  1. I started AOS and the hobby 3,5 years ago with my boys (9 and 6 at the time) and yes we slowly started with the scenarii from the Stromcast/Khorne 1st edition box. very good learning curve, and since completely into the game, even participating with the boys to AOS turnaments each 2 months for 2 years now in Switzerland and France (1st 40K one next month). it is now a family hobby, with boys starting to be better than me at playing, but I still be the one painting most of the figs. Just start with some quick games, with your different srmies to show the differences and then add complexity slowly. Also a book or a battletome to read for the fluff and some youtube videos ( it works better with my boys) for fluff/ army rules/ battle reports and then nothing else matters than AOS
  2. if you want Egyptian Stromcast, just play Thousand Sons at 40K
  3. if you want magic and killyness, just go for Tzeench: Daemons are heavy magic, but really heavy, (and you can play them also at 40K), not too strong otherwise, but mixed with the human part, kilyness is arising a lot. + you can add slaves to darkness units, which make a lot for the variety, both in term of playing and of painting. 40K side, you can then also quickly expand into 1k sons with also a lot of variety and a lot of models which all in all can be used in both systems. when well used and the right combos, both in AOS and 40K quite competitive
  4. some boxes like the kill zones would be perfect: no too expensives, a lot of stuff, different themes (6 for kill team so far including the starter set one) an with 1/2 boxes or a few other pieces the table looks very interesting
  5. from what I understood at my local GW store a week ago, Slaanesh release should not be too far away. Maybe ( my opinion) with a battle box against new aelves
  6. Wow! GW should offer you as reward for your dedication the new Forge World Khorne Dragon, and at live-free ticket to Warhammer World!!!
  7. do you mean only AOS or also 40K, Bloodbowl...?😜
  8. My list for a 2K tournament in 2 days: Heavy heroes, with decent MWa and might go well against monsters, fast, but… might be killed rapidly. Just wanted to try it as I just finished painting the LoC :) Heroes: Herald of Tzeentch on Burning Chariot (200) General - Command Trait : Nexus of Fate - Staff of Change - Lore of Change : Unchecked Mutation Kairos Fateweaver (380) - Lore of Change : Bolt of Tzeentch Lord of Change (380) 1 Artefact : Wellspring of Arcane Might - Lore of Change : Fold Reality Ogroid Thaumaturge (180) - Lore of Fate : Infusion Arcanum Units: 3 x Screamers of Tzeentch (100) 3 x Screamers of Tzeentch (100) 1 x Exalted Flamers of Tzeentch (100) 1 x Burning Chariots of Tzeentch (160) 10 x Pink Horrors of Tzeentch (200) - Lore of Change : Treason of Tzeentch 10 x Pink Horrors of Tzeentch (200) - Lore of Change : Bolt of Tzeentch TOTAL: 2000/2000 EXTRA COMMAND POINTS: 0 WOUNDS: 92 LEADERS: 4/6 BATTLELINES: 3 (3+) BEHEMOTHS: 2/4 ARTILLERY: 0/4 ARTEFACTS: 1/1 ALLIES: 0/40 PS: Mainly for the fun :) photos of the army attached
  9. just go for chaos daemons. you get 4 differents armies that you can mix (or not), and you can add slaves to darkness models and skavens models (nurgle). and if one day you want to try and play 40k you also have an enjoyable army to start with
  10. awesome! do you plan to market it? Depending on the price ( I am in Switzerland), I would be interested.
  11. I bought the Death box 3 weeks ago in a GW store :).
  12. - Order: either Stromcast Eternals or Daughters of Khaine - Chaos: Daemons of Tzeentch (could also be a mixed 40K battleforce) - Death: Nighthaunt - Destruction: I dont' know. Then, I am not sure whether GW will continue with the 4 AOS and 4 40K battleforces pattern: as far as I understood, there will be terrains and paints bundles, the 40K Warhammer quest is expected by November, like the Khorne/Slaanesh box set, (should be Daemons, i.e. both for AOS and 40K) and the Ynnari box set also this year (maybe withe Ynnari Codex too). If you add some new Kill Team (new teams, new Kill Zones, …), some stuff for Necromunda, Bloodbowl and Underworlds, it might be more than enough for Christmas… Just hope for some surprises ...
  13. Hi guys, My boy, 12.5 years old is learning English as second language at his school in Switzerland. this is the 3rd year, so still low level in English, but improving. I start thinking/planning to send him in exchange holidays in a British family with a kid of his age, with sth like 2 weeks in one family, and vice-versa. AS he (like myself and his younger brother who is 9) is a complete AOS fan, playing AOS (also in turnaments here in Switzerland), Bloodbowl, Warhammer Quest, and starting 40K / Kill Team, I was thinking that he might be a very good idea to mix the language learning and the game. He also like Playstation games (currently FIFA, Fortnite and Paladin) We are French living in the German part of Switzerland, meaning we speak fluently French and German. The summer, we go mainly back in France, in Bretagne and in Béziers (South of France, see, sun and …) to see the family. Anybody that would be interested by such an exchange? Or Ben: What about setting up a AOS summer kid camp at Derby/Nottingham? That might interest Games Workshop Thanks Best regards
  14. Hi Guys, I am in the German part of Switzerland (Langenthal), but I am French. I play AOS with my boys, and we also participate to some tournaments in Zürich/Lucern. Happy to discuss with you for potential games/discussions
  15. I guess it will be some heretics Stormcast... but not from Chaos, but Death... If I am not wrong im one of the books, one Lord Relictor has a brother within Death, and we know that each time they are reforged they lose a part of their souls. The Vandus Heresy....
