I'm betting 5 attacks at 4+/3+/-1/D1, a 4+ with her shield, and 5-7 wounds. It'll be a pretty standard hero profile.

Maybe D3 damage and/or +1 to hit when fighting a Hero, which of course never happens.

Loved how the monk talked right over the barbarian's "why I'm going to defeat you" speech.

Looking forward to a video on the goblin. With even his description calling him a gibbering lunatic his voice actor's gonna have some fun.

I'm just happy he, and the dreams, were even understandable. Was kinda expecting rapid gibberish that the monk could barely make out.

So, to me, it's looking like a global campaign set this time in the realm of Death.

With how overall affecting to other realms this is hinted to be I wonder if we could be fighting over magic super weapons that could have a nasty effect elsewhere depending on who takes them? (So a Black Pyramid would overwhelm major areas of the realm of life with undeath if Death keeps it but chaos taking it would mean daemon swarms upon the realm of fire and places like Hammerhal, for example)

That's my best guess.

Urrrgh pleeeeease, surely a campaign in the realm of death itself must mean new death models, if not now surely never!

I pray Nagash, pray. What if the countdown is for the Knight of Shrouds video that comes with the reveal of new kits for Death? FFS why did I just hype myself in such a way?

I'm turning into a skeleton from this wait.

A setting changing story line where the central foe gets no releases? Inconceivable!

Well, SKellingtons dun good during End Times.

Are you calling noble lord Nagash and his undying(ly) loyal servants the enemy here?

Everyone's trespassing on HIS lands!

But yeah, lots of skeleton focus and the Cairn Wraiths going out of stock look like pretty good indicators that Death is coming in force.

A mini-game that pits the Silver Tower Tzeentch Familiars against all the best Nurglings would be pretty awesome at this point!

Here is my prediction the knight of shrouds is a person who rejected becoming a stormcast. Hence the title name coward and... you got loads of armies pouring into shyish when we know according to a novel it sucks up souls.

Daaaayum I wonder what the reveal is gonna be! Love the Knight of Shrouds! However technically even Death get a Stormcast hero.... Wonder how Nagash stopped his soul from 'escaping.'

Edit: missed the title, hmmm so either Nagash prevented Sigmar from taking his soul or the 'coward' refused to be taken. Which asks how does a mortal refuse the call of a god. A common theme is that you cannot help but to obey a God when they call upon you.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Wait is it only 5 minutes till the reveal? I thought the countdown wouldn't be till later on today but my countdown is showing 5 minutes.
