    AoS 2 - Stormcast Eternals Discussion

    Alright you technically can but it's pointless. Units with HAMMERS OF SIGMAR can't gain another stormhost keyword, and you can't use the Anvils command ability on anything but ANVILS units, so there is no reason to mix stormhosts like that.

    The Rumour Thread

    With the Beasts of Chaos battletome I think it's fair to assume that every faction that got an article during the pre-Soul Wars launch is getting a Beasts of Chaos-style battletome (or more) at some point. https://www.warhammer-community.com/2018/06/05/faction-focus-index/

    AoS 2 - Stormcast Eternals Discussion

    You can't use Gavriels command ability and the Anvils command ability in the same list. Deep strike charge (9" = 28%) is not reliable. Translocation (66%) and Cogs (58%) are not reliable tools. None of them let you get melee range during the hero phase (which is when you activate Anvils CA) so you need to survive that melee phase and then hope for a double turn... it's just a terrible strategy. Anvils should be used on shooting units to (almost) guarantee value.

    The "Anvilstrike" list is 12 Longstrikes shooting twice per turn. Trying to use the Anvils CA on Evocators is a waste, its too easy to play around a slow melee unit. Hurricanes short range, poor accuracy, and low rend makes them a worse choice for the command ability than Longstrikes.

    Battletomes, a bygone era?

    I like having physical copies of my rules. Digital just isnt the same.

    AoS 2 - Seraphon Discussion

    Firelance generally isn't worth running unless you are going to build it into Dracothions Tail to deep strike half your army. Also, 2x Bastiladon isn't as good as Stegadon + Bastiladon. Use those extra points to upgrade the Troglodon into an Engine of the Gods.

    AoS 2 - Stormcast Eternals Discussion

    Im glad other people are starting to see the huge flaws with blobs of 20 sequitors This is why Im not a big fan of Sequitors: In groups of 5 they die too quick to be worth their points. Liberators make a better screening unit In groups of 20 they just get flanked and cant pile in. In units of 15 you should just pay 40 points and run 20 instead Not worth running unless they're battleline, and the only good Arcanums are the LAGC and the LAD (usually isnt worth using outside of Dracoline lists). If you make a Stardrake your general for Staunch Defender you dont run Sequitors. It feels like units of 10 is the sweet spot. It gives you enough damage and durability without sacrificing mobility or opening yourself to crippling flank maneuvers. I think 10 Sequitors + 5 Judicators/6 Castigators is a better use of 400 points than 20 Sequitors.

    Endless spells: your thoughts?

    The threat of instant death (or 2d6 mortal wounds) to a huge blob of models and its huge base make it an exceptional area denial tool. Slow armies like LON can drop it on an objective and fight over the others. Purple Sun can't just be slamjammed into every list because it casts on an 8, which is not reliable at all. However some armies like Legion of Sacrament, Nighthaunt, and Seraphon have access to some significant casting bonuses that can make it a lot easier to get the Purple Sun into play. My favourite part of using the Purple Sun is that you need a 9 to dispel it, and there is no way to gain bonuses on that dispel. People will throw away multiple casts trying to dispel the purple sun only to have you recast it the next turn, or they wont bother at all and you keep your floating purple death orb.

    Why not? You can easily squeeze in a LAGC. You dont want Gavriel or Vandus as your general anyway since they cant take a Command trait.

    Endless spells: your thoughts?

    My opinions on endess spells in Matched Play: Great - Lots of usage in many different lists, easy to use Aethervoid Pendulum, Chronomatic Cogs, Geminids of Ugh-Gyish, Everblaze Comet, Mortalis Terminexus Good - Situational but still powerful Balewind Vortex, Purple Sun of Shyish, Quicksilver Swords, Umbral Spellportal, Okay - Situational but not very powerful, difficult to use properly, or outclassed by other spells, or just a little too expensive Emerald Lifeswarm, Prismatic Palisade, Ravenak's Gnashing Jaws, The Burning Head, Soulsnare Shackles, CelestianVortex, Dais Arcanum, Shyish Reaper Bad - Not very good, or hard to make it work Malevolent Maelstrom, Suffocating Gravetide, Vault of Souls My favourite way of using the Endless Spells is open play games where ever wizard knows how to cast every spell.
  14. Matched Play is a different ruleset layered on top of the basic "narrative" gameplay. The reason it uses these additional rules is so that matched play can be balanced without compromising the narrative gameplay. There is no reason that it can't be a more balanced game, and people obviously want that because AOS was struggling to stay alive before they introduced matched play. It's a huge draw for a lot of people. Matched Play cannot be dismissed as something made just for "a minority" of players, that is a patently disingenuous argument.
  15. What's wrong with people wanting a better product? Beasts of Chaos battletome looks like a ton of fun thematic rules that are also strong on the table (so far).
