  1. It’s Bill Souza (not Ben) but I still love you all 😉. Twitter has spoken and it looks like I’ll be taking FEC to LVO as well. I just can’t seem to put them down haha. I read your review Darren; how are you getting pinions on Arkhan? If I’m missing something and I can take it I absolutely will but he can only choose if in allegiance correct?
  2. Thanks for the support lads!

  5. List was: GKoTG GKoTG GKoTG Arkhan the Black 10 Ghouls 10 Ghouls 10 Ghouls Swords Cogs 2 extra CP
  6. Sadly was only 22 strong day 1. Finished out at 19? I think. Here is the top 7.
  7. Ok, got back from Michigan GT last night and happy to report a very successful tournament. After 5 games vs. KO, Khorne (CoB), LoN, LoN, Nurgle I was lucky enough to take the big “W.” 5-0 and 242/250 BP. Same list as Nova
  8. Thought folks may be interested; I am getting roped into an impromptu GT this weekend and going to the Michigan GT. I wasn't planning on doing another event until Da Boyz so my other 2.0 lists aren't ready yet. With that being the case I'll be taking my FEC NOVA list again. Not sure what the missions are so it'll be interesting lol. One constant remains; I am sure I will fight Nagash all weekend ?.
  9. Hey Mephisto, this is Bill Souza. If you go to the let’s chat FEC thread I answered some of the tactical questions about the army. As far as my matchups. I played vs.: Nurgle Nagash/60 reapers Mixed Order Tzeentch DoK Nagash/30 reapers/40 skeletons
  10. Any updates on the AoS packet coming out?
  11. Same here. The community just needs more data. The spells were pretty powerful but I don't think they were winning games on their own. Books with their own spell lores likely have most of the tools the realm spells offer already. They are a good boost to older stuff without their own lores.
  12. It was significant; as I mentioned in my main post the mirrorpool spell is just broken and needs and FAQ. In realm of rust the all star was transmute. Allowed some good character and medium infantry sniping without investing a big monster to take them down.
  13. Hey guys. This is Bill, the FEC player. I have been playing Nurgle in tournaments the past year but wanted to pull the FEC out of retirement with 2.0 since it was my first love of AoS. Before GHB I have been playing competitive 40k and Fantasy for years but relative to many, I am new to the AoS competitive scene (first tournament for AoS was LVO 2017.) Since then I have done fairly well. Anyway.... To be blatantly honest with you; this list does not work in many formats. Keep in mind that 2/6 missions were hero scoring (duality, and place of arcane) and with the exception of the last mission the rest had 3 objectives max. The list was built for the format, it'll struggle if other GHB missions are used. The trick with the army is it is very difficult despite it not looking too hard to use. You need zen like patience at times lol. You deploy, play and time everything very different depending on the opponent. I had missions where I alpha struck with the horrors/flayers, missions where I used them to bolster my own deployment zone and others that they didn't come on unit turn 3. It looks like a beatstick list but it's difficult to play right. Key component as well is flayed pennant. I always deployed him last to see what flank my summoned units would be best on and then between pennant and cogs used that +5" to charge for max effectiveness. Keep in mind too; mirrorpool was in play rounds 1-3 which if you have on combat/wizard monster (or 3!) is absolutely horrifying. It does not count as a move so you are teleporting 18" and then moving 14" (16" with cogs.) Arkhan is primarily there for the +2 unbind. When you have valuable assets like GKoTG as your core you need to stop the nasty spells. Secondarily he was there for reliable cogs cast and curse of years for ranged MW. Tertiary he was there as a flying creature who moves 18" with fly with cogs up. I lost round 2 against Wiliam (the tournament winner) and to be honest it was Place of Arcane Power which I should easily win vs. his army. I didn't make any errors but lost two GKoTG to some unfortunate hand of dusts (couldn't stop portal, hand, and chose the wrong hand) and lost 3 priority rolls once I was on the backfoot so it swung into his favor. We both had a laugh because the first thing we discussed was how this was bad for him lol. Best part of NOVA was despite what others seem to be saying I had 6 amazing opponents with 6 of the cleanest and most sporting rounds of competitive wargaming I have ever played. The scoring and prizes could use some tweaking and I think the TO acknowledges that. As a side note and shameless plug hoping for some support: ETC is now allowing AoS as an event. I will be captain for the 2019 USA team and we are forming a team of ETC vets, and top players in the USA to see how we can do. Wish us luck!
  14. Hi headhunter, I usually play in the Bridgeville store but I try to attend the monthly AoS get together at Legions as well. We are setting up a tournament for March 12th at Legions. Check it out in the events section or the Legions FB events page.

Rules For Steel City Sigmar Tournament Series Event Rule Books: The Warhammer Age of Sigmar rules, the MOST RECENT warscrolls, and all GW FAQs will be in use. MODELS AND POINTS: 1. Each player must bring a Battlehost army consisting of 2000 points or fewer in accordance with the matched play rules in the Age of Sigmar General’s Handbook.Forge World will be legal for this event. NOTE: All measurements to and from models will be done from the base. Both square and round bases are allowed. 2. All models must follow “What You See Is What You Get” (WYSIWYG). All weapons, war gear, and so forth must be represented on the model unless otherwise approved (see number 3). Your models do not need to be painted but they do need to be FULLY assembled. 3. Pictures of conversions or "counts as" models must be emailed to the Tournament Organizer. There is an expectation that your conversions or "counts as" models are "hobby quality." No "toys" will be allowed. 4. As we do not have the resources to check army lists before the event we ask that you review your opponent’s army list before the round. We cannot do anything about miscounted or illegal army lists after the fact. HOW THE TOURNAMENT WORKS: • Competitors will participate in three (3) games over the course of the day. In each game, you will play a scenario and record the outcome of the battle on your results sheet. Each round you will play a different opponent. • Each round will last 2 hours. Players may begin playing as soon as they have finished deployment. • In the first round, players will be matched up randomly. After the first round, players will be matched up according to current rankings in the tournament (based on the number of points they've scored) e.g., the person in first place will play the person in second place and so on. If a person receives a BYE they will be awarded max points. • You will not play the same person twice • We will do our best to prevent players from playing on the same table twice. • The pairings for each round will be posted as soon as they are determined. Please be sure to arrive at your table ready to play right away. • Slow playing will NOT be tolerated. If you suspect your opponent is slow playing PLEASE notify the tournament organizer as soon as possible as we can not do anything about alleged slow play after the fact. • Each game will be played on a 4' x 6' board. • Players will receive Results Sheets at the beginning of each round. Each results sheet must be filled in properly to ensure that match-ups and point totals are correct. Once Results Sheets are completed they are to be turned in to the tournament organizer so the scores can be entered into the computer. BATTLES: We will be utilizing three of the six missions listed in the matched play section of the Age of Sigmar General’s Handbook. They will be randomly selected before each round. Rounds will be 2 hours long. What You Need to Bring with You: -Your (hopefully painted) miniatures -At least THREE copies of your army list -Rulebooks and any additional books you need -Pen and paper -Dice and templates -Tape measure -Something to transport your army from table to table Awards: Best General- Store Credit Second Best General- Store Credit Third Best General (pending attendance) – Store Credit Best Appearance – Every model must be painted and based to qualify – Store Credit Smokin' Boots - You got crushed... and you deserve an award for your epic failure. ITC Points- This is an ITC event and scores will be submitted to the ITC database for the AoS ITC rankings.

See below for details. Please email mikosan18o2@gmail.comwith any questions. How the Steel City Sigmar Tournament Series Works: In an effort to create a more unified community, consistent attendance, a large scale goal for players, and some friendly competition amongst the community we are introducing the AoS Steel City Sigmar Tournament Series. At the end of the year the top players in the community will be rewarded with some handsome rewards. · Every player will be awarded points just by attending. · The amount of points you can earn vary based on the size of the event · Points are awarded based on the number of players in descending order · Ex. If there is a 12 person event; the player in first place will earn 12 points while the player in last would earn 1. · People who commit to attending an event and are a no-show without notification will be docked points based on the size of attendees. · Awards at the end of the year will vary based on success of the system. · Ex. If we grow to the point where we run a GT the prizes will be greater vs. 10 months with only 6 person events so get your friends involved!! · Awards will be for the same as each individual events: · Best General (Most series points) · Second Best General (2nd most series points) · Third Best General (3rd most series points) · Best Appearance (most best appearance wins) · Smoking Boots (most smoking boots “wins”) Steel City Sigmar
