I was digging around today and found an old unopened box of 16 chaos marauders, reminded me of how much I enjoyed my old Warriors of Chaos army

Haven't dipped my toe in chaos at all with AoS, and it all seems a bit confusing. For example, I'm wondering what the Everchosen battletome is meant to encompass, while there isn't one at all for Slaves to Darkness who seem to be the classic Warriors of Chaos faction.

Wondering what the best path would be to go down to build a human-oriented chaos army

Slaanesh thrives when civilization becomes decadent. So far, we are only JUST NOW seeing cities pop up again, so it makes sense that Slaanesh has been missing. Mark my words, Slaanesh will reappear and one of the great free cities will have fallen to it.

>>
>>55817993
Actually I was desu and asked about this because I wasn't the only one not sure about GHB17 wording.
I always played it like this but decided to read the GHB17 allegiance rules. Read the page 116 by yourself if you want - the wording is just confusing and unclear compared to page 77 rules, at least for me.

It states that you have to choose an allegiance and then you have to use allegiance abilities SPECIFIC to THAT allegiance. It's like allegiance abilities are literally tied to specific allegiance so i.e. if you pick the Seraphon allegiance you have to use Seraphon Allegiance Abilities because they are specific to that allegiance. I know that it is not how it works but I wanted to ask GW about this anyway
>>

the elk ears are model specific, not interchangeable

I'm pretty new as well to be honest. I feel they might be easy to paint for me personally though because the different piece of there armor is segmented off really well. They do have these funky blocky bits mainly around the arm pits that I don't really know what to paint them. Also there wearing helmets so faces are hardish.

>>55821341
Not this anon but I also have two SoD boxes of these dudes. Models are fine - moldlines are easy to remove and well-placed. They are mono-pose and one-piece so they feel like chess pawns. The only meh thing about them are tiny faces (I really hate paiting human and elvish faces tho)

Two warlock engineers is unnecessary, only one can attempt warp-lightning. Make the rattling guns into two units of two, so it's easier to buff them if need be. Remove three jezzails. Add two units of 20 clan rats. These will be meat shields and objective holders for your army.

Have to have to take two Warlock-Engineers to run the Engine-Covens, though. Which tosses out an extra two shots during the Hero Phase of an already shooting-shooting army. And it leaves you with extra redundancy for casting, so that you are able to ideally get off 3 of 4 spells every turn while also giving you a second Warp Lightning battery after the first one self-mutilates or gets gibbed.

And you can't make Ratling Guns into units of two, per GHB. And there's really no buffs to speak of, either. The warpstone tokens only apply to single models.

And jezzails in a unit of 6 actually make a comical target for the Rattlegauge Warplock's special ability while also then being able to suffer the Mortal wounds fairly decently.

I was definitely intended to squeeze in Clan Rats, just trying to find a good hole to squeeze it in. I will probably end up having to just slice out three jezzails and I suppose a Warp Lightning Cannon to plug in 2x20 Clan Rats and another Ratling Gunner.

They said they'll include more females. Why did this get the ire of GW fanbase? I mean the Celestine model and cannoness, SoS, Candlehat inquisitor etc were cool minis. The female stormcasts still look really cool, and they're still fairly limited release. Feminists aren't "hijacking the hobby" or anything. It's just part of the changing times and preference towards a heterogeneous minis line.

For a 1k FEC army you're going to want to at least get two copies of the SC! box no matter how you plan on building it. Once you've done that it's just supplementing it depending on how you've build everything. There's a sample in the OP but if you're like me and get triggered by the fact it doesn't include the Abhorrant Ghoul King on his mount, you might want to keep him and just bring in more Ghouls/Horrors from the second box, and then maybe buy a Varghulf. That's what I'm going to do.

I sold my small Sylvaneth army due to being a noob at first when I was buying them and I learned I also need like shit ton of more trees to buy so I said fuck this shit and sold them off. But now I am craving some games. What army should I build anons? Want less number of individual model and more or less cheaper army in general.
>>
>>55826069
Warherds?
>>
>>55825635

all too dark, needs accent colors
>>
>>55826069
if all you care about is low cost and model count then stormcast
>>
>>55826080
How does the gold look on Durthu, though? Does it work?

Also, how would you further highlight the dryads? I was going for a spooky woods vibe.
>>
>>55826090
normally no but it just pissed me off that I was requiered to buy shittty tree terrain that is more expensive than the army models itself to play a proper game.
>>
>>55826129

gold looks alright, bit dingy but that's probably what you wanted. on a second, closer look, I think the dryads are fine. the yellow eyes and highlights help. durthu himself still looks way too muddy though. might improve once you paint the leaves and add some yellow like the dryads.
>>
>>55826138
another low cost army idea:

A chaos lord on daemonic steed (command ability buffs knights and chariots) along with, you guessed it, knights and chariots, with maybe a warshrine for some extra buffs.

Knights and chariots are fast, durable, and powerful, but a lot of points, leaving to low overall model counts. When chaos knights were reboxed for 40k, their price actually got reduced.

Even better is that there is a discounted box set that contains two chariots and five knights, for only the price of the two chariots.

>>
>>55826184
what about the ally box with knights and a chariot
>>
>>55826347
I mentioned that in the last line of my post. The 80 dollar ally box actually has two chariots

(normally 40 dollars each... if 10 knights is 60 dollars, then five knights is 30, so the box is 110 USD "value" but MSRP is only 80 USD, so that is a significant savings as long as you actually want everything in the box)

>>55826394
it is uncertain. Most of the wood elf kits are quite old by this point and they aren't particularly amazing at what they do.

have I fucked up, lads?

I bought the 'Ardboyz and Warchanter from the Ironjawz Start Collecting box from ebay without the Gore Gruntas, pretty much because I'm a poorfag and used the money saved to help buy the beginner paint, clippers and glue set + some other paints. I decided the Gore Gruntas were the most expendable from that set, despite them being the most expensive models in it, just because of the Warchanter and Ardboyz synergy together, and the Gore Gruntas' charge ability needing a better than average charge roll seemed pretty useless.

But now I seem to see people saying Gore Gruntas are basically the best Ironjawz unit, and that the models I did get aren't great.
>>
>>55827375
As far as i know, Gore Gruntas are good, since they are both fast and tanky, and do hace some punch, so you'll probably want them in your army. But at the same time, since they are quite a bit expensive and don't deal that much damage, you won't need more than an unit or two of them

The real bread and butter of Ironjawz are Brutes. You should have between 10 and 20 of them.

And 'Ardboys are good too, I have myself 35 of them, and I'll sonn have 4 more from the Shadespire expansion. (Gotta say I already had 20, I bought 10 with the ST! box, and another 5 from the Weirdnob Warband, but I'm not complaining).
>>
>>55827425
okay thanks, at least I don't feel like I've thrown money away now. It's so annoying that there's no good value way to get Brutes. Getting several boxes of those and a Maw-Krusha are going to bankrupt me

Nope. GW is too busy with STORMCAST ETERNALS for anything. Destruction is the pits. I want to start them because no one really plays destruction here, but I only really like the spider goblins, who have a grand total of 5 models. I don't see the point.

Wanderers have 6 heroes, and 6 units.

Of these, 1 hero come from the last year of WHFB, and 4 of the units. 1 unit is a repurposed High Elf kit from 8th edition as well.

So, if 1 unit and 5 heroes is "most" then sure, I guess.
>>
>>55828597
The big kicker for WE/Wanderers is that we have no plastic heroes, which puts a damper on the whole SC! thing. The easiest thing to do would be Prince, GG, EG/Rangers, SotT/WR, but idk if the pricing would be in line.

And what is the general opinion on brancwych vs branchwraith? I think that defensively used branchwych might be kinda good with hit debuff.

All that is left are a few kurnoth hunter bowmen and the treelord.
Should I go for a Durthu, an Ancient or the regular ol' treelord?

Your first one should always be the Treelord Ancient since he is the best general choice (the only choice besides Alarielle)

2nd one is usually Durthu since he is a great beatstick

>>55831434
Gnarled Warrior with Oaken Armour?
Or will that ensure my opponent trying to scratch my eyes out?

Thats generally the best combo

Most sylvaneth lists end up building into a Gnarlroot Wargrove; its a good starting point since its very flexible

Not sure if I want to invest into battalions, they did get quite expensive.

Yeah Gnarlroot isn't the auto-include it used to be, but it is still strong. You will have to sacrifice model count, but the abilities of the battalion can be worth it if utilised correctly.

I got to play some Shadespire today at my local GW, I offered to build the kit for the staff member as he was run off his feet all day, side note the models are gorgeous.

The game it's self is great, simple fast pace and surprisingly tactical, I played as the Korn guys and thoroughly enjoyed mobbing the storm cast. 8/10 would recommend
>>
>>55831939
Very nice feet coloring and transition into haunches and front legs. A critique might be the riders plume being the same color as the mount's hair gets it a little lost among the rippling hair and cloak bits, and it would be nice if it was immediately distinguishable which was rider and which was mount. Though of course flavor wise they'd want to dress similarly to honor each other.
>>
>>55832042
I still want to know the price of booster boxes
>>
>>55832283
Thanks!
Yeah the plume being the same colour as the mount is a bit of an issue as you said, but it also ties together with the rest of the army (I must also say I really like the idea you had of them honoring each other! But sadly I wasn't thinking like that when I painted them.)
>>
>>55832460

>>55832548
A similar tannish white to the mount's body would make a fitting plume color I think, though if all your dudes have that color plume then you gotta go for whole army look.
>>
>>55832840
Not bad I think
>>
>>55833037
Indeed not.
This game is design to be inexpensive, so it can spread fast and steal players from rival games.

GW didn't tell you yet, but there will be exclusive cards and other stuff only available to events, seasonal campaigns and tournaments.

You want cool stuff? You gotta play.
So if you and your friends play often it attracts more people, because that's how this kind of games work.

Not necessarily a bad thing, but something to keep in mind.

Bows and scythes are the way to go. Swords are not bad, but the additional range of the scythes is worth its weight in gold and bows are fantastic point removal.
Both Brachwraith and Branchwych are kinda shit, but the wych is slightly less garbage. If you don't need them for a battalion I can't recommend either.

Because a game should not change lore for the sake of changeing lore or to be inclusive. The fans like it because of what it is, if you change it to something they don't like just to attract a VERY small minotry audiance, your not going to make them happy. People should get into the hobby for what it is currently, not because it added more diversity.

>>
>>55836187
I tend to shuffle my weapons around, but both diverse gear and spam have their advantages. For example, the skypike is really nice to have when storming an objective that needs to be taken *right now* and your heavy lifters are currently busy elsewhere. Massed light skyhooks on the other hand are nice if there's an objective in your backyard to protect and you still want to contribute to the battle.
I've never run a unit without special weapons, so i can't comment on that, but I doubt there's much point to it. The dwarves of the company are not very good on their own.

It actually was. The nerf to Bellowing Tyrant, the tweak to how Battle Brew interacts with mounts, and the loss of our battalion took us from a hilariously effective meme army to just a meme army. Actually the reason for the Homebrew Allegiance chart I drafted up.

But yeah, properly buffed, a unit of 10 Spider Riders was vomiting out an average of 10 mortal wounds a turn. And that's just a small unit.

How can I model them make them usable in skirmish and also keep the futuristic look? Sure I'm gonna make graveyard-themed bases but I feel like it's not enough

well if u want to use the skyre abilities and relics then no u cant use stormvermin since they are not skyre. if u want to run skyre and stormvermin in a list then you will just be using a chaos allegience which is what i do since skaven are the least completed army imo

How do I make my Liberators less boring, /aosg/? I still have to layer the gold and highlight them, but still.
I just bought the starter pack for Khorne

I've enjoyed mine in my local GW's PtG campaign. My only minor complaint is that I wish the Endrinrigger healing ability on the boats triggered in every hero phase, not just your own, but then again if I didn't ram my boats into people's faces as melee weapons it probably wouldn't be as big of an issue.

Are Slayers actually good in this game? I don't remember them ever being good in WHFB.
>>
>>55839846
Fyreslayers, the Unforged model, or the compendium Slayer unit?
>>
>>55839846
unforged (the old slayer models) are okay if they get ignored for long enough

fyreslayers are a pretty strong faction all in all
>>

It's the same with 40k, honestly. That's why I thought the mortal wound thing was wrong.

Well fuck. That sounds awesome. It's a shame I missed that. Honestly, I think the spider grots are the only thing that interests me, and there just isn't enough of them to make me want to play. Sure sucks to dislike Stormcasts.

STORMCAST GET MODELS BOOOOO

Never mind the fact that nearly every other faction had complete armies for years, if not decades before AOS.
>>
I fucking hope Aelves are the next release so people fucking shut up about them.
>>
>>55841037

why thanks you, I'm quite satisfied of it, since these are my first minis ever.
I got tons of good advices from /aosg/
>>
>>55841153
No, they will just want more.

Namely High Elf players.

Every time another factions gets something, they covet it. If that faction is an Elf faction, they decide that it is their RIGHT to have it.

I remember when the Wood Elves got their 8th ED update. The High Elf players were all saying shit about how it is unfair, and they should get access to magic arrows, and they should be able to have both Martial and Murderous Prowess, and they should be getting access to Dark magic to.
>>
>>55841140
Stormcast had a complete army when they first came out. Then they decided to give them another mini faction's worth of new models. And then they did it again.
>>
>>55841222
>High elves
>Dark magic

That's retarded.
>>
>>55841140
>every other faction had complete armies for years
They did, and then AoS decided to chop those armies apart in strange and bizarre ways. Just look at Death, you have a bunch of barely-supported sub-armies with some that even have Allegiances for devoting yourself to those 4-unit lines. And the High Elves that >>55841222 is sperging about are a great example as well. Elves on birds or bird-speed horses are one faction, Elves on dragons or dragon-cosplaying horses are another, Elves that do magic are a third, etc. There's no cohesion for these sharded armies like there are for "real" ones, and their limited model ranges mean that they're unlikely to get Allegiances which means there's never really a reason to run them as anything other than Generic Allegiance armies.

>>55841539
To be fair, High Elf players are retarded. They were spoiled forever with their fucking "Always Strike First" bullshit, and they seemed to just expect to be Super Aryan Elves in rules as well as fluff.

I will say, GHB at least gave a glimmer of hope in the fact that they realized how hilarious they had dumpstered their Spoopy Ghosts. Now, the ghost faction can actually a variant of summoning that's available in all of their warscrolls but not to their army. Now, the ghost faction can actually power up the Black Coack that belongs to their faction despite having zero mages to make it work.

Yet still, the SC box contains a Mortis Engine. Because it's SC Malignants which is a meaningless keyword that doesn't even match up to a faction but rather is shared among the Death armies.

Still working on my armies on parade board

I want to start up nighthaunt, but I don't know that its even worth it.
>>
>>55842633
Are you willing to be a double Mourngul faggot? Because if you are, it's actually a hilariously potent army to play. One of my friends runs it and intentionally handicaps himself when he plays because otherwise, it's an army that is very easy to become a nofunallowed WAAC tourneyfag army. Plus, they can entirely shut down Spiderfang Grots to the point that I may as well cede.
>>
>>55842633
>>55842719
Oh, and another thing. Just buy the SC box. Even though the Mortis Engine isn't Nighthaunt, it is worth its ally points in gold to for the heal. Much like the Mourngul, always bring one if not two.
>>
>>55842633
I'd get the SC but personally would wait till Malign Portents drops to get too deep in a non-FEC Death army
>>
>>55842836
Why? FEC are one of the worst Death armies atm.
>>
>>55842871
Just because I doubt they'll get any new units from the event, maybe one hero at most.
>>
>>55842572
Why does the river have raised banks rather than being sunk into the ground?
>>
>>55842908
...Yes, and Nighthaunt are probably the best Death faction currently, and don't really need any new units from the event. They are self-sufficient and hilariously strong, thanks to their gimmicks.
>>
>>55842911
I just followed a step by step guide in the How to Make Wargames Terrain book when they showed how to make a river. And it's my first time making a parade board, I got to start somewhere
>>
>>55842719
It's FW, so I'm probably not running even going to run a single one. Hardly seems worth the hassle and cost regardless of performance. Didn't they also get nerfed?

>>55842778
Except that NH can't ally the Mortis engine, only the coven throne because they can only ally Deathlords and Soulblight.

>>55842951
Why is that? I'm not trying to make a cheesy army. I just want to play the spoopy ghost army.

Asking.... for a friend yeah that guy

>>55843256
The Mourngul is still a titan on the table, and it is very much worth its points.

And you actually can ally in the Mortis Engine because the Wraith Fleet actually does a lot to make the Nighthaunt Allegiance less than necessary, given the fact that you either take it and generic Death or just Nighthaunt. Wraith Fleet's outflank may not be as precise as Ethereal Rulers, but it does also come with a nice attack on the enemy's Bravery. Remember, Conduits only exists to hot-fix the Black Coach and Deathless Spirits is just Deathless Minions. Especially given the ability to get the Mortis Engine, it's now very worthwhile to just run generic Death with a Nighthaunt flavor.

And because the have one of the best gimmicks of the whole Death "we don't give a fuck about your attacks" shtick. You don't give a fuck around Rend which does wonders with your 3-4+ save combined with a further Invuln save. You have the lack of decent ranged attacks that most of Death suffers, but you make up for it by being able to vomit out Mortal wounds. Even Spirits Hosts. A unit of 3 has 18 attacks, with a 6 dealing a mortal wound. And on the topic of Spider Venom, you have the Mourngul to shut-down any "on a 6" unit, be it Spiderfang Grots or Executioners.
>>
>>55843502
Except running generic death means I don't get Spirit Hosts as battleline, and I don't want to buy and a paint a bunch of shit in don't want to use.
>>
>>55843502

not the other guy but thanks for all this info. I have a good clump of ghosties and didn't even think of trying wraith fleet.
>>
>>55839217
Unless he fields them as allies.
>>
>>55842911

It's a man-made river for defensive purposes.

There, There's your stupid explanation
>>
>>55843088
Oh okay. Those style rivers are good for modular boards where you want to move the river position. However, for a display board that has fixed elements, I would personally cut it into a board of thick foam instead to make it sunken.
>>
>>55843322
If they could reproduce, why would sigmar need to keep reforging mortals into immortals when he could just breed immortals.
>>
stormcast don't like mixing with muggles. They only breed with other ((((chosen)))))

You guys think the new Death models from Shadespire (Sepulchral Guard) will be a bunch new units, e.g. a unit of harvesters, or a single mishmash unit with various weapons?

And does every body agree that a unit of harvesters will be awesome, cleaving through horde unit with ~3 (weak) attacks per model.
