    Thanks bud! Really appreciate the kind words. Truthfully, Shackles is the only reliable one. But if you are playing Chaos, then Swords are top notch. Maelstrom was my antimagic Spell but I couldn't even get it casted in 3 of my 5 games. Lord of Change shut me down and Arkhan the Black dispelled it super easy. I had two games where I couldnt even cast. Lol. I was really using them just to have some flexibility with three wizards. But if we don't have access to Arcane terrain it gets a lot harder to manage. There is a good chance the list changes after this tournament, particularly around using the Endless Spells. Jaws are such an amazing model. But is has cast of an 8 and only d3 mortals. Good luck with that. Savage Orc player at the tournament made good use of it, but his casters get bonuses and he had the giant rock monster to buff it even more. I will say though, paint it up and take to your local fun nights and let it rip. Just don't expect much of it.

    Really appreciate sir! Trying my best! I don't think I ever posted pictures of my army here before. So here is everything. Sorry if the quality is subpar. I'm terrible at picture taking.

    Awesome bud! Maybe you can post it on the main AoS section and see if we can generate some hype from the tournament. It went so damn well!

    Hey all! Finished 3-2 with 3-5 secondaries. Finished mid 20's out of 64. Also got Best Sportmanship and Coolest Army awards! Here is the video of my games in depth and my discussion of the tournament. Hope y'all enjoy!

    Off to a rough start. 1-2 going into tomorrow. Pulled a Stormcast gun line and a Tzeentch magic/shooty/summon list. Lost 18-17 to SCE and got some bad luck on three places of power when it mattered against Tzeentch. The Tzeentch list was pretty brutal.

    AoS 2 - Flesh-eater Courts Discussion

    Hey all! Extremely new to FEC. Wanting to start working on an army for 2019 competitive play. Only army I play is Gutbusters. So this is a big change for me. So I was trying to read through the book, the GHB, Malign Sorcery, and all the FAQs. It's kind of overwhelming for a new player to this army. And so I made a list. And I'm not sure if it's legal or not so please share advice and tips. The idea is that the GKoZD gets to summon 2 Varghulf. The two AGK summon their small units of Ghouls. Next turn, use the special command ability of the GKoZD to summon two more AGK and then summon two more ghoul units. Of course this all depends on Command Point management. That's why the Brooch is there. The FAQ states that Ghoul Patrol can swell past its original ranks. Does that mean I can use Varghulfs to help replenish those units as well? Or only the Ghast Coutier can do that? Bit confusing and don't want to build my army and realize I'm doing things wrong. Any feedback would be great guys, appreciate it!
  13. Don't know if this event ever got posted here on TGA. 64 player event that filled months ago. Just had couple of drop outs. Adding pic with info to get in contact with TO. Also have army breakdowns!

    Got my last game in before Wargames Con. Played my buddy and his Maggotkin one more time. His list was Glottkin w/ Blades, GUO w/ Bell, Gutrot w/ 10 Kings, 5 Kings, 40 Plague Rats, 30 Plague Bearers. We drew Battle for the Pass. He deployed first and gave me first turn. I made some major mistakes early and he capitalized. Went downhill from there. I go into detail in my video report play by play. I dug back into the game and then made a bonehead play that cost me the game. Can't just keep making mistakes after mistakes and expect to win. Pics are of the battle as it panned out.

    AoS 2 - Gutbusters Discussion

    Hey guys! Gonna do a quick recap of my game today. Also posted a video for it with some in depth discussion on playing mortal wound armies and getting ready for this next weekend! Played my good buddy's Clan Skyre army. Warlord guy, Thanquol, 2 warpfire cannons, two flame throwers, 2 units of 3 rats. Melee rats in reserve/other rats all flame throwers, Doomwheel, one unit of Jezzails, 2 units of Globadiers. I think I had that right. Playing Starstrike for mission. I win the roll and take side with arcane terrain. I finish deploying first and go second. Nothing much happens until I get the double in turn two. Objective drops mid table. I push a lot of my army forward. Left side fails all charges but the right side goes in. Kill his general and a unit of globadiers with Guts. My Ogors only charge 4" and barely get into the doomwheel. Only needed a 7" to get a triple charge. Le sad. Kill the doomwheel. Now I wait to see how he responds. Bottom of turn 2. He mortal wounds half my army off the board and takes the mid objective. He's avoiding my big unit of Ogors. My Tyrant dies to Warpflame. And he tunneled his melee rats to my right side where my Butchers are on arcane terrain. He rolls a 9" to get in and murder one. We are tied on points. Turn 3 he gets the double back and proceeds to kill more of my stuff. The other objectives fall mid on my side and right side on his. This is bad for him since I still have Ogors there from killing his Warlord. He takes the mid and my objective while doing some mortal wounds. Thanqoul is in a fight with my Ogors now and slowing grinding them down. He score some big points. Bottom of 3, I kill the rat Ogors and Thanqoul to clear the mid and get all the objectives. At this point all he has left is that unit of Rat Ogors way out of position and a warpfire cannon. We call it there. Super swingy and sweat inducing game. A lot of fun but holy cow I thought I was done when he got the double. Great practice with a great player who is always helping me get better! I posted a vid going in depth about the fight. Hope y'all don't mind me sharing it. If I'm just spamming up the thread, let me know and I'll stop.
