I am not the most experienced player, but I like to compete from time to time in official tournaments. I play mainly destruction (gitz & jawz) and I struggle a lot against shooting heavy lists. In my group is a Skaven player who runs 12 Stormfiends, and another member rocks 30+ buffed up Irondrakes in a Tempest Eye dwarf list. And now, after what I've heard, was pre faq'd Tzeentch doing overly well in recent tourneys. Mostly with some cheesy strategy, in preventing the opponent from retreating from 10-20 Pinks and lighting them up with Flamers from behind. The most competitive SCE list includes the usage of Hurricanes by a lot. KO and Cities have a lot of shots as well. And the upcoming Seraphon and Pointy Elves release will produce also strong shooty options (by comparing the old stuff). Do you have any tips along the lines of good deployment, screening, going defensive/offensive. Right now, as my chosen faction, does not really have the option of shooting back effectively. My "gameplan" is to cast geminids and hope my stuff does not get shot off, before I reach my opponents screens. And then I get deleted, lol. I can only assume, but my guess is that shooting will be very prominent in the future. And maybe we can discuss here, how to deal with that meta shift. Or maybe in your oppinion shooting is fine and I just need to "git gud". Your thoughts on AOS is a melee driven game and should stay that way. Let's have some fun with it.
I am looking for my next project for AOS! I loved the feel of the old fantasy dwarves - heavy army, grudges, grumbling and stubbornness. I have also really come round to the overlords, having originally hated them. I am looking to build an initial 1000pt force that is not total rubbish, and shouldnt cost too much money to build up over 3/4 months. I am not expecting a super competitive force but thats ok. I am looking for advice from you more experienced folks. what units/purchases would you guys recommend? I was thinking the overlords battleforce is a sensible place to start? And after the first 1000pts where would you go? Something like for the 1st 1000pts: Arkanaut Frigate (280pts) Arkanaut Company x10 (120pts) Skywardens (100pts) Arkanaut Admiral (140pts) Longbeards x20 (240pts) Warden King (120pts) Total: 1000pts
