I expect to see a lot of black legion stuff for 40k including abaddon and the new campaign book. For AOS we will probably get either slaves to Darkness or Slaanesh and the next warhammer underworlds warband.

My dream announcement would be a new ko battletome with a new battleline option, a new ship and a new hero.

I would love to hear what you guys expect to be announced or what you at least would wish to hear of :)

A few snippets that tease towards an large slaanesh release in the next month n half.

If whatever they release next is half as good as the gloomspite stuff then I’ll be very happy (dificult as gloomspite had the special neiche of being an old favourite/my 12 year old self wishlisting come true/new toys. ) I imagine darkoath is still some time away as the goblins were only like a month ago. I don’t think I’ll be able to resist a black legion release if abaddon is done, and done well.

Possibly news of whatever this year' Malign Sorcery type thing will be.

Something to do with the final Nightvault warbands.

And I'd love news of a AoS campaign book, something's brewing in Chamon and I think we might get something along those lines.

Then probably lots of Black Legion shenanigans for 40K and maybe some Sisters reveals.

Morning folks!

Thought this was the best place to post this up.  I've been away at the HH Weekender this weekend and although not an AoS event, am able to provide a bit of feedback on a few FW things.

First off, the way Forge World provides items for AoS and 40k has been changed.  There is no longer a dedicated team of people creating content for the two game systems.  Instead the rules elements now is being handled by the appropriate design studio.  This is a fairly recent change from the seem of it (within the last month or so).  What does this mean for us?  Nobody yet knows, we never saw what the old team were capable of as it only existed for a few months.  However, the change should help to ensure that future warscrolls have more consistency, but could equally change what we see being produced and may mean some of the interesting items (like multi faction keywords) may never come to fruition.

Secondly, we've seen our first "Ruinstorm Daemon" as an exclusive base for Sanguinius and it looks amazing.  To surmise, Ruinstorm Daemons are basically "generic daemons", they don't fit into the chaos alignment as we understand it.  Why am I telling you this?  Because the new daemons are going to be rife to be integrated into our existing Chaos (or similar ;)) armies as champions and heroes!

Lastly Warhammer Fest is happening at the Richo again on the 11th & 12th of May.  Speaking to the gent organising it (and the Weekender), its having "revolutionary" changes - what they are is anybodies guess, however with 8 Games Days under his belt and seeing how well the majority of the Weekender went I'm really looking forward to it.  I just need to work out what GD entries to do ;)

As a StD player, I'd love the idea of getting our own kind of daemons we can summon and the desing of the one in Sanguinius' base is fantatic. I really hope GW makes at least a couple of units for them.

For AoS, I expect the next dual box, with the next two battletomes. I will guesstimate Ironjaws vs Flying Dwarves.
The models for the last two Underworld warbands.
Teaser for Darkoath is possible but I expect it will happen a little later, like mid-spring for a release in July.
Maybe, just maybe, general Endless Spells box 2.
And I have a sliver of hope that we might get new models/resculpts for Skaven and FEC for a second week of release. Since we don't have the Battletomes yet, it's still possible!

For 40k,  Black Legion, Chaos Space Marines, and totally the new expansion for Blackstone Fortress.

I'd be a lot more excited about these things if GW stopped cutting pages from their translated books. I want to read the story of the campaign books and cutting a 100 pages doesn't make it easy.

I don't know if it's true, but I've heard that FW now will be making only HH and Specialist games. No new things for 40k or AoS. Is that true @RuneBrush?

Not sure if it’s been answered or not, but forge world won’t be doing rules for 8th Ed 40k (and presumable AoS). They still do models, but the GW rules teams handle the rules. From what I’ve heard from the Heresy weekender, anyway.

Darn it GW if you're going to tease us with warpfire throwers in the article art we want warpfire throwers! ;)

Skaven are sounding good,  a few general rules that have been on warscrolls for ages are now army wide - likely not a huge change, but does make it a little cleaner. Many of the abilities and names sound well suited and its great that they are getting two spell lores - one for pestilence and one for warp engineers! 

 

All in all sounds good!

Oh good those ability’s look so fantastic.

I just love the idea how our hero’s even get a look out sir in combat😂

look that's quite enough of that with your gnawing through reality and popping up everywhere as you likee chatter.

I think you're being unreasonable, you should be positioning yourself to maximise your opponents arc of fire so you can be killed in an efficient manner not cobbling together more  gubbins and contraptions to make killing you harder.

Rats... very unreasonable,

I will inform the disposessed of Karak-Kaboom to have a word...

Interesting to note that most of those bits of army display show a lot of older models in them - this suggests that GW might not be taking any away (or at least very few). Warlord in metal is gone (understandable as there's a finecast and plastic version as well). 

 

Also comments on the facebook page note that Pestilens Skaven still retain the Nurgle Key word.

I would be quite happy to see The Kharadron Underworlds warband

I have heard that sylvaneth definitely getting new scenery and three new endless spells with their battletome. Source is not saying anything about kharadron overlords which makes me suspicious it might be something good.

I was hoping in a plastic rebox for rat Ogres, skyre acolytes and weapon teams but from pictures they are showing they negate it

I hope at least on plastic models box for weapon team that are unvaible right now

KO could do with a larger overhaul than most factions, they need more infantry choices and battleline in general. There ships could use some retooling as well so I wouldn't be surprised if we had to wait longer for a larger update for them.

The Dream

New boxed game ala carrion empire. 

Blood in the Water

Deepkin v DoK

New heroes 

Ishrann Embailor 100 points

Command ability: in the hero phase pick one unit of akhelian allopexes or akhelian leviadon wholly within 12" of this model. That unit can immediately pile in and attack with its jaws and fins. 

Spell - dominate beast. Casting value 7 pick one enemy monster wholly within 12". That unit fights after all other units in the combat phase. 

Only one weapon the pain staff

1 attack 3+ 3+ - d3

Against monsters has a rend of - 2 and d6 damage.  Makes allopex battleline as general. 

Melusai Bloodhunteress 140 points

Command Ability: in your movement phase pick one unit of Melusai wholly within 9" of this model and remove both them and this unit from play. At the start of the next movement phase (friend or foe) place both units wholly within 6' of a table edge and at least 9' from the enemy. 

First of the Scathborn: get the mortal wound on ranged attacks from bloodstalkers and the stare  mortals from the melee snakes for this hero. 

Trueborn of Morathi: unmodified hits of 6 for bloodstalkers wholly within 12' of this unit inflict 2 mortal wounds instead of 1. Melee snakes wholly within 12" do d3 mortals on 6s for their stares. 

3 attacks 24 range 3+ 3+ - 1 dmg does 2 mortals on hit of 6.

1 attack melee 4+ is a mortal 6 is d3. 

 

You get some snakes and sharks plus some other bits. 

That's my weirdly specific wish for LVO.

So i saw no weapons teams in the pics that were uploaded, that could mean something good, or it could just be they dont want to show any of the old metal models, we shall see

I'm still banking on slaanesh being in soul wars so i'd have to agree with sylvaneth vs fyreslayers or maybe something with darkoath vs somebody since that will probably just be a big Slaves/everchosen overhaul similarly to carrion empire

Well I don’t really think they’ll be gone for good.

or at least they would have hopfully taken a different picture at the beginning of the article, if that were the case.
