  1. I discovered Warhammer through Age of Sigmar, when it launched, and loved everything about the game. I have 6 full 2000 point armies and most of the books. It baffled me that some people didn't like the game and most of the stuff they criticized was just plain wrong (like Stormcast being empty suites of armor, when in the first book that came out they have 2 Stormcast leaders talking to each other with their helmets off). But the people at my local gaming store where on board with the new game and the new system so there was no vitriol from toxic Warhammer Fantasy "fans" (like the people burning their armies online). 2 of the guys at my store had been on MiniWarGaming YouTube battle reports in the past. In them found a small community that was inviting and excited to learn the new system. There were only 8 guys when I joined and one of them owned the store, but we grew to around 12 by the time I moved to Florida, 2 years later. More people were interested once the Generals Handbook came out and honestly the game has just gotten better and better. I especially love the fact that even though GW has added a bunch of new rules and stuff it's all pretty much choose what you want to use to play. I still demo the game with the original 4 page rules. Anyway GW is working on a new game called Warhammer: The Old World, it might be a return to the style of Warhammer Fantasy or it might be something new...
  2. At minimum you just pick a hero with less than 10 wounds, they recommend playing with 3 hero's if playing solo or 4 heroes if playing co-op (2 each). It's all on the first page of the download...
  3. You know, the free Nighthaunt mini campaign. I picked out an Exalted Deathbringer, Ogroid Myrmidon and Ogroid Thaumaturge as my warband. Dusted off my Nighthaunt army and picked out the required mini's. Got my Battletomes ready and set up everything to play. I played through 14 rounds without getting hit, around half of my exploration rolls were for treasure. I had managed to collect almost all the loot items and 2 artifacts of power for each member of my party. I decided to stop cause the game wasn't challenging and I had played for about an hour and a half... It was a lot of fun for the first 4 or 5 rounds, when everything was uncertain, but I was just too overpowered and getting stronger after every battle. I'll probably give it another shot with a weaker set of heroes. But honestly, I'd rather play Rangers of Shadow Deep. Any body else gave the game a go?
  4. I was on vacations and saw a GW store, walked in and saw that Age of Sigmar was a new Warhammer game. I had learned of Warhammer when I was in college but couldn't afford to buy in. The fact that AoS was new and I loved the look of the golden knight minis was enough to convince me to buy a 2 player starter set. I loved the game! Yes, I loved AoS even before the first Generals Handbook came out. Fact is I still use those original rules to introduce people to the game. I've been obsessed with Wargaming and AoS specifically ever since. I read as much lore as I can, I have 6 AoS armies and 4 Warhammer 40k armies, though lately I've been playing Warcry and KillTeam more than the main game, just because of time. I do my best to spread the AoS love.
  5. Oh, I love this!!! I have 1k in Slaves to Darkness and 3 Warcry warbands, with the new sculpts I'll finally take it to a full 2k army!!! I also have 4k in Khorne and 2K Tzeentch that I'll probably get to play with!!! Hmmmn no Scenery or Endless spells announced yet...
  6. When I got into Age of Sigmar I was unemployed hence I didn't have any $$$ (just unemployment checks) but had a lot of time on my hands. I bought the 2 player starter set, the getting started magazine that came with a Slaughterpriest and some paints. I got more models from family for Christmas that year, a few start collecting sets for Stormcast and Khorne, allowing my forces to grow. While I painted it all up nicely I went to the local games store every week to play, made new friends and took my mind off of everything. Building and painting my AoS armies was like therapy and playing the game every week was like my second church. It wasn't until I landed a new job that I could afford more models at my local gaming store and I expanded into a bunch of other armies, but now I hardly have time to build, paint or play... I have a lot of grey plastic that makes me happy. Lately I've been able to play Warcry a few times! So I'd say stick to the start collecting sets and make a Christmas list if your family and friends do that. I like supporting my local games store since that is where I go to play. Online stores like Miniature Market and Amazon sell at a discount and even though I don't buy from Ebay they seam like a good option too.
  7. I couldn't afford Warhammer before I got a job. My parents weren't going to pay for it while I was growing up and in college the only vice I could afford was $20 a month in comic books.
  8. We have Meeting Engagements in the GH2019 for Skirmish sized games now. But its cool that you want to add to the Skirmish rules.
  9. Wow, they didn't wait to release the new book. Great for me! I really want to hunt some monsters!!! and probably use some heroes. But I was expecting the other 2 warbands first...
  10. Unlike a few of you guys, I love AoS lore!!! I got into the game because of the Stormcast Eternals, I loved the models and their story. I bought all the Realmgate Wars campaign books and and novels. It really bothered me when people would say the Stormcast were empty shells, because even in the first book they had them taking their helmets off and showing different characterizations, doubts and fears. They never where automatons they had personalities and that dystopian "MadMax" setting made total sense with the background... I think the Warcry book is great, the only faults I find in it is that it's softcover, they didn't fully reveal the 2 next factions and the binding comes apart easily.
  11. It's a GW game, almost everything is optional.
  12. Hope they show some more stuff at the actual Nova Open. They usually have display cases and dioramas. Can't wait to add some Chaos Demons (I have Bloodletters and Horrors) to the battlefields and keep them as Thralls!!!
  13. I think they are awesome!!! Though I'm still waiting for Deathrattle and Soulblight to get the Nighthaunt treatment... I'm not planning on running an army of them but I want the new Mortarch: Katakros. It's a full on Diorama!
  14. I'm all for ME!!! Great rules, I even bought the special ed of the GH for the cards so I can set up games Warcry style.
  15. New expansion book just announced. It has me excited!!! Looking forward to finding out more about it. Can't wait to be able to use heroes in the game. Hope they accompany the book with lots of new monster miniatures for Thralls and Gargantuans. Might have Mounts here too but I think they'll save that for another expansion.
