Something Sylvaneth this way comes? Although with that..standard coming out of its back with candles at the top, possibly death?

I see abird, a standard,sign with candles and branch like limbs. The two blurry objects in the background also look like trees.

It could be something new undead for Death; it could be a new Sylvaneth or it could even be Nurgle since Nurgle has been twisting the woods for a long while now and has an obsession with the Everqueen.



It could also be GW following PP in creating a Grimkin style army, so that could be a scarecrow. Which would explain its somewhat haphazard apparent construction.


Very hard to tell right now and hard to tell if it fits into an existing army or is something new.

Looks like the old Citadel Woods in the back.

The only silhouette that comes close to matching what's chasing Johann is the Dryads and to some extent, the Spite/Tree-Revenants.

Perhaps the darker side of the Sylvaneth will get some love? Or just a replacement for the finecast Brancwraith, formerly known as Drycha.

And I believe that the Sylvaneth were going to be active in the Broken Realms story. They were mentioned as turning on residents of Ghyran :

Allarielle, fickle as the seasons, turns on allies as well as enemies, attacking explorers and settlers across Ghyran.

Long shot, but I see a freshly reanimated zombie that has taken the ground with it after rising up. Tree stump with roots twisting through the body, tufts of grass, and a sign (grave marker?) that was hammered into the earth.

I suspect it's not Sylvaneth because it appears to be wearing clothes, and the sign/marker is just too inorganic and corporeal to be a tree-folk design

If the roots have had time to grow through the body sufficiently to come with it when it gets up to walk around, I'm pretty sure we're past the zombie stage, and probably into skeleton instead.

Very true, it's definitely a very skeletal body. The hands and the lack of wargear is what make me lean towards zombie though, more in terms of their respective unit than actual physical state.

I just can't see it being a scarecrow. The tree stump and the sign stabbed through it just don't make sense if that were the case, to say nothing of how poorly a folk-horror faction would fit into AoS as a high fantasy setting

Debatable. The Josh Reynolds book with the witch hunter and the swamps and what's left of Orion did a pretty good job with a lot of folk horror themes and feel. Quite a bit of the Sylvaneth stuff leans that way too, just from the perspective of the monsters.

It's hard to read their exact direction from a silhouette, but there are a couple ways that can take it.
The biggest thing a 'folk horror' faction needs is some just plain folk to react to it. Various flavors of armored monstrosities and soulless elves aren't going to react the right way. And Cities as they are now are too generalized and generic a mix of every order faction to really sell it.

I don't think it's a coincidence that the picture right above the teaser is the Blood Bowl scarecrow, frankensteain's monster and werewolf.

I don't think it's a Dryad--the hands are too human. Doesn't mean it's not Sylvaneth though.

Folk horror has a number of existing factions it can fit into, doesn't necessarily mean a new army. Could be as simple as a new unit.

Folk horror elements definitely have their place, particularly given that's more or less where almost every Death faction began (ghouls, ghosts, vampires, etc), but it's the scarecrow part in particular that I'm struggling with. As Voss said, there just aren't any common folk (in the miniatures setting, ignoring Black Library background and peripheral stories) to make them a worthwhile addition (other than as a purely aesthetic build for a zombie/skeleton).

We did see a very werewolf-like leg in a semi-recent Rumour Engine though, so maybe there is a traditional folk horror Undead warband coming up for Underworlds. Would certainly be a relief, given how hard it'd be to have multiple of this sculpt blend in as a full unit. If the Blood Bowl team immediately preceding it in the preview isn't just a coincidence (and I do believe it is, given that it's so close to release anyway) then it's the whole team that seems to be referenced.

Well, no. Its a Halloween article about 'spooky' miniatures.
Its definitely intentional, but that's the only connection. The blood bowl team isn't related to shadow elves, and necron warriors aren't related to fabulous bill.

Doesn't look very elfy to me. I expect Malerions elves will still have markedly elven design, even if its spiky, wispy or demonically accented. That silhouette just looks like it's straight out of Sylvania.

GW redesigned their zombies to have that scarecrow look around 6th edition. There was a bunch of JB concept art floating about for VC and they made some in the corpse cart kit. My money would be on a undead army of vampires leading zombies.

Yea, maybe some sort of driftwood zombie? Given the "pirate" vampire vibe some people have been getting from harpoons and sail looking things. That might be too crazy, but it'd look awesome.

There is quite a bit more to see in the background of their reveal video

Right ones look like Slaangors and the left one looks like a bigger model based on the size of the base

Left one looks like the new Lord of Pain but seems like another Character on the right also some kind of chariot carried by some Slaangors in the middle?

Also this part in the background could be part of a bigger centerpiece model
