    Thanks for the information. I've gone ahead and ordered Drachenfels for £11, which was the cheapest that I could get it new. I do like the sound of a short extract that I read. It feels a little like an Advanced Heroquest adventure, so it should suit me.

    I found a copy of all four novels in one book on Amazon, but at £57 new it's too expensive, unfortunately. I can get a copy of Drachenfells new for around £10. There are lots of cheap used copies, but if there's one thing that I hate it is used books. How much of a role does Genevieve...

    Favourite/Worst Change from WHFB to AoS?

    On the issue of special rules, I find it much easier to have them all on the warscrolls. It makes them much quicker to find if I forget anything and after playing a number of games using the same scrolls, it becomes easy to remember what they all do. It's just a change for all those of us who...

    New wave of Made to Order models

    They can still be made to fit, but some elements of the models look very dated now. The skeleton horses, for example, are really awful compared to even later Warhammer versions of the skeleton steed, so in that sense some models can be very dated. Dragons and monsters have also improved...

    WHFB to AoS Timeline

    Thanks DoN :). I look forward to seeing this filled in more, as I missed eighth edition of Warhammer, so I don't really fully understand what happened during the End Times and how the realms of Age of Sigmar came about.

    Undead stronghold fluff

    Even though Vampire and Necromancers can raise the dead, there are still plenty of functions which living servants can perform. Servants can go into the world of the living to act as spies, messengers, or even trade. They can also maintain the grounds and take decisions in a more proactive way...

    Undead stronghold fluff

    If the vampire warlord in question were a Blood Dragon, you could probably add a substantial armoury to that list. In view of their honour, there would probably be an absence of thralls, but loyal soldiers instead.

    This is why I really want to read the book. I like complex vampire characters who are not just evil sadistic killers. I am interested in the idea of vampires actually helping out humans. There's no rule that says all vampires should want to destroy humanity and bring about the end of the...

    New Nighthaunts

    Borgnine: I see what you mean about it being less regal, and I think that you have a point. I do wonder though whether this was intended as I get the impression that Nighthaunt models are not meant to be overly ostentatious. I think that we're going to have to wait to see what the new...

    New Nighthaunts

    That is an excellent model for the Black Coach. It is clear that GW has shifted the concept away from a vampire in a coffin to a more ethereal and spectral one, so it is very different in that respect, yet the model echoes the original in many other ways. It is a vastly superior kit to the old...

    Since the original topic was last posted in eight years ago, I've split your post into a new topic. We do normally allow older topics to be revived when adding relevant information, such as this, but eight years is such a long time ago, a new thread seems more suitable, so please continue to...

    New Nighthaunts

    I agree. While I am very impressed by the increasing variety of spells and the models for the endless spells it is starting to feel rather excessive to have so many extra supplementary expansions being added to the game. Nevertheless, many of the models are really good and the aesthetic is...

    Alliance of Death Factions; How many are there?!

    That matters not to me, since I'm not in the least bit interested in that level of competitive gaming, so your advice is excellent for me. I think that you've just sorted my purchasing priorities for the year :).

    The Realms shake, and I have risen...

    Welcome back :). I am in a similar position to you, in that I played Vampire Counts right from their inception, having previously played Undead back in the days of the original Warhammer Armies: Undead. I missed seventh and eighth edition of Warhammer and didn't follow the End Times at all, so...
