  1. Hello. Sorry for the late arrival. I got the main box when it came out. But with noone i kbew playing it stayed in the cupboard. Now though a lot of guys from the clib i go to are getting into it. So out of the cupboard it came again. AoS is looking so appealing at the moment. Might have bought a few box sets to get the paint flowing. I am really looking for some advice on a starting list. Not 100% competitive but something I can enjoy and get a feel for where to go next. Have painted a few bits up which I have really enjoyed. But need some direction and advice. Probably going to start at 1000pts.
  2. So the painting could continues slowly as I do all kinds of bits and pieces at home. I think I have decided on green for the beasts themselves but I will have to see as I lighten up the skin. Slow going and I think I need a new light set up.
  3. Quick question regarding the models in the stormcast start collecting box... Are they the full sprues from the other boxes but within this one box or are they "easy assemble" versions? The reason for asking is because I would like to try the upgrade kits to turn my chamber into the celestial warbringers but am not sure if the shoulder pads/shields etc for the start collecting models are able to swapped for the items in the upgrade kits.
  4. I may or may not do a full write up, however for those people asking these are my two winning lists for the FacehammerGT: I used the Skyborne Slayers 3 out of the 5 Games (mainly because I let @The Lost Lighthouse (Gary) choose my list Game 1) When I used the slayers the Two Dracoth riders took the extra -1 Rend and the General (Celestant on Foot) Reckless (re-roll charges within' 10") Warrior Brotherhood Had the Lord on Dracoth as the General; Generally took Reckless to give a second unit dropping down a fair shot at a 9" charge and the extra -1 Rend. The Azyros would take either something to make him more fighty or more survivable. Feel free to ask questions! Cheers Sam

  7. The first year of AoS was pretty slow for me and that was mainly down to not have an army on round bases. Some time was spent playing with the Ogres and Demons I already owned but then I was thinking of repainting the demon army itself and all of a sudden the call of a new army beckoned. Since the Stormcast were released I was tempted, the models are cool, the premise is cool and then the Dracoth cav came out and I was sold. A starter set was purchased, a mate then got rid of all his stuff so woop I have a few models laying around the place. The next step was a deciding on a colour scheme.... Having a look around the internetz I kept seeing the GW standard colour scheme which is cool but didn't really inspire me. Being a 40/30K lore bunny I turned to the space marine chapter and legion colour schemes and then it hit me - I love the 30K Thousand sons colour scheme that FW have done for the Horus Heresy... This also fit with having purchased an airbrush and wanting to get used to using it in the hope that I can speed up aspects of army painting and maybe even getting better. This has lead to.... That's about 4/5ths of the models I own. The process is pretty simple - Vellejo Steel and the 4 coats of Angron Clear Red from Forgeworld - it did take a little time to get used to how light the firt layer of the red had to be and I have certainly started to improve the control of the airbrush. The next step is the 'real painting' and adding in a bit of colour... All these pictures are a bit poor, mainly due to the lighting in my flat - I hope to purchase a better lighting set up soon. Any way that's as far as I have got at the moment and there is plenty to get on with. I have to start thinking about the bases, I will be using the shattered dominion and am considering a basic grey might work quite well. At some time I need to give them a name as well but the working title will stay as 'The Thousand Sons of Sigmar'.
  8. Hey, I'm preparing for an upcoming local tournament (my first AoS-tournament and my second warhammer tournament) using the SCGT comp pack, but with legacy scrolls allowed. I would love to get some feedback on my lists. Basically I wan't to use my Free people army, but with some added punch from the Stormcasts. LIST # 1 HEROES Empire General (4) - Stately War Banner Celestial Hurricanum With Celestial Wizard (18) King Louen Leoncoeur (20) Knight Vexillor (8) - Pennant of the Stormbringer UNITS Empire State Troops x 30 (12) - Shield & Sword Empire Crossbowmen x 30 (18) Paladin Retributors x 10 (20) WOUNDS: 121 TOTAL POINTS: 100 / 150 King Louen provides battle shock immunity to the state troops, making them good objective grabbers. The crossbowmen, backed by the generals "Hold the line"-ability and the hurricanum, will be firing 60 shots hitting on 2's and wounding on 3's, with one third of the wounds resolved at rend -1. Retributors and Vexillor of course provide a heavy hammer. LIST # 2 HEROES Empire General (4) - Stately War Banner Celestial Hurricanum With Celestial Wizard (18) Empire Master Engineer (4) - Pistol King Louen Leoncoeur (20) Celestant-Prime (16) UNITS Empire State Troops x 30 (12) - Shield & Sword Empire Handgunners x 20 (12) WAR MACHINES Empire Cannon (13) WOUNDS: 97 TOTAL POINTS: 99 / 150 Very similar to #1 but with the Retributor hammer traded for a Celestant Prime, and the crossbowmen switched to handgunners. Fewer wounds, and fewer non-hero scoring units, but with a cannon. --- Any thoughts and comments would be much appreciated. Cheers, Job
  9. Hello. So I'm building a 1k SE list for my friends to play with when they come over and I purchased these units only and was hoping to get some input on how best to build / load out. These are units I have and will not be purchasing any more for awhile so that's out of the equation. •Celastant on Dracoth 220 •Castellant 100 •1x Gryph Hound 40 •Relictor 80 •10 x Judicators 300 •15x Liberators 320 •2X Dracothian Guard 240-280 Thanks.

    Sunday Project

    G'day guys After having struggled to find any time to paint during the second part of this week I finally found some around Sunday afternoon. So I decided I would try something that I had never managed before. To paint a miniature in one sitting. Originally I had planned on painting my unit of Decimators next but having seen Lohke's awesome Darkoath Chieftain I was inspired to paint up my own Silver Tower model. The Knight-Questor. The model is great fun to paint. Enjoyed it even though I got carried away whilst building him and forgot to paint him in sub-assemblies. So the decision to leave the inside of the cloak white wasn't purely aesthetical. Since I was restricted to poor lighting and my phone camera the other pictures I took of the back were blurry I discovered once back at my PC so decided against uploading those. The cloak is red though just like the leather straps. Kept the inside of it white, felt like a bit too much red if I hadn't. Still undecided about the bases but I made a new test one and it turned out alright I think. Might actually get to finish all the bases soon enough. Anyway, that's about it really. Hopefully I'll have some more time to paint this upcoming week. Looking forward to having a unit of Decimators on the table. Until next time, Markus
  11. A thread to show off my stormcast externals and get feedback.
  12. I just wanted people's opinions of my 1k semi competitive (I hope) Stormcast. lord Celestant (General) - extra attacks trait lord castillant knight venator (Extra damage artifact) knight venator 10 Judicators with bows and 2 special bows (one on the prime) 5 Judicators with bows (prime has special bow) 3 prosecutors with spears (prime has trident)
  13. Hey guys, I figured I would start this blog by showing of where I got started and where I ended up after experimenting with the color scheme, different techniques, brushes, brands of paint etc. Sadly I never took any pictures of these initial trial and error runs and most of the models I painted were stripped afterwards to match with the scheme I finally settled on. But I'll include a picture of the one unit that was saved and simply retired rather than stripped and redone. This was the very first unit I picked up and painted. As you can see I tried to go for a kind of hoplite look giving them Corinthian helmets and round shields. I was also planning on adding spears rather than swords but I could never find any suitable ones and my attempts at modelling/altering the ones I had ended up in a few spectacular failures. It was good practice non the less I suppose. I apologize about the poor pictures and lighting, I tried to create a makeshift light box. It's better than nothing but I'll see if I can't purchase one or make an improved version of mine in the near future. I was never really happy with the paint job either, sure It was my very first attempt at this but It just seemed sloppy to me and I knew I could do better. And there was also the matter of the colors themselves. I had envisioned a really bright almost sky blue turquoise. Similar to what I thought I had seen in some of the pictures from the GW website and box art. So I asked the staff at my local gaming store how I would best go about painting the Celestial Vindicators. They recommended a color scheme from one of those painting guides GW sell, and that seemed good enough to me so I got started with a base of Sotek Green and a few other colors. It looked decent enough, but far from that very vibrant and bright turquoise I was going for. Back to the store I went and pretty much grabbed every hue of turquoise I could find. After about 4 or 5 test models I settled on one I was pleased with, done with the Light Turquoise from Vallejo Model Color on a white primer rather than black. This is what that looks like, the model isn't entirely done, his tabard and the grip of the hammer are examples of places I still need to finish up. So this is where I am right now, about done with my 10 liberators from the starter set that I got cheap on ebay. I've also painted up a Heraldor that I picked up at the store for no reason what so ever, he looked sweet on the box and I grabbed him. The joy of not knowing how stuff plays is that I can just purchase whatever I fancy without worrying too much about viability in matches. The unit of 4 liberators along with the Prime from the previous pictures is also when I discovered that humidity and priming don't go together very well. I spent a good hour just scrubbing them trying to remove the primer that had clogged up the entire models. I got a lot of it of but you can still see how the edges and lines are not as crisp as they should. I think I managed to recover to the point where I don't mind it from a far, I'll definitely play them and enjoy it without thinking about it. I think I'll end it there, need to get some painting done whilst I have some time to spare. I'll see if I can't get an update out soon-ish to post either a picture of everything together, a step by step or perhaps my experiments with bases so far. If you managed to get through my wall of texts 'till the end.. I'm impressed. Cheers! Mark
  14. I am waiting on my initial 10 Judicators to come in. I wanted to get some feedback on my potential color schemes and see what people think. The first is to do silver with magenta pauldrons, shields, and accents second: a metallic purple(silver with purple glaze) with orange shields, pauldrons, etc for eithe I have no idea what color tiny to give the Prosecutor wings when I eventually get them. feedback is very welcome
  15. hi guys, I've got: 1 Lord-Celestant (sealed) 1 Liberator box set (sealed) that will make 5 models 5 more Liberator's from the AOS starter box set. Looking for £50 for the lot of £40 for the lord and liberator box set.
  16. So, I love the aesthetic of the stormcast eternals. It's what brought me back to warhammer (specifically, popped into local GW in new city for first time after maybe 10 years and saw Knight Venator). Right now though, as I look at the model variety, they're a bit behind other armies. I see a lot of visual variety* in other lists. Stormcast haven't quite the same breadth just yet. They're new and incomplete - it's not a complex explanation. If you look at the variety granted even by the inclusion of 2 kits and a mini-battletome (extremis chamber) and factor in the inclusion of 3 more chambers you can see why it feels like it does (at least for me). But there's nothing at the moment saying I need to stick to Stormcast as there's no allegiance bonus. So that's what I'm thinking about now. Artillery and wizards are mentioned often and I have a wizard, and another on the way. I may get some artillery too but I'll be waiting to see how Steamhead Duardin rumours finally materialise before I decide on that. I've got some spare glade guard, miners and silverhelms to build. Silverhelms I think are quite cool and useful (and battleline). Glade Guard are neat but don't really fit (for me). The miners, though I love. I'm going to work on them first then plug something else in. The army is on a quest for rare minerals and they've sent 2 units of their best miners with an OTT stormcast escort. I'm thinking I'll paint them with blue and silver then elements of gold (echoing the Hammers of Sigmar - copied standard GW) or I'll paint them really muted in colour as a contrast. In game I think they're pretty handy. They don't (being a retired warscroll of sorts) really miss out on a lot of synergy by being plugged into another faction alone (unless I've missed something). As a matter of fact they work in a lot of stormcast combos - vex/retributor - by just adding miners to the strike. They're not an elite unit (come in 10s) helping with model count issues in Stormcast forces. Not too dear for what they can do at 120. Can pop up anywhere (already said but it works really well for objectives). Have a good balance of ranged attacks (pony cart!) and melee. They're actually pretty rend-y too. Drill on their champion is -3! They seem like fun. Tbh if I had the funds and thought I'd survive painting so many, I'd hunt down hundreds of miners. I probably will in the years to come. What else do you think goes well with a stormcast host? In a fluffy sense, in an aesthetic sense and in a gameplay sense. Edit/ *I've been persuaded they're actually quite flexible on the table and I admit I worded my post wrong. I was talking more about needing a break from their aesthetic most of all!
  17. A few days ago I went to the 1 day event Alliance in derby run by the infamous ben curry + ben Johnson. The event was 3 games using the generals handbook scenarios blood and glory (I still believe curry named this one) border war and gift from the heavens which ill talk about later, so with regard to tournaments I've only been to the SCGT earlier in the year so I still not sure what to expect, having played stormcast for the last year I decided to take them my list was ... not the most optimized but I had it all painted, the idea was throw the retributors somewhere they need to go then use the skybourne slayers to capture objectives. Simple. So the first game was against khorne daemons... skarbrand, blood letters, bloodthirster with big axe and the run and charge bloodthirster. We played blood and glory which I ended up with a minor win; I found that this game was really about give and take. What I mean is trying to hold onto your objectives while taking your opponents made this game very interesting however I had an idea that if I didn't over stretch my forces and only held 2 objectives that I could win by killing the bloodthirsters and that's what happened. Game 2 was against allarielle who I have mixed feeling about, this was the border war scenario against stormcast and obviously allarielle. This was another great scenario I have a hunch that fast moving armies might do well in this scenario as its all about getting the objectives where your opponent has left venerable, allarielle literally went on a killing spree, killing a unit a turn with damage 5 attacks she constantly got 20 wounds through no problems; but once again I really liked the scenario. Game 3 saw a gift from the heavens... anyways my opponent in this game was using dark alves with a big block of witch elves and executioners both very scary, I played this scenario the day before at Warhammer world and found that I deployed rather centrally to give my self flexibility when the comet came down also I gave my opponent the imitative in turn 2 as I wanted to see where his came down. Again I thought the scenario favoured mobile armies or a better idea is some mobile units like marauder horsemen which also fill the battle line tax. In the end it was a major victory because I brought down the sky bourne slayers and contested his objective also the decimators killed 20 witch elves in a turn hehe, I tried so hard to hide my joy Overall for my first ever 1 day event it was awesome both bens were easy to talk to and really knew what they were doing, plus all the free snacks was awesome I totally cheated on my diet, this was my first real trial of the generals handbook and I loved it the scenarios really encourage well thought out armies relying on fast moving units but at the same time you need bodies on the table. I will defiantly be trying something interesting for Warlords in September. And a big thanks to all my opponents.

  19. All of my Stormcast out on display for the first time.
  20. I'm having a bit of a shake up to make space for new army ideas. I'm selling: 10 Retributors 15 Judicators with bows inc Champ upgrades 5 Judicators with crossbows inc Champ upgrade Vexillor 2 Gryph Hounds - proper ones. Stormcast Wristband! Various sprues with upgrades etc. All are painted to a nice tabletop standard, in an unoffensive scheme, and are nicely based. Ideal as the foundation for a 100/20/2000 army list, or addition to another army. This really is all the good stuff, and to be honest, you don't really find this on ebay very often. It's done be well in recent tournaments, I just want to move onto something different. Pics to come I'm looking at £170 delivered. Also available - A nicely done bastiladon, with magnetised ark/lazer option - £25 delivered.
  21. So I think every stormcast player has some of the pushfit retributors - and these guys really require starsoul maces! You only get 2 a box and each bits site I've checked is out of stock (no wonder). These weapons are like gold dust, so I've started thinking of alternatives. I've checked other mini ranges and I can't say the pickings are good. Haven't found any suitable quick swap. I don't really want to build them myself as they're awkward looking and if I'm subsituting that look I may as well buy some weapon heads (mace, flail or complex axe) that are better built/sculpted and don't involve converions. Than again, it could be easy to take 4 single blades from the decimator axe spares and glue them to a 4 sided bar in the middle... How are other stormcast players handling this conundrum?
  22. I've had two games with the Stormcast at 1,000 points and I'm trying to work out a good list at 2,000 points. SCE lack models, so in the battleplans that require you to have 5 models near an objective can be quite troublesome when your trying to take the objectives in the opponents half. Staying power of SCE with shields is pretty good. That re-roll 1 has saved me on numerous times. With lessons learnt in mind here's my list: Lord Celestant (100) - Leader Lord Castellant (100) - Leader Lord Relictor (80) - Leader Knight Venator (120) - Leader 2x Liberators 5x (200) - Battleline 1x Liberators 10x (200) - Battleline 2x Judicators 5x (320) - Battleline Fulminators 2x (240) 2x Paladin Retributors 5x (440) Prosecutors with Stormcall Javelins 3x (80) Hammerstrike Force (100) - Formation First thing I have to add, is I'm a fluff player. So not interested in the Netlists or maximising my list by putting in Celestial Hurricanum etc I like the Hammerstrike Formation as it give me the ability to deliver the Retributors up field. Prosecutors have been terrible for me in all the games I've played them in, so have opted for the cheaper option, keeping them more than 9" away will give double damage so this is what they will be doing. Knight Venator is there to get rid of that annoying Leader that gives everyone buffs, or to take some wounds of a particularly scary Behemoth. I love the Castellant and Relictor models so they are auto pick for me. Celestant is there for his swishy cloak and Command Ability. Judicators will be deployed to hold objectives in my own quarter and to thin down approaching enemies. I've gone with so many Liberators because to me they are what makes Stormcast so iconic. These I will use to push up field and hold objectives and to be a nuisance. I may look at mixing up the weapon options. Fulminators, because they are fun on the charge and give me a fast moving unit. How is everyone else running their Stormcast?
