Oof Tome of Champions on top of 4 "codexes" is pretty greedy.

It is a bit but I mean, you don't need them *all*. I am on a GW book downer at the moment, Blood Angels 2020 is the first blood angels codex ever that I will not buy, but these don't trigger me too much. I plan to get Order, Chaos, and the Tome of Champions book and ignore the death/destruction ones.

Agreed. Tome of Champions 2019 was worth it to me since I wanted the Fighter cards. With the Grand Alliance Tomes, Tome of Champions 2020 probably won't have any, save White Dwarf articles reprints. So at the moment, the only stuff that interests me is the Shadowstalker box, although the Sylvaneth looks good too.

Warcry Warbands are £2.50 up on the others. Not a big difference, but still GW is pushing up those prices.
Note that's the two new warbands not the Sylvaneth and Nagash ones which are a different kind of band and made with existing kits.

No surprise, gotta inflate the value of Catacombs somehow. Actually I expected +£5

If you want to know what you should expect from the bands in the Warcry battletomes, here is what I got a few time ago from the Warcry Reddit before it was wiped out by the mods :





The main change is that they include AoS heroes as potential leaders in their band faction. They also separate abilities in two tables : one for the "generic troopers" and one specifically for leaders. Makes it easier to read since the leader rune is sometimes a bit confusing with the elite one...also, since the number of leaders for all AoS factions is considerably higher than, said, the bands made specifically for Warcry, it's better that way.

The index also hints for allies and mercenaries rules, I wouldn't be surprised if the new system allows to pick leaders from other bands in the same battletome as allies / mercenaries. That would make even more sense about the clear separation between leader profiles and "normal grunts" profiles.

Really happy and excited to see the 'mercenary' heroes be made into hero options. That feels like how it should be. Separating out a different table for leader abilities is also a great move, happy to see that as well. The hand of Bottle continues to guide Warcry in good directions!

Sidenote: Anyone else disappointed by the weakness of the revenant statline? The points cost is appropriate but they should be better than dryads, not worse. Instead we have tree-revenants being worse than the average human grunt.

Warcry has its own logic, I guess. What is strong in AoS isn't automatically strong in Warcry, and the opposite is also true.

Role of tree-revenants in Warcry is clear : being cheap troops who can occasionnally go for objectives (their triple effectively allows them to be redeployed when they're needed).

They have less attacks than dryads certainly because their miniature only holds one weapon and they have less wounds because...they're looking like elves ? Oh well, we'll have to deal with their profile as it is written anyway.

Good stuff nice mini I hope a lot of the new Hedonite mortals make it into the Agents of Chaos book ahead of their release. Ash Barker should have a review in the morning so hopefully we’ll see then.

Where have we seen bull style helmets before ?

Is it just me, or does the wording of the article suggest that the Agents of Chaos book is going to include all of the relevant unreleased Hedonite units?

Certainly would make sense, given that they're supposed to be dropping in January, but I might also just be projecting

These guys will fit in well with warcry. The soothsayer and the Dread Pageant all have matching symbols and shoulder pads.

Speaking of which, is this a guy or a girl? The model makes me think its a dude, which makes his high heeled shoe funny. But the artwork seems more femine, but also masculine. Whoever sculpted knows how to make Slaanesh followers

Book goes up for preorder on the 12th in the US/CAN, so he might not have a review copy.

Buffalo and bulls have different styles of horns.

EDIT: only ToC is delayed according to the Sunday preview

If you’re in North America, you’ll have to wait a little longer to get your hands on the Tome of Champions – it should be available to pre-order in the US and Canada on the 12th of December.

Its Slaanesh so likely to have one breast regardless of original/primary gender?

So no Soulblight in Warcry :(
