I don't know why people have been hating on nearly every Warcry war band reveal, they are great models. The Iron Golems look like a mix of classic diving suits and scale armor(plus they have a CHAOS DWARF IN PLASTIC PEOPLE), the Untamed Beasts have that classic barbarian look of furs and manly horned helmets taken to the logical AOS 11, the Splintered Fang..... well actually people to seem to like the splintered fang. In my opinion the Cabal is great, they have that whole "creepy assassin/spy" look which I greatly enjoy, with the leader(?) pulling off a Batman style landing. What's not to love?! Finally, let's be real here guys, did any of us actually expect something as long awaited as a Gutbuster battletome to be revealed at a non GW held event?

God forbid they advertise their new game. 

It seems that God forbade advertising AoS.

People "hate on" the WarCry reveals because we still dont know anything about how the game actually plays - some people don't get excited over just seeing cool models.

They look like a sneaky warband but I can't even begin to imagine how that translates to the gameplay because I have no context.

I did call Ulgu as separate from Hysh and linked to assassins (yeah I know I’m no genius and was predictable). Love it but the absence of battletomes make me think that either we will have a super busy autumn or they are going to miss their objective to update all existing armies by end of 2020...

unless they create order soup battletomes or start dropping few minor factions or we have 2 battletomes per month in 2020...

As I said - there wasn't any reveals for 40k too. And there is always tomorrow. Be patient ( and somebody already said, and I agree with him, that since GW doesn't know when Sylvaneth battletome will arive they don't want to advertise new battletome).

I actually like this new warband, and I like even more how they make all these warbands look very distinctive from eachother. Lots to choose from, also for AOS chaos factions (provided they will have proper warscrolls)

Interesting that they show 9 models, where the previously shown warbands had only 8 (if I am not mistaken) Wonder if they held some back from the others.

For expectation, I don't think you could expect more from it than this, no reason to be really disappointed imo. I wouldn't be surprised if in the original plans they would have shown one or two more BT by now, but seems they still have issues with the import or production in China. Speaking of which, does anyone has more information about what is really wrong, from a source closer to the source?

@PJetski I know, and I apologize, I don't often go into rants like that. It just seems that people are throwing ****** for minor reveals like this a lot lately. I'm relatively new to this hobby(fourth year as of this year), but from what I have heard GW didn't used to be so informative when it came to new releases such as this.

Yeah, nothing for the main games but it was to be expected. UK Expo is for board games mostly so these announcements make sense i think. 

But, we still know nothing about WarCry's gameplay and if the release is in July, they have to start giving some more information about the game.

Wow. I continue to hope witch each Warcry reveal that I will like the new warparty but it seems to be going the same way as Necromunda for me (a game that's appealing to me from a gameplay perspective but I consider off limits because I don't care for the aesthetics of the teams) I get that it's a personal taste thing but I really struggle to understand the decision to make a new AoS skirmish game but only release niche chaos warbands for it :S And yeah they've said they're allowing you to use models from AoS but if it's anything like the existing skirmish it's going to be extremely hit and miss depending on the models available to your army.

Good looking models. Props to artists!

I'd love to see some new Ironjawz models that are this dynamic.

There's been three seminars in May, and the sum total of reveals for all of them combined has been a lot of Warcry minis (but no insight on how it plays) one shadespire mini, and a brief preview of the Generals Handbook and Forbidden Power.

I really do suspect the Sylvaneth/supply problem is deeper than they've admitted.

Also I could be wrong but I believe the "preview" for tomorrow is strictly for Black Library.

I suspect the AoS/40k reveals will be tomorrow.

@michu Are we sure there is a reveal tomorrow ?... 

I can't find anything on the program, and the WC article doesn't say something like "come back tomorrow for more"....

Those crows rule. Maybe it's just the Dark Crystal trailer from the other day lingering but these guys - or at least the dude on the stilts - have a wonderfully Brian Froud/Jim Henson feel to them.

As someone who's still pretty buzzed for Warcry (and was already on the Necromunda train), far more than AoS or 40k, inevitably this is far more interesting for me than a battletome or codex could ever be.

I don't think there will be, tomorrow is Black Library Live. There'll be previews of upcoming books but no AoS game stuff. Schedule is here: https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/05/29/black-library-live-new-booksgw-homepage-post-4/

IMO GW want to create something similar to Chaos campaign from the old Realm of Chaos books. You were creating a chaos champion with retinue and trying to achieve ascension (or spawndom if you're unlucky) fighting with other champions.

 Tomorrow is black library live so will be all book related. 

I want every war cry war band so far, don't care if the game is good or not, as painting projects they are fantastic

I get that, it just comes off as surprisingly niche for something they (seemingly) expect to be a big popular game everyone wants to play.  A little like kicking off a six month preview blitz for a new version of GorkaMorka.

It's ok to be wrong.I'm happy - now I can finally make the Ninety-nine Feathers warband (of Spear of Shadows) fame.

And @Sir Grimm GW didn't said it will be reveal for AoS. Note that there wasn't anything for main 40k (Blackstone Fortress miniatures are in the same category as Warcry warband).

Yeah. The Ninety- nine Feathers is the first thing I though of. Love this warband.

Why would anybody expect anything more ? GW doesn't really tease AoS2.0 Battletome updates like - Fyreslayers,Sylvaneth, FEC etc - they just release them and I doubt there is anything huge coming up for AoS in summer - June is contrast and GHB2019 so it's already huge for AoS, July is WarCry another huge AoS universe release. I'm sure they will sneak in 1-2 Battletomes updates over the summer for AoS - (for example Ironjawz and Seraphon) + Sylvaneth is coming.
