The guy with the snakes is probably my favourite model they previewed today, and my favourite for Warcry.

They said in the Q&A that the non Chaos factions are just rules for existing models to start with, but ‘who knows what the future holds for them’.

I love Kill Team and rarely get a chance to play full-on AoS. With how good it feels to have fully painted Kill Teams, I think I am going to jump in on this. Just looks fantastic.

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?


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.


Speaking of helmets...the Idoneth have some very gladiator-ish ornamentation on their panzy heads.

The lord on deepmare with a few modifications (like a snake head or three for the mare) -> Lord of Slaanesh on steed, now that GW dropped the model. The Warcry dudes for marauders, snake leader (?) as a sorceror. A DoK Medusa as a spawn or hero or whatever (someone sell me one, please ). Nice little Skirmish warband.

If the other bands are as good Warcry would be the best thing to happen to Fantasy Chaos in quiiite some time.

Hysh and Shyish bands would both be awesome, I like the idea of blinded Chaos acolytes. I mean, we got ornamental poisonors for Ghyran! I would've expected, I don't know, maybe Nurgle stuff given his antics there, so they're hopefully imaginative with the rest as well.

The hooded guy is my favorite. His danger noodles have poison on both ends (fangs and scorpion tails lol)

I hope there are more trident or spears available I think the ones with shields would look much better with spears.

Danger noodles... or nope ropes? But seriously, really pushing the bar for chaos with these miniatures. With the AoS setting they really had the opportunity to diversify tribal chaos marauder types, and man are they running with it now.

I'm in for the figures, more than likely not the game. Excellent figures for all manner of fantasy gaming though. I hope the cost is reasonable (Shadespire gangs have been very reasonable thus far - not something I can often say about a GW product)

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.


Non-Chaos factions using AoS models was to be expected. Did they confirm that it's actually going to be nine and not just the eight we saw in the announcement video? People assuming it's going to be three per Grand Alliance have a good point, but I haven't read any account of GW correcting the video yet.

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)


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.


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 expect the scythe is AoS proper, probably belonging to the next Mortarch. GW had an article that outright said one of Nagash's pals was locked away in a stormvault, and we got to see artwork of Olynder trying to release him.

Agreed on different races for Chaos worshippers. Adds a bit of fun having all sorts of stuff besides humans.

I'm working (very slowly) on a Skirmish band of gladiators styled after Egyptian gods - inspired by the DoK background of gladiatorial pits in Order cities. They are likely Tzeentchian in nature, but don't tell they city guard The goal was to have everyone in a different size and body shape, with different weapons.

I really hope Warcry gives us the tools to port stuff like this into the game. The kits are supposed to have weapon options, right? Hopefully gameplay is good.

The snake guy leader is a little absurd, but the rest are awesome. This game is becoming increasingly difficult to avoid.

40k proper drove me away from GW awhile back, but its stuff like this and Necromunda that keeps me around. These specialist games have been scoring big.

I'm really hoping this will be a way to get my Orcs, Skaven, and Stormcast off the shelf. They were all painted up for Age of Sigmar skirmish, but noone local has any interest in it. I have used them successfully for home games One Page Rules and even Song of Blades and Heroes, but Warcry gives me hope, as there is a local scene for Killteam, locally, so maybe there will be for Warcry.

Would be great to play a skirmish game where I don't have to paint both sides and create all the scenery just to play. If need be, the Feral boys will be mine.

Same; I tried to start some Skirmish at my local GW, but the same exact 3 guys there always try to control 40k everything and I couldn’t spark up interest (I even brought 5 ready-made war bands from home).

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

I believe it's 2 sets of those sprues in the starter box for 6 of each. No indication yet if they will be available separately.

Some more images from Garros facebook including unpainted minis and alt schemes. I think that Iron Golem with the helmet off is someones own conversion but at least it looks easy to do as I'd like a few without helmets. Iron Golems are my least favourite so far but it looks like they are in the starter.

Doesn't seem like the Warcry warbands will be multipart in the sense of different wargear or posing options :(

Splintered Fang look awesome though, and a great paint scheme they chose. Tempting...

I dunno about that... It is part of a starter/larger boxed set so there is a strong incentive both to conserve sprue space and to make the contents as straightforward as possible. And anything they did would have to be different enough to distinguish them from simply Slaanesh-marked furies. One could say any kit is a 'missed opportunity' to have it dual build with something else, for that matter.

TBF unless it were a very solid/heavily padded boot it would not do much against a hammer being dropped on it, bludgeoning force and all. Such a boot would no doubt be a hindrance when climbing over all the nice new terrain!

Is the helmetless head a conversion?

It look's a lot like the Blood warrior head from Magore's fiends, but that head is yelling. And I don't think it's from another blood warrior set.

Regular releases barely have that anymore, boxed sets like this were definitely unlikely to.

Pretty sure it's been confirmed that they are. Posing is difficult/limited unless you want another catachan boxed set but there's different weapon options.

I'm not sure if we got that pic during the reveal, but they definitely used close-ups from that set up in the announcement video. I could have definitely missed it if we got the whole thing.

Also those Iron Golems with the alternate paint scheme look really nice.

It seems like GW will be releasing at least three warbands at launch (or maybe the third two weeks after launch). I'm really happy they are taking this approach. Part of what hurt Necromunda in my area was the drip feed of rules and warbands. I'm hoping we see all 6 Warbands around release, or at least like Shadespire with the Starter and then two more bands a few weeks later. If the rest of the warbands look anywhere near as good as the first three we are in for a treat.

I hadn't seen all of it together in one shot until today.

Most of it was just solo shots, and this is, I believe, is the first where all of it is shown together in one photo.
