Another progress update as it has been far too long between posts - the spine of my Sisters of Sigmar warband taking shape:
Listening to previous advice I got myself a dremel and that has been an absolute godsend! To the extent that I now that I even use it to clean mould lines! One can never go back to a manual filing haha.
Here's the starting roster that I'm thinking of going with:
We play with some basic houserules - shields +2 save in CC, dual wielding -1 to hit and off hand cannot crit, Slings increased to 5gc, range reduced to 16 inches and -1 to hit when firing twice. Steel whips are just pure awesomeness - 2 attacks in the first round of combat and always strikes first! Might even be too cheap at 10gc...
Basic grunt will have 2 attacks with a 5+ save in the first round of combat!
Overall strategy is to slowly advance and sling... let the enemy get in their charge on their turn, get to hit first with a single attack and than stomp all over them during my turn.
Whilst I do like the +1 strength of the Sigmarite Warhammer, just think the +1 attack with asf on the steel whips is just a better option - especially when combined with a shield!
Hopefully will get the warband finished in the coming weeks and it'll see some action.
