good khorne rules when
>>78554205>Which faction is the strongest lorewise?
This guy is my favourite Skaven model so far. Just did basecoats and wash. Next step is layers, highlights and finishing touches.
Am I the only one that thinks the new Blood Knights are kinda disappointing looking? For me the shoulder pads and helmets kinda kills it for me.
>>78554266Nah, they look great. I just don't like the bright red armour, they'll look better painted like the horses.
>>78554266Not to worry anon, you can get greatsword helmets online and kitbash them with black knight helmet bits
>>78554205Usually it's Chaos that's the stronges, but their resistance is doing way better than they were doing in Warhammer Fantasy and 40k.
What are you aoschads working on tonight?
You fags really think Silent People will become a thing?
>>78554266I'm not a huge fan of them overall but I don't mind them. If I had to choose between this kit and that old nightmare kit I'd easily pick the new one
>>78554302The diminished Chaos Wanking is the best thing about AoS, honestly.
>>78554266Yeah, you're the only person in the world to think that, it's not like this general had a massive shitfit over them or anything.
>>78554301I'm thinking of just modifying the Black Knight kit instead and do them in a Bretonnia flavor.
>>78554314Need to figure out some armor for the dragon and some more skulls or batwings for the riders armor
>I don't mind playing against a strong list or a top tier army so long as the player has put in the effort of painting it all.Would you agree?
>>78554314Big ship boiDecided to joint his left leg like one anon suggested, still a lot of work on that leg to go tho
>>78554314that cloth is super smooth
>>78554364I wouldn't know I don't play
>>78554327I guess it is a different perspective. In WFB the civilised world was mostly intact, facing threat from Chaos. In AoS, Chaos is ascendant with civilisation being the upstart. It does weirdly make Chaos feel weaker in AoS since they don't really win much.
What's the roll of flagellants? Spikey damage + mw as they flee? Are they any good?
>>78554302I actually like that the 'good guys' are the invaders in AoS. It's a nice twist on the formula.
>>78554266they are the mediocre update everyone was half expecting for their transition to plasticthey lost any kind of presence and weight, movement or restraintthe kit visibly suffers for the compromises taken to make all bits interchangeable in a mixed gender unit and their visual characterisation as "the super heavy cavalry" has been replaced with larger decorations on the armourwhich only end up making the rider look smaller underneath
>>78554364I only play narrative.
>>78554357This is based AFLove seeing different flavours of dwarfYou should give the mawcrusher some horns protruding from under the chin in subtle mimicry of a beard
>>78554364>says he doesnt mind playing against strong armies>posts stormcastit hurts
>>78554371Love the portcullis loincloth
>>78554364I prefer a fun game over a good looking armyyou can watch the armies outside of the game too
>>78554396They're just worse freeguild guard desu
>>78554327I kinda preferred the old Chaos wank over the Saturday morning cartoon villains desu. That being said, I like Destruction a lot.
Confess your sins to me, my children
>>78554427>Implying I was calling Stormcast strong.Just found a random image to add to the post. Not that deep.
>>78554398They do look sorta like Aelves.
>>78554205>TQChaos, not even close
>>78554389Chaos doesn't win much anymore, but Archaon did murder a bunch of universes before the Mortal Realms took shape. And let's not act like Chaos didn't beat the utter shit out of everyone either.
>>78554451i play with partially assembled miniatures because i cant wait to finish painting>>78554462it still hurts nonetheless
>>78554451I haven't actually played since early 2019.
>>78554438Seems like they could need characters that has some buff synergy with them or something to make them an appealing choice.
>>78554451I still haven't finished a SC i got for Christmas
>>78554469that's because elves in both warhammers have been similarly reliant on oversized hats and armour decorations more than any other race
>>78554515They had warrior priests, but they squatted them with CoS. CoS is the root of all evil.
>>78554451I have never gotten around to play the game outside of a demo. I was sorta waiting for the Cities of Sigmar book to come out, but it wasn't what I was hoping for.
>>78554515Yeah they're a unit that needs a buffing piece and a considerate allegiance ability to be good
>>78554451I started a Lumineth army. Been super keen pn them, painting up a full box in its entirety before grabbing a new one. Honestly, I just love Elves and figured these guys were the new High Elf stand ins. Didn't realise lads hated them so much. I feel bad for collecting them now, like no one will want to play me just for the fact its them.
>>78554451Is this guy any good? Fucking cool model, but the rules seem eh
>>78554371Great progress, anon. I'm at full mast.
>>78554535Sounds like CoS needs an update that doesn't delete a bunch of options and instead adds more options.
>Found 2 extra boxes of Daemonettes I forgot to have>I'm full of commissions to do, months and months of work>Yet the idea of eventually painting them gave me the energy to paint commissions quicker, I've been really productive in these daysThank you Daemonettes
>>78554451I bitched a lot about Lumineth in the days prior to their release, but I actually like them. I was just conflicted and sad they were changing so many HE designs.
>>78554371no sack full of barrels at the groin?
>>78554451I've got nearly a 2k point DoK army all on sprues and in boxes, all of tools and brushes, and even most of the paints for schemes I've thought of. Ive had all this for the past 4 months now and I doubt I'll start assembling and painting them soon.
>>78554569yeah, that's not happening
Anons anyone know where I can get a dankhold sized sword that's relatively ornate? Was looking at a the great unclean one but it's just a bit too big. Doesn't have to be a gw bit
FINALLY like 1500 points of my army showing up today. Hopefully when I get home from work. Gonna post picture when it gets here
>>78554613Yeah, it's gonna be squatted and not turned into a proper coherent army with a strong identity and playstyle, just like LoN... oh wait.
>>78554633Like, Reapers' Fire Giant?Should be around appropriate size, i think?
>>78554638Nice. I just recieved the WD I've been waiting for 2 months and a half now. But the subscription issues are already a month late. To think they tell you they're supposed to arrive BEFORE the stores get them.
>>78554451I'm a dirty furfag.
>>78554613I can tell. They're a great concept, but GW just sorta treated it as the rejects army for miniatures that sold well enough.What I also wanted out of the book was the ability to have thematic rules for any of the 7 realms cities, but they just sorta have Fire and Life in it.
>>78554543Just the low T faggots here hate them. And you notice that it's cuck posting when they do screech, because they have no defense, both lore wise and rule wise, against us. It's literally just shitposting and coping.It's mainly just pathetic Spiderfang and Brayherd players that pissed off that the Lumineth are more relevant to the narrative than they are. Because everybody wants a fucking Spider Goblin story.
>>78554652>soulblight>any of thosethey're a sidegame expansion: the armythey will be practically as playable as the warcry army
>>78554664That could work really well actually. I'm making my own troll king to replace throgg. I'm riffing on the sword in the stone myth by having my dankhold just rip the sword out, but I'll model a hunk of stone attached to the end of the blade
>>78554578What are the economics of paid commissions? Like how much do you charge and how long do you spend on a model?
>>78554674Don't be so quick. They've already established all the prep work to turn CoS into Empire 2.0, which is IMO what it should have been from the beggining. It'll also mean it won't be stuck with using cities as allegiances.
>>78554678>Because everybody wants a fucking Spider Goblin story.Unironically yes.
>>78554261>Literally solo'd a whole grand alliance.
>>78554451I can’t concentrate today, so I’m not going to paint.
>>78554678All of that is really interesting, but it doesn't address the fact that large parts of the lumineth range look ridiculously retarded.
>>78554451I keep waiting for some 'new' faction to jump in with from the start. So far, nothing has worked for me.Kharadron? Flight stands.Idoneth? Hard to paint and flight stands. OBR? Chunky bodies and retard faces dont work for me. Lumineth? Bad faces, bad hats, stupid mounts, everyone wearing pyjamas, Teclis is the worst 'centrepiece big boy model' GW has yet released. Other hybrid releases like GSG or SGL dont work for me since some kits are old and languishing in the dust compared to the new, things like grots, grave guard etc.
>>78554678I'd prefer spider goblin stories over elf stories
>>78554451I only play Warcry these days, but preordered the Cursed City.
>>78554593are you suggesting I give the ship monster some ballsanon you know ships always have female names
>>78554719I mean if you don't want to read the book and instead make up reasons to be mad, it's up to you.
>>78554678Your entire range is NPE, and the only hurdle is learning how to play AoS. Having a remote competency and not being a retard to use your buffs makes you Extremely powerful and breaking many of the normal conventions of how the game is played. No LoS on archers, moving 121inches, double activations, auto hitting, auto casting, auto unbinding. I think the new models are cool but playing you is ass
>>78554731>like grotsthey're identical to the new ones what are you on about?
>>78554731The leftover GSG doesn't really need to be replaced, how could they be better?
I wish ogors were portrayed as being smarter than they are in the lore
>>78554580Yeah, same. I was interested in them when first announced, spent months bitching about the designs online after the Cow reveal, tentatively got the initial box just to make up my mind but I actually fucking love the models once I got my hands on them, even Stoneguard. I think long term when I finally get everything painted they might be my favorite army.
>>78554754The dreaded futa necrofex colossus. The cock is another cannon
>>78554705I'll wait and see what they do. In the meantime I got myself a Cursed City box that will be a nice start for that future Vampire book.
>>78554761>>78554763Spiders, regular foot grots/shooty grots and some heroes are old and shit.
>>78554731I have a similar problem but I decided to just go with soulblight gravelords and not buy any old models, even if it means just being a paint only dude for a while. But I get more satisfaction out of painting stuff than playing, just been limited to underworlds til now.
>>78554702There are models that take a day each and models that you can do 10-20 a day.I try to calculate how much time I'm gonna spend, and try to earn 40-50€ every day (focus on "try").That usually means normal troops cost 4,5€ each, with elites going to 6-7€, but it can swing a lot.A horde of Skellies is different from Khinerai.Also basing and/or building take time and cost money.
>>78554763Not him but while the grots are fine I the scuttle boss and spider riders could use a update. The spider riders less so but they add showing their age a bit.The spider line is pretty limited in general I'd like to see a expansion
>>78554746yes to bothalso prow cannons
>>78554678>Because everybody wants a fucking Spider Goblin story.Yeah, that would be pretty great desu. The goblins are my favorite part of AoS so far.
>>78554731>Idoneth? Hard to paint and flight stands.Other than thralls nigga you are tripping. You can paint anything besides like namarti however the duck you want. I'm gonna make metallic shimmery eels cuz I can. Also just don't use the flight stands, make a base to hold them
>>78554678The rules are very strong and the lore is actually interesting. The models though are the legit criticism. Outside of the basic high elf copy pasta they are full of bizarre helmets, odd animal theming and extreme dynamic posing on a rock. Plus pajamas.
>>78554790you're mentally handicappednormal night goblins have no difference in designs, proportions or textures compared to their new squig riding kit
>>78554858They're very static and some bits like the nets look awful. >>78554830I dont wanna make custom bases for aeels, shaerks, taertles and so on. I have no experience doing that. Call me a hobbylet or whatever, it is what it is.
>>78554451I often find painting my Idoneth frustrating, but the end result is worth it.>>78554731>Idoneth? Hard to paint and flight stands.No fucking kidding. Deceptively packed with details.
>>78554855Good thing nowadays you can ignore both temples and still have more options than most armies.
>>78554855I honestly don't get the pajama pants thing. Do you people really vomit compulsively at the sight of loose fitting pants?It's not like it's a weird thing historically or unfitting with their vaguely eastern stylings.
>>78554205Let's settle it once and for all. Single choice, only /tg/.What is your favorite faction in Age of Sigmar? (/tg/ poll)https://www.strawpoll.me/42915020https://www.strawpoll.me/42915020https://www.strawpoll.me/42915020
>>78554772i think you might be quoting the wrong guy
>>78554898I don't dislike it (though I'll probably greenstuff some leather belts around the kneepads so they aren't just floating there), but I prefer the shillouete and aesthetic that full robes that swordmasters/stoneguard or even wardens have compared to bladelords.
>>78554876>They're very staticthey're a horde infantry, they're not intended to be jumping left and right on rocks or swinging their spears>nets look awfulthey're just nets, there's nothing wrong with themyou're a retard that thinks age means having flaws but you're not even capable of identifying them
>>78554905>https://www.strawpoll.me/42915020Clicks vote for Disciples of Tzeentch. Checks results. 0 Votes.Hmmm
>>78554930You could buy the stoneguard and put the swordmaster top halves on them
>>78554898I'm not gonna get into how realistic fighting in certain clothes is because its dumb when dealing with fantasy races but just about any other alternative to the baggy clothes would have looked better.
>>78554954Sometimes it takes a while. Or it's Tzeentch trickery.
>>78554898It's a mixed bag for me. A lot of the minis will have one minor detail that just sorta ruins the design for me. Like a giant collar or absurdly large horns on a helmet.
>>78554905Do we need to settle this once and for all every single week?
>>78554898just looks a bit off with their shoulder pads and helmets
>>78554950>they're a horde infantry, they're not intended to be jumping left and right on rocks or swinging their spearsThis is something I don't get from some people here. Do they really want their basic ass troops to have heroic dynamic poses leaping off tactical rocks? You know what to get when they make dynamic poses for that kind of units? Unplayable models that get stuck on eachother all the fucking time.
>>78554905>8 people love FyreslayersI do not believe that these people are being completely honest.
>>78554963Too expensive for something that doesn't really bother me, it's just a preference.
>>78554950Look at some recent horde infantry like the Luminth spearmen or the arkanaut company. They arent jumping off rocks, doing cartwheels but they have more than 1 pose.
>>78555005I like them, but I'm not sure if I want to collect them.
>>78554905I'll vote for DoT now because there is no Shadows Elves but that would have been my choice.Also people really expect GW to make new AoS unique armies with all the factions that are in the game already, either some shit is getting squatted or we end up one quadrillion faction that never get shit.
its settledwe are a Fyreslayers board from now on.
>>78554905Based. I kneel.
>>78555025>Look at some recent horde infantry like the Luminth spearmen>they have more than 1 pose.you're confirmed to be a retard
>>78555072>>78555074No Fyreslayers in the next one, got it.
>>78555078Having neutral poses that don't have their arms flailing off like the ETB chaos warriors doesn't mean they don't have several poses.
>>78555072>>78555074All it settled is that it revealed there is a single Fyreslayer player in here.
>>78555072Once and for all, no do overs. I'm glad we could come to this decision.
I got another idea for you poll-anon, most annoying aosg personality
>>78555072Man the second people realized reddit disliked fyreslayers the contrarion protocol kicked in hard huh
>>78555111look at these several poses
>>78555116Mannfred von Cuntstein
>>78555116Most annoying /aosg/ personality?https://www.strawpoll.me/42915431https://www.strawpoll.me/42915431https://www.strawpoll.me/42915431Go!
>>78555113Now to be fair there are AT LEAST two of us
>>78555152>https://www.strawpoll.me/42915431Where's loomiefags and DoK coomers?
>>78555165That's a DLC poll for later.
>>78555138That looks like an absolute joy to transport.
>>78555152That guy that is obsessed with vampire wrists but also likes the mask vampire.
>>78555138Yes, anon, as I just explained to you, you don't need to have your arms flailing around to have different poses. Each of those models has their legs in different poses. For a basic troop unit with pikes is the perfect amount of variations.
>>78555152imagine being this butt-blasted by people ruining your polls
>>78555184I think that anon might a figment of your imagination
>>78554266Its their armor, specifically from shoulders up, including that atrocious high fantasy helmet.
What is your most hated model or unit? No picking an entire army, just a model or unit you fucking hate. Tell us why.
>>78554905>38 unique posters>54 votesUhhhh
>>78555152>no ben>no slavposter>no settrabotshit poll
>>78555138Those fucking massive spears look fucking retarded to transport and actually play with. How would you even put a large model next to them?
>>78555176I'm going to be moving some time this year and I'm dreading it, I've never transported minis before and it seems like it'll be a nightmare
>>78555191so do moonclan grotsthey even have more poses than lumineth for their archers
>>78555072How could you compete with THIS
>>78555199Honestly, the only thing i dislike about Fyreslayers are that their metal implants/tattoos/runes trigger my trypophobia and creeps me out
>>78555207Stupid fucking flying units that use these transparent plastic holds, I hate it so fucking much. Why can't they figure out how to make them fly without that?
>>78555220You can't. Anything bigger than themselves doesn't fit under the pikes. I kinda wish they went with normal spears like mortek guard. Not to mention every single fucking piece of art shows them with normal spears.
>>78555072Age of Hot Dog
>>78555220At least they are historically accurate pikes. Looks nice in a Phalanga.
>>78555220Everything about lumineth from models to rules to fluff is engineered to annoy. You cannot disprove me.
>>78555237What in fuck are those proportions?
>>78555237what kind of retarded elf-fag designed this shit?her armour is needlessly edgyher feet are small and unsexy-likethere are not even axes attached to her braids
>>78555250Get a hand drill and some brass rod
>>78554731Play Stormchad Eternals then.
>>78555269Historically accurate pikes don't have blades as long and wide as a longsword.
>>78555237Some tranny designed that probably. Those proportions are way too masculine.It's a man with tits. Not even nice tits.
>>78555207I despise Lumineth Wardens and Sentinels. Just for the reason you might be thinking of, but the fact that both of these units can A. Cast and Unbind and B. Aren't limited to casting their warscroll spell like most other casting infantry in the game is such a load of shit that I feel doesn't get addressed as much as it should.
So when do the Fyreslayers cast a bull idol out of urgold to worship?
>>78555269More like phallusa you homo elf
>>78555287I might, but if I shorten them the points look too big and they look strange holding them with two hands and the shield.
>>78555275>TFW no thicc dorf GF
>>78555269>At least they are historically accurate pikes.
When did they change the picture for skeletons in the app?
>>78555131What did you expect from this shitheap?
>>78555232A lot of people don't appreciate that the reason a lot of old Warhammer minis had shit tier poses was because logistics reasons and that they took into account that it was a game piece.
>>78555305I play them and even I've been saying that vanari units don't make sense to be wizards at all. Much less now that the army has actual scinari wizards to take.
>>78555301Seems like they were going for Swordstaffs, but made them way too retardedly long
>>78555316Keep dreaming and one day your wish might be granted
>>78555349It's a possibility.>>78555359That's not a pike. This is a pike.
>>78555184why are you so obsessed with that opinion?
>>78555361So much potential unrealised, becoming a thing in AoS early days was truly a curse.
>>78555376This >>78555359 was supposed to be a swordstaff
>>78555361That salamander a cute.
>>78554321You never know, faction updates and releases are entirely random
>>78554451I have some old high elves on squares that I run as Lumineth sometimes.
>>78554321no, that's pretty clear and intentional
>>78555238Coward. purge your weakness.
>>78554451I still haven't finished painting, let alone building my tzeentch battleforce from two years ago.
>>78555471That doesn't look as bad. Kinda like a pomegranateI think it's the part where they're imbedded in the flesh, which freaks me out
Fineshed 3/9 of my praetor guard, ready to spread the word of sigmar, glory be to him.
>>78555072>elves are for insecure redditors>dwarves are for 4channelersProven once and for all. Also all the “le aryan ubermensch aelf” posters seem to conveniently ignore that Lumineth are Asian. Interesting
So much backlog that I've got the urge to just purge it all and start fresh. inb4 you'll just do the same shit over again and horse plastic like a consoomer. Sick of all these fucking boxes and sprues in my room. Consoom at a reasonable pace my fellow anons. Only buy what you will paint right away, do not hoard. Learn from me
>>78555490Those models aged so fucking badly
>>78555490Based as fuck anon.
>>78554321I kinda doubt they'll be anything more than a Warcry/Underworlds warband with some half-arsed warscrolls for some AoS faction
>>78555490At least paint the shield decals
>>78555490looks good, black and gold are a good combo, though i feel like the crests on the shields could use some color
So at this point the old skeletons are last chance to buy?
>>78555549Yeah, I’d pick them up while you can before your only option is the dancing monopose guys
>>78555503They look great, the fuck are you talking about?
>>78555549Yeah they already went to "sold out online" on the australian store so get them now if you want them.
>>78555559Love your Blades of Khorne
>>78555503fucking zoomer response
>Lumineth men are so infertile and faggy that the women took over and clone themselves to keep society goingWTF I thought we were aryans? Does GW condone white genocide?
>>78555503Not as bad as your sight, it seems.
>>78555596Elves aren't white.
>>78555536it would pull the eye toward the shield, i dont want this edge highlight is enough they are suposed to be grimdark.
>>78555611Don't answer, he's been doing this for days now.
>>78555573>>78555595>>78555600>completely static potato men on badly proportioned mounts far outclassed by Gryphchargers Grogs need not apply. You will not be missed.
>>78555632Grimdark doesn't mean unfinished
>>78555649That's a nice zenithal priming, what's the scheme?
>>78555632I'm looking at the shield either way since it's just a void dead center amigo
Crypt flayers shouldn't exist, they're a bastard unit created to bulk out the FEC roster so GW wouldn't have to make new kits
>>78555471that's disgusting, there's a reason we are not supposed to enjoy those shapes
>>78555685This, also get rid of the fyreslayer monsters, it ruins their aesthetic
>>78555694You ruin the aesthetic of the human race
>>78555685False they're great and look cool.
>>78555685I wish more multikits had new bastardised versions out of them
>>78555471What is this?
Holy FUCK zombies are crazy now, look at those horde bonuses
Remember to stuff your cushions with intestines.
>>78555635Lol, look at this retarded Stormie, thinking his shitty fucking retarded owl-zebras are better than the Chad Demigryphs
>>78555764Cope.They're objectively better models.
>>78555752They were always like this, holy fuck are you guys fucking retarded?Your own fault for sleeping on them just because their models were shite.
>>78555774Look at this Stormie fag not even knowing the meaning of words like "objectively" and "better"It's ok retard, you can keep your stupid owl-zebras. Nobody else wants them.
Oh shit old skeles seem to be no longer available from the GW webstore
>>78555807Enjoy the dancing Primaris skeletons death bro
>get home>check mailbox>letter from landlord informing me I'll get a €586 refund on my annual utilities chargeI might buy more rats
>>78555774if your turbo zebra is so cool, how come you get them in start collecting boxes?check.mate.
>>78555806>has to resort to art because he knows the models are shitYeeeeep, always the same with grogs.
>>78555853are you gonna call every single model update primaris?
>>78555884>Has to resort to calling another a Grog because he has no actual argumentsClassic stormfags

>>78555886>are you going to call every monopose overpriced WOW-aesthetic model that is just bigger _____ primaris?Yes
>>78555754Is this from Glutos's model?
Why is GW so bad at writing rules? You can’t tell me they made a unit that does mortal wounds at 30” range ignoring line of sight and thought>yeah this is balanced
>>78556110Start resuscitating it, because it's starting to OD?
>>78556137The Coven Throne. Because nothing says Vampire Aristocracy like lounging on some shit pillows.
>>78556119>wow aestheticIt's literally the same aesthetic the army had before. It even copies designs from grave guard.
>>78555764I mean, yes. Gryph Chargers are much cooler monsters then Demigryphs
>>78555549Remember that you get 10skeletons and 5 geave guard in the LoN Warcry box

Anyone else fucking hate the scaly cloaks on some of the SC STD Warriors?They just look like shit to me
>>78556152Can't even use the proper "than" in a sentence.Opinion discarded.Fuck you and your zebras
>>78554451I don’t like painting whatsoever, I lack a vision to chase, and the knowledge of how to achieve it, I just buy second handed painted models and lie that I did the painting
>>78556227Theyre cool because in my group we have an StD player and a seraphon player and the former is painting the cloaks to look like the hides of the latters saurus
>>78556244The best part is how your only recurring criticism isn't even part of the actual model but the paintjob
>>78556223Why is my new Slaanesh tome so undertuned then?
>>78554451Sometimes I just lie in bed and refresh /aosg/ with videos on in the background instead of painting because I have nagash tier body proportions and get really cold if it's below 80 degrees and I get cold while painting.
Well /aosg/ I’ve finally done it, thanks to all my Lumineth friends and the inspiring story of how Lumineth society changed for the better, I’ve decided to transition!
>>78556270Well, i also hate how underarmored they are, how skinny they are (despite the fat metal babies riding them), i think the bird legs in the front with horse legs in the back look like shit and would be horrible to actually run, i hate how their feathered, with just the face and slightly of the neck, i hate the overly dramatic poses with only a single point of contact to the base
That's the lamest attempt at bait I've seen in years. It's kind of sad.
>>78554314I just finished these, though I might add some tufts later.

Recently got the Soul Wars box. Would the SC! Thunderstrike box be a good addition for the stormcasts?
>>78555305Even if they just had Power of Hysh its a bullshit strong ability.Oh look 1/3 my hits do MWs.
>>78555214This might sound scary, anon, but not everyone perusing this thread feels the need to post a comment.And now you can add +1 to the 'Posters' count. Yay.
>>78556332>get really cold if it's below 80 degreesHow is that even physically possible?
>>78556457Try filling out the incomplete units first, buy the stormcast half of soul wars on eBay. You’ll still have some spare but you’ll fill out most of the units.
>>78556468They are using subhuman metrics aka farenheit.
were zodiacal godbeasts killed in the necroquake
>>78556464I'd move it to the wound roll. In truth I'd delete it entirely because I think mortal wounds should be rare and prized, not a requirement, but that's a different discussion.
>>78556506I know but isn't this like 25C?
>>78556457Both Soul Wars and Thunderstrike brotherhood give you incomplete units, also Thunderstrike units are old and currently weak as hell rules wise, but that can change.
>>78554746Make her into dickgirl

>>78556539I don't think americans themselves understand fahrenheit.
>>78556544>and Thunderstrike brotherhood give you incomplete unitsOnly one incomplete unit and the heroes(the stuff you actually want) already make up the cost of the box

>>78555072we already had this poll/aosg/ is a skaven board
AoS doesn't have these huge ass narrative projects that 40k and even MESBG players do. Why? There's barely anyone doing army showcases either.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlnPkZPNDSQ&ab_channel=Zorpazorp
>>78556680AgreedCubicle can suck my left nut
>>78556885based and warpstonepilled
>>78556680soulbound is officially licensed. its as cannon as anything else
>>78556670Once was femdomed by a girl with that build
>>78556892since it aos content doesnt rake in as many views as 40kshit does and MESBG has the excuse of being LotR AND 90% a narrative game anyways
>>78554314Recovering from surgery, finishing off vanguard hunters when Im lucid enough to paint
>>78556929Careful anon the facts might hurt their feelings
Moulderbro! show us your work on your great Fimir and excellent rats!
>>78556892Dogshit lore, maybe?
>>78556855Yeah but is there anything directly saying it
>>78556521zodiacal god beasts seem to be more powerful and more fundamental to the realms than the gods of the pantheonstheyre more like chaos gods than incarnates, but they exist in the mortal realms instead of the realm of chaos
>"BoC and Skaven could NEVER be destruction! theyre too tied to the forces of chaos!>Fimir
>>78556939What kind of surgery?Did you get lobotomized? Would explain the stormcast
>>78556929Not a corebook, tome or campaign book released directly by GW? Not canon and I don't care. It's fanfiction. Nothing more, a lot less.
>>78556939Nice, godspeed anon
>>78556939Drill your bolter barrels
>>78556885>>78556906Begone, foul ratspawn
>>78556980They are stated to be beyond the order of life and death and reside on the firmament, however they dont really get feats in their star form beyond the chaos gods seeing them as impressive
>>78556892I'd say because AoS doesn't really have any visual world identity. 40k does, everyone knows about the space gothic cathedral cities and MESBG does too because the films created lots of iconic locations. Even WHFB had pretty important locations with established appereances. AoS has nothing like that and GW isn't really helping the situation when the boards they on most battle reports look like this.
>>78557007careful son, thats a lethal dose of copium
>>78557047Your fanfiction will never be canon, Cubicle tranny.
>>78557007It's ok to be scared

>>78557062Acknowledging that a piece of media officially licensed by gw as canon is not a endorsement of that media or it's quality anon
>>78557163Anon subscribes to a natural law theory of canonicity
>>78557163The only thing that I've seen them publish that was stated not to be canon was the rerelease of ian watsons space marine. Besides that soulbound is fun and fits in fine

>according to soul bound Lumineth women routinely go onto pilgrimages to auralan temples>their husbands are barredBros...wtf does this mean?
You've already used that bait this thread.
>>78557381I miss moulderbro/fimiranonHe was a cool guy
>>78557508He's not gone - saw him post his rat ogres last week before autists sperged out about one arm being other than the other on what is literally a creature pieced together using various pieces of other rats or vat grown pieces.
>>78557615Oh yeah, i remember that.Fuck that guy.
I take it that posting in these threads at this time of day is worse because the resident turbo spergs turns up and don't leave until they go to sleep?
>>78557382Damn... elves btfo...
>>78557673That's late euro hours for you.
You know what's bullshit?Flamers of Tzeentch can Fly in AoS, but for some reason can't in WarcryAnd you can't even explain it by them "not actually flying but leaping" because Squigs can "Fly" in both AoS AND Warcry, despite not actually being capable of Flight
>>78557832Warcry has S/T, I guess one game can't have everything.
I really like Liberator asthetics.
>>78557382They get the High Priest's salvation spread all over their faces.
>>78557878It just seems like a mistake to me, considering, i'm fairly certain, that no other Fly-capable unit in AoS loses its Fly-capability in Warcry.
>>78557936What else can you expect for a game made by J*rvis.
Finished my first armyFar from a good one, but so far it's been a lot of fun to unload cannon barrages and hope to highroll D6 rolls on TTS while practicing before getting to play it IRL
>>78557832The flying rule in AoS is mostly on a bunch of things that don't take off into the air just for the sake of keeping it simple.
>>78558044Like Squigs that are just hopping around (kind of like Flamers that are described as jumping and hopping around), but Squigs CAN Fly in Warcry but Flamers CAN'TThat's my issue. The lack of consistency.
>>78558037Man I've been thinking about playing on TTS but I dont know where I'd start as someone who is completely new to the game rules/system
>>78558037hell, if you have fun its a good investment of time
>>78558075Sounds like shits weren't given.
>>78558095Once you get someone else who knows the rules it's pretty simple, just get models for your faction from the map with stuff from that faction, a map to play on (i use mostly Deinok AoS 2021) and you can just playI don't enjoy using it too much as it's kinda clunky but it's great for trying out armies/lists before you get the real thing
>>78554535Yeah. >Squat resin Warpriests Okay, that's fair I guess but surely they'll keep the warscroll given the plastic heroes from the War Altar kit? >Squat the War Altar too >Keep the Hurricanum which shares half the sprues with the War Altar Oh... Well, at-least we have the Excelsior Warpriest. Looks, he's even in Soulbou->Squatted It's such a shame. They are my favourite army concept right now after I exhausted Ironjawz and Skaven. Like, there's so much ripe potential for these religious zealots preaching about the end of the world given their ancient analogues were 100% right and AoS itself survived the initial apocalyptic scenario.
Do I blow my load and go crazy buying a battleforce, or eBay lot or lots of boxes, or should I practice patience and only get a box of a unit or hero?
anyone think belakor is gonna get a rules facelift/points increase when his new model comes out? His rules are pretty good as is.
>>78558233Practice patience. Walk not the path of the CONSOOMER, lest you fall into a spiral of despair.
>>78558233one box at a time unless you really have a deadline for wanting to play or a competition to enter.
>>78558233Well, it's probably not a saving for one. I would buy whatever fits your pace and interest. If you're new then just a hero and a unit or an sc or something. You may not even like the process of building if you're new.
>>78558259Most likely his special rules will stay the same, but he'll get more wounds and probably an improved sword.
>>78558216I dont like how AoS totally reversed the classic dynamic that both 40k and WFB shared of established civilization trying to endure its internal and external threats as the apocalypse looms in the distance. Instead AoS is about the expansion of civilization which is a very different dynamic
>>78558233Without additional details it's very hard to answer this as it entirely depends at what point you are at in your hobby careerStarting out from 0? Get a troop box (no heroes) and start with that, if you enjoy painting it get a Start Collecting and expand from thereAlready playing since a while? See if you actually need stuff from the battleforce and get it, otherwise Ebay lots are good albeit riskyDon't assume blindly that Battleforces are good because while some are great and basically armies in a box (Ogor one for example) others like the Kharadron and Tzeench one are meh
Finished my Warlock Engineer. How should I name him?
>there was a huge spike in lumineth birth rates when the stormcast first landedI thought that WE were the chads lumibros...
>>78558037actually doesnt look that bad but the colors seem really dark, and it almost looks like everything is glossy.what shade are you using?
>>78558193>ClunkyI tried playing Mordheim and it really is. Couldnt even see the same terrain as the DM at one point
>>78558289>>78558352>>78558283New here. I figured it was better to go the hero/1 box route and I think that's the route I'll go. No deadline or competition or any time constraint whatsoever, except for possibly wanting to place this order tonight. Thanks anons
>>78558370Fug I need to repaint my warlock, I think he was one of the first I did and could use a total facelift.Try one of the skaven name generators or use the old RPG book as reference, and bash the two together like I did to get mine
>>78558233Say you’ll do only one, but end up doing 2 or more because you forgot about that eBay throwaway bid
>>7855833240k yes, but WHFB was never about the Empire vs everyone else trying to survive. It was much closer to what AoS is now, just different powers and the relationships between them.
Anyone know a good third party source of wooden barrels? Need lots
>>78558370Name him Drill-That-Hole-Hole
>>78558515you can probably find some cheap ones on shapeways or other 3d printing services
>>78558515Greenstuff world has some, they'd probably be a easy recast with blue stuff and miliput
>>78558579please tell me you are incorporating that ship somehow whether it be terrain or basing.
>>78558332Yeah, I thought that too but AoS is all over the place at the same time. I thought the initial optimism really belied the severity of the setting, because it's still basically a post-apocalyptic world almost entirely the dominion of chaos and at it's core antithetical to civilised life. You just need to think about how SCE undermine that classic struggle of mortal man, corruptible men, against immortal, innumerable chaos by essentially duplicated the concepts of chaos' horror so the good guys aren't left out of feeling epic. >>78558514Nah, WHFB was firmly grounded in this threat from the North. The Siege of Praag, End Times, etc. I don't know, I'm barely informed about WHFB but this threat of overwhelming chaos was a given. Skaven crept through every city's sewers, beastmen prowled the woods, cults ushered fools into their secret meeting places, etc. AoS just isn't interested in that kind of thing and you need only read the Gotrek stuff to note the comparison in tone.
>>78558610Again, that was never the focus of the narrative. It always pitched a couple of factions in iconic rivalries. Wood elves vs beastmen, empire vs orcs or chaos, high elves vs dark elves and so on, just like AoS. It never had the focus on the Empire vs threats everywhere as 40k has with the Imperium.
>>78558216They got rid of the Witch Hunter too, maybe Order of Azyr is gonna be a realease that updates all that stuff.
>>78558610>You just need to think about how SCE undermine that classic struggle of mortal manNo they don’t they emphasize it you can have both >AoS just isn't interested in that kind of thing and you need only read the Gotrek stuff to note the comparison in tone.What? All of that stuff still happens read Silver Shard or City of Secrets why would you take one series from the perspective of a millennia old Demi god not even originally from the setting as a baseline
>>78558710I very much doubt they'll make a separate army for them instead of just adding them to CoS.
>>78558710The daddy witch hunter with the manbun is way to busy looking.
>>78558710Yeah warrior priests are definitely on the way after those witch hunters. I hope they don't make one of them a bald woman, they can save the religious women for sisters of sigmar.
>>78558510I think I'm going to stay off eBay for the start of all this. Once I've decided on a faction (down to 3 right now) I'll buy a hero or box of a unit at the LGS and then maybe after I get through that box/hero then I might introduce eBay. The jew in me is really tempted to scour eBay, but I will resist
>>78558403the gloss is cause of the varnish i put after everything was doneprobably gonna have to drybrush over it to make it less 'shiny'
>>78558733I mean Soulblight is coming out as its own thing from LoN, but I'd be fine if they just revamped them and made them a new part of CoS.>>78558742I think he looks fine imo, he conveys the classic Witch Hunter style and I think thats important. They sure are going heavy with the buckles but I'm okay with it.
>>78556992dental surgery>>78557022planning on it
>>78558773Anon Soulblight is jut LoN with a different name, not a splinter with three heroes.
>>78558759It depends what battleforce anon
>>78558750I hope so, I love Warrior Priests/Excelsiors. Sisters of Sigmar returning with them would be primo, maybe the lady from Cursed City is something similar.
Belameme post on Facebook today, maybe preorder announcement Sunday?
>>78558590ty it took forever to trade in my last army for this stuff.>>78558597it's my roommate's lol I have a normal paypig terrain ship but i thought it would be cute in the photo
>>78558811I know, I'm saying Order of Azyr could be something similar to that, essentially replacing a big chunk of CoS and making it its own faction like it should be.
>>78558811We dont really know yet what Soulblight is besides the fact it has skeletons, zombies and vampires.We assume its just a LoN rebranding but it might be more (or less)
>>78558579It was probably a bit dumb to buy the battletome though as a new one is pretty close.
>>78558828Probably. There was a rumor from like over a month back that nailed the dates for Teclis, Cursed City, and said Belakor on the 17th, I'm not seeing any reason to disbelieve at this point.
>>7855890617th makes sense, so Soulblight in may.
>>78558906They do need to pump out books to reach 3.0 in the summer. Probably at least one remaining unannounced book
>>78558579Cool, are you the color shift turtle anon?
>>78558865We know it has all the zombies, skeletons, necromancers, dire wolves, bats, vargheists, vampires and zombie dragons. Which is just LoN minus the ghosts.
>reject the druggy elfs, teclis's mistake of modernity >return to tradition, return to the ocean
>>78558813I've looked at the Kharadron Overlords and they aren't very appealing to me - transporting those big ass ships looks fucking awful - so I'm counting out battleforces as that's the only one in stock
>>78558992>We know it has all the zombies, skeletons, necromancers, dire wolves, bats, vargheists, vampires and zombie dragons. Which is just LoN minus the ghosts.We actually don't know any of this and if you mean the recent pictures GW posted for the Teclis book then sorry to say but GW is known for using old photos if the army is yet to be released.
>>78559017Yeah the KO is a bad one and its better to buy their SC!'s. Tell me what armies you are considering.
>>78559027I mean... Aren't all of those on the SBGL artwork?
>>78559027Anon all I've said has been either explicitely confirmed or is in the cover of the book. I don't know what you thing gravelords is, but it's just an updated LoN.
>>78559027There's literally a vampire standing among skeletons, dire wolf, flying zombie dragons, and flying bats on the soulblight tome cover
>>78559047Which one? DId I miss one? You dont mean the tome artwork dont you? It only has what I mentioned previously plus the new dragon and a single dog but no vargheists, mortis engines, grave guard, spirit hosts, morghast etc etc
>>78559017the ships arent too bad to transport if you can make the ship detachable from the flying pegs. theres a couple guys who make special magnetized flying pegs just for that purpose, makes em a lot easier to transportthat said, the KO SC boxes are a better deal, and you can get 2 KO SC boxes for the same cost as 1 battleforce. ultimately it comes down to weather you want a frigate vs 2 units of thunderers. the frigate isnt bad, but thunderers are one of the big staple units of the army
>>78558890people keep saying this but there's no proof other than a random warband. and even if so i think it's a nice tome.>>78558977yessir. I got more, gonna try some weird mettalics on the eels and another colourshift on The Akhelian king mount's scales
>>78559075>spirit hostsAren't they Nighthaunt?>MorghastI feel like they're gonna be gone from SGBL and will be only in OBR
>>78559075The only things that are unconfirmed is the stuff that's in Nighthaunt or OBR, but that doesn't mean they can't be, just look at all the tzaangor stuff. In any case, LoN is not gonna stay around, Gravelords is its replacement.
>>78559070>>78559072All I'm saying is that we dont really know what Soulblight is going to be because there was no mention yet of what units stay and which go.All we know is Vampires, Skeletons, Zombies.We dont even know if it will have Fell Bats or Bat Swarms. Cursed City has all units sharing the same points after all so It cant be an indication what you'll get. The Vampire Lord on a Zombie Dragon thats currently available is also an unknown as the artwork shows something different. We dont even know if the Mortarchs will stay the way they are since they all got their cat mounts killed off.Its most likely a LoN rebranding and update but we have no confirmations on anything besides "its a vampire faction"
>>78559043Deciding between Idoneth, Ossiarch bonereapers, Nurgle and maybe the Sylvaneth. >>78559113 Kharadron do look like they can be painted in quite cool schemes so I might actually not count them out. I completely shit the bed on remembering about magnets/removable bases.
>>78559184Yeah anon I'm sure they'l squat the mortarchs and all the other units for no reason.
>>78559184I admit I did fuck up with the Fell Bats but not Bat Swarms. There was no confirmation about what stays and what goes. If there was please direct me to it.
>>78559256Where did I say they will squat mortarchs?
>>78559230>the last thing a lumineth sees when he walks in on his wife, satisfied for the first time in her life
>>78559257>>78559184This anon is the type of guy who can't tell superman and clark kent the same dude because of some glasses
>>78558773>I think he looks fine imo, he conveys the classic Witch Hunter style and I think thats important. They sure are going heavy with the buckles but I'm okay with it. I think it's the sword on the back that I don't like and his head.
>>78559300Now to be fair he also changed his posture and it was very convincing
>>78559184They will not get rid of the zombie dragon kit because Flesh Eater Courts is using it.
>>78559244>Ossiarch BonereapersGo with this if you want good support for you army and a easy to paint well with an option to paint them great. Also a strong army with a decent Start Collecting available currently.A+ tier army currently.>IdonethGo with this if you want a fast mobile force but might not get model support besides a single warband. S tier army currently but a new book is on the horizont and because of that everything might change.>KOGo with this if you want to play 40k in AoS>Nurgle, SylvanethSylvaneth is trash and Nurgle is forgotten.
>>78559330to be fair they dont need to get rid of it completely to squat that kit for SBGL
>>78559344>tl;drgo for Bonereapers if you want safe, go with Idoneth if you love the models and dont care about anything else.
>>78559364I don't see it happening since GW can wait decades to update old minis if they got plastic kits.
>>78559364Would be weird to Squat a unit that's literally on the cover
>>78559400That's not the same dragon though, even the rider is different.
>The legion grows
>>78559344>Ossiarch Start Collecting!Is this the cavalry box or has a SC! been confirmed? I only really like a couple models from the KO, Nurgle, and Sylvaneth so I'm ruling all them out. Hardest part is now Ossiarch and Idoneth both have amazing models. Might just have to get a box from each faction and paint them up if I can't chose a clear favourite
>>78559244Was there ever any doubt?
>>78559075Yeah I'm also very curious about all that extra shit.Here's a list of all the LoN stuff on warscroll builder:>Confirmed updated:- Blood Knights- Fell Bats- Skeleton Warriors- Vampire Lord- Wight King on Skeletal Steed- Zombies>Speculated to be updated via Cover Art:- Dire Wolves- Vampire Lord on Zombie Dragon>Unknown:- Bat Swarms (Cursed City didn't even have warscrolls for their version)- Black Knights- Corpse Cart (cursed city zombies mentioned corpse cart but this is just the old warscroll)- Grave Guard- Morghast- Vargheists- Arkhan - Bloodseeker Palanquin- Coven Throne - Mannfred- Nagash - Necromancer- Neferata- Prince Vhordrai- Wight King with Baleful Tomb Blade- Wight King with Black Axe- Mortis Engine- TerrorgheistI just assumed all the ghost stuff is gone.Looking at the list the main "old" kits not getting replaced are Black Knights, Grave Guard, Coven Throne box and Corpse Cart.
>>78559454So like I know one has a culture but they are motivated by nagashs singular goal to kill everything and own all the dead. Let's say he hypothetically succeeds. Now what? No more souls are born to add to the dead. Do their cultures still keep going or does nagash just have everyone stand still until the heat death of the mortal realms occurs
>>78559434SC! is coming next year probably. I'm talking about the cavalry box. It's a good one if you want OBR.The Idoneth one is fine but eels > sharks still but they do have a SC!, then again Namarti are pretty bad also.Make your decision based on what models you like and if it looks like your chosen faction will get support.
>>78559478I'm pretty sure nagash is happy with people living and doing whatever as long as they don't take his souls or mess with shyish. The other factions love doing both.
>>78559456>- Bat Swarms (Cursed City didn't even have warscrolls for their version)seems like an easy proxy model,id honestly be suprised if they kept the old models around
>>78559456At least one anon gets what I was saying.
>>78554451The legions growth has slowed down...
>>78559490He seems to flip flop on that depending on the book. Like he punishes doctors by turning them into dreadscythe harridans for keeping people alive. I like nagash as the cartoonishly evil villain he is but I don't think his goals and motivations really hold up if you try to take a deep look at them
>>78559502I hate how fat the dragon is
>>78559533nagash is a demented old man according to arkhan
>>78559539It's a horse
>>78559539I hate the twin tails, I don't know why I just can't stand when that design choice is used on a model and unlike the ugly skull pimples it's harder to green stuff out
>>78559406It's similar enough and also low res af.
>>78559573It's obviously a fucking squirrel
>>78554905You forgot LoA again anon
>>78559539It has been stuffed full with skulls. So it's just big boned injected.
>>78559599Loa is like the axolotl, totally extinct in their natural habitat and only kept alive by third party breeders
>>78559590>It's similar enoughThe head is completely different and the rider looks more like >>78559502 than the old one.
>>78559624>breederswhere do I sign up to be a chaos dwarf breeder?
>>78555306Wrong kind of dwarf
>>78559539the blood dragon is just an architect
>>78559626Could be. Could not be. If we had a better look at it I might be inclined to agree with you.
>>78559487I love the Mortek Guard just a bit more than namartis, so I think I'm going Ossiarchs
>>78559692Strong bones. Embrace calcium.
>>78559417Did you settle on a paint scheme yet?
Army for this feel?Dispossessed Rangers when?
If they actually did do an AoS version of Chaos Dwarfs, what would they call them?Legion of Azhgor was meant to represent one very specific group of Chaos Dwarfs and would likely not carry over to a new plastic line.
>>78559244ossiarch are probably the most overall well rounded army to collect right now, they are also in a great spot with rules. the army is both strong and flexible. they can play a slow marching heavy tanking phalanx supported by artillery, a grindy attrition machine with troops that explode when they die and stand right back up, an ultra fast charging all cavalry and flying monster army where the whole army runs and charges, and they've got some solid heroes.i would say their only downsides are because of their eliteness it's hard to always fit everything you want in a list, and they are pretty reliant on their 3 named characters (arkhan, katakross, and nagash) to really shine. nurgle is looking better with the updates but still a slog to play. slow without a bell, but can reach decent speeds with the right build, everything is tough and expensive, they lack ranged options entirely and their casting is garbage, their hitting power is also on the weak side, so they will pretty much just sit on objectives tanking all game.idoneth deepkin are a blast to play, fast, hard hitting, good melee and decent ranged on the sharks and turtles, good options and everything is now usable except the reavers who still kind of suck. but if the fish aesthetic is not for you, skip em. if you like fish, go for it, rewarding army to play and fairly meta proof. sylvaneth are in a REALLY bad spot. avoid except as an absolute labor of love for the models. tree dependency makes them expensive to collect too, half the cost of the army will be terrain.KO are fast, redeploying, shooty skirmish alpha army that wants to skirt the fight and cripple the enemy early before they can hit back. lots of tricks and traps, like a mix of 40k's dark eldar/edlar, GSC, and tau, a wholly unique experience in AOS, they play like no other army. probably one of the more difficult armies to play well though. high skill ceiling
>>78559741Did you read the Strong Bones short story, Anon?
>>78559821Hordes of Hashut
>>78559841Yeah though it was more of a Ogor story than a OBR one.
>>78559821I think furnace kings have been referenced as the actual name. I know chorfs show up in a couple battle tomes, mega gargants come to mind
>>78559798Wildwood Rangers and Shadow Warriors with headswaps. SCE have "rangers" too.
>>78559786Yes i did, gold trim, metal plates, red cloth/braids, brown leather and orange glowing runes. Still going to keep one in teal though, just because.
>>78559896That's a terrible name. It sounds like a boiler repair service.
>>78559798If dwarfs ever get a tome, rangers are the first thing they should get after artillery.
So if the S/T and charge reaction rumours end up being true, would you still play the game?
>>78559906Elves are gay as fuck and SC are space marines
>>78559945Maybe Furnace Tyrants?
>>78559956what exactly do rangers bring to the table that they dont currently have?
>>78559945>furnace kings>That's a terrible name. It sounds like a boiler repair service.my fucking sides
>>78559945They'll be Hashuti Furnacekings if we're following proper AoS naming conventions
>>78559983Mobility. Dwarfs are and were the slow army meme. It's even worse now that they don't have artillery to actually decimate the enemy before they eventually get charged. With ranged support and fast and mobile infantry they become a lot more complete.
>>78559975probably but it will be worse off for it. s/t just serves to slow the game down, and can also create some really hard skew where certain lists just cant tackle certain foes if they didnt bring a specific solution. it also means when i'm making attack rolls, instead of looking at my sheet and seeing what i need to roll, i now need to look at my sheet, see my strength, then ask my opponent what their toughness is, then work out the math on the S/T chart before getting the number i need to roll. it adds like 3 steps of back and forth to the rolling process every time you make an attack, slowing the game down tremendously and also being a barrier to newer players, who have a whole chart of interactions to trip them up. veteran players might not mind because they have memorized every units strength and toughness, but for anyone else its entire steps of compare and contrast and find the total for every unit you want to make an attack with.it was a bad system, and fixed attack and wound rolls, while slightly less thematic/realistic, streamlined gameplay quite a bit and the game was better for having them
>>78560027just run living cities? you can outflank with irondrakes, and for a CP they can move after they shoot. thats about as mobile as rangers ever were as far as i recall
>d6 healing prayer Damn, only hero worth taking from Cursed City?
>>78559821Varanweld Armoury, opposite the Ironweld Arsenal.
Fantasy = MasculineSigshit = FeminineAny questions?
>>78559838I appreciate the write up a lot. I love the fish vibe of Indoneth which is what's making this decision so hard. I think I will just go with both and slowly build them up. I'm not in any rush to get an army going so I'll grab a Mortek Guard box and maybe the Broken Realms Idoneth box afterwards.
>>78560104maybe the KO one. his ability to reel in targets from the deck of a ship could be interesting. he's otherwise pretty terrible, but pulling enemies out of position can be a pretty big deal
>>78560091We are talking about dwarfs being out of CoS and in their own book. Also, a gamey ability that doesn't fit the point of irondrakes from a city with a theme opposite of what dwarfs do isn't exactly a satisfactory situation.
>>78559993The ae is for aelves only.
>>78560123How long since you last took your medication?
Guys we're on page 10
>>78559645Is it thought?Fyreslayers are obsessed with gold and dwarves in general are associated with jews, so it follows pretty naturally that GW will reintroduce chorfs by way of the Fyreslayers.
>>78560156Make a new thread then, dummy.
>>78560104Dwarf is memey since you can tie up a big monster for one turn which can swing the game. Like archaon
>>78560073I'm sorry anon but I can't really take seriously anyone that thinks this is a barrier of entry to new players. If you can't work this out I'm not sure you can handle AoS as it is right now, with a million special rules and modifiers to keep in mind.
>>78560156sigmarbros...is it over?
>>78559993Following the chaos namescheme we have:Blades of KhorneDisciples of TzeentchHedonites of SlaaneshMaggotkin of Nurgleso if they come back it is safe to assume that the army name would be ___ of Hashut
>>78560206Diggers of Hashut
>>78560197if you dont see the difference between a single step of just looking at a number and seeing what you need to roll VS having to look and your number, then ask the opponent their number, then do some quick division every time you want to roll an attack, then you arent making an honest argumentand you think S/T is going to make all those modifier suddenly go away? or like 40k isnt also full of a million modifiers? all of its weapon profiles have strength modifers build in, so you dont just look at the units strength for melee, you now also need to look at the units strength + the weapons strength.this is the problem with the S/T argument, it's always made by bad faith actors
>>78560201It's all ogre now.
>>78559821What if they will be called The Growing Legion of Hashut
>>78560123Spent a lot of time coming up with that one, huh?
>>78556315Overcompensation for the busted first attempt. Plus all the WAACfags will have shilled out for them by that point. Shame about people who just genuinely like Slaanesh getting caught in the crossfire.
>>78559821Kragnos' lil homies
>>78560291i think it had a bunch more rules that got cut at the last minute. compare dread pageant members with their counterpart units and spot all the missing rules or tuned down attack profiles
>>78560320>he thinks Kragnos is Chaos Dwarfs
>>78560259The presence of a dynamic roll would reduce the amount of special rules yes. If the objective is making the combat sequence as streamlined and as quick as possible, then fixed rolls aren't the solution. Warcry's version of S/T works much better, because there's only one roll to attack and no save roll. Instead, what were saves (mainly armours and shields and stuff) instead increase Toughness, while what was rend now increases Strength. That way you have a simpler system with more granularity, that isn't locked to just 6 fixed values and that has less rolls that don't need to switch between players and the same amount of looking at the opponent's stats as current AoS.
>>78560361Well everyone else thinks a centaur with a spikey shield and mace is a fucking elf so it's just as likely.
Kragnos' people are the Silent People, who are gone.
>>78560513I know that Kragnos has 6 limbs, but that doesn't make him an insect.
>>78560513>bug race>Centaur dude
>>78560556He's a bugtaur.
>>78560537His horns look insectoid
>>78560602Like scarabs....Does Kragnos serve?
>>78560602No they don't.They look chaos'y
>>78560372>The presence of a dynamic roll would reduce the amount of special ruleshow?
>>78560372Yeah, S/T in Warcry is a much more elegant, fun and just outright better way to do things than AoS ToHit/ToWound/ToSave/FNP rolls
