Indeed.
Curious to see which models are allowed.

It'd be rather dull. Lots of reach but nothing really exciting, I don't desire a complete roster but few other units seem a must for an enjoyable experience. They're giving absurd support to SCE and Chaos, wasted potential, if they're playing favourites.


It's not like the setting is litterally in Chaos Dominion, right ? Makes sense Chaos plays a big role. As for SCE, since their role is, like, fighting Chaos at all cost, it's kinda logical they're the ones trying to do exactly that.

Guys

Sorry to bother and ask a 'stupid' question for most of you but I wanted to start on playing Warcry. I have got tons of unassembled Death minis back from WFB, so Vampires, Necromancers, Ghouls etc etc
I am getting back to the hobby and do not want to start buying loads of new armies, minis or other.
So can someone list EXACTLY what would I need to but to start with Warcry? Books, cards or other (of course excluding minis, dice and measure cause I got all that left form years back)
Would you say that a bit older looking minis still could be used in such games? I think would need to get some round bases as the ones I got are squares.
Any tips and advise is appreciated ;-)

You'll need the basic book of rules (you can buy it separately) and the profiles of your faction (you can find those for Death faction in the Tome of Champions extension currently on pre-order, or find the cards online).

Maybe Monster and Mercenaries if you want to include some "heroes" in your band, but it's not necessary at first.

For now, you can play Flesh Eater Courts (the ghoul faction, including the big ones), Legions of Nagash (skeletons with necromancer, basically) and Nighthaunts (the ghosts). I think you're not that interested with the Ossiarch Bonereapers, since those are new.

About bases, technically all measures are made from it so if you use squares, it has an influence. That said, it's not that big a difference and if you don't play it competitively, it shouldn't be a problem for your opponent. But it's sure better when both players use the same bases.

Using older models isn't that much of a problem, since profiles in Death faction are quite easy to distinguish. Some use different weapons (Legions of Nagash), but it's easy to find models distinctive enough to differentiate them (for example, there is a profile for skeletons with spears and skeletons with hand weapons - the first have a longer range, so you could use skeletons with scythes easily enough instead). Hell, even using zombies instead of skeletons isn't that big a deal in the end.

Ok thank you very much for an in depth answer.
Looks like a trip to local GW store to pick up some books and cards and off I go
Once I got the book I will start assembling and getting my warband ready.
Once again sorry for the off-topic admins

I know that I could easily place my Splintered Fangs somewhere in an untainted part of Ghyran, and they wouldn't feel out of place, no idea how other Chaos bands would do. SC Vanguard are supposed to be the part that fits in the Warcry narrative, they're the hunters and specialists that operate behind the enemy line, while warrior and wizard chambers are obviously specialized in other area. It's a bit outdated argument as the expansions seems to add enough material to play a skirmish/pitched game that will fit your narrative, whatever you decide it to be. If they can make it work for Underworlds, I'm sure they can make it for Warcry too.

Games Workshop rules are not so much games as toolboxes for players to craft an experience from. Open/narrative/matched play are just examples of how things can be put together.

I have a lot of older undead minis so have used the ghoulies, ghosties, and skellies warbands and had huge fun with all of them. The ghosties don't do all that much damage but are generally hard to kill, partly 'cos they can all fly. Good for objective-grabbing scenarios. The skellies can show up in vast numbers and thus get in the opponent's way nicely. The ghoulies are just vicious.

Yeah I have the same. Once I get the books I will start assembling and modelling. I was hoping you can use any Undead units together (like in old WFB days) but I guess it’s all divided now. So Vampires can lead a Death army/warband consisting of skeletons, zombies, bats, wolves, ghosts, wraiths and banshees?
Probably it’s all limited nowadays as GW split all the Undead into loads of separate fractions to make more ‘bling bling’

No mixed lists, in theory, but given I've so far played at home with families & friends, we do sometimes use counts-as e.g. a Vampire mini counting as one of the skelly leaders.

Hmm. I was hoping we'd see the new monsters and ogre get mentioned today.

Have there been any indications when those are actually coming out? The reveal seems a fair bit ago at this point- I was thinking they'd wrap up the year and the mini chaos release.

They said ‘These monstrosities will be joining the battle for the Eightpoints in 2020, alongside the already revealed Fomoroid Crusher.’ When they showed the Sphiranx and the Ogroid Myrmidon at Blood and Glory. That’s all we’ve got timescale wise. I imagine it’ll be January to keep it within the 3 month window they usually use after reveals.

Thanks- I had missed (or didn't remember) the 2020 mention. That does sound like January, and a normal GW December from here on out (i.e. sparse filler in terms of releases).

For those that complained about the Fomoid's eyepatch, good news. Looks like he has a second head option with the one eye.
The hands new too, since it doesn't have a rock. Hopefully his other arm is also different.

That's so you buy 4 $30 books, just to sell you the $50 compilation later.


I'm just happy to see something Seraphon. They probably won't let me, but I'd really enjoy running a Stegadon into some poor bastards warband.

The Sphiranx is disturbing (in a good way).

As I said when they first revealed it, it's almost a Kingdom Death monster.

Yeah, that head option is nice. Much more what I was after. Although now it reminds me of something I can't put my finger on. ALF? Gremlins? Both? Hmm...

I'm still not sure what to make of the Lord of the Rings troll skin paintjob, but obviously that's not really a problem.

Are we planning on officially calling it Hypnocat from now on? Because I'd like that.

I can see how that would be a tough choice.

I hope we won't have to wait too long until its release. Hypnocat has got to be among the best models GW ever made. And I want one!

Oh. I was expecting robed magisters with fireballs. Like a more sinister fire battle mage crossed with the gaunt summoner.
