  1. Notice the trend that collected books that had a) the largest number of miniatures and b) which were the most generic in their diversity are those product lines that retained their metal and finecast models. These would include Legions of Nagash, Beasts of Chaos and Skaven. If I were a betting man, these are the armies that I trust least to retain their current shape when they are next updated. That is, my money is on these armies having a 2-3 year lifespan before they'll experience major changes. I suspect current stock levels had a lot to do with the shape of these factions. They will certainly not look the same with their next update.
  2. So, lets get this straight: We have a non-western predominantly bone-based army with necromantic constructs and skeletal catapults, who have a robust culture of honor (bone tithe contracts for example) and vaguely Egyptian imagery (hieroglyphics and cartouches [which are distinctly Egyptian I might add]) mixed with other eurasian cultural elements (but not enough that it can be tied to any one culture in our world, something that make it immanently IP-protectable), and are lead by an ego-manical leader who won't even deign to fight the peasants unless they prove themselves worthy...and you don't see any remagined, AOS-ified TK in that? At all?
  3. Correct. When I say TK is coming, in no way am I claiming that they will use a single old model. In fact, I would bet against them using any old models. But what is coming will be what TK reimagined in the mortal realms will look like.
  4. Well, it sounds like you're in for a pleasant surprise.
  5. We'll see if you're still saying this in 3 months 😉
  6. We certainly don't know if the chart is accurate. That said, there will likely be unit differentiation based on weapon loadouts, so those 3 kits could easily generate 10+ unique data sheets.
  7. Either. I do not believe KO have new battleline.
  8. I don't know anything for certain on this, but it doesn't look like we've been given any additional battleline.
  9. Nope. I generally report what I know. Sorry I don't have more for all the other armies.
  10. And, to be clear, the points don’t reflect the forthcoming GHB.
  11. People who know people who know people. I haven't directly seen anything. I likewise asked about Nighthaunt but they had no info for me (other than genric "points decreases").
  12. Yep. Their points are going down almost across the board in the new GHB, including 40 point drops for the larger vessels, Khemist down 20, Skywardens back down 20, Thunderers down 10, as well as other similar tweaks. They should be very playable moving foward. More significantly, I had previously said they were coming this Spring with Sylvaneth - I clearly got my wires crossed on which duardin were being refreshed this Spring (given the Fyreslayer tome). KO book is 6-9 months I would guess. Other significant news includes the three new command generic command abilities include reroll 1s to hit, reroll 1s to wound, and reroll 1s to save. Sounds like we'll all be capped at only 1 additional command point (purchasable for 50 points in matched play). Dok took a hit, but it wasn't tragic (Hags at 90, etc.). Interestingly, alot more points adjustments by 10s instead of 20s (eels up 10, etc). That's all I have right now.
  13. Honestly no idea how the pieces fit together. If they are aligned with Nagash, it wouldn't surprise me (this is speculation) if they bundle it as Nulahmia, under Nefrata's control. If they did this, the aesthetic is already present and she would have the lore of Death constructs given her past. This doesn't seem like a far reach. Alternatively, they could do something completely new with either Katophranes, or historical TK.
