    Why do people find the Lifetakers underwhelming?

    AoS 2 - Daughters of Khaine Discussion

    I had my first DoK game last night (finally)! My army played the mission with the stepped deployment areas, I forget it's name, against one of my regular opponent's Idoneth Deepkin. It was brand new armies for both of us so mistakes were made, but it was an exceptionally close and fun game! My list was a rough match up for him. I didn't have many models which were good targets for his Thralls and I was running Khalibron Temple, so his 30 odd Reavers across the army had trouble doing much to my forces. He had: Eidolon of Magic (or whatever the caster one is called), 2 or 3 soulscryers, 3x 10 Namarti Reavers, 3x 10 Namarti Thralls, 2x 10 Gladeguard allies (I think - Aelves with shields and spears). I had: Medusa (Mindrazor, Mistress of Illusion, Shadow Stone), Medusa (Steed of Shadows), Hag (Catechism of Murder, Iron Circlet), Hag (Blessing of Khaine), Assassin as an ally. 10 Blood Sisters, 2x 5 Blood Sisters, 10 Khinerai Lifetakers, 5 Khinerai Lifetakers, 10 Khinerai Heartrenders, 5 Khinerai Heartrenders, 2x 5 Doomfire Warlocks, Shadow Patrol, Malevolent Maelstrom. All the teleporting I had going on was giving the Idoneth fits as I was able to get on objectives fast and dictate combats. I made some errors with placement of support characters so missed out on some buffs in key areas. I did an assassination run on the Eidolon which got him down to 2 wounds, but I couldn't seal the deal. That cost me the game in the end I think. He pushed hard on two objectives that I held, was able to tie up the game in the 3rd turn. By the 5th there was very little on the board, and he was able to squeak out one more point with the Eidolon jumping on my rear objective. Super close, fun, tactical game! I love this list. I may tweak the magic artifacts a little, but I think I could play it as is for quite a while and get a lot of mileage out of it.

    I have to tattoo, onto my arm, that mortal wounds don't generate depravity. That was something I missed in some of my theory-hammer. Not a dealbreaker at all, but easy to miss. It sure makes the Sorcerer Lord on Manticore less appealing (tho he's still a bad ass).

    30-50! Holy ******! That is fantastic. I was simulating a particular KoS build vs Nagash which generated an insane amount of points which was cool.

    For those of you who have played the army a ton (I've not, all theory hammer so far), what are your favorite ways to generate summoning points? What kind of totals do you expect in game?

    Invaders is the only one that has no traction for me. I love the Pretenders and Seekers ones and have a very tough time deciding between them. Invaders having 3 generals, but maybe with more CPs would be cool. I like the 12" boundary rule with them. Its interesting and very flavorful.

    Looking at the Slanneshi rules in GHB2018 more, I am hoping they don't change a ton. I really like them. Some modern Battletome additions like spells, additional artifacts, and maybe some new & updated units would be sweet, but I kind of hope that the summoning, traits, and allegiance ability don't shift too much. From a narrative perspective I could see the allegiance ability changing if Slannesh is found and released. I kind of like the imprisonment story, so I hope that sticks for a little. Its interesting and has a cool take on how that affects the rules with the 3 different play styles. Only time will tell!

    I like the theme of the Depraved Drove a lot. It reminds me of the cycle of inspiration and dissapointment many of us feel when starting a new army. After we’ve despoiled the plastic, we venture off, self-loathing, to find new little soldiers to slake out thirsts.

    You can download a PDF of the basic rules. Or use the App which also has all of the unit warscrolls (unit rules) in it. Battalions have criteria for what can be in them. You can run on in addition to other units in your army. If your entire army fits into a battalion, you could do that as well. For example, I like the Daughters of Khaine Shadow Patrol Battalion which requires 4 units with the ‘Khinerai’ keyword, and 2 units of Doomfire Warlocks. That is all that battalion can have, no more no less. Others are more flexible. After that I can add other units as I like to the army, outside of the battalion. Spells generally come from 5 places: basic spells (arcane bolt, mystic shield), unit spells (unique spell on the warscroll), faction spells (only in the specific battletome. Maggotkin of Nurgle has 9 spells to choose from, with some limitations, available to magic users from the Nurgle allegiance), Realm Spell from the BRB (not free version), and additional Realm Spells frome Arcane Sorcery. NOTE: don’t feel compelled to buy the BRB or Arcane Sorcery as you are just starting out. Wait until you decide you want to get into the game more. - GHB is an annual pub that comes out in summer. 2018 has some miles left on it especially as it’s so important for the new edition. - PDFs are available for a lotof stuff. The APP is the best place for up to date digital rules and warscrolls. Some folks print screenshots from phones (with modern screens) or tablets.

    I agree with your interpretation of the banner's rule. I just think that inside of the wide design space of AoS, people are given the opportunity to misinterpret that rule. The inconsistency aggravates this. Whatever, GW's rule writing style is well trodden ground. The Slannesh DP's special rules are pretty slick. Its disruptive and provides something that nothing else in the force does. I'm looking forward to trying one out.

    What’s the deal with Demon Princes? Its like laws of probibility bend around them or something. Is it because I refuse to spell Demon ‘Daemon’? The wording on the Hellstrider’s Rapturous Standard is fuzzy. ‘Any’ standard causing -1 would be clear. ‘Each’ standard causes -1 hit would also be clear. The way it’s currently worded seems like it could lead to annoying English/logic debates at the table. Maybe they’ll clarify it in the Battletome when that drops. I wonder if the Chaos Lord of Slannesh will change in his rules, because currently he’s AMAZING!
