She's mentioned in passing a few times in novels that had Order of the Fly characters, and makes a cameo appearance in The Plague Garden novel. The voice seems too smooth and perfect for a Nurgle character though. I'll have to find the relevant part in The Plague Garden and reread how her voice is described.

Neferata is the safe bet though!

The Lady of Cankerwall is also a compassionate character (in the Nurgle sense), like a grotesque version of a Brettonian damsel. I'm thinking Neferata or an Aelf from an upcoming army.

Or Slaanesh finally gets a named greater Daemon; Morathi.


Oh no, don't tell me something happened to good, old N'Kari.

If only... The thing that happened to Kugath might tough.

Might be a deamon princess, but named KoS will most likely be 40k compatible.


It's strange that Kairos and Skarband are still around, Ku'gath too in the 40k fluff (and heavily), but not in AOS. There, Epidemius is still around, and we got Horticulous and Rotigus also.

So really for N'kari everything is possible.
I can see why Ku'Gath didn't get rolled into the GUO kit. He is carried around on a palanquin of Nurglings and has an alchemical lab with him. That would be a whole extra sprue at least. Epi, Horty, & Rotigus are in both 40k and AoS. Ku'Gath hasn't been seen in AoS fluff afaik, but he featured heavily in the End Times.

The Tomb Kings still exist (iirc, at least one map has a reference to what is clearly a group of them). And if there's one Tomb King character that has interests away from the rest of the bunch, it's Khalida.

But I doubt that GW is going to even hint that she exists anytime soon.


It's a shame, both because the TK are pretty cool thematically, and it'd be fun to have a group of undead who openly tell Nagash to his face to go get stuffed. Of course, that last bit might be part of the reason why GW isn't going to update them for AoS.

Well that's a reason the Flesh Eater Court aren't under Nagash's command. They are living creatures and not under his control so they can oppose or ally with him. It's likely that's what the next Death faction will be able to do as well to give them diversity.

The map reference is the Obsidian Monarchy by the way, they destroyed a invading Ogor army with their chariot heavy force.

Really enjoying the stories

Hoping Josh R writes more about the lady of cankerwell (and Neferata - he really made her come to life - so to speak) although the short "The Dance of the Skulls" was also good..

Deep ? Like deep one ? CTHULU AELF CONFIRMED

No really, joke aside, we have many reason to speculate about Aelves :

- First, hints in the background since the AOS launch in 2015 about Shadow Aelves, Ulgu, Malerion, Fate of Slaanesh, etc.

- Then, this rumor from a quite reliable source (cf. Daemons and Custodes) about an April-May-June Aelf release. Also Phil Kelly saying we'll see "soon" a new proper AOS faction like KO.

- Finally, this video (talking about gods, snake-like hissing voice, the moon at the end being like the Mistweaver Saih staff's symbol, etc.), that text zammerion just quoted, a feminine, languorous voice and the promises of torment.



It all sounds veeery Shadow aelf-y to me.

Trying to come up with something clever with new foe but ancient enemy, but drawing a blank. It would help if we knew who's nemesis.

@Voss

Why wouldn't Moratghi work ?
Not counting the female voice, the promises of torment and the shadow / moon / etc. references...

... She was indeed an old enemy of everyone back in WFB, and she hasn't reappear in AOS yet (I mean model wise or in the current story), so she's "new".

What do they mean by ancient enemy? I don't know anything about the Old World or End Times, so is this someone from that time period or is it someone from the Age of Sigmar time period?

But we are talking about a video in which the creature seeing Elias has a female voice. That's not Nagash case (I hope).

Also Nagash is already there (as is Neferata) ; the "ancien nemesis / new foe" means it's someone from WFB/Age of Myth. coming back in AOS right now.

The video's description "From the shadows, a new foe emerges. An ancient nemesis is returning to the world of Warhammer, and the mystery of the Malign Portents deepens. Watch the epilogue and prepare for the reign of shadow..." should at least mentions 1-2 times Death if it was big Nagash

That's not clear yet, and probably won't be until the character is unveiled.

But Morathi is a pretty good guess given the information that we know for reasons that are mentioned above.


Other notable "missing" old enemies could include Slaanesh (probably not yet; note that Morathi has been aligned with Slaanesh for a very long time, so a Morathi reveal could be the lead-in to the reintroduction of Slaanesh), or the Tomb Kings (who were aligned against everyone; but GW no longer supports them, and the voice described wouldn't fit with them).

I'd love any Aelf reveal soon, but as much as I want it, let's hold our horses. With GW it's better to follow the Occam's razor. Most probably it's just Neferata, introducing her in all the MP events. This reminds me of all this late Custodes thing, people mindwanking themselves with completely crazy stuff just to be disappointed later.

Changing topic, just found these in Artstation, dunno if have been posted already with this quality:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Malekith merging with his dragon make him female? Isn't that Malerion?

Because a female from the realm of Shadows would scream Malekith/Malerion. After all, Malekith was the Incarnate of Shadow... Plus, Old World Dark Elves were the ones you pray didn't take you alive.

...I...don't...think so? I...guess it never occured to me that Seraphon was female and that might make a difference. It's not like Malerion is particularly 'humanesque' anymore either.

Just looked it up. Malerion is male, so it's still either neferata or Morathi

I was recently corrected on that very thing; Malekith didn't fuse with his dragon at all. It was just a rumor that didn't actually play out.

Looking over the new Nurgle stuff coming for Sigmar, it's got me wondering if they're going to get point values for the Skirmish rules.

I know the new Battletome has Pitched Battle values, but I prefer smaller battles.

Yeah, that was a 1d4chan thing. His mount Seraphon is never mentioned, he just finds himself changed, it's likely his new form is the result of going through the realm of chaos to reach the mortal realms as the other gods had and suffered for it as had they in different ways.

As for the shadow hint, I'm still skeptical. Just seems WAY too early for it if the Aelven releases are still so far away.

He didn't fuse with his dragon. And before anyone brings the image in question please read the flavor text where it's stated that he is, essentially, FORMLESS (in other words: he's shapeshifting and takes the form that pleases him the most).
