I absolutely cannot wait for the Sons lore. An entire range dedicated to Gargants!? A whole Battletome?! Possible Black Library novels!? I'm so ****** excited, hopefully we get another Sons peak this weekend!!

:D 

EDIT : I like your peak vs peek pun.

Haha, "Sons peak" works both ways for me since I want both Sons gargants and more mountain Peak Lumineth news.(Stormcast is a cherry on top)

I really want a world-shaker army of mountain spirits backed up by gargant mercenaries. Bovine brethren & Hysh tremor tyrants that control and move the islands. :D

I'm so confused haha

Just like an over-excited gargant.  xD

(Peak means mountain top. Peek means a look-see)

The garguants won’t be as big as the Imperial knights. The Facebook team said so.

I think they could be as tall as an Imperial Knight, just not as stocky.

The really big guy chasing the Stormcast looks fairly lanky. I get the impression that's the body shape we will see for 'titans'.

 

Also from that article it sounds as if Aleguzzlers will stay as an option for Chaos and Destro, but 'titans' will be for Sons only. Or allies only.

 

As to Stormcast.  I adore them  but for the love of Sigmar I pray that GW GW don't start making individual 'tomes for them.  

 

Much better to expend the resources on other factions, IMO.

Knights are also quite thick and wide, I believe the Sons will be as tall if not taller just not as 'thick'.

I agree I believe the Sons are going to be just as tall just not as stocky. 

I also doubly agree on the Aleguzzlers. I dont mind them being allied with Chaos as well but the new Gargant models should all remain in Destruction and within Sons and some as possible allies to other Destruction Factions.

A lot of the thickness of a knight is the armouring. So I'd wager GW might do the same for the Behemoths. They imght even share the same internal "skeleton" of a core body and then vary based on outer armour and detailing changing their appearance. Much like how a Chaos and Imperial Knight both share the same core body skeleton. 

I wouldn't expect anything bigger than the GW knights that they offer. That's a bout as big as you can go before the price and size become barriers of significant entry.

I‘d like more unique Stormcasts, yet I dislike the Space Marine Release approach.

How about not opening a new chamber but already opened chambers evolving? 
- New dynamic Liberators with heavier armor and Helbards

- Dracoth Knights = Paladins on Dracoths with huge helbards and hammers. Super heavy elite shock cavalry with impact hits and dynamic poses

- A Azyrite chariot. (Ballista or two Paladins on top?)

- Liberator phalanx with a once a game spear throw

- Overall more dynamic Stormcasts and a beta rule which grants all of them +1 hp

- Prosecutors with differing heights, so they can be played while keeping the 1“ cohesion.

- Sigmar 

Love to see all of this happen as long as it's held in the 1 battle tome for Stormcast.

Space Marines have a Codex plus Codex Supplements, unique characters for most chapters, not to mention the more unique chapters (dark angels, blood angels, space wolves) that have their own Codexes. It's insane, especially when you look at how neglected most other factions are in comparison.

https://www.belloflostsouls.net/2020/04/age-of-sigmar-white-dwarf-ossiarch-bonereapers-battalions-spotted.html

Here are the 3 spotted batalions for OBR 

1 super not playable battalion for 4000 points games that includes nighthaunt as allies 

1 battalion offering + 1 to wound for the ghotizar harvester  if you take 2 kavalos death rider units alongside 

And maybe the only one actually playable a battalion allowing you to resurrect 1 model per turn if within 8 inches of vokmortian 

(all of those batalions need to be played in mortis praetorian and need vokmortian in the army as a general (except for the last one)) 

I wish so hard that vokmortian wasn't   the stupidest and most poorly written warscroll of the army.. :(

So more fluffy narrative fun focused armies instead of the crunch the Ossiarchs already flex hard on. Definitely sounds alright to me.

I'd love to play the 4000 point one and recreate a battle in Eight-points from the campaign,  that's narratively a nice touch. Especially since there were people wanting a way to ally the two together after Katakros & the Lady of grief worked together.

The Chaos Knight is a completely different kit, it doesn’t have the same skeleton as the Imperial Knight.

Interesting to see Warcry getting more news and not Underworlds. Will we see an expansion or new Warband?

There isn't really anything to reveal for Underworlds at the moment. The last two Beastgrave warbands would probably have released already if not for the shutdown, and it's too soon to announce the next season which will come out end of September at best. At most they were planning to show a single mini from the next starter, like they did with the lion from Beastgrave last year.

Warcry though, is primed for some kind of announcement. All the warbands/monsters ect that people know about have been released or revealed, as well as cards for pretty much all existing armies. Most likely announcement IMO is either a new Starter Set or a new Monsters and Mercenaries style supplement-there's a lot of factions that now have basic rules but no hero/monster options.

A new Monsters supplement could be incredible. I'd love to see what new Beasts they could come up with.

Not surprised to see nothing for underworlds. It is usually an autumn release.  Looks like they will take another week off after this and then do what would have been Adepticon part 4 in the Warhammer fest slot. 

It is sad but given that the UK lockdown isn't ending anytime soon it is sensible to string this out as long as possible. 

Very curious to see what we might get for Warcry now that all the original warbands have been shown off. I would love to see an underworlds style season two a whole new set of warbands.

Yeah- they are right to save something for May with how the lockdown is going. Its good to have something to look forward to still. 

A second season of Warcry war bands could be very interesting if they explore elements of other factions other than chaos, it would be a good opportunity to add to some factions model line.  I doubt it but you can always hope..

I think if Warcry is going to go on, it's inevitable that they will have to expand the focus from just Chaos and the all points.

As it is, they've pretty much expended the initial concept of doing a warband from every realm.

Untamed Beasts: Ghur

Iron Golems: Chamon

Cypher Lords-Hysh

Face Bucklers-Shyish

Corvus Cabal-Ulgu

Splintered Fang-Gyhran

Scions-Aqshy

Tyrants-All Points

Only realm left out is Azyr, for obvious reasons.

Well warcry could finally go back and actually expand the existing warbands too. I've wanted to see real heroes for the core factions for a while now, something like the mercenaries but specifically tied to the chaos warbands. Maybe some more elite fighters and basic grunts too. A few more options would make list building a lot more interesting and, given the general discrepancies in power level between the chaos bands and the AoS bands, it could go a long way to making the game a little more balanced.

I don't think we will see anything as big as this (just look at those tiny Liberators) but its a good sign (what is the largest kit in the AOS range currently?)

what if those are just trick-or-treaters so only 4' tall kids in costumes rather than 8' tall stormcast

I wonder if then, seeing how things are going, that they will delay the Warhammerfest previews into late May-June? If they go ahead with them at all. With the current climate it would make sense to hold off on announcing too much.

The Stormcast podcast may hold some more info on what would have been released as they're filmed in advance, then madea vailable to sometimes tie in with what's being released. 

For example, the most recent Voxcast has them talking about the new Mechanicus minis as if they were released, including looking at concept art for them.

Yeah I definitely think they will save the warhammerfest reveals. If they break it up like they have done for the adepticon reveals, they could easily ring another months worth of content  out of them  or two if they do a preview every fortnight which should hopefully see us through to the end of the lockdown.
