    AoS 2 - Nighthaunt Discussion

    Hey guys, acquired a bunch of Nighthaunt in a trade recently (about 4000pts). Pretty much got all the models but Revenants and Harridans. My question is, I obviously see a lot of Legion based death armies, over just pure Nighthaunt, is that a coincidence on the strength of the army alone, or are there decent-ish battalions that people suggest I look at? Looking to make a 2000pt list so I know what to paint first. All suggestions welcome! Don't mind adding potential allies either!

    Well, just over 5000 pts. Though I think Stormcast is a bit soft compared to some of these cheap pt/troop armies. All painted apart from the Lord Arcanum on Gryph Charger who is getting the Duncan treatment at the moment.

    The trap of wanting to be unique

    Just never rush any decisions or go all in too quickly. I have suffered the problem for a while now, and after about 2 years might just be ready to dip into my next big project! I always find its the stuff you didn't think about that tends to stick the longest in the end, and that I have enjoyed the most. Much like a lot things gaming related try not to get overhyped about something, that has made me fail in the past, perhaps do the army selection more on a whim with it all there in front of you to just try?

    The Rumour Thread

    Imagine what the Keeper of Secrets is going to finally look like ?
  5. Though I have a few fantasy armies that are from 8th, I have only really collected and used my Stormcast the entire Age of Sigmar cycle. Given I have a large amount of an old Warriors of Chaos force though, this Beasts of Chaos battletome is looking mighty tempting!

    AoS 2 - Beasts of Chaos Discussion

    Has there ever been a basing chart for these guys yet? None of the descriptions on the community have sizes, and the ones that do are squares.
  7. Well everyone needs to start praying outside the UK soon that Brexit doesn't ****** up shipping prices even more! ? The fact that the £ is also plummeting can't be great for that either? Still, at least you don't have Australia's awesome problem ?
  8. Because painting is such a massive part of the hobby really, I wouldn't advise getting something that you think you won't enjoy painting. The first two options are sensible really. I recouped half the cost of my Soulwars box selling the nighthaunt to someone else. So you can spend that money getting another box or the generals handbook and paints.
  9. I think that it is nice that they are trying to get people to write more varied lists like the article suggests. And its awesome that they gave people so much variety in the first place. I guess the one counter arguement to the whole approach is that some armies can't write these varied lists because of the unit choices they have available. It is the cookie-cutter/flavour of the month approach that has given me anxiety about going to these events and doing badly because I don't play often at all. If everyone is encouraged to write more varied lists it can only improve things no?
  10. #AoS2 Hype May not be here as much as I used too, but still love coming to read stuff here all the time in the few spare minutes you get in the day as an adulty, adult. Keep it positive everyone and thanks @Ben!

    Let's chat Stormcast Eternals

    To be fair, at the absurdly low price point the current starter set is, its not a bad thing to get before its replaced. The models in it are still really useful in a lot of lists and a decent way to get a bigger model count at a lower price point. Like you say though that Thunder and Blood box set is pretty decent if you don't want the Lord Celestant on Dracoth and the book (which is a pretty decent 96 page supplement with a bunch of stuff in). Your other options are obviously the start collecting boxes which are only marginally cheaper than the starter box and have half the amount of stormcast models in. The other option is getting the blightwar box, but honestly as an introduction to stormcast and the game they are a bit weaksauce by themselves.

    "AOS 2." - The story of the set

    I think that nails it to be fair, much like the End Times tomes did for 8th Edition fantasy, things like Malign Portents did a massive thing to the lore releasing minimal models and actually got excited about the story a little that usually wouldn't. Perhaps we will see this kind of interaction more often?

    "AOS 2." - The story of the set

    But I think what we are getting at is that you won't get one without the other.

    "AOS 2." - The story of the set

    So really what we want is a Dark Imperium style box for AoS. I can't be the only one thinking that we are just going back to Bookhammer of old where we all need multiple rule books to play again. I thought we'd moved on! I do think for sanitys sake though they should try and keep the rules seperate and in the generals handbook rather than give us a giant book with fluff and rules (and that costs a small fortune) that just gets replaced/updated 2 months later. Because as nice as that Dark Imperium rulebook is, half of it has got updated/FAQd now so people are have a giant book where half the material has been updated in some way

    "AOS 2." - The story of the set

    Thing is, unless they update rules, why replace the starter box? It still sells and is ridiculously cheap. I think times of late have proven that doing one off boxes like Forgebane and Blightwar help push the general narrative and these are technically what your on about doing lets be honest, but do they really give you more than just a summarised view of what happens? I still think you need to sell books hard to get a decent fleshed out narrative. So why not just have an end times style book release maybe? On another note, as someone who wishes he had the time and money to read/listen to the narrative more, I agree they are ludicrously expensive, but the same could be said for any novel or book in the world, its just unfortunate that the hobby we love has lots multiple writers, writing for a universe rather than something like Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings, heck even Star Wars and Star Trek who do have a few writers don't pump out anywhere near as much.
