    Nighthaunt Subfactions

    So, this an idea thats been rolling around in my head for a bit, and the more I think about it, the more I would love if Nighthaunt were given Subfactions like some of the other armies in AoS. As for if they deserve them, I would say its justifiable, since Daughters of Khaine and Legions of Nagash were given subfactions while both being from older armies. Even books like Beasts of Chaos and Gloomspite Gitz got semi-subfactions in the bonuses for each of the minor factions that were combined into the larger, overarching books. And thats not even counting armies like Stormcast, Idoneth Deeplkin, Kharadron Overlords, etc. Now, as to what Nighthaunt could get as subfactions, I think some neat ideas would be to help theme each Procession around specific units or playstyle, but I would love to hear from some of ya'll. Some of my ideas are: a Procession themed around boosting Banshee Screams and Casters(Lady O's army) a Procession themed around abusing Terrain and flying around a Procession for Spirit Torments and Chainghasts, maybe increase range and bring back more models for the ST's regen ability? a Procession for bravery shenanigans, maybe drop Wave of Terror for a better Bravery Debuff? a Procession based around Heros, giving them another wound and attack to represent the Heroic Nighthaunt spirits of Hyperia Just some thoughts, but I want to hear from you all; Are these too good? Too narrow? Or should Nighthaunt just not have Subfactions?

    Noobranomicon (Beginners guide to Death)

    I love this hobby, it has a special place in my heart. Getting back into Warhammer has really helped me work through some issues in a fun and productive way. However, I have found that on a lot of forums there is a lot of assumed knowledge required to take part in discussions. So I thought I might be a good idea to make a buffer document to help newer players by breaking things down a bit for the Death Alliance. This will be by no means a complete in depth look at the inner working for our beloved Grand Alliance, but will hopefully help some people to get to know the realm of death a bit better. This first post is going to be some house keeping and general info. List of abbreviations common in the Death Grand Alliance: Grand Alliance- GA Legion of Nagash- LoN Legion of Sacrament- LoS or LoSac Legion of Blood - LoB Legion of the Night - LotN Flesh Eater Court - FE or FEC Nighthaunt- NH Generals Handbook - GH or GHB (usually followed by the year of release, eg GH2018) Core Book - CB or CRB Soulblight - SB Deathrattle - DR Significant Key words Deathrattle - Skeletons Soulblight - Vampires Deadwalkers - Zombies and other rotting corpses Deathlords - The biggest and scariest Death units Abborants - these are ghouls Nighthaunt - Ghosts and spirits Deathmage - Necromancers Contents (Special thanks to TMS for compiling the beginnings of this) Alliances - GA: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=239881 Alliances - FEC: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=240274 Alliances - LoN: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=240815 Alliances - Soulblight: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=241328 Alliances - Nighthaunt: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=241820 Cost of collecting: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=243019 Utilising the aspects of death: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=244437 Magic: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=245901 Surviving the shooting phase: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=246875 Negating wounds: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=247410 Interesting tactics: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=247758 The dead that lurk in the dark: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=248604 Building a wall of the dead: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=248858 Know your foe – order: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=248863 Know your foe – chaos: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=249786 Know your foe – destruction: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=250168 Know your foe – death: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=252113 Theming your army: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=252119 Conversions and kitbashes: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=252531 Realm themes: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=253167 Theming around alliances - order: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=254360 Theming around alliances – chaos, destruction & misc: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=254675 Tools of the dead: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=258817 Flesh Eater Delusions: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=260584 Nighthaunt abilities 1: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=261942 Nighthaunt abilities 2: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=264493 Lore spotlight – Nagash: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=279522 Lore spotlight – Arkhan the Black: https://www.tga.community/forums/topic/18982-noobranomicon-beginners-guide-to-death/?do=findComment&comment=281637
  3. Hello Everyone! Great to meet you all! I've been collecting models for up to a year now but had my first games only 3 weeks ago. Thankfully, I loved it! I collect skellies mostly with a side-army of idoneth deepkin. I'll post up my current collection later for anyone interested. Best wishes to you all and Hail the Great Necromancer Nagash! ? Glace105
  4. Most of the Harrowmark is covered by virtually-impenetrable forest: Seemingly endless leagues of dark, tangled, twisted and unnatural woods. It is a corrupted land: the dead trees are warped by death-magic, skull-formed rock formations tower over the forest canopy like islands in an arboresque sea. The symbols and motifs of death are everywhere. Things live in these forests: malignant, spiteful things. It is a brave soul that ventures under the dark bowers, brave or foolish, as few who attempt to navigate the winding pathways ever emerge again. The forests are shaped by the death magic that permeates them and the things that emerge from the shadowy bowers are shaped by the forest. One terrible example is the dreaded Olshovilaag; the Fiend of the Harrowmark. A massive undead construct made from a conglomeration of monster parts, horns, huge black-feathered wings, lots of skulls, tree branches, bones, rocks and broken weapons. A Death-monster, born from the forest itself. A crow-winged “Terrorgheist". The sound of its beating wings fills the villagers of the Harrowmark with dread. It's screeching stops their hearts and shreds their souls! ?????? This project was a great fun to do and really fast - 9 days from starting building to finishing painting. I wanted to quickly make a large undead creature for a scenario in our Malign Portents campaign "Thy Soul To Keep", but I didn't want to spend any money on it. So I decided to keep it as a "bits box only" project. A quick rundown of the source for the parts used includes: Flesh Eater Courts Zombie Dragon, Daemon Prince, Island of Blood Griffon, Thundertusk, Rhinox, Mournfang, Kurnoth Hunters, Dryads, 1990s plastic Dragon, Araknarok, Skulls box, AoS Large basing kit, Citadel Woods... and probably a few things I've forgotten! I have a lot of hoarded left overs from other projects but I was also recently given a big box of bits by a good friend. That helped a lot with this beastie! "Sketching out" ideas! I had no idea where I was going with this build, and that was quite liberating! I was just rooting through boxes of parts and trying things out. If they worked I glued them on and started looking for the next bit! I knew I wanted something that looked like a huge undead-bird-construct, but I didn't even know how big it was going to be at the end, let alone what it would look like! I think the hind legs were the hardest part to make, as by the time I got to them I had an idea of what it should look like, but I had nothing in my bits box that worked. So I started assembling the legs a piece at a time, and covered the worst joins with flock once it was done. The first stage of painting (for nearly everything I do these days!) was a spray black undercoat and zenithal grey basecoat. Then a drybrush all over with Ushabti Bone. This gives me a great pre-shaded base layer to work up from and picks out all the details nicely. After that I just picked out bone and wood areas, so it wasn't all one colour/texture. (The name Olshovilaag is a bastardised phonetic version of the Hungarian folklore term for the underworld - Alsó világ.)
  5. So I thought it was time to take stock of my growing Vampire Counts army and give them their own plog. Especially considering how old my general one is and how clustered it is. As the title suggested I am going for A Lahmian army, so some stunningly beautiful and dangerously ambitious female vampires at the head of this Khemri style army of the undead. I plan to introduce some tomb kings elements into my force, mixing it with the more traditional vampire counts models, let’s hope eBay will be kind to me. The Undead were my first love in Warhammer, and have been something I have been collecting since I was in primary school, so I’m very excited to finally be able to bring together a completed force that I can use. Age of Sigmar has given me that push to get something playable together and finally start exploring that side of the hobby. Anyway I have decided to open with the first unit I painted in this “new” version of my undead, The Legion of Nehek:
  6. Hello all. I’m a long time GW hobby participant that loves to convert and kitbash. Figured I’d make a place to share the things I come up with. Knights of the Black Chalice This is the start of my Soulblight force. I want them to be an army of knights so I’m converting a lot of counts as units to keep the knightly theme. The plan is to expand it to run as a Legion of Blood force too. We’ll see if I ever get there. Chaos knights as Blood Knights. Shield arms left off for ease of painting. I plan on having 2 more units of 5. This is the start of my counts as Blood Palanquin. Instead of a platform carried into battle by an ethereal host it is a war machine around which spirit hosts will cavort. My converted Knight of Shrouds for Malign Portents who madly believes himself to be a Knight Questor. More Death will eventually follow. I have plans for counts as Vargheist using Stormcast Prosecutors, huge vampire knights borne aloft on ethereal wings. Aetherwings painted as huge ravens to count as Fell Bats, Executioners with head and weapon swaps to be Grave Guard etc. Storm Scions (name still in flux) My custom Stormcast warhost. Taking my inspiration from Viking myth (Sigmar as a mix of Odin and Thor), the god Ulric from the World-that-was, and Space Wolves. First 6 Liberators. 4 more planned in a similar vein. Lord Celestant is still WIP, based on the Neave Blacktalon model. I had to stop working on my Liberators to make this guy once I saw the Warscroll for the upcoming Knight Incantor. Since they are described as stormcallers and I’m using some Space Wolf inspiration I knew I had to make me an AoS version of THE Stormcaller, Njal himself. So I took the leader of the Farstriders as the base since he has a bird on his arm. That gave my my Nightwing, Njal’s Cyber raven. I swapped the head and hands and voila. My Stormcaller Knight Incantor. Up next will be a Lord Relictor then the rest of the Liberators. Other plans include Judicators, Paladins, Raptors and Palladors. Let me know what you think so far.

  8. Hello everyone so I'm primarily a 40k player with an avid interest in fantasy and by proxy AoS (but my friends got into 40k so...) and I've been trying to make a lot of my models backwards compatible and the three factions I'm interested in (in AoS) are Death, Dark Elves, and Free peoples so I'll be trying to make as much of my 40k models backwards compatible. But I think I have some cool conversions you may enjoy So first and foremost the images I shared so long ago here I'll reupload. I'll probably be using these as Varghesits if/when I get my Death army working. Now if I uploaded everything properly you should see my Executioner / Incubi conversions I'd love feedback and everyone's thoughts and I'll try to post everything I view as compatible, and if everyone is okay with it I'll try and squeak in models that I just find too cool not to share if you'd like.

    Game of Tombs

    The right of a King to rule over his people is a dual edged sword, for that right can just as easily be taken from him if he is not careful.- Friso Rathenau, Glymmsforge philosopher. Hello internet! let me just start off by saying that I love the Tomb Kings, it was this army that got me interested in fantasy, so I was devastated to learn the only way to get the original models was to hunt them down via eBay. So I figured I would work my converting muscles and try to fill in the gaps in my army, while I'm at it I might as well create an epic narrative to go with! Bear in mind that I'm also using player created stuff, such as the endless deserts rules by Tyler Mengele( @Mengel Miniatures), and the Suneater Tribes by Ricki Smith( @Melcavuk on this site), as well as my own creations. So I'll finish this first post by posting the Dramatis Personae The Monarchy Toyerse the Generous- High King of the city of Kertaten, and Patriarch of his dynasty. In life he was a kind and humble king, a quality that he carries on in undeath. His four prized horses where destroyed by a Wildfire Taurus known as "The Corrupting Flame", so he had his mortuary cult bind the spell to his will so that it may pull his chariot. Lately he has been showing signs of senility, a fact that is not unnoticed by both his allies and enemies........ Omar the Austere- One of Toyerse's twin sons, Omar was once known as the Kind, and was often scolded for being too lax with the punishment of his subjects. This was before his twin Khusef betrayed their dynasty by turning to the Usurper, becoming a Knight of Shrouds. Since then Omar has raised his city's armies in preparation for war, and to redeem himself in his father's eyes, as despite Toyerse saying nothing could be done, he believes that Khusef's betrayal was still his fault. Sinse the Blessed- When Morathi was revealed to have been tainted by her imprisonment in Slaanesh's gullet, she fled to hide herself in shame. Toyerse came upon the Serpent Queen while exploring Ulgu for signs of the Lost Pantheon returning. When he came upon Morathi, he bowed as he believed that she was Asaph, in an act of (rare) gratitude, Morathi gifted Toyerse with a Melusai to be his daughter, Since has become one of Toyerse's most beloved relatives and has made strong alliances with the Dreadfleet(custom faction I'm working on) as well as the Daughters of Khaine. (More to come later on....) The Mortuary Cult Hadibib the Scholar- The grand hierophant of Kertaten's Mortuary Cult, Hadibib is considered Toyerse's right hand. Though he now only appears at important ceremonies and whenever war threatens the city, as old age is beginning to takes its toll on the priest. Otherwise Hadibid can be found maintaining the cult's Casket of Souls and renewing the wards around Kertaten. It is said that Hadibib has made a deal with the Scarab Prince known as The Dagger of Usirian, though none have lived to discover if these rumors are true...... Khensu- Hadibib's second in command, and chosen successor for the position of grand hierophan, as well as Omar's closest and oldest friend. Khensu lost most of his body during the Malign Portents, leaving only his lungs, stomach, intestines, and liver which were in canonic jars, and his heart. Never the less his spirit preserved, and he had one of the city's Necrotects build him a new body to better contain the energies release during the tumultuous time. After the Necroquake Khensu became rather interested(some would say obsessed) with the phenomena of Endless Spells, and has begun to store certain spells away in special containers, so that he may study them later. Ephen the Penitent- Once a scholar of the Collegiate Arcane, Ephen's war party was destroyed by a rogue Khemric Titan. Ephen survived, only to driven mad by the scorching heat, when he was discovered by Toyerse's scouts he was muttering about "the great father" and had gouged his eyes out for he believed himself unworthy. Since being inducted into the Mortuary Cult Ephren has become one of Kertaten's brightest scholar's and has been blessed by the gods with Witch Sight. I'll post pictures as well as allies later on today, until then!

    NH army list 1000pts

    Hi guys just made a new 1k points list for a new NH army I’m starting. I’ll be honest and say I haven’t got much gaming experience, I tend to paint more than play. Any feedback would be awesome or pointing out anything I’ve missed. The list is battleline - 2 units of 10 grimghast reapers - 240 pts x1 spirit torment - 120 points x2 units of 4 chainghasts - 320 points x1 guardian of souls as my leader to attempt to resurrect everyone x1 lord executioner - 80pts x1 unit of 10 chainrasp horde just as meatbags really i also saw in the tome that chainghast and spirit torments give reroll buffs? Will all these buffs stack or not? The aim of the list was to reroll as many failed hits as possible and do as much damage as I could.
  11. Hi Guys. With the new Legions of Nagash tome i thought it was a good time to put some effort into the old army as vampire counts was always my first love ever since i started fantasy in 7th edition. So as a first step with the process into getting them all on rounds and give them the TLC required to be my pride and joy again, I decided to spend the time and make some game aid spell, ability and artifact cards similar to what Killax and others have done for the chaos factions. This not only got the undead juices flowing but gave me an excuse to read all the book properly Images are either from GW books or just plain old google images and i cant take any credit for any of the art so hope thats not an issue... (mostly MTG I think) Hope you guys find then usable/enjoyable. C&C or suggestions on art are always appreciated. Regards Dracan Edit * Added the latest version of LoN and Night haunt cards Edit * Added some card back options Edit * Added Artifacts of the real cards Legion of Nagash Spell Artifact and Command cards.pdf Night Haunt Spell Artifact and Command cards.pdf Nighthaunt backs.pdf Legion of nagash backs.pdf Realm artifacts.pdf

    Dreadfleet Battletome

    Hello all! If you've been paying attention to total war news like I have, then you know about the vampire coast dlc coming out. The lore for the faction was amazing, and I figured that they would fit into AOS pretty well with some changes, So thats what I plan on doing!
  13. Hi all, I'm a long-time member of warseer who's been occasionally popping here for AOS news etc since the advent of the handbook. With warseer down indefinitely I created an account here so I can continue my project log, hopefully keeping me motivated. I'm also participating in the season of war on Hobby Hammer and am considering entering the painting competition on Mengel's blog. I'm returning to the game following time away wanted to give it a fair crack, so didn't want to revisit/age of sigmar-ise my old elven armies in case it brought up any hang-ups (or didn't take). I'll use this post as a compendium of what's done so far. I managed to knock out the vast majority of the army in about 2 weeks (which with the undead isn't as intensive as it sounds); as I wanted to get the odd game in for the season/handbook release. The painting is hopefully at a decent gaming standard and I'm hoping to have a solid 1000-2000 point force painted.
