Interesting, can't tell what section of a Stormcast that is. 

Seriously though, would not be surprised for this to be a very very little piece. I'm hoping Sea based Aelfs, maybe a pet or base/shipdetail. Or maybe even some Goblin sky pirates, and this could be a squid grenade. Myabe we'll find this side of 2018?

On twitch today Phil Kelly  said new factions super soon, keep an eye on MalignPortents.com.

Could be a reference to the new death changes, but it sounds like new models.

My local GW store manager said he 'saw an incredible new Black Coach'. I asked where and he said .. not on something public.

YEAH !

I saw (on DakkaDakka ?) that PK said on WHTV that there would be new typical-AOS factions (like Kharadron Overlords I guess...) soon. 

So a Death Release may be ... Not so typical, unlike Cthullu Shadow Aleves ?

I don't know and I want both :P

EDIT : I just saw on the MP thread that PK said "no comment" about Aelves, and the the Realms of Light and Shadows will not play a big part in MP, unlike Vandus.

I would love a new Black Coach. I currently have a Nighthaunt army but not Black Coach, not because of the unit's rules, but because I can't make myself pay actual money for that awful model. I've got my Nighthaunt army halted at 1600 with 400 points of Soulblight allies making up the rest because I've got plenty of hexwraiths and I never want to see an unassembled Spirithost again, but I've got plenty of room for the Knight of Shrouds and a Black Coach with a better model.

I actually have a Black Coach ready to get converted. I doubt we'll see a new version of it specifically. GW doesn't seem to be in the mood for redesigning existing models, generally speaking.

 

I guess the Nurgle release sorta disproves that. But then again, the black coach is a nobody model, plague marines are a much bigger deal. The Black Coach he heard about is much more likely to be a completely new model in the vein of a coach.

Overlords is a really good and interesting book.  Learning so much about the KO Code, nice development by Clint in that book.

How plausible is the rumour about a big Aelf release in may/june? I assume that around april/may the second new army for AoS will be released? This month Maggotkin of Nurgle and than around 3 months later the second AoS army for this year.

Also according this rumoured release schedule no  Shadespire warband 7 and 8 (SC/Khorne) before june. That seems a bit strange.

This leak seems to come from various rumors, and to be mainly 40k-oriented.

It seems to come from this poster who was quite right back in November about Daemons and Adeptus Custodes, so you could say it's reliable.

Some new Gutterrunner and nightrunner models and a Eshin battletome! Thats the way to go! :D Chances are very low unfortunately.

The two schedules only goes to June, so... Also, per the existing fluff, at least Clans Eshin are involved in the Fate of Slaanesh (which could see releases, like a Slaanesh Battletome at the end of 2018-2019). Also Eshin alreadyhave an official AOS miniature now (from WHQ) ;)

@HorticulusTGA

So you think it's plausible that we will see two Aelves faction released side by side? It does sound nice Aelves on ?waterhorses? and an expansion on the Witch Aelves theme.

Well hopefully it's Darkoath, Death, two Aelves factions, Stormcast, Slaanesh, Light Aelves and skaven for 2018!

As before the Warhammer Quest box basically covered two types of Aelven subjactes too.

I think your line up is almost correct, you can remove Darkoaths from that line up though and Skaven, other than Shadespire stuff, sorry.

Not really strange. Have talked about GW managers and they view it as a side game, that vision comes from higher ups. The Bloodbowls, Warhammer Quests and Shadespires arn't designed to thake potential 40k and AoS players away from their main games :)

I really don't know, I'd say (given the last MP video and other clues already discussed above), we'll have : 

- February : MP book, 4 Harbingers, some new (old) sceneries, Legions Of Nagash (if it's Neferata in the video, then we could see Soulblight too).

 -March : following of MP. 

- April-may : Aleves. I find it REALLY strange to have two different factions but why not (that would be two Shadow aelf factions, so we would still need something else for Light Aelves, Tyrion and Teclis). 

- June to November : unknown. 

- November - December- January (2019) : Slaanesh 40k and AOS.

Around that, mayyyybe Darkoath and Moonclan, and more probably new Stormcasts (I hope with proper Sceneries like Stormkeep).

I don't necessarily think the Nurgle release disproves that they don't like remaking existing models.

It's just I think they definitely carefully choose when they want to remake stuff. It hasn't really come up so far in Age of Sigmar, because you know, most of the factions have been new (Stormcast, Fyreslayers, Overlords, Ironjawz) or expanding factions that already have a lot of plastic (Khorne, Tzeentch, Sylvaneth, Maggotkin).

Overall though, I think the Nurgle Daemons stuff were pretty obvious to do. Greater Unclean one was a pretty old model now and super unimpressive for what should be a centrepiece of the army. Beasts of Nurgle were the only finecast unit left on the Daemon side (Other than Epidemus who is a special character). So both made pretty good sense to get done in plastic.

I assume Slaanesh will have a similar upgrade as well if they ever get redone, new Greater Daemon and Fiends as they're the only real finecast units left other than special characters for the Daemons.

 

So yeah, I don't think they'll be redoing every kit from the 6th edition era. Most of those kits belong to the factions that are unlikely to see an update anyway.

stealth update for forgeworld

Eguo remains unchanged.

fairly confident this issue of it " being a named character " is resolved now with the maggotkin book not stating it as one either.

What's actually changed in those pdfs? At a glance I can't really tell.

I'm not quite understanding of how the 2 new Aelf factions would have anything to do with the Realm of Shadows or Light.

From the rumours I got the impression the aelves reside in the realm of death. 

When they get to Malekith and Tyrion I would expect realms of shadow and light aelves

Because the aelves live in the realms of light and shadows and have since the death of the old worlds? I'm not super up on my lore but I'm pretty sure we haven't had much in the way of aelf sightings outside of warhammer quest.

Soulblight Allegiance is being included in the LoN book (along with GA: Death). The only reason I can think of the allegiance being in this book so soon after GHB (especially with Nighthaunt and FEC not being included), is that is has received some sort of change.

I do recall that GA:O had the "Exiled" factions be groups that hailed from both Shyish and Ulgu. I COULD be wrong, though.


EDIT: the darkling covens are made from sorceress queens and their coteries that hail both from Shyish and Ulgu, indeed.
