Will 2022 be the year of Fyre KINO?
>>82982918You've already seen everything 22 will release for fyreslayers...
I suck at painting
>>82982952Technically we haven't seen the tome yet
>>82982918Recent art seems to be more high effort than usual.
>>82982997But the tome won't make or denied to be anything kino.
>>82983040It might make more builds and units viable, leading to more diverse lists with more things like auric hearthguard and magmadroths
>>82983052Builds and viable units doesn't make a faction kino.
>>82983061If you don't like what's already there nothing's gonna change your mind anyway, dumb 'keyknow' fag
>>82982992Do you want to get better
>>82983023Looks like that one guy finally has time to finish backgrounds
>>82983023Need more art of all the factions except SCE
Starting on feathers
>>82983204>third party models
>>82983224bruh this is an isle of blood high elf
>>82983224That's a WFB mini you filthy casual
>>82983224You should leave.
>>82983204I was considering doing a wood elves CoS army and just remembered I have this guy lying around somewhere. Should make a decent proxy for the freeguild general.
>>82983300That's the plan.
>>82983300hes a classic model so good call
My fiance plays Slaanesh, and I'm gitz. I'm going to get my ass handed to me in 1 on 1 against them right?
>>82983382Both of those aren't great, so you might have a chance
>>82983224Lmao at all the fags not getting your joke
>>82983454Shhh, they'll just get mad and post the "just pretending to be retarded" picture like it excuses their gullibility.
>>82983382They both suck equally
>>82983382>My fiance plays SlaaneshShould we tell him?
>>82983500That they are based as fuck and have the most kino mortal models? Yes, yes we should.
>>82983500My fiancee plays beastmen....But she likes nighthaunt too so I guess its fine.
>>82983679So she likes bestiality and ntr? Not bad.
>>82983531>most kino mortal modelsmeh not really, they don't conform to any particular classic fantasy aesthetic. I look at them and they're technically well done but they evoke no feelings in me whatsoever, which makes them anything but kino. I'd go as far as to say they lack sovl.
>>82983679>My fiancee plays beastmenlol white women
>>82983382Slaanesh are bad but from what I've heard gitz are even worse, sounds like a fun retardfight
>>82983739you're white idiot.
>>82983722Some anons here just have a thing for half naked bald menI try not to judge, but...
>>82983722Blissbarbs, shardspeaker and Glutos have a very strong fantasy arab theme
Coolest daemons coming through
>>82983829Actual worst daemons
>>82983827if that's your thing I guess, I didn't grow up watching sinbad or whatever every day.
>>82983829>coolest daemons>not made of ice
Will you be preordering the Fury of the Deep box tomorrow?
>>82983856Please, no one is.
>>82983856It comes out tomorrow?!
>>82983856Already done it. Getting it for a 100 euro and splitting with a buddy, so feels like good value.
>>82983940>Already done it.But it goes up for pre-order tomorrow?
>>82983885Yikes bro. Those are so shit GW had to make them webstore exclusives before they were even a year old
>>82983764Yes but I don't fuck dogs
>>82983856No I'm still painting my Slaanesh. I like how IDK look so I might pick some up one day, but definitely not now.
>>82983856No, the next purchase I'll make is either more 3d prints for my Nurgle army, or obr.
>>82983984Buddy owns a lgs, he says usually they get to order the stuff when the sunday preview goes off, so they already ordered a few boxes.
I seriously hope their vanguard box won't just be pic rel with an extra unit or twoThey'll probably squat the daemon box on top of it as well
>>82982918they aren't getting anything else
>>82983126>Looks like that one guy finally has time to finish backgroundsObjection!
>>82984202That's a foreground
>>82984209>That's a foreground
>>82984171They have to add 5 blood warriors anyway
>>82984216>linking to the postFake 'jakker
>>82983067I don't have that much of a negative opinion about the old models but I definitly disagree.The new model for example is imho pretty good and way better as the "old" sculps but it's the only model they'll get and it only improves the whole army by a little bit.
>>82984235Lol it pales in comparison to the old heroes. Good hero sculpts were the one thing Fyreslayers never lacked and this new one looks like it's made by a completely different dude in a more cartoony style.
My local game store still has the broken realms boxes in stock. Are the slaves to darkness (3x chariot) and Idoneth (2x allopex and akhelian king) worth picking up?
>>82984245I agree to some extent, but the new priest's design in better than most of the old heroes.Not that anon though.
>>82984269>Are the slaves to darkness (3x chariot) lol no, who wants or needs that many?>and Idoneth (2x allopex and akhelian king) worth picking up?Absolutely
>this died for monopose shit
>>82984288>same-y warriors all in the same pose made for rank&file>same-y knights looking like they can barely move>garbage chariotTruly, we lost a lot when they moved to dynamic warrior sculpts, powerful-looking knights and a lord riding a nasty chaos beast in the new box.
>>82984288>MonoposeTo be fair it's only a problem with horde units, where you can find yourself with 3 or more of the same dude.Otherwise just need a few head/shield swap to make them look far less monopose than the actual multikit, which they all look very similar and static.The only really shitty thing about the new ones is that they lack the musician and standardbearer, I'll give you that.
>>82984423>great savings on a whole load of kits you want multiples of>squatted so you can buy a single monopose box you'll never want more of, have zero options and look out of place>retards approve because they're flashier
>>82984423But Anon, every single soldier looking identical is soul and makes for a great painting experience. Except when Fyrslayer do it, cause they couldn't releas Vulkites in time tor ET and didn't redesign them hard enough
>>82984288Aren't all of those models still being sold, though?
>>82984444Fyreslayer's issue isn't that they look samey, but that they look ridiculous. Unbelievable, considering how kino WHF slayers were. Truly the lack of pants makes a huge difference, and the fact that they're mostly T-posing.
>>82984444Quads of truth.
>>82984482>Fyreslayer's issue isn't that they look sameyNo, that's definitely a major issue.
>>82984440>great savingsWow, super, instead of one set of overpriced plastic I can buy another for slightly less but still a lot. >single monopose box you'll never want more ofOutside of *maybe* the lord there's no reason not to use the kits multiple times. Twist the heads by a bit and reposition an arm and you've got enough difference.>retards approve because they're flashierWell, if liking better-looking models with vastly superior sculpts makes me a retard then guilty as charged, I guess.
I hope they put up a WD preview today. I'd like to know if there's a realmscape feature this time around.
>>82982918Can they start adding women as wizards or something
>>82984501Maybe I'll see it when they look less ridiculous
>>82985068I wonder where his HQ of Mordikar is. It's mentioned in Broken Realms but it's never said where it's located.
>>82985086Wasn't it in Ulgu> Or am I just mixing in the memes of him being Malarion?
>>82985113It's never specified. It could be in Ulgu, it could be in some corner of the Realm of Chaos, it could be in Teclis' basement.
An instant classic.
>>82984288AND YOU CAN HAVE IT ALLMY EMPIRE OF DUST
Festus hanging out with his crew
>>82985316Poor jannie just can't catch a break.
>>82983856I intend to start idoneth, so I'll get two halves while selling the fyreslayer halves to someone else.
>>82984427I wouldn’t worry too much about what Poorfag has to say.
>>82985205>barely draw anything>copy paste the middle two panels anywaywow this is some grade A talent...
>>82985581>tfw no more Ossiarch transbonesShame
Will OBR players finally stop complaining now?
>>82984216i'm going to smash your head into paste faggot
>see cool paintjob>I want to try that on my nighthaunt>the guy didn't put up a tutorialdamnBest guesses on the cloth?
>>82985827Looks like ringwraiths from lotr
>>82985827Not sure about the colours exactly, but they just blended from a dark teal/turqoise at the top to a lighter one at the bottom and edge highlighted with a bright teal.
>>82985848The nazgul look like ringwraiths?
>>82985869Guess I'll just have to up my blending game
>>82985827same colours as hexwraith robes, or generic dark eldar armour.
>>82983856no i have enough hearthguard and vulkites
>>82986045>>82986089Starting to like this plan a lot.The top robe black, then incubi darkness blended into sybarite green for the under robe.
>>82986077what a shit underworlds kit that is. its a literal downgrade from the current pirate maneater.they easily could have done> firebelly, and some gnoblars that have caught alight "accidently"> butcher, a mawpot, and 2 chefs helper gnoblars> a couple of gorgers ( especially considering its set in Ulgu)
> this is the closest we got to an FEC villain in the cursed city box
>>82986240Wtf is this?
>>82986263Might be some Blood Bowl thing from their camp horror team.
>>82986240based imp with his box of stolen panties
Is UW the only game that died from too much support?
>>82986551That's one way to put it.Here's an idea. Don't try to be MtG with your fun little casual game.
>>82984482Chosen Axes look really good. The design isn't the problem.
>>82986551We'll need to wait and see what happens to 40k with the constant deluge of codexes and campaign books and the now twice yearly "season" updates.Its way too much for me at least. 1 ghb per year is enough.
>>82984482Fyreslayer's issue is secondaries dictating what makes a good faction as if they'd ever buy it in the first place. Meanwhile they keep telling people who actually like them and are happily collecting how shit their models are.
>>82985624>Army with 3" infantry, no deepstrike and no rerollable charges now given the option to give up one of their five chances to move for a d3 heal if they aren't already fighting>army fixed now guys stop complaining
It's now 2k22 and GW STILL haven't figured out that 1"range on 32mm models is a bad ideaNot just that but they made it even worse with coherencyDo we blame bin guy?
Thoughts on my squigg /tg/ ?
>>82986779Pretty good. Would look better on a square base.
>>82983996I'm a blight boy myself but thats a really great sculpt for Fiends and it keeps the uniboob trail design aesthetic without losing anything when they updated the mini. You don't have to play slaanesh to appreciate that GW hasn't completely rolled back the garters and tits aesthetic.
>>82986779Is it WIP ? If not, you need to spend more time on gums and nails. Otherwise, really coool
>>82986837>garters and tits aesthetic.Actually I take back what I said, there's clearly a different reason why you won't find these on shelves.
>>82984440Anon, both boxes have savings on Knights and Warriors, which is the reason you're buying them (also because you can't get them alone, but...) so it's pointless to say one saves more than the other. Until literally three weeks ago, for AoS' entire lifespan chariots were unplayable. You might want a couple sorcerers but by that logic you might want a couple Karkadrak lords too. The boxes are the same value for much better poses, unless you think two extra Chaos Warriors are somehow the dealbreaker.
>>82986905Why are Chariots good since 3 weeks?
>>82986905anon the me who cared about this argument left 5 hours ago
>>82983996A lot of Slaanesh stuff isn't in stores, and we all know why
>>82984440Oh yeah because you definitively want 2 of the same sorcerer and 2 fucking garbage chariots
>>82985953Those are not nazgul. Nazgul do not wear armor like that. Nazgul do not use weapons like those. I thought they looked like ringwraiths and they do. They arent actual models of them despite the file name, which I guess is what you're getting so autistic about. Stupid asshole.
>>82986968Remember that time they tried to hide the Infernal Enrapturess from the Wrath and Rupture box?It was hidden in the back of the group shots, was the only mini without a 3D view. Didn't even get its own 2D viewIt was some weird shit
>>82987055Yeah, that was pretty fucking stupid. If you stroll through a GW physical store today, I think they don't even have some whole armies. Like skavens for exemple
>>82986263>>82986440Cursed City death imp. Cute lad but he's a fucker in game.
Specialist Games are a meme, right? No one actually spends the time to paint up all this shit just to never have his friends join him for a game
>>82987196Anon, do you have friends?
>>82987196Just in case you were wanting a serious answer, I've read/heard that the game is boring beer & pretzels fluff. If you're a fan of modern board gaming, the mechanics for this are painfully dull. Most people purchase the game, punch all the chits, build all the miniatures, think about how great a value it is, then sell the game in a year when they realize they own yet another OOP game that's worth more than what they paid for it.
>>82987216Not +-4 local people who can all show up at the same time to play some children's boardgame, no.
>>82987247As opposed to the very adult and manly pastime of pushing the same miniatures around on a table?
>>82987265Only need 1(one) manchild opponent for that.
>>82987196I mean all of that stuff is perfectly playable in a SBGL or CoS army so it’s got they going for it. You have friends that meet up to play AoS but they wouldn’t be able to meet up to play a round or two of Cursed City?
>>82987247You can literally play it by yourself Anon. You don't need 4+ people.
>>82987573That's just sad
>>82986727There was never a problem with obr as an army. They're literally dead middle powerwise in aos 3 which is why the bitching is so annoying. If the bitching was at least focused on the shit scrolls it would be understandable but they just want their top tier faceroll lists from 2e back and are salty other people got new toys.
>>82987657nice projection faggot, we want deathriders to be good anda sub faction that focuses on an offensive playstyle instead of defensive to not be total dogshit, thats itmaybe archers too
>>82987584No I mean it literally has rules for 1 to like 6 people. You don't need tons. Even you should be able to wrangle up someone to play it with you.
>>82983856What's the verdict on the IDK vs Fyreslayer box?
>>82987847>haha yeah be sure to use sub assemblies bro>puts on a blob of superglue
>>82987898This. Not even kidding. It's the half of IDK no one likes and... Fyreslayers
>>82987657I literally picked up this army for 3e because I thought the sculpts were cool and I like tomb kings.The army is good against the other lower tier armies, the stats are skewed because there's literally (was) one guy playing Nagash in petrifex (who went 4-1 more often that not) and that was recently nerfed right around Christmas, so the impact of the change hasn't really been reflected yet. It's a 3-2 army at best and their mechanic is more frustrating than helpful. Mortek Guard probably need a nerf but in lieu of that like 20 other things need to be adjusted and compensated for it.I've already picked up another army that is actually in the middle band and the difference with the generic CA's is night and day.The only reason you see the disproportionate amount of "bitching" is because it's a fairly popular army and it does actually attract a lot of newer people. I really haven't seen much people advocate for a return to crawler spam, if anything they want archers and some new constructs.
>>82987930>and I like tomb kings.I fail to see the relevance
>>82987943If anything liking tomb kings should make you hate OBR.
>>82987943Most people are to dumb to realise OBR are just Morghast microfaction.
>>82987943>undead bonemen with constructs and an ancient middle eastern flavored civilization NTA but cmon now you’d have to be splitting hairs to not see why’d they’d remind someone of TK with no context and even with context they still have Tomb King flavor while being unique
>>82986919Repeatedly had their points dropped. I don't think they're good but they're much more playable
>>82988142Picrel captures the relationship perfectly.
>>829879303-2 is mid tier, the fact the army had a player doing well with a specific build shows the book has the potential to play against the high tiers, even if its limited. This points to the book being in a good spot powerwise, and while the army can't access the buffed generic commands it also mostly dodged the shitty changes 3e brought like new coherency. The real issue is just how busted the top tier stuff is right now.People also seem to have a very bad understanding of what the low tier is actually like right now. The stuff down there like gits, boc, and khorne just literally do nothing. Entire armies of low save bodies with no output and bad support combined with barely functioning allegiance abilities.When 3rd edition dropped the floor was ripped out from under the low tier armies. Those armies used to be able to play the objectives and try to grind out VP, but with 3e they just have no ability to score Battle tactics.
>>82987657It also kind of annoys me how much they beg for new units. They have the third most complete and well rounded roster of all the new AoS armies.
>>82987943Depends on if you're more attracted to the egyptian motif or the skeleton society who make war constructs, because OBR definitely fit the latter archetype.
>>82988188Show me what you have. I will tell you what you could improve on specifically.
>>82988285Yeh, Boner has a huge skeleton dick and tombcuck is dickless
Assembling some Judicators
>>82988330Subhuman intelligence detected
>>82988285Nostalgia aside, OBR are much cooler than TK. Tomb Kings was the most boring army in WHFB.
>>82988363Sphinx, ushabti, sepulchral stalkers and necropolis Knights are extremely kino. I know the model kind of sucks but I also like the giant, it looks just like the art and I have a soft spot for minis like that.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DwEPrNazV4tl;dw: Finecast model is badWhy is this allowed?
>>82988363Notice how you somehow rank it lower than a myriad other history inspired factions. Have you considered that you're just biased against certain cultures and aesthetics and the problem wasn't with TK but with you?
>>82988358Don't like being called out on your dicklessness anon?
>>82988363>*bretonnias in you're path*
>>82988329Here's the last thing I painted, this is like my third mini ever though so I know I can't expect miracles. I was kind of going for the WC3 team colors look where there's a bright color highlight on the units, but I think the blue is a bit garish here at least with the current skin tone so I might just try the standard red next. This is fleshshade over rakarth, but I also have a kislev I could add to make it more saturated.I think the main thing I need to work on is edge precision and figuring out how to apply the shades without so much pooling and splotching
>>82984245Yo, lil Namarti
Why is everyone talking about tomb kings like they don’t have rules for AoS?
>>82988869Because even now the legacy of WFB overshadows AoS.
>>82988869Because they can't be bothered to download them from gw's website and maybe somewhere someone wouldn't agree to play against legends units.
This will never be real armor. It has no articulation, it has countless exposed points, it makes no practical sense. It is a performative costume twisted by poor artists and inept designers into a crude mockery of metallurgy’s perfection.All the “validation” it gets is two-faced and half-hearted. Behind your back people mock it. Its makers are disgusted and ashamed of it, its “fans” laugh at it behind closed doors.Knights are utterly repulsed by it. Thousands of years of evolution have allowed knights to sniff out frauds with incredible efficiency. Even sets that “pass” look uncanny and unnatural to a knight. Its pauldrons are a dead giveaway. And even if it manages to get a drunk gentleman to impulse-buy, he’ll turn tail and refund the second he gets a glimpse of its fauldless cuirass.It will never be good. You wrench out a fake smile every single morning and tell yourself it’s going to be ok, but deep inside you feel the depression creeping up like a weed, ready to crush you under the unbearable weight of the shitty armor you are wearing.Eventually it’ll be too much to bear - you’ll try to bend over, fall, and be impaled by multiple weapons through the obvious gaps in your harness while you lay helpless. Your brothers-in-arms will find you, heartbroken but relieved that they no longer have to live with the unbearable shame and disappointment. They’ll bury you in full regalia, and every passerby for the rest of eternity will know a retard is buried there. Your body will decay and go back to the dust, and all that will remain of your legacy is a set of armor that is unmistakably shit.This is your fate. This is what you chose. There is no turning back.
>>82988953God, I hate Stormcast.
>>82986077>a parrot, a jew and an african this art is antisemetic and racist
>>82988921If someone is against legends units they aren’t worth playing against
>>82988984Everyone hates stormies
>>82989016I'm literally painting up Annhilator no 7. So therefore, you are wrong.
I hope order draconis anon is doing well, all their units are a part of cities of sigmar legends now so I hope he’s getting some games in
>>82988869Someone brought them up and /v/tranny went on a rant (pointing out he has no dick anymore must have triggered him). Then based /QA/non decimated him in a 1 sided soiduel
>>82989029>i am a 7x queerits okay to be gay anon, its 2022.
I wish 40k had kino like Soulblight and Slannesh Mortals model wise. I love the new CSM and Eldar and am putting together my combat patrol of Orks now but some of the AoS stuff just vibes with me more.
>>82989105Don't worry anon, my wife collects DoK too. i'll think of you while you seethe. And are still being wrong
>>82989110AoS is for chads only
Dominion was the best Age of Sigmar box set and I'm tired of acting like it wasn't.
i'd really like to work my 4th ironblaster into this list but i just cant see a way to do it without dropping something important or losing the tyrants artifact
>>82989139The best AoS box set was spire of dawn followed by carrion empire
>>82988634Questing Knights were kino. Free hand painting the cloth barding on cavalry was also kino.>>82988478Meh to all of that.
>>82988462Tortuga sent me a good one as a first order bonus. I have no idea why it happened, but it's not really allowed anymore in regards to quality and FW always would offer replacements.
>>82989149Meant to include this image.
>>8298911040k designers are more limited and it isn't even the setting's fault, it's GW not wanting radical changes to their flagship. AoS gus can just come to work and say "hay guys what if we do 180 on the orc design we had for decades?" and he will be allowed to do it. This just leads to 40k releases feeling less inspired cause the designers are on a lash
>>82989168thank god AoS designers are free to create cool unique armies
>>82989186I too, enjoy cherry picking pictures to support my "arguments"
>>82989148>spire of dawnDoes that even count as AoS?>Carrion EmpireFuck that is a good box, I like both the armies a lot as well but it doesn't give 2 1k point armies of new models. The problem with Stormcast is the problem with AoS as a whole, it replaced fantasy and the narrative still uses the same characters so it is always compared to Fantasy which isn't a legacy its going to live up to in most peoples eyes. It doesn't help that the OG stormcast were chunky as fuck and made Warcraft armor look reasonable. If they released Thunderstrike as the first iteration I don't think they would be quite as hated.
didn't they say they were gonna expand on and make the setting more grimdark this edition?where the fuck did that go?
>>82989186The rightmost one I could see being an actual runic font/language they use >>82989205They are probably talking about this editions Broken Realms, which supposedly ends with Azyr getting broken into by the Chaos Dwarfs
>>82989205>grimdarkGrimderp is over done as fuck
>>82989205Nothing's even happened yet.
>>82988836Kek, took me a second.
>>82989205They made a Nurgle model that isn't funny nor all that fat
>>82989145Swap Drogg for a stonehorn of some sort maybe?>>82989168On the one hand yeah, on the other beaat snaggaz were a 10/10 for me (except the hunta rig, that things dumb) and kruleboyz were a 7/10
for some reason freeguild/empire has been increasingly more appealing to meam I becoming a grog?
>>82989284I actually wanted to write about Snaggaz being a positive trend, since the weird squigs and other stuff felt like some fresh air. If they manage to continue this trand it would be good for 40k, but from what I saw the new Eldar update just looks like more of the same, so maybe orkz were just a 1-off
>>82989286I'm just guessing that your country either lacks or is NWO eradicating its history so you have to look into fantasy for human stuff
>>82988749I like the blue, I don't think the colors on this have any issue. In a mass of 60, the bright green eyes will stand out against the beige and blue nicely. Overall this is quite good.When you apply the shade, it pools which is good to an extent, but the pools behave like drops of water and will dry in sort of that coffee stain pattern. After the shades are applied, clean your brush off and get it mostly dry but not so much that it will "drink" your shades, and feather the edges of the pool outwards. Additionally, I think you do not need to be so restrained on the cloth; the places where it's bunched up and raised, highlight with a nice azure. I also glaze everything which relieves shades pooling but I think this is a clanrat (?) and therefore their charm will be in having 60 of them, so I would say any scheme these guys have will need to be done by layering.
>>82989089Take your meds
>>82989139That's a nice gif. I really like Feast of Bones, it had two strong and aesthetically pleasing NPC armies and the ogre half showcased a side of the Matribes you don't really see. Plus nice new sculpt, though not really needed for the Tyrant. I don't know if it was the best, but it had good value for armies that usually don't get attention.
>>82983204Just dug this kit up from the attic and damn it's tiny compared to the freeguild griffon. Might be a hard sell as a proxyLol at that absolute scale creep in WFB, and people pretend it's just a new thing
>>82989286Might just be fatigue with over the top stuff, returning to the baseline. Its always fun to root for an underdog
>>82989148>>82989204The skaven half is really something.
>>82989286Its called achieving proper manhood anon
>>82988836>yo lil Namarti I just teleported across the map and claimed that undefended objective you were holding. How do you like them apples
just had my first game of AOS today. It...didn't go well.
>>82989427Too many shoes in this picture.
>>82989445First games of any game rarely ever do
>>82989461the big fuckoff dragon guy killed half my army on his own.I didn't even really bunch up.
I am gay for the Putrid roidkings that show up in the art from time to time
>>82982918It is highly unlikely we are getting anything else, and I still haven't ruled out getting souped. Which I'd be stoked for, if we get the OWC treatment... not so much if we get the Ogor treatment.>>82983829Khorne please take your impotent manlet rage ever; Slaanesh = Malal/Malice > Nurgle = Tzeentch > Great Horned Rat >>>>>> Khorne.You will never be a real Greenskin.>>82983856Still painting my stormdrakes and OBR, I'll pick it up in a few months when it's 50% off, though.>>82984171It's that plus 10 bloodletters, calling it.>>82984288>monopose>doesn't include banner or musician options1. Why does GW do this shit? They did they same fucking thing with the gutrippaz in Dominion; they're selling literal plastic in mass produced sprues at astronomical profit margins, hundreds of USD a box in some cases, and they don't even include all the options, or correct unit sizes despite, for whatever reason, refusing to go to a PPM system. I truly believe it's to fuck with autism, and I also truly believe the only reason they bother with paying a few pages of lip service to open play as a "way to play" is to avoid getting sued for false advertising.2. Multiparts when? SEND FOR THE ELF!>>82984427GW apologists are truly the worst. No. No. No. You're wrong. *Hundreds of dollars for plastic* they can throw the hobbylets and secondaries a few ETB bones, but they should always be released alongside full kits.>>82989186I can almost forgive POOP because the kit also includes THE CHAD VULKITE>>82989148Dude, I love me some Abhorrent Arch-Regent too, but you are seriously deluded if you think anything will ever come close to topping Feast of Bones.
>>82989445>>82989459>>82989479>playing against stormiesthere's your problem
>>82989407The freeguild general is crammed onto a 120mm oval, which seems small. This is the right base size and the HE one fills it out pretty well. That said, the high elf is a random generic lord, the other griffon is Karl Franz and Deathclaw. I'm not saying scale creep isn't real, but the big one is supposed to be the faction centerpiece.
>>82989610>They did they same fucking thing with the gutrippaz in DominionThat really is a weird one. Every other kit in the box is the whole package but gutrippaz just got fuckedMy guess is that's it's purely to avoid the necron warrior thing where it's cheaper to just keep buying the cheapest 40k starter than buying the actual (same) kit>well I could get this starter for more gutrippaz but I want the command squad...
>>82989677Well it's also just a generic empire general but it's a fair enough pointHonestly the high elf griffon is just the right size. Not too big, not too small. Exactly what it needs to be.Also I might have to steal your rock idea, no way am I using the flying stand.
>>82989678Conquest did that too in the starter box. Is this the equivalent of day 1 dlc for ttgs? It's just normalized I guess
For that one anon who said my fluff Kharadron unit names were cool. I figure one complement is enough for an otherwise unsolicited /yourdudes/ fluff post.Roast me for infecting the skydorfs with leftism if you want.
>>82989762At least it's not Soul Wars
>>82989337Really? I think it looks like shit. I'm gonna be trying some other tones though, I also considered a drab purple since that'll go nicely with the green eyes.
>>82989678Its pretty easy to convert up a bannerman and musician if you've got bits from another army.Its probably pretty cheap to buy banner and instrument bits onlune too.
>>82989775Perish* in paragraph three. Cool concept.
>>82989794I've said this before too but theres a valid argument to say you shouldn't have to do that.
>>82989813Ah, thanks for the catch. I hate when I fuck that stuff up.
>>82989610Ppm would be pretty groovy, I like to buy random batches off models off eBay so I always tend to have a few floating off unplayed. Can only kitbash so many heroes.
>>82989836No problem, stunty lover. Gonna paint em red?
>>82989356Troon mad that he will never be keyed
>>82989876I considered it, but I think I'll paint them my favorite colors instead. There aren't any super-pinko-commie analogues in AoS that I know of, so I'm free to associate any colors I want with glorious egalitarianism.
>>82987228But it hasn't even been out a year
>>82983856Hell nahNot a fan of either army. Fyreslayers don't have enough unit variety for me to be interested (they literally feel like the same unit with a bunch of different warscrolls and a magmadroth mount), for IDK I'm just not into sea creatures.Really hoping the next box is for NH, if the tome is good I may actually pick that up.
>>82987247>>82987265>>82987269>>82987279>>82987573I know for a fact it would be a shitload easier to organise this for 4 people than a huge battle for 4.Takes less time, less rules so it's easier to do.Pretty hype for it.
>>82989775I just think it's nice to see people having fun with skydorfs.
Is it fine to store paints in a chilly basement as long as it doesn't go below freezing?
NAMARTI CHADS WE WIN>2” REACH>SWEEPING BLOWS ON 3 WOUNDS
>>82990110Happy for all 3 of you
>>82990110Big if true
>>82990110>Yeah, put me down for four more boxes of Fury of the Deep.
>New IDK hero is almost naked and has a +4 save.>Demigods covered from head to toes in armor also has +4 save.Why.
>>82990232>be almost naked>dodge well
>>82990110I was wondering why the new Warscroll Cards hadn't leaked yet, normally they'd have been all over the internet yesterday. Very sensible change that will make Thralls finally playable.
>>82990242Some big Shark buffs there, too:+2 Wounds, Harpoon launcher from 1d to d3Bloodthirsty Predator activation range from 3" to 6"
>>82990300Oh, also champion rules, that's new.
>>82990242>2 or more modelsShaerk battleline inc.
>>82989610The very fact that you included Malal into your tier list tells me you have shit taste.
>>82984427>Dude if you want great weapons or halberds get the old kitKys
Enough elves, show me some dwarves.
Very specific question, but did anyone get the Mortis Engine through Mortal Realms? If so, do you remember which sprue came with each issue. I'm only interested in picking up the Vampire chicks for a diorama, and the relevant issues are floating around on ebay.
>>82990242>No clause stopping a namarti unit from benefitting from multiple stancesLooks like there's a namarti build now, even if its meme-tier
>>82990242SHOW ME MORE.Dwarves and archers!
>>82988953we need a good middle for humans
>>82990432Thots can be found in issue 77, the other parts of the engine were 75 and 76 for the record. Must get around to building mine.
>>82990532Thank you, that is extremely helpful.
Is new nurgle actually fun or is it stand in mid field and be fat every game?
>>82990300>Harpoon launcher from 1d to d3Good because that's the bit I glued on
>>82990568It depends on what you find fun
>>82990300155 points each incoming.

>>82990245Libtard destroyed by facts and logic
>>82990242>+1Bravery>+1" Range>Sweeping Blows' +1Damage procs at W3 targetsHonestly not bad for Namarti Thralls.
assembling Deathrattle Skellies with their twig legs is fucking obnoxious
>inbox shillI bought this display case to hold some of my leader characters, but honestly it can hold alot of 25mm bases. Managed to squeeze in 36, but took some 6 out to include some heroes. I legit might buy a few more and use these to carry around my army. >unpaintedI lost motivation to paint after losing a few games particularly brutally. I'll regain it when we get a new book announced.
>>82990751>fucking obnoxiousThat's the theme of the army anon
>>82990751At least SOMETHING has broken on every single one I've built. You can clue them back again like nothing ever happened but stillI should probably invest in some fancy clippers
I want to start glueing my model but I can't bring myself to it. What do?
>>82990765meh if I were playing a gsg player I'd just tell them to use moon-biter and moon jumper for no point cost since GW doesn't give a shit about balance anway.
>>82991097That's my feel. I love the models, just can't be arsed to glue or paint any more. I've done many in my time but I just can't do it but feel like paying somebody to paint my shit is cheating.
>>82989781I'm still angry at that.
>>82990242>a shark now has a better stat wheel and more damage output than Dexcessa talon of slaanesh for 155 less points.nice, perfect, I approve.
>>82991139I love the box and most of the contents are useful, but some of the things they pulled just boggle the mind
>>82991154Now that we're in the age of power creep what's gonna be AoS's answer to those new tau railgun rules?
>>82991186lumineth shooty unit
Something I been wondering, the main theme and drive behind the forces of Slaneesh is being excessive. Is then then possible for the other chaos god and their forces to "bleed" into Slaneesh realm and powers. Like could a Khrone follower or demon that engages in excessive bloodshed become a follower of Slaneesh?
>>82991186Kragnos, of course. GW is determined to get people to buy that shitty model, so they'll keep heaping buffs on him.
>>82991172Same, but the undersized units really rustled my jimmies. It's not like GW offers single models to fill them to full size. Even if I had gotten a regular box of whatever unit, I would still have those useless leftovers. What the fuck were they thinking?
>>82991186aos has a lower powerful level and higher point on everything in general. Our equivalent is already Fulminators and Longstrikes.
So is this actual game fun? I just like painting plastic goblins
>>82991206Early on, maybe, but once he's in a circle of damnation there's no way back (outside the narrow edge case of getting Chaos beaten out of you with Ghal Maraz).Fundamentally it's a question of what the guy is in for. Is it for the bloodshed and the thrill of slaughter? Khorne. Is it for the orgy of excess and the honing of one's own perfection in battle? Slaanesh.
>>82991270No, we're all just here ironically.
>>82991245Getting a Tempest of souls box fixed most of the sizes except the ggr, four of those when they were min 10 was the most egregious part of sw.
>>82991270>So is this actual game fun? No it isn’t fun at all>I just like painting plastic goblinswell they’re the worst, or at least tied with worst, army in the game. So you’re going to be having even less fun getting curbstomped
>>82991278But where does one begin and the other end
>>82991308Yea, getting an incomplete 'starter' set really made me want to dole out more money to buy another incomplete 'starter' set...
>>82989775That was me, good stuff anonI'm working on my own fluff for a fleet of undead pirates in service of a god of drowned dead, but I'm scared of the concept of balancing so I didn't bother making up any rule stuff
>>82987196Has anyone here actually played Cursed City?Is it, fun?
>>82991270>So is this actual game fun? If you're a pet faction like lumineth then sure, gitz? You're almost as weak as BoC
>>82982837Do you lads recon the fyreslayers half of the new box is worth buying? Or should I just get 2 of the start collecting?
>>82991466I thought it was fun enough to play with friends. It's not as good as serious board games made by companies that just make board games, but you get to push funny guys around the board and have them beat up skelliesI also like the rule stuff about the presence of civilians in the city, adds a layer that keeps it from just being dungeon crawl
>>82991356it was still value compared to the separate units retail.
>>82991495The main problem with the SC is it doesn't have hearthguard. People have been begging for a discount on those forever since you need to spam them in the army. You still need the SC though for the runefather and rumesmiter.
>>82991516Nice. Looking for something that's pretty quick and easy to play, hopefully use it to build a basic SBGL army and use those to try and encourage friends to get into AOS
>>82991495The half of the new box and a SC would serve you best.
>>82991589It was still a shitty starter set compared to actually useful starter sets not made by greedy retards.
>>82991495Half of the new box+Starter is the best way to get started. Gives you two boxes of Vulkites, 2 Boxes of HG, the Magmadroth, and the new hero. That's a solid starting force, vs 2 SC boxes which would just be two dragons and the same number of Vulkites.
>>82991654It was mostly the sequitor unit that was fucked and, castigators and evocators either were oversized or had a cheap ETB kit to bolster units. Sequitors however were missing so much stuff you couldn’t just bolster it into a 2 5 man/ 1 10 man squad
>>82991654In conclusion, we should go back to points per model
>>82991654It was absolutely necessary to play NH.
>>82991759There were 3 etb sequitors from underworlds, and they came in the storm strike box for like 30 bucks.
>>82991815They can start a club with a moon faced goblin.
Why the fuck we cant download battlescrolls from gw site anymore? when was this announced?
>>82991917What if Stormcast Eternals had moon masks?
>>82991735Are they good now?
>>82991938Since 3rd edition launched. Several of us called it months before after seeing leaks of reboxed models no longer having the full warscrolls included and were called doomers, etc for pointing out the obvious.
>here's this hueg box set with anything you need to play>oh, and you actually need to buy a box of this, a box of that and a box of those to playI retract my statement from above. People defending this behaviour boggles my mind more than the decisions behind launching an starter box with incomplete units.
>>82991986When weren't they?
>>82992017literally no one as ever defended it schizo.
>>82991206>Is then then possible for the other chaos god and their forces to "bleed" into Slaneesh realm and powers.Yes, it's what keeps Slaanesh powerful. While the other gods have fairly specific domains, Slaanesh has no limits in that sense. Guy revelling in bloodshed? Khorne is the major focus but Slaanesh gets a cut from the pride the warrior has in their skills.Powerful mage? Tzeench tempts with knowledge but Slaanesh feeds off the pure talent.Nurgle is a bit more difficult, but there are people out there addicted to their depression and despair. Living content in squalor where disease and filth starts overtaking you is a form of hedonism in a sense.As the other anon pointed out though, once you're deep into one of the gods there's no turning back. Your soul is forfeit, and no, Sigmar's hammer won't do shit despite what the hacks at geedubs tell you.
What's the cheapest way to build a COS army?
>>82992512>Sigmar's hammer won't do shit despite what the hacks at geedubs tell you.LolLmao
>>82992663buy some high point/dollar stormcast kits, run gotrek.
>>82991986They're terrific. Maybe it's because I'm coming off OBR like an abused spouse but they're perfect. Lots of good lists that can go 4-1, maybe a couple hyper competitive ones, the mechanics flow and feel right. Nothing quite slaps like giving a pack of 20 graveguards vanhels and +1 attack and deleting your opponents 700 point piece.
>>82992405Obviously they saw the Dominion sales.
So, a unit of 10 Thralls (120pts, assuming no changes) do the following amount of wounds. First is assuming they're fighting 1W models; no buffs from anywhere just their profile.>2+ 4.44>3+ 6.67>4+ 8.89>5+ 11.11>6+ 13.33>No Save 13.33So, assuming facing a fellow 5+ unit, that's 11 models they'll take out.Now to do wounds if they were fighting 3W+ models.>2+ 5.93>3+ 8.89>4+ 11.85>5+ 14.82>6+ 17.78>No Save 17.78That means against Annihilators they could take out nearly 2 on average. Against 2H Annihilators they'll take out nearly 3. Seeing as 3 Annihilators costs 200pts, that isn't bad at all.Now I can't remember what potential buffs you could cast on them as I don't play IDK and only have their 1.0 tome, so yeah.
>>82992894You could stack +1 to hit, reroll hits of 1, and exploding 6's if you had 2 of the new hero.I know IDK have been broken forever (they might not be "top" tier at the moment, but their winrates against mid-tier and low-tier armies is criminally high) but this continues the trend of elves being broken
>>82992674He didn’t read about the time he raped the four most powerful greater demons of the gods one v one and then five on one when Archibald United them
>>82992932Lemme check then. By exploding 6's I assume you mean 'do MW on a 6'? So, assuming +1 to hit and re-rolls of 1 to hit, against 1W.2+ 6.483+ 9.734+ 12.975+ 16.216+ 19.45No Save 19.45Plus 5 (on average) Mortal Wounds (if that is what Exploding 6's does). Means they'll do 21W on average to fellow paper towels.If we do the same but against 3W+.2+ 8.643+ 12.964+ 17.285+ 21.606+ 25.92No Save 25.92With on average 3 MW's from exploding 6's. So 11W against Annihilators would remove two and leave the final one on 1W. Against 2H version they would wipe them.
>>82993014exploding 6s is when a hit roll of 6 counts as 2 hits.
>>82993048Ah. Okay my bad. So against 1W:>2+ 7.56>3+ 11.35>4+ 15.13>5+ 18.91>6+ 22.69>No Save 22.69Against 3W+>2+ 9.94>3+ 14.91>4+ 19.88>5+ 24.85>6+ 29.82>No Save 29.82
>>82992752I hate Stormcast
>>82992674What a shock, someone posts the exact shitty fanfic tier writing i was referring to.
>>82990708Are all sea elves bald?
>>82991986god, imagine if the lore of the vampires werent such trash, or if the vamps all had access to the lore of death. what a tome that would be
>>82993319>i don't like it therefore it's fanfic'no'. even if you don't, Ghal Maraz has done above and beyond shit since WHFB. It yeeted Nagash for example.
>>82993048Cries in blightking
>>82993665>>82993637They are model wise afaik. Dunno bout fluff. I assume hair would get in the way.
There a PDF of Gitslayer yet?
>>82994182How is it?
>>82989205Probably in all those path to glory expansion books that they mentioned once and never talked about again
>>82994274Not that good honestly.
>>82994291path to glory expansion books?
>>82994293Thats the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me. Thank you.>>82994274No idea, havent gotten around to reading it yet.
>>82989205The edition has just started and we've got to do the mega updates for two factions in 40k before we get anything first. Also why do you want grimderp? It's already pretty grimderp. GW has specifically said that 40k is 'set 5 mins to midnight' whilst AoS is 'set 5 mins after midnight'. As in, 40k is doom and gloom heading to the end whilst AoS has past the end and going on into potentially positive future. But we don't know.All we know - major plot point wise - is that Belacuck made the Cursed Skies, that nobody could clear than (slann tried but couldn't iirc, watch Teclis do it without trying... or Malerion who knows) and all this shit prompted Grungni to come back and make the Thunderstrike Stormcast so they could power through it. Grungni prevented Morathi getting yeeted by Celestant Prime (Kroak buggered off after the fight so bit weird he didn't hang around to give his view) and she was left to keep her city after she helped save Excelsis. She grabbed some powerful rare elf souls (hinted to be like Volturnos, original IDK souls iirc) and gave them to IDK to stop them attacking. Belacuck blew up a powerful Old One buidling, fucking the Seraphon. Seraphon blew up a Silver Tower. Kragnos is reeeing over being tricked and killing Chaos stuff. Gordrakk we don't know, he left after Kroak fucked his godbeast skull up. Teclis is expanding shit (and doing grimderp stuff to some CoS citizens). OBR are fortifying their shit due to LRL. They have a foothold in Eight Points. Chaos is doing what it normally does; Nurgle got fucked by Alarielle's mega spell (that regrew the Oak from WHFB) so is fighting back as best he can. Slaanesh gave birth to the two daemons which should be powerful but aren't and Exalted (sorry, Soulfeaster) KoS are more powerful it seems, dumbly. Khorne is Khorne. Tzeentch is reeeing his Silver Tower got blown up by Seraphon. Ogres I think are going to a big fight between two Ogre forces? Goblins are being Goblins, no idea what exactly. ,
>>82994274I liked it
>>82994490>Nurgle got fuckeddidn’t it also power his forces
>>82994356Path to Glory had an outpost system that has no rules as the book says the rules will come out in realm themed path to glory expansion books. There hasn’t been a single mention of what those are in half a year
>>82994490Fyreslayers, KO and Dispossessed are being united by Grombrindal (who Grungni created to do just that) we have no idea if this means a soup/united tome or it's just some shite that GW can pull out its arse if it needs to at a later date. Skaven I don't know if they]'re up to anything major atm, but probably are. Not read their latest tome so no idea their fluff points/plot points. Stormcast trying to clear Cursed Skies and fix Reforging flaws. CoS I don't know, GW is weird with them (other then Excelsis b eing in trouble and the DoK captured one). BoC aren't doing anything specific afaik..But next months WD might change that. Nefereta and Mannfred are fighting each other and Nef tricked some Dawnbringer Crusdes to fuck Mannfred over. Arkhan is still in the void. Nagash is dead. Vhordihai is trying to find a cure for the thirst. Katakros is defending the fort in Eight Points and against Teclis. Lady Oylander helped Belacuck. That leaves SoB who aren't really doing anything unique afaik.There, that's roughly the plot points set up for 3rd.>>82994511Afaik it was too pure and basically fucked them and cleansed loads of Nurgle infected places back to what it should be (and in some cases, better). But a lot of places in Ghyran are so infused with Nurgle they resisted, like the Reality Sores. Nurgle will bounce back because he loves corrupting life into his twisted form, so I think the idea was that Alarielle basically buffed her shit heavily so they could cleanse more stuff, Nurgle has waned but he always grows back up (he has the lowest lows but the highest highs of the Chaos Gods because of this). I'm more interested in the Oak of Ages Past or whatever it's called being back and apparently Alarielle's capital. Bring back Kurnoth and Orion and Ariel (yes I know she is part of Alarielle now), Or make a butterfly unit for sylvaneth. Sadly unlikely, they'll stick to sprites. Bring back Wood Elves for that then....
>>82994573>bring back wood elvesUnless the dark stalkers Beastmen finish genociding them first
>>82992894Reach on these guys is dumb with the deepstrike guy existing, for how cheap they are. They finally caved to the complainers, god forbid elves have an average unit.
>>82994698They were pretty sucky before hand because of that lack of reach, but now they are pretty beastly. Especially since MSU is the goal now in AoS due to le reinforcement memes. Fuck that.
>>82994736Everyone has shit units without reach in their books. I didn't see them giving it to ardboys or the 20 stormcast units that wanted it.
>>82994767They should do that
>>82994767I guess because they are pretty weak they justified that? 5+ isn't great. They can be whittled down easily enough.
>>82994920Who cares about whittling them down, they're a braindead damage bomb to just deepstrike and send into your monster with +3 charge and then they hit like graveguard. Their numbers with aoa and thrallmaster for a 20 block are absurd for 240.
>>82994974I guess, but I am not au fait with IDK rules. You know more than me. At least they got buffed. I look at Seraphon units and wonder what is going on. They're so different from their WHFB counterparts. Oh well. Perhaps GW will buff AoS stuff across the board like they're doing with 40k.
