A big appeal of Warhammer is how mundane the day to day life of 90% of the world is it’s honestly easy to forget the lizardmen, the ape shit aspects of chaos, and even the elves exist when you look at the more mundane. I would suggest actually looking trough some of the 2nd edition RPG books a lot of them focus or discuss how average the majority of the world is.

Is there a good way to convert glade guard into waywatchers? The ebay prices are insane. There are some conversions with shadow warriors, but that'll mean more armor, which I don't think looks really better than keeping them more or less pure. I thought about the namarti reavers, but they don't have seperate upper and lower bodies, so that would mean a lot of cutting, excess and I could just go for the ebay prices. Maybe Namarti Reavers with a simple headswap could do the trick? Maybe someone has seen something exceptionally clever that I'm missing.

A longbeard dwarf-thing engineer and runelord was teaching a class on Morgrim, a known dwarf-thing.

"Before the lesson, you must get on your knees and worship Morgrim and accept that he was the most dwar engineer the world has ever known, even greater than Clan Skryre!"

At this moment, a brilliant, clever-cunning pro-Morskittar warlock-engineer who had built 1500 ratling guns and understood the necessity of war and fully supported all military decision made by the Council of 13 stood up and held up a chunk of warpstone.

"How aged-old is this warpstone, beard-thing?"

The arrogant engineer smirked quite Moulderishly and smugly replied "4.6 billion years, you stupid thaggoraki"

"False-false! It’s been 5,000 years since the Horned Rat created it. If it was 4.6 billion years old and Morgrim is real… then it should be a warplock jezzail now"

The dwarf-thing was visibly shaken, and dropped his chalk and copy of The Book of Grudges. He stormed out of the room chewing his beard. The same beard dwarfs grow for the "poor" (who today live in such luxury that most own armor) when they jealously try to claw justly earned warpstone from the deserving Skaven Underempire. There is no doubt that at this point our engineer Grim Grimsson, wished he had killed his fool-fool master and become more than a sophist beard-thing. He wished so much that he had a warpfire thrower to shoot himself from embarrassment, but he himself had petitioned against them!

The skaven all applauded and all submitted to Clan Skryre that day and accepted Morskittar as their lord and savior. A Doomwheel named "Small Government" crashed into the room and collapsed atop the Sign of the Horned Rat and filled the room with warpsteam. The prayer of the Horned One was chanted several times, and the Horned Rat himself showed up and exploded everyone present.

The engineer lost his beard and took the slayer oath the next day. He died of the Pestilens Red Pox and was tossed into the larders.

Do you mean this guy?
While I grant you that the head is fugly the rest is kinda neat imo. The earth elemental is a unique and quite fun take on a familiar if you ask me. The actual sorcerer (with the exception of the ridorkulous head) is stylish without being gaudy and the pose is nice and mellow, and more importantly not something often done.

I think the nose-and-chin armour is kind of a fun evolution of the Night Goblin aesthetic. I like those Labyrinth-esque squig knights for instance.

>>71409807
It's the armour. There's this plastic-moulded plate armour thing that is really common in MtG and D&D style fantasy art and generally doesn't occur in Warhammer.
High Elves, for example, have reasonably historical cuirasses and the helmets are a fairly standard corinthian shape apart from the tall crown. There's a minimum of moulding. If you look at the Dragon Princes, it's all gothic fluting.

This guy has these weird bands that would be very difficult to forge in metal without casting it.

>>71409784

I like the horns and the pose is ok. The base just has one too many things on it and the face is horrible. Again, the lack of tall helmet makes him look like a weird human rather than an elf.

I got into Warhammer with AoS, but I did try and get into warhammer fantasy but couldn't really get started, largely due to a shit GW manager.

>I was about 14/15, had played a bit of the LOTR game as a kid, but wanted to get into the 'proper' warhammer
>Looked up the armies online and decided I liked the Ogres
>Saved up enough to get the main book, the battalion box, and I think a hero as well (my cousin was really into it so he said that's pretty much all I needed to start)
>Go into the GW store ready to buy that
>The redshirt then convinces me instead to get Isle of Blood as it's better to start with (I don't remember how he convinced me but I guess I must have just assumed he knew better)
>Start putting them together and painting them but not really motivated

Is this a normal experience for GW that they arbritarily force starter boxes on people? Obviously this was years ago but I'm pretty sure all of what I wanted to get was as much if not slightly more than the IoB box so is pretty stupid from a self interest standpoint. Or did he just think he was doing me a favour? Ever since I got back into the game it's baffled me just what he was thinking ever since.

New Fantasy will be a reboot of Warmaster, in a smaller scale compared to AoS and large blocks of infantry, with a more strategic approach. GW lost that niche during their transition to AoS and this will be the attempt to reclaim it, piggybacking the success of Warhammer: Total War.

The problem is it's not the old setting, but the shitpile of End Times, and in turn directly linked to Age of Sigmar and forcing it to be canon. For the newfag anon, End Times was GW's disastrous effort to nuke the franchise after profits fell, and it had some really shitty rule supps and even shittier lore, including massive and incoherent retcons to the setting. It's the prequel to Sigmar, and TOW has already been said to be attached to ET canon.

I imagine they aren't relenting because they want to grab all the dudes who now know Warhammer from TW, and who don't have firsthand experience with just how mindbendingly awful ET was.

And how will that affect everything? One chief complaint about AoS is everything being split into its own army. This will just have a bajilion different factions running about. How will balance and basically logistics be? How many armies will be left in the dust next edition? GW does a poor job of keeping everything up to date.

Work in practice? As dumb as people are, buying shit even when gw decides to fuck them with less models at higher prices, you think that just works so easy? People can't just shit high quality campaign packs like a machinegun spews lead. What's to stop people from only going for stuff they want? I've heard people buying aos or 40k stuff for conversions.

Ideas that sell tend to be shit like easier entry for new players or gameplay big beneficial like other poster said about 7ed Daemons. Take 40k. Ork looted vehicles were a brilliant idea. IG or SM players can reuse models so lower entry cost in time and money. It covers up flaws in their own army by letting them use other armies' vehicles, a bit with Orkish shit accuracy. It was so popular that DoW had them. Its removal was so stupid I bet whoever decided that was on something illegal.

Dude yourself. Explain how you'd expand and grow Fantasy and develop it more. I satisfied every complaint you've been making with it.

Wouldn't sell as much. Just make more space marines. Sad but not every army has such a devoted fanbase that refurbishing them leads to huge sales. You'd get some new fans but so would pushing out more space marines. Space marines are everywhere in 40K so advertising is practically done. If people released tau auxiliaries, as much as id like some, i doubt tau would get as many new players as just releasing more space marines. Harsh but sticking with whats popular instead of new thing every second can make more cash. Just see all those Gw side games which don't get support anymore.

>Fantasy had way more issues than 40k, to be fair.
8e 40k only had soft-reset for their rules, fantasy had to reboot everything for several reasons.
40k was a mostly original IP, Fantasy wasn't and their biggest original race were skaven. AoS let them reset everything and focus on making more unique factions to a fantasy setting as opposed to lazy copy of irl settings that bloat up the setting yet go no where and no one wants to support. 40k still has developers who are passionate, old fantasy had their lead developer leave 2 edition before its death while being kept on life support by people who are not even familiar with the setting. The rules for the game did not help either, they just kept getting worse and worse.
The price of entry for fantasy spiraled out of control just for a basic army due to army costs per unit being comically low, and attempts to balance only kept making the system worse.

People were not buying models, and no new models were being produced, creating a vicious loop of no reason to support a system that had no fresh blood to keep hobby alive and no people buying into it. The playerbase was also all-time low, few angry grogs don't matter when they don't spend money and don't contribute anything beyond complaining about the game.
There was next to nothing to salvage of the old fantasy setting, it was a rotting corpse. Looking into the issues you'll find plenty more reasons why fantasy were killed, GW alone have many articles on it, this is just some reasons.

>> No.71429184

>>71429114
Easy. Focus on what's popular. Trying to make the less popular more popular has potential but there's many reasons why a developer would choose to capitalize on what's hot. In 40K, space marines are hot. Maybe too hot and soaking up all the attention but they definitely sell. Making more space marines is just satisfying a demand they know exists. Trying to make new demand can work but they can just as easily fail to create new demand that's anywhere as hot. Many reasons for sticking with the safe hotness than try to produce new hotness that might not be as hot.

It's a fact anon, large portion of fantasy carried baggage from older editions that was introduced but never expanded upon and had no one in GW willing to work to expand it. Nippon, Araby, Kislev, Cathay being some examples of relics of GW trying to chase trends that ended up doing either nothing, or little, positive for the setting with no developer wanting to work on them. Top of that GW have multiple articles lamenting about lack of creative freedom due to old fantasy being very safe and boring... fantasy without much in form of unique IP. It doesn't matter if you didn't find it safe and boring, keep in mind, but to GW design team who were in charge of working on fantasy.
And as I said earlier: there was no passion left. Last few editions, even if it had sold decently in some alternative timeline, just did not have the team to support it.

Personally I’m very turned off by primarines and stormcast but I can’t understand the constant whining. We live in the golden age of war games, GW is actually moving. Holy shit, they sat on their hands for years doing fuck all until now. Sure some of their moves might not be what you want, but it works. A friend of mine doesn’t touch warhammer and yet GW was the beat performing UK equity in his portfolio by a long shot.

It might change in future, things usually do. But right now from a performance perspective it’s hard to argue that GW are doing badly. Old GW was terribly managed no-one debates that, but the change has in many ways done it good.
Also this isn’t the 90’s. they are not the only show in town. There so many companies stealing the oldhammer aesthetic and doing it better. Almost every faction has a proxy often better than the originals. This is a golden age, I seriously don’t understand the whine.

In both cases, the actual skellies/zombies are generally garbage chaff and it's the rest of the army that differentiates.

I always try to take these things in a balanced way. The end of Warhammer broke my heart, but realistically I hadn't played in a long time anyway, partially because they weren't producing anything that really inspired me and partially because they priced themselves out of my reach.

The marketing names, the cheap, model-derivative art, the terrible writing and the Stormcast made me absolutely hate AoS and the Primaris and the whole new 40k background is terrible.
But equally, they have also produced a bunch of nice models. Skitarii and Genestealer Cults were something I always wanted to see in 40k and they're both perfect. The new squigs are great. I like the ghosts, especially the hoodening-style ones. The chaos sphinx thing is very imaginative, especially compared to something like the mutalith vortex beast.

I can't see myself becoming a regular customer again. It's just too expensive to justify much beyond a small warband these days. But they have made some good changes and they're obviously doing well out of it. So there's that.

Where as Vampire Counts get 0 ranged, the Barrow list gets javelin throwing skeletons, they have a barrow guard that's kinda a mix of the tomb and grave guard, they get siege equipment as well as chariots(Lord/hero option only), but still get that sweet Necromancy summons.

All skeletons is viable in AoS, fantasy less so
I did see this once somewhere and thought it was interesting enough to put in a text doc

Skeleton Warriors have an ability which gives them 1 extra attack when at 20 or more models or 2 extra attacks when at 30 or more models. That puts each skeleton at 3 attacks. If the Wight King is your general, his command ability allows you to give a DEATHRATTLE unit an additional attack. In Grand Host of Nagash, he can take an additional command trait that does the same thing. The command trait plus command ability plus extra attacks skeletons get for having a big unit equals 5 attacks per skeleton. In a unit of 40, that's 200 attacks! But that's not all, the necromancer can cast his Vanhel's Danse Macabre on that unit of skeletons to allow them to pile in and attack twice in the same turn. Now, you've got 400 attacks from one single unit in one turn. That's hilarious.

Just how much of everything bad in the setting is malekith responsible for? Because if you go by Gortex and Felix the collapse of the dwarven holds is also in part his fault

Just think, some random elven autist and his mother did more to doom the world than any champion of chaos by orders of magnitude

Morathi is the one to blame. You could potentially trace all the evil back to her and her scheming. She even ruined Malekith.
