Hey everyone, This is my first post in this forum I think. I earlier registered here but never visited again after that. But after all the leaks of the GHB2017I thought this might be a good place to discuss this topic, because for me this is very important. I startet playing Ogre Kingdoms with Warhammer Fantasy and was super excited that the Gutbusters found their way to the Age of Sigmar. I got even more excited after the release of the Beastclaw Raiders Book. I read a lot about the lore and found out that sometimes the Beastclaw and Gutbuster tribes meet each other to share their meals together. But after I had seen the leaks of the new GHB2017 I got really sad, because there was nothing in it for a Gutbusters player like me. As GW talked about the new Handbook they said that they wanted to update the factions, which got left behind. I also hoped after I had seen the newest "army books" that I would see a lot of different spells for Destruction wizards. Something like different spells for Butchers, Waaaagh! magic for Weirdnobs etc. After I had seen the leaks about points I think Gutbusters are in a pretty bad state at the moment. Especially because the old "Destruction Allegiance abilites" got nerfed very hard. I can see where these nerfs are coming from. But now as a Gutbusters player I only seem as allies of Beastclaw Raiders. My deepest dream would have come true if they had gotten extra allegiance abilites, spells and command traits. Another thing I have never understood is why Maneaters and Firebellies are seperate factions. I also had hoped that Maneaters would get a price reduction. I would say they are definitely weaker than Ironguts, but cost more. I think they are beautiful miniatures but I can't see them in a game, because they are not worth the price. Why don't summarize them all under "Gutbusters" Allegiance? I had hoped that GW seperated these factions from each other, because they wanted to expand on them later. But at the moment I have the feeling that GW isn't interested in investing in Ogors anymore. I found the idea of an Ogor Alliance extremely unique for a fantasy game. There are no other game systems where Ogres have an own organized faction. This is what made AoS and Warhammer Fantasy unique for me. But at the moment as a Gutbusters player i feel really left behind, especially because I had hoped that in the new GHB2017 there would be some ogor love. Maybe GW is working on a new Gutbusters book right at the moment. But for me it doesn't look that way. What do you think about the state of the Gutbusters?
