Fimir would be an awesome evil army for destruction. Hobgoblins wouldn't be as awesome, though I've long wished we could get some models for them. Yes the fimir lore did involve sexual assault, but so does landsknecht lore, they still put one front and center on the cover of the Cities of Sigmar army book.

Tangentville, New Jersey

So, a week of Warhammer fest and the only things that got my attention are (some) of the undead, a nice Tanith set I won't buy, and a few of the Orks because they're RT/2nd Ed call- backs (and I don't even play Orks).

I'm glad there were more bright spots for others but this seriously could have been condensed into a one-day event or a "Warhammer Weekend" 2 day thing.

EDIT: Oh, and a well-executed but long overdue Cadian sprue that's practically an after thought.

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.


Swamp goblins would be a bit disappointing :/

OH! Maybe they are bringing back boglars! https://warhammerfantasy.fandom.com/wiki/Boglars That would be awesome (if only because I already own something like 300 gnoblar minis lol), that would fit pretty well with the Fimir too

Ah, come on. We got a crucial information in the interview : double turn stays in 3rd edition of AoS, but they will give more advantages to the player choosing to go second (apparently, you gain more command points for one). Hope they also design all battleplans to be more incentive to go second as well.

The new Stormcast Eternals...will wait until I see them all, but I'm glad they're still looking simple to paint and they have both genders.

I'm excited for the Core Battalions. I am hopeful it will make some of the battalion-light armies more useable. Skaven struggle with it, for instance.

I'm in the Fimir-camp! This rumour-pic could very well be a Fimir-foot, ruins looks like a match for Yndrasta's base. They mentioned her base as an indicator during the stream.

Right its official, AoS has so much more and better plastics churned out at high speeds than 40k, for some time now.

The new Stromcast kick so much ass! Nice minis I hope that the angel is Stromcast proportion and not giant proportions though. A cool model to buy for sure, if at right size.

Cover is great and Fimir? Woooot? Now that would a nice box set.

I’m down for more AoS, and indeed more Stormcast.

But to only tease their opponent?

I can only think it’s because their foe is a spoiler for the end of Kragnos.

Irritating all the same.

That was my suspicion as well. Hopefully Kragnos is out soon.

Are stormcast now pushing space marines for their title of most kits? Surely beat primaris alone already now.

Nowhere near enough. Last main-line Stormcast model released was 2018 (and one named hero this year). People love to complain, but there's been nearly 3 years of no stormcast.

I'm moderately excited:
The lady looks way better than optimus prime and less swirly bullgak on her. The vindicators look like a MASSIVE step up from the frankly horrid (and I used to have 20 of them, I know it!) liberator models. They have actual human proportions instead of barrelchests and squatlegs, and their armor looks functional (for fantasy armor). Even the helmets look a bit better (still not a massive fan but it's an improvement). The paladin shown isn't terrible either.

I just hope they actually learned from their mistakes rules-wise and they aren't as pillow-fisted and easy to kill in CC as they used to be, it was sad seeing goblins out-fight Sigmar's Finest.

They probably want to build the hype over several months, so they’ll drip feed us info. Maybe they’re aiming for a new record of how many minutes the launch box will take to sell out?

Frontier (they of the mediocre management games and Elite) are working on an Age of Sigmar RTS, it was announced a fair old while ago.

Let me destroy that hope for you: Frontier Development (developers of Elite: Dangerous) have the exclusive license to non-mobile Age of Sigmar RTS games.

Due to the machinations of Be’lakor, the souls of Stormcast Eternals are no longer guaranteed to return for their reforging – but thunderstrike armour is wrought expressly to give them the power to pierce the supernatural clouds hanging over the realms and make their way safely back to Azyr.

This is a perfect example of how bad the writing is these days.

The storyline advances and creates a new problem, which is immediately solved by way of something which happens to be a new kit. They are literally the same thing as primaris, just in a very slightly different package.

I need to remind myself this game is primarily aimed at 13 year olds.

I'm fine with using the story to justify new kits but would have preferred they took a different route.

Because they can't teleport back the new kits represent a more weary on campaign look. Think Questing Knight meets Stormcast.

Allows Be'Lakor's victory to not be immediately discounted while still justifying new plastic to sell.

Pretty whelming reveal. AoS 3rd was strongly rumored, but I had hoped for a little extra. New stormcast are a vast improvement and I'm happy for whomever is invested in them.

Good eye! That is definitely the same style stonework. Weirdly, the face is different on the base for Yndrasta. I wonder why.

Thats because of the whole art-and-miniatures-first development process. They came up with some new Stormcast sculpts featuring an entirely new style of armor and some writer was tasked with having to write an explanation for why.

I really like that Stormcast lady as is, but I’m quite happy to have found the base for my Sisters of Battle Saint. I don’t like Celestine’s robo wings and I was struggling to find feathered wings that could fit her.

They might, literally half of the new Thunder Force Armoured Sigmarines have boobplate armor, look closely: they are the golden and black coloured ones.

Funny, I'll be replacing the feathered wings with mechanical ones on mine.

I mean, you don't have to look for boobplate. The female Stormcasts have noticeably different body proportions.
