Shadespire Warband Wish List

41 posts in this topic

Gaz Taylor    605

With more information coming out about Shadespire, I thought it would be interesting to see what people would like to see in the game. We already know about the Stormcast, Blood Reavers and Sepulchral Guard, but what would you like to see?

I would love to see a Clan Eshin Warband that is fast and sneaky and I would also love to see a Nurgle Daemon Warband as I think that would be fun in the setting. Aelves would be ace as something brand new too

Well, in my opinion it would be cool to see Moonclan Grots. Squigs and fanatics as a crazy warband.

Ironjaws, kharadon overlords,

Yep, I can see these too. Both would look really cool in the setting and I think you could have a cool Jason and the argonauts theme for the Overlords!

I think you may see something like this but I would like to see something bit different but still Moonclan themed. Maybe some mutated Squigs that have merged with their Grot controllers/riders?

Never catch on ;) 

Gors could be good but not sure what they would be doing in a city as a warband. Depends on the setting of Shadespire

That is a good idea, who knows how Nagash' pocket dimension affects mortals.

Skaven. All the Skaven. 

I'm talking a band of Eshin ninja rats, a bunch of Moulder creations and their terrible packmaster, experimental weapons teams from Skryre, a pestilent congregation, and a verminus warlitter. 

I also think that these warbands could be a really easy way to flesh out some factions that might need a boost but won't see big releases. A character and a small unit could be a great way to fill in gaps, though the new allies system seems set to do this anyway.

Anything chaosy that doesn't look like a frat bro.

Something along the lines of Blood Warriors, Chaos Warriors or Chosen would be great.

Or I could see a Tzeentch warband with a caster as focal point with weak demon summons that do the dirty work.

Ruins and skaven is a perfect match. Besides them we need an destruction force, I would love to see a mixed orruks/grots-warband. More in the old ravagerstyle.

Following your train of thought I totally want new deamon sculpts! But I'd specially like 5 new BloodLetters, since I play Khorne. 

Skaven need some love. I doubt we'll get new Aelves for a while but would love to be proven wrong.

Ooh good question! I'd like some Aelven White Lions with a hero character like Korhil- maybe even with some lion companions! They'd be brutal in attack with some leaping movement mechanic!

Would like to see Shadespire used in part as a test bed for races/factions that are not currently part of main AoS.  Stuff that doesn't have any real connection to the WFB days but fits within the context of Sigmar.

Definitely some stuff along the lines of iconic Mordheim races. Each faction should be have a strong iconic identity that sets them apart.

So Skaven Eshin is definitely up there and fits the theme. Could even double up as new plastic Gutter Runners. Extremely fast, extremely sneaky, but very fragile.

Devoted of Sigmar would be super appealing! I think it'd be an awesome set of a Witch Hunter, 2 Flagellants, 2 Zealots and a War hound. Sounds sick!

Carnival of Chaos would be awesome! A warband led by the Troupe Master, bringing Nurgles love to the world. A Carnival Master. a Brute and some corrupted clowns, what's not to love!

Free Peoples goes without saying, a fancy pants captain leading a motley crew to Shadespire for treasure and glory.

Fyreslayers in the search for Ur'Gold, a hot-headed Runeson leading a small band of a Vulkite Berserker, Hearthguard Berserker and Auric Hearthguard to hunt down some stolen Ur Gold.

 

Overall, what I hope the most is that we get tons of these minor factions within the greater Age of Sigmar taking a bigger role in Shadespire. I don't want to see Stormcast get like a second faction set (like Vanguard chamber) before we get at least 3 other Order races (Yeah, that's not gonna happen).

Sharespire is the perfect opportunity to kill 2 birds with one stone. Bring out interesting warbands in Shadespire, while also giving existing Age of Sigmar factions new warscrolls.

I'll be honest, picking up some nice Shadespire warbands while simultaneously filling some gaps in my AoS collection would kill two birds with one stone.

1. Tzaangor x4 warband would complement the Silver Tower lot nicely for AoS.

2.  Fimir x2 (with a noble).   Would then just need one more noble to go along with my 3 warriors for two proper 3 man units in AoS.

3.  Sourbreath Troggoths x2 (to complement Skull Pass troll)

4. Chaos Warriors x3-4

5. Khorgorath with Stoker (new models)

Completely agree with this

I feel they can do a good service to the lesser factions in AOS that don't seem to have direction right now. To add onto your list, I would like Dispossessed Treasure Hunters, though with the announcement of Fyreslayers, I doubt it. I also hope they can do something with Ogor Maneaters. That would be cool to see: Ogor Mercenaries who represent different cultures (current or lost) of the Mortal Realms. I also wouldn't mind if Brayherds received some love since they are now a handy faction in GH2

Would love to see Beast's of Chaos making an appearance, a real mix of models.

 

Maybe a Mino, Centigor and a couple of Gor. Would love to see them reimagined in AOS and in Shadespire in particular where the models can be so dynamic.

Personally I would like to see Seraphon, a Saurus warband would be pretty great. Could also see Ogors working as a small sized one such as SCE only has 3.

 

For Death, I would like to see a Vampire warband - not all Vampires, but kinda like Blood Bowl where you have 1 or 2 and then a handful of Thralls.

It's selfish (because I play these two armies), but I would love to see Kharadron Overlords and Disciples of Tzeentch.

It hasn't been totally clear to me how spellcasting fits into the game (maybe just ranged attacks + Spell Power cards?) but a casting based DoT team would be awesome.

 

The unfortunate aspect of Kharadron Overlords is that you clearly won't be able to play the big ships...

I would really like a Bloodletter Warband.

Narratively it doesn't really make sense but I'd love 5 new models to vary up my AoS rank &a file.
