Doubt you're gonna see it in tournaments or whatever but it's a reasonably cheap battalion and it can make multi-charges nasty. Run a chariot and a unit of knights into something and you're likely to do 5-6 mortals before combat even starts.

So 7x5 Ardboys is 14 attempts so 10-13 mw.

Maybe I'm underestimating it's worth? Lots of investment but in big waaagh and a warboss all the units hit on 2+/2+rr1s to wound so it's not like big unit sizes help buffs. Like 13+2d3 mw from the weirdfist will just wipe 400+pts off the board, right?

Neither. For your own sanity and wallet play an actually supported AoS army.
Individual CoS factions do not work on their own and they all are webstore exclusive. You'll be paying ridiculous amounts of money for an army that will only disappoint you.
Also dispossessed lost tons of units and personality with the squatting, the units that are left pretty much look like a clone army.

you can easily make an army entirely of !not empire factions (freeguild, ironweld, collegiate) and have it work very competitively

Sadly this guy is right. I almost fell for it too but i got smart before pulling the trigger.

CoS is not a horrible codex but almost all the units are webstore exclusive. Which means you are stuck paying full price on the webstore for old units that could use a facelift.

>Warriors are no longer battleline, they are allies

You are retarded. Warriors, Marauaders and a lot of units in Slaves to darkness can be given the tzeentch keyword when added to your army. Because of that, they arent allies, but part of your army, as the keyword you need in a Tzeentch army is just <Tzeentch>.

Absolutely mind controlled by GW. GW is doing better game wise but price wise they have gone off the complete deep end.

>> No.71142578


yes but apparently if people get any 3rd party models they may as well not play GW games because they are "damaging the hobby". My point, you dumb fuck, is that GW are still getting profit from everyone who plays and the % of people who use 3rd party enough for it to actually matter (outside of people who perhaps buy a cheesecake or cool looking proxy for their generals) is fucking TINY.

If you want to cry about people who genuinely ruin your army, go attack people who play recasted armies, and even then, if they have a single actual GW model, they've still contributed more than nothing to the hobby.

Thematic armies seem cool until you play a game and go "wow that unit was shit/ really underperformed / lost me the game because I could have taken a different unit".

At best cheap factions can give you an average of 6pts/$usd so a little less than $400 for a 2k army with the right faction(though a lot of armies can double this price).

I would recommend Maggotkin of Nurgle. They have two start collecting, one for their mortals the Rotbringers and one for their demons and with 2 you get either
>2 Lord of Blights
>10 putrid Blightkings
>4 Pusgoyl Blightlords
>2 Plaguebringers of nurgle
>20 Plaguebearers
>6 Nurglings
>6 Plaguedrones
Both 1000 pts dead on and 2 of each on a third party site can be as cheap as £70-85. You can even get two of each and start a game with the Rotbringers but overtime you generate 'corruption points' which you can spend to summon in the demons for free.
They aren't the most competitive army, though far from the bottom, but they have a large roster of models, are forgiving for beginner painters -especially with contrast paints- they are easy to learn and play and if you really like them they have fun stuff like taking STD chaos warriors in for example.

They look isn't for everyone but its cheap way to start with a serviceable army that just got some fun stuff in everchosen and might even be getting a new book by the end of the year to make them even better.

Very long story short he was a Random Blacksmith from Ghyran whos sister was taken in a huge rotbringer raid for their summoning pits and when he finally found them his sister wasnt a usual sacrifice but turned into a 'maggot queen' that existed just to birth plague grubs and the like. Never to be human again but also not able to die. So he kind of breaks and vows to stay by her side forever and nurgles like "i respect that, you're a good guy, welcome to the club" and makes him a Blight King that acts as an incubator for his sisters grubs that turn into plagueflies like this fucked up way to try and generate things like plague drones faster.

Kazalek Endyr, Lord of the Manor, is my Knight of Shrouds on ethereal steed; in life, he was the eldest Prince of his realm, and was once a paragon of justice. Born at the onset of the Soul wars, he was a gifted duelist and battlefield marshal; many campaigns were won through his bold and daring maneuvers, and despite him hiding a terrible rage that only was glimpsed during the thickest fighting, he belied a gentle and chivalrous demeanour.

That changed, however, when his brother was chosen to succeed his slain father as king, due to his mastery over war. For every narrow victory snatched from defeat by Kazalek, it was only by his brothers strategic planning and statecraft that such wars were won, and despite Kazalek's multiple attempts to lead a campaign, he lacked the finesse. Frustrated from being denied a title he had sought for so long, he moved his attentions to the seemingly endless war with Chaos, and now the undead.

However, his hatred and bitterness only grew as the war turned against him. His brother, having believed that Kazalek was too rash, called for him to retreat. His pride wounded, Kazalek returned, and accused his brother of being corrupted. Whether it was true or not, those Knights loyal to Kazalek quickly executed the ruling court. But what started as a trial spiraled into a slaughter of the capital city. Here, Kazalek held a vicious, decadent court, until approached by a strange man, bedecked in a burial shroud. Congratulating him for his crowning, the man revealed himself to be an agent of Nagash, offering patronage from the god. And as Chaos circled the capital, Kazalek agreed. The man herded the Knights and nobles into a phantsamal manor, where they fought the agents of Chaos who sought to corrupt it, and in the manor's great ball room, as Kazalek and what loyal followers remained, were inducted into the ranks of the Nighthaunt

Is the idea for the Flayers to be summoned?
Otherwise drop them and add a couple of Ghasts.

Why not? Kazalek likes to keep up the facade that he's this gentleman and tactical mastermind of sorts; but in reality, he's this brutal, field marshal of sorts. So of course he'll ride through the manor on his steed, so as to better hunt down those who intrude; it's not like he's gonna knock anything over.

More likely this it's just wallet fatigue season. Holidays+valentines take their toll and the wallstreet suits just see all consumers as the same and don't see the demographics that don't burn all their money on festive obligations so they just slow everything down this time of year.
