  1. Good job @Greasygeek it is one of the greatest feelings when it happens. They all look brilliant too. I can only hope my banshees, Lady Olyinder and such look as good. What did you do to get the white on there clothes look so perfect?
  2. I have used Stormcast pretty much since AoS hit, just over 5000pts of that. I have about 10000 pts of Slaves to Darkness (Warriors of Chaos really), Wood Elves and Dark Elves that I retired simply down to square bases. Shame really. Currently I have about 4000pts of Nighthaunt that I am painting up, haven't used them yet though.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.

  5. 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?
  6. Imagine what the Keeper of Secrets is going to finally look like ?
  7. 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!
  8. 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.
  9. 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 ?
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. #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!

  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  15. But I think what we are getting at is that you won't get one without the other.
