  1. Let's chat: Daughters of Khaine

    Grand Alliance: Order. "unleash mayhem" Mayhem, noun violent or extreme disorder; chaos.
  2. Now, regarding the major gods and their representation in game; only two have appeared on the field of battle in the 'flesh'. It is doubtfulwe will see models for the chaos gods themselves or Sigmar, since they are already represented in game through their avatars. So which of the remaining will likely see it into plastic? I think the chances of Malerion, Tyrion/Teclis and Grungni are quite high. Grimnir is dead (but what if the Fyreslayers collect all of dat ur-gold?). I am unsure about Gorkamorka - I don't think that Gordrakk counts as an avatar of Gork? But I feel that seeing a model for Gorkamorka himself (themselves?) seems unlikely. Incarnates: Alarielle Nagash Sigmar --> avatar: Celestant Prime Gorkamorka --> ?avatar Grimnir Grungni Malerion Tyrion / Teclis Greater Chaos Gods: Khorne --> avatar: Bloodthirster Tzeentch --> avatar: Lord of Change Nurgle --> avatar: Great Unclean One Slaanesh --> avatar: Keeper of Secrets Great Horned Rat --> avatar: Verminlord
  3. The Great Corruptor is the aspect of the Great Horned Rat that the clans Pestilens worship - they do NOT worship Nurgle. I suppose they get the Nurgle keyword for functionality in the game more than anything else. The Great Corruptor is all about seeing things wither away. If everything else is gone, he is the most powerful. Nurgle wants life to flourish (and in a nurturing, parent-like way) as long as he is the overlord of it. Things only die so there can be a cycle of regrowth. They are actually quite different, but their methods overlap quite a bit so they can be allies at times.
  4. New Nurgle models

    This is what all Liberators aspire to be! 😜
  5. New Nurgle models

    Hmm you're right. Let's hope this gets rectified in the battletome, as he's clearly a plaguebearer (even moreso than Epidemius, who counts) pun intended. Not to mention that Skulltaker is a bloodletter and the Changeling is a horror.
  6. New Nurgle models

    You've spelled 'best' wrong. You must have autocorrect on a weird 'Sigmarite' setting
  7. New Nurgle models

    So that makes 5 plaguebearer heroes/heralds now? Sloppity Bilepiper Spoilpox Scrivener Herald of Nurgle (to be renamed?) Horticulous Slimux Epidemius That makes even more herald options than Bloodletters (4). I guess Horrors also have 5 if you include the Blue Scribes.
  8. New Nurgle models

    *4 of the 5 Bring on the Keeper!
  9. Yeah I tend to agree with the point's Mayple raised. And despite the freebie blightkings in the #blobpit, it's not as big a benefit when you take into account the bonus wounds from the three extra unit leaders. And I'd feel like it was a waste not having multiple units for that Virulent healing - the total healing potential goes up exponentially with each additional unit within range of each other.
  10. Would you not still take MSU of each of the three darkling units to make the total effective unit count 30? A unit that comes to mind for not fitting into MSU or max size would be blood warriors (min size 5). With their goreglave upgrade being a very worthwhile addition (put it on the unit leader!), but only available to take 1 per unit of 10, this is probably the ideal unit size.
  11. The Rumour Thread

    Apparently WD cards are from Shadespire, WHQ and Bloodbowl
  12. The Rumour Thread

    There is at least one Shadespire power card included, not sure what WHQ cards are there (they don't seem big enough for hero cards). It looks like there will be an array of cards for different systems.
  13. Agreed, Gaunt Summoner's, Bloodwrack Medusae and Plagueclaws love fighting hordes. Though conversely there are also those spells/effects that hit every unit within a range (Drycha, Snakes-on-a-Don) so MSU would suffer in that scenario.
  14. Edited with latest news; adversary cards! And there are rumours of a Hammerhal dungeon map/adventure in the Dec 2017 WD.
  15. What drew you to collect your Army

    The two things that drew me to Chaos were: 1. The old gargoyle from Hero Quest had evolved into this even heftier Greater Daemon (Bloodthirster), 2. Not only that there was a Greater Daemon for 5 different chaos gods! And each (well almost) had their own lesser daemon infantry as well. I guess I liked the symmetry in an army of "chaos" - I had always liked cycles of similar cards in each of the colours of MtG for example. Despite that the other army that caught my eye were Dark Elves. As such, of course, I opted for a Cult of Slaanesh as my first Chaos army (Dark Elves + Slaanesh daemons). Now Slaanesh is the smallest of my branches of chaos. The only reason I haven't gone after the current Archaon model is the lack of Keeper of Secrets head - it's just not a complete model! I need a plastic Keeper of Secrets head for a conversion but feel like it's going to be quite a challenge to do...
