These guys grow on my everytime I see them- they are good conversion fodder to bridge the gap between untamed beats and iron golems into a unified dark oath horde. (Though to be clear, they ALL need some level of conversion to make it work)

It probably is a non-thaumaturge ogroid. Which is cool, we need more non-human, non-carryover from WFB races.
Anyway, I'm getting really good vibes from these two models, I just hope we get new chaos warriors too...

They're just chaos ogres.
Very nice ones, but still carry overs. (The thaumaturge and this new one). The... llama-sphinx or whatever is new.

It looks like it came out of the Never Ending Story or Dark Crystal, to be honest.

It bothers me that I can't tell if its supposed to be a chaos thing or a stormcast thing.

Except not really, they look nothing like ogre kingdoms ogres, and if anything are closer to beasts of chaos with digitigrade feet, hooves/claws and horns. And good thing too, there's few models as ugly as OKs.

I really doubt that they'll be called 'Chaos Ogres'. Most likely it's name will be something like 'Ogroid Whatchamacallit'.with the second word being some description of it's role (i.e., a fighter).

Somewhat reminiscent of the Lord-Aquilor's Gryph-charger but with some changes to the equestrian parts.

I'm fairly sure its chaos, it has the colour pallet of what GW would typically colour things for chaos. What I'm left wondering is what army it fits into. I'm wagering its a warcry beast, but hoping it fits into Slaves to Darkness. It is a think of twisted beauty though!

If it isn't one of the chaos forces then I'd wager its one of the "darker" forces - Daughters of Khaine, Dark Aelves (not yet I don't think )or similar. Ergo something "not nice"

Those are very cool. I'm looking forward to be able to use them in Warcry along with the Cyclops. I'm thinking the Slaves book will have a lot of options, as I'm guessing all these cool new Warcry beasties (and of course all the Warbands) will have profiles. A murderous horde of barbarians, magically imbued armor-encrusted warriors, mutants and monsters sounds like my kind of army.

They seem to be going an interesting direction with Warcry. Rather than expanding the core warbands, it appears that they are using the game to make really large Chaos monsters instead.

At some point in the near future, Warcry will just be kaiju the size of Archaon on Dorghar fighting it out.

It makes sense, the warbands are made to blend into Slaves to Darkness. With them already able to take Darkoath Queens and Tyrants and the like the "beasts" of the Wastes are the next best way to expand the game for all players at once rather than for each warband.

I wouldn't expect to see loads of new models for each warband.

I don't see a reason why the Ogroids couldn't be a warband.

Yeah, that's a given. I just don't see any point in indulging GW in the use of their ridiculous letter-swapped names for standard fantasy creatures.

What? I said they look like chaos ogres- referring particularly to the old metal one with the excessive horns. Except a lot better.
So, yes really- they look like chaos ogres.



Overread wrote:I'm fairly sure its chaos, it has the colour pallet of what GW would typically colour things for chaos

Blue-white with a bit of pink? The current StD and beasts ranges are mostly painted in metals and browns. Stormcast, on the other hand, have a lot of blues on mounts.
And it does look like the Aquilor's mount-thing.
If it isn't one of the chaos forces then I'd wager its one of the "darker" forces - Daughters of Khaine, Dark Aelves (not yet I don't think )or similar. Ergo something "not nice"

Tangent: Every piece of fiction I've read about stormcast has them wantonly murdering normal folk for being too close to chaos or death. Stormcast very much qualify as 'not nice' and 'dark.'

I actually had to go back and google those, since even back when they got released everyone agreed they looked horrible, and beyond the basic concept of a "big humanoid with horns", they are nothing alike.

We've seen that Ogroid's face before...

Ooh, I do like the look of that first creature. Pretty freaky.

The Minotogre also appears great overall, but the horns seem attached too high/far back. Could be the angle of the picture though.

Not that I expected the Ogroid to show up, but it isn't anything special in that we know what the race is supposed to look like from the sorcerer we already have. Only this one isn't blue but generic Chaos colors, and wearing generic Chaos fighter equipment. Nothing wrong with that either. The look is fine. Just basic.

The llama goat is more interesting to me as it gives us something new. Especially in the context of Warcry a single model like this contributes to the menagerie warbands can fight and subjugate. More than a fighty Ogroid when we already have a witchy Ogroid, especially considering the cyclops already provides a new smashy monster.

It's not as basic as that. The Ogroid is different in that he's AoSified like a number of other things, mashing two thing together to get something "new" (in this case ogres and minotaurs) in much the same way that gave us the lion goat from the Ghur warband. If that's your only measure, then yes, they're hardly the same thing. But that's a very superficial take.

That view completely disregards that they are both monstrous infantry stylistically tied in with the general human Chaos forces with a matching aesthetic for the equipment. And while we can't say yet as this is a Warcry release, it's not farfetched to think that Ogroids will have a similar function in a Slaves to Darkness army as Chaos Ogres once had in Warriors of Chaos.

And for the record, those old Chaos Ogres were never good but they still look better than the current plastic ogres.

Nehekhara lives! Sort of!

I don't think the Ogroids are beastmen, even if they look them.
They also bear a very, very strong resemblance to furies. The feet are different, but they have the same horn look

So a couple of the warbands for Warcry are awesome, I personally love the Unmade. And overall the miniatures for the game are awesome and the game is silly fun.

But if we're getting a Slaves to Darkness update in the near future, I'm gonna need to see some actual Chaos Warriors. Some multi-part kits with different head options and a diverse array of wargear options to kit them out.

Because the current kit is trash.

So, I'm wondering if each warband will get their own beast.
The Femoid clearly has Iron Golem designs. (The eye guard and even an IG helmet)
The Sphiranx goes with the Cypher Lords. (Noble looking, similar design elements, dangly braids)
The Ogroid could go well with the Spire Tyrants.

My gods that long necked beast looks even better! If its a one beast per warband and that's for the Untamed Beasts then I will be BEYOND HAPPY

I don't know what the Untamed Beasts beast could be, considering they like to eat everything. Maybe a bigger version of their lil lion?
Something snake related for the Poisoned Fangs and I guess a massive bird for the Cabal.

Or I could be totally wrong and all the monsters are just coincidentally related to certain warbands, especially since any warband can have access to them.
