That rulebook cover makes me so envious of what chaos daemons should actually look like... Non aligned but scary as feth chaos daemons would be so awesome.

It's pretty damn great cover. Properly dynamic, lots of detail, great composition and it has very nice feel of texture.

Agreed - the first editon was not good, second was better and this is stunning.

So Stormcast vs Skaven or Shadow Daemons for the boxed set ?

I was watching without sound and was hoping for a CoS reveal after that little trailer.....

New Stormcast look nice, would have been nice to see the opposing faction too. Don’t know why they hyped this up as a mystery day. Could have just said AoS.

So "new evil" = new faction? Nighthaunt was introduced at start of the 2nd edition so it easy to think they would something new.

As they talked about new edition based in realm of beasts I am going for it being new Destruction aligned faction.

If it is Fimir I will totally buy the box. at the moment I just plan on waiting for one or two of the new spear storm casts to show up on ebay, but I would reward the re-introduction of Fimir with a true purchase.

...why?

Also, I LOLed hard seeing Phil Kelly looking down his nose in the interview that was bizarrely filmed from 45 degrees below straight-on. If that was intentional, I give major props to whoever did it.


I thought that was bizarre, is he really tall or something?

Agreed. The whole Bog/Mire/Fen thing was also a pretty odd "hint", I can only assume its referring to Fimir as I can't think of anything else warhammer related that shares a close association with swampy landscape. IIRC AoS Fimir are Destruction, yes? Destruction could use some help.

That's a bizzarely reasonable look for the Stormcast. The spearmen look almost functional.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

I mean, Fimir are kind of notorious/infamous for their old fluff about how they breed and reproduce....

Sigmar is pretty awesome at the moment, I think its generally in a better place than 40k is. Not sure why you would think otherwise.

Having a new Avatar of Destruction appear right before the new edition does lead me to believe that the faction opposed to the new Stormcast are going to be Destruction. It's also their "turn", as it were, to be the major villains, even if that's not how it works.

Kragnos needs something to stop him from sticking out like a sore thumb amongst all the other forces of Destruction, and the fact that the new Stormcast hero is a monster slaying specialist can only mean a monster-heavy enemy faction.

The rumours on TGA for a while are a new destruction army somewhere between Orcs and Goblins, like hobgoblins or something. Similar aesthetic to the goblin wolf riders. Speculation is its them who made the little totem thing on Kragnos’s base.

FW Fimir were Destruction GA before they went OOP.

Also, the Bog, Mire and Fen limerick screams Fimir. It pulls direct from an old 4th ed Fantasy quote.

"We spent our honeymoon at the family's summer house by the sea. One morning, when taking the air along the bluffs, the mist closed in. It was suddenly calm and strangely quiet. Then, out of nowhere… Bog Daemons! Huge, one-eyed, barrel-chested brutes. I was sent crashing to the ground with a swipe of a tail. Another bundled Greta up and threw her over its shoulder. Then they just vanished into the mist, as swiftly and as silently as they had appeared. I swear that is Verena's own truth."
—Oleg Grauhof, Reiklander Merchant, shortly before being hanged for the murder of his wife


Bog daemons. Disappearing into the mist.

Fimir it is.

AoS is the perfect opportunity to write out their more troublesome fluff.
