  1. Finished 40 ghouls- another 60 to go! Simple base coat/wash/drybrush for these guys so i can concentrate on the basing for the bigger models. Quick job on the charnel throne too- airbrush basecoat and shading then wash/drybrush. Trying some skin shading on the second Arch Regent and it looks ok...sorta.
  2. Spear of shadows got me into AoS books! In fact it sort of started my whole re-appraisal of AoS lore in general- the old world was total fantasy trope world. It was done really well, but it was essentially identical to a huge number of other fantasy worlds. AoS, and especially aos 2/recent books, have made AoS a much more interesting world that's unlike any other.
  3. Wasn't that the warhammer world only book? Imagine there were very limited number of copies. I got it e-book- it's worth reading- the physical copies are just ludicrously priced.
  4. It's not entirely unlikely they re-cost summoning for us tho- as you say 14 contagion for 10 plaguebearers that usually come on turn 3 earliest is insane. They could just half the cost of all summoning and we still wouldn't compete with Slaanesh.
  5. I realised this when i ran my first "summoning" list with Horticulous. Explained it was 1mw on a 4+ in each hero phase and my opponent just stood next to both trees and kept models in both sides of the table. Got nothing summoned for the game. Easies thing to shut down.

  10. I think in general- and GW sort of acknowledge this to an extent- BL is almost a separate part of the hobby. Most readers don't play the game at all. I think that's particularly true for the HH and 40k books- all the BL NYTimes bestseller list books are just popular scifi books in their own right. For me, I have little time to actually play anymore, so reading AoS books is what most of my "hobby time" is spent on. That's true for a lot of our customers when I talk to them- they've read the Horus Heresy series or Gotrek or some AoS novels but don't have time to make, paint and play a whole army! The novels are my main contact with the hobby most of the time!
  11. In my last 5 games with nurgle i successfully cast blades twice. Though that luck transferred to my SCE as well, so it's not a nurgle specific problem! I think Glottkin's great- he does great combat and range damage, his spell is one of the best in the game as is his command ability! Only thing for me is the 7 to cast- it just never happens for me (and statistically is like half the time) and it's a big reason to take him IMO. In AoS 1, I always took him and had great success with Nurgle. It's just a little too much like a struggle in AoS 2 to play them too often!
  12. I know you're a decent Nurgle player, but not relying on spells, when Nurgle spells are one of the best things about nurgle, just shows how disadvantaged we are by a year and a half of newer battletomes and the huge increase of magic in the meta.
  13. I'd also say if our stuff gets a points drop in GH19 we'll be in a better place. Right now thricefold is the only list that seems to go 4-1 or better at tournaments, but plaguebearers and blightkings are great battleline units. Plague drones are a great unit in general too, but at 2k points i always feel i don't quite have enough. I also think if blades of putrefaction and blightknig's ability trigger on a role of 6 before modifiers that would really help. Right now there's so much -1 to hit stuff that blades and blightkings become useless/extremely expensive unit for zero damage output.
