    AoS 2 - Skaventide Discussion

    Thanks for the advice. I think I am suffering from an embarrassment of riches and trying to cram too much cool stuff into a list which will end up leaving me with lots of minimum size units (which I already know is not great for Skaven). I will rethink!

    AoS 2 - Skaventide Discussion

    Question from a new Skaven player. What is the best way to build clan rats? Spears for units of 40 but blades for units of 20?

    Examining The Stormcast in Light of New and Pending Releases

    Lots of reasonable points except that there are two things you arnt taking into account. 1. As the posterboys for AOS they are the starting faction for the vast majority of new players. As a beginners faction their rules will stay fairly simple and stormcast are always going to be a point and click army. 2. There are probably more people who have a SC army or at least part of a box set of them than all the other armies put together. Sales wise GW want people to always be grabbing this years SC and either going back to the army they put on the shelf or starting a new one. They know the SC model range is huge but to keep sales they have to jack the power level of new units or nerf the old ones (they created the tiger, now they have to ride it). I do however agree that the battalions are terrible. I dont use any and the stormhosts are colourful but just arnt as good as staunch defender. The stardrake is a strange one. A dragon that isnt particularly scary in close combat compared to other monsters? That is flat out odd. I predict in the next GHB evocators will only get 1 dice to roll for their mw ability and sequitors will go to 140pts. Dracothian guard are yesterdays men and wont be battleline (they want us to buy dracolines).

    The New Skaven Battletome, Terrain, Model & eSpells!

    Are we all discounting the possibility of a second wave/week or releases? Who is to say what is announced isnt just week 1 and more will be shown at LVO at the weekend?
  9. We are all AOS players so want it to represent to some extent. Unless there was a truly terrible piece of 40k ****** we couldn't ignore.
  10. So many great ideas! I love the old metal Nagash that looks like a kid made it from playdo. I'm leaning towards recommending the guy below to my group if i can find a single model.
  11. Hi Some friends and I are starting a little league table for our AOS games. We want a truly awful trophy for the person at the top of the leaderboard to hold that keeps their ego in check. We are looking for a single model that has stats or a sculpt so bad that it is laughable that it exists at all. Said waste of plastic/resin/metal will be painted up and mounted on a plinth for evermore. Any suggestions welcome. For reference, in MTG we used a foil Jar of eyeballs. Thanks in advance N

    I missed that. What did Kelly say?

    There are at least 3 more chambers to release going by the battletome and the persistent theory of rogue (gone mad ones)

    Interestingly enough these isnt currently a real cavalry army in the setting. Might be a nice space for a new race to fill at some point.

    The Rumour Thread

    I think its likely that many of the older factions without a battletome will stay that way for a number of reasons. 1. Tightening up intellectual property (anyone can sell knights, only GW can sell stormcast, orks and elves changed to Orruks and aelves). 2. It makes no business sense to put huge amounts of work into a battletome and maybe 1 or 2 new models so that guy with 3,500pts of brettonians can play them again when you are in the business of selling models. Far better to launch a new faction or update something already supported (i.e. dark elves must largely disappear when malerion's shadow aelves arrive. Ironjawz and KO who need life support) What I can see happening is certain key factions like skaven, making a big comeback as they have wide appeal, great lore, a presence in the story thread of AOS and a ton of models that are either hard to collect or resin/metal. They, like grots have the potential to sell huge amounts of new and updated models. At some point there is also prob going to be an anti nagash death faction and that could mark tomb kings return, perhaps half flesh, half bones. We also have to remember that 2018 was battletome rapid fire for 40k and they could easily be planning the same for supported AOS factions this year.
