One thought on “Episode 191: Nagash Review

  1. 1) I really don’t like the 50% lords allowance. Yeah it’s not overpowered for most armies, who don’t want that much in lords anyways. But for the armies that do it’s ridiculous. You can fit two blender lords and a level 4 master necro into 1,250 points of lords. You can fit a demon prince and a stubborn unkillable Tzeentch lord. You can build two ridiculous party slanns with Tetto. There’s a lot of room for abuse.

    2) TK Arkhan is a death-only caster, so it’s not entirely strange that he doesn’t have Lore of Nehekhara. What’s more strange is that TK Arkhan doesn’t have Lore of Undeath, which really conflicts with the fluff. He’s supposedly this amazing necromancer but the only way he can raise models is by stabbing them with his sword.

    3) Morghasts can specifically be taken by VC units (in the italics text on page 44). I am…really not sure how I feel about them. I don’t like the special one very much, but S6 KB is pretty good. If they had fly I’d take them no question, but without…meh.

    4) Oh, and absolutely disagree on not taking ranks! They’re monstrous infantry with 3A, so literally the only reason not to put them them at least 2 deep is a single S5 stomp and extra attacks from Lore of Light / Lore of Nehekhara. I think running units of 4 in a 2×2 or 3×2 brick is probably the way to go. That or a single 1×2 congaline, run between your other blocks (since all the Undead buff lores have really small ranges as is).
