    Nighthaunt mini madness

    Amazing stuff. Nice blog as well. I really like how you use texture as a contrast to the ethereal parts. Im watching you.

    AoS 2 - Nighthaunt Discussion

    @Henlkhyn Im currently trying to figure out myself what to get. The named Heroes are the ones giving me the most headache. They seem a bit underwhelming, what Im trying to figure out is, if we can run an effective army by just using our smaller heroes. Using a Harrow as our genral and transporting small units of Grimghast could work. Battalions are probably not worth the tax. Grimghasts with support heroes are pretty effective, so go get as many as you can afford.

    Army Showcase: Sylvaneth

    Welcome to my Army Showcase: Sylvaneth

    Whispers in the dark

    In order to really get going with AOS 2.0 I have startet a Nighthaunt army. My approach has been very different from what I did with my Sylvaneth, they took me 2 years to paint. My Nighthaunt army is a speed paint projekt, Its all about getting the job done an hitting the gaming table as fast as possible. I have startet out with the Soulwars set, and have only added some more Grimghast Reapers, for now. The aim is to make a well rounded 1000 point army, play a few games and see how it goes. Cheers.

    Whispers in the dark

    So this Thursday I had the pleasure of playing AGAINST Nighthaunt. To make the game more interesting I brought my Sylvaneth. Its always find it enlightening to play against an army that I am currently collecting myself. Facing the Nighthaunt gave me some insight into the strengths and maybe some of it weaknesses of the army. We played 1000 points, Places of Arcane power, but modified so that all models could score on the objectives. So after playing this game, Im still not sure what to think about our Heros. My opponent used a Harrow as his general, It gave him a certain edge on scenario play, since he could easily zip across the board bringing units with him. Im wondering how this would work In 2000 points? Can we get away with only using our smaller heroes? The Grimgasts are just awesome, with the right support they cut through my Kurnoth Hunters way too easy. I actually think that it was the Grimghast and the Harrow that won my opponent the game, and some cunning play on his behalf.

    I have just started analyzing the Battletome. So I havent really decided yet. But it seams that the Lady Olynder is the most diverse of our heroes.

    Path to Glory Campaign

    Me and my gaming group is preparing for a 'Path to Glory' campaign. We are not going to roll our Warbands, but will instead use the points from matched play. The first goal is to write a small introduction of the Warbands and to name the Hero. We will be starting out with 300 points a build from there. Warbands are gathering for the coming storm. The forces of Orders have secured the Seeds of Hope, but the Chaos gods are never contend and never truly defeated. Lord Nurgle is preparing for an onslaught of unknown proportions and bend on tainting the Realm of Life once for all. War is upon the Mortal realms and champions must now muster there forces in an epic 'Path to Glory' Daemons of Nurgle By Spiky Norman ...the dull, hollow ringing of the brass bell and accompanied with an incessant wet coughing was the sound of contagion, spreading slowly but inevitably like the rainstorms in the distance... Sylvaneth By Nixon Esyae was patrolling the borders of the forest. It was her duty, as a Branchwych of the Silveroak Glade, to make sure that the newly sprung forest would not once again become tainted by Chaos. The Radiant Wood had sprung to life and the spirit-song was growing once again. But a slow humming was starting to form and the soothing voices of the spirit-song was turning into something different. The Leader of Clan Lothian was calling, Esyae was duty bound to answer, it was a song of war. It was time once again to muster the Wargrove and purge the taint.

    Tales of Gamer

    When the Tales of Gamer was first introduced I jumped straight in. I knew that I was going to build a Sylvaneth army. I had just picked up some Ironjaws and had started getting into AOS. But the annunciation of the Sylvaneth made my go and leave the Ironjaws for later. My goal is to have 1000 GH point worth of models finished by the end of the year. Hopefully I will also have played in a Path to Glory campaign and participated in an upcoming tournament. But first here is my great cunning plan: July: Tree-Revenants 22.5 £ Branchwych 14 £ Total 36.5 £ August: Sylvaneth Treelord Ancient 25 £ Sylvaneth Dryads 25 £ Total 50 September: Kurnoth Hunters 35 £ Kurnoth Hunters 35 £ Total 70 £ October: Sylvaneth Dryads 25 £ November Durthu 25 £ December Catch up. Sylvaneth Wyldwoods 18 £ January Basing and Flocking Sylvaneth Wyldwoods 18 £

    Long time no posting. I did actually finish the army and is now the proud owner of 2000 points of Sylvaneth. But for the moment Im learning the ropes of AOS 2.0 with Nighthaunt. I will return to Sylvaneth at some point.

    Whispers in the dark

    Just played my first game with Nighthaunt. Vanguard size, Knife to the heart against the Devoted of Sigmar. I actually managed a turn one charge using up a lot of command point to rush forward. Only problem my heroes got left a little behind. That was my first learning point, Nighthaunt heroes need to stay close. The game turned into a long grind, and in the end I could not remove enough Flagellants to actually reach the objective. That was my second learning point, use flight to move deep into the enemy zone fast. My List so far Leaders Guardian of Souls with Nightmare Lantern (140) - General Knight of Shrouds on Ethereal Steed (140) Lord Executioner (80) Spirit Torment (120) Battleline 20 x Chainrasp Horde (160) 10 x Grimghast Reapers (140) Units 4 x Glaivewraith Stalkers (60) Total: 840 / 1000 Extra Command Points: 3 Allies: 0 / 200 Wounds: 55 I very much enjoyed playing Nighthaunt, and I'm looking forward to my next game and expanding the army.
