If you needed this video to confirm female elves are incoming then you haven't been paying attention.

Jeah but I also have to agree that I very often see parallels between Aryans and Stormcast. Sigmar only selects the best and perfect as his Stormcast. He does not allow Corruption. There are many similarities between Stormcast and the NS Regime. Trust me, I am german. I know my stuff. :-P

So I would agree that Stormcast don't seem to be the overall good guys. 

On the other hand I have a question.  I know Chaos is always about corruption but are there examples of Chaos soldiers or monsters who show some empathy or dignity? I have never read into Chaos that much. But for me Chaos was always the incarnation of evil. On the other hand I don't know if they also live "normal lifes" or have families etc.? Most of the time I think about Chaos as humans twisted and corrupted to their core, so that there is no humanity left in them.

But is this correct? Or are there examples of Chaos soldiers who  are "nice guys" ?

Canto became Archaons chief enforcer after the fall of middenhiem in the last end times book, and he had a light side to him. Some who follow chaos do so out of survival as much as anything. The duplicity of man is a powerful factor.

Daemons of Slaanesh > Proceeds to list 3 Slaves to Darkness units 9_9

Although the Skaven Pestilens one is more amusing

Is it really that surprising? 

Basically you can gather from that page that they're basically listing plastic kits.  And possibly even plastic kits that you can actually purchase in GW stores (not web exclusive).  Was even going to suggest that maybe it's only round based stuff as well, but potentially the Moonclan Grots and Spider Riders go against this.

But overall, I think the theme is obviously - here's a bunch of plastic kits that loosely align to the faction that you're collecting that you could expand your army with.

At the end of the day, Daemons of Slaanesh and Slaves to Darkness isn't really that oddball. You can mark all that stuff Slaanesh after all.

 

Most likely they want people to diversify in what kits they want to get though, and not just paint the same stuff over and over. Like for Pestilens, I'm sure another Start Collecting set would likely be the better way to expand your army instead (Although the Corruptor is a fine choice as well).

The run and prey they don't take you alive seems awfully reminiscent of the old Dark Elf "Prey they don't take you alive" quote. So I'm guessing it's Morathi.

You think those are weird? Have a look at the death ones...

FEC --> neferata?
Skeletal horde --> soulblight units?
Malignants --> Arkhan?

That's really not what I had in mind when they mentioned the legion of Sacrament, blood and night so far...

I had a feeling that FEC’s would align with Neffy. Mannfred probably makes more sense but very interesting none the less.

I'm expecting us to get some sort of preorder announcement this Saturday. As we have nothing for 40k or AoS on the horizon. Then again that would allign a release for LVO where we know they will be announcing somthing huge!.

I'd not put money on that, most of the horde-esq units aren't on the list, including Bloodreavers (or Bloodreaders as I originally wrote, but they're something else entirely).

This weekend is the second lot of Maggotkin releases so we're unlikely to hear anything.  Week after is unknown (possibly heralds) and the week after GW are at LVO.  I think we could expect the Malign Portent book on pre-order then with Legion of Nagash landing the second week of February (in time for a White Dwarf feature).  You've also got a load of Necromunda stuff that I think will hit around the first weekend of February (when the Weekender is happening).

The part with the roundbases could be a point. In case of Slaanesh they could have used the Hellstriders of Slaanesh instead of Marauder Horsemen. The Hellstriders have two problems

  1. It would be another unit of Steeds of Slaanesh
  2. They should have squarebases

In case of the Moonclan Grots I know that they have roundbases. In case of the Spider Riders, I only know that the Alliance Box had Roundbases, don't know about the regular boxset.

Has the painting contest a worldwide fix time. I only know that I got a eventflyer for the shop I use and the first Step of the painting Contest ends on February, 10 2018. If this is a fix date it could be the date for the haralds.

I *think* it's the same time across the world, though guess we'd need one of our continental friends to confirm!  You're right though, it does mean the heralds need to be out on the 10th if not before - they might do it as a "bring your SC box in and pick up the next part"

Absolutely it’s a really interesting side to Chaos followers worth exploring, it’s somethng that comes up with the followers of Nurgle quite often. Bloodreavers also tend to follow Chaos simply to survive, the Call of Archaon series had an interesting scene about that. The Khorne lord in the same series follows Khorne out of necessity and and desire for vengeance rather than religious fervour or lust for power  

It’s  something that can be used to elevate Chaos characters in their use as protagonists

Agreed. The backstory to the Glotts for example is tragic, and you can really understand where their anger and despair comes from. 

Furthermore it really outlines how dark the ‘good’ guys really are @Ollie Grimwood

As a long-serving acolyte of the changer of ways I'm not liking how much these stories are making me warm to Horticulous and Mulch...
