    AoS 2 - Skaventide Discussion

    https://jesterpaintingstudio.weebly.com/blog/how-to-speed-paint-skaven i really like this tutorial for clanrats, I think somebody posted it on TGA before but I can’t remember who

    AoS 2 - Skaventide Discussion

    Is it not the case with most armies though? Like Putrid Blightkings are battleline in a pure Nurgle army and to be a Nurgle army all units must have the keyword. Then allies are a seperate thing, if nothing else I feel that’s the way it’s intended but it’s certainly not written in a clear enough manner

    AoS 2 - Clan Verminus / Skaven Discussion

    So many fun looking units it’s hard to decide what I want. I think to start with I’ll go with something along the lines of: Verminlord Warpseer Screaming Bell Warlock Engineer/Bombardier Clawlord Plague priest/Claw Lord 40 clanrats 40 clanrats 40 clanrats 40 plague monks Warp lightning cannon Warp lightning cannon Should be a fun list to try although I’m worried there will be some overlap between the Bell and the warpseer battleshock abilities

    The New Skaven Battletome, Terrain, Model & eSpells!

    Lots of great looking stuff in the new warscroll. Verminlord look great, Screaming Bell looks great. Grey seers can cast and unbind two and I like the change to the warp lightning cannon. Warpfire weapons needed the change I feel so no problems there. not sure how I feel about the change to the Arch Warlock Glaive but it brings him more in line with other wizards combat wise. stormfiends really took a hit with the way they are equipped now. Sadly they got belted with the nerf bat and I can’t see myself using them, which dooms the Skryre allegiance for me. However everything else looks great so it’s not the end of the world. Bring on the verminus horde!

    Sentiment about the new releases

    I’m a little disappointed that some of the old skaven kits weren’t refreshed in plastic and I feel that FEC could do with a new unit or two but they might do something creative in the tome. That being said there are a lot of books that need a refresh and the new armies they release have been amazing bar none. So I’m happy to see old factions get a book and spells if that means the quality of the new factions remains the same

    The Rumour Thread

    That would be interesting and I certainly think that should at least happen with clanrats. I feel Pestilins are quite distinct from the other skaven though and as they have their own Battletome already my feeling is that they will stay that way. I expect Skryre will keep their allegiance and be in the back of the Skaven Battletome much like Soulblight and then the book will have options to mix and match like you said. Just my (un) edjucated guesswork though. At least we can take away that Skaven are coming and that’s exciting

    The Rumour Thread

    So the recent rumours suggest that a lot of AOS 1 books will be updated in one week releases and that Skaven will get a small release this year and a big one next year. So Carrion armoured aside maybe the ‘small’ release will just be an updated Pestilins Battletome?

    AoS 2 - Clan Skyre Discussion

    Ah thanks for the link I was unaware of that, haven’t played Sigmar since 2.0 came out so a little confused on where everything is sometimes. also I was wondering what people thought about endless spells for Skryre, I’ve heard Cogs are pretty much universally good and Balewind for an Arch Warlock is great, but what about others? I’m quite unfamiliar with most of them. cheers

    AoS 2 - Clan Skyre Discussion

    So I read somewhere that Stormfiends are meant to be on 50mm rounds, but I bought two boxes and cracked them open today to find 60mm rounds in them. So I assume they’re supposed to be on 60s now?

    AoS 2 - Clan Skyre Discussion

    Hi guys, I had a question about the warp lightning cannon that came up during my first game with Clan Skryre yesterday. So you roll the power dice and then after that 6 dice to determine if you cause any mortal wounds. Do those six dice count as rolls to hit? It was questioned if a command trait that allows re rolls to hit would affect it, whether it would be affected by the -1 to hit a character and by the rule of 1 is always a fail. Im sure this has been covered somewhere but I don’t know where so thought I’d ask here! Thanks in advance!

    The Rumour Thread

    Anyone else thinks that rat looks like he’s holding a guitar? My group have already nicknamed him Rockout Rat
  14. Mine was 40k, I misread Typhus’ ability in 6th edition as doing a hit to every model for each model it hit, as opposed to doing a hit to the unit for every model in it. It resulted in untold death. Min age of Sigmar we read Mannfreds rule to ignore the first rule to ignore the first time he takes damage. Which varied from ignored an entire 5 wound hit to ignored the first set of wounds he took from an entire unit. That was pretty bad too

    AoS 2 - Beasts of Chaos Discussion

    Haven’t seen Dragon Ogres mentioned much on this thread. People have said the Bulls are overcosted for what they do so what about ogres as an alternative?
