I thought so. Still 2 units of 40 could get clunky to handle on the table. Especially on round bases.

Personally I don't really need any new Deathrattle units.
Non-human skeletons would be rad but besides that what does a Skeleton army need more besides maybe archers?

As is, it's pretty fucking lame that all three Arachnarok loud-outs cost the same. There's no reason to ever run the howdah-less version, and the flinger is basically worthless. The Weak Lobber Arachanrok would be a nice alternate to just taking multiple Shaman for redundency's sake, while a Weak Lobber on Gigantic Spider would give the faction a nice mobile war-machine. The only thing is that the Weak Lobber's basically got to be weaker than a real Lobber because of the mobility of the rest of the army. Or at least, I suspect it would end up that way regardless.

If General's Handbook 2 doesn't tweak at least the cost of the three Arachnaroks, I doubt we'll ever get anything though.

I'd take anything, really. Because a single 18 inch 4+, 3+, -, 1d3 is just trash. And especially if you're coding the bonus effect to the Flinger actually inflicting wounds.

Is there any precedent in AoS for "freeze" mechanics that instead of impeding the Hit of the enemy result in impeding movement? Like remove the damage entirely and just have anything hit suffer a 2d6 penalty to it's Move. The Spiderfangs are already hyper-mobile, but the ability to stick a unit in place would be a nice little bit of fluffy crunch.

Hello fellow AoS players!

I have just recently gotten into AoS and am currently in the process of painting my first minis.

Obviously, I am not very good at any sort of detail painting or list building but I thought I would post my favorite so far. C+C is absolutely encouraged.

Also, I would like to ask for some advice for my 1000 point army that I'm making. I have been searching around some of the handbooks and this is what I have so far.

Allegiance: Order

Caradyran On Frostheart Phoenix (260)

10 x Phoenix Guard (200)
10 x Swordmasters (200)
5 x Reavers (160)
5 x Reavers (160)

Total: 980/1000

I don't post a lot because I feel like I cant really contribute to any meaningful discussion but I would like to say that seeing the mini's painted here has really inspired me to try and get better at painting!

Sorry for the crappy photo, my camera is not great.

Those new armies might be designed at the same time. Maybe a whole new line of shadow elves is being prepped and the Shadowspire booster pack is just the first release we see of that. It's a bit of a misconception that if the studio does X then they can't do Y. Whole armies won't be on hold because of the design studio working on a project since that probably not how the process works. Models are probably designed and created with X deadline and then their sales team decides when to release them. Maybe they have whole new armeis lying on the shelf waiting for a release in the coming year (overly optimistic of course).

Just to give some actual facts instead of speculation. All the 8th edition Elf armies were designed at the same time, however it took them 2 years or so to release everything.

>> No.52322820

A while lot of 'maybe' for being 'facts' anon.
Did YOU ask for a Shadowspire card game?
Are you still playing warhammer quest (I'm SURE the last release, which came be summed up as 'dump these shit character models that were not selling', FLEW off the shelves)?
The answer to both, for the VAST majority of AoS players is- no.
Because if you LIKE these kind of games, there are plenty of infinitely better, and infinitely cheaper, alternates.
You are playing AoS because you like TT wargame. If you wanted a boardgame, you would be playing THAT instead.

>> No.52322863

The only fact in that whole statement was that all the 8th edition Elf armies were designed at the same time.

And since we don't have sales statistics for the boardgames, we don't know how well they are doing. Although when I spoke to a GW rep at a B2B gameshow last year he said they were doing quite well.

And no, I didnt specifically ask for Shadowspire. It might be a cool game and if the product is right I might buy it. But I think it's a fallacy that because we get Shadowspire we don't get feature/army X for AoS.

Maybe you shouldn't have put females in obviously male armour.

I like Nurgle too but let's not pretend he isn't very well catered to

Naurgle waifus when?

Fuck off back to your tree, catfucker.

Your cosplay king is shit.

Your god is a fucking moon faced woman.

Your tree is a manlet for a world tree, basically a stump with branches.

You know what that's a reasonable boob plate and assuming the torso and legs are just muscle shaped armor like the rest of the stormcast, I think she'll work fine

Unless he's running the basic starter set, he should be fine.

Also especially if you managed to do that by running black orcs since they aren't nearly as scary as brutes

Sounds like a pretty good decision, desu. Better than having a dead faction with no future collecting dust.

Unless you traded them for Tomb Kings or Dwarves...

Brets are a legitimately good army in AoS tho

new dorf ships confirmed as transports, movement changes as per how many models are onboard

>> No.52324524

On the warhammer twitch, they just said a little about the Overlords.

Ironclads and Frigates are transports and can be overloaded with models, in which case their speed goes down. Skyriggers never overload a transport, since they just grapple onto the sides.

The Ironclad has so many rules that they had to drop the font size to fit it all on one page.

I'd love to get some Nurgle Warriors who can compete in apperance with the ones from Avatars of War.
Wouldn't mind getting some Nurgle Marauders or Nurgle Knights either for that matter.

Slaanesh for waifus and Nurgle for grandpas
