They cost 110 points. Iron Golem 80. and at 10 hp for a tanky fighter that;s hardly impressive.

Their quad are also meh,

Well huh. I was looking at the rune marks in the rule book and there are already marks for both mounted and gargantuan models.

That bodes well for the future. Would be neat to see some sort of semi- coop mission where both warbands have to temporarily team up to take out some big nasty. Then each other afterwards naturally!

My son wants to do a highly mobile Squig Hopper warband. They're quite pricey point- wise. Not sure how viable they'd be.

I can see this map being popular for Stormvault themed AoS boards :

Stormvault map is nice and can be chained in any direction, unlike Kill Team maps. Might be nice if 4 people each get a copy for a big board.

Spoiler:


They do, i checked all the sprues to see what else is not showing, and the answer is not much really. The unmade get an alternative flesh face, a machete and a straight flail, while the cabal get to choose between a crow and a polearm.

The Shattered Stormvaults board is nice, but is the terrain included with it interresting for warcry ?
The two big platform seems like they would provide less terrain placement variety and tactical options than the walls and plateforms from the starter.

Do you think it's worth getting it if you don't play AoS ?

Yeah I was just coming back to edit that, I glossed over them for some reason.

The Cabal is the best of the bunch. All poses are good to great, the models look imposing but lithe with all their feather manes, brutal weapons...best GW stuff in a while, IMO. Compared to the others it looks like they shouldn't even fit all this on the tiny sprues my Cypher Lords came on. The Fangs sadly have a few boring poses and questionable weapons (the net is boring and too two-dimensional, the super long punching dagger looks off and WHAT is going on with that one dudes "gotta cover my naughty bits" crossed-arms pose). Gotta hack them up a bit, maybe mix in parts from the DEldar fly dudes I bought for their wings (harpys?).

Again, had I known they'd be releases THAT quickly I would've passed on the Lords. The question is...why did I remove their shrink wrap?!

I was pretty blah about the Cypher Lords up until I started painting them. They've really grown on me and I love all their poses.

The Crows are probably the group I'm most excited about though.

I cracked for the Unmade instead of the Splintered Fang in the end. After examining them a bit more on the website I noticed their iron halos reminded me severely of the enemies in Darkest Dungeon, and thus I auto-hyped myself thinking about quoting the Narrator while playing. *Kills an enemy model* "BACK TO THE PIT !"

Bearing in mind that it's early days and I can't claim to have a good grip on the game yet, I'd say the Shattered Stormvault could be interesting to play on.

First, they're two big LOS blockers. You can do a good bit of maneuvering behind them without ever going to be visible to enemy archers. This may not be the biggest concern, but it may prevent on people loading up on long range fighters if they can't easily make use of their strongest attack, which as far as I'm concerned is a good thing. The starter set terrain seems more open than that and in today's game I would have benefited from having more than one archer around, simply because the terrain didn't get in the way much. It depends on the terrain cards, though, but given there are a fair few of them, you're bound to have a mix of more or less interesting placements.

Also drawing on my experience today, there was no real reason to leave the ground because the small walkways of the starter set are all well and good if you want to whack each other over the head until someone falls over, but if you'd like to maneuver and rely a little more on sophistication like my Daughters of Khaine, I could see the wider platforms of the Stormvault giving me way more options above ground level.

In addition to that, as a twist we drew marshy terrain on the ground subtracting 1" from everyone's movement. Again, due to the limited nature of the starter set terrain we just put up with it, but the Stormvault's larger footprint actually allows you to chose where to go.

The pillars and braziers, few though there are, seem good enough to hide a model behind, so you have that as an element you can use. And you get two statues on large plinths and the Stormvault entrance for smaller, so there are additional elements over the two large platforms.

Overall I think the Stormvault board can work, but again, that's just my initial impression with only few games played and none of them on that board.

After unboxing Warcry today, I have decided my first project. I am going to add 0,5mm height to both 25 and 28mm bases to match the height of 32mm bases. I hate having bases with different thicknesses..

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.

It'd probably be easier to get some fine grit sandpaper and take that half millimeter off the 32mm bases...

I must say that both of the starter set Warbands are great miniatures to put together, seamless. It is just tempered by the general lack of modularity and options but they look great. Also they are bigger than I envisioned.

That said I went all in with this week's pre orders, the shattered stormvault and all three Warbands.

Has anybody tried to Mordheim-ify the terrain so far? The wall pieces are not THAT great to use as a ground floor for multilayer medieval buildings with all those iron bars for walls, but it could still work?

I can't find my sidecutter, so I haven't started assembly on my own stuff :( (and I'm out of fresh scalpels, so I'll have to take some from the hospital tomorrow, too).

I cant believe people were complaining about the price of the starter set. Considering warbands cost 30 quid, you've got 2 of them plus the monsters, which basically takes you up to the retail price anyway, before you even look at the terrain and all the other bits.

Well, GW could give away the starter and some people would still complain about having to build it. So you are always going to have someone complain about something. Doubly so with how easy the internet makes it.

At the same time, Warcry is on the expensive side for the, "I just want the models and don't care about the game" side. Especially since most of the warriors don't have direct use in GW's flagship games (yet). I know I had to talk myself into getting it as I don't know how much of the actual game I will be playing. There is a lot of terrain, but not quite enough for me to justify the price on it alone since I already have plenty terrain. If it weren't for the fact I like all of the warrior and creature models and enjoy painting I don't know if I would have purchased it myself. Warcry feels like it has a high risk of not catching on. I am a little concerned that game might be too shallow (or perceived to be) for long term play.

I think we got pass the price discussion several pages ago.

And the conclusion is : Don't like the price? don't buy it.

News and Rumour, GW speak with money mostly, not words, so complaining probably do nothing, and it already been discussed in here several pages ago. No need to bring up the dead horse again.

True. When you think about the price of regular gw plastic though, it seems like a hell of a deal to me. I don't play so I bought it just for the models, and it still seemed pretty good, plus I can probably make a bunch of that cash back selling on the cards, rulebook, board and some of the terrain.

Those Corvus Cabal miniatures are fantastic. I'd love to use them in another game system, but they're so unique it would be hard to incorporate them in with any existing miniatures I already have. Still fantastically well done though.

I'm from the future. The future of space

So far every warband looks way better in person than they do in the pictures. I saw the Cypher Lords built and they are awesome.

I've fallen in love with the Iron Golems after seeing them in person as well. I ended up snapping up a second set from someone parting out a box. The blob of them will end up seeing the battlefield as allies in my beasts of chaos in AoS as well. Though I am really looking forward to sticking 2 of the chaos dwarfs in my shield battle group in Warcry.

Balance in pick up games? Two people, each with their own goals for the game, design half a board game on their own without knowing the layout of the board and hope it all works out. Good luck with that. The faster you can find like minded individuals who want the same things from the game as you, the better.

Received my Unmade, just had the time to build the leader (Blissful One) so far but I confirm they're even better in real. There's just the Iron Golems I definitely don't like, they feel overdone to me. But I've seen great paint schemes for the Untamed Beasts and they're starting to look appealing too.

For those wondering, the Unmade box gives you 9 models, totalling 980 pts (220 + 145 + 125 + 125 + 125 + 60 + 60 + 60 + 60).
