    In the grand alliance errata.
    "Pages 46-83 – Seraphon These warscrolls and warscroll battalions are no longer used. They have been replaced with the warscrolls in Battletome: Seraphon."

    So... we have points costs for 2 battalions in the GHB, but they're no longer valid to use. Instead of fixing the wording of Bloodclaw they just removed both battalions.

    RIP Bloodclaw and Heavenswatch.

    If we had a new Battletome on the way however, that change might make more sense. One can hope at least.

    So, the Astrolith bearer has been buffed AND nerfed at the same time. It's still a highly valuable unit.

    The only vaguefully useful loophole for chama skinks has been removed... poor neglected guys, they will be summoned even more rarely now.

    They finally gave the dreadsaurian an official base size, right after I buy the biggest base they offer for mine and now isn't big enough.

    Yeah, check out how big the official one is!!! Crazy....

    280 x 210 mm in comparison to a skink, carno, and the whole thunderquake starhost! lol

    This is going to be difficult to field!

    Slightly obscure change but it did make me think of using a Skink hero with a Slann

    Q: Some spells require you to pick a point on the battlefield
    within a certain distance of the caster, and then draw a line
    from that point back to the caster. Can this point be measured
    from an Umbral Spellportal, and if it can, is the line drawn
    back to the caster?
    A: Yes to both questions.

    Two of the realms have spells that work that way and a well placed Skink Hero we could put that line through a large part of an opposing army and hand out lots of mortal wounds. Something to bear in mind.

    Very situational indeed, but interesting nonetheless!

    Funny you should mention that. A rumour surfaced this morning right along those lines:

    https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/217-the-rumour-thread/?page=734&tab=comments#comment-283017

    Emphasis mine. Apparently this guy is pretty reliable so fingers crossed!

    Wait the base size for Dread is 210x280mm? Can that still fit in 9 inches? If not how can you summon one because a summoned model must be wholly within 9 inches of your Slann.

    I will fit, you can summon it in front of and centered base to base length ways.

    so in inches that is an 8.25x11.... its a freaking piece of printer paper with the corners trimmed... that's gonna be a freaking close fit for summoning.... thankfully it costs 40 points and you prolly shouldn't be summoning it lol

    Quick pythag tells us the edges farthest point of the sideways measure will be 175mm and the farthest forward will be the short radi of 210, so you are looking at it going from 6.8 inches at the farthest left and right and 8.25 inches straight out.... it fits but DAMN... that's nuts

    Lol yeah if anything is by your Slann you can’t summon it. That’s so stupid lol they should up the summon range to wholly within 12 or something. Also where do you get a base this size? I’m getting a dread for Christmas and I need the base. I’m so excited lol.

    From the newest set of FAQs. Look at the FAQ for the Base sizes.
