  1. It's funny you mention that because the only model they did release, the Excelsior Warpriest, was inexplicably banished from matched play. It's a shame too, it was a cool new sculpt aesthetic.
  2. I agree with the above suggestion for Psychic Awakening - updating all armies a little bit is healthier for the game than overhauling each in a long chain. As well - I suspect we'll see some lateral movements within Stormcast Eternals - namely the splintering of a Stormhost into their own Battletome ala Dark Angels/Blood Angels/Space Wolves/etc. It makes sense given the trajectory of focus being heaped upon the golden boys, and GW can't possibly push a unified tome much farther without it being a total soupstorm. If we see a standalone Battletome with exclusive units for say, Hallowed Knights or something, I wouldn't be surprised. Overall though, I hope we don't get pushed into AoS 3.0 right now, because the game is the healthiest it's ever been. Maybe V2 codexes like Chaos Space Marines got for Legion of Nagash, Nurgle, etc.
  3. I actually feel like LoN is the one that needs the update. Fixing the Nighthaunt abuses in that tome would make it easier to give Nighthaunt appropriate point values.
  4. Legion of Grief would like a word with you. Any army that can resurrect a unit of 30 Bladegheists for 1 CP is doing just fine...
  5. Very cool idea. I'll give some recommendations based on my armies: Seraphon: Bastiladon - While not as iconic or essential as the slann, is sums up the army quite nicely: dinos riding dinos shooting laser beams. It has a really distinctive shape and style, with the turtle shell, howdah riders, and artillery piece to boot. Runner Up: Carnosaur. Disciples of Tzeentch: Lord of Change - The greater daemons really do sum up their alignment well, and the Lord of Change is an embodiment of Tzeentch's terrifying magical prowess. Runner Up - Gaunt Summoner.
  6. I agree with a few previous comments, a lot of these names written feel like they weren't spoken out loud before writing. How many times have we seen Kharadron Overlords spelled wrong before? Khadaron, Kharadon, etc. I event had to look at the webstore to remember how it was spelled out. Or I could just use KO.
  7. I'd love a plastic Curseling, but we need a plastic Fatemaster first - that model is absolutely ancient. I would love to see the Fatemaster get updated to be a model worth taking and synergize with whatever comes out of this book along with the Ogroid, Kairic Acolytes, etc.
  8. I've definitely started to curb any non-required spending. I never buy brushes, glue, etc from GW anymore, there's no reason to really anyways. For my lists, I am way more prone to sell off non-essentials, like units that rarely see the table, units I would have normally only held for sentimental value. Now my Warhammer budget is now like 60% resell, 40% new cash, where I only fuel new purchases by selling off old gear. I'm also finding that I will skip Specialist Games that interest me. The fact that it now costs an additional ~$100 CAD to get into Ossiarch in the Book and Terrain are causing me to probably skip picking up any new AoS armies. Overall I still love the hobby, but the pricing is putting up a new lens for what I really need in order to play.
  9. Oh - I definitely think we're getting a Beasts of Chaos battleforce. It's one of the only factions that never got a dual or battleforce since released, has new relevance with the Shadespire warband... and the Jabberslythe just got an updated round on the webstore. So it could look like this: Beasts of Chaos Jabberslythe - $90 Great Bray-Shaman - $20 Dragon Ogres- $70 Bullgors - $56.50 Ungors - $35 Total: 271.50 > 200 (Saving ~$70)
  10. Yeah this is where I land on the Tomb King successors as well. There's a gem of cool inside the Bonereapers that I find appealing - a bone construct army with east asian design influences SHOULD be a buy for me, but I think the designs got turned up to 15 instead of 11 and it just feels messy.
  11. Thought a bit more about this - and aside from the entirey of Kislev, I think a few choice selections from Dogs of War could be a ton of fun. Lumpin Croop's Fighting ****** & the Halfling Hotpot This would sell like Mootcakes. Being able to build a halfling Cities of Sigmar army would be so much fun for people. Long Drong's Slayer Pirates
  12. What's this prediction based off of? What's an Astrolithic Skyshrine? 🤔
  13. Hammerhal Centrepiece Model: Freeguild General on Griffon Flavour Unit 1: Steamtank Flavour Unit 2: Helstorm Rocket Battery Hero: Freeguild General Battleline Unit: Greatswords x10 Battleline Unit: Handgunners x10 That Battleforce would scoop up my dollars immediately ❤️
  14. This is my main gripe with WHU - you get a warscroll to use in AoS but there's no value in doing it. The end result is an unusable complicated warscroll that basically means you didnt get a warscroll in the first place. Using a new WHU warband to update a specific kit would be a huge win.
