    Can you provide a link, please? To the KoS warscroll on Warhammer Community, I mean.

    Summoning zombies and moving?

    I personally am 50/50 on this too. Maybe you should ask GW on Facebook?

    Legions of Nagash

    "What about the Mortal Realms? Worry not, generals – the Open Day also saw some exciting reveals for Warhammer Age of Sigmar. While the Malign Portents remain as mysterious as ever, one thing is certain – something great and terrible is rising in Shyish, and Nagash is behind it. This year...

    Total war: Warhammer Vampire Counts trailer released!

    2 interesting facts: 1) Arkhan is one of the 4 legendary lords available for tomb kings. He bro-fists VCs (diplomacy-wise), while other TKs hate the vamps (little surprise here). 2) TK campaign is about collecting all 9 books of Nagash and then winning the battle for the Black Pyramid.

    Apects of Nagash

    I am currently reading the "Spear of Shadows" by Reynolds. The story features a vampire character who helps the servants of Grungni (a party of adventurers sent to find an artefact) for her own reasons. There is a dialogue where she tells Volker, a young Ironweld engineer, that gods are not men...

    Skirmish lists and tactics

    Recently I took part in an AoS Skirmish Tournament, and won the 2nd place (out of around 10 people)! Our warbands were up to 50 renown. My list was: Wight king with Black Axe (Master of the Black Arts, Merciless Killer, Cursed Book). 1x Vargheist (Varghoyle, actually) 1x Spirit Host 1x Grave...

    Skirmish lists and tactics

    But the moment you look at chaos marauders, who cost 1 point too, you realise that zombies should cost like 0,5 pts. I did a batrep in my native language (russian), and 2 more are incoming. Maybe I will re-write them in English at some point.

    Skirmish lists and tactics

    Skeletons and ghouls are trash, dire wolves are your choice as 2-renown troops. Zombies are viable only if you want to use them as meatshields, in any other case just take the wolves. All Nighthaunt and Vargheists seem ok. The abily to take Master of the Black Arts makes Banshee good. I play...

    New to Soulblight

    Btw, Vargheists hit good, but have poor surviveability. I think that they should fly around in small units - to be able to get cover bonus, to compensate their squishy nature somewhat. From cover, the can suddenly zap with great speed, to charge an enemy scoring an objective or something like...

    New to Soulblight

    The only profit of creating a mono-soulblight army is to have Blood Knights as Battleline, so you will need 2-4 units of them. Aside from that, Vampire Lord on Zombie Dragon is a real beast with the right command trait (he must be your general for maximum effect). Also pay attention to named...

    Josh Reynolds' ansvers regarding AoS

    Josh Reynolds is a hired writer who helps GW shaping the background of AoS (he wrote Nagash the Undying King btw). He also answers questions about background online. Just read what he writes! -Were all Stormcast originally human, or could a suitably devout Duardin, Orruk, Aelf, etc. be chosen...

    Nagash the Undying king

    I was waiting for this book and was disappointed to learn that it is a limited edition that was sold out during Warhammer World. I hoped they will make it an audiodrama, but it doesn't look like they will ever do it. I've read the general plot in one of the reviews, but I still want to read it...

    AoS Skirmish (+community content)

    As you may know, AoS Skirmish book is out, so you can assemble a small warband of your favourite models and play the Shadespire campaign, based in the Realm of Death. And since the book excludes some units, the community has written expanded unit list for every faction!
