Why does everyone seem to think there is a two faction box set on the way? Did I miss something or is it just speculation?

GW has revealed 1 new model for the Ogors and at teh same time announced that the Tithe of Bones is coming. It's basically half of a new box tease like we got for Skaven and Flesheaters etc... Only GW is being all cagey about the other half of the box and, with the new Death army video (we assume) that could hint at the other half of the box's contents.

 

So there's nothing confirmed, just some educated guesswork based on what GW has released in the past and what they've shown this time around.

This feels pretty accurate to me.

I imagine the other half is going to  be a "Deathrattle"ish army. The Skeleton models are really old, and the Skeleton warband points to some pretty good looking models.

As much as I would love them to bring back half the tomb king lineup, since I have an entire tub bubblewrapped and stored away, I don't think it's ever going to happen.

Yeah, ok. I figured the Tithe could be a new Death faction but I see no reason to believe it’s a dual box set. If GW release another new faction I would have guessed it will be more along the lines of the Gloomspite/Idoneth/Daughters of Khaine and we’ll see a series of videos leading up to the release.

Honestly though, that video could be anything so who knows.

I feel like the Tithe of Bones is definitely worded to be a Global Campaign like Vgilus ablaze. Think about it this way - the Tithe of Bones could be the central factor of the campaign where all models slain in the campaign are basically being tallied into the ranks of the dead.

 Whether or not this implies a new army is probably to be seen, but I wouldn't expect a brand spanking new army while we just got three new tomes announced

Yeah Tomb kings Skeletons are really old and would have needed a update.

sure the Skeleton’s from the legion of Nagash have a few years on their buckle, but they have aged very very well.

I agree. At the moment it could be anything. GW changed their strategies very often. 

They sold Start Collecting Boxes, Battleboxes, Faction 1 vs. Faction 2 Boxes with one new model each, Faction 1 vs. Faction 2 Boxes with more than one new model each etc.

It could also be an entire new set concept. Maybe we don't get a set with faction 1 vs. faction 2 again, who knows.  Maybe we might get an entire new Ogor range with all the resin Ogor models updated. Im kidding, but this would be very cool. 

I guess the faction 1 vs. faction 2 makes the most sense, but it could also be totally different.

Won't happen.

No way.

Dual army box is...2 different armies, just to be more pappealing for more people. Otherwise, it is just GW shooting his own foot.

There is a patern already here: the tease is done, then presentation of the new character, the one or 2 army(ies) are presented. But, NEVER a new army.

More of this, each time we see an army in such a video, only minis in the box are in the video AND ALLL mini in the video ARE in the box.

Last but not least, the content presented is consistent in value to one half of the box (one army side) : ogors, leadbelchers and an ironblaster plus the brand new Ogor tyrant (all in platic and full options kits).I bet this box will come VERY soon (I won't be surprised to see it in august or beginning of september)

On the topic of where does the music from The Tithe Part 1 Necropolis, come from, I think at the end you can hear Mongolian style throat singing doing the bass drone. To me that suggests a more Asian and less Celtic origin.

Not sure about the accent though. Could be chinese/mongolian/Eastern european/Indian filtered through a British actor

I think it's a mistake to try to use real world references to get a feel for what Tithe of Bones is. The music has an Asian steppes feel yes; there's potentially throat singing or synthesized throat singing yes; the architecture could be considered Khmer in style yes; there's a "northern lights" feel to what's over the building yes - but because true originality is almost non-existent, all these relationships you guys are just spotting are just the brainstorming seeds that lead the studio to develop whatever is coming.

So I think you're all mostly right but in the end it doesn't matter too much. I mean, it WILL be like something ppl are guessing but it's not a code with 1 right answer to be cracked.

The only thing I know is that I like the feel I get which is a good sign - it should be something new as it is different from all death (if it IS death) so far (death is trite and boring in AoS and needs new blood like steppe style mounted vampire archers).

100% this. This sounds like a release which will have some real world elements in it but it’s been jumbled up and turned to AOS. Don’t forget that Kharadron Overlords and Idoneth Deepkin are jumbled up from what some players were used to. Why would this release be no different?

I guess it has been said but if not:

Cypher lords can be used in a StD army, it is said on his page. So I guess all warcry bands will be the same. So maybe we will not have a darkoath army as we have the beasts warband

Wonder what it could be?

That all does look pretty Deathy. Though I'd like that last one to be a new Fabius Bile.

It could be Ogors vs orruks. The pact of bones that has been broken being an alliance between the two. That way we would see a new plastic sculpt to support the battletome release for those two factions as well. 

I don't think they would do a box with an all new faction as one side and then an older WHFB faction as the other.

My guess is it's probably a new Mortarch/whatever was released from the Stormvault in Lethis but whatever it is though I'm really excited for it.

Looncurse was entirely new sculpts on one side and older sculpts on the other minus a new hero.

Only the two heroes were new models, Looncurse released a few months after the Gloomspite Gitz dropped, so all the squigs were available long before already.

I like the idea that the pact of bones/feast of bones and the tithe of bones are unrelated.

Skeletons can't be particular taste, but man flesh...

It makes more sense to me that the Mawtribes had an alliance with the Darkoath during the events of the Malign Portents "Pact of Bones".  Something has broken that alliance and now the Mawtribes plan to feast on the tribes of man.  So I'm guessing new army for death, box set for Mawtribes and Darkoath.

They are old. They are a pain to assemble. But man, they look pretty damn cute on the table, especially in horde of spear models. Love them. 

Skeleton warband looks pretty good to and you can mix match them with skellys for more variety. TBH, no need of new skeletons footmen. But a skeleton machine (catapult, charriot, etc...) or big monster (giant bone?), it is an insta buy for me.😍

Comparing Shadespire warband to old skelletons... It probably will be decisive factor whether or not I buy "new" Deathrattle. Don't be lazy GW. New Skelletons are a must.

A little part of me would die if they did this. I don't think I could face painting another horde of skellies. Saying that, the new contrast would speed things up.

There are so much older models that didn't get any update (Skaven métal range, Gutbuster, Night Gob, Gor, Ungor, Dryads...). I don't think skeletons will be update, they are already in a AoS box with round bases.

Skaven metals aren't that bad though - and at least they avoid the terrible mould bubbles that fine cast suffers with. I'd far rather see GW update and fully remove all the finecast from their system!
