  1. Don't ever try to kill Gotrek. He can't be teleported, so he can ONLY move/ run/ charge– just avoid him or slow him down. Only use small, cheap chaff units on him, and NEVER charge him, just set up a semi-circle or line 3" in front of him that he'll either have to move around or charge. He'll WIPE the unit, but he'll have made no more than 3-4 inches of forward progress and killed a 60-70 point unit. Meanwhile, you're focusing on the rest of his army and capturing objectives. But, as I've said before, it's STILL a bad play experience because playing a game of "haha now you can't use your expensive toy" isn't really much fun either. :/
  2. It doesn't seem like the available factions are correct (under Death; I haven't checked the other GAs). For example– Selecting "Grand Host of Nagash" as the allegiance, should unlock the factions Legions of Nagash, Flesh-eater Courts, and Nighthaunt (the latter two are allies), but it only unlocks Legions of Nagash and Flesh-eater Courts. Edit: It's fixed now! Thanks!
  3. One other thing to note-- I just set up a battlefield to play this out, and 22" x 30" is really small. I don't anticipate the units being more than 12" away for very long...
  4. I'm going to try out the following replacements for the Troggoths: x1 Hell Pit Abomination x4 Rat Ogors (all equipped with Warpfire Guns) x3 Stormfiends (Randomly roll the weapon option for each model, ignoring the normal unit limitations) And as Kramer suggested, The Boneripper without Thanquol for the Troggboss. Equip him with 2 Warpfire Projectors & 2 Warpfire Braziers. Ignore the abilities Staff of the Horned Rat, Warpstone Addiction, Magic, and the Command Ability, but keep the Warp Amulet ability to use whenever "Regeneration" comes up in the action phase. Otherwise, keep all the action tables & results the same. I think that the fact that the units have more wounds than the Troggoths, that will make up for the lack of regeneration. And the Boneripper has more wounds and its limited regeneration ability.
  5. Without shooting, what if for the "FAR" table you use the following results: Dumbstruck- same Hold- Make a normal 'run' move with the unit. Advance- Make a normal 'non-running' move and then attempt to charge with the unit. If that gets them into combat too quickly, how about just treating all the "Hold" results as normal moves without running, and the "Advance" results as normal moves that can run (and no charging in either case)? Now that I think about it, this might be the simpler option and retain the principle of the enemy not charging if they began their turn outside of 12", but still avoid the units standing around doing nothing for too long.
  6. Don't forget that there are A LOT of command abilities that have been updated in the FAQ/ Errata to clarify that a unit cannot benefit from it more than once per turn (ie: no stacking). It might not be stated in the rules text printed on the warscroll or in the battletome, so check the FAQ on the Warhammer Community page to see if there has been an update.
  7. This concept of not treating allies as factions would also allow some allegiances to ally in specific units, because each unit's NAME is a keyword. So you could let an allegiance take a particular unit without taking that unit's entire "faction." --The perfect example is adding FELL BATS and BAT SWARMS to the list of Flesh-eater Courts allies. Then they could ally in units of bats (which would still be appropriately thematic) without allowing anything else from the SOULBLIGHT "faction."
  8. GW really just needs to stop using the term "faction" altogether. The only defining terms should be "allegiance" and "keyword." The army has an "allegiance" and you're not allying in units from a different "faction," you're allying in units with a specific "keyword." Done and done. A faction is not really a thing anyway; it's just the units that have that particular keyword. Then, GW needs to go through and add into each battletome's errata an allegiance(s) for every warscroll battalion that doesn't have one. If they can have a list of the base size for every unit in the game, they can have a list of every warscroll battalion's allegiance. And then, going forward, do not release a book unless every battalion in it has its allegiance listed. Make it part of the proof-reading process.
  9. Ditto. The unit leader also has a different weapon, which means separating the leader AND the greatsword into separate dice pools from the main unit's attacks.
  10. I had considered re-purposing some, but the traditional metal wraiths don't really have the stature of a Grimghast. It would be neat to see an "Oldhammer" version of a Nighthaunt army, made with all the old Ghost models, classic wraiths & banshees and such. Thank you!
  11. Wraiths used to be fielded as units, and Banshees used to be unit champions for wraiths, AND could be individual 95pt "Hero" level characters. During the End Times, Heroes could make up 50% of your army, so I tried out a "screamer" list with 10 Banshees. And then I added three more meticulously converted banshees for AoS. I... I have way too many Banshees. Somebody please help me.
