    Wrath and Rapture

    Wouldn't surprise me if it had an ability like the old Siren Song making a unit have to move towards it. There used to be a spell that did something similar but I can't remember the name of it.

    My choice would be drop the spells and 5 of the Hellstriders and the CP and take 30 daemonettes. Given the summoning rules I think it's better to take as many characters as you possibly can.

    Holographic map I guess. In fact, isn't that Warhammer World?? Edit: Yes it is haha

    Yeah I assume it halves the move characteristic. I think it would have to say halves any movement. Although it saying that turn rather than that phase could imply it works for charges and pile in moves too.

    Am I totally wrong in thinking that if they replace the marauder kit that would be the first plastic kit they're replaced since 6th edition? Although I suppose if they're spurned off to their own faction and not called marauders any more it could be argued they still hadn't.

    Entirely depends on if they can fill out a full faction of Marauders in an interesting way I suppose. It's a bit like a Beastman army without the interesting bits like monsters and goat heads (or horse bottoms).

    Makes sense if Darkoath is taking over the marauder side. The question is will it be just the marauders or replacing Slaves to Darkness entirely. Chaos Warriors must be the oldest plastic kit now and look a bit weedy next to the Stormcast and Khorne Chaos Warriors.

    I use the app, but yeah the allegiance abilities that get added seem to be the 2017 pages despite selecting the 2018 option. Not the biggest deal since they didn't change as a whole but is a bit annoying. I'd either just note down the costs of what you're likely to want to summon or keep a screenshot of the page open so you can flip to it easily.

    I could see them perhaps giving the Seeker chariots run and charge to make them more of a choice compared to the exalted chariot but can't see the exalted on getting it. It's good as it is.
  10. I did Architecture at university not long ago and as part of that I started to experiment with the possibilities of getting my models printed rather than the traditional methods (and familiar to anyone that makes terrain) of mountains of foamboard, knives and creating a big mess with glue. Being a poor student I ended up only getting one printed at a local business I found online. Not needing (or being able to afford) a large model and not being familiar with the best way to get it printed I sent over my entire, unedited building model and after a few false starts below was the result. Around the same time I learned of a friend of a friend buying their own printer who was looking for some bits to print out to see what it could do. In the spirit of running before you can walk I took a local building for inspiration, modeled up a wall section and sent him the files to see what the result would be. The end result, while there being room for improvement, were quite encouraging so I decided to go ahead to try and finish the model using a printer of my own and modelled up the rest of the parts and had some fun along the way figuring out how it would all fit together. In the end the model came in at 56 parts as shown in the renders below of all the parts together and an exploded view. Because the model is supposed to be interacted with I thought it was better not to bother with the roof so you can place models inside, not have to mess about with taking it on and off (and storing it) and just to save on material on something that I didn't expect to be on most of the time. Below is the model assembled and painted. In the end I decided to print out at a scale of 1:50 which is a bit bigger than the traditional scale but since the models have been increasing in size over time anyway I thought it fit well with those currently in use.

    Well they're not Khorne that's why. As a faction I am curious how they're going to fit in though. The Community article says they fight alongside the Slaves to Darkness so I presume StD will become pure Chaos Warriors and marauders will be retired.

    Priest would be a good fit actually with some different tunes to play.

    Now I really want some fantasy version of noise marines.

    I do really like all those models but the base changes is really frustrating. Not because I think it makes a vast amount of difference in game but because it seems a lot of other people do. My fiends have been rebased onto 40mm round bases because that's what they're supposed to be using according to the base they come with and the suggested base size sheet, And yet, these new fiends are on larger new oval bases so I either need to cut them off again or hope the ovals are 40mm wide and try to get together some kind of base adapter.

    I wanted to try something like this: Allegiance: Slaanesh - Host: Pretenders LEADERS Dragon Ogor Shaggoth (180) Keeper Of Secrets (260) Daemon Prince Of Slaanesh (160) Daemon Prince Of Slaanesh (160) Herald Of Slaanesh on Exalted Seeker Chariot (160) The Masque Of Slaanesh (80) UNITS 30 x Gors (210) -Gor-Blades & Beastshields 1 x Tuskgor Chariots (60) 1 x Tuskgor Chariots (60) 3 x Dragon Ogors (140) 30 x Daemonettes Of Slaanesh (270) 5 x Hellstriders Of Slaanesh (100) -Claw spear - Enrapturing banner BATTALIONS Depraved Drove (150) TOTAL: 1990/2000 EXTRA COMMAND POINTS: 1 WOUNDS: 147 LEADERS: 6/6 BATTLELINES: 3 (3+) BEHEMOTHS: 3/4 ARTILLERY: 0/4 I'd wanted a dragon ogre themed army a while back (like 7th.ed while back) but game changes when 8th came out put it on hold so this was trying to fit some stuff into my daemon army with half converted models I had stuffed in a box. No artifact choices or anything but the idea being it split into the 2 halves of the beasts being one blob and the daemons the other with the Shaggoth as the general. I used to really like a unit of pleasureseekers in oldhammer as a grindy unit to tie things up which is the dragon ogres here with the Shaggoth in a position to support them while trying to take wounds and then heal them up again to generate depravity points. I'm undecided between Seekers and Pretenders though. It used to be Pretenders all the way but with summoning now the extra move means the difference between a newly summoned unit likely making a charge roll instead of failing.
