  1. From what I heard, because the paint is transparent, they act as a filter rather than a solid overlay colour when airbrushed. I'm guessing they give a similar effect to airbrushing an ink over a colour. Looking forward to having a play with this when they're released as there still isn't a good replacement for the old FW clear red paint!
  2. There are some models that simply double up as an un-named version (Khorgus Khul is another one). They're going to be fine as there isn't a specific model for the un-named version. What wouldn't be is plonking Nagash on the table and telling your opponent it's Arkhan the Black on a bad day.
  3. Would agree we're going to have to wait for the FAQ on this - or if one of the rules writers appear on Twitch ask then. There doesn't seem to be one hard and fast rule - you can use the Khorne Beastman battalion within a Khorne army for example. I actually looked at the Deathmarch battalion last night and it's simply got "Death" above it - muddying the waters even further! 🤣
  4. I'd not even thought about something like that! I was tempted to pick up a box of Dreadblades and even more tempted now... I think the biggest challenge is going to be running out of available hero slots - you're going to want some "utility" heroes (spirit torment, guardian of souls), banshees for getting the most out of the bravery debuffs, dreadblade(s) and then something like Reiknor...
  5. I give it less than a day 😉 The 'Eavy Metal guys have found the new paints to be fantastic for glazing over metallics for the shadows - apparently they're much easier to control than a regular thinned down paint. You also get some quite funky results airbrushing them too.
  6. The two nighthaunt paints were practise attempts at the new contrast range. It has a different base acrylic medium with more flow than the normal one. What this means is if you add in one of the existing range (with the regular base acrylic medium) you'll stop the contrast medium flowing in the same say (in essence just making a very strong wash). The way you'd increase the gradient would be to add in more of the contrast medium - so making it more transparent so more of the undercoat colour shows through.
  7. As with all this type of mechanic you "setup" the unit in the underworlds rather than on the table. So 6 units in your list will always equal that number of drops.
  8. All we got told was "June" at WHFest. Would agree with @CitizenX that pre-order this weekend or next is the most likely - there's a fairly hefty article in White Dwarf the next issue which is due middle of next month, so it wouldn't surprise me to see it out in time for that. Could even be a 2 week pre-order window which they've done with the last couple of major releases. There's also a new black crackle paint due out too as that's used in the article (and apparently some of the FW airbrush paints being brought back as part of the main Citadel range).
  9. I'd also add in one point of view I generally have when playing an army I've never played before: "Not convinced I'm going to win this, but I'm going to come away with knowing how to tackle it next time"
  10. @SleeperAgent & @Qrow - cool that you're both thinking of Harridans, they're a lovely looking unit (and sorely tempted myself). I do think there's some potentially good shenanigans to be had with the bravery debuff mechanics. Really looking forward to seeing how the new Legion works in practice - I'm a big fan of gravesites in my Grand Host army (really works for my playstyle), and have a few bits and bobs I picked up when the Nighthaunt range originally dropped (chainghast box, myrmourn and a few bits from the original box set). Currently contemplating building everything and using the new contrast paints thinned down like Tyler Mengel does with his Nighthaunt.
  11. The ones I've got are the 3d printed ones by Winterdyne. They paint up to match your army and have a hole in the bottom so that the magnets in the base still allow me to transport them on a baking sheet/metal case. However Mini Mag Tray have just started producing a slimline metal one - which I'm currently tempted with for my next project. They're actually cheaper than the 3d printed ones, but more expensive than the mdf ones. The thing that appeals is that I don't actually need to paint them up so once they've been bought I'll never need to buy new ones, plus the cloud formation ones are practically invisible on the table - and significantly easier to move your models off when the time comes.
  12. So, out of curiosity, what are people thinking they're going to be running in their Legion of Grief armies? I know this depends fairly heavily on the answer to the battalion question (which my own feeling will be yes). I may have picked up a couple of boxes of Bladegheist...
  13. I'd say that it would depend entirely on if you'd done any conversion work. The reason for wysiwyg is that it's written with your opponent in mind. In the heat of a game it's really easy to forget what special conditions your opponent has told you - heck it's easy to forget what model is your opponent's general! If your model looks like an Exalted Deathbringer then that's what you should be running it as. At a minimum to run the Exalted Deathbringer with Ruinous Axe as a Slaughterpriest, you would need to remove the skullgouger and do a head swap - as both of these items clearly identify it as the original unit.
  14. Would agree with @Sleboda on this. Is it clearly identifiable as a unit armed with X when you put it on the table? If so, then you're good to go! As an example, my 40 person unit of spear armed skeletons has the champion armed with a sword - because it looks cool (and is exactly how GW models it too). It is however very obvious that the unit has spears rather than swords. It also helps identify the champion (who also is the only person with a helmet and armour).
  15. Interesting that you are both saying that as I was thinking similar from a painting perspective the other day (although we do have painting courses available which sort of cover this). I do think that time is one of the biggest factors, video or article editing requires a huge commitment of it which most of us would rather invest in hobby. One of the other things I feel contributes is that some people aren't natural teachers / public speakers. At work we've done a number of training videos and got a number of people in to present them. The person who was the most engaging was the chap who was formally a teacher at a secondary school, even though he probably knew the least about the subjects, he was hugely more interesting to watch.
