We all know that the proper number of armies to have is however many you already have +1.

The new stormcast look pretty good. I saw a picture of them converted with normal looking human heads that looked pretty good. Like paladins or something.

Kurdoss Valentian, the Craven King, is one of the named champions who leads Nagash’s Nighthaunt legions. Serving at the side of his master, the Mortarch of Grief, this arch-plotter and schemer is an incredibly astute – if embittered and cruel – commander. He’s also not afraid to smash some Stormcast skulls with that mace…

More Nighthaunt stuff on it's way, alongside a pretty big 40k update for stuff.

Nice model. I like. Now for the question of price... I know what I value that model at, but what does GW value it at?

I myself really like the character himself, but I'd likely trim the two attendant wraiths and put them on separate bases.

At GW Australian prices, I don't think you'll be liking the price.

New edition starter box and supplements announced. It seems to be pretty much what I expected and wanted.

The Malign magic box is almost tempting, but I will wait and see what people have to say about it.

Agreed!👆 I don’t think I can pass on this one. I have no death army models or a huge incentive ( not that I don’t love the models as well as chaos). I might just put them aside for someone who wants to collect. The stormcast, rules etc is what I’m thinking of.

Maybe you can find someone to trade your Nighthaunt for Stormcast?

Sign. One more thing to add to the ever expanding want list. I'm still trying to save up for Forgebane and Silver Tower without totally killing my budget.

It's a good looking kit. That said, I think I like some of the other sets a bit more. If I can find someone to split it around here I might go in for the stormcast as well. The Nighthaunt look good, but it's not really an army I play. I might try and pick up some of the Nighthaunt heroes to paint up and collect, but the various troops don't super amaze me.

The wraith things look almost spot on to Witcher 3 wraiths, especially with the color choices.

I like these starter sets A LOT. AoS is really going places. I think I'll start a Seraphon army soon. :blush:

Oh look! New Sigmarines yet again! Variant #26 -This time with a bit of added cloth and slightly different weapons! Amazing! (Sarcasm)


I like the Ghosts. They have a classic-fantasy feel to them. I might have to get them at some point via ebay.

Also these miniatures are for sale seperately now:
(and considering it's GW, the price is actually reasonable)




These undead models are in my opinion thus far the only really good looking AoS miniatures.

Ah now we add a Noon Wraith eh. Feels more and more like the art design for the Nighthaunt stuff came after the design folks were playing plenty of Witcher 3.

I;m not saying they are bad, I quite like them. But the resemblance seems so spot on.

I don't know much Witcher myself, haven't played more then a few minutes, but your not the first person to say that. Normally I'd argue that a ghostie is a ghostie regardless of influence, except for the fact these generally do look pretty different from past GW ghosts. Not super different, but still not the same style.

Not super different, but still not the same style.

The core wraiths just have a few elements in their design that look like Witcher game ones and it is those and the paint scheme that really make it. This Mortarch of Grief though is quite clearly a Noonwraith, which though is a thing in eastern European folklore, I've not seen anywhere outside the Witcher setting. Where the folkloric one has varied tales about it the Witcher setting ones are the spirits of young women that are tragically killed or commit suicide over some loss. Also much is attached to these events involving a bride to be so they often appear to wear bridal regalia:veils, flowers, white gowns, and so forth.

GW has always been big on the homage game, though sometimes poorly where it bleeds into more the ripped off end. The line between these is basically dependent on the viewer of course. Fluff wise I'll probably dislike whatever GW dreams up for these Nighthaunt types, probably more to the setting and painful AoS naming conventions, but I really like the minis which I think it hard not to say there has to be a bit of a Witcher connection here.
