Still working on the base, gotta do a couple more layers of the Nurgle’s Rot to make the pools look pool-y. Got a little Nurgling to paint red and dip a head into one of them too.
Bloodreaver color scheme is great. Loving the “Christmas colors” as my friend jokingly called them. Still need to do highlights/edges.
Quote on the French Warhammer Forum about the Battletome: Stormcast Extremis:
Next WD for your viewing pleasure:
Battletome Stormcast Eternals EXTREMIS (Because they’re more extreme than poor regular Stormcast peasants? It’s the 90s all over again!) 21€ / £15 / $25 / AU$ 99.999
88 pages, 2 battleplans, 4 battalions, 7 warscrolls ( so 2 more units than what is already in the WD, they refer to something called a Star Drake so your guess is as good as mine regarding what it will be)
– Dracothian Guards (2 mounted Stormcasts like the one in the AoS box) 55€ / £40 / $65 / AU$ your mortgage
– Knight-Heraldor (1 model) 19.5€ / £15 / $25 / AU$ a trained battle kangaroo
Yup, it’s just an alternate model of the previous Heraldor. Rejoice trumpet lovers for that one has no chance of sticking his instrument in his eye!
– Tempest Lords upgrades pack 9€ / £7 / $12 / AU$ your firstborn
– Starter paint sets 28€ / £20 / $33 / AU$ your soul
3 Marines or 3 Stormcasts, with 8 mini pots and a brush. Very very costly for the content so not really designed as an entry tool for kids, it’s more for parents looking for a present I suppose.
– Super Glue €7.5 / £5.25 / $8.75 / AU$ 15 (hey, it’s actually the real price!)
A box of 5×0.5g of glue, for a mighty total of 2.5g… … … I… I… I do not… wut?
WD starts with a photo that I assume is supposed to wake up all those who still believe for some reason that AoS is a skirmish game. Now go buy 12 more Varanguards and 24 Dracothian Guards while you’re at it *WHIPLASH*!
5 warscrolls inside the WD, actually one for the Lord Celestant on Dracoth and 4 for the Dracothian Guards that are actually just the 4 weapons options. Fulminators (glaives), Tempestors (not-bolters crossbow), Concussors (hammers) and Desolators (axes, which actually increase their number of attacks the more they are in the unit, 3 for 2, 4 for 4 and 6 for 6… now go buy more!)
Next week hints is something something Dracothion and Warriors of the Extremis Chambers.
I’ve personally never liked Genestealers, I thought they were always goofy, their lore weird and not really straightforward, but the concept was interesting. I’m a HUGE Deathwatch fan though thanks to the tabletop RPG by Fantasy Flight.
These models are easily changing my mind though, looks like GW is cleaning their look and backstory up quite a bit for this board game and I am totally on board (no pun intended.)
