  1. Hello, i have known warhammer for a long time but just decided to start my first aos army, i have dark vengeance 40k but no more so i would like some advice. I chose chaos starting with undivided ("slaves" to darkness). I would like to branch out to each god eventually. I like having lots of variety and bringing something different each game. For now i have the start collecting, a hellcannon and 10 forsaken. In the attachment you can see my wishlist for chaos undivided (ignore the weapons). I'm not sure if this is ok though. I'm mostly worried about not having enough marauders or chaos warriors as meat of the army. Perhaps i should get more of those? another box marauders and another start collecting? More marauder horsemen too? I'm also worried that 5 furies are not enough to make an impact. Thank you for reading and helping. ChaoswarriorsUndividedMissmeermaraudersofwarriors_.pdf
  2. I have been eyeing up the Orruk Ironjawz models for awhile now. With the new edition it looked like a great time to buy some models. Here is what I told my LGS to get me Start Collecting! Ironjawz - 3 gore riders, war canter, 10 ardboys Ironjawz Weirdnob Warband - 1 shaman, 5 ardboys, 5 brutes What else do I need to get right away? With the new edition is there a smart way to build the models AKA don't use weapon X also use weapon Y?
  3. Hello Alliance! As a new player to the hobby (plastic crack they call it ) i started with a small box called a Storm of Sigmar. My thoughts were- let's try it. It's cheep, there are some different units, two armies (so i thought) - all cool. In the perspective my opinion on Storm of Sigmar are quite negative. Sure its cheep and easy way to jump in AoS but in very limited way. Sure it's good if you are thinking SKIRMISH. But if you want to start regular army there are numerous issues. First of all you dont get any unit in numbers you need to feel requirements of warscrolls- 5 blood reavers? and then what? you missing next 5! Ok You can buy another Easy to build set but then another problem pop up- the whole unit looks the same. I know this is not necessarily a issue for some players but for me is a little disaster . I guess you can buy some miniatures on eBay... but.... As i mention all units are missing miniatures for a normal AoS units. Buing next 4 Easy to Build boxes rises price of SoS too high IMO But Storm of Sigmar is in the past. It serves it purpose. Now the BIG Starter set. I think the value is outstanding!! For all the goodies you get price between 55 - 65 (third part retailer) is brilliant. but again it is without issues. First of all, since rules are free, you actually don't need the rule book (except for all fluff) and it's targeting only players who wants to play poster boys Still awesome value! A lot Blood for a Blood GOD!!! There is still Thunder & Blood and i find this is the starter i should start! You got heroes full warscroll units. Sure it got issue with ETB units looking like f****ng clones but it is great. Plus i think (i hope more experienced players will agree will agree with me) it is a great addition to a big starter. What are your thoughts on starters??
  4. Hi there, I'm a complete beginner and own no miniatures at the moment and have played nothing but the total war games (which I own both of) and have been interested for quite some time now of buying a starting kit to build an army. I've done a few hours worth of research but am finding it difficult to find all the information I need to start in one place so I have some questions! First off, I'm looking at first buying the stormcast vs khorne set as it gives me two armies at a fair price so I could play with a friend. I would like to own two armies eventually and build them consecutively hoping to eventually be khorne + tzeench and stormcast + kharadron overlords. Mostly curious if the khorne vs stormcast set would be the best starting place for that, or if I should buy the individual starting sets first (more interested in the vanguard than externals set) and if those combinations would even work together. Lastly just wondering what all exactly in addition to my starting army I will need to buy to get fully started in a game. Thanks alot for any and all help!

    Bloodbound Allegiances

    Hi All I am fairly new to AoS (played a bit of fantasy in secondary school a long, long time ago) and decided to start collecting Khorne Bloodbound. I am enjoying playing a lot but I am getting to a stage were I'd like to take a step up and maybe invest in taking my collection to the 2000pt level. I currently have the Bloodbound half of the AoS starter set (Mighty Chaos Lord, Bloodsecrator, Bloodstoker, Khorgorath, 5 Blood Warriors and 20 Bloodreavers) and was wondering what would be best to add next? I like the look of some of the other chaos factions, Brayherds and Warherds especially but I don't know if these would be fluff friendly allies or indeed if the benefits of expanding to new factions would outweigh any negatives. Also do Daemons and Monsters of Chaos count as part of the core if given the mark of Khorne? (I like the look of Be'lakor, if not maybe a Daemon Prince) Any help or advice would be much appreciated. Sam
  6. Ok, so, Order Draconis with Allies under the new GHB. Having had a think on what I want to do in AoS as a new player I realised I would be doing myself a complete injustice if I didn't play with Dragons and with lots of Cavalry, hence OD. Models seem to be in short supply, but I would love to have a legacy army full of the miniatures I used to really like before embracing whatever comes next for the Highborn. In terms of an army, what would you suggest? I'm very keen on avoiding the cheese, so perhaps a Dragonlord and an allied Drakeseer with *alot* of Dragon Blades to flood the enemy with, rounded out with Mounted Dragon Nobles and a further allied horse-mounted Archmage? Points wise, Dragon Blades seem to have had a massive points break to just 140pts for 5 of them, while the battalion seems not worthwhile at its points cost? Your thoughts, comments and potential army lists are all welcome

    New Player Looking for Advice

    Hello all, So I havent done any mini painting since I was ... 13? Stop me if you've heard this, but I've gotten the itch in a big way since I started playing Total War and Vermintide. So, 17 years later I'm an adult with disposable income, wanting to dive in and start working on an army for painting and gaming purposes. I've done tons of research on the different armies in production and I've boiled it down to 3 choices. I don't want to invest in an army and then end up hating it so I thought I would ask around on some of my key issues with each option. Sylvaneth: Badass tree warriors that teleport around the battlefield through their wyldwoods? Sign me up. $120CAD for a single wyldwood? Hahahahahahaha. Seriously though, I'm not going to shell out more money for a single Wyldwood than a new SC box. Are alternative Wyldwoods available and accepted in the tournament scene? Or should I move on? Because I fundamentally refuse to spend $200+ on scenery to fully take advantage of an armies passive. Nagash: Spooky scary skelington warriors are totally my jam - they don't seem to have a lot of ranged options. Are there plenty of playstyles available for death players? Also, what's up with GW supporting death players with cheaper markers for their passive terrain features and not Sylvaneth? Seraphon: Stardust dinosaur warriors being summoned through floating magical frogs is also totally my jam. However, I was wondering, how old are some of these models? The larger ones look absolutely amazing, while others look ... blocky? I'm thinking specifically of the skink options. Are these old models that are more than likely going to be updated in the future? I would rather not start on some units to only find out that new ones are coming out in a year or two. Thanks for hearing me out. Glad to find this community!

    Legion of Sacrament 1000pts need help

    So, i'm entering my first tournament at the end of next week and I've come up with this list. What I need is for you guys to help me out and tell me if i need to change this. It looks light on dudes to me, but i could be wrong! Leader Arkhan the Black Necromancer Necromancer Battleline 10 Dire Wolves 30 Skeleton Warriors (spears) Other Corpse Cart (Unholy Lodestone) Should I split the wolves to two 5 man groups so I can hold more objectives? Am I missing something that i overlooked? Any and all help appreciated!
  9. Hi there, I am a new player, only played 5 games and i have lost all of them. I am playing tzeentch and my opponents are playing stormcast and seraphon. I run LoC, Blue Scribes, Herold, Gaunt Summoner, Shaman, 9 Skyfires, 3x 10 pinks, 30 blues and Balewind Vortex. I have no experience in war gaming and my opponents have played for 20+ years. Would anyone be able to help me with some tips or tactics that will help me beat these guys? I have learned i pretty much never want to take the first turn so i can let them come to me and soften them up with spells before moving in to take the objective from them. I need to keep my units spread out so bastiladon doesnt ****** snakes on them. Keep my casters out of combat with bubbles of horrors and skyfires are only really good in combat on my turn so they get the rerolls to hit and wound. Dont bother trying to kill the bastiladon it has a mortal wound save and takes too much attention. There was even talk of him bringing the Kroknado combo which i asked him to hold fire on till i at least win one game! Thanks for any help here guys, its much appreciated.

    New Seraphon Player- List Advice Please

    Greetings fellow lizard people! I recently acquired a second hand, former Lizardman army and thought I would take a stab at these Seraphon beasties I've heard so much about. Below is the army list which works out to be 120 points short of 2000 and I come to you with cap (Aztec headdress) in hand for advice. What artifacts would you recommend for the heroes (I'm liking Great Rememberer for the Slaan's command trait but open to others)? Are the models I have going to synergise well? Is there something weak/pointless that you would drop? Is there an auto-include for this army? (Saurus Astrolith Bearer perhaps?) Should I be choosing between a lot of Skinks or a lot of Saurus or is it good to have heaps of both? How to spend the last 120 points? Save them for summoning? Saurus Sunblood- I like this guy's punch in melee and gives me a 3rd hero Another 20 Skinks? 10 x Chamelon Skinks? Drop 10 x Saurus Warriors and go for the Shadowstrike Starhost battalion? Re-jig the list and add some Stormcast as allies? Other ideas? Strategy wise I see the Kroxigor, Salamanders and Skink Handlers operating as an independent force on my flank, the Saurus Warriors hold the middle while the Saurus Guard protect the Slaan. The Skinks run around looking for objectives and generally harassing. The Ripperdactyls probably die after an alpha-strike on a suitable target and the Stegadon does Stegadon things (stamps on stuff I guess). Thanks in advance for any help!!! Army list below: Allegiance: SeraphonLeadersSlann Starmaster (260)- General- Trait: Great Rememberer Skink Starpriest (80)Battleline10 x Saurus Guard (200)- Seraphon Battleline40 x Saurus Warriors (360)- Clubs40 x Skinks (200)- Meteoric Javelins & Star Bucklers20 x Skinks (120)- Meteoric Javelins & Star BucklersUnits3 x Skink Handlers (40)3 x Ripperdactyl Riders (140)3 x Kroxigor (160)- 1x Moonhammers2 x Salamanders (80)BehemothsStegadon (240)Total: 1880 / 2000
  11. Hello! I am new to this wargaming thing, and i really like the look of the aelfs.I don't know what i want from the hobby since i never played a game, but i thing i just want a great looking army that is not TOO hard to pain, cuz every time i watch a battle report i fall asleep. I think aelfs are cool mostly cuz of their dragons (since a lot of miniatures are small, a big centerpiece dragon lords help a lot) and because i think i can make some fun lore from them. So if you would like to take your time to build me an army, These are my requirements : 1- Needs a dragon.(dread or high elf one, if you want to recommend a wood elf (wanderers?) list, that cool as well ill probs just repaint it(i think green isn't that bad) 2-Needs to stuck wiht one theme (basically one of the three factions from the WFB, all though The witchelves alliance box (the one with the cauldron) is okay in every list since i can jsut repaint the armor on them 3-Not too expansive (basically keep it beetwen 500-1000ish points, just want a cool army wiht a centerpiece (OPTIONAL!)4- I would like the size of the models,( head to toe), especially on the dragon dudes! THANKS!
  12. After hours of tweaking and pulling hair i've finally come up with a Ironjawz list with allies i think cover the most ground. I tried (bcs i wanted) to create a list that wasn't all Ironjawz but still could use the Ironfist Battalion to give it a little bit more "flavour" you know im sayin? WARNING: Please note im not looking for an ALL IRONJAWZ list here. I've already done that so just Allied forces or a mixed Destruction list. Thank you for considering this Ma Green Boyz! Every crazy idea you may have thought of: i want it! Leaders Orruk Warchanter (80 Megaboss on Maw-Krusha (460) - General - Command Trait : Bestial Charisma (The moonclan needs it) - Artefact : Daubing of Mork (well...it's nice!) Orruk Megaboss (140) - Artefact : Destroyer (Obvious chest) Orruk Weirdnob Shaman (120) Units 40 x Moonclan Grots (260) -Pokin Spears & Moon Shields - Bad Moon Icon - Allies 3 x Grot Fanatics (100) - Allies 5 x Orruk Brutes (180) 10 x Orruk Brutes (360) 3 x Orruk Gore Gruntas (140) Battalions Ironfist (160) Total: 2000 / 2000 Allies: 360 / 400 Thoughts on this list - In my opinion what Ironjawz lack is field presence and the best way to do this (within the 400 points) is to ask the moonclan for da help. You can use them as a BIG blocker in the front preventing charges if you don't get that 2 turns in a row charging madness. keeping your Orruk Brutes ready for the charge behind them. And one other thing is you get a big blob that is above 20+ and in my opinion is more "adapted" to many other lists you're facing. Am i wrong? am i looking at the wrong picture here? you tell me! So basically im trying out an allied force to my already strong Ironjawz army but it's actually harder than i thought to fill the gap with only 400 and still go out a champion. Anyone here playtested an allied force with Ironjawz and felt like: this is it!!? Basically im looking for help here. please for Da mork and Da Gork?
  13. Hi everyone! Ive played some AoS before with Stormcast and Seraphon. But now i got my eyes on then boy'z! when starting from 0...how would you begin your journey with the jaw's? For 1000p? And how would you later build that list to 2000p? Any formations you like? If you have time please explain HOW to play aswell with the army. I think i got the hang of it but all help will be much needed i think! I have not yet played with the new GH17. How have they changed? Are they better or worse then before? All information will be greatly helpful! And by the end of next week i might got some new models to start my next project! Cheers!
  14. I am planning on getting into the hobby in the next few months, so right now i am choosing an army for myself. From what i heard, fyreslayers very extremely expansive before, but with the new SC set i think they are pretty reasonable (well, GW's sense of reasonable) I love the models but i am not sure how can I paint the big lizard. I love the color scheme on GW's website: https://www.games-workshop.com/en-IE/Auric-Runesmiter-on-Magmadroth I think i can get the black effect with a abbadon black, eshin grey drybrush, but as for the fires i am completely lost. Also please do not suggest a air-brush, I just want to use regular brushes. Since i am worried about the size of the model, if anyone can give me the measurements of him that would be great. Thx!

    How can i start with sylvaneth?

    Well, choosing an army is REALLY hard. I liked Seraphon at first, but the normal warrior model is just awful to me. Fyreslayers are great but i don't like their size and they are a bit hard to paint. Now i am into sylvaneth.They get a pretty nice centerpiece in the SC box and i love the models I am wondering if any of you have any tips on how to expand the SC box or painting i would be really greatfull for your help. Also how many citadel woods do I need for a sylvaneth wyldwood?
  16. HI! I am new to this wargaming thing and i looked at the new Warherds Bloodfeast Gorgers box set and thought- 'cool!' They seem fun to play and paint but i am not sure how can i work off from the box set to a little army (I am looking for something from 500 points to 1000) I don't want anything TOO competitve, and I would prefer if I kept the Breyherd theme (wont mind If there are some monsters, but something like chaos warrior would suck) Also can you "try" to make it not crazy expansive? Any painting tips would be welcome as well (currently i just have the standard starting painting box set and some space marines to practice on) Thanks!
  17. HELLO everyone! I am currently in the painful process of choosing my first army (never played a wargame before) and well, spiderfangs always looked cool,but they were simply too expansive too justify With the new Box set for them they are way easier to collect, so I guess I am set on them.(i love the idea of big centrepieces and anaknaroch is 16cm long!) If you have any advice on playing them. as well as next purchases i should invest in, please leave them below but i am most interested in painting.I bought the starting paint set but i have no idea how to paint grots or any color schemes. Thank you for reading.
  18. Hey everyone, I am choosing my first (ever, this is my first wargame) army right now, and i was wondering how many points does the start collecting! tzeentch give me? Also could fit a Lord of change get to around 1000 points with it? And which book should I buy first?Should I get the generals handbook and just use the normal chaos abilities or should I buy the tzeentch book and save my money to buy the Handbook 2 weeks later? Thank you!
  19. I found an army painter Black Primer for a cheaper price then the GW one, so I was wondering do they have the same effect?
  20. PowerCreep

    What is a better purchase for Khorne?

    I have a quick question. If I buy the starter box for aos and want to expand my Khorne to 1k points, is it worth it to take a bloodthirster, soul grinder or start collecting Daemons Of Khorne?

    Need help-first army death

    Hey guys I have a question about painting and army building. Currently i can't choose between Start collecting flesheater-courts or start collecting beastclaw raiders. I love both army's looks and playing style, all though i am not sure which one is harder to paint. I know the points for both armies. If it's not too much, it would be reeally nice if you could show me the size of the miniatures (picture) in comparison to a hand. Also which army is the more expansive to collect, because BCR have a very small model count, while FEC units can be converted to a bunch of things (start collecting box alone has a huge amount of choices.) Thank you for reading!
  22. Hey, guys just a quick question: what is the size of KO? I am a new player and I have a problem with figuring out miniature sizes, especially KO size because my store doesn't have them on display yet. If you could show me one arkanaut beside a pot of base paint (or if possible besides a primaris space marine). Also if possible could you show me a size of one of their ships (in comparison to a hand) Thanks!
  23. Hey guys currently I am stuck beetwen BCR and FEC. Both look AWESOME and fun to paint, andi was wondering which is better right now. (also could you give a picture of an of them (in comparison to a hand))
