Personally, I like it. These "Awakened" Weapons have been a thing in Underworlds for awhile, and it looks like this will be a nasty treat for my Idoneth.

Yes, but we are on a discussion/message board, it'd be kind of boring if everyone left their opinion to themselves. I do agree that the content teased so far is incredibly phoned in,and unless they have something massive tucked away for later to wow us, I will give this one a big pass.

I'm from the future. The future of space

I really like the idea of campaign supporting items where things get better after each game. Unfortunately gamer ADD makes doing a campaign a bit of an issue. It seems like any time someone organizes one locally the various participants will get excited about some new release for some other game. Start a kill team campaign? A bunch of AoS battle tomes get released. Start an AoS campaign, some new board game comes out.

Campaigns are one of the hardest things to get right, so I guess it's good to have more support for them.

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.

I will be incorporating most of this into our fall campaign as well.

GW points don't bring balance. They exist purely for structure. You can get more balance from no points than you do from GW points. You however can get no structure in your game without points.

That is not quite what he said, though. I find what he did say unreasonable and hyperbolic, but it is just expressing his opinion. Kan's response was not out of line; he pointed out that if one does not feel the content justifies the price personally they are free not to buy it, with the implied calling out that one personally feeling a product is not worth it does not mean the product is not worth it at all.

Is this what the future of GW box sets is? Do i have to order two from two different people just to get it? What a sad state that is. As far as third party sellers go, especially ebay ones.. if one product they can't get then they get another product, doesn't necessarily have to be gaming stuff.

Foridden Power: The Scenery on Warhammer Community.



Spoiler:
Over the past year, many Warhammer Age of Sigmar armies have received scenery pieces offering all manner of unusual benefits to their forces, like the Herdstone and the Fane of Slaanesh. Forbidden Power gives every army the option of tactical scenery with the Penumbral Engine.

In the lore, many armies have stolen Penumbral Engines from the Stormvaults – you can learn more in our preview from earlier this week. In the game, this means you can add a Penumbral Engine to your army, offering some great in-game benefits. At the beginning of the battle, you’ll roll to see just how all Penumbral Engines on the battlefield are behaving throughout the game.



Whether you’re getting additional command points or a bonus to your saving throws, the Penumbral Engine makes for a great lynchpin in your battle-lines! Be careful, however, for every battle round, there’s a chance your Penumbral Engine will switch its function…



Penumbral Engines make for great neutral terrain in your battles, with their powerful and unpredictable effects making them tactically interesting to battle over. They’re also designed to fit onto the rest of the Dominion of Sigmar scenery.



'It is a source of constant consternation that my opponents
cannot correlate their innate inferiority with their inevitable
defeat. It would seem that stupidity is as eternal as war.'

The timing is intentional. The pot is being put up on made to order For the bloodbowl team, along with an old Treeman.

I was thinking of GW releasing plastic halflings just as I need them, not the made to order items. I'm currently building an adventure party and I need a cook, who may or may not go by the name Cassius Reibach.

Honestly as long as the moulds are still in good shape there's no reason GW can't do more repeats. The only thing that will stop them is when the moulds are broken/damaged/worn beyond use. At that point chances are they will just bin the mould and the model - perhaps keeping a master around for future reference/use (insurance) but otherwise that model would be fully gone. For made to order I doubt its economical for GW to recast moulds.

That said made to order has traditionally been one-shot-wonders - a week or so and that's it. I wonder if when their new factory comes online we might see more made to order - GW has a wealth of models in their archives and some still sell well on the secondhand market. Be good for GW to tap into that and have the money coming in fresh for new investments rather than recyling around within the community (and bleeding it somewhat as old metal models command a good price online unless you're lucky to nab things without other bidders noticing)

Did the previous MtO coincide with a Wood Elf BB release by chance? Maybe they are just double dipping because of how that model overlaps.

I'd buy another 30 at least if the re-rereleased diaz daemonettes, absolutely love those models they look great.

I can just about justify seekers at ebay prices (only just); but yeah the Deamonettes sell for insane money on ebay. I'd love 30 just to run as a single specialist unit; though with my luck the limited run would appear with so little warning that I'd likely not have the money for them.

I really wish GW would give us more heads up on limited print runs

Well, we do not know if there will ever be another run for
the diaz deamonettes or seekers (or Slaanesh lords for that matter).

Technically there have not been another run of anything right now.

The picture is of the Hallowed Stormthrone for which you need to combine parts from 2 Enduring Stormvaults but the throne definitely isn't in there. I guess there might be another kit coming later for it with the throne and the small base on a sprue along with the Griffon statue sprue? The small base is not the same as the one in the Stormvault unless it's a conversion and they cut away the sides.

I see I'm not the only one wearing a tinfoil hat. I figured GW might use the Gryph-Hound statues as time exclusives in the big expensive set as an incentive (because everyone loves Gryph-Hounds) much like hero models in battle boxes, and then release them later in a smaller box once they got all of their sales out of the big expensive one.

Another possibility is a campaign box like 40k got, with added/different objective kit and barriers and stuff. Only in the case of Age of Sigmar including a throne.

So what kit has that throne???

It's either a kit that has yet to be released; was a previous kit that was never released or is just a bit of conversion work or something poached from something else.


Bit of a shame GW put the statue into all the boxes, would have thought they could have done something else a bit different. The modular design of it all is very neat though. Looks like it will be a smart set of kits; and GW has left the door open for them breaking the kits down into smaller blocks (because they appear to all be on individual sprue) if these big collected sets prove not to sell; and also to add them into future sets.

And I posted a few days ago I’d see if there was a copy of Looncurse on my local’s shelf. There is a single copy. If you want it for regular retail plus full shipping (basically, the same way MDG does his looting), PM me. I’d prefer to get it for someone who doesn’t have a box yet though; not somebody looking for a third copy or something.

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