    You guys saw the new ally system they're teasing? It seems to imply the possibility of mixing and matching freely, and definitely cross-grand alliance.

    Could be cool, or could be busted. (Or both.)

    Given all the trouble they're having with 'soup' lists over in 40K, I'm kind of surprised they'd be willing to try it.

    Mm, my hope is that it will be quite limited in scope (after all there are some factions where a mercenary cross-over doesn't make much sense!) and more like a Dogs of War situation where certain specific units can be bought in, maybe? Or it could even just be something on the level of Malign Portents which isn't really rolled into the matched play arena that much?

    god I hope it does not turn out like soup

    I mean, there are already order lists that are effectively soup that make a showing, mostly having to do with phoenixes

    So, are any of the age of Sigmar books worth Reading, and if so which ones would be good to start with and which to avoid.

    I'll be kind of surprised it we don't see a new elf (either Tyrion or Malerion) faction alongside Slaanesh stuff in a starter sometime this year.

    My brother whom has a high elf dragon house army (i forgot the name of the province it was from) and a wood elf armies. He loudly complains about how his armies are now display items when i work on my DoK army

    Does AoS still have the Empire troops and Brettonian knights? I could never decide if I wanted to paint the knights or a bunch of pistoliers on horseback with cannons.

    Sort of? As I understand it, they're kind of in a similar position to Index-only units in WH40K. Brettonia seems to still be listed as a whole faction, but the Empire's units are split up across several minor Order factions: Empire, Ironweld Arsenal, Free Peoples, and Collegiate Arcane. Note that the Empire had it's own knightly orders who are still under that faction name. Also, I think Brettonia are out of production, but I don't know about the former Empire model range.

    Caledor! Named for the mage who started the Vortex and saved Ulthuan.

    Though didn't he come back in the end times, on a par with Teclis?

    They definitely have points; but no battalions, allegiance traits, or artifacts aside from the generic Order ones - and they will most likely never get any. They also can't ally with anyone. So you could play them in matched play, I suppose, but I doubt you could do so in a tournament. Their points also don't seem to get updated.

    But aside from a few sidelong glances from the Flesh Eater Courts fluff, they do not exist in-universe anymore.

    I wonder if these style of good natured fun to watch (and look like fun to make) videos will end when the company stops making just dumptrucks of cash. I feel like its inevitable and were in a full golden age "you want to do what? fuck it go for it" period.

    Edit: This post sounds super (and unnecessarily) negative to me now. I didn't intend for it to be. It's a definite hard turnaround from before, I hope they keep it up.

    Good-natured videos are kind of part of the reason they are making dumptrucks full of cash. Some cheeky videos of them getting in front of some rumors and leaks were one of the first signs of the turnaround.

    I also imagine that in the scale of things, these videos cost relatively very little to make, and reap disproportionate rewards in terms of fan engagement and positive PR.

    with the preview of Forbidden Power


    https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/05/14/forbidden-power-the-lore/

    They mention Teclis so they finally do what was High Elves {but there is also Tyrion so who knows}


    I got Looncurse so my brother has warmed up to the ideal of playing with the not wood elves

  • honoverehonovere Registered User regular
    I think Teclis is only involved in thaat he built the enlightenment engines that Sigmar and Grungi then turned into the penumbral engines that hid the Vaults.

  • Golden YakGolden Yak Burnished Bovine The PIT, level 26Registered User regular
    I think the Deepkin are sort've the new high elf analog - pale and pretty with lots of colorful fancy clothes (that are made of fish and/or water).

    Though since they ran away from Teclis he may have cooked up some new race. And we still don't have any elves from Tyrion or Malekith yet. Plenty of room to explore more elves from those two.

    's gonna be as bad as Warcraft with all the elf sub-races in the end...

  • honoverehonovere Registered User regular
    Deepkin are raiders with a slave/servant caste and a bunch of monsters. To me they feel closer to Dark Elves (corsair) and maybe Wood Elves (single biome focus).

    Considering how all the god created new elf races are made from the souls from Slannesh's belly I bet all of them will have some deep flaw. The "good" elves will probably be only the remnant model ranges from oldhammer. Swifthawk agents seem to show up the most in the fluff so far.

    Not pictured:
    1. Harpies (Night Elf worshippers of a wind goddess cursed by Azshara)

    4. Keepers of the Grove & Dryads (centaur-like offspring of Night Elf mother-deity Elune and Malorne, a divine giant white stag)
    5. Centaurs (benighted offspring of a second-generation Keeper and a daughter of the Queen of the earth elementals)

    I'm confused where my Nighthaunt allegiance book sits compared to this new Legion of Grief allegiance coming in Forbidden power.

    A slightly different flavour or a full replacement?

    It seems like a sidegrade, and a lot of comments on what it gives you made it sound like it wasn't that great. It at least isn't the normal level of 'op' that you see in new faction releases.

  • Halos Nach TariffHalos Nach Tariff Can you blame me? I'm too famous.Registered User regular
    Mmm, it seems more like the Firestorm city allegiances from a few years ago, which were like alternatives to mixed Order lists if you took units from certain order factions to represent specific cities. Forbidden Power in general seems to revolve around a more narrative game/campaign structure given the nature of the artefacts previewed today (which is fun, certainly), so I'm assuming the two new army options will be in line with that philosophy.

    I guess I’m just a bit grumpy that my spooky boys were the last book to come out before this trend of giving everyone a free terrain piece and like the idea of getting in on this gravesite action.

    It is a bit of a shame, I also think they perhaps overestimated the value of ignoring rend across the board with the Nighthaunt so they're a little overcosted in general. (Or it could just be that they're best units are more valuable in a Legion of Nagash allegiance so that's all you see at competitive events.)



  • PiptheFairPiptheFair Registered User regular
    the biggest weakness of nighthaunt is mortal wounds obliterate them

    give them a 5+++ for mortal wounds and they suddenly become a much more reliable force
