  1. 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!

    I've only had a chance to play one game with them so far, but it wasn't easy to keep huge units of stuff wholly within 12" of the loonshire, because it has to be a few inches into your own deployment zone. At least for my game, I couldn't afford to sit back and get shot away so I had to move things up into his face ASAP. As for the squig herd, I don't mind them running off and doing mortal wounds- it's far preferable to them dying in combat where you don't get the 4+ MWs. Anyway, back to that game I mentioned, once I GOT in oh man they look good. It's hard to move 120 grots up a board quickly but I had almost every opposing unit all netted up and -1 to hit with two max units of grots spread out pretty well.
  3. Not as if we were humans in the realms, but what if the models were alive and still their model size. AND their motives/basic behavior was how it is in the game. So khorne dudes are yelling at you and challenging you to meet them in combat, pink horrors throw little tiny fireballs at you when you come downstairs to the kitchen, but the stormcast would try to protect you unless you succumbed to the evil of tzeench's call. I have a lot of armies, mostly seraphon though, so I'd be glad they can protect me pretty well. But they'd have to scare off the nasty squigs with their huge mouths to bite you with, hordes of goblins, tons of speedy slannesh seekers, and more. Archaon or the dread saurian have a decent potential to hurt you, but at the same time you could probably smack them away with a tennis racket. The scariest to me, might be skaven pestilens and their penchant for poisioning your milk at night. Felwater troggoths puking smelly fish guts all over your cabinet- yuck.
  4. I have posted pictures of my terrain somewhere before but in case you (or others) haven't seen it I think it does a good job of adding tactical decision making. Because it has stepped platforms to all bluffs, mesas, whatever the word is, I have experimented with a house rule that you can't climb over more than 2" of terrain (anything higher than 2" is impassable without FLYING) and you have to go around to the path to get up. It's been AWESOME and has added a ton to the game. I bought these from a seller online (terrainify) and to get them pre-painted and flocked, yes it's expensive, but they also have options for buying 3D print files or painting and flocking your own. I have decided I will paint my own models, but life's too short to paint terrain! I have also ordered the pre-painted version of hagglethorn hollow and if you haven't seen that- check it out https://hagglethorn-hollow.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders! A lot of what I'm seeing wishlisted is being made by them. I'll show that off when it gets here (allegedly 9/19).

    Tokens for AoS?

    I drew these tokens for my seraphon army early on- I have a short description of what they do on the other side. I've now used them in so many games I easily remember. The first set were on some glossy dots I bought of amazon and they sucked to work with but it's all I had. I found some NON-glossy from the same company and I think you'll agree that the second set (the constellations) is much better, because they actually hold the ink.

    Just finished gluing the final 20 grots and can now finally say that all my preorders and friends are assembled (I still reserve the right to add more to this army)! Just wanted to show them off to reward myself for busting my booty these last two weeks.

    Greenskin start collecting gone

    No it didn't; I know because I bought it! It had a chariot, two warbosses (one on foot, one on pig), and 20 regular orcs. All were on round bases. And for the record I like my pygmy boars on chariot! I'm almost done painting it.

    Wait until you assemble your loonshrine. I'm notoriously bad at getting pieces together so maybe it's just me, but I'm not sure how those two big ones were ever supposed to fit together without giant gaps somewhere

    I got it from Terrainify. A basic set is 800$ and with shipping that goes up to about 1K. I also have four additional pieces that I ordered separately. I have a lot! However, I have two sets- and I also ordered the full hagglethorn hollow kickstarter which should be coming up in the summer, so I want to make room for it. If you're interested in this terrain, I'd be willing to offer the "less-painted" versions (most people don't even notice until I point it out) for a good discount.

    I think they need more high ground types of terrain. I was interested in changing up the battlefield more, so I got these 3D printed ones. I have been house-ruling it so that you can only climb up 2", anything higher is impassable unless you are flying. This terrain has steppes, so that there's always a path to get up there if you want, but you can't jump down either! It's added a lot to the line of sight, the path to objectives or saving a low wound hero. I don't use any special terrain rules yet, but I'll start adding a bit because I want to use the goblin loonshrine

    You haven't even seen the bottom yet Full of grots in these next two weeks, though once I paint them up more I may promote them to top shelf!

    The Great Hobby Purge

    I just look at it as a lifetime goal. I build everything immediately so I can play with it (most of my matches these days are vs family or friends who don't have their own armies so we keep it simple) and then I paint whatever I want whenever I feel like it. This has resulted in many well-painted models! Just...spread out over 8 factions so it's not always the best looking on the table, YET! Whenever I play and I see a little more color on the field it motivates me to add some more so that the next game will be that much better looking. And I have more emotional attachment to my painted guys, so they become defacto heroes of their company, being removed last whenever possible! I have so many unpainted models that I truly believe it will take over 10 years to accomplish, even with my painting a bit nearly every day, therefore I don't stress or worry about it. There's calm in knowing and accepting it can never be done

    Proud (or should I be ashamed) of how much I've built and painted as I approach my one year anniversary of starting warhammer! Seraphon was all I did until recently (now I've got pestilens, slaves to darkness, stormcast, death, and have pre-ordered a large goblin force, and my wife's slannesh take up half the bottom shelf). Hopefully now that the cabinet will be completely full I will quit buying and coloring in those primed or grey models.
