    AoS 2 - Legion of Blood Discussion

    Does Neffs command ability stack with itself? Looking at the wording I'd say no, am I correct?

    AoS 2 - Legion of Sacrament Discussion

    If I told you how many times it's been an issue with my local playing group... having to argue with rules lawyers about RAW/RAI in both the spanish and the english versions of the rules is tiresome. In the last tourney I entered the two players playing the final couldn't come to an agreement at a certain point and the game was paused for like 10 min while they looked up the FAQS and rulebooks in both languages

    AoS 2 - Legion of Sacrament Discussion

    Tell me about it, rules in spanish are often flat out wrong or misleading. The latest books came out with tons of errors and in some cases even missing warscroll abilities and command abilities for certain units. It's gotten to the point where I don't even bother with the spanish versions and instead buy and look up everything in english. They really need to step it up.

    AoS 2 - Legion of Blood Discussion

    Doppelganger Cloak seems like the best artefact for any list running multiple dragons, be it a Legion of Blood list or the dreaded Order Dragon-Spam list. It's so good to just charge carelessly into units with both of them and having the opponent not be able to react until you have already stomped the defending units.

    Blackout Top Nagash List, Nagash Thoughts

    I'll consider it then! You definitely didn't come as that much of a downer, I just wanted to clarify some of my own fears surrounding Nagash To change topics and tone: Were that many endless spells useful? I'm still testing them, since I haven't had much time to play these days, but only one at a time, so I'm not sure how super useful they are when they come down in later turns, specially spells like the Shackles. EDIT: I guess them being so cheap makes them easy to justify to round up to 1900 points.

    Blackout Top Nagash List, Nagash Thoughts

    Thank you for your insight, I'm really considering not buying Nagash just because I'm pretty sure he will get nerfed and many people around me have already told me they won't play me if I bring him on the table, so I was looking at Arkhan as a possible replacement, albeit a flawed one since he doesn't do nearly as much as Nagash. I don't really go to Major Events for now, but the competitive side of me would like to go to one someday; I may have to look at other armies then and leave Death at home.

    Blackout Top Nagash List, Nagash Thoughts

    As LLV says, don't you think viable lists using Arkhan could arise? What route would you take if you were to build such lists?

    What about Soulsnare as an endless spell? With how fast the meta seems to be anything to stop charges seems really valuable to me. Would you still play First Cohort? I'm not really liking the Morghast to be honest, I'd much rather have something else.

    I see lots of people putting grimghast on their lists, are they that good or is it just the novelty aspect of them?

    Tournament Death Lists Discussion

    Congrats! Your good showings on tournaments seem to continue! I haven't had much time to experiment with AOS 2.0 myself, but from what I've seen from the other Death players in the area 2x40 skeletons work like a charm in most lists. The one I saw having the most success had Arkhan and his battalion + 2x40 skeletons as a core, so that's an interesting approach I'd like to test myself whenever I finally have enough time to actually play What was your list? I'm assuming it was the one with the 30 direwolves, Arkhan and Vhordrai?

    What do you guys think about replacing Skellies with Chainrasps in Legion of Sacrament lists? They move faster and fly, so they are potentially better at capping objectives, they have better rend protection, and they replenish just as fast, the only downside being that skellies would generally be considered killier overall. I feel in a list with bigger hammers they can effectively push skellies out. I was thinking along the lines of going for Arkhan+Vhordrai/VLOZD/Abhorrant Ghoul King on Terrorgheist+2 necros and 2 units of 40 rasps as a core for a generalist legion of sacrament list to expand from.

    AoS 2 - Free Cities (Firestorm) Discussion

    Do we know if we have to adhere to specific realms if we want to use specific Free Cities? Like having to use the Realm of Fire if you play with Tempest's Eye.

    AoS 2 - Free Cities (Firestorm) Discussion

    I really haven't used the Unforged ever, actually, so you are more than likely right haha I could try the artifact switch, thanks for the tips! About the list changes, My thought process was to test shackles, if they didn't work I was going to try 30 warriors and cogs or just substituting the mage for another runelord and go with that, because yeah, not having the two runelords is something that really stings, but I couldn't find a way to drop the points further without dropping the Gyros, which I absolutely love as models

    AoS 2 - Free Cities (Firestorm) Discussion

    Since we are talking about Tempest's Eye, my favourite allegiance, I'll take the chance to post the changed version of my own list, now in excel form haha to help visualize roughly what I'd bring. The basic idea is to take a strong duardin core with the battalion, effectively making this a Dispossessed(+) allegiance with the extra benefits from Order and Firestorm. To further synergize with the allegiance abilities, I focused on taking Flyers as allies and I gave the Thermalrider coat to the Unforged to buff him up as much as possible so he isn't as useless (6" move with +4 from the cloak and +4 the first turn because he is flying isn't that bad, and with Legendary Fighter he can definitely do some damage while ). Tempest's eye is great, since it allows my duardin to run the first turn and not lose as much from not rerolling saves and allows my irondrakes to be positioned to shoot. My main focus was to have enough bodies to cap objectives, that's why I went for 40 warriors, and the rest help fill out battalion requirements as well as being screens for my irondrakes and other vulnerable guys. The warden king I built for extra survivability with the second artifact, since I want him to use the command ability as a sort of kill mark for the irondrakes or even the warriors. And last but not least, I had 130 extra points left. I still wanted more speed control in the battle and some way to combat magic and especially endless spells, so a wizard and an endless spell of my own seemed the way to go. Too bad I couldn't fit cogs, but still, with shackles I can somewhat do a similar thing by limiting movement in some parts of the map. I still don't have all the minis, but I'm really interested in seeing how this list performs since for me it sounds strong on paper. Most of the army re-rolls ones to hit and thanks to the battalion the list doesn't have that many drops, so that's cool.

    AoS 2 - Dispossessed Discussion

    Imo we need bodies to cap objectives, so for a starting list I'm planning to go for: Warden King 120 Runelord 100 20 Warriors 160 10 Longbeards 100 10 Ironbreakers 140 20 Irondrakes 360 980 points But there are many different variations you could go for, you could even start by adding mobility first instead of the bodies, something like dropping the warriors for 10 longbeards and adding a Gyrocopter could be good as well (so you'd be at 1k exactly). Imo the Warden King, Runelord and Irondrakes are the mandatory core, from there you can go in different directions as I said.
