Re: AoS Grand Alliance : Order, things I don't understand

Even Sigmarines are not goody two-shoes, they are known for torching entire towns because someone whispered something wrong. Good ole warhammer burnings. Currently Daughters of Khaine and Idoneth Deepkin are the strongest of Aelf factions simply due to the fact of having their own battletomes which ...

Re: Theories and Ideas we want for the Next Elf Release

I would expect some sort of mini-release for Daughters of Khaine (endless prayers?) and then the Hysh elven faction led by Tyrion and Teclis. I think the Tenebreal Shard and Mistweaver Saih are a good example of the next two major elf releases. One focusing on Shadow and one on Light, first led by M...

Re: 8th DE 2000 Balanced List

Point for point Lokhir is *terrible* possibly the worst character you can pick. All hero level special characters are pretty terrible compared to what you can build yourself for the same points. Your Bloodwrack Shrine unit, what are they meant to do? Very expensive for a sorceress guard, very weak f...

Re: AoS seems... interesting (also I'm back! ish?)

Yeah, I re-read that and noticed the difference. Also after re-reading rules for piling in and Sisters of Slaughter rule I came to a conclusion that they can indeed pile in without charging. The rules say any unit that has successfully charged (which puts it within 1/2" of an enemy model) *or* ...

Re: AoS seems... interesting (also I'm back! ish?)

Standing outside of 3" does not help because you can't pile in unless you charged in the same turn (which means being within 1/2" of the enemy or the charge fails) or happen to be less than 3" from enemy through other circumstances. This basically negates their pile in rule as you als...

Hey guys! Long time no see. When I saw the new Morathi model I decided to find a group to play with and see what the whole AoS is about.

Re: Sumon spells

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 ...

Re: Square vs Round and weapon range

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.

Re: Square vs Round and weapon range

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.

Re: Best Dark Elves Units in AoS

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...

Re: Square vs Round and weapon range

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.

Re: Un-Welcome to the Age of Sigmar

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.

Re: Square vs Round and weapon range

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.

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)
