In any case, I don't think it will cause it to go down. Maybe a modest rise or more if it proves a big success.

I think it'll depend on whether TOW ends up being kind of a side project like AT or BB, or ends up getting the same level of effort as AOS/40k.

/aosg/ is the worst reoccurring thread on /tg/ ever, I’m including the nicedaemonette and erp quest threads in that, and I actually enjoy AoS. Map posting, ben and ben posting, the fucking shit fights every thread, the autist who screetched about “mixed gender units” every thread for months, avatar fags, tharja poster, the constant fucking fetish posts, the constant tow and tww bait threads, I’m just scratching the fucking surface here. Rotbark and actuallyautistic dwarfanon, and a few talented painters, are the only good things ever in that thread.

That it is, though I'm pretty sure the second pic is of the same thing. Must have been an official model.

Before you get too excited, I want to share a picture from a non-Warhammer dwarf comic of a dwarf farm. All wood, still looks recognizably dwarfy, and you could include some stone posts and stuff to make it look a little more dwarfy.

>> No.72315721

Wait, are those both the same model? The rocks and the foliage on them are identical. As are the bricks.
Lighting may account for the major differences, but the wood on the first one is greenish, while the second is brown.

Unless the whole thing is a cast or something and those are two different paint jobs of the same model.

I don’t make the generals anymore nor do I go on there after the purge. (Also doesn’t help I quit playing AoS.)
All the negatives you’re bringing up were just part of the banter culture along with spergs who took joking too seriously.
Rotbark, Dwarfanon, the artfag (RIP), etc. we’re all great- Everything went down hill though when /aosg/ started attracting peeps from other parts of the Internet and the eventual doxxing of his holiness Ben.
At that point I just clocked out and left. /aosg/ has stabilized since then, and still has issues with the fetish post and meme meisters (all part of a healthy and popular General), but us on the other hand? /wfg/ is slowly dying.

>little to no actual hobbyist

/wfg/ sucks compared to a year ago.
Yet we’re still here. (I don’t even know why anymore.)
Funny how /aosg/ started off as the containment thread- But here we are, officially a containment thread, oh how the tables have turned.

That's kinda the point. Malus is very typical of his culture. He's meant to give you a typical view of it. Malus ends up being likable because he's fleshed out, but also IMO because he eats shit so often. And even Malus has SOME virtues, whether it be his courage in battle, natural leadership, fondness for patting Spite, or being the excuse for Hauclir to be in a scene.

What are the fluff numbers of combatants in historical battles in the Warhammer universe? I know that WHFB numbers are way off from what you'd expect from our universe (where 16th century battles had like 15 thousand infantry for each side), but does the lore treat the battles like they are done in in WHFB (as in, a few hundred combatants) or are there descriptions of battles of thousands of men?

WHFB either represents skirmishes and small-scale combat or it's an abstraction of a larger battle.

The fictional battles are at least as large or larger than historical ones. How this squares with lower population density is handwavey.

Depends on the edition.
In later releases pretty much everything boils down to, “Retrieving some artifact of great importance!”, “Retaliation!”, “To fight our enemies (chaos/vampire-counts)!
Older editions with less of a concrete setting are where the creative juices are.

>> No.72320137

it's typical number bloat found in fiction that serves no purpose whatsoever than to break your immersion
I think calling WHFBs an "abstraction" of large battles is the correct answer for large battles. Of course a skirmish can be true to size anywhere from 500 to 5000 pts.

>> No.72320139

even with those stirlanders I'd say it's the pivot point, as the engagement is still probably much bigger, even if only by a few hundred more men that are on the tabletop, and they're fighting just on the outside of the table edges, and where you are is the important part that decides it.
But I see what you're saying, and that's also valid.

>Are there ones that work for drawing skills as well?

If you find some, let me know as well.

The point I was trying to make in general was "Everyone can improve at [thing], but not everyone can become a master at [thing]", which I maintain is true.

As for the Olympia example: everyone can put on a lot of muscle especially with drugs, but winning Olympia is not just down to muscle mass. Things like:

Not everyone is capable of driving their bodyfat down low enough to win.

If your skeleton is just not built right (for example, being very narrowly built), it's incredibly unlikely you'll be able to win. You can't increase shoulder width for example indefinitely just by adding muscle, and you can't stretch out your skeleton.

Related to the last one: proportions. You can't perfectly control how much muscle you'll carry in each part of your body. If it's out of whack badly enough, you won't win. Greg Kovacs was the biggest bodybuilder in history (absolute freak among freaks), and yet he never really won anything major despite trying.

Muscle belly length is huge. This is something you quite literally cannot change. If you have short muscle bellies on your pecs for example, you'll never have the Arnold style paving slab pecs.

Certain body parts can be incredibly resistant to growth. Look at Stan Efferdings calves for example, and that is a pro bodybuilder who was/is on copious amounts of dat dere celltech.

Another could be posing.

So no, you can't just take every roid on the planet and win Olympia.

>> No.72321094

>you can't stretch out your skeleton

>> No.72321122

And actuall, I'll add to this clarifying my earlier statement: You can take all the drugs in the world and train and eat perfectly, and there's still a good chance you won't end up anywhere near as muscular as a top tier bodybuilder.

Drugs don't just override your genetics entirely. Think about it:

Great genetics + drugs + other stuff = top bodybuilder

average/crap genetics + drugs + other stuff = dude who is big by local gym standards.

>> No.72321147

That's why I said 'mostly'. There's also a creative aspect, which is linked to intelligence. Although I'd make a distinction between 'art', which is creative and 'illustration', which is based on observation and coordination, albeit with a lot of overlap.

I think Kopinski is closer to the illustration side, but his real strong point is being able to build up good mental models of musculature and lighting.
John Blanche on the other hand is almost 100% 'art', although he can do illustration when he puts his mind to it (see his Sister of Battle), mostly he doesn't bother.

>> No.72321159

all of that is flowery bullshit used to justify who judges decided to win. do you also think the Oscars are a contest of objective skill? short, tall, white, white-disadvantaged, mass monsters, etc all win. at the very least you have to admit its completely subjective and standards change dramatically over time, but really like i said already, a winner is chosen and then fluff is thown together to justify it.

I think it's less the fact that it's ranged and more that archery isn't bloody and destructive enough.
The Khorne-aligned troops in Slaves to Darkness included chaos dwarf mortars and bazukas, which are presumably loud and murderous enough to qualify for Khorne's devotion.

Khorne epitomizes a warrior's honor and shooting is not honorable.
