    Wasn't sure where to post this but i was wondering if anyone else is struggling on the debate of repainting Gor-rok. I want to, but then hes just a Sunblood and not the bad ass he is lol.

    Why... Why the hell would you remake anything into Age of Sigmar? The game has literally been ruined by GW. What used to be a Strategy game is now a "take archers and win" game. Just play 8th ed. Dont change anything, keep Gor Rok as he is. He is just fine the way they made him for 8th two years ago.

    I do not think AoS is a so poor game, and I believe there's still a good amount of tactical thinking required to play it correctly.

    http://lustria-online.com/threads/seraphon-tactica-index.16590/

    Of course, you can break the rules and play as That Guy, if you want, but the game as is designed would immediately show you are the best person not to play with: you can win a match, but in the end the loser would be you. Would it be worth?

    Lastly, I believe people think simplicity means stupidity. And I don't think it is true.
    In Game Design the most difficult thing to do is to create a game that, with not too many rules, make possible a large variety of in-game situations and gives players the possibility to play in many different ways.
    This would be an ELEGANT game, as designers say.

    I think AoS is exactly this: it has 2 rules I don't like (measuring from models and not bases and shooting from/into combat), but the contents of the other 4 pages "rule book" have granted me more variety, versatility and fun than any other Warhammer edition in the past.

    Every race/faction SEEMS usable, and I myself have played against shooting armies (Wood Elfs, most of all), and I never thought the matches were unbalanced (I sometimes won even using a Saurus-only army)!

    I accept the fact you don't like AoS, of course, but usually people dislike it cause they don't realise (at first sight) the possible scenarios its rules make possible, simply because they are not listed in the game's manual.

    To put an end to this post, @Wazz , if you wanna re-paint your Gorrok <<JUST DO IT>>, as Shia said! XD
    You can simply put another name to it, and create a background able to show YOUR Sunblood is a lot more badass than Gorrok! ;)

    P.S. These are personal opinions: I don't wanna attack anybody, guys, of course! :D I simply don't like very much seeing a game (created by the work of lots of people, I guess) briefly liquidated in a couple of words! :)

    Repaint might be fun, get some new colours or make him match your army better! But then again maybe you want to keep him white, covered in blood! Still as bad ass, just with whatever name you wish to give him! Or get a second one and call one gor rok and the other rok gor!

    If you lost to just archers you're playing it wrong.

    Yeah i have to agree with Freddy and Bowser as well. The last match i played was against wood elves i used the Sunclaw battalion, we used the storm of Sigmar rules and had no terrain bc we wanted a fast match and i won against them. Its still about tactics just simplified.

    Ps also not trying to attack anyone just my personal opinion as well.

    Look at the sunblood I painted and tell me it was not worth repainting.

    Very good answer, my opinion is if you don't like something don't play it but don't slag it off when the discussion is not about how good or bad AOS is.

    I'm keeping my Gro-Rok painted as he is: Albino and dripping in blood! He looks really good with my Saurus Warriors that way.

    And @Wazz is talking about repainting a model which can be Gor-rok, Sunblood or anything you want him to be, the discussion is not about AOS but repainting a model.

    As much as I prefer the Gor-rok color scheme, that actually looks pretty good Crowsfoot. Like the purple on the head scales :)

    It is clearly stated that Gor-Rok is an Albino lizard, not a blue one. Therefore, repainted him blue defeats the possibility of him as being Gor-Rok.
