this will be a recurring thing from me, but I enjoy playing AoS as a fun game. Something I heard on the jun 2018 heelanhammer podcast really sticks in my craw. The winner of the scgt boasts about his winning ways etc then admits later that a very well known player on the tournament scene said to him “you used to be fun to play”. (Paraphrase) Admittedly he does go on to say he should probably go on to try playing more for fun. where do people stand on this? I’m an open war cards, mostly matched armies type of guy. I like the matched play stuff don’t get me wrong. If I win I win. If I don’t, oh well c’est la guerre! My last game a couple of weeks ago pitted 50 saurus warriors (10 & 2 20s) and 2 heroes and a salamander against 60 clan rats (3 units of 20) and 2 heroes and a warp cannon , with a basic objective of killing a messenger in one of the units (basically wipe out the unit with the messenger in it to win is how we set it up) after a couple of years + playing it was honestly one of the best games me and my mate have played. (Had I been on this forum then I’d have done a battle report) The saurus warriors v clan rats was just brilliant. No filth, no cheese. Just rolling dice and laughing. Lots of laughing. If anyone is getting fatigue from trying to build the optimal list, try something like this once in a while. It’s great!
