you just got a skaven tome. No new skaven stuff for 2+ years, for sure (they plan the tomes around the minis in the pipe, doesn't make sense to print a tome then release minis)

I will be very sad if there will be no Skaven releases in 2020, the Year of the Rat.

Don’t worry my friend, we are the Vermintide, the danger from beneath.

no rules can hold-keep us-us at bay, we do-do what ever we want to do-do.

Yes-yes,

we scurry-come when least expected!

It would be fitting that there is at least 1 (best case being a complete redo of everything finecas, metal and ancient for a huge release) but I wouldn't get my hopes up.

Doubtful. They're just padding to fill out the GHB so that people spend more money on what they really want, open and narrative play rules. 🤷‍♂️

Best hope may be waiting for youtube reviews, lately they seem to be coming out just before preorders go up and generally show a good deal of each book. Although they may ask reviewers not to show/talk about point changes for this one.

I just want all the non plastic models to get updates. Also maybe one or two more pestilins unit types (like ground troups). 

I'd like to see the same for seraphon and slight fleshing out of existing aos 1.0 armies.

Open play preview today. The open war random army generator looks fun, and is a nice throwback to Realm of Chaos and Rogue Trader; if only I had enough models painted to get any variety out of it... :(

Those cards look HELLA fun.

Imagine having a shared deck and drawing them one at a time or doing it at an event. Utter MADNESS.

I’m imagining myself with like a ton of cards a bottle of water, sweating to get the right cards while looking at my opponents, trying to guess who has what.

so basically me playing poker with cards having the inscription of unit’s that can be taken instead of the pictures you usually see on the poker cards.

I think we'll start to see more model releases decoupled from battletome releases once they get the big battletome push done. Personally, I'm thinking Skaven will get something in 2020 like some new models for Nightrunners and/or Gutter Runners.

They might release a new skaven model as the anniversary model for 2020, but with the skaven battletome just being released I wouldn't hold my breath for anything big

This. I don’t think Skaven have ever had it so good, we must be rock bottom of the queue for new stuff.

I think at best they could get a plastic version of an existing hero like with the Squig loonboss in Looncurse, but I don’t think they get update or new models until they are in line for a new battletome which may not happen until AoS 3.0

I disagree with the notion that Skaven are not gonna get anything next year. I'm not saying that they will 100% get something but this whole "they already got btome" or worse "they're op already no need for new stuff" is a load of bulldung. LoN got battletome last year, and only couple months after they received new models through nighthaunt. Stormcast have gotten new models and book every year basically (yes yes I know, space marines and all that but still). Chaos space marines received new models 1,5 years after their codex release. Who is to say that gw couldn't make clan skryre btome with fully updated skryre range and some new stuff? Obviously that wouldn't massively help mixed skaven lists but some of the updated models could still be used. They could also release new boxed sets with new models or campaign book that comes with new models. 

Again, I don't claim to possess some inside knowledge of gw's doings and future release but the fact is, neither does anyone else here. Gw do what they do, skaven still have pretty horrid old model range in dire need for update so I wouldn't be surprised at all if gw decided to make them the stars of "year of rat". It should also be noted that much like most of 40k 8th ed. codices, aos 2nd ed. Btomes are still mostly rush jobs to get every faction playable so what gw does after all btomes are out is still a mystery.

As everyone are talking about skaven anyway - you will be able to play as Skaven in  VERMINTIDE II (in PvP mode)!!

And it’s telling me I need basically every contrast paint existing to finish my projects lol

The feature that I'm gonna use (a lot) is the inventory: you can manage the paints you already have! (or don't have yet)

 They renamed the existing app. It seems almost identical, with new paints added.  For the contrast  model guides it seems they just did a 1:1 translation from citadel base paints to contrast paints, and then no one bothered to check to see if it made sense:
Vulkite Berzerker:
Paint the skin: Guilliman Flesh
Paint the copper: Fyreslayer Flesh
Funny / Lazy.

Well I’m not sure @sorokyl maybe some colours do not reflect the actual usage... I never used bestifor flesh on a bestigor...

And skeleton horde I saw it used mostly on white capes and clothes...

Inventory was available also in the previous version and it’s essential to keep track of what you have, exactly for the same reasons described in the community article.

Anyway need to find some paints and then I’ll give it a try following the new app. What concerns me is that there’s not many new miniatures and many of the old have not been converted and the filters do not work well :)

I don't know man I reckon Beastmen/ Beasts of Chaos might have it just as bad if not worse. I'm hoping that both of these armies get some love model wise in the next couple years.

Yeah, and with the rate GW are going at the moment I reckon we’ll find 2-3 years being the right kind of timeframe for updates etc. It was more a response to people hoping we’ll be getting new plastics 6 months after a new Tome and Endless Spells. I’d rather any factions other than Skaven got updates in the next year or so tbh, it’s much better for the game. Share the love and all that.

Well the part I found most interesting about the new GHB was that they claimed it would serve us for years to come. Might this one stay for several years instead of only 1?
