Hey Everyone You can see I have posted comments on Flesh Eater Courts a bit. However i realised there is real no Discussion on the allegiance as a whole. Unlike other allegiances like sylvaneth and stormcast etc, where they have a thread dedicate on talking about their rules. I'm coming from a Sylvaneth play style, I had so many artifacts, spells and many other options to take when playing in match play. Now moving into FEC after reading the book, there is no real "Meat" as i would say. Amazing Lore don't get me wrong, but with the lack of Choices in list building. Which I understand everyone who is a death player is getting frustrated with the lack of choice in taking artefacts, most factions are! However I feel the Generals Handbook 2.0 Will change that, with hopefully seeing each allegiance/army that has their own battletombe with no "Meat". Where i think we will see powerful artefacts for FEC especially something cool like SCE have with their rider heroes giving their beasts traits, Spells that can bring back slain models or buff them up somehow. Also giving Magic buffing and combat buffing treasures. That is for every faction BTW not just generic Death ones we have today. Especially with one of the most powerful artefacts being "nerfed" in the FAQ late last year. So lets get this conversation going where we share what we want to see FEC get, i understand it isn't the most popular faction, however they have their own TOMBE and most people don't see them working competitively as a lot of the command abilities is about summoning which costs match play points. But I feel different where I reckon i have wrote a few list with FEC in my mind that would actually be considered "Top Table" worthy. For example i'll share you my 2K list and my 2.5K list that I am building up for a few tournaments here in Australia. Also want to discuss how people use different units in the game and tactics that they use with models like Crypt Ghouls in Ghoul Patrol. 2K List: Allegiance: Flesh Eater CourtsLeadersAbhorrant Ghoul King on Terrorgheist(400)- Artefact: Cloak of Mists and ShadowsCrypt Infernal Courtier (140)- General- Trait: Ruler of the Night- Artefact: Cursed BookVarghulf Courtier (160)Battleline6 x Crypt Flayers (320)- Flesh Eater Courts Battleline (Crypt Infernal Courtier General)6 x Crypt Flayers (320)- Flesh Eater Courts Battleline (Crypt Infernal Courtier General)3 x Crypt Flayers (160)- Flesh Eater Courts Battleline (Crypt Infernal Courtier General)BehemothsTerrorgheist (320)BattalionsDeadwatch (160)Total: 1980/2000 2.5K Allegiance: Flesh Eater CourtsLeadersAbhorrant Ghoul King on Terrorgheist(400)- Artefact: Cloak of Mists and ShadowsCrypt Infernal Courtier (140)- General- Trait: Ruler of the Night- Artefact: Cursed BookAbhorrant Ghoul King on Zombie Dragon(400)Varghulf Courtier (160)Battleline6 x Crypt Flayers (320)- Flesh Eater Courts Battleline (Crypt Infernal Courtier General)6 x Crypt Flayers (320)- Flesh Eater Courts Battleline (Crypt Infernal Courtier General)3 x Crypt Flayers (160)- Flesh Eater Courts Battleline (Crypt Infernal Courtier General)10 x Crypt Ghouls (100)BehemothsTerrorgheist (320)BattalionsDeadwatch (160)Total: 2480/2500 There very similar lists, however I feel at the way the deadwatch works at 2.5K their quite powerful especially with the GK on ZD around in the hero phase and also having two Courtiers to bring back a whole back on a 5+ is quite powerful. So what is everyone recently running? Thinking about building? Conversions etc? Let's get this conversation going and see people just want to run mixed death. - Okami
Once I had the bases down I needed to start coming up with a color scheme for my army. I wanted to go pale and more ghostly at first but then after browsing around online as well as trying out a couple test models I came up with this general look: You might ask yourself where I came up with that scheme? I would love to pass on a great video that inspired me to give it a try, I took this video as my starting point down the path of creating a color scheme for the army: I loved the look of those ghouls, the only thing that sucked was the paints were all in the old style paints so I had to go about and update my painting list but overall after spending a couple days on the models this is the progress I made: 1 Crypt Ghast Courtier 10 Crypt Ghouls 3 Crypt Horrors 1 Crypt Haunter Courtier Started on the Zombie Dragon Here are some shots of the progress: Finishing up the week with starting on the Zombie Dragon (I started playing with the wing)...
CannedBrains posted a blog entry in There is only War: An Age of Sigmar blog by CannedBrainsHi! This is my first blog ever... I am hoping it'll be interesting, informative, and also might inspire one or two people. I am going to document out my very first large project. Preparing the Army (What I ended picking up): 2 older boxes of Crypt Ghouls (10 in a set) 1 box of Crypt Horrors 2 boxes of the King Vlagorescu's Ghoulish Host Flesh-Eater Courts Battletomb Some random bits of information: Took me about 3-4 days to clip, clean, and put together the various models so I could get them ready to prime Had to be very careful when figuring out what units that I would assemble, I was pulling my hair out trying to get the right combinations! In the end the units that I went with were: 1 Abhorrant Ghoul King on Zombie Dragon (He's going to be fun... *Grins*) 1 Abhorrant Ghoul King 5 Crypt Ghast Courtiers 2 Crypt Haunter Courtiers 1 Crypt Inferno Courtier 2 Varghulf Courtiers 1 Terrorgheist 2 units of Crypt Horrors (Had enough to do 2 separate units with a max of 6 Horrors in each unit) 2 units of Crypt Flayers (3 Flayers in each) 4 units of Crypt Ghouls (Total of 80 ghouls with the option to do up to four separate units)
I was lucky to have a few days off work... So I set off on a bid to try and get most of the mundane items finished. I've included some of the various shots of progress through those days (No Particular order): I have to say that after the first week I was quite happy with my progress, getting the mundane stuff out of the way helped push me forward and ahead. I was now itching to try and get some of the models painted... I finished the week with the near completed base: (Next post I'll show you some progress shots of the actual miniatures!)
