  1. I think I would possibly leave this group and start an Open / Narrative group. Possibly looking at pushing the Narrative to get each member to produce an series of linked games. Sent from my E2303 using Tapatalk

  3. Right people. I need some help. I have looked at the warscrolls for The Legions of Azgorh and think that most of my army could be re-labelled to fit these. I couldn't find a list for the Lammasu in there though so did some searching and found a warscroll for that and the Great Taurus in the Warriors of Chaos warscrolls by GW. After reading these I noticed that the Great Taurus couldn't have a model mounted on it as it would deal out damage to the model with its Blazing Body, but could you place a CD Sorcerer onto the Lammasu as the Sorcerous Miasma doesn't affect Chaos sorcerers. There by having a CD Sorcerer riding a Lammasu. I know that the Lammasu is listed as a wizard itself (being able to use Arcane Bolt and Mystic Shield) but I think I would drop that ability if the CD Sorcerer was mounted on it as a fair trade off. What are your thoughts.
  4. Who needs points? Just get your models onto the table and play. If I come across someone who wants to field 400 models to my 40 so be it. But after the game there will be some seriously "friendly" banter about how I know what William Wallace felt like and how my few little units took down half their army. Anyone who would want to play that many against a small smattering of models is probably not confident of their own skill, anyways. For those that are still bothered set the scene (realm gate battle, King of the Hill etc.) and then agree to something like: no more than 2 battleline units of 10 models and 2 character models, of which one is to be General. If a Monster is played then that counts as your 2 character models. It's never that difficult to play an Open Play game. It's all about having a bloody good time, win or lose.
  5. @Veterannoob I listen to Ben's podcasts regularly so should be very interested in this one. Cheers for the heads-up.
  6. Totally agree here. When there are multiple players in the fold keeping track of turn order and phases can become painful. Here is where a good GM is needed. Teaming up and have a couple of teams does make this easier and is therefore a possible solution to the problem. Back to General's Handbook and most notably the uneven player guide. One option is to play a game of predetermined number of rounds and one player Holding a line against the other two for as long as possible. This can also be added to a Narrative game as a beginning to a whole other battle.
  7. We are having fun, that to me is what it is all about. Yes I play to win and so does my Son but at the end of the day it's all about having fun, a bit of a giggle and not taking everything too seriously. We play games to escape the humdrum and seriousness of life, don't we?
  8. I don't think anyone should knock Open Play. It is an easy way to get into the hobby and learn the rules. I am relatively new to the game, after many years away from the hobby, and introduced my son to it as well. On that introduction my local store signed us up to their 'Academy' in which they taught building and painting skills and also how to play games and strategy tips. These games that were played were all open play as every member of the Academy had different models ready to battle with and each week this would change. That said there was a great many games played such as racing to control Realm Gates or all factions team up to beat a mighty beast with regenerating health or a battle of wits using wizards or priest to bolster a unit in a pre-set number of rounds. All were most enjoyable and my son and I are always just getting our latest buys built and painted and onto the table for a battle. This is fun and helps to learn some of the skills available from those models. Besides not everyone has the funds to instantly go out and purchase an army worth 2000+ points and the books to teach them the intricacies of Match play. I say: Agree with your opponent(s) what you will play with (models), decide on a setting / theme and PLAY!
  9. Cheers. I totally forgot about them. I wouldn't mind but I think Ben actually mentioned something about them in his podcast. Apologies for being old and senile.
  10. I listened to Ben's podcast the other day about what he would play in BoK and he mentioned keeping 300 points spare to possibly put in 3 units of Bloodletters as a back up unit. Ben's unit choice was as follows: Bloodsecrator Bloodstoker Mighty Lord of Khorne Valkia the Bloody Slaughterpriest Daemon Prince of Khorne plus units of Bloodwarriors, Marauders, Wrathmongers and Skullreapers My question is this how do you summon a unit of Daemons with no wizards? Am I missing something like a totem or artifact that can summon, or does the DPoK give the right to play the Bloodletters? I have looked at the new BoK battletome and I don't seem to see anything about summoning as Khorne don't like magic.
  11. Cracking podcast chap. After listening to this I had to go get Valkia The Bloody for my army. Cheers.
  12. What about a turn based strategy akin to FF Tactics. Choose your faction. Select your army from the list of available characters / units and fight. Battle in different realms with living scenery. As you progress through the game you unlock more characters and units to bolster you army and then get a better selection. Play through quests to gain relics and then you could add these to your options and take them on-line in match-plays.
  13. Once I have a moment I will take an in depth look at all this, and see what can be used as substitutes for other models. I will post on here when done and let you know what the army will consist of. I know I have CD warriors, Bull centaurs, blunderbuss, etc so these should be quite straight forward to convert.
  14. Thank you all for your input and help. \m/ It looks like I might be re-basing some Chaos Dwarf models soon. Should go nice with my slowly growing Khorne army. Shame about the Hobgoblins not having the Chaos keyword that would have been the icing on the cake.
  15. I apologise in advance if this has been posted before. I have a Chaos Dwarf army from way back (early 90's) and was wondering if it was possible to incorporate them into AoS. I have noticed that GW have put some warscrolls out there for WHFB armies, and Chaos Dwarves is one of them. The thing is, the Chaos Dwarf army I have is from the 5th/6th not the later 8th edition and what about the Hobgoblins? Would it be possible to bring them onto the scene? Any help would be grateful.
