Hi all,

Unfortunately a lot of my earlier images have died on their links :(

Never fear though! Jump straight to page 4 to go to my latest updates! Hope you enjoy the Son's of Breton and my journey!

Update Two:


More assembly!


Starting on the Skull reapers/Chosen, and Mighty lord. Slight conversion, swapping the hound over to his right.


WIP on the Lord!


More join the cause!

Went for a different skin tone on the second unit of bloodreavers to differentiate between the two.
Also started on my blood warriors. Seems I didn't take any progress shots though!



Bloodreavers almost there. Edging and highlights to go!


Thanks for taking a look!

Played a 2 v 2 AoS game with the majority of my army about 2 weeks ago now. Took a few snaps to share:


View from the Order battleline!


Battlelines drawn. Aelf on the order left flank, and a ton of stormcast on the right. Enough for a very large two rank deep liberator unit.


Bloodreavers raving in the Hellfort to Khornate death & blood metal! - They don't move the whole game as the objective was to hold the fort.


A true Khornate charge. - We decided to halt the order advanced and keep them away from the Hellfort aslong as possible. Snatching the initiative on turn 2 secured us that charge!


I fly my bloodthirster up when the main battleline is engaged. He wipes a 5 man liberator squad, and with his incarnate Rage bloodily explodes a few more stormcast within 8".


Just a quick army shot, of a second 100 wound match I played. My opponent brought Archaon, Skarbrand, Blob .... needless to say I was totally out-summoned. Now considering a wizard of sorts just to keep units rolling in. Not very Khorny but...

Thanks for looking.

Fantastic work! That game looks excellent, and your paintwork is brilliant.

Another blog that makes starting AoS a constant temptation! You and Bottle keep this up and I'll have no choice but to start Sigmaring it up!

Hi Paradigm,

Thank you so much. I love your thread, and especially the realism you go for on some of your work, so coming from you that's awesome!

And as AoS goes, whilst the system is interesting, the options for lore and paint work is still there!

Thanks again!

Thanks EDC!

I toyed with the skin tone for ages before I settled on something a little different from the normal red. I also didn't want the Armour to get lost to much with the skin, hence the blue.

Still more to go on the bloodthirster!

Thanks again.

Hi all,

I managed to get my first game in under the SCGT comp rules. Must say I much prefer them. Certainly in regards to pool point count, summoning rules and general army setup.

Here's what I captured so you can see how the battle panned out:












HOLD THE LINE - I love how the liberators look in this format. My opponent did really well to line them up to deny overlap.








Ah yes the Retributor lightning stirke!







At the end of turn 5 I only had my Bloodthirster left on 12 wounds.

Lessons learnt:

We went on the ruling that my bloodsecrators do not stack. So I may replace one for something else, however they were not targeted in priority so having two in other games is still not a bad idea in-case they get sniped.

I was anxious to get my 20 Bloodletters in asap, this was possibly a mistake as 10 came in turn 1 and a following 10 turn 2. Meaning they still had a lot of the board to cover in re to movement when I could have utilised them better when needed.

I left my Daemon Prince exposed (Subbed in for a Khorgarath) it died to the Grpyhhound presenting all kinds of units to shoot me. (Btw that Judicator Prime, wow that's a lot of shooting to die to)

A unit of 40 Bloodreavers, was nice, but just to many to maximize my attacks. I will take them as two units of 20 instead for the purpose of maximization and utility.

Hellcannon was and IS all kinds of awesome. It took 10 wounds of the stardrake which is lucky from its wound rolls, but still that was my VIP.

Other thoughts, I might try to maximise more skullreaper units from spare wounds, like dropping the 10 blood warriors. Skull reapers are all kinds of awesome.

Many thanks,

Awesome stuff. Out if curiosity why did you decide the bloodsecrators don't stack when the rules say that all modifiers are cumulative? I run three specifically to stack them.

An extremely common ruling is that abilities with the same name do not stack - Mystic Shield is culprit #1. Personally I'd say 'Secrator +1A doesn't stack either.

BUT that's an awesome photo recap, great stuff! Kind of stunned all your stuff evaporated so quickly, but that's what 8-9 rounds of combat will do for you I guess

Post by: Luvvo


Yeah SCGT states that cumulative or unique named abilities do NOT stack.

This is where I will be looking to take Wrathmongers to generate an additional attack though as a replacement. Their passive ability when they die is amazing if I can get them 2" within a enemy Hero/unit.

Dear enemy Hero please now attack yourself, as one of my wrathmongers is dead. Excellent berserk elite! -yes that could be applicable to his stardrake as an example.

Hi all,

Just in case anyone was interested I thought I would list my current SCGT Khorne Bloodbound army:

I'm 4/5 wins at the moment, Vs Bretonnia, Tomb Kings, Goblins/Orks, Empire. The one loss was Stormcast.

2 Bloodthirster's of Insensate Rage 24
Daemon Prince 7
Mighty Lord of Khorne 5
2 Bloodsecrator's 12
Blood-stoker 3
3x5 Skullreapers 24
1x Wrathmonger 8
2x20 Bloodreavers 12
2x10 Bloodletters 5 (Summoning Pool) -100 Pool Points

How is everyone else's lists shaping up?

Thanks,

I used to run with a Hellcannon. After some swapping due to it being a "legacy scroll" I had 18 pool points to play with. That was an easy decision for another Thirster, then some tweaking elsewhere.

Within SCGT, the portal of skulls don't stack, however on a 4x2 I pretty much have an entire army not taking battle-shock and benefiting from the +1 melee attack. Almost a 36" wide bubble. Anything out of that is normally a single character or I can flip Inspiring presence on them.

Here's the next installment from my last match Vs Tomb Kings:

It was my first time playing TK under AoS/SCGT. Last time was back in 8th.


My battleline. Off to my right is the bloodreavers and second Thirster.


My battleline


Aerial View.


The chariots advance.


Settra and Lord Vharak Khovar face off. Being in full cover I have a 2+ AS. Unfortunately no reality splitting Axe came off.


Chariots get melted!

Unfortunately that's all I took. It was a fun battle, relatively convincing for myself. It was my opponents first game under SCGT.

Skullreaper's and Wrathmonger's are the mainstay of my army. Can't argue for having them more!!! A bloodstoker re-rolls though's wound rolls of one so you can almost guarantee daemon-forged blades causing additional mortal wounds on 6's and not taking damage back on the 1's.

If you can get the Reapers in against a squishe unit first you can rack up the kill count and then re-roll hits and wounds. Which is amazing, as you are 3+ to hit 3+ to wound, Re-rolling. PLus re-rolling 1's on the charge. Gorelord them and thats a 3D6 charge as well.

My Wrathmonger's in that game, made Settra and the Spyhnx hit themselves. So I can't argue against that!

I did a recent conversion on my Bloodwarrior's to Wrathmonger's which I can share, as I wanted to save some money with the amount of spare bits I have.


I have loads of info but at work so rushing at the moment!

Here's the converted Bloodwarrior's to Wrathmonger's.

Very simple, but great for me as otherwise these models would sit at home on the shelf. Also saves me £35 on a new box! If only Bitz sites had the spares I could have made another 15 Skullreaper's/Wrathmonger's.

Hi all,

I've been working on my Bretonnian list. After a few test games they felt really lack luster, and/or to expensive for their capabilities.

As such I think I may have found something that is fluffy, but could still work on the tabletop. Let me know what you think.

Louencouer
Fey Enchantress
Paladin Standard Bearer
Damsel of the Lady
40 Knights of the Realm

100 Pool points under SCGT.

Using everything in conjunction at a *maximum potential can create a lovely charging deathstar.

Under this scenario, assuming all are in range to attack and have charged. Inclusive of these hero abilities/spells:

FE: If that unit is Nobility, you can add 2 to all these hit rolls instead.
FE: Mystic Shield
Aura of the Lady: In your hero phase, select the Damsel or a Free People model within 6"" of her; that model heals one wound. Supreme Aura of the Lady: In your hero phase, select the Fay Enchantress or a Free People model within 6"" of her; that model heals D3 wounds."
LL: Do not take battleshock
DoTL: If successfully cast on a 5, within 16" whenever , when that unit suffers a wound or mortal wound. Add 1 to that roll if the unit is Nobility. On a 6 or more, that wound is ignored.

So that's...

40 Knights (1 Gallant) 81 attacks @ 2 Damage, no rend, 2+/3+ to hit and wound. Saves of 2+/5+
40 Chargers 80 attacks @ 1 Damage, no rend, 2+/4+ to hit and wound.

Failed Attacks Successful Attacks Succesful Wounds Enemy Save Rolls (*4+) Potential Damage Output
14 68 45 23 45
13 67 33 17 17
Sub-Totals:27 134 78 39 62

I would then retreat in subsequent rounds with a 10" retreat move, and re-charge to maintain the bonus'. Scenario dependent. But if I win priority it might be more beneficial for me to do so.

Thanks,

Afternoon all.

Played another match yesterday, Vs Skaven this time. It was composed of, what I can only describe as an Elitist - Shooty army bar, a Verminlord and Hellpit. I'll see if you can call out the units, there were a lot of interesting conversions in his list!

I'll let the pictures tell the story though! Enjoy.


Deployment after my initial move and run.


Angle 2.


Angle 3


Surprisingly he actually moved forward. Was not expecting that.


Angle 2. I was trying to rush for the cover to get what saves I could against the shooting.


Won priority on Turn 2, but still lost a lot to his first shooting round. Ouch Bloodthirster's!


Khorne does, what Khorne does best. My Insensate Ragethirster swings first, and causes 3 mortal wounds on enemy units in an 8" bubble after wounding on x3 6's. Shame that doesn't stack!

He was unaware of the Wrathmonger's abilities, so piled in with the Verminlord who then hit and killed himself, after taking the mortal wounds from the Ragethirster.


More shooting thins me out...


Closing the gap.


Skaven last stand.


I pulled off the win. but I was super anxious about all those shooting attacks.

Taking me to 6/7 wins now. I'm hoping to get a rematch with the Stormcast player as my list has change fairly significantly and i think i can take it.

Thanks for taking a look.

Luvvo.

That Skaven army: HOLY. FAKK.

(As in the modeling is stupendous; actual composition a bit high on the douche, and as you say, not very interested in engaging in the game. Filthy rats )

It was a very interesting Skaven army indeed. Most if not all models were individual in some way, and very nice conversions!

Last time I played them was back in 8th so was a bit of a wake up call for me. Sooooo much shooting, and only the one Mystic Shield

I believe that was supposed to be a hell-bit abomination. In fact it definitely was, as it had the 5+ rule it comes back to live!

Thanks Chaps.

I'm not certain on the horses/ All I know is that when I have tried to get through a regiment of 9+ when in the old school lance formation I almost lost hope when going over each individual horse.

And I have to admit the celestial steed was hella easy and for an ok/decent effect. When it comes to 40 of them I'm leaning towards keeping the same colour scheme. However i could potentially look at character mounts, the Damsels and BSB for example.

@WarbossDakka - I think I have a close up version on my Night Lords plog that's worth a look if you want a close up!

@Paradigm - I truly hope so. The last few games i've play tested against my Khornate army the Bret's have just not been able to stand up against it. This way I have taken the deathstar unit into a deathstar army escalation! Can't wait to get it ready to play with!

New match update for you. This time Vs Vampire Counts/Death. I'm also due to play a really nice Nurgle army tomorrow so will update you on that as well!

Enjoy!


Battle lines are drawn. I'm elected to go first. Khorne advances.


Advance!


Death's view


Death's Advance







Seems I missed a few pictures here, as it goes from a full board to half empty.

Conclusion, I had another victory wiping the whole table.

Thanks!

Hi all,

I promised a good match, and I definitely have one!

Nurgle vs Khorne


Drawn Battlelines

















































I think that takes me to 8/9 victories in SCGT AoS. I'm looking to tweak my list, possibly by replacing the Deamon Prince and the bloodletters summoning pool. Not to sure what with yet. Perhaps a Gaunt Summoner.

Thoughts?

*Will be back later to give some thoughts on where I went wrong in this match up.

Thanks,

Here's my kitbash for a stand in Louen Leoncoeurr. Temporary base until I paint and place him on his Hippogryph mount(using the Empire Griffon).

Hi all,

Quite a big update today.

I had a rematch with the Nurgle army. Both of us with a few tweaks to our lists, so enjoy that one.

In regards to the tweaks, I've included a Warshrine, swapped my Mighty Lord for a Jugger Lord, and a Skullgrinder. After the battle I've further tweaked again. Also need to run some mathhammer on my Wrathmongers vs Skullreapers.

One thing I did notice though, was that my opponent had missread the rule for Plague Bearers being at -2 to hit in combat as opposed to shooting. This is a majoorr deal!! As even my skullreapers are now hitting on 6's!

Round 2 FIGHT!:


















At one point my Wrathmongers caused 19 wounds. He saved 18!!!!







And now for the conversions and tweaks to my list:


Gaunt Summoner/Tzeentch Sorc Lord - With Khorne hound to keep him in check!








Still a lot of work to go on this badboy.


Thanks for stopping by!

cant wait to see where the warshrine goes.
does it do well for you?

looking for the results on you skullreapers vs wrathmongers.

cant believe he made 18 saves... yikes!

The warshrine is excellent.

A 6+ ward on all mortal units within a 9" range really makes a difference. Especially as most of my army is mortal!

That and the Favour of Khorne is very nice. On a 3+ the ability to re-roll ALL failed hits packs a punch!

My Skullreapers vs Wrathmongers is coming down to running either a:

A) 10 man unit of Skullreapers with a separate 5 man, and seperate 5 man Wrathmonger. OR

B) 10 man unit of Skullreapers, with a 10 man Wrathmongers.

I was running them all as separate 5 mans so that I could benefit from their kill tally much faster and get those re-rolls on wounds. but having them in larger groups allows me to maximise my Hero abilities/buffs so the kill tally is outweighed by this.

Including a Bloodsecrator, Jugger Lord, Stoker, and Warshrine on the two 10man variants:

Skullreaper's have a damage output of 22 unsaved wounds on models with a 4+ save. (This is using Deamon Weapons)

Wrathmongers have a damage output of 25 unsaved wounds on models with a 4+ save.

Hi all.

New match up for you.

Khorne Bloodbound Vs Death



















I ended up losing the game. That's two losses in a row from a previous 9 win streak. Perhaps I need to stop mucking around with my tweaks and go back to my core list. The warshrine will stay, as hit ability to re-roll all failed hits is a big deal early on. Inclusive of the 6+ ward on mortal units.

My main mistakes here, were over-exposing my Bloodthirsters when it was not necessary for me to do so. That and not using my bloodreavers to soak up the first Blood Knights charge bonus. My thirster made all 5 attacks and wounds on the Zombie Dragon (Mortarch) but he saved all of them. That could have been a game changer.

Dat Mourngoul though. Not 100% on how to take that out yet.

Thanks,

Hi all quick update:

Working away on my Bretonnian army for an escalation campaign, pre the summer campaign and the Generals Handbook. Although with all the leaks online, I've allready built out my 2.5k list for AoS, and can't wait to play it in store.

Here's a little glimpse into on of the games and the Paladins I'm working on.





Also here's my current list, I'm looking to escalate to, and have ready for the summer camp.

King "Samuel Luuvigne" 400 Leader
The Fay Enchantress "Isylte Aeleis" 160 Leader
Damsel of the Lady "Athelisa Belsant" 100 Leader
Paladin Standard Bearer "Tedric Hardouin" 160 Leader
Amber Battle Mage "Corban Mils" 100 Leader
Knight-Vexillor "Hoel Virrus" 200 Leader
24 x Knights of the Realm II "Gabryell Laive" 660 Battleline
10 x Paladin Protectors "Covean Mord" 440

2,220 Points at the moment.

How is everyone else's shaping up, would love to know!

Thanks,

I think that's your Vexillor? Conversion looks ace

List looks strong, I know there's a lot of synergy backing up that KotRstar. Feels like a ton of characters? But that's pretty fluffy for Brets, and I'm sure it fits in the comp limits.

I'm excited to roll into the campaign with my Ogres, but sadly I've only seen the beast stuff leaked for them

Hey Salvage,

Thanks for stopping by.

That man there is actually my Paladin protector prime.

Here's a new shot on the rest of the unit, 5 more to go.

My Vexillor is in front.



The list is based around a hard hitting KotRstar, absolutely right. Providing all my spells go off, and I charge that's:

48 attacks at 2+ to hit 2+ to wound no rend, but 2 damage from the Knights.
A further 48 from the chargers at 2+ to hit and 3+ to wound.
With a 2+/5+ save.

All first round of combat of course due to the charge. Mathhammer its a fairly reasonable 43 wounds after saves at 4+'s.

The paladins I will drop to deal with any big scary monsters, as my knights lack of rend struggles to knock down big wound count models.

My last 280 points is exactly enough to drop in two concussors to strengthen my Knight charge and support.

Character heavy and just on the limit at 6 >_<

Thanks again.

Hi all,

So I've kicked off my escalation campaign at my local GW as well as merging into the GW summer campaign with our escalation armies.

We started with 35 pool points, gaining 2D6 for a loss, and 1D6 for a win. This gained a D6 if we used a scenario or the summer campaign scenarios.

Here's a few snap so far:


Third game in Vs a mousillion Death army.


I over expose Leoun here, he dies to a Blood Knights savage charge. As well as the Fey enchantress getting snagged by the Mourngoul.

I lost this matchup.


This was a 2 v 2, Order vs Death. (Fyreslayer allies ftw)


I did much better with my charges here, also winning priority. Charged into the Mourghoul with Knights and Leoun. But still didn't kill him. leaving me open to a Blood Knight, and Grave Guard counter charge.


The objective was to have more models on the middle terrain piece, as it held a magic item. The winning army would then honour duel it out with its generals.


Leoun won! Check that item out!


Progress shot of the Knights, and more paladins.


This was a 2 v me match up as I'd accounted for more pool points. using the first summer campaign scenario.


I smashed through the stormvermin killing them outright, as well as lightning striking my paladins in to take out Durthu.


Enemy turn, and they line up to take out the knights.




Seems I missed a few pictures here, but I won!


This was a 1v1 but with a strategic objective. My opponent went with assassinate. At first I bunkered as expected some lightning deepstrikes. Fortunately he didn't have the pool points yet to spend on the battalion/vexillor.


So I advance! Dropping in my paladins on his Venator to snipe him. I designated attacks elsewhere and he ends up retreating out on one wound.


I make use of his slow infantry, bu the prosecutors hold me up with a flank charge. i kill them, but its done enough. My opponent tries to line up more shooting time, with the Venators star fated arrow, and the judicators into Leoun.


Unfortunatley the shooting isn't quite enough, and with D6+1 wounds back thanks to my hero setup Leoun is back to full health!

It was just a matter of cleaning up from there.

Thanks all, really enjoying the GW summer campaign so far. Hoq is everyone else doing?

Hi all!

Its been a little while since my last update.

Have atleast two battles to show you. Both using The General's handbook at 2.5k lists. With the second match using the Border War game type. Hope you enjoy, firstly though here's a few conversion or other bits of work:


Paladin's finally based up!


Pegasus Knights!


Closer look at the pegasus knight.


Questing Knights. Lady forgive me for some of the headswaps!

++ Battle Reports Incoming ++

Vs Sylvaneth












24 Glorious Knights of The Realm






















Allariellie causes 15 wounds with her Beetle alone. All of a sudden my frontline doesn't look as strong.







At this point I conceded. Allarielle, and more specifically her beetle is a beast!

Vs Death












His General on *zombie dragon dies to the paladins efforts, but reanimates on a 6 and comes back on one wound. Subsequently retreating.


But not from a 4D6, 2 highest 12" charged from the Pegasus knights!


The charge hits home into the accursed Mousillion ranks!

[imghttps://s9.postimg.io/fg41shbf3/WP_20160818_20_27_53_Rich_2.jpg[/img]




The knight try valiantly to hold Mousillion back and contest the Victory Points.


The Pegasus Knights do the same and fly an impressive 21" retreat to cover the questing knights vs the Blood Knights.


We hit store closing time at this point and so had to extrapolate the game out.

It was a close win for me with 2 Victory Points!

Quick update:

I have finally got around to my AoS Death army. More specifically a Soulblight Vampire list. There are a few things I need to iron out. Like making the list actually viable, but here is what I would like to base it off:

Mortarch Mannfred
Wight King w/ Infernal Standard
x 30 Blood Knights
Mournghoul

2540

Two concept snaps of my Blood Knights so far, whilst things are on order:





Would love to hear your thoughts!?

For paint scheme I think a classic red, but worked up to a tamia red clear, so lacquered red armour will work well.

With dark nightmare steeds, and maybe a few OSL effects on eyes and hooves.

Thanks,

Vorri

Fantastic interpretation of a Bretonnia army. Was always my favourite in fantasy but due to neglect by GW on the model range and an intense dislike to metal and finecast models, I never got past an initial knight errant unit.
May steal this kind of idea for a future AoS army

Solid kitbash, great improvement on the (rather pitiful) standard yeomen for sure. Funnily enough I just saw a Kislev army yesterday (for KOW) that used chaos ponies to make better good-ish human mounted bowmen ...

Update on the Mounter Yeoman:



I used them in a subsequent 2.5k match... they didn't seem to be worth the 200 points to be honest.

Hi all,

I have a new battle report for you!

Khorne Bloodbound Vs Death Mousillion

This was a 3000 point match, following the Gift from The Heavens pitched battle types.
Spoiler:


Deaths deployment


Khornes deployment






Magewrath Throne - With a fat Wight King!


The massed Bloodbound ranks advance.






The Bloodbound severely underestimate the mobility of a Death army. That 4" free move in the Hero phase closed the gap much quicker than expected!


Gaps start to appear in the Bloodbound battleline!


The Black Knights and Mournghoul chew away at the Bloodreaves frontline.


The Blood Knights get a long charge into the Bloodthirster, then pilling into the Skull crushers, negating a savage counter charge.


Death win priority turn two and the skeletons join the combat. The white line on the empty base is Mannfred! The Template is the Meteor landing.


The Bloodbound right flank is fully engaged. Belakor lurks on the extreme right. using his Dark Master ability on the Mournghoul. Unfortunately the Mournghoul was undaunted a rolled 4+ every time.


Mannfred joins the fray


& then leaves the fray Really solid rolling from the warshrine. Those clubbed fists are -2 rend! Wrathmongers, and Khorne lord contribute as well!


The vampire on Zombie Dragon is free from combat on the right flank!


& so sneaks in behind the Bloodbound meteor to contest the Victory points. Deaths landed on their extreme right, and near unreachable for the Bloodbound.


Last shot I took of the game. The Wrathmongers and Warshrine kill the vampire Lord on zombie dragon, but the Ring of immortality sees him come back within 12" somewhere.

Before I finish my turn 3 we call it there due to store closing.

5 VPs - 5 VPs

It was too close to call as anything could have happened from there so we drew.

*One scenario I would like help on however:

The Mournghoul was on one wound remaining. In his combat he killed a Skullreaper, and so should immediately heal D3 wounds.

However the Skullreaper caused 2 mortal wounds back to the Mournghoul in his death throws. Which is delivered when killed.

Effectively these actions are carried out at the same time. So the question was, does the Mournghoul die, or does it survive due to the heal?

We 4+ it in the end, as we could not decide.

Many thanks,

Afternoon all...

I really want to get a kick start into this army, but my basing and painting concepts are holding me back.

Does anyone have any nice gritty vampire schemes that would work for a Non-air brush user?

I've also tweaked the list for a pure Soulblight one as well:

Vampire on Vampire Dragon
Coven Throne
Vamp Lord x2
30 Blood Knights

2540

The guys at Awaken Realms seem to do a really nice job, but I'm certain its air brushed.

Hi all,

Quick update: Working on a 1500 slayer themed list for my Disspossed. Using a collection of models from Scibor Miniatures, and Avatars of War.

My resin bases and hero models arrived the other day. Yet to get the slayers. Just working on my battle-lines for the time being, as unfortunately I can't get a slayer specific list.

Thanks guys.

I was thinking of doing some OSL on the runes, and doing more of a snow frozen base as it will contrast really well with the light cyan colour of Kharak Draka's main colour.

The Scibor miniatures have a ton of character. Can't wait to get stuck into them. They are definitely slightly larger than the GW dwarfs, but as hero characters I think that should be ok.

I played a 1v1 Gift from The Heavens with my Freeguild list. I was taking on a Daughters of Khaine list.

My List: 1680 Points

Empire General
Grey Battle Mage -Mistifying Miasma
Master Engineer
Gryph Hound
x20 Greatswords
2 x10 Sword Guard
x20 Handgunners
x2 Great Cannons
Celestial Hurricanum



My deployment.




Aelve Deployment


Aelves advance.

I targeted the cauldron of blood as soon as I could. It buffs the witches something chronic. Unfortunately I did not roll high on my D6 dmg from the great cannons so it took two turns. A few snipes from Long Rifles and it went down.



The witches win priority turn 3 and charge on in. I don't mind this to be honest, as my Handgunners have the Stand and Shoot reaction. 19 shots hitting on 2's and wounding on 2's is simply crazy with a -1. That's insta dead witches. I target the Executioners however as they are more of a threat.

The ensuing combat sees me lose, 5 Swordsmen from my left most unit, 1 from the right, and 1 Greatsword. By the end of my turn 2 I completely wipe all of the aelves, and due to battleshock they take heavy losses. The executioners go down to three models atleast.

I also managed to get off the Mystifying Miasma onto the executioners negating their double damage mortal wounds on 6's to hit. This turns out to be mega otherwise I would have lost 16 greatswords due to his rolls. Instead I retain a save of 2+. 4+ basic, +1 for mystic shield, and +1 for being behind the wall.

Lessons Learnt:

Its incredibly hard to win scenarios that rely on VP to win the games. You have to really consider your deployment and placement with what is a very static army. The general premise is to bunker up nice and tight and let your Great Cannons snipe scary things, or solo characters to stop them capping Objectives. In larger games at 2k, you could take four great cannons which is awesome.

Combat armies are going to have to come to you. I've yet to play verses a shooting list, like Savage orcs but even they have a relatively short range.

Many thanks,

Morning all,

I won the campaign battle! Turns out it was not quite the Apocalypse scale we expected. With only a total of 12K on the table. It was a close run thing to the end though. 7 VPs to Khorne & 6 VPs to Mousillion. 5 VPs to Order, and possibly 3 VPs for Destruction.

The last contested tile on turn 4 came down to a shared wound amount of 53 between us. -What are the odds!

After the snaps, I've also posted what I'm working on next. In other news my Avatars of War Slayers arrived today! Yay!

Here's the pictures though:








I used Sayl to fly my bloodletters up, completing a subsequent charge into the flanking move from the ork boys and brutes. I have to split some of my attacks, but I take 10 Brutes down to 3. Sniping the banner with the Hellcannon on 6 mortal wounds as well. The boys and the remaining brutes run due to battle shock. Mortal wounds on 5+ to hit is nasty. I think you can make that 4+ to wound as well when combined with the "Lord of War" trait!




Those pesky Grot netters are nutz. My mighty Skullcrushers as a consequence are now hitting on 6's! I'd also charged my wrathmongers into the Gobbos' to give them an extra 30+ attacks back :(


Work on my new Khorne 2k GT list starts!


Rebasing my bloodreavers on 25mms to use as Khorne Marauders. I figure for the same points cost for 10, you lose the rend an Totem buff. But gain a 5+ save, and two ranks fighting instead of the one due to 32mms. With effectively the same benefits.


A quick conversion/bits swap for my sorcerer on mount.

Hi all,

I've been working on a ton of new things at the moment. (I should really dedicate my time to getting one army focused on!)


Scale picture from GW Duradin warriors and AoW Seekers.


My alternate model for Ungrim. A lot bigger for scale, but I don't mind that.


Also doing some minor conversion work on my Bloodreavers into Marauders!


First concept for my Kraka Drak slayers




Really love the new Tzeentch blue paint range.

Would love feedback on the slayer. Really want the runes to pop more on the base, but not sure what colour to use.

Many thanks,

Been a while.

Following an AoS skirmish campaign I started my Dispossessed army in earnest.



Going for a much darker dwarven armour, using a white marble for the basing to make them pop!

Hi all,

New project incoming!!

I'm starting a 2k GT list for the heat 3 tournament in June of next year!

To get your head around it think Thunder Warriors but in the Age of Sigmar. As such I've written a little context to get myself hyped!

~~++ The Son's of Breton ++~~

The Son's of Breton can be traced (for those that know how to do such things, after all the history of ages and worlds is long lost) back to a time after the elder ages of Dwarf and Elf. A race of man forged by Sigmar's own hand in his mortal form. Yet their story does not truly start there. For if that was so, you would only be eating the lie that ruled the Son's of Breton through the Ages.

Thier truth starts with Lileath, the Maiden. Lileath was the High Elf goddess of dreams, magic energy, innocence, and fortune. She was the daughter of Isha and Kurnous, and thus was the older sister to the entire Elf race.

In the death throws of the Old World Lileath, was also known as another by the Son's of Breton. She was known as The Lady.

Lileath strove to create a new world, a rebirthed Old World. Born among the Age of Myth. She spent her efforts and power strengthening her daughter by Araloth, to open a portal to a world innocent of Chaos' touch. With the last of her strength, she imbued Araloth with deific energies and sent him through the portal, there to join their child and guardian spirits, fashioned from the souls of Bretonnia's greatest knights.

However the vampire lord Mannfred was freed from his prison by Be'lakor in exchange for exposing Lileath's true form. For an elven Goddess is far to tempting for a prince such as Be'lakor to turn from. Be'lakor tracked her down,and discovering her plan, destroys the re-birthed Old World, resulting in the Age of Sigmar.

Lileath in turn is discovered by Jerrod, Last Duke of Quenelles. Whilst defending her from Be'lakor he decides to abandon Lileath with her lies, and die attempting to return home to Gilles le Breton & Abhorash with the Red Duke in tow; rather than participate in the final battle at Middenhiem.

Lileath is shortly sacrificed by Teclis at her request, and so ends her hold on Bretonnia. it is most likely she has been captured by Slaneesh! This would more than explain his absence, whilst he toys with a Goddess of such power.

Unbeknownst to Lileath, Sigmar did not sit idle. His sons, and warriors he fought shoulder to shoulder with to defend the Old World would have their ancestry left to despair or consumed by Chaos. Risen to the Godly Pantheon Sigmar plucked the guardian spirits from the ether and smote them into the first true Stormhost. The Son's of Breton....

The Son's unlike most of Sigmar's Stormhost's were given a mighty gift. The power of memories. This is bother their curse and blessing. For each time a Son is reforged from battle another precious memory is lost to them. In turn the fight all the harder for a God that they truly believe in, whilst to protect thier memories of ages forgotten.

~~++ The Son's of Breton Army List ++~~



~~++ The Son's of Breton Concept ++~~

This was my first concept, but I'm actually going to stick with individual heraldry on each model!

Hi all,

Quick update as I'm working on a concept for the main colour scheme. Work In Progress at the moment.

Liberator with *Grandhammer:





The main thing I was struggling with is what to paint the bracken to create a good contrast. Ideally I wanted a similar theme to the guys who work on The Dark Age of Sigmar so nice and swampy/gritty.

Water effects, moss, and reeds yet to come!

Hi all,

A brief battle report from last nights *Errantry War*

I've been testing out the new tweaks to my list following an absolute pounding playing a 3x30 Tzangorr list!

This one went much better for me, and the new mobility/alpha is an absolute godsend!

We rolled the mission with two objectives, of which only Hero's and Behemoths can capture. Playing on a 4x4 does restrict things, but I'm looking to get a 6x4 soon!


Deployment, plus first turn.

I deployed most of my army behind a 10 man Protector shield. Unfortunately the terrain I was standing in was mystical and everyone passed the befuddlement apart from my front rank. Meaning my movement was very limited. I then failed my Relictor Pray so couldn't move them that way either.

In the end it was an advantage to me, as it gave my opponent the misdirection to advance towards me, and my Longstrikes!



Here you can see me winning priority for turn two, and maximizing the use of my Hammerstrike Battalion. My Decimators make a 12" charge that sees them into the bulk of the skele spear unit and the archers in the back-line. My Retributors smash into the chariots flank. My Relictor prays go off, and whilst my Protectors fail their befuddled roll I move them up with the pray instead.



Seems I missed a snap from the ensuing combat from here. As you can see it advanced quite a bit. My Decimators make short work of the Skeletons but start to take wounds, especially from the stalkers that come up on turn 3. A second stalker unit charges my liberators on my right flank.

My Retributors make a charge into the Sphinx, and my Paladins now not befuddled make a charge into the second chariot unit.

My Longstrikes come into play and nuke a casket of souls, trimming wounds of chariots and Sphinx as they go. ~These guys are straight savages!

Afraid that's all I took from there, but I learnt a hell of a lot. Next time I'm asking my opponents to take GT orientated and bent lists so that I practice against tough armies.

#BretonniaForever!

Thanks Salvage,

I've been quite inconsistent with which army to stick with, but I see the Son's of Breton leading into my future for sometime. Hopefully that generates some consistency for the viewers, and something to comment on!

I couldn't stop myself last night, and whilst the model is a WIP I went ahead and did a test base.

Heavy inspiration from James Cameron's Avatar. I wanted to improve upon the typical dark swampland and add a little magical hit.

Its still drying when I took the picture but heres my first pass:

Hi boys.

Calling him pretty much done.

Wondering about adding some green OSL to pop from his greatblade?

Had a nightmare with the water effects. Found out the resin base was a little to thin so it leaked. Will have to tape it off and do it again.

Hi all,

Next battle report for you!

I replayed my first opponent, the Tzaangor army I mentioned previously. This time the game match was Knife to the Heart instead of Starstrike.

I got my ass kicked from like 28 VP - 0 last time. With a few lessons learnt and tweaks things went differently:


My deployment. 9" away from enemy deployment zone. 18" gap. That means I'm safe surely!


Enemy deployment. Yes that's 90 Tzaangor!


Tzaangor get first turn and advance across the line. Apart from the third unit in the rear.


Whats this? Oh that's a 4 on their advance and move roll. Whilst still needing a 9/10 to make it in for a charge. Two destiny dice later and both units are in my face turn 1.


The paladin protectors take a solid beating. Losing all but two, and subsequently running. My flanking liberators also take losses. That hurt!


The tide starts to turn with the Hammerstrike Battalion coming down. My Retributors hit hard and fast, whilst my Decimators are caught before they can swing and lose a few. My Longstrikes and prosecutors take out the supporting Gaunt Summoner and shaman. That reduces the Gors ability to wound now on 4+ from 3's.


The thinning out of the horde continues.


Starkly reminded of the third unit yet to come!


My opponent wins the second priority turn and advances his third unit. There's not enough destiny dice to make their charge this time around though! They are left out in the open.

At this stage I mop up the remaining Gors, and we move into turn three. I looked to achieve a Major Victory, but even with the Lightning Storm pray going off I cant get close enough to contest his objective.

As such I go for the Minor Victory (Kill points). In the end there was a solid difference of 300 points in my favour which would easily turn to 700 after taking out the handful of Gors left in the third unit.

We ended the game there as a Minor to me!

Hi all,

Next practice game coming up.

This time against the new Maggotkin Battletome!


Burgle has turn one due to a smaller amount of drops than me. I'm generally content with that as my force is slow moving/reactionary and making the best out of enemy dispositions.

However 20 Blightkings with Gutrot Sprume turning up in my face and outside of 9" was not a fun prospect!


I decided to back up. Which upon realisation was probably the worst thing I can do! I think the mission is duality of death or something of that nature. Which means only hero's or behemoths can capture the two objectives. I handicapped myself as I moved away from the objectives. Despite what might be a fight I don't want to get stuck into, I actually need to advance and get more board control.


The Blightkings make a 6 on their advance roll, practically all by guaranteeing a subsequent charge. I get hammered across my line. Most vitally losing my Prosecutors as I moved them off to the flank.


The aftermath of the grind. I can only get my protectors in so close to the Glottkin due to closer enemy units. Their pretty much useless out where they are. I also use the lightning chariot to get my Decimators onto the left flank to support the Retributors that have come down in order to contest the left most objective. Or atleast kick off the enemy hero.


At the start of turn 3 the Glottkin gets closer and shoot of my Lord Relictor with his 2D6 damage tentacle shooting attack. It's at this point I realise there is no way back. I know don't have the mobility to get my characters anywhere near the objectives to contest them and start winning VPs to the 10 that my opponent will already have.

I conceded it at the end of my turn 3.

Lessons Learnt:
Even if the enemy is bigger, scarier, and smellier. Get stuck in early and maximise mobility around the objectives. VPs win games, atleast initially, until kill points comes into play.

Post by: Luvvo


It turns out that my opponent could not perform that move with the Blight Kings and Gutrot Spume.

The ability states that they must be 9" away from the enemy, but wholly within 6" of a board edge.

Hence deploying across my entire front seemed pretty damn OP.

Should have checked the wording at the time! At least it was learnt in a practice game and not day one of a tournament!

I've asked for a rematch to see how it would have actually panned out.

I had a rethink on my basing as well. Still want to do another test on the grand-blade as I want it more *Stormy/lightning.

Hey Dakka,

I'm looking for some direction.

What can I go to get you guys interested in the plog?

Whats more exciting to see? Step by steps, and better close ups? Squad shots, whole army shots? More battle reports leading upto the GT?

I feel the plog traction has lessened and want to kick it up a gear!

Thanks guys.

I feel bad you get so little back from your posts, and I've wondered if these were reports from like Grand Alliance or something, where there are more active AOS communities? Personally I really don't care for AOS any longer, I just stop in here to see how your armies are shaping up - you do good work, and the Brets are particularly neat - and if you've posted a quickie batrep. So I'd say more batreps if I had to request ... though those you should probably post over in batreps, so there's some kind of life in that forum that isn't just GMG pimping video links. At which point I guess this thread is army progress mostly.

Hi all,

Latest battle report in my practice games for GT.

On a major point I have realised that I've been using an outdated points cost for the Hammerstrike Battalion. So I had to trim 80 points from my list.... and had to apologise to my previous opponents :(

This time around Slyvaneth Vs Son's of Breton!

The mission is battle for the pass. On a smaller table again, but we're also only playing 1.5k a piece.


I win first turn and move up into the terrain whilst capping two objectives.


The Slyvaneth move on up.




I win priority turn 2 and jump at the opportunity to move in. Specifically trying to turn the Slyvaneth left flank and towards their home objective. Protectors/Retributors are perfectly primed!


The combat starts to unfold. At a major cringe moment my Protectors fail their 3" charge into the Tree Lord! The Retributors do solid work on the Kuranoth hunters though.

Whilst the Stardrake chucks around the Dryads like twigs... oh wait.






The Slyvaneth start to strike back! Those pesky woods!


The Treelord having avoiding the Protectors charge decides to reappear behind the LC on SD! *Queue pokemon grass music! A wild Treelord appears!


Revenants appear on my far right flank contesting the objective. So much mobility!


Things start to thin out!

It also dawns on me that I make a mistake here and charge my Protectors into the far left Kuranoth bow hunters with a unit of sisters behind them. Instead of focusing on the enemy objective and vital VPs!


The last picture I took.

I was getting closer to tabling my opponent, but I didn't have a whole lot left myself.

In the end however I had a deficit of 13 VP's. 36 to 23!

Must keep my eyes on the prize!

Tricksy wood spirits!

How is the stardrake? I always felt like the dracoth was obnoxiously strong back when I played (and Stormies didn't have as many options as they do now), and I assumed the drake was similarly amazing for its points ... without I think ever looking at its rules

Hey Salvage!

Thank for keeping my *DM's alive

It was my first time with the Stardrake actually. It does extremely well dishing out a high amount of mortal wounds. A little RNG, but when it goes well it goes well. With a potential to dish out 18 Mortals in the shooting phase alone!

Great for dealing with hordes as well. Forced my opponent to use Inspiring Pres on the Dryads most of the game. It's a little susceptible to taking Mortal wounds, but beyond that a 2+ re-rolling 1's is super!

Hi all,

I had to send some WIP pictures to the WH events team recently. Mainly checking on minor conversions and the like.

Thought I would share some closer snaps, rather than army shots. I'm currently still batch painting the whole army in one go. Seems to be the only way I chew through enough models per session.

Hi all,

Next update on army painting progress and a new battle report!

Over here in England we had a long Easter weekend. So after dodging all of the family commitments and wife's plans I squeezed in some hobby!


Army wide shot.


Retributors


Prosecutors


1x5 Liberators


1x10 Liberators


1x5 Liberators


Protectors


Lord Relictors, Castellant and Griff


Lord-Celestant on Stardrake

Still quite a bit of progress to go. I'd technically be tournament ready now, but I want to get the army finished and to a better standard. Not long left until June!

GT Practice Game:

The battleplan was Starstrike. I was playing the new Daughters of Khaine, with Morathi herself!


The opening battle-lines are drawn up.


The DoK win turn one and start their advance.


My counter move was to deploy my big 10 man Liberator unit, buffed with inspiring presence, and Warding Lantern as a tempting target for the leftmost Witch Elves if they win priority.

As luck would have it at the start of turn Two the star fragment comes down on the left flank of Liberators. Represented by the Shade-spire dice.

The DoK win priority and take the bait. Following all of their buffs and spells going onto the left most Witch Elves, my Liberator line braces for impact. Each Witch was getting 4 attacks, at -1 rend, counting as double damage due to lowering my bravery to 4. (Rule query, if I have Inspiring Presence on can my bravery be affected at all, or do I ignore all bravery modifying abilities/spells. Or is its only impact in negating battleshocks?)


The Witch Elves make their left most charge.


As well as the far right by half an inch!

My Liberators would have to brace very hard over here. Although there were less buffs on the witches!


Battlelines meet!


Despite the 2+ re-rolling 1's with 6's still healing a wound back I lose 5 Liberators. Not to shabby for over 120+ attack coming in on me. Despite this my Liberators have done their job and soaked up the attacks where I wanted them.

The right most Witches charge home into my smaller Liberator unit.


Seems I missed a snap from my movement phase here, but this is my counter charge.

My mistake was to target the Cauldron, Medusae, and Hag behind the left most Witches. At the time I wanted to take out the buffing units as opposed to who was doing the damage. In reverse I should have come down on the Witches as priority leaving the buffing units twiddling their thumbs.

My Relictor's get Lightning Storm off on both Witch elve units. Making them hit on 4's now, which was preferable. Dishing out more mortal wounds in hand with the Stardrakes!


Combats start to thin out the lines.

The two further fragments both come down in the left side of the boar as yous see it.

I Lightning chariot my Relictor out of the right combat onto the objective. Trying to leave the witches tied in combat with my Prosecutors as far away as possible from the star fragments.


The DoK reserves finally come in and Morathi transforms into her big version!

The opponent only needs to make an 8" with re-rolls of 1s to get in and contest the fragments.

Before Morathi had made her transformation I need to make an 8" charge myself with the Stardrake. I unfortunately failed as she was down to 2 wounds and I could have had the Stardrake eat her on a 3+. This is why I moved him into the remaining Witches on the left, putting him in the way of the objective and Morathi.



Sigmar's luck holds out as the the Khineria(sp?) fail both of their charges into the Lord Relictor, and middle star fragment.

Morathi then fails a further 3" charge into the Stardrake. At this stage I win on VP's on the end of turn 3 by 12 to 7.

We play out the Morathi combat because why not, and I end up having Snake for dinner!

Was a fun game and we concluded within the 2.5 hour time frame. Once I get to know my army I should start to speed up, but most time was spent rolling 120 saving throws thanks to thoes witches!

Bonus Pictures of another match up:




Danggg Nurgle are quick these days!

Mega update!! The Sons are really coming along. As much as I dig all the colors you've got going on, I also appreciate that they're starting to get toned down and have some depth added.

Also nice report! Whatever my issues with AOS's rules, it still looks pretty neat when two painted armies slam into each other on proper terrain

Plus cool to see Morathi in action, may need to hunt down some other reports, curious how she's doing.

I feel like most of them have been sat at a basecoat and wash level for months on end. To be fair most of them have.

I keep getting distracted by more things to add to them. Or just a painting block!

I was not really impressed that much by Morathi. She didn't seem to do to much, but sat on an arcane ruin for that +1 to spell casting. Maybe new model syndrome for my opponent though.

Thanks for stopping by!

The next installment in GT practice games!

This one hurt, and felt like a real step back in terms of progress. But lessons were learnt, and mistakes will hopefully not be repeated!

Battle for The Pass Vs Maggotkin of Nurgle


Opening battleline.

My intention was to string my forces out to a degree in order to throw out the enemy deployment. In true Nurgle fashion though. That really didn't make a difference. The Blightkings take the strong center, with Plaguebearers either side, stretched along the front line.

You'll notice I kept my 10 man liberators unit slightly further back as I was not getting first turn and I've seen how quickly Nurgle can move these days. I also set my Prosecutors off to the far right flank hoping to bunny hop the Plaugebearers and get in close to the Glottkin.

Both my Relictor's were on the flanks, in case I wanted to Lightning Chariot a unit over to an opposite flank in order to overwhelm on one side.


Now this is were I start to go wrong. At the start of my first turn no less :(

Nurgle advances in true fashion claiming the VPs on either flank. Utilising the GUO Bell, the Cycle of Corruption (Unnatural Vitality), the Gnarlmaws and run rolls. Practically doubling the Plaugebearers movement.

I felt at the time like I could take advantage of this advance though, and focus down one flank. Of course it was the Plaugebearers with Fleshy Abundance however. I had an 11" charge with the Stardrake, but was blocked by my own Prosecutors so could not swing around further onto the flank. I equally did not want to charge my Prosecutors in just yet either.



We start to trade wounds, taking the majority from mortals wounds due to "Blades of Putrefaction". Looking back I possibly should have brought in my Paladins turn one, to guarantee putting them down where I wanted them. I just didn't want them tangled up with those Plaguebearers.

The Prosecutors and Stardrake do relativity well on shooting though and knock some wounds off the Glottkin.


Turn 2.

Nurgle wins priority. Again a steady advance occurs across the board. The only saving grace is that his far right flank of 30 Plaugebearers remains put on Objective.

The Glottkin and GUO make way their way up the line. Which I had not anticipated, but was happy they were coming closer to my Prosecutors!


The Glottkin charges my Prosecutors, killing them off, whilst still in range of the Stardrake to batter him about to. The Blightkiings make a charge into my far left liberator unit, with Relictor in support.


Without the Prosecutors I had a few choices. My Stardrake was running low on wounds, and the Glottkin himself was down to 4 or so remaining. In hindsight, what I should have done here, is deepstrike onto his home objective with the Retributors, as only the Pox Scrivener was back there. Whilst deepstriking in with my Protectors, but behind the Glottkin not in front of him towards my deployment.

As it happens I fail both charges with my Paladins, and realise how high and dry they are out there.

My 10 man Liberator unit fails its charge into the Plaugebearers and so I decide to pull them into the Blightkings as my flank was taking a beating over there and I did not want them taking my home objective.

Current VP's sit at 10 v 2 in favour of Nurgle.


Turn 3.

Nurgle wins priority again and decides to pull back both the Glottkin and GUO. Making that Paladin gap even bigger.

In a form of small mercy, I got warding lantern on my Stardrake, and due to the Plaguebearers lack of rend I heal back a large amount of wounds from his attacks.



Blades of Putrefaction then hits me like a brick. Specifically my Stardrake. Taking 12 mortal wounds and knocking him out of the game. Without support I left him tanking far too much.

I have consolation charges with my Paladins into the Plaugebearers but at this stage the game is shot and I concede.

Ending VP's of 19 V 2 in favour of Nurgle.

Main Lessons Learnt:

Where would Bretonnia reforged be, without its knights hey Salv!?

Doesn't hurt that they perform well on the charge either!

Oooo tiny teeth, are we talking Nurgling sized?

Hi all,

Another update following this weekends work! Despite the tempting 28 degrees here in the UK this weekend, I persevered and kept at the painting station!

My main objective was to get my new additions up and running. Or at least to the same stages as the rest of the army.





I also focused on bringing my Hero's up to a better standard. Including a small conversation to a Celestant, to a Castellant. Debating swapping the sword out for a halberd to make it more obvious.





Back to the full army shot:



Next step for me is predominately edge highlights, but I do have some core colour layers to get down. The white in particular. I'm tempted to skip ahead and finish my basing and pouring in the water effect. I can dirty up the boots and greaves so I don't have to worry so much about getting my edge highlights in at the bottom of the SCEs.

Thanks,

Next installment of a GT practice game. Running with a newly tweaked list:

Lord Celestant on Stardrake - Mirrorshield / Keen Clawed / Staunch Defender
x2 Lord Castellants
x2 Lord Relictors - Lightning Chariot
2x2 Fulminators
1x5 Paladin Protectors
2x5 Liberators
1x10 Liberators


SCE Vs Sylvaneth - Duality of Death

This was a real slogging fest. Within the GT tournaments you only have 2.5 hours to wrap up the last round for both players. Best case we started at 20:00 and played through til 23:00. So we did overrun in order to finish turn 4. (Must get quicker!)



Opening deployment. Take note of the Wildwood placed in front of the left most objective. I decided to go relatively defensive in that area, and focus on the right flank with my hard hitters. Considering the Treelord was also stationed on the their left flank. Predicting the Kuranoth would also join him.



Slyvaneth get the first turn due to a 2 army drop. Utilising the Gnarlroot battalion and wargrove? Without surprise the dryads zip through the woods and appear in the Wildwood on the left flank. They fail to get mystic shield on then, however the sisters of the thorn do get their spell on them. The Kuranoth hunters both pop up on a newly created wood of the far right objective. The branchwitch also goes through the woods to capture the left most objective.


The Treelord moves to support the Kuranoth, whilst the sisters and eternal guard inch forwards.


My turn arrives. The Stardrake doesn't like the look of the Kuranoth and ideally I don't want to charge him, to benefit from staunch defender. The Dracoth's on the other hand go in, looking to benefit from their 3 damage on the charge. Whilst I also drop in my Protectors behind the Treelord. (In hindsight here, I should have waited to position better for charges.) A 9" charge on the Protectors is always a risk, and I feed in my Liberators and Dracoths piece meal. I shouldn't have worried about being charged, as really Slyvaneth was looking to bunker on the Objective.


I fail the Protectors charge, and my Dracoths do well, but the Kuranoth make thier 4+ rerolling saves! #ChargeBlunted. My Liberators as a supporting action charged in and take heavy losses, eventually running to battleshock.

End of my turn One. Slyvaneth wins priority.


The Eternal Guard decided to charge my left most Fulminators and close the gap on the objective. At the time my opponent forgot the terrain was deadly, losing 5 models! A new unit of 10 Dryads also comes up in a new wood in the middle of the board. Threatening the Protectors or to hold up the Fulminators again.


The combat goes badly for the Eternal Guard, with only 2 to 3 remaining after taking heavy losses and bad bravery checks. The combats roll forward on the right flank, with the Kuranoth dishing out more hurt, my Liberators try to tank what they can!


My Stardrake makes its charge. At this stage I want him to focus on the Treelord due to only Heros/Behemoths being able to capture objectives. I just can't get through his armour save though and the Treelord tanks the Drake easily. My Paladins fail their charge again!


I decide to commit on my left flank as I want to pull the Dryads away from the Objective as best as possible and let my Fulminators at the Bracnchwych.


I decide not to hit the Dyrads, again due to math reasons, but atleast I've dragged half of them away from the Objective.


Seeing my Lord Relictor and Castellant behind the Liberator line, the Slyvaneth use the new 10man Dryad unit to charge and tie them up. They take no casualties charging through the deadly terrain.


The combat progress on the right flank, but I just cant put a decent enough dent into the Kuranoth and Treelord. They either heal back up due to Regrowth, or Kuranoths come back to life, even after eating them! What was odd, is that the Treelord is able to stomp on my Stardrake and make him -1 to hit, as hes fallen over!? The Protectors get 4 wounds through on 6's, however the Treelord saves them all >_<


After dealing with the Dryads on the left flank I finally have an opening to charge in and take hold of the left objective. Having killed both the Branchwitch and Wraith with Rain of Stars, plus some Lightning Storms.

It's just to late though. Whilst I capture that objective to take me to 4 VP's to my opponents 9. A unit of Tree Revenants come up behind my Stardrake, and make a 12" charge. Despite me eating the Treelord finally after enough damage on turn 4, I can't get out of combat with the Kuranoth and now the Revenants in order to get close to the objective and cap. Our time was also run out before being able to start turn 5, so I had no hoping of making back the points, despite Slyvaneth no longer having any heros on the table anymore.

Duality of Death is a real tough nut to crack if your not going first, and come up against superb bunker armies.

Lesson's learnt, and I think I played most things as I should have done. Whilst I could have timed my charges better on the right flank, the saves on Kuranoth and Treelords in Wildwoods are just too damn good to shift!

#Cringing...

I've tweaked my list again, and this is what I want to try out. Trying to focus on synergies as much as possible with my Dracoth Cav.



Thoughts?

Hi all,

Current work over the last weekend focused on bringing my additional two Dracoth's up to scratch.

I didn't get them quite there, but a half decent way at least.

I also focused on some conversions to make my army a little more unique, specifically on my Hereos. I also start work afresh on a "Battle-Damsel".

Whilst rummaging through my bitz box, as I couldn't find the Dracoth riders torso, and cape, I came across so many little things I decided to make up some Objective markers. Wanted these to reflect holy places for my SCE or even the free-peoples they protect.

Current Army Shot:


Objective Markers:


Lord Castellant Conversion:


Knight Heraldor Conversion:


Amber Battle-Damsel:


Thanks,

You crazy

That aside, looks like you're pulling off the late additions just fine Normally I would lament the inclusion of more dracoths (I really hate the dragon-ponies' heads, and that when they were released I assumed they were Auto-Include levels of Obviously Good, given how strong the dracoth hero was), but I really do feel they fit with the Bret thing. Pity that more of them means fewer foot knights (your headswaps really bring the Stormies to life), yet so it goes. Damsel is looking solid too.

Also dig the spreadsheet with role breakdowns and what not

Next practice game is up!

I was not really looking forward to this match up. With Disciples of Tzeentch being the hard-counter to my list with the mortal wound output, and my small model count.

My opponent was only into his second game with his list himself, so there were plenty of things probably missed, or opportunities not taken. He's a great competitive 40K player, but just needs more time to understand the list capabilities.

Mission Type: Scorched Earth


I win the first drop, but have a higher drop count. I did win the roll off however so choose the side of the board that does not have the Mystical terrain square in the middle of the battleline.


A closer look at my opponents list and deployment. The small farmhouse and its stone wall represented the mystical terrain.


Tzeentch has first turn, which is relatively uneventful due to me being out of range and all. The mystical terrain does prove to be difficult however, and he rolls a 1 for both the Tzaangor and the Lord of Change.

I decide on my first turn to try and take his weaker flanks and stay away from the main bulk of his army as best as possible. I know how quickly those Tzaangor can move, and how hard they can hit with the greatblades.

I get quite lucky and make an 8.5" charge on the far right flank. Crashing into the acolytes and chewing through them. Bringing me just in range of the objective. I debated holding it, but with the Lord of Change looming over me I decided to raze it. I get lucky again and burn it for 3 VPs.

Taking me to 6 - 3 VPs end of Turn 1.


I win priority for turn 2 and decide to try and repeat the same success but on my right flank.


He decided to move the acolytes back, whilst still capturing the objective. In the hope I fail my charge. At this stage my Dracoth Cav are in range of the mortal wound output though and take heavy hits. At least 12-13 mortal wounds hit my 4 Dracoth unit, with another 8 on my 2 Dracoth unit still out on my far right flank.

Tzeentch was being fickle again however and the Tzaan and LoC both get beffuddled again.


I think I missed Tzeentch turn 3, but he wins priority. The mortal wounds come pouring out again. By some luck two Dracoth's survive, the Skyfires target them aswell and with a few lucky heals I manage to barely keep the two alive. However this allowed time for my Stardrake and the loan Dracoth to wipe the Acolytes clear of the left most objective. I again decide to raze it, as the mortal wound output can get nasty, so didn't fancy staying around.

It was fortunate that I did, as the end of turn 3 he had outright killed my Stardrake. In a way I think it was still worth it, as I was able to hold up the Tzaangor again, whilst ensuring I take the left most objective.


Without getting befuddled this time the Tzeentch army moves up.Surprisingly the Skyfires move off to the hill with my remaining Dracoth. I think he had forgotten that I had raised the objective. The Tzaangor target my supporting hero blob, targetting the battlemage first. However he was not able to get a great deal into combat as he was conga lining the unit back from the central objective to keep it capped.

I was really expecting the Skyfires to jump over them and harass my middle objective attempting to then charge and burn it to catch up on VP's. Think this was a case of knowing the list capabilities though.


The combat continues with the Hero blob.

[img]https://i.imgur.com/w5RUcaE.jpg"
With only 10 minutes left on the clock we conclude my turn 4 and the end of the game. With a last Heraldor terrain blast, to kill off more Skyfires, the Gaunt summoner, and wound Kairos further.

Total VPs were 14 to 8 to myself if I remember correctly.

Lesson Learnt:

Mortal wounds hurt me like hell.
Pick weaker units, and use my mobility to get around the 18" MW threat range.

Latest painting situation with only two weeks to go until the AoS GT Heat 3!

















Thoughts or any tips to make them better? Stardrake's wings are very much a WIP still!

Can anyone spot the latest list additions following AoS 2.0 list tweaking!? They are not easy to spot



I hope to provide some detailed reports on my experience of Warhammer World and the AoS GT Heat 3 back in June!

Simply I have qualified for the final and now I'm preparing for that in October!

Dropped support heroes to double down on wizard knights then? Seems legit. Also I never noticed that Steelheart's crew had snuck into your army, plus Blacktalon! Good stuff

So AoS 2.0!

Here is my first match in the new edition. Up against Nighthaunt no less!

Matched play, 2k, no assigned realm, playing "Better Part of Valour" battleplan.


My new list!


The Nighthaunt opponent. A Small x3 spirit host unit is located on the far left flank, and a further 5 man Hexwraith unit is on the far right.


Deployment takes place. Nighthaunt decides to take the first turn, made very easily by only having 3 drops thanks to two battalions and taking an extra CP! - We had discussed mid deployment that he would give me the first turn, but as that changed I did alter my deployment in the center slightly.






The ghostly advance!


Liberators, wishing they were Sequitors right now.


Devastating for my center! - My opponent also decides to burn his 3 home objectives, due to my reserves potential! Was not expecting that at all. Its now 3 VP to 0 in Nighthaunt's favour at the end of his turn 1.


The reserves come down!


And fail all of their charges, including the re-rolls. That 9" charge is not making me feel too comfortable about now!


The Dracoth's receive the Hexwraith charge! Delighted they're atleast -1 to hit! Most of the Nighthaunt at this stage bounce off, although the Drakesworn does take 6 damage.


My turn two and I use the Celestial Vindicator +1 attack CP on the Evocators and they obliterate what was a proxied Black Coach & Hero. Before even making their MW rolls!


Before this happens though, spirit hosts from the center charge against my far left Liberators, and the smaller x3 spirit host is setup 9" away from my back right objective. Both Protected by 5man liberators squads. One of which is in Mystical terrain on my right. The charge goes well and both units make it it. Doing enough MW's to the far left Liberators that the objective is immediately burned down. Whilst the charge is made by the smaller spirit hosts into my right flank, and by the supporting Hexwraiths. The middle objective is also burnt, before my turn two charge. Taking Nighthaunt to 5 VPs to my 0.


Things start to look really grim, when I now only have the last remaining objective on the table, and its only just out of contention by one model! A new spirit host unit is setup ready to charge though! Luckily for me, it does not make its 9". Still in the game... just!


From this point onwards, it was now really mopping up for me. I charges the Drakesworn into the spirit hosts to delay them, and everything else into whatever was left in the middle of the table. The damage output of x4 Dracoths and x10 Evocators with +1 attack is simply brutal. All whilst my rend was negated aswell!

The Drakesworn does go down by mortal wounds, but he had done his job and kept the Nighthaunt there.

I win turn 4 priority and make the charge with my Dracoth cavalry to wipe the remaining spirit hosts.

Giving me a very tight victory of 8VPs to 5 VPs due to holding the one objective consecutively for what would have been 5 turns, and wiping the enemy from the table.

Really enjoyed the game. Really felt the difference with the new priority roles. I had two times when we both rolled the same, and lost out for two double turns so I suppose that balances things in a way. Could really have done with them though!

Sweet report, nice pics! Your crew looks great on the table, and I dig the colors on them airbrush undead.

What's the actual list you're using, out of curiosity? Mostly wondering about artefacts and such.

Heya Salvage!

Glad you like it.

I have two versions of the list, at its core:

Celestial Vindicator Stormhost

General - Drakesworn Templar
Stormlance & Stormrage Blade
Single-minded Fury
Keen Clawed

Knight-Vexillor

3x5 Liberators

10 Evocators

4 Fulminators

2 Fulminators


It's second iteration is very similar but replaces the smaller Fulminator unit in lieu or better charge potential when entering as scions of the storm:

+ Lord Arcanum on foot.
+ Cogs
- 2 Fulminators
