Dweghom have started shipping as of about 10 days ago to the distributors. Folks in Europe have reported getting some.

Based on previous timelines from when they shipped out on boat to the US, it takes roughly 3 weeks or so and I am anticipating around Thanksgiving to have my models in hand to begin painting them up.

Additionally I have suggested to them via my vanguard contact about an official Discord to help get everyone together on a communication channel. There is a fairly active facebook page but I'd like to see something a bit better for those that don't like to use Facebook.

How are you guys representing unit upgrades such as Seasoned Veteran or Catabolic Node?


Although Nords are (finally!) coming, I'm also super eager to see the next wave of Spires or 100K. Currently, the unit availability doesn't offer a load of variety but it's completely normal considering how so many releases can't be done on a whim. Though their plans to have 7 full factions in 3 years is really ambitious. Avatara or Orders must be awesome!

I currently do not represent those things visually because I may or may not use them and if I paint something different then I am forced to use it (or not use it). If I include those things I just let my opponent know that they are in the command stand.

(My leaders and standards I paint different, and for the starter box I painted my spire leaders different color than the rest of the drones to denote that they were the leader/standard combo that trash drones can take (where one model represents both) since the starter box did not come with standards or leader models)

Yeah, I think that simply informing the opponent should do, but while reading the rules I thought there might have been a particular mini for the Catabolic Node, in the command sprue for example (" Then remove the Catabolic Node model as a casualty and replace it with a spare Rank and File model").

I also thought about painting the leader/veteran/ward with different colors or changing a spear/sword with a banner for the standard-bearers.
Now if I can just find a spare command card to split the FGD from the starter box...

To me that simply means when he explodes you remove a model that represents him plus any models on your side that he took out.

The spare card is something I need too though I know that when we get more core units that I'll be fine with what I have. Right now I only have 2 cards but need to split my stands out into 4 tiny units to meet my requirements since thats the only core unit we currently have.

Thank you sir!

Para Bellum just gave the link of their official discord as well this afternoon which is awesome. Not sure that I can post it here but if you are on their facebook you should have gotten the link.

Per their discord discussion - the nords should not only be out but in our hands before the holidays. And that new trailer was awesome.

It was!

They (we?) probably need to get it out there quickly though that the "Blooded" are akin to demi-gods and that's why they've got some fairly ridiculous muscles on top of their muscles!

Excited to drop this image. Louisville Wargaming presents its 2020 fantasy campaign. Conquest of the Stornlands. Set in the world of Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings... the northern Stornlands lie in ruin after the fall of the empire. Long buried treasures await, and a forgotten Spire stirs.

This campaign is a map campaign based off of the 2003 General's Compendium Borderlands from Warhammer Fantasy, only reimagined in the Conquest world.

We will be running this in 2020 at our campaign day meetups!

Rules document and story set to be completed before the end of the year so that we can get started in 2020.

Rules clarifications posted today.

Characters must now enter play in a unit from their warband (units they unlock).

They also discussed obscurement and what counts as obscured (clarifications). (p. 39 changes)

Ever since my poor interaction with Parabellum at GamesExpo this year my enthusiasm has went to other rank and file games.

I was interested in the Nords and Dwarves but it feels as thiugh there are hoops to jump through. I was hoping for starter sets or bundles, not necessarily discounted, but a 'here you go, have an army in a box' situation might be nice just for ease of entry.

They had that for dweghom briefly. Nords are expected to get a bundle as well. Its just not a permanent thing.

How is the Starter set for a jumping off point? Would multiple sets make interesting games?

Have an opportunity to get starters at like 35 US each.

So would multiple sets make sense to have a solid force of both? 2? 3?

A pair of starter boxes do indeed make a good cheap force, though you will be without command sprues. I have two starters for both 100k and my spires though and for the value they were great.

For spires i just paint a trash drone a different color to denote it is a leader model. (it counts as both leader and a standard in that unit). For your 100k, bits can make some banners if you don't want to buy unit boxes for the command sprues or to add on, but you will have:

2 mounted noble characters
6 household knights
6 crossbow
12 men at arms

You will want to order an Imperial Officer so that your force is legal (the crossbow cannot technically be fielded without the officer)

Steel Legion is the nastiest unit currently out.

Spires you'll have
12 trash drone stands
2 abominations
6 brute drones
2 pheromancers

The executor is a great character to pick up and the marksmen are an excellent ranged unit to add on.

I absolutely will. Thinking a purple and bone scheme for the Spire and a Gunmetal and Green scheme for the Kingdoms. Should look lovely for demos.
