Excellent work on display - the Nighthaunts by Elmir are especially eye catching!

Just ordered some models to get started and it will be a small open game with a "mature gentleman"( Knight Incantor ) sorting out some Blue Horror trouble makers. Models - touch wood - should arrive Monday...

Finally got round to trying out the rules( Incantor vs 3 Blue Horrors ).

It feels a more streamlined and casual compared to other games such as 40K and Frostgrave, but I actually like that. Some games require cross referencing between the character's stats and that of the weapon they are using, and can feel a bit awkward, but Sigmar - from the very small game played tonight - kept the two separate where it made sense. Frostgrave - in comparison - feels the more logical choice for skirmish, while AoS seems perfect for full-on war..

Considering a proper game using skirmish rules from WD, and purchasing a Wight King and a pack of three ETB Liberators that I noticed yesterday in my newly-found local gaming store...

Stormcasts: Incantor, 3x Liberators - 200pts
Deathrattle: Wight King, 7x Sepulchural Guardians - 202pts

...projecting further into the future, I forsee a purchase of Storm Strike...possibly that swanky-looking Tomb banshee.

Norwalk, Connecticut

Working on my Hellstrider mounts. I want a tournament level Slaanesh list, and it means minimum Battleline (so 3 units of Hellstriders for 300pts). Five models have been finished for months, the remaining 10 are all a work in progress. Closing in on the halfway point!

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

Just picked up what I'll need for a Fyreslayer warband in the initial games in our coming Path To Glory campaign.
A day to build them, about 3 days to get them painted up, & then it's off to chop up/burn to ash some undead/skaven/sea elves/chaos etc at the end of the month.

Bought a large('uge!) piece of green felt to use as a nice grass field for big clashes.

Also making a ruin from packaging cardboard, which is in a pretty cool shape and functional for the minis to move about and hide in cover, and even take the high ground.

More layers of undercoat for the Stormcasts and Deathrattle warbands.

Working on my 3 Warband Legions of the Lichemaster for Warcry.
Torn on the third faction either a Flesh Eater Court (figure their mutual loathing of Nagash) or maybe an Orc tribe that serves the Lichemaster and pay him a tribute of corpses.

Thank you. Trying to stick to painting up the Lichemaster's force first but definitely excited to get started on them.

This week I painted a squad of Liberators and a squad of hurricane xbows converted from castigators just by replacing the end of the bow with the extra xbow kits left over from making longstrikes.



That takes me over 1000 points.

As a break from painting I whipped up some ability and spell reminder cards as I am new to the game and havent memorized the rules yet. Plus they are a nice table reminder of any stays in play effects.

Assembled a box of pink horrors to join a box worth of blues'n'brimestones. Looking ahead, probably add Eyes of the Nine to lead the little warband.

Finished up the Lichemaster's warband. I should do the Hunting party and the Stormvault next but the Cities release has me excited. So as usual I'll probably be all over the place.

Thank you. As my collection threatens to bury me I'm all about multi purpose now. My Cities of Sigmar army is going to be the City of Misfit Toys. Models from all the games/kickstarters etc I've amassed over the years painted and based as a unified AoS force.

Ordering those fancy versitile terrrain nameplates to put what everything "counts as" for my opponents sake.

Inspiring Icon Bearer





Colorado Springs, CO

I have a few quick questions for all you fine folks, and I didn't want to start a new thread for them.

What is a ‘standard’ tournament-sized game of AoS played at? Is that also the typically played pick-up game size?

I’m in the early stages of planning an AoS experiment culminating in playing in a large tournament next year. I’m deciding between Orruck Warclans (focusing on brutes and higher as primary models), Moonclan Grots (mostly squigs) or Ossiarch Bonereapers (whenever they come out).

Last question I have is what books do I really need? I’m not naive enough to think that the ‘free’ app stuff is all I need, so what do I actually need to buy? My thought is currently the Core rules, the current GH and the army book for the faction I choose.


If I've got a trade you're interested in but you don't have anything on my wanted list, just shoot me a PM and ask! I'm easily distracted!

1) Standard Tournaments are 2K points. Though if there's a specific event you want to attend do just check ahead what the points are. They might also have a standard tournament pack which might reveal some custom rules/rulings that they use which might be important to know. This might include if they are using Realm Rules (these basically give you access to more spell lores and some bonuses/attribute changes)

2) Orruks are out on pre-order this weekend with their brand new Battletome; Grots already have theirs (gloomspite Gtiz) and Ossiarch Bonereapers are out in October (though we've no dates).

3) Get started with the Core rules and a Battletome and build from there. Note that GW is publishing a brand new rulebook that includes many of the expansion rules (such as realm rules) This is also coming out on pre-order this weekend and would be a great one-stop purchase to get most of the core and expansion rules that you should require.
https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/09/22/coming-soon-middle-earth-mortal-realms-and-more/ (details in this post by GW).

Note this won't invalidate purchases like Malign Sorcery and Forbidden Powers as those sets still carry all the respective Universal Endless Spells models (which form the greater part of what you're paying for).

Definitely get that new book, as it takes what you need from three different books and puts them in one place. You'll only need that and a battletome, since the armies you are looking at have up to date* costs in them already

*Gloomspite do have a few changes via their errata document

Considering taking the AoS plunge. I dug my green skins out of a storage room. I started in on the night goblin/gloomspit gitz , but was quickly distracted by these orcs/orruk. The banner bearer absorbed some Waaaah! energy and traded up. The axe head is still loose so I can decide which way to turn it. The other converted weapons are from years ago. I'm unsure if I'll get the new book or try and trade these guys for some of the new gitz models. Either way, I'll enjoy getting them back into fighting form.

It is Plaguebearer Flesh over Vallejo Ghost Grey airbrush primer. Volupus Pink for all the guts and scabs, Skeleton Horde for the horns, Black Templar for swords, some random other greens and yellows for pustules and such.

Ghost Grey, eh? I played with some Contrast this weekend and ended up using Sky Grey as my airbrush base. Given that I'm happy with the result I guess I'll continue with it

Ah thanks
It makes me think of Japanese forests or Samurai so I imagine them to sweet taiko drums. Working on Tree-revenants next, really fun army to paint.
