    AoS 2 - Free Cities (Firestorm) Discussion

    AoS2 - FREE CITY DISCUSSION If you're asking what the hell a Free City and is and/or if GW managed to sneak another battletome out without you noticing, worry not, you've come to the right place. The Free Cities are the settlements founded in the Mortal Realms by the races living in Azyr after the Stormcast did the really difficult job of beating Chaos back into it's rightful place as a second tier antagonist behind Death. If you like old WFB good guy factions you've come to the right place! The Free Cities do not have a battletome per say, but the seven best known ones to have their own boutique sets of mini allegiance abilities, usable in any AoS game included in Season of War: Firestorm, a map-based campaign supplement that's probably one of the best things released so far for AoS - check it out if you haven't already (Destruction , Death and Chaos also got one set of mini allegiance abilities each but they've got their own sub forums). These "City Armies" as they're termed by the Firestorm book all have an extra battle trait that you get on top off the existing grand alliance allegiance abilities for Order are unlocked by taking an army made up of only the required factions for that paticular Free City (for example an army from the Phoenicium could only contain Stormcast, Free People, Dispossessed and Phoenix Temple units), and no named (special) characters (I will be abandoning this thread for good when a Gotrek model is released alongside Realmslayer at the end of the year 😉). I created this thread as a response to the discussion of Free City allegiances currently spilling out of the Dispossessed thread, and thought it would be cool if we had a community hub to share list ideas, tactics, awesomely converted and painted armies, and background for such a cool set of mini-factions. Without further ado here's a list of resources for current and aspiring Free City players: USEFUL STUFF: Season of War: Firestorm errata - IMPORTANT, updates the way Free City allegiances work and adds to the factions available to Tempest's Eye and Greywater Fastness. Community article confirming matched play "legality" - For use in the event an opponent, gaming group or tournament organiser claims the army allegiance rules in Firestorm are only for use in campaign games, and not "normal" games of Age of Sigmar. The Hammerhal Herald - Fun, regularly updated Warhammer Community offshoot site exploring daily life in one of Sigmar's Free Cities. Free City generator - A fun extra put together by the Warhammer Community team allowing you to randomly generate background for you own Free City, right down to name, size, inhabitants and what it's best known for. Previous Anvilgard thread - The old let's chat thread for the Free City with easily the most unusual battle trait. Contains a lot of useful advice and theoryhammering. Overview of the Free Cities - Quick breakdown of each Free City, who lives there and how to get the most out of their battle trait (literally the post below this one).

    Oh neat a Pink Horror (I'm guessing it's pink, blasted black and white), reckon it'll split into blues and brimstones in game?

    AoS 2 - Free Cities (Firestorm) Discussion

    Hi @Frowny The Collegiate Arcane stuff is generally pretty usable (if a little costly in the Hurricanum's case). If you're looking at taking both the Hurricanum and Lumiark, why not add a Battlemage on Griffon and take the War Council battalion? The bonuses to cast are now great for getting crucial endless spells off, and the spell range bonuses mean you can guarantee getting offensive spells off in the first turn of the game, and have a lot of fun with realm spells.] If you're worried about being a static/a gunline, then don't take handgunners. Take mobile reavers or cheap Freeguild Guard as battleline, you'll have a lot more fun while being able to take objectives, and your opponents will hate you a lot less. You can use a Steam Tank alongside Collegiate stuff in both Greywater Fastness and (ubiquitous) Hammerhal armies. If you're looking for a similar cheap screeny unit to Skinks that isn't Skinks... Aetherwings? 50 points for 3, the're much more objective grabbers/redirectors than low key tarpits, but can be equally annoying in the hands of a competent player.

    😳 I don't think I know anyone who doesn't have at least a few dozen spare bases in common sizes leftover from conversions and abandoned projects. Even if you're just starting out and really don't have the eight bases spare, I'm sure someone you know will, and even if you really can't get ahold of any for free you'll still make a net profit ebaying your unwanted scenic bases to fund buying plain ones. 🤷‍♂️

    Let`s chat: Anvilguard

    Good call on trapping the enemy with endless spells @JackStreicher. Anvilgard continues to impress! If I had to choose between Palisade and Shackles for trapping enemy units I'd probably pick both. If anyone wants to write an Anvilgard guide for the Free Cities in AoS2 thread I'd be super grateful as I don't play them and they're too different from anything else in AoS to write about in detail if you don't know the ins and out of Implacable March.

    I just hope Ironweld Arsenal are in there as they are a perfect match lorewise for such a game.

    You can, but Ignax's Scales would still only apply to mortal wounds and not garden variety wounds.

    That'd be a lot of magnets. You could probably build and paint two of them for the effort.

    Updated Beasts of Chaos warscrolls are up on the New Zealand site. Check out the Wildfire Tarus, I predict seeing allied into a loooooot of Chaos armies (remember, if you can't ally in Brayheards you can always ally a Tzaangor Shaman to cast it).

    The Ultimate guide to High Aelves in AoS2

    Yes, you can use Hallowheart allegiance (as long as you don't ally in a special character like Chris ). Phoenix Temple allegiance doesn't have a set of allegiance abilities and therefore gets to use the default Order allegiance abilities, the current Season of War: Firestorm errata states that an army using the Order allegiance abilities (something you can no longer choose to do in place of an army's own allegiance abilities if they have access to them in AoS 2.0) can take a Firestorm City or Warlord allegiance as well, as long as they meet the qualifiers. As far as Aqshy artefacts go, Thermalrider Cloak for an extra zippy phoenix guaranteed to get a charge in on the first turn? (Aqshy artefats aren't very good...)

    The Ultimate guide to High Aelves in AoS2

    Cool thread! I've used Reavers and Waywatcher Lords converted from High Elf parts in my Order armies to great success. If you're going Order Draconis, Phoenix Temple or mixed "High Elf" and have access to a copy of Season of War: Firestorm it's well worth checking out the Free City bonus allegiance abilities, as any High Elf army without allied special characters will qualify for at least Hammerhal allegiance, and they're well... free, giving you no reason not to use them. I've written a quick breakdown of the different Free City allegiances, go check it out(Hallowheart is paticuarly good for High Elves):

    Gotrek in AoS

    Amazon listing slightly updated with a finished looking cover: The audiobook's still listed as being out on the 6th of November, meaning that if Gotrek gets a mini an accompanying rules like Eisenhorn did there's still a chance it goes on preorder the week before and I'm able to use (albeit an old model of) Gotrek at Warhammer Achievements!

    Suspicious goats indeed! I'm currently on holiday in France, and yesterday evening my Labrador and I were confronted by and then chased for roughly half a mile by this hideous thing (maybe the size of a large cat), displaying at least 2/5 of the signs of seditious behaviour mentioned above and violently bleeting at us in (what I can only assume to have been) the dark tongue: Beastmen are definitely coming! 😟🐐

    AoS 2 - Ironweld Arsenal Discussion

    Personally I'd drop those points for a Jade Battlemager or Knight Incantor to handle spell duty and a Runelord to buff the Longbeards up to -2 rend, but if you can pull off three Aspects and the Prime you can probably make a Hurricanum work in your sleep.

    AoS 2 - Ironweld Arsenal Discussion

    Welcome one and all to the grand opening of AoS2 - IRONWELD ARSENAL DISCUSSION (or Let's Chat: Ironweld Arsenal 2.0 if you'd rather) As we move into the second edition of Age of Sigmar this thread will exist as the one-stop destination to post and read Ironweld tactics, army lists, painted and converted models, background and anything else you can think to talk about. I will be regularly updating this OP when second edition AoS is out linking to new versions of my unit breakdowns and other tactics posts for the new version of the game (in depth tactics articles to finally appear when I've played a few games of the new edition and got a handle on it!), as well as anything else interesting posted by other members of the community. You say you're new to the game, collect Stormcast, have never heard of the "Ironheld Admirals" and would like to know who they are? The Ironweld Arsenal is composed of a cherry-picked list of all coolest units from the Dwarfs and Empire, the two coolest armies from Warhammer Fantasy Battle (the little heard of rectangle-focused game that preceded Age of Sigmar). Combining da Vinci style feats of artisan engineering with an Acme-level passion for blowing things to smithereens, the Ironweld Arsenal are the armoured fist, heavy support and air force of the Free Cities. Regrettably having no batteline units of their own, the Ironweld lend their services out to any Order army with good taste, with Ironweld war machines filling the much needed battlefield niches that the other factions lack the cannonballs to fill. IRONWELD RESOUCES: (to be added to I swear) Eight Lamentations: Spear of Shadows - Excellent Ironweld-centred AoS Black Library novel by @JReynolds, giving us our closest look into the Ironweld Arsenal so far! The old Ironweld Arsenal thread - I'm not holding myself responsible if the tactics in there get you trashed in the new edition, but hey, you might get something interesting out of it. My Ironweld Arsenal wishlist 26/6/18 - Fair warning, starts out reasonable, gets weird. Cogfort weird. Big thanks to @Chris Tomlin for letting me make this thread, I look forward to keeping it updated and continuing to push the Ironweld Arsenal with the rest of the community. Battleline Organ Guns for GHB 2019!

    AoS 2 - Ironweld Arsenal Discussion

    Cool list @Thankee - I've been loving you Aspect heavy Deepkin thread. I'd drop the Hurricanum - at 3+ with rerolls the majority of your cannonballs are going to be hitting anyway, and 380 points are much better sunk into mobile objective grabbers that your list currently sorely lacks. Get some Gyrocopters in there!
  22. Puke 🤮🤮🤮 Still holding out hope this is an obvious solicitation red herring as the first place Gotrek would look for him and not the case.
