It's still shit, but now you don't have to pretend to have a stache.
Instead you have to buy the free points terrain or be gimped and also your faction's spell templates, and don't forget your lists are still as anemic as always despite condensing several books into 1 for many armies.

Yeah I was going to give you all the marauder bits including the heads. If you prefer I can include some spare chaos warrior heads so you can keep it consistant. I have the bases but I forgot to take a picture of the bases but I have them. The manticors second rider is primed a chariot is primed, archaon is primed and has some base layers painted on. The rider on the warshine is primed and I put a book in his hand instead of an empty hand so you can do some cool tzeench thing with it if you want. harry the hammer is a SUPER cool old model that I forgot I had until I pulled all this stuff out. Its New in box and unbuilt or primed. Its pretty good condition. If you also want a battletome and teh warscroll cards I have them around somewhere

>have more human/aelf couples
Pretty sure they don't. Regardless the point is half-elves being a thing, not the two being couples. There is a slight but very important difference. You can fuck elf pussy but you won't get her pregnant. Half-Elves introduces a lot of issues and starts to muddy the waters. It becomes more like D&D as I said. As I'm sure you're aware, WHFB was essentially just a D&D campaign for 10 years before they became their own thing (with heavy influence). You add half-elves and people want a half-elf faction and you gotta deal with all that stuff. I think GW just wanna keep it simple as possible. Human, elf, dwarf.

3RD EDITION PREDICTION: Its called 'broken realms' because the grand alliances all fall apart and its every race for themselves.

Nagash is dealt a serious blow by chaos and loses control of the nighthaunt, fec and his legions which become the new vampire counts.

Morathi's plans get revealed shattering the trust in the order alliance and people go their seperate ways.

The Silent Ones wake up starting a war of consumption across ghur leading to all out waaagh amongst the forces of destruction.

and Slaanesh being free totally upsets the balance of power amongst the chaos pantheon causing wars for dominance.

3rd edition launches. The grand alliances are dead. Folks have more meaningful alliances like the dwarf soup or sylvaneth and stormcast while others like daughters and seraphon kill each other on sight.

bonus twist: with nagash losing any influence the already loosely influenced flesh eater court become the closest thing to 'good' in an undead faction and even in their delusion become less troglodytic and more knightly/lords and ladies types even though they remain disgusting strigoi.

Hero kit plus any magmadroth kit or start collecting box, maybe replace the Tyrant's spearhead with an axe from the sprue

This is the one I'd probably prefer, but I'm not sure if the lizard would be too small for a tyrant. An irongut might work, but their legs are probably too close together to fit.
All of them would be tossed on a 120mm oval so it could alternately be used for a counts as Frostlord on stonehorn

Any thoughts on the options?

This is the same shit as the faggots posting their dream WARHAMMER 50K: THE END OF THE IMPERIUM with new characters that have dark souls boss names like Old Forgotten King and Vrant, the Craven Lord and dumb shit like that.

Seriously though, part of me likes the idea of the politics of the realms falling apart, but going too hard into that theme just turns it into 40k, which is gay and dumb and a bad idea. Part of why I think AoS works is because you can have different factions and races interacting with more nuance than INFINITE NONSTOP WAR UNTIL THE END OF TIME WHEN CHAOS WINS.

Also, the Necroquake buffed the shit out of Nagash. It wouldn't make any sense for him to suddenly grow considerably weaker so suddenly. However, it would be cool to see FEC turn into like a rebel faction that Nagash keeps trying to bring into line, but they fight too hard for him to fully subdue without "killing" them. Turning FEC into good guys is stupid though and you should feel stupid for suggesting it.

When will elves get delicious tummies like necromunda chads get!?

>> No.74496207

you can magnetize the heads and riders on beastclaw behemoths super easily. not that you would ever take a thundertusk, but its nice to have the option.

i actually do think there is 1 thundertusk build that has some play, but it's situational. you take it with alvugar ancient. then, you keep it in base contact with a unit of ironguts and send them moving around as a single unit. go park them both on an objective and wait for your opponent to come to you and force you off the objective.

a lot of armies dont have ways to deal with a fight last aura vs something that hits as hard as ironguts, and the thundertusk can still participate across the board at range via snowball/vulture/pulverising hailstorm.

i mean obviously there are armies that just wont give a fuck like anything that shoots, or armies that fight out of phase like ironjawz

>> No.74496268

Its more expensive than that since you want units to summon. The actual cheapest playable army is probably three beast claw raiders SC made into a 2k Eurlbad.

>> No.74496303

I feel like the thundertusk would best work with a range list that primarily focuses on leadbelchers and ironblasters/scrap launchers, helping to intercept enemy fast movers that target the artillery

>> No.74496400

FL on Thundertusk really isn't that bad statistically. Its very hard to kill if you take rimefrost hide and does decent damage that isn't reliant on charging.

>> No.74496433

tried it. it's crap. leadbelchers are still better at fighting than they are at shooting, and thats even with the underguts bonus helping them out.

ironblasters and scrap launchers simply do not hit hard enough and the ironblaster is too short range to really have any meaningful impact. the stonehorns project threat across the table just as quickly and do far more damage and have far more survivability for the points, and also count as more models for scoring and are rewarded for being up field on objectives. the artillery is just too weak and are dead weight.

the whole point of the alvagar thundertusk build is that it doesnt mind getting up the field and being on an objective, still lends some ranged firepower which is actually fairly usable against infantry or clumped units, its tough to put down and can heal itself, and it grants a very useful support aura to your better ogres

but you would never take the thundertusk without alvagar ancient. without that, it simply isnt useful enough to just be an artillery piece. the point of the fights last aura combo'd with the ironguts is that it counters some of their counters, namely "fights first" assholes, and other forced "fights last" stuff like slaanesh

Is destruction just dogshit at this point? it feels like they got really left behind this year.

>> No.74496503

its a lot worse. forstlord on thundertusk vs frostlord on stonehorn both have the same spear profile, so you are trading 6 attacks at 4s and 3s -2 flat 3 damage and d6 attacks 3s and 2s -1 d3 damage for just 4 attacks 3s and 2s -1 d3 damage and blasts of frost wreathed ice. yes the thundertusk has -1 to hit, but the stonehorn has stone skeleton which is effectively 30% damage mitigation from all sources, including mortals and ranged. blast of frost wreathed ice gets you at best 6 mortals VS a unit with 20 or more models, and significantly less against anything else.

thats not taking into account the stonehorns extra 4" of speed, +1 damage on the charge, or black clatterhorn/metal cruncher and the impact dice from being much more likely to get the charge off on your opponent with your much higher speed

no. mawtribes are in a healthy spot, not top tables but far from the bottom, and i would say about 60% of their units are good, which is more than a lot of armies can say. it just happens that their artillery (and yetis and frostsabers and maneaters and the hunter) arent among them.

ironjawz do regularly (or did) take top tables and are very strong, with bonesplitters still seeing decent mid table play due to the strength of the great waaagh

gloomspite are in a very rough spot because of 2 issues that are specific. one is easily fixable and the other is not. the first, is points. a unit of stabbas clocks in at 360 points which is about the highest premium any army pays for a disposable 6+ save chaff unit, nevermind the highly expensive support units needed to make them work (140 per 5 wounds of fanatics, 70 for a loonboss, another 90 for a shaman, 70 for snufflers, etc etc etc), and other units like troggs, spiders, and squigs are all still quite overcosted. the second problem, and this is the hard one, is that their army is HIGHLY reliant on random mechanics such as the moon, fanatics, virtually all squig units speed. i mean take a look at boingrot bounders and compare them to black knights, both are armored charge based cavalry. black knights are in a slow army but still have flat speed 12. bounders can spike as high as 12 with double 6s, but otherwise average 7 and can get as low as 2. given that GW considers the random aspect of the army to be a key feature and not a bug, this will not be fixed any time soon and makes them undependable as fuck, thus uncompetitive short of very hefty points drops or powerful tack on rules

>> No.74496610

No it isn't good in comparison to a FL Stonehorn of course, but in a vacuum it isn't a terrible unit in and of itself. It compares favorably to something more tame, like SH Beastriders.

>> No.74496683

yeah, bloodgullet gives you effectively 70pt per cast wizards instead of 140 pt per cast wizards. it doubles their output, allowing you to still put out 6 casters worth of magic with 3 dudes. the issue is, butchers and slaughtermasters magic is almost purely support with 1 or 2 exceptions. this isnt a bad thing, but it means that your units do all the heavy lifting, and your casters are buffing them, as opposed to what i think the firebellies advocates would desire which is closer to a tzeentch or stormcast style of spellcasting flinging mortal wounds everywhere and having the casters deal direct damage

>Tfw your the only faction that's not totally splintered and at war with one another all the time

Nagash is cool because not only is he evil, but he's a self-made evil without the grimderp wanking of the Chaos gods. Everything he does is because he's a self-serving bastard, with a sprinkle of rewarding his own for loyalty.

He also has the most interesting and thematic armies in the game: Whether it's the Nighthaunt, Flesh Eater Courts, Ossiarchs or the Legions, you get a lot of cool undead units that can do cool shit. And the neatest thing is, the fact that all these factions fight one another, but ultimately serve under Nagash makes the faction feel scary, but still diverse.

>> No.74496748


Good point! I actually played a game with my Ogors for the first time just two days ago (had the army for months though, damn you COVID!), 1k pts, and ran it as a Bloodgullet force. Unfortunately the only spell I was able to get off was Ribcracker the entire game, I was super optimistic about the potential of the Voracious Maw.

>> No.74496767

but it's not in a vacuum. bot hare competing for the same 350-400 pt gap in your list, and in that sense the SH beastriders are also competing against the frostlord on stone horn and they lose that game too, which is why you always see 1 or 2 frostlords on stonehorn and rarely any stonehorn beastriders. you occasionally see a huskard on stonehorn for the way his CA stacks with mournfangs for some silly charge damage, but thats a case of additional utility.

thats why the alvgar ancient HUSKARD thundertusk actually has a leg to stand on here. it piles on so much additional utility that it begins to have a compelling argument against the MASSIVE damage and speed you are giving up from the frostlord on stonehorn. its not enough to just have the blast of ice, the huskard also brings the prayers and the blood vulture which let you do targetted mortal wounds on top of the blast, pulverising hailstorm smacking units in a 6" circle for d3 mortal wounds. all of this synergizes with alvugar ancient by contributing dispite not charging, where a frostlord on thundertusk would essentially just be sitting around wishing he could swing his spear but not having much else to do since nothing is coming his way.

>> No.74496795

a little advice, save your best casts for last. if you have 6 casts lets say, and the opponent has 4 unbinds, cast your least important spells first. this forces your opponent to either use up his unbinds in the hope that you fail the later casts, or let a bunch of lesser spells through in hopes of stopping the big ones later. this doesnt apply as much if he has you matched in unbinds equal to your casts, but is still a good practice

>> No.74496837

BCR: Re-do overhaul on Tusk warscrolls, even if it means moving in a different direction than frost lasers. Make a priest hunter and overhaul prayers. Write prayers befitting a 300pt monster priest instead of shit like 'bring back one yeti' or 'D3mws if you roll a 4+ and then a 3+'. One named character would be nice/hero on mournfang.

Guts: New butcher/slaughtermaster model with +1 to cast on warscroll. Mr potato head style maneater kit with lots of options and then a warscroll that gives them a purpose.

Both: battalions that aren't so restrictive, sub-faction rebalance. More mechanical callbacks to their rule set-ups that went nowhere like gulping bites, hungry/eating, and mawpot.

Silly stuff like Meatfist faction: eating gluttons that didn't charge have rend-1 and your tyrant gets 4 big names.

what i would like to see is that tusks double down on the frost laser and prayers. go full ranged battletank/utility buffmobiles. dont try to have them compete with stonehorns for the same roll, but make them better and more distinct at their current role. if you cant give the frost lasers more damage because reasons, give them a debuff like fyreslayers auric hearthguards firepikes. some thing like "covered in in ice: a unit that takes mortal wounds from this attack halfs its run and charge rolls until your next hero phase" or maybe a hit penalty or something. maybe bake alvagar ancient into the basic kit of the thundertusks.

i agree with hunter should be a priest, and give him more play with yetis and gorgers. a yeti and gorger dual kit would be ideal too, FEC style.

i think for the maneaters, do something similar to the kharadrons thunderers. each lad has a different loadout and does a different thing. the maneaters were always renowned for each ogre customizing his own kit and fighting style, lets see it in the gameplay, they should not work well together all doing the same thing, they should each be trying to do their own different thing. stormfiends are another example of mechanics in a unit like this.

So if we take Psychic Awakening as a reference for how Broken Realms will work, we can assume that each book will feature 2-4 different factions, giving them all new rules, battleplans and, at the very least, some heroes, but just like AdMech, Eldar and Dark Eldar, some might get new units instead of heroes or even both heroes and units. What are your hopes and predictions?

>> No.74503307

But we don't know what kind of rules they are gonna include yet. PA also came with some decently sized releases and ended up with a new edition with even bigger releases to kickstart it.
I think Lumineth getting at least a generic lord type hero with their book is a given, might even get those ballistas mentioned in WotE. StD might get their multiparts, too. The fact that Slaanes don't seem to be getting their mortals with it, just one hero, makes me think they'll be one of the starter factions for 3rd edition, but who knows. It also seems like IDK aren't getting anything since they are included in the first book and are not part of the battlebox.

Inevitably any rules it adds for a faction will fall well short of what you can do in battletomes, and inevitably a portion of the factions included in its releases will benefit next to nothing from it due to its lack of specific focus just like PA.

Because that's not their purpose. These books are narrative campaign chapters that add new rules to the factions, they aren't a balance update. Just like PA, once the balance update hits, these books will still be compatible, so the extra rules will still be availiable.

>> No.74503478

It's the equivalent of Kill Team, i.e. a cool game fucked by things like Elite / Arena, while also not having dedicated models and scenery (not counting Rogue Trader it was nice).
On the other hand Warcry got new warbands models, monster models, dedicated scenery range, AND rules for normal AOS models.
Yes, the releases plan for WHQ:BSF was great and the sculpts really good. At least on par or superior to Silver Tower, with more variety.
>The Future(tm)
BUT GW said on their podcast they would be "soon" returning to AOS with Warhammer Quest.
So AOS wins again (because then we'll have dedicated new models from three side games, usable in AOS, while Necromunda is specialist shit and not very usable in 40k at least in terms of datasheet and direct / effortless conversions).

You mean like Wrath of the Everchosen? Or Forbidden Power?

I’m a big fan of the body horror slaanesh designs are getting. I’m sure the foot troops are gonna look great.

>This new conflict will touch every corner of the Mortal Realms, and affect every faction.
>a series of epic narrative books on a scale not seen since the Realmgate Wars. As well as truly massive stories, these books will be packed with new rules for loads of factions
>Whatever army you play, and whomever your allegiance lies with, prepare for war
certainly sounds like just aeeaveles to me.

Those were one off books, not an entire series that serves as a prologue for the next edition and the next narrative arc. Hell, the first book is already tackling Slaanesh, DoK and IDK.

Two desires they all have in common. Survival, and Authority.

Death and Chaos have no need for survival they are inevitable constants.

Destruction and Chaos has no desire for authority all of its forces are essentially decentralized and reject structured civilization to the same level that Order and Death practice.

>> No.74504103

From what we knows from the warcom article and the preview stream, it only tackles DoK.
HoS and IDK are in the lore but no further info yet.

>Slaanesh vs DoK set
Oof, well nice to know not every decision GW makes is aimed at maximum profit at least.

>> No.74504161

They didn't say all factions because "faction" isn't a hard quantifier in AoS like it is in 40k. Literally every keyword is a faction. Armies are constructed off of allegiances and they are also too many subdivided examples of those to promise support for all of them.

>> No.74504176

I also doubt CoS is getting anything because it'll likely disappear next edition.

>> No.74504182

Slaanesh only sold because It was strong, stronger than any other herohammerarmy.
Excpect that number to halve after the quadnerf.

If that were driving their decisions we'd have more orks and ogres by now.

Play them as CoS, there's battalion that pretty much allows you to one-drop your entire army if you go Corsairs.

I mean, as much as people like to shitpost about factions not selling, like greenskinz and whatnot there's no way any of the factions that had been unsupported for years would sell.

morathi's book will either turn out like blood of the pheonix nerfing factions, aborting thier story arcs, and releasing a very poor value box set.

Or once in a blue moon GW learns from its missteps and we get to laugh at eldar players
