I'd be really surprised if they drop the entire model line of Tithe Fallas on our heads tomorrow.

I'm thinking we might be looking at a Shadowspear like situation here. So they show the box content of all new models Ogres vs. Tithe, with BT:Ogres hot on its heels, but the Tithe only gets rules in the box to tide them over until a full BT and army release at the tail end of the year. Alternatively, it's a Blightwar like deal, if Tithe includes old skeleton models, and it's the Tyrant and Coffin Guy plus old models and then Tithe a bit later.

Even if I'm wrong and there is no box, I figure at the very least they'll keep the new Mortarch himself under wraps a bit longer, just as they did with Morathi and Olynder.

 

All in all, this year looks pretty full come tomrrow. With Tithe and SoB we are looking at two full new model line releases in four months time. That alone will take plenty of space.

Add to that:

-Beastgrave, which I guess will be one drop of the Core set and about one or two paired warband drops this year

-A second wave for Warcry. My guess is two drops of two Warbands, the two Warbands not yet revealed and my guess Solo drops for Iron Golems and Untamed Beasts. Though the composition might vary here, they might keep Golems and Beasts starter exclusive for longer. They might also drop some other stuff, like more wandering Monsters, Terrain or Expansions that move the scope of the game.

-Psychic Awakening, which I guess is not only a set or book, but also an opening of a new narrative Chapter like Malign Portents was and it might be followed by further narrative game expansion. It might also come with some splash releases, as they did with the two new vehicles anlongside Apokalypse.

-Primaris still haven't got all their new models, there will also be further mini-dex releases with one Character for Marines.

-Not to forget Cities and Orruks. They may come together in one drop. I wonder if they may have abandoned the entire Endless Spells and Terrain business after the Sylvaneth debakle, seeing how they did not show any for these two. Personally I would welcome that, since I feel it was really getting tedious and I prefer my terrain not to be a mandatory part of army lists. But I'm primarily a collector and modeler, I can totally see more gaming focused hobbyist feeling left in the dust if their armies go empty handed. Also, many of those terrain pieces are quite appealing models and I guess this business model was the only way to get them produced at all.

Add Forgeworld releases, likely something Killteam and Blackstone Fortress, andit quickly adds up to an almost full schedule for the rest of 2019.

I don't think they're going to hide the Mortarch this time, since they already revealed him (assuming that the guy at the end of Part III was actually him).

I don't know how often they do releases for both systems at the same time, but a CoS/Warclans double release might be able to happen at the same time as the final (for now) Primaris wave.

That'd be at the start of September, Beastgrave could be towards the middle after that,  then Bonetithe takes up the first bit of October.

Mawtribes will likely be another small release, coinciding with a possible vs box at the end of the Bonetithe releases (solely based on the dialogue from the Tyrant teaser) similar to what happened with GG and Sylvaneth, just on a shorter time scale. Otherwise they're just quick, one week drop.

Warcry gets their new warbands a bit after that (I'm assuming the starter bands are going to stay exclusive for a while yet), then SoB and the Psychic Awakening release in November, with the final Chaos book sneaking its way in somewhere.

I don't think that Underworlds will get anything new this year except Beastgrave, stuff like the ogre release might not even happen this year (we were only promised "at least" one book per alliance by the end of 2019, and Warclans would fill the Destruction quota), as you said, this one's gonna be packed.

Maybe Ogres and the last Chaos book are a dual release, IDK. I'm really not sure how GW would be able to fit all this into 3 months, IIRC, they don't really do any big releases in December.

I'm hoping for some art that reveals all of the beastgrave warbands. I know we got some for season 1 of shadespire, but did we get the same for underworlds?

Yeah, they dropped a teaser video that previewed all the warbands before Nightvault was even released, and the first set of expansions came out less than a month after the box set. I'm sure it'll be the same for Beastgrave.

I'll take any look at where they are taking Hysh Aelves. Warcry warband, Underworlds anything.

Kinda lost hope on that one.

I think it’s very very unlikely GW previews Hysh Aelves (outside a game like Beastgrave) when they are showing a new Death army.

Whilst its odd to pull a load of elf stuff and then release a Death army that seems to be what we are getting this year - so new aelves are likely next year at best. The oddest thing is more how GW has been teasing us with the two aelf forces since AoS started, whilst the death army hasn't really been teased at all save for 3 videos.

Then again if its the return of a TK style army then its a fantastic thing to get it in early for all those old bones players!

£2.99 for 10 chainrasps and the ETB sequitors is ludicrous, I am sold. That's like a little over 10% of what the (overpriced, admittedly) retail box costs and vastly cheaper than ebaying them.

Even when the cost bumps up to its regular, this is still a chance to get nighthaunt and SC stuff for incredibly good value. In fact if it's anything like the 40k one, we'll be seeing models like Lady Olynder and similar going for less than half price. I am absolutely onboard with picking up bits and pieces of nighthaunt as painting projects.

EDIT: I mean damn, get issue 1 and 4 and you have a starter Warcry warband for about a tenner.

EDIT: And hey, that looks like a unique Knight-Incantor!

In Spain we call this " fascicle collection", and we're very used to buy this type of collections. Warhammer Conquest is very successful here in term of sales... I hope it was available soon...

Yep its popular for a lot of hobbies as a method of getting different people into the hobby itself. 

The 40K one has been really popular. I really hope the Nova today shows off more of what we'll get beyond the first 4 issues or so. Though it looks to be a solid Nighthaunt VS Stormcast setup it will be interesting to see what terrain or other items might appear

Yeah, I am very interested to see what the whole collection adds up to, even if just the SCE and (potential) terrain side of things.

Does that new stormcast solve a rumour engine? The armoured glove grasping the leather-wrapped staff

I don't see in their web site a list or a picture of the whole collection. Any link please?

(for 40k, there are pics of the whole SM/DG armies+decors)

Are you talking about this one? It doesn't quite match the stormcast grip/handle style

Pretty sure the 40k list didn't appear until quite a while after launch, certainly not until after their four-issue trial. This only went up this morning so you will likely be waiting a few months to see the list.

That said, we can look at the 40k version and get an idea of the kinds of models they'll include. Most of the stormcast and nighthaunt ETB/starter set ranges will be reused for this. Probably some of the single-sprue characters as well.
