@Cupropituvanso Which Army are you talking about That doesn’t have spells linked? If it had spells previously, the old Arcane Bolt and Mystic Shield were updated in the gst and nothing was removed (that I’m aware of) from a linked spell.

Any thoughts on #585? GHB says min10/max30 ... 140/500 for Skaven Stormvermin.

@WindstormSCR we had a guy at the store just put a single Shaman on the back and put the rest of the grots on the base

lol
I got it, finally
now I'm just debating, do I glue grots to the howdah and prime/paint it as a unit, or prime gros separate so I can drybrush the howdah
leaning towards just gluing them

@alphalas thanks. Apparently Azyr does it the same way ... it just automatically charges the 500’@ 30 Models
@WindstormSCR magnetize the Howdah So you can run the spider without the Shaman and grots ...
And paint it up separately.

So ... prime together... drybrush the howdah and then paint the grots?

Yeah ... pretty sweet. I have like 10 of the spiderfang grots from back when they were in the battle for skull Pass ... I’m just hoping they do something with the Spiderling Grots from the Silver Tower ... they were an amusing diversion.

@acebaur I don't run them in less than 10; they're durable but with the changes to Mystic Shield (it just does what their shields already do) they're not quite as sticky. A magic lantern still helps, though, but you can't double up any more. Also, if you check out the new command abilities the Hammers of Sigmar one lets you bring back a full unit of Redeemers (which Liberators are) on a 5+, so more smaller squads would maximise the use of that.
@OftKilted Nice work handling #585 btw. Some people have a) a massive sense of entitlement, and b) no idea how to communicate with other people. I sometimes wonder if the internet was actually worth it...

@WindstormSCR The Spider kit from Skull Pass had monopose grots with no weapon options, and custom bases. They were easy-build kits with single piece riders that had a push for assembly to attach to the spiders.

the spiders and bases are the same, grots are still one part aside from the command sprue
there's even the troll 40mm base still on the base sprue lol
