Truly exceptional posting for your painting diary and battle reports. A pleasure to follow - keep it up! :D

Thanks for the reply. I found that doing these reports and painting logs keeps me more motivated.

So far I think 9th is really good game, better than 8th. My Only major complain about the new rules is the way magic is done. I feel it is nerfed down too much and many of the spells are too highly costed compared to their effect vs. risk of miscast. I like to point out that during 8th I seldom used those 6 dice monsters but rather those low cost spells to gain much needed advantage over enemies.

I agree that 9th is better than 8th, and I also agree that the magic phase is an issue. Since the magic phase isn't supposed to be as powerful as 8th, then your criticisms mean it's probably about right interns of power - which is good! 😀

My issue is the miscast is needlessly complicated. I dislike very, very few things about 9th....it's heading in the right direction I feel.

These battle reports help many people, even if they don't post, and are invaluable to many skill levels. Appreciate it!

Thanks @squalie for the reply and kind words, really appreciate them!

Now third game is up and it was a huge lesson in many ways.

But that is one of the biggest advantages of doing these reports that they allow you to really reflect how to do differently next time

It's hard to comment as you seem to play small point values (at least for now) and your list is pretty unorthodox! :D A heavy Lust/Change army is going to require some finesse to play as it lacks the punch of Wrath/Pestilence. Mounted Sirens are hands down my favourite Lust unit. They are amazing for their points.

@squalie, My collection is starting to get painted up. Still have 6 crushers incoming and 5 more mounted sirens, blazing chariot and siren chariot. I have only 6 tally men currently (old metal ones) and old metal unclean one so I am not likely to take pestilence for the time being. I also intend to make conversion Clawed fiends. So my goal is to get around 5k points.

I haven't really look up many tactic / bat reps etc. from 9th, pretty much just go for it and test things out what would suit me best. I also don't intent to enter any tournaments nor competative scene. I consider my self as Hardcore Casual player :D

Just to point out at this moment I am seriously distracted by my Necromunda / Shadow Wars table project with my gaming group.http://imgur.com/a/BJ9yt

I am very tempted. So many exciting GW releases this year. I'm very involved in Blood Bowl and love the new Blades of Khorne book possibilities.

Your games are getting bigger! Keep painting and playing!

The mounted Sirens are one of my fave units. People are always surprised when I flee with them.

@squalie I couldn't agree more. Mounted Sirens! I am thinking about trying little bigger unit with harbringer + dance of death in it :D

I just bought the warhammer nurgle starter so I should start working on more models
