Magnet underneath the table and in the Obelisk. Super awesome floaty terrain if you ever get the balance right.

mind you, nudge the table and the obelisk is launched like a javelin 😂

Or just hang it with a thin (pretty much invisible) nylon thread stuck to the ceiling (but here, wifey will enter in a fury and put the obelisk "somewhere" as a suppository.. 🥵 )

In a furry? Really? 
And that’s what’s she then does with the obelisk. Quite the quarantine you’re having 😂

Unfortunately I think the rule of thumb for now should be any expected updates should be held off for a while longer.

So... Those are the chains holding Slaanesh, right? We can even see his claw. 
That's pretty cool. I wonder if those obelisks will be a Lumineth scenery piece? Wonder what they'll do

Indeed and the chains even gave Archaon a tough time when he was trying to free Slaanesh during the Wrath of the Everchosen campaign.

On the Lumineth obelisks part, I think they'll end up Endless Spells for summoning smaller versions channeled from the void ones to inhibit armies (and possibly chain down monsters in prep for Sons) due to the obelisks themselves being insanely massive, if you zoom in on the picture that's cropped from you can see hints of structures around their bases similar to what's built on the bigger penumbral  engines.(Teclis likes to build big like the other gods)

AoSFPLore-May14-OrbCity3ujs-846x685.jpg

They could still get a downsized version but seeing how the Hysh & geomancy focus is about communing with the spirits i'm betting the Lumineth will get something more like the Hysh structures we've seen in the artwork and are meant to enhance their aetherquartz and thus their own magical abilities.

I`m loving the Kislev preview, but for the me the most exciting thing out of this is the realization that GW is planning on producing new models for the Old World. I had seen the new maps and desire to build a new game system, but I thought that they would mostly try to leverage existing model lines (if they did I missed it)

I`ve never played Warhammer pre-AoS, but I`ve been dreaming about having revisited/improved Bretonnian models. I had been crossing my fingers that GW would reinvent the army of AoS, but now it looks like more of a possibility for the Old World. I don't care really in which world they end up, if I get new Brets I'll be over the moon! I would guess that all Tomb King lovers would rejoice at that news.

IMO that was poorly written.

"Oh look here is the Lumineth! Oh forget it, Mary Sue Archeon just walked in there and owned the probably most secure place in the Realm of Light offscreen!"

 

"Super Mario Star invulnerable Archeon" is a pretty dull plot device.

it wasn't in the realm of light, it was in the void between Hysh and Ulgu. So the Lumineth were likely weakened cut off from their realm (God-king knows what that does to the aetherquartz they need) compared to Archaon who  had chaos at his back and Slaanesh could've been empowering him to free itself.

It works(in my view anyway) that a campaign centered around him would treat him like the horrifying demi-god that destroyed hundreds of worlds, nearly conquered all the Mortal realms and defeated the gods that he is.

Thus why they are so determined to hide the prison, they know they can't hold it if chaos finds it.

Edit: thinking more on it that's the pros and cons of the prison.

Con: we have evidence from the Corebook and "Pantheon" that there's enough chaos energy out in the void to sustain daemons thus why we've seen them clawing at the edges of the realms to get in. So Archaon had daemon support and the chaos energies necessary to be a demigod juggernaut.

Pros: the void between Hysh and Ulgu offers the same natural protection that Teclis and Malerion gave Azyr by combing their magics so Tzeentch can't see what's happening in that realm. So that's why they need to keep it in that general area despite it putting them at a disadvantage if chaos finds them again.

I love the liberators and the Strike chamber so definitely agreed there. We need lightning pilums they can conjure and hurl into approaching enemy ranks and veteran Retributors that have gone full lightning golem with a selection of supernatural Azyr abilities. :D

That said i'm not expecting anything until next year with a possible change to 3.0. 

(I am hopeful though that they'll pull something for more Stormcast heroes like a veteran Extremis paladin from the Astral Templars appearing in BeastGrave. A lone crusader on a battle-scarred lightning dragon to fry Sigmar's enemies and claim the realm  of beasts)

almost done with my entry:)

 

I think it is worth mentioning that there is a price for the winner, but also a Start collecting box for one random competitor. So everyone who enters may end up with a price! I think that is really cool and generous from Element games.

Doctor: Uh oh, I've seen this before. 

Nurse: What is it doctor?!

Doctor: He's getting his hopes up for a speculative new army.  That can only mean 1 thing. 

Nurse: No!

Doctor: That's right. The AoS announcements this weekend will be limited to a more official preview of the recent Lumineth we've seen in the Lowdowns, plus a warcry warband.  His disappointment will be so crushing... he may lose all faith in future previews...

Nurse: NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Doctor: No...... I’m afraid the only thing we can do is pray that the patient realizes that the hobby is not dead just because the previews didn’t fit his expectations.

It is extremely annoying to be under the impression of reading some "filling"  at the warhammer-community until the big reveal (in 2 days), especially during this not less annoying period of lockdown/confinement ...

Fake news. Nobody loses faith in previews. Disappointing previews simply increase expectations for the next one.

This made my sides hurt loved it. Luckily my expectations may yet be met!! If not this weekend then on the 4th and if not then, then WarhammerFest and if not then!? Who knows but the God-King.

If you like Warhammer weekly with Vince Venturella go and have a look their show where they responded to the announcement of the Old World. Pretty compelling reasons why a new game would need to have new models as that would be only viable business model. Books just don’t justify the expense of a new game.

On the other side, assuming they keep the same model scale, would be interesting to see if there’s any crossover with existing AoS lines. To have a successful launch they would need a decent amount of armies playable from the beginning but FW usually have limited production, being more a niche line of models and games. Mixing with AoS would allow for a minor number of brand new armies, still I would say for a decent start at least 4. We know Kislev is coming and therefore at least Chaos in some form, maybe Warriors of Chaos? Daemons revisited? All bets are up but with so many AoS daemons already available and pretty darn good I think there’s already a good core.

If I have to dream since I doubt AoS will ever have time to produce them, would be good to get all other Chaos Gods gors like the pestigor, etc. Obviously usable in both systems

Imo:

Old World uses round bases on retangular/square inserts.

Give then rules for AoS even if they are not "officially" into the setting.

Would be the best of both Worlds (no pun intended)

I would love this.  I actually have tons of old world stuff, but it's all re-based for AoS.  There's no way I'm re-basing back to squares especially since I love AoS and wouldn't want to lose my ability to play it normally.  

Plus I will 100% buy Kislev (even if I don't like the new Old World game) if they're usable in AoS.

The A Song of Ice and Fire tabletop does the round bases on square trays so well. GW models (even the old ones) just look better on round bases when they have room to breath. Also GW just got rid of square bases, it makes sense to stick to round bases now.

That would be ideal but I’m not sure you would be able to play 100% factions in both games. It would not make any sense from the lore perspective (at least in the Old World) and economically (they want to sell you minies twice).
