    What is up with the Stormcast's mounts?

    Stormcast themselves? They're masks, so nah. Makes them all the more terrifying.

    The Rumour Thread

    Actually quite a fan of both the characters, the tauralon especially. I am going for a very grimdark diablo influenced force, and I feel with the right paintjob the tauralon can look terrifying.

    Agree to disagree, personally dislike space marines.

    Becca Scott

    As someone who enjoys a select few shows from G&S, I am familiar with Becca as a presenter. I have absolutely no issues with her, but to be entirely objective, I see this more as a deal between two companies, with potentially very little to do with her. GW will have had a deal with G&S to promote their games such as shadespire. Clearly, GW was happy with that, and that's why they have gone again to an established group who have experience and knowledge in this field. I can't say for certain how much the actual presenter matters outside of being good at her job enough to encourage repeat business.

    Oh no definitely thin it! It can get really thick otherwise. For the wing you see there, toxic purple had probably 6-8 coats, super thin.
  6. Hey Megabosses and Cave Shamans, thought I would start a thread where we can discuss what we think the slowly revealing AoS 2 changes will mean for our alliance and the factions therein. Personally, being able to use any command ability, not just the general, will give some nice flexibility to my ironjawz list. I can use the fungoid early to help with movement, and then pop the megaboss when things get fighty.

    Best I can do to show you. It's only a few layers over the toxic purple so it has a lot of that in its colouration. There are some good examples online, psychotic illusions is a popular one. Lots of alpha legion.

    They work just fine with ordinary shades, though you may need to gloss them back up, as with other metallics. I use nuln gloss to darken the area nearer the wings on mine. I paint them all over with toxic purple, which is shifting green/purple, and paint the edges in psychotic illusions, which is a teal/purple/red. It gives them an almost petrol-spill look, with naturally lighter tips. If you don't want to do anything quite as dramatic, you can mix the chameleon paint with stormhost silver to make a brighter highlight layer.

    Yeah, I quickly fell in love with mine after a few games, they hit really hard. Unfortunately it just isn't strong enough synergy. Try dropping the heralds and beast for 3 plague drones and an ordinary poxbringer, never hurts to take more wizards.

    @CaptainNippon I like it, but honestly don't think you need the beast or the heralds. Removing them gives you 300 points, 200 of which could be plague drones.

    1 of 6. More survivable to reach opponents, more chances to bring back dead one's as the unit lasts longer. Throws out a horrible amount of attacks, just have a lord of afflictions follow them. That said, I am running 3 of them and 2 pusgoyles, just because gorgeous models.

    Indeed, she is from game the game, but also for a while now has been hosting G&S how to play videos. They've done Games Workshop boxed games before like Shadespire, so it's a natural choice for a crossover. She's a very engaging host too.

    Great choice! Look forward to seeing more shark. I use a couple of the colour shifts on my plague drone wings.

    Plague drone basing

    Hey guys, just wondering what fellow nurgle types did with plague drones and their flying stands? They sit far too low. Just wondered if anyone had good tips or examples.

    Thanks! He is a pair of legs from a blightking, head, arms, body from a pusgoyle blightlord, right hand is a chopped down one from a warshrine ogor creature (any open hand would do, nurgle has quite a few which is nice). Also used a spare loincloth from somewhere in the nurgle range but literally any would work with a bit of chopping. The swarm is from bloab rotspawned, and the head I attached to the front is from the plague drones. I have just finished his staff/wand as well, which was a spare piece of arachnarok howdah, and the staff head from the malignant plaguecaster. I scavenged that part off a GW York regular, so didn't have the bottom half but I like the stick I used, it looks unrefined but also has that notch, which to me makes sense if he is holding it with a tentacle, helps to have that resting on it. I am a complete greenstuff novice but found this a good stepping stone, just had to sculpt the join between flies and deaths head, and the extra fat roll to cover the gap between legs and body.

    Finished one plague drone (will get finished photos soon) and converted a sorceror.

    Lord of Afflictions bitz

    Hey guys, I have recently gotten hold of a Lord of Afflictions, but was missing the incubatch and the head with the eye (prefer it to the single horn head). Just wondered if anyone had them spare from pusgoyles they wouldnt mind sending my way? I have some nurgle parts and ironjawz bitz to trade if you like. I'm UK.

    Hardest kit you've built?

    The old old metal hydra, and the dark elf metal manticore. Firstly, heads suspended at 90 degree angles will never stay up not pinned. And making a large metal model rest on two metal legs that are not part of the main body? Terrible.

    So to answer the easier question, I believe if it is a command trait it would specify wizard, otherwise makes the general into a wizard so would be fine on a lord of chaos. In terms of a mortal list, there is the varanguard book Tzeentch battalion, you could build towards that. I'd suggest getting a unit of each type of disk, and a box of arcanites. That way you can test the units out, but they're all fun. Also gaunt summoner is awesome.

    Since I actually managed to complete it last month, I'll keep it nicer and conservative again: 3 Plague Drones.

    What do people think about if we get pointless summoning using only contagion points? Would it make Slimux more valuable getting the second tree turn 1?
