Welcome to Librarium Online!
I just had my second battle with eighth edition, and I thought I would share some of my thoughts. I played a 2000 point battle against a lizardmen army featuring, you guessed it, a Slann! Woohoo. I'm excited already.
- Cupped hands is really annoying. I mean seriously. Screw that.
- The same goes for lore of life. Especially once Throne of Vines is in play, those spells become seriously nasty.
- Khorne warriors with halberds might be the best thing I've ever seen. One unit of twelve along with a BSB destroyed a massive unit of saurus warriors and six kroxigors.
- I tried a hellcannon for the first time, and it was sort of underwhelming. However, I think that it might do better against an army that can fail leadership tests.
There's a whole thread with battle experiences.
It's a sticky.
