  1. Pseudonyme’s NON-PLAYABLE WARBAND AI WARCRY ADD-ON (for chaotic beasts and other mindless hordes) Dear fellow wargamers, The goal of this add-on is to add a simple AI to control a Non-Playable Warband (referred as NPW in the rest of the ruleset), to control chaotic beasts and other mindless hordes (Squigs, ghouls, ghosts….) in your regular games of Warcry. In addition to the AI, each NPW has their own specific rules to add flavor and hopefully « fun ». This add-on is aimed at people who only have 1 friend who has only 1 warband, for people who wants to use models they shelved for whatever reasons and for people like me who are always looking for an excuse to buy more minis. DISCLAIMER This entire rule set might content traces of sarcasm and trolling. Please take everything personally. Also, english is not my first language, so if you have any suggestions on phrasing, please comment on this topic. WHY THIS ADD-ON When I first read the chaotic beast rules of activation, I was rather disappointed because it was just giving another option to the players, not that there is anything wrong with that, but I’d have rather preferred something uncontrollable, the game itself trying to decimate both players. This idea came to mind after transposing multiplayer deployment for 3 players and reading an AoS White dwarf battleplan with an AI for Troggoths. And because I played Zombicide Black Plague, I came to the conclusion that there should be a simple way to do an AI for at least the non-human non leader models. WHAT THIS ADD-ON IS NOT A solo mode for Warcry. Yes, the following rules could be easily adapted in a survival mode with the maximum of turns to survive / maximum enemy waves to kill, but this is not the intent. A full solo/coop would require more in depth AI, at least to control the leaders and specific scenarios (Warhammer quest in a sense) and specific victory conditions. Ok, ok, ok. If you really insist, the specific scenarios at the end could be played solo or cooperatively with a couple of tweaks here and there, that might appear in a future version of this ruleset.

  3. Just a general topic about tactics, background and photos about the Iron Golems Warcry warband. Personally they appeal to me greatly, so I'm looking forward to what the community can produce!
  4. The cards: Seems like it's possible to play a few variants of this warband, ranging from a more elite grave guard to a mass of skeletons. While I'm personally leaning towards a healthy mix, I can't but imagine what can be done with Vanhel's and a blob of warriors. Another interesting point is Necrotic Siphon. I might not have fully grasped the whole wild dice mechanic, but getting a fairly high triple doesn't seem that rare. Having guaranteed damage should let you play more conservative in that combat phase, even if it's just 3-4. Obviously, the ressurrect can be very situational, but bringing back a grave guard with 2h-weapon next to a juicy target might outshine the Siphon. Really looking forward to trying these guys out. Worried about the low speed, but I feel it might be manageable with some creative ability shenanigans.
  5. Had a few games now with the Kharadron, and I have to say they’re a flexible warband, with some real hitting power. Few observations: Balloons. These guys are a must, they add mobility and tactical options to an otherwise slow (although ranged) warband. They have won the majority of games, just by being able to be where they need to be (including out of reach). In terms of armaments, since there are so many options: I took melee orientated riggers (rivet guns and aethermatic saws) for a while, but they are relatively squishy when it comes to some of the new menaces on the block, so my preferred load out is now at least one of the drill launcher. Means you can still pack a punch, and dance around the edges as you need to, without risking any so many meaty fists. The volleygun is too weak on balloonriders to make it worth it (though see arkanauts below!), and the grapnel launcher isn’t necessary because you already have the mobility if you need it; getting there quicker so you can shoot ... a grapnel launcher ... is underwhelming. Skyhooks are ok, just find drills generally better. The difference between riggers and wardens is absolutely minimal, I never found myself wanting to use timed charges over rampage, even when I could. So I go with riggers because they’re cheaper. Leaders: Tempting to take an endrinrigger to address the issue above, but honestly I just think there’s too much risk attached. My personal favourite is the Grundstok Thunderer leader, though the arkanaut one is ok in a pinch, especially if you need points. The Thunderer’s is powerful at range, and tough enough to hold the line. The KO leader triple is really good, and gets used a lot, so keep your leader with some powerful gunners too. Arkanauts: the basic guys do what you would expect them to - screen and speed bump for your guns. Even the skypike ones, who might get a decent hit in first, are only a delaying tactic and I only upgrade if I have 15 spare points. The skyhook guns are a bit meh for me, too much for not enough, but I have to say the volleygun arkanauts are little stars, especially if you take multiples. I have taken as many as 4, and the criticals can really start stacking up. These are definitely not to be overlooked. Thunderers: These are a mixed bag in my experience. The aethercannons are capable of big damage, and are generally reliable - benefit the most from the leader triple too, so worth keeping at least one near. The fumigator is quite versatile, because it has no minimum range, so you can use it against whatever your target is not (range/melee). The decksweeper is ok, better against chaff, but I find myself consistently not taking mortars, and the standard rifle is just bad. abilities: Doubles (get converted into triples if I haven’t already got at least one!) are mainly used for Rush (since onslaught no longer affects guns), with fortitude and drillbill being situational need only. Triples - Fight for profit is great, Keep your distance is great, and of course Respite is sometimes handy. Feels like triples is where it’s at for KO. Quads are just Rampages - always awesome: get to range, then open fire. Anyway, just some thoughts in case anyone else is using them - as usual, only my experience, ymmv.
  6. Hey there, Couldn't help but notice we don't have a Slaanesh discussion thread yet. I've been playing them a lot, and I think they're pretty fun. Fiends and Daemonettes are solid units and work well together, but there's some mounted units in there you can run in a thematic force as well, and they've all got great movement. I made a faction rundown video for them in case anyone's on the fence about taking them for a spin. https://youtu.be/qvHM2HFMZKk
  7. The Daughters of Khaine are ready to bring bloodshed in the name of Khaine to the fighting pits of Eightpoints. Our Roster consists of the Khinerai, Melusai, Witch Elves and Sisters of Slaughter in all flavours. The Daughters of Khaine come from the Lands of Ulgu, as do the Chaos Cultist Warband "Corvus Cabal". So far we know the Daughters of Khaine as an army of many Witch Elves or Sisters of Slaughter backed up by offensive or defensive buffs or an army composition that rely on Melusai which makes them more elite. In Warcry the fast Khinerai Heartrenders and Lifetakers might me good for a quick grab on an objective. Warcry has only three turns (except the players are tied on victory points), so I personally see great potential of the Daughters, because of their speed and killing power. They are more of a glasscannon style though, but we will know more if we see the statlines of them. What du you think of the Daughters of Khaine Warband for Warcry?
  8. The Tale of the Twisted Oak The forests of the Harrowmark are endless, though the touch of human change can be seen here and there. The woods are pockmarked with villages and levelled where meagre farms scratch out a living. Evil and monstrous creatures thrive in such a place, lurking underneath the forest’s canopy. Wolves, ghouls, bandits, and worse. There is a sense of horror there, or more accurately, a sense of encroaching dreadful melancholy, an all-consuming sense of loneliness. A perpetual Autumn settled across the region, so long ago that not even the Graveroot Sylvaneth could remember when the woods were young. For time immemorial, the trees stood not growing nor dying and not a single sapling could be seen by those brave or foolish enough to venture deep in the woods. But then, the Necroquake came and in its wake the raging wild magic of the Arcanum Optimar. Weather- and battle-worn Spellhunters came, hunting for rogue Endless Spells. Few returned from the deepest woods. But those that did, reported things unheard-of in the Shyishian underworld of the Harrowmark. They claimed that somewhere deep in the abyssal woodland of dead trees and tangled undergrowth, a Tree is born and growing, feeding on a knot of sorcerous energy seeping up from the soil below. On flying ships and through Realmgates, the rumour is spreading and both the learned and the fool, from far and wide, speculate on the origin of such energy. Some say it leaks from the hundreds of graves that permeate the Shyishian soil, thousands of souls flowing into the Tree’s heartwood. Others claim it comes from a hidden Stormvault, long forgotten beneath the dead forests. Yet others claim the Tree is twisted and corrupted by Chaos magic and is attracting all manner of dark creatures, who venerate and worship it as an altar to the Dark Gods. Some even theorise that the energy of the Necroquake itself is trapped forever in the dead wood. The servants of Nurgle whisper the Tree is one of Horticulus Slimux’s dreaded Black Oaks. When it will bear fruit, they say, Rotigus Rainfather will come back to aid Nurgle’s favoured Gardener in his feud with the Lord of Death. Then there are those telling that the Tree grows over the burial site of a great Spellhunter, his weapons and arcane devices poking out of the twisted wood. For others, a powerful sorceress was cursed and turned into the Tree, her soul-stuff raging to be free. As the rumours spread, the mad and the brave once again dare sailing the stormy skies above the Harrowmark and tread its abyssal gloom. Who can say what they want and what they will find? How many of them will be lost forever? ~ 🕱 ~ We are planning to embark on a new adventure in the Harrowmark. Warbands will venture into the unknown, yet familiar, dark of the endless forests. We will be using Warcry this time, with a few house rules - mostly around Campaign Quests that will be tailored for warbands exploring the Harrowmark, instead of the Bloodwind Spoil.
  9. May as well add this discussion to the growing pile. These guys will probably be my favorite warband out of the gate just like the eels are my favorite models. Can't wait to try out an all eel list here too 😉
  10. One of my sons is into Seraphon so I made some WarCry rules for fun and thought I'd share. -- Edit: Thanks to @Revlid's feedback and some play-testing, Ive updated these and am happy that they aren't game-breaking. They are now in BETA status. I know GW has brought out Seraphon rules, but I'm keen to run with these as well because I prefer them for narrative games. They are what I call Lore-Abiding (😋) which means that fighters' movement, offence, defence, and abilities are relative to their AoS stats. I think this makes them match up better to Warhammer lore (fluff text). For example: Skinks should be as tough as Grot Stabbas; Suarus Knights should be as armoured as Saurus Guard; Saurus Warriors should be better at attacking than Skinks; etc. -- Thanks to https://waywalkerstudios.com/ for runemarks and blank fighter cards. Also, thanks to Games Workshop for the decades of awesome. Disclaimer: I haven't actually played WarCry yet, let alone battle tested this warband so it is definitely in ALPHA status. Please feel free to provide feedback and ask questions. WarCry - Seraphon (Lore-Abiding) - v0.1.pdf
  11. So this lovely warband have been announced, and I gotta say it looks as good as the untamed beasts! I would be excited to play them in the future for sure, and when I have some extra money I believe this is going to be my first non starter set warband I pick up.
  12. Since this is a Warcry-specific project I figured I would start by posting this here. I wanted to build and paint a Warcry Stormcast warband, and because Vanguard got released first, that’s what I started with. But I wanted to make the modeIs look a bit different, so I threw some kitbashed parts together for my leader, and swapped Sequitor heads without helms for the traditional Vanguard helms. I’ve just finished the first three models: the Hunter Prime (sword swapped to give him the “Blade of Heroes” relic in an obvious way), a Gryphound, and an Aetherwing. I’ll post the remainder as I go, and though I don’t move fast, Stormcast don’t take too long at least. The remaining Gryphounds and Aetherwings will all be painted to look like different, real animals. The Gryphound here was basically a test, browns could be a lot of things, and the Aetherwing was painted like a gyrfalcon. Enjoy!
  13. Hi everyone so I'm going to try and chronicle the growing numbers of my 2020 Age of Sigmar project. I have really got into Warcry in the last few months but seeing the new starter set for Slaves I had to pick them up to have a Warcry themed Age of Sigmar army. First time collecting more for hobbying sake but dam these models were great. I got stuck into them and in my hurry didn't take many progress pics but going to post some pics for thoughts and feedback. Even suggestions on what to add and what you think would suit the flavour I'd be happy to listen too, ranting aside here's a few pics and again feedback is much appreciated. (Bases needs finished up) I will get some unit close ups when basing is done too to add, and hopefully remember to update as I reinforce them.
  14. Hi I don't suppose anyone has 2 plastic stormvernin models spare they would be happy to sell? One with shield, one without (or mounted on its back)?
  15. It just seems right to have a Cypher Lord warband page seeing as they are coming out alongside the starter set. Discuss any ideas or things you guys want to talk about!

  20. Event Title: The Lavafall Riots Event Author: Nuno M Calendar: Events US Event Date: 25/01/2020 - 10:30 AM to 08:00 PM Hi everybody, I will be running a Narrative Event at Alpha Omega Hobby near Boston MA, USA, Saturday, January 25th. Registration and event details at: https://forms.gle/SiSZH8fSijTaKh2E8 This 1-day narrative event will consist of parallel games of Age of Sigmar (3 games) and Warcry (5 games). Players can participate either with an AoS army or a Warcry warband. Gangs of warriors will fight as mercenaries, over an urban landscape, trying to take over territory and clearing the streets of wild endless spells and rampaging monsters. On their way, they will fulfill missions for their employers, and gain coin to spend on espionage or supplies. Throughout the battles, mercenaries can be contracted, units will become veterans and accumulate abilities, and find out what's behind the riots of the Lavafall district. THE SPIRIT OF THE EVENT This event runs on the themes of city fights, revolution, charges against barricades and lots of backstabbing plots. Think "Gangs of New York" or "Les Miserables", or even Western movies and "Pirates of the Caribbean". So get those Cities of Sigmar armies out there! Please register your interest as soon as possible (even if you cannot confirm yet), so we can plan tables and terrain, and accommodate as many people as possible.
