Playing Soulblight Gravelords in Age of Sigmar 3rd Edition

I’ve spent the last two weekends playing the new (third) edition of Age of Sigmar, first with a 1000-point Gloomspite Gitz list at an event organised by the London Wargaming Guild, and then with a standard 2000-point Soulblight Gravelords list at the London Open.
