    Hi guys - a bit more on the Gloomspite Gitz project. I've always liked the idea and concept of Giants and I wanted to include at least one in my Gloomspite army - but I had to do something with it, both being a compulsive converter, and wanting it to fit into the Mushroom theme better. It didn't take long before I began to get this idea of mushrooms infecting a living creature (a bit akin to that horrible fungus thing ants can contract), and an idea of the model began to form. I took the most mindless head from the gargant kit, reposed the legs to make them look more zombie-stagger-like, and attached a bunch of mushrooms to his body and back (including the top of his head, them coming out of his brain - ew!) Being completely Shroom-Zombified (totally a word), he needed a grot minder, giving him orders, and his own little lookout barrel. I'm really digging the vibe of this guy. Also, 3 more trolls, with some minor conversions and swaps.

    To be fair, a poster who openly flaunts his or her disregard for an NDA is probably someone who is at odds with the basic principles of this site, and proper societal behavior as a whole. Please note, I'm not saying the NDA person is evil or that we, as a group, didn't appreciate the info. I'm just saying what with that user name, I'm not at all surprised he/she was asked to stop. (Personal note: I've signed many NDAs in my time. I've wanted very much to break them. Integrity demanded that I didn't. There's a special place in the Realm of Chaos for people who betray trust.)

    Rules make no sense. Its a rumor thread where rumormongers get banned, we cant post leaked images, whats the point? Oooo sure am happy about [latest warhammer community post] isn't [mod-approved topic] quite interesting, eh wot? (stormcast, human or not?! Fantasy was better than AoS, dwarfs>elves, wololololololo!)

    Hi guys - I wanted to show off an idea for my Squig Army.

    I wouldn't really put much weight behind this website, I don't think they put much effort into this part. Doesn't have "gloomspite" for example, just "grots" By asking you to stop (or banning you) he's really done nothing but lend credence to your rumors... Thanks again for sharing...

    @Sception I dunno what else to tell you then, man. If you’re determined to debunk every argument in their favour with hypotheticals and what ifs, we’re just going to go in circles. I guess that, putting real life ahead of theorycraft, I finished 10th at Facehammer with 30 of them, won a highly competitive one-dayer with them, and didn’t lose a single game in practice against a team including two UK masters players. They work, they’re good, try them!

    I agree, news and rumors should just be news & facts no: ”real” rumors images wish listing theories or even discussions about why no rumors. not sure where n&r section is supposed to go now. Back to lurking

    Is everyone in GW pocket these days? Well if rumours can't be discussed on a forum what's the point? Thanks for the rumours NDA, and godspeed you handsome devil. Beige is great if you want to be invisible.

    Probably because I now bought two white dwarfs I got a genuine theory though. In Stormcast episode 1, the video cast by warhammerTV, they had one of their senior rules writers on. He talked about how he got the chance as a game designer with the first version of blood bowl that featured in the white dwarf. He spoke at length about how he learned and that you cannot be a rules designer I theory but only be one by actually publishing your ideas and letting the world test them to breaking. I thought the Skirmish rules were his, mr Bracken, first rules in the role of Lead. They hired Bottle, creator of Hinterlands, another creator that needs to test his skills, a combo tome. I think they might be preparing the companies rules division for some new blood and just need space for them to test things. Again just my perception, but can’t help but connect that interview with new rules designers suddenly being center stage with their first creations.

    I have managed to finish the last few remaining details on the Alarielle late last night:

    My Arch-Warlock is called Skurrilious Maus. Brave, heroic, powerful: these are all words used by him (and pretty much only him) to describe himself. Genuinely clever and a competent inventor, he is nevertheless nowhere near the genius he believes himself to be, but persists in a sort of scavenger hunt across the realms, hoping to find something he can use to unlock the secrets of Blōmafyrn, the Broken World... Then they'll see... They'll all see!

    I guess we're all just free to make up our own rumours willy-nilly now then... I hear on the grapevine that... pffff. I can't think of anything funny. Just sort of rolling my eyes at the pointlessness of this thread.

    I present to all for you... THE EXALTED KEEPER OF SECRETS! I've been working on her for 2 weeks. It was a gift from a friend, and when i noticed terrible mold slips and bad job, my GW store owner notified me it's actually China-cast, but being the nice guy that he was, he taught me what I needed to do to paint it, and work with it. The hair is green stuffed by me, the armys had to be pinned and greenstuffed at the joined, the sword is warped and I tried pretty hard to get it as straight as I could, the base is random elf bits and a freebie stormcast painted up in what will be my stormcast colors. I meant for her to have icy blue claws to match the sword, but the claws broke while trying to put them on, so I went with her having an icy touch.

    Considering that people have lost jobs over rumours in the past its not totally surprising if someone is spreading a significant number all at once. It's rare that we'd get a years worth of releases in one big rumour go - normally one gets a bit here or a bit there of what might be coming; even then the shifting schedule and department differences makes for some degree of confusion. There might also be more we don't know, also lets not forget thus far not a single rumour has been proven or disproved.

    Isn’t all too often the truth of many armies? Keywords and few options force it for newer armies while we have other issues. They should try killing two birds with one stone. More Warscroll Battalions. More mobility for Fell Bats, let Bat Swarms effect shooting with proximity the targeted unit, make Black Knights more punchy on the charge, something zombie-zombie for deathwalkers, etc. If anything it could work for experimenting on future warscroll changes.

    After completing my pledge, I veered off slightly on my stretch goals and did some experimenting. Speed painted the Blood Reevers from Shadespire to test glazing over brown zenithal pre-shading (and realised I did some terrible / non-existent gap filling around a year ago...), five Chainghast to try reverse Zenithal (didn't get enough contrast, but great models...) and tried some NMM on a Blood Warriors axe.

    Only got half my pledge done this month, this unit of Flagellant Ghouls. Was a busy month and things got away from me. Honestly without the motivation of this this thread I would have not even gotten these done. So a big thank you to all those who contribute, it helps keep the hobby juices flowing.

    For me orchestral game music is by far and away the best. Often looped and extended. Any of Jeremy Soule's stuff (he composes the Elder Scrolls music) is great for mortal Chaos, Stormcast, Duardin & Aelves. For DoK the Witcher 3's battle music especially "The Song of the Sword-Dancer", "Steel for Humans" & "Silver for monsters" but "Eyes of the Wolf" "Hunt Or Be Hunted" and "Cloak and Dagger" work too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAGm9MTyRJ8 For the Deepkin: Legend of Zelda Water Temple. The remixes are better though. For Daemons and Undead the music of the Dark Souls games. For Orruks and Ogres, I like the music to Witcher 3 again but Skyrim's soundtrack works too And for the realms and cities of Order: Zelda Breath of the Wild and Twilight Princess music.

    I had yesterday my first game with my slaves since over 8 Months. And it was a blast! Short background: I started around a year ago with StD to play AoS. We had a local campain back there and even a small local tournament at out local gw. But I noticed quite fast that my StD are lacking some heavy punching power against a lot of armies. I had at this point a Lord on Manticore, 30 Warriors, Chariot and Knights + Sorcerer as my army, which even was enough to get 2 wins at out local tournament I mentioned. But after the campaign ended I noticed quite fast that in a lot of match ups I was simply not able to do anything due to the lack of shooting or rend. So I decided to jump on the God-Train and mixed quite a lot of Khorne into my StD, playing also Khorne Alligience since that time. I did get some Choosen and a Lord on Pony in the meantime, but mostly relied on a Slaughterpriest and the other Khorne-Buff Heroes. Yesterday I played a 2k Game against a friend who started pretty new into AoS a month ago. Perfect situation to play my "lackluster" army. I played to fun, keeping the Alligience-StD table as a main priority without loosing focus on mission Objective (The sixt one from GHB with the 3 stars coming down). And this ended in an game I enjoyed like long time not more. I took as many heroes as I could and tried to let them finish his beasts and heroes so they may ascend or at least gain a bit of their gods attention. It ended up in some weird activation patterns ("Yeah, I could kill your troglodon easy with my knights, but I won´t so my Lord can attempt it on the next turn again"), facepalms ("What the...wait a second...I need to kill your Hero with a Combat Weapon? No Magic? How is this supposed to please Tzwwntch anyway? Nevermind, I guess my Sorcerer Killstealed that Troglodon") and generaly a lot of fun ("My Lord kills your general and....wait, he failed all hits? Damn...yeah, sure, activate him...how many saves?...ugh....I have rerolls...but I guess my Lord is a Spawn now"). So, overall, I ended playing the army in the intended way: Seeking Chaos glory whilst slaying my foes. I even won due to objectives (6x5 Warriors is damn handy for Objective Missions) and will play them more, even before the rumoured Darkoath drops

    Xorg the Spiker clicked and hissed to himself as he scuttled through the Dankwood. The poison-bottles in the basket lashed to his back clinked together as his swaying gait moved them around. His bare feet pattered over the gloomy forest floor, between gnarled tree roots and clusters of fungus. Thin beams of pallid moonlight managed to break through the tangled bowers overhead and illuminated the winding pathways. Shrouds of thick cobwebs hung from the branches and nameless things squirmed and writhed in the shadows. It felt like home! He had heard rumours of a growing lurklair in the midst of this dark corner of the forest, and that a Fungoid Cave Shaman was gathering a warband. A gathering of Gloomspite Gitz meant one thing to him: customers! - 🍄 - Some close-in shots of details. I struggled with the glass bottles as I looked at a lot of very, very good still-life paintings that included wine bottles during my art degree. So my expectation of what a glass bottle should look like is probably unrealistic at 28mm scale! I tried something different with his skin this time: Elysian Green basecoat, lightly dry-brushed with Pallid Wych Flesh, then washed with Athonian Camoshade. So quick and easy: It ends up looking exactly the same as the Gitz I painted with a lot more steps!
