  1. Seriously. Its like clockwork someone makes this thread. Rumor thread is a hodgepodge of discussion, speculation and of course rumors. If you have a burning desire to know about the rumors, just poke the thread. People will tell you xD.

    Bring on the buff warrior grandmas. Cool sculpt, fine with the occasional stormcast hero release and she's a great model. aaaaand of course a destruction army is base terrain. As is tradition lol

    Adepticon Predictions

    I don't think will see Slaneesh yet. We're right on the heels of a huge chaos release in 40k. I dont think they'd also do Slaneesh right now as, as that is a bit much for people to buy. My votes on, if we do see an army update in models, something brand new or unrelated to chaos.

    Adepticon Predictions

    Considering the massive Chaos space marine push atm I wouldn't expect much, honestly, in the way of models. What we know so far is that Sisters of Battle probobly will be a 40k focus. More "from the workshop" stuff. I *think* 40k codex are up too date? So book wise that shifts the focus wholly onto AoS. I'd have to imagine 40k in general will be fairly quite... So AoS, what i'm expecting: -Battletomes. 2 more reveals, and my money is even on 3! I'm betting they'll all be order. Seraphon, KO, and Sylvaneth. Destruction will, of course, get nudged out again likely getting some token release later in the year. Endless spells/whatever KO get to go along with it. Tzeentch is a good pick too, but talk about fricken chaos overload if true. -Underworld Warbands, whatever factions they may be. - Discussion, probobly on community, of what exactly Warcry is. - First real meat to set the stage for Forbidden Power happening for the summer. We know there is a new faction coming to AoS sometime this year... but so close on the heels of this massive 40k release I find it hard to imagine there'd be even more kits coming up. And setting any hope for Destruction ANYTHING to maximum salt, so literally a token line in someone else's battletome will be a pleasant surprise. lol

    Less a new announcement, But i'd adore some kind of rumor or teaser to chew on Bit sparse on those atm, since the forbidden power one didn't give much of anything! Other then a rush of adrenaline for Tomb Kings Anonymous

    AoS 2 - Gutbusters Discussion

    Anyone have any tips or tricks for spicing up Ogor pants? Painting my lot up and decided on blues and reds, but they seem a tad plain! Skin I plan to do a few tattoos, or at least try too. But Im at a bit of a loss for the britches. Don't really like the old style of pin stripes. Bit too old world for me!

    100% agree. Those yeti are one of the ugliest models that GW has ever put out, on top of being resin. When measured up to other allegiance abilities the Everwinter table is not only bad, but horribly boring. Really doesn't translate the theme to the tabletop like Blood tithe, the cycle of corruption, ect. I think what I want to see most is a change to dirty snowball. Its not Op, but it just feels awful to play against. Would much prefer it to me something that deals with hordes then a massive snipe. Also, perhaps, the option to make them *slightly* less elite. 4-5 models is a bit too elite for me, and primarily why I swapped over to guts. Also, give Guts Allegiance abilities already. They are one of the few factions that literally have nothing. No lore, No Allegiance ability. Least they can do is throw them a bone lol.

    AoS 2 - Beastclaw Raiders Discussion

    Skaven, Flesheater, and Khorne all really came out of nowhere. So I wouldn't lose hope entirely. From what I heard from the forums and online the Beastclaw sets sold fairly well, so I imagine they are on a whiteboard to do list somewhere lol. Enjoy the hobby side of it!

    AoS 2 - Beastclaw Raiders Discussion

    Not a peep as I'm aware. There are a few fractured rumors floating around that Gutbusters might see an update in the near future, but I doubt it! As far as concrete rumors, Ogor's in general are quite absent. Edit: On the merge note, this is super unlikely. So far the factions have stayed very true to the new groupings on the getting started and store page and Gutbusters + Beastclaw are very much their own thing. Besides that merging would leave them with next to no allied options.

    Big rumors atm are that KO, Syl, and Fireslayers are on the docket for updated battletomes. Of course, Flesheater Courts, and skaven were an un-predicted release, same with Khorne. It's really anyones guess whats coming... but considering Chaos got two battletomes so far, and Death is now up to date, Order is definitely on the menu. As is destruction, as the faction in general has been languishing lately.

    Feel we need to see the next battletome teasers if they are keeping up to the schedule. Probably some kind of sisters update for 40k. Though I imagine it'd be 40k light after Shadowspear. My personal guess for battletomes, prob KO and Sylv. As much as I'd love Ogors, I really doubt it's in the cards lol

    The Rumour Thread

    Don't know what I managed to do to spawn 4 posts, but ok then lol. Agreed. Nothing i've found or read supports the idea will be getting more factions. Community has even reaffirmed multiple times that this will being delving into chaos in new and interesting ways. Everything else is just wishlisting at this point. Can't say im interested at all in Warcry anymore. I'm sick of the boxed games, and this just turned into another one. it seems.

    The Rumour Thread

    Fair. I'm sure there will be some very creative sculpts, and takes on the forces of chaos that will only flesh out the world more. But there's just no getting around the Chaos only thing for me. One of the biggest problems I have with AoS is that, still, everything feels so laser focused on Chaos and Stormcast. Of course, that is warhammer... no issue with it being a huge focus, but im still waiting for my factions to even get a mention in story content. Now this thing I was looking forward to comes around, and the parts of the world I want to see fleshed out arn't even invited to the table. lol. Sure it'll be great, but for the moment all I feel over this release is sour. Can't get over the design choice lol.
