  1. I've struggled so much trying to write a 1000pts BS list. At 1250 I'm happy but at 1k I've been lost. I have a large Destro collection and I think my Mawtribes 1k is just so much better. I guess the biggest question at 1k is what format are you playing and what battleplans. Meeting Engagement? or normal and rolling for 1 of the 18 battleplans (can't remember the name... its probably pitched battle). 30 boyz and boar units are probably the best units in BS at 1k.
  2. Has anyone messed around with a BW list that builds around this battleline set up? Was it any good? I only own 6 pigs and haven't been tempted to buy 6 more. However, I have a feeling this could be quite good.

  3. 100% Most people know this on the forum but I wish the GW community team and GW store owners would be more open about this fact rather than pushing sales and generating hype for new products.
  4. My belief is that this is because the DP of nurgle is an older model. If something is going to be good I think GW opts for models which they can produce and sell in volume. They most likely did not intend the original ability to be meta defining. Once they found out it would have an large impact they needed to decide what to do with it. Nerfing an old model to the ground was the easiest solution.
  5. I would instruct any friend to only buy models that you can still get off the shelf at a GW store and that has a warscroll in a modern AOS2.0 black label book. It is hard to explain all of this over the forum. Start small. Buy and paint models you like. Start with those free rules you posted. But be aware that there is a much larger ecosystem to AOS that many old model/warscroll are not a part of and will most likely never become a part of.
  6. There are 3 ways of play. Matched, open, narative. Only Matched is explicit in its use of points. I can find the citation in the core book if challenged. You can balance by wounds, experience, etc... for open and narative. Without additional structure imposed through something like matched play pitched battles found in the full rule book GW instructed you to build armies as follows in the free rules:
  7. Because GW has no interest in balancing these older units. Across the board you will find that legends/compendium warscrolls will not preform like battletome warscrolls with battletome synergies. If you like these units then by all means go for it. But know that you are buying and using units that are not in the long term (or even short term) GW plan.
  8. This is certainly my preference for the battleline setup as well. I opt for a swap of the Skikkas to 30 Arrowboyz who chill behind 8 stabbas in a line flanked by the 20x2 Arrowz. The 8 stabbas are a lot of points. Can go poof pretty easy. I always take 1 extra CP to mitigate a battleshock. I like your list.
  9. Thank you. I had the same question
  10. It’s exactly this imo. They want ppl to buy 1 SC. Not 5
  11. That’s the issue with listing before warscroll builder is up! Leadbelchers battleline If?
  12. 1 week before release (pre order date) previewers are allowed to publicly share information from the tomes they received early. With the modern internet it gets spread like wildfire. There are many sites and youtube channels that just post / read the book cover to cover. Here are 2 of them. There are countless others.

  13. In order to re live the glory days of 2 FLoSh with battle brew this is the list I'm painting up. I already own the models so I don't really have to worry about how good it is. I think it will be a ton of fun to run 3 FLs together dealing impact hits. Tribe Meatfist Mawtribe Battle trait: Add 1 dice for MW charge Command ability: Add +1 attack for bite Frostlord on Stonehorn 400 2000 Mount trait: Add +1 hit for horn Artifact: Reroll saves of 1 Command trait: Hero phase + 1 CP if eating Frostlord on Stonehorn 400 Frostlord on Stonehorn 400 12 Ogor Gluttons 400 2 Leadbelchers 80 2 Leadbelchers 80 Butcher 140 Spell: Cast on 7 +1 attack for gluttons Gnoblars 100
  14. Other stuff got better in the game imo. Last time I remember him being good in combat was when it was just the 4 GA books. His scroll is fine... but the game isn't about your scroll now. It's about the tomes interactions. He's just a slow dude on foot. His CA is usable thou if you build around it.
  15. Yes I believe the poster has a typo. They use to be 3 so I understand the error. Ironically I own 6. Do not really want to ebay 2 more so if someone wants to pick up 2 from me they can go ahead!
