    Also, all the named character boxes that arent actually named characters, and the unique bladegheists that is actually... just a bladegheist. Yeah, distinctly got this feeling too, very weird and feels like they were just guys that didn't make it into what could have been a great book.

    Simple really - most armies rely on inspiring presence to not have their horde units die, and AoS is still ultimately a horde meta. Removing that ability is powerful. And it's a way of interacting with hordes that is not common, so people dont really have a defense against it. Battlebrew needs the Wyches to have gone first. Herdstone has a short range. Etc. But undoubtedly that is a downside, of course. The reason I dont like the battalion personally is that I think it locks you in to suboptimal units, but as a caveat, suboptimal doesnt mean not powerful. Both Myrmourns and Harridans are great units.

    Harridans are pretty much just worse Bladegheists, so they get ignored (and rightfully so, their debuff needed to affect 1 higher bravery since power creep has made most things 7 now), but they are still great. With the battalion though you're not making a subpar choice since its the only choice! They're not being broadcast, it's being covered on instagram.

    Oh yeah the VL is great too I both hate and love Ben's list. Shrieker Host is exceedingly powerful, but I think the list matches up poorly against the top end of the meta - Stormcast, Eels, Death and Sylvaneth. Ben clearly doesn't think so, though, and I'm really looking forward to seeing how he gets on with this at masters (not the results, but how his games actually go, you can go 6-0 with a list and know it was luck or 0-6 with a list and still feel it's great).

    I can’t remember if I gave a top x specifically, but in a nutshell my top leaders are the GoS (both), KoS, and Reikenor depending what your army is doing. Spirit Torment is also good and Arkhan is a great ally too.

  11. @hughwyeth this is awesome and as a fellow store owner, I: a) have so many questions and b) will be following you with interest! If you want to discuss anything about events (on the competitive side at least) give me a PM! Also I'm dying to get to some narrative events next year, which would seem like a perfect excuse to come down and visit too. Good luck with everything!

    Lots of deep insights into how to win with Stormcast here by Chrimbobo winner Gary Percival! Not just lists, also some very important ways in which the list has to be utilised to get the most out of it and why "gavbomb" is a highly underrepresented top tier list. http://podcast.justplaygames.uk/chrimbobo-winner-interview-gary-percivals-stormcast-eternals
  15. In the second of this week's bumper double episode, we talk to Chrimbobo winner and AoS stalwart Gary Percival about his Stormcast Eternals army. We get into some great crunchy detail about how to play the list, matchups Gary played at Chrimbobo, list design decisions and more. We talk about why Stormcast are a deceptively hard army to play well and give plenty of tips on how to smash people up with them! View the full article
