I don't think it will be long until we see some expansion boxes for them. They promote the campaign system which requires you use more than you get with any of the current warbands and I can't imagine they'll want you just using duplicates over and over if they can sell alternate sculpts somehow.

Might seem a strange question, but can you confirm how many of the Unmade models are female? From the initial preview pics, it looked to me like 3-4 of them probably were, including the leader. But from the 360 degree views on GW's site, it looks like the leader is the only one, and I'm not even sure about that.

I really hope GW didn't decide it would be too risky/controversial/un-PC to give the sadomasochist extreme-body-modification warband any female members...

They've said they've got a lot more coming for the game, and something has to be holding up the Slaves to Darkness battletome...

I think it may be a ways off though. They have to release individual boxes for the Iron Golems and Untamed Beasts before they do anything else. It'll probably be monthly or bi-monthly releases, so it could be October before we see something new. And they probably won't release all six expansions at one time, so if they go with two boxes a month, somebody will be waiting until 2020 to see their upgrade pack. Throw in some Ravaged Lands and boxes of chaos beasts and they could spread it out over six or seven month.

Right behind you.

I'm thinking that we're likely to see a blister for each of the warbands with another Leader option and the first expansion book will likely do something with Champions(I've been going over the Core Book and can't find any mention of what that Runemark does? Maybe I just missed it).

I don't think we'll see any more Ravaged Lands once we get the ones out of the Core Box available.

The female members are:

-the leader
-the one leaping from a rock
-the one holding a spear with two hands
-the one running who has a fork instead of a left hand

(sorry, I don't know their names by heart )

There's also the icons for Gargantuan and Mounts and none of the current 15 warbands have these icons the Akhelian Guard don't even have the mounts icon.

I can see them stretching out the contents of the starter as separate releases plus the Spire Tyrants and Scions of Flame warbands and maybe another round of non-chaos cards to the end of year with the first "new" stuff coming next year.

Oh, cool! So it seems all the ones I originally thought were female from the previews actually are, despite the 360 views on the GW site (combined with the frankly awful paint scheme) confusing the issue. Thanks for the info!

(Seems a bit odd now that the two warbands in the starter box have fewer female members than any of the others...)

It might be hard to tell with the Iron Golems armor.

At the least they could make the inevitable champions or booster models female just to mix things up.

I'm still said we didn't get any actual snake people or Melusai styled models with the Splintered Fang. Or even just a giant snake beast that they could take along like the lion for the Untamed Beasts.

In fact I think a box of unique or multiple beasts would make for a cool expansion.

I really hope we get some more cool beasties in the game, though GW can already port over several from the current line like the Chimera, Cockatrice, wolves, razorboar etc... The fact that the wild beasts cards are based on points for the Warcry system means that so long as GW gives us rules and stats for them; we can pretty much add any beasties without issue.

It wouldn't even shock me if they did a "Giant" beast hunt expansion with perhaps one or two big beasts that form the focus of a dedicated hunt.


Warcry has loads of potential for it so I really hope we see expansions and I'd love to see Forgeworld take a hand and make some AoS stuff for it - heck I'd like FW to make Something for AoS since so far they've only made a handful of stormcast heads (the Chaos dragon is technically End Times/AoS merger since it took so long to get finished - plus its right up there with titans in being quite unaffordable/not jutsifiable for many)

Yes! This NEEDS to be in warcry! That way how good the models surrounding it look will transfer over by osmosis!

I kid, of course. It seems like a great excuse to re-do some of those old beast sculpts IMO. New warhounds anyone?

I'd welcome new cockatrice that aren't finecast! And I say that owning three of them already.

You can already do fun things with the non chaos warbands. Taking undead miniatures as "chaotic beasts" in the graveyard terrain is very thematic, IMHO. And I can see using gryphhounds and aetherwings the same way with the Stormvaults.terrains.

I just use the adequate aptitude cards with them, and it works perfectly fine.

About the chaos warbands, I like the Cypher Lords like this :

Actually that reminds me - for those with the Stormcast cards - can you do a team of just aetherwings and gryph hounds?!

Still would need a leader for the warband. Unless we get some Gryph hound primes or some such.

Maybe we can get a wild chicken horse!

I too would love to figure out a almost pure beast group.

They want to get really fancypants about it, they could do beast boxes based on the various realms.

Cheapest Leader is the Hunter Prime that leaves 790 points for hounds and/or Aetherwings so you could get 4 Hounds and 4 Aetherwings with 10 points to spare. You could model up a counts as Hunter Prime use an eagle perhaps put it on a 40mm base and paint it like an Aetherwing.

Totally agree, it is a great tool and really easy to use. Good work by the team that created it.

That may be my favorite thing about NuGW: they've been getting really good at app integration recently. Still wish they would come up with one for Warhammer Quest and Blackstone Fortress. I know they already have an app for Warhammer Quest, but it's basically just a digital version of the character cards. They should do something like the FFG's Mansions of Madness app that functions as a DM.

Hmm...

I haven't taken a close look at the cards needed, so I don't know how well it would fit. But I'm getting a sudden urge to do a Tomb Kings "counts as Legions of Nagash" force.

At the very least, the models themselves are available if you've still got the old GW figs (assuming that your group imposes GW-only requirements on the models used).

I just played against that today: Tomb Kings used as Legions of Nagash. Looks great !

Hadn't thought of using Tomb Kings as Nagash stand ins. Good idea.

I was thinking of using Mollog's Mob to use as some extra Squigs. Not so sure I can get away with Mollog himself yet.

I may have to grab another Corbus Cabal box though. Those familiars are fun to screw with your opponents and keep them pinned in combat.

Plus since the Shrike isn't an elite or leader unit, might as well grab another to beat down my opponents with.

Looking forward to seeing what the Scions and the Tyrants look like plus more cards for other factions/warbands.

Built up a small Nagash force using some normal skellies and some shadespire stuff. Might look into adding some Tomb Kings for some unique looks in matches.

I think the only difference will be that you don't have access to skeleton bowmen since Vampire Counts don't have them and that Tomb Guard with halberds have shields compared to Grave Guard with great weapons not having any. That said, the sword and halberd models are easy to tell apart, so I don't expect that to be confusing to your opponent.

I should probably buy the card pack in case I want to do that down the line. You never know how long those are going to stick around.

Does anyone have anything further on this? Supply doesn't seem to be drying up as fast as say, Looncurse.

I'm also wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the longevity of the scenery sets - didn't Kill Team lose one of its environment boxed sets very quickly?
