    Any Tipps/Advice for Eel-free Idoneth?

    Lies, damned lies, and statistics. One of my favourite quotes (hence my reply) None of that actually relates to in game experiences or situations. Need a 10 models to run 14 to claim an objective? Eels stuck in combat with a guy on 1 wound, need a screen to block off your opponents move? Mathshammer and tables dont tell you any of these situations, plus many many more. So much focus on sub-optimal, etc etc. Honestly the worst part of the game for me. Get some folks enjoy it, power to you but rem, thats not even close to the game as a whole. No substitute for playing games with models and using them on the table. I put reavers in my list because they are my fav models in the range, had every expectation of them really not contributing. I would say in at least 25% of my games they have made a significant contribution, in some role or another. They actually won me my round 4 matchup at EGGS this year.

    Reavers vs Nighthaunts are great, rend is unimportant, just make them roll saves.

    Quick question regarding realm rules.

    That is correct, you choose where your army hails from and pick artifacts from there, the realm is selected before the battle and spells/traits apply from that realm

    Terrain usage and placement at tournaments

    Def a whole different gaming culture here in the UK I think.

    Terrain usage and placement at tournaments

    I do find this whole discussion a bit weird tbh. Having played the UK tournament scene from the start, this just seems 'normal'. SCGT has always had bring your own terrain, historiclaly the biggest event on the Calendar. (before @Ben says it, yep Blood and Glory is gonna be fighting hard and maybe eclipsing them) Guys have brought whole display boards etc to play on, Steve Footes Endless Deserts was a joy. Honestly if someone turned up trying to exploit anything with scenery etc the UK TO's are so good it would just be stopped ASAP, before it became a 'thing'. Custom terrain for your army should def be encouraged, it just enhances the appearance so much. Its just not how AOS plays in the UK, the community is so good that people don't even try to push the boundries with stuff like that.

    AoS 2 - Spiderfang Grots Discussion

    Yep that chaff is 100% needed, my spiders all died before they could do any damage at the weekend

    AoS 2 - Spiderfang Grots Discussion

    I won a trophy! ....for last place But got second place in best painted, which I am super chuffed about. Honestly, pure spiderfang is increadibly hard work, my list is not even close to optimal, which makes it even harder. Played nurgle with 60 PB twice, which is just an uphill struggle. Think If i wrote a competative Spiderfang its a 2/3 wins army, which is good and my level of play, but it wont run with the big boys without some luck. But it is one of the most fun armies I have ever played so would 100% recommend them to anyone thinking about it. Priority in the last game I might have won that though. Spiderfang seem more a drop in contingent in mixed destruction to be competative. 20, plus boss, plus arachnarok is a super killy combo. Add in chaff, artillery and another hitty unit and you have a solid list imo.

    AoS 2 - Spiderfang Grots Discussion

    Yes and a 4 up with command ability. Still doesn't help that much. Had 5 great games at blackout, but if you are gonna run more than 2 Arachnaroks, good luck, you will need it.

    AoS 2 - Spiderfang Grots Discussion

    No if you get a 6 or more to hit, not unmodified 6 so bonus's to hit help

    Age of Sigmar and TERRAIN

    The whole AOS vibe for the last 3 years has been the look and feel, its a huge part of why I play, and it hasnt had any major effect imo in that time. With realm rules, endless spells etc, terrain is fine as it is. Folks are out there having fun, let them get on with it, no need to change what isnt broken.
