  • It's time once again to ferret out those murderous vampires in a new VAU - Vampires Amongst Us. A cross between Cluedo and a roleplay, sometimes gory and often hilarious! Find out more and sign-up! here.

    Ossiarch Bonereapers - A bone to far?

    I don't think we'll see any straight up disloyalty or rebellion out of the ossiarchs, that's kind of their fundamental point after all, but there's more going on in their heads than mindless devotion. The Crematorians in particular have a compelling side motivation secretly preserving captured...

    Which Warscroll needs changing? Or would you change if you could?

    Actually, there is one Nighthaunt unit I'm prepared to say needs further changes - glaivewraith stalkers. Their 'hunt a particular target' ability is thematically rich, but mechanically it doesn't work well for a number of reasons. First, IMO their ability should work if they teleport closer...

    LVO 2022 reveals

    Kurdoss hits pretty hard, but is a bit dull otherwise, and I'm not a huge fan of the model (mostly because of the connection between the throne & the ground, which feels lazy). Hopefully he won't turn into an obligatory take due to lack of damage output elsewhere in the army. Ideally I'd like...

    Which Warscroll needs changing? Or would you change if you could?

    Whoo, good question. Soulblight Gravelords Deathrattle: Some of these units kind of work and others kind of don't, but I'd like them all to be reworked in order to give them a shared mechanical theme. Maybe all the deathrattle units could get the skeletons new 'get back up' ability and wight...

    Warhammer Fest 2022 Reveal

    I don't think this guy is supposed to be a limited run or anything (at least, not any more limited than everything is these days). I wouldn't be surprised if he was included in our next battletome (and likewise wouldn't be surprised if some of the cursed city characters weren't included). But...

    Warhammer Fest 2022 Reveal

    He's supposed to get his own rules as a named character, but I don't put a lot of hope in them standing out terribly. I don't thing GW wants to be in a position where obscure non-battletome units are needed to run factions to full effect. When this has happened in the past - eg the mourngul &...

    Warhammer Fest 2022 Reveal

    It fits with this specific guy, who apparently was a king but lost his kingdom to chaos and has been surviving as a vagabond/mercenary for decades or centuries. Or at least, that's what the presenters seemed to suggest.

    Warhammer Fest 2022 Reveal

    Wasn't expecting any Death releases, so this one very nice new named vampire hero (& their associated Black Library novel) was a pleasant surprise.

    LVO 2022 reveals

    I'm not sure. Having gone over the leaked pages... The good: Olynder much improved, now a figure worthy of the 'Mortarch' title. Bodyguard spirit hosts gives a reason for spirit hosts to still exist after losing mortal wounds, and makes nighthaunt's various support heroes much more viable new...

    AoS - 3rd Wargrove of Woe: Best and Worst Factions for New Players [Ossiarchs take 1st Worst]

    Re: ossiarch price point, the mortek guard are a saving grace. Compared to elite infantry at similar points costs in other factions, Morteks are an absolute steal. You get 2 to 3 boxes of those, and they'll go a long way towards making up for the high price point of the other units, even...

    Which Death faction(s) do you play?

    I don't play much lately - I stopped going to the stores due to covid, and since then have started going to a new, closer hobby store that opened which currently lacks an active AoS player base. Still, I at least collect and actively follow news for Ossiarch Bonereapers (my new favorites) and...

    AoS - 3rd Mortis Praetorians 1k

    Bah, those would be 5 over, wouldnt they? Still though, yeah, if you have opponents willing to run with it, it would be useful to help you decide how to expand. Alternatively, you might try swapping the shaper for a mason. Free healing is great, but triple cast + a more durable platform for...

    AoS - 3rd Handbook: Ossiarch Bonereapers [Under Construction]

    I have similar feelings about the harvester. It's solid, the SoW does support monster use (I'd give my left femur for a warphynx equivalent), and in the right context it can make a 20 model block of morteks nigh invincible. But the counter play of 'just kill the big thing first' is so obvious...

    AoS - 3rd Handbook: Ossiarch Bonereapers [Under Construction]

    My gut check on stalkers & harbingers is that the ratings are a point high each. Are you sure the damage output for the points cost fits those high ratings, keeping in mind how many points we already dedicate to troops (2x20 morteks + 5 kav is already 750) and HQ (katakros + soulmason for 590...

    AoS - 3rd Mortis Praetorians 1k

    Yeah p much. For a 1k list, this looks solid. I like kainan's reapers. At this points value the list would probably be better as petrifex, even with kainan, but I imagine there's either narrative reasons behind that choice, or else a plan to eventually include katakros at higher points...
