    AoS 2 - Blades of Khorne Discussion

    I been running a Gore Pilgrims, 30 Bloodletters and Wrath Bloodthirster and Bloodstoker to buff them. Changed the last points around a bit, couple of Khorgoraths, Skullreapers to get max out of Killing Frenzy if Bloodletters go down early. I'm getting ready to go to my first turnament in the new year and Bloodletters can no longer do the job I build my list around. So trying to decide what to go for. Lots of mentions of Council of Blood, I could do Wrath, Insensate Rage (with Ghyrstrike) and Skarbrand and Gore Pilgrims. 2 drops is nice, but not sure how you actually make it work against big units. Bloodthirster don't hit that hard and die easy. I was wondering if this list could work: Allegiance: ChaosMortal Realm: UlguLeadersWrath Of Khorne Bloodthirster (320)- General- Trait: Immense Power - Artefact: Mark of the slayer Daemon Prince of Khorne (160)- Artefact: Sword of Judgement Bloodsecrator (140)Slaughterpriest (100)- Blood Blessing: Killing FrenzySlaughterpriest (100)- Blood Blessing: Bronzed FleshSlaughterpriest with Hackblade and Wrathhammer (100)- Blood Blessing: Bronzed FleshBattleline10 x Blood Warriors (200)- Goreaxe & Gorefist- 1x Goreglaives10 x Bloodreavers (70)- Reaver Blades10 x Blood Warriors (200)- Goreaxes- 1x GoreglaivesUnits5 x Skullreapers (170)- Daemonblades5 x Wrathmongers (180)BattalionsGore Pilgrims (200)Total: 1940 / 2000Extra Command Points: 2Allies: 0 / 400Wounds: 125 2x10 Blood Warrriors with Bronzed Flesh and backed up with Skullreapers and Wrathmongers against hordes. 2 big and fast monsters with artifacts for those battleplans. Wrathmongers and Deamon Prince with Sword of Judgement against monster list. 3 Slaughterpriest with rerolls for mortal wounds or pulling of objectives. Wrath of Khorne Bloodthirster maybe with Doppelganger Cloak instead so I can trow it forward, most games only really get a use out of it a couple of times anyway, so not sure nerf makes me drop it.

    From new FAQ: Q: Some old abilities refer to a roll of 6. What does this mean exactly? A: If an ability refers to a roll of 6 (rather than a roll of 6+ or a roll of 6 or more), it means a roll of 6 after rerolls but before any modifiers are applied. I had some arguements over this since AoS1 where it counted as 6+. Does it make Crimson Crown useless or can still be worth it?

    Just looking at them I have to agree, but the 10 I bring when playing Gore Pilgrims end up doing really well so offen I'm considering buying 10 more.

    Never run into anyone who didn't do both. You do WoK, Bloodstoker and run+charge Bloodletters, 1 of the really nasty combos Khorne has.

    What are your pet peeves at the gaming table?

    Even in casual games having your opponent take more than a hour per turn can get a bit anoying

    You play with whatever rules are decided, but that just wierd. Don't think GW ever made a rule like that, would think it should be 6+ or natural 6.

    I mostly play with both Bloodstoker and 1-2 Khorgorath, more than Mighty Lord of Khorne.

    Saw 2 Khorne lists at 4 and 15 at Facehammer, anyone know what lists?

    I want to play a vampire army but I don’t know how.

    5 man units and yes he gives reroll with VLoZD. Not sure how reliably they are, but its 1 more thing that hits pretty hard and can't be ignored. If you are not going horde I think you need speed and to hit hard and have several things that can do it. I know this is not what people think is best right now, but look a the Flesh-easter Court and Khorne armies that came top 10 at Nova. Others might have seen it coming, but I was surpriced by people doing well with monster lists. Talking about lists tends to get down to a couple of options we talk about and everything else gets ignored. Maybe the Blood Knights player I been up against just rolls above average against me and normaly does worse. But I think we are offen way to fast writing of units when we talk about them if they are not great. Some units are not super just looking at price and warscroll, but can be made work depending on play style in specific lists. Could totally be wrong about Blood Knights being 1 of those, but I clearly do not think so.

    Sure, I just disagree about how bad they are. I would only call them 20 maybe 40 points to expensive compared to your 80. Which to me is the difference between them sucking so bad you can't use them, and can work if you want a vampire themed army and have a plan for how to use them.

    I think people are overdoing Blood Knights suck. Might not be the thing to go for if you want to play top tables at turnaments, but thats not all there is. Guy I play local does Legion of Blood with Blood Knights and I become kinda scared of them. Last game 1 unit Bloodknights deleted 10 Bloodwarrriors on charge, then got killed by my Bloodthirster and a second unit of Bloodknights deleted him on charge. Need to get charge of with them, but then they are able to kill their own worth in points in 1 turn. Just having 1 unit behind screens should make your opponent think.
  12. Just looking at the pictures I would think the army is ok painted and would be happy to play that. The problem might be with a painting rubric like above. Its a checklist, 2 armies with about same painting skill might get very different points. But if you plan to be on top tables at a turnament it also gives you a list of what you need to do to get max points. Most painting rubric's I have seen are capped like above. So you don't need to do everything to get max points. So might be 25 points to fight for, but 17+ gets you max painting and should be possible for most. But just showing up with a army you think is tabletop standard without being prepared might totally miss on the rubric. Same kind of bases might have given 1 more there and helped push for 2 more on overall appearance. Stuff where you might not really say the army is better painted, but if painting is part of overall score need to treat it like part of the turnament.

    Tournament Sportsmanship: Goals, Methods

    Someone was asking if this would be considered cheating. For me yeah. Would consider it fair to trow that person out. Contacting TO's of other events that person goes to and tell them to watch out for the cheater would also be fair.
  14. Not being told why seems wrong. I'm fine with painting being part of the overall score, but there should be clear guidelines and you should be told why you didn't get full painting points, so you can change stuff for next time. I feel like most of painting points should be a checklist kinda thing, maybe with a little bonus on top for the best painted. I want to play beautiful armies and painting being part of the score helps with that. But trying, as in done some shading, highlighting, basing even if not best painted should get you close to max.
