  1. Lets Chat: Flesh Eater Courts

    Hey guys, in the middle of starting my FEC, going Horror heavy with a big block of Ghouls coming along for the ride. Going to be a fun project to do with no end goal in sight, means I can expand into Death as well as I've not got a Death army yet. I have a feeling I know how this is meant to be played out but how does the Horror's Noble Blood work? Says each Crypt Horror heals 1 Wound in each hero phase. Do people play it that unit heals 1 wound (how I think it should be done) or do you heal 1 wound for each Crypt Horror model in the unit so could heal a unit of 6 which has a model on 1 wound left to full wounds again? Cheers! Chalmers
  2. Let's chat : Slaanesh

    Played Duality of Death Really enjoyed them, they're stupidly fast even being hindered by the Sylvaneth woods they got where they needed to go. My Daemonettes being able to run and charge managed to tie up both a Durthu and Treelord Ancient in combat for three turns, killing Durthu and pinning the Ancient in place away from the objective. The Seekers combo-charged into Durthu with the Daemonettes and my opponent targetted the seekers straight away killing all five in one round of combat. Keeper of Secrets with Breathtaker killed a full wound Treelord and then double piled into a branchwych and killed her. The one thing I would say is how long it takes to roll dice on 30 Daemonettes, piling in twice and splitting attacks between two models, can see alot of games with this 'horde meta' dragging on with so many dice being rolled. Got a major victory, extremely fun to use,

  5. Episode 21 - Horde Meta

    Hello and welcome to Episode 21 of the Tales of Sigmar Podcast. As some of you may have seen on Twitter, it's all change on the podcast with both Adam and Dan leaving the team.

In this episode we're covering Steve's history in wargaming, talk current hobby and also do a full segment on the new Horde Meta that seems to be arriving in the General's Handbook 2017 and how to deal with it on the tabletop. As always find us on Twitter: @talesofsigmar @hobgoblinsteve Get the episode here.
  6. Let's chat : Slaanesh

    Giving my Slaanesh first run out tonight at the club against Sylvaneth, going to be running this mainly as I've not had the time to build more exalted chariots. Looking forward to seeing the speed of the army.

    Looking forward to attending my first AGOM in October should be a good one!
  8. Let's chat : Slaanesh

    Gaunt summoner can cast two spells a turn. His own spell chooses a unit within 18 (36 on a balewind) roll a dice for every model in the unit. On a 4+ it's a mortal wound. I'm expecting mass blocks of bloodletters so it would be ideal to clear out waves of them at range.
  9. Let's chat : Slaanesh

    Think I'm aiming to take Slaanesh to Facehammer at the end of the month but I'm struggling on fitting everything I want into the list. Considering either using the Everchosen Allies for access to the Gaunt Summoner and Chaos Familiars or taking Archaon but at 700pts for him and then a Keeper of Secrets that basically 1,000pts on two heroes; Allegiance: Slaanesh Leaders Gaunt Summoner and Chaos Familiars (120) Keeper Of Secrets (280) Daemon Prince Of Slaanesh (160) Herald Of Slaanesh on Exalted Seeker Chariot (160) Battleline 30 x Daemonettes Of Slaanesh (270) 30 x Daemonettes Of Slaanesh (270) 10 x Chaos Marauders (60) - Axes 10 x Chaos Warriors (180) - Hand Weapon & Shield - Mark of Chaos: Slaanesh Units 1 x Exalted Seeker Chariots Of Slaanesh (140) 1 x Exalted Seeker Chariots Of Slaanesh (140) 5 x Seekers Of Slaanesh (120) Scenery Balewind Vortex (100) Total: 2000/2000 Or Allegiance: Slaanesh Leaders Gaunt Summoner and Chaos Familiars (120) Keeper Of Secrets (280) Herald Of Slaanesh on Exalted Seeker Chariot (160) The Masque Of Slaanesh (80) Battleline 30 x Daemonettes Of Slaanesh (270) 30 x Daemonettes Of Slaanesh (270) 1 x Seeker Chariots Of Slaanesh (80) - Slaanesh Battleline (Herald of Slaanesh on Exalted Seeker Chariot General) 10 x Chaos Marauders (60) - Axes - Mark of Chaos: Slaanesh Units 10 x Chaos Chosen (280) - Mark of Chaos: Slaanesh Behemoths Soul Grinder (280) - Mark of Chaos: Slaanesh Scenery Balewind Vortex (100) Total: 1980/2000 or Allegiance: Slaanesh Leaders Archaon (700) Herald Of Slaanesh on Exalted Seeker Chariot (160) Keeper Of Secrets (280) Herald Of Slaanesh on Exalted Seeker Chariot (160) Battleline 30 x Daemonettes Of Slaanesh (270) 30 x Daemonettes Of Slaanesh (270) 1 x Seeker Chariots Of Slaanesh (80) - Slaanesh Battleline (Herald of Slaanesh on Exalted Seeker Chariot General) 10 x Chaos Marauders (60) - Axes - Mark of Chaos: Slaanesh Total: 1980/2000

  12. The Defenders of Colarcanium

    So I thought I’d dabble in doing an army diary in the same vein as the fantastic threads ran by @Chris Tomlin @HobbyHammer and @Paul Buckler with a new project I’m looking forward to doing. The plan is to have a full blown Devoted of Sigmar army but then using the new allies or generic Order Allegiance to add in extra units to represent certain elements of the City of Colarcanium such as the Collegiate Arcane and Stormcast factions. I’ll be honest I don’t see this army being competitive at all (despite a few at the club saying it has potential). This army is mainly a lead up to the Rise of Empires: Border Wars narrative event in February but I’m looking at taking it to a few Matched Play Tournaments in the upcoming months just to have a laugh and try something different on the table. At the moment the army is solely focusing on the Devoted of Sigmar and is going to be looking like this; At the moment I’m putting together the first 70 Flagellants which I'll hopefully have the majority done by the end of this weekend. Thankfully, despite their age, the flagellant models are really nice sculpts and they’re a dream to put together. I’ve already got one War Altar built after purchasing it from @Jimbo and I’ve just picked up another one this week after it finally came back into stock at Games Workshop! I’ve salvaged two unpainted Warrior Priests from my 8th Edition Empire days that I’ll be using and need to pick up a Witch Hunter at some point. Looking forward to running something different, and hopefully something fun. Fingers crossed they don’t get changed too much in General’s Handbook 2017.
  13. AoS podcasts

    We mentioned it in our last episode but if there's anything you want us to cover, or certain features you wish to hear then give us an email and we'll definitely take suggestions on board. Already got a handful that we're talking about!
  14. The Defenders of Colarcanium

    I'd expect they will and hoping they do! I'm expecting most Battleline units (whether generic or Battleline-If...) will get it. In the preview both Clanrats and Stormvermin get it for the Verminus allegiance.
  15. The Defenders of Colarcanium

    Cheers mate! Thank mate. The first batch of models I've left off alot of the extra bits off them. I think I'll do half with all the extra chains and pendants and then half without. In regards to a colour I've not thought about it to be honest, I've got the red on their rags and the Warrior Priests will be in red robes. But apart from that I'm not too sure.
  16. The Defenders of Colarcanium

    So a small update. My ambition of getting the first 70 built over last weekend was probably a bit too ambitious, I've spent the last week digging my whole back garden out so building time has been limited. So far I've got 40 Flagellants and the first War Alter built. I've also sprayed 10 just to do some test schemes on. With 140 men I need a quick and easy scheme that'll work well on mass troops and still look effective on the table. So multiple washes on a Khaki primer is my plan. Still got a couple of highlights and the basing to do but this is what I'm looking at achieveing.
  17. Check you Junk, it's where mine ended up.
  18. The Defenders of Colarcanium

    Yeah I've looked into Freeguild to give me some ranged support though I'm not a fan of the 'fantasy empire' models. I'm considering converting some models up using the Flagellants still as the base model and then adding whatever weapons I need. I've considered the Excelsior but his prayer isn't the best compared to a normal warrior priests who have the same healing prayer and then some proper buff prayers for the flagellants. If I take a Gryph-Hound with him it breaks allegiance too if I didn't want to utilise the allies.
  19. The Defenders of Colarcanium

    That would be amazing, a whole lot of dice being rolled and not much dying haha! I've got a few ideas, want to get the majority of the army built first but thinking of some "unit fillers" of four Flagellants carrying a statue of a stormcast into battle and things like that.
  20. Episode 20 - Squig EGGS

  21. The Defenders of Colarcanium

    There's a local tournament in two weeks time where you don't need painted models. If I push myself I might be able to get it on the tabletop all built for then though that might be pushing it. I'm aiming to get the full 2000pts painted to a tabletop standard for Facehammer at the very end of September hopefully.
  22. Let's Chat: Free Guild

    J Wondering what your thinking of the Decimators are? Unless they can drop where they need to go on the table they're foot slogging at 4" a turn meaning they're not getting anywhere fast. I'd maybe look at dropping the Decimators and making the Greatswords a unit of 20.
  23. Events UK: FaceHammer Grand Tournament 2 (30sep-1Oct)

    If you can get a ticket (I'm pretty sure it's sold out at the moment) and want to borrow an army I'll have a spare one for you to use if you want?
  24. Was looking forward to seeing Braggoth's Beasthammer
