Likely it's just that they wanted a fancy presentation box and to keep everything on as close to a single sprue as possible.

I'd like that. Most of the early rumors from 2017 and previews don't tend to have such a heavy weight and it's always good to declutter.

Hmm, the battle tome version of Grand Alliance Death with rules for all the lovely models models we've been able to buy for ten years. I really hope GW does better than that.

Has any sort of time frame for the Malign Portents release come out of the open day? I haven't seen much coherent coverage of the event. I hope we don't have to wait for the characters until after Custodes are released.

We'll find out soon enough eh.

One thing I've just noticed that's been weirding me out recently with non-human GW plastics - what's up with the pignoses? All the new Orc/k models have the same thing, but the difference is really obvious there when you look at the FW GUO's face by comparison.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?

Orks and GUO have always looked like that afaik. Other models don't have them, fungoid shaman has nose armor even.

Eh, that's actually a fairly old thing, my old boyz kits (for either setting) have those pignoses.

I was checking price for those two (Glottkin and GUO) and there is reasonable price difference. I mean new greater deamon is great but I would rather buy Glottkin get three characters and buy more stuff.
Special mention has to go to Wayne England references all over the new model. Really nice way of giving credits to one great artist and person who shaped Warhammer image with other great names like Blanche, Miller, Gibbons...

From design and overall shape I would prefer this face expression over weird smiling one (watch out Whoville) but overall very nice model with not so nice price tag.

They actually don't. By which I mean, they have blunted snout-like noses, but not the modern version of that which came in later where they look like actual pignoses - the Flash Gitz were a kind of intermediary stage that had the flatter & more prominent front but retained the more angular overall shape. The Orks & Orcs from the 3rd Ed/6th Ed plastics have a slightly triangular or diamond-shaped snout(expression dependent) and similar nostrils, often with a bit of an angle inwards from the "tip", and a septum that blends into the top lip, while a lot of the newer releases have a very round and flat-front, with rounded nostrils, and a strong definition between the bottom of the nose and the top lip(compare the AoBR Warboss with the Orruk Megaboss, for example).

I get that it's a fairly minor change for most people, but for some reason it just really bugs my eye.

Somewhere... over the rainbow

Two full new armies for AoS, and two new codices for 40k all released in two months?
Seems to me GW releases follow a lot slower pace than that.

Dibs are on the Harlequins and Drukhari only getting dexes. It's been actually a fairly standard pace, considering that they've released 2 dexes a month plus something more (mainly primaris and DG).

Ah, so the two aelf army rumor gets more plausibility.

Calling it that the rumor engine arrow fletches are for one force and the little wyrm around the arm is for the other Aelven army.

(With how close the AoS rpg is coming up I think the AoS summary video, fluff detailed Nagash book and now two armies to shed more light on the realms of light and shadow are likely why Cubicle7 held back the rpg release for more content they could use. )

I'm not seeing the difference between this: https://www.games-workshop.com/en-NZ/Orruks and the recent Ironjawz. The detail is sharper maybe?

At least one week of the second half of February is Gang War 2, Orlocks, FW Bounty Hunter models, and maybe the Escher FW weapon packs.

This is rumour also from that same guy (supposely) on disqus:

2 new Elf faction :

- Water elves cthulu rider.

- An all female elf cult worship the snake deity, who will had 2 kit in both snake and human from, which surprise me that would be the snake rumour pic (and not Fulgrim)

If they follow the current GW trend for multi builds I could see GW releasing two Elven factions over two months. The Kharadron have six kits plus five solo characters, while Fyreslayers have even less with only three kits and four solo characters. Not to mention the new armies could make use of existing kits and absorb some of the existing Elven mini factions to fill out there ranks.

That sounds very much like something made-up by looking at unsolved rumor engine pictures. It doesn't line up with the Age of Sigmar fluff we've seen so far.

Two elf armies, on the other hand, I could totally see. One for the realm of shadow (Shadowkin, which we know for sure are an Aelf faction), and one for the realm of light. I could even imagine kits being dual-build across armies with a shadow build and a light build.
