    So a tzeentch marked slaves to darkness wizard can cast the tzeentch endless spells.

    I know Nurgle doesn't have any and Khornes are prayers tied to his allegiance ability. Are the Slaanesh ones tied to the Slaanesh or Hedonite keyword?

    They need to sell a 12-pack of Chaos Spawns to go with the new Tzeentch book.

    Yeah I'll go Great Weapons. I happen to have 10 of each.

    My only other thought was chopping the GG entirely for more skellies + a Wight King. It's probably better to have 2 heroes but what I got sounds more fun to play.

    I'm gonna give it a test run Sunday.

    You don't really need 2 heroes at 500 points. When you get more points to play with, I'd definitely add a Wight King to the mix to give a unit more attacks. With your list, you really just need to keep your necromancer in range of the skeletons/grave guard for resurrections and for danse macabre on the grave guard when they're ready to strike.

    Any Chaos Slaanesh Wizard can attempt to cast the Slaanesh endless spells. (Which does weirdly preclude the existence of Slaanesh Wizards without the Chaos keyword, but okay...)

    I saw an interesting Slaanesh list earlier using Archaon now that he has the Hedonites keyword, which looks very entertaining to run, but I don't know that I'd wanna shell out the cash just for an entertaining gimmick!

    Considering how many games, settings, factions and subfactions they’re in, Spawn and Princes could really use a nice modern kit

    I don't dislike the spawn kit for what it is, but the daemon prince one isn't great. Fortunately you can convert them from just about anything, I suppose.

    Yeah the advantage of daemon princes and spawns is the conversion possibilities are very high

    While cleaning I found I had a lizardman army? [two bags of saurus and sninks as well as a metal Carnosaur and Old one
    But looking at Gw's site I think they are going to get a update at least a new army book

    So, this guy to become the new hunter model basically.

    On a similar note, if you can grab Zarbags gitz, the models in there work great as a shaman and a loonboss, for cheaper than separately.

    I hope they're not too 'high' high elves, I like AoS most when they can really push the design out to extremes, but there is an interesting angle with Teclis able to create his own 'ideal' society from the ground up, with all the fatal hidden flaws I'd expect from such a thing!

    I got to play a sneaky little AoS game this afternoon, my local store had to downsize its table space so I've not had much chance to play above 1000pts in weeks, so it was nice to get a more full list on the table.
    Katakros is smaller than I imagined he was!

    Damn. That cloak on the Keeper.

    Regarding high elves. Well they weren't that high to begin with often even back in Fantasy. Lots of arrogance and intrigues and a bunch of dark cults under the surface with the swordmasters fighting a secret war against them and such.

    On the model side it would be nice if they went back to the really old metal models for inspiration a bit,which judging by the concept art they used for the trailers they might do, when high elves weren't quite as clean and regimemted but had a bunch of models with fur cloaks and feathers and such.

    I meant more visually really, lore-wise I'm head-canon-ing half the time anyway, I'd prefer it if this new army did not look like a WHFB army with updated sculpts, essentially, I'd rather see a new space explore. Not that I'm particularly bothered, the AoS mini designers have been knocking out of the park with every release.

    Thank you for the complements! It's certainly the mini I'm most proud of doing so far, though I'm glad the Slaanesh nerfs mean I don't need three of them anymore, it took quite a while to paint!

    I had my brother watch it. He is curious but said from the drawings and the silhouette it looks like a hybrid of dark/high elves. The silhouette has some looks in common with the dark elf sorcerer.

    But he is happy not all of his armies are doomed to history. Still like he said he wants to know more about them and if the satyr elves

    The keeper looks awesome.

    I feel for you with the bonercasts. Doing that effect for rank and file troops must be something.

    With pointy eaelves being teased, I'm tempted to go and try something like the old high elf army book covers with the blue armour. With contrast over metal that could look interesting.

    So, I am finalizing my Mawtribe. I am split at 2k points, do I keep a group of 12 ogors, and have a group of 2/2 mournfang packs, or 2 groups of 6 ogors and a 4 group of mournfangs? I thought a group of 4 mournfangs would be too hard to maneuver in combat, and the 12 group of ogors would give a good first charge bonus for MW's.

    Here's the list right now, this is literally the only models I own besides an extra tyrant.
    Allegiance: Ogor Mawtribes
    - Mawtribe: Bloodgullet


    Leaders
    Butcher (140)
    - Tenderiser
    - Lore of Gutmagic: Blood Feast
    Butcher (140)
    - Cleaver
    - Lore of Gutmagic: Greasy Deluge
    Frostlord on Stonehorn (400)
    - General
    - Trait: Nice Drop of the Red Stuff!
    - Artefact: Splatter-cleaver
    - Mount Trait: Metalcruncher
    Tyrant (160)
    - Big Name: Fateseeker (TBD, I'm not 100% on this)

    Battleline
    2 x Mournfang Pack (140)
    - Gargant Hackers
    2 x Mournfang Pack (140)
    - Gargant Hackers
    12 x Ogor Gluttons (400)
    - Pairs of Clubs or Blades

    Units
    1 x Ironblaster (240)
    1 x Ironblaster (240)
    4 x Leadbelchers (160)

    Endless Spells / Terrain / CPs
    Balewind Vortex (40)

    Total: 1960 / 2000
    Extra Command Points: 0
    Allies: 0 / 400
    Wounds: 141

    I'm 40 points short, what extra endless spell should I include if any? Is there any reason to put the ironblasters together? I feel like the amount of drops is going to kill me either way.

    I think 2/2 on Mournfangs with a 12 model block of Gluttons will probably be your best shot, though if it's an option I find Mournfang tend to perform best with the ironfist weapon option rather than the big swords, especially as two model dart units.

    Don't forget your wizards can choose an extra spell each in the Bloodgullet tribe too. For endless spell points fillers Prismatic Pallisade is an interesting tool to have in a list, though a little unreliable at its intended function due to how easy it is to dispel. Soulsnare Shackles can be handy too, allowing you to lock a non-flying monster in place.

    I'm not sold on Ironblasters in general (though you could consider taking Blubbergrub Stench as one of your extra spells and using that to supplement their damage output in combat), but I think they only come in units of 1 anyway, so you couldn't drop them together regardless.

    ironblasters are massively overcosted imo

    their point cost is so high because they're a shooting unit that has good melee but doesn't really do well at either and can get bogged down way too easily

    personally I think you're better off taking 3 units of leadbelchers for the same cost

    I am going to redo the flesh as I painted that first and it was gloppy and old {elf flesh of the old citadel paints}

    I want to do the pale demonettes. But doing that on larger models like Azazel would fit but having a sea of white flesh with black armor. I feel I am going to do wild hair colors to just break it up bringing a sense of individuality but a coherent look.

    also, theres one more option(and it's something that I think everybody should know about ogors)

    take a 40 or 60 man squad of gnoblars, use the tyrant command ability on them, then run them to a point and promptly forget about them

    for 200/270 points you essentially hold a point forever unless your opponent commits overwhelming force to dislodge them because it's nearly impossible to kill that man units without battleshock

    They are massively overcosted, I dont really like leadbelchers either, but they're what I got. :) I would consider building a squad of gnoblars from the sprues I got, but I want to avoid literally any kind of horde movement with this force. I already play pestilens and its plague monks all the way down.

    I didnt forget the extra spells, the warscroll builder doesn't make some stuff show up correctly. I'll make those defensive changes to the mournfangs and keep them in a group of 2/2.

    I'm not a big fan of belchers either, but the do a pretty good job of shoring up flanks

    I could actually take a second tyrant over the 4 leadbelchers, but I'm not 100% thats the smart move and 4 bodies would be better than the 1 in this case.

    steam_sig.png
  • Halos Nach TariffHalos Nach Tariff Can you blame me? I'm too famous.Registered User regular
    Yeah, I don't see much value in running two tyrants at present, one is okay for the CA, but in your list you only have the one unit to bully and his combat power is a bit too swingy to double down on. Leadbelchers aren't, like, incredible or anything, but they can do some work still.

    I have the full set of the eldar dice I just use them for wound markers and for psychic stuff. I got the squid dice but I have yet to use them you can feel they are bouncy in the package. I feel if I got anymore of the themed dice I will just use them for markers like I do with the eldar ones

    the squig dice are a neat over-costed gimmick that are HORRIBLE to actually use

    I love them a bunch though
