    Battleshock is still taken, it's just as a warband now, so you might see some of those abilities that affect battleshock stacking.

    As for Master of Black Arts, the command trait makes your general a wizard, but it doesn't say how many spells it may attempt to cast or unbind, rendering it useless. However, I wonder how Supernatural Horror is going to work. I imagine if any models from the warband are within 10" of your general during battleshock, then the entire warband is affected. I imagine Order still gets their trait, but it only applies to the warband as a whole.


    It's $10. It's literally the cheapest GW thing you'll ever buy directly from GW. Screw the narrative if you don't like it. It's a 45 minute game that you can play with a handful of models nearly anywhere.

    It certainly is. I'd say it's exactly the AoS version of Mordheim!

    True, the order trait double roll can still be useful.

    If you're a wizard the minimum is one spell, unless differently specified on the warscroll.

    Pretty much every ability on the zombie warscroll doesn't work due to them all being individual units. Having all of them have a 6+ 6+ is rediculous.

    GW has been clear about changing rules as players see fit. I'm running a campaign in a couple months and as long as warbands have the minimum number of models to required on the battlefield to get a buff from a specific warscroll, they still get it, regardless of distance.

    yeah, the only reason to include zombies, is when I play at 25 pts, and I've still got 1 point.
    A zombie with 6+/6+ is useful just to sit upon an objective (as in treasure hunt), but other than that, is pretty much worthless. They are guys the work on horde, and in skirmish there are no hordes.

    Sadly, I cannot really disagree with the post...

    Well, he does have a point to some extent but only to some. It does not make sense save for sending this to GW and also what I don't like is how he twists reality to suit his own vision although it is quite different. He manages to twist it and remake into something horrible or non-existing even if the point is rather good, like "New skellies? they are not for AoS, so it does not count". Bullshit.

    Yep, some single points are out of target, but the overall conclusion is not wrong. Death is undeniably taking the short straw.

    It is and nobody denies this, so that rant had even less practical sense. But the overall state of Death is not so terrible as it appears to be, and all in all I'd say we are fine and will be better, just need to be patient - skellies are great, Herald of Nagash is good too, so I am sure everything else comes later too. After all, we got Shadespire and quite an entertaining fluff with it too.

    The age of hope is dead... but is it because GW is killing it? The hope that Death will have more variety? Or more versatile? Are they killing the hope that we get new units (outside the one)? Or is hope dead because they are going to fulfill it? That would only breed more hope, so if the banner is to be believed, then no. Or perhaps GW is simply acknowledging that Death players no longer expect any love.

    As with any experienced Death player, I will wait and see. If the dead know anything, it's patience.

    I hope it would be something like Season of war, at least, or Firestorm. And that Death and Destruction get enough new stuff, which is quite probable. Fingers crossed anyway.

    No. That's not allowed. The Age of Hope is dead. No hoping permitted.

    There's not exactly much to go on there, given that it's such a short teaser. I think that it's wise to be cautious on that basis.

    Exactly my thoughts too :)

    It is what I feared :(

    True, but it all seems to have potential.

    Yes, very little to see there, but the mood is dark, the name recalls our units and the "trailer" depicts in the background the statue of an undead (at last it seems so).

    ...but i agree that is better to don't presume too much

    Yes, it's unlikely GW will focus on Death that much. But still there is a chance anyway.

    On GW main page there is the announcement "the age of hope is dead".
    Following the link you will arrive to the site dedicated to malign portent... malignportents.com
    There there is the "cinematic" i am salking about. ;)

    Btw i have posted the direct link in one of my previous posts, but i am typing on the phone and so i am not able to do it again easily :(
