Man, if he gets that, maybe with movement 6" as well, he'd be a fairly descent assassin!  Now imagine his spell is some sort of movement buff or teleport...

Maybe a reincarnation mechanic like the fire phoenix. 

Would make a pretty nasty offensive hero on foot.

That could be interesting.  After all, how do you kill a shard of light?  I also think he'll probably have the ethereal rule.

I can honestly envision ethereal or some kind of regeneration sort of thing, where he takes damage but heals it. I’m excited to see it, but I hope I don’t get my hopes too high.

 

also, found this today, thinking it was a really old video. Turns out it is from yesterday, go figure. I am going to build at least two of these things, just for the hell of it

Some people speculate that he'd work similar to the Green Knight/Sacred Protector. Maybe today is the day we'll get some info : ) 

@Thiagoma Thanks for not giving up on asking them about the Lumineth model range on Facebook : ). Their last reply ("we have to wait and see") made me a bit more optimistic that we haven't seen everything yet.

Poke their facebook became a hobby on its own to be honest.

"White Dwarf 454 (the one we’re previewing below) is 160 pages and will go on sale in the last week of June."

 

A bit disappointed by this, but let's see how the situation in the UK develops and if they can safely re-open the factory throughout May, so we get some rules previews soon.

The unreasonable length of the spears and hammer hilts might actually draw me in. And warcry rules is always a good thing!

just looking at the image above i would not be surprised if the spears had a range 3", those things look as large as the stormcast protector glaive if not bigger.

Finally, a spear unit with a sensible spear length. I mean holy ****** compare that with the Freecity spear length and it's night and day!

 

"Dang it! Your spear is too long, I can’t  get my Orks into base to base contact!”

"yup, that's the point!"

The guy at the front middle doesn't look like one of the hammer guys? The haft looks much longer than previously seen pictures and it might just be the picture but he doesn't appear to have a cow motiff on his head

its just the picture angle, if you look closely you can see the horns. still just goes to show how long some of these hafts are.

I know that with this much zoom and pixelation, the eyes should not be trusted. To the left I can identify the lancers, archers and dawnriders. In the background, maybe a spirit of the mountain. But just what is that thing in the front of the battle report picture? There are two bases, the mini in the front does look like Eltharion due to the base and the helmet, but I cannot relate the thing in brown that's behind him with anything we've seen so far. Any help from someone with keener eyes than myself? Any wild guesses?

at the front is eltharion , you can just see the curve of his helmet and the edge of his main sword in the corner of your circle, i am more interested in what looks to be behind him, the weird white triangle esque thing.

It looks like a rider mounted on a horse with his sword up! Maybe a captain or a mounted leader!

It’s funny how much just a couple of blurry images in a white dwarf have gotten me giddy. I want these bros so bad!

Edit: Those weapons are absurdly long! I love it!

you may be right, on closer inspection it does look to be some kind of curved helmet with some pennants in front. I sincerly hope it's a generic combat hero.

I know right, my hype was just starting to run dry but these little glimpes have relit the fire for more lumineth.

You guys are right, I didn't see the shape (or the pennant) before, just the base and a brown-ish blur. Hype revival incoming!

I'm not sure, but my hope is that it is a mounted character. However, the part of it that looks like a sword being raised is actually the right leg of the Alarith mountain spirit character Avelenor far in the background. 

It doesn't really look like anything we have been shown thus far, and it appears to be on a bigger base than Eltharion who I believe to be on a 40mm, so this is likely a 50mm base.

I’m with you on this, the cow helmet is definitely there on the guy in the foreground, but the guy behind him definitely does not have a cow helmet.

 

okay, maybe he does..

As Yuviel said, it’s just the angle and the dark colour of the horns. You can see both the mask in gold and the horns if you look closely. Also if you compare it with the one in the background. 

The weapons are awesome ❤️

Yeah any remaining doubt about these hammer guys has sort of been smashed by this pic. They look quite elfy and just awesome. Mad keen for this army! I really wish they’d release their battle tome as a PDF to have something to read!

Some news about the Lumineth from the new RPG (Soulbound). It's a gorgeous book, check it out. Just a few things about the Lumineth (they are not as such in the book, but there is a bit of information about Hysh, Tyrion and Teclis). Most of it we already knew, but: 

  • Tyrion is indeed blind, and has cloth over his eyes like "blind Eltharion". He has very, very, very shiny armour and an even much shinier sword. 
  • The Hyshian spirits are called Aelementor.  
  • The mountain faction is from Ymetrica, they are the Lumineth best warriors, and fight everywhere in the Mortal Realms.
  • Zaitrec is a nation of very powerful mystics (but also seems to be totally messed up right now). The spell we have seen before is from Zaitrec. 
  • Syar is a nation of artisans. 
  • The Realm-lords are exactly as much lords of the Realm as we thought (as in not really ...). 
  • Magic has really gone wild after the Necroquake. 

So basically the Alarith are the warriors of the Lumineth. That's why we have seen them. The Scinari Cathaller could be a Zaitrec (just my speculation at the moment)
