Hope that's batshit crazy, funnier this way ;)
Thats super dark, I love it!I tend to agree, but we know Nagash revels in the suffering of his minions, so it seems strange that FEC is immune. I believe they all share some moments of clarity when they realize their fate and what horror they have become. Then the cicle begins again.
Is it really such a big problem? To be honest I dont care at all about not having individual models for the courtiers, I just see it as an amazing conversion opportunity :) For instance I bought Duke Crack just to use him as a courtier.FEC Fomo box goes up for preorder next weekend. It includes their warscroll card pack, which in turn implies that we've probably seen all the new units with no additional reveal yet to see, and also no removal of existing units, unless by coincidence there are exactly as many unrevealed releases as retired units, or else any unrevealed releases /replace/ existing models.
I'm a little disappointed by that though, as I was hoping for some units to be removed outright (generic courtiers) or rolled together (abhorrant ghoul king on foot and abhorrent archregeant aren't different enough in function or concept to be two different units, and 'Duke Crackmarrow' honestly just shouldn't be a separate unit from his underworlds warband - they'd play better and make more sense as a single unit, like the warcry warband).
It looks like they'll still be telling people to pick single models out of ghoul, horror, and flayer units to count as key support heroes when those units can only be fielded in exact multiples of their box size, and if that's true it will sour my opinion on the entire release.
The Varghulf Courtier is fast, tough, and dishes out a serious punch in combat. He’s got five Damage 2 attacks and one Damage 3 attack, And thanks to his King’s Champion ability, you can add another two to each attack if he’s hunting infantry
The Cryptguard are surprisingly tanky with a 5+ ward save, and as a Royal Bodyguard, they help make your heroes tougher too. Combine that with the Standard Bearer halving the amount of models that flee
What’s more, before a game begins, the Flesh-eater Courts pick a Delusion. Dan chose The Feast Day, which meant Feeding Frenzy activated for heroes with 4 noble deeds points, not the full 6. This turned out to be huge – Dan’s army almost always had an extra attack on every melee profile in combat, inciting a full-on slaughter.
