  1. Hey all, thought I'd share my finished Celestant Prime pics with you. I'm really pleased with the way he turned out. Light might not have been the best for my phone camera. I'm going to enter him in to a local painting come at the GW shop for "something big in AoS". Really enjoying painting the Stormcast. Cheers Dave
  2. Prologue As Valirius Stronghammer fell, blighted-sword skewered through his chest, he had no fear. The blue lightning crackling from his brother’s weapons arcing across the Realm of Shadows was a grim reminder of his purpose; to be reborn a third time, a Weapon of the God King. As his eyes closed, his final act of this life would be to lash out with his mighty hammer, reducing the beast that had slain him to nothing more than a pile of ash. “For Sigmar!” Valirius bellowed, as his head hit the dirt. He knew his soul was on its way to Azyr to be reborn. He was on his way home. The Awakening Although his eyes were still closed, Valirius could feel himself gaining consciousness. He had been through the reforging process before, but this time it felt different. He felt the chill of the Sigmarite armor against his awakening flesh. As he regained his senses, he once again felt the burn of the Plaguebearer’s corrupt blade, and a seed of panic began to grow in the pit of his empty stomach. With growing trepidation, he opened his eyes and looked around in shock. There were no bright skies or heavenly sounds of Azyr. Instead, he found only the Shadows and Mists of Ulgu, the realm where he had been slain. Alarmed and disoriented, Valirius stood, searching for any sign of his Retributor brothers. Surveying the somber battlefield, defiled by Nurgle’s rot, he saw no signs of the rest of his chamber. A few sets of Sigmarite armor were scattered across the landscape, but they were all empty husks, Stormcast Eternals that wore the armor had been brought back to the Heavens, just as they should. Movement caught the Retributor’s eye; he turned his head to see four sets of armor standing up. He raced over to find four more Stormcast, just as disoriented as he. Why had they not been Returned to Azyr after death? No longer feeling the presence of the God King, the quintet knew what they must do next: seek out a Realmgate.
  3. A test model for an all-female stormcast prosecutor army I've been toying with. Unfortunately I've been distracted from the project and I think now I'm going to use her as a combatant on my Archaon base diorama, but I think that it's definitely a viable theme ;)
  4. Hello All, I will be receiving in a few days the AoS Starter Box, and all i really want out of it is the Stormcast Eternals. So if anyone would like the Khorne Bloodbound and the rules, measuring sticks and booklet. Give me a yell. I am in Australia but international postage may be an option. Cheers all! Keong-
  5. Hello! New member here. Long time player of warhammer fantasy now AoS. After some time playing other miniature games while the End Times dust settled I finally committed myself to begin a new army in AoS (I know, I dragged my feet a little bit). My hobby group is fast approaching our next grow league and since I am a fairly slow painter I wanted to get a head start! Here are my first 5 liberators. Let me know what you think or if you have any questions! I always try to push myself with every new army I paint and do feel this is my best work to date, so be gentle. I would also like to shout out this forum, while this is my first post I have been lurking on here for quite some time. Great community, huge inspiration (some of the painters and sculptors on here are incredible!) just a wonderful place to get in touch with the hobby. Thanks for looking. -Eric
  6. Hello everyone, I'm Jake (sometimes Bruticus) and I have been painting Age of Sigmar for a while now, but somehow I've never started a blog here. I've been working on a Chaos Warband that are pledged to Malal, the forgotten Chaos god that likes to pick fights with the others. This warband is full of conversions and is inspired by the illustrations of Adrian Smith, Mike Mignola and the anime Berserk - among other things.
  7. Hi all, Quick question regarding teleporting Liberators around the board using the Vanguard Wing formation... Does it count as retreating if you teleport them out of combat? The reason I ask is as I understand it the destruction special move was FAQ'd to essentially say that any movement to leave combat counts as a retreat, however the Liberators don't move per se. They are re-deployed, as in removed from the tabletop and set-up within 5" of the prosecutors. Thanks in advance. Jon

  9. Hi All, apologies if already asked on the forum- all answers appreciated; 1) After completing a lightning strike move, can you charge later that turn or is the landing your entire "move", including charge, for that turn? AND 2) If you have a Knight-Azyros you can lightning strike within 5" of him, even if that means you are within 9" of the enemy. Is there a minimum distance to the enemy that you can deploy? If so, what is it? Or could you land within 1" or 2" of an enemy unit, essentially lightning striking into combat?
  10. So I played a SC v SC today. 1500pt game. I lost. Miserably... what on earth is a good counter for these blimmin concusors?! they just absolutely RUIN my infantry and make mince of anything that isnt on a stardrake. Any advice welcome!
  11. I feel like painting one of them. Anybody got a spare liberator or similar they'd be willing to part with for a couple of quid?
  12. Super basic question, but can't find an answer anywhere on the web. What kind of hammer does the Celestant on Dracoth from the AoS starter set come with? Lightning or Tempestos? Any clarification would be much appreciated! Cheers
  13. Hey all, I've just finished a Knight-Azyros (awesome model to paint) and I tried to do an OSL effect for the firs time. Id like people's thoughts and some constructive criticism from people better at the technique. I used an airbrush and added flow improver to try and make the paint translucent. The problem I had is that the yellow "light" appeared green when applied in thin coats. It improved with more layers but I was too scared of applying too much paint and losing the translucent glow effect on the parts it was hitting. Dont get me wrong, I'm happy with it overall, but would like to tap in to the knowledge of others. Cheers Dave
  14. This is the same story posted earlier but I can not seem to edit mistakes I caught on subsequent proof readings. So here is an edited version with some grammer and readability improvements. Alarik stepped out of the realmgate onto the soil of Ulgu, his retinue close in step. Having so recently been among the purifying light of Sigmar's kingdom, the sudden and complete blackness of Ulgu blinded him. His eyes desperately grasping for light as they struggled to adjust. After a few moments he could make out some blurry shapes within the small halo of ghostly violet light emitted by the realmgate. The blasphemous realm immediately wore on his nerves. The shimmering white and gold armor of Alarik's host had so often seemed to him a radiant manifestation of Sigmar's fury. In the deep darkness of the shadows realm however the glittering armor and shimmer of storm infused magic of Alarik's host seemed little more than a dim candle in a vast, uncaring night. As Lord Relictor Balhoth stepped from the realmgate Alarik's eyes had adjusted as much as could be expected in such a place, and he peered back to meet Balhoth's gaze. Balhoth looked somehow more powerful in this domain. In a realm that so drained Alarik with its hidden and wretched nature, Balhoth seemed to emit an aura of hidden arcane potency just out of tangible sight. "How fitting for a dark and brooding land to welcome such a dark and brooding man, how dramatic." Alarik scoffed to himself. Despite Alarik's distrust and subtle mockery of the macabre nature of the Relictor, Alarik could not deny the power of his presence. Like most Lord Relictors, Balhoth was adorned from head to toe in dark Sigmarite armor, adorned with bones and sinister looking charms. Grandiosely segmented into gold trimmed plates forming a formidable aegis around each limb of Balhoth's towering figure. The suit of armor was crowned with a menacing skull masked helm the expression of which seemed to both embrace and mock the threat of death. For a moment Balhoth's pale, skull visaged helmet appeared to glow with an ethereal light which defied reason in so dark a place. In contrast to the ghostly countenance of his helmet The Lord Relictor's black armor plates seemed darker and reason was betrayed once more by Balhoth's appearance as tendrils of black mist appeared to leap chaotically around Balhoth's silhouette. A disturbing aura of death and night that licked hungrily at the darkness that enveloped the Stormcasts. The dark and deathly aspect Balthoth had been possessed by frightened Alarik. A feeling he had all but forgotten since his reforging. Alarik feared he was about to witness the betrayal of the Lord Relictor at the hands of some terrible gift of power and madness granted by Ulgu itself. Alarik squinted, focusing more intently on the Lord Relictor. Alarik hoped to will Balhoth into a less blasphemous form of existence. As equal measures of fear and anger grew in Alarik, his attempt to focus on Balhoth and center his thoughts seemed to work. To Alarik's surprise and relief the shadow tendrils and ghostly glow of Balhoth's mask began to disappear and Alarik immediately began to distrust his senses in this world. "What a wretched place." Alarik cursed aloud, still facing Balhoth. "I met no resistance coming through the gate Balhoth and it worries me." "I expect frontal assault is not the way of this realms denizens." Balhoth offered in reply."I know little of this realm Alarik but I fear we may miss the brutal honesty found in the frontal assault of a Khornate horde." Balhoth continued grim but resolute."None have returned from this realm, it is unlikely our rescue mission will end in anything but death." Alarik frowned inside his helmet, glad the rigid facial features forged in the mask of the his helm hid his repulsion at the sad truth of Balhoth's declaration. Why did he ever hope to find comfort in the words of the Lord Relictor? Balhoth was seldom wrong but even more seldom was the Lord Relictor comforting. Cold, tactical truth was his fluency. A fact which Alarik almost hated as much as he valued it. "Pleasant thought Balhoth." Alarik returned." If I get frightened I will dream of the bloodied platues of Aqshy." Despite the forced levity in his words Alarik knew the chances of finding Halvir were slim but why had the God King created him if not to venture into such places and bring hope to those in opposition to the dark pantheon. He knew it was not a mission forged in the cold, calculating reason that so endeared his Lord Relictor to him, but a need to find his lost comrade that burned within Alarik. Some memory from a forgotten life, just out of reach that drove Alarik's desperate foray into Ulgu. Ulgu hid it's secrets as if sentient and maniacal, adding the fate of any who dared tread its paths to its many secrets. As Balhoth had so poignantly stated, those that had entered Ulgu had never returned from its insidious clutches, but his brother in war would not be left alone in this cursed place to die or worse. The Stormcasts had arrived. Just as Lord Grufflz told Rulk they would. "He is so smart smart he is." Rulk thought to himself. The skaven commander known as Grufflz had seen one of the stormcasts dragged off into the darkness by a dark figure the skaven forces only knew as the broody one. Grufflz did not know much about the broody one but he had been seen sporadically in the region lately. Up to no good Grufflz was sure of, which made Grufflz respect the broody one. it takes brains to scheme and made things so much more interesting. Rulk drooled and snorted in excitement , whispering to himself. "Storm bullies so dumb dumb getting caught by broody one. Lord Grufflz will skewer them. So glorious." Rulk could see the Stormcasts adjusting to the darkness. They seemed so slow to move and adapt to him. He wondered how they ever had success fighting when they moved so slow. Remembering his duties Rulk let out a low hiss to signal to his troops nearby it was time to draw the Stormcasts into the darkness. To prepare for Sigmar's intrusion on Lord Grufflz bounty. The broody one after all was know to attract warpstone some how. Expecting the Stormcast to arrive in search for their kidnapped companion Lord Grufflz had cunning had his force hedge up the foliage in some areas. The terrain was chocked with this wooden vines. With some manipulation by Rulks men the only clearing in the vines would decide the path of the Stormcasts without them knowing it. "It needs to look natural, and smooth smooth. We need to give them a path without them knowing we doing it." Grufflz had explained. The next part of the plan was Rulk's favorite. He grew giddy as he remember Grufflz commands. "Remembers cunning ones, stay low low and hidden. Push their feet so softly. Bring them to us. If they wander nudge them here and nudge them there. The are large and blunt, they will not notice you." Such an exciting command to sneakily force the path of the Stormbrutes. Nudge them ever so slightly off course without them noticing. Rulk reveled " So much fun can be had in the dark. So much tricky tricks." Rulk wondered to himself why Lord Grufflz had passed on participating in such an exciting sneaky challenge."Other things he need be doing. So smart, so important." Rulk of course did not realize he had been sent on what could likely turn out to be a suicide mission. If Alaraki did notice the skaven skulking in the darkness he would end them as he sought to end all followers of the chaos pantheon. To Be Continued..... (I will update a narrative version of the battle report when I get a chance)
  15. Here is the latest entry leading up to our first game. The Pass of Hidden Hands Alarik stepped out of the realmgate onto the soil of Ulgu, his retinue close in step. Having so recently been among the purifying light of Sigmar's kingdom, the sudden and complete blackness of Ulgu blinded him. His eyes desperately grasping for light as they struggled to adjust.

  16. Good afternooon everyone. I have just heard of the tga.community site while listening to the Mortal Realms Podcast. Really loving the story driven and player cooperation based design that characterizes Age of Sigmar. I'm in a bit of an awkward place where I am really excited about it but none of the guys I play 40k with care at all about it. I am working on an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering that eats up time like an snowball in hell. So with no one to really play with and limited time to play I am mostly buying up the armies i'm interested in and painting where I can. My plan is to hit up the flgs and try to meet some new people to play with when things slow down a little. I did get a friend that play Necrons to did his skaven out. We have started up a narrative campaign with a hero leveling system I half-baked up. I am still writing the battle report but some of those details can be found at realmwalker.wordpress.com I am currently working on 3 main armies Some Stormcast eternals that mostly consists of the starter box, though fighting skaven I may be getting some judicator and decimators. I am also really enjoying painting and building some Khorne Bloodbound. Khornate warriors of chaos are actually my very first minaitures army collection ever. I abandoned them when everyone around me started playing 40k. I also have a sylvaneth force I am painting up. I wan to ally them with a high elf dragon and dragon princes as if a dragon is hiding in Gyhran, protected by servants of alarielle and a few surviving aelfs. We will see where the main narrative goes as far as aelfs are concerned before I finish up that part of the army.
  17. Now I've never been much of a gamer. Since I saw my first Space Wolf I have loved collecting and every now and again painting a model. I tried to get into Warhammer Fantasy, about a year before the end times kicked off. I became a bit frustrated with the rules and the amount of models you had to get to even field an Army. When I moved to London a couple of year a go I had set out to create a 40k army. I had amassed 500 points and used to go to my local GW and play the store manager. I had asked about Fantasy and he said, "Just wait." So I waited. The 11th of July 2015 rolled round and with it Age of Sigmar was born. I was very happy. Easy to understand rules, great new models and factions! I was in heaven! So with that I put together a Ogre army and started attending the Hackney Area Tabletop Enthusiast club. My ogres did ok. Then I went to SCGT being a complete newbie my army building skill were not quite there (still not) I got whooped almost every game, but I had a great time. If you have ever wanted to go to a tournament, but have been too worried or scared, dont be. All the guys I played were great. After SCGT I was hungry for more hobby. I picked up the Death and Order Battletome. I bought a load of Stormcast, started painting them, then got distracted by Fyreslayers. Now, while I love my angry baby army, I found things lacking with them. No real great formations, aside from the Forge Brethren and the big monster is lacking. (especially coming from playing a Stonehorn for a while.) That being said one of my all time favourite games over the last year was against Ironjawz. Everything came together, the Grimwrath was Surrounded by Orruks, killing them left and right and tag teamed with the Battlesmith he was a wrecking machine they were both left standing at the end of the game Grimwrath with 2 wounds and a load of Orruk heads at his feet. I suffered a minor defeat but had a great time. I have the makings of a Moonclan Army now but I will happily wait for a Battletome for those little Psychos before I even consider starting them. SCGT 2017 is going to be great. I have not been able to go to any tournaments since then but after August this year hopefully I will be able to go to more. So onto my SCE army. After the Fyreslayers, I thought it would be best to go back and finish the Stormcast I had bought. With two Purchases I now had a Warrior Brotherhood. I like the fact that there is great mobility, great looking models, a great Battalion and I love the fluff with them as well. I had loved the Fantasy Warriors of Chaos. Big hulking heavily armored warriors coming to smack face and take names. I always thought the "Good" factions needed that. I will most likely be taking Stormcast to SCGT 2017. I know there is the current "net list" for Warrior Brotherhood. Mine is different to that as it includes a Venator and a Celestant as the heroes along with one Knight Azyros. I think you can guess the rest for the army from there. I went with a Lord Celestant as the fluff had drawn me to use him. I couldn't see myself playing Stormcast without having a Celestant as a General. The Venator is there because I love the model and the ranged threat is very appealing to me. The Azyros is there because I had 100 points left and it would be rude not to have some units that can strike withing 3 inches of the enemy! Now I do understand that you cant just have the hot new battalion and expect to be the greatest player in the world but it'll be fun learning how to use them and gain the best I can from them I've added the photo of my Venator. I've gone for the Lions of Sigmar colour scheme for my SCE. Primed black,Balthazar Gold, Hashut Copper, Seraphim Sepia and then finished Sycorax Bronze. Although I do think the Star Eagle is the best thing I have ever painted. I hope to be updating this blog with battle reports and other painting bits. Thanks for reading. Dan
  18. 2016 saw me start back with the hobby. I played a staggering 9 games of AoS, (5 of which were at the Facehammer tournament) using an army made up of some re-based stuff I still had lying around and some units a friend kindly let me use. Whilst I didn't exactly play an abundance of games or manage to achieve some grand hobby milestone I thoroughly enjoyed my AoS experience and can definitely say that I have caught the bug. Towards the end of the year I started to think about what army I wanted to collect and decided on Stormcast Eternals, the poster boys themselves. I have made the following hobby resolutions for 2017: 1) Fully paint a new army (Ideally to a reasonable tabletop standard) 2) Attend 3 tournaments throughout the year 3) Play at least 10 practice games before each tournament With these targets in mind I have decided to start a blog recording my exploits and (hopefully) progression. Jon
  19. Hey guys, I'm back for more help. This time I'm attending a 2k tournament in January. I was gifted a stardrake for Christmas and would love for it to be included in my list. Here is what I was thinking: Lord Celestant (100) Drakesworn Templar (500) Lord Castellant + gryphound (140) Loremaster (100) Knight Venator (120) Liberator x10 (200) Liberator x5 (100) Liberator x5 (100) Prosecutors with Javelins x5 (80) Prosecutors with Javelins x5 (80) Fulminators x4 (480) What do you guys think? I fell like it doesn't really have enough umph, perhaps I need to swap in some retributors. Oh, and for those wondering why I've taken the prosecutors, I'm not a fan of the judicator bow models and I feel like I get more bang for my buck with two units of prosecutors for the same price as one unit of liberators
  20. I have the starter set - if I get Start Collecting Stormcast Eternals is it possible to build / convert in such a way to build the grand blade and grand hammer so I can make 2 units with a special weapon? Don't mind cutting bits off my existing models if necessary!

    Concussor

    Im quite the novice painter, only started painting when Aos first dropped. This is my first completed concussor, im quite happy how it turned out in the end. Got inspiration to do the red after watching warhammer tv's paint guide on godrak.
  22. Updated on my Stormcast Eternals
  23. Hello Friends! this is my first post after lurking these forums for a while, soaking in all manner of dark secrets and tactics. i've recently started collecting and playing Stormcast. from what ive read and played there's a few options to build some powerfull lists. most Revolve around Warrior Brotherhood. - Skyborne Slayers - or the Ret bomb. Ive got a 2.5k friendly tournament game comming up soon. and i have no intention of being friendly. i want to field true disgusting stormcast power. also i lost the couple of games so im entitled to revenge i think. Ive got 2 lists in the workings. Desolator Bomb Leaders Lord Castellant (100) +1 Save and a 7 to heal? wording and Errata Means this heals instantly. with mystic shield its a 5+ to heal.. mmm Knight Vexillor (200) Use it turn 1 to kill something big, or wait a turn to bait out the big targets. - Pennant. Lord Celestant (100) +1 to hit bubble? seems good. 9 inches range and movement 5 Means you wont get to use his buff that often. Battlemage (100) Beasts. +1 to wound? Dracoths doing d6 damage on a 5+ instead of 6? Celestial Hurricanum With Celestial Battlemage (320) +1 bubble, Larger bubble. Faster movement will ensure you get it when you need it. Volkmar The Grim (100) Reroll to hit? or +1 to hit and run or a 6 + Ward against mortal wounds. can unbind 2 spells? seems crazy good. Battlemage (100) Life. 6 + Ward? and healing on models with 5 wounds Nice!. Units Desolators x 8 (960) Thunderaxes. 48 attacks.. damn everything goes your way they are hitting on 2+ 2+ rend -1 and 2damage. lovely. Dracoths spitting mortal wounds is also pretty good - goes to a 3+ with celestial in range. Judicators x 5 (160) Little bit of ranged - Skybolt Bows Judicators x 5 (160) - Skybolt Bows Liberators x 5 (100) Little bit of tankyness to guard squishy mages. - Warhammers Liberators x 5 (100) - Warhammers Total: 2500/2500 Idea focused around the Desolators "If you have 6 or more models they make 6 attacks with thunderaxe" Battleplan? Buff the living hell out of the desolators. if all of your buffs go off you have some insane Power and durability in that one unit. Either drop them in on turn 1 to take out a god character like nagash or archeon. or just hold them back. they their 10 inch move they should reach pretty far, in which case you can vexilor them to another target or get them out of harms way.(unlikely scenario). With mystic shield and castellent buff they should be able to take on any kind of punishment. except mortal wounds. i did a little bit of dice math. and should they all make it into combat with say... Archeon with mystic shield. they do around 35+ wounds. So on paper that looks pretty good. Trouble is... after the initial turn of destruction your army is divided. Thought's Guys? have you Guys tried a list like this? is it even powerfull or am i being a fool?.
  24. I had 50 multipart (so swords/grand weapons/hammers/paired weapons) Stormcast Liberators. Still on sprue, untouched by clipper or file, supplied with their bases. £30 for ten, posted to UK? You know you all want them for your warrior brotherhoods and such. All sold. Thanks all.
  25. Greetings All, I have a 1500 pt event (1,000 pt unit restrictions) in January. I play Stormcast Eterenals and was planning on using the Skyborne Slayers battalion as the core of my force. I also considered the Warrior Brotherhood, but I think Skyborne gives me the option to have more heroes at this point level in case I get Place of Power as the mission. This is the list I play tested last Friday against an Ironjawz Ironfist battalion with a mawcrusha, two warchanters, two ardboyz units, and two brute units. We rolled the escalation battle plan. Skyborne Slayers - 140 Lord Celestant - 100 Lord Celestant on Dracoth - 220 Knight Venator - 120 10 Liberators - 200 10 Judicators - 320 5 Decimators - 200 5 Protectors - 200 I went first and dropped them around the middle objective but had them a bit too clumped up to get off good charges. There was some building terrain around the middle and only my decimators were able to charge one of his brute units. One big thing I did wrong was keeping the Lord on Dracoth too far back. I didn't want him to get charged first so he didn't get into combat till the 3rd turn. I forgot to use quite a few things like the dracoth breath and the lord celestant's command ability. At the end of the game I lost 6 to 4. It was a bit of a bloodbath with only my Lord on Dracoth, and my Knight Venator left standing. The IronJawz player had his mawcrusha, both chanters and one unit of brutes. Any tips for how to better drop the battalion or suggested list tweaks? Thanks for looking.
