  1. Thank you both for your recommendations! I really appreciate you taking the time to write these for me. SG
  2. I know this is a lot to ask, but I was wondering if someone could help me put together a decent 1000 point list. I already have the following models (not all painted yet): 1 x Auric Runesmiter 1 x Auric Runeson on Magmadroth 1 x Auric Runefather 1 x Auric Runemaster 1 x Battlesmith 1 x Doomseeker 1 x Grimwrath Berzerker 5 x Hearthguard Berzerkers 5 x Auric Hearthguard 20 x Vulkite Berzerkers Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks SG
  3. I spent probably an hour looking through old Sprues, and no luck on finding the frog. I can't find the Carnosaur head for Sunblood Shield as well, but I am considering using a piece of Tyranid carapace for that instead. I think it would work well. I may have a second Scar Veteran shield I can use for his shield. I just find it odd because I never get rid of any sprues that have bits on them. But, I can't find these Sprues. I cut all of the bits off the Warriors, Knights, and Skink sprues. But, I can't seem to find the Carnosaur/Troglodon sprue even though I bought two Start Collecting boxes. And, the Terradon sprues seem to have completely disappeared on me. Granted, since I bought any of these models, I have gotten married and moved in with my wife. Those sprues could have gotten lost in the move. Either way, I can make some changes to models to create a Sunblood, maybe a Scar Veteran on foot, an Astrolith Bearer, Scar Veteran on Cold one (up to six of them). But, no Slann. I'm not giving up on looking for these sprues yet (though I doubt I have them anymore), but it's a pretty big bummer either way. That said, I may just end up going with your idea for a 1000 point list instead. Again, thank you for that. SG
  4. So, I built both the Oldblood (on a separate base) and a Scar Veteran for the Carnosaur using two different Start Collecting boxes. So, I'm not sure if I can kitbash one of these, but I am very interested in how to do it. Thanks in advance SG
  5. First of all, thank you very, very much for the 1000 point list. That list will most likely be used. As to your question about points... no, it doesn't have to be at 2K. The reason why I want to play at 2K points is that most AoS tournaments are at 2K points. Now, please don't misunderstand, I'm not a competitive player. But, I have a feeling that it'd be fun to go to a few tournaments for the sake of seeing what the tournament scene is like when actually playing, meeting new people, maybe making some new friends. I met one of my very good friends to this day when I started playing Magic: The Gathering back in 2012. Here's the quick and dirty of it all. I buy way too many Warhammer models, and I stress myself out trying to get them painted, changing my mind on what army I want to work on, ignoring other hobbies, etc. I am floored by the amazing look and color schemes of the new Ossiarch Bonereapers and want them so badly. But, I have promised my wife that I would get an army fully painted at 2000 points and play a game or two to see if I actually enjoy AoS (my attention span is usually around 90 minutes). If I don't enjoy 2000, I'll definitely give 1000 points a try. But, if I honestly don't enjoy playing the game, I'm not going to put any money into a new army (with the possible exception of an Ossiarch Bonereapers model here or there for a painting competition). One more thing, I put this same original post on Reddit, and someone mentioned that there is a frog model that comes with the Terradon/Ripperdactyl model kit that people have used as a Slann. I keep most of the bits that I don't use on the sprue in a box. I know where that box is, and I plan to look for it tonight. I've seen some people use the seat for the Carnosaur as the throne for the Frog. It turns out really well. Since they are all GW bits/models, I have a feeling that it wouldn't be disallowed in either casual games or tournaments as a Slann Starmaster. Thanks! SG
  6. Is a Seraphon army worth running without a Slann (casual games only)? Son’s Birthday coming up soon, Christmas, car maintenance, etc.... doesn’t really leave room for buying new models right now. And, it seems that, while using two battalions, Seraphon is the only AoS army I have that can get close enough to 2000 points. Here’s what I have. Please keep in mind that all these models were bought during AoS1 not 2 (when summoning became such a huge part of the game) and I had intended on using them in WFB as well as T9A at the time: +++ AoS Seraphon (Age of Sigmar) [1,990pts] +++ + Leader + Engine of the Gods [240pts] + Behemoth + Troglodon [140pts] + Artillery + Razordons [50pts]: Razordons + Battleline + Saurus Warriors [180pts]: 2x 10 Saurus Warriors, Celestite Spear, Stardrake Icon, Wardrum + Other + Skink Handlers [40pts]: 3 Skink Handlers + Battalion + Battalion: Firelance Starhost [630pts] . Saurus Knights: 5 Saurus Knights, Celestite Lance, Stardrake Icon, Wardrum . Saurus Knights: 5 Saurus Knights, Celestite Lance, Stardrake Icon, Wardrum . Saurus Knights: 5 Saurus Knights, Celestite Lance . Saurus Scar-Veteran on Carnosaur: Celestite Greatblade Battalion: Shadowstrike Starhost [660pts] . Skink Starpriest . Skinks: 2x 10 Skinks, Boltspitters and Moonstone Clubs . Skinks: 2x 10 Skinks, Meteoric Javelins and Star-bucklers . Terradon Riders: 3 Terradon Riders, Starstrike Javelin + Command Points + Purchased Command Points [50pts]: 1 Command Point Thanks in advance! SG
  7. Thanks for the info! I think I knew some of that, but it had been pushed back to the back of my mind. SG
  8. Recently, after spending way too much time and energy on trying to put together too many armies, I've decided that I might just head back to my roots. When I started Warhammer, I was a 40K-only person. But, one day, I decided I might give AoS a shot. The very first models I bought were a Necromancer and a box of Grave Guard. I no longer have the Grave Guard (gave them to a friend when I moved on to other AoS projects). But, I now have a want to go back to my roots when it comes to AoS. Go back to playing Death. I've been out of really keeping up with the AoS game (mostly a hobbyist). But, with free summoning being a thing now, It seems that having a large number of summonable units is the best way to play any army (except for the armies that don't have any summoning abilities). I'd like to run the following as a Grand Host of Nagash, and I know I'm a unit short of 2000 points. But, I also don't have any additional units to be summoned. So, would it even be worth painting all of what I have if my 2000 point army won't have any summonable units? Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. Thanks SG
  9. You are correct, the game is very new and has a lot of potential to grow. The biggest issue with GW games outside of proper AoS and proper 40K is staying power. I think the real question should be, is GW going to add enough depth and stabilize the rules a little more before people get tired of it and abandon it? If GW releases some additional rules/depth out within the next month or so, it has a chance to stay around. If they wait to see how well it sells before they start to care about it, it'll be too late... people will already have moved on. Just my $0.02 based on my local meta SG
  10. Considering that AoS really doesn’t have a current functioning Skirmish game, if AoS gamers want a Skirmish game, it’ll take off. Yes, AoS Skirmish exists as well as Underworlds. But neither offer gameplay and/or decent balance like Warcry might (and hopefully will). Plus, you can use all your own models in Warcry if you want to play Order, Destruction, or Death. That’s a big positive for me. I’m really hoping that they allow other Chaos armies to be played in the near future. While Chaos is represented by the Warcry warbands, I can’t think of any reason (narrative or gameplay) why current chaos factions couldn’t be included as well. SG
  11. There are some reviewers out there that have the game from GW for review/hype purposes. All of the stores should have a demo copy set up and ready to play. But, at least here in the US, the game doesn't actually come out until 8/3 (this Saturday). I have a feeling we'll know a lot more about the game in about 10 to 20 days or so when many people have had time to paint up a Warband of their choice as well as the Terrain. And, after that, had plenty of time to play the game (Matched, Open, and Narrative play). While there will be some on this forum that will be able to answer your question now, I have a feeling that it'll be a while yet before you get several true gamers' thoughts on the game. SG EDIT: Necromunda is the same way at my local GW. There seems to literally be no interest in it at all. They have the core game at the store, but they have ZERO of the additional gangs. My FLGS down the road a bit has the core game and all of the additional gangs.
  12. From what I can tell, it's essentially an AoS version of Necromunda 2017 with the ability to use many more models from outside the Warbands that are made for use with the game. A lot of people seem to be comparing it to Kill Team, but I'm honestly not seeing the similarities unless it's in game length. SG
  13. Awesome!! Thanks! SG
  14. Very good topic! Would love to see a dedicated Warcry forum. SG
