    Time for a little update, what is planned unit-wise so far for the first version. Still have no names for most but there will be brief descriptions.

    Heroes
    The Manipulator- Specialises in buffing magic and stone summoning
    Master of Beasts- Summons beasts/buffs

    Battleline
    Humanoid scaleless lizards with long claws- Attacks with their long claws and they throw small rocks (Unit Min 10 Max 40)

    Other units
    Small larval creatures- Attacks in large numbers with their tiny claws and fangs (Battleline if Master of Beasts is general) (Unit Min 10 Max 40)
    Large hound-like creatures- They attack with their large forelimbs (Unit Min 3 Max 12)

    Monsters/Behemoths
    A large beast fuelled by the power of the stones- They attack with their multiple claws and vicious bite

    This is the lineup so far, at the moment it's just picking out statlines for them and picking a software to make it all fancy while I write. I do have BookWright, software used for making books.

    A more better sketch of the Master of Beasts. Feels like I should keep the details that bit simple. He has a stone imbedded into his head and hand, his staff also had a stone lodged into the skull's mouth

    It's mostly back and forth at the moment on what to do, have been putting down drafts for the warscrolls

    If you want to start drafting some sample unit Warscrolls for your Destruction army, I’ve found a great little Warscroll maker that I discovered while looking for an easy way to make Warscrolls for my unofficial AoS army, the Gloomforest Spawn - I’ve included a link to it on my thread for it. A tip I’ve found for using it is to use the ever-useful Snipping Tool to take a screenshot of your finished Warscroll rather than using their JPEG and PDF buttons as the forum doesn’t seem to display the JPEG Warscrolls properly and some people have had difficulty in accessing the PDF versions.

    Many thanks, I have encountered this before but had problems getting the files to export in the first place. Snipping seems a much better idea!

    Thanks! Need to carry on with this when I can!

    I did had plans on writing some fluff but I forgot what I was going to write at the time because the Beastmen leak distracted me before I even went to write

    Yep, still have some of it in my head. How these creatures do go out their way to find their precious stones. Also the Empire/Free People mentioning their behaviour and how one should keep their distance.
