It's alright. We learned that Daughters of Khaine like upside down testicles so much that they put them on the statue of their god. That's worth something, right?

There's picture of lumineth battletome cover with 3rd ed style top. Supposedly honest wargamer showed that.

Dunno if real and dunno where honest wargamer is supposedly have got that but if true indicates fall order book would be the last order faction without any update for 3rd ed so far.

I saw an image of it (not sure if it’s the same one) but it looks photoshopped the AoS 3 heading doesn’t line up in the top right corner but it might just be the angle.

Also the Nethermaze Shadeborn aren’t in the DoK book (no points lists on the pitched battle profiles)

Deliberately mischaracterising an opinion you don’t agree with as “offence” in order to try to discredit it … sadly, that’s not a new one.

How would you characterise it? I just can't think of an angle in which that criticism makes sense, but I am willing to be convinced.

What is your definition of 'proper dark elf'? Honest question, and I do see your point regardless.

I will restrain myself, because i don't want to cause any actual trouble or animosity, but the temptation to post ridiculous images "answering" this question (that wasn't to me at all) is terribly, terribly strong.

Sunday preview - Sylvaneth and Skaven clash in next weeks pre-orders

Echoes of Doom is available for pre-order next week. I don't technically collect either army, but I have Skaven and Sylvaneth leftovers from Spire of Dawn, Looncurse and Carrion Empire boxed sets and this would expand nicely on those...

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.

Good stuff! Anyone speculate as to what the price tag on that one might be? If it's the same as the last battlebox at £115 then it's tempting enough to pick up through a third party... That said, some large and very new and shiny kits in there which leads me to believe it'll be closer to the £130 mark.

Ebay is going to be interesting no matter the outcome!

I mean, Daughters of Khaine are a matriarchal society and Morathi made all male aelves weak and made to serve as a slave caste. So does them worshipping a god holding a bloody pair of gonads seem off brand to you? No?

Maybe characterise it as somebody not liking it, or not thinking it makes sense to them or thinking something else would be preferable? You know, something less histrionic that doesn’t implicitly accuse the that person’s opinion of being somehow hysterical or irrational just because you don’t agree with it.

Hm, I see 'offended' and 'hysterical' as very far apart. The former being relatively mild, the latter severe. At any rate in my view the phrases "stupid Valentine's day heart" and "the need for 20th century folks to sanitize everything before its smeared all over holidays" don't seem to come from a particularly rational angle.

Yep these are Warcry Warbands (10/13 minis) including cards not the AoS S2D double boxes (20/26 minis). They are the same price as the most recent Warcry specific warbands.

AoS warscrolls if anyone missed them.

These are the Warcry versions, with the cards. Single set of sprues, not the double box without cards for AoS. Same price as the Shadowstalkers and Scions of the Flame
