>> No.28666398

>the Restless Dead formation is the best thing to ever happen to Fantasy

I dont play fantasy, why is it so good?

>> No.28666637

1) Flavourful wight-themed army without being forced to take necromancers/vampires
2) Marching within 12" of Wight King allows you to separate your forces and hit two places at once, or even just flank your enemy. And it's flavorful - the vampire is sending his most trusted lieutenant to operate semi-independently.
3) Arikan the Black can now take Vampire Counts unit and be a true disciple of Nagash
4) People who want a lot of black knights/grave guard aren't limited by 50% special choices any more
5) Get a BSB without eating into your hero points maximum if you play Vampire Counts
6) The Restless Dead bundle itself is an actual discount from GW.
7) The 5$ pdf contains all the magic items and other rules you need to run the formation, so you don't even need the Vampire Counts book if you're using it as an "allied formation"... Or even STANDALONE.
8) Every army now has access to cheap tarpits (skeletons), killing bow infantry blocks (grave guard), a killy lord (wight king), and killing blow heavy cavalry (black knights)
9) all this is balanced out by the fact that it is a large investment to actually use (you are forced to bring at least 1 wight king, 20 skeletons, 10 graveguard, and 5 black knights, you can't just pick the ones you're interested in, so there will always be SOME dead weight), meaning this is actually pretty damn well balanced for everything it gives
10) brings hope that GW will continue to release Battlescroll formations and/or include them in the armybooks, the rule book, or an expansion book, and we can get REALLY cool formations like Slayer formations, Ogre maneater mercenary formations, etc.

Phew... I think that's... most of it.

>> No.28666739

Also, 11) If I'm remembering rules right, Vampire Counts can now get 2 battle standard bearers...

>> No.28666953

not a fantasyfag but who all can take the formation? is it like the tau one where nearly everyone but the buttmonkey army (poor, poor, nids) could take it?

>> No.28667001

Anyone have the restless dead blackscroll?

>> No.28667082

Literally everybody can, it's just differing levels of alliance. Fantasy has no "Come the Apocalypse" trustiness. Now, this fucks with most armies (if you're enemies, you can't march within a certain distance of eachother. march is, fyi, double speed movement, and it's pretty damn important for most armies.)
That's... that's really the biggest downside.
Dwarfs, though? Dwarfs can march even when there are "enemies" about...

>> No.28670554

To be fair, Space Marines blindly hating their Emperor-sanctioned Human Space Telephones, as well as the Navigators who keep their ships from crashing into warp storms and exploding, was pretty retarded. Not wanting to have psykers in their ranks and hating the shit out of unsanctioned and xenos psykers is one thing, but hating guys who have the official Emperor Seal of Approval just because is dumb.

>> No.28670610

But BT didnt hate, they were tolerated as useful tools, less than human mutant scum that must be overworked to death, for the Emperor.

But no, now we fucking revere psykers..THANKS GW FOR DOING A COMPLETE 180 ON THE FLUFF!

No, because the rule of the vampire general is an armywide special rule from the VC's armybook, it has nothing to do with the Undead rule, and it is not listed in the Battlescroll, nor does it say in any place the Battle Formations use their army's armywide rules.

except for, you know, losing nearly an entire company of imperial fists, and nearly getting TPKed by a Harlequin.

Goto gave us THE LYKHOSIDAE, which seems to have been an attempt to write in a Phoenix Lord of the Warp Spiders - though being a spooky statue that eats little Eldar boys to power up is perhaps a bit off target.
He also finished his Eldar book with a loli Farseer having her eyes and ears and tongue and nose gouged out before being consoled by a Slaaneshi Farseer who wants to tap those face holes mmmm gurl

So yeah, there's bad writing and then there's Goto's brand of insanity.

>> No.28677768

However, Formations follow the Allied Armies rules (p 136-137). Allied Armies are each allowed to have BSBs. Allied Armies of the same book are allowed to benefit from eachother's battle standards.

The only thing that pissed me off is that the Legion of the Damned can't hurt the Avatar.

For fuck sake, dude. The Damned burn with the flame of their faith in the Emperor. The blessed fires born from the devotion to the Emperor should have triumphed over the heathen flames of a weakling Xenos godling.

Shit nigga, I never use battle standards at all, but running a that WK with a Battle Standard and getting stuck in with the enemy unit that he HATES... that's 2 less crumble. Put my own BSB in there (if that's allowed) and it's 3 less crumble every time we crumble. Suck it, combat res!

As I read it, formations count as a distinct army, so one-per-army things like magic items and standards go right out the window. Main force = VC, take your normal 35 graveguard+Banner of barrows, but your killy lord in it.
Take a Restless Dead formation, 20 skeletons, 5 black knights, 35 Grave Guard... give them the Banner of Barrows for THEIR "army", make the Wight King killy...

I'm sorry, but the Allied Formations rule only works for Formations not chosen from the same armybook.

Formations do not have to be chosen from the same army book as the rest of your army.

follow the rules for Allied Armies on pages 136-139 of the Warhammer rulebook.

So, I'd been thinking of getting into fantasy, as I've got like 30 square bases lying around from conversions. I'd been considering Bretonnia, Empire, or VC, leaning towards a LOTR style Wight army.

Is this a way to do it? And would you recommend getting into Fantasy and if so what army?

>> No.28682071

So do they all get a special rule?

>> No.28682144

First, I would suggest joining us in the WHFB general, which is basically Vampire Count themed right now. It's here
(I hope I did cross-thread linking right)

Secondly, this could certainly get you started. A good thing about it is it basically takes away most of the choices and streamlines to a very basic, themed list. Perfect for people who could easily get overwhelmed by all the options. Instead of having to choose "oh, do I want a vampire lord, or a necromancer lord. Do I want core zombies or ghouls... Blood Knights or Varghulfs?" The list says
"You. You take these. This is now your army. Learn the game, and expand from here."

>> No.28682362

(And you did)
Any advice on converting?
