I have watched a few battle reports for AoS including one four player match. None of these videos had an Undead player, but from playing Undead, I am farily confident that Undead is the most curb-stompy faction out there, despite the fluff. Of the few games I have played with other veteran players, I have won them all decidedly. So I have been talking with a veteran 40k friend that was building his skaven army during 8th but never actually played. He really likes AoS and he said that what they do in 40k to help new players never bring a model twice until you've used every single model in your army at least once while plying them. Now the new player won't really have to worry about this because they will likely have to max out equipment just to get to 500 or 1000 points. As for AoS, it would be a limit in number of warscrolls and/or wounds/models. Even with this rule, though, I think that I would have to actively inhibit my Undead army tactically, strategically, and in composition in order for ANY player (especially noobs) to have a chance at winning. There are also some 8th players that still haven't crossed over but are willing to try it out and I am worried that if I curbstomp them every game, then they will likely stop playing altogether. I am looking for some recommendations to be able to field a non-OP list that doesn't make it look like I am just letting them win, nor does it beat them senselessly into submisson. The only thing so far I can think of is to field non-synergic warscrolls, like a necromancer with ghouls.
