    I'm hearing that while Cursed City sold out online, stores did get a fair few copies (if anyone had tried to pre-order and missed out).

    I am in no position to get it now. I'm really hoping that they do another run in like 6 months or more (or allow a digital version some years hence), but realize I probably will miss out.

    I still feel it was not a one and done printing but a first printing due to the pandemic
    But really we will see

    They super milked Blackstone for expansions and will probably intend to do so again. As such more base game being produced would be fully logical.

    Now I'm wondering if Belakor is still even in Slaves to Darkness or if he's just a pure daemons thing now.

    After the destruction of the old fantasy world, each of the winds of magic kinda formed into its own gigantic realm (like the Old World would fit into a corner of most realms) where the middle is relatively normal but the further you get to the edge the more magical and insane everything everything gets.

    The major protagonists of the End Times in the Old World are now the Gods of the new World but at least some of them actually roam the physical realm and exist in the game.

    Here's a timeline of the setting
    https://ageofsigmar.com/timeline/

    The latest developements were about Nagash, the God of Death subsuming every other god of death and afterlife and becoming te surpreme ruler of everything. He was partially succesful until he had a minor setback lately
    Teclis, formerhigh elf mage, now aelven god of wisdom* killed him**

    * For a certain value of wise. His attempts at creating new elves turned into a race of underwater elves, that raid souls to to replenish the deteroriating ones of their slave caste and another elven race that wants to be the high elves of old but are a bunch of crystals-snuffing fascists.

    ** "killed" him. He's the god of death after all. But at least his grip on all things death is greatly weakend probably.

    If you're just interested in the character model she's sold separately as 'Lady Olynder,' and she's the leader of the ghosty faction for AoS.

    but where? where i throw money? is it only the GW store site or will other places sell them at a discount?

  • Halos Nach TariffHalos Nach Tariff Can you blame me? I'm too famous.Registered User regular
    Oh, well, I see, there's nothing exclusive to the GW webstore, and most independent retailers will sell GW kits at a discount (10-15% or so). I tend to use Element Games or Firestorm Games, but they're UK based and fairly local to me, I don't know what their overseas shipping is like, I'm sure there are US alternatives but I don't know them.

    That comes out of nowhere. Pleasant surprise though, the lord is risen.

    There's a head option with the mask off, and... he's looking far less mummified than I would expect.

    (Is that a AoS lore thing? Did Kroak get better?)

  • honoverehonovere Registered User regular
    Maybe they just did a good job at pickling him. Or now that death is in decline he feels a bit of a spring to his step.

    Nah, he’s still dead. He just hasn’t ever let that stop him existing his best existence. I think they just wanted to rethink the partial skeleton thing because why would the attendants of Lord Kroak, greatest of the Slann, He Who Once Met an Old One, let some insect or whatever actually dare to consume his sacred remains?

    For a fella who insists that he has claim to the souls of all living things when they die, people, other gods, and even entire cities sure do love finding ways to screw poor old Nagash out of souls. Between Shadespire, the Stormcast Eternals, Deepkin, and now the Katophrane Curse spreading he's gotta be seeing some serious declines in soul tithes.

    If that wasn't bad enough, he got beaten up by an elf. That's gotta bruise your ego a bit.

    I think they did a pretty good job with the floaty things on this model. It doesn't always work that well (yncarne of ynnead, hurakan spirit, that stormcast dude) but here it looks pretty good.

  • Halos Nach TariffHalos Nach Tariff Can you blame me? I'm too famous.Registered User regular
    It helps that it's physical stuff and not just vague swirly energy! I hope there's an unnamed regular Slaan build option in the kit too.

    Starting a new job next week. Thinking of getting in Sigmar but it's so hard to choose a faction. I love the look of the Deepkin, but I also like the realm lords and the fact they seem to be set up for future support from GWS. And now there are rumors of a destruction aelf (not wood elves) force that been sparked by god under the mountain trailer. Please tell me this game is cheaper then the old fantasy game.

    Dunno who 'that stormcast dude' is, but I like both of the other models you named. I have some nitpicks about hurakan, but I think it looks cool in spite of them.
    • I don't like the long metal bars attached to his waist (that the streamers are suspended from), I don't see why they couldn't get a similar visual effect while having the ribbons attached to his clothes/armor in a less awkward fashion. It falls under the 'okay, but how do they do anything besides strike that pose while wearing it' school of bad fantasy/superhero/sci-fi armor.
    • I think it'd look better if the angle of his aim wasn't so steep.

    They mean the Celestant Prime and his weird tornado thing. I actually think the Yncarne looks pretty cool, but the attempt to sculpt notoriously invisible wind on the Hurakan really breaks the sculpt for me, I'd prefer it they were supported by, like, windswept trees or something, using negative space to suggest the actual wind. Or even just on a flying stand with the streamers swirling about would probably do it.

    There are a lot of great factions in AoS, as ever with a hobby like this it's best to go with the models you think you'll enjoy building and painting most cos that's where most of your time goes! Lumineth seem a solid choice, though they're quite fiddly to play at a high level, kind of a high skill ceiling I guess. We probably won't be seeing huge amounts of new releases for then for a while now.

    Idoneth do look sweet, but their book is one of the oldest going now so they are probably due some attention from GW soon, at present their main competitive build is spamming lots of eels, which is strong but a little one-note.

    No one is really sure what the new Kragnos faction is going to be, or even if it's a whole new faction at all! So it could be weird destruction aelves, but I wouldn't hold that to be true just yet. It's worth noting that there's probably a new edition of the game incoming which might shake things up drastically.

    As for the price, well... It's still GW pricing, and the newer kits tend to be pretty expensive, particularly cavalry and large centerpieces, but you no longer need big blocks of 40 models in every unit just to play, and the game scales well to even very small points levels.

    If you go on the main GW website and go to the AoS section and filter it by "start here" there's several starter boxes that get you various amounts of models and all the rules you need to play.

    https://www.games-workshop.com/en-GB/Age-Of-Sigmar-Tempest-Of-Souls-2018-eng

    It's definitely more affordable that Fantasy used to be and GW now actually does deals that save you money as opposed to before where they seemed to actively hate their consumers.

    Also there is warcry if you want to start out with a few models but not a whole army. Besides having a bunch of Chaos focused dedicated warbands (that also have rules in Age of Sigmar) most main game factions now have rules to play them in warcry.

    Warcry is also really fun. Probably my favourite GW rulesystem alongside LOTR

    Warcry is great. Since you don't have saves and your model count is really low the game feels much faster paced compared to AOS proper. The games don't get bogged down by a million different spells or command abilities. The only downside is that the faction specific cards are long out of print, but you can find scans of them online and they're all included in the new Warcry Order books.

    Yeah, the cards are superseded by the new Warcry Grand Alliance books.

    Good for people that stick with one alliance, not so great for people that just want two factions that aren’t allies.

    Also, Warcry is an amazing source of narrative play with all the quests, artifacts, and levelling up that’s possible.

    Deepkin are due for a new codex, if that helps.

    Deepkin are still competitive. They aren’t top tier, but they’re definitely still decent

    That's all names of Endless Spells. I guess Seraphon get versions that they have more control over.
