World Breaker's Sigh
Given GW seem pretty dedicated to making sure that every faction which can support a self-contained army will get a 2E Battletome of some description, hopefully Ironjaws are due to get a more detailed overhaul at some point over the next year or so even if there's no major releases for them.The latest General’s Handbook is almost upon us – and with it, a new season of matched play! Today, we’re …www.warhammer-community.com
Been several articles previewing the stuff from GHB2019, this is the matched play stuff.
Personally I am interested in the new 1kpts style games and the 'wacky' deployment styles.
The points stuff here seems fine - my Ironjawz sound to be getting cheaper again but I remain unconvinced that points reductions are what's needed for the faction. They simply lack tools and making their various beatsticks cheaper doesn't help much unless they get ridiculously cheap. E.g.: so many more bodies that you just don't care about mortal wound spam. So many more bodies that Slaanesh 50%+ of the time striking first can't kill or cripple the units. So many more bodies that a Gristlegore King on Terrorgeist can't just auto strike first and wipe the unit out in melee. Might be able to afford some allies to be cheap screens and shooting though.
Stormcast Evocators going up is entirely expected, the other Paladins coming down is also expected. Vanguard getting cheaper is a nice surprise - especially if it helps my Longstrikes! Also means I get to have more Gryph-Chargers which makes me inordinately happy. Would love to see Liberators get a discount though, they're just...sad.
