elves are tall, lean, mysterious, athletic, agile, lightning fast. Bulls and Yaks are not these things. Dragons, hawks, phoenixes, forest lions are though.

yes there is and it's because it's confusing from a design cue / symbology perspective in two different ways:

>cows are already symbolically associated with four chaos factions (beasts of chaos, khorne (esp. juggernauts), slaanesh, legions of azgorh), so associating them with an order faction, especially one based around themes of light and purity is retarded

>cows as an animal are totally un-aelf like. aelves are graceful, beautiful, arrogant, enlightened. aelves militarily are precise, orderly/harmonious and strategic. bovine are almost the exact opposite, being cumbersome and lumbering, and too simple minded to be arrogant, intelligent or enlightened. in terms of how they fend off predators they use brute force and stampede in an uncoordinated and unintelligent manner.

in short, aelves and bovine are almost exact opposites thematically.

>> No.72702076

Not him, but my personal complaints:
Stratagem/CP balance: Many armies that need CP to be used effectively can’t accumulate it while shit like Guard can spam cheap Battalion detachments and drown in it. Stratagems themselves have removed fun and powerful upgrade options from units.
Psychic powers: Psyker phase is boring and spells are either buffs, debuffs, or a marginally better/considerably worse smite. AoS has this problem, too. I personally wish damaging spells had shooting weapon profiles, but the cast roll is the hit roll.
Army power creep: Compare something like Orks or Daemons to Marines, Guard, and Knights.
Soup reliance: Too many armies use soup to pick and choose the most powerful options of their codices of choice with minimal/no penalty.
Poor balancing: If an army doesn’t get any updates in a supplement book, the only balancing that take place is points adjustments, which fails to address why that unit sucks in the first place.

>> No.72702081

You can certainly forgo ardboys, but they give you more bang for your buck than brutes, which can be underwhelming. Ardboys give you lots of bodies, are great objective campers and pretty immovable anvils for your punchier things. But not necessary. Gore grunts lists are great. If you stick with an infantry focus consider at least one large blob of 15-20 brutes

>> No.72702129

To me, it just isn't fun. Every unit plays the same, every army plays the same, detachment spam CP farm is lame, taking random rules from AoS with no thought to how they might actually be utilized, and replacing USRs that almost never changed to a deck of strategems that changes every 3 months.

7th was a solid(if complex) ruleset that was marred by a bunch of fucked codices. The shit balance in 7th came from the codices, not the actual core rules.

7th wasn't perfect, and needed streamlining badly, but 8th is too much. It's lost too much of the complexity it used to have, and replaced it with gamey mechanics. Those mechanics might appeal to somebody that plays Legue of Legends or something, but not to me so much.

Also, having to buy a new book for your faction every 3 months is getting old fast.

Dunno I'd imagine that Camo Skinks would be better in blocks of 5-10. You'll get the cover bonus a lot easier since depending on your terrain getting 20 models in cover could be difficult. In addition since they'll probably be sneaking around I don't really know if you'd even be in range of any heroes for buffs and the Sotek command ability. Sure 20 of them can easily snipe a useful hero to death, but unless you're in cover they'll likely all die the next turn, and 20 of them are 360 points.
I suppose that using them as backline ranged support like a regular ranged unit would solve this, but at that point I think a block of 40 regular Skinks would do more damage if fully buffed.

>> No.72702855

it takes no effort to write a single bit of a line on paper

it takes a lot more effort to have long established ranges that incorporate a bull theme

you wouldn't even know of the sigmar bull thing but for reading an obscure book outside the purview of the normal game , whereas you can know the visual association between the ranges i mentioned just by looking at them

you conveniently ignored this bit because you're just trolling at this point

His literal argument began with its retarded and impossible for a bovine to be associated with anything not chaos and wondering why GW did it. As if there isn’t countless cultures irl that associate Bovines with sacred deity and protector guardians. GW is literally taking that aspect of bovines and applying it here. His argument is one dimensional autistically devoted to literally only physical appearances and devoid of any form of ration analysis to support his feels. I don’t even care that he doesn’t like it that’s one hundred percent fine but his arguments is as irrational and explosive as his feelings

Absolutely yes. They are a big train of fat and muscle. And they play like that.
>any glaring internal balance issues (great/shit units)?
Gluttons have the most focus in the Gutbuster (walking Ogre) half of the tome. I don't think there are units that are particularly shit except maybe things like Gorgers and Yeti. Man-eaters don't really have a role but they are serviceable.
>I like the idea of an army that's a small count of big monster lads crackin' skulls but how functional are they in practice
Very. They are easy to play and easy to have good results with. They also have a few lists that can place well at tournaments.

>> No.72703299

Sick. I like the gimmick of the hungry/eating buffs, and how different command traits interact with that, and they seem like they have some cool unit gimmicks and decently fun monsters, so I was hoping they weren't crap.

I haven't responded to any of this before, but if a symbol is used by another thing, does that it can't be used again in another way? So for example, Tzeentch is associated with birds, does that mean that no one else can have birds? Or Khorne is the blood god, does that mean that other factions can't have anything to do with blood?

Ogres are really good in the fact that while there are some clear winners in the tome even the less powerful units can still be perfectly useful. Like, for example, leadbelchers and ironblasters are clearly inferior to big blocks of Gluttons, but you are not handicapping yourself if you want to play a few of them, and even a list focused on those with the gunpowder tribe can still be pretty fun to play and have good results even if you won't reach first place in a tournament.

I want to say no, but the great filter is real, though it's not the players in a general sense as much as the obsessed fags that get attached to an often superficial and erroneous understanding of the setting with what can only be described as religious devotion
these are predominantly secondaries, because hobbyists in general are used to change, but not always, there are also those that autistically use the lore as a form of identity or escapism, of all the fucking things they could choose from, and end up taking change as a personal attack.

GW can't legally reduce price on products because of the investors. It's the reason they do a lot of shit that result in prices being brought down in practice whitout actually reducing it. Like with start collecting or with the Stormcast boxes going from 5 for 40€ to 10 for 50€.

Fair enough. I was just throwing that out there since you seemed to like the oldschool elements. The hardstone is a really nice sculpt and kit though. I'll need to either kitbash or convert one to use as a Fane of Slaanesh since I can't use the actual stone with my slaangors.

>> No.72707688

i think they have several sculptors on hand who's quality is highly variable. some kits are great, some are aweful, some are inbetween. their newer stuff is getting better though, like that whole northmen arctic warrior release. i mean look at their newer chaos dwarf infantry box vs their older ones and its night and day

like any company, they are getting better at what they do over time as they are both able to recruit better artists and as the artists they already had improve over time.

also, with the advent of zbrush becoming much more user friendly (tools like zremesher, dynamesh, sculptris pro mode, etc) and ultra cheap 3d printers (i got mine for 300 usd, prints at such a resolution that you cant see layers when painted with no post processing), sculptors can now bang out a mini in record time and print a prototype right then and there to look at, and the program getting easier to use means more people are using it so theres a larger talent pool to draw from

another thing thats coming about is miniature collections and armies that dont have a distributor. you buy the files for a squad or model and print them your self. a lot of them are super high quality too

I ended up with a baggie full of GW zombie bits because my Dad bought them in early 2000 for a conversion he never got around to (was going to combine them with some Free Company Militia to make zombie pirates).
The zombies obviously look like shit so I'm not quite sure what to do with them. I'm thinking maybe I'll turn them into some heaps of gore, pile some onto a long table for a royal feast as terrain for my Flesh-Eater Courts.

If 3rd party didn't exist i would straight up just not buy any warhammer, same applies if they all stop doing 20% off. I can handle the cost at 3rd party prices since it seems still somewhat reasonable ... kinda, but at actual gw prices they can get fukt.

>> No.72709042

if you want magic heavy i'd say your best bets are hallowheart, tzeentch, gloomspite gitz, bonereapers or legions of nagash

hallowheart runs a council of wizards, giving all the little 90 pt wizards a second cast and a command trait for a wizard with a lot of wounds to bleed himself to give all your other wizards a massive casting buff. you can run it fairly elite if you then take things like pheonix guard or demigryph knights, or you can run it more numerous with lots of freeguild guard and handgunners.

tzeentch packs a load of mortal wound slinging demons and mortal wizards along with some of the nastiest shooting in the game in the form of flamers and exalted flamers. they can be run as horde with pink horrors, or elite with lots of birdmen on disks and such

gloomspite can run tons of cheap casters, they have a very strong character caster with skragrott, some of the games best endless spells, and a host of fun behemoths and cavalry, but usually work best as horde

bonereapers/legions of nagash have nagash and arkhan, and are some of the premier casters in the game. legion of sacrement is still probably the 2nd or 3rd best at casting, and nagash can just outright solo enemies with his spells. bone reapers are a more elite combined arms warmachine, while legions functions more like a horde army with endless waves of dudes.

as for sylvaneth, they can be ok at casting, definitely arent a horde army, but their main strength is deployment. they can teleport mid game with the trees and can outlfank with half their units, and waypipers can all teleport, which allows you to reposition your army in ways most other armies cant even dream of. combine that with some powerful behemoth heroes and the nasty kurnoth hunters and they can do work

>> No.72709115

Wait for Lumineth? They look like they can work pretty elite with 5 guys for 100 points and a bunch of pricy heroes. Teclis is a magic boy and the army seems to focus on that.
Tzeentch? Lots of shooting and offensive magic, battleline units as wizards.But splitting pink horrors are probably too hordy for you.
Nagash or Arkhan in LoN or OBR are some of the best casters out there, but the armies tend to be hordy and the magic is more of the support and buffs variety.
Sylvaneth suck dick imho.
