  1. maybe promising?!
  2. argh! The pain in the heart... By the blood god I hope not. Malerion will be a beast of trickery and disguise.
  3. (source: https://www.warhammer-community.com/2020/05/15/mysteries-of-the-mortal-realmsgw-homepage-post-1/) mysterious times ahead.
  4. Here is a Bell of list souls article about Malerion and his "maybe" Shadowstalker connection. https://www.belloflostsouls.net/2020/05/age-of-sigmar-about-those-shadow-aelves.html
  5. @Kramer The text says that executioners might have a place in an shadow kin army?
  6. The Daughters of Khaine battletome is really old now compared to the other battletomes around. Perhaps Morathis and Malerions units get a combined battletome in the future. Thats a big "maybe", because the Daughters are working really well inside their boundries, so new units are questionable. As stated in the new Souldbound Roleplay book, Malerion is not really close to neither Sigmar nor Teclis. He is the silent king in the shadow lands without actively siding with someone. He took a part in the capture of Slaanesh, but I cant confirm that he was closer to any other kin then his Dark aelfen souls he took such a risk of saving from slaaneshs belly. Malerion is a god now himself. As is Morathi and Malerion is more likely to side with his mother then any other power of the realms. Thats the way I see it.
  7. In my opinion you should magnetise the unit. It is worth to put some effort in that. The Avatar statue and the big mirror are easy to magnetise. The Medusa can be magnetised easy as well and Slaugherqueen or Hag Queen can stand on their base if you like. I would glue the two witch elves nevertheless.
  8. No no forget all the spells, the mortal wounds and what-ever-what. Those are just peanuts and small addons. The Hurricanum is a big buff generator that gives all of your Cities-keyworded units +1 to hit and +1 to cast. You might take the Luminark maybe more for the damage, but it gives a defensive buff of wound/mortal wound denial on a 6+. Note that you can give Stormcast units also the Cities of Sigmar Keyword. Now in bigger armies your return of investment of the Hurricanum is greater. It is far less interesting to use it on a 1000 point army then on a 2000 points one. You dont necessarily have the build a whole army around it, because it helps every unit, but you must see that you run into the problems that typical Daughters of Khaine lists have. The focus and castle around an important support unit. The hurricanum can have downsides and thats why the bridge looks so good in those armies. Lastly take a look on the winning tournament lists of Cities of Sigmar. The hurricanum is a candidate for the must have units in tournaments.
  9. a podcast format is always such a time effort. I will give it a try.
  10. that middle secion is rough! I am interested if the body of a vampire lord on zombie dragon might fit the mount?
  11. I really like the list of @Ravinsild and it reminds me of one of the Tournament winners with a Tempests Eye list of Dezember 2019 https://www.belloflostsouls.net/2019/12/aos-list-of-the-week-the-tempests-eye-sees-victory.html looks very competitive! I would like to show you my first iteration of that list with a dark aelfen vibe, some conversion ideas etc. etc. What do you think? Still competitive (3 instead of 6 Dracolines)?

  12. ok this looks fine and scaly. A few things: 1) as @readercolin mentioned already, you are forced to take Anvilguard in this configuration with the 3 behemoths 2) I think you did the best possible setup you could achieve with your model planning. However I wouldnt build and paint all 3 Hydras. Swap one for a Kharybdiss if you want to to make your hobby feeling more diverse. Khary is a bit weaker then the Hydra, but she is such a beauty ❤️ My Hydra/Kharybdiss (her name is Scylla) is completely magnetised so I can swap the heads and the tail. It was a big effort but worth in my opinion. It will be tricky with the color scheme though, but it works. Overall I think you will enjoy your army. Give it a story and a background!
  13. ...ah yeah. If you take the 10 additional corsairs you will drop one Kharibdyss. Can the rest of the points be filled?
  14. one thing first: plz give your army list a continous format. It is bad to read. Well in this configuration I do not think it is a very competitive list, but it depends strongly what you are up against and which lists. The best unit in the list are the Scourgerunner Chariots. The lists competitiveness grows with those. If it is possible I would suggest to buy 10 more Corsairs to make it a 40 aelf blob. This one can be a tough nut to crack on a objective. The fleetmasters are cheap, but very squishy. Overall your winning condition are mission objective not damage I think.
  15. Either those or you can stick with GW and make use of the old metal Carnosaurus. I was inspired by a picture like: As you asked I was thinking about making count-as models for the better Demigryph Warscroll and came to the Carnosaurus solution. What stopped me from getting started is that an army needs a bunch of those to get effective. I mean we need at least 3 big cold ones to proxy a squad of demigryph Knights. The problem of the metal model above is that the miniatures will have the same posture. Due to the metal if consists of conversions might be challenging. In the picture a Malus Darkblade conversion sits on top. I would use the Cold one Knights. The legs of the models can be adjusted and therefore fit various mounts in my opinion. Slap some green stuff on the Carnosaurus to make him look more armored if that is wanted. Another idea. Why play Demigryph knights anyway when other options like the Stormcast Dracolines might be more useful. Check out this thread. The Dracolines might be good mounts for some Cold one knights and this warscroll is also intersting. Stormcast units can easily be brought in a cities of sigmar army without having to ally them. This picture is for size comparison what a smaller (then a stormcast) model would look like on the dracoline.
  16. It was "Spite" 🙂 yeah. The books said alone the heads of a cold one could bite a man in half.
  17. Yeah! Malekith is very picky about that one. No male sorcerers in the dark elven people except himself. Some other Witchking was most certainly to "lightheaded"...
  18. Just an idea to use the models for AoS. The Mistweaver Saeh looks pretty similar and the warscroll could fit for the model in the center. The old Shade Warscrolls might fit the style of the Warriors left and right.
  19. true. Warcry has a intersting campaign system though.
  20. @Vongolo Did you have the chance for a testgame yet?
  21. You might want to combine the Demigryph mounts with Cold-one Knights for example. Additionally add spikes and armor bits that are Dark Elve related. So sad those feather beasts have a better warscroll then Cold one beasts...
  22. ok lets do the hypothesis check. What we know as a fact: 1. The Khainite Shadowstalkers are a Warcry Warband ("well thats an obvious one") 2. The name Khainite has its origins in the Khainite Assassines of the Druchii in the old world. The Khainite Assassines were newborn children taken away by witch elves in the death night. Some were never been seen again, but some made it through a hard education of becoming an Assassine. Those assassines were one key trademark of the Dark Elve armies. 3. The Khainite Shadowstalkers origin from Ulgu. This is the realm of Malerion, were also Morathi found home. 4. In the Trailer they say "by Morathis will we were remade". The aelf souls were extracted by Tyrion, Teclis, Malerion and Morathi out of Slaaneshs belly to create their kin. Information we get out of the trailer: 1. We find the Druchii signiature weapon, the Repeater Crossbow in a new Design "Van Helsing style" 2. The design is of the models is very different to the Daughters of Khaine design line. We find shadowy cloaks and camparison to the Mistweaver of Warhammer Quest. 3. That silouette is a Witch elve by 95%!! -> so obviously the Khainite Shadowstalkers are at least allied with the Daughers of Khaine, which are Morathis kin. 4. Sword and armor design really remind me of my beloved Druchii 5. The logo: purple/black are the Dark Elve color scheme. We find an infinity symbol and a blood tear. The spikes also remind of Dark elves. What can we assume: After Teclis now having the lumineth realmlords, Malerion is the next aelfen release. Personally I think the Queen must make way for the King.
  23. +1, Morathi is a tarpit unit, made to soak up damage of big or important enemy units. Cant go toe to toe with Archeon though. We must bring the 10 SoS between her and Archi. @justpayload You seemed to made the best out of your early loss. Archi is quite expensive. About the Morathi and Malerion thing, I wonder if you guys keep in mind that Morathi still is Malerions mother after all? Both of them are scheming and Malekith aka. Malekith was always taking the big power from himself. His mother accepted the second place besides her son, but served their realm with her wits and her own power. There might be conflict, but I think Malerions Shadowkin will be allied with the Daughters of Khaine which also origin from Ulgu. So I do not think we will expect new models for the DoK range. I also do not think they need anything new to be powerful. The release line is also stated: There we see the timeline of aelfen release. After the Lumineth Malerions kin is to come.
  24. In Warcry there is a new Warband previewed! The Khainite Shadowstalkers, which seem to be the first encounter we get with maybe Malerions dark kin! https://www.belloflostsouls.net/2020/04/games-workshop-preview-3-warcry-gets-a-new-warband.html I am a Dark Elve fanatic and those Repeater Crossbows are great. Overall they look like two assassines or Shades combined with a sorceress.
