  1. In my mind we need a more consistent ruleset around terrain, probably themed around two elements: Point Costs for Army Terrain: Giving some armies free abilities for paid models crosses a line in my view that would be easily remedied by treating them like point-costed fortifications. Armies like Sylvaneth could have their 'compulsory' terrain point costed but reductions in their units for example that rely on them. Generic Terrain Rules: Maybe this is my own experience, but rules for basic terrain stuff like chest-high walls/fences should be more streamlined and have consistent rulesets. Not sure if it's just my gaming group, but noone uses that 'Arcane' terrain ruleset. Other than that, I'll just harp on the common ones, hopefully a heightened focus on rules balance across books.
  2. Hail Adventurers! I'm here to share an Age of Sigmar RPG actual play podcast that we've been working on ever since July 2018, and recently updated with the awesome new Age of Sigmar: Soulbound ruleset that came out this year! If you're interested in learning the rules, we walk you through how to play, examples of mechanics, combat, etc throughout our campaign. We edit down the typical play sessions to one-hour condensed episodes so you don't need to wait for people to make their turns, look up rules, etc. We are also adding in more music and sound effects as the podcast grows! I am the DM for our current campaign and having a blast doing it! Homepage: www.goquestward.com Listen on iTunes Listen on Spotify We post new episodes bi-weekly for now, I'd love to go weekly if we can continue to grow at a good pace. Also looking for reviews and feedback! If you can help us out with an iTunes review that helps us get exposure to get more folks into the hobby, and if you have feedback or want to talk about episodes, I'd love to chat here!
  3. I think Seraphon gives you some fun sizes to play along with. Big Guys in the Dinosaurs, Kroxigors, and small guys in the Skinks & Chameleon skinks. Heck, even the saurus look small when up next to the dinos!
  4. A few days before LVO we had a rumour about Sons of Behemat being included in a dual starter with Seraphon. Is that still a thing? Or was that people connecting dots that weren't there? If it still exists, I have heightened hopes for new Lizard sculpts.
  5. What a whirlwind few days, from seeing the leaked Seraphon cards, to hearing the rumours of a dual Seraphon/Giant box, to finally the LVO reveal. I know there's a lot of scrutiny towards negativity, but take this at face value: this is pretty brutal for Seraphon. This is the range that has been waiting the longest for support, as it's the range with the oldest models, last to get a rules supplement, and has essential units still in resin. Getting the Battletome and Terrain is below even my baseline expectations of the Hero-in-a-double-box concept. Curious what the decision making is there since Seraphon have a pretty dedicated userbase. Lack of interest from GW? Sales numbers? The worst part is being the last tome out of the gate usually implies that you'll be near the last tome for 3.0 too, so it's going to be about a decade between new model updates. Anyone got a silver lining for me that I'm not seeing? I'm a sad dino atm.
  6. Oh man I am so cautiously optimistic for Seraphon. I am hoping we're a Gloomspite Treatment rather than a tome and model treatment. But no matter what happens it's exciting.
  7. I love it when they reinvent older kits so I'm all for updating old lines. I'd love to see my Skaven friend get those plastic acolytes and weapon teams he's always wanted. Or my Free People's buddy get updated human models that don't look like Sloth from Goonies in full pajamas.
  8. I'm inclined to agree (I think). Eshin's models are ancient, with some being the actual Warband for Mordheim! I wouldn't be surprised if we get an Eshin focus in the next release. It's a playstyle that isn't really covered by any of the other armies and would be pretty cheap for GW to support. A single Gutter/Night Runners Box would update those models and anything else would just expand the playstyle. Personally I feel like one unified Weapons Team box would clean up their range majorly, and I think thats another strong contender. There are some rumours around Siege being the next "Psychic Awakening" for AoS, so giving them the box then makes sense too. Maybe with a standalone release for the Bombardier?
  9. It's funny you mention that because the only model they did release, the Excelsior Warpriest, was inexplicably banished from matched play. It's a shame too, it was a cool new sculpt aesthetic.
  10. I agree with the above suggestion for Psychic Awakening - updating all armies a little bit is healthier for the game than overhauling each in a long chain. As well - I suspect we'll see some lateral movements within Stormcast Eternals - namely the splintering of a Stormhost into their own Battletome ala Dark Angels/Blood Angels/Space Wolves/etc. It makes sense given the trajectory of focus being heaped upon the golden boys, and GW can't possibly push a unified tome much farther without it being a total soupstorm. If we see a standalone Battletome with exclusive units for say, Hallowed Knights or something, I wouldn't be surprised. Overall though, I hope we don't get pushed into AoS 3.0 right now, because the game is the healthiest it's ever been. Maybe V2 codexes like Chaos Space Marines got for Legion of Nagash, Nurgle, etc.
  11. I actually feel like LoN is the one that needs the update. Fixing the Nighthaunt abuses in that tome would make it easier to give Nighthaunt appropriate point values.
  12. Legion of Grief would like a word with you. Any army that can resurrect a unit of 30 Bladegheists for 1 CP is doing just fine...
  13. Very cool idea. I'll give some recommendations based on my armies: Seraphon: Bastiladon - While not as iconic or essential as the slann, is sums up the army quite nicely: dinos riding dinos shooting laser beams. It has a really distinctive shape and style, with the turtle shell, howdah riders, and artillery piece to boot. Runner Up: Carnosaur. Disciples of Tzeentch: Lord of Change - The greater daemons really do sum up their alignment well, and the Lord of Change is an embodiment of Tzeentch's terrifying magical prowess. Runner Up - Gaunt Summoner.
  14. I agree with a few previous comments, a lot of these names written feel like they weren't spoken out loud before writing. How many times have we seen Kharadron Overlords spelled wrong before? Khadaron, Kharadon, etc. I event had to look at the webstore to remember how it was spelled out. Or I could just use KO.
  15. I'd love a plastic Curseling, but we need a plastic Fatemaster first - that model is absolutely ancient. I would love to see the Fatemaster get updated to be a model worth taking and synergize with whatever comes out of this book along with the Ogroid, Kairic Acolytes, etc.
