It makes me sad too, I love the model, I think he is quite striking with the halberd and lantern but while he was appealing he is lacking compared to other melee hero options in the army. The main thrust of my argument is based on his competition that, in my opinion you would never not take over the Castellant... the Lord Veritant. The catellants lantern is largely useless in this period of the game as you must roll a 7+ for a save which is near impossible given the prevalence of rend and the nerfing of mystic shield. The Veritant has a lantern therefore he can take mystic lights, he's a wizard hunter including being able to unbind in some cases with +3 to the role. He has the gryphhound. He has the same weapon plus one attack. He is a priest and can take a prayer. All this he gets for a measly 20 points over the Castellant. I think the Veritant needs nerfing less than I think the Castellant needs buffing/rewriting. I think a lot of the early stormcast units/models need a small rework to make sense in the new landscape and that they were designed with a different kind of game in mind. Looking forward to arguments and concurrences.
A few months ago I've started collecting and playing Age of Sigmar with my brother and my girlfriend. I wanted to pick up Stormcast Eternals because I really like the aesthetics of this army. I got the Stormcast Eternals half of the Age of Sigmar starter set, and from that point I bought Knight Venator, Celestant Prime, Judicators, Start Collecting! Stormcast Eternals, Lord Castellant and Paladin Protectors. I really liked the Pitched Battle mode, so I've set my eyes on the tournament scene and would like to slowly get into playing in the torunaments. At the moment my 2000 point roster looks like this: I checked the rules regarding the Hammerstrike Force, and as far as I can see you have to set the Paladins within 6" of the Prosecutors. If my logic is right then setting up Prosecutors and the Lord Celestant in the Celestial Realm (due to Scions of the Storm), placing them within 9" of the enemy and then deploying the Paladins within 3" of a priority target as long as they are within 6" of the prosecutors should work, right? I was wondering about the viability of the list in terms of tournament play. In my mind that would work, but then again I played only 1000-1500 point games against Sylvaneth and Blades of Khorne so far. What would be the next steps for expanding my collection of miniatures and getting more versatility in Pitched Battles? I was thinking about getting Fulminators with a Heraldor, or maybe a Stardrake.
