Its only proper than a faction that as the Medusa has a central part of his theme, has a Greek vibe going on.

So, when I saw in january's WD that one of the new four warlords for the legend of four warlords series, had chosen daughters of Khaine as his army, I thought it was an interesting choice... Guess we have the reason now

From War of Sigmar who kindly took a screenshot of what I'm talking about:



Top left figure is a classic Daemonette with crab claw. The ones I'm talking about are the ones to the right.

Nah. Witch Elves and Daemonettes are facing each other, rather than being a progression.

The Witch Elves clearly face the Mantisnettes. I'm not seeing a transformation, but that these two fight each other seems pretty clear.

My problem is more that these look distinct from Daemonettes with a classic one even pictured. Might we be looking at a new version of Daemonette to save us from the horrible current plastics without actually discontinuing them?

I think you are reading to much in a extremely simplified representation of daemonettes in the classic greek ceramic style.

Move over TS, greek inspired shadow elves I am in.

Hope they keep something of the greek theme in the actual models. I already liked "classic-era" feel of the old warhammer high elves.

Pretty much this, people are readying waaaay too much into it. People think they are going to do new daemonettes when we already got plastic ones? Diaz's in my opinion are not lore friendly at all while the new ones are closer to their realm of chaos look.

That said, Greco-Shadow Elves is potentially the coolest thing I've heard of to happen to AOS. Helps that Bloodwrack Medusa is also one of my favorite of the last batch of DE from The World That Was. And props to people pointing out the Classical influences that were already happening in the DE line, embarrassingly I never caught on to that

There seem to be a lot of medusae hanging around that cauldron of blood and elsewhere throughout the animation.

Could it be possible we might see a half-new release like we saw with sylvaneth with more snake people?

As beloved as Diaz Daemonettes may be to many, they're in no way classic. I'm talking about, really, any other Daemonette. The current plastics, the 1st ed models they are based on, even the gigantic claw 2nd ed ones.

Just to say, I'm not reading anything into anything. There's a classic Daemonette depicted on the roof. That's a fact. There are more figures on Slaanesh's side that share some but not all anatomical marks of the Daemonette. That's a fact. Either both of these depictions are simplified, or neither. There is no qualitative difference along the scrolling drawing other that that figures filled in over time. But once they're done, they are all up to the same standard.

When I'm daydreaming about a new Daemonette-like unit, I don't mean as a replacement to the plastic kit. Did you pay attention to the Custodes release? GW took Custodians, gave them skirts and BOOM! New unit. Slaanesh's model line is mostly complete, and as GW has shown with several Chaos forces now, they are all too willing to add new units to fill out mono-god rosters.

You should get that cough looked at. Sounds nasty.

I'm not saying I'd kill for a Greek theme, but I think the best thing about the mortal Slaanesh horsey riders were the helmets, and not just because they conceal their ugly mugs. I wouldn't mind getting more of that. Slaanesh, elves, makes no difference to me.

Love the Diaz models but in my mind they are all daemonettes now - just different facets of the same thing - deamonettes are often described as having flowing, shifting forms form beautiful to horrrific and back

I am in agreement, after painting an army of them I really like the models.

Well, you're not the only one. Here's another weirdo just like you.

Ok, not like you at all because I just don't like the overall Diaz design, but I do acknowledge that given the limitations of two part metal models they do have some things going for them the current plastics fail to achieve, like a sense of motion and a playfulness that fits Slaanesh.

Mmm, it's always good to see the Diaz girls again. So good. Not remotely a fan of the extremely limited poses or the metal or the weird way some of the separate arms stick out, but the details are delicious.

Plastics that replaced them are in plastic? And have useful heads for converting other things. That's about all I got.

But wow, it's hard to find a daemonic steed to beat that's deader than this one

Maybe generic wasn't the proper word. But is like the Blodletters we have now. They don't follow your typical depiction of a lesser fighting daemon like the 3rd edition( I think was in that edition) did.
For me Warhammer Daemons are all about being horrible and distorted. Diaz's Daemonettes where too appealling. Even with the claws, feets and 6 tits.

But I'll drop this subject here because its offtopic, I apologize.

We still may not see Slaanesh for a long time outside of fluff stuff about him. At least I hope we don't, 4 (really 7) major chaos releases across 2 game systems in a year is plenty, thank you very much. Chaos have started to make Stormcast look like Tomb Kings.

We actually don't know if they ARE order yet. There's some rumblings that they'll either be defecting to Death as an allied Cohort of Nagash OR that they'll have the ability to Mercenary for both Order and Death.

Probably Sigmar's. Despite being an original Slaanesh worshiper, I doubt she'd be interested in joining with Khorne, Nurgle and Tzeentch. But really, deity-level Morathi is scary no matter which one she is talking about.

I'm sure she'll be in Sigmar's pantheon, but help build civilization and then being forgotten could have made her bitter. Just saying.

I am not chaos player. To me, though, Slanesh is same tier as Sisters or Inquisition, most of models are just as old and these that are not are so terrible they don't deserve to be acknowledged. Hell, you can say that thanks to Greyfax/Tempestus kits, Inquisition is in better place than Slanesh currently, as you can create a batallion that doesn't look like utter gak with minimal conversions

Personally I've made it a policy not to complain about release schedule. I mean, I'll lobby for things I want (High Elves, Sisters, Inquisition, Rogue Traders, WFB human factions other than Bretonnia and the Empire (hah!)), but in the meantime I'm okay hitching my wagon to whatever comes out to pass the time... and Slaanesh and I go way back.

I'm genuinely curious which book this is. I've just started getting onto AoS...and I thought I was reading the AoS fiction in order. Started with Gates of Azyr, then moved on to War Storm, and just finished Ghal Maraz. I dont recall reading anything about Slaanesh...lots of Khorne, lots of Nurgle, Plague Skaven, a little Tzeentch, and a whisper of Death/Nagash, but nothing Slaanesh themed yet!

Probably this one https://www.games-workshop.com/en-GB/Warhammer-Age-of-Sigmar-Book-ENG The very first AoS rule/background/campaign book. If you have just been going through the BL fiction it would most likely have passed under your radar.

I mean, I'll lobby for things I want (High Elves, Sisters, Inquisition, Rogue Traders, WFB human factions other than Bretonnia and the Empire (hah!)), but in the meantime I'm okay hitching my wagon to whatever comes out to pass the time... and Slaanesh and I go way back.

Being a Chaos player really warps your perspective on what 'long overdue' means huh? Try playing Sisters, Inquisition, High Aelves, or (hardmode) tomb kings. It'll give perspective.


I don't play Tomb Kings, but the others... yeah for sure.


You don't have to feel bad about that. I played Tomb Kings, and look where that got us.

This isn't a competition. All of these are in a bad place. So is Slaanesh. Doesn't help that the models are less than ten years old if they look awful. Doesn't help that Tzeentch and Khorne and Nurgle got tons of models - they're not Slaanesh. Tossing them together as Chaos doesn't get Slaanesh players the models we want any more than calling Sisters and Inquisition an Imperial army of which we had many releases or throwing High Elves on the elf pile - if you want the shiny Tyrion cheerleader squad, what good are Greek Khaine worshippers are going to do you?

I think the line where she says she helped build civilization puts her in the Order camp.


My read on it is that she’ll be trying to usurp Slaanesh as revenge. That tension between them will drive this little sub-plot.

The "hoplite style wych aelves" are remarkably similar to the two 'handlers' that come with the Cauldron of Blood kit when built as the Bloodwrack Shrine.

There's not really a "Khaine pantheon". Khaine was one of the Cytharai, the 'dark gods' of the Aelves. They were gods that were honored but only kinda/sorta?
Each of the different Aelf races worshipped a different 'set' in the center of the Mandala there.
High Elves would have Lileath, Asuryan, Vaul, Isha and the other 'light gods' in the center. Asuryan took Khaine's place there.
Wood Elves had Kurnous and Isha as an intertwined entity taking the place of Khaine in their pantheon. Then it went "The Ancients"(spirits of the forest), and the rest are just placed in no particular order as the Wood Elves viewed them as being true to their natures.

Khaine was a god to be feared not one whose blessing one would seek out.
Ereth Khial was the goddess of death IIRC.
Anath Raema was the flipside of Kurnous(the "noble hunter god").
A few of the others never really got explored too much. Morai-Heg played a big part in the Sundering(at least if "The Shadow King" is still canon), or at least ensuring that Alith-Anar and his lineage survived it to wreak havoc on Malekith. Asuryan, Vaul, Loec, Kurnous, Isha all played a part in Aelf lore that made them a Big Deal.

Lileath actually played a pivotal role in the End Times. Read "Khaine" if you're interested in knowing how.

Look at what from their perspective?

All of the Elves worshiped the same gods.
This isn't a case of different pantheons. They all had the same deities. It's just that each race gave them different prominence.

It's also worth mentioning that Morathi? She wasn't really tied to any of the cults of Elven gods. She was the founder of the Cult of Excess. She was the patroness of that Cult. She and her Sorceresses went out of their way to court Slaanesh's favor at every turn. They made pacts with the Chaos Gods even.

Right now it just seems like she's got a bad case of sour grapes over getting eaten by her god.

Indeed she and what was her son joined Sigmar in the Age of Myth, (p56 of Mughty battles)

The diagram shown even discusses the differences in how the High and Dark Elves wirship the same dieties

Khaine is still worshipped by some Aelves in the Mortal Realms, mianly the daughters of Khaine an I recall in one of the novels a chracter rembering nights when they haunted the streets of Azyr cities and claimed victims.

The Greek theme actually makes a sort of sense. First, obviously, there's the medusa, which was a monster from Greek mythology. Second, the Witch Aelves have more than a passing resemblance to the Maenads, female worshippers of Dionysus who, while under a euphoric enraged madness induced by his influence, were known to literally tear people apart.

The news so far is just the video linked earlier. That video contains Slaaneshi daemons, Witch Aelves, and Medusae. And it has a voice over that's probably Morathi.

Agreed. Definitively this is interesting and has potential. I loathed AOS at first, but with 40k being so boring lately, I'm open to a change of heart, and greek themed snake elves could be the push I need

It's possible. But the images show Slaaneshi daemons fighting Khainites. Isha's not affiliated with either group, and there's nothing within the video itself that would seem to connect with her.

Looks like they are going full Greek. Gorgons, Harpies, Hoplites, and as mentioned above Witch Elves being Maenads. Hopefully the Hydra will find its way in as well. Looks like they will also be all female and led by a new Morathi.

This fills in the elves from the realm of shadow rumors. I am curios to see how their cousins from the realm of light turn out.

Also wonder if this will stop the (already very flawed) claims from people that TKs were only ended and not coming back (even though they are in the fluff) "because Egypt". Probably not.

Neither of the two AOS elves released for Silver Tower look particularly Greek? The Witch Elves

I am thinking maybe some variation around the Medusae, a Morathi figure (crossed fingers) and maybe another unit or two but not much more.

Some cavalry witch Elves would be fun.

The CoB has Greek themes, but I don't think you can really describe it as "just" Greek themed. This release will probably be similar

Only thing is... from an old piece of lore, I remember Morathi being a follower of Slaanesh, and not of Khaine, so, as weird as this might be, I am thinking there's a tiny, minuscule chance t might be Hellebron... But it simply could be Morathi being "redeemed", as it fits the theme much better...

The mythologies aren't only similar, there is direct continuity with old Warhammer Fantasy.

For that reason I think Isha is unlikely because Alarielle herself incarnated in the Mortal Realms as its feral barefoot life goddess. Plus, I don't think anyone would describe Isha as a 'demigoddess' anyway.

The fall series paints her as trying to use the gods to her advantage and being the head cultist of the dark patheon of Elvish gods. While Hellebron was the high priestess of Khaine and while Morathi didn't worship him primarily I can see her reference to a dead god (almost all of the patheon is dead at this point). Either way this could be super damn cool. And there can be zero doubt it's Morathi since she got ate by Slaanesh during the endtimes and snakey imagery is his daemon thing.

Morathi created the Cauldrons of Blood, which are used by the Witch Elves in the worship of Khaine. So while she wasn't one of Khaine's most ardent supporters, it's also incorrect to say that she completely ignored him.

Ehhh...they weren't created strictly for the worship of Khaine.

They were created so that she had a leash over the Khainites. Remember that she controlled who had access to them and their regenerative powers. It was a point of contention between her and Hellebron and was even why Hellebron was called "The Hag Queen". She wasn't allowed access to to 'whole' of their magical powers.

Hyped to the point where my main concern is none of my friends play AoS.

On the other hand a bit concerned it might not be as great as I imagine. New Morathi is basically guaranteed - but as I see it everything else in the video could be an existing model. Not sure on how the Sprue Works - but just releasing individual Medusae from the Cauldron/Wrack model might be possible.

Then again I can't believe they would release Morathi with out at least 2-3 boxes to go with her. Hoping for reveals this weekend.

The references to Slaanesh are interesting. Is it possible they could have Morathi usurp Slaanesh and fold the DoK and the Hosts of Slaanesh into one faction? If GW combine DoK and Slaanesh, which the video seems to be hinting at, and add in a few new models they would have a "new" good-sized faction without having to produce a whole bunch of new models. Or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Chopstick wrote:Since one part of the rumour is correct the other Elves will (probably) be Water monster riding Elf

Personally I won't be holding my breath on that one. Two new aelf factions is probably too much to hope for, and despite the persistent rumours of sea-themed cthulu aelves I don't see any evidence that this is something GW was ever actually planning to do. I could be wrong, but haven't all the rumour-engine images that people claimed were sea-aelves turned out to be other things? It seems like people have seen what GW did with the Kharadon Overlords (SKY DWARVES!) and assumed that SEA ELVES! are the next logical step.

I'd be happy to be proven wrong on this one because sea-themed cthulu aelves would be the most awesome thing ever. Hell, I'd be happy with just a couple of new Scourge Privateer models.

Assuming Doomfire Warlocks are included that would create a decent Sylvaneth sized pool of units and give us a solid summer release that apparently isn't now coming from Death.

In keeping with the Greek theme, I can also see the new faction getting the War Hydra.

Keep in mind that we do have an actual "aelf standing on a tentacle" model. So it's not so "out there" as one might think.

True, you could be right, but it's a very small tentacle and to me seems more like a weird plant or part of a twisted landscape than it does a sea monster. One of the Stormcast Liberator models has a vaguely similar tentacle-like/plant protuberance under foot.

Wouldn't that be a bit of a case of robbing Peter to pay Paul? Order Serpentis only consists of about four models as it it is. Take away the War Hydra and there's not much left.

Looks like they are going full Greek. Gorgons, Harpies, Hoplites, and as mentioned above Witch Elves being Maenads. Hopefully the Hydra will find its way in as well. Looks like they will also be all female and led by a new Morathi.

This fills in the elves from the realm of shadow rumors. I am curios to see how their cousins from the realm of light turn out.

Also wonder if this will stop the (already very flawed) claims from people that TKs were only ended and not coming back (even though they are in the fluff) "because Egypt". Probably not.


I though that greek style fresque could be mostly related to the serpent it can represent. Also there was many serpent like rumour engine lately

A bit, but it's rather obvious that most of these small old factions will eventually fall into bolivia (mike tyson tm)

The references to Slaanesh are interesting. Is it possible they could have Morathi usurp Slaanesh and fold the DoK and the Hosts of Slaanesh into one faction? If GW combine DoK and Slaanesh, which the video seems to be hinting at, and add in a few new models they would have a "new" good-sized faction without having to produce a whole bunch of new models. Or am I barking up the wrong tree?

I'd be happy to be proven wrong on this one because sea-themed cthulu aelves would be the most awesome thing ever. Hell, I'd be happy with just a couple of new Scourge Privateer models.


They're not going to be Chaos unless they're FULLY killing off Slaanesh. Morathi hates Slaanesh after the end times and would KILL any servants of Slaanesh. In fact, the video clearly shows them killing each other.

They could just add a keyword to it so that is could be taken in both allegiances. That's not unprecedented.

Also, the 2nd elf faction we get this year is supposed to be from the realm of light I believe according to the rumors.

And they said from the beginning LoN was just going to be a book, no new models or warscrolls (not even the Herald apparently). But they also said it will be a big year for Death. So maybe after MP wraps up, or closer to Christmas we might get something.

The Lvo seminar will be finished about 21 hours from now ( I'm definitely counting the minutes). GW said on this week's rumour engine that there would be a full rundown of the seminar on Saturday so we may just get reports from attendees till then.

I'm almost sure I read a WHTV Facebook post saying to tune in (maybe on twitch with Warhammer live) on Thursday evening - https://lasvegasopen.squarespace.com/blog/2017/12/22/seminars-at-the-lvo-2018

Then the last WarCom article about the LVO (talking about Saturday) could mean they won't do a summary / report until this week end....

Hope we got a WarCom article this night. Or report from people going there.

Morathi might hate Slaaneah but clearly Morathi has also taken on some aspects of Slaaneah. That seems significant. Maybe Morathi kills Slaanesh and becomes a new chaos god, or maybe the daemonettes leave Slaanesh and join order.

If Morathi isn't usurping Slaanesh in some form then the prominence of Slaanesh in the video and the references to her being shaped by Slaanesh seem odd.

Because Morathi doesn't exist in 40K and there is no way GW is getting rid of dual-game range with twice as many customers as most of their boxes?

Look at Nurgle/TSons, multiple fantasy kits were added to 40K lists to broaden their appeal, and now they would do the complete reverse with major range?

Morathi was an exceptionally vain creature. From what's been said, Slaanesh has twisted her somehow. That's gonna breed a lot of hatred - especially now she's a demi-goddess.

After she escaped, the video says she helped bring about civilisation in the Mortal Realms, and was the first to stand against Chaos.

From slightly hazy memory, they knew the incursion of Chaos was never a question of If, but When.

In the early days, it was all quite easily contained and dealt with. But of course, Chaos is ultimately really quite patient....

They could still do Slaanesh dual releases for 40k if they wanted to, the demon models wouldn't need to change, they would just be complimented by Morathi and DoK in AoS.

Of course it's possible that the Slaanesh figures in the video are just being used as generic enemies and there's no greater significance. But they are featured very prominently which suggests that Slaanesh is going to be very important to what they're doing with Morathi.

Stormcast Eternals and the Undead have been prominentely featured in the Maggotkin Trailer and still they weren't lumped together. Furthermore, the khaine symbolism is equally strong in the Trailer. In conclusion, Slaanesh was added to the trailer for Story reasons and might even bei important to the overall Aelf story. Nothing more, nothing less.

We know for sure we are going to know the fate of Slaanesh this year. When, we have no idea as it was only said "2018". It can be now, it can be in December, we must wait and see.

IMHO, it looks like a glorious return (RIP wallet)

Well both Morathi and her son werer part of Sigmar's Pantheon although only he was named as a protector of a specific Realm. She enjoyed the trappings of civilisaton (like Neferata) and liekly the two of them enjoyed plotting against each other and then meeting up to chat about it every dcade or so - would make a fun short story....

Also intersting that the Daughters of Khaine werer/are allowed to continue their bloody ways in Azyr and didn;t get purgd by Sigmar after the gates shut

Well, Slaanesh is in line to get a big release in the near future. Therefore it makes sense to feature Slaanesh in the background of the new faction, to create a link with the future Slaanesh release.

Keep in mind that we do have an actual "aelf standing on a tentacle" model. So it's not so "out there" as one might think.

Spoiler:

Calling that "aelf standing on a tentacle" is a bit of a stretch. It could be a tentacle or it could be some weird vegetation. It never explicitly gets called out as to what it is.

But yeah, the "SEA ELVES!" rumors started up when the tentacle for the Necromunda objective set got previewed. At that same general time, Harry or Hastings(can't remember exactly which) made a comment about Aelves having a "Lovecraftian vibe" and people immediately assumed "CTHULU AELVES!".

It's a common issue with rumors when things are years out and people use vague terms like "Lovecraftian vibe".

I don't recall the timeline exactly, so I may be wrong about this, but the Warhammer Community article doesn't go up immediately after the seminar. First we get to enjoy reports and shaky pictures from the seminar before we get glossy high quality pictures in the related article. There's nothing to stop GW from having a seminar on Thursday and an article on Saturday.

Also keep in mind that Americans live in the past, so depending when on Saturday the article goes up, it may be no more than 28 or 29 hours after the event. That's not a massive gap.

That's a really poor way of phrasing it. Far be it from me to criticize Slaanesh for taking a vacation in Tyrion's torture cellar, but you know, work keeps piling up and somebody's got to bring joy to the Mortal Realms. Would be cool if Slaanesh did in fact go somewhere, eventually.

Exactly. Cthulu sea elves isn't an implausible direction to go in but there's no actual evidence that's their intention. And yet because the rumour has been repeated so often it's taken on the status of fact in a lot of people's minds.

Can we please stop conflating "Lovecraftian" and "Cthulhu"? You are aware that Lovecraft wrote stories about many, many gods, and others continued the work long after his death. Cthulhu was only one of many gods in a dark pantheon. Call of Cthulhu wasn't even his best work. "Lovecraftian" refers to an entire genre of fiction known as cosmic horror. Anything to do with ancient gods, unseen horrors, or just the general entropic decay of the universe is Lovecraftian.


Sorry. As a long-time Lovecraft fan, it's grating to constantly hear his name associated with only one story.

Wasn't Hastings talking about Lovecrafterian Elves bevor the Necromunda Tentacle was shown? somehow I remember that the whole Cthulhu elves was fuelled bey that said tentacle and the existence of a Lovecrafterian elves rumour.

But yeah, Lovecrafterian Elves was always much more and different to me than the interpretation of Cthulhu Elves - more an eldritch horror than a tentacle hung deity thing.

Like I said, I can't recall exacting details just that it was around the same time. Because like you said--the whole Cthulu Elves "rumor" picked up more and more steam once we saw that tentacle.

What's weirder is that people invented that he said Lovecraftian and not Cthulu - then told people off for saying Cthulu Aelves

"Cthulu/Deep One Aelves " is the quote.

Sorry. As a long-time Lovecraft fan, it's grating to constantly hear his name associated with only one story.


Ya know, when it's known as "Cthulhu Mythos", I fear for your sanity


I see what you did there - and I approve!

And given the hints involving tentacles and an octopus (allegedly), well, it is too easy to shout out H.P.'s most famous creation.

Besides, it is just shorthand, and more easily understandable to many.

It's precisely because Call of Cthulhu has elements that are distinct from the rest of Lovecraft's work that people latch onto that term to describe what they're anticipating out of this release. Calling them 'Lovecraftian' is simply too generic a term.

In fact, GW draws a lot on Lovecraft: Genestealer Cults are Innsmouth in Space, C'Tan were originally described as unknowable godlike othernesses beyond the more Moorecock influenced chaos gods, and frankly the story of a gifted mathematician able to calculate a specific angle so precisely it allows her to slip between dimensions is so in line with how they characterize Tzeench I wouldn't be surprised if that exact character appears somewhere in the annals of the Black Library.

Maybe I was too subtle. They say Cthulu because the original rumour was for Cthulu/Deep One Aelves and NOT Lovecraftian Aelves.

Thanks very much, so a few bits to mull over.........

I don't think Dark Elves will exist any more, at least not in the current aesthetic, I think the Cthulu/Deep one Aelves coming out way are meant to be a shadowy almost swings both ways army, they're certainly dark anyway from what I understand, I'm expecting to see them at Adepticon next week with a release either later this year or at the beginning of next year. You'll have to forgive me but I've been out of the loop for a while.


He mentions it several times. Disqus is really unpleasant to get history from so if you want to find the rest, you're welcome to.

Edit: here's the first mention of them:


"BTW Bob have you guys heard anything about the slightly Cthulu/Deep One elves (Aelves) due out later this year? (After Steamheads, which I think are next - oh and there's chat of some skaven stuff too iirc)"

Then that's on me. I could have sworn he initially did post about it as Lovecraftian, walked it back to "Cthulu/Deep Ones" after he claimed to have seen something and then kept doing it.

Saying "Cthulu/Deep One" is...yeah. That's not helpful at all.

I think he only had them described to him too, so it could mean anything. I don't know if it's these Morathi Aelves or the other Shadowkin that he's describing (though I seem to remember him saying the WHQ Aelves didn't match what he had heard)

Perhaps the Slaaneshi/Snakey Aelves are what he's describing

Jeebus. One BoLS article and everyone loses their mind!

Why not? Anything is possible, and if they have Morathi become the new Slaanesh it wouldn't be that jarring.

Because Morathi doesn't exist in 40K and there is no way GW is getting rid of dual-game range with twice as many customers as most of their boxes?

Look at Nurgle/TSons, multiple fantasy kits were added to 40K lists to broaden their appeal, and now they would do the complete reverse with major range?

They could still do Slaanesh dual releases for 40k if they wanted to, the demon models wouldn't need to change, they would just be complimented by Morathi and DoK in AoS.

Of course it's possible that the Slaanesh figures in the video are just being used as generic enemies and there's no greater significance. But they are featured very prominently which suggests that Slaanesh is going to be very important to what they're doing with Morathi.


Well, Slaanesh is in line to get a big release in the near future. Therefore it makes sense to feature Slaanesh in the background of the new faction, to create a link with the future Slaanesh release.


Is he? Not having models and featuring heavily in the narrative=/=releases. If it did we'd be looking at a big SoB release and we're not. Slaanesh isn't coming anytime soon if ever, and Morathi will only be tangentially related. The one thing I will say about the whole thing is Morathi isn't going to be Chaos.

Yeah, she's a lot like her old model. Do like the atmosphere, and the fact her spear resembles the one used by medusae a bit.

Not a fan of the spikes on her boots though. Heh, will file them off when I'll get the model!

Also, flying scorpion-thingy in the first frame, and probably there's a scorpion tail poking in the bottom left corner in the last frame.

Someone already said - yes. Both Shornaal(snake) and Loesh(sea serpent) aspects of Slaanesh in the Norscan pantheon uses serpentine imagery, and Slaaneshi factions among the northern barbarians take names like Tribe of the Serpent. I can't speak to any of the nuFluff.

Normally Slaanesh is represented with snakes or cows. Khorne is wolfs and dogs, and Tzeentch is birds (Ravens) and fish.
Nurgle is represented with flies but I believe he had other animal attached to him, but I can't remember what was it.

No.

Yeah, Nurgle had the crows and Tzeentch had ravens.

Were there any Nurgle models that really incorporated the crow motif? I can't recall any.

I just think of goats and pestigors.

A crow is a bird of the genus Corvus, or more broadly as a synonym for all of Corvus. The term "crow" is used as part of the common name of many species.

Corvus is a genus, not a species.
Think of it like this:
Family->Genus->Species
So, the Common Raven would be:
Corvus Corax of the Corvidae family.

Crow is kind of a catch-all for anything smaller than a raven.

Spoiler:

This guy had a crow.

There aren't many, but it was always kinda/sorta just that it got associated with Nurgle because of the fact that crows are associated with decaying corpses it seemed like.

So all Ravens are Crows but not all Crows are Ravens. Ok, thanks.

I think the Nurgle association with Crows is like Tzeentch with Fish and Slaanesh with Cows, more of a background thing. Their primary animals have always been Flies, Ravens/Birds and Snakes.

Raven and Crow are names of different species in the Corvus genus. Crows are generally smaller species. So there’s the common raven, thick billed raven, Carrion crow etc.

Wait those are Harpies? I thought they were just "because it's ultra-high fantasy now" Elves with wings. Yeah, not as appealing in that case, Harpies should be total fuggos. They might be salvageable though depending on how integrated the wings are and the poses, as alternative Witch Elves.

The snake-ladies are really interesting though.

No, it’s not said what they are. I assume the same as you, they’re just witch elves with wings.

I adore all of the new models but I hope there is more, by that I mean a generic HQ unit or some generic heroes like what the Kharadrons got...a character I could name and whatever, hopefully a serpent one.

Also hoping I don't have to build the army around the current witch aelf kit. The kit is aesthetically good but I don't like how they are all leaping, and mouths hanging open, plus only 5 unique poses, six heads. They were 100% designed for WHF to be rank and file. So when put on round bases in an AoS unit they look funky...good sculpts for WHF but not posed well for a loose unit IMO.

1. Morathi (<-- GLORIOUS)

3.a Furies



(Love the shield design)

Is it me or does it look like that army was painted in a real hurry (relatively speaking). Very little highlighting. The horses look a bit rushed. And even the big snake lady just looks like black painted over red. Great looking army, and I am sure later reveals will have much more detail in the paint.
Also that statue of Khaine. Seems like it might be terrain like the nurgle tree.

Damn, I was fully prepared for these to look silly but GW went all out on the Greek stylization in the trailers and it turned out awesome. I kinda want to use Morathi as a count as daemon prince in 40k.

What’s up with Morathis stomach window? I’m not generally opposed to the Witch Aelf aesthetic, in fact they are some of my favourite models, but a literal round window for your belly button? I know Morathi is vain but come on, that just looks silly.

Yep Morathi is and has always been that vain.

Her hair would be more of a worry in combat unless it is animated.

But Wow - these all look awesome.

Am very very VERY hyped by that video. Love the new models, epecially Morathi, and her metal wings fit so good with my AoS elves theme. DoK have been my first group of models when AOS started, and I'm really, really happy with the idea of them getting a proper battletome!

Really nice models, but somehow the music made me expect hairy bikers with shotguns... Did they MAKE that tune or just picked some copyright free stuff ?

Archer gorgons really caught my eyes, shame their price will be twice what i'm willing to pay.

Is it me or does it look like that army was painted in a real hurry (relatively speaking). Very little highlighting. The horses look a bit rushed. And even the big snake lady just looks like black painted over red. Great looking army, and I am sure later reveals will have much more detail in the paint.
Also that statue of Khaine. Seems like it might be terrain like the nurgle tree.

How can horses be rushed when it's years old studio kit they already had painted ages ago?

Ditto for statue, it's just top decoration of their old DoK pimpmobile, nothing new again

Daughters of Khaine don't have a Start Collecting. There's a bundle box with a Cauldron of Blood and a box of Witch Elves though.

If you are looking to collect this army on a budget it might be worth waiting till Christmas. Every new aos Army in 2017 got a battleforce box at the end of the year.

That Daughters of Khaine combo box with the Witch Aelves and Cauldron is a no brainer if you're an Aussie, $45 savings for two units that total up to $150 normally. The Cauldron kit itself is ridiculously valuable if you want to do a full army, if you build it as a Bloodwrack Shrine then you get 2 distinct Death Hag models and the statue of Khaine, all you need is a base for the extra Death Hag. On the flip side, build it as the Cauldron of Blood and you still get 1 Death Hag and the Bloodwrack Medusa. As of Generals Handbook 2, both the Witch Aelves and Sisters of Slaughter are really nasty with the proper support, so having in excess of 30 of each is not a bad idea at all.

The new stuff just makes doing the army that much easier, presumably they will change the way Cauldrons work so they don't stack but give Daughters all those new options to compensate. The thing about Daughters of Khaine is that they currently don't have any single "demi-god" tier model to benefit from all those stacking Cauldron saves, I'm guessing they won't keep that in the rules when giant snake Morathi is around, but who knows I guess. Lovely models!

I wasn't trying to pick on you; was just making certain that people didn't think "WAIT when did they get a Start Collecting?!" or anything.

It was a limited run bundle so hopefully more will show up.

I don't know about other regions but that bundle (Witch Aelf kit + Cauldron of Blood kit for a discount) still very much exists on the Australian Games Workshop website and is available, I believe some stores even carry it on the shelves or they were up to as recently as a month or two ago.

I should clarify a bit:

When I say "limited run", it doesn't mean that there's a specific timeframe for the bundles to exist. They don't usually get rid of those bundles just because the time has "run out" on them. They set a stock level on them and then keep them until the stock sells through.

It's entirely possible they've changed their minds on it being a limited run though. We'll have to wait and see if it comes back in after going No Longer Available.

I get ya, though I'd imagine if they were planning on waiting for stock to run out before removing them that at least one of those bundles would have disappeared by now as from what I gather the Daughters of Khaine and Spiderfang ones in particular have been selling like hot-cakes. Best to buy those bundles up now if you're a Daughters of Khaine fan though for sure.

That's correct. That's why I said that when/if it finally does go out of stock/NLA--we'll have to watch out to see if it's going to become a regular stock item or what.

If you want to Daughters of Khaine, chances are Witch Aelves, Warlocks and Sisters of Slaughter will remain the only Battleline choices, so get those Blood Covens ASAP if you don't want to risk them going OOS. If I end up doing Shadow Aelves, I plan on getting at least three of those boxes.

It looks like these aren't our Shadow Aelves. No Malerion means it's not his Shadowkin!

Sweet hell's teeth, gorgons everywhere O_O

I'll see how long I can last, have a lot on my plate this year, and I guess there are two things on my wallet's side:

1) AOS is probably the only place I'm really going to use an army of snake chicks, especially one that transmogrifies into an enormous snake monster. I can't think of a great KOW port right now (though Twilight Kin is being reworked and I'm pretty great at finding rules for minis).

2) Even if I wanted to play AOS again, I agree that the gorgons are unlikely to be battleline units, meaning I have to dilute things with a few squads of $$$ infantry / ponies. They're nice and all, but not snake ladies, and hella expensive.

BUT ANYWAY: EXCITE

Indeed, there was no sign of the mistweaver or the shard. I imagine that they will be part of the next group of Aelves that GW said was coming.

Notice that I said "If I end up doing Shadow Aelves" implying I'd do both armies

Malerion's Shadow Aelves are the fish/Cthulu aelves based on what I know and have read, though I'd imagine the two will complement each other as the two main "Ulgu" Aelf armies, we'll see what Morathi's expanded lore is like.

Ok, thanks guys. I suppose I'll buy the box with the witches + the cauldron, and wait for the proper release before getting more troops. The box + round bases comes at 4,9€/mini, that's pretty steep for regular infantry…

You've lost me. They reboxed old WHFB units to bigger but discounted boxes. What do these two AoS releases have to do with that?

To be fair they’ve done it with Stormcast too, but they did it when they got a new book (which Sylvaneth and Fyreslayers haven’t).

Then I'd bring your attention to Wild Riders, Glade Guard, and Eternal Guard.

All were reboxed to include the round/oval bases but have not had their numbers increased.

They did it with Stormcast, Seraphon, Ogres, and a few others. Not all of them have coincided with book releases either. Just the majority of them.

I really hate that they keep doing this. Mounted and winged vampire lords should be separate warscrolls or have separate point costs (which I presume that they don't.) It is annoying that if you like to model your characters on foot, you're just intentionally gimping yourself.

As a general rule, if the box is the updated white box with the AoS logo, it'll have round bases. The older WHFB boxes will have squares. That's the best way to know if a kit has squares or rounds.

What size base are the Medusa on? Is that 32mm round? If so, and comparing them to the Witch Aelves next to them, they're not overly large. So maybe 5 to a box? Guessing around £30?

The ones on the cauldron fit perfectly on a Stormcast base, so I would go with 50 mm, but the archer ones might use smaller 32 mm bases, or, depending on the pose, elongated ones like those used for cavalry.

Stormcast are on 40mm, I believe.
