I believe the general idea behind the summoned units (and it is made clear by the rules for deployment of an army) is this: Every warscroll your own is your army at all times. You may place them on the board, you don't have to. But if you own the warscroll, you can use it. If that means summoning a ...

Aelf can't be IP protected, it's a regular word like elf, and it even means the same damn thing.

No idea about their quality... but they have vastly improved since last time I checked. I may be tempted to order a test mini (and they're cheaper than GW single miniatures :P)

Exactly, the only actual rule is that no point of a miniature can move more than its M value. I read that as a difference between starting and ending point, because everything else makes less sense.

Or to be more cinematic. The spearman lifts his spear, spins on his heel and points it at the enemy.

I'm not sure if I understand your explanation on the rotation but let me try an example in how I see it. Unit of spears facing away from the enemy with their spears sticking out 1" from the model get charged, enemy piles in and likely max two "ranks" get to fight due to 1" range ...

Yes, but you're already lined up in a formation, you don't actually move the models anywhere, just spin them around as their 3" pile in.

One big unit is better on the offensive, as you only need to activate them once to do all their attacks. Two smaller units are better on the defense though as you can position them one behind the other so that the enemy can only attack one, but to do so will have to enter within 3" of the secon...

I was thinking more of a

Line of spears all showing their backs to the enemy (for longer charge distance) and in pile up, the all spin on the spot, turning spears forward.

All the advantages with no disadvantages.

I think you're approaching it wrong Jvh792. Age of Sigmar got rid of all semblance of balance, perhaps on purpose, and I believe that if you want to enjoy it (if that is possible, I haven't been given a chance to try yet) you also have to forget about balance as you knew it from WFB. Simply put, you...

You seem to have skipped over the fact that distances are measured from models themselves, including any weapons. This means a formation of spears with strategically positioned weapons can have as much as an extra inch of reach in one direction.

"Getting the charge" still has it's advantages, but it's not nearly the all-important factor that it used to be. I put my figures away a few years ago and never even bothered to give 8th ed. a try. Yeah, I wondered if that might be the case. Getting the charge in 8th edition was not parti...

From all the reports I've read so far it looks like AoS is an expensive card game with miniatures instead of cards. You build your "deck" based on synergies and then make them work in game. Difference being you start with all your "cards" available to you and don't need to count ...

Simple, 10 or more Warlocks with 5 combat characters in the front rank and a sorceress in the second rank. Super Expensive, Super Destructive on the charge and still has great spells to use.

Given (arbitrary) limit of 100 wounds, there was no room for cavalry. 2 wounds per model makes them very expensive in this regard. (and multi-wound models take bad battleshock roll terribly)

Need to make a correction, as Corsairs are apparently 10+. Drop 5 Darkshards to make 30 Corsairs and put them in 3 units of 10.

"it" is already refered to once in the rules (I didn't add that part, it's original), and thus does not require further explanation. For the purpose of the rule the first part of the second sentence defines "it" Flame template is 8.5" so the 6" reference as being simila...

You're correct, the use of plural on vicious blades mixed it up for me.

Regardless, melee is a last resort.

Which is fine by me because that's the moment my army either

a) pulls back, making sure your general is far away with a useless ability
b) aims everything it can at the guy sitting on the throne, depriving you of a general (kind of important model for the game)

"of it" is my addition, as an example that the difference between writing bad, ambiguous rules and concise, clear ones is often as little as four letters.

I have big reasons to believe Age of Sigmar is not a way to shelve fantasy. Actually one big reason. https://m2.behance.net/rendition/pm/27758909/disp/254953fdbdd15da651f6e74e4be70c5b.jpg If they shelve Age of Sigmar, that guy stays there for who knows how long making people wonder what the hell it ...

Figured I'll see what I can make for AoS (not that I have anyone willing to give it a try in my area) that is competitive (or at least appears to be) My goal is to fit within 12 scrolls (seems to be thrown around) and no more than 100 wounds total (like with scrolls) First, shooting is amazing in Ao...

I have a theory. They have released Age of Sigmar, replacing Fantasy Give them a year, maybe two, they will release Age of... the Emperor? The rules will be identical to Age of Sigmar and allow for cross use of both 40k and Fantasy miniatures. Thus a single system, a complete massacre of decades of ...

I disagree, Icon Hack. Rule should be written in such a way that there is only one way to read it. Interpretations have place in prose, not rules. Noxious Breath: In your shooting phase, a Black Dragon can belch forth a cloud of noxious gas. If it does so, pick a target unit that is visible to it, a...

And you are still limited to a single command ability per Hero Phase (which is actually super ambiguous in the rules but that's not a surprise).

As well as making your character a juicy prime target.
