I believe if you doubted, now all that Seraphon squatting talk should be permanently put to rest. 😉

Cue Icegoat.

 

These are some exciting times for AoS! We likely know the next 3 releases and 2 of them are new!

Not gonna lie, I was real excited for Teclis and his new aelves but with the news of the Sons of Behemat being an actual thing pretty much all enthusiasm I had for them has been replaced by gargants. I honestly never thought they'd actually do it.

Same. I mean, who wouldn't want to play as a force of marauding giants?

Honestly, at this point I don't care whether they are ancient Greece inspired sky-titans, a rag-tag force of drunkard Aleguzzlers or Games Workshop being very late in trying to cash in on a 7-year old animated tv-show...I want them, and I want to paint them, I want to be them and krump both puny human goldmen and the chaotic spiky bois. And not to be called non-egalitarian, I am ready to krump flamyhair and flyballoon halfmen, skeleton lads and lasses, pointy ears of all kinds, green boyz big and small and the almost-worthy-of-being-unkrumped hungry lads.

I think if the new Giants are more like Titans. I would get them with the elves. Something like the Titans from heroes of might and magic 3 (for those of you who played that lmao)

Behemat is obviously a potential name for a race of behemoths, gargant army being number 1 likelihood. 

For a much longer shot, does behemat sound a bit chaos dwarfy to anyone else? What with forgeworld pulling quite a few of its AoS models and all the warcry reveals where they specifically point out 'yes that is a plastic chaos dwarf' nudge nudge wink wink....im wondering if plastic chaos dwarves might be joining us sometime in the not so distant future.

How can you get hyped by nothing but a faction nam? 🤣 calm down

For me it's the same as being excited about Hysh aelves when all we have is part of a silhouette, I love high elves but I have a soft spot for giant models. Hell it's the same reasons I play Chaos Knights in 40k. At least we know what one of the models looks like if they actually do include Aleguzzlers in the army.

Surely this means a new Giant kit? Maybe an addition to the existing one rather than a replacement?
I'm not big into Giants myself but it's definitely one of the crazier factions they've come up with in a game system that includes fish aelves and space lizards! Definitely going to be watching out for these and seeing how they make it work (I assume similar to how Beastclaw function.)

Behemat was a godbeast and was basicly known as the ancestor of the Gargants, who was under the Scabrous Sprawl (this was the story back in the "Realmgate Wars: Godbeasts" Book). He basicly was killed by the Stormcast Eternals to prevent that Archaon got Behemat under his control.

It will be interesting to see if King Brodd, "last true son of Behemat" has survived.

Wasn't there a battalion in one of those older campaign/big books literally called the Sons of Behemat or something along those lines?

EDIT: Yep, found it; it was a battalion consisting of 5 Giants!

Would be awesome with new Gargants. I'd love some in my Ironjawz army, but I doubt it will be nothing more than fluff due to keywords and how synergies these days rely on correct keywords.

If we are getting the rumoured Gargant battletome, I could see there being rules for including a mercenary/ally gargant in other armies.  As for new models - fingers crossed!  Out of the box, the current one has a fairly heavy old world vibe to it and looks like it's a marauding giant who lives in a forest.  Just imagine a heavily armoured one, or one that has proper gargant sized weapons rather than a tree with a tombstone in it!  Did they have some kind of slave race?  Where are the lady gargants?  So many possibilities!

Mercenary giants would certainly appear to work with the two different faction giants that have been suggested by the rumour mill.

Seems really odd to me, unless there are going to be 4 or 5 new kits that are all giant. 

I don't really see how they would work as a standalone army. I suppose for starters giving them a rule for capturing objectives, like Ogors... 

Eh seems legit though so I suppose we will see.

That seems fairly conclusive then.

Note we don't have a leak for pointy aelf warscroll cards, but we also don't know the faction name yet, so hard to search for.

GW are using the same companies to produce this stuff, like "wargames factory". Presumably you could search based on the exporting company and find everything that way? 

Unless they hide stuff by calling it unrelated names,but if that was the case we wouldn't have found any of this stuff. 

I also searched "idoneth" and "deepkin" to no avail. So no endless spells for us any time soon...

I also found some entry about a Seraphon Battletome (which is a given if they receive new cards) ^^

If the gargants are coming from the realm of light maybe they have gitmobs coming with them. Rippa snarlfang from beastgrave came from there is memory serves from a tribe who worship the evil sun. 

Could see the grotbag scuttlers in there as well, using flying ships to talk/fed/worship the gargants.

Excellent did that ship the same time as the cards? How many weeks are there normally between a shipment leak and a release
