  1. Ok, so, Order Draconis with Allies under the new GHB. Having had a think on what I want to do in AoS as a new player I realised I would be doing myself a complete injustice if I didn't play with Dragons and with lots of Cavalry, hence OD. Models seem to be in short supply, but I would love to have a legacy army full of the miniatures I used to really like before embracing whatever comes next for the Highborn. In terms of an army, what would you suggest? I'm very keen on avoiding the cheese, so perhaps a Dragonlord and an allied Drakeseer with *alot* of Dragon Blades to flood the enemy with, rounded out with Mounted Dragon Nobles and a further allied horse-mounted Archmage? Points wise, Dragon Blades seem to have had a massive points break to just 140pts for 5 of them, while the battalion seems not worthwhile at its points cost? Your thoughts, comments and potential army lists are all welcome
  2. Hey everyone, I am choosing my first (ever, this is my first wargame) army right now, and i was wondering how many points does the start collecting! tzeentch give me? Also could fit a Lord of change get to around 1000 points with it? And which book should I buy first?Should I get the generals handbook and just use the normal chaos abilities or should I buy the tzeentch book and save my money to buy the Handbook 2 weeks later? Thank you!
  3. I found an army painter Black Primer for a cheaper price then the GW one, so I was wondering do they have the same effect?
  4. What is a better purchase for Khorne?

    I have a quick question. If I buy the starter box for aos and want to expand my Khorne to 1k points, is it worth it to take a bloodthirster, soul grinder or start collecting Daemons Of Khorne?
  5. Need help-first army death

    Hey guys I have a question about painting and army building. Currently i can't choose between Start collecting flesheater-courts or start collecting beastclaw raiders. I love both army's looks and playing style, all though i am not sure which one is harder to paint. I know the points for both armies. If it's not too much, it would be reeally nice if you could show me the size of the miniatures (picture) in comparison to a hand. Also which army is the more expansive to collect, because BCR have a very small model count, while FEC units can be converted to a bunch of things (start collecting box alone has a huge amount of choices.) Thank you for reading!
  6. Hey, guys just a quick question: what is the size of KO? I am a new player and I have a problem with figuring out miniature sizes, especially KO size because my store doesn't have them on display yet. If you could show me one arkanaut beside a pot of base paint (or if possible besides a primaris space marine). Also if possible could you show me a size of one of their ships (in comparison to a hand) Thanks!
  7. Hey guys currently I am stuck beetwen BCR and FEC. Both look AWESOME and fun to paint, andi was wondering which is better right now. (also could you give a picture of an of them (in comparison to a hand))

  10. Hey guys justa quick question: Whatts the size of a terrorgheist?i am thinking about starting AOS with one start collecting box and i am confused about the size of a terrorgheist If anyone could send me a picture comparing it to a hand it would be great.
  11. So this year me and my family moved to Paris and I accidentally bumped on Games Workshop on the internet.I saw there are a few shops in Paris near me so I decided to give it a go.I bought an essentials kit and a few space marines (the starter kit of 3) so i could learn to paint, as well as getting started with age of sigmar (book). SO, in September it's my birthday and i was thinking about buying a start collecting box and that's where the problem starts. I like the beastclaw raiders a lot (also slaves to darkness and seraphon), but i was worried that I may not have the skill to paint them. Of course I don't have enough money or skill to go with white, so i was a thinking about a brown color scheme. (probably mournfang brown with some drybrushing) I probably have enough paint from my citadel essentials box set to paint ogres and I also heard they are cheaper to collect because they have a very small army. So are beastclaw raiders a good choice for a first army or do you think i should buy something like slaves to darkness or seraphon? ( Also if it's not too much could you show me a beastclaw model ( and a carnosaur if you have him) in comparison to a hand picture because i am not sure of the size) Thank you for reading.
  12. Just a quick question: i looked up on games workshop website for warscrolls for my flesheaters army, and I saw that the warscrolls aren't the same as in the battletomb. Is there a way i can get them for free or a bundle or do I have to buy a battletomb?

  16. Hi guys, I'm just starting age of sigmar and i don't know what to choose : I like slaves to darkness and beastclaw raiders, because i don't know which one is more expansive to collect. I know beastclaw raiders starting box is around 800 points, so if anyone knows the points of slaves to darkness box please tell me. Also if anyone here has an army could (if it's not too much) show me a picture of the size of the models, because i don't know that as well Thank you for reading
  17. Hello all! After admiring AOS from afar for a while now I've finally taken the plunge and bought a model, an IronJawz Megaboss to be precise (I just thought it looked awesome.) Unfortunately herein lies my problem... I have no idea how to build a decent army around him!!! I'm not fussed about it being incredibly optimized, I would just like to avoid looking completely clueless when I go to my local store for my first skirmish! So, sticking with the 'rule of cool' and (I think) including enough Battleline units for a 1000 point army I have come up with this list of mixed IronJawz/Ogors Megaboss: 140 Weirdnob Shaman: 120 Ogors x3: 120 Ogorsx3: 120 Gargant: 180 Fellwater Troggoths x3: 200 Gorger x2: 120 = 1000 Points Is this army completely useless? I like the idea of a monstrous ragtag group blasting round the countryside and tearing s**t up! I also like: IronJawz Brutes: Ironguts Any other Troggoth The Ogor grots. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance!
  18. New Palyer: Spire of Dawn and Battalions

    Hello, I am a new AoS Player and trying to generate a simple list from my old Island of Blood Box. I understand, that there is this new Spire of Dawn Box and this Battalion Formation. How does all this work exactly ? Can I add any other units to this army while using this battalion - but they would not benefit from the extra rules? I have a unit of the High Elves Dragonprinces - whatever they are called now Would I be able to add this to this army? How can I add the Mage and Swordmasters to this list when I am trying to build it in Azyr App? If I choose Swifthawk Agents and the Battalion, I still can not add Archmage and Swordmasters. What am I doing wrong? These are my very first lists, so I have much to learn hehe
  19. Hey all! Been out of the game since AoS dropped, so I wanted to get some advice for building a thematic and effective Death army. I'm basing it off Luthor Harkon's Zombie Pirates (even if he didn't make it to the new setting). I have a good chunk of assembled and undercoated models on square WFB bases, which I'm starting to swap to rounds: - 2 Vampires on foot - 1 Necromancer - 30 Skeletons - 100-ish Zombies - 1 Corpse Cart - 10 Dire Wolves - 5 Bat Swarms - 6 Fell Bats - 1 Kharibdyss I intended to use the Kharibdyss as a Terrorgheist, representing an "animated hulk" of the depths. I want to add a Forge World Merwyrm as a second animated hulk, perhaps counting as a Zombie Dragon. I also have a few Empire cannons/mortars, which I wanted to use as Screaming Skull Catapults. I recently checked the Legacy Warscrolls, and I'm contemplating using Konrad. On Carstein's rules to represent Luthor Harkon. Any ideas or recommendations? I'm pretty keen to get my mates into AoS finally. Thanks in advance!
  20. Howdy folks! Long time Lizardman from the World that Was, relatively new Seraphon in the mortal realms. I'm poke of the NEOs coordinating the COALESCENCE event in my local area (Orlando, FL).

  21. Hello all

    Hi all, No more lurking. Briefly played TK in '97, but was overwhelmed by painting and rules. Didn't last long. After having passed the GW store here in Copenhagen, me and my son just went in for a peek. With new rules and awesome new miniatures, we we're both hooked. Also, it was three days to Christmas, so..... I play Death, he's gunning for Destruction. I just got another one -kid that is - and am spending some time at home, which means a lot of painting time for me. So it's all coming along. We're based in Copehagen, Denmark.. Cheers T
  22. Hey guys. I´m fairly new to AoS, I´ve been building some Ironjawz in the last couple months. As my units are finally coming together, I´ve been thinking about a 1k list and would appreaciate your opinions. Here´s what I have partially built and painted: 1 Megaboss on foot 1 Wierdnob shaman 2 warchanters 1 x 10 Ardboyz (6 big choppas, including drummer, banner and boss, and 4 shields) 2 x 5 brutes (3 dual chopas, 1 gore hacka and boss klaw) 2 x 3 Gore gruntas (pig choppas) 1 Gargant As I want a 1k list, what I came up with is: Leaders Orruk Megaboss (140) - General - Trait: Ravager - Artefact: Battle Brew Orruk Warchanter (80) Orruk Warchanter (80) Units Orruk Ardboys x 10 (180) Orruk Brutes x 5 (180) Orruk Brutes x 5 (180) Battalions Ironfist (60) Total: 900 My other option is to change 1 warchanter for the Wierdnob in order to use foot of gork. I also considered using Bellowing Tyrant to get a better chance of hitting things, especially if the shaman goes to the field, but I think Ravager would be better for mobility. What are your thoughts?
  23. Age of Skeptics Part 1 Introduction

    A four-page rulebook, bonuses to your roll if you have a moustache, no points values, all the lore that many of us have grown up with gone. Even as a lifetime Games Workshop fan (and ex GW staffer), I was very skeptical of Games Workshop's Age of Sigmar (which will now be referred to as AoS) when it was released, and for a long time afterwards. The development that was apparent in the build up to the release of the Generals Handbook, which would bring points values back to the game, had really sparked my interest. Knowing that during this development Games Workshop had been talking to some of the leading independent tournament organisers in the country (who's independent points systems were being used already by our locals) allowed me to hope that a return to organised play, community involvement and maybe even an attempt at balance was on the cards. Points, coverage and and events GW doing good! Since I decided that I was going to take the plunge into AoS, I have not been disappointed. Tournaments at Warhammer World with modern event coverage, no huge balance issues so far, and most of all a huge boom in the number of people playing - clearly I'm not the only one who's excited! The only issue I had was what army I was going to play... One thing that has never been in doubt since AoS launched was how good the new models are! Stormcast, Fyreslayers and huge monsters of all varieties turned my head but one model really nailed it for me and ultimately was what made my choice for me; the Ironjawz Maw-Krusha. Ever since we got them in stock at JustPlay I'd been eyeing it on the shelf, so that was me playing Destruction! Just look at all these wonderful monsters! With that decided, please join me for my upcoming blog series on AoS both friendly and competitive! In the next article I'll be talking about my first army list, what units I selected and how/why I made that choice. Ritchie
