@acebaur The Knight Of Shrouds for the Shroudguard isn’t keyword KNIGHT OF SHROUDS. It’s “Knight of Shrouds”
Which isn’t the same as the “Knight of Shrouds on Ethereal Steed”
It’s like the Changehost for Tzeentch. It’s “Lord of Change” not LORD OF CHANGE
Interesting ... the Battalion ability conflicts with the labeling on the unit requirement.
So, unit requirements aren’t keyword bold. But Battalion ability is ...

I just assumed that him being on a horse wouldn't restrict him from the battalion
For the change host is there more than one lord of change?

@acebaur Kairos and the Exalted Lord Of Change are both LORD OF CHANGE but not “Lord of Change” the use of KEYWORD BOLD in Warscroll battalions to denote specific models vs generic unit types.
The “Lord of Change” (Not keyword) is the specific name of the lord of change model. Whereas the keyword would denote any model that met the keyword requirement.
The only two issues I can see is that the Battalion Ability uses keyword bold in describing the units.... and they changed the Battalion format.
That ... I think means we’re in FAQ territory.

Also you'd think that that GW would want to include their newest model in the battalion
But I think you are right, it needs a FAQ

I’ve sent off an email to the AoS faq team... it’s ... grey.
And I don’t own the Azyr app to check it ...

Speaking of which I think it's ridiculous that I have spend an additional 20 dollars when I already own the digital codex

@mdtm1g14 Idoneth Deepkin don’t appear to be validating leaders in Battalions.

@FreylisUK how is the celestant prime? I was thinking he'd be a good stand in for Imperius

Not used him but he does hit like a freight train.

Jul 16 2018 18:09
I was thinking about going sacrosanct because I really like the sequitors
Wondering if I shouldn't use a cheaper unit to represent Imperius as the CP is sooo expensive

@rweyrauch Other than changing the title to 2018 edition.
What's your plan? (technically I did update the notice....)
OftKilted
@OftKilted

@rweyrauch Readme updated.

@OftKilted do you play Nighthaunts?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jul 16 2018 21:43
No, but I get harassed by a good friend of mine who does.
He's been up to his eyeballs prepping for the NOVA GT.
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Jul 16 2018 21:44
Lol, I picked them up because of the new mini's
OftKilted

What's up?
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Jul 16 2018 21:44
Was going to ask what you run for a 2k list?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jul 16 2018 21:44
Ahh, I enjoy the models, and have a bunch of them for WHQ.
So ... He runs 2x 40 man chainrasp squads. Lady Olynder, 6 spirithost squad.
Spirit Torment, unit of hexwraiths
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Jul 16 2018 21:46
Damn 80 chainrasps?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jul 16 2018 21:46
Might be 1 x 40, and 1x 20.
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Jul 16 2018 21:46
Still a lot lol
I like the grimghast guys and the new Revanents
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jul 16 2018 21:47
Chainghasts, and a guardian of souls.
I might be missing something.
the serious beatstick in the group are the Spirit Hosts.
He also had the endless spell, mirror and the swords.
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Jul 16 2018 21:48
Nice
I love the new Reikenor model
He's dirt cheap too
Actually they are all pretty cheap for named guys
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jul 16 2018 21:49
They are, but they also are minimal wound models.
Olynder is only 7 wounds.
Their challenge is that in a Nighthaunt army they can't summon.
They can bring stuff back.
as long as the unit has not been wiped
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Jul 16 2018 21:51
Yeah true
They can get a lot of healing though
I can't wait to try them out
Why doesn't he run any of the reapers?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jul 16 2018 21:57
Hmm ... don’t recall seeing him with them. Or he Myrnmourn banshees
So, to put that huge unit into perspective, it went up against Drycha and Alerielle. Drycha killed 15 with the squirmlings as I recall
So, here’s a question for you.
Would having a Soulwars “Points and unit sizes” in Battlescribe help any?
And as I think about it, he might have had a unit of reapers in the woods that got wiped by Durthu
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Jul 16 2018 22:13
Probably not because at least for me I already started looking at how to expand it to a full army
Of GW screwed us by giving us 4 reapers and 5 glaivewraths
Of course*

It was more that it wasn’t a clean jump from doubling a box set.
Though doubling a box is an odd situation.
You don’t need 2 knights on Ethereal steeds ... or 2 lord executioners
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Jul 16 2018 22:47
Yeah
Though I will end up with two executioners
Have you seen the new one?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jul 16 2018 22:49
Yep, and there is the new store birthday guardian of Souls

If anyone likes dwarves (or the AoS FW command sets in general) buy now
because the dwarf command set just went LCTB
