  1. Harkon I'd doubt despite how badly I'd want him, he just isn't as popular as the others and would require gw to design an entire pirate themed army again (which I'd buy in a heartbeat.) Abhorash would be awesome, could even make Vordhai relevant again as the blood dragons would sooner follow their sire and patriarch or a crazed traitor. I'd even be down for the return of Ushoran for some proper FeC/LoN soup. Ushoran, Mortarch of Madness or Mortarch of Feasts sounds cool. Then again so does Abhorash, Mortarch of the Blade or Mortarch of the Hunt.
  2. Blood stalkers should definitely get more attacks at the very least or maybe some poison special rule for mortal wound potential. I've got to disagree with you on morathi though, she's pricey for sure, but in a tournament setting with time constraints where you usually won't get past turn 3, she becomes an insane wall that can shut down the momentum of key units just by existing. Play her right and your opponents beat stick or big horde of whatever might as well not be on the table anymore once she gets into them on turn 2 or 3. I also feel heartrenders or lifetakers could use some adjusting to be more viable options but I'm not sure exactly what should be done with them.
  3. If only we where so lucky. But yeah I guess inheriting shadow would work. I guess that means abyss is also up for grabs if GW ever wants to do undead pirates again. Isabella as the mortarch of shadow could also be an opportunity to give soulblight their own standalone release instead of being a footnote in LoN.
  4. Vlad and Karl where broing it up a bit in the end times so it makes you wonder... What would Isabella's mortarch title be?
  5. If it's the return of Vlad (or Isabella for that matter) I'd buy in a heartbeat. I know Vlad is super dead, but that didn't stop nagash from resurrecting him the first time during the end times. As I recall Isabella should be alive though since she should have the von carstein ring. Also didn't one of the recent rumor engines look like a bone construct? What if Krell got turned into a Morghast hero? Now that's a model I'd pay to see!
  6. Rework temples since hag nar or whatever it's called is the only one I ever see played. Bloodwracks should make stalkers battleline, I've seen this argued a lot and I agree with it. Cap horde sizes for wych aelves and no cap discount. Remove general restrictions on command abilities, slaughter queens on foot are useless otherwise. Price hike hags, because a 60pt model should not do the same stuff as support models twice it's price. Rework the avatar, they're a wet noodle until turn 3 so their an easy kill unless your opponent spams hags to puke out prayers. Rework Morathi, you have to start hurting her from turn 1 to hope to kill her in a 2-3hr tournament game, had too many situations where she stays back for two turns and then rushes up and ties up my skeletons or slaanesh heroes and makes stops any momentum they had for the rest of the game. She is the only reason I can still justify the existence of instant kill rules like slayer of kings or dark temptations. Remove the 3 wounds a turn rule and drop her price. Alternate take is to bump up the wound cap to 5 so she can't be killed outright first turn but can be killed within 3 turns reasonably.
  7. Been in the hobby for 5 years and never once played or purchased from a GW store, always went to local hobby shops to buy and gaming lounges and game cafes to play. It started mostly because the nearest GW is 35 minutes away by car and the nearest hobby shop that sells and has tables is a quick walk down the street. But at this point I actually get better prices at some of my local stores and the community around these cafes and shops is way more relaxed and supportive than the 2nd hand experience I've had watching games and friends try to play at GW stores. Don't get me wrong the employees at the GW near me are great but the players that frequent the place are not. And Nagash/Sigmar even Slaanesh forbid I try to take my teenage sister there. Anyways as for the survey I was pro double turn, asked for resculpts on models that are old but still considered good to have like chosen or skryre acolytes, asked for some 40k stuff but this isn't the forum for that, and asked for the consolidation of stray factions like Ironweld, everchosen and 90% of aelves. i don't know if anyone would consider soulblight another like this considering their just an offhand extra page in LoN but a full release for them or properly mixing them into legion of blood would be nice to avoid having to make a vampire themed army as LoN but vampires or vampires without any of the niceties of LoN.
  8. Lord celestant settrus would like to have a word with you...
  9. If it isn't a varanguard on foot or plastic chosen then it better be phoenix guard terminators for emperors children.
  10. To be fair the carrion king was the closest thing to a nice vampire we had before nagash gave him the vordhai treatment. Literally every other vampire backstabbed him (if it hasn't been retconned that ushoran is the carrion king)
  11. Aside from Neffi and Arkhan? Nah, even his other mortarchs where forced into it or had ulterior motives. Vlad was only in it for the promise of Isabella being resurrected (nurgle beat him to it), manfred is waiting for a chance to betray him as well. Krell is basically the closest thing to loyal as it gets outside of nagash's inner circle.
  12. We getting the Kemler and Krell bromance again? All I want now is mortarch Kemler riding Krell in the form of an uber morghast.
  13. I'd like to see a slightly more positive take on the norscan view of the chaos gods, have khorne be viewed as a god of law and honour, slaanesh as a patron of the arts and fertility, nurgle for familial bonds and the cycle of life and tzeench for history, knowledge and change (really tzeentch is pretty neutral already since change and sorcery isn't inherently evil.) It'd be cool to see some chill darkoath folk just livin a peaceful life and have some overzealous sigmar worshippers be the bad guys trying to kill these folks who just wanna cooperate and survive.
  14. I'm throwing together a warhammer fantasy campaign where the party are dogs of war (because they can't all agree on a singular faction to play as) and one of the players is running a norscan warrior who worships the serpent (slaanesh) and views them as a patron of those who wish to master their trade, rather than the traditional depiction of slaanesh.
  15. I like the idea of seeing darkoath tribes working with free peoples, yet openly and casually talking trash about the others gods while doing so. In a sort of, "yeah your god abandoned us and our gods want to do all sorts of nasty stuff to everything, but hey we're both human and the rest of the world is out to kill us" I'd also like to see more vampires that are just kinda chill wit living amongst the living and aren't constantly scheming or bootlicking to the mortarchs, It'd be cool to read a story about a vampire that serves as a champion in a freeguild army or a mercenary warband. And hey, the philosophy of gork and mork is a highly debated topic amongst orruk scholars... the whole two of them.
  16. Well as much as i'm loving the new warscrolls, I gotta say the cost of the KoS kit is brutal especially since I want an extra one to make hellbane. $170 CAD is highway robbery, making it one of the most expensive models in the sigmar range along with posterboy models like archaon. Feels like a scam when compared to the other greater daemons kit prices. I'll be grabbing the book, fane and spells but man it'll probably be a while before the keeper graces my shelf. Will probably grab the epitome and another start collecting at least to pad out my current collection.
  17. every ending is a happy ending for us slaaneshi 😉
  18. I mean to be fair Slaanesh is one of the big 4 and is compared to the other 3 as such, the horned rat just kinda joined the boyband during the end times and got shoe horned in. Plus skaven have a large roster of units, slaanesh being a decades old army does not. Slaanesh arguably has the least units of all the old armies. Edit: I should add the caveat that for a long while all of chaos was basically one army, but once they splintered off slaanesh got shafted compared to the other 3 only getting one mortal unit and two mortal heroes, one being a named character (who was quickly demoted to nameless ****** like vlad or queek because like 90% of characters they got the axe in the end times) . As for daemons every god has a lesser daemon, 1-2 heralds, a greater daemon and 1-2 "monster" daemons like fiends and flamers. Of course this isn't including cavalry/chariots like seekers and bloodcrushers. So the disparity is purely in mortal representation, which is kinda a major longstanding aspect of the armies of chaos since their inception.
  19. Since it's on a base I'd say it's either an endless spell or some new game mechanic.
  20. The "issue" (more of a gripe really) is that every god army can take StD stuff but aside from slaanesh the others have a good few mortal choices unique to them while we don't.
  21. Tell that to the fyreslayers.... Jokes aside they are really old models so I'm not surprised, we'll have to see if the warscrolls stay around in the app and on the webstore. Still sends a bad message across regarding slaanesh mortals.
  22. before we had 3 mortal units, those being hellstriders and 2 flavours of lord. The two lords are getting axed. Meanwhile the 3 other chaos gods still have 8+ mortal options with khorne having in the ballpark of 20 counting all the hero variants. And I agree the resculpts are gorgeous and that daemonettes are a good sculpt.
  23. There are times when I feel this but I also like to ride the hype train regardless of whether it's my army because damn the new stuff is always so cool out of context
  24. From a rules perspective yeah they seem to have knocked it out of the park, but from a modelling perspective we got the complimentary spells and terrain that every army is getting, a resculpt of two really old models and two new models. Meanwhile they axed two of our 3 mortal units. The other 3 main chaos gods have had larger releases with mortals included and with the exception of maybe tzeench, have had big story hooks with their army release. While it's not dropping the ball when compared to smaller and newer armies like fyreslayers, slaanesh is one of the four main chaos gods and has existed as an "army" for years so there is a precedent to follow there.
  25. As a slaaneh player I am quite disappointed but I also don't want to drag on complaining when geedubs has clearly dropped the ball and isn't prepared to pick it up.
