Man, I almost painted up some last night with yellow shields. Went with the poster boy reds though. I felt yellow would kind of cross into Gloomspite territory with their Bad Moon iconography. And the excessively yellow Ironjawz.

They look sharp in yellow, for sure.

But yellow shields are less sneaky in this case. Angry red faces? The Khornates would never suspect them!

I wonder if it would be a good idea to paint a whole shield like made from bronze? The other idea would be to make them blue to make them ''lucky'' like 40k orks do.

Well I haven't actually got them yet but I am planning on doing the shield as brass with dark metallics. Then as for clothing I am not sure, either black, bright grey or dark blue.


Oh and jungle themed bases. Because I am fething tired on only doing dark & damp bases.

Well, having started AoS by buying the Dominion box and getting extra boltboyz, I planned on having a slightly more ranged Orruk army than my old Orc/Goblin WHFB army.

I loved the red shields with the green skin look so bought into AoS. I then see from this community post that the ranged army is 'yellow'.

"You can improve Kruleboyz shooting even more if you choose to run one of the Kruleboyz’ warclans, like the Big Yellers warclan, notable for their bright yeller shields."

As a new AoS player, are colour schemes expected to be followed? You couldn't turn up to a 40k tournament using Dark Angels rules with a smurfblue painted army. How does this go in AoS?

Currently most played: Kill Team 18, Kings of War, Silent Death, Beyond the Gates of Antares, Dracula's America, Bolt Action (inc K47), DzC and X-Wing. Dabbling with 40k again and trying AoS3.

Yes, but the Chaos Dragon was better IMO. They should bring it back.


The forgeworld one? IIRC, the mold broke. I had 2 and sold one for over $1000 cause you couldnt get them anymore.

As for Smaug most of the early artwork and descriptions of him have him as your very standard fantasy western dragon. 6 limbs with wings, four legs and all. It's really only the Hobbit live action films that had him done as a 4 limbed dragon, which commonly many would consider more of a wyvern design. However its equally known as a wurm design which is often seen as a more classic/older kind of way of describing a dragon.


IIRC, when the first hobbit films released (you can see the clips of the dragon entering the dwarves fortress) it appears smaug had 6 limbs. it was then removed for the last 2 films (and bluray versions updated - the collector series, not sure on regular).

From my experience, I don't think the AoS community is that strict.

There were one or two tournaments that tried ages back.

In general no one cares and even within their own armies most people haven't got a clue about official schemes. Heck the official Daughters of Khaine schemes are almost identical and just different shades of red in key places.

Your army Your choice when it comes to paint. The only requirement is that most events will mandate that you're painted (at least 3 colours); but otherwise go wild!

Nobody I know gives a damn, just stay with your subfaction keywords.

Also, there are factions subfactions without an actual official color (Mega-Gargants, Thunder Lizard), subfactions that have colours but not official rules (almost every single 1E Battletome, and some like Gitz feature them) and even subfactions that don't even have official artwork or the likes (there are Beastclaw Raiders that work for Archaon, use Chaos iconography, yet they are only mentioned in the BTs).

I wouldn’t worry about it too much. Sub Faction Abilities in AoS are kind of lesser than in 40K.

So rather than having exclusive units or equipment like Astartes, it’s more you’d be better off fielding certain units.

Provided you don’t go swapping your chosen Sub Faction game to game during a tournament, it really won’t make an ounce of difference.

Since when? I played Black Salamanders at LVO 2018. I don't think there is any rule that says you have to have blue marines to play ultras and so on.

Recent core rules faq specifically states that if you're not running your subfactions colours then you're running proxies and must have the permission of your opponent to do so. There was a lot of hoo ha in the SCE groups I'm in about the change.

The rule's BS. I've never known anyone to give two hoots. You might have bother at official GW tournies though.

I tried to find the faq but it seems to have momentarily disappeared.

I’m now looking forward to army pics of the Kruelboyz, which is something we don’t seem to have had much or any of.

That way, we can better see how the really quite disparate looks come together. Particularly for the gribblies, so we can see the size differences and that.

Honestly 99.9% of people won't give you any grief over it. Subfactions in battletomes/codex are really just a handful of special rules and no sane person expects you to build 4 or 5 or however subgroups there are up so that you can choose. Esp since many subgroups focus on specific types of model or tactics (Eg one might focus on close combat another on ranged etc...).

Dominion hasn't been out for a month yet, so there's no FAQ for the Core Rules as of yet. Here however is a Designers' Commentary from 2018 that has the particular commentary you're referring to:

Q: Is it okay to use ‘proxy’ models to stand in for models that I do not have but want to use in a game? For example, using a Slaughterpriest model to represent a Bloodsecrator, or using Stormcast Eternals models painted in the colours of the Hammers of Sigmar to represent Stormcast Eternals from a different warrior chamber?

A: The use of proxy models is generally frowned upon, because doing so can confuse the other players (and sometimes even yourself), and because it spoils the spectacle and aesthetic of the game. Because of this, you can only use proxy models if you’ve gained your opponent’s permission to do so before the game begins.

Personally, outside of Marines, I don't give a hoot what color scheme you use for your sub-faction. I'm a little more 'strict' on Marines just because of how varied they can be and how their rules work. Yellow Ultramarines would weird me out.

Marines are different because their "subfactions" have unique models, parts and codex of their own and those codex have further subgroups within them. Ultramarines and Blood Angels are basically two different armies.

And within them there's sub-chapters which likely have different paint schemes with slight variations on the core colours "blue with different trim" etc...

except, whats the differance between white scars and imperial fists? sure each has a special character but that same level of differance exists between Necrons, or Orks.

the biggest reason is that everyone KNOWS the space marine chapters and the lore behind them, So people more obviously know if you're running imperial fists but painted white scars.


but we're getting off topic

Nice one, thanks! That's the rule I was after.

Could've sworn I was looking at the designer's commentary the other day for the core rules. Hey ho.
