    AoS 2 - Nighthaunt Discussion

    Welcome to the new Nighthaunt discussion thread! Following on from the release of the second edition Age of Sigmar rules, this thread is the main thread to talk about all things related the Nighthaunt allegiance of Grand Alliance Death. For new players the Nighthaunt are legions of ethereal ghosts and souls who do Nagash' bidding, many being punished for heinous crimes committed in life. We do encourage people to create your own threads talking about your armies, home written fan fiction, conversions and paint jobs (not everybody frequents the painting forum), but this thread will be the central place to talk tactics, list building and general conversation and similar. You all know the drill! For easy reference, here's a link to the old Let's Chat thread, it still contains lots of gems of information! http://www.tga.community/forums/topic/11436-lets-chat-nighthaunt/

  3. Nagash truly believes that he can rule supreme, arrogant is probably the best way of describing him as it's his nature to be like that. Although he's been defeated in the past, he's never been destroyed - to a certain extent nobody really knows if you could destroy him. Not sure if you've read Soul Wars yet, but there's one scene early on where the Chaos Gods laugh at him - until they realise what he's actually been doing and realise that they've basically ignored a huge threat, it's only down to the Horned Rat that the plan doesn't succeed. If it had succeeded there would have been nothing they could have done.

    Calling All Women!

    One opinion I've got on Bloodbound is based on how the Bloodbound grow their numbers. Basically they attack a village/tribe and offer the captives the option to drink the blood of their fellow captives and join or be killed. I've always looked at it and thought that the women of the tribe would have chosen not to become cannibals (on the whole at least). Vampire wise I think it's more that the model range is really limited and pretty old. At one point there were more female vampires, but the range was reduced a few months back. Ultimately I do think that we're going to get a better balance of them in the future.
  5. In a straight punch-up it'd be Khorne everytime. As @Nin Win says, ultimately Nagash is trying to kill the Chaos Gods by being clever and removing everything that fuels them. Ultimately Nagash believes he'll win as he can't die - if he does then he simply reforms over a number of decades as he is the God of Death. The Necroquake was to try and re-balance things as there are too many players stealing souls, what he managed to do was to "free up" all of the souls that hadn't made their way to Shyish.

    Question Regarding Pile In

    My own interpretation is that you wouldn't get that +1 if the model piles in as pile in is a type of move: If the battalion ability stated "if the model had not made a normal or charge move" then you would get it.

    Calling All Women!

    Just to nudge this back towards the original question. It's not about the percentage of female models in the ranges - it's more that the ranges that appeal to blokes don't necessarily appeal to women. Now part of that may be/is because women aren't represented that well in miniature ranges, but equally it could be that heavy armoured dwarves/red fleshed daemons don't appeal.

    Calling All Women!

    I think we're already starting to see a shift in product ranges to make different model ranges more appealing to a cross-section of gamers. I was up at WHW this weekend and would say that the Kill Team Open Day and Tournament had more ladies in attendance than I've seen at other similar events, which I felt was really positive. I know from my own group of female friends that many of them aren't really interested in playing an army vs army style games. The prospect of assembling and painting hundreds of models just doesn't appeal. Some prefer a co-op game rather than PvP and certainly tagging the word "competitive" to a game system isn't going to help encourage play. Equally some simply paint the models that appeal - quite often animal based ones. AoS certainly has a really fine juggling act - you have to balance the whole partially clad stereotype with practicality and appeal. If we're honest, bare chested Khorne crazed barbarians are almost as impractical as bikini-clad aelves, but both have a space within our background. What I'd personally love to see is some new factions coming along rather than trying to "correct" other ones. One real positive that I see is that we're finally seeing skulls being put onto less models for the sake of it! If I had a pound everytime somebody I know went "Why is there a skull there" I'd be a rich bloke!

    Priming

    Ultimately it depends on what you're planning on using your models for. For lightweight gaming then no-primer or using a brush on one will be fine. If you do heavy priming then you're not going to beat the adherence of a GW spray can (these are "etching sprays", meaning that they slightly melt the plastic to achieve a strong bond). Completely agree on spraying indoors - I'd never suggest that unless you have a walk in spray booth One thing I tend to do during the winter months (when it's warm enough and not too humid) is to stand in the entrance of my garage (with the door open) and spray outwards.

Following on from the release of the second edition Age of Sigmar rules, this thread is the main thread to talk about all things related the Flesh Eater Courts allegiance of Grand Alliance Death.

    Big Model Fatigue

    Have a look at coloured spray cans and masking off areas with (proper modelling) masking tape. It's possible to get some amazing results using cans, the first Forge World Warlord Titan was painted entirely using spray cans in a weekend by Mark Bedford - but he is also a magician.

    Spray Can Storage

    Hi All, I'm currently on the hunt for some kind of wall mounted spraycan storage that doesn't cost me a second-mortgage... Over the years I've amassed quite a collection of spray/rattlecans (probably around 18 different colours - plus spares) and looking for a better way of storing them indoors that isn't just a random collection on the floor. Looking on the likes of Amazon, all of the options are super expensive - to the point where you're almost paying the same amount per "slot" as you would for a new can. So, over to you for thoughts and suggestions

    Spray Can Storage

    My plan is to fix something onto the wall under my hobby desk, as shelf space is at a massive premium (already full with my mountains of shame). I've also found in the past that some colours can go a bit funky if stored horizontally if they're low on paint (white comes to mind) - could have just been the can, but no point in risking it

    Battletomes, a bygone era?

    I'll be honest and say I did start off with a "what have we got here" when reading the title. However I think it's a pretty interesting idea to remove the non-static bits such as warscrolls outside the battletome (leaving key bits like spell lores, allegiance abilities & artefacts in the Battletome). I'd actually go one step further and say it could include paper copies of the warscrolls with the battletome - that way you've got "everything", but with a disclaimer that these were correct at time of print and subject to change. I actually think it could be a really positive move and make people a lot more likely to pick up the limited edition copies of the books too - I don't mind spending another £20 for a plush book that I know I won't have to throw in a bag and get scuffed to bits.
  17. +++MOD HAT+++ I've just hidden a number of comments that weren't contributing towards what this discussion is about. @Orsino please refrain from bringing the "GW want to make money" discussion into topics that are clearly talking about background Lore.

    Spray Can Storage

    Thanks both! Thanks - and thanks for making yourself late too! May have to investigate this idea - could always cut them at an angle too so they're not laid down... That's also a great idea (and less work). I'll have to investigate.

    The Rumour Thread

    I honestly cannot see this being anything but AoS Gut feeling is something destruction related - the toof on it and rough finish suggests Bonesplitters
  20. As a completely random aside, did you know that GW tried to put out the feelers for help? There was a "Save our Squats" snippet in Sci-fi and Fantasy Magazine asking for ideas on how to revitalise the Squats and make them work for the changing background.

    100% gw model for GW tournaments.

    From what you've just listed the only thing I'd personally be checking is the fish. Everything else is either your own design or from non-miniature companies

    100% gw model for GW tournaments.

    There's always been a rule of "only GW at GW events/locations" for as long as I can remember to stop people bringing third party miniatures to events and allows GW to show painted armies within White Dwarf and on social media. It's certainly been in place all the time AoS has been about (I just looked on one of the Throne of Skull packs from 2016). I think relaxing the rules on bases was a brilliant move on their part though.

    100% gw model for GW tournaments.

    Each tournament is going to be different. More recently Games Workshop events have stated that the bases don't have to be GW, however that wasn't always the case. Small bits (e.g. leaves, static grass) have never been an issue - you can't prove where they come from and often there is no GW alternative. My suggestion would be to check the event pack and if it's not 100% clear send a picture to the tournament organiser.
  24. I think there is a certain amount of what you say, where there's a cyclical trend where the popular things get more popular. Within our hobby, the more people there are collecting one army, the more people there will also be "shouting" about that army - we've all seen it, in a group of 100 you're going to get one or two more vocal people. The more noise a group makes, the more "popular" that group appears to be. What we do have too are a number of curve balls that can be thrown. Some armies simply gain popularity against the odds, somebody may create a particularly fantastic conversion or paint job of a less popular army that inspires people to collect something similar. You've also got the sculptors themselves, love it or hate it, the 40k Taurox was created as a lunchtime project and ultimately directed the Tempestus Scion army. One thing that I think muddies the water when we come to analyse this subject is that the lead times on new models coming out is also huge (on average 2 ~ 3 years), we can't actually gauge how GW reacts. If you think about it, that means that the Beasts of Chaos release we've just had was done around the time the first generals handbook was released...

    The Rumour Thread

    Right, moving away from GW's translation skills... We've some more information on Nightvault up on the community site. The more I see those Chainrasp the more impressed I am! Looking forward to seeing the AoS warscroll for these - regardless the Briar Queen will make an amazing hero in a Death army.
