  1. You're right about maybe being flexible with our rules too (even our house rules). I think certainly we need something in the short term just for our initial games, but beyond that I'm going to continue to try and learn as best I can so I can start playing other people. Just so much to remember! I've got a few extra bits to have a Soulblight or Legion of Death/Blood army as a backup too. That's for later on though.
  2. Thanks. The colour scheme isn't as schizophrenic as it might appear, I tried to keep white as a theme throughout, but then gave each group that makes up a battalion a separate colour, so that I can easily see who hangs out together (so to speak). I do think my Coven Throne ended up looking like the Disney version though!
  3. Some of my recently painted models. Not all of these were finished when i took the photos.
  4. Just as an update, I beat my Husband on the second attempt! The first match we had, I didn't have any heroes made up, no wizards, so few opportunities for anything particularly exciting. If I remember correctly the army consisted of 1 x Dreadblade Harrow 10 x Bladegheist Revenants 4 x Mymourn Banshees 4 x Glaivewraith Stalkers 5 x Hexwraiths. I attempted to start with a couple of units in the grave to ambush later, but just didn't have anything exciting enough to cause any difficulty. It was pretty one-sided. Second attempt, I decided to get a lot more of my units ready, and came back with 1 x Coven Throne 1 x Lady Olynder 1 x Guardian of Souls 10 x Grimghast Reapers 5 x Hexwraiths. Now I'm aware that there are rules which wouldn't allow this lineup elsewhere (I believe allies have to be max 200 points in a 1000 point army so I shouldn't be able to field the Coven Throne in a Nighthaunt army) but this is mostly just for practice and my Husband doesn't mind as he's learning too. He did mind in the end though, as my Coven Throne was probably what tipped it quite quickly and some bad tactics on his part let him lose his only hero early on. To be fair, we're both not sure of the rules yet, as he's a long-time 40k player he sometimes assumes things that aren't right when we look it up. We also decided on a new 'house' rule where both of us have to field a the same number of hero, battleline etc, so that we're evenly matched. It'll make for slightly longer and more even battles while we learn the ropes. Me having 3 heroes and the ability to resurrect my units in some places just wiped him out straight away. His army is Tzeench, he has a Herald of Tzeentch chariot, some pink/blue/brimstone horrors, tzaangors, Screamers and Kairic Acolytes. He's recently also bought a ton of extra models that haven't been made up & painted yet, so he'll have some different options in the near future for when we go again.
  5. I've been painting non-stop for the past month so might as well make a pledge to continue it through September. Hope to get through the following: Finish Lady Olynder Finish the 20 Chainrasps I started last week (8 still to paint, all of the bases to finish) Do something pretty with the bases of 3 Spirit Hosts & 10 Bladegheist Revenants (Do I have a problem with finishing bases I wonder??? I was waiting for supplies, honest!! ) Plus 10 Dreadscythe Harridans 10 Grimghast Reapers Start Mannfred, Mortarch of Night (sorry!) It sounds like quite a lot now that i've written it down!
  6. It's not the best pic & early in the painting process but I think you get the general idea. I chickened out and stuck the heads on later as not all sculpts worked without them. Maybe one day! (You can't tell from the pic but the inside is blue, looks black on the photo)
  7. I bought this a couple of weeks ago. Nactigal is correct, the only thing I'd add is that mine only came with assembly instructions for the engine and coven throne, so you'd have to download the info for the third version. Possibly why some people think it's not included. All the parts are definitely included though. (I made the Coven Throne with mine)
  8. Coincidentally, I was painting my Bladegheist Revenants tonight & had left the heads to paint & stick in last. The colour scheme is light on the outside of the cloaks/cowls but dark inside, and now I think it looks really cool without the heads. The darkness creates a void & looks really spooky. No idea now if I should leave them out or go with my original plan. There's always the worry that it won't look intentional & I just forgot about them.
  9. Really finding this guide helpful. As a completely new player it's overwhelming having to learn so much at once, so finding something broken down so simply is a godsend! Thank you so much, I should be painted ready for my first battle very soon and will be putting it all into practice!
  10. Thank you all so much for your advice, it's a lot to think about but thankfully all makes sense. (Using terms like 'significantly killier' is definitely speaking my language!) Going to have a think about the best way forward, might just see what is the cheapest/most logical to add at the moment to get started & bulk it out a bit, and then take a bit more of a methodical approach long term. I don't mind ditching the coven throne, quite happy to have it just on a shelf as I love the model, or perhaps something for another time. I don't know if building one of the other two variants might have been better, too late now anyway. The most annoying thing is perhaps the look of the Hexwraiths. They really do look average next to the dynamic newer models (noticed a few people doing their own mods on them so clearly not just me). Need to try them in battle and see if their skills on the field make up for it! I have the battletome on order so some reading will hopefully help too!
  11. Hi all, I'm a completely new player who has been recruited to the cause by my Husband. I used to have a couple of models (probably nearly 20 years ago) but just enjoyed painting them and never played. I remember having Vlad and Isabella, plus other various skeletons & undead. Since I commented on how nice the new Nighthaunt sculpts are my Husband suggested building my own army and he'd teach me to play. He plays 40k but has a lot of Chaos/Demons so can build an AoS army pretty quickly. Given that my first love is painting I initially just bought the figures I liked the look of and wanted to paint, but now I don't know if I've really gone down the right path and should have been a bit more restricted/thoughtful in what I bought. (I also bought mainly box sets to save some money) This is why I'd like some advice, my Husband has given suggestions but he's not a death expert, and I'd quite like to have a few tricks and a bit of knowledge up my sleeve for when we finally start battling. Below is my current list and any suggestions as to what to add/get rid of would be appreciated. If they don't quite work together I may even split them and eventually and have formations, so nothing is a waste if I don't use it. 1 x Coven Throne 3 x Spirit Hosts 5 x Hexwraiths 4 x Glaivewraith Stalkers 4 x Myrmourn Banshees 1 x Lady Olynder 1 x Nighthaunt Lord Executioner Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
