  1. Love the scenery and the fluff! Is the tower scratch built?
  2. At some point I’d like to do 4 small warbands (underworlds sized) for each of the chaos gods, but played againt type ; -Khorne would be some aristocratic duellists with rapiers or daggers. They could be based on eldar harlequins for instance -Nurgle would be some plague doctors type figures, very clean and uncorrupted. Maybe syringes and potions to represent them inoculating their victims with various plagues -Tzeentch would be fat, stupid warriors with heavy hammers and the like. Muted grey tones, maybe bird heads in naturalistic colors. Rusted pieces of armor, dented weapons. -Slaanesh would be muscular mutants, gone completely mad from excess, with spikes driven through their flesh, eyes gouged, howling mouths and the like, hardcore mutilations and crude tattoos Typing this out I realize I still have to perfect the concepts, I’m very open to suggestions
  3. My dream / next army project would be a Grand Alliance Chaos army that’s built as a mirror of free peoples. Basically a medieval dark fantasy army with demigryph knights, spearmen, various mutants. Not over the top slaves to darkness but people who worship chaos as a traditional pantheon, have castles, towns etc.
  4. @Dr Ben those are some great ideas! Looking at mental disorders could be a very useful source of information, I’ll be sure to dig around. I agree that the ability to have your own small setting separate from the main plot is one of the great things about AoS. If you want to check out the thread I started on the narrative forum, I wrote a short story exploring the ideas discussed here. TL;DR is that some of the stormcast are starting to see the humanity loss from reforging as a blessing instead of a curse. The idea that they would report their delusional version of what is going on to azyr is really good, I think I’ll include it in the plot.
  5. Yeah I wouldn’t expect anything like a corrupt stormcast faction, but maybe something akin to the legion of the damned in 40k - a rogue stormhost that pops out of nowhere and kills everyone in pursuit of a supreme goal. Maybe just some optional rules, maybe a special unit... I don’t know what would happen to stormcast who actually reject Sigmar since he’s the one reforging them and they’re actually imbued with his very essence. But it could be interesting to see how fallen stormcast embody Sigmar’s darker side. Not the heavenly king that builds cities and protects free people, but the eternal being who sees the lives of mortals as a small cost in his war against the dark gods.
  6. @Gaz Taylor thank you. They definitely have been hinting at the potential downfall of stormcasts for a while. I’d expect it to affect the various stormhosts differently, unless they end up doing some kind of primaris-style reboot, with new re-reforged stormcast better protected againt degenerescence. I’ve started a thread on the narrative forum about my stormhost, with a short story that touches on this reforging problem, if you’re interested in checking it out!
  7. Hey everyone! I’m starting this thread to share the small narrative campaign I’m working on, mostly based on the Storm Strike boxset. I’ll post more about the setting and the models later but let me start by introducing my warband’s leader, Knight Incantor Carron, from the Order of the Crimson Sky : I have written a (very) short story to present him, here it is if anyone wants to read it. If you have any criticism on the writing or content please let me know, I need feedback and english isn't my native language Thank you for reading.
  8. Hmmm interesting. Yeah that’s good to know, I can picture a stormhost that has been mostly wiped out on the front lines, but because there’s such a delay to reforging the survivors are stuck in low numbers, trying to impose order on regions that have low strategic value in the big picture...
  9. Thanks, I’ve looked them up and they seem to fit the bill. I’m doing my own stormhost but they show that there’s a place in the lore for radical stormcast. I guess the stormhosts are pretty autonomous!
  10. I’ve started the assembly / basing step of my gryphounds. I was able to do some headswaps but if I want to do a bigger pack I may have to convert some to avoid having too many duplicates, as the box already has only 3 different poses. Can’t wait to be done with the prep work and slap some paint on those good boys!
  11. This is a call to lore enthusiasts! I am designing a small narrative campaign based around stormcast vs nighthaunt (for now) I have a good idea of the setting : secluded moutains somewhere in the realm of fire. The chaos armies have been mostly driven back and Sigmar’s main forces moved on. A small contingent of stormcast and freeguild were left there to eradicate the last traces of chaos. But the endless circle of war and reforging has radicalized the stormcast and they see chaos everywhere. They have turned into an inquisition of sorts, executng people for te slightest misstep. The repression has taken a heavy toll on the local population, and their dead have started to rise... So here’s my question (finally) : How independant are stormcasts? I know some of them get pretty strange after a couple reforgings, but would they be allowed to keep coming back to a place they are oppressing? Wouldn’t the guys in azyr lock them up or give them different orders after a while? Or are the stormhosts able to pursue their goals as they see fit, without interference from a higher authority? Maybe it would be better for this story if some kind of magical interference kept them stuck without access to reforging, their numbers dwindling, slowly going mad? What’s your take on it? I’m sorry if the question isn’t completely clear, if you have any question or feedback about what I’ve written please say it I’m also interested in any bit of lore that you feel is interesting / relevant for this setting
  12. I don’t know too much about stormcast, thanks for the tip! I’m not sure if this mini would fit the style I’m going for, but I could convert it or make a count-as model... the lore is perfect!
  13. Thank you. I found the knight incantor a bit too warcraft-y for my tastes so I made him a bit more direct. I am writing a small campaign in a setting where the stormcast are basically the Inquisition, so I want to give them that zealot warrior feel...
  14. Small update! Thanks to the painting contract I’ve painted up my gryphound and a converted knigh incantor. Those are some quick instagram pics, I’ll post some better ones next week. The next thing for this month is 6 more gryphounds, really fun to paint! And then probably free peoples / devoted of sigmar. I’m done with stormcasts for a while I think! as always, c&c welcome
  15. I just managed to finish my march goal of 1 knight incantor and gryphound. I really liked painting the beast, and that’s good because I bought a box and have another 6 of them. I really like the idea of a hunting pack of gryphounds. so for this month I pledge : -build, base and paint 6 gryphounds. And as a stretch I’ll add these goals : -texture and paint my 4*3 board so I can start playing some real games -build and base my 30 or so brettonian men at arms, able to assist and worship my small stormcast warband 🤓
