    Say, I have 30 Dread-spear/Bleak-sword/Shard models. Any suggestion on a configuration would be best for a unit of allies for DoK?

    6+ to hit vs. Natural 6

    I hope that we move towards greater consistency for how modifiers work. While I like the synergies that modifiers across multiple units provide, the clarity of some of the newer books is nice.

    Wrath and Rapture

    Yep. I started with the GW stuff when I was 15. I had both of the Realms of Chaos books, parental warnings and all. The notions of planetary destruction, virus bombs, and demonic tortures were ones that we all were aware of reading up on the background. As teenagers we could contextualize it pretty well. It was all part of an intense universe, but not one we wanted anymore to do with than be tourists to via our gaming and hobby.

    Why do people find the Lifetakers underwhelming?

    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.

    Ridiculous value for money; Slaanesh.

    I’m stealing the ****** outta your build for the Exalted chariot!

    I love the Chaos Sorcerer Lord. His spell is so good

    What does the Slanneshi beast battlion do?
