  1. Removing Paint from Lead Models

    I use isotope alcohol on my metal and plastic miniatures, works a treat
  2. Let's Chat: Free Peoples

    There doesn't seem to be enough love here for the former Empire. Is anybody playing with their Empire army under the Freeguild / Devotee of Sigmar / Ironweld / Collegiate Arcane? To start the ball rolling here is a 2,500pt list I recently used. The list is a traditional Empire list with the addition of a Celestant Prime (acting as Sigmar, using a Voltan model) and Gryph-hound (because I had a spare 40 pts). I've learnt a lot with this list and will be looking to make slight amendments for the next match... Free Guild of the Empire 2500 Leader Type Points Models 1 Celestant Prime (acting as Sigmar) 360 1 2 Battlemage 100 1 3 Freeguild General 100 1 4 5 6 7 8 Battleline 1 Freeguild Guard (swords) 240 30 2 Freeguild Guard (swords) 80 10 3 Freeguild Crossbowmen 200 20 4 Freeguild Archers 100 10 Freeguild Greatswords 480 30 Gryph-hound 40 1 Artillery 1 Cannon 180 1 2 3 4 5 Behemoths 1 Steam Tank 300 1 2 Celestial Hurricanum 320 1 3 4 5

    It’s 99.9% what I ran at CanCon, with the exception being my Griffons had Great Hammers instead of Lance & Sword. I wanted consistency. Strong list in my opinion!
  4. Aesthetics of new factions

    Mostly because humans already exist in Chaos through the Mauraders, Tzeentch Arcanites, and the other Slaves to Darkness models. I’m not against it, I just considered them spoken for already. We don’t have Death or Deatruction humans atm.
  5. WiP Wednesdays

    So I’ve been dying to slap paint on some models, however; i’m mostly preparing and converting. I’ve been basing my 3 Terrorghiests and 1 Zombie Dragon As well as working on my Warscryer Citadel
  6. Let's Chat: Free Peoples

    They are so good, I have considered running 3 in a 2k list
  7. AoS Coach

    The latest AoS Coach is up on YouTube and I look at Mysterious Landscapes. What is it, why is it important, how do you use it, and how do you best incorporate it into your battles. Comments and feedback are always appreciated!
  8. AoS Coach

    Hi All, After being inspired by so many great YouTuber's, I've thrown my hat into the ring and started a YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQMNLM_JuDNLbvGG0ZUA8ow AoS Coach is focused on short videos that drill into key topics within the game in order to help players go from Good to Great. I've finished recording the first two episodes and will release them over the next 48hrs, starting with a series focused on Tournaments. Keep an eye out tomorrow!
  9. Being strict with new players?

    Work backwards from the outcome you desire. If you want them to start collecting an army or play more games, you want to give them a great experience. Give them advice, keep the game simple, and make sure the game is enjoyable. In their first few games, I wouldn't nit pick. If I told them the official rules I doubt they would remember in the future... what they will remember is how you made them feel. I played a game recently with my best friend. We used to play in the late 90's and he hasn't touched GW since University. He beat me with my own Free People models, and despite knowing that I'm a good player, he still talks about the time he beat me. He went on to buy his own Khorne Bloodbound force and askes for advice all the time.
  10. Aesthetics of new factions

    I get the feeling that Free People as a faction will span across Order, Destruction and Death... with the most comprehensive builds, depending on the Realm or GA it fits under. There is no reason that the humans have to ONLY sit under Order.
  11. Aesthetics of new factions

    I feel like Firestorm was meant to do that, however; executed poorly. I could see a Battletome: Free Cities or sometime literally picking up these rules and tying together all the random and loose factions
  12. Let's Chat: Free Peoples

    I see them more as a unit I'd want to hide (in Knife to the Heart) and with a late game run to the objective. Maybe from Turn 3-4
  13. Let's Chat: Free Peoples

    Did you get to play them in Knife to the Heart?
  14. Let's Chat: Free Peoples

    Tell me more about the Outriders. Why did you take them, how did you use them, were you happy with them?
  15. Event Title: Coalescence: Malign Portents (Sydney, Australia) Event Author: MrCharisma Calendar: Events Australia Event Date: 03/17/2018 08:30 AM to 03/17/2018 05:30 PM Hosted by Anthony Magro AoS Sydney will be joining a global narrative campaign, and I welcome you to join in on the fun! Coalescence Malign Portents is a narrative based event, run globally, and in conjunction with Games Workshop. Narrative events are different to traditional Matched Play events. What you can expect; Story Driven - Your actions change how the story develops. Linked Games - Results of one game affect another. Asymmetrical Battleplans - armies may have different or opposing objectives rather than mirrored ones. Team scoring - Scoring encourages team cooperation rather than just individual success. Game Variety - Varied game sizes and a mix of 1v1 and multiplayer games (tbc). Narrative Awards - Awards that recognize achievements that relate to the story. The location is TBC and will depend on interest. I’ll attempt to keep the location as accessible as possible and near public transport. There is likely to be a room hire, so a small cost may be included for expenses and prizes. More information will be announced through AoS Sydney group and on Warhammer Community. Stay tuned!

  17. Lets Chat: Legions of Nagash

  18. U.S. AoS Community Group Modular Pack

    @Odiamh ... this pack is incredible! I've been following it on Twitter and love the combined thought leadership from the US Community.
  19. Lets Chat: Legions of Nagash

    That's a sexy ability for Knife to the Heart. Double stack the gravesites around the objective, then rush most of your army towards your enemy
  20. Mixed Offerings

    Awesome force so far... and the Goblin Riders... wow... what a mix of awesome and crazy
  21. Cancon 2018: Top 10 Army Lists

    The things I would do to the rules writers at GW is Free People could tunnel! I don't believe Dispossed would rank nearly as high if he didn't have this ability. No disrespect to Dan, he is an amazing opponent and one of the best Sportsmen on the scene, who I had the pleasure of playing at the Australian Masters (and beat ;-)), but it definitely helps get them up the board and challenge for the major victory in Knife to the Heart and Scorched Earth.
  22. Pitched Play = Matched Play Can't double cast the same spell, regardless if it was successful or not.
  23. Lets Chat: Flesh Eater Courts

    From a narrative perspective, I can see why FEC didn't fall in line with Nagash
  24. Magic Defense for Stormcast?

    I'd suggest taking a Luminark of Hysh. For 240pts in ally goodness you'll get; 6+ ward save within 10" 30" shot that does -2 rend, 6 damage Wizard Hoard killing spell A great centre piece model
