  1. I don't have any of those, problems with buying blind on release I suppose, I went with orc flesh as it sounded right. I picked up some contrast medium today though, I was going to get the white and a few others, but the combined price of my basket was just sky rocketing, those contrasts are expensive. So you just mixed them together in equal parts? What was your base colour? Did you do any other layers over the top? Are the whole models done with contrast? They are really good, they are a great advert for contrast, I have seen some stuff that makes me think I was crazy for buying them.
  2. @flemingmmaI already have some spare orks and grots I can experiment on. I'm just trying to save a bit of time. I mean there are so many options to try and find the best look with, I only want to do the skin with contrasts so priming the whole model white is probably not a good idea, then which colour to use for the base, the wraithbone or grey seer, a light green. Then there's a learning curve with contrast, how much to put on, do I need to thin it etc. Then do I highlight again after that, at this point if I'm putting a base colour over the primer then highlighting over contrast would I be saving any time at all. @Minis by Night Thanks for the link, they are very much test models, have you done any more on any of them? @Sleboda He looks good! What was your recipe for the skin? Those guys behind him too.
  3. Has anyone painted any orc/goblins with contrasts yet? I have been working on a project re imagining Space Crusade for a while now, and I have got to the point where I need to paint the Orks and Gretchins/Grots. There are quite a lot to do, on the one hand I would love the time saving aspect of contrast for the skin, but on the other I've put a lot of time and effort (not to mention money) into this project so I don't really want to use them as my practice/learning models for Contrast, I've been trying to paint everything to quite a high standard, and from what I've seen of contrast is a complete range from just plain awful paint jobs to some amazing ones, and I don't want these to look awful if it doesn't go well. So really I'm asking for peoples examples, or opinions about it, or combinations like the orc flesh contrast over a green base paint, any other advice, that sort of thing, before I commit one way or the other. Thanks
  4. Just thought I'd share my completed collection. Started painting the Nightvault Warbands about 6 weeks ago. I have limited painting time due to family and work so I'm pretty happy I managed to get these all finished, practically speed painting by the end. I have really enjoyed painting most of these, the sheer variety has kept it interesting. I will say that despite the bases being pretty cool, I wish they were all Shadespire themed rather than the world of the race they are from. I have my Shadespire terrain in there made from the Mausoleum, and the Nightvault ones too.
  5. Just curious really, I own all of them, but is that the norm, have a got a plastic crack problem. I just wonder what the average is.
  6. This is from an article about Underworlds Online on Eurogamer. 'While remaining tight-lipped on the specifics, he did say "we're doing something a bit different to other CCG-style games, as we're not a CCG, and we're keen to give players as much choice as possible when they come to create their decks."' While this is a comment about the online version, it makes me wonder if this is going to be GW's policy for the main game too. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-04-26-warhammer-underworlds-online-is-a-faithful-recreation-of-the-great-board-game?fbclid=IwAR3WO5Jr8qwmglx3f-QCJDCBwvdegz4ganT8OSHXg3-Zb_FJPg0J2M0uazo
  7. This comment really needs to go in both threads but this one seems to be where the conversation is headed. Where I am now with this is, I am most likely going to buy the new core box as that will come with whatever the new game mechanic is, new boards and maybe some new scenery, hopefully not another Stormcast Warband (3 is enough), and then just buy the warbands I want to play with. This is regardless of card rotation or not. I have read through all the very detailed and well-articulated arguments for card rotation, and I agree with them. I don’t play in tournaments so I don’t have to keep up with any meta and I don’t want to carry on spending £150 a year on a game that isn’t my main game. I have enough now, and Shadespire and Nightvault together are a good game that I can get years of enjoyment out of, I still haven’t tried all of the warbands yet. However, if GW decided to sell the Universal Cards separately, I would carry on buying them*, I don’t want to carry on buying warbands that don’t interest me anymore, I don’t like to have models un painted in boxes. I agree with a lot of what @PlasticCraic says, I think we are in the same boat. So I would be happy for this game to go to card rotation, I think if they just added the next years set of cards into the mix that would make it even less appealing as I feel there are too many cards right now. But I will probably be getting off the boat regardless, might take it out on sunny bank holiday though. *added bold text in case GW marketing exec reads this lol
  8. @riddlesworth, That was a very informative post. I'm largely in favour of what you say for the state of the game, it all sounds good. I am not sure how it could be implemented though. I seriously doubt GW will stop selling Universal cards with the warbands. It is a model that works, i just have to look at my own overflowing collection to see that. This is a game designed for competitive players and I am guessing they are in the majority, they will not buy the old warbands if they come with cards that are no longer valid for competitive play. Competitive players will also already own all the warbands and will not want the models twice if they come with updated cards, if they did that they would have to sell a seperate upgrade deck for each warband. So if when the third Underworlds game comes out it invalidates Shadespire Universal Cards, then GW would, either have to stop selling the 8 Shadespire Warbands with Universals or have to include new Universal cards. Selling them with new Universal cards would infuriate a lot of players as they would need to buy the models again, and it would increase bloat into the game. It's one thing to replace cards but it's entirely another to buy the same models again, especially if you know that you'll be replacing Nightvault ones the year after too. Or if they go down this route retiring the older warbands might be the only option, they sell the models seperate now so that might be their way of keeping the models alive.
  9. I have never played these games or even heard of card rotation in games, how does card rotation work?
  10. I completely understand the need for GW to keep releasing new Warbands, I would still like to see some more, there are ones am hoping for, and I've seen games stop getting support and they slowly die so I don't want that either. I can see why they include the universal cards with the warbands, they are a business, and it is not a large investment if you have been keeping up with it, and I think it is a pretty good deal, compare it to a character model for instance. But it is about £150 a year for everything, and if you are starting now and want everything that £300 is a large amount up front. I agree with PlasticCraic it would be better to release warbands without universal cards and for them to be in separate packs, I don't think they will though. A lot of this is why I am still unsure whether to carry on with season 3, if I don't keep up then, that is quite a lot again to catch up. Another reason is I felt like it was a good complete game after Shadespire, I didn't think it needed a new game mechanic, I thought it was pretty well balanced, now Underworlds is finished, I didn't mind spells, I wouldn't be bothered if they were in or not really. I think there is less balance now as in regard to types of play, I like objective play the most, but it is an uphill struggle from the first roll, and with cards that remove objectives from the battlefield it gets harder all the time. The direction I would like it to go in, is keep releasing warbands but without Universal Cards, release Universal cards as a separate packs, and again to agree with PlasticCraic I would be on the hook forever, re address the balance between objective play and other types. If there is a new mechanic I would like something like different types of play, I never played the Katraphane relic one at the back of the Shadespire rule book, it was gone from Nightvault one completely, but something like that anyway. I'm split on updated cards for the first warbands, I don't have enough room now, and having to throw them away and buy new ones would be painful.
  11. With the release of the final two warbands for Nightvault, my mind has turned to the next season/wave. I own everything for Underworlds, I have bought it all on pre order as it has come out. Looking at my collection now, I kind of feel I have enough, my display case is full, my deck storage box is full and they don't even have the two new warbands in them, deck building takes ages due to the sheer amount of cards, and I just don't really think I need any more. I am not sure where it needs to go as a game either, I assume the next one will have a new game mechanic, but does it need one? I assume it will have another Stormcast Warband, but what would they even use for that? And I feel like we are already getting to card duplication point. Saying all of that, I love the game, not only do I own everything, I have bought 2 starter sets and warbands as presents to people, I love deck building, I love how you can play the same warbands and deck against the same opponent and have completely different games, I love the models, the art, and I will probably carry on buying it, £40 for the starter and £35 every few months isn't a lot in the scheme of things, I wouldn't like to be starting now though. I don't play tournaments however as there is none near where I live so I don't have any pressure to keep up with the meta. What do other people think? Do you have enough? Does it need more? Are you going to keep buying to keep up with the meta? Does it need a new mechanic?
  12. I haven't played a game with Godsworn Hunt yet (haven't had a chance), but I was thinking of a tactic to do with Oath of Conquest, and Oath of Denial. I was thinking if you declare one and keep the other secret, then this might make your opponent move their fighters into the other area. For example if you declare Oath of Conquest and move your fighters into their territory, they should stay in their own territory or follow you back there to stop you gaining this card, by doing so removing their fighters from your territory meaning you can score Oath of Denial. All this depends on you drawing the cards obviously and at good times, has anyone tried this? Also has anyone doubled up with the cards, so Oath of Conquest and normal Conquest?
  13. I saw this posted on a Facebook page, looks like the kind of information you need. https://www.hexesandwarbands.com/blog/underworlds-expansions-guide?fbclid=IwAR12GGNVYvP_jyy5y9TdCXJxAl46n7wdj8b5Dvmys7jLao1Mp-akDUo28cg
  14. Hi, haven't played in a while, does anyone know what happened to the vast majority of the Deck Builds on the Underworlds site? I can only see the core set deck for each of the warbands that came in the starter boxes? Sorry if this has been covered before, I had a search for it but couldn't find anything. Thanks
  15. Good call on the Marauder Horsemen, I think they would be a good fit. I've never heard of this War Mammoth before, from a quick google search it looks really good model wise, I think it's forgeworld and out of print though. Do you know where its rules would even be?
