    They’re not MORTAL. Maybe I’m having reading issues? Can you point out which word reads “mortal”? Yes ... I know it’s not there either. I had to make a doublecheck myself. The restricions for The Artefacts is on the Artefact list, not in the wording section that was FAQ’d out.

    Can you recall the “core rules” that your opponent cited to indicate that? That was a thing in the prior edition... with the wording on the horrors that was added as an faq ... but that wording was stripped out with the change to sumoning in AoS v2.0. This would definitely be a “show me the rule” moment.

    Was your opponent playing with the updated rules for Sylvaneth Wyldwoods? Where if a unit is more than 1” in from the edge, or their shooting attack is from a model more than 1” away from their opponent on a Sylvaneth Wyldwood base that they have blocked LoS? (As long as neither unit has the FLY keyword.) I believe that technically means that second rank Kurnoth Hunters can’t shoot into a combat as they don’t have LoS.

    The difference is abilities (and 1/3 longer staying power). And the Chosen Reroll ability only gives benefits to other Slaves to Darkness units... So, 2 wounds instead of 3, no Reroll Of 1s vs Reroll Of 1s. No “Last attack on death” vs “Last attack on death”, Mortal Wounds “instead of regular damage” vs mortal wounds “in addition to regular damage”. No ability to gain rerolls for failed wounds and hit rolls, able to gain rerolls for failed wounds and hit rolls. And (most importantly) the Chosen kit is Finecast. (Boooooooo...) vs Plastic for the Skullreapers.

    That seriously sounds pretty aggressive, given that a Warscroll is not available in a Matched Play scenario only if it doesn’t have points. Amusingly enough, there are more Warscroll Battalions that lost their Matched play status in the most recent Stormcast Eternals Battletome update than we saw Compendium Units loose their Matched play status going into the 2018 GHB and AoS v2.0. And anything that doesn’t have Matched Play status is still entirely legal for Narrative and Open Play. And as a side note, if you’re playing a “Path to Glory” campaign it is (typically) entirely without points. You choose or roll for units and rewards on a table.

    They’re awesome sculpts... and they would be great ... unless you’re playing in a mainline GW store. Which doesn’t allow non-GW alternatives. Which is why alternatives for Flesh-Hounds is always awesome. The bargheist models may be too large for a 50mm base. Which is the newly designated Flesh-hound base size. (Their max size is indicated at over 65mm in length.)

    No worries! Take a read through on the other ones there is a whole bunch of changes... (it’s pretty crazy...) The Official Location: https://www.warhammer-community.com/faqs/ I’d actually recommend the one that @Antipodean7 from AosShorts.com compiled here: https://aosshorts.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/ALL-24-July-2018.pdf

    That was FAQ’d.This change was from June 2018. “Page 60 – Legions of Nagash Add: ‘The following units may be selected as part of a Grand Host of Nagash, Legion of Sacrament, Legion of Blood or Legion of Night army and gain the appropriate faction keyword: • Chainrasp Horde • Glaivewraith Stalkers • Grimghast Reapers • Guardian of Souls • Knight of Shrouds • Knight of Shrouds on Ethereal Steed • Lord Executioner • Spirit Torment’” Here’s the Direct link: https://whc-cdn.games-workshop.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/age_of_sigmar_legions_of_nagash_errata_en-1.pdf

    5 dead Pink Horrors would have given them enough to summon 10 blues. (It’s 2 points per dead pink... but they don’t get Fate Points for failed casts. And dead pinks + cast spells might have done it?) Seconded. I’d be interested in seeing those Flesh Hounds!

    Here’s the text update: “Page 97 – Multitudinous Host, Horrors Without Number Change the rules text to: ‘In each of your hero phases, add D3 models to each unit of Pink Horrors and/or Blue Horrors, and add 1 model to each unit of Brimstone Horrors in this battalion.’” Yeah ... at 8 units required you’re seeing a minimum of 8 models back (unless a unit gets wiped) but it’s still expensive. You'd need a combination of 12 Pink/24 Blue Horrors/~33ish Brimstones in a 1:2:3 ratio to get back the points.

    The updated July faq decreases the number of models returned even more than it did in the June update... at 200 points it’s ... of questionable value

    Like many vintage cars you’re not likely to get much support from the Manufacturer for a product that has been out of production for years. That 1984 DeLorean you own that is your pride and joy might be able to get minor spare parts... but an Original OEM epoxy Coated frame replacement can’t be had for love nor money from DMC. GW provides rules, they just don’t provide Matched Play points. So, Open Play and Narrative Play are still available options. They just wont be tournament legal anymore once they no longer have Matched Play Points. So to play, it requires more communication with your opponent than: “how many points do you want to play?”

    In short, no. In general, if it was “updated” in the Grand Alliance Books, or had a battletome release, then it’s not an issue. Most of the units that were in the original Warscroll Compendiums have been re-Warscrolled. (is that even a word?) And have an updated Warscroll to use. (It’s identified in the back of the Warscroll Compendium.) BCR, as an example, have their own AoS battletome that was released. The only units that are still in the Warscroll Compendiums and did not make a jump to the Grand Alliance “big Books” or get their own battletomes are for the most part no longer being made.

    They are completely usable at this time. And your analysis is on point. They're usable in a GA Order army as Battleline. The only folks who know what the timeframe for removal from Pitched Battle profiles will be haven’t told us.
