Wonder if the army will continue any of those greek themes, or if it was just for the teaser. I'd pay good coin for some mythos inspired armies

The question now is what will be the nature of this release? Just a new Battletome for Shadowkin or adding new models and what not?

From the motif we see witch Elves fighting Slaanesh, and what look like Harpies or Elves gaining wings followed by Medusae worshipping at the altar of Khaine.

My prediction is this update will be more like the Sylvaneth one than say Stormcast or Arcanites. It will take the existing models for the Daughters of Khaine then add in several new model sets to flesh out the faction.

Ah so I was wrong about Neferata!

but Ohh this looks wonderful - I love Medusae and more of them including a goddess version is awesome!

Looking forward to seeing what they have in store.

Are you crazy? Look at all the snake women in the video, basically the definition of model hints! And combined with the dialogue talking about how she took aspects of Slaanesh but slithered out of his mouth... We're getting a full release of beautiful slithering ladies led by Medusa Morathi, bet on it! *giddy*

I have to question on how they would release a book for the Witch Aelves faction when the entire faction at the moment is made up of just the Witch Elves and Cauldron of Blood.

Yeah, this feels like an Ironjawz release. Take the single unit that exists (for them black orcs and for these a little more to work with) and flush out a range that fits a book. I think this is awesome.

Yes please Greek based Shadow Aelves... just Greek-anything is great. I always liked more the greek Slaanesh aesthetic than the BDSM one (The old chaos lord in daemonic mount for example)

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

Something that has me a bit wary at this juncture of this being "Shadowkin" is that there's no sign of Malerion.

I think whoever called this as "Daughters of Khaine" might have the right of it.

As she is "the one true voice of a dead God"... that's Khaine right?

So this is pretty much growing out of the Daughters of Khaine faction. I haven't followed their AoS background, are DoK in the Shadow Realm at the moment?

They are a bit spread out, like most factions. But if memory serves right they did originally hail from Ulgu.

Actually they include the Doomfire Warlocks, and so wasn't and won't be all-female.

Daughters of Khaine didn't "hail" from anywhere. They've been part of the Mortal Realms since the start and spread throughout most places.

A large number of them have set up shop in the Realm of Shadow because their "cult" wasn't really considered a-okay in a lot of places what with the whole sacrificing people thing.

That's a good point!

Still not sure why they put Doomfires in there rather than the Darkling Covens.

Wonder if they'll just be retconned out of existence for this new faction then.

Well done Dakka!

But in all seriousness, this sounds like an awesome release, can't wait to see more!

I'm thinking it'll be more like Sylvaneth and Ironjaws where they took a few legacy models (Dryads and Treemen for Sylvaneth and Black Orks for Ironjaws) and expanded them into full factions.

It would be poor form to advertise a Greek theme and then not deliver on it. Personally, this is great for me! I'm slowly trying to build a mortal army for each Chaos god, and I was planning to do heretical Dark Aelves for the Slaanesh cult. This looks like exactly what I was imagining! Even if it'll actually be an Order faction, my head cannon will be that they're Slaanesh worshippers.

Transcription:

They call me Shadow Queen. The one true voice of a dead god. A demi-goddess in exile, twisted in the form of her tormentor. I, who was once devoured, yet slithered from the throat of the dark prince. I, who helped bring civilization to the Mortal Realms and stood first against the corruption of Chaos. I, who feed upon offerings of blood and shadow, drawing ever nearer to my rightful place in the pantheon. For too long have I been shunned! NO longer will I be denied!

Yeah, that was unsatisfying. Thanks.

On a more serious note, those Greek drawings where everyone sees Witch Elves. Am I the only one seeing something more akin to Raging Heroes' Not-Daemonettes, you know with mantis claws and all?

Those ARE Daemonettes, on foot and riding Fiends. They are fighting Witch Aelves, Harpies and Medusa.
