    I LOVE WARHAMMER It might be an obvious thing to say. But it’s true. It’s why I do what I do. It why spend a massive percentage of my disposable income on my hobby. It’s why any free time I have (admittedly less over the last few years) is spent painting, playing, list building, reading and chatting Warhammer. The love of Warhammer is why I have podcasted about it for 10 years. Its why I go to events, and also run them. Blood and Glory, Alliance, Destruction Derby and lots more. Loving Warhammer is why I started the Masters, and the rankings. Its why I have spent countless hours of my life chatting with people online from all around the world about almost anything related to warhammer. (That 7th Harpy is the most important, (Those that know, know) More importantly, I LOVE THE WARHAMMER COMMUNITY That’s why when I hang out with my friends, they are Warhammer friends. I drive to all around the UK to visit new places and meet new people to play warhammer with. I choose events because my mates are going. I been away from home to play games on 2 days out of the 6 we are away. I have been to the Ferrari museum at Modena, Italy with my Warhammer mates. I have sat in beer garden, of a closed bar, in a none discript city in Germany, in the middle of the day, listening to a long and bad story, about a terrible tasting spirit with a bunch of guys I have never met before in my life, and it was one of the most fun times i've had. Because they were Warhammer people. I have traveled to Chicago and spent 4 days in a hotel not even caring that i've never been to America before and might miss the chance to go sight seeing. I've had to run across a city in Switzerland to catch the last train at 1am because I was too busy talking to a bunch of Swedes and didn't know I was close to sleeping on the street outside the venue! One of my oddest traditions is eating ice creams on snowy Saturday mornings while walking the streets of Darnel and reminiscing about DeeDaars. I've laughed and laughed so hard that i thought I would be sick, at the stupidest things said on an evening at a Warhammer event. Again and again and again. With lots of people in lots of places. I have a hundred and more stories like this. All about the people who play warhammer. This is one of my wedding photos. Filled with Warhammer people. So just to be clear... I LOVE WARHAMMER AND THE PEOPLE WHO PLAY IT. THEY ARE MY PEOPLE. So when I see complaining about the thing I love it really brings me down. And when it’s relentless complaining over and over it puts me off wanting to spend time interacting with those people. Sometimes this means stop going to events, other times that means stop chatting on forums and posting on social media. It stops being fun. It actually stops me wanting to play any warhammer at all. And that is really sad. It's not just me that feels like this. I know this because I talk to hundreds of people in the community. When I started TGA a few years ago it was to create a like minded community online. A safe haven in the sea of haters about the changes to Warhammer. (Sound familiar?) A place for ‘Only The Faithful’ as it later became known. Its seems that recently people are forgetting this. You might notice that this post says 'I' quite a bit, well TGA is my happy place. I built it to celebrate everything awesome about Warhammer. The game, the hobby, the people. I want to come here and chat about Warhammer, see awesome paint jobs and learn about people’s latest victory’s on the table (or crushing defeats!) I want to hear about how the New to the hobby Dad and his 12 year old son who got him into the hobby are loving playing the game and can't wait to lean how the Dads Flesh eater courts can beat his sons Stormcast (Actual email I received from this forum.) I want to see the hobby blog from the guy who is just learning painting, and the latest Golden Deamon run from a veteran painter. I want to read about Chris Tomlin losing his mind over how bad, then how good then how bad Ironjawz are. I want to be blown away by the tactic and list combos posted in the depth of a 82 page Daughters of Khaine Thread that has had over 100000 views. What I don’t want to do is log in on a sunny bank holiday weekend and see 20 reports about bad attitudes, name calling and abusive behaviour. I understand that my hobby is not everyones hobby. Some people genuinely enjoy arguing and moaning online and if that’s your thing I wouldn’t dream of asking you to stop. But I will ask you to stop doing it here. I’ve asked this a few times in the past and the response is usually the same. ‘Bad Dice are GW fan boys. TGA is all rainbows and unicorns’ My reply to that is wholeheartedly YES! I wear my fanboy badge with pride and I love the Rainbows and Unicorns that we have cultivated here. You don’t see them often. There is a theory that “You're The Average Of The Five People You Spend The Most Time With” now I can’t say if this is true or not, but I do know that if you spend a lot of time listening to negative views and speaking with negative people then you end up becoming just like that yourself. The opposite is also true. Spend your days talking to people who are motivated and excited about the hobby and it’s infectious. Amazingly so. Going forwards I don’t want to be seeing relentless negativity, arguing, name calling and I’ll the other nonsense that has been going on recently. If someone was like this in person I would just stop talking to them. When people are like this on Twitter I mute or block them. Seeing as TGA is my happy place, and I am the boss here, it will be moderated and the people posting it will be asked to find another community to enjoy. From what I understand there are a few places online that thrive on just this outlook on the game. You will be very, very welcome there. If this angers you, remember Wheatons Law. Then ask yourself i you are falling foul of it. Its a simple reality check that everyone should do. For those that want a place to talk Warhammer and celebrate everything awesome about this hobby you are welcome to join me in my happy place. Age of Sigmar 2 is coming ad emotions are running really high at the moment. I would urge people to remember that all of this has happened before and will happen again. When Warhammer Fantasy change to Age of Sigmar the community continued. We got on with it, played warhammer and made great things happen. Off the back of that I would say that we are in the best times ever for a Warhammer player. When AoS2 lands, no matter how good or bad that turns out to be the players will continue to play. I cant wait to move this fantastic community forward into AoS2!

    So last saturday about 5 in the afternoon I did it I finally reached a fully painted 2000pt army. I gotta say this was a personal goal I have been wanting to do ever since I was a teenager and now 15-20 years later I finally did it. Specially during my teen years but also as an adult have I started painting at least 10 different armies, but until now I have never completed one not even close. So to be honest I kinda expected a crowd giving me a standing ovation, maybe a small brassband playing: ‘we are the champions’ while someone important held a speach for me but non of that happend. Though my wife to be gave me a: “oh thats nice”, when I ran screaming with my t-shirt over my head and victory signs in the air in circles in our livingroom celebrating like some famous athtlete who just won the superbowlchampionsleaguesomethingsomething. Anyway so while I wait for Nike to contact me on some sponsor deals I thought it would be fun to hear from those of you who like me are grown ups with kids/jobs/lives that allows for very little time to paint, how long does it take you to paint an army, how do you fight the evergrowing feeling of hopelessness when batchpainting large units? Whats the fastest you have painting for a descent result? and serioulsly Nike Ive already got the slogan for you. ’You can paint it’ TM. 😉

    Who are you @Rogue Sun and were you actually at my event? You say "not to create controversy", but you know that is exactly what you are doing and you need to stop it. There is absolutely zero controversy here and these type of posts really wind me up. I'm not sure whether I'd be more or less annoyed to learn you were at the event or not. If you were at the event, then you will have been part of the fantastic atmosphere with 94 players enjoying some fun games of Warhammer. It was one of the most relaxed events I've ever been at (TOing or playing) with zero issues whatsoever. So this being the case, I'm not sure why you'd feel the need to raise this after the fact rather than just coming up and talking to me during the event. On the flipside, you weren't at the event and you just want to stir the pot whilst sitting being some internet pseudonym. If this is the case, then I really don't understand your agenda here and your posts have zero value in my opinion. As others have mentioned Ben always likes to create fantastic custom terrain for his armies and brings this along to events with a gaming mat. Whilst he has shown this weekend that he is a top player, he is also a great hobbyist and clearly gets a buzz out of great looking games of Warhammer. BLACKOUT was held at Firestorm Games, who provided terrain for all tables, so attendants were not required to do so. However, Ben asked his opponents if they minded him using his mat and terrain before each game. As per @Carrion King's response (and thank you James for that response - well done again for your performance on the weekend), most of Ben's opponents were more than happy with this arrangement as it made for the best looking table each round (a lot of the Firestorm terrain is still very much WFB over AoS). ...however, one of Ben's opponents stated he would rather use the terrain on the table they were drawn on, which was of course completely within his right to do. So that game was played on the provided terrain and Ben still tabled his opponent whilst giving away 0 kill points (we are talking about a very good player as his opponent here as well!). During this particular round, Aaron Bailey (@Forestreveries), who swept up painting awards with a pirate themed Legion of Night, was able to play on a table with all Ben's terrain and it looked fantastic. There is absolutely zero negative in any of this and I really don't understand the mentality of trying to find one. Ben won 5 major victories, tabled all his opponents with 10k+ kill points, gave away 0 kill points vs two very good players, got a Best Army nomination and 2/5 Best Opponent votes. He was an all rounder and the clear Champion. End of. I will collate a PDF of all 94 lists either tonight or tomorrow. I'll share the link in this thread when it's up. Chris

Here they are : And a group picture with bases remaded for my branchwych and my champion : Hope you will like them !! Bye for now ! I will be bacq

    Howdy folks, Thanks for the invite. I believe someone mentioned this in the Rumour Thread but I'll repost for visibility. My name is Emmet Bryne, I'm a producer with Cubicle 7 Entertainment. Some of you might know us already as last year we released Warhammer Fantasy 4th Edition. We also make the The One Ring and Adventures in Middle-earth RPGs for the Lord of the Rings, as well as the Doctor Who RPG. More importantly, we are currently in development on the Age of Sigmar Roleplaying Game. In the coming weeks we'll have some big news to share about the Age of Sigmar RPG, so if you'd like to keep up to date you can head over to our Facebook page at the link below. I'm also on twitter where you'll find some of my wandering thoughts as I help write and develop the game. And lastly, there is Warhammer Fantasy RPG Discord, and they have been kind enough to create the "aosrpg" room for us in there. Thanks folks. Any questions, pop them below, but just be warned that there's only so much I can answer right now. All the best - Emmet C7 Facebook C7 Twitter My Twitter Ratcatchers Discord PS: I realise this is sort of a "news about upcoming news" post, but I wanted to start engaging with all of you fine folk sooner rather than later. We're starting to build the community around the Age of Sigmar RPG and I'm keen to get everyone's thoughts while we're still deep in development. Thanks all

    Looks like Sylvaneth will be getting some new minis. I am pretty sure this solves two rumour engine pictures. Here are the rumour engine pics for comparison. It makes you wonder what other new kits might be in the box.

    Hi to everyone! I joined this forum like 2 years ago and never post anything(), so i'd say it's finally time now lol! I always been a big elves fan, specifically wood elf, and they were my first warhammer fantasy army/love, so the sylvaneth were the obvious and right choice for my first aos models. Here are the photos of the tree-revenants i made one year ago, hope you like them(of course any tips/comment is very welcome!). Now i'm working on some dryads, in the next few day i'll post it (still wip); in this topic i will post any progress i'll make! ps: sorry for any error in my english, i'm italian and not so used to it, 🤐

    So yeah.. my guess is that probably very few people will see these images. However as promissed back in march here is the finished army. At the moment it has reached 2880pt about to be 3100pt once I finish my Harbingers. Next up is Kurdoss, a Coven Throne, a Cairn Wraith and at some point a Knight of Shroud on a steed.

    Hello Everyone, This post will be a mini-blog on the new band of Duardin that I am starting. I started collecting warhammer when I was 8 and then gave up when I was 13, with a small bin bag full of grey plastic that was subsequently thrown out by my mother. I decided to get back into things at the start of last year (aged 28). The first thing I bought was a box of dwarf warriors, which I painted up and fell back in love with the hobby. Since then I have been collecting 40k (more popular with my friends) but have been dying to expand my dwarf army and get into AoS. This community seems really friendly so I thought I would share my progress here. This is the first creative blog thingy that I have done. Since last year I had been writing bits of back story about a far flung continent in the realm of Chamon. It included ideas for several armies that I may eventually want to build. One such army is the Gharuki Duardin, who live deep inside a gargantuan forest. Their civilization is formed from many clans who fled their more traditional mountain dwellings as the forces of chaos swept through in the last age, forcing them to seek refuge in new and alien places. The forest they inhabit is comprised of copperheart oaks, thousands of feet tall and hundreds of feet wide. The canopy of the forest is thick, providing a comforting cavern-like habitat for the duardin. As well as carving extensive tunnel networks around the roots of these trees they have also built elaborate wooden towns and villages that climb the giant trunks. As well as providing a home these trees also have rich mineral veins that run through their hearts, a peculiarity owing to the realm of metal in which they grow. (NOTE: After coming up with this I then read the brilliant Spear of Shadows book by Josh Reynolds which contains a very similar forest once inhabited by dwarfs! Oh well, at the time I thought I was being clever ?) The forest has provided such a good home to these Duardin that they view the trees themselves as sacred and have an entire school of runesmiths who dedicate their life to tend to them. Each tree usually has one or two rootsmiths who carve protective and sustaining runes into their bark, make sure that that they are getting all the nutrients that they need and guard them against any overambitious kin who would build their homes in them without the proper care. About half way through the timeline of these particular dwarfs, an early Kharadron fleet crashed into the forest canopy with few survivors. Those that remained found help and sanctuary and decided to stay with the Gharuki and leave a life of profit that had brought them so much ruin. One particularly skilled endinmaster became very fond of his forest kin and did all that he could to share his technological knowledge with them. The Gharuki today have a vast and sophisticated force of gyrocopters and and other flying machines that they dock in the upper levels of the forest. They are no comparison for a kharadron force, but the canopy squadrons are impressive despite the lack of aether endrins. As well as the canopy squadrons, the Gharuki maintain a more conventional dispossessed force called the root guard. These more conventional grumblers tend to dwell in the lower parts of the forests and the root networks themselves. They tend to be older and a bit more cynical, often complaining of the ambition of duardin who are too eager to climb trees and fly about in silly mechanical contraptions. So what will these mean on the board? My plan is a mixed dispossessed / ironweld / kharadon army. I aim to make the dispossessed a little more tech-based than normal, and the kharadon a bit more traditional than normal. All while trying to keep a "forest" theme. Completed so far I have: 16 warriors, the first models I painted, back when I had no idea what direction I wanted to go in. They are green though, which is a start! A cogmsith and warden king that I have painted recently after much more practice. I have used these to experiment with a strong green colour scheme, and the warden king includes a small lantern conversion that I feel fits in with the deep dark forest idea. I hope to get more ambitious as I go along. The bases need improving, but I haven't quite settled on how they will look yet. They will almost certainly contain some sort of fallen leaves. I am now beginning on 2 units of 10 longbeards. The will have a similar green armour to my warden king. They will not have any elaborate conversions but I have designed a new shield for them all to bear. I've always wanted to do a custom dwarf shield that represented a particular clan. This shield is a 13mm across and will be printed using shapeways finest detail acrylic. I printed a test piece (slightly different design) and the detail is almost as good as GW plastic. Once my next test has arrived (design above) I will post pictures. I might have to spray it first, because the printed part is translucent and difficult to see. If all goes to plan I will the print something similar to the sprue below: Thanks for reading if you have made it this far. Hopefully this blog will keep me going and I hope I can be more active in this community ?.

    Morning everyone. Ive spoken with NDABreaker and unfortunately it’s someone having his own little fun and wishlisting. I’m going to clear this up into its own thread. EDIT: I posted this before reading the thread. So let me be clear. I meassaged the poster and before he got back to me he came here to say he was being silenced. I then explained that the site software can track the devices used to make posts, showing 2 accounts posting from the same phone and his tune changed I know who the poster is but I’m not going to share his name so let’s leave it as that for the record, I love rumours, I also love wishlists but let’s not confuse the two

    These seem to be some kind of altered high elf runes RUNES What I could make out: Right to left: Garvir, Darkness, Gloom (mirrored) Horothoi, youth, Boundless Energy (makes sense due to the Penumbral Engine) Lacoi (as mentioned before), Might, Glory, Fear of Death Dassoir, Scrying, Sight, Forbidden Knowledge --- Or --- Lecai, Light Mobility of the Soul (this one is pure speculation) maybe Oriour, blood, birth the first one: Hard guess, this might be Tavlu, Mark of Hoeth, Misery In the right order (with a little interpretaion): Misery, Birth (Blood), forbidden knowledge, Fear of Death, Boundless Energy, Darkness Sound a little like the Nagashs story XD

    I have some thoughts I'll post later, since some things are clearly busted. However, conclusions should not be drawn too quickly. Our team didn't stack command abilities, we didn't have Kroak, Dreadwood, Engine, Portal nor the lens. I'm the captain of team Sweden, we came in second place without all of these "broken" things. So they couldn't be all that busted, really ?

    Part of it is the fragmented nature of rumours and which bits of the process people have seen and when they know about it. GW switched about a year from little additions to ranges to renewing ranges, which means the pipeline behind that switched about 3-4 years ago. Rumours get spawned from concept art, not all of which is used, and there can be big differences between the art and the finished minis, test sculpts and prints (again not all of which are used, and I was expecting the Eldar Spirit Seer to come out ages ago, but the model got forgotten about when studio guys got moved around and it sat on someone's desk for 3 years) or when it finally gets to the design studio and they have to work out what the hell to do with the pile of models they've just been given, and then comes playtesting, box art, manufacturing, etc. Leaks trickle out from various points and get mixed in with channers making stuff up to wind people up. And then you get a bunch of chinese whispers or potato cam shots. I heard some squats rumours a couple of years before Kharadron Overlords, and discounted them because a) Squats and b) people keep seeing unreleased/limited release stuff from 2nd ed in peoples collections and getting excited. I got told about baby stealers being a big deal in the new GSC, but it turns out it's just a bunch of character models getting little buddies and there was a lot of chatter because genestealer familiars are as popular with the sculptors as Nurglings are. Similarly GW have only shown 25% ish of the new Chaos stuff and Blackstone was a soft preview of the range. Warcry I've known as Killteam but Aos since autumn last year, but I've not known the details regarding it as a) I'm not interested in AoS much, though 2.0 softened me a bit and I've played a bunch of Underworlds and think it's one of the best designed GW games in years and b) I was far more interested in the stuff coming out for KT and 40k. And 40k is going to hit us like a train this year. However Darkoath (which will include the StD range) has peaked my interest, as sixpack barbarians done with modern sculpting hit's the spot for me as an old fantasy player. I will definitely be getting into AoS Killteam. I was expecting Warcry at the back end of this year, and the LVO announcement to feature more of the Chaos stuff or maybe hints from the big 40k summer releases, but it's possible it's coming sooner. I've been told the leak seen is pretty much correct. Watching the trailer though you can pretty much educated guess half the background detail, and Stormcast vs Chaos is also a pretty easy guess from there. I know the Kill Team studio guys were pushing hard to get new minis assigned to them (and used the slow sales on the faction starters and commander sets to say that they needed something new) and now they've got the new format we've seen in the latest release of a more aggressively priced product with new models and more material (twice the missions per set for example). I had hoped they'd follow the new coke formula with Warcry, and will be disappointed if they don't. And Kill Team: Inquisition around Easter (though with White Dwarf losing the new release section the schedule is even more malleable now). Wade was incredibly pissed I a) knew about it and b) had mentioned it in public but to be honest I completely lose track of what Community have talked about, as I was sure they'd shown a bunch of stuff they haven't and I'm being a bit more circumspect now. But this month and next month features the last two Underworlds boxes for this season, Vigilus 2, a range refresh for Chaos in 40k with a giant pile of kits, Primaris Wave 2, one or two more AoS battletomes, possibly another Kill Team wave and then KT:Inquisition at the back with some Specialist stuff sprinkled in as well and that's just the next 6-8 weeks. There's a lot of 40k this year, a lot, and the release schedule is not slowing down with at least one big £95 ish box a month every month for one system or other, constantly slamming into our wallets.

    I also considered to buy those, but I didn't like them as they are too small compared to their price and how much storage they provide for miniatures. So I bought Ikea Billy racks with glass doors and installed LEDs in them. They are much better for the purpose as they provide about double the space each compared to the floor space required. Of course they were much more expensive, but who cares when you look at all the miniatures?

    Honestly I find the ‘outrage’, if genuine, depressing, embarrassing and hilarious in equal measure. I just wish people would put as much effort into being angry about ****** that actually matters than this constant dull obsession many people into this game (and indeed across nearly all facets of, for want of a better term, ‘nerd culture’) of being helpless victims constantly being ‘disrepected’, ‘slapped in the face’ or other hyperbolic statements of anguish. Right now as I see it it’s just a couple of lines in a book to add in some colour to the world at large and if anything probably just meant as a nice Easter egg for those who get the reference, not realising it would be taken as a mortal insult. Who knows maybe down the line it could lead to a model or two (there’s been at least 1 or 2 times I’ve seen throw away lines in BL books foreshadow, intentionally or not, new models). And there is that mysterious figure in the Warcry art that could lean in to this but who knows so maybe they will bring a range out that reflects that and it will no doubt be greeted with more wailing and gnashing.

    Hey TGA people! I wanted to let you all know of a big project two friends and I have been working on for a while now- a new gaming venue in central London called Bad Moon Cafe. Situated on Great Dover Street- 6 minutes from Borough and 10 minutes from London Bridge, we wanted to make it the best place to play Warhammer in London. Our priority was the tables- we've had 15 custom gaming tables made, with a dice tray, bag storage and space for books and armies either side, with a lip around the mat and fully painted and matching terrain for each table. There's 5ft of space between each table row, guaranteeing enough space to move around or sit down. Have a look at a render of the table and photos of the terrain setup we've made: We really want to build a community around the store. We'll be organising monthly one-day tournaments for Age of Sigmar and 40k as well as larger annual 2-day tournaments. We want the monthly tournaments to be friendly and enjoyable first and foremost, and the annual tournaments to be as fair and balanced as we can be (I'm an avid listener to @JustPlay-Ritchie and @ianob's excellent Just Playing podcast so will endeavor to follow their example of tournament organising!). We're opening on the 15th and all weekend we're having some special offers on our stock and food! I'll be sharing some photos of the venue itself soon- just finishing up on site for a couple more days! In the meantime, here's another CG render of the space as it will look: Please come down and find me! (I'll be playing Nurgle or standing around in a staff shirt!) Hugh at Bad Moon Cafe

    Hi, After many moons of lurking around the edges of TGA I have decided to jump onto the AoS 2.0 bandwagon, having been out of Fantasy since 6th edition. My plan is to build a Sylvaneth army based in Shyish that has fallen foul of one of the many curses that stalk the realm of death. At the outset of the Age of Chaos, shortly after Nagash's great betrayal, the shrouded groves of the Amythyst-kin were assailed by a vast host of the dead. Despite being greatly outnumbered, the valiant Sylvaneth defenders were able to use their affinity for the forest to break up and destroy the necromantic tide. Only a single one of the invaders, a vile and vindictive Soulblight Vampire, managed to penetrate to the inner sanctum of the forest and find its secret heart; a soulpod in the form of a fathomless pool, Alarielle's gift and the womb of the woods. As the creature reached it's clawed hand out over the crystal waters, the most ancient warden of the wood, a Treelord whose roots stretched back to a time when the world was young, speared the monstrosity through the back. With it's last ounce of strength, the Vampire leaned forwards, allowing a single drop of it's blood to fall into pristine pool, forever tainting the offspring of life with it's own unspeakable hunger. So, basically, I'm taking some opposites (life and death) and jamming them together to see what comes out. Obviously there are a lot of really great 'scary Sylvaneth' armies out there, it's a theme that I really like and plays very well into the new rules for realm affiliation. Stylistically, many of these armies take on a very gritty, blanchitsu, Witcher 3 type feel which I love. This is very much in keeping with my own style, which I have used extensively for painting 40k armies, so would perhaps be the natural way to go. But, as they say, when others zig, it's sometimes good to zag, so I'm planning to use this project as an opportunity to try out something a bit different for me, in terms of both feel and technique. Maybe a bit more fantastical and overall a little bit closer to the vibrant style of a lot of the AoS art. Anyway, I thought i'd pop my progress up on here, hoping it will act as a motivation to keep a decent pace up. My eventual goal (despite being primarily into modelling and painting) will be to find some games in my local area (North London) and eventually attend an event of some kind; throwing down in the way only a blood sucking tree-spirit knows how. So I guess that means 2000 points-ish, but list honing will certainly not be any sort of priority. But enough of this nonsense; without further ado, here are some pictures of my first test models - a hungry looking Tree-Revenant and a Kurnoth Hunter with a very big axe to grind. Maybe its more of a glaive, but where's the fun in letting reality interfere with word-play? Ta / VN

    Originally just a camping spot for a larger expedition the foolheart tribe quickly discovered the large deposits of ore and set about making a permanent settlement, trade was established with surrounding areas and the tribe named the area Candle Heart. The village grew over the ages and managed to avoid conflict with all but the occasional marauding force of savage beasts. During the age of chaos a realmgate was discovered, it became known as the well of tears as nobody that had ever entered had returned. Amongst the ores the now collective of men and duradin found strange green gems that nobody could seem to identify. In the weeks that passed the discovery the town was approached by an envoy of Nagash, they were told the great necromancer had allowed them to continue to live unmolested but now they had to start paying for that privilege with the green stone. The town elders terrified of what may happen should they anger the great necromancer agreed but paid Kharadron trade fleets to carry envoys of their own to the other grand cities of men. Months past and the fleets returned with scholars, wizards and soldiers from Sigmars armies. The tribesmen were given a choice, bend the knee to Sigmar and receive the help of the combined forces of a collegiate and free-guild or continue as a independent tribe and take their chances with the dead. The elders agreed to a man that Sigmar would now rule. Over the coming years the city and it's standing army grew, gone were the tribesmen. Now there was a battalion of well trained and due to the wealth of the town well armed soldiers, joined by a small contingent from the new colleges of magic. The 'tithe' as it had become known due to the green gem being almost exactly one tenth of the ore removed from the mines was still sent to Nagash and the people of Candle Heart lived good lives. The duradin had taken to crafting grand statues of Sigmars chosen the Stormcast and the city had become something of a destination to travelling diplomats and adventurers. It was the scholar Karlfus Drenn that made the shocking discovery. The gems were no precious stone, they were the souls of the dead absorbed by the mountains and compressed into gems. The city was in uproar when it found out that for the last seventeen years they had been giving away their loved ones..they demanded it stop. For the first time in the history of Candle Heart the city prepared for war. They were wiped out within moments of declaring Nagash enemy, the great necromancer cast one dreadful spell and the sands of the Endless dessert lashed the city, people died screaming as their skin was sand blasted from their skeleton. The great necromancer laughed at the arrogance of man and prepared the incantation to reap the souls of dead. The god king Sigmar mourned the loss of his men and prepared the incantation to set the souls to peace. As both mighty warriors spells swept over the city the souls were bound to the carcasses...neither god could gain the upper hand. And so they awoke, bodies dead but souls intact and the will of the people to reap revenge on Nagash. Only necromancers death can finally stutter out the flame on the people of Candle Heart. Hi all, I'm going to use this thread to keep track of my freeguild army as it takes shape for AOS2 Now I'm no writer but I thought I'd make an attempt to have a narrative army that is also used in matched play. I rolled up a free city and ended with the city of Candle Heart, set in the realm of Shyish. Populated by humans in the most part but with it's rich mines Duradin have been drawn to the city. The rumours of reptilian ghosts are brought up around the bars and campfires but quickly forgotten come daylight. I rolled three significant features getting ore deposits, duradin masons with a liking for statues of stormcast and the lingering catastrophe...This led me to having a go at that little narrative. So the plan is to get ready for path to glory first..10 swords, 10 xbows and 10 guns plus a general. From there I will probably just take the army to 1k then onto 2k. I hope you enjoy the ride, please leave any comment and suggestions.

    Hey guys! Im so excited to show you all my finished 1000pts of Stormcast! Thank you so much everyone for your comments and likes. It’s helped a lot when my energy level was low after already painted for 8 hours to put my commissions aside and pick up a stormcast and keep going!

    +++MOD HAT TIME+++ I've just hidden a number of posts going over if the rules were right, or if this is a public forum and other bits. I can't believe that what started off as such a positive post from Ben has devolved to such an extent. Cutting to the quick, the rules are the rules - if you don't like them that's fine, find another forum to frequent with rules that you do like, we're not keeping you here against your will and bear no ill will if you chose to do that. If you do choose to stay here - brilliant! But follow the rules and please don't criticise the mods for upholding them and trying to keep this place friendly. We don't want to ban people or issue warning points (it leaves a nasty taste in our mouths) but they're tools we need to resort to when things are getting out of hand.

    Hi all, just want to share this concept and work in progress I've been working on. I always loved the moonclan and regular orruks but think they were lacking a bit for AoS with the ironjawz. I set about creating the theme for an armoured Moonclan who scrapped together bits and bobs, I'll flesh out the lore and backstory eventually once I get more of this done. A very slow WIP of the first grot in his fully armoured form, still rocking the classic hood, stabba and shield. Looking to expand this into a full force, maybe some armoured squigs who knows, no limits with the greenskins. Still refining the paint but it's a good base. Happy for any C&C to be thrown my way too. Will be updating as the project moves forward.

    Am I the only one who thinks that some days this thread is a lot similar to the movie: Groundshog day? The tread goes: GW: Next hype train will be leaving in a few days. us: “whoo who this will be totally awesome! It’s guarranteed to be _________, I’ve felt it in my soul for months and even my fortune cookie told me that ______ will get a new updated________”. AFTER THE EVENT Us: “I am so dissapointed I feel like selling my 1000000pt army just to stick it to GW. GW hates me and they will never update my army just to anoy me”. Also Us: “Now there calm down sonnyboy. Back when I was a wee lad they only realeased a single new mini on the first morming of christmas every year. You kids don’t know how to appreciate what you have”. Us again: “please everyone this thread is about rumors! Not wishes, wants or tips on how to feed your cat”. Us also: “But there are no rumors and hoping for tinkerbell to update my army is also kind of a rumor.. kinda..”. Then some would be funny guy writes something like this and gets a time out by the moderators. GW: uh everyone next hype train will arriwe in a few weeks. Us: woooohooo THIS will be totally aweso....

    Fantasy did go that route, with 3k games being common. You dont want that. It will kill the flow of new players.

    Great lord no! When people start playing horde type armies anything over 1500 quickly bogs down into a mess. This system is fundamentally unsuited to big games due to how clumsy and time consuming pile-ins get with too many models. If the game gets too big with AoS you quickly start losing the things that make it good.

    Didn't realize these were up yet, apologies! Hard to keep track of what is out and what isn't... :) This update does have all the FW points updates (though I can see there are some I missed), but I'll be adding the FW allegiance abilities in the next update with Nighthaunt and Stormcast. If you see something that's missing or incorrect, let me know via a DM here. Thanks and happy list building!

    Hey there, Iam going to start this thread posting my progress on painting and building an dark wood elf army and some other minis just to learn or variety. While being in the hobby for about 4 years iam more the painter than player and realy like the artistic part of it. So for my "project", it will be longterm due to not having that much time and the time i spent converting and painting single miniatutes. So i start the thread with the first finished mini and one which is ready to prime. Hang on. Wildhunter and an pathfinder The next pictures will be the bday present to my gf. One of the first more showcase models i painted. Dave

    Hello, Following my acquisition of Soul wars, I'm now working on painting my first army for AoS with the nighthaunt. I just love the model and the final test model being done, it's time to show him! Here is the spirit torment, such a cool model, I just pinned him to a piece of wood on the base to limit the woobling effect ? I wanted something a bit different for the colour scheme, hope you like him! I'm already working on completing 10 chainrasp to follow up! Cheers, Anamnesis

    I completely understand and sympathize with your struggle (so to speak) with this. I, too, have had to tackle the issue. I solved it by giving in. I just buy it all, secure in the knowledge that as long as I have miniatures that remain unpainted, I cannot die. I am immortal.

    I say this as an Ork/Orruk player of about 25 years or so... Orc players who scream "WAAAGH!" at the top of their lungs, or loudly speak in Orky accents while gaming. I applaud the enthusiasm, but maybe try and figure out how to behave in a social setting - even one that involves pushing little plastic men around

    Hi there ! As a Death player and a fan of the Nighthaunt i can't be more happy with the new starter box and all the new stuff. I decided first to paint the Knight of Shroud, a really beautiful miniature. I just change the base to have a larger one because i found it weird on the little one, i prefer to have the head in the center of the base. Next one the Purple Sun of Shyish. What a stunning idea to make magic alive ! I think this is one my new favorite thing in this new edition that's so much fun. I painted it like the light come from inside, like a "real" sun. And the army i will play soon. So next more Nighthaunt

    Hi Guys! It feels like ages but I have finally completed my first squad of longbeards! It contains a full set of custom shields, my first ever attempt at freehand and what I think will be the base design for my army moving forward. I have tried to improve my camera set up, but its still on a three year old beat up camera phone so not perfect. Hope you like them! Few things I found really difficult making these: The longbeard/hammerers feet are annoyingly unflat. I did the bases separately, and gluing them on was a pain. Unlike the kit shields, mine have a completely flat back, which again presents some problems when fitting them on. White paint is the worst. Painting tiny bits of faces poking through helmets is horrible! I had a joy painting the drummer's head (super proud of it) and was really enthusiastic about the rest, but helmet with a little bit of flesh is so hard! Looking forward to ironbreakers having just helmet + beard on show. Next up will be a gyrocopter. Apart from sticking my spare shield on the top of it, it won't really have much in the way of conversions. Still need to figure out how I am going to design the airborne guys. Doing my first copter will help though.
