Suffolk, where the Aliens roam.

Finally picked up Nighvault on Friday, as I realized some of the sleeves and dice where starting to go out of stock at GW, so I grabbed all the current warbands Cards/sleeves and got the boxed set from two independents who still had the varying things I needed at discount.

Looking at these two warbands, I think I might be getting the Darkoath gang before the Tzeentch or Grot bands I didn't get yet, maybe even the troll fella.

The names are absolute garbage, of course. But that is true of nearly all GW names these days. They are all two part compounds of NounNoun or AdjectiveNoun or NounAdjective. It is absolute slurry and creatively bankrupt. But luckily the same brainrot has not infected the sculptors, and they continue to make absolutely stunning miniatures full of character.

I’m with you on the names, unfortunately it’s kind of an industry thing now with Mierce and their face to keyboard naming being the worst. Everyone is trying to differentiate their product o the point of absurdity.

Virtually the entirety of the fantasy literature market has been using the exact same naming convention for surely 30 years now, seems to be working fine for them.

I simply still refer to everything by it's old name.

So "Stone Trolls", "River Trolls", "Giant", "Night Goblins", etc. instead of "Troggoths" or "Gitz" and all that gak. Same for the other races.

To be fair 'gitz' has been a thing for a good decade or two at least now, just not in unit names yet. That gets a pass from me. Otherwise, ...yeah.

Yeah, "Gitz" and "Grots" don't actually bother me either but I still prefer "Goblins" for the fantasy side of things.

"Seraphon" though... nope.

Hmmmm! At first I was underwhelmed, then I realized I wasn't reading Mollog's stats right . He's a beast!

Only issue will be cold dice, so getting him a support or hit buff would really help. Will have to think about how to run him...

What's pretty sweet is that this warband seems like the Exact opposite playstyle of the gobbos, so should be a lot of fun to compare

Interesting band, especially how the creative team has decided to handle its first 6-model warband. There does not seem to be any activation buffs to help maneuver a large warband. Instead they want one to sacrifice a couple of these humans to the chaos gods for benefits!

The worst part is they thought by changing the names they could prevent others from saying those names to advertise third party parts, which isn’t how that works anyways.

Godsworn hunt preview
It’s been driving me nuts whether the leader of this group was female or not. The model looks male (the hair is textbook 70s anime hero, and from the one angle that they show the model, it looks like pecs instead of breasts), but half the art looks like it is a woman. But only half. I haven’t asked because I thought everybody would say it was obvious, and I thought the sorcerer from the Tzeentch war band looked female in the cover art, but wasn’t. In this preview, there’s finally confirmation of Theddra’s gender.

I you couldn't tell she was female from the first time the model whas shown I don't know what to tell you.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

Oh, come on. Lizardmen is a stupid name. Dark Elves is a stupid name. Even Eldar isn't a very good name for an alien race. For a lot of these, the new names are much better and more immersive, once you get over your nostalgia and dislike of change.

I like to think of the new names as that species’ name for itself and the old name as the common Imperial citizens name for them (or in the case of Imperial names, the High Gothic name and the vernacular).

That's actually the explanation GW has given for a couple of these. The organization is called the Astra Militarum, but citizens refer to it as the Imperial Guard. The order is the Adeptus Astartes, but a Guardsman refers to them as Space Marines.

Oh, I hadn’t realized that; a pleasant coincidence. But then I had been away from GW for 13 years until last year (thanks to the awesome Shadespire and Kill Team games).
