    Wrath and Rapture

    NZ price gouge though... Soul Wars is currently $250 here now, but I seem to remember it being like 330 on release for us. ☹ If it's 95bp it should be 175nzd + shipping, but will probably be 175 + 25% at least instead. All good. I'm halving one with a friend of Khorne, so it'll still be less that a SC! box.

    Just a few more days until preorder. When do the prices get announced, the day beforehand?

    AoS 2 - Hosts of Slaanesh Discussion

    If the design team was feeling less creative, then she'll dish out prayer-based arcane bolts and come pre-loaded with 10 Daemonettes that auto-summon when a certain condition is met. Personally I hope she deals high-rend damage at range, not mortal wounds.
  4. @Retro Not in a GW store, but as I'm literally intending to do this myself (and organize the silly things), I wouldn't complain if you did it. πŸ˜…

    The Rumour Thread

    If GW stick to that plan, and assuming it was actually planned that way and not just coincidence that LoN, flesheater courts, nighthaunt, and beasts of chaos all ended up the same as presented in the faction focus, then yeah probably? I feel like the plan changes every other year though. πŸ˜…

    AoS 2 - Disciples of Tzeentch Discussion

    Are you sure? The warscroll for acolytes is different to the one for tzaangors. It specifically mentions allocating wounds to the model not the unit, whereas the tzaangor warscroll specifies the unit rather than the model. That says to me that once you allocate to a model with a shield, and fail the save, the model you chose recieves the wound and is removed. Of course it could be just another example of inconsistent phrasing... πŸ˜‘

    The Scattering of AoS's Ruleset

    It's a grey area... It's probably not a good idea to upload it, but depending on where you live, copying text you've legally purchased for personal use should be fine. Where I live it's ok to directly duplicate up to 10% of a book's text for research and reference purposes, i just can't show up to a warhammer store with those copied pages unless i also bring the original source.

    AoS 2 - Slaves to Darkness / Darkoath Discussion

    Nurgle for the knights; they already hit on 3s or 4s (2s or 3s with a mounted lord nearby), so rerolling 1s to wound is the better buff in my opinion.

    ...I need to go put some shields on some guys. πŸ˜…
  10. I was confused for a moment as to why you would lose a Tzeentch spell, but then i realized the shaman isn't an arcanite, daemon, or mortal... dang. 😐

    Wrath and Rapture

    Isn't that blasphemy?! πŸ˜… I don't know about the Khorne SC!, but the Slaanesh one is amazingly versatile in what you can build out of it, and unlike most of the SC! boxes I've picked up since I started playing, none of the units are bad on the table (i swear some of those boxes exist solely to move models no one ever uses).

    AoS 2 - Hosts of Slaanesh Discussion

    Nope. πŸ˜… The assumption that there will be one is based on there having been a chaos release on or around Christmas, 3 years running. But Darkoath are a strong possibility too, with rats another less likely one. With Wrath and Rapture coming out there's a fair chance that Slaanesh is getting a staggered, Nurgle-style release with the boxed game this year or early next year, and the full battletome next Christmas. Fingers crossed that is not the case, but it's a possibility.

    How to deal with a Behemoth

    Ok? Sunbolt gauntlet; averages 3 attacks, 2 hit, 1 wounds, 2 damage (daemon keyword). Sunstone spear; 2 hits, 1-2 wounds, average 2-4 damage. Clawed forelimbs, 2 hit, 1 wounds, 0-2 damage. Massive jaws; 3 hit, 2 wound, 6 damage. Yeah ok, 14 damage assuming you fail every single save, but on average you'll pass 1/3 so that rounds down to 9. The clawed forelimbs only have a 50/50 shot of working, as does the roar, and as far as I'm aware the old-blood's attack boost can only affect one of his own attack profiles, not the carnosaur's (heroes and mounts rule?). I don't know what to tell you really if you can't take more optimal choices (bloodcrushers are worse than skullcrushers), except be aware of his threat range and position to charge him rather than getting charged by him. Khorne is actually a finesse army believe it or not; you'll have to get good at positioning and buff-bubble overlapping to win with them... if you try to zerg, you'll just lose. πŸ˜‘

    How to deal with a Behemoth

    Was he rolling hot? I did some quick, dirty head-math and by my guesstimate he would only average about 8 damage if you failed all your saves... thats 2 crushers dead, with the other auto-passing battleshock (unless the roar got him)? He would've then been pinned if he couldn't wipe the unit, leaving your bloodletters free to take a serious chunk out of him. I feel like either there was a misplay with rules, or you got really unlucky. πŸ€”

    AoS 2 - Hosts of Slaanesh Discussion

    I like her in both; i had the opportunity to try 8th ed 40k the other day, and used her and another herald to babysit a 30 of Daemonettes... All the buffs! They all died though; rolling 1s to advance two turns in a row vs Tau really hurts. πŸ˜…
