So, I got the Storm of Magic book yesterday and as anyone who’s read my posts in the various threads about it will know already, I really like the possibilities raised by the Scrolls of Binding. The idea of monsters that can be added to armies in a modular fashion is a really fun one, and SoM contains loads of great monsters and units…but there could be more!
What I plan to do is make some new Scrolls of Binding as pdfs, in roughly the same format of those shown in the SoM book, for all the monsters that were left out. Should be fun.
Anyway, here are a few of my ideas so far:
Swarms (snakes, spiders, frogs, bats, Spites, Snotlings and Nurglings)
Anyone else have any random ideas? I can’t promise I’ll do any of them (hell, I can’t promise I’ll do any of this…) but I’m open to suggestions. Limitations are that it must be something that has some precedent in Warhammer already (so no random mythological creatures) and it can’t just be some monster from an existing Armies book.
Technically, there’s probably no reason RoR couldn’t work - I intend to give Halflings options for command, for example. I’ll give it some thought.
I’ll certainly be doing a Daemonic Engine one anyway, based on the rules from my book. The way you can upgrade monsters is actually very, very close to how Daemonic Upgrades work anyway, so it should fit in perfectly.
I really want to avoid anything that’s explicitly tied to a particular army though. The idea with most of the things in the book is that they’re things that could be found in the wild and bound by a wizard. Skaven stuff isn’t likely to be wandering around above ground unless some Skaven drag it out with them.
