Can we have a serious conversation about lesser played factions? I've really wanted to talk about my Fyreslayers list for the last few weeks but I can't find more than a single other person that plays them to have a conversation with. I'm sure that other people that play factions like Spiderfang's and Warherds would like to have serious conversations too.

Anyways, rant aside, here's my list for Fyreslayers that I've been trying to fine-tune for the last few weeks. I really want to bring the Vostarg Battalion which costs over 1600 points for the bare minimum units, so I don't have a lot of wiggle room with the remaining >400 points. Still, I wanna get some advice from the people here in what they would advise I should do.

Allegiance: Fyreslayers
Auric Runefather on Magmadroth (260)
Auric Runeson on Magmadroth (240)
- Ancestral War-axe
Auric Runemaster (80)

Otherwise, I think it may be dangerously hero heavy.

Age of Sigmar in general have a bad lore. First all novels in AoS hammered us with a fact that new EoT is upon us, godness of life confirmed that realm of life is done for (I assume that she should know better), then Archaon got his hands on continent sized dragon, then one of the seven remaining slanns died for good... and then it turned out that season of war was won by the order and according to the novel "Spear of Shadow" already a hundred years passed since season of war. Wat? How? Why? What kind of writing is this? It's even worse than EoT in WFB! How could you end season of war with Chaos steamrolling everyone and then declare that faction of Order won? This is what happens when writers wank Chaos too much and there are no one to keep them in check or at least tell them the plans for future.

They'd be a mercenary group able to play within any grand alliance but chaos.

We have the idea of theyr abilities quite defined:

>Kazuma

Could still magic items from enemies, but very limited. Actually decent in melee.

>Megumin

One use only spell that leaves Seraphon to shame. Would have a table for random effects, for shits and jiggles and looking back to Fantasy's 7th edition.

>Darkness

Nearly unable to deal damage, but tanky as fuck. Could use a taunt ability once per battle, forcing every unit withing 12 inches to try to charge her.

Has the old fantasy "Stupid" rule, also strong anti-demon and undead spells and healing.

What >>56361412 said.
To deal damage you will need to rely heavily on sinergy. Glottkin costs a lot but can do wonders for your army. Add Epidemius into the mix if you have enough points and enjoy your unkillable plaguebearers.

Mind tho that pure demon <mixed Nurgle.
Nurgle demons works GREAT when paired with mortal nurgle unit, so my suggestion is to start with demons and expand from there. Blightwars is a great starting point, pair it with a start collecting and you have a fully functional army.

I haven't decided what artifacts for each hero yet. However, I have been considering setting up my runeson as a mobile sniping platform by taking meteoric axe and the monster javelins. Otherwise, I might take Obsidian Coronet for the runefather to increase his aura to 26 inches. No idea what I'm gonna do for the other two yet.

The reason I'm so hero heavy is because I want to take Volstag Lodge and that requires a minimum of 4 heroes (Runemaster, Runefather, Runeson, and Battlesmith). I could potentially cut the grimwrath berzerker and runesmiter but I can't perfectly round out 2k points without them.

Vostarg Lodge (120)

Total: 1520 / 2000

This is essentially the bare minimum of the Vostarg Lodge battalion. Note, I need to take an extra unit of hearthguard berzerkers so I can't just combine each unit of five into one unit of ten. I want to be able to have some longer range shooting so I wanted to take ten Auric Hearthguards.

>>56359539
Obviously the vulkites get better when they're in groups of 20-30 but I have to take at least three different groups of ten for the battalion. If I want to bump those groups up I'm not going to end up close to two thousand points. The best that I'm thinking of doing is maybe dropping five of the Auric's and bumping the unit of 20 up to 30.

Honestly, I'm a little lost. I know that the list is a little hero heavy but I don't have a lot of options.

More progress on my doomwheel. Still need to do a second coat on the outer blade things to clear up the black smudgy bits... my paint was a bit too watery. Lots of second coats all around needed but the driver is coming together.

-i scupted the last hoof on my wargoat and just put on white primer. the peg in his nose wil be cut to length whe i attache the reins

-i'm strugling thats why i ask. i painted nothing but single models and a few warbands since 6th. painting so much of the same is kind of a grind and i want to build/paint other things. on the other hand, my army is starting to look like an actual army by now and i imagine how more cool it will be with more dudes. the 20 strong gor horde from next answer is soaking in thinner right now and i have collected enough new style shields to tie them in with te rest of the army

-i think it's cool to have models spanning the entire catalog citadel ever did, it brings variation and army's that don't all look the same with just a diverent paintjob. but some guy at a local gw i someties visit was talking bs about my 90's metal beastmen being obsollete and that it should be forbidden to play these old pieces of junk. the manager is total cool with it, he's a younger guy (30 something i think) and he is always interested about old gw shit both mini's and old rulebooks

It seems you're starting from t0 with "I'd like to play with Vostarg Lodge" - and so I'm sure you're sick of hearing how you should stop juggling 3 battalions, pick one, and run only massive regiments of vulkites with rainbow heroes.

Pointing out a Vostarg Lodge at 2k is an exercise in frustration, as any of its logical combinations all end up at like 2010 or 2020, or hanging at 1930 with everything costing 80. Even at those awkward points you have to give up something preposterous like having no runesmiter to deepstrike or being way too low on vulkites/bodies.

I guess I recommend:

Bare Minimum+
2nd Magsmiter
2nd Magson
and be like a fyreslayers monster mash that runs magbombs into the enemy and piles everything in when it dies, re-rolling wounds basically every hero phase all game, and half your 40-odd troops babysit objectives.

or

Bare Minimum+
Runesmiter
+20 to the one vulkite unit
+10 to the other vulkite unit
and just be a 1-drop 1930 army that always chooses who goes first and always gets its triumph roll.

Thank you for the in-depth response. I've been trying to talk to someone about this for a few weeks now to no avail.

What would you think about dropping the Magmasmiter all together, taking a 2nd Runefather and pumping one unit of vulkites to 30? I understand the loss of the deepstrike would hurt but I think that the movement rune could help with crossing the board quickly. With the warrior kinband you would get one turn of 115 axes flying down the board with re-rolling 1's to hit.

Essentially you're going into the game with the plan to:
1) force them to go first and move towards you or they risk getting out maneuvered for objectives
2) pop the movement runes, run up the board as quickly as possible, having a 50% chance to get a double turn (RIP lords of the lodge)
3) pop the axe runes and bombard his infantry with mass axes so that they're softened up for the inevitable...
4) CHARGE! Use either the rend rune (To clean up big monsters and heroes) or the hits rune (to clear out more infantry in close combat) and try to snowball the game from there.

Obviously, this is the optimal outcome for the game, but I don't think it's that unobtainable. You're a little more weak to massed shooting but I think that this is always going to be a weakness for Fyreslayers.

>> No.56371087

>>56370757
Vostard is really good IMO. The extra boosts to each of the runes turns them into super legit bonuses, especially the extra hits and extra rend ones.

I don't think that lords is good at all really. You can't use half of the effects of the battalion with the new rule of one that effects turn order.

Honestly, feel free to come up with a list that losses Vostarg. I think that one of the reasons I want to bring it is that I don't really wanna paint another 40 vulkites for a full-on Warrior Kin battalion axe fucking. If money/time was no issue for me I would probably keep that as my main FS force. As it is right now I have most of the pieces for Vostarg already made up and I kind of want to stick to that.

If GW sticks to it's Shadespire pricing of the units that you can bring in AOS then their FS unit might fit better into the Vostarg line up.

Honestly, it's just refreshing to talk lists about my favorite faction. I've loved the look of slayers ever since Fantasy and when they were released as an entire army in AoS I was ecstatic.

It's partly a momentum problem. I often get really busy and tired through work and other things that I end up not painting enough, but once I start it is easier to keep at it.

Really what I need to do is just practice with my airbrush more and then hammer these guys out. I know people often look down on airbrushes, but I find them fun to use and my 1000 point list has 93 models so an airbrush has a certain appeal at that volume.

Currently stuck on greenstuff to reconstruct some shoulders and fill gaps. I find sculpting really exhausting and it it has turned out really poorly every time I've done it. I've considered just buying some bulk kneadatite/avies and copper wire for armatures and just pure sculpting as practice, but sculpting is like a special level of hard for me.

When I was a child I was tested and it was found the nerves in my hands were severely underdeveloped, just above the level of cerebral palsy. I don't really know how much of it has lingered on to adulthood, but painting and sculpting for me feels physically more demanding than it seems for most people

Assemble the chart as a Celestial Hurricanum, the General on foot with the standart and take the leftover models from the Hurricanum to build a Wizard.
Beyond that I'd recommend getting some cannons and a General on Gryphon. Especially that last one is amazing. He's cheap as chips both in cash and points, very flexible and has a brutal statline.

From the interview of combat phase with JReynolds.announced there would be a few new novels:

-Black Pyramid, the sequel to Plague Garden, which sees the founding of a city.

-Short stories of Eight Lamentations. A couple, one of then focused in Roggen prior to eight lamentations.

-A companion novel for Nagash: Undying King, apparently. Also, N:UK will have a trade release, from what I understood.

I like your idea about keeping the father on foot, that gives way more lee-way when it comes to pointing out the battalion. I think that I will eventually expand my FS and do something similar to this. The one change I would have would be to maybe have the runeson on foot instead of the runefather. Seeing as the RS has a pretty decent ranged setup you could potentially keep him in the back firing while the rest of your dudes tear shit up.

Honestly, I just want to bring more attention to Fyreslayers in general. They have the potential to be so cool. I think I might try to start some more discussion about them in future threads.

If you are playing just one game and you know what you are playing against, yeah, but in a tournament and the like, where you don¡t know what you will get it is a big advantage as you'll never have useless things.

Imagine you have things that deal mortal wounds and you face a Slaves to Darkness army, those mortal wounds are wasted in them. If instead of having brought whatever is dealing moral wounds, ou could have summoned something with rend. Basically you are exchanging tactical flexibility for the chance of failing the summoning roll.
