  1. I think he's touching on the toxicity of video/ pc gamer culture? Wargamer culture has its own dusting of the same ofc but its nothing like the scale of the other. At the same time, you'd probably play a lovely game with a video gamer and not know they'd call you all the names under the sun if you were instead playing Dota. Once you treat games just like other media and not an idolised thing, the Stockholm syndrome wears off. Games can still be cool and interesting experiences but Video game culture sucks I mean it was a great thing, a cool counter culture comfort, at one time. Now it's something less cool. It took a wrong turn. Just some fresh, half baked personal opinions for you early in the morning not at all rumour related ^^
  2. It's almost like they're TRYING to make fun of the faction
  3. Once per turn is both yours and opponents. Unless an ability is "in your turn". Shield wall is "You can use this command ability at the start of the combat phase" not "your" so it's something you can do in both. That's AFAIK anyway. I have yet to play OBR, just painting up.
  4. I like it, if I had the time to paint em I'd try an afflicition cyst like this. For turn 1 deepstrike in the mix
  5. that's neat, Ive never seen that before
  6. I'd prefer the latter but am unsure at the moment. I just assumed the worse case scenario
  7. I think they'd have allegiance abilities but wouldn't be in the battalion ofc Even so, pink horrors are quite nice, though they gain a lot from conflagration subfaction etc in tzeentch
  8. Interesting thing about that battalion is it looks to be super open ended. It's 7 CHAOS ASCENDANT PLAGUEBEARER units together with the heroes. Caps n' bold. So that's keyword right? That means you take 2-3 CHAOS ASCENDANT NURGLE DAEMON HEROES then you can choose from: Poxbringer (up to the 6 Hero max limit) Epidemimus (up to the 6 Hero max limit) Spoilpox Scrivener (up to the 6 Hero max limit) Sloppity Bilepiper (up to the 6 Hero max limit) Horticulus (up to the 6 Hero max limit) Plaguebearers (ofc) & Plaguedrones That's super cool imo - if it's meant to be keyword. So lists like this are possible: Allegiance: Chaos Ascendant Munificent Wanderers Leaders Great Unclean One (340) - Bile Blade & Doomsday Bell Spoilpox Scrivener Herald of Nurgle (90) Epidemius Tallyman of Nurgle (200) Poxbringer Herald of Nurgle (120) Sorcerer (120) Battleline 30 x Plaguebearers (320) 10 x Plaguebearers (120) 10 x Plaguebearers (120) Units 3 x Plague Drones (200) 3 x Plague Drones (200) Battalions Host of Corruption (160) I think it looks like 160 pts? Total: 1990 / 2000 Extra Command Points: 1 Allies: 0 / 400 Wounds: 119 It's much better and more flexible than 7 units of plaguebearers. If you keep Nurgle's allegiance it's super good. If not you can run this with Munificent Wanderers or Droning Guard right? That's still pretty hefty. I think there's a case to be made for giving up Nurgle's allegiance if it's what has to be done. To test these new synergies out. Plus the above is a 2 drop due to the sorcerer only. Which is just in there by habit. It's a super flexible 1 drop. Will have to check out this book and keep an eye out for the errata to come...
  9. I want plaguebearers to be good. Maybe this does the trick. My main pain now is though that they get bonuses at 30. I'd really rather take lots of min size units in the battalion.
  10. I want to say it is exciting because I love Deathriders but on Saturday a local tourney I was at had an OBR player place 1st with Nagash, Arkhan and 3x10 guard. I think that list with 25 deathriders above may have gained its core strength from a petrifex nagash. IE Take him in a petrifex OBR list and then 1100 points of whatever. That said, Im curious about how it plays. Id love to try it (with maybe Katakros, Arkhan and the deathriders - I like the new models).
  11. I played a small tourney yesterday and Petrifex won (albeit a Nagash, Arkhan and 3 x 10 Mortek list) - but I equalled or bettered the results (2 wins 1 loss) of 2 of the Petrifex Ossiarch players with my kooky SCE Starcast list. I don't think they are super OP and new releases need time to settle. At the same time, wouldn't it be better if they levelled out the subfactions internally? Like even if Petrifex gets a pass (much as Hagg nar did) when we build an Ossiarch list, wouldn't it be nice to want to try null myriad, a wild Ivory Host list, or even a super cool mounted stalliarch list? I'd propose they swap Bludgeon and Temper Fury (Ivory Host) for instance. Something like that. Its still entirely possible that they get nerfed though. It probably depends on which GW design employee (and how influential they are) gets murdered by them at a grand tournament in their own free time.
  12. My own thoughts are that anyone that down and negative couldn't possibly ignore the barbs thrown in return for their mad posts. You can't be so zen and yet driven to post depressing cities of sigmar laments at the same time. At least I think so. So alas I think it's a troll.
  13. I also can't help but think, long term, GW will realise that one aspect and weapon choice is like 4 times the damage of anything else and bring it all back down to where the falchions are an "elite" better choice again. That could take time though and I still plan on building my next 3 without.
  14. I heard it different, I heard GW are running with the popularity of GoT combined with another IP inspired by Tyrion and Teclis: My source says GW is making Tyrion the Devito one (ofc) and Teclis will be about double the size a la Arnie. Because Hysh is the realm of light, the sunglasses make perfect sense. Plus Tyrion is blind so double logic right there.
  15. Correct and on top of what @schwabbele says, it means that if something does 16 wounds to a drake (after saves etc) then it doesn't matter how many healing 6s are also made. Drake's dead yo.
  16. This is exactly how I feel with the lists I would take to a tournament too. You learn little stomping someone playing "just what they have" or something friendly.
  17. Holy ****** as a balding guy with glasses this hits home. F you Teclis! You're not the boss of me
  18. Aww now I feel bad. I was imagining the worst kind of player instead of being a happy mushroom. In my experience playing with a bunch of armies and lists (reasonably competitively or with "consenting amateur adults" lol) there is no "cheese" ppl get angered by. It's all a learning experience.
  19. The bracket that likes to take netlists but doesn't like to think about it. Sore losers
  20. Y'know, that got me thinking... What if they do a boxset that's just two different Stormhosts against each other each led by a stardrake? They could call it "Serpents Entwined" and have it loaded with innuendo. I'm 100% ready even if I've already got multiples of nearly every Stormhost unit and I'd have 5 Stardrakes after buying it.
  21. ...I'm too old to be messing with these stupid memes...
  22. You should pursue a career in politics
  23. Thanks for the info! I think left as I remembered from the original book it was a bit weird. But I got to thinking about the interesting places you could go with the remembered ppl being given form angle. It could have been wild! At the same time I did like the old aztec angle for the lizards and well, if dedicated seraphon players are happy good stuff. Were i to buy up some Seraphon I can always make mine old school new school One lizard remembered as many times as the models I field (in different stages of life), Jeff - best pal to general Hank the Slann
