  1. There is a Warhammer Preview in 4 hours there. Nothing said it's a 40k only event IIRC... (There also is a WP at Warhammer World this week-end but it's for the 40k Apocalypse event so I'm less sure for this week end).
  2. So, the last 3 "known" Warcry Warbands are almost here : https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/07/28/coming-soon-warbands-enforcers-and-more/ Can't wait for the Aqshy and Eightpoints ones to be teased !!! We should see Orruk Warclans, Cities of Sigmar and Ogor Mawtribes quite soon, then (assuming WHU : Beastgrave is for this Fall)
  3. I for one am (almost) sure the Tithe of Bones and the Pact-then-Feast of Bones won't have anything in common (apart the use of the term "bone", that is ). - The first one is the next chapter in the Soul Wars narrative, probably a new Death army themed around Skeletons and Bones Constructs (so a reaimagination of a few Deathrattle and Tomb Kings tropes, hence the ziggurat and eastern music from the trailer, and the earlier "TK" rumors from Thomas Lyon). It will be teased by a few videos in the same style as Malign Portents (IMO it's the same graphic artist), Part I : Necropolis being the first one. It will be lead by a huge Skeleton, the Death Entity from Lake Lethis (the one from the Forbidden Power artwork posted here many times, not a character from WFB). It will match a few Rumor Engines we got recently. - The second one will be a boxed set with two armies like Looncurse, Carrion Empire, etc. with the Ogor Tyrant. It will herald the release of the Destruction Battletome : Ogor Mawtribes (soup between Gutbusters and Beastclaw Raiders). It's very probable we should get another "new" army in this set, or at least a new character / kit for an existing AOS 2nd Ed. army.
  4. So yeah interesting-yet-intriguing day. When is the next Preview Seminar ? At least Gencon 2019 is in 10 days, apparently : https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/05/14/a-summer-of-warhamer-eventsgw-homepage-post-3/ (the article doesn't mention a preview seminar, but then for the ATC neither and yet we got a Warcry war band revealed there.....)
  5. Yes, I mean : nothing from the Old World that I know of either in TK or VC lore looks like this giant Skeleton-with-runes that is so powerful even Sigmar is afraid of seeing escape his prison from the Age of Myth (this fluff comes from Forbidden Power, it's an interesting book really). EDIT : a larger view of the monster in question. See how big and skeleton-y it is !
  6. Guys... "The Tithe Part I : Necropolis" is - as stated in the article - about the big Death Entity (who speaks in the trailer) from Forbidden Power, the one that...
  7. What connection do you get between the Feasts of Bone (coming, apparently, after the broken "Pact of Bones"), and the follow up of Forbidden Power, "the Tithe Part I : Necropolis ?" But the use of the word "bone" I see none... IMO one is a tease of the new Ogors Battletome or a boxed set (which still left the opponent unknown - if it's not Death than it's probably Seraphon), and the other is the next narrative chapter of AOS coupled with a new Death army lead by that big monster : Also this may be a representation of the Everwinter (with MAWS in it) coming to a city, probably the Ogors Battletome cover
  8. I fear the Warcry video is the Cypher Lords "How to Paint" video... (as the other two war bands released today got theirs). But yeah I'd really like to see a reveal for the Spire Tyrants (if only to calm the STD crowds - inc. myself - a bit !)
  9. If the Ogors also get a tome soon-ish*, we only have four Battletomes left (Seraphon, Tzeentch, Kharadron Overlords and of course Slaves To Darkness) to have an up to date AOS 2nd edition range of armies ! It's kinda great. Then can Hysh Aelves, Wanderers from Beastgrave, new Death, and hopefully new AOSified Humans come out ! (without forgetting to mention GROTBAG SCUTTLERS). *Feast of Bones makes me thing of a boxed set like Blightwar or Wrath & Excess, tho... Who could make a good opponent ? New Death ? Seraphon big dinosaur ?
  10. RE : Cities of Sigmar tome... They could very well expand common, AOS humans later with, for example, Devoted of Sigmar (if they aren't in the book, that is !) - just like Nighthaunts followed Legions Of Nagash pretty closely !! EDIT : And how about GW release some CITIES OF SIGMAR scenery that aren't ruins ???
  11. Well the Cities of Sigmar is interesting but kinda not what I wanted for common, Order humans in the Mortal Realms... At least it's the SoW : Firestorm book updated (by Josh Reynolds yeah ) - I'm really eager to read it for the good fluff and world building, even if I wanted more than the adapted paint schemes (new proper AOS models like the Excelsior Warpriest from WHQ Silver Tower or AT LEAST plastic City-themed upgrade sprues)... The Orruk book was to be expected (but I would like to have the Greenskinz Boar riders in it...)... STRANGE DAY
  12. All are lovely but I'd say : God-tier (all really close) : Iron Golem > Unmade > Cypher Lord Great-tier : Untamed Beasts > Corvus Cabal > Splintered Fangs I'll still get 'em all...
  13. Truly amazing ! Looking forward for the Preorders Preview, and what else the Warcry IP has in store for us..!
  14. They are wonderful. Remind me of the Persian "Grenades Wizards" from 300 a bit. Yeah I love all the warbands, the Shysh and Hysh ones probably the most... Bravo GW 😍 Also, it's apparently only the first wave of Warcry warbands...
  15. Yeah ! Or it could be the equivalent of the other warbands' "Chaos Creatures" (i.e. : the Ogor and Duardin for the IG, the Hound for the UB, the Aelf and the Serpents swarm for the SF).
  16. I would say the "veins" on the wood part look closer to the ones on the Ogors weapons than the Ironjaw's ... But really could be both.
  17. Agreed. They should only keep the Sphinx dual kit, the Tomb Guard and the Sand Snakes dual kit. The rest was really too old, but properly AOSified I can really see the old concepts of big constructs shines (like the Morghasts or the Moratchs' Mounts).
  18. The construct theme seems logical indeed. That's not something Death has at the moment, it fits the artwork of the Death Entity of Forbidden power (giant skeleton) and other things like the Morghasts or the Total War ship constructs we've being seeing the last few years, Maybe if we see a Katophrane aspect like shade glass construct
  19. Thank you ! (So not a studio publication).
  20. (Off topic, but can you tell us which novel that was, please ? Because it looks too close to the general misconception people made when Soul Wars came out. even if as JR said here, authors sometimes get told the wrong names.) And I was only responding to your quote saying : "Anything mentioned in Lore or in artwork is NEVER confirmed models EVER", which is quite an exaggeration Anyway, what you say about the relation between authors and models designers just prove further that we should talk about the fluff and artworks as it may contains different kind of hints. Once more, we are guessing and reasoning about rumors in the rumors thread. As you say, everybody should remains cautious about that, and there is no absolute truth in the rumor business until releases. Yet it's interesting and sometimes helpful to discuss about possibilities based on educated guesses, which is quite different as baseless speculations, as the Spirit Torments, Penumbral Engine, Kharadron Overlords, etc.etc. proved already.
  21. And yet, we had TONS of hints in fluff and artworks about new releases, months, sometimes YEARS in advance (see the first AOS core book and the Kharadron, for example). Of course, one mention here and there doesn't mean anything. But when we don't have other rumors, it's interesting to screen the current fluff to search for hints And I really believe you can discover patterns and repetitions, and sometimes explicitly clear announcements in the fluff, like the Malign Portents stories that straight out described the Nighthaunt soul stealers models.
  22. Yeah, sorry if I wasn't clear : GS et DoS may be coming sometimes and surely AFTER StD. Wanderer and Seraphon may be getting the BT + scenery + spells treatment. And what I meant is that I disagree with you about your interpretation of that specific paragraph, that's all. IMO the paragraph you quoted is very benign in comparison with the numerous hints in Malign Portents, the Core Book, Malign Sorcery, Hedonites of Slaanesh and other recent Battletomes, and more importantly, the rest of the FB book. Tyrion and Teclis, or Devoted of Sigmar, get longer screen time, and certain units too. The Gordrakk paragraph mentions his "wars to come" and even give us a new, specific unit description (the battering ram), I mean it's more hint-y than "and then the Seraphon defended a ziggurat", which just give us several reason to have different armies fighting over the Stormvaults. Other things to take into account is the repetitions of mentions, like that "Necromancers flesh palanquin" that was also in Malign Portent short stories (those stories that also contained the first mention of the penumbral engines that ended up getting a model). It's like the union of the Collegiate Arcane, Eldtrich Council and Swifthawk Agents in Malign Sorcery ; those factions were not updated, even with a paragraph looking like the one you quoted...
  23. As discussed, the whole book contains hints you didn't mentioned, about Devoted Of Sigmar, Gordrakk, Light Aeves, Grotbag Scuttler, Ironweld Arsenal, Necromancer on Flesh Palanquin (who also where in a malign portents short story), etc. - given other recent AOS publications, those are more likely to get releases than Wanderer and Seraphon, Chaos Tribesmen being Slaves To Darkness so post-Warcry goodies.
  24. She is most probably a Wanderer aelf. The covers of many a BL book got characters from the lore (like a female Scourge privateer, many Free people Nobles, etc.), without hinting at new releases - yeah, we got Gotrek and the Warqueen as already out when the novella where released.
