    My army fluff is pretty much a human sigmarite kingdom corrupted by mannfred von carstein to bend to his will(mainly) and nagash's will. I am planning to develop it more.

    Send help. Bought these for less than half price off a guy! Such an amazing score. This brings my TK horde up to 50 Tomb Guard 15 Chariots and a bucketload of other stuff. I'm a little awestruck ATM. Just wanted to share. Looks like I'm shelving a lot of other projects for a while...

    Now that the General's Handbook have been spoiled, I was looking at creating some Matched Play lists, but I am in doubt on what to do about battleline units. I am primarily interested in Deathrattle, but going for Allegiance: Deathrattle does not seem feasible. So I am wondering if taking just 3 units of Skeleton Warriors is a good choice? I have read other comments saying that 10 skeleton warriors are too small a unit, and that you need to take them in groups of 20. But if you need 3 battleline units, 60 skeletons seems a little excessive. What do you think?

    Throughout the mortal realms the legends of the Silver Tower are recounted with awe and admiration. Tales of disparate champions good and evil, brought together by naught more than fate, battling against sanity-shredding horrors in the ever-shifting domain of the Gaunt Summoner of Tzeentch.. I bought The Silver Tower on release and I have been quietly obsessing over the models and rules for a few weeks now. I’ve only had a few practice games so far, just playing on my own, but can’t wait to get the Hobgoblin Club round for a proper session.. once I’ve got the rules learnt and (hopefully) most of the miniatures painted! Being able to use whichever mini you like in the Silver Tower is a great way of getting some of those neglected minis out of the cabinet/carry case/shoebox and into a bang up-to-date adventure! The Heroes that come with the box set are incredible, but I’ll still want to use my own. It’ll be great fun to see how the characters from my fantasy armies handle the madness of The Tower. I was using Shazza (my Chaos Sorcerer) in a game, using the Tzeentch Sorcerer Lord hero card, which is all well and good, but decided to make a new one featuring his own image. Shazza Hero Card I also created one for my all time favorite mini Nazgob! EDIT: Just realised that I paid for this card so shouldn't share the details, hence the redaction! Sorry! It took a fair bit of work, so I decided, even though all the stats were the same I might as well take it back to basics so I have a template to make a card for any other characters I want to use in the future.. and what’s the point of going to all that trouble unless you’re willing to share it? The ones I’ve made here are just using equivalent rules for a similar model, but using the template you can create your own heroes from scratch! Be warned though, I’ve created this in Photoshop, so if you don’t have it, you might not be able to open it, or at least not with all the levels pre-made to enter your own stats and text. Sorry. If you don’t have Photoshop, maybe another program will open it.. but honestly.. you’re probably more tech savvy than me! If you don’t have Photoshop (or a way of using the file another way) I’ve included a blank card which you can print out and write on (with a pen!) or to faff around with digitally if you like. Blank Hero Card Here’s the link to a DropBox folder with the files: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/md9n6jbp... The greatest champions, those who grow in strength over time as they solve the Silver Tower's secrets, even they may fall at this hurdle - yet the riches, power and freedom they could gain drive them ever forward. But for every tale that ends in glory, another falls short, bringing only madness and despair... Good luck! g

    Hey fellow servants of the great necromancer, I've been working on some fluff for my vampire list. Hope you like! Harkon wiped the sweat from his brow, the humidity in this accursed desert was stifling. Nearly a dozen of his warband had collapsed. They had been left to die of course, only the strong survived. They had been traveling through the brass hills enroute to a meeting with a rival warlord when suddenly a realm gate appeared, open and unguarded in front of them. Seizing an opportunity to further his own standing in the sight of his master the dread Grand Marshall himself, Harkon had managed to get his sorcerers to inscribe magical runes upon the structure of the realm gate. It would be hidden from sight to all except those loyal to him. That decision had seemed like a foolish one now, 2 weeks march through a desert with no land marks in sight, no shade from the oppressive red sun. Suddenly Harkon froze, he could sense a presence. "Blood Bound to the fore" he muttered, and the gore soaked warriors of Khorne stamped forward. "Tsar-lar take your disc and your chosen of the great magician and scout wide to our left" "As you wish" came the reply A voice whispered in Harkons ear "There can be no victory here, the dead are claimed by another, you cannot win" Harkon spun around his heavy blade swung in a decapitating arc. He braced for an impact that didn't arrive and nearly lost his footing. He staggered momentarily and looked down. "The desert is made of bones" he whispered to himself. How had he not seen this before he wondered? He shook himself out of his reflection. They stayed in battle ready formation for almost 4 hours and nothing. Harkon was just about to issue the order to March when Tsar-lar appeared looking battle scarred. "Report?" Commanded Harkon "The dead are claimed by another" was all Tsar-lar managed before collapsing to the ground. It was then that Harkon saw them, in the distance he could make out a group of Knights, motionless. He looked back to Tsar-lars body and saw a skull winged motif carved into his forehead. "You will pay in blood for this sacrilege" Harkon bellowed at the distant Knights. "You will die" came the rasping reply Almost instantly there was a legion of undead warriors surrounding his position. Perfectly motionless, rank upon rank of immobile warriors, the rusty weapons and pockmarked armour barely looked worth carrying. Harkon had fought the undead countless times before, the skeletons arrayed against him would crumble beneath his warbands swords. He needed to find the undead lord that commanded them. As if he was reading his very thoughts the vampire appeared. "I am Mes'en Dracul Senef" it said then nodded it's head and raised its sword in salute to Harkon. The combat had initially been heavily in Harkons warbands favour but the endless ranks of skeletons were slowly taking their toll. Suddenly the ranks of Skeletons parted and a unit of Knights could be seen charging. Harkon screamed at his personal guard to about face. The Knights charge hit home like a blow from Khorne himself. Harkons personal guard were decimated yet none of the undead Knights approached him, they just bared their fangs and sneered. A shadow formed over head, which despite himself, Harkon found unnerving. He looked up and saw the remains of a dragon flying awkwardly down towards him. Harkon screamed his praise to the dark gods and charged before the monster had landed. The monster was powerful and resisted his attacks. Suddenly a lance struck Harkon in the throat and he collapsed, chocking on his own blood. "The dead belong to another" came the words as Mes'en dismounted. "The dark gods have no power here, and your soul belongs to Nagash now" Mes'en smiled as he watched the life blood drain away from the chaos champion. "Your body, however, now belongs to me" Harkon tried to scream but death had come for him =========================== Mes'en Dracul Senef had been born into a noble family in one of the city states once ruled by Settra the great. When the great King had marched upon Nagash he had fought as all soldiers loyal to the throne must do, their duty. During these trying times Mes'en had commanded a Demi legion of his own and had won great renown. Yet a single battle would change his life forever. He had been issued orders to take his warriors to blunt an attack from one of Nagashs generals. Now he had heard rumours of these 'once men' and their supposed fantastical abilities but had never faced one in battle before. During the battle he had managed to fight his way towards the opposing general, a 'once man' of terrible power and ability. Mes'en was a skilled warrior but was no match for the immortal undead. Yet the vampire saw something in Mes'en and during the fighting time seemed to slow and Mes'en was given a simple choice: die here and now or join us and live forever. Mes'en didn't hesitate "I wish to live forever" "Very well, I am Aborash and hence forth you shall obey my will" the warrior whispered then bared his fangs and bit Years later Mes'en had vowed to emulate his sires feats of martial prowess and had bested a dragon and cured himself of the thirst. He hadn't ignored his innate control of the necromantic arts and could summon and maintain a legion of warriors with very little effort. His memory of those ancient days was crystal clear despite the aeons of time that had passed. Yet there were 3 things that fuelled him, 3 things that would sustain him in his eternal undeath. The first was his shame at fleeing when the great necromancer had requested their aid The second was his shame that Walach, his friend, had fallen to Khorne during the cataclysmic events that had destroyed the world that was And the third was the forgiveness he had had to earn from Nagash himself after he had been summoned to an audience with the great necromancer. "Forgiveness" he smiled to himself. He had become to full of pride, he had failed Nagash and the price of failure was terrible indeed. Nagash has summoned Mes'en and had stripped away his immortality and his enhanced abilities. "You are to live a mortal life time as penance for your failure. If you die then you die. To regain my favour you must complete these 2 tasks. 1) As a blood dragon bloodline you must defeat a dragon in combat and 2) you must sacrifice a champion of each of the races from across the 9 realms to me. Then and only then shall you regain my favour" Mes'en burst into laughter. He had learnt his lessons well, his arrogance and pride had been painfully torn from him. He now served Nagash completely He was now fulfilled, purpose driven and had aeons of battle experience. He despised the schemes of his brothers. All he needed was to serve Nagash, all he needed was to remember one thing "The dead belong to another" Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The FAQ doesn't care if you decide to houserule measuring bases. As far as the rules are concerned, bases do not exist, therefore 'being able to fit through gaps' likewise doesn't care about the base, whether you like to call it "tipping the base on the side" or "seeing if the model sans base can get through" doesn't matter. It does make/force/allow you to 'pyramid' your models as you mentioned earlier. Now the house-rule where bases DO matter on the other hand, you won't be able to fit through, because the base is part of the model. It's also generally understood that the base the model comes with or an approximate size is required for this system to work - i.e. nobody bringing 5 foot bases. You can't use a FAQ for a game that doesn't care about bases and apply logic to a house rule that does - to justify boosting weapon ranges. Now I think your system is a perfectly fine HOUSERULE but I don't think you will be able to push it to the community at large. This thread is a pretty clear indicator several people do not like arbitrarily increasing some models attack range. Whether you care about the math or no behind it, it removes tactical depth of the game where positioning and pile-ins become moot - because you reach anyway.

    Wow. That looks awesome, Nixon. Very impressive work. Some of the best worn metal I've seen around here on that axe head. And that shoulder skull is top notch. Sent from my Z958 using Tapatalk

    I also live in Stockholm. And I have two kids (3y and 1y) so time isn't my friend either. ? But I have found that painting is a great way to relax when every else is finally sleeping and if I get one game in a month its great. One thing that would really help me get more games in is if any one know (or want to start) a gaming club with a recurring gaming night and a set venue so I would have something to plan around and try to find time for.

    Once again, a partial slow update. Staff is done finally and attached, so by tomorrow he should be finished. The magic smoke effect I wanted to look like the magic in total war, so it goes from a very yellow green to an emerald green. Enjoy.

    With the impending release of the new Sylvaneth models, and a long held desire to collect and paint Sylvaneth models, I've taken the plunge and ordered one of the Branchwraith models. Loving Warhammer Quest, I decided to create a homebrew character card and will be trying her out in the weeks to come.

    Agreed, the one thing I don't like about AoS is this encouragement to stack bases - I'm not a master sculptor by any means, but I intend to put some care and attention into my bases to tie the army together and I don't want people stacking anything on top of them. Hopefully common sense will prevail throughout - most in the community seem to be for measuring base to base so once the competition scene really kicks off I'm sure that's the way it'll gravitate, maybe with the addition of some house rules for attacking through other models to save on so much fiddly measurements. This kind of fiddlyness is what really puts me off running a horde army - in theory, I love the idea of running horde upon horde of skeletons and zombies, but I think I'll save that for a rank and file game in the future. For now, small units and big monsters are really drawing my attention, that's one of the many things over the last few days that has pulled me over to the Order GA

    Here once again is my slow contribution! Couldn't get any progress done at the weekend as I went to see some pro counter strike, but otherwise the main body is finished, so it's time for the staff, cloak and gubbinz! The bottom of the staff would be hard to paint attached due to the robe, so I am doing that then gluing it on to finish painting the head of it. Also the sword needs some more blending work.

    It might not be the most satisfyingly fast blog ever, but did some more work. His lower tunic/skirt is now finished, as are the fang shaped things on his belt. I saw these as being some kind of ritualistic implements or simply some gubbinz the shaman feels are importantly linked to gorkamorka. two red in the fron and back reminded me of fangs, thus the symmetry. He also has one in stone, one in rusty iron, and one in bronze. Not too sure on the stone yet, but we shall see.

    Today's update. Maximum Grimwrath! Three of them, tried using the new technical waystone green to make a glass axe effect. Like it enough to leave it. Bored yet? Still got two Magmadroth characters, 10 more Hearthguard berserkers, runeson, three doomseekers and 10 more vulkites to go. Only 12 of those models needed for my preferred 100 points of scgt though.

    Wow... starting to think that just calling my Stormcast army "The Hammerbro's" might not cut it here.
