  1. Yeah it's not like the battletome in isolation is bad, it's actually great, and when it launched in AoS 1 is worked pretty well, though still not Slaanesh level. Literally GW could give everything 10% points reduction, make blades of putrefaction and blightkings "Natural 6" and Nurgle still would not be top tier or anywhere near, but would be more fun and make 4-1s possible for more interesting builds.
  2. This, although admittedly, my whole -1 phobia is from the death meta, which has moved on 6 months since, so that the big players in meta aren't as -1 to hit rich i guess? It's just in a tournament, investing 400/500/600 points in blightkings, only to face someone who makes them slightly better than plaguebearers is a crappy experience. It's frustrating GW haven't FAQ'd the exploding 6s to "natural roll of 6" because then blightkings would be great. Right now, shutting down Blightkings (with faction-agnostic geminids for example) is so easy to do, essentially neutering one of our 2 damage output units.
  3. @sal4m4nd3r has some great lists they've had success with, so have a look back at these pages. In tournaments in the UK, it really is thricefold and nothing else going 4-1 for nurgle. But on a local level, there's a few lists that can be competitive. When I'm playing casual games, my list is something like: GUO Bell/Blade Sorcerer w/ Plague Squall Festus w/ Blades of Putrefaction 30 Plaguebearers 10 PB 10 PB 10 PB 10 Blightkings 6 Drones and it's......ok.....
  4. It depends. Unfortunately, Nurgle's summoning is the easiest summoning to shut down- just stand near trees and it's gone. I've tried it a few times- against players who don't know it, you can summon 2x10 plaguebearers and maybe some nurglings in a game (nothing compared to slaanesh!). For casual games, Horticulous should be enough. He's also got the best save for nurgle (3+) and is a decent model on his own, as well as moving fast enough to keep up with plague drones and triggering their locus ability. If I'm playing competitively I don't take him though as you're paying for +1 tree at the start of the game and like I said, it's not going to help because nurgle summoning is so easy to stop. There's two builds that can really work in competitive play- thricefold or blight cyst. Thricefold needs a lot of skill to play because 3x GUO are hard to maneouvre around and get the benefit of the battalion. Blight Cyst is pretty good, but very expensive battalion for what you get and the -1 to hit a lot of armies have renders blightkings pretty weak.
  5. Quick feedback would be drop sloppity, gutrot (the deepstrike is mostly useless in most scenarios), beasts of nurgle and nurglings. He has Horticulous, which is the character to build a "summoning" list around. Those 3 nurglings will be summonable from turn 2/3 for free. Plague drones are the best damage output we have. There's a debate about running 2x3 or 6 as 6 can almost never be all in combat but giving a unit of 6 blades of putrefaction and triggering their locus makes them very powerful. I would suggest he gets another 20 plaguebearers to make 2x30 and another 5 blightkings to make a decent 10 man unit (41 wounds!). Against magic heavy is a struggle as the best spells are mortal ones (Festus', Blades of Putrefaction) and you can't get any bonus summoning for mortal nurgle. Nurgle's strength in that scenario would be the daemon's resilience with the 5++ save, so more plaguebearers should help. If he can get summoning going with lots of points per turn, it can help to control the board a bit more.

  8. It's the downside of GW's renewed monopoly in the market. Warmahordes seems to have really declined, as the only alternative to GW, so they're likely not feeling any competition at all, just like the old times. With a monopoly, you're going to get high prices. At least the SC boxes and battleforces (and apocalypse boxes for 40k) are relatively good value.
  9. I do sympathise with the "you don't have to buy it" argument HOWEVER, the GW hobby is entirely insular and exclusive. GW don't support 3rd party models, don't allow them in their stores or competition. If it was an open system with competing models, it would be fine. If you're a narrative or open play player, it doesn't matter- just use any old models. If you're competitive, it does matter to a point because GW models are the only models you can use. That's why systems like frostgrave are such a breath of fresh air- zero model prescriptions.
  10. Yeah bit annoying. Thricefold it is for a couple of years!
  11. Guess tournament results will tell. Essex GT is where i think things are heading.
  12. Not sure savage strike nerf AND points increase fot GKTG was needed tbh, but changing to charge only is great. FEC had their 2 months at the top, can't see them competing any more unless some very experienced players play them.
  13. How is Andy Clark as a writer? Not sure I've read any of his stuff. Also annoying I have to wait for the paperback- really don't like BL hardbacks
  14. That's what I'm hoping. They take a lot of time and work so won't be very frequent. Ideally every 1-2 months! I'm open to suggestions, though we're trying to keep it to the Bad Moon customers right now.
