    Hey Lustria,

    I been off the hobby for a few months, and just slowly creeping back into it "as we all do", but am over whelmed by the new GHB! don't get me wrong, it looks amazing, but unfortunately i havent had time to go over it completely and/or thoroughly as i would like.... but none the less here is a few things i have come up with, again i'm am very unfamiliar with the new rules

    I was looking into Summoning, as that was my primary interest when i first got into the hobby, and now with these new mechanics, it's made things very exciting!
    So, i was looking into what would be the most valuable summoning unit that i could build my army around?? i first thought the bastiladon, as you get a great trade between Celestial Conjuration points and army points, 24cc for 280pts "seems good"
    but then i thought, lets go really crazy with summoning, and summon an EotG to then summon more units! only 18cc for 220pts + more (20x skinks 120pts, 10x warriors 100pts, 3x riders 140pts), at this point, it seems like EotG is a no brainer... and if you can summon an EotG every turn (which isnt hard to do) and have a slann or kroak to help! not only would the value conversion be great, but you will be adding 30 more wounds to your army every turn (if you summoned skinks) plus capturing objectives would be easy!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have attached a list i'm going to work on, it is in the early days of development, but let me know what you think :) for now it's 1500pts... interested on what you guys would do

    Kroak - if he can now use CELESTIAL DELIVERANCE 3x, i figure it is another no brainer to have him in a list, just for the shear mortal wound output, plus sniping enemy heros

    Astro Bearer - to increase range of kroak, and more CC

    Slann Starmaster - use him to buff and summoning! summon EotG, then get EotG to summon more untis (EVERY TURN from turn 2)

    Shadowstrike Starhost - to distract the enemy while you set up endless spells/kroak, and snipe big threats (hero/wizard/monsters/hordes)

    Prismatic Palisade - block LoS to protect your heros

    Balewind Vortex 2x - put both frogs on them, get more CCs and increase range of kroak

    With a slann as general you generate

    9+1+D3 (with an Astrolith bearer) so a Maximum of 14 CP which is not enough to generate one Engine per turn

    With the BWV extra spell you will get 14 (max) in the First round and 17(max) im the upcoming rounds wich is still not an guaranteed Engine

    Also the Engine cant auto summon u new Unit, somewhere in the Forum is a thread about the Statistic of the Engine i Think it was something about 30% with CoF

    The list is really strong as it combines Kroak and a Shadowstrike Starhost but it's not a summon spam list ;)

    Uhh... somewhere in the Endless Spells rules in the GHB and/or the Malign Sorcery book. I will double check at home.

    All I can find is this Pg 53 Malign Sorcery bottom left, this points to you can have 2 BWV if you have the models for it.

    Can you check the matched play section of the GHB? I thought it was in there...
