Started off in an escalation for a new LGS that has opened up in town. Starting at 500 points and increasing weekly to 2000 using the Mighty Empires rules.

I'm doing Gloomspite, managed to win a game which I REALLY shouldn't have won against Fyreslayers. Used Hand of Gork to teleport my 40 grots and suicide into his backlines and tie him up, his dwarves (only used hearthguard, vulkites and the priest) were too slow to get to objectives so I took some early points and by the time he got to my side of the board, I had gotten half my grots back with my Loonshrine so they got tarpitted again while the squigs either took objectives or ate dwarf ass.

I know there's 3 Fyreslayers, 3 Seraphon and 3 StD players in the group, with 16 players total. What am I in for?

Fyreslayers are mostly gonna play the same. The Seraphon players could go a couple of different ways, though expect lots of magic.

>> No.74147710


I see the point with AoS original characters, but that's mostly down to special characters for AoS being little more than models so far. They don't have decades of lore and novels and campaign events around them, they're just 3 paragraph (at best) blurbs in their respective battletomes.

Of course no one is a raving Brokk fanboy, the most characterization he's ever had were two sentences in the new KO book where he broke off all relations with Greywater Fastness.

In time some of the special characters will get development, and some of them will remain nobodies. Teclis and Tyrion had a trilogy written about them, Korhil and Caradryan, not so much.

It'll almost certainly be Order vs Destruction, to complete the cycle.

I have a hard time picturing what a Destruction focus would mean outside of narrative, though. Like Death before 2nd edition was fucking nothing, they had two battletomes and loN only just before.

So a heavy focus on Nagash, rolling out Nighthaunt and OBR and maybe slipping in Vampires either before or after the next edition, totally revitalized what used to be a 2 army faction barely anyone played.

Destruction though...New Ironjawz in the starter, almost definitely. Gloomspite already got their big update, Gargants will be out before then...that really just leaves Ogors and/or new Destruction armies which would be kinda shocking.

I'm gonna say Bug People from Beastgrave and Grotbag Scuttlers as the new armies, maaaaaybe Ogors get like two new models. We'll see.

They get a terrain feature but its mobile - it's a mini cogfort that you can put up to 10 dudes in and they can shoot out. Aesthetically this would be wheeled underneath but have piston driven legs which can dig into the surrounding ground to pull it along/anchor it in place.

They get a unit of steam-powered handgunners (no gay cables, they have pressure canisters under the arquebuses that can be refilled by connecting to a tap like thing on the side of their backpacks. This ties into steam tanks - if they're within range they can use the pressure to boost their range or their to wound characteristic, at the cost of the tank using its More Pressure! rule - it's like the gunners are borrowing pressure from the tank's boiler.

They get regular knights back

It doesn't look the chaos halberd

the chaos halberd is fully hooked upward underneath, whereas the RE one is just gently recurved and has a vampire counts style spike at the back

all of the hallmarks point to death, it's all the same as nighthaunt style weapons. Same fineness, same pitting, same flanges, not to mention other blatant death rumour engines that we've had recently. All of this adds up to it not being chaos and it being death

Genestealer cults are a satire of leftists, Imperium is a satire of soviet union / nazi germany (it has commissars ffs). GW designers have modelled Tau on the Indian Caste system and the Chinese Celestial hierarchy.

It's smaller than whfb's 30y old community, but it isn't a small community by any means. About half the people playing wouldn't be playing their army if they didn't like the lore.

Not quite, since it uses a very different ruleset to AoS compared to KT and 40k, but it serves the same purpose. It's kind of like necromunda, too, if you use the warcry chaos bands.

No. It's got a pretty different rule-set to AoS, but it's just a nice way to buy a box of models and play with them, making it so you can take your time hobbying. It's pretty fun honestly.
>Should I just buy a starter set and battle tome?
And the Generals Handbook. Or you can download everything here in the mega. Preferably do both.
>are there any stupidly broken armies I should avoid?
Due to Covid and the new generals handbook changing things up a lot we don't have enough data to determine what s broken right now. Though faggots will shove their "objectively correct" tier lists down your throat at the first chance, so watch out.
There are some armies that will have gotten bumped down from S tier for sure, but it's likely that they are still very strong.
>Ty 40k fag here im used to broken retarded shit
Traditionally AoS has had 1-2 armies that are broken at any time, but still a very healthy A and B tier where the A-tier can definitely compete and beat the S-tier net-lists.
Also tiers are sometimes determined because the faction has a couple of strong lists, but isn't actually that bad to fight outside those lists. Though more often than not it is the case that the whole army has too many good tools, or is just universally strong.

KO's shtick is that they are completely anti-magic though. They get to ally in SCE for magic, but even if chaos KO could sort of happen there is no way chaos SCE would.
You could go the traditional Dawi Zharr route where they have forge-summoned deamons into their endrins, and just power everything with deamon-juice instead of aethergold.

I feel like bravery and combat phase activation are the only major points I hope are reworked for 3rd ed, whenever that happens. I have other rules changes I want, but those are the worst offenders.

>> No.74150871

I think battleshock should, isntead of killing extra models if you fail the test, force the unit to retreat. Armies with good bravery still have better chances of succeeding, but everyone's equally affected by it. It also makes morale a lot more important since it would allow units to flee the battlefield without the need of grinding through them and push units out of objectives without having to kill every single model. This, in turn, allows units to have their lethality lowered, so we stop having deathstar units that spit out mortal wounds or tons of attacks that can kill off a whole unit in a single turn, or at least makes them a lot more rare and impactful.

>> No.74150886

Same. The core rules are really solid, just those two things could use some adjusting. My main problems with AoS are how warscrolls and point costs work, which are things bolted on top of the core rules and can be changed independently of them anyways.

I really wish warscrolls and points costs just became 100% digital so they could be adjusted according to all the weird fumbles the AoS rules team has.

They already are, unlike 40k's. They are all free and availible on the app and on the webstore. There's zero reason why GW wouldn't take the opportunity of the new edition to overhaul and rewrite every single warscroll without the need of the index/codex situation that happened in 8th edition 40k.

>> No.74151035

Points costs are stuck in the books because GW is afraid that no one will buy the GHB without points for example(people will because of the battleplans and matched play rules updates anyway).
I think they are also pushing the battletomes as an index for everything related to a faction, so that includes the warscrolls that they don't want to change to invalidate that section in the book.

>> No.74151797

I can understand that, but it already happens. We have errata that changes warscrolls right now. That's not any different from changing the actual warscroll. In fact, changing the warscroll is better, because you can just head over the app, see the updated warscroll and not have to think about checking any erratas to see if something has changed.

>> No.74151936

There's two sides to this game, one of them is having 10000 points of golden demon tier self painted converted models and playing in global tournaments. The same people that made that game also want it to be one where a know nothing can buy a $60 kiddy set and play with snap fits out of the box. They're always going to be following along the MTG model, and mtg doesn't change cards. So they decided they're resistant to changing unit cards.

daemon world is a 40k novel though...

Suggestion regarding double turn. I think i've found the best middle ground solution for keeping it for improvised tactics, possibilities for swingy games and rewards for planning for several scenarios.


removing it for increased randomness, making it easier to create a long game strategy and avoid unfair stomps.

The answer is to roll for the turn at the start of the previous turn. You follow?

After setting up, the player who finishes first decides who gets to take turn 1. After deciding this, you roll off for round 2, with the one rolling the highest deciding who takes first turn in round 2.

Then you play turn 1 and 2 in round one. Before starting round 2, you roll off for round 3. and on it goes.

This way, the double turn still exists and can change the game as well as forcing you to plan ahead for multiple scenarios, BUT since you know about the turn order one turn ahead, you at least can plan accordingly to mitigate a double turn or create a plan spanning several rounds ahead.
