    A brief History of Wargames

    Thanks, I'll give that a try 🙂

    A brief History of Wargames

    I tried Saga when I first painted up a Viking warband, it's quite a fun game, not too much depth to it and a little bit too luck-driven to really grab me in the long term. Excellent for only needing a couple of dozen models though. I've also used the same models in both Lion Rampant (medieval...

    A brief History of Wargames

    I was always really surprised that there wasn't a launch made of a skirmish level game to go with the "Vikings" TV series that Amazon Prime made. There are some pretty strong models out there for that time period, these are probably my favourite: Vikings I know there was a game and a model...

    A brief History of Wargames

    I can see where you are coming from there, and I agree that fantasy provides a lot more flexibility in some games where world-building is a big theme (e.g. Oathmark, where you begin by building your "kingdom", which then influences what troops you can select for your army). But how about...

    A brief History of Wargames

    Interesting stuff! I'd be interested to know, how many people here play historical wargames on a regular basis? It seems as though fantasy/futuristic wargames are more fashionable these days, and I wonder why that is? AoS, 40k, Star Wars etc. seem to attract more players than, say, WW2 games, or...

    What is your favourite Death unit and why?

    I didn't play undead until 8th edition, but had a mate who did, and I would say that one of my favourite boasts in the latter stages of WHFB was that I had fought in the days when Nagash stalked the tabletop. Good times! As a troop type to include in an army myself though, its between...

    Unas' lists: Nighthaunt w Nagash 2000 pts

    It does seem as though the role of the VLoZD is primarily distraction, and if built accordingly then also a bit of a damage sponge for regular attacks. He never seems to dish out any damage for me, but still seems worth taking! How hard did you find the wolves hit? Our book seems over-stocked...

    That first one is certainly a fair comment for AoS, and I guess is part of why AoS isn't really my game. I think small characters/units should be the thing, and basically everything costing more than 200pts should just be dumped out of the army books. The second one, I always see "same table...

    Going to try this list in a TTS game one evening this week, probably against Daughters of Khaine. Hoping to use the Blood Knight Bounty Hunters to cause some pain to the spear snakes that I expect to be his battleline, or witch elves if he goes that way. The Legion of Blood vampires casting buff...

    I was chatting to some friends last night about AoS, and about how I wasn't sure how to make a new list to take advantage of the new GHB. This is the list that one of them came up with...! Allegiance: Soulblight Gravelords - Lineage: Avengorii Dynasty - Grand Strategy: No Place for the Weak -...

    D'oh! Has that always been the case, or is that another change? I almost always used it on zombies, or to heal wounded characters, so I've never had to think about that... I just knew that it could resurrect!

    Stacking buffs on the Graveguard, basically! Danse Macabre + a command ability from either the vampire or the wight king is always going to be powerful, whereas obviously you can't stack the two command abilities. I know what you are saying re: emerald Life swarm, but it's still super annoying...

    That's all true, but - aside from victory points for killing veterans - you can achieve the same MSU overkill with units of 10 skeletons. Anyhow, the victory points issue makes it a moot point really! I like the list, looks strong - I might drop Lauka Vai and the 4th black knights, and put in a...

    Ok, that's fair then if you can deny victory points that's a big deal. I still reckon avoiding bounty hunters is fairly marginal though: a 1 damage, -1 rend enemy unit trying to take 10 wounds off 5 black knights isn't so much different to the same enemy unit with 2 damage from bounty hunters...
