    I think he meant "big" Morathi.

    Mercenary Stormcast?

    In a way, the loss of personality makes them more reflective of the extreme interpretation of Order, in which there is no room for individuality.

    I like the implication that The Mask Impassive isn't only an external piece of gear. My reaction to the piece was "Huh, that's neat." It certainly didn't knock my socks off, but it seems fine. Just one man's opinion.

    I just finished 20 Liberators and I really like how they came out. I hope there's still a "place" for them in AoS 2.0.

    AoS 2.0 Winners and Losers

    4th edition will be trapezoids. You heard it here first.

    Yeah, let's have another 90 pages of no discussion about anything related to 2nd edition except for the Dickensian tragedy of one whiner who can't win with his Beastclaws. That will be edifying indeed.

    Army for hobbyist

    Knights Excelsior are reportedly somewhat edgy and they have a cool color scheme.

    It's all about what works for your story of course, but it seems to me that the Knight-Incantor (the lady with the Spirit Flasks) might find a need to trade/explore with the Overlords. Scoundrels and Laser Knights often end up adventuring together.
  9. Ben, thanks for the positive, upbeat post. I was kinda done here until I saw the "2+ Tough" guy mention it on his channel, so I came back by. I'm excited about AoS; I can go practically anywhere on the internet and see apoplectic cynics ****** on harmless things. I was hoping that TGA would be a fun place to geek out. I know that not everybody will be happy with everything, and inevitable change can bring that to the fore. On the other hand, if you have a life where you can play games like AoS, you're having a good life. I'm sure it's not perfect, but I think it's valuable to realize that you're probably living like a king compared to most of the people who have ever lived. So what if they nerf your Terror Toad? Just say it counts as a Doom Hippo and let's roll some dice. It's all just for fun anyways.

    Speaking as an experienced wargamer but someone who has not had a lot of experience with AoS, I like the double turn because it makes the game seem more like a battle. My stock example is from Napoleon at Borodino in 1812, when Prince Eugene's corps came to a halt within range of a huge concentration of Russian artillery while the commander tried to figure out whether the Cossacks attacking his rear were an indication that the whole French army was being flanked, or if it was just a bunch of doofuses stealing his luggage (it was the latter). Meanwhile, proud veteran soldiers and heavy cavalry in glittering breastplates were standing at attention in the middle of one of the largest battles in history while rows of men were getting deleted by cannon fire. Gamers tend not to like that but it's the way it worked out. My point is, that's the way war is (there are thousands of such examples), but gamers usually like their war to be an orderly and predictable affair. From what I can tell it is anything but... it seems almost as if the outcomes of many famous battles are too ludicrous (Suomussalmi...) to even be allowed for in many sets of game rules. So if the rules are a bit crazy, swingy and open-ended, that passes the "smell test" for me as far as something that works as a wargame. Just one man's opinion, etc.

    AOS Background : Retcons ?

    It's only a retcon if there's no explanation. I wouldn't be surprised if the topography of the Mortal Realms changes from time to time for various reasons. And how long has it been between the Realmgate Wars and the Malign Portents? It could be a while.

    Are they Golden Pantaloons?

    This looks amazing! I just started building a Stormcast army so it looks like I'm in luck... reinforcements incoming! Given how I've been eyeing the existing Nighthaunt line... I think a Stormcast v Nighthaunt core box is perfect for me. Very happy!

    I just bought the Liberators box. It has 10 figures, but 4 special weapons (which can be included 1:5). Therefore that's enough special weapons for 20 dudes. So if you supplement your starter set with a box of Liberators, you're golden*. * - See what I did there?
