There's still cards like "Regal Vision"(Pick a friendly fighter holding an objective; Inspire them) or "Inspiration Strikes" as well--but given that they show off two fairly easy "Score Immediately" cards, I think that these guys will be easier to Inspire than the Sylvaneth will be.

Assassinate their leader, no one gets inspired. Don’t the goblins have a similar condition that requires you have some Glory?

Goblins require you to have 3 or more Glory Points(aside from the Fanatic who just Inspires when Activated), and then everyone gets Inspired.

Yeah, that's true. I mentioned that in the Survey.

I also said we need a Nurgle Daemon warband. One big fat magic using deamon with 4-6 nurglings that have to end their move adjacent to the boss, who he's attacking or each other. Throw in a couple of plague bearers and that's a warband.

New Aelves are mutants anyway, well except for Wyches, if you considered that new.

Ehhhhhhhhhh...

Idoneth aren't really mutants. The Namarti are a specific bit of what are effectively 'birth defects'.
The Isharaan(Soulscryers, Tidecasters, Soulrenders, and the Soul Wardens) are all 'normal' aside from having no hair.
The Akhelians(Kings and the beast riders) are all 'normal' again aside from the no hair bit.

Daughters of Khaine are in a similar situation in that there's a whole lot of normal(Witches, Sisters of Slaughter, the Doomfire Warlocks, Hags, etc) and some weirdness that has given us the Melusai and Khinerai.

We know basically nothing about Teclis' Aelves other than "angelic features"(which could just mean they're super handsome/pretty) or Malerion's Shadowkin outside of "they're rumored to be able to melt into shadow".

Wow, that's a very cool set of rules/stats! They match the model theme quite well, I think, although look like they might be a little static to play. Very interested in trying them out

Being bald is a mutation already.

Hopefully with the release of more Darkoath model we get to see that GW are willing to make normal looking faction, not bizzare mutant or faction with weird hobby (like running naked and etched gold rune on their body...)

Heh, I though Deepkin shave their hair. Ascetic ways, not wanting to be tempted to decorate them or something like that.

I've been picking up a couple of boxes just for the models and was super excited to see Thundrik's Profiteers named...but then remembered they were sky-dwarfs.

I was hoping for an Old World nod with proper dwarf treasure hunters. Maybe next time

I guess clothes and capes are okay, though

That's a thing I can't get behind with Deepkin. How do they make clothes and iron armor under water? Are their cities like Gungan bubbles, and not filled with water? Or do they just make stuff when they get online.

More on topic, could Deepkin be trapped in Shadespire? The namurati(?) have pretty weak souls, so I'm not sure how well they'd fare in Shadespire. Though, if Squigs can be trapped, I suppose anyone can

Their cities are described a couple different ways. The main thing seems to be that the whole Aethersea is they've kinda/sorta "shifted" the sea into being a ghost of itself around their cities and persons and that's also what they bring when raiding.

For the Idoneth, it is almost as though they are on land and for anyone on land...well, it can be as though a sea has risen out of nowhere.

Sure. And don't forget that it's not just who was "trapped" in Shadespire--it's people going in there to try to find things.

I'm sure the Deepkin would raid the hell out of the place if they thought they could get souls from the Shadeglass.

None.

It was previewed at the New York Toy Fair alongside of Combat Arena, Stormvault, and the Funko Pops--it might be months or it might be weeks. Gama and NYTF are both trade shows rather than hobby events, meaning there is likely a hell of a lot more lead time.

True.. on a rational level, I strongly believe that this will hit by October, in time for the Xmas rush of games..

However, I want it NOOOOOW.. (cue Verua Salt)

I think it’ll be earlier than that. October will probably be when Underworlds season 3 comes out, based on when Shadespire and Nightfane were released.

I concur with ImAGeek. Season 3 is in October. Dreadfane is probably in July (3 months from now and 3 months before Season 3).

Those Kharadron dice look really nice. Am I correct in assuming all these special dice sets show the same symbols and only vary in color? I might be interested in playing my skeletons casually but don't have dice yet.

Oh, and as a note only the hit dice are different colors. The defense dice are all the same translucent black.
