It can be both.
Gotta admit that's some slick decal work

something a little different... I have a 20PL tournament tonight, the only objective is "Slay the Warlord", I'm taking my Craftworld Army, list is: Battalion, Ulthwe (for the 6+++),
  • Autarch with Shimmerplume, Mark, Reaper Launcher, 4PL
  • Warlock, Singing Spear, 2PL
  • Guardian Defenders w/ Shuriken Cannon Platform 5PL
  • Rangers, 3PL
  • Rangers, 3PL
  • D-Cannon Support Weapon 3PL
Autarch is the Warlord, bubble wrap him with the Guardians, Rangers can target the opposing Warlord and D-Cannon can shoot things that try to hide out of LOS. BS works it out to 449 points
Warlock is Conceal/Reveal to double the buff on the Autarch from the Shimmerplume

im assuming there's a rule against putting your warlord in reserves?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 01 2018 11:07
yeah, everything has to start on the table
hence, exactly 0 deep strike shenanigans

Aug 01 2018 11:08
okay, but what about skyleaping? :x
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 01 2018 11:08
and the table is only 2 x 2
yes, I thought about that, and I have some swooping hawks
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 01 2018 11:09
an autarch can do it though ^^
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 01 2018 11:09
ah... but I didn't think about skyleaping a hawk winged autarch off the battlefield
yeah, that feels a little beardy

as long as you bring him back onto the table before the game ends, he doesnt count as being slain
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 01 2018 11:10
(and I already build the Autarch and I don't have the wings with me)
(unless I use the ones from the Exarch I might have in the box "anyway")

Aug 01 2018 11:10
yeah, im a cheesebag. but if i see a loophole, im going to point it out :smiley:
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 01 2018 11:10
it is a tournament
the only problem there is he is then 5PL
which means something has to drop
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 01 2018 11:11
clearly intended to be more fun than competitive, though right?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 01 2018 11:11
yeah, it's after work - 6pm - 10pm, quick bash up and go
thought I'd share here and check I wasn't missing anything silly

looks fine to me
I'd advise against swooping him off the field
it's a fun event
nothing on the line but laughs

:+1:
and the best thing is (apart from the Autarch I built last night) I have a fully painted army!! :-)

That's my pipe dream.

yazzooo!! I love playing with painted dudes

I keep getting busy with life and then I get new models and want to build them to play and then they just get added to the grey horde
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 01 2018 11:20
heheheheh
I have a fairly substantial grey horde too
but mine mostly stay unbuilt

On the army list front, I had a different option with a farseer and warlock conclave and dropping the support weapon... It might be more fluffy but I don't think it is as powerful... Any thoughts on that option?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Aug 01 2018 14:54
I'm a fan of fluff, so if it's not for anything but bragging rights and laughs - go fluff
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 01 2018 15:12
:+1: I have the models for both options, so I'll see what everyone else is bringing and go either way depending :smile: I don't want to bring a spoon to a knife fight - even if it is fluffy, losing by having your face stuffed up your backside is not fun!!

I won't play in an event without being fully painted
This results in some mad painting marathons sometimes, but hey, you gots to have standards
I bought some storage-cabinet-bin things a while back (they're are wheels! Wee...got them for $6 each at Goodwill) and I've been organizing my hobby supplies...and models...and bits sprues...
I have a tank drawer
Actually 2
One that's just Leman Russ sprues...another that's just tanks in various stages of work...
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe might have a problem...

BTW, I brought my "cheese" list... Turns out, it is the least cheese here... I'll take some photos of the other Armies and share them later...
