Video is amusing.

I wonder if they will bolster order with another aelf army, or surprise us.

Also, I really hope this afternoon has a small annoncment for Seraphon. Even if it's just more of an acknowledgement. That answer given at the panel was... Frustrating.

Ohh they hired the Leviathan Warships trailer guy (ok not really but the same voice acting style)

Honestly REALLY happy to see this. It looks like GW is both creating a new army, but also going back to the roots for the new Light Aelves. I can bet a lot of high elf players are feeling rather happy that they might get to use their old models in a new line of war and if they've sold them off in a fit of sad rage; they can get really shiny really up to date new sculpts!



Overall very nice news! Sure its not until Spring, but that fits with GW steadily teasing us with hints and trailer spoilers for a good few months until then, which fits well with how they typically release a fresh force. Hopefully they put a little more up front, I felt with Ossiarchs that they held back a little early on, which makes sense as it was a good sized, but not massive force so there was a limited range to show. But I think a bit more early on really gets people excited for the right things.



Great news, very happy to hear about it. Shame there was no Seraphon news, but honestly I can't imagine that we'll have to wait long to hear about them.


Kinda makes sense I guess.

The main new stuff for AoS has been, well, new. Very new. A distinct departure from Tolkeinesque. But we’ve also seen Orcs and Gobbos largely unchanged, Chaos and Cities of Sigmar too. So to give some Elves in the classical style does make sense.

The video is the afternoon announcement - and it is more Order Aelves.

Seraphon didn't get a look in, but I can't imagine that it will be long before we hear of them - February or March.

'We'll probably think of a better name'

Don't matter. 'Pointy elves' is gonna stick. (as is the pronunciation. It isn't the same without the drawl). It's going to stick so hard its going to be retroactively applied to Warhammer Classic as well.

Nice appeal to nostalgia, though.

I look forward to actual photographs at some point to see if its worth getting into. But not today.

So, teclis is now a god, so I’m assuming a morathi style model for him with a price tag to match.

More importantly, pointy elves always have dragons.
The DE dragon is an abomination, the plastic HE dragon was better but still terrible.
The stardrake is just a thing.

Hoping we get something like a plastic Carmine style dragon.


Don’t want the elves, but another dragon is never bad.

Super excited for that Wrath of the Everchosen - we haven't had a proper campaign book for AOS in a while. My group's chat is pretty stoked about tons of new scenarios and fun rules, especially for sieges.

Yes, this is exactly what Aos needed, more random monsters, spells and guff to clutter the board. Oh, and StD players, hope you don't mind buying two books to get a full battletome.

So done with GW's horrible "books as DLC" expansion concept.
So to defend GW on this one;
-The current uncontrolled monster rules aren't very good; they just randomly pick a player to control them for a turn. The definitely need an upgrade, we'll see if these are any good but they aren't 'new' so to speak.
-StD are already a full battletome, they totally work as an army now.
-The way the previous forbidden power book worked was new allegiance options that could be taken with xyz models, NOT extra options for an existing allegiance. Using Defenders of Lethys or Legion of Grief means no rules from any battletome are being used at all, they are totally separate. This is completely different to, say, the 40k approach where it is just free extra stuff. Obviously they could go either way, but it is too early to make that call.

In regards to new content, I got a lot of mileage out of the empowered artifacts from the last one as well as modifying scenarios for my own use. As with most GW campaign books it was a useful toolbox to adapt for one's own group.

Ultimately, Forbidden Power =/= Psychic Awakening, at least so far.

That we got another trio of rules that just cause Mortal Wounds in slightly different ways? Yep. Very proud.
Make a list of the army-specific packs that actually do that. It's very short. Hell, only one of the three Tzeentch ones is a damage-dealer. The other two have a chance to deal mortal wounds, but one is only 1/6 and the other is a miscast mechanic that hurts you. I might as well say "All of HBMC's posts criticize GW in slightly different ways." and it would be equally (un)true.

Consider; Games Workshop rules not so much games but as toolboxes for players to craft an experience from, and open/narrative/matched play just examples of how things can be put together.

Yeah that surprised me too unless GW is holding back on it. Even a bog standard wall with nothing fancy about it would be pretty much expected from them. Then again at the same time a LOT of AoS armies don't even have any siege weapons and GW shut down dwarven siege mercenaries when they axed the cannon set (and the human great cannon too). Indeed whilst Siege is most welcome its a really odd time to release it being as GW isn't selling any complete wall systems (save for the Rohan one) and isn't selling siege weapons for more than half their AoS armies.

Teclis elves is potentially exciting. Too many tassles is not exciting- I've had a handful of flimsy tassles break on my idoneth, so I'd rather have more...compact models. That's the one thing I really do miss from the old world- the models were much sturdier in overall design.
Ironically, none of the many nighthaunts I've put together for a friend broke in any way, but the number of tiny stormcast spikes and danglies on idoneth that disappeared mysteriously is legion.

The Las Vegas Open is in three weeks and GW has done previews from the LVO the last two years, so its a good bet that something is being held back for that preview.

Sadly GW got rid of their BEST dragon the awesome Magmadragon only a week or two ago (I'd have panic bought one but I don't run any destruction army and coudln't think of another I could run it in without starting a whole new army :()

As for Teclis actually he and many of the big Aelves from the Old World are now gods. His bother, Morathi's son - they are all gods. Morathi though, she got "betrayed" and eaten by Slaanesh. So whilst the other major Aelves were gasping at power as the Old World fell apart, she was being slowly digested in the belly of the Prince of Excess.

However she managed to escape that living hell. Her body though, was corrupted. Her soul survived intact, but her body was warped by the experience. Many times its original size and the great Queen of Beauty and Pleasure became, basically, a Gorgon. A head of snake hair; dragon wings; the lower body a mighty serpent. She also did not get anywhere near any great powers from her entrapment and escape. She's still a formidable magic user, but she's got nothing on the actual gods. Indeed she later found the last part of Khaine, his Iron Heart, which survived the end of the Old World.

In theory Khaine could be reborn from it and she used it to help found her people, the Daughters of Khaine. However she instead syphons the power from the prayers offered up to Khaine. Letting her gain powers that she otherwise would not have. Far as I can gather this makes her strong, but perhaps not as strong as Sigmar, Nagash etc... Ergo the other "true gods" of the AoS era.


As for a model I've a feeling he'll be more like the Everqueen, so rather than being a huge model himself, he'll be astride some great beast or platform or such (like a huge dragon one might hope!). The one that I think will be a beast in size is Malarion (Morathi's son) who has fashioned his Aelven people more after dragons in appearance - indeed the small amount of art we have shows him off looking VERY demonic (even though he's not demonic in the chaos sense) with wings, horns and claw hands.

I wasn’t going that deep with this one buddy, just taking a poke at GW and the way hero’s get a model size based on their status was all :p

The magma dragon was ace, I do have one but I’ve not even assembled it yet.
I panicked and grabbed one plus a 3rd Carmine dragon when it went to last chance.

One of the best dragons I regret never owning was the big FW chaos dragon.
Absolutely stunning but wasn’t in a position to drop £250 back then.
Same with the emperor fire dragon.
Smaug is tempting, but having seen a lot of reviews and unboxings of the more recent casts, the quality is falling away and it’s hardly a cheap investment.

Just a shame that GW currently don’t make any dragons I like.
Their last one for me was the Forest dragon with the sisters of twilight kit.

The Khornate dragon FW currently sells is an incredible centerpiece model. Highly recommend it if you don’t have it. I do wish FW would bring back the War Mammoth and Chaos Dragon though, it’s hard as hell to find even decent recasts of them.
