These faggots are the worst Pestilens unit, worst Skaven unit, and a contender for worse Chaos unit

But it's more due to terrible design than pts costs, of course if they were like 30 pts for 5 instead of 60 you could overlook their shittiness

Skaven have several solid 5 guys for 60 pts type units, and Censer bearers are sadly at the very bottom of the pile

Regenerate one model when you have five wounds a model is essentially having Regen 5 per hero phase, which can be increased to 10-15-20wnds per hero phase. It's ridiculous. You have to pound everything you have into them and pray they all die.

It adds up to their points cost in an appropriate way. Give them a teleport and it's either at least 200 points for the Vexillor or more for hammerstrike, putting them at 640 minimum, which at that point a unit that expensive should be a serious threat to anything in the game.

I have seen tournaments play at 1000, 1500, and 2000 points. I have also seen local "Start Collecting" tournaments that only have the SC boxes.

Illegal is what it looks like. You have 4 Artifacts despite only being allowed 3. You also need a second Bloodstoker as the one you have cannot fill requirements for both of your Battalions. Toss the Exalted Deathbringer and include a second 'stoker.
Then, you want to toss the Wrathmongers and Skullgrinder for another Bloodsecrator and more Skullreapers, add them onto one of the existing Skullreaper units. That 10 man unit will now want Daemonblades. Seriously, they do absolutely disgusting damage, especially if there's a Bloodstoker around to whip those self-harm mortal wounds away.
And then, if you want to use this list competitively, you'll want to throw something out in order to include a Skull Cannon or two.

In fact, if you want this list to be effective on a tournament level, you will either want to toss the entire Skulltake Battalion and get MOAR Bloodreavers or toss the Dark Feast to include some Skull Cannons and some more resilient Battlelines like Gors or Blood Warriors.

>> No.49526600

>>49523885
Aside from what the other anon mentioned, I have a few points:

Why did you make the Bloodsecrator your general?

Your army is just a pile of melee with low Rend and poor mobility. Any kind of defensive line will shut you down completely - how do you plan on beating Saurus Guard, Stonehorn, or Kurnoth Hunters? Bastiladon? Phoenixes? How do you plan on dealing with artillery?

The only armies this list can beat is other pure melee armies.

With proper buffs, Skeleton Warriors can basically eat most anything. Build them with spears for the extra range, and run them in blocks of 40. I use a Tomb King as my general, with the command trait that gives a 5+ instead of a 6+ to wounds and mortal wounds. Keep a Wight King close by, use the Necromancer's spell when it's your turn, and mystic shield when it's your opponents. Also, use the Liche priest's spell. That means that you now have a unit with 3 attacks per model, a 2" 3+ 4+ attack, with each hit roll of a 6 causing an extra attack. On your turn, they can pile in and attack twice. When they get hit, they have a 5+ against rend - wounds, or a 4+ with Mystic Shield. They then get a 5+ against every unsaved wound, and then a 6+ when they die. If you have a Mourngul, keep that in front of them, as enemy units will now either hit with a -1 or -2 debuff, depending on their bravery. After all that, they get d6 models back during your hero phase. I also play to get at least 2 tomb heralds, and a Necrotect.

In my experience liberators have earned themselves the title of fantastic tarpits. All the games I've played, liberators rarely kill their points value , however they are able to tie up entire sections of armies simply because they won't die. By chain buffing them (hits on 3 wound on 2, 2+ save reroll 1's, 5 heals) they become borderline unkillable to anything that isn't mortal wounds while slowly chipping away at the enemy. Due to sigmars shoot into combat rule I'm not so heavily reliant on melee units getting the kills, instead allowing the expensive judicators to pick units apart or carve them up with paladins. If I had more points I'd include some dracothian guard, but storm cast are am expensive army

>> No.49536768

Yeah I like liberators, especially 10 man + blobs of them.

What army would let you field a formation like that? Well, there's a lot really, it depends on what you're looking for.

Do you want your infantry and cav to do more of the work? Go orcs, take arrer boys and boar riders.

Do you want better shooting with the infantry being there mostly to shield the shootybootymen? Free peoples or elves.

You wanna say "fuck that, fuck you, and fuck anything that gets anywhere near my weapons or my guns, and my cav will absolutely fuck you up, but pls no hit back." Go ogres.

Wanna field shittons of expendable dudesmen that all equally suck but still get the job done through sheer numbers? Goblins or undead.

ironbreakers are better tanks that warriors, but warriors are decent at it as long as they have shieldwall.

I'd allow it. It'd have to be something that had gone on for a while, though.

It makes sense.

Anyone has tips on how to deal with wood elfs and chaos using dwarfs? We play 1500-2000pts normaly, objectives games most of the time, we also run some house rules to limit the number of shoting units, and warmachines. This was done as a balacing thing to make people stop bringing units after unit of range dudes. No more then 10% of the list can be armed with range weapons with a ranger longer then 7", and while it worked great for our small community as a whole, it kind of a nerfed my dwarfs. Because when other people moved on to cavalery and monsters, my army has no access to any of those. It is mostly a speed factors, specialy vs wood elfs with their whole board of wood, I just can't reach objectives fast enough, and offten have to use bad units like gyrocopters just to contest stuff.

I like it.

Make one of your white lions into korhil (compendium warscroll). Just beef him up with bits and have him stand on something so he stands out from the rest of the army. Or just about any high elf hero will do too.

For battleline, the elf factions are hurting right now because they havent gotten an update, and there are very few elf options for battleline. If you want to stick with the elf theme, you will have to look into the darkling covens. bleakswords, darkshards, and dreadspears are all battleline.

If not, stormcast eternal liberators with shields are good solid battleline units and they are willing to ally with any order faction, so it fits with the fluff to have them ally with your white lions. And they are cheap right now as they come in their own cheap box sets and the starter set.

For Fantasy i'll give you that. Soulgrinders don't work, the steam-punk aspect is downplayed, Chaos dwarves basically didn't exist, skaven show more restraint, until ET at least and more importantly, the model is too big, loud and has no base.

But in Aos it's the perfect unit.

We fully embrace fuckhueg models, and it's lack of a base makes use of the model-to-model measuring. Finally we now have magical Lightning warriors, and soon fully steam-based Dwarves with golems and shit, SG's fit into the 'who gives a fuck it's metal' theme that aos has going

Meaning your entire army must be only that faction for those to be battelines. So by taking white lions, those ones you listed are NOT battlelines. That's why I suggested the darkling covens units, because they are battlelines regardless of what factions you are taking.

Correct. You have to have all of your units come from one of the four Grand Alliances, Order, Chaos, Death or Destruction. Therefore you can always have allegiance for that alliance.

If your entire army is from one faction, you have the option to choose the allegiance of that faction, or the allegiance of the grand alliance.

For example, you can run a Skryre list with some moulder shit, like Stormfiends and a hell pit, but taking a hell pit forsakes the Skryre allegiance, so you HAVE to take a chaos battleline (warriors of chaos, clanrats). If you drop the hell pit, the Stormfiends are battleline for a Skryre exclusive list.

So you have to pay battleline tax. If you do an exclusive list to use the better battleline from that faction, that's allowed. Dipping into multiple factions means you have to fetch battleline that isn't exclusive to the unique factions.

It should be noted that the errata has provided a single way around this - if a warscroll battalion has units from multiple allegiances in it, the units in it all count as having the allegiance of whatever category it's under. This allows that Sylvaneth + Stormcast battalion to be part of a Sylvaneth allegiance army.

This isn't very common, though - the only factions I can think of that have these mixed-faction battalions are the Sylvaneth and Everchosen, and the latter don't have a lot of Matched-play-legal ones, afaik.

It's a flexible way of doing core tax without being too restrictive. Even units within battalions can count as battlelines. I wish 40k did it this way.

Also note the aos model range is not complete. When they get around updating all the factions, we will see more battlelines and allegiance options. So right now it sucks a little, but i think gw made it with future plans in mind.

Look into the dragon sorc and Lord, I haven't checked out their list. Maybe Tyrion or Teclis?

I personally run a dragon cavalry list, so I don't know much about those large buffs. There's a mage that has a ward save bubble somewhere.

Keep in mind that you have access to all order units, so if you want, get some glade guard, paint them like you're painting your high elves and profit from having some of the best base shooty units in the game. Your battleline is the spear dweebs, so maybe rolling some glade guard or Judicators would be beneficial, since they also count as battleline.

It could probably still happen, as a lot of rumors are based in truth. Like the steam dwarfs, that seems pretty solid and think it is likely to happen, but people just assumed September.

Again, right now there is a 40k spree going on right now, and we likely won't see aos stuff until the spring. You have to remember that in the summer it was all aos all the time, and 40k was feeling left out. It's fine though, taking breaks like this gives the meta a chance to catch up and settle.

Look, I apologise for my tone, you're quite right I was being a massive cunt and I am sorry, I don't really know why I flew off the handle like that and made such a shitty post.

Please believe me though, there are genuine mechanical reasons why a digital camera, even one with Equal or Greater "Megapixels" will not take as high quality photographs as a DSLR, there are far more factors in play than simple megapixels.

A fixed focus, fixed aperture quarter-size phone CCD simply can not do things that something beefier with a full size CCD can, despite having more pixel area.

The CCD is the component of most digital cameras which is actually light sensitive, it is the part which the lens focuses the light onto in order for it to be registered. It's closest analogue in a film camera would be the film itself. A very important component and unfortunately there are NO mobile phones available with a full size CCD.

This is a typical warscroll. You'll see the weapons stats on the top, with movement, bravery (instead of leadership) wounds and saves.
Heroes are more of a support base that buffs your core troops more than a big beatstick (except the monster riders, who are beatsticks) who synergises buffs and debuffs. Almost all troops work off each other in some way, instead of just building them up in big blocks and sending them up the middle of the board.
Example is a necromancer, wight king and a unit of 20 skeletons with spears. Basic skellies are one attack each which hit on 5+. If the wight is your general and uses his command ability, gives +1 attack to the skellies, and a unit of skeletons gain +1 attack each per 10 in the unit, and +1 to hit for beinh near a keyword Death hero. Necromancer can magic them to attack twice.
So instead of a weak block of 20 skeletons with one attack and 5+ hit, you can get skeletons with 3 attacks each hitting on 4's, attacking twice. That's the kind of strategic synergy you can build in AoS.

I can relate

Everyone at my local store just keeps pouring attacks into my Bastiladon. Instead of retreating their units they just keep them locked in melee for the entire game...

Nobody brings artillery or any kind of deep strike units. They all just clash in the middle of the table and roll dice brainlessly until the game ends.

I have lost 2 games in 6 months. Feels bad man.

Do you have Settra?

You need Settra.

Tomb Kings is top tier but only if you use Settra.

In AOS all the Order factions regularly ally together to fight back against Death/Destruction/Chaos. Azyrheim is a city built by the combined efforts of Humans, Elves, and Dwarves.

AOS is all about Your Dudes so your high elf can ally with whoever you want, just make up a reason.

Anyone know what would make a good bretonnian paladin? I have been needing to convert/buy/get one for a while now.

Make sure your phone camera is set to macro mode for getting in close.

Have light sources above and to the sides of the model.

Have either a solid white, or solid black backdrop (like buy a sheet of black or white posterboard)

Those 3 steps alone will improve your photos tremendously.

Let me put it this way, a lot of AoS players are hoping 40k gets the same treatment fantasy got, and for many good reasons.

Wargames foundry early medieval foot knights (set 1,2 and 3) are actually old GW (80's) foot knight sculpts. Should be perfectly legal to use in GW shops even.

You know I read your thread of responses and those replies, and I have an idea that you are a good photographer that knows his stuff about photography.

But you're still a cunt. That's the problem here.
