  1. I started in 2017 with the original AoS starter set. After some experimentation, I settled on my current army( Legion of Azgorh). I was introduced to the game by Total War: Warhammer.
  2. I'm intrigued by the title. "Forbidden Power" implies that whatever is at the core of this is something taboo or profane. There's also fairly obvious Sigmar/Azyr imagery. I'm curious as to what the "Power" is. Is Sigmar growing desperate enough to try and tap into elf souls? Will we see some high ranking Stormcast making a bargain or deal for a power source that can help the good fight, but only bring even more chaos (so hard to use that word in a neutral setting)? If I had to guess, what will happen is that someone on the side of Order is going to try and tap into something. They will seek a weapon, energy source, alliance, etc, to turn the tide. This will fail. The end result will be a new faction led by a notable figure. This could be Slaanesh, something to do with Death or Destruction, or even a malevolent Order faction.
  3. To be fair I'd completely forgotten the FEC battletome.
  4. What are the possibility of "do-over" battletomes? Where they go and rewrite, revise, etc some of the older books and AoS factions that haven't held up as well as newer factions.
  5. What if WH: Underworlds gets a mercenary system akin to Necromunda?
  6. A takeaway from this data is that 2018's battletomes have all been fairly strong, while also being diverse. I'm curious to see what Beasts of Chaos will do to the meta, and I won't doubt that you'll see Beastmen taking top tables at least here and there. It'll also be interesting to see what future armies do. One issue I see is power creep, but seeing armies like Sylvaneth, and even Bonesplitterz to some extent not looking too bad gives me hope that older armies will remain fully playable.
  7. I think a valid argument could be made that three heads was all they could realistically fit. The Archaon model remains one of the most detailed, one could say overwrought, models ever made. It is possible that a fourth head could have been impossible. I do have an alternative take. As shown with the Horned Rat-inspired tail, the head were not the only parts that were capable of being altered. If they wanted to include all the Chaos Gods, why not just adjust the body itself? A Khornate head, Slaaneshi forelimbs, Tzeentchian wings, etc.
  8. Conspiracy theory: Slaanesh indirectly influenced the Grots to become Mushrook addicts to provide extra power to her/him.
  9. Honestly they probably can't say much more because they have to promote the Orks and Beasts of Chaos. Announcing Grots/Slaanesh/Darkoath would only shoot themselves in the foot.
  10. They said it will be part of an upcoming warband.
  11. I love how anatomically ridiculous it is. This is the kind of squigy goodness we need.
  12. Saurus Knights. Troggoths. Centigors. Razorgor Chariot. Blood Knights. Corpse Cart.
  13. I remember this time last year everyone was complaining about the lack of physical releases and how we didn't see many factions being supported. Today we can talk about potential future battletomes and an upcoming Beast of Chaos one. I think any fears of discontinuation for armies are being invalidated.
  14. I wouldn't be surprised if they somehow sneak another release before the end of 2018.
  15. I can see that, it'd be a Warriors of Chaos style battletome and have various rules for each God, rules for playing Undivided, and Darkoath is a pretty nice name for the unified Chaos forces. Of course, the biggest takeaway is the bigger implication of an Aelves and/or Free Cities battletome as well. And if we move further from that, every factions that got a focus is guaranteed to stay and probably get a battletome, like Gutbusters.
