In terms of models, eshin and moulder are desperately in need of an upgrade with some bad & goofy models, but none seems likely. Skyre is a mixed bag, they've got some nice plastic kits but a lot of the weapon teams are in resin. Pestilens is IMO in the best place with a lot of nice plastic (pestilens players still want new plague monks, but that's just how things are in wargaming). Clanrats/stormvermin etc. look great, no issues there.

>> No.71929426

I hope that "Warstomper", "Gatebreaker" and "Krakeneater" aren't the actual names of the units and that they don't look like they do in those images. I don't want a guy holding a fucking boat with idiots inside looking like he's about to chomp down on a fucking hotdog, that sounds stupid as hell.

They have a very big range, but like every army like that a lot of models are very old or resin. You can either play one of the big clans or mixed skaventide. If you choose a clan your choices are Skyre (elite, high risk high reward "high tech" weapons), Pestilens (glass cannon hordes) or Verminus (still hordes, but different flavour and more durable). Moulder and Eshin should be avoided as most of their models are very, very old and shitty.

Playing mixed offer you the most versatility in list building, as you can take whatever you want and still do great. In general you'll want 3 units of 20 clanrats each for battleline and remember that Skaven reward big units so you'll want to max out your actual hammers, be them plague monks, stormvermins or Stormfiends. Also remember to take support. Plague monks get a lot better with a plague fornace, Stormfiends or weapon platforms become beastly with a skyre character to buff them. Verminlords are very good in basically each variant.

Look up if you manage to find pic related. It was this christmas battleforce and it's very, very good for starting. Take two if you can.

One of both. Grey seer is amazing as a general, plague fornace is great for supporting monks. Decide what you want depending on what you want to focus. Considering you'll have a verminlord making a warpseer and a plague furnace is a pretty good combination.

You're confusing people buying, painting, and playing with models with people shitposting. Most people don't buy into brand new armies every month. Nobody here actually plays, though, except Rotbark anon and as such that issue never comes up to these leeches.

Skaven turned out to be the galaxy brain choice. They're endearing characters as hilarious, cute and furry, evil, ridiculously incompetent antagonists. Combined with them being original enough for GWs lawyers to not feel like they needed a rebranding their roster has survived the test of time pretty intact. The Pestilens and Eshin stuff is pretty dated, but the rest of their sculpts hold up with the modern shit in terms of detail and dynamism. I have a feeling that they'll survive the transition to TOW, too, unless they do something pretty crazy with it (different scale like a Warmaster reboot, limited faction roster, etc). In other words, they play well, your collection is safe from being squatted, and you may only have new releases to look forward to regarding the missing bits of the roster.

Khorne is one of the higher tier armies that places pretty well, so depending on what you mean by "Advice" here are three potential outcomes.
1. You mean "Advice" on building an EFFECTIVE army. If you want this I suggest looking at some top placing lists and editing what is in them to fit your personal playstyle or model preference.
2. You mean "Advice" as in stuff that's good for a new player to assemble/paint, as in it's not too difficult but difficult enough to improve. In this case I suggest getting some marauders (or bloodreavers or w.e the marauder equivalent in Khorne is I don't know Khorne super well). Not only are they a pretty core unit but they also offer you a lot of opportunities to try different painting techniques and styles as well as colors. Most armies will have a large block of these guys if they take them at all, meaning any mistakes you make or models that are painted differently because you changed your mind on a color will still fit in fine as a group.
3. You mean "Advice" as in general Warhammer advice. This I will leave to others, as I doubt this is what you were asking for.

They're probably your best bet, yes. I'd say grab the Start Collecting box, a Lord and a Sorcerer Lord. That gives you pretty much everything you might want.

The Primarchs) without bringing them into the current game. But sure, it's not going to be exactly that but for AoS like GW said, it's going to be... I dunno, a Warmaster re-do? Yeah, sure.

>Does anything mention if Stormcast eat and how much?
Stormcast do eat yes. Neave Blacktalon mentioned in the First Mark book that although she requires less food than a normal person, she still needs to eat to survive. On the flipside, Hamilcar is shown to eat massive feasts for both sustenance and please. They are two different characters though and I wager that Hamilcar eating like a Saiyan is a personal choice.
>How long they march?
However long to takes to get to their battleground from the nearest city
>If they set up camps or just push through?
I'm not sure about large scale camps but Vanguard Stormcast have been shown to make campfires and sleep in caves while they are out in the field
> Do they have armourers who follow them and keep their equipment up to snuff?
For the basic armour I don't believe so outside of Azyr, since Sigmarite doesn't dull or ware unless it's been attacked, but presumably warmachines like the ballista need some tuning.
>Do they work with local forces?
Absolutely. Normally as leaders or heavy support
>How many are usually sent in?
It entirely depends on what the job they need doing requires. So like infiltrating a enemy fortress to sabotage wouldn't need much, while sieging a fortress would necessitate a larger force.

> Do they have armourers who follow them and keep their equipment up to snuff?
Sigmarite only becomes damaged through extraneous combat. One of the ways it can be repaired is through the Magic’s of a Relictor or one from the Sancrosant chamber

>Do they work with local forces?
Yes part of some of the stormcast’s missions in the early days was to find whatever refuge people found in the age of chaos and unite with them.

I actually have Hamilcar Champion of the Gods. Might give it a bit of a read. If you're saying that he may be more like Thor from the sagas with the feasting. Or it could just be GW being "BIG GUY EAT"

My idea with the marching and camps was wondering if it's like a Roman legion where they'd march for x amount of distance and then fortify. Would make sense if they did it that way. Then again, if you were superhuman you'd be able to march faster and longer without tiring.

Interesting stuff about their equipment. If they are marching and doing stuff elsewhere I'd imagine they need more than just arms and armour. If they eat less though they wouldn't need the tons of food required to feed an army, however.

As for their force composition it seems really skewed to them having huge numbers fighting at a time. Of course, this could be game/story segregation and just a scheme to sell more miniatures. Seems like it would make more sense to have a CoS army and supplement it with Stormcast for fluff's sake.

I'll also check out the black pyramid book. I really enjoy this type of stuff and really would like to add extra, more in-depth elements to campaigns.

>My idea with the marching and camps was wondering if it's like a Roman legion where they'd march for x amount of distance and then fortify. Would make sense if they did it that way. Then again, if you were superhuman you'd be able to march faster and longer without tiring
Early Realmgate wars were a lot of liberation and toppling citadels and strongholds it would make more sense that Stormcast took that role now that a beachhead is been established. Less than 10% of the mortal realms have been reclaimed from chaos. This tactic would probably be used by Hammers of Sigmar or any Host led by a lord ordinator. The latter raising a series of arcane bulwarks in an overlapping defense network or some such.

I’ve always gotten the impression that Stormcast whenever they appear in the books are usually a couple of hundred strong. There is a tactic from the Realmgate wars of Knights Excelsior when they fought a massive warherd was to initially fight with a smaller force until a certain point in the battle in which they would herald their position to azyr and summon greater, fresher forces alongside the effect of being teleported in bolts of lighting

Points don't matter. Collect what you like and when you like it, but exercise impulse control and sit on an idea for a week or two before pulling the trigger.
After 2 weeks the new and shiny appeal is gone and you won't waste time and money on things you didn't like.
I wouldn't force myself to paint things or buy things that I wasn't having fun with. The hobby is to have fun, so if you're not having fun, change it up.

Are Idoneth Deepkin one dimensional in terms of playstyle? Is the same true for Ironjawz/Warclans?

>> No.71934671


I can't speak for deepkin as I don't have any but Ironjawz are fairly simple on paper but require a lot better play to get anywhere than say, Stormcast.

They aren't about complex synergies and whatnot, but rather good tactics and choices and serious damage when those things work out.

If Stormcast are the Ryu of AoS, then IJ's are the Zangief.

Attacking twice with 5 Ardboys looks powerful to you? If you want to play that kind of list you're better off with a fungoid+cauldron for itchy nuisance.

Use this list so you can play 2k earlier and understand why it's so bad. I'm guessing you haven't played a game at all? Check out honestwargamer, Warhammer weekly, etc videos on tomes to get some tips and comparisons to other armies if you can't play or test stuff now. Like...
>620 pts on battalions that suck
Lmao you're playing a 1.3k game against armies that are undercosted and probably summon shit for free. 1.3 Vs 2.5k

Roughly 2000 points of Nurgle though I wouldn't call the ragtag bunch of units I have a finished army.
About 600 points of Nighthaunt but I got bored of painting them so it'll probably stay 600ish points.
Technically 490 points of Gloomspite and I want to expand those to 1k eventually.
And an Akhelian King I bought before everyone had decided that eels were WAAC so I stopped collecting Deepkin because I didn't want to seem like a try-hard bandwagoner.
