AoS Destruction Grot Moonclan Shaman

Moonclan Grot Shamans are wizards and mushroom lover. As they are goblins they are not strong on their own. The first rule of battling with Grot is that you need numbers! Strength and Weapons Ok, don’t think that you will put up much of a fight in combat. If you do hit with your Moon Staff then it will do D3 damage. The Moon Staff does have a 2″ reach. You can use this reach to make sure there is a line of Grots between your Shaman and the attackers. Moonclan Shaman Abilities Ok, so if they are not great in combat so why take them? For the magic of course! And Moonclan Shamans are quite good at magic too. They can cast one spell and dispel another spell a turn.However the Shaman can take a magic mushroom each Hero Phase. If he does there is a 5 in 6 chance that you can add 2 to your casting roll. You need to decide if you want to take the mushrooms and roll for their results before you roll to cast your spell. On the whole it is worth the risk. Moonclan Shaman Signature Spell: Curse of the Bad Moon…

AoS Destruction Moonclan Grot Warboss

The Moonclan Grot Warboss is the meanest nastiest Grot around.  The thing is is that a mean nasty Grot still dosent amount to much. Grot Warbosses work best when backing up and surrounded by thier grot underlings. Grot Warboss Weapons The Grot Warboss is not the strongest fighter. He does have a few weapon options. Of all the options I would rscommend the Moon Prodder. This is the weapon that Skarsnik, Warlord of the Eight Peaks had. If you have the Night Goblins from the ‘Battle for Skulls Pass’ box set then the Night Goblin Warboss in that set was supposed to be Skarsnik, however the Squig on that model is far too small to be called a ‘Great Cave Squig’. So here is a ‘house rules’: Some Moonclan Warbosses have a Moon-prodder and junior squig. Melee Weapons Range Attacks To Hit To Wound Rend Damage Junior Squig 1″ 2 4 3 -1 1 Junior Squig Abilities: Junior Squigs have no special abilities. Grot Warboss Abilities The Grot Warboss comes wih a special rule that adds an extra chance of survivability. Dead Tricksy The ability of Grot Warbosses to dodge blows, or to place another grot in the way is…

AoS Destruction Moonclan Grot Squigs, Mangler Squigs, and Squig Hoppers

Age of Sigma Night Goblin Squig Hoppers

‘Squigs’ or Squiggly Beasts are fungus based life forms that the Moonclan Grots use as beasts of Burden and some time food. Squids come in all sizes and a variety of shapes, however they all tend to be bipedal with a mean attitude. In this article we will have a look at all the different Squids and how to use them in Age of Sigma games! AoS Destruction Moonclan Grot Cave Squigs and Squig Hurders Squigs are cheap harassing units that can use to disrupted your opponents manoeuvres and ability to catch objects. They are not strong or tough so don’t expect them to delay the enemy long, but a well placed speed bump can make all the difference! Oh for a Squig Hurder! Squigs have quite a bite causing D3 wounds with -1 rend, however they only hit on a 5+ wounding on 3+. This means that you wound 22.22% of the time, or just over 1 in 5 times. The way to improve this is to have a Squig Hurder. With a Squig Hurder within 5″ the chance of hitting comes down to 4+. This means that you will wound 33.33% of the time. That’s much better! The…

AoS Order Aelf Swordmaster Tactics

Age os Sigmar Order Aelf Swordmasters of the Eldrich Council

The Swordmasters are the heavy armour heavy hitting foot solders of the Aelf army. Thier great swords hit often and cut deep. General Swordmaster Tactics Swordmasters are elite units this means that you will want them to take on the more difficult enemy units. The crunch is that the enemy will do thier best to avoid getting thier best units sliced by the Swordmasters and may try to tie them up will large cheap units. As the Swordmasters are on foot you will need to engineer situations where the Swordmasters get in to combat with the right targets. Swordmaster Weapons and Abilities The Aelf Swordmasters only has one weapon, a double handed sword, however they are experts using these swords. First off they have 2 attacks each wounding 44.44% per attack each. They also re-roll 1’s to hit  so will wound almost once per combat round per so there are 2 extra 1/6th chances of hitting at 44.44%. This means the total chance of hitting is 103.69% per Swordmaster (just over 1 chance of wounding each) befor saves. When saves are rolled the Greatswords get -1 rend too. Deflect Shots This is an unexpected bonus ability. In the enemies shooting…

AoS Order Free Peoples Freeguild General

The Freeguild General is a natural General to choose if you are fielding a Free Peoples army. He comes either on foot or on horse and can be armed in a number of ways. In the Warhammer Fantasy Battles game the Freeguild models made up the Empire army. If you have, or can get hold of some Warhammer Empire models then you will have the core of a Freeguild army. The first point at note is that the Freeguild General comes either on horse or on foot and the two play quite differently. General Freeguild General on Foot Tactic The Freeguild General on foot was the Battle Standard Bearer in the 8th edition Warhammer Fantasy Battles. The Freeguild General on foot is a great general to have supporting your rank and file units. He can be armed with a great weapon that will aid the troops if you are faced with a monstrous creature. The Freeguild General’s Command ability will be useful keeping the rank and file troopers in order. Another option is to arm the General on foot with a sword and war banner. This improves the battleshock rolls for all Free peoples units in 24″ range. 24″ is…

AoS Order Free Peoples Tactics

The Stormcast Eternal are not the only humans fighting to restore order in the Age of Sigmar realms. There are also the forces of Bretonnia and the also the Empire / Guilds. In this section we will have a look at the tactics for Free Peoples! The two Human forces have opposing styles of play. The Bretonnia army consists of Elite Knights backed up by low quality serfs and archers. The Empire and Guilds army usually consists of larger units of pike men and musketeers backed up with a few elite units of magic users and horsemen. To really mix things up have a think about fielding the best of each army to create really effective force! Forces of the Freeguilds The forces of the Freeguilds seem to be styled on the armies of the Renaissance Wars that raged through Italy between 1494 to 1559. The Freeguilds are models from the Warhammer Fantasy Battles where it was a well developed army. This means that you should be able to find units to fulfil most needs. Freeguild General on Griffon Freeguild General on Horse and Foot Demigryph Knights Freeguild Outriders Freeguild Pistolers Freeguild Greatswords Freeguild Guard Freeguild Handgunners Freeguild Crossbowmen Freeguild Archers…

AoS Orruk Black Orc Big Boss Tactics

Age of Sigmar Orruk Black Orc Big Boss

In Age of Sigmar Black Orcs are called Ironjawz. so Really this model should be the Ironjawz Big Boss, but as hew was left out of the Ironjawz army book we will keep to how he is known in the Age of Sigmar App, the call him the Black Orc Big Boss. Black Orcs and Ironjaws are bigger tougher cousins of the regular Orruks. Also they tend to have better weapons and armour. The Black Orc Big Boss is the biggest and badest of the mob that earned respect and following by beating up anyone that argued with him! Also see: AoS Orruk Ironjaws Tactics General Black Orc Big Boss Tactics There is nothing subtle about the Black Orc Big Boss. He is designed to get stuck in to the close combat wielding his Deff Choppa and lobbing of heads left right and centre. The Black Orc Big Boss can make a very acceptable general. If you do have him as your general then he works best in mob or two of Black Orcs and Ironjaws. However there are usually better options available as an Orruk General, so the main role for the Black Orc Boss is as a secondary…

AoS Stormcast Eternals Tactics

Age of Sigmar Stormcast Eternal Lord-Celerant on Dragoth from http://taleofpainters.blogspot.co.uk/2016/07/showcase-stormcast-eternals-lord_23.html

These guys are creepy! OK so they are humanities, and all that in good in the world’s last chance, but when you read of a crazy magic user sucking the souls out of warriors to infuse bronzed effigies and bring them to life, I find it very creepy!  .. even if they are the good guys! So in games terms you are in charge with units of these humanoid living metal warriors. They tend to be above average abilities with better weapons, however you will find that you have less models on the table that other armies. This means that you will be siding quality over quantity.

AoS Stormcast Eternal Lord-Celestant on Dragoth Tactics

Age of Sigmar Stormcast Eternal Lord-Celerant on Dragoth from http://taleofpainters.blogspot.co.uk/2016/07/showcase-stormcast-eternals-lord_23.html

The Lord-Celestant is a  major character in the Storm cast Eternal army. The Lord-Celestant is strong, highly skilled and well armed. With this model he rides a Dragoth. This gives him extra speed and more attacks. The Lord-Celestant on Dragoth is one of the models that are included in the Age of Sigma starter box so you can be sure that you will see a number of these models in Age of Sigma battles. This means that even if you do not play Stormcast Eternals you will need to know it’s strengths and weaknesses. So with that let’s look at… Lord-Celestant General Tactics The Lord-Celestant does not have any shooting weapons so he is best getting stuck in the fight. However without support your Lord-Celestant will be easy pray for any sizeable mob of enemy. This means that you will need to use him in coordination with other units. This is specially true if your Lord-Celestant is your general. This is because your Generals Abilities have a range limit and if he is out on his own then he will be less effective. Also be aware that the Lord-Celestant’s weapon has a big effect on the best way to use…
