That's cool. I hope they replicate that foreshadowing for this coming season.

I’d imagine they will (though I wouldn’t say it is foreshadowing, rather than revealing the factions proper. The cards they have just done is the foreshadowing).

I thought they only revealed all the faction art last time due to a few of them leaking? I'd love for them to do it, though...

Really hoping that Caster on the Eldrich Haze is a new Nurgle/Plague/Maggotkin caster of some sort. It almost looks like it's surrounded by fire, which immediately made me think it might be a Firebelly caster (I know, the old model looks different), since I couldn't specifically see any nurgle symbols on them, and both are fat. Also, are they female? Can't tell exactly from the picture. Would be cool to finally have a 'BlightQueen' model. That 'Great Strength card is definitely a blight king/warrior of some sort.

It makes sense that one group would be a Oghurr hunter, and some sabretusks, as that's the only beastclaw raider models who aren't plastic yet. I'm guessing all the Oghurr will be combined into one faction in their next AoS book though.

Those Greenskins seem to be built more like Goblins, than Gnoblar though. Did Gnoblar not survive the end times? Could just be the artist's interpretation, or perhaps Gnoblars are more muscular, and 'human-like' in AoS? Or Oghurrs just work with Goblins now?

Really digging the look of the new 'Wood Elves' too. I hope they get their own faction in AoS also. And like Morathi, and Alarielle, Orion get's a HUGE model. I like the balance of evil goatmen and Minotaurs vs Satyrs and Centaurs.

That's what I thought to, but then all the factions should be previewed on various cards anyway, so they might still do a trailer.

When one the cards definitely looks like it had a ghoul on it in the how to play video. It's actually a pretty cool line up, though disappointing Order Humans still have no representation in the game or a new faction in AoS. The only model they even have that was made for AoS is the Warpriest from Silver Tower. GW should just get on with it and squat them so the Stormcast can protect cities full of Stormcast civilians. Also would have been nice to see Slannesh over Nurgle since Nurgle has been done to death by GW the last few years.

Oooooh, ghouls. Cool. Would it actually be that there are only 3 models in the set? Do box covers historically accurately reflect the contents?

Not fully. Sometimes, larger warbands only show a few characters, like Zarbag's gitz and the skaven one shows only four models, though it comes with five. I was (and still am) hoping that the FEC band would come with a lot of ghouls, and have a rule like the skaven, allowing you to bring back dead models. Maybe the ghoul king is too powerful to warrant this.

Also, cool to see a female crypt ghoul. I sort of figured we'd get one in the set, given the more diverse range of models that Underworld comes with. It'll be interesting to see the models in the flesh

You can kind of make out at least 2 other ghouls in the background of the art. It will probably be more clear in the colored version that will follow shortly. Look around the knees of the two lowered featured ghouls.

So that would make A big dude, the Ghoullette, Club wielding ghoul and the two in the background.

Good call. I wonder if there are two in between the ghouls in the foreground. There looks like a head and a left arm but there is a mass to the left that looks like a stack of ribs/ another figure? I blame it on the lack of coffee and my aging eyes for not picking up the background figures

Was hoping for the leader to be a Ghoul King on foot of some description, so I'm a little disappointed, but a female ghoul is pretty cool. Hopefully GW are prompted into showing the warband now.

There's a Ghoul King on one of the cards we've seen, I'm pretty sure there will be one in the box.

Nothing's stopping us from using the guy in the middle of the artwork as a King. He looks distinct enough.

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

When the Eyes of the Nine got leaked during season 2, did GW reveal the warband early? Or did they keep us waiting for a bit?

It's also worth noting that there are "new" types that have been added in via Underworlds that we have yet to see elsewhere.
Ylthari of Ylthari's Guardians, for example, is a "Thornwych". It was important enough to give her it as a keyword in AoS.

The bearded guy might be something new, a leader below a King but above the Courtiers.

Personally, I think I can make out three ghouls in the background. That would put the warband at six models, which seems a good size for a pack of ghouls to me.

Also, I am amazed that no one has posted this yet, but Warband Focus: Skaeth's Wild Hunt went up yesterday.

Cool art and a female Ghoul is a cool addition

The art is pretty clear as to the two background ghouls. The "third" on the left is amorphous. To me it appears nothing like a ghoul, but rather like a frontal of a nude woman. Seems like 5 to me.

Do we think that these will all be ghoul sized models (ie 25mm base) or does the one on the right with the big bone club look like he could be sized like a crypt horror sized beastie?

Ghouls are looking really cool by the art. I'm looking forward to seeing the models for them.

I hope they're not all hunhed over like the main plastic kit and fewer spine protuberances. I haven't really kept up with AOS fluff as it's not my thing, but ghouls were always feral, degenerate humans who eat dead fleash and the current kit is more humanoid monster than fallen human.

Uuuuuuh, better ghoul models would be ace! The current ones not only have wonky arms and ugly faces (but bad ugly, not *good* ugly, that's why artwork has them look like the plastic ghoul king/Strigoi from the dragon kit) but the MOULD itself is pure garbage. Big mould lines and borderline slippage on stick thin limbs is not a quality product.

Interest in Beastgrave rising, even though I hardly got to play Nightvault compared to Underworlds.

The current kit is way older than Age of Sigmar so it's nothing to do with any new fluff. Just a design for.. I want to say 6th edition fantasy? Maybe 7th. Whenever they radically altered the Vampires to be more bestial rather than the 'classic' versions we got previously.

I know the kit pre-dates AOS, but I wondered if the fluff might have changed. The product page on the webstore makes no reference to ghouls previously having been human.

Pretty sure the bestial Strigoi vampire sculpts were introduced when the ghouls were still represented by the metal ghoul models, which were basically human. Only another edition later did they radically change the ghouls to become these twisted abominations.. if I recall correctly, they also became actual undead units at that moment, while they were living beings before. Would welcome a change back to the earlier style, or at least a middle ground between them - and these designs appear to be something along those lines.

The Lore video is out but no preview of the other warbands this time - it looks like it was filmed awhile ago as it lists the release as Autumn 2019.
