  1. The living city has all those things but does have stormcast but that is because the free cities sprung up where the stormcasts made footholds. Shouldn’t be too hard to read the portion about Ghyran (aka green) in the main Rulebook to come up with some suitable place or name.
  2. If someone threatened to bust up my experience Nagash model I would threaten them right back by saying I would bust their whole army and laugh. he is probably just playing with you in a brusque way, my friend I got into the hobby was always like that and I got used to it very quickly. He also had a tendency to cheat with dice rolls and won every game we ever played to the point that if I killed just a few dwarf warriors he would get mad and want to quit the game. It’s really a matter of if your relationship with that person is more important than sweating the small stuff like that and trying to be friendly with them despite all the negative.
  3. Are they using a gryphcharger as a beast of burden in that picture? I get the breaking the ground because of chaos corruption in the background of the picture that just fuddles me a little that a creature that is more intelligent than a horse and can run faster than the speed of sound would be used to haul tools and the such. also does anyone remember other mounts and things from the novels? I remember the man and woman who were riding lizard creatures through a swamp and some thing that was described in the Hamilcar short story were he fought the shaven mech thing as being described as being huge like a stonehorn. Never thought of the gryphchargers as anything like that but I suppose anything is possible in the mortal realms.
  4. This has been a fun read with all its ups and downs. Speaking from my personal experience with my transgender wife she isn’t very keen on the hobby but she tends to like the female models I have better than the male or daemonic. When I first showed her Slaanesh and expected her to be offended by the way they focus so much on the hermaphrodite aspects of the daemons. She didn’t like them at all but it was mostly to do with how the Daemonettes look. After the released the hedonites battletome and the new keeper of secrets she picked it up at the GW and said she liked how it looked so go figure. What I guess I am getting at and what a lot of others have said is that we are an invested community to be posting about this stuff online in the first place and what initially will draw someone to a certain model or army isn’t really a gauge of them as people are constantly changing their perception of the hobby when they are not as invested as the folks who are 10+ years into the hobby or fantasy in general.
  5. The Tzaangors are ready to march! I got these guys done over the last few weeks. The newer set I made as many of the mutants and great weapons I was missing as I could and the paint job is a little lighter on the skin but it’s not all that noticeable. I feel pretty good about how the two batches blend together. I have got a few sets of enlightened and a shaman are on the way so I’m looking forward to assembling them and putting the paint to the plastic to finish churning this Tzeentch horde out.
  6. Like how the special weapons in warmachine work? Do they still operate like that anymore? It’s been quite a while since I’ve looked at the core rules for those games.
  7. You’re right when you look at it like that. People still have the idea of the command group from Warhammer fantasy in their minds when they thing about it. one person even said they couldn’t think of any historical precedent for it even though it could have been done in the past despite we in the modern day not knowing about it. Given desperate times or to draw attention to a banner for commands to be given I’d say the horn in question didn’t have much of a range as a musical instrument. at the end of the day folks with be as they are and it is safer to just make them all separate models instead incase your opponent acts like a few have suggested and walk away because of a model being two things at once. I will make a separate musician and standard bearer because I found a solution I like and to be honest I am one of those people who like the old command group look that kind of anchors the whole blob of models together.
  8. I didn’t mean to offend anyone asking how it’s unsportsmanlike. I Thought it was such a minor thing that it wouldn’t really give much of an advantage at all. If it was the last guy I doubt the +1 to bravery or run and charge rolls would be that big a deal as he would probably run from battleshock anyway. I didn’t know it would be a thing that would make people not want to play the game with me. i have resolved to either convert it or use the horn from the bloodcrushers set anyway so I guess I won’t be a bad opponent to play against.
  9. Oh I figured you had from what you said. I like the new ones but the older plastics have that nice 10 man unit for what I feel they will charge for five in the future. The skullcrushers come with a left handed horn that looks better to be frank. If I have one in my cavernous bits box then I can just file the Khorne rules off of if need be. I posted this to the rules board but it hasn’t had nearly as many useful replies as this thread.
  10. My intent wasn’t necessarily to take advantage of any benefits it would give to have them as the same model but to have 9 guys with lances out of 10 as opposed to to the 8 if they were separate models. i think it would be an easy fix for them to clarify that each needs to be a separate model instead of saying they need to be citadel models.
  11. If you don’t mind me asking, how is it bad sportsmanship?
  12. I was thinking of converting him so that he is holding the horn in his left hand instead. Having built them do you think this would be difficult?
  13. I raised this question after thinking of buying a set of chaos knights and wanting to use one model for both roles as I don’t like the way it makes the unit look. the other members on the other thread brought up good points and I decided to post here as they suggested. so the only mention I can find in the rules are in the core rules and on the warscroll: So rules board what is your take on this command group conundrum?
  14. So one argument for it must be appropriate citadel miniatures which can be interpreted as must be assembled as per instructions as the second argument posits Or that they simply have to be citadel manufactured products which they would be. i understand why it would make sense to follow conventional thought I just always hated the Hornblower on the chaos knights even back when they were multipart metal sets. Why couldn’t it just be in his left instead of a shield. rules debates aside I might as well convert the thing to his left hand.
  15. The way it is worded it sounds like it can be the same model to me. I understand that it’s implied they should be different models but the wording is similar to the original warscroll for liberators that says one in five can take the special weapon options so the prime could be equipped with it. I know they updated it with later iterations of the warscroll. im not trying to pull a fast one on anyone and there isn’t any real benefit as the model can be removed and you loose the benefits of both options. I thought it would make the unit look cooler if there were more lances instead of the horn and standard taking up so much space in the front rank. i know it’s a carry over from wfb with the command groups being specified in the core rules and this has only carried over with the older kits.
