With the box hitting shelves very soon and hopefully the new battletomes close behind, it’s time for some rules. So even though not a ton of rules were revealed today, keep an eye out for more on the way soon!
Warhammer Community revealed the new rules but we’ll also be taking a look at the rules they posted for Idoneth. Let’s get into it!
These could be a little disappointing to some, but as we said, don’t get too worried yet. None of this may make sense until we get the full picture of everything that may be getting updated with each faction for AoS 3.0
Let’s first look at the value for the Fury of the Deep Box, then get into the rules!
Fury of the Deep Box: What’s the Value?
Yet another ancient animosity reaches boiling point as bald heads meet long beards in Fury of the Deep, the next battlebox to rock the Mortal Realms.
The Auric Flamekeeper is joined by five Auric Hearthguard and five Hearthguard Berzerkers – 10 models in total who can be built either way – as well as 10 Vulkite Berzerkers. Against them is an Idoneth raiding party consisting of 10 Namarti Thralls, 10 Namarti Reavers, and a blood-thirsty Akhelian Allopex.
With 43 minis (and 2 new ones) there is a decent amount of miniatures inside the box! They say it will be released in “early 2022”, and now we know it will hit store shelves on January 22nd, 2022. Let’s get into the value!
Fury of the Deep Box Set Pricing Breakdown:
- 10x Auric Hearthguard/Auric Berzerkers $90 ($45 for a box of 5)
- Auric Flamekeeper $35 (based on most recent characters)
- Vulkite Berzerkers $60 (existing kit)
Total Fyreslayers MSRP: $185
- Akhelian Thrallmaster $35 (based on most recent characters)
- Akhelian Allopex $45
- 10 Namarti Thralls $50
- 10 Namarti Reavers $50
Total Idoneth Deepkin MSRP: $180
Total Retail Value of Fury of the Deep: $365
Value in the box: $195
So, if you break it down with a friend, you’ll be paying right around $85 a person and getting about $100 extra in value each. We are also not including the booklet inside because that should just be an added value bonus for players. So, honestly, there is solid value inside (basically the same as Shadow and Pain) and much more than the recent Shadow Throne box for 40k.
New Fyreslayers AoS Rules For the Auric Flamemaster
Grimnir’s Grit blesses your forces with a ward – perfect for keeping near-naked duardin alive long enough to slay some aelves. If you’ve accepted the inevitability of death, Grimnir’s Wrath will instead guarantee they can furiously hit back before they die in combat.
On the smiting hand, Grimnir’s Resolve lets you throw units into melee in the combat phase – neatly avoiding the Unleash Hell command ability – and Grimnir’s Vengeance improves the Damage characteristic of your weapons, to help your little lads carve through their fishy foes.
A 6+ ward save isn’t the craziest thing ever but it can save you. The other three are all offensive and quite strong whether you want to get off a sneaky charge or just add more damage. However, no matter which one you’re going for, this will be hard to pull off. Each time you use it 6 more models have to die within 12″ of this model. So not impossible, just not the most reliable.
All the New Fyreslayers Points Changes & Rules
The biggest NERFs here are for Berzerkers as they are going up ten points for five models. Then Vulkites with shields have also gone up 10 points as well. The only deduction is the Auric Hearthguard going down by 5 points. Not that big of a deal overall honestly.
The Idoneth Deepkin also suffered a few points increases as well on their units which isn’t that much in the way of NERFs really…
Fyreslayers Warscrolls & Rules Changes
Now they have +1 bravery, and a rend added to their weapons, however, the bodyguard rule is taken out. We hope this is because their heroes will all grab a 4+ Ward save. Then on top of that, Molten Rockbolts kind of got a big hit. Now it just reduces the enemy’s move on 6’s. Before it did all kinds of stuff like extra damage, the movement went to half, and even more. So this looks to be a huge change at face value.
Let’s just hope the new Fyreslayers overall rules and Warscrolls in thier battletome book help them out!
