  1. Too bad the only things I actually care for from the box I could get cheaper when buying separately.
  2. I hope you realise yourself how ridiculous it is to talk about monetary tax in this hobby.
  3. Keep painting. That way I can enjoy my colour scheme by proxy until I get to mine.
  4. My 7e 2000 points Tomb Kings had only 55 models, just like my 2000 points OBR list now.
  5. Perhaps, but it also shows, in case anyone was doubting it, that just giving it points doesn't automatically make things better. Personally I rather have people use free faction terrain that's a bit too strong than not using any faction terrain at all. At least it can't be spammed like other too strong units.
  6. Please no. I love that the faction terrain is free in AoS. You never see any in 40k because it's just not worth it compared to buying more units. GW just needs to balance them properly.
  7. I honestly would miss the WHFB setting much less if GW had ported every army to AoS. Tomb Kings and Bretons being the obvious ones but also classic elves and dwarfs instead of JUST modern twists on them (and now Cities of Sigmar). The loss of rank&file would still suck since I really enjoyed that kind of gameplay, but the AoS rules have their own set of advantages so I could live with that.
  8. Ironically Petrifex Elite plays a lot like I remember Warriors of Chaos back in 7e WHFB with their super tough infantry unlike anything before (except for some Dwarf units and later Saurus Warriors), strong artillery (okay Warriors of Chaos mainly got it via magic) and tough cavalry. Just that they add healing to it and don't have super killy characters. Too bad AoS doesn't really have counterplay options like catching a super tough infantry block in the flank and such (catching infantry in the flank gave bonuses to the melee result, denied enemy bonuses from ranks to the melee result and denied the bonus point of armour for wielding handweapon+shield, plus the enemy had less models to attack back with).
  9. Oh ****** that's my colour scheme except for the bones which will be a bit more white-ish. Damn you!
  10. Except that at this point you aren't fighting a 130p unit with your 400p unit anymore. You are fighting a 130p unit that gets supported by other units that combined cost a lot more than 400p.
  11. That hasn't been the case for a long time now. GW plastic is just as detailed as FW resin, some of the FW products are plastic as well and finally the main reason for resin was that it doesn't require to sell as many models to pay for the moulds as it would be the case with plastic miniatures.
  12. If I recall correctly FW said they can easily see themselves doing HH books for 10 more years, so I doubt Old World will have anything to do with HH ending or something like that.
  13. Bone and Black are both rather neutral (bone a bit less but it still goes with most everything). If you go with a green tinge/highlights you could go for green glow as well I guess.
  14. That's not how this works. It just means 5 or 6.
  15. Better ask Chessex whether they are still doing something like that first. I've heard they don't do GW symbols on dice anymore.
  16. Probably the pages of pages of special rules. Same thing that people hated about 40k 7e core rules so now those are neat and tidy on the Datasheets where you only have them infront of you when you actually need them and if you need them you don't have to bring out the rulebook and search through it. Also, at least during WHFB 7e, the BRB was really weirdly sorted. Without the index you could barely find anything if you didn't memorize it (which I did so some people usually came to me or our local warhammer guru to ask about rules).
  17. Less hidden in plain sight and more that they realised there's a demand so they are going to supply. It's easy money for them but still needs to get properly designed and produced. People have 3D printers these days, you know. It's perfectly viable for someone to produce terrain of that quality on their own.
  18. 8th definitely made things a lot worse and it's when my group basically quit warhammer.
  19. They have new history and new storylines though. AoS is not bad, nor is WHFB objectively better. Both have their appeal.
  20. Yeah but if you are bitter and try to be AoS exclusive you'll exclude many potential players which is even worse for your goal. Also keep in mind that it's probably still only the initial hype. In a few months many of those people might already lose interest in it again. Just like when Kill Team and such got released many local communities only played those for a few weeks before returning to the system they came from. The alternative is of course that your local community is more interested in whfb than AoS, in that case you simply lost the fight before it even started and you are doomed to be the smaller part of the community. That outcome is pretty unlikely at this point in time though.
  21. I do expect it. I didn't say anything about the scale or the pace they are going to get released though. That's completely on you if you interpreted it that way.
  22. So basically what I said. Release new models. Not sure what your point is.
  23. If they think it may bomb they wouldn't do it at all obviously.
