Hopefully that means trees will be this month fingers crossed

WD issues are written 6 months before release so not necessarily, unfortunately.

Was a few weeks ago (I think?). A post on here by someone followed by a second from Tom Lyons.  

Yeah but that's all we have - the word of one person that "they are coming" in some form. Which is nice, but its just one source. We've no additional sources of such a rumour and no photos or any other documentation to back it up. Right now TK or an army that uses their models/theme/style is basically still only in the legacy of the game and in the dreams of gamers.

Still better to discuss on the rumour thread than prices!

And with Citadel wood definitively unavailable on GW site, I start to believe!

At the moment it looks like it's america only at the moment, because in germany (most likely UK as well) and new zealand still have Citadel woods in stock.

New herald, this was the site of ghal maraz, in chamon i believe.

With everyone tooled up with silver, sounds to me that Elixia had some real supernatural problems.

On another note, plastic skin wolves would be awesome...

:(

yesterday on the FR site it was definitively unavailable. Now it is back available for order.

I wonder if it is not same as for the digital battletome... scheduled operation they forgot to cancel.

So sad...

Elixia shows up in the early Realmgate Wars novels, I believe, and there's a silver banshee who aids the Stormcast. I think the important part is 'breathtaking and lifelike silver statuary' which is (a) new and (b) fits with rumours of a construct-based new Death faction.

The next big thing is clearly coming from Chamon, one way or another. Everything revolved around Shyish in the long run-up to AoS 2.0, and something similar has been happening with the Realm of Metal all year - Carrion Empire and Looncurse are both set there, and it's constantly coming up in White Dwarf.

Happy I've spent a year and a half building a 6'x4' Chamon board!

Prices are going up in Germany too. Info is in the newsletter for retailers. If this regards the trees I don't know, so far I know that some of the 40 tanks and the Blood Bowl stuff is getting an almost 25% price increase.

Now, I don't have an intention to start talk about the prices again - everybody who's been watching with open eyes can see, that we're almost back at 8th edition with the market behaivement. Thanks to GHB armies grow in sizes (30+ regiments) and people think it's a must with certain point values. Bigger armies = more revenue and the same goes for a higher price tag on more effective units. Pretty simple pay to win principle...if that is what is important to you.

Alright, I'm getting ready for the stones people are gonna throw at me 😉

I actually wanted to write the same story but you were faster.  The part with "breathtaking and lifelike silver statuary" isn't even that new because the Silver Maiden (or Celemnis the Swordmaiden of the Argent Sisterhood, like she was called back then) was doused with silver in the age of Chaos turning her into a lifelike silver statue (I basicly read the story weeks ago).

But it was really nice that Elixia was mentioned again in the generals Handbook 2019

 

@DinoTitanedition

My comment you quoted was about the Citadel woods, not the prices. I know that the pricerising will happen in germany too.

The diffence is, that in AoS we have also playstyles for smaller games, and units with a size of 10 or 20 can do stuff too, where in WHFB you would simply lose to the passive bonus of a unit.

@EMMachine I don't know if it's like that in the UK too, but in my region "Narrative Play" has nearly died out since the introduction of the GHB. Skirmish went the same fate with the release of the WD rules. If it's smaller scale it usually means, it's rather a boxed game than AoS. But I'd be happy to see pointless games with smaller sizes make a return. I actually really liked the Skirmish supplement too. It worked, with what was in there.

That's why I wrote "almost". Though the smaller the unit gets, the more the trend leans toward a "monstrous" unit. Something that is modelwise big and pricewise costs the same as a unit with more small minis. There is still some great boxes out there though - I believe the Rockgut Troggoths are awesome for a multitude of systems beyond AoS. I use them for Blood Bowl for example, as you can make three from the box.

Agreed same here.  The GHB killed off narrative mostly because the addition of matched play drew back the players who lack social skills to set up fun balanced narrative games.  

I'm hoping the WD skirmish rules get releases as a pdf download

Hmmmm...comment about people lacking social skills made by a person who just insulted the vast majority of tabletop wargamers.

Irony thy name is chord.

Probably best to move conversation about the implications of the Generals Handbook into a new thread folks 🙂

So, what is the general consensus about news on the AoS front this summer? (except Warcry that I don't care about)

It has sure been a content desert for AoS on the Community page lately.  Don't know what that bodes for summer, but it bodes for "not really checking the Community page every day anymore" for me.

Wasn't there supposed to be a campaign that will move the story onward?

Has there been any word about the early july errata for the newer battletomes? I want to order the last few things for my army, but I don't want to risk wasting money if there are major changes.

Nothing so far, just that it comes out at some time at the beginning of this month.

although knowing Gw it could also be at the end of this month, as long as it is still in July

Ah, so they run on valve time, that explains why I'm still waiting on the forbidden power errata.  Thank you.

I guess it depends on how much 40K release are on the horizon, looks like to me they are going to try and push a late summer Primaris marine release before sister of battle comes out.

granted I am for sure the AoS Open day will preview a lot  more AoS content that is not just Warcry for the rest of the summer.

It's been six months since an AoS model release that wasn't a token hero, scenery or for a different game system. Does sorta kill my buzz for the game.

You guys do remember that we've got Warcry releasing on the 20th right?

 

And Apoc just released their last "army faction" article today so the Apoc wave is over or at least on the out - we've likely one more week of general/other stuff and then a likely sold week of WARCRY

This Chamon board is just a rumor. I want to see pictures.

I've got an upcoming event with a July 12th cutoff for rules.  Whether FEC FAQ is before or after this date will greatly impact my summer hahahaha.
