  1. I think its because they were going to originally make each clan their own sub-army in full with their own book etc... So shifting from a unit name that denotes it as just a unit type and instead makes it an acolyte, thus sounding far more important and as part of a specific clan I think was part of giving each clan its own unique identity. A globadier could be from any clan, but a Skyre Acolyte is only from one clan.
  2. Yes its time to talk about free stuff, in particular free stories about the Mortal Realms and indeed all worlds of GW as published by the Black Library. I hope we can make this thread into a good archive which can list out all the free short stories and references that appear through the various GW websites and publications. The idea being so that new people can jump right into some lore and tales without having to hunt around. It should go without saying, but I'll say it, this is only to show LEGAL free releases. Anyone caught posting links to websites distributing material illegally will suffer the consequences! Please use this thread to talk about the stories; those you like and love; when new things get published and I can add them to the list and more. The more we chat and interact the more this will stay up and active and the more we can share and enjoy stories of the Mortal Realms. Plus, if that wasn't enough, I'm also going to list fanfiction sources too! So perhaps you've a favourite fanfic; or perhaps you've written your own. Again this is a place to share the links to them for all to read. Official Free Stories: Age of Sigmar Malign Portents website - contains all the short stories released in relation to the Malign Portents event. Loads of stories about many of the races of the Mortal Realms. So no matter who you are a fan of, chances are there's a story or two for you in here! https://malignportents.com/stories/ 40K Psychic Awakening - the current 40K campaign set after the most recent Black Crusade and its fallout. https://www.warhammer-community.com/psychic-awakening/
  3. Don't forget AoS had a very different design at launch. Many of the forces we now see might have been armies designed and planned for way back then. However GW held them back and adjusted their plans. Perhaps armies like Luminoth are getting more than they were once going to get. I'm surprised GW didn't keep the high elf stuff out there, rename it luminoth and then replace/update the sculpts. That said it might be that when Cities of Sigmar was designed it "saved" a block of concepts within the lore and within the game and GW decided to keep it going.
  4. Reminder because it seems GW forgot its Black Library Week! You can now get the first of the daily new short stories - this one featuring the mysterious Idoneth https://www.blacklibrary.com/prod-home/black-library-celebration/the-harrowing-deep-eshort-2020.html Or you can sign up for the whole set from the week here https://www.blacklibrary.com/prod-home/black-library-celebration/black-library-celebration-eshort-subscription-2020.html
  5. In fairness Eshin was never designed to be an army of its own but more the assassins' wing of the faction. So they'd nearly always been a supporting or scouting role rather than fielding large armies of diverse units. That was down to the bigger clans like Moulder and Skyre etc... Though I do agree the Eshin models we do have need an update.
  6. I just want them to hurry up and give the Ossiarchs those living dragon bone construct mounts that they had in Ghoulslayer!
  7. Gotrek is rather random at present and without any focus. One moment he's in depression, the next he's running after his axe, then he wants to kill all the gods, then he wants to find Felix. His axe tends to dominate more so, whilst his desire to hunt for Felix flits from yes to no as he battles with the fact that he wants things from the past, but at the same time fears for what might have changed. Killing the gods is more revenge for the fact he blames them for all the ills and wrongs in his life at present (which to be fair is basically true).; plus he remembers some from before they were gods. I think we won't see Felix, if we do don't forget he might have been reforged enough times to forget he was ever Felix. Malaneth is proving really popular and I think its also a really nice way to change the dynamic between Gotrek and his companion. Instead of one questioning if he wants or should keep going with an insane dwarf; we've one debating on the best way to try and get him killed - whilst at the same time sometimes not wanting to get him killed.
  8. Many thanks @alghero81! I've now updated things adding in the newest books and also note that we've got Lady of Sorrows coming up soon and also next week is Black Library week with a slew of short stories appearing as well as a collected short story book free for those who make orders on the event day at the end of the week. Keep an eye out too as there's also loads of exclusive stuff going on and some old reprints to get your hands on https://www.warhammer-community.com/2020/02/05/what-you-can-get-at-the-black-library-celebrationgw-homepage-post-3fw-homepage-post-3/
  9. Updated with the new Heroes of the Empire book. I've also added the The Adventures of Florin and Lorenzo as a story collection so this just moved those included stories up from "stand alone" to the series listing. Also in May "Elves" by Graham McNeill is coming with 3 stories and 3 short stories. I'm assuming this will include his two novels "Sons of Ellyrion and Defenders of Ulthuan", though I'm not sure what the other contents might be.
  10. Malaneth has also risen in the Gotrek stories and it seems she'll be there for the long haul - perhaps even as long as Felix was in the Old World. Of course the dynamic between her and Gotrek is very different, especially as she has conflicts within herself as her attitude toward him and her own ideas of self preservation and advancement.
  11. You're just mad its not DoK Who hopefully are next!
  12. GW only has a limited range of push-fit models - which is why they get rolled out a lot for those sidegames. The pushfit are basically aimed at allowing GW to have easy assemble and quick assemble models for side-games not targeted at wargamers and hobbyists. The sort of person that buys them might never apply any paint to them nor clean off mouldlines or even use glue. They will clip them out; push them together and play. It's why the 40K version of one game has easy assemble marines and then no ork models. Of course GW gets away with it because its not a wargamer market they are going for with those products; its boardgames, families e tc....
