    The Carrion Empire - new boxed set with FEC, including a new vampire

    Nice to see a new vampire of any kind! Will be interesting to see if they update flesheaters or not would open the door for the other 1st ed battletomes.

    Vampire Lords . . . What Happened?

    I’m in no way a power gamer, but I will admit there was something very satisfying about a fully tooled up Vampire Lord charging into combat in oldhammer. In Aos I try to keep them out of combat where possible as they tend to die too quickly.

    Vampire Lords . . . What Happened?

    Totally get where your coming from, it’s a massive fall from grace unless you field a vlozd or one of the named vampires. Nobody cares about being charged by a vampire and/or blood knights anymore which I would say have had an even worse age of Sigmar makeover than the vampire lord.

    Death to Dwarves (hopefully)

    Depends if you're playing end times or not. If yes, then I'd run two lords on barded nightmares in a unit of blood knights with flag of blood keep for a 4+ ward save, get them in on a flank charge and you can (with a bit of luck) cause absolute carnage. Don't have my army book to hand but i'll...

    Age of Sigmar - Recommended Reading?

    Eight Lamentations: Spear of Shadows is well worth a read; features Neferata and a new female vampire called Adhema. It has lots of references to various oldhammer characters too, which some didn't like but I didn't mind. Soul Wars is pretty good too although I'm only about half way through...

    Favourite/Worst Change from WHFB to AoS?

    Rules wise a big negative would be customization of characters, very specifically vampire lords. In 8th edition you could tool them up to be absoloute beasts in combat and pretty good casters too. I miss spending 400+ points on a vampire lord and charging him in with a unit of blood knights...

    Favourite/Worst Change from WHFB to AoS?

    Favourite lore change: GW not being afraid to move things on timeline wise; I know it could be argued this started with end times but it's nice I feel the setting can grow and different races wax and wane. Least favourite lore change: as others have said Archaon still bein around let alone grand...

    Josh Reynolds' ansvers regarding AoS

    I I totally get that, I'm just still hurting over the fact the last book in the blood of Nagash trilogy got cancelled. Was REALLY looking forward to that book!

    Josh Reynolds' ansvers regarding AoS

    "Blood Dragon for the mortal realms?!" Posed the question on the BL FB page for ask the author, didn't get an answer from Josh!

    New Nighthaunts

    So all nighthaunt warscrolls in Lon are being replaced by new ones. Apparently.

    New Nighthaunts

    It's quite a simple looking model, that seems easy to paint. Might even get away with just the nighthaunt flame over a white undercoat! Glad it's a New character really and not another one from the old world (bar one) though.

    New Nighthaunts

    Abhorash confirmed?! There was a very loose rumour of him on some sort of dragon during the end times. Just wishful thinking I know.

    Inferno short stories

    https://www.warhammer-community.com/2018/06/06/soul-wars-the-novel/ Near the bottom of the page, it mentions the return of inferno and interestingly josh Reynolds has written two warhammer chronicles pieces for it. One beig titled waking the dragon, I know this could be about anything but there...

    New Nighthaunt and Stormcast box set: Soul Wars

    This was supposedly meant to be the year of death; realistically we've had a battletome with no releases (I accept it was very much needed to make death worth playing) a campaign book for everyone with a death setting and now we are finally getting a proper new release with models and...

    New Nighthaunts

    Anyone else worried frightful touch isn't a thing for the new night haunts? I thought it may just have been removed from warscrolls and put in army wide rules but the ethereal rule is on each warscroll...

    Age of Sigmar New edition hopes

    Hated the fact summoning costed you reinforcement points, the more I hear the better version 2 aos seems. Although they'll probably bump all our big heroes up in points... EDIT: apparently kurnoth hunters and spirits of durthu are too many points as they are now?! Vlozd and morghasts getting...

    New Nighthaunts

    I'm just very happy GW have proven they can do it if they want too. Just need the Mortarch of Grief reveal now really! Which may well be a double kit, given most of the bigger models have been.

    New Nighthaunts

    I know I joked about ditching legions of nagash for nighthaunt earlier in this thread, but I'm torn having spent many years and a fair bit of money collecting vampire counts as a whole unified force. Now GW have rather effectively imo made an entire army out such a small sub faction, can you...

    New Nighthaunts

    Think I'll be ditching legions of Nagash!

    Age of Sigmar New edition hopes

    New nighthaunt stuff, black coach is looking good and there's some mystery character they didn't reveal.
