AoS Warscroll Review: Beastmen Warherd Units

AoS Warscroll Review: Beastmen Warherd Units





These units are more difficult to use in the game as a lot of the abilities either work after an attack has been made or you need to roll 6's. But I have found a way of using them, it does mean you need lots of Ungors to back them up and divert. I'll explain.

First look of Archaon Everchosen "Miniature"

First look of Archaon Everchosen "Miniature"

Now, this is loosely described as a miniature. This is no miniature, this is huge! An absolute monster! Now apart from Beastmen, Chaos has never really done anything for me. I love the concept and the range is Ok, but it has never grabbed me. Then Archaon dropped.

The detail on this model is incredible. I had a chance to see it up close and just the detail on the wings is impressive. It is larger than Nagash and dwarfs the Glotkin and Prime. 

Would I spend £100 on it? No, would I get it for £75 from an independent?.. maybe..

Would it then make me start a Chaos army? Probably.

Now the paint job on the website is not great and frankly it scared me thinking of painting it which put me off the model. But after seeing the Painting Guide from Duncan and how he showed how easy it is to paint and look amazing. I am so tempted.

So the question is do I or don't I?

I never buy models because of their rules, I paint and play for Hobby, not competitively (my first army was Beastmen after all), but after seeing the war scroll I am even more tempted. I love the idea of theming an army to follow a head..

Which brings me onto one reason I wouldn't get it, but also a reason I may get it and convert it. Slaanesh... where is Slaanesh?

Surely this is the definitive sign Slaanesh is no more. Which is upsetting as I believe he/she will be missed. But there maybe scope for a cheeky conversion using the keeper of secrets.. decisions..

Below is the link to the Warhammer TV painting guide if you haven't seen it. Let me know what you would do. To buy or not to buy.

This is a new series of Blog posts I will be doing which will go into details of war scrolls, stats, synergies and experience I have had playing with or against. Hopefully it will help me find more depth in the units as well as tactics that can be employed with them.
