    Nighthaunt Army List

    I like it! Plenty of bodies which I’ve not found easy to get into 2000 points. You should have a nice balance of attrition and power there. My only thought is that it’s a little bit light on characters but, actually, the ones you’ve got do most of what you need characters to do in a Nighthaunt army. How many points is the Vault of Souls? I think there are potentially better endless spells to go at (unless you were just trying to theme it). If you did decide to tweak the list I’d start by considering the spell and the banshees then the mourngul for bigger changes. He’s still scary but not the one ghost wrecking ball that he used to be!

    AoS 2 - Clan Pestilens Discussion

    My previous list involved two congregations of filth with 4 units of 20 Plague Monks. Last night I had my first game with a new list which has 3 units of 40 Plague Monks in one congregation. It made me wonder what the view was on unit size vs unit number. I was finding that I missed the extra unit and that 40 models was quite unwieldy. Even with 40 bodies, you very rarely get more than 20 into combat at one time, but the big block is a lot more survivable, especially with the furnace nearby. Just wondered about others’ experiences? Given the choice, do you prefer fewer large units or more smaller units?

    Nighthaunt Army List

    A man after my own heart! As I said at the start of my post, I just think this army will be a cool collection of models and fun to play with. I don’t expect to win many (any) games with it, but that’s kind of my approach to AoS generally. It’s about the stories, the craic and the jovial interaction with whoever’s on the other side of the table. I think this list will achieve that but thanks for the advice on the revenants, it totally makes sense.

    Nighthaunt Army List

    So would one unit of 10 Bladegheists be better? I’m thinking they would run as close as they can to the black coach which can return models to their unit. They also work in tandem with the Spirit Torment and Chainghasts which buff them too. The reason it was 2 x 5 was the target saturation theory. I’ve been playing Pestilens for about a year and I really like the mentality of not caring when stuff dies because if it’s being targeted something else isn’t being. The Bladegheists are really just a distraction to give the black coach more freedom. I can definitely see that a unit of 10 might do this better than 2 x 5 though.

    Nighthaunt Army List

    My current list basically involves me have no an excuse to buy all the models I think look awesome! I think (tentatively) it’s a reasonably good list as well but we’ll let the internet be the judge of that! Lady Olynda - General Reikenor the Grimhailer Deathblade Harrow Guardian of Souls Spirit Torment 20 Chainrasps 20 Chainrasps 6 Spirit Hosts Black Coach 5 Bladegheist Revenants 5 Bladegheist Revenants 2 Changhasts Chainguard Battalion I haven’t decided on items or spells yet but the theory behind the list is primarily target saturation. There is the anvil side of the list that is based on healing and numbers (chainrasps, Olynda, GoS, Torment, Chainghasts, Spirit Hosts) and the hammer/annoyance side which is the coach, the Bladegheists, Reikenor and Deathblade Harrow. It’s a list built more with objective capturing in mind than dishing out pain but I’m worried that there isn’t enough damage output. I think that might be a slight weakness of the faction generally? I’ve seen a lot of lists which favour reapers over chainrasps. Is that a better way to go? What would you recommend for items and spells? Thanks in advance to anyone who comments.

    AoS 2 - Clan Pestilens Discussion

    Okay, found it. Looks pretty tasty. Is it really much better than the other verminlord options though? How many points is it?

    What is a Warpgnaw Verminlord? Can’t find a scroll for this. Where’s it from?

    The plagueclaw splits opinion but I personally rate it and would have it in place of your two rattling guns. Again, personal opinion but I always go foetid blades to get the rerolls to hit. Even with the reach and gouge tear their eyes, the blades are more reliable in the same circumstances. Good list though. It’ll be fun and cause some carnage. Good luck with it and thank you for pointing out the 2+ units thing; that’s going to help me massively! 😀

    AoS 2 - Clan Pestilens Discussion

    The wording says “at the start of any combat phase” so I’d say it’s from when the plague goes off until the end of the game. Technically you could claim it lasts beyond that game on that wording but I think you’d lose friends quickly for trying to suggest that 😉

    Has Azyr not updated properly or is it right that we can no longer have Warp Lightning Canons and Doomwheels as allies?

    AoS 2 - Clan Pestilens Discussion

    The Congregation of Filth is really good, which is probably why it has gone up by 30 points (although the furnace has come down by 20 so net gain is 10 points). I take tolsedts point about more rats, but I think the 6+ save against damage and the ability to reroll charges is indespensible in an army that struggles with any kind of durability. I suppose, in essence, more rats take longer to kill so perhaps it's swings and roundabouts. I also used to run the Virulent Procession until I realised that the Verminlord, whilst useful as a support piece, is not worth that number of points being sunk into him. Protect him with artefacts (Vexler's Shroud for example) and good positioning on the table instead. I haven't really tried any of the other battalions, they don't look up to much to me.
  12. I'm having some issues with Warscroll Builder for submitting my list for AoS. I noticed in the pack that you need an army list emailed before the event and that you suggest using Warscroll Builder to do this, however it seems not to have been properly updated for General's Handbook 2017. It only offers GH1 or GH2 (Trial) at present and this trial appears not to have taken updated points into account. Long story short (maybe a bit late for that!) can I just type out my list and email it to the address given, or can I do it through Azyr? Thanks Edit - Think I’ve sorted it now. Weird thing was that the issue I was having was through a network P.C. at work. On my iPad, GHB2017 is on there and working pretty much as it should. Just thought I’d post on here in case others are having similar issues.

    GH2017 - Ironjawz Review & Discussion

    I have a barely begun IJ army which I was losing my hobby mojo for. After reading this, I can't wait to crack on with them great write up Chris. Will read your promised follow up posts with great interest!

    New factions?

    Surely humans must get some attention at some point? The free people and what's left of the Empire seem to have been left out in the cold since Stormcast became the poster boys. I'm expecting some kind of re-emergance of Karl Franz at some point. But yeah, before that I'm fairly sure Aelves and the other chaos gods will get something.

    Mixed armaments within units

    Off topic slightly but is there anything in the rules that actually prevents other units taking mixed arms e.g. a unit of 6 Kurnoth hunters, 2 with scythes, 2 with swords, 2 with bows? I had considered running 3 swords and 3 scythes in the same unit to get the extra attacks in the front "rank" and the extra reach from the back.
