I have to say I love the weapons on the twinsouls. Somethingin the past with Old World was that many weapons in the fantasy setting were very classic weapons - swords and spears and such. Here we've got a vast variety of different styled weapons and getting far more exotic in nature.

The Twinsouls really aren't doing it for me, but those Painbringers have a great aesthetic. Excellent Slaaneshy hats especially. Maybe it's just that the different weapons on the Twinsouls give me flashbacks to the Game of Thrones Sand Snakes and the downfall of the show they represented. Though those demonic heads also really are too comic looking.
Sigvald... of course impressive, but his head looks off. The sharp highlights around the eyes, the nose, the near absence of lips. Not sure. Wonder how big he ends up being, I rather prefer it if powerful character can occasionally not be extra large, but he's clearly a big boy now.

Thinking on prices I'm guessing:

Sigvald - £37. He seems to be about the same size as Roboute Guilliman so perhaps around the same price. Expensive, but he's not a Greater Demon in size

Myrmidesh Painbringers/Symbaresh Twinsouls - £30-5 for 5. That would be about the same as many other kits of their nature and GW has shown them in sets of 5 in the demo reels. That said they showed ossiarchs in sets of 10 and they came with 20 in a box. We could be treated to more in a box or not.

I'd definitely say five to the box, these are more flashy elites than core troops (though I'd wager there's a way to make the Painbringers a battleline option, either Sigvald himself or one of the unrevealed additions).

Expect a higher price point though, I'd be very surprised if they're any cheaper than the Stoneguard

I'd expect them to be statted similar to a Chaos Warrior with a slaanesh ability or two.

I like the Painbringers. Not sure about the alternate build. The heads are dodgy to say the least and the mixed and different weapon designs are something I think I'd have to see in person. The unit looks a off in the picture. contrast that to the Chaos Warriors in the start collecting and the new ones for Underworlds that also have individual styles yet fit together nicely. Not sure what went wrong with the Slaaneshi guys, to be honest.

I don't know about Sigvald's horns. I wouldn't even say they're a problem aesthetically, but they go against this idea that Sigvald is the prettiest of them all. I think it's a case of the sculptor not being able to restrain themselves and just having to add moar. Because plain elegance isn't GW's strong suit.

Looking forward to seeing all those things in the background.

As lovely as that story you made up is, it's probably to denote his elevation to daemonhood.

Probably. Not that this presumed motive is in any way an argument against what I said.

That’s not as indicative as one might hope these days. GW has been having supply issues w/Australia-bound products lately, though mostly new releases.
One suspects a container ship had a partial load slip somewhere.

Might not be a load slip;a lot of international trade has been messed up and Australia is very strict about import inspections. It might be that corona measures are slowing down processing considerably.

If it was just moving out of stock it would be listed as such; rather than sold out. Of course it might simply be that GW has longer plans but that they've no plans to ship more to Australia until the new one arrives so it could be a long time

Depending on the exact size seems like some easy 40k conversions:

Sigvald minus cowhorns = Fulgrim (non-snake form)

Painbringers with an arm swap and backpack = corrupted sisters of battle. Similar shoulder plates, similar silhouette.

Sigvald is about 90% great except for the head. The face is too bland, he should have way more sass. And then there's the horns because of course he needed to have horns for some reason. Anyway, nothing the trusted knife and putty can't solve.

it could be the lord of pain that makes the painbringers battleline

If GW does some lighter infantry then they might need a hero ability to become battleline; but if there are no other troops in the pipe line then I'd expect them to be battleline in their base stats.

Also, is it just me, or has AoS ramped up the Greekness factor of its factions? First you had the DoK with their Medusa theme, then Idoneth Deepkin, then Bonereapers with names like Katakros and Kavalos, then the new Elves became hoplites and now the Slaanesh Warriors of Chaos are wearing hoplite helmets too.
I assume this has something to do with the overall "gods and demi-gods" flavor of the setting.

Right behind you.

A lot of it has been there, it's just never really been shown. Slaanesh stuff has notably had 'hoplite' style gear for ages...but it's more notable the ties to High Elf aesthetics than anything else.

Loving the new Slaanesh stuff but...any early thoughts on what would make for good head swaps (!) on the Twinsouls models?

I love the Sigvald model. The armour is just beautifully sculpted.

The only thing i dislike is those horns. Man that really doesn't work for me..
If I were to get one for painting I would have to get rid of the horns but I think overall its a damn gorgeous miniature.

Daemonettes or Hellstrider heads are probably the closest matches to what they were going for. Or the Slaanesh head from the old Chaos Space Marine kit, maybe. The Sisters of Slaughter heads for an alternated helmeted head.

I like the helmeted dudes a lot. The way they used details from an old Slaanesh champion on some parts of the armor is great. Still can’t find this guy :( he’s probably my second favourite slaanesh mini, competing only with the lord on boob worm. (First place - diazanettes of course).

Not a fan of Sigvald, his previous iteration is better..

Sisters of Silence heads might be a good swap they have high pony tails and a face mask that would fit the aesthetic while suggesting they are hiding some mutation. Can’t claim credit for that Warhammer Weekly mentioned it.

I was actually thinking on one day using Sisters of Silence as chaos warriors/champions for a Slaanesh themed Slaves to Darkness army.

Well Twinsouls remind me of WoC Forsaken, and they were much uglier.
