Define abandon, but for the time being, 40k will be the focus of their attention. They will try releasing Lumineth, but after that they will greatly focus on 40k because it is a) the big cow that b) is getting a new edition.

So I do GsG right now, big grot hordes with magic.

Looking at doing something completely different. My first choices were Ossiarch or Sylvaneth.

Thoughts on each compared to gobbos? I would instantly go Ogres for their lower model count but not too keen on another Destruction army just yet.

>Stolen from a question in a previous thread. What's a fun memory you have of a game that makes you smile?
Gutrot Spume holding a Griffon's beak shut for four rounds of combat was a highlight.
Another was a dwarf player firing two cannons at a unit of Plague Drones for a solid two turns. On the second turn of firing he finally managed to kill one... which then got promptly revived by the daemon banner.

>> No.73176167

Sylvaneth are bottom of the barrel tier and their most overpriced kit (Revenants) actually got a price hike a few weeks ago.
OBR are powerful, so powerful that you have to hold back on army building to not be a cunt (don't combine Petrifex and Mortek spam, basically) and, unlike GSG they allow you to build a very small army. You can of course make another army with hordes of spearmen as Battleline but they can also have their cavalry as Battleline and 3 units of their cav, the cav Battalion, the mounted leader and any one of the Wizards makes a lovely 1k point list.

Covid fucked the release schedule super hard. Lumineth were probably slated to come out a couple weeks after the lockdown in the US started, and sons of behemat a bit after that. Unfortunately, they had already done some teasers (And were halfway through spoiling lumineth) so they kinda had to follow through with that. Couple that with 9E 40k probably being locked in its release date and it seems like we'll be getting a bit of a drought of releases, though we'll probably get a new general's handbook next month so that'll be nice. It might even have the points values for sons and lumineth

Representation is a part of human rights but I agree with you and that's my opinion on trannies. If blacks want representation they can go to another game that has adequate representation of them instead of corrupting a game for whites.

GW has always wanted to do blacks in their game but if you actually painted models you'd know that in ye olde days, the paints weren't as good or varied and doing darkies on the models that were there looked poor. So GW never bothered. I believe they talked about this once. In other words 'they were all painted white because it l didn't cover up the detail'. Now they have better paints, models and painters, they can do darkies.

It didn't stop people doing darkies. That's the point of the fucking hobby. You can do them whatever you want.

Spider Riders are the damage dealers, yes. The Arachnarok with Shaman is your buff vehicle. The Flinger is completely fucking pointless imo but I guess it is the highest-ranged shooting attack in the whole army, for what it's worth. The Skitterstrand is more for ambushing than for dealing loads of damage, so yeah, I guess you're right, spider riders are the damage dealers. If I wanted to add damage to this army I'd probably just grab a unit of six Rock Trolls though.

I've only played 1 aos tourney so far, but I used to play in a ton of 40k ones with a medium tier list.

The big thing I noticed is if you Get a big win or s major win in your first game you're probably gonna have to have strong lists for the other 2 games. Since you'll prob lose game 2 and then play someone else who won their first game and got beaten by one of the top table people game 2.

But if you lose or tie or minor win the first game you're gonna shoot down to play the people who tend more to be there for fun.

Is the Legion of Grief the only one with a definitive jurisdiction assigned to it by Nagash? Olynder was scouted and elevated to deal with one particular aspect of the Necroquake's fallout; Nagash wanted someone to wrangle all the freshly risen ghosts in the Mortal Realms.

His city was already "gifted" before the battle even started as the blessings of Nurgle had seeped into their water supply not ling before my army came into the region. The tainted water twisted their minds, so when my army rolled in they happily assisted in battling the Duardin on the fields outside their city.

That was the in-game reason for an Order and Chaos faction to be working together. It was much easier to justify the Chorfs and Slayers working together since they were both duardin with a united goal to bring down the city (although for different reasons)

The majority of the Ogre range is finecast. They weren't going to remove the entire army for that. As for cannons et al; GW is bringing back Fantasy with ToW.

GW did the right thing getting rid of failcast and resin from lines that weren't selling. As for 'unintelligible decisions'? GW is now a £2.5bn company. Not £500m from the Kirby era.

9th is just 8th with ITC rules built in. The only real real difference is giving you 15CP +1/turn instead of taking batteries, which means now you can just spam more power units

I think the new elves look great, im not really an elf guy myself but im definitely looking forward to seeing them on the table.
The wacky hats aren't too big of a deal since it seems to be regulated to more elite units, when i checked out the article on WarCom the horses and infantry looked GREAT, if that is the main body of your force I think it will look splendid, not to mention how badass the general looks.
I also like the big mountain cow but i am a beastmen player so maybe bias on the coolness factor.
Would even be tempted to do a whole cavalry focused force if they had a cool horse HQ

I really wish they had a cool horse HQ. Would love to make a more classical cavalry army. Like the other anon said, the range is just super small.

Tenebrous court
Get a FEC start collecting. 10 ghouls, 3 crypt horrors/flayers depending if you want shock infantry or fliers, then convert the mounted ghoul king into a crypt ghast courtier with some spare bits.
290 or 330 points depending on how you build the big guys.
You then have a terrorgheist/zombie dragon to do with as you please

Fluff it as the FEC leaving their ghoul king to join the valiant ogre crusaders as they protect the lands.
Alternatively, the ogres killed the ghoul king and the surviving court members delusions justified it as the king being a tyrant with your ogre general being the noble who overthrew him and took the throne.

Except follow this video

and recast the extra parts you need to get an extra set of Crypt horrors/flayers (use the arms/backs/heads of the kit you didn't build at first*) and an extra Crypt Ghoul body for the Ghast Courtier.
Also, take an Archregent as the ally and use his summoning command ability to bring in the units you can't fit in points-wise.
*If you really want to stretch the value, you can recast some more bodies and arms to get both the Courtier heroes for the Crypt Horrors and Flayers.

I should also mention that you'll want an Archregent over the Ghoul King since the Archregent's command ability lets him summon a wider variety of units.
And you can just pussy out by magnetizing the arms on the Horrors/Flayers, which still gives you more variety, but you'll still only be able to field one or the other.

Hexwraith Flame is perfectly fine, but it's not a full paintjob. If you mellow it out with some Gauss Blaster Green and then some Ulthuan Grey, it looks good.

>> No.73197010

i really dislike it. has a sticky glossy finish and it's very thick, so totally gums up details, but due to the nature of the mixture you cant thin it without ruining the effect

it was like a prototype contrast but worse in every way. warp lightning green contrast is a much better color combined with a light green for highlights like moot green

i own both the hexwraith and the blue one, they are both miserable to work with in different ways. the blue one ends up chalky and muddy and gives almost no layering effect and the mix is wildly inconsistent pot to pot for both of these, and because they separate so quickly and completely you can see the inconsistent mixes when you go to buy them at the store
