My poor, poor wallet, I'm quite happy I've been able to resist a lot of releases and just focusing on painting my Ironjawz, but "Cthulhu Elves" (I Hope) and Slaanesh would be such Wallet destroyers.

Which sources said so? I disagree that it is confirmed but may have missed the rumor(s) Slaanesh focus in 2018? Likely. But confirmed?

Video: 25:46 - But all they said was literally "You will be learning more about the fate of Slaanesh next year". (but man, did I get hyped with the Shadespire news! Warscrolls for every single character, ooohhh boy!)

The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all
We love our superheroes because they refuse to give up on us. We can analyze them out of existence, kill them, ban them, mock them, and still they return, patiently reminding us of who we are and what we wish we could be.

The whole monster week thing seems weird to me... It seems like filler, but they don't even need filler. Its OK to just not post anything AoS-specific for a week if they have nothing to announce. But maybe I'm wrong, was there a demand for this content?

I would have expected to see the Kurgoth/GUO sooner, same as the new Beast model,so I was disappointed to hear February as well. But some of the stuff coming sounds awesome, mounted armoured dudes for example

So we have Shadespire and firestorm in October, with only Shadespire bands for the rest of the year. January will see the beginning of Malign Portents with the four heroes and probably a deathrattle battletome. (At nova GW said nothing for deathrattle until after Christmas. )
This suggests that a nurgle battletome in February is very plausible. Then hopefully we will get Aelves and Slaanesh later in the year.
A new tidbit that I have not seen mentioned elsewhere is that Josh Reynolds is currently writing a Malign Portents tie-in novel. (Not officially announced yet but it comes from the horse's mouth on Twitter)
Malign Portents is being described by GW as the next big thing for AOS. Much more like the realmgate wars than blight war or firestorm.

The General’s Handbook 2017 is the definitive resource for Warhammer Age of Sigmar players, and we want to make sure that your games with it run as smoothly as possible. To this end, we’ve been listening to your feedback from your first games with it, and today we’re releasing an FAQ to answer some of the questions we’ve received. This should ensure your games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar are fun and friction free!



We’re committed to making sure that our games work as well as possible, and your feedback is invaluable – if you’ve got any more, or just fancy sharing how you’re enjoying the new General’s Handbook, let us know on the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Facebook page.

and day 4 of monster week :

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/09/07/aos-monster-week-day-4-sep-4gw-homepage-post-4/



I hate to complain, but some of us are work blocked from Warhammer Community. What is in the post?


apologies, but each day it's a new optional rule and/or battleplan involving monsters , it's a bit awkward to C & P it at times due to layout :



It’s Day 4 of Monster Week, and we’ve got even more free rules for you! Today, we’re giving you a new spell for your Wizards in Ghur, as well as a handy Command Ability for monstrous armies. As before, you’re free to use these in any of your games – just check with your opponent first!

Monstrous Phantasm allows you to summon any Monster to the battlefield as a spectral projection. This is a particularly handy spell, as the Monster can be from any faction – bring a devastating Aleguzzler Gargant to your Death armies, or perhaps a spectrally projected War Hydra for your forces of Chaos

Compel Beasts is a handy trait for armies with a lot of close combat monsters – we think it’s a great pick for a Lord-Celestant on Stardrake leading his Drakesworn Templars to war.


THE MAGIC OF GHUR
If you decide a battle is taking place in Ghur, the Realm of Beasts, then Wizards know the Monstrous Phantasm spell in addition to any other spells that they know.

MONSTROUS PHANTASM

The wizard links part of his own life force to a mighty spectral beast, which is summoned forth to strike down the caster’s foes.

Monstrous Phantasm has a casting value of 7+. If successfully cast, set up a Monster anywhere on the battlefield fully within 12” of the caster and more than 12″ from any enemy models.

At the end of each turn, you must take a special battleshock test by rolling a dice and adding the number of wounds allocated to that monster that turn. If the total exceeds the monster’s Bravery characteristic, the caster suffers D3 mortal wounds. In addition, if the monster is slain, the caster suffers D3 mortal wounds. If the caster is slain or flees, the monster is slain.

In pitched battle games, you do not need to pay reinforcement points for a monster summoned with this spell, nor does it count as a casualty for the purposes of victory if slain.

COMMAND ABILITY
If you decide a battle is taking place in Ghur, the Realm of Beasts, your general has the Compel Beasts command ability in addition to any other command abilities they have.

COMPEL BEASTS

Using his domineering presence, the general commands his bestial minions to assail the foe without hesitation or mercy.

If your general uses this command ability, then you can re-roll charge rolls for friendly Monsters that are within 12” of the general at the start of the charge phase.

Where better to test these new spells and command abilities than in another free battleplan? Unleash the Beast gives a defending army a powerful monster bound by magical energies – but should it break free, control switches to the attacking side!

You know, if the spell wasn't available to everyone, I'd say this was broken as hell, and it's still pretty ridiculous given the only qualifier is the Monster keyword. I do kind of like the idea of saying "Suddenly, Archaon!"

As Monster Week draws to a close, we thought we’d even the odds a little with some goodies for your Heroes. With so many monsters about, you’ll need a way to deal with them, and the Beastbane Artefacts are perfect. Our favourite is Trueflight, a lethal upgrade to ranged weapons that’s particularly deadly on Waywatchers – with a bit of luck, a single shot could deal 8 damage!


THE BEAST WARS

The Beast Wars saw the rise and fall of many monstrous creatures, from entities wise and noble despite their terrifying appearance, to fell behemoths of base intelligence that revelled in the wanton destruction left in their wake.

If you decide a battle is taking place in Ghur, the Realm of Beasts, then you can specify it is occurring during the Beast Wars. If your army has an allegiance and includes any Heroes, you can choose for one of them to bear a beastbane artefact instead of one of the artefacts of power that are normally available to them.

Finally, there’s yet another Battleplan for your games in the Realm of Beasts. In this battle, one player is a hunter and the other a beastmaster, designed to give flying units a particular edge.

If you’ve been enjoying Monster Week, we’ve collected all the rules from the past 5 days into one downloadable PDF; it’s basically an expansion’s worth of content, for free!

FAQs for Blightwar and Tamurkhan’s Horde now available

Blightwar has been out for a week now, and we want to make sure that your new units from the boxed set work as well as they can with your matched play armies. To this end, we’re releasing an FAQ that adds the “HERO” keyword to Neave Blacktalon.

That’s not all! Since we revealed the updated warscrolls for Forge World, we’ve had a lot of feedback from Tamurkhan’s Horde players looking to take their army into matched play games. We’ve decided that a full army of monstrous beasts of Nurgle was too awesome to pass up, and therefore we’re adjusting the matched play profiles for Plague Toads of Nurgle and Plague Ogors to make them Battleline choices, as well as providing the army with an allies table of its own. With some new Nurgle Allegiance abilities now available thanks to Blightwar, there’s never been a better time to start your own Tamurkhan’s Horde army.
