It is a little goofy, but it looks like he took notes from Polyphemus before heading out to battle, to which I say: smart move.


Ideally the kit offers a choice of heads. GW kits aren't exactly overflowing with options these days, but head options are perhaps the most significant and widely spread, so I guess there's a chance for that to happen.

For my part I can say the eye protection was the first thing I noticed about it that took me a moment to make the connection and realize I'm looking at a cyclops. I thought it would be better not to hide that feature under a piece of metal. At least not on the first of its kind that was going to establish the race's look.

Well at least that clears up the Vanguard monster and allies runemark issue and it confirms that they reversed the Everchosen Move and Toughness values by mistake. Nighthaunt Allies also get the fly runemark

I see that they turned the Darkoath Chieftain's Deathblow ability from a double to a quad. That ability was way to strong as a double.

Spire Tyrants complete with Dwarf and Bestigor

Not only do we get to explore more of the aesthetic of the Varanspire – first seen in the Varanguard – we also get to see another duardin and a bestigor! You’ve been patiently anticipating the arrival of the Spire Tyrants, and you won’t have to wait much longer before this awesome new warband can be yours.

Dude with net, the beastigors, and the Duardin are the best one.

Mixed feelings on these, I like at least 3 of them but overall not particularly impressed. I kinda felt the same about a couple of the other warbands though, before I saw them unpainted in person.

Loving that Bestigor. I was hoping for a bit more armor on these guys, but they look the part pretty well. I will probably pick them up eventually (read when I get my other 4 Warbands done....I'm just finishing the Iron Golems).

I like the girls. I thought I'd like the beastman, too, when I caught a glimpse in the video. His spiky mace is great, but there's something about the helmet shape and the chain cloak that look off to me.

The rest is... standard fare? Not good, not bad, just Chaos Marauders.

I like the not-pit fighter with morning star and top knot. The rest are okay. For being the closest to glory *and* attention seeking gladiators they look...the most vanilla and unassuming.


Besides I refuse to buy any more Chaos barbarians until my box Godsworn Hunt turns back up. Filthy yokels disappeared after a brutal loss to the Profiteers and now they're missing, somehow D:

What is this supposed to be? A restock list? Delivery lis? Because it's a wild mix between existing kits (Warcry teams), kits we know will come (Rohan house, Tome of Champions), and wishlisting (StD stuff).

Huh. If this leak is true they must be reboxing the Warcry gangs for AoS? I don't see why they would be listed otherwise. I also believe the Ogre Team was named "Fire Mountain....something something...." so this could very well be fake.

All the Warcrybands already have rules for Slaves to Darkness so it wouldn't surprise me. GW already reboxes the Underworld content and for them they have to put them into a different box and leave out the cards.

So reboxing for AoS with Slaves on the front makes full sense. That would be 8 new warbands and the 1 new beasty all for Slaves at launch - along with spells and a Tome that's a BIG chunk of models.

I did think GW would want all of AoS with Battletomes and Slaves are the last army without a Tome. Squeezing them in late (accepting that everything got pushed a month or two forward due to Sylvaneth delays) but still that's really great to see.




Darn it now I want a box of slaves.

Except with warcry you have a lot less cards than with underworlds, so it would hardly cut any cost from the box set.

What you're missing out on is that there's also a packaging angle to consider.

When the Easy to Build sets for Underworlds come out, they're released in standard AoS packaging versus the Underworlds specific packaging for recognizability--then they go to Direct Only. The same thing is possible here.

Indeed, its basically just putting the same models in a different box. Surprised that GW hasn't done duel boxes and cut the cost in half for them with duel branding of AoS and Warcry. Unless that is their plan and they'll just let stock of warcyr only boxes dwindle.

Well, since cards are not done in house (and seem that they might be more an issue in terms of getting printed than simply boxes) having sets without them probably means the ability to make restocks more easily even if it doesn't trim that much in cost

It seems unlikely they would repackage for a Slaves to Darkness battletome while there are still unreleased gangs.

With the Spire Tyrants coming out, there would be just one left...and it's possible they aren't intended to be a Slaves to Darkness force but rather would be associated with Tzeentch Arcanites.

I don't think so since one of the key aspects to the Warbands is that they are not tied to specific gods. Clearly some are closer to certain gods as opposed to others, but the idea is that quite a few worship gods who are not even one of the four Chaos Gods. Untamed Beasts, for example, worship their own god who is a god of destruction that is seeking to destroy all civilisation and settlement. Now in the lore the idea is that the power behind that god is one of the agents of the four great chaos gods. So it might be a Bloodthirster or Keeper of Secrets pulling the strings; and each different tribe might even have different greater demons pulling the strings on them.

The Warbands also all have the cultist keyword which I think is likely to replace the "mark of chaos" ability. Meaning that GW just has to print the cultist details in the battletome once rather than reprint mark details on every single warscroll.

Minor quibble but we don't have the rules yet for the flamey guys in AoS proper.

We don't have anything for the Flameyguys - not even a photo or rumour. So they could come later. That or GW might even squeeze them in much like they did with Ogors - a basic surprise release alongside.

Otherwise its only one warband and we all know its coming.

It might not look particularly shiny, but there's nothing to stop GW from releasing the Spire Tyrants and... flamey guys as model only boxes in line with the repackaged other gangs with a splash release of separate warband cards. They might even do that with the first run boxes using Warcry box covers and further runs switching to Age of Sigmar.

It's notable that Warcry existed for only two months give or take before GW announced the rule book with the warband rules in it after initially being entirely card based rules for the game's factions. I can't say I have much faith in the way Warcry is presented by GW and I don't think we can rule out drastic changes in that regard.
