Figured I'd just make a general discussion thread for these two games, even though I don't think very many people here play them.

For Age of Sigmar (formerly known as Warhammer Fantasy) my main armies are Skaven, Orcs & Goblins, and Undead.
For Warhammer 40k, my main armies are Orkz, Necrons, Adeptus Mechanicus, and Tau.

Ranting about Age of Sigmar, still pissed that Tomb Kings didn't get rolled into the Undead faction especially since they are the smallest faction in Age of Sigmar.

Playing 8th edition of WH40k, the current edition (the rules and the lore) is definitely favoring the Imperium and Chaos factions and the War between the two factions. Although the Necrons have definitely been more involved with the lore (especially in the fight against Chaos, a bit like the Undead factions in Warhammer Fantasy).
Remember when the Tyranids were apparently the #1 threat to the galaxy....well Chaos has pretty much wiped out several Hive Fleets.

Primaris Marines have been largely meh. SM factions already have to deal with expensive units, so making these units more expensive means even fewer units.

Hope this thread isn't too old to reply to!

Your army choices for both games are superb!

I've only dipped my toe into Age of Sigmar, with a small Seraphon force. Not sure if I preferred when they just used to be Lizardmen from the jungle. Now they're ethereal space lizards!

I'm also building Space Wolves and Death Guard armies for 8th edition 40k. The new Death Guard models are pretty sweet

I have yet to play this, but people in the 40K groups go back and forth about it.
I would love to finish my Sisters army. We're never going to get plastic >.<

I haven't met any one in the city I live in who plays Warhammer (either one) and it makes me sad. I wanna build and play a Sylvaneth army in Age of Sigmar because they are everything to me.

I have a SM, a CSM and a cron army, but I don't really have many chances to play with people as it seems they find this stuff to complex and expensive to give it a try.

The Lizards survived the transition ok, but I still feel bad that alot of the armies in the Order got [email protected] over by the fantasy SM.
I used to have a vanilla SM army but I just found them boring to paint. But the Death Guard and Thousand Sons are definitely next once I finish my Adept-Mech army (and my plans for starting Dark Eldar just keep getting pushed back) .

I've been playing Infinity the Game for so long it was actually nice to play some 40k. And my Forgebane came in so I'll be painting that.
