        that's pretty much what he just said. Space marines sell so GW put space marines in their dead game as an attempt to revive it.

            The revival of WHFB is because of Total Warhammer, not anything to so with AoS.

      It's called "heroic proportion" in art. If the statue is taller than a man, giving it long legs and a small head makes it look even tallerer when viewed from below.

      They share a shitload of more than just the armour. SC is what would happen if you asked a chink mobilegame developer to make a fantasy version of Space Marines and do it fast.

    Dunno, the idea behind the Stormcast Eternals is simply too *cool*, there is no other way to go about it. Stupendously powerful near-demigod warriors that war against the enemies of man with the power of lightning and hammer, losing a piece of themselves each time they die and reincarnate until they become empty shells little different from the soulless armor they wear? Fucking sign me up! It's pretty much the same how Space Marines are cool, despite whatever bullshit flaws or inconsistencies they might have. The main issue that I have with them is the setting - compared to the Old World, AoS is simply put a steaming pile of crap. So I often wondered how one could include them in Warhammer Fantasy lore-wise, without ruining the original feel of WF. Toning them down a bit like pic related and adapting their aesthetic? It's not like they don't have somewhat similar counterparts in Chaos Warriors and Grail Knights that are already existing in the world. Maybe one could pull a "Guilliman returns" with Sigmar (the colloquial "return of the king"?) where he comes back for a short while to reinvigorate the Empire that's about to fall, beset on all sides by demons and monsters alike. Gifting them with warriors of legendary stature, fit to face the mad fury of the enemies of mankind. But this gift comes at a heavy cost - maybe he had to sacrifice himself to create them? Or this blessing is too much to bear except for a few elect chosen, killing thousands in the process? Or he brought them with him from the other side, heralding the dark coming of the ever so distant End Times that are now truly here...would be cool imo.

      I'm going to be honest I have never looked into AoS lore because I don't care about it but isn't this just undead from dark souls?

    Fantasy has very good cohesive theme and lore, but dog awful game rules, AoS doesn't even have a proper lore, but actually good and fun game rules (speaking about second and third edition)
    Stop being autistic manchildren
    I personally enjoy more AoS due to the rules, i haven't read a single line of lore regarding it since the whole portals connecting everywhere thing is retarded and i prefer to imagine it as just the "myths" people of the WHFB universe make up and imagine

    Yes, Stormcast are fucking lame. Yes, the dominion box is gathering dust everywhere. However, AoS has a lot of really cool minis and factions and the game is pretty fun too. Playing Stormcast is like eating white bread flavored ice cream though, it's about as boring as possible in a game with sky-mining Dwarves and eel riding elves and other crazy stuff. I just think that the dudes are neat and ToW is coming back so everyone can be happy.

        My LGS has a big fatty stack of them but you're better off just buying them pennies on the dollar from ebay or Amazon. If you need specific sprues from the box those are usually pretty cheap on ebay.

    AoS is second only to 40k in terms of popularity. Stay mad. The real draw are the large, extravagant and creative models. People like to buy them just to paint and display them even if they don’t actually play with them.

        >Where have I heard this before?

        Probably GW's internal strategy department, since that's clearly how they run things. It's obvious at every level that the tabletop war game is just an excuse to sell minis, not that the minis are a necessary tool to play the game. That's why it's so WYSIWYG. Compare BattleTech, for example, where having cool minis is a definite plus, but people don't care if you play with a different configuration of the same 'Mech, or even use cardboard counters (like the kind that ship with the intro box).

      Best models are the ones directly appealing to FB aesthetics though.
      Bring back Fantasy WITH new models, AoS will die like it should. The best leftovers of it can be ported back into FB or some side show new setting instead of cat piss aos blob.
