  1. That dynamic and immersion belonged to a different era and game. The WM taste is definitely present in AoS, I don't find it that surprising as WM had aspects that are appealing for the modern gamers.
  2. As was pointed out, the colour of your base coat will have an effect on the later colours. Check the following tip, starts after 12:00 minute:
  3. Settler's Grain was mentioned in Soulbound, some humans choose self exile over strictness and supervision of their elven mentors, preferring to pay the danger of the frontier but gaining freedom. I'd recommend waiting for the Broken Realms: Teclis. Sentinels and Wardens currently make the bulk of any force, they're your safest choice.
  4. I'm still deciding what to use. The bases on my CoS elves turned nicely, I've used texture roller, zandri dust/skull white and some flock. It didn't turn out as neatly as I hoped, but it is what it is. I'm currently still researching what to do on Lumineth (yay for some free sick leave), probably going to use some pre-made bases as a guidance. In the worst case I'll use what I've learned during CoS project.
  5. Green fits very well with this model line, haven't seen a combination that I wouldn't like it. I'd prefer more lively bases, but it fits your theme.
  6. Hoeth is the elven god of knowledge and learning.
  7. I'm interested if the blademasters are going to be battle line, since they're of a Vanari type. Looking forward to the new releases, although I imagine it'll be a rather bitter taste when it comes to their prices.
  8. The cursed city is gorgeous. I'm rather happy with Lumineth, few designs I'd change but nothing serious.
  9. I hope they show the models tomorrow. Gods above how I wish I could play with the new Swordmaster, Loremaster and Marshall...
  10. The Age of Nagash is over, it's time for the Age of _______?
  11. What did you use for bronze? I'm really liking how everything came together (maybe I'd prefer brighter bases).
  12. I don't think anyone disputes his role as a teacher, I can only comment that he shouldn't be taken as Siddartha or Confucius. His actions definitely mirror an action of a guru (dispeller of darkness, darkness being ignorance), however considering AoS has a rather western setting, myself choose to not compare or mirror a fictional character to real historical figures. The outcome, imo, has too much friction to work smoothly, there are general practices and ideas that you could take and modify for the setting.
  13. You have Teclis and Tyrion side. The Twins might not be the most demanding, or rather despotic (as the Grand Toddler Nagash is), to their followers, however considering faith and wars of faith are a big aspect in AoS setting, I'd think they most certainly do. Not having a healthy pool of worshippers or preachers that go around and make their presence known makes the realm weaker, hence there is a pragmatic reason to have an organized clergy. It would be rather odd to have human priests of Tyrion and Teclis (Gotrek almost having a stroke when he sees one) but no elven ones. There are no definite answers, but there are clues that can be gathered and certain models can be developed and observed. Fall of Spires demolished the realm of Hysh, not only did the elves toppled mountains, dried the rives, they indirectly invited Chaos. If the spirits lacked any sort of memory and awareness it'd be an easy task to simply, well, subdue and abuse their power. The first disciples had to show their sincerity and determination to the spirits, they had to show they weren't the power and ego pleasing elves that caused the devastation of the land. That was the start, how this effected or what it means for the mortal - god relationship is something that I find unpredictable in the terms of how it's going to end.
  14. I read "master" as a teacher or mentor, rather than strictly someone that has dominance over you. Teclis occupies a unique position in the mortal - god relationship, he's the creator, teacher and has other titles that you can add to him, it's impossible for Lumineth to deny him. He has bonded with Calennar and their relations isn't such as master-slave, a great symbol and example to others.
  15. I don't have enough information on how the Temple - Nation politics are played out, along with other aspects of governance. As it is, I think that there are larger sects dedicated to a particular element, rather than being one unifying one. There are reasons for that, from elemental mages that all developed their own way on how to approach the spirits and the spirits themselves leaving different imprint on them. With this model it's possible to see a parallel with the Crafworld temples of Khaine, there are multiple temples of the same Aspect of Khaine, yet all slightly different, with their own traditions but unified in their dedication to the art and Craftworld. I wasn't trying to emulate the space elves, but with how my model turned out, the simulation seems stable enough for the moment. It's possible to create more nations like Ymetrica, however I'm not a fan of on it as a rule of a thumb, as the Temples are only part of the nation culture rather than being the culture.
  16. It's the other way around, the nation is more closely tied to a particular element.
  17. Flavour of the nation isn't strictly tied to the Temples. Ymmetrica is currently more of an exception.
  18. Hard to say, warhammer elves were popular, and to many elves of either flavour are a personal favourite, I'd imagine we're going to see a gradual increase of their popularity as time goes on and controversies settle or are forgotten, having a well-supported and new model range is also a good motivator. This is an area that I feel it needs to be addressed, personally, I'd like to see more short stories that highlight the culture and relationship between the elves, spirits and events that happened in the mortal realm(s).
  19. Definitely, as long you fill the battle line requirements.
  20. Various issues are bogging me down, there's bad all around, and it's only the tip of an iceberg of things yet to come. I have 5 stone guard with picks that need some minor layers of undercoat. The problem of how to paint them (technique and colour pallet) is proving to be quite frustrating, especially since weekends (Sundays) are the only time when I can get something done. The bases are another thing as I'll need to make some experiments and see how much I'll like it. I'll likely build my elven force around the stone guard, I have 10 more in the mail, I'll need 5 more for a total of 20, unless the blade masters can be taken as battle line as well. I've picked up the Sentinels and Cathallar as well, mostly because the hobby inventory is getting harder to get. I am looking forward to the expanding line of the new lumineth heroes, units and plot progression. Hopefully Teclis will accomplish what he set out to do, and it's not going to be a combination of various bad timings that will make it an overall an anticlimactic act. The other project is looking for high elves models that I could use for Frost grave or Kings of War. Seems "wood" and "dark" variants are dominant but there's only a few "high" elves on the market.
  21. I am waiting for more substantial events to happen or be put in motion. Teclis is visiting Shysh, however what he attempts to do is rather puzzling, what would confronting Nagash in his own realm accomplish.
  22. Syar, so you can munch on more Colas than other nations.
  23. The choice is yours alone to make. You are missing the old (best) elves, if the work you'd do would add a meaning, go for it.
