The big advantage of Endless spells for GW: it is addressed to ALL the player base!!! Meaning all present and futur  players will "NEED" it.

Well done GW B|

BTW, do we see in those new chaos miniatures some indications for the upcoming StD/Everchosen/Darkoath release?

From what I heard people who went to the conference saying, it sounds like Warcry is all STD/Darkoath is getting for a while.

In fairness, once all 6 warbands are out, it's actually going to be  a huge range of models dedicated to Chaos Barbarians. There's a lot of other factions getting the book+spells treatment now that would kill to be the continuing focus of an entire skirmish game release.

The endless spell/terrain fiesta is starting to feel like a result of it being easier to manufacture those items. I like endless spells and I’m pretty much over it. 

They are easier to produce and are produced overseas so GW can produce more by just hiring a new factory for them, rather than having to invest in their main site which has more limited resources. It's a neat way to give each army their own spells and some new models even if they aren't warriors. 

 

Lets face it if you play a dozen armies it will feel like overkill; but anyone with only one or two or three armies will be happy when another one of their armies gets their spells and terrain. Plus its GW cementing them as a firm features of AoS. This gives it some identity

It's because they design and manufacture those as terrain, which is manufactured in China. So it doesn't eat into their model production.

Considering that it has been said that the Chaos warbands will all have AoS rules, it really does feel like a dual release.

Based on past experiences with Underworlds warbands getting rules for AOS... I wouldn't get your hopes up.

Looks like Sylvaneth will be getting some new minis. I am pretty sure this solves two rumour engine pictures.C758C92A-8290-4E19-B913-70161BC09A95.png.404e8c9bfd87d7031341b265b8faa765.png

Here are the rumour engine pics for comparison.

It makes you wonder what other new kits might be in the box.

Was 2019 supposed to be a year focused on 40k? It's rounding out to look like another banner year for AOS

If the warbands were monoposed I would agree, but from what I have seen it looks like they are multipose. Add that to the other comment (which I am having trouble finding a source at the moment) that this was meant to scratch the Darkoath itch and I stand by my reaction.

The difference with the Underworlds AoS connection is that the Underworlds warbands were mostly character versions of units we have seen before. These Warcry warbands are more of a blank slate, which makes them perfect to be repackaged as unit boxes when an updated Chaos Mortals tome comes out.

I don’t recall anything about 40k taking precedence this year. Mostly focus has been on sisters of battle coming later this year, and Abbadon’s return but nothing real major for 40k outside I think fine tuning the early 8th Ed books up to par with the rest of the game.

The fact that they're not mono posed, is increasing my hope that the rules will have bit of crunch and war band building rules will actually have a cost for equipment. I'm curious how well supported non-chaos stuff will be. It certainly doesn't sound like the non-chaos stuff will be getting their own models. Maybe it'll be like how gene stealer cults and chaos cults got necromunda rules, but instead of waiting on a white dwarf, they'll be release those rules from the start, but the main focus of the game will still be on the chaos "gangs". I'm still getting a mostly "fantasy necormunda" vibe from this, and while I'd rather have Mordheim reborn, I'll still take this over the current "skirmish" garbage we have now.

2019 is very much a year of AoS. GW has completed all of the current armies for 40K in terms of giving them a Codex update, the only outstanding is Sisters of Battle. Other than that the game is up to date and they are now at a stage where they are polishing, updating, adding, improving to the game. Such as the recent chaos update which updated a swathe of very old model sculpts and added some new ones to the army. 

It's a very heartening update because it shows that GW will continue to do big army updates even after the Codex are released. My hope is that the next "big" update is one for Eldar as they sorely need some new plastics. 

 

As for AoS GW already confirmed every faction was getting new Battletomes this year and we've already had Gloomspite, Skaven, Flesh Eaters, Khorne and now Fyreslayers and Slaanesh. And we are only at the end of March. I'd wager April will be dominated by Slaanesh and Fyreslayers. Fyreslayres is clearly a 1 week release, Slaanesh could be a one or two depending how they want to play it, but unless they pull something else out of the hat (more models) then I'd say its a good solid single week.

TBH, as we will have many things for AoS in 2019 (including new armies like slanesh or StD (well, probably half new) ) I don't see GW neglecting their biggest cash cow: 40K !!

For me, this pretty much points out to a completly new army entry for 40K in addition to Primaris 2.0 (or badly named SM 2.0 ).

The new adepticon teaser shows the upcoming AoS things, meaning we will have them first/soon . Fireslayer BT then Slanesh. But they have to release something for 40K to alternate the releases AoS / 40K. Then later, new BT (updated ones) + StD/Darkoath. Then sisters.

Although it feels like an AOS year 40k has probably had more new minis so far. AOS has had gloomspite and two extra minis. 40k have had big releases for gsc, chaos and primaris. The Khorne and Slaanesh minis are deamon  only (so far) which can be used in both games. 

I think the future could look something like this:

chaos

specialist games 

fyreslayers

blackstone

slaanesh

looncurse/ underworlds 

apocalypse

forbidden power

primaris

Warcry

This would take us up to about the end of July. This leaves room for another surprise or two for both systems alongside a presumably massive sisters release.

That Fyreslayer wall endless spell is literally just the Prismatic Palisade with some runes on top.

True, but I like to think that the giant magma golem makes up for that fact.

I really hope warcry is sooner than looncurse. I am bursting with excitement for that game, and I have tax returns coming like Gandalf and the Rohirim soon.

I’ve been Reading these pages since the previews dropped. I don’t het te probleem with the terrain pieces. It’s terrain, it’s niet meant to represent something that aan army always carries around. It’s a way to theme your table to fit your army. 

I was most happy to read that warcry is a way to expand the chaos esthetic and explore other themes and looks. Looping forward to the other warbands. Small bands like these are a geest way to paint something different without buying a new army.

I’m a big Slaanesh fan ever since cult of pleasure in 6th ed. The new models fit in with the other daemonettes, Which i never really liked (especially the faces and feet). I’ll always prefer the ‘Diaz sculpts. So allthough they seem like great sculpts they’re not for me. Except the herald, he is fantastic and I hope we Will see mortal slaanesh followers with a similar look somewhere down the line.

Looncurse sounds like something they are doing as a mini event using Facebook. 

As for the reveals, I've been able to finally catch up on them all and I think they all look ace. I want a Slaanesh and Fyreslayer army now as I think both would be cool and fun to paint.

That fire lizard thing is pretty nice, I really wish it was a new unit instead of an endless spell. Maybe at the very least they'll be like the Khorne ones that can't be denied or dispelled and the casting player gets to always control them. Maybe the new book will even include more prayers and stuff for Fyreslayers so both Khorne and Dwarfs will be top tier magic armies.

Overall a lot of great stuff for AOS to be excited about.

However, I'll join the chorus that Fyreslayers needed a new kit. I can't imagine expanding my Fyreslayers as there just isn't enough troop variety. My collection will stay at "allies levels". Definitely surprised that GW seemes to consider Fyreslayers to be a complete faction.

Considering that deep pockets, short arms could be both a literal and metaphorical description of Duardin, I think the thrifty reusing of an existing model is pretty thematic really.
