    Anyone knows the result of blightwar when Neave tried to assassinate Horticulus? Didn't buy the boxset and can not find information of the event anywhere else, but I heard Neave failed?

    Who is this mysterious SCE on poster?

    The problem is it seems this guy is challenging a Mortarch Surely Gw won't put a simple butchering of SCE on the poster or will they?

    Who is this mysterious SCE on poster?

    Ah, forgive my English, it is a bit embarrassing when I finally realized the inappropriate use of the word, thank you for the remind, edited. True, in that case it is very likely the Celestant-Prime, but notice if he is the C-P, on that position there should not be the robes but some kinds of leather belt instead But considering the art works they have done for the Celestant-Prime, this image is quite different and remember nowadays GW asks artists to draw the picture based on the model, so usually the detail of art will be very similar to the model

    No, settrus is a lord-celestant, Hamilcar is a lord castellant but later becomes a knight qusetor, you must have mistaken them Plus, to me the helmet is quite different from the picture...

    Who is this mysterious SCE on poster?

    Notice the chestplate, to me it looks more like the beast-head pattern armor on normal L-C
  6. Saw this picture as 'cover for forbidden power' in rumour thread, can not find this picture at any other places so can not prove it to be true, but if it's true then this picture will be quite interesting. On the right side, it's Lady Olynder, the new Mortarch of Nagash, and on the left, it is clear a SCE Oh I know many people will think it is just Celestant-Prime in AOH colour since it looks like that guy is flying and Celestant-Prime may be the only SCE who can duel a Mortarch. However, hey, something is not right... please pay attention the to pattern of the crest, the kneelpad and waistband, on this picture the mysterious figure looks quite different from C-P One more important thing is the light Yes, every time when the C-P appears, he always brings his big shining wings, but on this picture, the back of that figure looks quite dark. Can it just be a Lord-Celestant? Well, lorewise Lady Olynder can easily destroy a normal L-C plus the figure looks not like L-C So here comes the question: Who is this mysterious poster boy with armour of AOH and mighty enough to duel a Mortarch? Does this mean SCE will get a new kind of lord unit or even better, a special character model for Stormhost AOH? If so, what such character can be? Lesser Celestant-Prime? Or finally Sigmar chose a Lord-Commander for SCE?

    There are some hints in the novels regarding to how Mortarchs, Arkhan at least, their souls were imprisoned together with Nagash and when Nagash was freed these souls were also recreated into being. However 3 Mortarchs changed subtly on different levels: it seems that Arkhan totally forgot about the past, Manfred still remembered other Carsteins but couldn't figure out details, while Neferata still remembered Lahmia and want to build it anew. Considering there are several examples how some old characters survived end times and entered Mortal Realms, so it is very likely that some Vampires, may, survive. However, there is not any clear connection between Vhodrai and Old World vampires. Although there is no direct explanation how the curse of vampire continued in Mortal Realms, in core book 2.0 there is a clear hint that nowadays curse of vampire originates from curse in WTW. If you want, why not. I mean it is totally possible to survive End Times, though aeons of time may cause some changes on your characters like losing memory, etc. On twitter David Guymer explained that all souls, including those died in ET, came to the realm of death. However, considering only the strongest souls can survive aeons of time, so my opinion on this one is normal undead creatures were created from fresh dead thing in Mortal Realms, while some powerful beings may be recreated by Nagash using souls form WTW.

    The Rumour Thread

    Wait, is that Celestant-Prime in AOH armour color vs Lady Olynder? That will be an interesting duel since Lady Olynder may be the weakest Mortarch, who was nearly destroyed by a bloodthirster, while we all know CP is the strongest Mary Sue with THE HAMMER in AOS and I really want Celestant-Prime to smite that vicious dead traitor scum severely. To be honest, Nagash should learn to choose some better and more reliable undead-thing as Mortarch. AND, hey, if there will be more lore about AOH, that will mean we are more likely to get old heroes back as SCE....

    Yeah, desperately looking forward to the AOS RPG set , many things wait to be explained like the connection between Vault Celestial and Highheim. Although at this stage it seems the corebook will focus more on Aqshy...

    Thanks for correction, good to know that. But if Sigmaron is on the moon above Mallus and Sigmarabulum then that will be quite different from the description in Soul Wars.

    No, it takes days to travel from Sigmaron to Sigmarabulum by aircraft This city is Sigmaron, while the star-ring at up right is Sigmarabulum

    Certainly, but in 40k it is rare to see canon conflicts in the same one book, and usually it's more like various descriptions of the same event from different angles.

    Another question is the location of Anvil of Apotheosis In the new battletome of SCE. page 4 and several other places, it says that the Anvil of Apotheosis is in Sigmaron, the city beneath Mallus However, it is in the same battletome several places say that the Anvil of Apotheosi is in Sigmarabulum, the palace-city and star-ring around Mallus: And if you have read Soul Wars written by adorable JR, in the novel it also shows that the Anvil is at Sigmarabulum not Sigmaron Although it certainly makes more sense that the Anvil is at Sigmarabulum, these conflicts do brew serious canon confusion

    I'm talking about the betrayal in the age of chaos, and it only makes sense that Nagash only betrayed once before age of sigmar otherwise Sigmar would be an ultimate fool Let me explain: In AOS 2.0 Core Book, page 37, it says it is the Battle of Allpoint during which Nagash betrayed Sigmar and let his undead force attack upon livings, and it is at Allpoint Sigmar abandoned his people and invaded Shyish to bring retribution upon Nagash. Moreover, it says the Battle of Burning Skies is after the disaster of Allpoint. However, on page 39, it says that the Allpoint disaster is after the Burning Skies It also says Nagash did come to help Sigmar, regardless Sigmar himself might just try to destroy Nagash Now the conflicts come, in battletome of Legion of Nagash, it says it was at Burning Skies when Nagash betrayed Sigmar and after the Burning Skies Sigmar invaded Shyish In battetome of Nighthaunt, it says Nagash didn't come to Burning Skies at all In the new battletome of SCE, however, it says after the Burning Skies Sigmar just sealed the gate of Azyr and no more battles happened In the relatively early battletome of Everchosen, the events timeline showed that the Burning Skies was after Allpoint There are more such conflicts scattered throughout Realmgate War series and the events timeline in several battletomes, you can easily figure them out with a little bit of attention As a result, the sequence of events becomes a complete mess, no more readers can figure out when Nagash truly betrayed Sigmar and which of the Burning Skies and Allpoint happened first.
