    The Rumour Thread

    I do like the addition of points but other than tt I agree with everything you said. It’s like surprise winky face another old character comes back. It’s so overdone I’m surprised they haven’t all come back. Meanwhile new and important characters for factions like Brok Grungson or Volturnos have no books on them yet so no important lore.

    Well it must have been working well since AoS grew on its own without fantasy fans until they decided to come back and co-opt it acting like they’ve always loved it.

    I keep telling people old armies aren’t safe investments. Most likely won’t make the cut into Sigmar. GW clearly wants to sell AoS models in the game AoS and all the better selling models have tended to be AoS specific. The writing is on the wall and if you get into an old fantasy army without a battletomb your taking a big risk. It’s not surprising in the least really as painful as it might be for fantasy fans.

    Well with Greenskins gone I think it’s chopping block time for many older factions. Though a few might get updates like DoK or moon clan. We knew GW wouldn’t keep them around forever.

    I dunno two chaos armies in one year? Seems a bit much. Also so far we need to expect mandatory Stormcast as well since its happened every year. Slaanesh is getting stuff then grots, then Stormcast and finally one more army for the year. I highly doubt it will be darkoath. Its kind of a wild care faction and I suspect we might begin hearing chatter after we get grots released.

    The AoS RPG

    Not as familiar with fantasy but I’ll take your word. Wrath and glory though seems to have split the 40k community and I know I don’t like it.

    None of the new non FFG rpg's have been all that well received. Here's hoping Sigmar does something different and stands out.

    AoS 2 - Kharadron Overlords Discussion

    Considering you can count on one hands the amount of times we've been in the top 50 in a year I don't think they have anything to be afraid of buffing. You mat get just past two hands if you count to top 100. To say our army is terrible is a joke at this point and its scaring people away from the army. I don't think its hard at all I just think there are other reasons why and one of the biggest ones was the ITC people don't like the KO so naturally they made them bad and kept making them bad continuously for every update. It's ridiculous. KO have always had one good build and terrible internal balance. The only time KO could ever be called OP was when they first launched and they had super powerful thunderers which were nerfed correctly and then kept getting nerfs more and more nerfs. Also to truly make KO more viable in builds they need to give us more access to melee and buff and debuff units then. Let us play around with making different units battle line with unique hero's. Our army is so pigeonholed currently and a new model update can't come fast enough to give us more options.

    AoS 2 - Kharadron Overlords Discussion

    Right now they are collecting feedback on AoS facebook about points changes you would like to see in generals handbook. I was worried we would get drowned out but its pretty obvious we're an army in dire need going by all the comments about our army. Still it always helps to leave feedback and opinions.

    Help Kharadron we’re in dire need of more than points reductions.

    This will be fun. Everyone will think their favourite armies are the best and need to b improved.

    Can't have said it better myself they look so boring and square and like low resolution models. Like they were designed in the ancient days somehow before even old fantasy models.

    While I personally didn’t find or expect much to wow me for AoS Blackstone blew me away.
  14. I've been saying for a long time destruction is too one dimensional of a faction. Every single faction is some minor variety of gork and mork and orks. Death you can have all sorts of undead and different after life concepts. Chaos same thing there is a lot of room for interpretation of following g and spreading chaos. Order is even more free than these. Destruction is so narrowly focused on Gork and Mork is has no room for any other types of destruction. There is no room for mindless strange automatons who are set to destroy stuff or strange cthulhu esque factions of mysterious horror destruction. No room for quasi ordered forms of destruction like imagine if giants were smart in the setting and had a strong city but believed they and their god gork and mork were the only right way so they seek to destroy lesser races and put themselves on top of the heap. You can't do any of these right now under the current destruction god because gork and mork is a bad god for this sort of setting. He was a joke god that worked well in fantasy but its clear he isn't working here he should be a major deity but demoted from THE god of destruction so something far more encompassing can take his place. That's how you fix destruction and no one will care until massive and I mean huge swathes of lore update happen to destruction because most people find them way too limited. I say this with pain as I even have BCR and Ironjaws models even if the lore and fluff is kinda of samey. I want to eventually see much more interesting variety fall into the destruction GA. That or rename it to Hordes of Destruction or something since its such a misnomer.
  15. Idoneth are the only things interesting to me. I’m remarkably picky with armies because I need to adore and love them so much to put the work into them. I usually expand them into huge collections. No one here plays board games so those are out unless the value is great and I can split it. 40k has been boring for 2 years orks the only exception recently. I don’t care for the new 40k lore and it feels my new deathwatch are about to be squatted. Kill team is too simple for me and they made Rogue Traders ig in space which was very underwhelming given what they are like in the lore. Doubt next year will wow me much either barring an unexpected sepharon or skaven update or some cool new AoS army like undead pirates. 40k is getting 2 more legions + sisters so no excitement there. Feels like all my 40k armies are being squatted with no support except rules.
