I think that Luminarchs will be a great success, just remember the initial reaction to OB, it was mostly negative until they revealed the full range.

And they got great rules... Funny how that works

Eh the rules don't matter to me - I loved the Ossiarchs for their theme and looks. Good rules helps, but at the same time the power-gamers market is still enslaved to Slaanesh. Plus I'd wager that overall its a smaller portion of the market than the internet might make it out to seem.

I don't imagine the rest of the army will be made up of T-posing elves awkwardly detached from their mounts, so it should be well received. Looking forward to the rest of the units. With Teclis they were trying to do something unique and I don't personally think it worked.

Yeah, in general on Whatts app groups people are chating about how to convert Teclis.  A popular idea is replace the head for a Eidolon one.  Some people wanna remove the Sphix and put Teclis on a modified Balewind Vortex.

The lack of magic on the models is so weired.  No spirals, beams or energies of any sort.

Considering Balewind has vanished from sale that Balewind idea is going to be hard; esp in a few months time!

it not like you can tell which releases are successful anyway outside of the powergamer market who tend to get full army ready by tournament deadlines.

general market it harder to tell and usually gage by army difficulty and accessibility.

Since he's a god leading an army from the Realm of Light I'm not sure how you'd model light magic to be honest. Maybe paint OSL effects from his gems?

OBR also got the box set, I guess many people started with that, should always increase the initial player base.

Teclis: He is a god, creator of whole races, one of the most powerful wizards ever known... I don’t get this feeling from this model.

I would preferred him as a smaller Model (not Nagash size), so you underestimate him and give him magical elements to show this part of his power. And definitely without a pet, I really don’t get the link to this spirit of hysh. 
I like the model of the spirit, but actually dislike the  connection to Teclis. The focus is on the pet and not Teclis.

the riders and spear men are quite nice, like the clean approach!

An Eidolon pretty much has the same pose as the Teclis artwork 🤔

The more I look at them, the more I like the new high elves. A lot cleaner than the old ones.

As for Teclis, if I end up getting it, I would have Teclis in conversation with the spirit. Hyish is a bit of a contemplative place, and I like making dioramas.

Chances are much better of me getting just a few elves that I like, and using them in a Cities army.

Than conversion sounds awesome, and I love the eidolon it's a master piece very beautiful to paint and to watch. On the other side it sounds expensive buying both eidolon and telcis miniatures to make just one... 

I would like to know if Teclis has a alone version like the Lord Arcanum on Tauralon that you can put it on foot

I really don't get what people don't like in Teclis. He's not dismounting - he's just levitating close to his familiar. And I disagree with the criticism of his face. Yes, he's grumpy but not ugly.

Possibly it's just me but I expected a bigger reveal for the aelves to get people hyped... I am not hyped. Maybe that's due to Teclis really being a bummer (at least for me) idk 
The Riders are superb, but not enough to hype me...

How do you feel about the Lumineth so far?

Well all we got was a couple of models and I'm 100% on you that Teclis looks dumb.

For me I'm not hyped until they start teasing rules. There is nothing more disheartening for me than to invest, build and paint an army, only to put it on the table and realizing the army sucks.

I do not like the design of the model, however I think the face is acceptable

Teclis is always ugly, and now he is also older, so that face is ok

Well, don't forget also that we look the miniatures from far IRL and they have their own look & impression on the battlefield. Maybe this one is nice on the table in the middle of an army (even if I'm not a big fan of it right now).

I just wish he was levitating on the ground, instead of near the sphinx's wing. Looks fragile and kinda bizarre. Other than that, it's a beautiful model. Looks pretty easy to fix though.

Alarielle is very old too and looks perfect. They are gods, it's supposed that years dont afect them. As said, the Eidolon's face is incredible, and I think is a God picture too

I wonder if Death is getting any support in that book since it is supposed to be a Death vs Chaos book, or if it is all Chaos all the time?

Yeah, so do I

although it might more about the skaven part of the book, if they are even a part of it in some way, considering that gw was talking about a book that something for everyone who plays chaos

To be fair, Alarielle is much much younger than Teclis. Or, atleast her body is. She was reborn during the Realmgate wars. So maybe 150-200 years ago. As far as we know, Teclis had this form since the Age of Myth.

What’s 150-200 years in the timeframe old world through the end of it, through the time of myth, time of chaos and now the age of sigmar?

I don't know. I never saw much hype for OB compared to pretty much anything else until the rules came out as hilariously broken. Suddenly plenty of people were picking them up. 

Luminarchs will be a massive success though, no doubt about that. People have been clamouring for new Not-HighElves since Day 1 and these are a very good continuation of the WHFB design.

The Age of Sigmar has lasted 200 years or so already, plus 500-700 years of the age of Chaos and the thousands of years of the Age of Myth. 200 years is not a lot compared to the rest of the timescale.

The eidolon is my favourite model in warhammer. It looks really dramatic but isn't over the top fiddly and can still be transported fairly easily. 

Teclis looks too easy to break, that's my only criticism.
