed PTWB got removed, but it was kind of broken. Ran a blight cyst and stacked a couple "feel no pain" abilities (harbinger and warshrine) for max durability. Here are some pictures. I didnt think I deserved a perfect paint score. And I genuinely feel bad for the peeps who didnt score that maybe should have. I had my army scored personally by Pete Foley. Sorry for the poor picture quality. My phone has brain damage. https://imgur.com/a/6fF4zJN some close-ups of some of the blightkings for those interested. Same as when you saw them, @SlaaneshCultist
