Who wants to bet that following Wrath of the Everchosen we get another narrative book "Battle for Azyr" or some such for Destruction/Order, featuring Gordrak and his siege upon the walls of Heaven.

That's a lot of Jes Goodwin concept art. They might be using it simply because it means they can avoid showing OOP high elf models or old high elf art but could be promising.

Ohh they hired the Leviathan Warships trailer guy (ok not really but the same voice acting style)

Honestly REALLY happy to see this. It looks like GW is both creating a new army, but also going back to the roots for the new Light Aelves. I can bet a lot of high elf players are feeling rather happy that they might get to use their old models in a new line of war and if they've sold them off in a fit of sad rage; they can get really shiny really up to date new sculpts! 

 

Overall very nice news! Sure its not until Spring, but that fits with GW steadily teasing us with hints and trailer spoilers for a good few months until then, which fits well with how they typically release a fresh force. Hopefully they put a little more up front, I felt with Ossiarchs that they held back a little early on, which makes sense as it was a good sized, but not massive force so there was a limited range to show. But I think a bit more early on really gets people excited for the right things. 

 

Great news, very happy to hear about it. Shame there was no Seraphon news, but honestly I can't imagine that we'll have to wait long to hear about them.

I hope that I'll be able to do something with my old high elves : they were my main army back in early 90' . If some kitbash is possible, their standing alignment is what I liked with them. spears, bows, cavalry, multi balista and the chariots!

Does this mean we get Tyrion too, as they seem to be a duo in the lore. I’m also rather surprised the  Kurnothi elves didn’t get a Battletome before Hysh.

Teclis model has that rumor engine of the horns with the tassle and ornate details on it

NVM: the horn is split in the engine but it look very similar so it maybe part of the army

If I was an Aelves fan, I'd be angry right now. Just give them a single proper image of the new Aelves, GW. :P

I really hope those designs are just to get people excited and not the look they're going for. I don't want to see the same old aelves; show me fresh designs!

 

Also curious if Tyrion will be involved in this.

Would be cool if Aelves broke off from Order into their own Alligience.

By the way, I am currently not sure if I am amused by the new campaign book for chaos. Like, it took gw years to finaly do a StD battletome and now they just put it up and announce 1-2 months afterwards a campaign book that contains like the rest of the rules that should have beein in the StD book. I really feel somehow betrayed by this release politic~ They didn´t even released all stuff we have now rules for, but already tease us to buy a new book and ruleset. I really should have expected this after they did exactly the same to 40k chaos.

Nevertheless, the new announced models look once again fabulous. I am really curious about the Hyshian Aelves. With the current GW trend I also expect here some sort of mutation or downside to the faction.

 

Edit: Someone else thinking about how to misuse the statue of Celestine as a greater chaos daemon? I mean, come on, it would be a great base for a keeper of silence...or a female bloodthirster even

Very excited about this tease, high elves were my first love. I’ll have to reconsider what to buy next couple of months. ..

I'd like it if Aelves were their own GA, I think it would make a lot of sense and be pretty cool. 

One big hope I have for this release is there is some kind of cool lore or interplay between these elves and the Idoneth. Afterall Teclis created both of them. Maybe a sub faction like the new KO one or cities where 1 in 4 units can be Idoneth or something.

I'd take the name Battletome: Pointy Elves over Battletome: Lytelven Recmeciators or something equally silly.

What sense? What would GA: Aelves give us that GA: Order doesn't already? Order does not mean Sigmar's allies - Order means "I hate Chaos, Death and Destruction, and I want to build a civilisation". Aelves fit that description. It would be like adding 6th color to MtG - doable but what's the point? And do you really think that single species GA would be cool?

I'd suspect they'd hate each other no?

For the Deepkin the pointy boys would be a constant reminder of how Teclis failed them and doomed them to an existence clinging on to what little they do have in some of the most remote and inhospitable places in the Mortal Realms.

Pointy guys look down on Idoneth as a misshapen, malformed failure that only had value as a stepping stone  to their own creation. It's not like Elves in general have ever been particularly humble...

Yeah I previously thought they hated Teclis based on the battletome lore. 

The new Idoneth novel makes it seem like they have a much more favourable view of Teclis and Tyrion than I previously thought though. It makes it sound like they still structure most of their laws and teaching on what Tyrion and Teclis showed them. Plus they still worship the old Asur pantheon. So in that sense the new elves are likely to speak the same language, worship the same gods and have similar academic philosophy. Either way it will be cool to understand how the new elves have overcome the flaws inherent to both Idoneth and DoK.

It would give a lot to the narrative. Currently the lore calls tensions between different Order Factions (which is the lore for why order armies may fight against each other). Meanwhile, all Aelves we have (including Sylvaneth) show an exterme egoistic view on the things. We have lore that outright calls how unhappy Allarielle is with Sigmar. We know that Idoneth raid anything to gain souls. Moriathi...well, we all know her. In this point, an alliance of aelves would be great as it would allow gw to utilise different motifs for future lore. Sigmar (and so Stormcasts) may loose their leading role, something that a lot of people wished for a long time. Aelves meanwhile could turn into new big players.
It would also allow GA:Order to shrink so gw could introduce maybe some new human factions or similar, maybe giving "order" a new taint.

While Order splitting in two wouldn't be completely uncalled for,  I'm not sure if splitting cleanly into elves and non elves would make much sense, lorewise. It definitely doesn't seem to be in the cards in the near future anyway.

Seraphon don't really "follow" Sigmar either. They VERY much do their own thing that just happens to coincide with agreeing with Sigmar at the same time as both are opposed to Chaos. The Pestilens story (Legends of Sigmar Omnibus 1) shows this off really well.

 

I think its important to realise that the Grand Alliances are not alliances that you might envision were you playing a computer game, they are much more flexible and dynamic. Heck Death has Flesheaters who are utterly insane beyond even Nagash's ability to control. They very much do their own crazy thing; however they are undead which lumps them in with Death.

 

Order is just those factions that build settlements and take lands and oppose Chaos*. They have some common grounds within them, but they are fully able to have wars against each other. Even within a single racial faction there are plenty of civil war stories and competing tribes/temples/cities/fleets etc....

 

 

*Actually its more that they are sedentary cultures more than anything else, even that is fairly loose since Orruks WILL build fortresses and castles and establish long term settlements.
