And so.... it begins.
Bird-horse is pretty rad tho. I think if I were to ever start AoS I would do sigmarines minus their helmets, putting my vast collection of bare space marine heads to use.

that said however.

His bird-horse has two tails, which is how you know he's the general.

And, due to popular demand, the newer Stormcast kits are including lots of bare heads:

One more quick thing for those of us poking around in this game: the AoS app is (surprisingly) really, really nice. You have to subscribe for full list-building abilities, but since it gives you access to all the unit stats and their points values for free (and list-building is so simple anyway) you don't really need it - I'm much too cheap to do so and haven't felt its absence. Also you can buy all the books through the app for much less than even the epub versions from the main store, if you're so inclined.

Again, as it's basically a one-stop compilation of the stuff they give you for free on the website, you don't get army-wide rules or spell lores (although they *do* give you the very basic army-wide rules for each of the 4 big allegiances - so I can't see the Stormcast Eternals traits and artifacts, but can see them for Order), but it's a really nice tool for poking around, looking at stats, and figuring out points values for armies - and, and I'm sure this is working exactly as intended, planning out future purchases. Frankly, it makes it feel sort of criminal that they don't have this much free support for 40K.

So if anyone is on the fence and/or wants an excuse to buy a box of sky dorfs and see how they play on the table but doesn't want to collect a full 1000-2000-point army, the January White Dwarf has revamped Skirmish rules and I've ordered a copy.

Fundamentally, though, you just pick 250 points of models from the Grand Alliance of your choice - you can get points values from the warscroll builder and stats either from the unit's store page (if it's for sale) or the warscroll compendium of your choice (if it's a legacy model), or all that information from the rather-nice app. Divide the cost of the unit by the number of models in it to get cost per model, add 5 points for champions and special weapons, and boom.

In general "Dave and Age of Sigmar" news, I finished painting my 1000 points of Stormcast, and Night / Forest Goblins (er, Gloomspite Gitz) just got a shiny new army book, so I'm raring to get some models on the table, not just for Skirmish but for full-on AoS as well.

I'd be interested. Technically, I even have a proper AoS army (the stinky half of that box set) and believe it or not I'm actually keen to use them. Just give me time to paint em all (which, being nurgle, is actually an achievable proposition. It's the one thing I can reliably paint fast.)
current (2019) hobby interests
minis
Nurgle daemons for AoS, Ghosties for Shadespire
Magic cards
tribal zombies, Standard, too much MtGA.
Hobby finances
minis: in the black
MtG: So, so red :(
