So the app has a bug where it's showing both of the reavers abilities as a reroll to hit and they no longer have the +1 attack for a totem nearby.

Do they still have the totem boost?

They do, it is now wholly within 16".

There are a lot of new changes in this book. Quite a few feel like a nerf. Like the Bloodstoker specifically only works on Khorne Mortals now. No more whipping Skarbrand to make him faster (which made no sense anyway, but was frigging hilarious in concept).

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

In this new tome Reavers are never going to fill a horde role on a 32mm base. It is just too difficult to get 30/40 in buff range after the first turn. Even when buffed up to 3 attacks many enemy horde units on smaller bases will out fight just with sheer numbers of attacks .

I now see them as a battalion tax of MSU's for bloodtithe and speedbumps which is a shame as I have 140+ of them.

Still it saves me having to paint the majority of them

A wise man never plays leapfrog with a Unicorn.

My interpretation of unreasonable force falls somewhere between
shooting them with a gun that fires werewolves, and dropping a volcano on them.

Well, a unit of 10 can potentially have 51 attacks that re-rolls 1s. I think Dark Feast is better than Gore Pilgrima in this book.

The 32mm base hurts reavers badly. I would actually drop them to 60 points as it stands, but bump it to 80 if they had 25mm. The larger base size makes wholly within buffs more difficult and severely limits how many get into 1" melee range. Combined it gets worse since to get a bunch into melee range they need to spread out, but to keep ahold of their buffs they need to clump up.

Now they still put out enough attacks to be decent and I would not call them bad, but I feel they are a bit sub-par.

A completely unfair comparison but 10 plague monks for the same points puts out 30 attacks on the charge re-roll all hits, with no buffs
