Inspired in part by @Lord Agragax of Lunaxoatl and by my own ideas that have been forming for a while, I have decided to share my own custom AoS faction that I have come up with! The idea stems from various different places. First of all, apart from the Daughters of Khaine (who are clearly designed for a different gender than that they depict), Age of Sigmar doesn’t really seem to have a proper all female faction. 40k now has the Sisters of Battle, and there are plenty of all male and mixed factions, but Age of Sigmar is still lacking a female faction that, y’know, actually wears clothes. If nothing else, it would probably fill a gap in the market for GW. Secondly, stemming more back from the days when the Seraphon were actually Daemons but still relevant now, was the fact that all the other ‘Daemon’ factions had mortal followers, but the Daemons of Order did not, and at the time were also looking for a buff to make them up to scratch again. Another factor was the fact that the whole tribal thing seemed largely unrepresented in AoS - Slaves to Darkness has a bit of it, but in more of a barbarian aesthetic rather than the hunter-gatherer stereotype. Finally, I thought it could give AoS its own interesting take on Amazons. So, inspired by some of the lore in the Seraphon Battletomes and the ideas above, we have the Adherents of Starlight (if someone comes up with a better name I am willing to change)! These are the various tribes of the Mortal Realms who, having seen the Seraphon in action fighting against their oppressors, have begun to worship them and fight battles in their name. They travel across the Realms, fighting Chaos and other malign forces and hoping to come across the subjects of their worship. While high priestesses lead them in worshiping the ‘star-beings’, others study the locations and actions the Seraphon have taken in order to best work out how best to aid them in their battles, and where they can find them next. Lead by skilled warriors, they then traverse the realms, launching lightning fast hit and run attacks on the enemies of Order. The majority of the tribes fight on foot, but those deemed worthy can often be seen riding the sacred beasts that are left by the mysterious star warriors. The Slann themselves for the most part are puzzled as to the strange tribes who keep leaving effigies in their likeness and joining them in battle, but more often than not their help is greatly appreciated, and many have even been known to intervene when a battle is unlikely to go in the way of the tribes or help is otherwise needed. Below I will attempt to work on a more expanded lore for the faction, as well as the various rules and Warscrolls that would come if they received a Battletome. In doing this, all and any help would be massively appreciated! However, there are a couple of things worth noting: I am a very inexperienced gamer, and as such my grasp on what would be overpowered/underpowered isn’t very good. My coming up with rules and things is also based more on what seems new, interesting and different, or what fits the lore, rather than what would fit into the actual gaming scene. The vast majority of you are in all likelihood far better at working out this stuff than me, so if anything seems silly or over/underpowered then don’t hesitate to let me know, likewise if you have any other ideas you like the sound of! Also, any suggestions for unit and ability names would be much appreciated! And now, I will share with you the various ideas for abilities, units and other parts of the faction I have had so far!
