    Calling All Females!

    Well this may be lighting the fuse but we're missing the elephant in the room. My wife and I share loads of 'nerdy' hobbies but Warhammer isn't one of them. The reason for that isn't to do with how representative the fluff or minis are (although seeing yourself in the game is undoubtedly important), but way more to do with the behaviour of the "That Guys" in many stores and clubs. Creepyness, mysogyny and general awful behaviour is really common is unfortunately disproportionately common in our hobby. It's the same with homophobic language too. Unfortunately stores are often pretty poor at dealing with this kind of thing. I know people's income is on the line and nobody wants to drive away customers but, having run sports teams and other clubs in the past, not dealing with toxic individuals is what ultimately hurts your member/customer retention the most. This behaviour drives guys away too, but one thing we often forget is that the creepy behaviour we just find irritating can often feel threatening to women. It's not hyperbole to say many women don't feel comfortable or even safe going into some hobby stores because of the way certain men behave towards them. Nobody is saying there shouldn't be a place for the awkward nerdy guy but basic civility (and basic personal hygiene) towards everyone regardless of gender, age, race etc. shouldn't be too much to ask.

    Yup it's definitely a 40k chaos sorcerer. Sorry Fyreslayers fans.

    I don't know, I think it's pretty well split. We have plenty of female leaders and there's a few ladies in most armies. I don't see them ever splitting it evenly. That said, we also have room for adding more. I was super pumped when they showed the first Female Liberator, she's the main reason I bought Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire. I would love to add some women to my Tzeentch and Khorne armies (Haven't bought Valkia because I don't like finecast/resin). and I'm glad my small set of Slaves to Darkness is getting more ladies to accompany The DarkOath WarQueen with a Warband for Nightvault.

    I think it's safe to say it's probably a new sculpt of this.

    So it is probably new sculpt of Chaos Space Marine (Lord? Sorcerer?) for WHQ 40K.

    The thing along the back of the dragon looks a lot like a wire, so I think it's 40k. Maybe something for blackstone fortress.

  9. Thanks for sharing! The Gav bomb is obviously quite strong, and 20 Evos is pure terrifying. Congrats on the placement! Daughters are also pretty solid for sure, they seem to be a pretty hard counter to SCE as well in some builds. I think shooting might be the best solution to facing them, but Khailebron (sp?) makes that difficult as well. I wasn't talking about Seraphon when discussing that list.

    Were Jabberslythes considered too powerful?

    Gotta say I'm surprised they got nerfed. I've only ever seen my one at any games in my local store- didn't realise people thought they were overpowered! Averag 5 d3 mortal wounds is powerful, but the chance of getting into combat with no wounds is unlikely and even then you were basically paying 120pts for 5 d3 mortal wounds. Tzeentch can pump that out in a load of their spells pretty easy in my experience!

    Its definitely some part of a Flying Grot Drakkar. You heard it here first.

    Which Stormcast Eternals Spells are worth it?

    Great post! A lot to think about when choosing spells.

    AoS 2 - Stormcast Eternals Discussion

    Re: Dracolines The best way I found to use them is a fast hard-hitting anvil of 6 models. Toss them into the enemy army after giving them rerollable saves (cogs) +1 save (Lantern) & Staunch Defender LADrac with Staunch Defender. Keep a LAGC nearby for healing and Cycle. With two Cycle of the Storm, 5 wounds per model, and a 2+ rerollable save they tend to live for at least two turns. With Celestial Blades, Pride Leader, and Empower they do good enough damage that your opponent can't ignore them. While your enemy is dealing with the Dracolines you shoot them down with the ballista core (4 ballistas + ordinator + azyros). It's not the best list, but I think it's the best way to use Dracolines. At 300pt per squad I find them to be inefficient after 6 models.

    The Dark Elves were removed for example. I am talking about allegiances not factions. Of course you can still select models from these factions.

    I say "Alpha legion backpack", as it matches the hydra iconography of Forge world's Alpharius and the bird heads on Thousand sons backpacks

    As much as I love Fyreslayers and duardin (which is "a little less than the loved ones in my life" ) , I think you're all going in the wrong direction. It looks a lot more like a gryph-hound/charger Azyrite avian/feline creature than anything else.

    Damage per wound per point is great but at the end of the day sometimes a big hammer will just do wonders

    AoS 2 - Beasts of Chaos Discussion

    @Kokoshi I was thinking of doing something quite like that, by buying one battalion box of tzeench arcanites and maybe one of the new beastmen start collecting boxes. That would be almost 2k points, especially if you also added an extra beastlord and some ungors.

    Warscroll Builder doesn't really remove features. I can still select things like Khorne Bloodbound or Tzeentch Arcanites! I agree, there are so many things that rule in favor of RAI it would seem strange not to. 1. There are NO BENEFITS to god marks within BoC itself. 2. They made so much emphasis on Marks coming back to beasts in previews and mentioned giving a detachment to other armies both on warhammer community and social media. 3. In matched play, it is completely infeasible to fit in these battalions as allies even at 3000pts. Which is really odd since GW have been pushing for rules that are compatible with Matched Play these days (like Summoning) as opposed to 1.0. 4. BoC cannot be taken as allies anyways.

    Yep, Fyreslayers are a possibility, but it also could be a carnyx for Slaanesh troops (wishful thinking, I know). EDIT: When I look closer it could be a dragon head of Fyreslayer's ship. Man O' War, anyone?

    I’m guessing Darkoath but it does look a bit Fireslayers too. Only leaning towards Darkoath because of the rumours, and I’d be a little surprised to see a second wave of anything (apart from Stormcast) when there are so many other factions needing attention. Something completely new feels more likely to me.

    referred to an old (outdated) FAQ Version 1.2 - as long as there is no new FAQ for AoS 2.0, i would argue they are not affected by modifiers at the moment. treat "roll of 6" like "unmodified roll of 6"

    Yeah it definitely has a norsca or dwarven look, I'm feeling like it might be on the end of a staff. The way the it curves on the "chest" and the features of the head especially the beak makes me think it could easily be shaped sort of like a pseudo symbol of tzeentch, chaos-like but not full on like the disciples. Could also be a representation of a Magmadroth if it is dwarven.

    Calling All Females!

    For me, GW is moving in the right direction with Sacrosanct. The women are part of an army, not a seperate sub-faction or unit, they have more than a single “token” model and they wear pretty much the same armour as the men. They could dial back the chest armour and get rid of the ridiculous “high-heel boots” but I generally like the range and what it represents for GW’s design ethic moving forward. Maybe. For my wife, it’s not an issue unless you make it an issue. When we play Silver Tower, she uses the Warpriest because he comes with a Gryph hound and can heal the party. Gender and representation play no part in her decision making or her appreciation of the models or games. GW’s always going to struggle with this, especially as their consumer base expands and diversifies but they do seem to making progress. You can’t please all of the people all of the time but I do think they’re getting better.
