  1. The table is all Alder just with two different stains- the cabinet was just an in stock piece at the furniture store and I don't remember what kind of wood! I had the cabinet first, so I tried to keep the table matching. As far as the wife- well, that's the luckiest thing I've had happen in my life yet!
  2. https://www.etsy.com/shop/Terrainify I thought he ended up rectifying the problem really well- he created and sent a whole new batch. When I tried to return the pieces that did not make snuff, he told me to keep them, so now I have a LOT of terrain. I won't be using the second half once my hagglethorn hollow order comes (if it ever does) so if you are interested in those pieces that are functionally the same but missing the shading and highlights in the rocks...could be a good opportunity for both of us! The cabinet was from a local furniture store (though I doubt it's unique to this store)-I'm pretty sure it's usual use is for the display of china and various dinnerware.
  3. As someone who started out with Seraphon, I'll just say that this was a very common occurrence for me when I wanted to buy anything 2 years ago.
  4. Update for a year later! Filled up the cabinet (to the brim) and had to even convert the closet to extra storage. The top shelf is a large death army (120 skeletons, 40 grave guard, and a bunch of knights etc). I haven't played with those yet. Though many (the vast majority) are only started, and not finished, I have painted every model here myself over the last two years (yesterday was my 2-year anniversary).
  5. Going to update this because it's a year later and even though I STILL don't have my kickstarter "Hagglethorn Hollow" (which will be very bad-ass and gaming table related) I HAVE added two original paintings to dress up the room. I also added shelves into the closet to hold even more models, but I suppose that's a picture for the collection thread instead! I had the goblin painting ("Moon Hunters") commissioned from a superb artist named Bill Carman but the only information he was given was "goblins and the bad moon." I was interested in what someone who doesn't play would come up with! The other picture wasn't commissioned and is less warhammer related obviously, but I still want to show it off because it's in the room, plus we were able to procure the original painting from Scott C, another one of my favorite artists. I'll be back when Hagglethorn Hollow finally gets here!
  6. He should have a 1/3 chance to NOT teleport (on a one or two the teleportation fails and then he can't move at all! on a 3-4 he teleports but can't move, and on a 5-6 he can teleport and move). When he teleports, he must place 9" away from ANY enemy unit, so you can put your long distance things or objective capture units spaced out a bit to block an important area. I've found that against seraphon you want to take first turn, and run onto objectives. They are VERY good at mobility, but their actual fighting ability is pretty awful so if you get on the objective first it will be hard for him to shift you. I rarely shoot at heroes to be honest due to "Look out, Sir!" so make sure you are using that rule and have units near a vulnerable hero. The other option is to engage the bastilidon because he can only shoot at what he's locked in combat with, (although it's hard to kill him without a tuned mortal wound list, you can tie up a 280 point unit for pretty cheap by throwing almost dead units into it each turn and summoning them back with bloodtithe points). It is a bit harder for you due to being chaos demons- if you were mortal units I don't think you'd have much trouble at all!
  7. I've not seen this anywhere but here. Is it true? What else do we know?!
  8. I bought shares that are up 50% so I've been a happy camper. I'm not really an expert (though I do hold a significant amount of shares in other companies or funds that I keep track of) and there's a few things that stand out. It occurs to me that most things trade at a P/E that's super high based on expected growth. That means, to me, that most stocks are valued based on perception rather than just a solid, undervalued companies, that will still only make you money when someone else values it higher than you do. Even if GW shows healthy profits, I just don't know if volume will be there to make a huge crazy run (like BYND) . 1. Since I am US based, every transaction incurs a 50$ trade fee so I only want to buy in large increments of 10,000$+. Most retail investors, including me, want to buy small amounts monthly to average their dollar cost 2. Such low volume being traded means all the jumps up (or down) happen at once...so people might be scared off by what would be perceived volatility 3. Relatively high share prices also price out some value investors or just GW fanboys who can pick up more models for the money Here's hoping that the GW keeps going strong!
  9. Etsy- I got printed trays from someone called Mack the Maker and he will probably print 3d print different formations if needed. I ordered some and the material is very similar in look and feel to the GW bases so it's exactly what I wanted. I had him make me a custom sized Dread Saurian base, with the same bevel edge and...slope? of the official GW bases as well. Turned out great!
  10. So much depends on how you intend to play the game. What do you NEED? Just models really, because the rules are free and the warscrolls are free. What do you need to play in most groups I've seen? Models, Battletome, General's Handbook What can you use if you are really into it? Models, Battletome, General's Handbook, Malign Sorcery Start Collecting is similar. It's always a good value compared to buying the models individually, but whether or not the units are what you want varies. Depending on the army it's useful toward a competitive list, or it's totally not (seraphon), but that again only matters based on how you want to play it.
  11. I was just reading about the protoaxite fossils and in it's time period (like 400 million years ago) it was a giant 25 foot tall mushroom that towered over the lowly plants of the time. Maybe they're mad about the plants overtaking them.
  12. I must be a really perfect person because I like playing the good guys! Out of chaos though, I also like Tzeench. Not for even close to the same reasons you do, but I like their bright colors and the crazy faces of the pink, blue, and brimstone horrors. Pink horrors are actually cute to me, much like the saurus and cold ones (often described as "derpy") and goblins/squigs that I have so, so many of.
  13. I do! I teach the game a lot and often when doing so I try to finagle non-nerd friends into playing, which means keeping it to warscrolls and core rules only. After about 25 such games, I have found that I actually prefer it that way, although I'd add in allegiance abilities to help keep the armies having that little additional flavor. Battalion rules, artifacts, and command traits apparently add more complexity than I'm into, even though that's how I played the first 8 months of my AoS life. Nobody I know uses realm or terrain features anyway (although many regulars take the best artifacts from realms that they can). It's hard to go back to all that convolution; I find myself playing simple games with my wife and non-gamestore friends more and more frequently and playing the experienced people less and less.
  14. Have you painted everything yourself? Even if not, still very cool. But if so, this is a lifetime achievement award! I've made good progress towards 5,000 points of gitz but it still seems like 2 more years of painting!
  15. You get to pick one command "trait" (with some restrictions based on the book) for your general. You get one artifact for free that you can put on any applicable hero. You can get another artifact for each battalion you take in your list. Spell lore is in your battletome. What you can run together is in your battletome. Sounds like you need ....the BATTLETOME!
