Has anyone ever painted Gotrek literally any other fucking way?

I just got him on whim when a dude at the shop was selling him. Is he good for basically all armies?

What is a single character from any army or unit you think you could fight and win against? What is the weakest unit that would kick your ass?

>> No.80323692

I'm wondering if I should just paint him in a completely different direction for fun. Then again, I'm terrible at painting...

>> No.80323791

Maybe drop the Bounderz? Or is the Colossal Squig just not worth it?

Same. I'm hoping they get a lot of sneaky/underhanded shit in general. There's some threads of it in their dominion shit, but they need a lot more.

Really curious what sort of caster lore theyll get.

Just built an Assassin for my CoS army and holy FUCK this model is kino. Going to spend tomorrow building Handgunners. What projects are you working on, /aosg/?

Middle of painting Glade Captain with Great Weapon as Nomad Prince, about half way done and going to head for bed. Shame it was never made in plastic, one I got is metal, but it's a beautiful model and I am glad to have snagged it off ebay for 32 bucks.
Got pictures of your Assassin, or you haven't painted it yet? I want to get it as well, eventually.

>> No.80325316

i must be going crazy then or the single skink box i bought was overstuffed thanks to a production error, because i know for a fact i've yet to get either of those. i just have 34, but the skink box only has 24

>> No.80325391

i've still got the skink sc to build, and that'll get me up to 46, which'll make 2 20 lizard mobs with some models left over.

granted, it's not like i'll probably even play so the listbuilding is kind of pointless. the underworlds band looks cool though, so i'll probably get that one eventually just to have

>> No.80325740

Cool idea, but I'm not sure if it's just the colour of the light or saturation on your camera, but all your colours seem too bright for my taste. More greys and blacks. You could probably afford to do the archway of that furnace as obsidian black, the Pyramid. If you want to vary up your energy sources or cables and stuff like that, use nighthaunt painting techniques to get a spectral glow or hue. You did a cool thing in Pic related, I'd copy that liberally all over to make it look like desicated driftwood, or otherwise making it less warm and inviting. That's a good wood, make no mistake, the ropes are a bit shit, they look done with that horrendous yellow contrast paint, but I think it'd be more at home with Kruleboyz or the like. I'd take a look at Nighthaunt painting guides to make your army look more dead

Instead of 2 20 units of hoppers, try 3 10 man units. Your never going to be able to get 20 hoppers into combat.
If your going Squig Herd, definitely a unit of Sneaky Snufflers. They are freaking turbo juice on squig units.
Gotta have at least 1 wizard to try to dispell enemy endless spells, and you need another hero to take the Warlord battalion for a free enchantment.

They aren't Battleline anymore
You have to take Horrors or Kairic Acolytes now (Kairic Acolytes are absolute trash and got more expensive in 3.0 and Horrors got cheaper despite being the best fucking unit in the army)

>> No.80326395

Same, but since they don't I've ordered a 3d printed one. Hopefully it turns out good.
It might suck. At least it's only $100

>> No.80326437

>god dammit. I have a lot to read about the new coalition stuff
Yeah it's fucking bullshit.
They're definitely trying to force every Tzeentch player to invest heavily into fucking Pink Horrors (because 1 unit of 10 pink horrors costs ~100 euros and needs 3 fucking boxes and you probably need more than 1 unit of them due to summoning and battleline tax.)
At least previously you could've used KinoWarriors as a somewhat tanky Battleline, but now you're fucked

>> No.80326443

That's still fucking overpriced as shit for a 3d print.
It costs literally cents to print that shit.

>> No.80326537

You mean like how freeguild are? Because freeguild and empire were painted far more uniform than Landsknechts ever were, and this is in my opinion a shame. At least with Napoleonic kit you get to keep the vibrant colors and have a precedent for uniformity.

That it'd be a good fit since it carries several design cues and the grande armée was multiethnic like how the CoS are supposed to be, allowing elves and dwarves to share in the human aesthetic and not be out of place further tying them together.

Okay? Does that mean Napoleonic is intrinsically tied to that shitty aesthetic though? No, it doesn't. Bringing it up out of nowhere is confusing.

Well two were the eternal anglo and one is a reminder that we really should have seen that coming. It's not like an oppressed majority of the population ever rose up in revolution in France to overthrow the oppressive government with lots of murder afterwards.

I feel like Nighthaunt were designed right before the release of the first Generals Handbook (like GSG). They were shit almost out the gate, didn't have any of the mechanics of books clearly designed with 2.0 in mind (fuck look at IDK and DoK... clearly 2.0 was on their mind yet Nighthaunt, released later, was a shit show).
They are a complete shit show carried on the back of a few cool models but mostly because they are very cheap to get into and very easy for paintlets.
