  1. For novels, Gloomspite & Dark Harvest & Silver Shard were my favorites. There have been many excellent short stories.
  2. Kragnos not being BoC was a real kick in the teeth. Just look at him! I also play Destruction factions and I would never take him because he doesn't even come close to the aesthetic. And BoC desperately need help (new models, better rules) and Kragnos would've been a nice quick-fix solution.
  3. Started playing Frostgrave. Am using BoC for my warband!
  4. My interest in AoS (as a game) is hanging by a thread. The abrupt decision to drop a new edition in the middle of a pandemic, when many recently released 2.0 battletomes had barely gotten any play, the Cursed City & split Lumineth release debacles, etc. really killed my interest in 3.0– add on the push to WH+, a product I have zero interest in yet which they want to basically force us to use. Yeah, it won’t be long until everything but the models & paint will be digitally locked up behind a paywall. No thank you! I have yet to play a game of 3.0 and I will certainly try it out eventually but OathMark & Frostgrave & One Page Rules are all looking mighty appealing for being model agnostic.
  5. I’m am not in this hobby to look at screens. I am in it for an analog experience. As soon as WH+ was announced, I figured that the transition of the hobby would start so that by AoS4, all warscrolls and rules will be locked behind a paywall. I might bow out at that point.
  6. As a former technical writer & editor, I personally find GW’s approach to rules publication infuriating, especially considering the luxury prices we are paying for our hobby. The quality control should simply be better. Full stop. But GW aren’t going to change, they are basically telling their customers to FAQ off because they know that the majority of us won’t walk away from the hobby due to sunk costs and ubiquity. I know because I’m one of them. The whole roll-out of 3.0 has left a bad taste in my mouth. I think it was poorly done (not as poorly done as 1.0) and too soon. An every three year edition cycle is ridiculous. And then to get the Core Book and see it needs 7 pages of errata… that’s pathetically slip-shod. It’s disappointing. I don’t know what the solution is because this is a very profitable company with a huge fanbase that doesn’t need to publish this way. They need better editing and play testing controls. Things have become more noticeably slipshod with all their games just in the past two years.
  7. You are not alone. Went to my first AoS night at a new club and everyone was grousing about all the additional “bookkeeping” and how slow it makes the game. I’m sure that’ll change with time. It took me almost a year to get proficient with 2.0 and I’m 43
  8. As a colorblind person, i am well versed in giving constructive feedback and I agree that font is way too small.
  9. That’s what I’m doing! I think it’s fine both units line up with the proper Warscrolls just fine.
  10. Pandemic product fatigue: 4 Broken Realms books, Cursed City, SBGL, & lots of Underworlds warbands all came quickly on the heels of one-another, burning out interest and wallets. Plus, 2.0 might have been “finished” for GW in terms of product but it is was nowhere close to finished in terms of gameplay due to shutdowns. I bought the 2.0 Seraphon tome and never even got a chance to play it once. Now I know it will soon be super-ceded so I’m kinda annoyed. I think 2.0 had another year of life in it.
  11. Finally crafted a list I’m happy with for an upcoming tournament. (Note: error on Manfred’s spell, it’s actually Fading Vigor) DoubleDragon.pdf
