It's the oddity of the system that (on 5 attacks) assuming no exploding hits he can drop 5 guardsmen or a knight...

It's one thing in AoS that I like is whereby damage spills over.

That said, the article amused me it was fun. All it needed to be. I shared it on Facebook and Crikey, people went nuts...

He would be absolutely feared if his damage spilled over.  It's a shame he wasn't the exception to the rule.

If I can punch really, really super hard, I might be able to damage a Knight, but no matter how hard I punch you it won't make that guy standing next to you get punched.

Oh I don't know, ghaz is that big he could swing a punch through a bunch of dudes - Sauron and lord of the rings springs to mind?

Regardless, I love the model and rules. Can't wait to paint him

Just can't decide on army colours or classic Goff. Don't know if I can bring myself to paint him army colours...

I don't like damage spilling over. Ghaz should have a "sweep" attack, like S:User AP:-2 D:1, but makes 3 hit rolls with for every attack.

By the way, look what I have:

As Toaae says, that's what "sweep" profiles are for. A hit roll should mean that that particular attack hit. Otherwise, you end up with weirdness like why only the first guys armour matters, and the "overspill" guy is just assumed to have his armour fail too, and why does a sweep from Ghaz always kill the same number of guardsmen.

 

EDIT: Regarding colour, I think I'll have him in Goff colours if I ever do get him, I'll just make sure to have some totally-not-stolen-Goff gear on some of my Deathskulls, or just in a Goff detachment.

Despite all my stuff being Red or Orange, I plan to paint him up in proppa' Goff colors. I plan to later get another one, and convert up Tortoof 2.0, who will be red.

Got my box today aswell. Ghaz is a thick boy!

The base is really lovely, like a mini diorama in itself.

 

Oh, and Ragnar is cool too...

Please do a good size comparison shot of ghaz.

There's been no good ones.

My box looks like it's being picked up today for delivery *fingers crossed*

Really wasn't expecting a GW Ghaz to be on the same scale as Artel W's Ironboss, but here we are.

would have liked to see Nu Ghaz next to Old Ghaz. Or a GW war boss. Not heard of this iron boss mini before no idea how large it is. 
Wish GW would have lined them up for us.

I’ve seen a few pictures floating around, and new Ghaz looks to be a little under twice the height of the old one.

Twenty years of swole.

Wow...

Just read the fluff from saga of the beast. For a saga about the Beast I've no idea where ghaz is or what he's up to. It's generic, doesn't advance the story bar the fact there's a great waaagh.

I didn't expect resolution but I kinda expected some discussion of ghaz bar his datasheet entry. Very disappointed I'm afraid. The rules section I love but the fluff was more of a let down that the thrones final season :(

Noone can spoil anything because nothing happens!!!

That's basically been how all the Psychic Awakening books have been, just a rough overview of "these are what these factions are getting up to now", and in the case of the Blood of the Phoenix the fluff of the battle between Jain Zar and Drazhar wasn't in the main book, but the fluff book included in the box set. The same thing has probably happened has probably happened here. Saga of the Beast has fluff on the general status of Orks and Space Wolves in the galaxy, and Prophecy of the Wolf contains the details of the fight between Ragnar/Ghazgkull.

The more I look at Nu-Ghaz the less I like that model. huh.png 


GW should have lead with that Audio Drama instead of just saying Ghaz and Ragnar just killed each other and came back. 
The plot is actually interesting and maybe even good "world building".  Sound like we lave a lot to look forward to over the coming years.
