  1. Nice! Sounds like fun releases ahead! The preorders are up and Skaeths Wild Hunt and other war bands are up apparently.. Technically the Kurnothi get a release!
  2. I always think Underworlds are great for alternative sculpts for armies and nice to buy into if you don't want a full army but want something new to paint or try out. These are all probably alt sculpts/experiments which are part of the design process but don't, for whatever reason, make it into full releases- I think its great we can get our paws on them. I think 40k misses out by not having something similar. The second box- I like it actually because for me the problem with starter sets is what of you don't like either faction? With new sets released across the year you can find one that suits you better. As long as the war bands don't get stuck in a box and come out separately I think its fine.
  3. Well they do seem to like their boxed sets - seems similar to how they are doing KillTeam- gives more playing content I guess 🤷‍♂️. Pirate ogor on the way by the looks of it. Sad those rumours excluded any dwarfs but you can't have everything. Eshin assassins would be cool an I'm guessing Order of Sigmar/Witchhunters as one [maybe the one after pirates].
  4. Yeah I think she looks awesome but I'd prefer hair.. not a fan of bald vamps [of either sex!] Looking forward to the big preview! Hope they show some cool new stuff. Beyond the remaining kits for Stormcast we don't have much of a clue what is coming so should be exciting!
  5. So are we hoping for a new model Monday pic today? Maybe a teaser for Warcry or something from the next Underworlds war band for this season? I think those are the only things coming up before Christmas which are unknown at this stage [Templars are fully revealed as are the next Killteam models]. Maybe a surprise of some sort? [Hopefully someone short with a beard, armour and a big axe...]😇
  6. Looks interesting- lots of mentions of dwarf holds everywhere, night and forest goblins mentioned and clearly a Tomb Kings icon at the bottom of the map [scarab and sunrays]. Good setting for a mixture of factions , although I do have concerns the focus seems to be mostly human factions so far- Kislev, Cathay, Empire, Brets and mostly the Boarder Princes..
  7. I think its more to do with the with Dwarfs reuniting to reclaim their kingdoms, but the return of Grungni could push the Chorfs to be more active and aggressive, Belakors fluff mentioned him knowing that some would be interested in the return of their old foe.
  8. Wow cool!! Really hope so for combined dwarfs [as long as we get some new dwarf sculpts - I love the current Ironbreakers and hammerer sets but we could do with some AoS dwarfs] Summer of Duardin! I'm all in! Hoping for Squats to return in 40k as well and then the circle will be complete.... Yeah I could see Fyreslayers getting a model or two in a box and then appear in a combined tome. Whitefang suggested new things for Slayers but he also heavily suggested a combined dwarf book. The two aren't mutually exclusive and I'm fairly sure I remember him saying just because factions share a book doesn't mean they can't get a new model or two.
  9. I like your reasoning and I’d especially love dwarfs to be up soon but I’m not so sure. There are dwarf looking things in the rumour engines but I think they are more like Squats, unless the Grungni faction have a more futuristic feel. I think Sylvaneth could be higher as one if the themes of 3rd is Spring has come and life is unleashed. Plus the Kurnothi have been sitting there as a perfect expansion for them. Dawnbringers, Sylvaneth and Dwarfs would be my first 3 Order picks as fluff wise they are set up. i think Chorfs will come but not as a full faction until later in the edition, maybe appearing as a war band or underworlds set. But generally- no idea what’s coming ! I don’t expect any surprises before Christmas the way things are going. But open to being surprised!
  10. Maybe connected to the images of the undead character sitting on a throne [the leaning on a sword/holding a skull hand] Maybe FEC?
  11. Yeah I thought that too as nothing in the trailer pointed to grots. I mean who is the narrator? Could be a spider themed war band like the Corvus one or could be spider mutants..I'd find the spider mutants more interesting. Will there be other war bands though and will it still centre on chaos? I like that it explores a the wider setting I just hope there might be other factions represented in some way.
  12. The only thing that says to me it might not be spiderfang was the female voice over - sounded a lot more elfy- spider rather than gobbos or chorfs.. , more Morathi agents/drow ? I do like the idea of a spiderfang infestation in the 8 points though .. and Duardin rangers …
  13. Not vampire spiders? (The blood and fang mentions too obvious?) But spider fang would fit onto the destruction theme of AoS 3. I’m guessing the rumour engine pic of a net is for them then.. Hope we get a road map of the new warbands soon..
  14. Yeah I hope the Warcry warbands aren't just chaos- its a great opportunity to add extra depth to the factions. But those Khornegor certainly bring back memories .. be great to see them as full units in AoS/TOW.
  15. One thing I also noticed from the Cathay trailer- there where a few chaos forces I didn't recognise - the winged beastial creatures [furies?] and the beastial creatures with glowing claws [didn't look like daemonettes]. The "credible rumour drop" mentioned new Deamons coming- could these be a sneak peek at new undivided deamons? I'm not up on Chaos forces so just wondering..
  16. Yeah it looks like TOW will be amazing! Especially if they apply this design approach to the older armies and factions..
  17. Wow Grand Cathay looks awesome! Love the bat winged air cav and the balloons [always thinking of those KO crossovers!!].
  18. Could be .. it did strike me as aelf but the arguments for Warcry are possible too, I think there was an icon on the last Warcry map that had blood drop in it so possible.. Edit: so there are a number of symbols on the Catacombs map- Crossed pole arms with a blood drop [Soulblight?], Anvil and Hammer with iron halo [Chaos dwarfs], Skaven Symbol, Skull and blades [looks very Kruelboyz], a Chain, A scorpion, possibly on a web, A Statue with a crown in a chaos star, a Spiral in a star/halo and a great axe on a shield. Hopefully we'll get a sense of what they are doing with Warcry soon -possibly a new series of war bands?
  19. Yeah Thats exactly what I thought - plus the vent from the backpack. Looks like the middle one is Black Templar. Not sure on the left one- maybe another Sister from the Killteam set [rumoured to be a new squad type..]. Those leaks are looking pretty strong. Interested to see what comes for Warcry- wasn't there a map for the last release? I remember it having an icon of an Anvil and Chain - I hoped for Dwarfs - it could be Chaos Dwarfs ? Wonder what else we will see- hope there are some good hints if not full reveals of what is coming. No offence to their fans but I'd love to see something else than Stormcast and Kruelboyz.. [order dwarfs/Kurnothi/Nids/Squats would be perfect, if unlikely].
  20. I'm really keen to see how GW redesign them-they've done some cracking new dwarf sculpts recently - the KO range, love the Fyreslayer Underworlds set, Gotrek, Bugmansson and Dagnai are all fantastic. So the prospect of new AOS duardin and squats is pretty exciting. I'm even intrigued as to how cool they could make the Chaos Dwarfs as well ..
  21. Ah mate come on- yes this is the rumour thread but there is a hell of a lot of speculation and wish listing going on [all part of the fun -I do it myself]. What you heard sounds interesting. I was looking at the unsolved rumour engines and there is the scarred horse leg and was wondering in StD might get an update- multi pose kits to go with the start collecting that was released [last year?]. So your dragon fits with that and I think Warcom hinted at more dragons appearing in the realms as well. Cheers for sharing [if you hear anything Dwarf related I'd be thrilled ... 😉]
  22. Yeah its pretty amazing looking forward as a dwarf fan- particularly looking forward to Squats [the moment I saw KO I knew that GW could make awesome Squat models] as well as new Grungni Duardin NO!! Don't you dare take them away from me! Plus there is room for all!! [But seriously rumours wise squats seem to be coming and not massively in the distance]. At last! The true order has been returned!
  23. YES!! They are coming!!! [plus KO crossovers... the joy!!!!]
