Godslayer

Post by MrDwhitey » Sun Nov 24, 2013 5:09 pm

Just wondering, has anyone else heard/played this? It seems to be a skirmish game set in sort of roman times in a fantasy universe. Costs are on the high side, pretty much Warmachine metals in price. I saw the miniatures painted up and liked what I saw at Firestorm. It seems that you can customise your warlords/warband leaders by buying them items, which is nice.

It has as far as a rube such as myself can tell, six factions.

Mortans: Romans with an interest in necromancy
Banebrood: Beastmen/Satyrs
Halodynes: Greeks and ogres
Nordgaard: Nordic Dwarves
Troglodytes: Cave dwelling monsters and what look like wights and shades
Wyldfolk of Annyr: Tree hugging hippies

Quickstart Rules:

Just noticed they let you download the full rulebook and unit statistics cards.

In person the models were quite nice. Some seem a little rough, but they'll do just fine.

I was thinking of picking up a starter set for this, either Troglodytes or Mortans.

Well, I was in Firestorm today and had a terrible accident.

I tripped, fell, and my wallet somehow flew into the till and before I knew it I had purchased a bunch of Mortans. Rob of course refused to let me give them back and I was forced to keep them. :?

So, you have Trog's and Mortan's - and I know Richard was talking about this.

If people are interested, which factions would they be looking at - I 'might' go toward Banebrood, as David already has Trog's - those lovely figures he has on the painting thread. And liking the faction within a faction option (Reaver's over Beastbrood I think)
Dragon/Lion Rampant // Warpath // Godslayer // Wolsung .

There's some good info on the Godslayer website and some games on Youtube (not brilliantly presented but you can get the gist of the game). I was initially attracted to Troglodytes - don't tell the wife! - but as David has already invested I'm now looking at Nordgaard. I also like the variety withing factions Kev.

Ordered the rulebook, and picked up a few (well 2) figures - BaneBrood Reaver Tyrant and a Mortan Hero. Gods, the figures are fiddly, the Tyrant has separate arms (without pins, just flat surfaces) and the chain on the axe is separate :? . Not sure my modelling skills (or superglue) are up to this - using Blutac/Green Stuff at joints to get a good seal/fix.

Lovely, detailed figures though.

Saw this a while back too...the minis are lovely!

I've been watching the videos and it seems it borrows quite a bit from warmachine..which is nice as I like the Warmachine system but not too fond of the models!

Those dwarves look very tempting!

Hmmm...salute on saturday...better update my shopping list :lol:

Downloaded and read through the free quick start rules this afternoon and really like what I read. Definitely looking forward to playing this now... :D
