>THEY DO NOT TO SIGMAR. SIGMAR THE DECEIVER. SIGMAR THE BARBARIAN. SIGMAR THE TRAITOR. WHO ALMOST COST AN UNDYING KING HIS KINGDOM

-The Great Necromancer Nagash

Holy Shiz.

I just listened to the new audiobook. Nagash had enough of Sigmar's treachery and lies. No longer will he tolerate Sigmar stabbing him in the back.

Nagash is on a warpath and he will not rest until Sigmar is cast down and all the souls that Sigmar stole from him are returned to the Underworld. There would be no alliance or peace with Sigmar whose word means nothing.

The Fyreslayers think that Ur-Gold contains the essence of Grimnir. They use it to craft their runes and stuff.

The Auric Runemasters craft the runes and also acts like a chaplains of the lodges. They make sure their comrades are not consumed by their craving for gold and it's their duty to distribute the gold between the men.

Well in whfb, slayers were dwarves who did something so terrible they shaved all their hair off except for a dyed mohawk and sought out the biggest doom they could. They fought without armor because they sought redemption in a glorious death.

These new faggots are just a tasteless aping of what made slayers awesome in the old game, without understanding why they worked. The contrast between stoic, sensible dwarves and wild berserkers was neat. But In aos, EVERYTHING is cranked up so absurdly beyond reason it loses any distinctive flavor in exchange for endless armies of muscle dudes and overdesigned weapons

I don't know can you field irregular troops in the Guard? Or do you just list them as guard and dress them as militia?

Hey, don't get me started on Choas Cultists again. They came so close to making it, the a core troop choice, giving choice figs in the box set. and then they took it all away by making the incapable of taking out a tank. They could have given the krak grenades or a melta-bomb or some ratty ass new kind of molotov coctail. But no they had to pidgin hole you into buying tanks and Marines. Fucking assholes, like they couldn't just let people be different. I felt like after all these years they we metal heads and I was punk rock, and punk rock never had a voice in 40k, it was always death metal space marines. And the one chance anyone had to make an irregular force and they fucked it. I like they said fuck Anarcho-punk. Well I think it is time they realized that you can't force everyone to like death metal.

It's very useful considering how much slower the spirit hosts are compared to the mortis engine and hexwraiths.

It also allows you to push hexwraiths through enemy units and then bring them back, or bait your opponent into thinking your forces are disparate and scattered before unifying them in an instant and punching a hole through the enemy line.

You see I never got this "GW wants to sell more than a dozen minis" argument against specialist games. Every game of all the specialist systems I played your warbands eventually became really large. In a couple of gaming circles I played in we started experimenting with insurgent networks and warbands. Still small skirmish gaming but where we scaled it up to 2 or 3 units. It didn't seem like it would be that hard for GW to scale these games up into the the range of 36 models and a few rickety vehicles. It felt like something you could do really easy with an expansion box.
Then your Necormunda militia/mercenary/cult insurgency could be an auxiliary to your Guard army, fodder for your Chaos Marines, Or combine a couple of these irregular groups to make self styled bandit army or some kind of space pirates. Sure they would be squishy, but they would be cheep point costs and GW could sell mountains of them. The whole idea would be hugely customizable and it wouldn't unbalance the game because the basis of all these irregular factions would always be jobber level dudes. None of them would ever get to the level of power armor or Lemon Russes.

The idea is even easier through the lenses of Gorka Morka. Hell it would just look like your average Ork army.

I can see the counter argument where people have to keep track of every leg wound or equipment variation. But it just seems like a point/currency system could eventually purchase your unit some kind of elite status that would be reflected in the squads stats, moral, and equipment. The original gang would buy/recruit new squads of jobbers that maybe didn't have as much autonomy if you scaled it down to a skirmish level or acted as sentries. When you scaled thing back up to play with the big boys you would maybe have one auxiliary command unit that was your original gang and a couple of jobber units that marines could eat for breakfast. The mere role playing aspect of it would push people to expand their collections.
>>
>>44676813
I dunno if they really count as greedy mercenary, since their desire for regular gold is a lie that the Fyreslayers are happy to have it disseminated.

They are more like zealots that are willing to do anything to get parts of their god back.

I don't like the model myself that much, but I'd say it's a rather easy to paint model. You have no smooth spaces and some kind of structure everywhere. AND you can paint it in flashy colors.
Look at this pic >>44677807
the smaller red scales can be done by drybrushing or just washing and the darker carapace is 'just' highlighting. A fucking lot of highlighting, but if you painted some minis before it's not impossible. It will just take A LOT of time.

no point in the aos threads, but the OP is the GW guy who was shitposting fantasy in the WHFB thread, so he will make them til this shit system is canned to remain on their payroll

I'm actually wondering what will GW do: 1) just simply axe age of sigmar, 2) axe it and bring back fantasy, or 3) just give aos the hobbit-treatment and freeze releases but keep the system to don't lose face

I don't think they have a good outcome in any scenarios. Maybe the second is their best shot, but then again, they would alienate the few aos guys who remained with them, without the certainty of the KoW/9th age guys coming back. It would be worth for the hilarity factor the shill podcasts/other shills would present as they would suddenly agree that AoS was shit and welcome back a real 9th edition. Now to think on it, I'll enjoy 1 and 3 as well, dis gun be gud anyways

Nagash betrayed the alliance of order by making a deal with archaon, fled to his realm and hid from sigmar; then archaon didn't respect the deal and fucked nagash over.

Now nagash is overreacting about sigmar saving some souls from going to the underworld because he's the tyrannical lord of death and his toys shouldn't be taken.
Of course he's not even considering that these are the same souls getting fucked by his betrayal and the consecutive age of chaos.

Carnac is trolling while nagash is being ignorantly egocentric.

Unless what has been stated so far is purposefully wrong or missing some pieces to let GW reveal a totally unexpected third player who has just as planned'd everything under sigmar and nagash noses, in this case nagash is just ignorant and egocentric.
Candidates include but are not limited to manfred, be'lakor, morathi & son.

>>44688569
>Carnac is trolling while nagash is being ignorantly egocentric.

Said the guy who hasn't listened to the audiobooks. What is Sigmar is doing is stealing tons of souls from Nagash. This theft is weakening and killing the poor Necromancer. He is not overreacting. His life and power is on the line. You said some "some"? You lying bastard. You seem to forget that few souls survive the reforging. The rest of the souls are destroyed and become one with Azyr. Sigmar is screwing Shyish whil empowering Azyr. How can anyone justify this? By sending the Stormcast to Nagash's doorstep, Sigmar was taunting Nagash with his theft. Did he expect that Nagash would look at this kindly? Sigmar sent these Stormcast to their death, nay a fate worse than death. Now Nagash will flay Tarus's soul until he knows how Sigmar has usurped master over dead souls from him.

Nobody is being arrogant and egoistical here but you.

looking at the sprues on the GW site, these new dwarves are incredibly static, almost monopose models. chances are that you will get 3-4 poses in a 10-men unit, so you will have to deal with duplicates

All we know that Nagash and the Undead are convinced that Sigmar backstabbed them first while Sigmar thinks that Nagash was the backstabber.

Archaon, according to Eveerchosen BT, has put his agents and spies in the alliance of Order. The agents tore rifts between the alliance of Order and then Archaon sundered communication between the faction of the alliance. Archaon engineered the collapse of the alliance from within so the truth might be that nobody initially betrayed each other. Nagash might have cut a deal with Archaon because he feared that Sigmar was going to betray him. This thought might have bee inspired by one of Archaon's agents.

What I want to figure out is who were the agents of Archaon in the alliance of Order.

>he's even got a space marine backpack on his back

Newbie to Warhammer in general here. Why were Sigmar and Nagash ever allied anyway? I thought they were mortal enemies, what with Nagash being undead Death faction and Sigmar being humans and stuff.
>>
>>44688933
The enemy of my enemy is my friend, and all of that.

They stood no chance to defeat Chaos unless they united their powers. Which makes me wonder how Sigmar expects to defeat Chaos now that Nagash told him to piss off.
>>
>>44688963
Are the vampires aligned with Nagash as well or are they their own thing? What about the Tomb Kings?

More puzzling is that Nagash still thinks that he can destroy the Chaos Gods. How arrogant must he be to imagine that he can do it alone? Did his numerous defeats at the hands of Archaon teach him nothing?

On a sidenote, Nagash continues his tradition of kidnapping, wedding, and then gruesomely torturing women in AoS.
>>
>>44689061
All undead are driven by instinct to obey Nagash. Most vampires consider Nagash their god and they obey him. However, Vampires are willful creatures so you bound to find some that do their own thing, especially in the time Nagash spent recovering from his defeat.

>>44689597
That's the beauty of it.They offer themselves to Nagash.

Nagash tells them that he will spare their nations if they agree to marry him. When they agree, he takes them and tortures them to death and then turns them to Undead waifus. Then he destroys their nations anyways.

>>
>>44689919
I doubt these miniatures were designed with square bases in mind, maybe the concept was in development at the time, but it's unlikely the actual realization of the molds was made with ranks in mind.
They sit on 32mm bases according to the site, while normally dwarfs would have fit on 20x20mm, plus the open poses would make them hit each other faces with their axes most of the time BUT many of them also alternate having an arm up in the air and another forward or to one side, you may try with a bit of patience to put them close togheter, or you can make them fill more than one base and create a disorganized looking unit of 20 slayers from 10 fyreslayer acting as fillers.

Hey it had a good run before the mods got involved. Everyone on when I was posting loved it. And you're a sell out piece of shit if you like Age of Shitmar. All and all this feels like business as usual when it comes to Games Workshop. I'm never buying GW retail ever again, and I have talked to 100 people that won't either. But Games Workshop wouldn't know that would they, since they don't do market research?

For everyone who hasent read it yet, the guy that wrought 90% of GW's games just laid it all out.

Dont go so hard with the wash into the horns and helmet, but otherwise it looks good on the skintone. Of course its hard to see what it looks like in real life. The axe looks like it might be too heavily washed, too. And if your'e going to wash you don't need to do highlights on the pants or cloth, you can just drybrush them.

Drybrush + wash on organic areas and trying to avoid metalic or 'painted' areas is how i typically paint.

Dude watch out, if GW employees hear about you knocking Bugman's food court they will file in here and spend half the thread defending it. You laugh, but it has happened before.

Now that I'd pay to see (but no more than a fiver, I'm not that interested).

You know even though I never played a lot of Lord of the Rings you never here people knock it. I think that is because everyone knew it was the right thing to. Everyone knew that Rick would do his best to make it a good game. And LOTR was a great all around game and true to the story. The fans and the story came first with LOTR and that is why GW cant stand it anymore.

Hey guys, I've moved on to a better place to discuss this game. There's an Age of Sigmar Facebook group with about 2.3k members and is very active. Questions are answered quicker and lots of good discussions daily. It definitely renewed my faith in the fan base and in the game. If you're sick of the stupid shitposting and haters, it's free of them.

You pretend to not be a socially stunted autist and speak to your opponent about what you think would be a fair game.

It works better for narrative scenarios than pitch battles. Some of the most fun I've had since I was a kid smashing army men together with friends, really.

How could they replace a functioning system with this? I understand releasing it beside it as a loose way to play, but what were they thinking?

That's the one issue about it. If you have all day to have fun with friends, its great. When you have 90 minutes to play a game with your local chucklefuck at the FLGS who is sublimating their needs into a board game, it's not as nice.

It helps that I usually try to minmax everything in a competitive fashion. It has sort of prepared me to eyeball balanced encounters well.

A game can be fun even if you lose, though. You just have to not be a salty faggot and enjoy the ride. :^)

The marketing team looked down the possibility of an actual ruleset being a great deal of selling wargame's miniatures because games workshop sells miniatures, not games; space marines sell, inserting them in fanta...Age of Sigmar(c) will surely be enough, and our customers are collectors anyway, not that we did marketing researchs about it, we don't believe in facts and hire on attitude, not capabilities after all ;^)

So in regards to Manfred in the last audio book.

[Spoiler]So why did they make Manfred a "good" guy after perviously having him fuck over everyone's plans to save the world that was. Now he wants to be butt buddies with some stormcast because of muh trust. Feels like some like Vlad would have been a more sensible choice but I guess he doesn't have a big plastic model. That said I really enjoyed the audio books best AOS story I've seen so far[/spoiler]

Why there's no anon posting new Fyreslayers' fluff from White Dwarf 102?
>>
>>44694488
Because it's shit. If Wargaming had something like filler content, then it would be fyreslayers fluff.

Let me sum it up for you.

"Super greedy mercenaries fight for anyone for the sake of Ur-Gold which they believe contain the essence of their sundered god"
>>
>>44694488
because maybe there's no fluff to talk about apart
>fyreslayer are born from the fight between grimnir and vulkatrix
>they make runes in their own skin
>they collect gold, but especially ur-gold that contains the essence of grimnir, to the point of acting as mercenaries
>they're, like, totally cool and angry and shit
>I mean, they ride giant lizards and are obsessed with fire
>>
>>44694488
I'm not typing it all out because I'm lazy, and can't post pics, but anything you want filling in on? A few bits and pieces that may not have been leaked so far
>The ur-gold runes really do empower them with mystic power, although every reference is careful to say "they believe" it's grimnir's power or something rather than stating it outright.
>They get gold-lust for more once they've had some ur-gold runes done on them, but the bonds of kinship help control it, along with their priests (who make sure every warrior gets his due of gold).
>Each lodge's ur-gold is kept in a rune-sealed vault that only the runefather can open. Keys are indeed a big deal, every model carries one somewhere.
>They're still just as honourable as dwarfs, once they give their word they don't break it, and get just as pissed off at oath breakers.
>There's a reference that the runemaster priests may share some heritage with "similar fire-obsessed bearded folk from the world-that-was".
>>
>>44694667
There's more lore than just that.

>Auric Runemasters are the High-priest of the fyreslayers. They forge runes, can sense Ur-Gold and are the lorekeepers.
>Vulkite Berzerkers are the footsoldiers.
>Hearthguard Berzerker are the personal guards of the leaders of a Lodge, appointed by the Runefathers.
>Hearthguard are like bank guards that guard the gold and the priesthood. Their Magmapikes are weapons that shoot molten rock and is powered by runes.
>>
>>44694589
>Because it's shit.

So? Just like anything else in AoS
>>
>>44694988
yeah, but that's the background of the warscrolls

does the white dwarf at least reveal who the fuck is the grimmwrath berserk?
assuming the runeson is the guy with the big axe on foot, that the runesmither and the runefather are the guys on the salamanders and that the battlesmith is the standard bearer.
>>
>>44695991
Afraid not, it only goes into detail about the vulkite beserkers, the two hearthguard units, and the runemaster. There's a little bit about the runefather, but not even confirmation of what model is what. Oh, and the auric runesons are the runefather's literal sons, and are a bit like princes. In one bit of fluff they go off to set up their own lodges after the runefather falls in battle, carrying on the legacy.

But, generally, they seem to be keeping fluff about the other units back until they appear in their own WD. Sorry.

Yeah. I mean, I'm one of those weirdos that like the stormcast models, and I was getting fucking fed up with the drawn-out stormcast release after a while.
>>
>>44696287
That's a quick way to make people lose interest and for them to lose money.

To make maximum amount of money one has to bring new lore only when relevant and attached to a product itself. A white dwarf just help sets up what they are going to sell. It's not a battletome and it shouldn't be.

Where I live there is no local group. The nearest GW store is an hour away. Most retailers in this area cater to modelers, ccg's and rpg's. I was in the Army until 2011 and in Colorado Springs where my last duty station was there were 3 GW stores within 15 minutes of me and WHFB was King. At least as popular as 40k. So I ended up with 5 different armies. Now I have noone but my wife and my seven year old son to play with. However, I have convinced 3 people to start collecting/playing AOS. One bought a starter set on the cheap, one is going to be starting a Nurgle force and one was gifted a Doomfire Warlocks box and is now going to build a DE army.

you know what would be fucking good? scenario 2 happens, and all the fucking droids who changed to shitty round bases now will have to rebase AGAIN... OR, because we are talking about GW, they will come up with $100 for 3 round-to-square movement trays, and they will have to buy them

actually at that point, they deserve to be milked by GW, I'd even approve it

Friend wants to get the lizardmen box set that just came out, so I decided to go in with him and get one

Thinking about either Orcs or Warriors of Chaos

Thoughts?
>>
>>44698438

warriors of chaos if you want your army to be in the spotlight and supported for the length of the life of Age of Sigmar. GW is 100% behind them unlike their chaos counterparts in 40k. Orcs are iffy.
>>
>>44698438

WoC is the better value, given that the units are really good and essential in 8th/9th/KoW, and it really doesn't matter at all in AoS as anything is 3+/4+

Do those new boxes have bits to build other things? Can I have Coven Throne and Black Knights?

So I'm deciding to take part in a Path of Glory campaign, but I can't decide what to take for my starting choices.

I want to represent Slaanesh, but I'm having a hard time deciding between a marked Manticore riding Lord, or a Lord on Demonic Mount.

In either case, I was thinking of taking a Chimera, a unit of warriors, and 2 Marauder horseman squads (which seem better than the Hellstriders, if only because of the javelins).

Anyone have any thoughts? Other than how shit Age of Sigmar is and how we're not allowed to like it because abloobloobloo.

Be frank, mercenary tribe ain't new to any fantasy world, the worst part is GW make tyem a replacement of a radically different slayer clan. More or less like WHFB replaced with AoS. Veterans dislike change, hate the new comer as usual, nothing new there.
>>
Why is Age of Sigmar art so very god-tier?
>>
>>44703417
Because they hire scrub tier artists, give them minimum wage and a ridiculously low amount of time forcing them to not complete the art with the proper details, to ignore an accurate study of proportions and to use cheap photoshop effects to fill it rapidly.

There's nothing of god-tier but a few good pieces from dainton and boyd, who are, incidentally, what remains of the old guard of artists.

Can someone answer this for me:

If Fyreslayers are not the same as Trollslayers and are actually mercenary berzerkers trying to find as much Ur-gold as possible...

Why the fuck don't they wear armour?

Because they're zealots and want to be as similar to Grimnir as possible.

The WD says that the Fyrealayers look (Fyre because poor literacy is kool!) was adopted from the Slayers of the Old World.

>>44706487

So they go around unarmoured because it's an idiot holdover from a unit type that no longer exists from a setting that was ended by the game that is adopting and misappropriating elements from it?

Exactly.

You got it.

They were given the description "Dwarfen Religious Zealots with a hardon for fire" and all they could bring us was Trollslayer Light?

I think in Europe more people are playing 9th age than AoS. On more I mean A LOT more, like 10:1 ratio

Which further proves how good GW's plan of rebooting was

Why does /tg/ have the worst janitors? When questioning when people playing Age of Sigmar decided to become cucks, being fucked by GW as it were, I instantly got a ban request made by a janitor, for "Off-Topic".

But when the Warhammer Fantasy RP General endured almost a week of non-stop shitposting and off-topic faggotry, absolutely nothing happened and nothing was done, despite multiple reports and vocal requests by multiple people in the thread(s).

This made me think. Staying on topic, could it be that Age of Sigmar just happens to attract the worst kind of people?

Why is that?

Discuss.
>>
>>44706487
You know "fyre" is old english, right?

>>44707371
I think the european scene has always played more WHFB than 40k. And AoS is meant to appeal to 40k players.

That's grimnir, gotrek is nowhere to be seen heard or read in AoS, GW has apparently completely ignored or disregarded the story of THE slayer in the end times.

Not that I'm caring much about it, the less end times is taken into consideration, the better.

Not really. There's just no reason for him to turn up.

There was no reason for grimnir to turn up since he gave his place as god to gotrek.

Unless the guy they call grimnir is in truth gotrek but nobody, including gotrek himself, cares about this.

>>44709406
Unless Grimnir inherited the Wind of Fire from the Elf guy that died in ET.

Just finished Call of Archaon. It's worth a read, I'd say. Some spoilers:

A bit of a shame Mir didn't make it, he was pretty interesting and I'd have liked to see what happened next with him. Hopefully his stormcast double will turn up sometime.

Bule didn't deserve to serve Archaon, imo, he was too obsessed with serving Nurgle and tending the garden to work for the overarching victory of chaos.

Zuvius seemed pretty deserving, breaching the Vardenspire and reaching the throne room is pretty impressive. A bit odd that recruiting one varanguard involves the aspirant killing several other varanguard, but maybe that's just chaos.

Was the battle at the end the first time the stormcast have lost in a novel? Given how many varanguard fell it seemed like a bit of a pyrrhic victory, but who knows how many of the buggers Archaon has.

Archaon's army is like the mortal realms. Infinite in scope. He can lose a million varanguard and it wouldn't make a difference.
>>
>>44709521
There are 8 orders of Varanguard. Each one has thousands of Varanguards.

Why do you think the loss of 3-5 Varanguard in the novel means something? Dude, you have no perspective.
>>
>>44709521
>Was the battle at the end the first time the stormcast have lost in a novel?

No.

Check the first novel where Zuvius appears. Also Call of Chaos has a Stormcast getting curbstomped 9 times by a Bloodbound warband. The ninth time was very epic and brutal.

And that's all the rules leaks so far, although presumably we can guess the weapon profiles for the runefather/smiter on magmadroth at least.

Given the rider is the same model as >>44711003, seems the kit might get you a ridden monster and two heroes on foot. If it's priced like other monsters (carnosaur say) that may mean it's not too bad a deal. IF

Looking again, think the runefather/runeson share a body, so you only get one extra hero (unless you get enough bits to kitbash the third hero with another fyreslayer).

One big lizard and one guy on foot.
>>
>>44712032
Sadly not, you can put a hero on foot in addition to the one riding the monster. A bit like the carnosaur kit where you either get a saurus or skink hero on foot as well. But more expensive than the carnosaur kit by, er, about the price of a hero on foot.

Nottingham, UK. I'm right by Warhammer World and play there regularly.

AoS is fucking dead there. Loads of advertising everywhere, and to get in you need to walk up a big flight of stairs decorated with AoS banners, and walk through the shop where literally the first thing you see is AoS stuff. But nobody is playing it in the games hall. You might see one or two games, but people turn up, have a 15 minute game, then pack up and leave.

Even though Fantasy is still played less than 40K, the amount of Fantasy players at Warhammer World far outstrips the number of AoS players. Last time I went there were about 10 games of Fantasy being played, vs 1 game of AoS.

If it's a dead game at the HQ, makes you wonder about the state of it elsewhere.
