    AoS 2 - Flesh-eater Courts Discussion

    Wanted to know what u guys thought about this list. The kings ghouls battalion is only there to reduce me to 5 drop. It gets me an extra mount trait and gives battlshock immunity to anything around the crip ghast courtier, I'll be using that exclusively on the 40 ghouls. I basically have 2 screens and 4 seperate threats, the 2 monsters, 40 ghouls, and 6 horrors. I'll be Summoning in a varghulf for the horrors. I know I know.... It doesn't have an arch regent but I had to make a sacrafice somewhere Allegiance: Flesh Eater Courts- Grand Court: GristlegoreMortal Realm: GhurLeadersAbhorrant Ghoul King on Royal Terrorgheist (400)- General- Trait: Savage Strike - Artefact: Ghurish Mawshard - Lore of Madness: Blood Feast- Mount Trait: Gruesome BiteAbhorrant Ghoul King on Royal Zombie Dragon (440)- Artefact: Gryph-feather Charm - Lore of Madness: Spectral Host- Mount Trait: Razor-clawedCrypt Ghast Courtier (60)Battleline40 x Crypt Ghouls (360)10 x Crypt Ghouls (100)10 x Crypt Ghouls (100)6 x Crypt Horrors (320)BattalionsKing's Ghouls (120)Endless SpellsChalice of Ushoran (40)Total: 1940 / 2000Extra Command Points: 2Allies: 0 / 400Wounds: 118

    Finishing games with death....

    Since skellies mostly hit and wound on 4s and if I have to roll 100 dice I'll usually ask if we can run the averages and my opponent can roll their saves. (I don't know if this is despised bc it's a game of rolling dice but with that many dice you will always roll the average out). Even if I can save 5 minutes it adds up. I also time my own turns to 25 minutes. Never have asked an opponent to do the same. I do know most people not conscious of this problem can take a long time with their turns so it might not even be your fault at all. I also try to rush set up before the timer starts if possible. Because set up can easily take up 30 minutes with pleasentries. Its hard rushing set up with out coming off as a try hard though.

    Your absolutely right, I didn't feel like paying for and painting another 30 🤬 SPINDLY ghrimgast. Especially when I got a great deal on some really decently painted 40 skellies.

    He still had to pile in to the closest enemy model didn't he? I'm not saying you did anything wrong either, he beat everyone he played against. What did your list look like?

    How did he kill them both? Were you bubble wrapped and did the exploding ghyrstrike on the thirster do a ton of mortals? I feel like the most they can do is 20 wounds a turn and with inspiring presence the skellies should have held out. You actually played my clubmate at game 5, really good player. Those 4 ballistas feel like such a threat when they're in your face

    Honestly it was tough, I remember back in the good old days when you didn't have to worry about 14 wounds on a 4 up armor save..... My opponent went for the double turn (which he didn't get) and moved both bloodthirsters and the daemon prince into charge range. I had a huge piece of terrain blocking the middle of my deployment so all I could charge them with was the 2 blocks of 40 skellies (both units rerolling hits bc of command ability). There was also another wierd piece of terrain that the thirsters were on so I could hardly fit any skellies in combat. I killed the daemon prince and got Skarbrand down to 3 wounds and chipped another 4 off the other thirster. I think if my van hels had gone off with at least one group of skellies possibly 2 of the 3 targets would have gone down. On his turn he blew up nearly all the skellies, his 30 letters killed my screens, he doubled and killed my 30 ghrimgast with 30 letters and burned one of my objectives (it was Better part of Valor) in my Turn I burned one of his and we were equal on victory points. Came down to kill points and my full strength rerolling hits VLoZD had to kill his 10 wound bloodthirster w/ gryph feather charm to win on kill points. I barely killed it with the final claw attacks.... I hate relying on the VLoZD to kill anything.....

    Yup, Attached a pic below With idóneth, daughters, khorne, nurgle, and stormcast alpha striking I use them as screens, 3 screens for my 3 big units, if that's not necessary they babysit or go capture an objective that's lightly guarded. They're tough little guys that can go toe to toe with any other 10 wound battleline. They're also great at pulling up on contested objective where all the fighting is going on, since they're not the main focus they'll usually always grow back and hold someone in battle so the reapers or dragon can retreat or just add bodies so I can capture or continue holding objectives

    So I just finished a 58 man tournament over the weekend in New york with out a loss. I had 5 great opponents and games! I BARELY won each of them but eh... I'll take it. I placed 9th overall, they had a unique scoring system that valued battle points over wins and losses. I'll post a couple thoughts real quick. Hope it can help someone. I faced khorne bloodletter bomb mix. death with Arkhan, Nef, 60 ghrimgast. mixed tzeentch with 9 enlightened. khorne with 2 bloodthirsters, sword of judgment daemon prince, 30 bloodletter. legion of azgor (chaos dwarves) With the prevalence of khorne in the meta it was tough to get my spells off with out casting bonuses, it made taking 2 necromancer kind of pointless, especially because they were so slow. I originally took 2 because I wanted to cast VDM and overwhelming dread/fading figour every turn. Sword skeletons were clutch, especially with all the minus to hits out there. Theyre just so slow I feel like I really have to start practicing putting them in gravesites more often so I don't make them useless right at deployment with bad positioning. I'm considering swapping out 40 with 10 to 15 black knights because they can keep up with the VLoZD, won't have to worry about battleshock so much, will be able to take out monsters more reliably in this monster meta (I could ve completely wrong about them, I've never played black knights). Doppelganger cloak was awsome Lord of Nagashizzar pushed skeletons into good damage dealers, especially with the rerolling hits command ability Never enough command points, I want ALL my units with extra attacks and rerolling hits! And resurrecting units! I timed every one of my turns to be under 25 minutes so we could get all 5 battle rounds in. I felt it was necessary with the amount of bodies I had.

    Taking this to a 60 man tournament coming up. No realm rules! Realm artifacts are ok though. Any thoughts?

    Top 10 at Facehammer with Deathmarch

    Yea I don't get what your complaining about. You had 40 skeletons, 20 grave gaurd and I'm assuming plenty of screens. Why were u worried about 6 fulminators? U can literally bog them down with skeletons bc after the charge they are worthless (exaggerating a bit but they suck after the charge). Why didnt you just summon back the black knights screen up and do it all over again like.... I don't know..... Ian said the list was designed to do? And no reason to get mad for losing. If you've never played stormcast before you should be thanking your opponent that he taught u alot and seemed to be very nice after the game. U wiped 10 sequitors turn 1 u said? I've never seen a fun "just playing the models I like" list do that before.

    AoS 2 - Legion of Blood Discussion

    To my understanding that's correct
  15. Here is the rubric for the painting. Like @sal4m4nd3rsaid earlier most players averaged 15 pts with fully painted and based armies. I think NOVA is being absolutely mischaracterized by a couple people on this chat. The whole event had a good atmosphere. I never once heard rumors of cheating and the painting minimums produced beautiful armies. The armies that achieved max painting scores really deserved them. It sounds like they lost your painting scores or something which really does suck because i did see your army and it at the VERY least deserved the second tier in all the painting scores@Black_Fortress_Immortal. No one was even really upset when all the winners were announced. They released their rubric far in advance. I do believe 6 - 0 should definitely be rewarded though. I just think there's better ways of achieving that then getting on the internet and blowing things out of proportion...... The loud really minor minority....
