I'm not sure actually. She seems to have two anchor points in both her hand at the whip head on the base. So i think she'll actually be quite solid.

Does save time not having to paint multiple versions of same model at least. Since there's 2 weapons and 2 heads to show painted version of every combo they would need 4 models painted. Now with 1 with 2 alternative parts.

Crossbow Ghosts are sweet, and perhaps the only real true surprise of the whole event (well them and Big Red).

Love the Gladiatrix.

Basically every time one of these boxes comes out my mind starts racing with how I might use them in Warhammer Quest.

While that might be true, it doesn't explain the creative approach to basic human anatomy.

Then again, judging by the Daughter on the box cover, the elves do seem rather bendy...

As a huge lover of DoK masks, I like the new whip character.

But she's just a more dynamic sister of slaughter, which we already got from both Underworlds and Warcry.

Kind of surprised the Nighthaunt character is supposed to be a "He." It was giving me scary old lady vibes. Also, is this the first versus box that has easy to build models in it? The banshees are a really cheap unit

Last time i checked dok aren't humans. Could be wrong though but pretty sure they were elves.

I really appreciate the whip pose so that its got a sense of having a really long whip, but its far more contained. It's not like the Deamonette riding a Prince where the whip is a massive monstrosity of long lengths of fragile plastic.

That said I do agree that DoK could do with something "fresh" in their lines. Perhaps a cheaper generic cavalry unit; chariots; winged mounts. Spear elves (they've got two on the cauldron); war engines (there's at least two kinds of anti infantry artillery mentioned in stories such as the Morathi expansion book).

Then again I'm almost feeling like GW doesn't quite know what to do with DoK. Or rather what to do with the remains of the Dark Elves. They've pushed them together in the recent book, but DoK are an AoS force built on a specific theme and style of play and style of models. Allying in the old DE army content is fantastic and I'm sure classic fans of the army love it (heck DE are almost all there barring one or two leader models and the Reaper Bolt Thrower). However I do wonder if its something GW experimented with to see how the market reacted with thoughts that if we didn't go wild for it, they'd shelve the DE at some point. Much like the He got shelved and then we got Lumineth; I'd wager we'll see the DE remains shelved as Cities of Sigmar get more fleshed out and as Malarion's forces make an appearance.

Looks like I'll be picking up a couple of the DoK half sets on eBay. NH is definitely the focus of this set, so they should go for under $90 or so.

They've gutted the FW range of models for AoS several times now, models that had no problem and weren't old or anything have been removed in swathes.

That said they've also had glitches on their site for ages that miss-list things as sold out or last chance all the time. It's been there for ages, apparently we only noticed it in a big way in the lats year or so because of covid running stocks down quicker than they can replace them.

I also think that sometimes/many times FW stuff runs out of stock and they have to fight to get it funded for a new mould and approved. So it could be that some of that is the internal workings and politics coming to the fore.


I do think that Vorgaroth has been there before and returned; I'd be surprised as its the second newest AoS model (the newest being the stormcast heads); but its impossible to predict if it is accurate or not.

Note emailing the FW staff is sometimes more reliable than GW staff - the FW email seems to go direct to actual FW staff themselves (not to customer service staff) and they tend to be a touch more aware of things going on the background. General GW customer service staff tend to run on whatever the websites says and don't know/are not allowed to comment on anything going on in the backgorund that might be different from that information. So if you do want the model do consider dropping FW an email - at the very least emails show interest and that can be part of a metric toward helping justify a model getting brought back into print .

Not yet sure what to think of the new Daughter, other than "pants".

An ultra-light chariot with bladed wheels and Daughters hanging off the sides and slashing with knives would be fun.

Neat stuff, but where are the books? We're still waiting on IDK and Fyreslayers to get their books. I guess this is a good hint that Daughters of Khaine and Nighthaunt are next for the book treatment, but that's if we even get books.

I guess we'll see.

I kind of feel good now that I didn't get the DoK book at launch cause that's a surprisingly soon book for an army that just got one!

Of the four armies announced though I kind of hope that Nighthaunt get very little in new models and that the rest do because NH, not that I hate them, have a lot of good models right now. Fyreslayers freaking need a second wave as do Idonth


I'll be interested to see what GW does with DoK - I kind of feel like we could see the DE stuff rolled into them, but I'm not sure. The cover certainly suggests they are staying pure

It just means the army is from the GA Chaos and Order like how GW will tease "Xenos". So they could be any un-released army. Eg the Chaos could be Khorne or Slaves to Darkness and the Order could be Cities of Sigmar or such

What a bloody pathetic showing for Idoneth. Absolutely despicable that it's a "one and done" release, given how long the book has been rotting.

Also i hope some of those aren't finalized arts. Would be dull to have repeats.
