Ninth Realm Episode 44: What army do you choose?

Ninth Realm Episode 44

What army do you choose?

New Releases:  None to speak of Kharadron Overlords are all out.  AoS Skirmish Mentioned on twitch, each faction is included, played on 4×4.  In the ruins of Shadespire, sound a lot like Mordheim.  Rather than crowns you use renowned.

    Great episode guys! I agree that asking playstyle is important, especially if you’re talking about a person who focuses a lot on the gameplay.

      I like Warmaster Fritz’s YouTube channel once a year or so he goes over picking an army and it’s all about matching what’s going to make you happy. When New-Hammer rolls out, that philosophy will work better on 40k than it does now.

    Well, for me the choice was kind of made easy. I have been building up some Tzeentch Daemons for 40k for about 5 months or so and decided to seriously take a look into AoS and of course it was all compatible. Being a fan of magic and spells in games in general, the Disciples of Tzeentch book looked really awesome so I decided to give it a shot. Haven’t been disappointed. AoS is an amazing game.

      Tzeentch daemons are strong also so it’s a good crossover army. Between the spells, the shooting, and those destiny dice. Having avoided 40k for a while I’m not sure how they play there. How ever I’m so psyched for New-Hammer.

    Except AoS Skirmish is not Mordheim. They did not take the Mordheim rules and adapt them to the AoS setting like they did with Necromunda to Shadow War: Armageddon. This is essentially AoS Kill-Team. It sounds like they borrowed a few Mordheim elements perhaps for the campaign, and from Path to Glory, but for the most part this is essentially just a supplement. Not saying it’s bad, just trying to clarify things before you get your hopes dashed expecting Mordheim 2.0.

      It is not Mordheim 2, but you roll for advances, get swag, and you build your group up. Maybe a split between kill team and Mordheim. That game was a blast. You had to reset after 10 or so runs but still fun.
