  1. If I give you a gold star, will you feel like you won a debate?
  2. It's a pretty bad way to treat a discussion like an argument to be won, and then claim victory over someone because you aren't convinced.
  3. I think I'd make the argument that it isn't about immersion, but it's about storytelling. Sure, it can make sense for a giant gold forge to be sitting on a battlefield. But when we're dealing with skirmish level conflicts, or at least the spearpoint of a larger battle, it seems weird for something so big and solid to be brought and set up by an army. It's the same critique with the Khorne stage/shrine/priest thing. If the forge looked like it could be moved easily, I think the story of how it got is way easier to make.
  4. Okay so, all these new models make me want to fall to Chaos and make a Slaaneshi warband. What the best deal to get started with? I've heard you could make more chariots than advertised with the Start Collecting boxset, but like, are chariots any good? All I really know right now is I want to run a few big units of Daemonettes and that new Keeper of Secrets.
  5. I think the most competitive Skaven lists are focused around Plague Monks; huge blocks of them seem to be the way to go. I'm not familiar with Thanquol, so I can't really say, but forty Plague Monks with a ton of attacks each seem like a real threat. Yeah, almost every tournament I've read about uses the matched play scenarios, which all focus on objectives (I think units killed count as tiebreakers in some). It can be a little difficult for Stormcast to compete against really large horde based armies, but sometimes you just gotta get lucky with pairings.
  6. Oh wow, that Keeper of Secrets is so cool
  7. Disclosure; I'm not tournament player. I think you got a good idea of the strengths of both lists. My guess, based on what you think you'll see? The Stardrake list feels better, imo. DoK and Skaven have tons of really big, really strong units, and I'm not sure the Anvilstrike list can really deal with them. Fighting Nagash and the like, Anvilstrike sounds much better? But huge killy hordes just sound so hard to deal with imo. Plus like, the Stardrake really does look cool.
  8. I mean I doubt the battleline option (maybe with a character??) but I'd love that to happen because I have too many.
  9. You figure at least Castigators get a boxset and warscroll, right? They're the only unit that just has a push fit box, and still no options for the Prime in the unit. That and a new piece of terrain is probably a Forbidden Power release.
  10. I feel like GW doesn't need rules to drive sales, at least these days. I'm not sure either of the new 40k armies in the Shadowspear box are going to light the tournament world on fire, but there sure seems a lot of hype about the designs and character of the models. I've seen people want to play Wood Elves in 7th Edition, so I really think model preference and design drive sales the most.
  11. It sounds like more of a Necromunda and less of a Kill Team? That's still pretty cool. I was hoping for a good version of Skrimish, but I've forever been interested in collecting a small, weird Chaos warband.
  12. Has anyone given the Lord-Arcanum on Tauralon a shot? I'm thinking about getting a nice big center piece model, and while the Star Drake is gorgeous, I think it's a little beyond what I can paint right now. I like how the Tauralon looks, but is it worth getting over the LA on Gryph-Charger?
  13. Hey folks! I was wondering if I could get some feedback on a 1000pt list? I'm just starting to collect some Stormcast, I wanted to start with some neat models that would be pretty good on the table, if I ever got a chance to play. So it's a mix of a few units to act as an anvil, and the ballistas coming down on a weak flank to inflict some damage. Two ballistas seem like a better deal than other shooting options at 1000pts?
