I just realized something this morning
skaven just got really scary in 2.0
because they can now use the command ability of an allied grey seer to prevent battleshock casualties

Well... we already know that they took down Nagash’s pyramid.

on top of them being damn good casters
scary part is with points changes, you can take two greyseers and a block of 40 clanrats as allies easy
exactly 400

And Clans Pestilens can basically Ally with pretty much anyone except Tzeentch.

my friend loves skryre and has been wanting to get back into things

Issue is that normally Skaven don’t have the ability to Ally with most armies.
Sounds like an opportunity for them :smile:

between the alliegiance stuff and the ability to use other command traits i think he got his wish

Gonna ask here just in case: noone here plans to mainain WHFB repo, am I right?
OftKilted

I don’t have any plans for that. The rules for WHFB are basically static at the current moment.
@amis92 And hordes of minis in huge blocks and on movement trays are scary :wink:
@amis92 What are the issues?

Uufff ... I can ... tentatively take a quick peek
That sounds like it is totally unusable.
Are there no current repo-maintainers listed for it?

Along with base size recommendations
Officially if a Warscroll has a date on it, and a different one doesn’t, we now get to use the one with the date. If two scrolls don’t have dates you get to choose.

@FreylisUK Do you want to grab the new Nurgle faq updates? If not, I’ll catch them in my pass tonite

I wonder how they plan to do major warscroll updates, because I haven't seen any big ones aside from the sylvaneth ones
supposedly a couple were happening in destruction but nothing so far

They put a whole bunch of errata in there. They depreciated most of the Grand Alliance books warscrolls
Chaos still has StD and Skaven in it (With the exception of Pestilens) But I think the Death one was entirely depreciated.
They listed multiple warscrolls as being replaced by newer publications.

yeah, iirc the ones that were expected to change were some of the battletome BCR ones (to make thundertusks not degrade so fast)

They faq’d away summoning seraphon spells too
The ones on each warscroll I mean
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 27 2018 21:14
yeah, same with sylvaneth summoning effects
looks like destruction will be bottom of the barrel again
but I'm fine with that
means I can just build stuff for aesthetic, then if I win even better

Warscroll Keywords now have true meaning... and if they don’t match your allegiance you have to take them from your “Allies” points.
Though the question might be where do the points for those forces
That are on that Warscroll come from
IE Fatesworn Warband is everchosen ... do all the forces on that Warscroll now need to come from allies?

And ... their rules writers still have issues when describing who goes first in the first turn. And be thankful that you don’t have the German edition ... which had the who goes first Rules completely invalidated

@OftKilted Yeah, I'll try and cover it on my lunch break tomorrow. Do you want me to maintain the KO going forwards as well?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 27 2018 22:33
@FreylisUK I’m not opposed to having you add yourself on the maintainers list for KO. We probably want to check with @Cupropituvanso to see if they still want to be maintaining it.
