I think slaanesh will be mixed up in the new AOS expansion, if we look in the top 5 thing to look out for this year GW notes new endless spells, slaanesh and the expansion. I suspect we will get a tease of slaanesh around valentine's day, GW won't miss that. They even used it to reveal Morathi.

True, after all my valentines day will probably be spent painting the daemonnetes from wrath and rapture...

But i also wouldn't mind it being used to tease soulblight with a lahmian vamp sculpt or even old issy von carstein herself! Doubtful but they've surprised us before.

Agreed! Plus the fact they aren't spells does also herald them expanding into the non-magic armies like BCR. Which, also given the affirment that even more battletomes are coming, means a good chance BCR or Gutbusters will get an update!

That skull looks like the most fragile model imaginable though! xD

It would be cool for BCR to get an endless spell type model for that endless blizzard thing in their lore

Boring lol. I think this has been one of the most boring shows ever and disappointing. More Stormcast I knew would come. Khorne gets stuff when it doesn’t need it. I have a sinking feeling about aos future.

it was probably more for 40k this time around, which was to be expected given the fact that March was teased to be something big happening with the countdown and all

I suppose one good thing is all old factions getting stuff this year is confirmed. That means KO will get stuff too but what. That’s the only thing I’m interested in.

Gotta say, I really dislike their use of that "battletomes for every grand-alliance"-picture. Unless they're really planning on releasing SCE, fyreslayers, soulblight, gutbusters/bcr and whatever that chaos mess is supposed to be. Not saying it's impossible to get all those factions but if one of those factions shown doesn't get new btome, it's almost akin to false advertisement. Still, my hope for future fyreslayer tome is still strong.

 But if they rewrote that book, it's pretty much a confirmation that we'll see a new version of all the AoS 1 books before the end of the year.

Woah guys let's temper expectations here. They did not say everyone was getting a battletome this year! 

What they said:
-----------
 2019 will see new battletomes for every Grand Alliance! Some brand-new armies will be joining the fray, as well as classic armies updated for the new edition.
---------

We already have 4 battletomes we know of. Beyond that. the only thing this confirms is at least something for Order and 1 brand new army (Could be 1 in the same). Will we get some other refreshes. sure. very likely. But every faction is a lot of tomes and they by no means hinted or suggested this.

The pictures are generic ones from homepage don’t take any stock in them except the new chaos one. The death and destruction "new" armies are quite unknown. Though if I were a gambling man grotbags.

ahh misread that. Back to being disappointed.

That would be a representation of Chaos Undevided since all 4 chaos gods are represented in it.

I don't think this image is anything to go by they're just reused assets, you can find them in the core rulebook.

I wonder if the "something ancient and terrible" has something to do with Tomb Kings

I suspect it's a Chamber of all the Stormcast who have reforged so many times that they are mad. Probably been locked away for generations.

 

Also, IF (!) the images are anything to go by, note the Doom Diver in the Destruction image ...

Yup I think those sort of people are the perfect warriors to face off against slaanesh. Oh yeah and our bondage dude is from the warcry trailer he looks to be darkoath actually.

Still I am wondering who is the dude in the banner? The third one, do you think it relates to warcry? Maybe they might hint towards slaanesh then?

Its from the Warcry trailer.  Looks like Darkoath will feature is this skirmish game.

WOOOOW I am super duper surprised at how lackluster the studio preview was. I really was not expecting that. I mean it's all great stuff, but its mostly teasers and mostly stuff that doesn't really make me super excited.

I'm shocked at GW's treatment of Slaanesh .. just continually ignored. Every chaos god got their due with awesome new tomes and models. Last two January's were dedicated to a chaos god. Slaanesh's turn comes around and .. NOPE. Ok, ok, maybe its a little delayed ... here it comes annnnnnnnnnnd KHORNE gets their third tome!!!! LOL. Anyway, something is coming for Slaanesh .. at some point .. but its hilarious how she always gets the short stick.

The Underworlds warband is cute. I don't really play much but I'm sure someone is excited. The models are good but they do a really poor job of translating their warbands into playable AoS stuff. I appreciate all the gorgeous sculpts that have come from it though.  

Then we get two previews of something or other .. who knows. We get an announcement that there will be an announcement! 

Darkoath is getting delayed ... really thought we were going to hear something about that.

Looks like the new endless spells were a clever way to milk new book releases. Hey I'm not complaining - it was kind of sad whenever 40k got new Codex that was nothing but 0-1 models and a slight rule update, but factions like Skaven and FEC are going to be revolutionized by new books... throwing in new spells and terrain just sweetens the deal.  Also they have been doing a great job with the new endless spell rules lately.

Then we get 40k. I've actually been super into 40k lately so  I was hoping for some serious releases. I was thinking a mind blowing Sisters preview and some insane Slaanesh Chaos guys to go with the new Noise Marine. Instead they are releasing their obligatory new Space Marine models lol. The Chaos stuff looks fun but its a little silly how much is looks like Dark Vengeance.

They look like the same set lol. The Dark vengeance guys were super detailed sculpts though so, i guess its all good. Also its cool that CSM are getting STORMFIENDS!!!! 

LVOStudioPreview-Feb7-Oblit28hvhwhgvjsd.jpg99120206017_SkavenStormfiends03.jpg

Then there is one kind of odd Sisters model. If this is their big highlight, it makes me worry how cool the release will actually be.

Anyway, Skaven and FEC are two of my largest collections, and I am working on like 50 GSC infantry and 3 GSC tanks, plus I ordered a bunch of the new GSC chars, so I'm pretty much full up for the year starting next week. Can't wait for the FEC spells preview tomorrow!!!!

Warcry looks very Chaos centric. I'm not getting my hopes up that this is the Skirmish game we all want.

It would be fantastic if these images have some merit as to specific armies getting updated. Though I think I must have initially misinterpreted as each grand alliance getting a new "Grand Alliance" Battletome.

I think they will be more stormcast now. They will probably come in a order vs death box, new chamber vs new death faction.  This is just a theory , I could be wrong.

The only other thing I can think of, is a new book with new endless spells.

No, they said on facebook it represents the alliances. It's the same images they use on the AOS website save the chaos picture.

Good but not very exiting for me. Happy for all Khorne players... and probably all Sylvaneth players who wants their faction in underworld. Other then that I feel that KO will not see any updates this year (except ghb19)*sad face*.

I wonder if the Chaos picture is a hint to a Daemons battletome ala 40k. Right now furies, Daemon Princes, Soul Grinders and Belakor kind of lack a home.

The new Slyvaneth are gorgeous and really make me hope for an update for them with more revenant like models. It's says magic is a focus for them but only one of them (not even the leader) looks like a wizard so I wonder if they are moving in the direction of unit based wizards for Slyvaneth?

The rest is... disappointing. Whilst the new khorne will help in my meta given the sheer number of khorne players, I don't really feel like they were a priority to update and shows GWs overfocus on certain factions. That said, I'm hoping it's a case of 'the other factions were updating are getting models too so this is just a release to get you by'.

As others have said, I hate the "here's the name of a new game" thing they do. A name like warcry is so horribly generic and all they have shown so far is that it looks to be chaos focused which makes it hard to get excited as an order player.

As for the Stormvaults I'm really, really hoping it's a case of something breaking out of the vaults or, given the focus on clockwork in the trailer, the release of a cogwork army that sigmar was holding back on. The latter has been hinted at already and given that the main focus now is on souls, what better to bring to a fight than a souless army that can die without powering up your foe.

Given that the new chaos space marine war machine makes it easier to summon daemons, and the new wizard is focused on possession, I think there is a very real chance for a daemon focus at some point this year.

I'm more thinking about AoS. Right now playing daemons in 40k means that you have a mixed army usually, but once you play AoS, it becomes a hassle.

I wonder if the "Forbidden power" has anything to do with the chronomatic cogs, could also have something to do what the events that happened during of the dread Solstice campaign.  

Such as, Sigmar learning all of the arcane secrets or learning how to harness the time storms.

Ah sorry, I wasn't clear enough. I mean because daemons are a cross system faction, and there seems to be a focus on then in the new csm release, I can see that spilling over into AoS as it allows them to double down on one release. As such, they may create a daemon army, even if it only allows undivided daemons and just expand that range etc

A grotbags release soon after gloomspite would be a longshot to me.
