  1. Forbidden Power: meh Warcry: YES YES YES YES I saving my money for this summer, totally in love with those "darkoath" dudes
  2. Wow, I like the sound of that As long as those surprises are MORE DINOSAURS I'm happy
  3. I NEED IT NOW I could love some new minis since we still have heroes in finecast but I'm fine with this GW, you can take my money
  4. There are even some minis made of metal (Acolytes)
  5. I could like to see new Seraphon using the little what we saw in Malign Portents Some new unit of Saurus, or even new dinos, that army has the potential to go full feral, something something space tecnomagic lizard things or even lizard-dragon-dinosaurs with Dracothion's help. (I know that it's just one story in Malign Portents but I really want new Seraphon some day)
  6. I was building a Dracothian list with the Eternal Starhost to protect my Slann and act as a good anvil. What should I put instead? I really like the Guard with that juicy bufs from Warden+Batallion Maybe put the Guard in 10man units instead? Krox? More dinosaurs? (My local meta isn't that competitive btw, I don't need super optimal builds)
  7. And... tha's why I started playing without Kroaknado, we all could see that FaQ coming. Are Guard and Knights worth it in MSU?
  8. I use it, I really like that giant lizard, and being able to summond it is very cool but my local metal is not competitive at all so take it with a grain of salt.
  9. Yes, but making a new skirmish book with points for every unit that exist right now could help a lot to that format (there is always some people that don't like things if you can find it on official books) But I can see GW "droping" Skirmish in favor of some "kill team like" for AoS if they think it coul sell well... or maybe they can call Skirmish 2nd ed to that "aos kill team". One just need a look to XWing sales some years ago to see that little and fast games can be very profitable and those are great to bring new players too. The only problem that I could see is that "Kill Team AoS"/Skirmish could compete with Shadespire and that's why GW could drop Skirmish for a while but anything prevents you for playing anyway, it just use AoS rules with some little twist like the units with 1 model and all of that.
  10. That version exist, it's called AoS Skirmish. It's a little book but it does his job untill they make a 2nd ed of it (I hope they make it soon, we need points for the new armies and some units that weren't included in the original) There was even boxes for that, at +- 45 € with enough minis for a warband (but it's seems that they discontinued those, sad) so the problem now is that if you want to start and (for example) have 2-3 liberators you have to buy the 10 minis box. But yes, there is a version/game mode of it, you usually start with 1 hero and 1-2 dudes. Reading this topic I got the idea of starting a little league in my group using 500 (house rulling only 1 battleline)/1000 points (maybe 750) Since we all are used to play without points or with 2k points it's interesting to see how we build our lists in such a little games, great times!
  11. 2k points is fine, if you make the "standard" something like 2500 or 3000 it could affect balance and new players (that's just what happend with WFB, we DON'T want to follow that path, trust me) You may say that 500 or 1000 points more will help you with having more things in your list but limitations are a good thing, having a limit amount of points makes you do decisions in list building and 3000 or 2500 could be too loose and make us just have a lot of CPs or batallions, etc. And, as other said already, if the "standard" is bigger, that could make it harder for the new players. Ofc, you can say that the "standard" doesn't force you to play at that points but it makes harder to find games at others levels of points. TL;DR 2k is fine, having limits for list build helps balance, prevents too many models on the table outside horde armies and CP/batallions spam and the bigger you make the "standard", the harder you make it for new players
  12. Just remmember that you don't have to like the game itself, you can be in for the paint/collect part of the hobby and that is totally fine (it's a very varied hobby, some like to paint, other to play and even the play group is divided in people who like listbuilding and others that just ike to throw dices and move miniatures) Try to learn one army first, do little games with incator + 1 unit vs 1 NH hero + 1 NH unit and add more units once you get what does those that you use. I won't try to make it look pretty, there are a lot of rules and even the people who have been playing years have to look at the books sometimes while playing, all we can do is help you in your way to learn the rules/warscrolls. Just do little steps, don't mind if you get something wrong sometimes, it's part of the hobby and we all are always learning.
  13. While AoS is not my first game, a lot of players from my local group have AoS as their first tabletop game, so I usually see people with this kind of problem. What we usually do is make them start with little games (skirmish size is a good way to start) only with core rules and warscrolls (battletomes, lores of magic, traits, artifacts, batallions and all of that can be added later, when the player is fine with his/hers units) Other little trick is make a list with your unit's abillities and when those abillities triggers (SW Destiny comes with a card explaining what you can do and when in your turn, I used that as a base for AoS) You can use list building to learn your warscrolls too. For Example, one of our players started with Seraphon. He first choose a hero that he liked (Skink Starpriest) and look at his warscroll to look what it does and what units that little precious lizard can help. "Oh, he can buff claws and fangs attacks" that made him buy some saurus and we started to play some skirmish. That's a little example but buying the saurus made him remmember the Skink abillity (sometimes ofc) and he is not the first that starts with some hero + battleline and ends up with 2k points months/years later that he know perfectly how it works thanks to how he collected them. Start with little games, collect the army by reading your warscrolls abillities (an looking for units that can help or be helped by that) and having a little list with what does what and when it does that can help a lot And remmember that even when you have been playing more than 10 years you will still have to look for things in the rules and warscrolls, it's totally normal.
  14. Since the last MP story I started looking for info about the Skaven and while I have the old skaven vs HE box from WFB I'm not a very fan of those models but I ended up liking Skyre a lot so once I have paint all my new stormcast and IJ I plan to start with Skyre. I'm looking to make a 2k pts list but not really competitive (my local group is very friendly, we usually play narrative ) and I really like the doomwheel model, how is that unit in the tabletop? I'm thinking of usin Stormfiends, Arch-warlock and some cannons (maybe use the mortar since it came with the old WFB box)
