Melcavuk posted a topic in Painting and ModellingWhilst i putter away on fun side projects to distract myself I finally have the funds to start a new army, as with all of my older projects this will be conversion centric and something I can put unique flair and effort into. The issue is with the way my mind works I'm awash with potential concepts but finding it hard to settle on a fixed one to develop further. To give some context here are my past projects Fire Aelves - Born of the realm of fire these defiant aelves were in hiding (before morathis lot got announced) led by their demi goddess phoenix queen. The army was flame centric in paint scheme and came from scrolls all across the order faction. Stormcast (Anvils) - One of the few stock army concepts admittedly with alot of model conversions thrown in, again flame centric as it was built for the narrative campaign to go with the above. Trees of Shyish - A planned tournament army that got scrapped due to work commitments. The acolytes of Morghur reborn these skeletal trees were unlike other Sylvaneth Watery Ogres - Based around the toad dragon this beastclaw force led a great storm (as opposed to a blizzard) ravaging the coastlines to pillage and plunder As you can see there's a fair variety but i tend to lean toward forces of order, and with the Idoneth announcement as much as I'd love to do them I suspect they will become one of the most seen armies on the table and thus their appeal is massively tarnished to me. So I'm open to suggestions of themes or units to build and create an army around, aslong as its GW model centric I'll consider almost anything but searching for that specific spark. Any help welcome!
Just a heads-up, nothing in this list had been statted out; it's more of a list of concepts. I want to do this with Spiderfang Grots, as I think they have untapped potential. I also wanted to make up a few Endless Spells for the Bonesplitterz, but I've remembered this a bit too late. Aim: Increase the Bonesplitterz’ overall magical potential and what they can do with it. New Units: Great Beast Skull: Some massive monster’s skull being held aloft by a troop of 6 boys wielding simple choppas. They attack with their choppas in melee. As a natural effect, they are a super-banner; battleshock tests rolled for units close to them get -3. In addition, during your hero phase, you can say that one of the Bonesplitterz’ unmounted heroes may climb aboard the Great Beast Skull (which is molded to have enough space to actually let you do this!). If the model is your general and has an innate command ability, they can use that command ability without paying a command point. If the model is a wizard, then you give him +1 to all casting and unbinding rolls as he soaks up the great beast’s power. As a trade-off, the model on-board gets this units’ move characteristic, and they count as the same unit for purposes of running and charging. Weirdhedz: Elite Troops: Big orruks crackling and shifting with too much Waagh energy; they’re actually former Warbosses who’ve survived long enough to become these things. They attack with slams and headbutts, which is just one weapon profile, with their leader, a Weirdboss, gaining one more attack. If a friendly Orruk wizard is close to them when that wizard attempts to cast a spell, the unit can take d3 mortal wounds to give +1 to the spell’s casting attempt. Avatar of Gork: Behemoth Monster: A giant orruky monster made out of concentrated Waagh! Energy, and is very chaotic. Da Smashy One. Attacks with Mighy Slams and an echoing ‘Eadbutt. When the ‘Eadbutt hits, energy arcs to the closest enemy unit and deals d3 mortal wounds to them. Cannot begin the game on the field, and instead must be summoned by your wizards! Summoning an avatar counts as a spell, and the casting value is quite high. In addition, gives every wizard in the army access to two new spells while he’s out on the field. One spell heals the Avatar of Gork, while the other spell makes a friendly Bonesplitterz unit immediately pile in and attack in the Hero Phase. Avatar of Mork: Behemoth Monster: A giant orruky monster made out of concentrated Waagh! Energy, and is very chaotic. Da Cunnin’ One. Attacks with mighty slams and Waagh! Lightning. Waagh! Lightning has a better chance to hit against Heroes. Cannot begin the game on the field, and instead must be summoned by your wizards! Summoning an avatar counts as a spell, and the casting value is quite high. In addition, gives every wizard in the army access to two new spells while he’s out on the field. One spell heals the Avatar of Mork, while the other spell teleports a unit to somewhere at least 9 inches away from an enemy. Avatar of GorkaMorka: Behemoth Monster: A giant two-headed orruky monster made out of concentrated Waagh! Energy that gets summoned if you blow past the Casting Roll while attempting to summon an Avatar of Gork or Mork. In addition to more Hitpoints, can Slam many times in melee and ‘Eadbutts like the Avatar of Gork AND shoots Waagh! Lightning like the Avatar of Mork. Can’t begin the game normally, like the weaker avatars. Either you can try and go really high, higher than possible on two dice, on the casting roll for the weaker avatars, which does not need for you to have the Avatar of GorkaMorka as points spent in your army, or you can try to summon him like the weaker avatars, albeit with a higher casting roll. This second option requires that you have spent points on the Avatar of Gorkamorka. In addition, he gives all Bonesplitterz Orruk Wizards in the battle access to 3 spells while he’s in the battle: One spell heals the Avatar of Gork, the second makes a friendly Bonesplitterz unit immediately pile in and attack in the Hero Phase, the third spell teleports a unit to somewhere at least 9 inches away from an enemy. Bonus Battle Trait: A new battle trait that you gain in addition to your old ones: Morpaint: At the start of battle, choose 1 unit for every wizard in your army to gain the effects of a type of Morpaint (More warpaint) below: Red: Da speedy paint: When this unit runs, it always counts as 6 inches, and when it charges, you only roll 1 die and add 6 to it. Blue: Da luckiest paint: Any unit with this warpaint gets to reroll any 1 die once per turn for any reason, but must accept the new roll. Yellow: Da richest paint: Any hero unit with this warpaint gets to choose an additional Artefacts of Power item from the list. Any non-hero unit with this warpaint gets +1 to hit from unusually high-quality weapons. Purple: Da sneakiest paint: Any unit equipped with this warpaint can start the game off the board. During your first hero phase (an orruk can’t stay quiet for longer), you must set them up wholly more than 9 inches away from an enemy unit. Black: Da goffest paint: Any unit with this warpaint always passes their battleshock tests Green: Da best paint: Any unit equipped with this warpaint adds 1 to the attack characteristics of all their weapons.
