    AoS 2 - Nighthaunt Discussion

    Honestly, nighthaunt have multiple viable builds. Most people considered the UK masters list very atypical although I expect to see copycats after this. Common points of successful nighthaunt lists IMHO are making good use of synergies between units and taking one or two battalions.

    AoS 2 - Beastclaw Raiders Discussion

    Search yeti on the Reaper miniatures site. They have several plastic Bones series models that would work fine as yetis.

    Also helps censer bearers if they are not near monks

    AoS 2 - Clan Skyre Discussion

    I think Skyre is a kind of Icelandic yogurt.

    AoS 2 - Sylvaneth Discussion

    I want wildwoods to be limited to the one you set up at the beginning and for the army to change accordingly to maintain balance. I refuse to spam woods all over. I know I guy who owns 18 woods just to play this army in case he needs that many in a game. The woods are annoying as hell to play against and hardly anyone plays them right with the trees actually in place. People just run empty bases and charge giant stuff right though them without needing to move around/over the trees. Sylvaneth were the first army I played in AOS but I haven't touched them in awhile because of the wildwood rules.

    AoS 2 - Nighthaunt Discussion

    1. The Mortis engine is unfortunately not an ally option for nighthaunt. 2. I run Kurdos in my 2k list. I think he, along with the other non-buff centric characters like cairn wraiths etc. get left out of many lists in favor of support characters. Nighthaunt lists tend to be character heavy as is. That isn’t to say those characters aren’t good, it is just a preference thing.

    AoS 2 - Clan Skyre Discussion

    The new battle tome includes "Nurgle" as ally option for an army with the Pestilens allegiance. I am not talking about the old battle tome. If the "all units must be clan X" includes your 1/4 ally points it prevents Pestilense from being able to take allies, which they are clearly supposed to be able to take since it is spelled out in the battle tome that they have Nurgle as an ally. My guess is that this will be resolved either day one with the designers commentary or soon thereafter with an FAQ/Errata. The FEC battle tome has a similar head scratcher as it has an item which is Courtier only that allows courtiers to use a command ability "on their warscroll" without spending a command point...trouble is that no courtiers have a command ability on their war scroll. On the other hand, all FEC characters share the feeding frenzy command ability so it is clear that the intent of the item is to allow a courtier to use feeding frenzy without spending a command point. A similar editorial mix up happened when GHB 2018 came out with incorrect point values for a handful of Idoneth Deepkin units and a more recent one was in the Gloomspite Gets book where no # of models was listed for how many fanatics you get in Path to Glory.

    AoS 2 - Clan Skyre Discussion

    Why have Nurgle as an ally listed for clan Pestilens if they can’t legally take nurgle allies? I assume this will get faq

    I would assume so otherwise the item does nothing

    AoS 2 - Clan Skyre Discussion

    That would prevent clan Pestilens from being able to take Nurgle allies though since by taking allies they would lose all battle line options. Pestilens clearly is at least intended to have Nurgle as an ally. Also why else list the faction as an ally option with itself? No other Battletome or allegiance does so, I know gits doesn’t for a recent example.

    AoS 2 - Flesh-eater Courts Discussion

    Bill beat Andrew in the final top 8 showdown match at LVO. FEC officially just won the largest AOS event in US even without the new battletome. Times are looking good to be a ghouly ghoul.

    AoS 2 - Sylvaneth Discussion

    My guess would be small sample size and differences between US and UK unit preferences. I know one of the Sylvaneth players is using a list he has been messing around with for a long time in AOS and is running what he has the most experience and practice with.

    How Long Have You Been in the Hobby?

    Honestly I hear more complaining from people who switched to AOS from 40k rather than preexisting WHFB players in real life at least, don't know about on this forum. The vast majority of WHFB players that I know either like AOS and play it, or simply quit playing Warhammer when AOS came out to focus on other things like MMOs, Malifaux, etc.

    AoS 2 - Clan Verminus / Skaven Discussion

    As someone who played fantasy competitively in 8th edition I have no problem with the storm fiend changes. Many many people ran units all kitted out in the same way in late 8th edition fantasy (with one tunneler) and they were pretty broken giving the unit a bad reputation in many circles, and giving a bad reputation to people running the unit. It is also in line with changes to other units that they have made. They want to make it so that every unit in the game can be built out of the box, no conversions or buying multiple boxes necessary. I think the inability to take allies and keep clan battle line will be day one errata faq as it technically prevents pesilense from being able to take nurgle allies since by taking allies they lose all battle line options preventing them from being able to form a battleforged army making the use of allies impossible. EDIT-Actually now that I think of it, there is quite a bit on the very first page of the rules section that the video review doesn't cover that I can't see that may explain the allies stuff. At the end of the army list it includes Skaventide as an ally option for the army which makes this the only book that lists its own allegiance as an ally option to the allegiance. I think the intent may be that you can ally in models from other clans using your 1/4 ally points and maintain clan specific battle line.

    Like the rules for all 3 endless spells. The throne is fine, similar in impact to the Idoneth terrain and weaker than things like wildwoods or the loon shrine.
