So house raven Valiants are stupidly, disgustingly good with the Raven Stratagem used in shooting
since it gives a reroll to every single roll of 1, including variable hits, and a good chunk of the weapons are variable (super-flamer, siegebreakers)

Well that's nice

also
when you advance all heavy weapons become assault, and you take no penalty to shoot assault
so you're in range really fast
its pretty up there with the Terryn gallant rush for raw alpha strike power

i had thought about trying that, when I read the whole "Assault Weapons become heavy, and no penalty for assault!" at the time I assumed I read it wrong...surely that's not what they could mean...right?! Well, I was gloriously wrong ;)

So I was building my achillus and galatus
Then I looked at the FW beta rule sheet
And suddenly was VERY happy I built the galatus with his upper arm joint magnetized; putting basically a short range twinlas on a custodes Dread is pretty good

Nice
@alphalas are there beta rules I missed for the Galatus?

Did a big terrain day for WGCX yesterday. We have two more full days of if scheduled before the con kicks off
We ordered a metric shitload of terrain from FLG that arrives this week -- so we're going to have to get that all done as well as getting the remaining refurb/repair/repaint work. Which is good, since BoLS asked me for banners
These are a couple I came up with
WGCX Banner 6 300x250.png
WGCX Banner 5 300x250.png
But my favorite -- and hence the one they just won't run -- is this one:
WGCX Banner 4 300x250.png
Have I mentioned that coming up with marketing/advertising for your event that just doesn't outright suck out loud is hard? No? Well...it is.

@Mad-Spy Thanks for fixing those - You should be able to modify the BS/A based on loadout choice btw
Would probably make it easier to reference on the fly for users.

Right on @tekton but hopefully that won't be necessary. Terrain is kind of a sensitive subject in the TO world so we're working hard so no one has anything to complain about. :)

Jun 24 2018 20:58
Stormcast Eternals, Stormcast Eternals (Adding in Extremis Chamber), Stormcast Eternals (Adding in Vanguard Chamber), Stormcast Eternals (Adding in Sacrosanct Chamber)
Bonus, there's still 3 more chambers to exploit for money
I mean, "Open for lore reasons"
That's why I'm happy with small armies, like Treepeople.
I have a chance to actually collect a full set.
Also. Ents.
My sylvaneth are hellbent on the destruction of all until they find their wives. They've lost them.
