  1. Finally. The cycle is complete. ๐Ÿ˜” All the books will be updated for AoS 2! I'm not certain but this might be the first time in 30 years that GW will have one of games systems fully updated! I'm really looking forward to this! I love my dinosaurs and have looked forward to the day when we'd get updated rules. My only hope is that our big dinos get updated rules to reflect the fact that you're fighting a gigantic, freakin' dinosaur! Let me have sweet Jurassic Park moments; Stegadons plowing through troops like a living battering ram, Bastiladons smashing Chaos warriors aside with their tails, Carnosaurs eating lawyers, splendid! Also, giant magical aztec pyramid thingie...pretty sweet! Definitely gonna pick one up, paint it, and loan it to my FLGS since it will make excellent terrain for AoS in general! So the Seraphon are turning into the "Coalesced", huh? Hmmm....sounds like they are gonna start living in the realms themselves if I had to guess. They've been mentioned several times in lore and Black Library novels as living amongst the Free People in Star Temples or something like that. I hope they begin establishing temple cities and the giant magical aztec pyramid thingie seems to suggest this. Lastly, since it seems its the unwritten law that I have to complain about something...this free dino-flavored (ew) ice cream I have is ok I guess, but its just too darn cold!
  2. Hi! I'm Kamose. I don't mind losing; I just enjoy the chance to play with my toys. To be fair though, I haven't lost EVERY game I've ever played. In a dice game like Warhammer where I have the freedom to pick my opponent I'd have to be a ****** or the unluckiest person in history to lose EVERY game! I'm gonna assume you mean tournament play since if you really don't care about being competitive then you, almost by definition, don't care if you lose. I would say that if the imbalance between units is ruining casual games then the responsibility for adjusting your gaming experience falls on the players. GW makes a game that can't satisfy everyone "out of the box". Its not possible so don't expect it. At a tournament there are certain expectations and balancing factors that are set and controlled by the tournament organizers. The players generally have little say in the matter. They have to accept what's given and decide whether or not to attend. In a casual game, however, the only people who can adjust their experience and expectations are the players. If two people are playing casual games and one continues to curb stomp the other, then its the responsibility of the players to adjust their game so that it is enjoyable for both of them. If one person refuses to change how they play because they might lose, then that person is selfish and rude. That person needs to learn some empathy. No different than the kid who plays too rough on the playground and refuses to stop when asked. Its unfortunate that GW backed off on this idea, but when AoS was released there was an explicit expectation that players would discuss and work together to "balance" their own game and make sure both players have fun. Even with points, FAQs, balance adjustments, Errata, and the General's Handbook those conversations are still just as important as ever. Also pick-up games with strangers kinda suck. If that's the only way you can ever play AoS...I'm sorry.
  3. Very rounded and blunt if I'm understanding this correctly. No chance of accidental poking.
  4. I've actually included the Untamed Beast and a Darkoath hero or two entirely for fluff reasons. You see, my Beasts army is actually the various livestock found around Chaos Acres. The Darkoath family (mommy and daddy Darkoath, brothers Billy, Timmy, and Otto, little sister Susie, and their dog Oreo) raise herds of gors, ungors, razorgors, and raptoryxs for the farmer's markets of CHAOS!!!๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€ They've even started a Gor rental service. Let's say the land you've conquered for Khorne has pesky weeds, shrubs, aelves, free people, whatever. They'll rent you a brayherd to come out and g-'raze' (๐Ÿ˜‰) that all right into the ground for ya! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ I'll go now. ๐Ÿ˜
  5. I was very excited to see the Seraphon lore in the Tome of Champions Warcry book. They mentioned the Old Ones and Great Plan for starters. I don't get the feeling that the Old Ones will make an appearance. I also don't want to see a continuation of the Great Plan but rather an evolution of it. I like the notion of leylines and astral manipulation powering their magic. From their celestial vantage point, the Slann could be manipulating magical leylines within realms and between realms, perhaps controlling the movement and positioning of the 8 realms themselves in the fight against Chaos. That could make for a narrative event on the scale of the Necroquake!
  6. I know she's 40k and not AoS, but I had to go with Severina Raine. But then I'm biased since I did just paint her up to be my wife's avatar in the game. ๐Ÿ˜Š If I had to pick an AoS model I would pick the Rockgut Troggoths. They are gorgeous sculpts that are practically oozing character and story. I love the little birds and rocks-as-hats and the expression one has looking at a grot he's holding up. You can almost hear the tiny, rusty gears turning and you can sense the inevitable moment when those gears will lock up. Then the Troggoths, curiosity unsatisfied will gulp down that sad, little grot. It's great! ๐Ÿ˜
  7. I just wanted to take a moment to speak to all the Nighthaunt players here on TGA and in the world generally. I have never played Nighthaunt myself however I have recently assembled a small Nighthaunt force for the club at my school. Its a small thing, about 500pts. Just enough for the students to play some small games. I think I speak for everyone when I say I'm sorry. We're sorry. We had no idea. We didn't understand your suffering and hadn't appreciated your strength. All Nighthaunt players have our deepest sympathies for the absolute, unadulterated hell that is assembling Spirit Hosts. 'hugs' PS: After going through that, I think I understand what being punished by Nagash must be like.
  8. Good morning, beasties! So I've playing around with my BoC a lot lately and trying to figure out where to expand the army, particularly Heroes. I'm not focused on being competitive but I enjoy hordes of infantry and really like the ambushing and summoning mechanics in our army. I usually play smaller games (1000-1500pts) and my typical list is something like the following: 1 Beastlord 2 Bray-Shamans 20 Ungor Raiders 20 Bestigors 20-30 Gors A smattering of Chariots or Razorgors Desolating Brayherd Battalion So with that in mind, what Brayherd Heroes do people usually bring? Do I have enough? Beastlord for General or Bray-Shaman? Any suggestions for Command Traits? Are multiple Beastlords worth it? I've been running him with Oracle of the Dark Tongue and the Banshee Blade because I enjoy the combo potential (and he did kill 400pts of Bloodbound by himself that one time! ๐Ÿ‘). Does anyone have any suggestions for alternate Beastlord models? I have the GW one and he's nice enough but my opponents keep confusing him for a particularly short and scrawny Gor. How many Bray-Shamans is too many? I've found that having two works well for their movement buff and I'd like more of that please! I usually have one Bray-Shaman with the Knowing Eye. Does anyone have any other suggestions for useful artifacts? However, their magic seems really hit-or-miss. Their spells are quite short-ranged and they never survive past turn 2-3 unless they are so far back they can't do anything useful. I do enjoy all of our Endless Spells and would like a bit more consistency casting those. Thanks for the ideas and inspiration! PS: I'd like to keep it focused on Brayherd. The Warherd and Thunderscorn models just don't it for me. ๐Ÿฎ
  9. Every once in a while GW just throws a little surprise into White Dwarf that makes me have to get it that month. This is one of those times! Also a good reason to pick up Gotrek!
  10. Excellent advice! If you're in this hobby long enough, you'll end up with a few careless scars so always use a sharp blade! Because we all know that models perform better on the tabletop if you offer them a blood sacrifice during assembly! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ
  11. Oh my god...what if... ...this is the start of AoS End Times!! They're rebooting the game...in reverse! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
  12. Stop it, you guys! Just stop it! ๐Ÿ˜ญ Don't ya see? This is just what GW wants us to do! They're trying to tear us apart just when need to help each other the most! How are we gonna solve the Mystery of the Thalassic Troggoth if we can't work together?!
  13. My solution was to purchase some of the female heads from Victoria miniatures. They are mostly sci-fi themed however they do have some that are just women's heads with no helmets or wargear; just somewhat finer features and longer hair. They were a decent price so I bought 20 of them and added them to my Freeguild Guard on the assumption that they're militia and not all of them have helmets. Also its hard to tell a man from a women when they're wearing puffy shirts and bresatplates so the head was all the needed changing in my opinion. https://victoriaminiatures.com/collections/female-squads-and-bits/products/bald-female-heads-x12 PS: That's for 5 heads with hair...not sure why it says "bald female heads x 12". ๐Ÿ˜› PPS: They do have bald lady heads though!
  14. You already know the solution to this problem... ...its the same solution we have to every problem... ...murder them... ...and eat them...* ๐Ÿฎ *the Ironguts, not the Ogor player
  15. Oooh! Its limited edition! Keepin' it classy! As for me, I remember buying my first 40k minis in Feb, 2003. I was 22 at the time and a senior in college. A friend of mine was waxing nostalgic about playing Warhammer in high school and he wanted to start again. I went with Tyranids, he got Space Marines, and another friend played Eldar. We played 5 games before we graduated and moved away...๐Ÿ˜ฅ Anyway it would be another decade of on-again, off-again Warhammer before I found a stable group to play 40k. I played a bit of Fantasy in 8th edition but once AoS dropped, I was completely hooked. Yes, I loved AoS when the game was released and really enjoy Open Play to this day. I'm one of thoooose people... ๐Ÿ˜‰
