Yeah based on the size difference in this picture I thought they'd be more expensive than the Ogroid but the Ogroid is a more of a one off buy where as you can have multiples of the others in AoS so one balances the other I guess. I won't complain about £20 from online discounters.

I actually went and preordered the Crusher and not the Llama. Just seems to have more applications outside GW games.

Good to see the available choices announced ahead of time.

Pusgoyle Blightlords are in after all and Bloodbound get the Khorgorath I guess they want to sell the Goreblade warband which is in fairness not a bad way to get a Bloodbound warband.

I am seriously surprised that the Blightlords and Plague Drones are in the card packs.

My biggest problem has become that there are WAY too many potential warbands for me to play all of them!

Completely agree - I've been playing Iron Golem & Night Gobbos, then bought the Slaves to Darkness cards (disappointed with the lack of Chaos Knights). I've already got Rotbringers & Nurgle daemons for AoS, but I'm tempted by Seraphon & Daemons of Khorne.

I bought a couple of Maggotkin starter sets last month due to Darren Latham's latest tutorial and I've been loving painting them, so I suppose they're now destined to be a Warcry band.

Seraphon are a no brainer for me. Surprised by how many flying units they're tossing in.

I suspect this wave was done again by a different person (wave 2 was clearly not the same designer as wave 1) and this one has a boner for cavalry.

Eh some armies just don't have many actual model options to pick from. Slaanesh has VERY few options in the infantry slots. In fact fiends are pretty large based on the standard size of models most use. However if you take cavalry and fiends and most of the leaders out then Slaanesh really only has one troop unit to put on the table. The only way to vary it would be to get really fussy with the claw arm types.

Ossiarchs are much the same, again they've very few real options to pick from - infantry might have 3 weapon variations and that's it.


I think it just highlights how some armies, like Skaven, have loads of options, whilst many others are very restricted .

Well I am be surprised if Pusgoyle Blightlord are not the most expensive unit in the game. Even more so that those actually got added.

Same here. The wife and I haven't used the same war band yet. Its great dusting off old minis that haven't seen action in a while.

Why were waves 1 and 2 definitely different people? Who was released in each?

Speaking of Beastmen, it'd be nice if there were actual boxes of Dragon Ogres and Minotaurs readily available (along with Ogre Ironguts) outside of direct order from GW.

For factions with such limited options it'd be nice if we didn't have to skulk ebay and second hand bits sales for said limited options.

Warhammer Community has posted a review of the Fomoroid Crusher and Mindstealer Sphiranx kits:

I wish the Ogroid was cheaper compared to them. But whatever. Cool minis.

Looking for a Skaven Doomwheel banner to repair my Nurgle knights.

Looking forward to these. Yes the Ogroid is a bit cooler (imo) but both of these are more massive and at the same price, and I thought the Ogroid was reasonably well priced, so these seem great to me.

The Ogroid Myrmidon is roughly the same price as the slightly smaller Ogroid Thaumaturge. I'm surprised that the Crusher and Mindstealer weren't in the $45-$50 range.

On one hand I feel this is a missed opportunity to drill down and add nuance to basic options, on the other I am happy to see such a wide variety of kits being incorpprated. But for example, daemonettes could be broken down into four options: regular, leader, music (1 less attack but has a special runemark), and banner (also 1 less attack but has a special runemark). The 'music runemark' and 'banner runemark' could be shared across seekers & hellstriders, though in hellstriders' case it would be 1 less toughness instead. The abilities can them be a generic double, an ability for music, and ability for banner, an ability for mounted, an ability for leader, and a generic quad. Twelve unit options in total, across three different kits, and fiends haven't even gotten involved yet!

But quite frankly, I'm not complaining. They opted for a slightly different approach, I'm sure they had their reasons, and I am pretty dam happy with the results.

That isn't going to go over well, methinks.

Displeased at Maggotkin only getting 5 cards, but if the cards are well designed it could be enough. Worst case scenario it isn't like my group won't let me run daemons & rotbringers in the same band.
