Worse melee weapon(4+ to wound vs 3+), hard to cast native spell and while special rule is interesting suffers from lack of range and aos3 nerfed damage dealing endless spells.

whats wrong with the knight Arcanum?

For 10pts more (I think) you can take Lord Arcanum with better melee, more useful spell and the ability to stop one friendly model per turn from dying vs just D3 MW spell and weak ability that keeps ESpells from moving with 3".

If you're on a budget, Knight Incantor is 20pts cheaper and auto-dispells one spell per game.

It goes beyond the point cost; the Knight Arcanum has no role. The army has other wizards, the army has other (better) spells to deal ranged MWs, and stopping predatory endless spell movement is so niche as to be useless let alone at such a completely impotent range. It could be board wide and the hero would still not be worth taking. Not everyone takes endless spells and of those only a small fraction are predatory.

As a design choice GW obviously wants all-thunderstike armies to be viable (which is cool IMO but that's another matter) and so they need a wizard. But I just feel like... the model could have been a Knight-Incantor in Thunderstike armour with the keyword and an extra wound as a 15 point upgrade. That would have been fine and actually done something to combat warscroll bloat.

To go full bore wishlisting, let us upgrade any non-thunderstrike to a thunderstike version for 15 points and players can CONVERT the option. Heresy I know.

SCE translocation and lord arcanum fixes predictable. Not particularly surprised by command trait change either.

Good for orruks. Just got to remember how many AoD/whatever I have previously ordered

Orruk players got hopes of mighty destroyer not been nerfed squashed.

The pile in during hero phase is going to be super niche situation.

Sloggoth can be now safely be bought for gits.

Boltboyz are fixed pose bodies as expected but at least the kit has 6 heads including the champion and 4 crossbows.

Retailers have Anasta on preorder this week whereas GW seem to be holding her for direct on the day release next Saturday.

Yikes, 55 CAD for 3 models? GW really is high up their own arse for thinking that's anywhere reasonable pricing for a unit that's in a starter set. They're one of the few things that would make me interested in potentially adding kruleboyz to my Ironjawz but at that price point, heck no.

Cross your fingers that they "might" appear in the next AoS Partworks comic release. That said it could be a year or more before that releases IF it does and IF it has cruelboyz in it

Yup, unfortunately they're one of the main things making Kruleboyz a competitive subfaction so that's gonna drive up the prices or availability on stuff like eBay. I'd be fine if it was like at least 6 for 55, but 3 for models that aren't even big calvary stuff like Gore Gruntas is bonkers.

Probably late to the party but the Sigmar infantry box sets are not dual? They look individual boxed kits and some push fits?
The Lord is also 2x bigger than a normal man.
Prices are not the best either specially on the boxed kits with just 3 man

Aside from the halberd guards and the beefy shield boys, the prices for the infantry are surprisingly sane for 2021 GW tho?

Yeah, the Hobgoblins are actually currently the cheapest out of 20-man infantry boxes when it comes to AoS. And the thinner Stormcast are actually a bit cheaper than the older, beefier ones. 31.50 for 10 Vindicators vs 37.50 for 10 Liberators.

Sorry but a box of judicators was packed with options and is 1 pound more? I mean you could build them with maces or swords with shields or greatmaces etc... I mean you could potentially have 2 different units from 1 box... Thats why Im surprised these are split and not dual kits but rather mono weapon 10 man box sets with less options.

If you ask me thats a downgrade in bits and flexibility and bump in price as consequence.

Furthermore that was the appeal of a multi weapon kit coming after the starter boxes, with more bits so the bump in price was ok. If its to be the same shiz as a snap fit starter whats the point?

So if I want 5 man with spears and 5 man with swords I need to buy 20!

BTW aren't the praetors the same as the Indomitus with no options?

I think GW just changed the typical release patterns for the worst again.

Yeah NAFTA would mean it makes sense to lump the US and Mexico but GW puts Mexico in the 'Rest of the World' category.

The sword boys and the spear boys are not the same unit with 2 weapon options. They're two separate units.

As for judicators being "packed", I pray to gods that none of these kits is as bad as the judicators i had to put together. literally worst kit GW released since AoS 1.0 dropped.

Glad to see it. I hope this marks a complete overhaul or even removal of the cycle allegiance ability. It doesn't mechanically represent what Nurgle armies are supposed to be. Also get rid of run & charge off Gnarlmaws because that is again completely out of line with what Nurgle armies are thematically.

Anyone else think that the Sorcerer's fly head looks a bit off on the cover of the Battletome? It's been bugging me since it was revealed, as it seems to stick out from the rest of the art like a sore thumb, even though the body fits right in.

I like the one in the art better, actually. It is more hybridized instead of straight insectoid, and imo decidedly more hideous as a result.
