  1. In general i like the tomes, many rules fit the fluff. Dirty Tricks for Kruelboyz look fun to play. Subaligiances are not restrictive anymore. As mentioned before, faction Battletactics and grand strategies could cause problems for competitive games. Internal balance in the Stormcast battletome is still off (hello dragons) , but hopefully gets better with the next changes in points.
  2. Thanks, couldn't see that on my phonescreen in the videos. So we could even play 9 Annihilators in Knights Excelsior! Overkill but fun.
  3. Do they have 2'' range? Otherwise i think we can get only 4 in combat, and 2 standing in second row for coherency
  4. if you look just at damage in combat, Retributors are a little better (about 15-16 wounds vs 13-14 wounds against a 4+ base save). But if you consinder the drop in and charge damage you can add at least about 4-5 dmg for annihilators. Also the only reliable way to get Rets into combat is via translocation prayer (if it really doenst get FAQed), Annihilators with their 7 inch scions and charge rerolls are a lot easier to use. So in summary i think that Rets are still too expensive, and i want to convert some into Annihilators with grand weapons.
  5. I think they get outclassed by xbowjudicators with their new 16'' range (or was it even 18?). More Models, Wound and Damage.
  6. Did anyone do the math on the Tempest Lords skill? reroll one dice of a charge, how relialbe makes this 9 inch Charge?
  7. Well, in the bigger picture i am happy with the battletome, sure some units are useless but at 76 warscrolls i didnt expect every unit to be viable in competive play. Dragon Army looks really strong. What is our best shooting unit now? 15 Judicators for 600p? 570p? Doubletapped they should delete most threats. Noticed that the skyboltbow doesn't do mortals on 6s, only the regulars. 6 Raptors for 480? Still strong but 12 w seems squishy. Castigators still just some point filling unit. Vigilors, not convinced by this hybrid unit. Ballistas with Lord Ordinator, less dmg than judis and raptors but more resilent. On the melee sight, paladins could be viable. Protectors really cool as @PJetski mentioned. Still wondering if they will faq teleport prayer.
  8. Knight Judicator does more dmg than a ballista, and brings some nice screen with him. But the leaked Raptors warscroll with 2/3+/2+/-2/2 looks still superior. Got to wait for points ofc. Chariot is suprisingly sturdy, so you can charge it in and can activate squishier units first in combat.
  9. How do play this list? Doesnt it lack some hammer unit? Or do the monsters do enough damage? My List i will try tomorrow: Allegiance: Nurgle - Host of Chaos: Munificent Wanderers - Grand Strategy: Prized Sorcery - Triumphs: Inspired Great Unclean One (350)* - General - Bile Blade & Doomsday Bell - Command Trait: One Last Gift - Artefact: The Witherstave - Lore of Virulence: Glorious Afflictions The Glottkin (395)** - Lore of Malignance: Blades of Putrefaction Sloppity Bilepiper Herald of Nurgle (130)* Lord of Afflictions (180)* - Artefact: Mucktalon 10 x Plaguebearers (110)** 10 x Plaguebearers (110)** 10 x Plaguebearers (110)** 3 x Plague Drones (195)** 3 x Plague Drones (195)** 3 x Plague Drones (195)* *Warlord **Battle Regiment Artefact Total: 1970 / 2000 Reinforced Units: 0 / 4 Allies: 0 / 400 Wounds: 122 Drops: 5 Could swap LoA for Daemonprince, but would lose the triumph? What do you generally think about LoA vs Daemonprince?
  10. In my experience BKs are only usefull with gutrot spume via deep strike. So far I have good results with MSU Plaguebearers and Drones.
  11. Tail attack also does wonders against full ko ships and other garrisons
  12. I guess Mr. Prime will get a 4+ ward, just like Miss Y. I am curious about 200p Judicators and what buffs they get, maybe a block of 15 becomes the new shootcast.
  13. On the Interaction between Cycle of the Storm and Blaze of Glory: Why not even combine it with a Hallowed Knights General?😅 Honestly, i dont think this is how it is supposed to work. In the Stormcast FAQ is written that Cycle of the Storm can stop a model from beeing slain. With the models right now this combo might not be overwhelmingly powerful, but just imagine some new multiwound drake with thunderarmor keyword...
  14. My Stormcast are happy, looking forward to next battletome. Vindictors, Sequitors, Liberators seem all reasonable for their price tag. My Nurgles have mixed feelings, Blightkings without rend battalion and 25p more could be finally outclassed by a full demon build. My Gloomspites. I have only squigs, and they don't care.
  15. I just want mount traits for Squigs!
