I've been working on a spreadsheet for warscrolls, what kit makes them, and the material/age of the kit to try and figure out what armies need updating the most and heres a rough overview of what ive

Am I the only one mad the OBR are getting regular archers? GW had the opportunity to create a unit called Crossbonemen and they didn't take it.

hey don’t be sorry, it’s always helpful when people reveal exactly what kind of person they really are.

...Huh. What's up with those Lumineth poses? For me it's the single ugliest underworlds warband yet.

One with the hammer is not bad, but he's basically indistinguishable from regular stoneguard, archer would be in the same situation but his pose is completely unflattering for his robe and highlights the asymmetry of the bow in the wrong way (is he playing it like a harp?).

Sword lady with her straight up sword/banner/hair lines and derpy face is downright hilarious and the mage, while interesting, clearly isn't improved by his king fu pose. I don't remember when was the last time when I disliked the new release so much...

The slaaneshi are great, though. If Slaanesh mortals ever come out and look like this, it will be one of the best chaos lines.

I think they are setting themselves up for it - Warband and the new mortal leader certainly suggests that Mortals are very much in development. The real question is if they release them in one bulk release or they could tease them out one or two new units at a time now and then. 

wouldn't be slaaneshi if there wasn't any teasing 😉

So Adam basically confirmed Catacombs for tomorrows Preview?

Pretty much!! 

Ouch my wallet, new warcry box, bloodbowl, broken realms, blood and shadow and Underworlds! 

Just need to set up a direct debt to GW!

I feel fairly indifferent to the majority of news this go around. None of it was bad news just simply no updates that spoke to my interests in the game. Only one system that I play is getting anything at all and it is just a complied resource for rules. I am happy for the fans of the games that did get news and I think there were some really neat models.

Blood Bowl: Awesome models and as someone with no interest in American Football this game is slowly wearing down my mettle.

Warcry: I am glad that they are moving away from cards into books and I will probably pick up the Chaos book but this was a sadly underwhelming reveal. 

Underworlds: I love that Slaangor, everything else is pretty cool but pretty much non-existent in my mind. I really want the god specific gors to all get updates now. Beyond that I do not play underworlds nor the two factions in the set and even if my opponents do, I will probably not see these models getting play except as proxies.

Animation/Media: I am a massive animation fan and it was a major part of my university studies. However, I am just not overly invested into the grimdark setting of 40k. I will check them out due to my love of animation and its relationship to my hobby but I would be more excited for an AOS or Old World series... maybe blood bowl. But truth be told I have always had a strange relationship to the lore where I enjoy learning it and using it as a source of inspiration, but I prefer to develop my armies to have their own lore which is often not immediately tied to the greater narratives of GW's licences.

Kill team: Despite not loving 40k I really enjoy watching Kill Team batreps. So this is pleasant news although more things that I am not personally invested in.

Pretty disappointing preview. Stuff we've already seen and no hint of new models for warcry or underworlds.

Had the bloodbowl not been leaked early it would have been more impressive. 

It's pretty much the rest of the year mapped out and if they do a preview on warhammer day we'll see what's in store for AoS in the new year.

Pretty much what @Neverchosen and @Ogregut said. If we didn’t know BB was coming soon it would have been another thing (independently if you play that game or not). 
 But a full Saturday preview for 4 new books specifically tailored to a particular audience and see the models of things we knew were already coming seems a bit too much. I wish they would have added more teasers than just kill team. As it is the most lacklustre preview of the year, not bad, just little content for a “pre-view”...

I'm tempted by Blood Bowl. I already have a few teams, and what's in the box is interesting. Down to the referees, I see an Elven cleric and dwarven wizard there.

If the Dreadfane warbands get released separately, that might interest me.

Congrats! Now go hug it, build it and paint it!

Also: I see the coasters are on the GW website separately. Just not with a price.

Is this what parenthood feels like!?

As a cat owner, can confirm that I regularely put paint and superglue to my cats*. Children are probably the same.

* More accurately, cats put paint and once even superglue on themselves, and even more often, cat hair on minis.

Hahaha, No worries your positive energy and excitement has made this community a better place.
I feel like this whole thread is @KingBrodd fan thread. I think it is sometimes tough with this hobby due to prohibitive costs and occasional toxicity but to see someone genuinely excited about it reminds me of why I love this hobby.

We don't have any Lumineth with swords like that at the moment so maybe a tease whats coming next for them?

Could be, but a bit hard to say how. Doesn’t look part of one of the temples, and Vanari probably don’t have greatswords. Maybe the Tyrionic side has a heavy infantry or something.

Or it’s just model because they know many people wanted a new Swordmaster model.

the preview didn't really have anything related to the Hammerhal herald with the  Vampire.

so either it was just a random post and a nothing burger or still a tease for something further down the line

Yes so the dream lives on

Anything announced today would have been for a specialist game so not a full army. I guess that was the best part of the preview!
