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.

I think it's just to represent all 5 gods. You have a red blob, green thing, blue something, pink stuff, and a growth with whiskers.

Guess I'm the only one who feels satisfied. I didn't have high hopes before the show after they showed us battletomes for FEC and Skaven. It already was much. Now it's Khorne. Well, I own a 2k Khorne army so I can't complain. To be honest I'm even happy as so far i restrained myself from buying book always feeling that Khorne has insufficient rules. Maybe now's the time. I'd only preffered new mortal model instead of Skulltaker. 

And I was right saying Khorne and Kharadrons will receive their own Endless spells just not called endless spells. Remember how many of you felt disgusted with that. 

If  Khorne is getting a new battletome then it is safe to say every army is getting one. Wonder if they'll make it by the end of 2019.

I don't care about the warband which is unoriginal (and that is from a guy who's main force is 3k Sylvaneth). 

Chaos seems to get a lot of boxed games. Wonder which armies will be in the box. Maybe StD? 

(The spider-robot chaos 40k thing is my candidate for model of the year)

While I understand the disappointment, it is worth remembering that GW do a lot of previews these days. The next event is in 7 weeks. We have two battletomes tomes coming which aren't even up for preorder yet. Even if blades of Khorne is the only battletome we get before the end of March,  we will still be ahead of the same time last year. 

With the combination of the hint of a slyvaneth battletome from the seminar and the previous rumour of Ko in April, I am inclined to believe that is true. 

The exciting thing about the Khorne reveal is that it opens up all the non magic armies to the possibility of getting endless spell equivalents. 

Then we have warcry. Dave Sanders and Co have made two amazing games with underworlds and Killteam. 

Warcry could be something really special.

I was about to write this but I'll piggyback off you.

There's going to be another AOS battle box this year. Part of me thinks it will be Fyreslayers vs Ironjawz, but it could be related to the new Forbidden Magic later this year. 

Pretty optimistic though overall. They're doing what many and myself hoped they'd do and bring just about every army up to date. That's the best thing they can do to push AOS forward

Also very curious about Warcry. Perhaps Kill Team/Mordheim but with a new twist

Woke up earlier to see the preview before i go to work. I was not dissapointed. 

Yes, we didn't get a lot of actual reveals like new models(except the new WU warband which is amazingly cool) or a new set, but that was to be expected as the event was mostly about the new  Black Legion. I think that everyone who said we should temper our expectations for this event, were right. 

But even so, cool and exciting stuff were teased and i really can't wait to see more of Warcry and the new stormcast thingy - continuation of Soul Wars.

About Warcry, it is obviously the Call of Archaon in game format. The strongest chaos champions travel to Varanspire, Archaon's fortress in the Allpoints to battle and prove who is the strongest and join the Lord of Apocslypse. I cant wait to find more and i hope it is not so Chaos centric as iy sounds. It will have some Darkoath barbarians in it so yeah. 

About the Forbidden Power(the stormcast lock thing), in FB the warcom team replied to people who were angry at more SCE that they didn't announce a new chamber but something else. We will see i guess.

Grand Alliance battletomes might also be a thing, which would be pretty cool.

After preview of the Khorne book, which already is in the new format, it's pretty certain that all of the "1st edition" books will be re-released with endless whatever. 

 

Soulblight looks interesting. Hopefully they'll do some sweet, but not over the top vampires. There is always the potential of them being "Undead marines".

The sylvaneth warband is a sure buy for me. I only have five and need eight for a Saga warband.

I am not sure if covering up Khorne because their release was announce todays means that this was a hint or not. (I kind of hope it is so we get to see a Fyreslayer and Ogor battletome)

I think we are somewhat spoiled...

I mean, the Output and Quality right now is insane. Remember the old WHFB time, it was horrible. 

Now everyone gets just awesome stuff.

Love the sylvaneth warband !

Khorne battletome? Why not! I am Happy for them! Endless Prayers? Really looking good.

The Future really Looks bright.

 

No, i am Not a fanboy... I am just comparing things to older times and i Just see no reason to mock about anything.

Guys, this circular conversation is getting very boring already. It's really not that difficult to have a quick scan over the last page before posting.

Once more for the people in the back:

That image is reused art of the Grand Alliances from the rulebook, there's no reason to think it's representative of what battletomes are coming

That aside...

My expectations from this were fairly low, but I'm still disappointed at some stuff.

I suspected a new campaign was coming, that's cool to see. 

A Khorne battletome is... whatever, I suspect almost everyone is getting one this year so it doesn't really matter the order. But I think having Khorne Endless Spells (or whatever they want to call them) is really lame. Feels like that's purely a business decision, rather than because it makes sense for the game. In general, I'm really not a fan of the trend with AOS Khorne where they just keep giving them more and more clearly magical powers, but give them a different name that makes it okay... just feels really weird to me to take this faction that has maybe the clearest theme in the game, and then keep diluting them with stuff like this. But hey, I'm not a Khorne player - hopefully the people who are are happy.

Warcry has me a little worried. AOS getting a proper skirmish game? Yay! But it's all about Chaos? Oh... I suspect GW's intent is that, by focusing in on one Grand Alliance, the game will be much easier to write and balance - they don't have to dedicate 300 pages just to providing stats and advancement tables for every single thing in AOS. And that totally makes sense, but as someone who doesn't like the aesthetic of AOS Chaos, it feels really exclusionary. Feels like waiting ages to bite into an apple pie, only to find it's actually full of toothpaste...

Really sour reveals for AoS.

 

Forbidden Power: Endless Spells 2, Electric Boogaloo: 17 new ways to deal D3 mortal wounds.

The Khorne 3.0 that nobody asked for, with totally not endless spells.

Sylvaneth warband for WHU looks well sculpted but a bit samey.

War Cry better not mean a discontinuation of WHU. I would assume arena gladiatorial combat between chaos, chaos, chaos and chaos.

I’ll be honest I went to bed a bit nervous about what the reactions to all the over-night reveals would be but have to say I’m not disappointed. 

Grasping at imaginary clues, taking other people’s guesses as set in stone facts and then taking personal offence at them, unmerited anger, grotesque entitlement, passive aggressive despair, Dead Sea level saltiness. It’s been a classic of the genre. 🤪🔨

Anyway Sylvaneth warband look good, lots of battletomes sounds good, possible totally new things sounds good, a campaign would be nice and I think the KT & WH:U team have done a good enough job that Warcry is an insta-buy whether it’s set in the AllPoints or an Azyr McDonald’s franchise.

Also thanks to Black Fortress & that ace Harkan models, those ****** have got me building a Black Legion army now and I don’t even play 40K, so 💯 WANT that goat sorcerer model.

Serious question:

How many people complaining here have been in the hobby for under 5 years?

Anyone remember that claw rumour engine from ages ago? This looks like it on the new 40k boxset. Kind of sad it's not Slaanesh after all.

You know I'm actually pretty glad we're getting updated battletomes for some (if not all) of the old 1.0 battletomes. I get where people are coming from, they've been waiting ages for their factions tome and some of these have already had multiple but it makes sense to pull the errata into it (for convenience but mostly for new players who probably have no idea the errata even exists) and give the rules another look and progress their lore to pull them into line with the 2.0 battletomes with a couple endless spells, terrain piece and maybe a model or two to give people already playing those factions something new to mess with. The way I see it the quicker they get them done and dusted the quicker it opens them up to developing new and batletomeless factions.

I do think it's really hilarious that they're doing 'Vanguard Primaris' with pretty much the same concept as the Stormcast Vanguard Chamber.

Warcry will be set in the allpoints but will almost certainly feature every grand alliance, just like underworlds doesn't only feature death. 

They probably don't want to do another edition of underworlds this year. There is nothing to stop them adding new warbands every now and then. The game is still very popular.Screenshot_2019-02-08-16-08-01.png.900bc5a1f5eb7e208563f5bd957a807f.png

This art suggests we will get some new minis with the game too. I can't place any of them.
