The Kangaroo Archers are stunning. They're simultaneously genius and ridiculous and I spent 5 minutes crylaughing at the fact some poor Aelf gotta line up a shot just to have his big kangaroo jack mate jump 6ft in the air and ruin it.

It looks like it's not hopping, just running like a velociraptor.

I've been working on a spreadsheet for warscrolls, what kit makes them, and the material/age of the kit to try and figure out what armies need updating the most and heres a rough overview of what ive

Am I the only one mad the OBR are getting regular archers? GW had the opportunity to create a unit called Crossbonemen and they didn't take it.

hey don’t be sorry, it’s always helpful when people reveal exactly what kind of person they really are.

LUMINETH REALM LORDS REPRESENTING STRAYA!! 

As an Aussie there is no ****** way I cannot pick up that kit. Strap on some VB cans to these bad boys, get a bloodhound and make one put it in a headlock!!

It has to jump - everywhere.

Give it the fly keyword.

Make it perfect.

On the single rule that slowly but surely every release gives us more and more ridiculous animals for the Lumineth until Tyrion rolls in riding a giant Sloth

Is the box in the background is the same unit? The leg wrinkles/folds look similar...

If Swordmasters are confirmed on the Weekend then I will not be able to resist. Although for financial reasons i will likely have to (until they get a start collecting set).

Already seeing lots of hate posts in the Lumineth FB groups with fans crying and getting furious over the designs of these hybrid Kangaroo/Dinosaur creatures.  It's going to be just like the cow pre release all over again lol  Hopefully it won't be as toxic as last time.   

I just adore the high fantasy design direction for these mounts though,  the aelf over the top extravagant feel literally captures what High Elves and Lumineth have always been about.  I hope the other Wind Temple models are like this in nature too.

I think the Roo riders are the same as the preview mount. The preview one is just the unit champion. 

I dont think so. The armor (on the mount and the rider) are different. Smooth vs. the Elemental temple pattern. And the fur of the mount is more textured on the previewed model.

I don't do AT either, but apparently the thing at the start of the new Years preview was a new Titan for it.

Ah yes silly me, how did I forget that recent teaser ??? Thank you for the reminder ! 

To be frank, there are so many Rumor Engines (and trailers) that could be Death-related that I don't see the release being "only" Vampire or "only" Deadlwalkers / Zombie for AOS (new Battletome(s)).

The different styles hint more, IMO, toward a Warhammer Quest-style game with different kind of Death Creatures, just like Silver Tower and Blackstone had a great variety of Tzeentch and Chaos models.  So we could get a dungeon with Vampires, Skeletons, Zombies, Werevolves, keys, etc.

The few Sigmar-y RE we got earlier could also be the Witch / Vampire Hunters warband. 

BTW what @Chikout said is also more than likely : a boxed game with new or refreshed designs can totally hint at a Battletome coming (just like a WHU Soulblight warband).

Maybe it's just because I'm sick of Malibu Astartes with a new hat all the time but I love them.

The freedom to go wild design wise is such a strength for AoS.

*I know all the endless Marine releases probably fund this freedom

I hope Lumineth players don't take this the wrong way, but the memery is what is winning people over, across various forums I have seen a lot of people liking the the mounted kangaroo hybrid archers and this is the thing that is pushing them to consider buying the army. With each temple Lumineth will have something people like and I think that's the direction GW are going with them.

I mean as a former Dark-elf player from the olden days, is a Kangaroo less sensible than Cold Ones? I am all about exotic cool mounts and I am down for the animistic worship of elements embodied as animal spirits. Also for those that don't like them just kit-bash them with Dawn Riders.

I think my only complaints about Lumineth is his embarrassing attempt at a T-Pose and the fragility of the models... which honestly scares me off of them the most.  

Also I know that Malerion will come and I will want his army more than the others...

Well, I can honestly say I didn't expect the Lumineth to also be responsible for a Warriors of Virtue revival. Not a huge fan of the mount and archer combo. Even if they do run, kangaroo is the first thing that registers for me and the logistics of a hopping mount is odd outside of squigs.

So with this new temple will that have its own battle time, a combined one, or all be in a broken realms book? I like Lumineth but I think I’d focus away from the first wave it’s too plain for me im excited for the air and water temples

As I said I think that one is the unit champion. There are at least two roos in that box and they will likely look diffren.t

So, sounds like it's the Vamps and the Zombies together as a faction.

 

....

Darn.  I wanted an all-vampire-all-the-time faction and a faction of zombies by themselves.

As for what you are seeing!:  Vampire Lord has a shield in a bat-wing shape with a dragon on its front, and a honking huge mace.  Vampire has long red hair that is being held aloft by bats to avoid getting in their eyes.  Reads as female to me, I could be wrong.

Also, those Kangaroo riders may just be the best thing ever.  GW continues to impress.
