  1. Regarding the price increases. I'm never going to be in favor and I do think it's a bit of a slap in the face given the record profits GW have been posting... That said I think it is more an issue for hard-core existing players than new guys. The price increases are small for people who might buy a box or two, paint them and then pick up another couple of boxes. It's the existing fans who are likely to plan a 2k army and buy it day one. Anyway glad to see the gargants coming at long last. Shame that Behemat himself got cucked by the Celestant prime but got to sell those golden boys I guess.
  2. I sold my battletome, but I'm sure she is described as female when Teclis goes to the moon. Maybe I'm being assumptive based on the face though? Someone with the book can probably chip in and confirm.
  3. Hey... I've been right about more than I've been wrong about I'd say. One day I'll live that down.
  4. Volturnos has a deep mare called Ursall which is both named and female. Teclis has a cat which is both named and female. I think this is a very reductive test, just like the original Bechdel test. A character being named doesn't really mean much. With a few exceptions, like Archaon or Teclis, named characters are no more lore significant than any generic character with your own fluff. Furthermore, there are loads of characters featured or mentioned in battletomes or black library that don't have models. For instance in the Idoneth battletome there is a legendary Akhelian Queen. Regardless, I'm sure in 10 years time we will have loads of female characters. We will probably even have a transgender space marine by then too.

  6. LRL, IDK and DoK are all too fiddly to be considered as suitable for starter armies. It's not just the case of making etb units for the box set itself, but rather needing the existing range to be accessible to a new player who expands on their starter set. However, elves are evidently extremely successful in driving fantasy sales. At least GWs desire to release multiple new elf factions in the last 5 years indicates that. This leads me to believe the long anticipated Malerion elves are going to be in the starter for the next edition and feature a more new player friendly design of large elite dragon themed units. I also suspect we will see new paints to assist in achieving smokey shadow effects without the need for advanced techniques.
  7. WHU Direchasm Slaanesh vs Lumineth Skinks and pals OBR Soulblight IDK Bonesplitterz New stormcast This is my prediction. I'm also going to go out and say AoS 3 will feature dragon elves as a new launch army for starter sets.
  8. Didn't he turn out to be secret mathlann during the end times? Cool art anyway.
  9. I don't think they match. The beastman claw looks wider and thinner, plus the rumour claw looks to have segmented armour moving away from the claw itself whereas the the beastman claw seems to go into a more "human" write and arm. The angle of the joint in the crab claw versus beastman claw also seems different. Lastly, I don't think it would make sense for the slaanesh claw to feature barnacles. There is close to 100% chance of a Deepkin band for Underworlds, basically any newish army that hasn't featured yet has to be high on that list. I am just hopeful we get something more than that.
  10. Yeah it would be a DoK battletome otherwise. I'm guessing Idoneth are in there as they don't have their own god so makes sense for them not to headline their own book. The rules content in these books tends to vary a lot from totally useless to new meta, so will have to see. Fingers crossed for one new idoneth model too.
  11. Does anyone who watched the stream know if they explained what's going on with the Idoneth fighting the Daughters?

  13. Hi, this unit has been moved to legends. That means it's only legal in matched play with your opponents consent.
  14. I was playing on TTS so it was a bit different. Hard to move the big blobs of little models while still being precise to get as many into combat as possible. Overall I enjoyed it though. Very different experience to playing my deepkin, but felt like a very balanced army. You can compete in every phase of the game which is nice. Even Teclis couldn't guarantee his magic.
  15. Ah doh! There are so many tables in the book, I got a bit mixed up. Luckily it didn't impact anything as I failed his spell and he didn't unbind anything. Thanks for clearing up though.
