Ok, so I've been looking over the factions, doing some readings, and I've got to ask.

Do any of the armies do anything but meet in the middle and bash each other in?

I've got very little knowledge of the mechanics of this game, but as far as I can tell, everything seems to have roughly the same mechanic: various buffs for their own combat stats and then stuff to make the opponent worse at combat, with magic mostly being a source of mortal wounds(which I assume just can't be saved?).

All of the big factions seem to have this incredibly out there look to them design wise, so seeing that their rules don't seem to be that crazy is kind of disappointing.

Can I just not tell because I know so little?
>>
>>65155156
>French themed since they’re supposed to be made up of cowards
I'd advise against that. It makes you look stupid.

There are loads of companies that do separate heads for different miniature ranges and periods. If in doubt ask google.

>>
>>65156258
The factor you're missing is objectives, if there were none most armies would be just walk to the middle and attack, but since positioning and holding objectives is how you win the game not many armies would do that. Every army needs to be able to brawl at least a little bit, to keep enemies from pushing them off objectives.

But what kind of rules were you expecting? There are special movement rules out the ass, summoning, magic represented by models that fly around decapitating people, attacks that one shot dragons in the perfect storm. I'm not entirely sure what other "out there" stuff they could add.
>>
>>65156522
2 spellcasts base, 3 on the turalyon. Maybe a casting bonus.

For being the creme of the crop wizards for stormcast they sure do suck at it
>>
>>65156406
Skellies have been around a long time. If soulblight are OG so is Deathrattle,no?
>>
>>65156590
No, because skellies have never been their own army. They've only ever been part of Vampire Counts (Soulblight) or Tomb Kings (squatted).
>>
>>65156579
LA on Tauralon has 1 unbind, only Aventis has 2 casts and 2 unbinds. None possess any bonuses.
A little silly indeed. You'd think at the minimum the biggest out of the lads would cast something fierce
>>
>>65156618
Yeah, I mean realistically against anything that can actually cast (tzeentch, nagash, skrakgrot, etc) you will never get a spell off, without a good bonus you won't be able to get past their stacking unbind bonuses and average of 2 to 3 unbinds per caster

is it better to make army out of only one faction (for example only Nighthaunt) or to combine Death units?
>>
>>65157088
Sweet conversion
Hopefully it'll get some changes this year
>>
>>65156569
Mostly more tactical depth, I guess, more tools and elements to control and shape the field. But I'm looking at Beasts of Chaos now, and their ability to ambush is kind of what I was looking for, so I might try them out.
>>
>>65157122
Usually best to use just your faction, with some allies at most, since specific factions have better magic items, special rules, and spells. A Death army would need to use the generic Death General Traits and Magic Items found in the General's Handbook, while a Nighthaunt Army would get to use the Nighthaunt General Traits and Magic Items, as well as all of the special rules that apply specifically to Nighthaunt armies.
>>
>>65155220
That's a pretty dang good conversion. >>65155283
And so is this one.
>>
>>65157122
Soup gives you more variety in units, subfactions have more focus and support.
>>
>>65157148
Sylvaneth have a wizard that can move forests around and troops that can hop into one forest and pop out of another, as well as unique army terrain that can damage enemies around it.

If you're looking for more abilities like ambush then SCE can deepstrike (teleport) a certain amount of their army onto the battlefield mid-game instead of setting them all up at the start. Daughters of Khaine have a Coven that lets you teleport units around the battlefield (but DoK is one of the factions that otherwise just rushes to the middle and hits enemies until they stop moving). Slaanesh is just fast as fuck all the time. Skaven can pop out of gnawholes and have rat-ogre-cyborgs drill up out of the ground to shoot and punch shit. FEC can summon units off the board edge (units you don't even have to pay points for when you build your army, they're literally just extra free units).

If you haven't already look into Endless Spells, they kind of sound to me like what you're looking for. They're very good at area denial and "shaping" the battlefield.

I'll have to take a look at them, but at a glance I ended up trying this out:


Allegiance: Beasts of Chaos

Great Bray Shaman (100)
- General
- Trait: Nomadic Leader
- Artefact: Desolate Shard
Beastlord (90)

Battleline
20 x Bestigors (240)
30 x Gors (210)
- Gor-Blades & Beastshields
20 x Bestigors (240)
10 x Ungors (60)
- Shortspears & Half-Shields

Units
10 x Chaos Warhounds (80)
20 x Ungor Raiders (160)
20 x Ungor Raiders (160)
10 x Chaos Warhounds (80)

Behemoths
Cygor (180)
Cygor (180)
Jabberslythe (160)

Endless Spells
Doomblast Dirgehorn (60)

Total: 2000 / 2000
Extra Command Points: 0
Allies: 0 / 400
Wounds: 188

How well/poorly did I do? I stayed away from allies, even though I'm curious if I can do some interesting things with them.

>>
>>65156924

>>65157419
they aren't exactly a 'substitute' in that role but would be fine. If you want a GUO at some point plaguebearers are still better, and the heroes can be nice.

>>
>>65157446
Yeah even with a good scheme they'll all end up looking too similar
>>
>>65157474
for BoC it's about buffing them up and sticking characters in there, but since Maggotkin are slow you usually keep your characters in more offensive units like blightkings or pusgoyles. They could work with a GUC but won't be as ideal as plaguebearers and again are that bit faster, but you could run them as counts-as.
>>
>>65157474
>What role should one use gors for?

Since Nurgle is so slow you can always use them to outflank/get objectives faster than other units on a Nurgle army, plus I think Pestigors look rad as hell

New card mechanic, Poison reaction, works as a negative upgrade you attach to your opponent's model on a crit. Melusai has upgrade that lets her do it on a hit.

Juggling the beastmaster around the playing field and choosing which lions to buff is key to the strategy. if she's ever killed, all lions become enraged until the end of the game, so it's a big gamble for the opponent.

The lions aren't all the same. Two are your standard war lions: very strong attacks, but a but squishy. One is a lion in heavy barding that can withstand a lot of punishment and is meant to protect the beastmaster. The fourth one is a lioness, she can pounce long distances and compensate for the lack of ranged attacks.

Tzeenchian Warriors driven mad by their many mutations who they struggle to control.
>playstyle
RNG would be the name of the game, with each Warrior given a separate table to roll for 'mutation effects' for that turn, similar to how Forsaken worked in Fantasy. Maybe have them get stacking mutation effects based on how many foes the individual model manages to kill.
Might be fun to throw in a small chance that any Warrior might devolve into a Spawn which will go after and attack the closest model, irrelevant to whose it is.

The old models weren't horrible. I don't get why people say that. Granted, they perhaps wasn't the absolute top tier models ever made (that honour goes to PBK) but they are, at the very least, just fine.
That being said, I sure wouldn't mind a new and more energetic version of forsaken. My main gripe with the old ones are that they look way too orderly for a mob of gibbering lunatics.

I don't see it. To me they just look like a bunch of heavily mutated Chaos Warriors.
What parts are 'CSM bitsbox' about them?
>>
>>65158902
Pure aggression, rushing frenetically forward ina tangle of limbs, tentacles, claws and whatnot. Slavering maws, bulging eyes and such, but no visible human faces. Horns, additional limbs and mutations bursting past heavy chaos plate interwoven with scaled skin and fur.
No more than one limb on the ground as a rule. Some with the movement of apes, some more like raptors or wolves.
No clear dedication to any god.

As an example, something like the Skullreapers but with more mutations would make for great forsaken. In fact, with just a few conversions I'd reckon you could make some pretty dang cool forsaken with that box.

Haven't build any CSM in, like, a decade or two, but they used to have a whole bunch tentacles and shit.
As for why they why wouldn't be the same, I'd say that with warriors it should more natural and less randomly bolted on.

Karl, Settra, Vlad, Isabelle, and Felix are all gone. Thanquol is the Horned Rat's special boy and Gotrek just got an audiobook where he's voices by Brian Blessed.
>>
>>65159237
I mean, look at the guys above. Each of them is strictly limited in terms of mutation location. Head, arms and maybe a foot or something. And each time the mutations themselves look boring. I realize this is down to the rank&file base they were made for, but I'd want more outrageous stuff. Belly maws, quadrupedal legs, another dude growing from the back, maybe a goat head instead of a hand. Or somebody with a huge, bulky torso and two distinct heads.
But it's clear we disagree on this whole thing, so let's just leave it at that.
>>
>>65159272
KF is deader than dead.
Settra is mentioned in Hamilcar: Champion of the Gods in a small way.
Vlad and Isabella are also dead, though given how Nagash works that might not stick.
Thanquol is one of the greatest Grey Seers now, but still oscilates between powerful threat and staggering incompetence.
Gotrek is around and looking for Felix, who may or may not be stormcast.
As for Mannfred, Nagash apparently likes to keep him around to torment him.

true-ish , Stormcast with storm-sight can see his main body/influence as a burning sun , and he can remotly posses his follower.
Sigmar can affect directly the phisical realm (he hold the ceiling of it reforging chamber during soul-war).
But sigmar never mulltiply into several smaller sigmars to execute a more complicated action (Nagash did that once).
So there is no evidence against im having a main body , but the phisical nature of it is debateable.

They're called forsaken because they are former champions of chaos who have succumbed to their mutations which means that there is no longer any hope of them being uplifted to daemonhood by their patron deity. As the ex-champion has failed in his path to greatness by not being able to bear his divine gifts, his deity has forsaken him.

yeah officially and as the books/lore go there is much more diversity than the Old World, but lorewise is simply because chaos fucked up the realms for so long that (most)order races have better things to do than being racist and fight within themselves, is much more like end times, when nearly every race tried to band together to avoid the destruction of their world

Chaos Warriors are a very versatile unit, they're a simple battleline unit but can be used in a lot of different armies actually. You can include them in any chaos army pretty much. Take your pick of Nurgle, Tzeentch, Slaanesh, Khorne or Slaves to Darkness and buy their start collecting box. Usually a good start

You guys know that they're all mutated to be that way, right? The battletome says that they're just average mortals but when they're needed for war they all get these special masks that mutate their bodies to peak strength and stamina.

Don't pick the Slaves to Darkness allegiance. It's boring and not particularly effective. At as others have said they can slot nicely in any god specific army as a battleline choice. They don't hit very hard but they are quite tough so a unit of 20 is quite capable of denying objectives or holding off a choppy unit for some time. But that is a 360 point investment so YMMV.

We have two rat players at my store. One is just a kid so I can't really make fun of him, but the other is in his late teens/early 20s. Nearly his entire army is bought from ebay, half of it on squares and half of it pre-painted. Since he bought from random people all the paint and basing schemes are all different and conflicting. He gets a lot of rules wrong in his favor and is really overconfident in how strong is army is. He also doesn't take battleline and does allegiance abilities wrong. I actually haven't played him since the battletome came out and I'm glad for it, I don't want to deal with that powercreep.

I like the bloodsecrator change because it means I no longer have to deal with turn 1 charges where I have shit for attacks and battleshock. He's still auto-include though. Guess we'll have to see the hosts and battalions

thank you very much for your imput, i didnt posted the image of the models but i guess you knew what i was talking about

say i want to align them to slanesh, the next step would be to buy a start colecting box of slaves to darkness and paint them purple? or outright buy the plastic deamonetts?

:=1 to you, anon. Did I miss a PTG general?
>>
So I've played with the idea of busting out my age old Chaos Dwarfs and playing them in AoS. Little confused after looking into some battle reports. Isn't double turn just kind of automatically winning?

Little concerned that while there are some really nice models, the new armies as whole really are just big meh; Fireslayers look like same dwarf times 50, the sea elfs are cool since miniatures but look just silly as an army and I'm afraid I would burst out laughing at people that would play the steampunk balloons against me.

Am I just cherry picking worst parts here or is it just not for me? Community seems nice, feels bad man.
>>
>>65162201
>>65162243
Oh, did I post this right after another skirmish level game was announced for AoS? It seems like I did. My question stands though.
>>
>>65162285
No, it's not just automatically winning. You have to learn to be prepared for it.

Those models aren't bad, you just don't like them. And yes, you're just focusing on what you don't like.
>>
>>65162285
>Isn't double turn just kind of automatically winning?
some people would say that since this isn't as shooting heavy as 40k and more focused on good charging, factoring the risk of taking a double turn in your movements is part of the strategic gameplay

Because Slaanesh is not a fully supported faction at this point it's difficult to give strong advice about it. However it's fully possible for you to build a Slaanesh army mixing mortals and daemons or being exclusively one or the other, this is ultimately a matter of preference.

What you should do regarding building an army is to determine a 1000 point army you would like to play and make steps towards having what you need to field that army.

No, but it can be very important.

It’s not very balanced and you’re a little late to the party. Support has largely ended for PTG. Home brew systems will likely serve you better.
>>
>>65162358
How do Dwarfs and slow armies as such do? Looking at the forge world stuff (CD use that right?) there's still some nice looking artillery. I assume I would need to force bad charges from them as per usual. Is magic more like psykers in 40k or still devastating?
>>
>>65162285
Well, I think Chaos Dwarves, especially the old models look like shit, and I would be embarrassed to put them down on the table. But people like them, so it's fine.

You have to learn that you might not have the same likes as somebody else.
>>
>>65162285
No one has ever played chaos dwarfs anon. The one army book they had was a WD compilation.
>>
>>65162466
I appreciate the advice, but I also like dead systems. I'm still interested in grabbing whichever books are relevant.
>>
>>65162424
Hey that's fine, they're very goofy compared to quality these days. I suppose that does make a good point tho, better take a look at my own army if I feel theirs looks clowny.
>>
>>65162512
AOS is very objective focused, slow armies can sometimes struggle to claim late game points.

Magic, especially certain endless spells, can be invaluable.

>>65162607
It does, he's wrong.
>>
>>65162592
OK, and as far as core rules, is the 2017 Path To Glory book the right book?
>>
>>65160101
Where does this happen?? I expect the StD battletome to go into detail with Archaon and the Varanguard to because fuck the Everchosen battletome is a complete disgrace.
>>
>>65162565
That's why they need powerful artillery to compensate but GW keeps being retarded and keeps them separate.
>>
>>65162374
forgive me im really a brainlet, i dont understan where or how to chose an army, i downloaded the chaos battletome everchosen but cant get how you would chose an army or a host
>>
>>65161919
Not really true. Darkling Covens are creepy to everyone, wanderers don't really live in the cities and they don't mingle with other races, the elven factions that worship god beasts keep to themselves in their monasteries fucking their beasts, humans are on their own and dwarves on their mines but they do trade and their engineers tend to work together. Order societies are segregated as fuck, they just tolerate eachother because chaos, death and destruction could fuck them all if they didn't.
>>
>>65162703
>chaos battletome everchosen
Don't that's completely usless and a waste of paper and words. Read the Core Book, that's the actual manual where they explain the rules, how allegiances work and what armies there are.
>>
>>65162703
You choose one by finding one you want to play. It isn't hard. Look at the models, read some lore, look at the rules and playstyles and play the one that appeals the most to you on all of those fronts.
>>
Any ideas for bits to use to make winged Duradin helmets?
>>
>>65162940
I don't know about any bits, but the champion of the unit comes wuth a winged helmet, so if you really want them and can't find any alternative, you could always clone it with oyumaru and milliput.

is archaon bigger than abbadon?
who's more important in the eyes of the gods?
>>
>>65163006
Gee, I dunno. One is basically chaos god himself, other is eternal loser with a daddy complex.
>>
>>65163006
They begged Archaon to come deal with Sigmar. Have they ever begged Abaddon for anything?
>>
>>65163006
Archaon probably. His first big victory was the Old World which is nothing by 40k standards but he wants to starve the chaos gods and they hate that.
>>
>>65163052
ok, but which is which
>>
>>65162419
I like this new edit
>>
>>65163006
Abaddon is a retard that always gets btfo in the end
Archaon is a big dick chad that is the mary sue OC of all the chaos gods and actually gets shit done, wins almost every battle he’s in
>>
>>65162558
Honestly, what I try to do any time someone plays balloon or firebabies against me is just find something not about the sculpts to compliment. The painting, any conversions, the list composition, or shit just something about the lore, especially if they chose a canon theme. Takes my mind off criticizing how ugly the sculpts can be and is a good way to make the game more friendly.
>>
>>65163139
Archaon is just a more successful version of Abaddon with a shorter yet more interesting back story.

Success being relative to their respective "universe"s
>>
>>65163115
Undivided chaos followers worship Archaon as his god.
>>
>>65163006
>is archaon bigger than abbadon?
Abaddon is a bit taller than a primaris, which are the same size as a stormcast. Both the varanguard and archaon are a tad bigger than them, so I'd say they are both the same size. Archaon wins though, his top knot is better, has horns and he is mounted on a giant three headed chimera.
>>
>>65161094
read the rules and faq.
bases are fine
>>
>>65163006
These look disturbingly like Stormcasts.
>>
>>65163260
Can I put my chaos warriors on 50mm round bases? They look much better on rounds than on ovals.
>>
>>65163006
Model wise, how do they compare?
>>
>>65163279
Bases GW says to use for Chaos Warriors are 32mm, why are you putting them on ovals?
>>
>>65163276
I'm gonna fucking eat your offspring.
>>
>>65163316
Fuck, I meant knights. I've seen them on rounds, like they use in the lord of the rings game and they look much better.
>>
>>65163279
you put them on any base as long as you play them as they are on the base in the base chart.
It says in the official rules.
>>
>>65163329
You CAN put them on 50mm rounds, but you should treat them as if they were on ovals and you won't be able to use them in tournies.
>>

>God telling everyone to shut up and work together if they want to stay in Heaven and be safe from the MegaSatans.
Pretty much the same thing happened there buddyroo. To the christians it wasn't just a case of staying the tide of foreign invaders but that of god's triumph over the devil and his minions.
>Same as that fucking situation
When did I ever claim that it was the same situation?

Everchosen is an outdated, irrelevant book that has essentially no bearing on the game at present.

When people refer to factions what they mean is "Allegiances" an Allegiance is a keyword which all of the miniatures in your army share and which has Allegiance Abilities associated with it (as defined by the either the Core Rules, General's Handbook or a Battletome), for example all of the models in a Slaves to Darkness army will have Slaves to Darkness and Chaos keywords, both of those keywords have Allegiance Abilities, so you could choose for that army to use either Chaos or Slaves to Darkness as its Allegiance. Because Slaves to Darkness units can also choose to add one of the chaos gods as a keyword, if you chose to give them the Slaanesh keyword you could also choose to use the Slaanesh Allegiance instead of Chaos or Slaves to Darkness.


Page 242 of the Core Rules describes Allegiance Abilities in general and faction specific battletomes describe their specific Allegiance Abilities, Grand Alliance allegiances (Chaos, Death, Order, Destruction) are found in the Core Rules, Armies which have Allegiance Abilities, but which do not currently have battletomes are found in the General's Handbook.

Your choice of Allegiance is important and it determines a lot about your army.

You may be sitting there scratching your head thinking "But where are the profiles for my units?!". This is because Slaves to Darkness do not have a book of their own, their warscrolls were published in the Grand Alliance: Chaos book, they're also available online for free from GW via the store pages for the units or via the AOS app.

This may all sound like a shitty clusterfuck and it is. This is the result of the game not being designed well and having to have a lot of features bolted on post release.
>>
>>65163360
Are tournaments usually strict about base sizes? I have a Poxbringer on a 40mm instead of a 32mm and my Blood Knights are on 75x42mm instead of 60x35mm.
>>
>>65163513
Yes.
>>
>>65163394
>Affirms that the Rage of Khorne ability still exists
>Confirms that it's now "wholly within" as expected based on general design trends
>Surprise, bloodsecrators can now move
The exact same thing. No part of that article says anything related to immunity to battleshock.
>>
>>65163513
Talk to your TO, you'll probably be okay on the 40mm, but the blood knights might not be cool.
>>
>>65158256
Bravery only starts mattering when you stack debuffs. People think that horde units are weak to Battleshock but in reality its big units that need to worry about it. Losing two Goblins to Battleshock means nothing. Losing two Ogres to Battleshock can lose you the game.
>>
>>65163394
>hey, guess what, we nerfed the Bloodsecrator
>but don't worry we also buffed him so it doesn't actually matter
Can GW suck Khorne's brass balls any harder?
>>
>>65163739
Don't forget that he doesn't do anything except bubble so he can run constantly.
>>
>>65163711
It's also way fucking harder to lose ogres to battleshock though, since you have to lose whole models to get battleshock penalties.
>>
>>65163317
you're going to starve
>>
>>65163317
You gonna suck his Dick?

>>65163804
True. Just saying that every -1 inflicted on them is going to carry far more weight. Between that and the size bonus to Battleshock tests, tough high-wound models are more scared of it.
>>

Retail therapy. I feel pretty guilty since last weekend I bought a ton of Nighthaunt just because it was a good deal. There's a bunch of stuff in there I might not even use (24 Mymourn Banshees and a Coven Throne), but the savings called to me. I'm banning myself from eBay until I'm closer to finishing my backlog.

I need to ban eBay..It's a dangerous site for me.

Going to try and just sit on these FEC and hope that archregents go up in price as all carrion empire boxes get bought up to make my money back on the purchase, and in the meantime just read some lore on all factions and look at maybe the individual heroes that they have and then just go one box at a time.

That's the dream anyway.
