    AoS 2 - Clan Skyre Discussion

    I can't really add anything of use to the discussion, but I want to say this: Woo-hoooww! I would love to see that army on the table! Although the next comments sound like it's going to be a hard fight for you, it somehow sounds like a lot of fun. So. I hope, you'll have fun with it an may post some photos! Thanks for sharing!

    AoS 2 - Clan Verminus / Skaven Discussion

    Hello-hi everyone around here, a friend of mine and me are going to enter Age of Sigmar. We both don't have very much time and decided to start with Skirmish in order to have some nice Minis and something playable quite soon. I already bought some stuff like the Skirimish-Rules, the Path to Glory Book, some Battletome (not Skaven Pestilens yet), but everything only pre 2.0. Now I wonder what I would really need to buy. As far as I can see, the Core Rules are still free, the Warscrolls are also free and online, and we will skip stuff like Battalions and Artifacts for the first Games. So the only thing, that got me wondering wether I need buy Grand Alliance Chaos or the Skaven Pestilens Battletime was the Fact that I had so difficulties to get my hands on the Deathrunner Warscroll and wasn't able to find a Warscroll for the Giant Rats (outside of the Compendium). So my question is: How much does a Skaven Player really need the Grand Alliance Chaos Book and the Skaven Pestilens Battletome in order to start playing (I want to by the Battletome anyway. but would prefer to spend my money on minis fist, hehe)? Thanks-thanks everyone!

    Ah, yeah, of-course-course! 😊 I just finished reading the 7th edition army book and they really mention the backstabbing and megalomania at least twice on every page. And regarding my question: It was quite stupid anyway. I tend to forget how vast the Age of Sigmar setting is and that virtually anything is okay, if you can come up with a plausible or even only entertainung story for it, hehe.

    AoS 2 - Clan Skyre Discussion

    Thanks a ot @Lord_Skrolk and @michu! I plan on putting him in charge of my small force, that fit's very nicely and leads to the next question: From the 7th Edition Skaven Army Book I know that there has been an hiearchy of warlords within each Skaven Clan. If I am not mistaken the rules of those days didn't reflect that (or at least very well), and currently there's just one "Warlord". But putting one into a force and assuming that he is not a Clan Leader, but somewhere a bit down the hiearchy (like part of a war council) is probably quite okay, isn't it?

    AoS 2 - Clan Skyre Discussion

    Hey there, just a small question: If I read the Warscroll Builder correctly the Archwarlock is the most expensive "regular" Skaven Hero (meaning it's a "common" Skaven that rose among the Ranks of the Skaven to it's current position – unlinke the Verminlord Daemons – and he doesn't have a powerful companion, like the Screaming Bell or Boneripper). Does that imply that it's currently the most powerfull regular Hero Character? (I'm asking for background story-building reasons, but I try to keep the backstory in line with the rules / crunch …)

    AoS 2 - Clan Verminus / Skaven Discussion

    I just found out the Skweel Gnawtooth the former Clan Moulder Packmaster Hero has almost the same Backstory as Canis Wolfborn, which … just makes Skaven even more awesome. I was so happy about this coincidence, that I thought, I have to share it with someone, yes-yes. I definitely have to take a closer look into the Space Wolves product range for conversion option, hehe.

    Regarding the Stormvermin 30/500 topic from Friday: The new Warscroll-Builder is online and Stormvermin are-cost 30/420 and 40/500 it says …

    Mayple's Skaven Science

    Oh-oh, that makes me curious-inquisitive! Do you focus-concentrate on a single realm-thing, or several-many? And if I hadn't mentioned it before: This Blog is the single most inspiring thing I've found about Age of Sigmar and even the whole Hobby. Thanks, thanks, many-many thanks!

    Let´s Talk Skyre

    Ah! Thanks a lot! That's great! I will need some Warp-lightning cannon anyway so that's good to know. And I can do better search on ebay, hehe. Thanks again!

    Let´s Talk Skyre

    Ah, yeah, googleing … stupid me, I should have thought about that myself, hehe. But thanks! On a different topic: The Skyre Acolytes are not the freshest nor the most beautifull minis, esp. as they come in Units of 5 and there are only three different models. I think about converting some myself (using skaven an mechanicum minis/bits), but I wonder wether there's any source of skaven heads with gas masks / respirators other than the Acolytes (maybe third party bits). Does anyone know some?

    Let's chat Skaven tactics

    Yes, yes, I'll probably end up with those guys … but … there are sooo many other great Skaven Units, so that 400 points of allies seems to small for all the awesome Units, I want to play, hehe.

    Let´s Talk Skyre

    Humble greetings everyone! I have a small question: The "Enginecovens" mentioned in the Generals Handbook 2017 … from which Book / Source do they come from? Thanks in advance!

    Let's chat Skaven tactics

    Now that I think about it … I correct my question: Is there any Chaos Battleline Unit that is worth to be prefered over Clanrats within a mostly Skaven (Skyre) Army?
