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. 

For objective capture, the simpliest rule is like the orgor one: "count as X" where X is can be more than one (for big giants 10?, for actual gargant 5? etc...)

I don't think that we need 4 or 5 kist. The actual one could see an additional sprue for weapons and specific items, plus an additional big one à la "Imperial knight" of 40K. Maybe some tiny giant (well, it sounds weird), sold by pair or tiny giants.

I agree that they wont work as a stand alone army. Unless they have 'lesser slaves' or something that act as hordes/screens. Especially if they are based on the current gargant warscroll. They need stonehorn levels of damage and durability in a meta where many armies and units can ****** out 40-60 damage a phase.

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

Same date iirc 20.01.2020

It's a pain to look these things up after they're already released, but to give an example of the last leak, we got the shipping confirmation for the warcry cards that are on pre-order this Sat about 12-5. So like 6-10 weeks is probably a solid estimate. Applied to the current leaks, we're looking at somewhere between end of February and Mid to late March.

Also, based on the similar ship timing, I'm going to change my guess and predict a Behemet/Seraphon dual release, maybe even a battlebox, assuming the Giant faction is anything you could make a battlebox out of to start with.

For the gargants I'm expecting something more akin to how Troggoths play rather than an Imperial Knight equivalent in AoS.

Gargants. Or make Gargants vs Seraphon box.

@madmac I'm not so sure about that.  That would make 3 factions coming out in a very short time frame.  Who would you put in the box vs. the Pointy Aelves then?

Hopefully no box. Really not in the mood to be scalped on the unique model.

Not everything has to be a box. I'm just guessing based on the ship dates for Seraphon/Gargants being pretty much the same.

Oh no...an army of giants? Giants are just bigger Ogors...*powerful sweating*

Here's hoping GW goes out of its way to distinguish their background/visual identity from the ogres.  Bit concerned about the prospect of another faction of big thick dudes who like smashing and wear gut-plates, trousers and not much else.

It would be good it they could bring in some of the tragedy or melancholy the WHFB giants had. Doesn't have to be literal sky-titans but it would be a distinctive theme. The quote from the WHFRP bestiary stuck with me:

"Lost and done. Our empire is no more, lost in the sands, trampled by insects. Ours is the long slow fade to quiet. Ironic for we whose voices once shook the mountains’ roots. Not many left to mourn our passing now, not that you scurrying parasites would bother. Of course we turn to drink... or to the darkness in the North. Both are ways of forgetting what we’ve lost."

Regardless I think it's safe to say that some of their background will be tied in to Gordrakk's upcoming attack on Excelsis. A siege is the perfect time to start showing off a new faction of giants.

Makes sense actually. Last week I was on vacation in the UK and I was at one of their major store fronts and was chatting with one of the employees who asked what faction I played. I told him Legion of Blood and then I proceeded to talk about how I wished LoN would get updated and/or there would be more Vampire stuff. He told me that he has heard internally of a Soulblight related army coming out but not until 2021, which seems like a really long ways away but I don't know. He also mentioned some really big models coming out in the near future fr AoS. If there was a Soulblight related army coming out then I could very well see "Legions of Nagash" being phased out for specific Death factions and not the LoN "soup" as we know it.

Interesting about the possibility of Giants. I posted the above last November. When I was in the UK at one of GW's major stores I was told about how an army of "giant" models was coming for destruction this year and then he went on to talk about a Soulblight specific battletome end of this year or start of 2021. I took all of that with a grain of salt but now it seems a little more legit.

Gargants probably won't have Gnoblars to make horde armies. And the model count will be probably lower than Mawtribes. How many Imperial Knights are in the 2000 army? 3-5?

Depends on how you build your army and if your taking Armigers but yeah, 3-5. Mawtribes varies but is usually around 30ish, at least on the Gutbuster side. BCR can actually get down to 6 if you just spam Stonehorns.

There was a rumor a year or two ago about Ogors being re-released as much bigger and fatter models with unit sizes all being in the 1 to 3 range. I wonder if that rumor was actually about this Sons of Behemet faction. Suppose we might find out in a few hours :P.

Maybe a big frame with several different helmet and weapon options so people can go ham customising their giants, which is one of the reasons Knights are so popular (plus the fact that any Imperial and Chaos player can take one...).

One of the best ogor build is BCR (and very competitive!) with 4 stonehorns (various builds) and 2 or 3 units of low models counts Mournfangs. So, I won't be chocked to see an army of gargants with 3-5 Superbibg-Gargants and few normal gargants, just making them differents with sprues options (weapons, heads, visible relics & accessories, big stones for catapult-like guy, etc... and an additional sprue to the actual gargants to make them even more customisable.

+ the rule of "count as X" for objectives.

New armies usually do NOT get a box on release. I was very suprised when Bonereapers did, It's certainly the exception to the rule. Typically you would see new models show up in a battleforce/vs box / start collecting ~1yr after the army comes out... They want to sell kits at full price first.   That said, their buisness model while mostly predictable is always evolving, so perhaps Feast of Bones was a bellweather. 

Anyway I think the fact that "Sons of Behemat Warscroll Cards" is a product indicates that there must be some new kits. You're not going to sell a pack of 2-3 cards. I don't think they'll include ogors or models from all these other battletomes that JUST came out. It could possibly be 1-3 new kits,  each with multiple builds. Multiple builds for the existing gargant, could be 10 different units. from those few kits. Would be smaller than even DoK and FEC, but we know how popular imperial knights are so it could work.

Gloomspite also got a duel box close to its release

Yep, and some others also: armigers were in a dual army box (way) before IK release, IK were in a big box before IK codex release, gloomspite & more recently OBR...

So, everything is possible. Remember that 2020 is not (supposedly) an AoS year: there is no Big new starter set (which will most certainly be a 40K one this summer) and every battletomes are done (well, except seraphon soon). So, it is really possible to see new armies and maybe a big thematic box (à la IK for example, which was almost 2 IK full kits+ a decor+rules). And of course the usual dual army boxes (probably one more this year, even 2) and the traditional 4 christmass battleforces.

One thing we have not seen in AoS yet is a Shadowspear type box. All brand new models (easy to build/starter set variety) in a dual army box.  This could be a good way to get some new sculpts out there for Seraphon (similar to how the new STD box is designed to compliment existing kits with dynamic yet unflexible models), if they don't want to completely replace some of the dated seraphon plastic kits. 
I think it's also quite possible from a business release timing/cadence perspective.... Soul Wars is over a year and a half old now... We got Shadowspear almost 2 years after Dark Imperium.

I don’t think we’ll see anything about these tonight. This’ll be the pointy elves time. They don’t usually show multiple brand new armies, for the same system at least. Maybe Adepticon in March.

That's actually the exact kind of thing that can happen - someone sees a thing, assumes what it is, and reports it as such.  But it's actually a different thing.

So warcry cards for armies not yet released and armies not even mentioned.and yet nothing for cities of sigmar the evidence is mounting up .no other army is getting this sort of treatment it really is leaving a lot of people out in the cold. Enjoy the aelves and giants shame there will be no humans to fight.

Warscroll Cards, not Warcry Cards. Cities of Sigmar also got Warscroll Cards, I own them!
