  1. That's an excellent solution - thanks!
  2. Does anyone know of any third-party manufacturers of conversion parts who make flintlock rifles? You can find tons of companies making alternative parts for Imperial Guard (alternative lasguns and such), but very little folks making "steampunk" looking weaponry. I would like to make some steampunk-looking Free Guild/Cogfort defense units. Hoping to find some weapon parts to make handgunners.

    Yeah... pretty sure GW wouldn't keep cranking out Stormcast kits if they were the least liked faction.

    AoS 2 - Kharadron Overlords Discussion

    I mean if the stuff we actually have were to work effectively, I think that would satisfy most people. I can think of a couple new units to add to the range, but all's I really want is a more balanced army

    Bombardment is possible, but I don't see that as a model that stays on the board turn after turn. Personally I am thinking some kind of weird weather effect, and some sort of aerial monster that randomly attacks stuff - like the Megalofin that keeps getting mentioned in the fluff

    The Rumour Thread

    Actually no. The GW social media guys chimed in after the preview and basically stated that Stormvaults =/= Storm Chamber. Judging by other statements, it looks like Forbidden Power is probably more in line with what Malign Portents was.

    I mean it's pretty clear that they will eventually replace all 1st edition books. The question being exactly how eventual the "eventually" part of that sentence is. We might have a long wait.

    The spell part is that the fence is actually bursting out of the ground
  9. The effect you described is done in purpose. Psychology, humans have certain subconscious cues. We are trained to recognize certain features - head, shoulders, feet and hands - as "strong", if those features are exaggerated. So because miniatures are so small, GW (and most other mini sculpting companies) will exaggerate the head, feet, shoulders and hands of a given model, so that they look powerful and strong, when they are only about an inch and a half talk, and being viewed from about two feet away on a table. Unfortunately, sometimes this technique isn't executed very well, and the effect just looks chunky and wierd. The Free People look this way. Cadians from the 40k line suffer from this, as well.

    You can also find references to the "Cogmen" - a whole race of mechanical people who live in Chamon. People who cling to the concept that the Mortal Realms are aesthetically just a clone of the Old World, are just fooling themselves.

    Age of Sigmar - Technological Level

    I mean back in the Malign Portents era, there what a short story in the Community site that featured a librarian who had mechanical leg attachments that extended like a pair of telescopes, allowing him to reach books on a really high shelf. And this was in the Realm of Death - not traditionally a really high tech level area. I think AoS is pretty obviously steampunk - at least in the main human regions.

    I actually disagree with your assertion that Skaven deserve a big release on the level of Gloompite. Skaven have a HUGE bench of really cool looking models - quite a big difference between what the Moonclan/Gloomspite were working with. Really, as far as models go, Skaven have a few old stinkers that need an upgrade (Skyre acolytes, etc), but the rest of their model line looks really good, with lots of plastic units and characters that really reflect the "look" that GW seems to be going for now. Honestly, they just need a few kits here and there to replace old resin stuff. MAYBE one single brand new kit to get players excited (probably a terrain piece). After that, add in the obligatory Endless Spells, themed dice and warscrolls, and Skaven would be good to go.

    AoS 2 - Gloomspite Gitz Discussion

    Very much agreed. Personally I am more interested in spiders and Troggoths, rather than Squigs. That being said, I have no interest in running ALL spiders or ALL Troggoths. I'd just rather use them to supplement an existing Grot army. So far the only Squigs I run is sometimes 6 or 12 Cave Squigs, just to fill out that last battle line

    AoS 2 - Gloomspite Gitz Discussion

    How have people been finding the Endless Spells in this army? Any clear MVP's for you folks? I feel like I want to use the mushroom in a quasi-competetive way, but I'm just not sure it's going to work out. Are the spiders worth it for non-Spiderfang casters? I have a decent amount of spell-using opponents. Has the bad moon spell been useful at all?

    Actually Chamon is the home realm of the Kharadron Overlords as well - for obvious reasons. So yeah that's a lot of stuff happening in that realm. I could definitely see some plot developements happening in that area. Cool stuff - it happens to be my favorite of the Mortal Realms.
