AoS 2 - Hedonites of Slaanesh Discussion


Recommended Posts

Wow. Hopefully we'll be getting another decent caster with the Voice of Slaanesh too! I'm a little shocked we're getting more new models so fast, but who's complaining?

Remember that they also have Rend -1 and do mortal wounds on 6s to-wound in addition to normal damage.  The initial reaction here and elsewhere (moreso elsewhere) isn't surprising to me in the sl

I shared my Hedonites in the painting thread but I saw people were sharing them here too, so I hope it's okay for me to give you all some photos of the things i've painted since March. I think th

I AM!!!

 

But only cause I was going to "finish" my slaanesh army this year and GW keeps releasing more awesome and insane models that I have to buy to add to my army to make it even more awesome :P

In truth though those are awesome models the pair of them and its great that, even with a recent Tome, Slaanesh is getting a little something from them (even if its a pair of big somethings). I do also wonder if it means GW might sneak a plastic Herald in - someone to call the way for these two new leaders of Slaanesh.

We for sure need a new Herald model. I can't even get a hold of the old one -- I'll probably have to make a footslogger one from the Start Collecting box.

I'm not complaining, this is a fantastic pair, but I did not expect new models so quickly!

@AronQ_ the newborn is an early arrival, it seems.

Awesome models! But sadly for me that Talon of Slaanesh has femine name, it will be more cool if it has more male name. Who can calm down me and say that Dexcessa is not just femine character please XD

Depending on culture, not all names ending with -a are feminine...

Anyway, these new models came completely out of the left field for me. A pleasant suprise!

And yes - a new plastic (and, hopefully, alluring) Herald, please!

Plus, messing with gender stereotypes and androgynous body types is a Slaanesh thing. 

I mean it could be nice dualism... brother and sister, but no, there two sisters( I will think that Dexcessa is brotherXD)

Anyway...cool models!

This does mean that, at least in some ways, we'll be getting a segment in Broken Realms. Whether that means 'just' some warscrolls or an entirely new section of rules remains to be seen...

Very frustrated. On one hand, this model is awesome. On the other, to release it when we so recently received the battletome...I don't want to encourage behavior like this. We need to move away from releases like this and what LRL have experienced.

I love the model; I am sure it will be a powerhouse built to sell. But a single model release doesn't fix our current issues within the battletome, and will not earn us any favors when we drop our third new toy in 2 years onto the table across friends playing Cities, Fyreslayers, or Flesheaters.

I mean... they're daemons of slaanesh. They don't have a biological sex because they don't have reproductive organs lol they are both whatever gender you want them to be both in and out of lore lol.

The reveal article uses "they" to describe, uh, them, so it's safe to say they're non-gender-specific. If this wasn't obvious already from their androgynous forms.

Ye I know about androgynous forms, thanks!

I guess we were right in speculating that the release schedule seemed smushed together. Surely explain why there has been such rapid fire releases... Also, my jaw dropped when seeing this. Hope it leads to new exciting hosts and fun stuff for us to represent the return of the newborn twins.

Someone suggested they could make KoS battleline, which would be ridiculous but also quite funny :P

So if Kragnos is next months book then we'd have made it what? 3 months? before getting a supplement. It's probably due too their release schedule getting wrecked by covid but it still leaves a sour taste. The models themselves look fantastic, I didn't think you could out keeper a keeper but here we are. I just hope these greater-greater daemons are better than the keeper. I don't expect these two to be cheap in money or points so i'm worried the voice might end up seriously stepping on glutos' toes. The talon has no real competition for combat monster (because the keeper is neutered,  shelaxi sucks and sigvald has the reliability of a condom in a teenagers wallet) so i just want them to be a shredder who won't have to worry about getting wrecked by a stiff breeze.

Hopefully the points are balanced appropriately this time.... 

I’m most excited for the potential of new subfactions or rules to build armies around. 

 

I want to stay optimistic, but I think we're just going to get these two new warscrolls and that's it.  I highly doubt Slaanesh will be getting a lot of new stuff in Kragnos.

What are people reckoning for the new rules?

The melee-centric one is probably going to have rules that make it a blender, and may or may not buff Hedonites in combat.
 

The spell-casting one is going to be more similar to a support specialist, with spells and command abilities that benefit Hedonites, and also debuff or damage enemy units. It might have more powerful casting then Glutos, but the trade off would be that Glutos is more akin to an “all-rounder” that provides debuffs, bravery immunity, melee damage, and spell casting; the Newborn is probably going to lean heavily into spells and not into melee.

I am loving the androgyny of these two. Really psyched for the Kragnos book, hopefully Kroak becomes a more reasonable scroll, and I'm interested to see what factions Kragnos himself is involved in.

Don't forget, technically our battletome came out last year, it got delayed due to covid, I highly suspect we're getting warscrolls rewrites for Kragnos. Let us all pray for the Slaangors, they might become good!

On the gender of the twins? In my mind it doesn't matter, despite Slaanesh being gendered as a he, it's been a thing where Slaanesh appears as the thing the person wants most, so if you really only care about hamburgers, Slaanesh would be a hamburger, literally, if you are into dudes, Slaanesh would appear to you as a dude, if you are into women? Well, slaanesh would be a woman. In the story where the silver knight encountered slaanesh he appeared as an innocent young boy. 

In the case of Synessa, the avatar would do whatever it takes to corrupt you, so whatever you call the creature won't matter to it in the slightest and I doubt their other half would care either since Dexcessa seems to only care about slaughter, murder and domineering over others. So in my mind it's pointless to try put Slaanesh daemons into a box, for example the Herald in broken realms is they, while Syll is she when referred to in her story.
