  1. Back when I was a kid playing Warhammer, I sucked. I lost to my friends all the time. I've always been defensive-minded in everything from sports to board games. But AoS and I think specifically one of Russ Veal's podcasts taught me to be aggressive. I became a much better player with AoS (maybe also because I'm an adult now) by being just balls to the wall aggressive.
  2. Yeah I meant the Drill Cannon. Though the range on it was changed for the Gunhauler too I believe to 24 inches. In a sea of great things the company has been doing, I think it is pretty bad for GW to be selling outdated products. Same thing with the Grand Alliance books. They border on scamming the customer.
  3. The warscrolls should definitely change with the FAQ changes. Stuff like changes to the weapon ranges on Kharadron models needs to be on the scrolls. The FAQ should only remain for questions of technical aspects of the game, ambiguous wording, tricky situations etc. A lot of players wouldn't even know to go to a FAQ to find out their warscrolls are incorrect.
  4. The Rumour Thread

    I think the new model is okay but seems a bit generic, kind of like the Death hero before too. Maybe they will all be a bit like that. New logo is nice.

    I think the wording is ambiguous enough that you could technically argue in favour of multiple hooks, but the spirit of the rule seems much more to me like a single grapple.

    I'm surprised everyone seems to prefer Flayers over Horrors. I don't have as much experience as most players, but Horrors have done so much more for me than Flayers. I find Flayers too weak to get through much and only valuable for the flying. Horrors can go toe-to-toe with the best in other lists and take a pretty big bite out of anything.

    A middleground on some of these things could be "up to 1 unit of X counts as battleline if"

    I couldn't resist Brokk, despite the points cost. That is the model that made me love the army. The whole warscroll is great. I love the gun names - Magnate's Charter and Grungsson's Boast. Then abilities like The Lord-Magnate Moves. Just love that crazy eccentric flying balloon terminator duardin.
  9. Hordes or hoax

    I kinda feel anecdotally that one horde unit is a thing, not a whole massive horde army. Feels balanced and a nice addition to the meta.

    Great video. You mentioned at the end you like painting the KO but didn't get a chance to say why, which I'm curious about. I was initially scared off the army because of how detailed the models were, which I usually don't like, but now that I have them, I surprisingly love painting these little guys.
  11. I think everyone goes through ups and downs like that. Sometimes painting feels like a huge chore and other times I can't wait to get plugging away as soon as I wake up. I tend to go back and forth between armies I'm actually trying to do a good, detailed job on and speed-painted armies. Sometimes I just want to half-watch videos while drybrushing/washing a whole army, and other times I actually want to work hard. It helps keep me painting and producing during those periods "real painting" seems like a chore.
  12. It's been said a few times in the past, but I'd die for a compendium type of book that documents the terrain, rivers, oceans, mountain ranges, creatures, life, mysteries, history etc of one of the realms. It doesn't need to and shouldn't be written in a way to close off anything new coming there or give all the answers and a full map of where everybody is, but just to make the realms feel more alive, populated and unique.

    I think it was Tom from Warhammer Weekly who had a couple great ideas about the Gunhauler, namely making some synergy with the other Grundstok unit, the Thunderers, perhaps letting it transport 5 of them, and having offensive bombs rather than defensive. Just going from memory so sorry Tom if I am misattributing you here.
  14. I would have preferred a harder break from the Old World as well. A lot of the old stuff feels dragged and shoehorned into AoS. Another thing along with this is all the square base models still for sale on the store. It doesn't feel like a cohesive universe but more like what it is - a new one created with the parts of an old one and kind of jammed together in a meatloaf that they're making up as they cook it. That said, I totally understand why they wouldn't want to do a complete bridge burning from the Old World, all of its models included.
