  1. "As I recall, 1/2” is the default mêlée range in AoS, but there are mêlée weapons have a range stat, just like shooting weapons, so units with spears or other large weapons often fight at 2”. Perhaps they’re going to add something like this in WH40k for those few units that have really large mêlée weapons? " To clarify--The "1/2" range in AoS is the distance a unit must move its first model within an enemy model to complete a charge against that enemy unit.After that each model in the charging unit is free to move the full charge distance but is under no requirement to even move into conta
  2. Bonecast Eternals..expect new "Chambers" to opened regularly over the next year or so... Kidding aside,,its probably the first new army release for AoS that im not really grooving on.First off wtf is up with the rictus grins??..I mean its a great look for the Deathgaurd Pox Walkers,,but elite skeleton warriors?...also the 4 armed dude seems out of place too.Ahh well,probably because I,like many were expecting a much more expanded on Deathrattle army with chariots and new archers and cav models.As it stands now,the only place for regular skeletons is in Legions of Nagash,,as just b
  3. In escalation leagues that I have ran and participated in,no Behemoths are allowed until it gets to 1k points.Not sure what they are doing in this case though. Also GW never did official guildlines for army construction sub 1k points so yes,,the event organizer needs to come up with the number of required battleline,heros,and or if the General needs to be a Hero or not...things like that.
  4. July 6th at Geeks and Games in Oregon city we will be holding a one day three round AoS matched play tournament using 3 scenarios from the OFCC AOS event packet. This is mainly a primer for the OFCC event as I will be using 3 of the scenarios from that event pack along with any realm rules.No painting requirement as players will likely still be fleshing out builds. Cost is 20.00 per ticket with 16 tickets available total. event link https://www.bestcoastpairings.com/eventlanding/be95m6gb?embed=false
  5. I dont see any reason to think it will be anything but a warband based skirmish game.Likely more detail in character/unit developement as well as additional gameplay mechanics.The box says "Skirmish" so this will likely take the lead over the current version of skirmish. I would expect warscrolls for AoS play with all new models,,mainly since virtually every model released in games related to AoS have warscrolls and points for use in the main game as well. I also highly doubt the game will remain Chaos focused,the game wont survive otherwise.On that note,starting the game out with wh
  6. This is a mega release for Destruction! So far as whats leaked and known,,there is likely several viable competative builds in this mix.Grots(of course),Spiderfang army,Troll army and one that is looking very interesting,,the all Squig army as Squigs will be battleline if the General is a loonboss.The Hero on Mangler will give squigs +1 to wound. Spiderfang will probably be the MW dealing army,,poison is buffed from the Bad Moon now to trigger on a 5+,,like the spider bosses ability,this coupled with a command ability on an Arachnarok Hero that doubles its venom ability will result i
  7. Agreed,,,,likely a combined tome along the lines of what LoN is.They can get alot of mileage out of those if they are done well. Hoping the Grot one is in the same vein as well:)
  8. Just wrapped up my last 5 models yesterday,,all painted and ready to go! Speaking of painting,,have one player wanting to know what the painting standard is?..I know its 3 color min and all that but what specifically is the standard for the event?
  9. The recent FaQ has pretty much dealt with the command ability stacking issue by changing many warscrolls to denote that they cant stack,however there are those that have seem to be intentionally not changed and im wondering if stacking with those will be allowed?..one that comes to mind is the Ironjawz Waaagh and Mighty Waaagh abilities.
  10. Nice to see a Vancouver scene formed up:)
  11. Naa,,we just use matched play rules pretty much,,though sometimes play using the open play or narrative scenarios or even the open play cards that are now just charts in the book.We have pretty much agreed that the new Malign Sorcery expansion is part of the game as well. For 500 pts you will just need one Battleline selection,then up to 2 at 1000.Also no named Behemoths until 1500 pts...so yeah no bringing Arkhaon with Tzeench dice at 1k..or Nagash. We all have a pretty good selection of armies,though I would say that Destruction is probably least represented in our casual sessions,
  12. Im running an escallation league up at Geeks and Games in OC that starts this friday at 6:00:) July is 500 pts and it goes up by 500 per month up to 2500 in Nov,,we are topping it off with a grand battle over 4 tables linked with realmgates.There is a 10.00 per month fee that pays for monthly prizes for best painted,best sport and the top points leader,I have a points system worked out for this.There is also a 10% discount on store purchases on league night. We regularly have anywere from 4 up to 12+ players each week.I only play if theres an odd number of players so I garantee you wi
  13. I see that Malign Sorcery is listed as an expansion to the main game.What are the plans for the OFCC event? Fully allowed,parts or none at all?
  14. Magore`s are probably the best face smashers in the game right now,though they have issues with the larger warbands that tend to play objectives or a more "hit and run" type game.Farstriders are a tough band to run,,I really like the way they play,as in the options available to them however they seem to be a bit too much of a "jack of all trades" warband and thus are difficult to score consistantly with. Im probably going to switch over the Sepulcher guard for a bit as I do like to play objectives and they are probably the best at it,My current AoS tourney list is LoN so this way ill be pl
