    slaanesh are right around the corner

    Skaven and FECs each got exactly 1 new model there didn't they? I was thinking like multiple new model launches.

    they got an updated army book, and a lot of their model line wasn't that old

    they both got terrain pieces too, which is what sigmar is tending towards now, where each army gets a special piece of specific terrain

    Endless spells too I suppose. Clanrats are still a pretty old model aren't they? I don't know when they were updated last.

    FEC's model range seems way too same-y to me. Like, besides the bat monsters they're all naked ghouls carrying oversized bone clubs. I've seen a few different fan counts-as armies that are more like revenants in half-deteriorated clothes and finery that seemed a lot cooler.

    I guess it depends how you define 'revenant'. I meant in the sense of a mostly-normal looking reanimated human corpse, not the Blizzard 'we can't call it a ringwraith' ghost in robes and armor sense. I guess I should've said 'zombie'?

    then zambonis would be legion of nagash!

    FEC is all ancient nobles and their vassals/thralls

    they're all sapient, or at least reasonably so

    Which is why I didn't want to use the z-word. I was mainly trying to explain that they looked like former humans, unlike the malformed monsters of the official range.

    FEC are straight up a different species at this point

    they have been undead for so long that they would never resemble humans

    they might have been brettonians literally thousands of years ago, but in the intervening millennia they transformed into inbreeding cannibals

  • PiptheFairPiptheFair Registered User regular
    so not far from nobles really

    Instead of continuing to split hairs over undead terminology, these were the first example pics I could find on short notice of the kind of fan designs I've seen:
    5rv7j5gqihec.jpg
    bddkpsjxvraj.jpg

    As a concept, I feel like this lends itself to much more variety between unit types and within squads. It's not like any of what the FEC has is bad, it just seems too limited, to me.

    Yeah, I'm not debating about what kind of creatures FEC are or should be, I'm just saying the model range could stand to have more varied designs. I feel like we were having two different arguments.

    I love Strigoi, but I've always found the ghoul designs in Warhammer to be kind of boring. So finding out Strigoi had their own faction in AoS went from excitement to disappointment incredibly quickly. Those fan designs definitely seem more interesting.

    I am riding the fence about starting a FEC army at the moment and have done a lot of looking around for applicable conversions because the models are indeed pretty same-y. Reaper has some big muscly ghoul dudes that might work as characters, but it'd be a project to fill a nice variegated army.

    Space... what is the point of it? You have no idea.

  • Halos Nach TariffHalos Nach Tariff Can you blame me? I'm too famous.Registered User regular
    The FEC stuff is literally just the ghoul/strigoi elements from WHFB rebranded into their own faction, I think lore-wise they're quite fun, and they have some interesting stuff they can do in-game, but I was hoping an updated book would be more like the Daughters of Khaine release that adds a couple more dual kits into the range to increase variety, to really grab me they'd need to play more against he duality theme of how they are versus how they perceive themselves, I think.

    I agree but the FEC was not an army I was interested in. I was surprised how fast Carrion empire sold out as the skaven I was kind of interested in but not that part of the army.


    I am currently debating about the new Khrone demon stuff but I like many other people a backlog of stuff

    Chaos Terminators will never not have rows of spikes on their shoulders.

    I actually didn't think the CTerm sculpts were that old even, am I just wrong on that? The dynamism in these is nice.

    I wish Simon Spurrier would write a sequel to Lord of the Night, or would give permission for them to bring back Zso Sahaal and Mita Ashyn. They're probably two of my favorite characters and it's a damn shame we never find out what happens to them after the end of the book.

    I'd love to ask Simon about it, but I don't have a twitter account anymore and near as I can tell that's really the only way to contact him directly.

    So I wanna paint these orks, and I'm wondering if folks can give me suggestions for the most cost-effective purchasing of paints so I don't overspend? Assume I'm starting from scratch (given that due to me being a dumbo and not properly closing my paints most of mine have dried up), and that I want to do a base coat and maybe a bit of dry brushing/shading? I'd love to do details too but I know you can get really far into the weeds on that stuff.

    This is the starter set I bought.

    GW paints or no?

    If GW you want leadbelcher. It's their gunmetal. And for orks whatever shade of green that strikes your fancy for their skin. Biel-tan green is a good wash for ork skin. Nuln oil or agrax is a good general purpose wash. Then probably just use black and brown and a red for their clothes then hit all that with Nuln oil if you want to do this cheaply.

    GW paints, I was thinking, as I can just pick them up at the GW by my house. Thanks for the advice, I'll probably pick those paints up when I get paid next week.

    Keep in mind that layer paints are less opaque than base ones, so you'll probably want to use base paints as your primary colour for any given component.
