  1. Hobby Accidents And Diasters

    I think in my @15 years in the hobby I've done all these wonderful things My most recent catastrophe, I was painting on air with some friends (paintisode) and knocked over a full bottle of Plastruct Plastic Weld all over my models and keyboard. For those of you who aren't familiar with what that is, it's a type of glue that basically melts plastic. I haven't added up the cost in models destroyed, but my new keyboards was $100. Poor, melted keys!

    You cannot be blamed, they're wonderful creatures! I'm thinking of taking a bunch with my KO

    Just curious, why would I take more Gryph Hounds? There is no shooting in the list (to my dismay!). The LC with Consumate Commander lets Vandus use his 24” immune to battle shock bubble as well as +1 attack within 9”...so if I’ve played things right , he will be in the Retributors bubble which is devastating...at least on paper. The rest of the army will be pretty mobile too, depending on scenario of course. Hoping for more feedback, Tournament is Saturday and I haven’t practiced yet

    No but *puts on tin foil Skryre hat* it could be because the Firestorm stuff was all armies that got recent updates.
  5. Let's Chat Stormcast Eternals

    Hey guys, I'm challenging myself and building and painting a Stormcast list for a tournament on October 17th. I'm still not sure about my list, I'm used to playing armies with high body counts (Orks, Skaven, Kharadron Overlords) so I'm a bit nervous at playing a list with 40 or so models. I basically have 3 Starter sets, a Getting Started set, both Silver Tower expansions and Blight Wars to work with. No Judicators This kind of restricts me to Hammerstrike as my Battalion. I can take KO as allies, I'm toying around with the idea of a unit of 30 Arkanaut Company being moved around by Lightning Chariot, the models are all painted too! My original though was just do a quick to paint Hammers of Sigmar list and call it done. I do prefer darker themed armies, like Anvils of Heldenhammer and Sons of Mallus so I might wiggle a bit here. I was going to take Vandus for his 24" Immune to Battleshock bubble as well as +1 attack within 9", which when paired with 2 10 man units of Retributors would be absolutely murderous. Back them up with a Lord Celestant (he is the general, consumate commander) for the +1 to hit and it starts to get silly (a blessed unit of 10 will on average do 30 mortal wounds and 30 normal wounds). I'm starting to wonder if they really need to be buffed up that much.

  6. Target war machine and crew

    You declare what you shoot at, so you can target the crew and kill them. Since they aren't as tough and have less wounds everyone targets the crew first, hence disabling the Warmachine.

    Yeah those are the things that still have me at the thinking about things level. I am trying to reserve judgement until I get some practice games in, though I've gone from playing multiple games weekly to not playing much at all due to family health issues. Hoping things get on the up and up soon so I can continue destroying my enemies in the friendliest way possible.
  8. Let's chat Kharadron Overlords

    I'm of 2 minds on these changes so far. First off, I love the look of the army so Fluffington P. Whirlydoodle is still happy. This will make me happy to play with my Boats and Balloon Boyz in some fun narrative play. However, I just dumped a LOT of money into this army to make it competetive, I love playing hard as well as in tournaments. My aim was to make a competetive army that looks great on the tabletop...now it's just a lukewarm army that will look great on the tabletop...if I get motivated to finish it. I use the tournaments here as motivation to finish.
  9. Brand new to AoS and starting Skaven - help!

    You have a good start, more Clan Rats and Stormvermin would be good. Doomwheels look awesome, their performance is lackluster unless used as distraction or chaff. Stormfiends are great, so are warpfire throwers. on my phone so not a complete list by any means. Search my Skaven posts

    100% on board, Tom. I see why GW did it, but it's super harsh for those of us that went all in. I hope the ships are better....

  13. 2k Skaven vs Mixed Death Battle Report

    Nico has the right of it, sorry I used poor terminology there.
  14. 2k Skaven vs Mixed Death Battle Report

    Tough matchup, Stormvermin vs the Spirit Hosts. I think it may have worked better if you had pushed both 10 man units on either side objective, and kept the main bulk of your force in the center as a counter charge as well as a way to move right up the center to your opponents home objective. Also, you need some Immunity to Battleshock in there. Think about the Crown of Command artifact. Warplightning Cannons are so good. You need to play more than one game with them to see. Dealing direct mortal wounds without having to roll to hit is pretty great (it's just rolling to wound). If you roll a 1, it's all autohit.

    Admiral is for a big Immune to Battleshock bubble.
