    AoS 2 - Idoneth Deepkin Discussion

    I hope you don’t think I’m awkward by keeping replying to this, but it is interesting I completely get what you’re saying (and I’m used to start vs end of phase abilities and all that , and how these would interact with normal combat order). But my point in my last post is, is High tide a start of phase ability? Its not outright stated as such in the rule’s wording, but the idoneth faq question I mentioned specifically uses it as an example of a start of phase ability. Still not sure how to copy and paste so I’ve screen capped it below. Look at the first sentence of the answer in particular. There’s two ways to interpret this really: 1. The High Tide ability is intended to happen at the start of the phase, and the idoneth faq should be considered confirmation of this, in which case it follows the rules in the same way as all other start of phase abilities. (The first half of the answer in that question is basically repeating the start of phase question that you posted) 2. High Tide isn’t a start of phase ability, the wording of the ability should be taken literally and the line in the faqs, saying it is start of phase, is a mistake. I think it’s 1. myself, as the faqs are meant to offer rules clarifications after all. But I admit I can imagine errors pop up in the faqs as well so it could be a genuine mistake. But again, hopefully you can see why I don’t think it’s completely clear at this point. This is largely theoretical for me, as even if I run into Gristlegore at any point, it’ll only actually matter on a single turn, so I’m probably splitting hairs anyway.

    AoS 2 - Idoneth Deepkin Discussion

    Disclaimer: you’re probably right, or will be proven to be in time, but just to throw a spanner in the works: the idoneth designers commentary describes high tide as a start of phase ability. not sure how to copy and paste from a pdf on phone, but wording is “if both units can use an ability at the start of a phase (such as the high tide allegiance ability)...” the full question in that faq directly relates to two idoneth armies armies fighting each other, but I would think that would still apply to other similar abilities? That would also suggest that, if another deepkin player charged me in high tide, they would attack with their units in their turn before I could use the eels discharge ability. Even if I'm wrong hopefully you can see why I’m confused on that, as I was thinking of the idoneth faq.

    Hmm. Good point- exact wording is “at the start of the combat phase” for the FEC ability. Although high tide trait says your units “fight before *any* other units, which might still supersede it? Probably one for an FAQ

    The player whose turn it is decides which order special abilities activate, so in your turn High tide will override savage strike (but he’ll get to go first in his turn 3). Hitting targets at precisely the right time is the whole MO of idoneth anyway, isn’t it?

    AoS 2 - Phoenix Temple Discussion

    I don’t see why it wouldn’t? They're cast just like any other spell

    The Rumour Thread

    Late to the discussion, but the idoneth ability will usually be on units that are more powerful than the FEC ones. +1 attack on a morrsarr’s weapons hurts more than +2/3 attacks on a ghoul and so on, and even the stronger FEC units usually have a worse hit roll. Speaking as an idoneth player with no interest in collecting FEC it doesn’t seem so very bad to me (undoubtedly strong but not broken). time will tell though I guess.

    I spy some Bretonnian heraldry on the FOC’s endless spell fence thing. Well, the fleur di lis anyway.

    The Painting Contract - January 2019

    A bit rushed but managed to get a medusa painted up this weekend.

    The Painting Contract - January 2019

    She be done. Slow progress as I’ve bern painting much less recently (I blame red dead redemption 2). Doubt I’ll get the medusa finished in January so that will have to roll over to Feb I think. Bonus pic of Dain as some of the other few models I painted in January.

    Scrollbuilder points outdated

    Not 100% sure but weren’t these changes from the beasts of chaos battletome, and wrath and rapture? I seem to remember skyfires going down a bit in price when BOC came along

    They already did. In airships. Results were... mixed. 😛

    AoS 2 - Fyreslayers Discussion

    It’s based on the number of models at the start of the phase

    The Painting Contract - January 2019

    From a few days ago but forgot to share- a rare (for me) conversion to round off my trio of sorceresses for my darklings. painting is underway although I’ve botched the skin tone a little. I’ll be sure to share the end result when it’s done, hopefully at the weekend

    Warscroll Battalion

    Some mega battalions list multiples of the same battalion as part of their requirements (the idoneth one for example) so I would say yes.

    Disheartened about the current stance on Elves

    If you use your spearmen and archers as “counts as” dreadspears and glade guard you can still put together a serviceable army. You’ll only have the order allegiance (although the artefacts are decent) and synergy will be a bit all over the place, but with a bit of thought in army selection and deployment it can work. I doubt it would hold up in an ultra competitive environment, but if it’s for local club/flgs play you should get by just fine- my mixed aelf army does ok
