I’d imagine the heads are separate looking at them.

I like these two. Again, maybe the one to pull me in to Underworlds (I say this nearly every time).
Do warbands come out in two’s?

Each edition has a core set which features a bunch of universal cards, board, tokens and two warbands from the set. The rest of the warbands are then released on their own - typically there's some themed dice and card backs during teir launch weeks (which run out fast) and then thereafter there's just the warbands on their own.

Most warbands thus far have been sold in two ways - a slightly more expensive pack with the cards for Underworld; and a cheaper one (A few pounds) which is just the models for AoS use (ergo no warband cards).




Right now the first series wave of cards and models are gone from the GW store in their Underworld box (The models on their own are still sold). There is some debate on how GW will move forward from this and if they will rerelease the cards with the models again; since whilst the universal cards from series 1 are removed now; the character/faction cards are not and they are still only within those early packs for those first warbands.

Goblin wolf riders are nice. Hopefully we get a full unit of them for AoS and they aren't too bad to rank up on square bases. Never did get any for my night goblin army (as they weren't technically night goblins) and regret it.

it's the quiet ones you have to look out for. Their the ones that change the world, the loud ones just take the credit for it.

The book goes on pre-order next weekend so most are assuming the first wave of new Underworlds stuff goes on pre-order next weekend. This would tie very nicely to them previewing the wolf riders today and following it up with the pre-order preview next weekend.
It then becomes the question if its a one or two week release.

The further question is then if we see Cities of Sigmar and/or Orruk Battletomes on pre-view next weekend.

Cast your mind back to a forgotten age, when unwary travellers passing through great forests or across desolate steppes had to be constantly wary, lest they be attacked by vicious little greenskins on even more vicious wolves.

Those days may be long gone, but just as the Waaagh! always comes back, so too have the grots and their murderous mounts – this time to the Warhammer Underworlds! Meet Rippa’s Snarlfangs.

Seems to me this is more of a cute throwback than any change in direction. I doubt they will be much more than a single unit thrown into Gloomspites or maybe the new Ogors, just like I doubt the kurnothi will become an army of their own in AoS proper.

Liking the new gobbos, always been a fan of wolf riders and GW for me have done a good job of modernising the sculpt without ruining it nor making it cartoony. Hope it plays well.

We'll find out soon enough eh.

I'm putting myself firmly in the "just a random throwback/whim and nothing more" camp, not because I want that to be true or have any special knowledge that it is, but simply because I'm not allowing myself even a teeny-weeny smidge of hope that these might be indicative of an upcoming Gloomspite-style release where a handful of whacky AoS stuff gets used to justify what are, functionally, updated WHFB sculpts. It was always a shame that only Night Gobbos got a proper revamp before WHFB was murdered, new "common" Gobbos would be brilliant(so would a proper Forest Gobbo range as well of course).

They are very nice models, alas I don't have any use for just three of them.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?

Three riders would be just enough for when they inevitably get rules in WarCry. Maybe they'll be nice and toss some rules in for Trolls while they're at it.

Shieldwolf is also supposed to have a set of plastic forest goblins coming out in the next year or so if you get impatient waiting for GW to make some.

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

Underworlds continues to be the one refuge for decent GW fantasy sculpts.

Unfortunately Shieldwolf decided to go with size & proportions to match the older giganto-scale models from the first multipart common and night gobbo GW kits, so waiting for GW to get around to doing them in the 7th ed onwards style is my only option(unless I finally git gud with my digital sculpting and just do them myself for 3D printing).

They've had a few minis lately that could kinda/sorta be nods to Battlemasters. I did up this 'Chaos Archer' recently from the Godsworn Hunt

They’re released in pairs though.

Ok cool.
So one more to be revealed for release along side then.

21st pre order on the starter.
Then maybe a month or so for this with another yet to be revealed?

Right behind you.

There's no guarantee that the goblins are going to be released right off the bat.

Hate to remind people of this, but the Dreadfane pairing of Banshees and Sequitors is a known quantity for release. They made it clear that Dreadfane is just an "early release" of it.

The last two seasons didn’t have warbands at the same time as the box did they?
That’s why I assumed goblins would come with the 4Th band. Together but later.

What was the gap between warbands in Nightvault?

Nightvault had no separate warbands on release day

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2018/09/16/next-week-the-nightvault-opens/

Zarbags Gits and Eyes of the Nine got released 3 weeks later (October) then they spread the others over the following year. Mollogs Mob and Godsworn hunt in January and Ylthari’s Guardians and Thundriks profiteers at the end of April.

That scenery looks fantastic! I wonder if the centers are removable to allow models to stand on them, seems like they'd be difficult to use as lethal hexes otherwise? (With the exception of the acid pit)

This is correct.

The 'scenery' is meant to go on the board in the spots where there are the impassable bits.

DaveC's link mentions lethal hexes too, though:

For Realm Builders

Beastgrave is one of the most interesting corners of the Mortal Realms we’ve ever had the chance to explore, and it gives us a closer look at the bizarre, deadly and eerily beautiful nature of the savage Realm of Beasts. If you’re looking to bring a bit of Ghurish flair to your games of Warhammer Underworlds the Primal Lair set is ideal, packed with plastic scenery that’s perfect for representing blocked and lethal hexes in cinematic fashion.

Maybe they're just stretching things, as obviously you need to be able to stand on a lethal hex. But it'd be sweet to have official "terrain" for them, as in the new rules it looks like you can actually place lethal hexes at the start of the game (so can't rely on the outlines on the board only).
