  1. We celebrate Ritchie's triumphant return from completely unpaid JustSaying paternity leave with a massive THREE HOUR competitive review of the new General's Handbook 2019 (with accompanying FAQ). Will we like it? Will we not? Does it look great for the competitive scene? Tune in to find out! View the full article
  2. In this episode, Ian, James Tinsdale and Tom lees talk about Games Workshop Heat 3, and the impact of Fyreslayers and Slaanesh on the meta! View the full article
  3. Pretty much a dead faction now imho (lol puns). Top tier players crushing new/casual players at warhammer world or elsewhere will always throw up skewed results, but if you want to go to an event and be able to beat anybody in your way, LoN are not “it” anymore. They just have nothing going for them in the current metagame. Nagash changes were bad, but bearable - just play something else. Grimghast points change was ham fisted and shows a lack of understanding of why they were good. 10 points - maybe. 20 is a joke. Arkhan, Dire Wolf and Necromancer points changes were highly unnecessary. CP buying changes hit us very hard especially since the Nagash/Arkhan/Necro changes also hit our only playable battalions. I dont see a real competitive list out of LoN anymore. Grave Guard change is a joke (still the same points as hearthguard berserkers? Ok), Blood Knight change is still not enough especially considering their lack of supporting models. We’re tier 2, maybe. Probably more like tier 3 now.
  4. In this week's bumper episode we discuss the strengths and weaknesses of Fyreslayers and Hedonites of Slaanesh, talk about Tier lists and put together one of our own, and last but not least - discuss the 6 Nations event won by Team England last weekend including our own Ritchie and James! The tier list we discuss is available on our blog, linked here: https://justplaygames.uk/blogs/news/justsaying-podcast-age-of-sigmar-tier-list-june-2019 View the full article

  6. It really doesnt matter what the app says, the app can be wrong. Until there is a specific FAQ, battalions can't be used in LoG. Which might well be a good thing, as battalions being legal would make the NH *absolutely* pointless instead of just mostly pointless in the face of LoG
  7. Figured you guys might be interested in this (sorry for the copypaste) ... In this week’s episode of the Justsaying Podcast we talk in-depth about Ritchie’s epic Gloomspite Gitz list that he piloted to a 5-0 podium at Bobo this past weekend! Listen now! http://podcast.justplaygames.uk/5-0-at-bobo-gloomspite-gitz-list-tech-with-ritchie
  8. In this episode, we discuss Ritchie's 3rd place podium this past weekend with his Gloomspite Gitz list that is taking the internet by storm - you won't believe he did it with this one weird trick! We also talk about Games Workshop Heat 2, and the glut of news and releases coming soon. Exciting times for Age of Sigmar! View the full article
  9. In this episode, we take a break from book reviews to talk about the current state of the meta. Always strike first, benchmarks set by new books, power creep, and ways in which the meta is warping around this stuff - plus what you can do to counter it, if you're that way inclined! We also take a look at the top 10 lists from SCGT, a really good showcase of the current meta, and the Brisvegas event in Australia, which was won by the new Fyreslayers! View the full article
  10. Ian and Ritchie discuss the new Fyreslayers book - an interesting combination of powerful units, interesting abilities, unplayables and missed opportunities! We also discuss the recent controversial Khorne FAQ and accidentally talk about the state of the current meta a bit. View the full article
  11. I guess I just play a lot of competitive AoS? I mean, there’s a reason Seraphon aren’t running roughshod over the meta. They’re weak and lose to most of Tier 1. It’s a great achievement for someone to play their list well and with good matchups on the day anything can win an event, but it doesn’t mean Seraphon are suddenly in a good spot because they win something. Anyway look, I don’t want to get into an argument on the internet about this. If you think Seraphon are great against the whole of Tier 1, bring them to some majors and let’s see their incredible matchups start showing up in the stats!
  12. It’s tier 2 by my definition, but tiers are always subjective That said, ignoring tiers, Seraphon lose to: Anything with shooting (so Skaven, Stormcast, and more) Eels Nagash DoK Sylvaneth If you lose to all of the top and most popular lists that are played, you yourself are not a top list.
  13. Tier 2 lists are still capable of winning events with the right pilot and the right lucky matchups. 5 games and 100+ players can mean no hard matchups, or only one hard matchup, it's the way our game works. Nothing more to it!
  14. In this episode we review the Justice Series GT that we ran last weekend in Liverpool. We talk about lists, meta, shooting, and go into more details behind how and why we designed our rules pack plus some thoughts on active judging and why you should consider it for your next event!
