Why are all Norscans/Chaos Warriors like this? Remember reading this story of Khorne telling a Norscan chieftain to eat his child to restore his vitality, and the man actually did it. Didn't even bother killing his child before he began eating him. There's also that chaos jarl that tore his child out of a slave woman's stomach and ate it in front of her because he thought it'd be funny. It honestly seems like such a society would be incapable of raising the next generation or forming a society. They're worse at raising children than either Skaven or Beastmen, who can at least see the value of "having" a next generation. They should just be evil, ultra powerful, lone wolves who abandon their young to the wilds, kinda like many lizard species.

SLA Resin printing. You're essentially using the same materials mini companies use. But instead of a nozzle printing layers you have a build plate submerged in a vat of resin printing fine details at incredibly thin layers through UV light. A lot of the major SLA printers like the Anycubic Photon can be gotten for under £200. You can essentially pirate minis and the price to print is in pennies. A full 10 man squad of Dwarves will cost maybe a quid worth of Resin.

'Tis a sad day, fellow Dawi. I miscalculated. I led three armies to crush the massive Waaagh! of Grimgor Ironhide, with King Thorgrim, Grombrindal, and a brave Rune-Lord approaching from three sides. I expected to have enough movement left to retreat should try to fight them one-on-one, but due to some quirk of terrain, he managed to corner the Runelord...
While the ground was strewn with green-skinned corpses and soil turned to wet mud from their filthy blood, the Runelord fell. Even though his army was the weakest of the three throngs, it dealt such a blow, that remainders of Grimgor's armies were wiped out with such ease, as if he was a regular goblin raider.
Brave Runelord was the last to fall, in fact, fighting Grimgor and a hundred orcs all alone, even after his army fell.

Honest question: I've seen a few people claim 7e is as shit as 8e, lore-wise, and that 6e is the best edition for fluff. But reading through 6th, I'm not impressed. The attempt to make Fantasy grimdark 40k is hamfisted and falls flat, and most of the good fluff is just repeated again or expanded on in 7e. There's dumb shit but no more than you'd find in pretty much any armybook and it ditches the grimdark bullshit, also continuing with the RPG and Storm of Chaos, and even then it seems a way better starting point to add in old material you may like (gnomes, Malal, Celt Albion, etc.) rather than 6e.

Mantic is affordable, but a bit hit and miss with their sculpts Mantic plz release the damn verminkin for KoW already. Warlord Miniatures have some affordable multipart kits even for non-humans, and then there's always the Perry Miniatures humans.
Norba Miniatures and MOM miniatures have some nice models too, but their ranges are rather limited at least for the time being.
You can also make some nice finds from Reaper Miniatures for characters, unit champions and single entities, and I recommend looking up D&D miniatures too, especially Nolzur's.
The 9th Age forums also have some model suggestions put together into one post for each army.
Going 3rd party takes alot of time digging stuff up, good luck on your way.
Fug, feelsbadman. If there are people who play 8th, WAP army books are mostly compatible with those rules, so there's that at least. You can ask if they'd be fine with it.
Myself I have only two opponents, or actually three but he barely plays, and the two are newbies I've essentially taught into WAP. I discovered it right after running them their first introductory game of 8th, so it wasn't too late.

Not him, but I like it as a dark fantasy world. I don't like Warhammer as an ultra grim hopeless world where every day is spent in pointless misery. Warhammer is at its best when it's the early modern period but slightly shittier because magic and monsters. Bretonnia's 6e book is some of the worst garbage ever established in Warhammer, where the average peasant is a disgusting mutant that lives in grinding starvation poverty and 90% of their wages are taken by their lords. I don't need things to be bright and sunny, I just don't like the turn for FULL SPEED AHEAD WARHAMMER 40,000 GRIMDARK that it took in 6th edition to take advantage of the 40k fanbase.

For a group of bongs who started as history majors wanting to make a kitchen sink medieval fantasy setting they sure got waaaay out of touch near the end there. It's like they couldn't fathom that some people don't want the edgy grimdark far-future scifi galactic conquest game bleeding over into early renaissance dark fantasy. Imagine if in the last ten years of his life Tolkien wrote a continuation story and it's about Frodo and Sam building an army of robots because the world is dead from plague to go up and fight an alien insect empire with resurrected psychic Gandalf wielding a chainsaw lightsaber staff and then being really confused why everyone's upset.

That's the thing though, the first 5 editions of Warhammer were written by Priestley, and 6th through 8th were not. As much as writers like Graeme Davis were influential on the setting, a lot of the feel of the game came directly from him and the game lost something after that.

I dunno, stuff like bretonnia, empire, or vampire lore is pretty kino in 6th ed, the level of oppression for the peasants and gloom is so on the nose it's just funny

I think it'd be bad and dumb if it seemed like the writers thought they were making a gritty and mature appraisal of the world, but the fact you can tell they're having fun and it's just some really nerdy historians gives it a lot of soul
but I guess it's just personal taste, for my part I don't like that AoS/modern 40k feels a lot like the writers think they're doing serious business and they can't have some light-heartedness in the deepest darkness

It was literally a different group of people coming in with a *very* different background. The CEOs letting the 40k group write stuff was a major mistake, particularly since the 40k group proved themselves unable to cope with situations that they didn't plan for.

We may rag on Priestley for his corporate-sponsored "Hey guys, laser guns in fantasy games!" line, but if anything that just showed he was a fun guy who didn't take himself seriously. Not that having lasers and shit in fantasy is necessarily good or you're not fun if you don't want it, but just that attitude of "Do what you want, YOU should have fun" Priestley had was sorely missed with later iterations of GW. It's naive to say GW never cared about money but when Priestley left it became /all/ that they cared about.

>> No.72805184

that's fair, and for me a good part of it is that I don't really see the lore as one or the other, just different takes on the world that can both be enjoyed for different reasons.

I usually don't like darker iterations of pre-existing stories because the writers usually just make it that everyone wears drabber colors and is mean to eachother, but 6e makes a darker world that nonetheless contains all the nobility, extravagance, and faith of earlier editions. pic related lore tab is the kind of lore I really love, it doesn't pull punches with how dangerous and cruel the world can be, but still shows glimmers of hope in full earnestness

I feel you, I really do, and 5th has a lot of details and room for character that 6th did not with their peasants. But 6th also provided some interesting flavor beyond 'oh we're just happy to serve our lords because everything's bright and cheery.'

Realistically you need a mix between both, the fault of 6th was that it came out at a time that edge was not ironic and grimdarkness was in full swing. Even AoS struggles with whether or not to make things grim or bright, mostly by not mentioning it, far as I can tell.

40k Chaos literally cannot win without divine intervention. They're so insane, retarded, and disorganized that they can't even drive their ships, and have daemons controlling everything instead. Most of them can't even communicate with one another as they've lost the brain functions to do so. Even with daemons steering their ships, the crew is likely to blow up the ship in their attempts to murder each other (like why Khorne berserks have to be chained up in ships' holds). It's practically a miracle whenever one of their ships make it to an Imperial world. From there, they're so disorganized that they basically split off into individual bands as they destroy the planet. It's only because they're so monstrously OP and the Imperium so monstrously incompetent that they can win.

My only exposure to Warhammer has been the Rise of Nagash stuff. Whenever I talk to warhammer people the things they talk about describe characters as being totally different to in the novel (ie.

>> No.72807547

A lot of lore is conflicting between newer and older material. The Legends series of novels, which give us a deeper look at some of the major characters of the setting, are especially guilty of this as we're seeing a more indepth look at their history than we have previously.

The Nagash books SHOULD supercede any older material, as it's our first solid look at the characters that have been established in army books and articles, but due to the fractured nature of the fanbase and the strong 'Your Dudes, Your Story' heart of the game, there are just as many arguments against it.

One lesson all must learn about the Warhammers is, as many similarities as they share, the rules of 40k do not apply to WFB and vice versa. The Eldar are sometimes foes, sometimes friends of the Imperium and occasional friendship is often rebuffed by the Imperium's zealotry and sense of duty. The High Elves are distant but firm friends of the Empire of Sigmar (and Bretonnia and Marienburg too, and presumably the other human nations), and the Imperials are often lead by sensible generals that can put aside any mistrust for recognizing a good ally. In 40k, Chaos worshipers can only survive free from the Imperium's wrath in the Eye of Terror, and most are renegades - even accepted pyskers are hated. In WFB, most of the Chaos worshipers live relatively invasion-free in the distant north and northeast, and are their own distinct cultures and peoples with some of the flotsam of the south mixed in, and wizards range from being mistrusted to respected.

These may seem like petty details, but these subtle nuances keep WFB from getting too dark and 40k from getting too bright - and show that you pay attention to the lore instead of just making assumptions from what you already know. I think half of us got into WFB after 40k, so it's understandable to make false equivalences.

I've been seeing this idea floating around recently, and while it seems nice, especially with the Imperium's heavy fascist...can you even call them undertones? it doesn't really work on closer scrutiny.

The Imperium has everything from all male IG regiments to all female to mixed to no one giving a shit. Birthing servitors and vitae wombs are relatively rare and mostly restricted to the Death Korps. Whether or not the local Imperial government is corrupt mostly depends on the people in it - unlike the Skaven, who are always bad, the Imperium can at least manage a range. Citizens are overworked and underpaid, but usually only mutants are slaves (if not killed). Speaking of, there's no real equivalent of the Skaven's overuse of warpstone - the Imperium does have lines it won't cross unless it's been corrupted by Chaos anyway. The Emperor and the Horned Rat definitely do not share any parallels - the Horned Rat is an ill-fleshed out deity/racial patron with only Grey Seers as his emissaries, the Ministorum is basically the Catholic Church (with some vague Protestant elements), complete with missionaries and a religious military force, and with many, many different varieties of belief and factions.

Their entire business models relies on whales instead of a serious push to try expand their market by really building upon their IP.
I mean look at Japan, they made a Japanese exclusive 40k line but then just advertised it with regular western style art instead of commissioning work from notable japanese manga illustrators, if you're going to do a Japanese exclusive line of mini's as well, why not offer Anime style heads which you could display your models with in the window, attracting Otaku into your store? Why not also commission LN's and a manga as well again with art by notable japanese illustrators? So with the Japan push, both with Tau and the Exclusive Heroes line, they tried to appeal to the Japanese market, being the largest miniature market on earth, but then completely half-assed the entire fucking thing.
Same thing with this Warhammer adventure stuff, yes it makes sense to do a more kid friendly line to try get kids growing up with Warhammer as a franchise so they may get into the actual miniatures as teenagers, but then the actual animations look bad even by 2000s Newgrounds flash era and the books suck, and are literally being pushed and marketed towards Doctor Who fans, what? Why didn't they push those Gatcha toys to kids here? Why not do an extremely cheap board game with like rubber fucking mini's to sell to kids in toy stores? Why not actually commission a good animation studio with experience in licensed works like CNS to do the animations?

How that works is anyone’s guess but Lustria is not just jungles, there are big plains and mountains too. Predators And prey will mostly be regulated by climate zone.

As you rise higher up, to the foothills the weather gets more mammal friendly, the colder weather makes life for larger reptiles unpleasant. Maybe here you could get paleolithic sabretooth cats and whatnot.

Really Lustria is just your lost-world setting. It has tarzans, janes and great apes. Lost civilisations and women in leather skin bikinis riding jaguars.

I just realized the best way to think about Warhammer fluff. Quantum theory.
There are infinite timelines, infinite warhammer universes. There are some where Karl Franz is the Everchosen. Some where people have been barbarians for many millenia more, until a warlord Diederick Kastner united them and forged the Empire. For every world where Chaos won, there's a world where Chaos got sealed out forever. And they are all real at the same time.

You can import them all right, tweaking them to work with 6th shouldn't be that difficult however you should consider changing point costs (way up). 6th edition in most cases was not cheap in terms of troop per point.

Its a mini. Its an abstraction. Half the minis are simplified compared to what they'd look like IRL. No bags, pouches, scabbards, extra shit, not enough arrows in quivers, wings are waaaay to small. Proportions are off exaggerating important bits (faces, weapons, movements). Its purpose is to say "this is a mechanical horse", trying to analyze the mini itself and saying "this particular design is unrealistic" is silly.

I doubt sculptor even knew the difference. Nor should he have known. Its like watching something like Xena, Conan or LotR, and saying "those weapons/armor are unrealistic" with a straight face.

Its warhammer, none of it is real, all of it is made up to look cool to the person designing it. Your entire argument applies to everything in the setting, everything is an abstracted representation, not a literal snapshot from a moment from a world with ironclad rules.
