    1. Thats not a problem. People almost never look at my battletome. And when they do just to see what a specific rule does. Never for to-hit or damage values. There is enough trust in my gaming circle, also people will just look at the warscroll themselves afterwards. 2. No, thats not even an exaggeration. One Döner Kebab is 4€-4,50€ and a Battletome costs 20-25€.

    You can print out the changed warscrolls. The scrolls itself are also the smallest part of a Battletome next to the point costs. You still have the artwork, background stuff, allegiance abilities, etc. You can even just put a post-it in your book. Thats how I did it for the Kharadron changes (besides the Thunderer change, but I use Aetherrifle only so there wasn't much of a change for me)

    No. The "big book" will be more like an introduction to the Mortal Realms. Lots of background, maps and reworked rules for Grand Alliances. So if you play a battletome army (as all Battletomes stay valid) and you are not interested in the background stuff you dont need to buy it. The Generals Handbook isn't necessary to keep playing as the updated point costs will be available on scrollbuilder.com as usual. The only thing im not sure about is the magic expansion. Im sure it will be in one of the two books and not released alone. Maybe it will be tacked on to the Generals Handbook to keep the other book more focused on the introduction part? Anyway, what I try to say is: you won't be forced to buy any of these books. You can keep playing with what you have if you want to.

    Agreed! I near exclusively play 1000-1250 point games as I like how quick they are and that they can be played on smaller battlefields.

    Let's chat Kharadron Overlords

    I played one 500p game against some deepkin, of course nowhere near representative. I used a frigate, 10 Arkanauts and the Lord Ordinator Harbinger. The game was relatively boring as I didnt have any movement shenanigans and It simply devolved into shooting his 20 Namarti Reavers while he resurrected D3+3 every turn. I think Barak-Zilfin and Endrinriggers are necessity when facing deepkin.
  6. GW just uploaded a first teaser for tomorrows first episode of the Stormcast podcast Im really happy with the audio quality. Im not a native speaker and the background noises during the Warhammer TV livestream where always a massiv turn off for me as it was hard to understand when not paying full attention. They also announced on Facebook that they will have a podcasts ready three (3!) times a week. I will definitiv tune in tomorrow to see if they can deliver.

    Malign Portents

    Yes, I agree. Looks like it was inspired by traditional Japanese art. The first one looks like it was inspired by the traditional Hannya mask without the horns but the pronounced eyebrows and the tusks. The empty eyes could also imply that this is supposed to be a mask. The second piece looks like a mixture of a Samurai helmet with the emblem above the eyes, the nose is similar as well. While the two snakes on the sides are more traditional nordic looking with the runes and all. And at last the beard is stylized as lightning bolts we have seen so many times before on anything related to Azyr/Sigmar.

    Fresh from the official german Age of Sigmar Facebook page. Its official: summoning will be free for every army. They will use other resources instead. A different one for each faction. The Seraphon will use rituals performed by Astrolith banner bearer and Slann Starmasters to summon new units.

    Let's chat: Daughters of Khaine

    At least ten. This is the list I used recently: Allegiance: Daughters Of Khaine- Temple: Hagg NarLeadersBloodwrack Shrine (220)- General- Trait: Devoted Desciples - Artefact: Crystal Heart - Lore of Shadows: MindrazorHag Queen (60)- Prayer: Catechism of MurderBattleline10 x Blood Sisters (280)10 x Witch Aelves (100)- Pairs of Sacrificial KnivesUnits5 x Doomfire Warlocks (160)- Lore of Shadows: the witheringBehemothsAvatar of Khaine (180) Not the most optimized list as this is mostly just the stuff I have at the moment. The core of this army are the Shrine, the Hag Queen and 10 Sisters. I'd like to throw units at the enemy until I can unleash the buffed up Blood Sisters on the enemy. 10 Sisters with Mindrazor, Witch brew and Catechism of Murder in turn 3 or later will destroy everything. In my last game they shredded trough a full health Maw-crusha in one round of close combat. They are brutal on such a low point level. Sometimes I have to sacrifice my Warlocks or my Witch aelfs for my Blood Sisters but I always feel like its worth it. But my experience may not be universal as I have faced only close combat focused armies so far and DoK are especially strong against them, in my opinion.

    Let's chat: Daughters of Khaine

    I dont like Witch Aelfs either but Bloodwrack Shrines and Blood Sisters have proven quite successful for me on the 1K level. I have tried 5 Khinerai and 5 Doomfire Warlocks but I didnt liked them too much but maybe they get better If I tried 10 of each.

    Age of Sigmar: Second Edition

    Funny that these two artefacts are basically taken nearly 1:1 from the Daughters of Khaine faction The Crown is the Medusa shooting attack but with less range and the sword is a DoK artefact too.

    Fluff Problems

    My friend, let me tell you of Ser Roggen of the knightly order of the Furrow and bravest human in service of our Lady Alarielle. … what I wanted to say is: read basically anything written by Josh Reynolds. He created some great characters for Age of Sigmar already and they will appear in different stories all the time. Ser Roggen appears in "Spear of Shadows", together with Adhema and other heroes. Definitely worth a read.

    Fluff Problems

    The Afterlife in the mortal realms is shaped by the believes of the different people. A Sigmar worshipper will end in his version of heaven/hell after he dies. Even though Nagash has absorbed the other gods of death this is still how Shyish works as his rule is far from absolut.

    -2 on to hit rolls when targeting High Oracle of Khaine Morathi sounds nice. Also, a Bloodwrack Shrine isnt a MONSTER so thats nice as well.
  15. Great story! Having Korhil reincarnate as a great lion fits the style of the Mortal Realms. I also like that you incorporated the concept of God beasts, they are way too underused at the moment. But I have to admit, the thought of rainbow colored lions made me chuckle a bit. Do you plan on writing about the organization of these lion cults?
