RumourEngine-Sep17-Image2kjvhhrj.jpg

So what do we think of this? Hints towards magic so possibly something to do with the psychic awakening but I’m hoping this is Aelves

Hard to say, doesn't really match anything I've seen. It looks vaguely Aelvish, but I will point out that elf gems are usually round rather than square, for whatever that's worth.

Ogors as one of the next WHU Warbands?

Artwork in the game is typically representative of the Warbands. Beastgrave contains artwork for a Hunter and Frost Sabre.

Warp entities != chaos gods. Chaos gods are a very specific set of warp entities that follow a bit different rules than other warp entities.

Ooh, do you have any more information on the distinction? I'd been under the impression that it was mainly how they were perceived by their worshipers, and how they behaved with regards cooperating with other powers which divided things like the Elven/Eldar gods from the Ruinous powers?

Nice find!

I'd say that definitely confirms the rumored Ogor Hunter/Kitty warband.

Which means the rumor so far has been...fairly accurate?

Quote

I did hear some time back there were maybe 10 warbands this season (although I think 2 are from dreadfane as they were SE & NH), the others were (IIRC) DoK, Ogrurrrs (specifically 1 hunter and 1 or 2 animals), Wanderers, FeC (or might have been free peoples I can't remember), Seraphon, Slaanesh, Nurgle and another skaven. I myself would have liked Idoneth but this is a pretty nice mix of stuff, and at least no more Khorne or excessive SE.

So from the rumor (which was a little before Beastgrave was announced)

Dreadfane Stormcast/NH

Wanderers (Kurnothi)

FEC (Accurate)

Seraphon

DOK

Beastclaw hunter (Accurate)

Nurgle (Accurate)

Slaanesh

Skaven

Actual so far:

Kurnothi

Beast of Chaos

Gitmob

Beastclaw Raiders

Orruks

Nurgle

Flesh Eater Courts

That leaves just one unrevealed warband, assuming the usual 8+Dreadfane.  I'm going to guess one more Order warband, hopefully Seraphon to go with the overall Beast theme but who knows really.

From the art of the cards:

-Kurnothi

-Beast of Chaos

-Gitmob

-Beastclaw Raiders (hunter)

-Orruks (Ironjawz)

-Nurgle (if the big woman with horns is a nurgle shaman/wizzard/whatever)

-Flesh Eater Courts

-DoK (SoS).

( 8 bands, No seraphon....)

Unless it's a gem from the Realm of Light, where the artwork has lots of crystals.....  Last Aelvish Faction inbound?

Well there are a couple artworks that made me go hmm.

There are a few of Grots running around on foot, specifically one dropping Caltrops. I'm wondering if that goes with the Ogor Hunter.

This one is different to the Wolf Rider ones in that it doesn't have body armour.

There's also some really interesting large beast silhouettes. I'm assuming these are just general flavour for the realm of beasts29-BG-ENG.png.abf2bd7b0914bcda0a92596b6a335a59.png

@annarborhawk Aelven gems are round. I also see two entwined snakes on this staff - maybe new Light Wizard?

Yeah there are a few Nurgle cards which should confirm this.

While you are correct, the Archmage on horse staff for example is angular, so it would still be a possibility. 

That said i  dont think it is Elves.

I'm still leaning towards an elder exodite release. The dino tail from the other unsolved rumour engine. I also believe we will see the announcement for battletomes on Sunday.

That would leave for the rest of the year: bonereapers, sisters, psychic awakening (which looks to be a staggered release), the chaos battletome and there is still more to come from specialist games like the lizardman blood bowl team,  more aeronautia and shadepspire. And the normal Xmas bundles. 

Seems the rest of 2019 is shaping up nicely!!

A grot for the Hunter warband is plausible. While an Ogor hunter would be a strong model I doubt he's on par with someone like Mollog, so he could have a decent sized retinue of little buddies. Maybe even a Yhetti if we're really lucky.

Definitely new Frost Sabres, new Icebrow Hunter but that Grot doesn't look like Gnoblar -  his nose is too small.

Gnoblars still exist in AoS?

The same grot is featured here. He's unarmoured and no helm unlike the wolf riders.

The thing that has me really interested is what is the creature in the right of this card? That weird white face in the background.

Sure, they are just named Grots like other Goblinoids. Maybe that's the reason of the aesthetic change.

I'm guessing this serpentine figure in the bottom is the DoK.

DoK isn't seen... Where did you see an art with a witch?

It's a lovely thought but I doubt they'd leave a large amount of new miniatures off the covers of the battletomes. 😕

We could always get lucky and score a new character or two though!

I find it funny how there are more Stormcast Enternals than regular humans on the cover of Cities of Sigmar.

Because they are in every bigger sigmarite city? They are just a background for that freeguilder. He is the most important on this picture.

*slams like button so hard the mouse breaks*

YES. New plastic hunter and tusks, christ yes. I'd hoped and hoped and then CONFIRMATION. Haven't been so buzzed by a model in ages. He's gonna have  crossbow and some traps and a sabretusk with actual top jaw sabre teeth... This is what I wanted.

Ahem. The blightking looks cool but that gobbo... He's not one of the wolf riders we've seen, looks like he might be waring a sash of chainmail..? Maybe he'll be lumped in with the Ironjawz warband? I know they don't care for grots but not sure where he fits, we do seem to have eight warbands confirmed if the 'Retrieve Javelin' card depicts one of the DoK melusai.

One things I just noticed is that there is a white skulled beast in #39 Ritual Kill that is also echoed in #29 Jabbing Spear ... maybe a new type of beast to go with the hunter?

Those grots though, they got me wondering what they could be. If it doesn't go with the Ogor, how badass would it be if it was a Nasty Skulkers warband?

It somewhat makes sense, based on the initial announcement on the warhammer community page emphasized the Stormcast  as part of the main force of cities of sigmar, to make up for purge units. With other cities would get other Order units in addition as part of their main force.  The other Forces of Order were part of the inital announcements appeal attempt to consumers and it may be a key part of the mechanics of the army composition.

No. From another card (shield bash or shield rush or something like that). The centaur charGing a Sister of Slaughter. But I didn't see this one.
