Those models look fantastic. I'm just worried they're all going to be 8 foot tall uber humans. I sure wish they'd go back to normal scale for AoS.

But they'll be a great pack of ogres if they end up being in 40mm scale!

I play...

Sigh.

Who am I kidding? I only paint these days...

If they are "ogor" sized, I wonder how big the Iron Golem's ogor will be? We've got AOS skulls and gut plates, but this is our first actual ogor

I don’t think these look Ogor sized.
Just thick set human sized. Obviously a little taller than the regular human size in that warband, but doesn’t look like it’s by much.

I'm thinking they will be a mix between Kairic acolytes and darkoath chieftain in size.

guys, horned helms would be sure fire neck breakers in combat anyway. There is a very good reason they were never used in reality. They looks cool but they are nto practical.

and those horns would interrupt any two handed weapon stroke except for horizontal stroke aimed at waist height. ANy other stroke would require that the blad pass through the space occupied by the horns either at the beginning of the stroke or end of the stroke.

I figured Untamed Beasts would be the only bone themed warband. But what about the warband of Shyish? I imagine they'd use scythes, and bones, and whatever else

Released in July.

The Splintered Fang

These guys might hail from the Realm of Life, but they’ve got nothing but death for their foes! And snakes – lots and lots of snakes. These guys show off facets of Chaos rarely seen on the tabletop, as one of the insidious murder cults who use cunning as much as brute force to claim victory. Just like with the Iron Golems and Untamed Beasts, the Splintered Fang show off new aspects of Chaos – there’s even an aelf amongst them!

Those harpies/furies or hyrpies/fyries or whatever they are look great! I will likely buy too many boxes of them.

The splintered fang also have a great classic sword and Sorcery look to them. Some of their arms strike me as a little weird or off, but I'm still a fan. They have the advantage of using real weapons instead of meat tenderizers (iron golems give lots of bruises!) or jawbones (not actually great weapons irl), so my money is on them in "WarCry: Belt buckle throw down!"

The chicken thing's wings just look awful.

Fairly nice. The scale armor looks good (thouh triggers an anachronistic response in my head, especially with the lack of boots).

Actually the lack of shoes just bothers me. It works on the bone tribe, but between those bases and the functional metallurgy and alchemy/chemistry these guys have, you'd think they'd value feet protection

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

They're styled after Roman gladiators so no shoes makes sense.

I love the black gladiator guy. INCREDIBILIS!

There's 3 left.

It's going clockwise, based upon this:

It started at Adepticon with the Iron Golems, then we saw the Untamed Beasts at the Australian Open, and today we saw the Splintered Fang. We have the UK Wargames Expo in May still, and then we have June for the final bits to come out--with the release in July.


Bonus: here's the 'extras'. 3 Death(Soulblight, Nighthaunt, and Flesh Eater Courts), 3 Order(Daughters of Khaine, Devoted of Sigmar, Idoneth), and 2 Destruction(Ironjawz and Gloomspite Gitz)...which means there's one missing because it's supposed to be 9 non-Chaos factions.

There are 3 destruction in that picture.
One death is missing.

Certainly my favourite model to come out of AoS, easily besting the 2H axe Slaughterpriest. The pose is marvelous.

I admit it, I LOVE gladiators. This is a gift from the gods to me. It's like Arena Rex in the right scale and easy to modify plastic.

PS: Untamed Beasts vs. Splintered Fang -> who will be the first to create a Conan vs. Thulsa Doom diorama?

Looking for a Skaven Doomwheel banner to repair my Nurgle knights.

Splintered Fang coming from the Realm of Life surprised me. Snakes and venom make me think of Ulgu, especially since Morathi is the biggest snake thing we have in AoS (Sorry Seraphon.)
I'm guessing the flayed skin will be ulgu then, if not Shyish? (They'll have that scythe rumor engine I'm betting)

No shoes never makes sense. Ugly, vulnerable slabs of meat.

Mam warcry looks cool. Everything looks great so far (bar the ugly chicken thing, how that thing passed quality control, ill never know, and a few cultist).

And more importantly, its a test of nugw capacity of making a new good exciting game and setting. They mostly only revived old games in tje last few years

Yeah. Like. Crested helmets with gladiator feel? COUNT ME IN.

That black skinned female gladiator under the elf in the pic of the cabinet? I believe is my favourite one of the bunch.

Snake guys aren't for me. Nice enough I guess, but not what I'm looking for.

Well, I like the actual snakes.

We have eight Realms and six warbands. Azyr is obviously out because it's the no fun allowed Realm, but if I had to guess I'd also say that Shyish is the other Realm that's not represented. It wasn't the most friendly Realm to mortals before Nagash went off he deep end, and certainly hasn't improved since. Further I'd guess the eye is Hysh, the bird skull Ulgu and the flayed skin Aqshy, mostly because they have a history of savagery and cannibalism.

Nehekhara lives! Sort of!

So at the seminar they mentioned that the 6 Chaos warbands are all new sculpts. They will get AoS warscrolls likely with the Slaves to Darkness keyword. There should be minis for other races that have fallen to Chaos like the Ogor, Aelf and Duaradin

The 9 other warbands will not get minis and will use the current AoS range. They plan to add new warbands for each grand alliance at a later date.

Kill Team is a good pointer for the number minis per side. Some will be more elite some less so, so warband sizes will vary.

I think we'd see a Shyish Warband before we see a Hysh. Though, it would be cool if they were all blinded. Not like Namartai reavers, aka, no eyes, but rather had to mutilate their eyes to avoid the blinding light of Hyish. Still, I'm thinking that the scythe would still be for a Shyish group. Maybe undead chaos followers? Or at least, Necromancers?

Unrelated, but it's pretty cool that we now have a: Chaos Dwarf, Chaos Ogre, and now a Chaos Elf.

I love these guys. To be fair I love all the factions they have previewed for Warcry thus far.

Now we have warbands from Metal, Beasts, and Life.

Geifer is onto something with the Bird Skull being Ulgu, though I think the flayed face is Shyish. Maybe the eye is Hysh.

Also worth noting that in the video introducing Warcry the art at the beginning showed a warband fighting the Iron Golems that had "spiked rings" around their heads similar to the symbol of the flayed face. I'm guessing the warband in that art is what the models from that faction will look like.
