Hi all, hope this is the right place for this. I'm starting out on a Warcry campaign and will chronicle my Iron Golems story here. The only difference I'm applying is that my roster will be randomly chosen each game. I have two of each model with the exception of the Dominar, Perfector and Signifer of which I have one of each. The Desert Hammers are a faction of Iron Golems that spend their days hunting and overseeing the thralls that roam the deserts of Chamon. They are ruthless in their approach to capture the beasts of the realm and they will take down anyone who attempts to claim the beasts for themselves. This has earned them a fearsome reputation as hardened warriors. Desert Hammers warband roster Raigan Dreadhammer - Dominar Brunn the Chained - Drillmaster Brek Ironlink - Drillmaster Varsk the Defiler - Signifer Grakko the Butcher - Prefector Thavroc Forgestrider - Armator Bhakim Hammercrest - Armator Kos Gorehammer - Ogor Breacher Gruc Goremaw - Ogor Breacher Sald Rageshield - Iron Legionary (Shield) Yoth the Bloody - Iron Legionary (Shield) Thrisskull Twicehammer - Iron Legionary (Twin Hammers) Derrorn Rockcrest - Iron Legionary (Shield) Vakh Irongrip - Iron Legionary (Bolas) Kestrond the Reckless - Iron Legionary (Bolas)
Would appreciate people's thoughts on this one - as the first batch of Warscrolls for the Warcy warbands don't sit very well rules-wise when selecting them for AoS Skirmish games. Basically the Iron Golem / Untamed Beasts / Cypher Lords (and presumably the rest when we get them) force you to take two/three "upgraded" models for every minimum of 8/9 models in the unit. You don't get a choice with this, so to me it doesn't fall within the "weapon options and upgrades" section of selecting a Skirmish force in WD January 2019. Since you also have to take these upgrades, would it still be fair to have to pay the additional 5 Renown each? The way I interpret it (and to use Iron Golem as an example), for the first 3 models taken from a Warscroll you would have to take the forced upgrades and pay the extra Renown for them (so Dominar, then Signifer, then the Ogor Breacher as listed on the Warscroll). If you take 4-8 from that Warscroll then those would be standard non-upgraded models. What do people think?
