Is the common consensus that the Orruks are getting some kind of Warcry warband due to that one Kruelboy vulture model that hasn't been accounted for?

I don’t think so now, most people though he belong to the underworld warband until Harrowdeep was fully reveal. Warcry warband often time are unique miniatures like the shadowstalker who are part DoK but still way different then most of the range.

I have a feeling he maybe an exclusive event model

Pretty sure ES are done in that sense, they were marketed as being part of the Necroquake fallout, which Teclis has since sorted out. I think that was sort of short hand for "less random magic now".

Also they were marketed initially as "cinematic representations" at the start of AOS 2.0 and I think envisioned as the next big thing by GW. But clearly it hasn't had the take up they were expecting. 

It's true, that was their moment in the sun. They're still around in the background but they're not the focus.

Regardless of how much they were taken up by the fanbase, it's probably also worth noting that they (along with terrain) were part of GW's experiment with manufacturing in China for cost reasons and to keep up a pace of some miniatures getting released with every new/updated tome. Given what the last year and a half have been like, that whole project might be dead.

Last Season of Underworlds was released in December so I could see it happening again!!

Maaaate I'd love for it to be true but I'll try and temper my expectations and expect a December release.

My only concern is what would this proposed Chaos Scorpion God be the deity of? We already have two different gods of poison (Spider God and Nagendra of the Splintered Fang), maybe it's a corrupted death god who kills grave robbers whose followers hate anything related to Nagash (especially OBR for obvious reasons).

They also could be a stratified cult whose magic users are these dried up-looking priests. Lich-like. Poor dudes should have worn sunscreen!

Back to rumours please. Nothing is deleted. All is good 😉

Does anybody know if there are any other big gaming conventions or events coming up? Just wondering if GW will be doing any more seminars between now and end of the year?

Realistically I feel like we pretty much know 40k up until Jan. AoS should get Maggotkin of Nurgle before the end of the year. For specialist games it's going to be Harrowdeep and the Kill Team box.

I wouldn't expect any big preview until their Christmas announcements, but hopefully a proper reveal for what Nurgle is getting.

They also haven’t done a preview show since the Warhammer+ Preview show in July? I believe.

also we are assuming it’s Nurgle as that the one that make sense in our head but it can be any chaos army atm.

I think Skaven, Beasts and Nurgle are the most likely, though.

Nurgle makes the most sense because it would probably be just a battletome update and one new kit or something.

Beasts is second place because they also desparately need an update, but probably a more substantial one with new kits. However, there I believe the guys at WarOfSigmar have been claiming beasts are coming soon.

For Skaven, we have this tiny littly shred of a rumour in the form of that one japanese store apparently clearing out Stormcast, Orruk, Skaven and Cities battletomes from their inventory.

The other chaos tomes are all less likely to be refreshed so soon.

I suppose Khorne is a dark horse contender because they usually get an early battletome. But Tzeentch and Slaanesh only just had their tomes updated, and Slaves just got that patch in White Dwarf, which probably rules them out, too.
