    Let's Chat: Mollog's Mob

    Have you ever wanted a warband with just one fighter? https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/01/14/14th-jan-warband-focus-mollogs-mobgw-homepage-post-1/

    New ban/restricted list for UW

    These changes are a massive boost to aggro Mollog and aggro Thorns. Cover Ground is going to see a lot more play.

    AoS 2 - Stormcast Eternals Discussion

    The core is what you were proposing a few months back (9 LS + 10 Evo) but the key differences are how you support those units. I think the Geminids are probably the best spell since they have a huge threat range (~26") can give melee units -1 attack and shooting units -1 hit, and do D3 mortal wounds to a lot of enemy units. Those debuffs are the best kind of insurance policy for when you lose the priority roll. I put the Quicksilver Swords in because I had 20 points left over, but I found it came back to hurt me more than once. I think you're right that the shackles would be a better choice, especially since they can be used to block choke points.

    I'm surprised they havent made a DOK start collecting yet

    It's definitely one of the best ones. I think the other top lists are Astral Templars (Ballista + Evocators) and Celestial Vindicators (6x Dracolines) though I need to experiment more with the latter. I also think a Dracoth list is probably competitive but I haven't put the pieces together yet. Have you guys seen the Shadowhammer Compact list? It's 15-20 Judicators and 20 Heartrenders shooting twice per turn. It's a disgusting amount of shooting damage.

    AoS 2 - Stormcast Eternals Discussion

    Went to a tournament yesterday that had a lot of people practicing for Adepticon and summer GTs. I went 3-0 and took first place with this dual threat Anvilstrike list. Played against Fyreslayers, Slaanesh (Archaon + Mammoth 2x double pile-in), and Skaven (Thanquol + 2x WLC + Skreetch + Bell). Tabled each opponent on turn 2, only lost 300 points of models over 3 games. Insights: 2x Dispel Scroll is brutal. Veritant doesn't need to be the general. Longstrike + Evocator is an amazing combination. We all know how good shooting twice with Longstrikes can be, but 10x Evocators attacking in the hero phase then run + rerollable charge into a second attack is even more devastating, especially when backed by Longstrike shooting The Longstrikes force the opponent to come to me, then the Evocators clean up. If my opponent chooses to focus the Evocators then the Longstrikes win the game for me, and vise-versa. The list seems pretty much perfect; not sure where to make improvements. Anvils-Feb2019.pdf

    Based on the box art, Stormvault is just the sprues for Farstriders and Cursebreakers from Underworlds.

    I really hope they play like additional objectives that each team can try to score, and not something silly like "randomly cast Shardgale"...

    The Rumour Thread

    The Dreadblade Harrows were a strange one. My best guess is that they were meant to be a cavalry unit but they ran out of time after developing the proof of concept and had to shoehorn it into the rules somehow so they made them into Heroes.

    Dreadfane

    So those red cards... are they just for Dreadfane, or are they a new concept being introduced like Lethal hexes in season 1? Also worth mentioning is that despite being larger than the standard boards, the board has objectives placed too close to each other... Which other existing model kits could be turned into warbands? Crawlocke, Glaivewraiths, and the Castigators come to mind.

    The Rumour Thread

    I think that has been the theory for a long time. Why does the Castigator kit include a gryph hound? Soul Wars felt like it was pushed out of development and into production 3 months too soon.

    The Rumour Thread

    When the Soul Wars ETB kits were first revealed everyone was convinced they were warbands for Underworlds. Turns out they were wrong. But now it turns out they were right. I really like the idea of turning existing kits into new warbands - I hope they do more of this kind of thing in the future. I believe this is the case as well.

    Why are you using Gavriel Sureheart if you're not using the Hammers of Sigmar stormhost?

    Examining The Stormcast in Light of New and Pending Releases

    Very few Stormcast units are overperforming, but those units are basically strictly better than their alternatives so people are being funneled into using the same units over and over which creates the perception that they are overpowered. I think the Ballista and Evocators are too cheap, while almost every Strike and Extremis unit is too expensive for what they do. Ideally they could print an errata for some units that are lacking purpose (Castigators, Exorcist, arguably Liberators, and more) but I think simple changes to pitched battle profiles in GHB2019 could result in massive improvements. Here's the changes I would make: Finally, I think one of the biggest problems is that Stormcast battalions are mostly terrible. Unusable battalions combined with Stormhosts forcing artifact choices means there is very little decision making when it comes to artifacts and command traits, which further funnels people in the same direction when building lists. I think the biggest contributor to that is how many underperforming units are in the Stormcast battletome - shaking up the point costs like this could see the battalions become viable options.

    Ban & Restricted v2

    Do you think any more cards should be added to the Banned/Restricted lists? Should any cards be taken off the Banned/Restricted list? Although we don't have any cards on the same power level as Great Concussion, I have noticed the meta is settling around some specific cards that appear in nearly every deck. I have won three 16+ player events so far since Nightvault launched, and here's my shortlist of cards I think should be Banned or Restricted: Banned Ready for Action - This card is in every deck. I think this card is similar in power to Time Trap, which also has a (well deserved) spot on the Banned list. Extreme Flank - It's just too easy to score, worth too much glory, and it encourages passive play. Tome of Offerings - A Destiny to Meet is Restricted, but this card is on a whole other level. It heavily favours specific warbands using it (warbands that focus on a single fighter) and gains far more value against warbands with lots of fighters (Skeletons, Skaven, Nighthaunt, Gitz). Why should it be banned rather than restricted? In a regular game this is a problem, but this is a HUGE problem in a tournament setting where Glory is used as a tiebreaker. Players that match against Gitz every round can generate a tremendous glory advantage over somebody that matches with Cursebreakers every round. Restricted Harness the Storm - This is probably the single best objective in the game, and it's a big reason why Cursebreakers are so strong right now Inspiration Strikes Hidden Paths Deathly Fortitude and/or Sudden Growth Superior Tactician - Is this card imbalanced or is it just too popular? Supremacy - This is a controversial choice, but if Our Only Way Out is worth running at 2 glory, I think that makes Supremacy too powerful by definition. I think the power of this card is forcing the game into an aggressive meta, because if you can't stop Supremacy swings then you just can't win. In my opinion this card should not be 3 glory and scorable in turn 1 - making it Restricted is a better solution than printing an Errata for a core set card.

    More likely it's full of people that claim to be NDA breakers.

    We have good command abilities, but they are unfortunately locked behind Stormhosts that force you to take awful command traits and artifacts. Building lists for Stormcast is really annoying.

    AoS 2 - Stormcast Eternals Discussion

    I think without the Ignax's Scales you will die pretty quickly to mortal wounds. The reason the Stardrake works is because it's really hard for most lists to do 16 mortal wounds in 1-2 rounds, and just about impossible to do ~32 mw required to get through Ignax. Doing 7 is a lot more manageable and achievable for most lists. The Stardrake also has a much larger base and a much larger threat range - I can see people just ignoring an LCOD with this setup. On a side note, I really wish the LCODracoth had a different command ability. It seems like he has no purpose - I would always rather have a Dracothian Guard unit instead.

    All summoning armies are based on their heroes (usually their general) so you just need to take them out before they add too many models to the table. Victory goes to the swift. Specifically against Legions of Nagash you should focus on putting units on top of their graveyards - they can't put a unit down within 9" of an enemy, so if you sit on the graveyard they can't respawn there.

    AoS 2 - Stormcast Eternals Discussion

    When playing Anvilstrike I find Lightning Storm to be mostly pointless since anything at that range will be stuck in combat with Aetherwings for a turn before they get shot off the table. Outside of 12" the Relictor has no impact on the table - I would much rather have another 30" unbind and a gryph hound. Trading the Skinks + Relictor for Veritant + Aetherwings seems like an upgrade to me.

    AoS 2 - Stormcast Eternals Discussion

    If you can spare the 20 points swap your Relictor to a Veritant Not only do you get a gryph hound, but you also get better melee attacks, an extra wound, and an unbind (potentially at +3)

    Reveals aren't rumours, though... Quite the conundrum.
