  1. Found a Feast of Bones this weekend when I ventured out to the FLGS for the first time in months, so I guess I’m all aboard the Ogor train! 😱 Having lots of fun converting these big lads already. Building the Scrap Launcher instead of the Iron Blaster leaves this guy free to become a Butcher!
  2. Well in a moment of weakness I ordered a Stardrake the day before it goes up price! Have always wanted one and my current Stormcast army really lacks any kind of centrepiece. Or.. maybe it was a moment of strength? The strength to DO WHAT IS NECESSARY 🧐
  3. Are the god-specific terrain features (Skull Alter, the Fane...) usable by S2D or can they only be taken in their own god allegiances? Like, the depravity refund is irrelevant for the Fane, but it's free and if I can burn an artefact to get re-roll all hits on my Karadrak for the rest of the game, well... I'll push the Diabolic Mantle button and then throw it on the pyre.
  4. Tried mixing some parts between old and new last evening. It takes a bit of work and not all of the poses support weapon swaps like this one (shield attached to the body), but the size and style of the weapons are an exact match. I’ve gone for a mix of old and new and a mix of shields and dual wielding in my unit. 😎
  5. Ah cool! I totally missed that they can be mixed. That’s a surprise honestly, after they cleaned up the Ardboys warscroll.
  6. I’m interested in this theory that dual hand weapons are now the best option for Chaos Warriors given they now have a reroll saves. I would have thought it’s kind of muddying their role and that keeping the mortal wound save would be preferable. Thoughts?
  7. I’ve gone for a mix, two ensorcelled weapons (which I think are just over all the most reliable and generalist option) plus a single fellspear so I can put a cool banner on it 😎
  8. I dunno, 6” pile in is pretty darn good in the Seeker cavalcade and this ability is basically that. Albeit it’s triggered off something in the battalion dying, but that’s typically not much of an ask! 😄
  9. That Battleforce box is looking like a pretty solid purchase at this point in time! It has everything you’d want ( plus a chariot you can use for a Chaos Lord on foot 😄) It’s the only one of those boxes my FLGS still has in stock!
  10. Noooo I’m gutted we lost he mounted sorcerer as I’d spent ages converting one up 😭 Pondering best loadout for Varanguard. Seems like the extra attacks from Ensorcelled Weapons are hard to beat, but perhaps I’m missing some combo. The will likely run mine as either Slaanesh or Undivided.
  11. Did the article not imply that the current Chaos warrior and Chaos knight kits will continue to be available alongside the new box? That was how I read it.
  12. They still look good and share the same aesthetic. I have 10 of the old knights and they aren’t going anywhere.
  13. I’m definitely in for the Stormcast box. I built my current army around the last one, so I have a lot of Vanguard and Original(tm), but no Sacrosanct. The Skaven one is tempting as I have the Spire of Dawn already and have been thinking about expanding that for some time. Still not sure if I want to paint 100 rats though 🤔
  14. Kind of hard to know - I don’t think there’s precedent for this? Like I don’t believe we’ve seen a re-release of a factions SC box before this point? That means either a) Just an AoS 2 packaging update which I think is most likely (that’s the point btw - the current box uses the old logo and branding) b) Same kits but with a new hero or c) totally new kits They’ve shown with the big 2-faction boxes that they will include an exclusive hero with otherwise old kits, but this would be first time doing that with a SC box. I would love to be surprised though of course.
  15. Excited to see if we get a reveal at the weekend. I’ve been painting up my Battleforce purchase in the colours of Slaanesh, but it would be very cool to be able to run an all mortal force with some Varanguard. The Start Collecting will be a reboxing. New kits don’t go in SC boxes.
  16. Well.... the new Errata is up and... I guess we better hope that combined Ogors book is coming soon. 🤨
  17. This army is now “done” at just over 2000 points. Actually it’s been done since earlier in the year given my refusal to add any sweet new Sacrosanct hotness. It’s latest outing was getting stomped by Hag-Nar temple nest, but I still love it just the same. Saved the Lord Aquilor until last 😎 Probably the only thing I will add at this point is a Celestant Prime.
  18. Rules pondering - a Lord of Chaos with the Mark of Slaanesh can grant run and charge to another unit as his command ability. So if one were to take Thrillseeker as the command trait would the +3 to run rolls on his existing run and charge ability be extended to the unit? 🧐
  19. A somewhat unpopular view - but, honestly it always seemed like an odd boxset when taken in the context of their overall strategy for the game. I can only see them continuing to take the elements of their WFB IP which had a notably distinct flavour beyond generic fantasy - shroomed-up night goblins, black orcs, murder-chick elves etc. and spinning those out into more fully realised unique factions, when it's not stuff that's just totally new (see Deepkin).
  20. Nah, any honourable knight worth his armor should revel in putting these vile servants of evil to the sword. For the lady!
  21. 2018 was the year of Stormcast for me. For 2019, i'm going to go the whole other way and run Legion of Azgorh. This is my idea for an initial 1000 points. It's primarily driven by the old school big-hat models I already own (command, ironsworn and the rocket), plus what I think is actually decent in their PDF - fireglaives and fireborn. I plan to get the fireglaives from Norba miniatures and use Spirit Hosts for the fireborn (which I've seen before and am shamelessly stealing, because it looks cool) I would appreciate thoughts on unit sizes in a 1000 point game. I have a feeling fireglaives might be better in two units of 10 or that I should commit to one unit of 6 fireborn. Eventually I would expand it out similar to Rob's list on Honest Wargamer, though I wouldn't go all in on Fireglaives (though I would add more), but also take the remainder of my big hats in a block of 30. First thing is to get all the old stuff rebased onto lava resin rounds 🙂
  22. To be fair, those models are super suuuuper old at this point. Like - they’re in the 1993 catalog for fecks sake, it’s bonkers they were still available on the store up until this week. I do love them though - I’m glad I own one - although that’s put my back burner plans of painting up a unit to rest at last.
  23. Guys guys guys. Guys. Rockgut troggoths just went “no longer available” on the web-store
  24. I think the issue here is that you are all simply too good as people and that GW is over-relying on the average gamers innate bastardry and desire to crush their allies and drink their salty tears 😂
