  1. Seems to me that lots of people are more attached to their chapter than space marines in general. Also the conflict between chapters is fundamental to the Horus heresy which is the biggest (and most commercially successful) single bit of 40k lore as well as lots of the smaller plot lines, so it only seems natural for AOS to adapt ideas from SM chapters. That said, Aos already has more Order factions than 40k imperial ones so there are already more ways to have civil wars and defections to chaos etc. I think the success of Nighthaunt and LON with the whole malign portents storyline does show GW that there is room for more than Stormcast on the front page/poster. Hopefully they will build on that success. For me I would love to see a chaos civilisation fleshed out a bit more. Cities based around science and industry worshipping tzeentch and khorne. Maybe they've been flooded with refugees from Sigmars conquests of chaos held territory, that kind of thing.
  2. Between skryre and gloomspite it seems pretty clear now why GW didn't feel like they needed to nerf LON or DOK in the faq. Lord of change or slann now very sad that rats and goblins are more powerful than they are 😢

    AoS 2 - Dispossessed Discussion

    I'm also hoping for some pretty awesome dwarf-bots, vengeful ancestor spirit powered golems would fit the bill nicely. Valaya would be interesting and creates a very natural space for some female duardin characters which I would like to see. But still..... Golems and massive adapted mining machinery to burrow up and crush enemies into pulp for me please. I like your idea linking duardin constructs with the forging/reforing process via Grugni. If that was the case then a sneaky dispossessed release would kind of fit in as part of the soul wars storyline. They are the classic enemies of the Gobbos who just got re-released and Skaven who are hotly tipped for the same treatment, so it would kind of make sense to see a Dispossessed release from that point of view too........ Nah I'm just gettingover-excited. Anyway I still need to get enough regular bearded dudes painted by the time anything comes out whenever that might be.

    Favourite AoS/ Warmmer Lore Tidbits.

    Hi first time posting on TGA. I haven't read much black library (most of my Aos lore comes via 2+ tough on YouTube) so I could have missed something entirely... .. but it seems to me there is a lot of space to expand on how chaos worshipping societies work. In terms of settled chaos societies in the world that was you had norsca, chaos dwarves and skaven (the last two not worshipping the big 4 though). The main beastmen and chaos warriors just seemed to roam around killing stuff cause they are evil etc. In Aos there is so much more room. Like how is a khorne worshipping city meant to work? There is a lot of detail about the path of skulls but what about your average guy who isn't really that into it and just goes to Khorne church for Christmas and Easter? Is a khorne city just like a free guild city but everyone loves going to gladiator arenas or getting into drunk brawls? Do they have any kind of civilian government? If everything is just a mass slaughter fest 24/7 then what do they eat? Going back to the main thread of the topic I guess what I'm saying is I really like the tidbits about normal life in the mortal realms,most of which seems to from an Order perspective. Like the guy from the malign portents story who was just a bitter angry old guardsman or how the stormcast at the start of soul wars loves apples because he associates apples with being in a home he can no longer remember.
