  1. Looks like we’re not gonna get some models for a while everyone, Nurgle clogged the toilet at GW and then this happened: https://www.nottinghampost.com/news/nottingham-news/games-workshop-headquarters-nottingham-shut-6249044.amp?fbclid=IwAR3T7ctBWyguyaSiT8ysclKDglm65Ml8HT5LOdsx5m0_Vp-4pejwLuo-USU
  2. Unfortunately I can’t help you, @Neverchosen, cause I mostly have the opposite problem. currently my two “main” armies are Hedonites and Gravelords/Tomb Kings duking it out in the heart of an ancient swamp. While both factions would be boosted by the battle forces, I’m stuck with deciding how to work some of the units into the narrative. my skeletal legions work with vampires, in fact there’s a knightly order dedicated to Khsar, god of the desert, named “The Order of the Red Sand” who serve him and him alone, to say nothing of the priestesses of Lunaghast, the Consort of Sekhubis. But I don’t have a place for the vengorian lord, and it’s bothering me cause it’s an awesome model!!! the Hedonites are admittedly less of an issue, as no matter how I build the calvary and myrmidesh, I’ll have bits leftover that I can use to convert the Slaves to Darkness start collecting to the cause(or use on some of the Disciples of Tzeentch range I’m allying in to make them fit aesthetically). Though the ad-mech box still remains a problem, and my pile of shame is already decently large….
  3. The struggle is real @Neverchosen, I'm bouncing between the soulblight, slaanesh, and admech boxes right now.
  4. First the Ogre Kingdoms campaign and now this?! CA is spoiling us today!!
  5. Same, @KingBroddhow about you? Also, I might be picking up two of the battleforce boxes this year: the Soulblight and Slaanesh boxes are just too good.
  6. Honestly? the most realistic answer to your question is through conversions/kitbash and good old fashion creativity. Bataar, for example, seems to be an entire nation-state of the old "Arabian Nights" bazaar, therefore for a decent base you could kit bash the Slaanesh and Tzeentch mortals with some order factions such as (may Hashut and Settra forgive me) the Lumineth Scinari and Wind Temple kits.
  7. I'm sorry for potentially forcing the thread off topic (a rare occasion, as we all know), but can we appreciate the detail on the CA models for the ogre butcher and firebelly? I mean seriously, if this is what we can expect for AOS when these molds do get updated, I know a few people on this site will be very happy.
  8. I'm fairly certain that Doom Knights will be a thing in TOW, but until then we could probably convert them using the new chaos warrior kit and tzaangor enlightened.
  9. While I’m personally happy for more news/rumors regarding the release of TOW and the rules that it will use, I’m more concerned about what model kits will be produced. In other words, when is GW gonna bring back the plastic Tomb Kings kits from 8th?!
  10. THAT'S IT!!! *Waives khopesh in the air* UNLEASH THE NECROSPHINX!!!!! To answer your question: First you asked @Neverchosen how one could worship Chaos and Nagash, then @MitGas quoted you and called you an "arrogant elf," which you corrected to the AOS version: Aelf. Plus, we're all still upset that there hasn't been a teaser for either a new faction, chaos dwarfs, Tomb Kings, or updated Seraphon/Skaven while CSM is about to get a massive update/expansion.
  11. Be gone Elf, or else the Legions of LONG LOST NEHEKHARA AND THE DARK GODS WILL TRAMPLE YOU!!!
  12. To paint/build My Lord of Change based Nagash conversion: Sekhubis.
  13. @KingBrodd!!! COME QUICK YOUR SWOLENESS!!! OGOR PIRATES OFF THE PORT BOW!!!!
  14. That’s a lovely new necromancer in the making.
  15. I am now obligated to put this link in the thread: PIRATES AND CHAOS DWARFS! LETS GO LADS!!!
  16. ALLLLLLL ABOARD! NEXT STOP ON THE HYPE TRAIN, DISAPPOINTMENT AND EXCITEMENT!!!!!
  17. I have wrestling practice at 9am Central time, So I'll probably read half of it on my way to college. If we see something regarding Chaos Dwarfs, I hope that they mention that the models will be useable in The Old World, or at the very lease the design team from CA was somewhat involved. I also want/hope that the Furnace Kings (I'll keep using that faction name until proven otherwise), can take marks from other chaos gods as a kind of "contract" system, while still keeping Hashut's blessing. What do you guys think? @Neverchosen, @Public Universal Duardin? In regards to the Heresy, I would love to see White Scars and Death Guard get some new models, for the Scars I'd like to see Jaghatai released in Glorious Resin, and maybe a return of the Mark II Scars kit. On the DG side, I'd love to see the Plague marines they showed off on the Warhawk novel cover.
  18. @Neverchosen, I think we can both agree that Thufir Hawat and Mentats in general were vastly underused in the first movie, here’s hoping they get treated better in the second! Now then, on to the Sardaukar, thanks for pointing out the Mongolian influence, and I agree that making them power armored was an interesting and fun choice. My one big complaint with the movie was the loss of some of the politics being played out, such as Duke Leto securing the Smugglers allegiance, and the arguments between Jessica and Thufir. On the subject of Warcry cultists, I feel that they need to expand the current cults a bit more, with either lore, famous members, or a specialized units like the Necromunda Gangs are getting. That would probably go a long way in making them stand out and maybe make them a more versatile tool for S2D armies.
  19. @Neverchosen I saw it in IMAX Sunday night, it was great. I’m still trying to figure out what culture they based the Sardaukar on….. I might be buying the art book soon. On the issue of slaughterborn I will now throw in my two bits: I don’t really care about the issue. I can see why people are upset with yet another barbarian themed Warcry band, but can’t we just accept the fact that we’ve only seen one model so far? Who knows what the rest will look like?

  21. Name you source, or at least state if they work at GW.
  22. There was talk of hippos before this rumor of pangolin/platypus monsters. In particular I said that I would convert them into Tomb Kings flavored Mortis Engines if they were released.
  23. Zamses the Ever-Joyful, First of His Name, Lord of The City of Vulturopolis, Chosen of Sekhubis, and many more titles besides gazed upon his court from his throne of polished mangrove and crocodilian hide as the relentless tide of courtiers and advisors, both mortal and undead, brought him news of his kingdom. The ancient monarch's mind thought that he should feel discomfort from the humidity in the air, but the ancient spells and wards that kept his soul within his preserved corpse prevented such a notion. "How much longer must I sit here?" he asked the being standing beside his throne through the brittle remains of the scarred smile that earned him his most prominent title. The skeleton turned its bat helmed head towards its king, "Be at peace my king," the guard spoke with the voice of Camazhut, Zamses' boyhood friend and Captain of The Tomb Guard "We only have to deal with the "Vizier" from the City of Wolves.`` Zamses let out a chuckle at his friend's bluntness, "Very well, make sure your axe is ready to send his soul to Lord Sekhubis so that He might hear the scoundrel's final thoughts." Camazhut nodded his head, and hefted the vulture headed great axe into both hands, the pale witch fire glowing from his helm's eye sockets reflecting off the oxidized bronze of the blade. Before signaling the guards to let in their wretched guest. The necromancer hobbled into the court, his wrinkled hands clinging to his short walking stick of gnarled wood. His tattered robes smelt of sea salt and rotten flesh, and were covered in stains from various liquids. Peeking out from various tears in the cloth were the red eyes of the rats and other grave animals that he used to spy upon Zamses’ enemies, and his people when he thought he could get away with it. Behind him came one of corpses of the famed Korsagi Ogors, though instead of their preferred axe the shambling corpse was holding a large mirror of Shade Glass. “Glory to you, Oh Protector of the Old Ways.” the old man wheezed through his rotting teeth, his pales yellowed with age and past bouts with disease. “I bring you news of the most dire sort.” “Then speak, Servant of The Hound of The Cairns, I do not have time for your riddles.” Zamses intoned, hiding the humour in his voice as some of the mortal attendants giggled at the proceedings. “As you wish my lord,” the necromancer answered, before turning to his Ogor bodyguard and ordering it to put down the mirror with the utmost care. Once the mirror was on the floor the necromancer began to chant in the guttural tongue of Ulfenkarn, revealing a vision of Soul-Vine Swamp. The vision was through the eyes of one of numerous direwolf corpses that had begun to gather in the region due to Vulturopolis’ alliance with the Vyrkos dynasty, and it was an alarming one. A procession of horse drawn wagons and steam driven fortresses were making their way through the swampland, from atop massive mobile pulpits priests of various creeds were encouraging the faithful to cut down and burn the vines that were the namesake of these lands. Marching ahead of this procession were warriors clad in blue and gold armor, with one of the stern-faced warriors holding aloft a banner that left no doubts upon who they serve. “So Sigmar has discovered our haven” Zamses muttered under his breath, aware of the murmurs that were spreading through his court, before coming to a horrible conclusion. “My king, if Urtem was able to discover the servants of the Storm God so quickly-” Camazhut began to whisper to him, before Zamses interrupted him. “Then who knows how long it will be before the Daemon-Hag Aesha and The Greenskin slavers discover them as well….” Zamses finished, before once again turning to Urtem. “Thank you oh wise one, for delivering this warning.” The necromancer bowed his head in deference to the ancient king “I live to serve, you my lord, and through you The One Who Mourns and Praises the Dead.” “Then deliver this message to your vampiric patrons: Sigmar’s ilk have trespassed on my lands, and while I do not know what they seek, I do not wish for them to bring their wars upon my people. If they can spare their grave-barracks I promise them one half of any prisoners taken in the coming battles.” As the necromancer and his bodyguard left, Zamses let out a dry chuckle before turning to two of the skeletal messengers that stood besides his throne. “Send word to lady Najma that her skills of diplomacy are needed once again, and that the necrotects are to awaken the war statuary,” he told one of the messengers, before turning to the other “Go to the Fanged Port and alert its captains, I want their fortress-barges on the water ways immediately.” As the messengers left to deliver his orders, Zamses turned once again to his captain of the guard. “Will I have your blade at my side, my friend?” He asked, thrusting his arm out in a near universal gesture. “Until the end, my friend, until the end.” Camazhut replied, grasping his king's decaying arm with his skeletal hand, completing the ancient warrior’s greeting. Zamses smiled once more, and this time both spirits knew it to be genuine. “Then let us go to war.” Hello Everyone, it's been a while since I actually posted something like this, but I figured I might as well do this if only to keep these ideas somewhere before I forget them. This thread was based off an idea that I posted on @Neverchosen's Oceanic Gameplay and Battles page, and serves as the background for three of my armies: My Tomb Kings themed Soulblight Gravelords, who are the stars of this first story blurb. While I am using the Rakaph symbol from Total War Warhammer II, please note that the army's actual colors are blue and green. My Godseekers Hedonites of Slaanesh, who will be done up in Mardi Gras colors (purple, green, gold/yellow). And finally,, my kruleboyz, who're rocking dirty blue and brown. The goal of this project is to showcase the ever escalating conflict between these three factions and their allies in my home-brewed corner of Ghur, theSoul-Vine Bayou. There exists an ancient legend that the swamplands are the resting place of a long hidden Goddess of Poisons and Magic. Whoever finds this missing deity will gain a major advantage over the other two factions, and will most likely cement their hold over the area.... While this is primarily a place for me to post my things, I am willing to incorporate other armies and lore into the setting if you're willing to share. The only rule that I have is that your army can't be directly lead by a named character, otherwise anything is fair game. Thank you for reading this post, and stay tuned for more as the War of Funerary Delights unfolds....
  24. Definitely 40K, but I feel like it needed to be posted here anyways.
