  1. 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.
  2. 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...
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. We have Meeting Engagements in the GH2019 for Skirmish sized games now. But its cool that you want to add to the Skirmish rules.
  6. 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...
  7. 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.
  8. It's a GW game, almost everything is optional.
  9. 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!!!
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. No, Inspiring Presence is not a problem. It's actually perfectly named for what it does and it works fine.
  14. In my local store we don't have any issues with Rolling for initiative every turn. We are either wishing for a double turn or dreading that our opponent will get it. The Randomness of it adds excitement and suspense to the game! I consider it an integral part of AoS.
  15. That's how Stormcast Eternals should work, fluff wise.
