  1. Let's chat : Khorne!

    Seems to be a lot of these, and these seem to be popular and a central location for general knowledge and chitchat about the titled topic. couldn't see one for bloodbound, may he mistaken. I know there is alot of other topics on bloodbound, but these seem to be a good starting place for new people, Some of the existing topics are hard to locate unless you know what you're looking for. So, let's chat!
  2. Villanous updates

    It has been far far too long since I updated here. There have been some excellent releases recently that have reignited interest in painting. The main theory was that the two Warhammer Quest boxes provide a fairly varied starter set for a small Arcanite force and shouldn't need too much adding to bulk it out a bit more. Anyone that has had the misfortune of reading my threads over on Dakka know that I have lots of ideas and only occasionally get around to fulfilling them all as I'm very easily distracted... so hopefully you can keep me on track with some semi regular posts. I've been experimenting with colours for the Arcanites and the theme appears to have evolved into a combined Chaos force (Tzeentch/Khorne) under the command of a demon known only as the King in Yellow. No-one (least of all me) is quite sure how he has persuaded these two groups to join forces. I have plans for the King, but won't go into them here and now as they need a bit more fleshing out. The prototype Arcanite is this Tzaangor: For the Khorne forces, I've started putting paint to the Gorechosen figures. The yellow of these is actually what started the whole King in Yellow theme. I know there are a couple of other yellow Bloodbound forces on here and really liked the very different take on Khorne, so thought I'd give it a try on one Once he was complete, I needed to find some way to tie him into any other Chaos forces that I did. The Khornate forces are now amore orangey yellow, grey skin tones, black and steel; Tzeentch is a more lemonn-y yellow, purple/blue/turquoise and silver. With those rules now set, I attacked the next most common Slaughterpriest to see if it still flowed through. So, do you think it works?

  4. So i've edited this from a purely Wolves of Ghur PLOG (although i strayed from that quite early on) into a PLOG for all of my various AOS armies and related projects past and present and I want to keep this first post as contents section with links to the various armies: Wolves of Ghur (Khorne Bloodbound) - Pages 1 -3 (ongoing) Duardin - Page 1 (complete) Sylvaneth Page 2 (complete) Beastmen (Brayherd, Warherd, Daemons, Monsters of Chaos) Page 3 (complete...for now) Ogors and Gargants Page 3 (complete)
  5. I've started my very first blog covering my hobby progress. I hope you enjoy the blog as much as I am enjoying the hobby that makes it possible. The Wizard's Workshop is going to focus first on my Khorne Bloodbound force The Bonelords of Khorne. http://wizardsworkshop.wordpress.com It's pretty basic right now. There's still a lot of stuff that I want to add to the blog to make it look better, but there are already a few posts covering my hobby progress. The next few things I want to work on are additional graphics, a fluff section about the Bonelords, links to some of my favorite blogs, etc. I'll also be adding the actual blog posts here to make it easier for people to keep up to date. I'm going to be attaching the first blog post and following posts to this thread in their own posts. Wish me luck, and feel free to visit the blog proper in the mean time! ***** The Bonelords of Khorne are Born I've assembled the majority of my two Bloodbound starter sets for Age of Sigmar, and may I say that these are some of the best chaos models that Games Workshop has ever put out. The only starter models that even come close are the the 40k Chaos Chosen and Chaos Cultists that came with the Dark Vengeance set. For now, I'm just going to talk about the Blood Warriors. I'll be writing another article covering my thoughts on the Bloodreavers, and another on some of the other models later. The sculpting on the Khorne Blood Warrior models have all of the exaggerated depth of detail and sharp lines that I've come to expect from Games Workshop, and personally I find that to be one of my favorite parts of their model lines. One of the major failings that I've seen when working with miniatures from some other companies (especially younger companies) is their details are sculpted without enough depth to really stand out from the rest of the miniature. To be certain, most companies have very talented sculptors who understand the unique differences in small scale sculpting opposed to sculpting in larger scales, but Games Workshop has continued to do a great job of keeping an over-exaggerated style of sculpting in each of their new releases. This style of sculpting allows painting techniques like washes and drybrushing to really stand out in a paintjob. Warning: I'm going to go a bit off track for a second because I want to address something that is closely related to my thoughts on the Blood Warriors. As a hobby focused player I find the idea of duplicate models to be annoying. I feel strongly that each miniature in an army needs to be unique from the rest of the army in some way. One area of sculpting that Games Workshop has really improved on in the past few years is how active their miniatures' poses appear, but the changes they have introduced to make those improvements has caused some other issues. Namely, duplicate models, especially in units with larger than standard unit sizes. The single greatest change that has allowed for these kinds of poses has been the use of the single-pose plastic model. If you compare these new kits to the multi-pose models that have been GW's standard in the past, you can see how they've had to change how they have approached creating their newer models. Single-pose models allow sculptors a degree of freedom that multi-pose models do not. Of course, in order to achieve this freedom they have had to largely abandon the flexibility that the multi-pose models allow players. Multi-pose models allow for far more poses to reduce the chances of duplicates because each part can be placed in a different position. The poses given to the Blood Warrior models are wonderfully dynamic and visually interesting. Each one feels like it's in the middle of combat getting ready to take it's next skull, and where would be a better place to find the devotees of Khorne than in the depth of a pitched battle? Games Workshop's choice to give players single-pose models in their starters has allowed them to produce some very dynamic looking miniatures, but it definitely presents an issue with duplicate models when units made up of minis from multiple starter kits are used. This is certainly nothing new for Games Workshop's starter boxes It took me a long time to decide on a color scheme for the whole warband, and I figured that the Blood Warriors. I'm really tired of painting red as I play Word Bearers for my 40k army, so I didn't want to another mostly red army. I finally settled on a dark bone color for the main color of my Bloodbound. Now, I can't completely paint a Khorne army without some kind of red to honor the god of slaughter and blood, so I'm using red as a spot color for the Khorne symbols. I'm still not sure what color I want to paint their skin. I've thought of painting the skin as lighter tones with hints of blue and purple to contrast against the warm tone of the armor, but I've also been thinking of doing darker skin tones to contrast with the lighter colors of the bone colored armor. I'm also playing around with the idea of painting all of the skin with Blood for the Blood God or Tamia Clear Red so it looks like they are all covered in fresh blood. What to do, what to do. Here's what the beginning of the color scheme looks like on the Lord of Khorne on foot and the Bloodsecrator. I need to work on the lighting in my photo setup, it's a little too dark. I'll add a picture of the Blood Warriors as they currently stand when I fix the lighting. I also grabbed a box of the non-push fit Blood Warriors to see what that kit is like. In short, it's pretty amazing. There are tons of extra bits and some really great sculpts in this box. I'll be assembling these guys with twin Goreaxes and the leader with a Goreglaive rather than the Goreaxe and Gorefist. I'll be able to say more after I've assembled them, so keep an eye out for a post about them. Automatically Appended Next Post: The Conversions Begin After assembling the two Bloodbound starters I was left with an extra Mighty Lord of Khorne, Bloodstoker, and Bloodsecrator. At first I thought about painting them up and selling them off on Ebay. Then I found this lovely article from The Vanus Temple, Age of Sigmar Converted Khorne Models. I highly recommend looking it over, there's a bunch of great articles on all kinds of hobby subjects. The gentleman who runs the website is currently managing a GW store in his area so he's not able to post as much as he did, but his archive is worth digging through. With the inspiration his conversions gave me I was able to have a ton of fun converting my own extras along the same lines. Of course I had to do a little bit of my own thing, but I'm very happy with the results. I kept the same weapons and just switched them from the original Bloodstoker model to the Bloodsecrator. I removed the shoulder armor and loincloth from the cluster of skulls that went over his chest. I used one of the heads from the Wrathmonger kit (another amazing kit that I need to review soon). I used this one because the skin on the lower part of his face has been flayed away to show bare muscle and bone. I has to use some Greenstuff to fill in a gap under his chin, but in the end I think he looks just different enough from both of the original models to stand out on the field. I'm just as pleased with the progress on this conversion even though he's not quite done yet. To be honest he's been a bigger challenge as I had do more extensive surgery to get the parts to fit correctly. Ultimately, I switched out the head of the original Bloodsecrator axe for another axe from the Wrathmonger kit. I wanted this guy to appear just as terrifying as the original model, but show that Khorne's blessing take many forms. Getting the head to fit correctly required me to pin the head so that it rested well above the shoulders. This left a large gap between the chin and the rest of the body. I added a double chin under the helmet and started some basic stringy hair going down the back of his head. I'm going to be adding some more to cover up the areas I cut away the original hair. I honestly wish I had thought this through a bit more and left the original hair, ah well that's the joy of experimentation. (insert picture of the Bloodsecrator Portal of Blood) I also removed the extra bangles from the banner itself to give it a different visual profile. I need to figure out what to add to the banner to Khorne it up some more. For the extra Mighty Lord of Khorne this other article from the one and only Morbak, Arch-Warlord Bogdan Blottrinker has given me some wonderful inspiration for what to do. I have yet to start working on this conversion, but I'll be sure to post up progress as I make it.

  10. On a Path to Glory

    Greetings fellow generals! I'm 27 years old, danish but currently living in Malmö, Sweden. I used to play Warhammer fantasy back in 5th and 6th edition i think (99-03?ish). When I got a little older (15-16yrs) I stopped completely and I didn't touch a mini for the next 10 years. But then on a spring day in 2015 - I don't know exactly why - call of chaos perhaps?? - I felt the need to start a new army. This was only a couple of months prior to the release of Age of Sigmar. To my pleasure - I would read about the glory of Archaon and the End Times. But now a new era was upon us... Age of Sigmar was of course a perfect opportunity for me to re-enter the hobby and start once again from scratch. Now I've spent the last two years on building my Khorne army which now is around 1200 points painted. It's been a bumpy road - I definitely underestimated the amount of work a nicely painted army requires - but this last year I've really found a good rhythm with my painting. Now my army is really starting to take form and I'm going to show it of soon here on TGA. I'm a faithful viewer/listener of Warhammer Weekly - which really helped my a lot in my battle against the grey You'll hear more from me in the future I salute you all Blood for the Blood God! Skulls for the Skull Throne!
  11. An army of Wrathmongers?

    I'm the world's least competitive player but I've been thinking of upping my game and my thoughts have turned to unusual army builds that might have an unexpected competitive edge. It seems to me from what I've read/seen/heard that Wrathmongers can be absolutely devastating, but that competitive players have learned how to deal with them (shoot, avoid) and they're no longer seen as a must-have unit. When people take them it now seems to be in small numbers to buff other units, with no expectation that they will have a major impact in and of themselves. But what about an army composed almost entirely of Wrathmongers? Wouldn't that be a devastating force? Yes, they would die fairly easily and many of them might not even make it into combat, but the ones that do could generate a huge amount of self-inflicted damage against the opposing army. I'm thinking mutually-assured destruction. I imagine you'd need to have a few cheap battleline units hanging back to claim objectives, plus a Might Lord and a Bloodstoker to help them get into combat, and the obligatory Bloodsecrator. Could this work?
  12. Hello there, very simple question but the answer is maybe not that easy. Yesterday i played with an Exalted Deathbringer, he was not my general, and I gave him the mark of the destroyer (the object which allow him to double his attacks) My exalted was in combat, within 12 inches of my general, which allows him to have +2 attack + My unit of wrathmonger was within 3 inches (funny combo ) My question is how many attacks do I have? (5 + 2 + 1) x 2 = 16 (5 x 2) + 2 + 1 = 13 The difference is not so big, but it can be important in a game. Thank you for your help!
  13. I would really appreciate some feedback and thoughts on the following list. I am just starting out, have played a coupleof games with slight variations of this list and was wondering if you have any suggestions for making it better. Maybe a bit cheesy (but at this point i am not much of a match for my regular opponents).. a second secrator? Dark fest blood secrator blood stoker mighty lord of khorne scyla slaughterpriest 3x 20 bloodreavers (-1 rend ones) 3 mighty skullcrushers 5 wrathmongers 1 korgorath My findings: enough targets for my opponent to shoot at (my local gaming group consists of a lot of shooting) and they tend to focus on the skullcrushers or my mighty lord (which i think is fine, because then more reavers make it into combat). Other times they focus on the reavers, which results in me having some ok characters left. Still not sure on the reavers, 3x20 or 1x20 and the rest in 10 man squads. scyla is so much fun to play! He normally lasts the game and can dish out a lot of damage, especially when wounded. And the 6" pile in is awesome. wrathmongers... are fun, great models My problem;: in most games my reavers tend to get shot into oblivion. In my most recent game i only had a unit of 20 left after turn 1... and also lost my skullcrushers (my opponent had the first turn and shot them all down). And without the opportunity to get my banner down... do you have any suggestions to make this list stronger? I must say that i really like the bloodreaver models and once they get into combat... awesome. tips on artifacts? Recently gave my lord reroll to wound and hit with the extra khorne command ability and artefact.
  14. Hello yall, I went and bought my first Bloodbound minis on a whim (found the Easy to Build Bloodreavers at 6€!). Now I'm looking for alternative color schemes to try out on these 5 models: I want to try the Bonearmor look that I saw here by uselesswizard. Looks gorgeous! Also want to try an Iron Horde look that I saw here by Stealth_Hobo. Also very pretty. Any other schemes other then the classic Brass + Red that is the standard for Khorne? Ty in advance - Munch
  15. Khorne Army - Where next?

    I am looking to add a couple more units to my army so any advice on what I should buy next to increase the overall performance of the army listed below is much appreciated. This is my current collection which I use to select my army list on the day (Usually a 1500 point game): Hero's: Mighty Lord of Khorne, Aspiring Deathbringer, Exhaulted Deathbringer, SlaughterPriests x2, Skullgrinder, Demon Prince, Bloodstoker, Bloodsecretor Battleline: Units: 15 Blood Warriors, 20 Bloodreavers, 10 Bloodletters Units: 5 Skullreapers, 1 Khorgorath, 3 Bloodcrushers, 1 skullcannon A couple of ideas Iv'e been playing with; A new SlaughterPriest (For the Gore Pilgrims), 5 More Skullreapers (Allows for another battalion, the name escapes me) or maybe a large centre piece hero - possibly a Bloodthirster or even Archaon!
  16. My Yellow Bloodbound

    So I've always had a bit of a soft spot for Khornate Chaos Warriors as they always had some really badass looking models but I'd always managed to resist buying into them, until now. With the arrival of Silver Tower came the perfect excuse to pickup one of the meanest looking dudes of recent times... Slaughterpriest with Hackblade and Wrath-hammer I've always shied away from blood effects but as I've decided not to use a traditional red colour scheme on this model it seemed like the perfect opportunity to have a go at some. This model is still work in progress and I'd love to hear any feedback or suggestions regarding the paintjob/colour choices. I still need to highlight the skin and I intend to add a load more BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD splattered around but just wanted to get everything else right before I do so. I'm a little worried there might be a bit too much of the greenyblue on the model or maybe it's too bright a blue, (I could make it darker). I'm considering some freehand on the cloth (maybe just a line or some Skaveny triangle pattern) but I'm not sure. I wanted the brass to be kinda a realistic looking pale and greeny looking. I could add some Nihilakh Oxide or just a bit more black to it, but again I'm not sure. I am pretty excited about Bloodbound at the moment, I do have the other Slaughterpriest from the WHQ Mighty Heros expansion and I also have the AoS starter set models so I'd may do a small army in the same colourscheme. Thanks for looking.
  17. _____Snaeper's Mini-Blog and Forum_____ For Khorne! Chaos! And the good of the forum! So I think I've made enough threads in this section to warrant me making a mega-thread to keep my stuff contained. For those of you that don't know, I play both mortal and daemon flavors of Khorne, as well as some Slaves to Darkness with a few other generic Chaos Monsters and Daemons mixed in! I have a sizable collection at this point and plan to continue to expand the model count mostly because my friends/game group field other armies and/or have interest in doing so. I also just happen to like Khorne flavored stuff as well as the generic Chaos range. I plan on using this thread to ask questions, play with theoryhammer, mathhammer and practicalhammer, as well as discuss tactics and results of games that I play with my army. I'm also open to those of you who might have more limited ranges to post lists that you're interested in so that I might try them out for you and let you know how they run against a certain army.

  19. [Review] Blades of Khorne

    Hi guys, since I hope we all have the Blades of Khorne book now I decided to do a review! This review is allready shorter as I initially planned but still a massive heap of text, so be certain to grab yourself a nice cup of coffee or skip it altogether. Narrative Play I can highly recommend Blades of Khorne to any Khorne fan, even to 40K players. It feels really good to have all the minions of Khorne largely represented into one book, those being Khorne Bloodbound and Khorne Daemons. While it would have been awesome to see Khorne Mortals included into this book aswell I think we all can see the hints GW is leaving us in terms of that. I really like about the cover of the book is that it gives us a great striking blood red Bloodletter, with some great Khorne models in the background, such as the Mighty Khorne Lord, Khorgorath and even a Bloodthirster. As a fan of Khorne since my start in the game this book holds a special place in my heart. The artwork and lore is also really again made for the Khorne fans, fans that do not have to restrict themselves to the Bloodbound look at this point and can really blend as they please while getting rewarded by it! I personally love the fact that his struggle with Slaanesh is mentioned, one of the reasons as to why I like it so much is once again because it harkens back to the great days of where the Slaves to Darkness WFB/40K/RPG was used as the Chaotic bible for Khorne and Slaanesh. For the Slaanesh fans I can only hope that he will eventually make his return to the Age of Sigmar aswell. What I like the most arguably is that the lore tone set by this book is different from Khorne Bloodbound, a book that for me personally focused too much on illogical lore or lore that was very clearly made up for a younger audience. I understand that an axe of Khorne is made to kill, I really don't need to read 101 times that it's ideal for loppin' heads. Because of this improved lore in general the narative for me personally is spot on. It's explained into detail how the armies of Khorne collect and are out for pure destruction and not only fanaticial skull collectors. Which to me again is a large improvement. The designs (exclusively) available for Narrative Play also really match what I hoped Blades of Khorne would offer us. All of the Reward Tables are very cool and interact very well with the Blood Tithe point system, while many of the Artefacts or Command Traits do not. Keep in mind that Narrative Play really is there to allow you to do whatever you want in terms of designs, there is no good or bad, just a personal style and a really deep pool of choices. Blades of Khorne has a ton of fun and powerful combinations, keep in mind that the best way to use them is to level them with your opponents game intends. Matched Play All options that are there for Matched Play are also available to Narrative Play however I think it's fair to say that Matched Play usually refers to the competative side of things. So from this point on the review will continue to focus on that aspect of the game. Allegiance Where the Khorne Allegiance previously was only seen in specialized Allegiances such as Khorne Bloodbound Allegiance or Khorne Daemon Allegiance the Khorne Allegiance by itself is now a real thing and generates some awesome Battle Traits, Command Traits, Artefacts of Power (and Daemonic Gifts, who are also Artefacts of Power) and Blood Blessings. !! All these mentioned in the Blades of Khorne Book are only available to armies who have chosen the Khorne Allegiance. An army that has the Khorne Allegiance can also have the specialized Allegiance such as Khorne Bloodbound or Khorne Daemon. !! In order to have the Khorne Allegiance you must have Khorne starting units or units who can recieve the Khorne keyword during set up and Khorne Battalions. Khorne Allegiance still allows for non-starting unit to be of any Keyword. !! Khorne Bloodbound Battalions are also Khorne Battalions but not all Khorne Battalions are Khorne Bloodbound Battalions! !! Khorne Bloodbound or Khorne Daemon Allegiance requires all your units to be Khorne and respectively Bloodbound or Daemon. Battle Traits (Blood for the Bloodgod! and Blood Tithe points) The ammount of flavour and power this gives the Khorne army is truely awesome. I expect to often use 1,2,3,4 and if the game allows it 7. !! Blood Tithe points can be expended at any point in either player’s hero phase, but only once per phase. From my perspective the biggest gain we have from the Battle Trait is that we can now use a ton of Command Abilities quite easily which significantly improves the worth of many of our cheaper Bloodbound Heros. As a fan of the Gorechosen set (less about the game) I'm very happy that GW granted these Heroes a competative functional role as many of their Command Abilities are actually quite good, their profile frames just don't scream 'this model wants to be your General'. Command Traits (Bloodbound, Daemon and Mortal) A lot of the Command Traits have great purpose! Again I think there is a lot to be said for many of them. I really like how most of them make our Generals amazing in melee combat and a true force to be feared. !! Command Traits are not Command Abilities, it's easy to confuse them, I know I almost did in the past Artefacts of Power (Murderous Artefatcs, Banners of Khorne, Trophies of War, Daemonic Weapons, Daemonic Adornments) As always an amazing selection, much more as I'd hoped for. Using which is a matter of personal preforance, I know I'm a huge fan of Gorecleaver, Banner of Rage, Mark of the Destroyer, Behemoth's Bane and The Crimson Crown. You could say they are my favourites within each of the Artefacts of Power lists. !! All these are Artefacts of Power and each Hero can only have one Artefact of Power but you can have multiple heroes with the same (one) Artefact of Power. Blood Blessings of Khorne Like the way the Blood Tithe points works well for cheaper Heroes the Slaughterpriest are now truely worthy to consider. Especially with the Gore Pilgrims as a Battalion for your army. !! Currently Prayers are not worded the same way as Spells but there are House-rules who do have it worded that they work in the same way. I do have to say that there is one big thing I'm missing for these Blood Blessings and that's the option to somehow Summon... I personally don't miss it but it does still feel strange that you'd need a Chaos Wizard to Summon Khorne Daemons. We have the technical option to use 8 Blood Tithe points for that but in general that doesn't feel like the type of design that's useful for competative play. Warscrolls One of the quick leaks that came out is that the Warscroll changes where kept to a minimum. If you havn't picked up Blades of Khorne and put your Khorne Bloodbound book next to it it's very important to be aware of the many changes that are going on! I decided to review and mention the changes together. Many of the Battalions seem really good and it's truely up to anyone to see and use as they please. I don't feel the book contains any bad Battalions. Some are a bit more difficult to include as others but overall speaking there is nothing sticking out as a competative must-have. I think the advantage of having a lot of good Battalions just helps out. What is kind of important to note here is that 7 former Khorne Bloodbound Battalions changed to Khorne Battalions. For several of the larger Battalions (such as Goretide) this does matter. While the wording isn't extremely clear be aware that Battalions, even if they are completely comprimised of Daemon or Bloodbound models, do not suddenly gain the Daemon or Bloodbound Keyword. !! There are still 2 Khorne Bloodbound Battalions left, those are Goreblade Warband and Bloodstorm (for non-Matched play we also have Redblade Vanguard). All other former Khorne Bloodbound Battalions are now Khorne Battalions. In my opinion all Units seem equally interesting also. The most intresting part Khorne armies have to offer in my opinion is that they do reward Multiple Small Units with the Blood Tithe point system but at the same time due to how Slaughterpriests, Bloodcrushers and Skullcrushers are improved also still offer a lot of options to go for Fewer Big Units. The choice is really there for anyone to combine and match what kind of army they visually like. There is very little that would stop making it work. The only rule of tumb I have is that certain Heroes work better with the MSU approach while others work better with the FBU approach. Wording and Keyword Changes Without going too deep into the way these will affect rules a lot of the wording on several models is changed. What I and many others hope is that we will see how this affects the army as a whole. The whole list of changes: Skarbrand - Total Carnage clarification example added Bloodcrushers - Murderous Charge has been rewritten and now has an affect for units with 6 models aswell - Summon Bloodcrushers has become easier to do and allows you to summon 3 or 6 Bloodbound - BLOODBOUND Keyword is granted to all models formerly found in the Bloodbound Battletome Mighty Lord of Khorne - Collar of Khorne has been rewritten and now only allows for one unbinding - Gorelord has been rewritten and now doesn't require the model to be the general Bloodsecrator - Rage of Khorne has been rewritten (nothing states that it cannot stack) Lord of Khorne on Juggernaut - Blood Stampede has been rewritten and now doesn't require the model to be the general Exalted Deathrbinger (both) - Brutal Command has been rewritten and now doesn't require the model to be the general Aspiring Deathrbinger (both) - Slaughter Incarnate has been rewritten and now doesn't require the model to be the general Bloodstoker - Whipped to Fury has been rewritten (nothing states it cannot stack) Bloodreavers - Have been re-costed - Have gained a 6+ Armour save Mighty Skullcrushers - Murderous Charge has been rewritten and now has an affect for units with 6 models aswel Scyla Anfingrimm - Has lost MONSTER Keyword Khorgoraths - Have been re-costed - Now deal 2 damage with Claws and Fangs Battalions - Blood Host of Khorne changed from being a Daemons of Khorne Battalion to being a Khorne Battalion - Bloodbound Warhorde changed from being a Khorne Bloodbound Battalion to being a Khorne Battalion - Bloodbound Warband changed from being a Khorne Bloodbound Battalion to being a Khorne Battalion - Brass Stampede changed from being a Khorne Bloodbound Battalion to being a Khorne Battalion - Dark Feast changed from being a Khorne Bloodbound Battalion to being a Khorne Battalion - Red Headsmen changed from being a Khorne Bloodbound Battalion to being a Khorne Battalion - Skulltake changed from being a Khorne Bloodbound Battalion to being a Khorne Battalion - The Gorechosen changed from being a Khorne Bloodbound Battalion to being a Khorne Battalion Overall speaking all the models in Khorne have drastically improved and in a few cases this has gone in combination with a small cost increase, those being Bloodreavers and Khorgoraths. The overall advantages gained here is that there still is nothing written about the ´not stacking of abilities´ seen on the Bloodsecrator or Bloodstoker. All Mortal Bloodbound Command Abilities have also lost the requirement that forces them to be a general in order to use it. Because of how easy it is to obtain 1 Blood Tithe point and use it for a (non-general) Command Ability the tactical and competative gain is massive. I'm looking very much forward to test out all the changes soon! I hope that this review was helpful to: 1. Specifically mention some reminders on the drastical effects of the Khorne Allegiance 2. Cover all the changes and see how the vast mayority of them has made the Khorne army significantly better as before Happy gaming!

  20. Hi guys, So started AoS recently and have a vast pre AoS chaos army. As from my other thread about nurgle i want to make a mono khorne 2000pts list, what i got ao far is basically a gore pilgrams and brass stampede formation. Any ideas on what to add with the left over points? Is it worth sticking to bloodbound? Or will any khorne do with blood letters and or slave units? Is it wort putting some reavers in? Skullreapers or wrath mongers? Any heroes that will make a differance? List so far.

  21. Khorne Bloodbound Allegiance?

    Hi there, I've got a question. On page 152 of Blades of Khorne, under notes for the Mighty Skullcrushers it says "Battleline if army has KHORNE BLOODBOUND allegiance and its general is a Lord of Khorne on Juggernaut". Now, this seems pretty straight forward. Effectively Mighty Skullcrushers can't be battleline if you bring units that don't have the KHORNE and BLOODBOUND keywords. It seems odd though, as Skaarac is a no-go in this case. As are all KHORNE DAEMONS. Odd, but I can accept that. Here's where it gets weird: On page 78 the ALLEGIANCE sidebar says: Okay, so the army can be either KHORNE or BLOODBOUND? Or can't we have a BLOODBOUND allegiance? If we can't, then the note for the Mighty Skullcrushers makes no sense. But okay, I'm assuming we can. And here's comes the kicker. Page 78 also says: That effectively means that blood tithe is only available to KHORNE armies - not BLOODBOUND armies. And we can only choose one. So, my question is as follows: How does it make sense that you need to have the BLOODBOUND allegiance to field Mighty Skullcrushers as battleline, but you must have the KHORNE allegiance to generate blood tithe? Also KHORNE and BLOODBOUND are separate keywords. So how is a KHORNE BLOODBOUND allegiance even possible? By that logic you could field a CHAOS KHORNE army, a CHAOS BLOODBOUND army, or even a MORTAL BLOODBOUND army as well. None of which would qualify for blood tithe. I can't wait for an updated FAQ.
  22. Today, I'm very pleased to share that my army "The Wolf and the Rat" just hit their 2000pts of painted minis target and I can more or less draw a line under this army as "completed." This will undoubtedly prove to be a fabrication as the urge to add new guys will eventually hit me, though the limiting factor will now be how much space is left in my storage foam. More Bloodletters and Blood Warriors would be nice to mix things up, and theres no shortage of awesome models to paint that would fit this theme - Rat Ogors, Slaughterbrutes, Flesh Hounds, and hey, I hear Khorgoraths are getting a bit of a buff in the new Battletome! But enough about my screaming wallet, this is supposed to be about me finishing this damn army. Skritt's Hunting Pack (Wolf Rats) Awesome miniatures, and a lot bigger than I expected. In fact, I actually expected the Skin Wolves to turn out a little bigger and these guys to be a little smaller. I gave them the same two tone grass and animal bones/skulls/warpstone crystals as the Wolves, which I really like on these bigger base minis. For the paint job, I wanted them to have a cohesiveness with the Skin Wolves, but with a few distinctions. In the ended, I chose to paint them with the same sort of grey/brown fur as I gave the Skin Wolves, but with a ratty pink flesh instead of the blue/grey. One key distinction is their armour/adornments are red, like the Wrathmongers, as opposed to the bone white of the 'enlightened' - like the Wrathmongers, they're feral and vicious and useful in a fight, but not considered 'people' in the way the Skin Wolves (perhaps foolishly) are. Skaarakh, The Fang of Khorne I did a thing with this guy, which you might notice if you saw him in his primed-only state in the last photo, and that's that I hacked off his axe hand, twisted it and re-pinned it back in place. The reason for this was my 'dynamic pose' I was going for looked really weird, and the more I kind of pictured myself with my arm outstretched like that, the more it seemed unnatural. I had originally wanted him kind of pointing the axe in a challenge, but reposing white metal is difficult, and in the end I realised his arm would make a lot more sense if he was at the end of a big arcing swing of the axe, so that's sorta what I went for. If you didn't see my previous post, then what you're looking at is an old, white metal Bloodthirster. I have no real stylistic reason for using him, other than I had one lying around at my parents house from back when I played World Eaters in 3rd Ed 40K when I was 13, and using him over buying a new plastic kit saved me like £50. He was obviously pretty dated looking though, so I made a few adjustments. The key ones were giving him a new head from the plastic Bloodthirster kits (which just look a zillion times better), reposing his arms to look a little more dynamic and a little less like the old style where everyone stood in that same unnatural pose, and finally I decided to go nuts and give him a giant green stuff fur cloak, because the new style Bloodthirsters are a little more burly than the skinny, boney style of old and I wanted a thematic way of bulking him up a little. In order to make the cloak not look weird over the wings, I added some beaten brass spiked collar pauldron things, that I personally think turned out pretty good for my first major green stuff endevour. I'm particularly pleased with the bulging vein on his axe arm bicep that I used to cover up some of the fingerprinting and roughness. Oh, and I shaved off the little stars where his nipples would be, because I have no idea what they were thinking with that design choice. As with my Bloodletters, I went for a slimy albino look on this one as well, and I'm again pretty happy with how he turned out; I'm getting a little more confident in painting whites, which is something that I absolutely failed at 6 months ago when I was starting out again after my decade long hiatus. There's no point in painting bone armour on a white guy, but I wasn't really that keen on red armour either, so I decided to make his breastplate black, and just get a little dark red on the cloak lining and the whip (and the blood effects, obviously!), and I'm really happy with the overall result. Basewise, he's on the same Secret Weapon Miniatures sculpted resin lava base as my Lord of Khorne of Juggernaut, which I think looks great. I also added the one remaining huge rock and animal skull piece to it to tie him in a little with the Skin Wolves and Wolf Rats. I was originally planning on sticking a Fenrisian Wolf on the base with him, like I'm planning to do to my aforementioned Lord of Khorne, but I'm not 100% he really needs it anymore, what with everything else going on. I'm still working on the lore, but I'm starting to think that 'he' might actually be a 'she' considering the weirdly low cut and chesty armour and more slender build compared to the modern Bloodthirster design. Hopefully I'll have that figured out at some point, and I'll include it with a big full-army photo in a future blog post. Conclusion and Army List And that wraps up my 2000pts of The Wolf and the Rat! As I said before, I have no immediate plans to expand - it'd be nice to take a break once I finish my two 2000pts armies and work on something smaller scale like Blood Bowl or Malifaux for a while - but ****** if I'm not tempted to fill up the (limited) free space in my BattleFoam for these guys by rounding out my two units of Blood Warriors and Bloodletters. Beyond that pipe dream, I have plans to add some furry tabards and pelts to the Blood Warriors and Bloodletters that I already have, but I'll just edit them in my original post. Here's my final, 2000pts list that I'm planning on running these guys as. Note that this list isn't built to win any tournaments. I tend to build armies around what models I want, how I can tie a theme/narrative to them, and work from there. I don't know how many games I'll actually win with this list, but it looks cool and it's got a lot of fun things to play and a lot of weird mismashed synergies and that's what's important to me. If I ever consider what I include from a rules perspective, it's mostly to balance against my other armies so that I can fun games using only my models, should I want to demonstrate to friends, etc. Thanks for reading! The Wolf and the Rat - 1960/2000pts (pre new Battletome) Heroes: The White Wolf (Mighty Lord of Khorne OR Lord of Khorne on Juggernaut) - 140pts Skritt Ashenfang (Skaven Warlord on Brood Horror) - 200pts Skaarakh, Fang of Khorne (Bloodthirster of Unfettered Fury) - 300pts Tanaris Redmaw (Bloodsecrator) - 120pts Battleline: The Red Hunt (Blood Warriors x 5) - 100pts The Enlightened (Blood Warriors x 5) - 100pts The Bloodhounds (Bloodreavers x 20) - 120pts The Bloodied Teeth of Skaarakh (Bloodletters x 20) - 200pts The Rabid (Wrathmongers x 5) - 180pts The Blessed (Skin Wolves x 3) - 120pts The Ashenfangs (Stormvermin x 20) - 280pts Skritt's Hunting Pack (Wolf Rats x 5) - 100pts

  25. Hello everyone, After 6 years out of the hobby I've decided to get back into it and stay motivated by starting this Blog. Having never actually made the jump into fantasy, Age of Sigmar has drawn me in, plus the Kharadron Overlords have really taken my interest. However, having never played the 'bad guys' I've decided to build myself a Khorne Bloodbound army. The aim is to attempt to add, build and paint a new unit/box each month, primarily to actually focus on building a complete & painted force. So without further ado, the first WIP model and test of the general colour scheme: This is the first model I've painted in about 6 years. The general palette revolves around reds/purples, with a grey stone/ snow base For the Hackblade and Wrath-hammer I've attempted to go for an obsidian style with purple hints. The Hackblade I'm pretty happy with although might still bring in a lighter purple highlight on the edges before coating it in gloss. For the Wrath-hammer I'm not as taken on, I think its a bit too flat at the moment though don't really know where to take it next. I'm also in two minds as to whether to bring in another layer of highlights, going to a silver for the gold/brass edges and a lighter red/orange for the edges of the armour. I'll try and take some better photos later, but for now any comments and criticisms anyone has are more than welcome. AC
