CoS still have access to hard-hitting troops and artillery. About the only thing Stormcast provide are powerful characters and tough multi-wound infantry bricks, and Free Peoples can happily dump down a blob of 40 Freeguild Guard buffed up to a 2+ save anyway. I don't really see why you would want, let alone need, to ally in Stormcast unless you're desperate for a beatstick Hero choice.

Hey Ratbros, local gameshop's doing an AoS tournament in Sept.

>>
>>67809971
>there will likely be warscroll and point adjustments

And? If you're implying GW is going to deliberately nerf CoS to try and promote Stormcast sales, then you're buying into some kind of absurd conspiracy theory. People who don't like Stormcast aren't going to suddenly start buying them to prop up a weak CoS Battletome; they just won't buy into the army at all. Making CoS powerful enough to stand on its own encourages people to start the army, and might lead to double-dipping into Stormcast allies further down the line.

>>67810016
>but the vast majority of SCE heroes is utter tosh

Well, compared to such powerhouses like the Black Ark Fleetmaster I mean. But even then, most Stormcast characters only buff other Stormcast, so you probably wouldn't even bother bringing them in a CoS army.

>>67810075
An Incantor would be worth using just for the stronger Arcane Bolts, the MW bomb and the auto-unbind (especially now that the Spellweaver is gone). Azyros buffs all ORDER units if I recall correctly.
>>
>>67810028
do you think there will be warscroll adjustments? what do you guys think is going to get stronger or weaker?

if the GHB 2019 was any indication, they think free peoples are currently pretty undertuned, but that GHB was very conservative with its points changes for the most part, nothing moving by more than 10 or 20 pts.

personally i'd like to see greatswords get a bit more staying power or damage. it would go a long way to making a melee centric freeguild army viable if they were 2 wounds a peice or their weapons were damage 2 or something. as it is, they are only slightly better than guard in melee, and when you consider how freeguild shooting is, theres little reason to take 30 greatswords over 30 crossbowmen or 30 riflemen other than style points. if its a blocky melee unit you need to hold the line or guard objectives, then freeguild guard do a better job with equal saves but reroll 1s to save and a larger max unit size for fewer pts (40 for 280 as opposed to 30 for 300)
>>
>>67810055
Castellant is good with other stormcast, but does fuck all for CoS, Veritant is a single unbind per turn and the Incantor struggles with the high cast value of his okay-ish spell.
I'll grant you though the Azyros though.

>>67810170
>Incantor struggles with the high cast value of his okay-ish spell.
That's okay though because Prime Electrids make even Arcane Bolt worth casting. We didn't really know how good old Arcane Bolt was until they took it away.

>>
>>67810121
>the stronger Arcane Bolts
The ones he doesn't get, you mean?
And the mortal wounds bomb that make it even easier to shoot his flimsy ass off the table?
And a 140pts for a single guaranteed unbind (which IS great, it must be said) as well as a middling spell is pretty iffy.

Which brings up another question: Why are the Lords-Arcanum such garbage? It feels like they were all designed to be as useless as possible, given their huge price tag.
>>
>>67810240
the point of taking incantors is the scroll though. it allows them to dispell some really clutch shit, namely hand of dust or curse of years type insta kill stuff. a lot of high end stormcast lists are taking 2 or 3 incantors because thats 2 or 3 garaunteed turns of stopping something like hand of dust, all the more important if they are running something big like morathi or a stardrake. you dont want to lose 500+ pts to a single spellcast

>>
>>67810269
A huge chunk of their price is for the ability to take Sequitors as Battleline. Plus I think the on-foot Arcanum's Command Ability that lets you add movement to Endless Spells is way underrated. Some spells become way scarier if their movement gets increased.

>>67810333
It's just proof that the /v/ermin invasion is not just a myth and is an actual thing. If all the /pol/baiting wasn't proof enough yet.
>>
>>67810369
the point is that sometimes that 500 pt unit has the ability to clear out 1k pts of the enemy or more if left unchecked, and taking a few hundred pts of support pieces to keep it from dieing can amplify that further.

i know stardrakes arent the hotness anymore, but when they were, a stardrake buffed by a lord castellant (i think thats the right one, the lantern save bonus guy) with a few other buffs could just tank an entire army while spewing out mortal wounds for every savings throw it made and healing when it rolled high saves. your army would just evaporate around it.

problem was, nagash could come up and cast hand of dust and just remove it instantly. the incantors keep him from being able to do that for several turns, which can be enough to turn the tide of a game

If it had more range or outright let you shuffle around an endless spells out-of-phase I guess it could see some use, but as is it seems like a waste of CP that
If anything, all Lord-Arcanums should be two-cast/two-unbind casters, given their huge costs and lore status.

I see what you mean.

But just to play devils advocate for a second. You say there is no reason. Maybe there is a reason you just dont know about? Maybe its just not cost effective for them to produce the models in question anymore. Maybe they just cant actually make them anymore due to damaged molds or something. Maybe they just didnt sell anymore and they didnt expect them to keep selling? GW is just a profit based company that happens to produce a game we play. If something isnt profitable anymore it gets axed, just like with any other company.

Who knows :P The only people that know are the people making the decisions and they aint tellin'

Id like to start a topic on the base motives for the destruction faction.

Ive been reading the books and whatnot and it seems there core values are to simply destroy civilizations and fight. Even the Gloomspite Gitz seem to have really base motivations for fighting. To them they just have to appease the bad moon by being cunning and killing everything and if they do it right then the moon is going to help them continue to destroy everything.

In fantasy the WAAGH thing was interesting enough to make me want to collect green skins. It was a kind of primal "coming together" sort of deal that gave strength to them all and they used it to gain footholds in the empire and propagate over the old world.

Chaos already has that destroy everything vibe, I don't see why the Destruction faction needs it too. I would appreciate if they added some depth as to exactly why they want to destroy civilizations instead of "just because". We have Gorkamorka and the Bad Moon (which I firmly believe is a separate entity at this point), and some other ogre god i can't name at the moment. The gods are not that interesting though and dont do much story wise at the moment. I hope GW gives motivation as to why these factions feel the need to destroy everything that represents civilization besides just being primal forces. They need to flesh out these gods and their motivations because as of right now there isn't much there.

Now I haven't read any of the novels so help me out if theres information im missing. Any recommended reading would be appreciated as well.

the GG tome goes into some of the weirdness/madness the bad moon causes, and the motivations of skragrott particularly. Besides a few cool passages in Fist of Gork, I agree that the bigger greenskins are pretty bland, and they've given pretty much 0 screen time to gorkamorka
>>
>>67811544
>Chaos already has that destroy everything vibe, I don't see why the Destruction faction needs it too.

Chaos ultimately wants to destroy everything, to the point of unbinding reality and reducing the Mortal Realms to nothingness. They hide this under a veneer of reason, justifying their actions as necessary in the face of Sigmar's 'tyranny' or simply seeing no reason to fight the inevitable. Destruction, by contrast, wants to destroy civilisation but leave the Mortal Realms themselves intact; they want to see everything dragged down into an endless, primordial struggle of might-makes-right, and they don't try to hide their motives in any way.

In practical terms it isn't a huge difference, but that's what sets they two apart.
>>
>>67811681
chaos
>>
>>67811544
You're forgetting that Destruction is far more random that it even out Chaos Chaos at times.

Not to mention Gork/Mork/Gorkamorka is a literal divinity dispenser. Hell, at this point, he might as well have created his own pantheon of things that became gods/demi-gods because of him.

Not to mention they live for the fight. They'll build stuff only to knock it all down not for reasons that Chaos has (Self propagation) but rather for fun. Chaos ultimately wants to keep itself alive and corrupt stuff to gain more power.

Destruction is here for a good time and is more then willing to work with others to ensure that.

In RPG terms, Chaos is an asshole player who wants to be edgy, have everything centered on himself, and justify his actions typically in CN-stupid logic or that he HAD to do it for a greater good or reason.

Destruction is a murder hobo who wants to keep killing, get better gear, party, and repeat. He needs no justification other then power and fun, and in some cases, fun for others as well. Like the Fist of Gork said, the Ironjaws are more then happy to work together and smash Chaos, it's just that Sigmar won't lend his forces to come out and play as brothers.

I think the problem here is that their goals are way too similar with the only difference being that chaos wants to unmake everything, destruction simply wants to tear it down for the fight.

With the new Orruk and hopefully a new Ogre tome we can see some destruction characters take centre stage to further differentiate themselves from Chaos.

Personally I would like Destruction to take on a more tribal / protector vibe. They see themselves as creatures of the realms and the more civilized races damage the realms themselves by living and building their cities. Maybe magic actually hurts the stability of the realms and they fight against races that have a lot of magic users? I was also thinking about the realm of heavens and maybe they hate sigmar for taming the realm so to speak and want it returned to a more natural state which would give them the power back that they once had before the age of chaos.

Frankly just fucking anything besides what we have now, im done with the sigmar centric storyline at this point. At least Nagash keeps it interesting.

The problem with that is you start veering into "noble savage" territory, while Orc and Ogre fluff in Warhammer has traditionally cleaved very close to the simple "savage" aspect. It might actually be quite in-keeping with AoS's more high fantasy tones, but it would cause a lot of upset among long-term Destruction (or what eventually became Destruction) players.

Wanderers weren't squatted; they still have nomadic elves with bows, and I don't think the term "Glade Guard" was ever mentioned in-universe. They'd just need to add some throwaway line about how their archers are traditionally women for some cultural reason or another.

The mass-squatting of ex-High Elf units, especially given Swifthawk agents have appeared in the fluff and been mentioned by name, is a lot trickier. I suspect they'll just be thrown down the memory hole; GW will never bring them up again and expect everyone to just forget they were a thing.

Individual factions do have a reason to fight what they do. The Bonesplitterz for example fight primarely great creatures because they believe Gorkamorka's spirit is in these creatures and by beating, eating and making weapons out of them they can absorb some of that power.

I'd wager the main reason is redundancy and killing finecast.

You don't need 4 versions of dude-with-bow. Just cull it down to one type with tge expectation that that's what people will use their old minis as in the future.

They're smarter than Orcs, smart enough to assemble the crude vestiges of technology and civilisation, but too base and cruel to properly form a coherent society. So they end up lashing out at the lands of Men, Elves etc, driven by the idea they can somehow steal what these more successful races have, or at least drag them all down into the same squalor. You could maybe do something with that, I dunno.

It's pretty much what you'd expect, but have some eloquent orruk theology on their reason for fighting:
>‘Is Gorkamorka lost, then?’
>Gordrakk threw back his head and howled with laughter. ‘Gorkamorka isn’t lost. Gorkamorka is everywhere,’ Gordrakk rumbled. ‘He’s in the wind and the rocks and the howling of the beasts. Gorkamorka is in us and beside us and around us.’
>‘So he’s here now? Can he hear us?’ Zephacleas looked around.
>‘Maybe, if he’s listening,’ Gordrakk said, with a shrug. ‘Maybe one of him hears, and not the other. Maybe both. Maybe neither.’ He grinned at Zephacleas. ‘Maybe he doesn’t like what he hears and tells me to bash you in the noggin, hammer-boss.’
>‘The Hammer God misses his friend. He misses his brother. He misses fighting beside Gorkamorka and wishes to do so again, in the coming war,’ Zephacleas said. ‘He wishes that his warriors, and those of his brother, could march side-by-side, as we do now, to fight the Old Enemy.’
>‘Gorkamorka has been fighting them, hammer-boss,’ Gordrakk rumbled. ‘He’s been fighting them forever. But where is the Hammer God? Why has he not been fighting alongside Gorkamorka?’
>‘The Hammer God thought Gorkamorka didn’t want to fight beside him any more,’ Zephacleas said. ‘The Hammer God thought Gorkamorka had become his enemy.’
>Gordrakk laughed. ‘Yeah? So?’ He snorted and tapped the side of his head. ‘Hammer God never understood Gorkamorka, never saw. Gorkamorka wants to fight forever, but the Hammer God doesn’t. Hammer God wants to build walls and towers and castles... But what’s the point of that if you never knock them over?’ He snorted. ‘Even the Chaos-things don’t understand. They think the point is to kill everyone, but then who’d be there to fight? Nobody understands but Ironjawz, because we’re the smartest and the toughest.’

>>67812517

This actually clears things up a lot, thanks for taking the time to copy that all out anon. Gives reasons as to why they fight against order and chaos.

What im getting here is that GorkaMorka is a primal force of nature that represents a sort of Ying yang to chaos? They want things to exist and life to thrive so they can continue living the best way they see fit, which is to fight and conquer. Also im seeing now why they destroy cities, having unchangeable things in the realms must go against the very essence of gorkamokra.

I hope we get some good Gorkamorka lore soon.

Can I get a rundown on mortal khorne heroes besides the priest and the banner?
>>
>>67812516

I thought about the jealousy thing, in fantasy that does seem to be their main motivation in their fight against the dwarves but it doesn't seem to be as big an issue in the recent tome. At this point the tome seemed to strongly hint that the badmoon had some sort of plan totally separate from everything else and i was kinda excited to see what exactly that was in the coming lore bits.
>>
>>67812693
Less living the way they see fit and more by being driven totally by emotion and instinct.

Destruction isn’t a very intelligent or philosophical faction. They eat when they’re hungry, sleep when they’re tired and fight when they’re bored and want to carry on what they enjoy doing forever. They understand on a base level that makes them truely free and reject the laws and restraints of order factions while also rejecting the all consuming threat of chaos.

>>
>>67812693
You are looking way too deep into it.
They want to keep fighting.
They know civilizing everything leads to no fighting.
The know killing everything leads to no fighting.
They know what they want, and what stops them from getting it. And they act directly. No fucking around.
I liked how they toned down the normal 'orks must act like retarded comic relief' part of GW canon. The stupidest orruks have all been slaughtered off by the time they get big enough to be brutes.

I think you hit a point there that's an overarching issue with AoS, a lot of the factions have lost their motivation and the motivations factions actually have suck. All of the death factions = slaves of Nagash, no ifs or buts fuck you Nagash is your god now, NH? Nagash's bitch. FEC? Nagash's bitch. LoN?? Trick question, Nagash is already his own bitch.
Destruction is literally just destroy cause you're related to Gorkamorkas left nutsack somehow, gobbos destroy, orks destroy, ogres exist.
Order actually has some varied motivations, KO want money despite living in the land of unlimited precious metals and jewels, FS want money to revive their god, DoK want to suckle mommy Morathi, IDK need more souls, Sylvaneth want flora paradise, Seraphon exist(?) and the rest are SIGMAR SIGMAR SIGMAR THIS WEEK ONLY AT THE JOHN GRYPHHOUND FARMING CHARIOT ARENA SIGMARRRRR.
I get the grand alliances but apart from Order none of them have any conflicting motivations beyond "I must kill you for my god" and "I must kill you for existing"

IIRC, most Seraphon are effectively non-corporeal and lack any kind of individuality because they're all manifested by the memories of the Slann.

Normally, you can expand from this by saying your Seraphon have gained self-awareness over time, but it seems like a lot of people interpret it as being that they're incapable of any kind of character.

Honestly I would feel the AoS story would really benefit from racial tensions. The fantasy game had great rivalries between the dwarves and the elves, would be nice if something happened in the progression of sigmar that mirrored that.

Did I fuck up? Everyone says that the new Vanguard guys are way better than the old Liberators/Judicators/Prosecutors and that I should have just bought Soul Wars.

I mainly just like throwing dice and pushing models around, so I'm not too concerned with min/maxing or being hypercompetitive, but I don't want to throw my money away either. What would the next step after this be to developing them into a full army?*

Alith Anar is basically a 1 man genocide. He became legend because he is older than other high elves and GW left most of his lore unexplained because his age and abilites are beyond elves. He was like a wraith with some sort of magic to achieve the feats he did, appearing wherever he wanted and killing the amount that he did.
The racist memes are because he hated and was very brutal to dark elves (the elven minority), as he would hang them on cliffs for years to warn others.

>THE RAMHORNS OF RAVENAK
A tribe of ogres led by a tyrant named Kretticus Khan. The worship (you're never gonna believe this) Ravenak rather than Gorkamorka, tracing their pantheistic beliefs back to the first ogre butcher that learned how to summon Ravenak's aspect (the endless spell).
They view each god as an animal, with Ravenak being a large, angry, meat-eating ram.
They're largely peaceful, for an army of ogres, and mainly trade with other powers, they only consume other civilizations when necessary (either for food, or when Khan thinks their numbers need a little culling).
They got their monsters from a BCR army they came into conflict with, taking them after killing the original ogre riders. Kretticus fashioned his maul from the shaft of the frostlord he killed.
He likes to think he's a smart lad and collects lots of books, even if he can't actually read.

Nah just the way they refer Nurgle. Here’s an excerpt from my lore document on how they worship Nurgle:

The inhabitants of the Rotbark Wetlands worship a more “feral” form of Nurgle as they often refer to him as The Primordial Father, or the Great Toad, because they see Nurgle as a ruthless, putrid beast in the shape of a great plague toad. It’s only natural that inhabitants from Ghur to see their patron in a more beastial form. The Rotbark Levy incorporates the cycle of life and death as to how a toad matures from tadpole to toad, before it dies and crawling out its bloated body are many new tadpoles that repeat the cycle, with Nurgle being the only one not to die, being the constant driving force behind the cycle instead. The sacrifices and gifts to Nurgle offered by the Rotbark Levy also represents that in that they leave offerings and gifts to him at great shrines and giant Gnarlmaws

You could always give it a shot, anon. Part of miniature painting is figuring out your own recipes. You can always practice on painted sprue pieces or old throwaway minis to make sure you're not ruining a nice model though.

I'm not an expert by any means, but I think that regular blue paint thinned to hell and back would work well. Blue obviously gives the white a colder look, so you might need to use a different color (maybe super washed down seraphim sepia or something) depending on what you're going for. Just remember to use lahmian medium and not water to make your wash, or else the consistency will be fucked (Lahmian Medium is just GW paint with no color pigments, so it blends better with paint than water does).

What model is it, anyway?
>>
>>67817184
You get two handed, lance with shield, lance with pistol, one handed with shield or one handed with pistol and any of them can take a banner on top of whatever they have.

That is to say, they can do that for the next three or four weeks. Then they get reduced to the guy with just a flamberge.

Hobbylet, also you don't play the game if you don't understand the important of a low drop army.
>>
>>67817596
>>67817608
I understand that most Battalions aren't worth fielding ever. Take the Nurgle Battalions. They've got really really good effects, but they're 220 points. That's more than ten percent of your army at 2000 points. Just making it worth fielding means using at least thirty Blightkings, which means you won't have enough space to put anything fast into your army, which defeats the purpose of the Battalion.
The only good Battalions are either ones with no dead weight (extremely rare) or ones that are very small and easy to fill (only available to certain armies, particularly the new ones).
That's why you see so many Councils of Blood and Thricefold Befoulements. They're really powerful rules and made up of only really powerful models.

>>67812693
Hmm, kinda? Gorkamorka wants to fight forever, and so do those that follow him. It's not so much 'unchangeable things' that go against him, it's more that if you build a fortress, then obviously someone needs to go try and knock it down, because that's the entire point of a fortress.

It also means not killing everyone, because if you kill everyone that means there's nobody left to fight. A line after the previous quote has Zephacleas realize what friendship means to orruks:

>Zephacleas stared at the orruk. Despite himself, he was beginning to comprehend how Gordrakk saw the world. For the orruks, there was no difference between an enemy and a friend. A friend was just an enemy you weren’t fighting at the moment, and an enemy was just a friend who was trying to kill you.

I always find this is interesting. Orruks don't fight out of spite or hatred, unless the enemy makes that a reason. An orruk can be trying to rip someone's head off one second, and share a nice fungus ale the second, all while having no hard feelings about just killing or getting killed by who he was just fighting.

It also creates interesting scenarios where orruks win a battle and the victims are just waiting to get slaughtered, only for the orruks to pack up and leave, maybe smack the survivors on the back for a 'great fight' and telling them to rebuild their fortress better for the next time.

Big boxes like the Devoted of Morathi are limited run discount boxes. GW calls them "battleforces" and puts them out around the holidays. Unfortunately, you can't really get them once they're gone. As for the Cauldron, I'm seeing it on the US webstore right now, so it's probably just that your webstore is out of stock and waiting on a delivery from GW. If you go to your FLGS, they can special order it for you.

What do you guys think the odds are of additional armies coming to Warcry in the future? It seems kind of strange that stuff like Blades of Korne or Chaos Demons weren't included, but they could have just been holding more stuff back for later card pack releases.

I'm assuming it wouldn't be hard to shoehorn in some lore reason for the Skaven to be fucking around at the Allpoints considering how often they like to cockblock chaos.

Pretty high. It's probably fair to assume Warcry will develop like Kill Team and be added on over time.

New additions likely won't be today or tomorrow, but maybe we'll at least see biannual updates that'll expand the available factions and units.
>>
>>67817818
I feel like they wanted the new kits to be the focus, and they'll probably add more Chaos stuff later, after we get the other two warbands.
>>
>>67817846

Honestly they could drop rules for Garrek's Reavers or Magore's Fiends into a White Dwarf and I'd be pretty happy.

Some of the Underworlds warbands are too small to be usable by themselves, but there are a few that would slot in to Warcry pretty perfectly I think.

I have a blob of 20 Bloodreavers that can make a turn 1 charge thanks to Khul and a Bloodstoker. It's not the greatest strategy ever but it's goddamn hilarious. I forget the exact number since it's been a while since I've played them but it's something like 1CP for a 24+D6 inch charge.

A nice wide wall of Bloodreavers won't be too terribly threatening, but they will keep your opponent's unit's occupied for a turn while your heroes, calvary, and Blood Warriors make their way across the field to crash right into the lines.

I emailed them the other day to tell them about the Drillmaster chain piece being broken out of the box and asking if there was any way I could get a replacement bit since the contact points are too small to glue. They asked me for a copy of my receipt, I sent it, then they asked me for a picture and an address, I sent them yesterday.

I figure if anything they might just send the single sprue it was on but it would be hilarious if they sent me another Warcry box.

Speaking of, are any of you using your Warcry warbands in AOS? I play Blades of Khorne so them not being able to take a mark would fuck up all of my synergies.

It's pretty normal. GW may price gouge but they have consistently great customer service in regards to damaged/missing bits.

They generally the whole kit (Or individual unit if you got a big combined box).
Its cheaper just to send a box through the normal system than to pay a staffer to spend the time to find the kit, cut off the bit and mail it and then have a kit at their end they can't sell (because it's now missing a bit)
>>
>>67818677

I get shit from my friends when we play because I like super dense tables (especially in 40k).

I didn't understand the whole "Americans don't use a lot of terrain" meme until I saw some pictures from tournaments. I think it's mostly a tournament thing (since buying/building/painting terrain for dozens of tables gets expensive in terms of both money and prep time), most of the people I play with like using a pretty healthy amount of terrain.

It's not as big of an issue in AOS since there is significantly less shooting than in 40K, but I think a large amount of good looking, well painted terrain makes the game significantly more thematic, and (for me at least) helps to get a player absorbed into the game. There's a reason they call terrain The Third Army.

Keep building and collecting and playing them.

Worst case scenario the rumors are true and in two or three years they get squatted but you've had two or three years worth of games and you will still have a bunch of sweetass models. You'll still be able to play them with legacy rules, and as a bonus you'll be able to buy tons of cheap models when people start offloading them on ebay for dirt cheap.

Best case scenario is that the rumor is, like 95% of rumors here on 4chan, complete bullshit.

>once they squat them he will tell you he didn't know it would happen
Which will most likely be true. Managers rarely hear about anything before we do.

why do they want to squat lizards again? just not enough space in the releases or interest by the sculptors?

They don't fit the AoS aesthetic, too old world looking.

Just basecoated another Underworlds warband, count-as Ironskull's Boyz this time around.
There's something wonky going on with the neck area of the female model, but I can't really pinpoint the reason. Maybe it's the weird lack of of a gorget?
>>
>>67819712
they dont, its baseless shitposting
>>
>>67819778
thanks! trying to get them all to be slightly different but still not look to colourfull once they're in a unit

Is that leadbelcher spray?
Because mine didn't quite had that finished (either way with a single coat later I had it)

Anyone seen good examples of the star drake with wings reposed?

It looks bad as is (posewise) but I wonder if it could look better
>>
>>67820132
It would have been RADICAL if they had sculpted it with open wings. Also insanely huge silhouette and even more of a nightmare to transport.
>>
>>67820170
They could've just put armour around the wing joint areas and used plugs for the wing joint so it'd be easy to magnetise
>>
>>67820132
use a different model altogether

The Dispossessed battalion was a raging trashfire, why would anyone use it instead of just running the AA for the same thing with less restrictions on what you can take?
