It's my first time looking at one of the SoB models in quite a while, and honestly I like him even less than my first impression.

The Kraken-eater is just the same basic naked giant with a bunch of annoying sea-crap all over him, and he's arguably the most creative of the three builds to start with.

I would love for SoB to be a great Destruction faction, but this emphasis on allies has given me serious doubt. My prediction is that the Mega-gargants will have decent warscrolls but their most powerful abilities will be locked behind 'named characters' that can be used as allies. The book will include battle and command traits and artefacts for SoB to be used as a standalone faction, but it's just gonna be a token gesture.

No, not programmable. 555 astable timer with a ripple counter and Ex-Or gate. The circuit accommodates RGB LED but sadly I could only run 3 wires (2 colours and the return) through the leg, the third colour is from mixing the two.

Well they have a role. They are fast as hell and can shoot after their 'ride the winds' ability. The mounts are fighty enough that, with your shooting, you can generally clear 5/10 scrub objective campers.

palladors are pure dumpster fire garbage, but then again so is 2/3s of the stormcast battletome anyways. if you like the models, get em and paint em up, and very likely the next stormcast battletome is going to be a complete rules overhaul because as it is the majority of their range is unusably bad.

aesthetically the paladins are probably some of their best models in my opinion, tied maybe with palladors. the paladors spears are a bit whimpy and flimsy looking but the mounts are so dynamic it makes up for it. paladins just fill that big brick house platemail look to a T and the helmets are different enough that they dont suffer from the O face that a lot of the 1st wave stormcast do.

LoN is still a solid mid table army. they can even still aproach top tables if you run them with nagash since his rework gave him machine gun spot removal which is the one thing LoN desperately needs. nagash+120 skeletons is a strong list.

if you dont want to run that, then the next strongest thing is probably VLOZD sacrement with mastery of death for fast skeletons. it just about doubles the base speed of things like skeletons and graveguard, and also applies to allied death if you are taking some bladegheist revenants or myrmourn banshees. it can also be fiercly anti-meta by taking the wristbands of black gold on the VLOZD. right now all the strongest meta contenders that LoN would have trouble with are shooting alpha armies, and the wristbands of black gold give your VLOZD a 4+ feel no pain in the shooting phase. combo with some bat swarm screens and you can actually endure the nastiest ranged alphas out there. hexwraiths are also cheaper then they used to be, meaning its easier than ever to slot in some tough, fast, flying cavalry for mobility and objective early objective play which are another of LoN's weaknesses

not as strong as OBR, but LoN is not as weak as the meme'sters on here would have you beleive. its solid mid tier to low high tier

I think it's a decent premise for Chaos/Destruction/Order undead. Nagash has said your bones are to be ground up into calcium resin so some necromantic potter can use it as construction material. And your soul is going to be blended together with a bunch of other guys' to create an optimized servant to perform a given task. If there's some part of your soul deemed unnecessary, they're gonna cut it off and toss it aside. And this is also gonna happen to everyone you know, living and dead.

if you want that clean, defenders of humanity aesthetic, theres a lot to like in cities of sigmar. you can even include some of your best stormcast units, while having a more rich roster to make a more balanced list. it can skew towards speed and shooting with cities like living cities and tempests eye, or skew towards casting with hallowhart, or aggressive cavalry charges with hammerhal and pheonicium.

if you want that low body count high impact feel, consider a cavalry focused deepkin, ironjawz, or ogor mawtribes

OBR also have a very similar feel to stormcast, they are basically stormcast but better on the tabletop. tough, elite shieldwalls supported by beefy champions and long range artillery in the back. they can also run 100% cavalry battleline that are fast has hell with stelliarch lords giving their army run and charge, like, the whole army just gets run and charge all the time, no CP or nothing.

>shield wall with two-handed swords
Why didn't they bring spears? Why do they even carry a short sword if they don't even use it together with the shield? What's the point of carrying a small sidearm for use with one hand if you still use your two-handed sword with one hand while you're gripping your shield? The larger sword is still too short to disrupt an enemy charge the way a spear might, even if it were just a javelin. Is the short sword there in case the long one breaks for some reason?

Bastard swords have a blade as long as a longsword, but a smaller handle, so you can use it both with one hand or with the second hand on the pommel (which is why bastard swordsare known as hand and a half swords), but the swords in that pic have a very long blade that's also retardedly wide and a handle as big as a greatsword's, which is just nonsensical.

>OBR also have a very similar feel to stormcast, they are basically stormcast but better on the tabletop.
I really like the look and style of OBR, but it's off-putting that so many people play them locally, they're the most popular army by far here. Ironjawz seem fun, but very one dimensional, more so than SCE. With Deepkin I'd be afraid the nerfhammer will hit eels hard and one would be left with too many of them for an army, although the tide rules seem like a lot of fun.

How do you deal with Saurus having so old and derpy models? I don't hate them, but they're pretty much the same size as Skaven and Dorfs. I like Skinks but I hate summoning, just painting and transporting units that aren't in my list immediately makes me dislike the faction. Fyreslayers look cool tho, can they be played without spamming the one OP Berzerker unit? Or is the rest complete garbage?

Spears are for peasants and scrubs, sword is the Heroes' weapon of choice. Smol sword is there for grappling (watch movie King from Netflix for a cool armoured duel scene) and as a backup weapon.

Anon swords aren't even battlefield main weapons, they are only for backup. You've watched too many films.

For fucks sake. Their gods are the two HE twin princes, they very much are supposed to be HE successors, but that doesn't justify trashing and ruining so many HE desings.

If the models didn't look that bad, it'd be fine. But I still think the cow motif doesn't really fit the stone golem theme. Just a treelord made of stone would have been a mullion times better.

If you don't like the whole army, don't work with them. It's pretty simple my dude. If you like their rules but not the models, use counts as and write your own lore for them.

Do you like the LRL lore? Is it just the models that are putting you off?

>> No.74794287


I'm more or less painting that scheme right now using the directions in the book and it's pretty sick, ngl.

Mostly the same, my version doesn't have the white gloves or shaft because fuck white, and I use a bit more gold than shown here.I might try doing white lances on the knights though.

Still would be interested in a video just to pick up any tips for making it faster though.

>> No.74794290

More like the opposite. Remove the nighthaunt allegiance and incorporate its artefacts and traits into legion of grief in an updated LoN battletome. There's still no reason for nighthaunt to be its own army.

Honestly StD is in a pretty shit situation. The kits you can buy separately are between 20 and 15 years old and as you said, they look much worse, but the ones in the SC box are monopose and can only be found there, so unless you want an army made out of the same 5 models duplicated over and over that still don't have full command squads, there's not much else you can do until GW stops being retarded and releases some multipart kits. But at this point, that might happen in a few months or a in a few years.

>> No.74794380

no, i disagree, i think if thats the direction they were going to take then OBR would have been like "legions of bone" and have been part of LoN or a tack on like legions of grief.

i think they are moving towards making the death armies more independant and less related to the LoN tome, so i think it will be battletome nighthaunt with nighthaunt allegiance, it will get rules comperable to endless legions and gravesites or possibly entirely new rules to help bring its power up, and it will move further away from LoN. LoN will then be reserved as essentially the "classic whfb death" army, and i could see them removing the nighthaunt units from its roster entirely.

i think one of the biggest failings of battletome nighthaunt was its reliance on magic while being terrible at it. if spells like spectral lure could be cast reliably, it might be a different game, but between little to no casting bonuses and a host of terrible units like glaivewraiths, they need an overhaul. i dont know if they anticipated the "super caster" trend thats taken over AoS, but its like now if you dont have a massive casting bonus or ways to auto cast you arent even in the casting game anymore. GSG has been hedged out of the magic game almost entirely now, where it was one of their few strengths at launch

>> No.74794387

Ok, so what models DO you like? Be open minded and creative; don't think inside the boxes GW builds. Stop seeing them as finished products and see bits.

There isn't a single unit in my CoS army that comes from just one kit:
>Nomad prince(ss) from Celestine, shadow warrior and sisters of the thorn bits
>Wild riders from wild riders, sequitors and Wildwood rangers
>Wildwood rangers from shadow warriors and Wildwood rangers
>Sisters of the watch from sisters of silence, the watch and the thorn

OBR are a very different thing, though. They are their own separate faction because they are an entire civilization of their own. They have civilians, their own culture and several legions of their own. Nighthaunt are just random ghosts summoned just like any other LoN undead. There's no difference between them and Olynder and normal skeletons and Neferata, for example. Because of that, thematically there's no reason why they should be its own book and gameplaywise, the Legion of Grief rules are both stronger and fit the themes of the ghosts a lot better, so no reason there either.

Agree the stoneguard helmets are trash. I like the cow theme so what I intend to do is use the cow part of the helmet like it's a mask under a hood. The stone mage is kino other than the head so I plan on sculpting a bowed and hooded head like a monk in meditation.

I love the rest. The Wardens, sentinels and Dawn Riders are what I have been waiting for since AoS dropped (amongst other things). I would have preferred the spirit of the mountain to be goat based rather than cow but I can understand the immovable grinding oxen motif they were going for so I'll take it.
