    AoS 2 - Free Cities (Firestorm) Discussion

    So I've been tossing around the idea of a 'Grand Alliance: Dwarf' army for a while, and I figured I'd ask here, if anywhere, about which Free City rules work best? The idea is that I'd only use models from Dispossessed, Ironweld, Fyreslayers and Kharadron. With a possible addition of Stormcast for magic support. The issue therein is that I don't think Fyreslayers are included in many of the free cities, which is a bother. At the end of the day I *could* just drop Fyreslayers entirely, though. Food for thought. What do you guys think?

    I say Staff absolutely. 2d6 shots at 3+/3+ is sick. Speaking of, I'm hard considering countering the meta enlightened spam with this nonsense list. What do you guys think?

    Yeah that's when they added another attack to Enlightened, too. Double check your warscrolls.

    As per the rules change, you only need one shield in the unit for the 6++, so 1-2 per 10 Tzaangors is perfectly fine.

    This is the 1k I'm hoping to test this weekend. Close to yours, but a Summoner is nearly essential to tzeentch. We don't have a lot of other ways to deal with hordes.

    So I've just started Tzeentch and I'm having a boatload of fun. After tinkering with lists a bit, I came up with these 'must have' units but I'm at a bit of a roadblock as to what to include from here. My issue is that I don't want to fall into Tzaangor Enlightened spam, which seems to be the current meta. What else should I take?

    What do you think is Tzeentch's best stand out battleline? Tzaangors are a great melee unit, and hardy with their 6++ and 2 wounds a piece. Also access to rend which is hard to find for Tzeentch. I think the typical size is 10-20 nowadays? 32mms are hard to get into reach. Kairics are cheap all rounders with OK range and OK melee. Only issue is that they're largely considered 'battleline tax' and people rarely take more than 10 at a time, so they're probably not going to last long. (Is there any merit to taking large amounts of Kairics?) Pink Horrors are interesting in that they're actually 50 wounds in a 10 wound can. They're wizards, which helps out a lot, and they have nice shooting and self-regeneration. Absolutely ass in melee though. Can become monetarily expensive what with needing 20 blues and brimstones per 10 pinks. I haven't seen many people use the Tzeentch marked STD units, but from what I know, squads of 5 sword n board warriors are hardy speed bumps for the enemy to crash into. What's the best combination of these, you think? 1-2 pinks and a unit of 20 Tzaangors is probably a good pick, imo, with a shaman to back them up. Good ranged and good melee.

    So I recently bought into Tzeentch and I mainly love the Daemons. However, the more I tinker with lists, the more I consider adding Tzaangors and Enlightened. Daemons don't have a melee punch, really, and that's where Tzaangors strive.

    AoS 2 - Disciples of Tzeentch Discussion

    So I've got an idea for a list to compete in my local shop's hyper competitive meta. It's designed to be anti-meta and anti-fun, essentially. It's all in theory, though. Let me know what you think. Allegiance: TzeentchHerald Of Tzeentch (140)- Staff of Change- Artefact: Wellspring of Arcane Might - Lore of Change: Fold RealityLord Of Change (380)- General- Trait: Arcane Sacrifice - Artefact: Mark of the Conjurer - Lore of Change: Tzeentch's FirestormGaunt Summoner and Chaos Familiars (180)- Lore of Fate: Bolt of Tzeentch10 x Pink Horrors Of Tzeentch (200)- Lore of Change: Treason of Tzeentch10 x Pink Horrors Of Tzeentch (200)- Lore of Change: Arcane Transformation10 x Pink Horrors Of Tzeentch (200)- Lore of Change: Unchecked Mutation10 x Brimstone Horrors Of Tzeentch(70)10 x Brimstone Horrors Of Tzeentch(70)10 x Brimstone Horrors Of Tzeentch(70)10 x Blue Horrors Of Tzeentch (100)10 x Blue Horrors Of Tzeentch (100)Multitudinous Host (240)Balewind Vortex (40)Total: 1990 / 2000Extra Command Points: 1Allies: 0 / 400Wounds: 104 So the Horrors heal d3 each hero phase and can go above max size. Brimstones heal 1. Every death fuels the horror unit in front of it, and the pinks can be replenished with Fold Reality and their Banner. Not to mention however many Flamers, Screamers, and other Horrors I can summon in every turn. I can swap the Gaunt out for an Ogroid if I'm fighting a more elite army and spawn Brimstones to tie up nasties, too. The issue herein is that I'll need something like 80 extra Blue Horrors and Brimstones. And like a good 20ish extra Pinks, however many Daemons of whatever I summon. On the other hand, it's also something like 200+ wounds to chew through. It may not kill quickly, but it's definitely survivable as long as I have a hero to keep summoning. What do you guys think? A fool's errand?

    That's saying a lot of words but not necessarily helping any lol. But I understand where you're coming from. Blue scribes is probably better for 2k, I agree. Easily swapped for herald. But do I even want a herald? If I drop the 140, and the two endless spells, I can fit in something like 6 screamers to backup the Ogroid (or vise versa) for combat. Or heck, 6 enlightened on foot can do that as well. It's something to consider at least.

    AoS 2 - Disciples of Tzeentch Discussion

    So I'm pretty interested in starting up a small army of Tzeentch. I was actually going to do this before 2.0 but was sort of driven away with how cheese Tzeentch was on the onset. Now they're not too terrible. Problem is, I don't know jack about building an army list. This is especially important because I don't want to use any Tzaangors or Kairics at all. Just Daemons of Tzeentch. I'm aiming for 1k right now, but I'm not especially sure what's the best option. I especially don't know what heroes are good any more, but I know I like Screamers and Horrors and Flamers and all that jazz a lot. This is what I came up with. Allegiance: Tzeentch Gaunt Summoner and Chaos Familiars (180) - Lore of Fate: Treacherous Bond Ogroid Thaumaturge (180) - General - Trait: Arcane Sacrifice - Artefact: Gryph-feather Charm - Lore of Fate: Infusion Arcanum The Blue Scribes (140) - Lore of Change: Treason of Tzeentch 10 x Pink Horrors Of Tzeentch (200) - Lore of Change: Bolt of Tzeentch 10 x Pink Horrors Of Tzeentch (200) - Lore of Change: Fold Reality Balewind Vortex (40) Aethervoid Pendulum (40) Soulsnare Shackles (20) Total: 1000 / 1000 Extra Command Points: 0 Allies: 0 / 200 Wounds: 38 Aside from what's visible, what other Daemons do I need to buy to get it going? So far my shopping list looks like this Start Collecting Tzeentch (convert blue scribes out of chariot) Gaunt Summoner Ogroid 1x Pink box 4x Blues/Brims boxes Does that sound right?

    That's fair. I know Clanrats are more survivable than Monks are, by far. Even with a 5+/6+ save. It's just that, in my head, if I deepstrike my monks, I will only have the firefiends and the shockfiends to weather any charges or fire, for any of the turns my tunneling fails. Even on a 3+ it'll happen. I can negate that by maybe grabbing a small unit of Clanrats and/or summoning Shackles, or Palisade but it still seems scary. I think I'll stick with the 3x fire/3x shock/3x grinder for my fiends though. That seems to be the best mix.

    I'm on the fence on deepstriking the monks, as they're my only sort of objective control. Instead I decided to Grinderfist two of the Stormfiends. This is the list I've been toying around with.
