    I have played just a few fyreslayer games with the old points so far but man those vulkites with shields can stick around. I have a 25 man unit with shields and I keep the Battlesmith nearby. In my first fame they held against 10 brutes and 6 gore gruntas. They ended up killing most of them but it took the ironjawz 4 rounds to kill 6 models. In the second game it was against a megaboss and 9 brutes and it still took 2 rounds to kill 6 dwarves. The Runemaster with the volcanos call is good for making your opponent avoid large central prices of terrain. I can’t wait to get the next 60 vulkites I need though. And with the getting started box ill probably end up with 6 more magmadroths too!

    Can’t wait for GHB2017 to hit, really looking forward to the point changes. I think those + Allegiance Abilities will really shake up what armies you see on the tables, pushing people to try out older armies as well as the shiny new ones.
