    The Rumour Thread

    They have 4 rules writers in each team. If they each do one book every three months they can put out 12 books a year. There are only 4 background writers (I think) who work on both 40k and Aos, so fewer 40k books means more time to do Aos stuff. With something like blades of Khorne which has pretty well established lore I imagine there isn't a huge amount to do. They also don't need to worry about making changes after playtesting. I think we will get the khorne book before Adepticon at the end of March. That would make 4 books in 3 months. A 12 book year is not out of the question: Current 4 + Ko, Slyvaneth, Seraphon, Ironjawz , slaves to Darkness, Slaanesh, Beastclaw / gutbusters and an all new faction. That doesn't sound too bad.

    Yeah, but it was that very impactfulness that meant nothing of substance ever happened until the end times. I always knew on page one of a new gotrek novel, that Thanquol would ALMOST destroy a major city, as GW were going to do another empire army book sooner or later. The possibility space of aos is still the most exciting thing about it. I very much look forward to Josh helping GW do something special with the Free Peoples.

    I take full responsibility for the potential awesomeness of this news.

    Carrion Empire Gone Already?

    According to the recent gw financial report, they have nearly finished upgrading their production facilities. Their plan for 2019 is to upgrade warehouse facilities in Memphis. The limited production of new releases is probably because these changes haven’t come into effect yet.

    Carrion Empire Gone Already?

    It is only out of stock in America. Depending on how well it sold elsewhere they will either decide to do another print run or move some stock from the UK warehouse. Regarding the warscrolls I heard there was a problem which delayed delivery to the states.
  6. So has anyone been reading the aos short stories in white dwarf? I think they are teasers for forbidden Power. In one the Ko enter a hidden cave protected by Slyvaneth. In the other a khorne hero finds a rather interesting sword at the bottom of a pit, which had been protected by stormcast. I think these are the stormvaults. Places hidden throughout the realms (by sigmar?) containing powerful and dangerous treasure. I think this ancient evil, which may be referenced in the February white dwarf story, had been imprisoned in these vaults along with some powerful artefacts. The story of the next expansion could be that the necroquake exposed some of these vaults and there is now a race on to open or destroy these vaults. The board game that just got teased has a big map with a bunch of locations but also some locations marked with kind of star. These are probably the stormvaults. This expansion could include some new spells and artefacts which are more powerful but can have serious negative effects on your army. This whole thing may be leading up to the reveal of a brand new faction. The totally new factions have all been for order so far. (stormcast, fyreslayers, Ko, Deepkin) It would be cool to get a totally new faction for death or destruction.

    I was not being entirely serious. The image is tagged 'simple rogue trader' The recent rogue trader minis embrace the space fantasy aspect of 40k which makes them ideal for AoS conversions. The gsc locus would also make an awesome necromancer etc, etc.

    True, but it it doesn't exactly suggest Stormcast are the least liked faction. It takes a lot of time, money and effort to paint an army up to 2000 points and take it to a tournament. People wouldn't do that if they hated the faction they are using. Anyway, enough off topic. Here is the new free peoples hero. (courtesy of bolter and chainsword)

    Over on Honest wargamer they have been collecting tournament stats for a while. Stormcast is the second most popular army after LON. After them it is a big gap to number 3.

    Don’t worry. The new expansion is called forbidden power. This is not it. It is just a little side project. Forbidden power was only announced a week ago. It will probably come out in March or April.

    The Rumour Thread

    I’m actually interested in both. I’ve already been playing a simplified version of Shadespire with my sons. Either of these would make a pretty good present for them. The name stormvault can’t be a coincidence, can it?I wonder if it has anything at all to do with forbidden power.

    It bothers me that people are so hostile towards anyone who shares rumours. I already said that Ben2 has a pretty good track record over on Dakka. It is fine to be skeptical but don't take out on the people who share stuff. If you only want facts just check the warhammer community site and ignore this thread.

    Ben2 is a dakka member who correctly called Killteam commanders, the new Abaddon and a plastic squig herder box well ahead of time so they are fairly reliable. Still waiting for that killTeam Inquisition expansion though.
  14. Some strange reactions to this. Aos absolutely needs a star faction. Not for any of us, but for someone new to the game. Stormcast look cool, are relatively easy to play, are easy to paint and can be painted any colour. They also don't need that many minis to build an army. My sister got into the hobby because of Stormcast. I also think their lore is cool and actually more interesting than space marines. I think the aesthetic has improved with each of the three additions to the core range. The selection of monstrous mounts adds a lot to the army. As for the future I think white dwarf updates for now is fine. If we get 10 battletomes this year and the same next year, aos will be pretty much up to date. If GW want to start doing a stormhost battletome a year starting in 2021 I am fine with that. I do think doing another stomcast battletome this year would be overkill though. A couple of character minis this year would be fine. A new lord relictor would be welcome for example.

    If I was to guess what warcry is, it would pretty much be description given. We have seen darkoath in the art and Stormcast need their 2019 release so that makes sense. Including Shadespire warbands as easy in would be logical. It all sounds very plausible. In fact so plausible that it is probably just a guess. Also the lore doesn't match what we know. As things stand chaos control 6 of the all gates and order the other two. It is possible they could update the story but the loss of two all gates by chaos would be a very major event. Also linking boards with realmgates sounds strange as the all gates are rediculously huge, not something you would fight a skirmish game either side of. I do expect warcry to be something like this though. Hopefully we will get some actual details at Adepticon.
