    (Age of Sigmar) DEATH Summoning Guide

    With Arkhan and a corpse cart Archers are also worth summoning since you have a decent chance to bring 20. This way you can get them in range of those annoying artillery pieces right away.

    Deadliest Battleline!

    Well the rules state that it's the model that count, not the base so while it's annoying, it's perfectly legal to overlap your round bases to get more model into attack range. Square bases just make it easier to do it.

    Deadliest Battleline!

    All my models are on square based but I can usually manage to get 30 of my 40 skeletons (with spear) in combat against a large enough unit... much less against smaller unit though.

    I could try summon but Scorpions are not useful. He has way to many units and will make sure I can't deploy them in range of his warmachine. Last game was a brain fart on his part. I don't have any carrion but I could try that. I ALWAYS get first turn against him, because he has a battallion...

    Big units vs Multplie units

    I've been toying a lot with list building and I'm currently musing over taking larger units vs multiple units. For some units like Skeletons, Skeletons archers or Grave Guard it's pretty obvious imo that you want large units. For zombies you want multiple small units that will merge later...

    Hum, I never aid much attention to the Carrions but they may be the answer. My dwarf opponent is the best player at our FLGS and he made sure that my scorpion could not deploy anywhere close is artillery but the way I read it, Carrion could be summoned and deployed ignorer de 3" restriction and...

    Ooops I didn't notice about the WK abilities... of well, I did it in a single combat phase so it's not too much of a cheating... I'll take it as a compensation for forget my ring in every single game. Based on your battle reports, I never sent the WK in combat until the game was already lost...

    I always liked the Zombie Dragon but it was unplayable in 8th (not to mention than dwarf were very common in my meta). I may very well purchase one now. However, is it worth it if he's my general? I would have to be more careful with him in that case...

    Hi, I started playing WFB at the very end of 8th editions. I got into it because I loved the End Time storyline and built myself an undead army. I never got into AoS because I quite frankly I hated the fluff and the silly rules. No points was the nail in the coffin and also killed WFB at my...

    Grave Guard Units and Formations

    When I play them I run a 30 men units with 7 models on the first 4 ranks with 2 extra models. This way I maximize the number of attacks. Banner of barrows is a must and I only use GW. They are fun and looks awesome on the table. However, my recent experience proved that mobility is a must in...
