It's not a bad guess for chaos dwarves. Warcry would be the ideal way to re-introduce them and gauge people's interest in them. And a lot of that terrain does seem quite industrial in its design.

Hmm, not really my thing.

The spider mask just doesn't make sense to me. Looks goofy and toy like. Same goes for spiders on his cape.

It's worth noting at the end of the article:

"We will be bringing you the full scoop on what’s on the way for Warcry later this month, including more on the Broodmaster, the rest of his Brood, and who they’ll be battling, so keep checking in on the Warhammer Community website."

That almost confirms it will be a new boxed set (which implies very heavily to me the terrain will be in there) with the "and who they'll be battling," part.

I think Chaos Dwarves are a good guess, but really pretty much anything is fair game at this point.

The Hobgitz or Hobgrotz or whatever could be included...with perhaps their overseer/taskmaster? That terrain looks very, very Chaos Dwarf to me.

Nah, it's plastic. It does look very halloweeny tho!

It's an ok model, I do wish they gave him tiny little arms to make it 8 instead of 6 limbs, right now he's an insectmaster.

And your eyes are not deceiving you – that really is the severed head of a giant Chaos-warped spider he’s using as a mask.


Yes, the model's plastic.

Warcry has not yet recycled any old nostalgia pieces.
The best part of the game is it dont get stuck in same old concepts of "here comes the obvious Khorne gang" or "bloated green gang of pestilence" its just a bunch of everyday chaos gladiators everyone can relate to. So, I say nay to chaos dwarves gang.

Think exactly the same. A bit weird that he's 6 legged and not 8 legged. As you said, they should have out another pair of limbs, even if it was tiny ones.

Despite that, i think it's a cool model, though the swords are maybe a bit too eccentric

I didn't claim that. I simply claimed that the terrain being industrially themed is not indicative of this being a chaos dwarf release, as the one actual mini shown is most definitely not a chaos dwarf.

It's not a bad guess for chaos dwarves. Warcry would be the ideal way to re-introduce them and gauge people's interest in them. And a lot of that terrain does seem quite industrial in its design.


except the one mini shown is quite decisively not a dwarf.

Given that the previous teaser nursery rhyme it was said that the Varanguard were the ones who last fought the chaos spider worshippers and forced them down below the Varanspire, I think its likely that if this is a chaos v chaos box (which seems somewhat unlikely as the last big warcry box was not), that it will be chaos spiders v varanguard.

Definitely not Umbraneth Elves, as the spiders are more or less established to be chaos worshippers, what with talk about the "eightfold watcher" and the eight pointed swirled star icon on his belt which matches the icon on the doorway into the area below the Varanspire in the previous teaser, and talk about it being a chaos warped spider that the guy is wearing as a mask, etc. The most recent article describes a "daemonic menace" lurking in the wastes, which is no doubt a reference to the spiderfolk, etc.

Hobgitz are already destruction though.

Yeah, seems like a big miss, unless the fluff is that the more limbs you have the more holy you are (ergo Broodmasters are 6-limbed, and then the Broodmother or whatever is 8-limbed).

It's a beautiful miniature. Very unique and fits well within the established lore of AoS. I like it. Maybe this will lead to a totally new playable faction of spider worshipers!

Are people really upset because it's spider themed and only has six appendages instead of 8? Seems like a pretty silly thing to get upset about...

I think that guy is a dark elf mutant. His swords all have that dark elfy feel to them, like a silly number of angled protrusions from the blade, and lanky black hair.

Bold of you to post this when the same post that you quoted literally states:

Bro all I said was the terrain looks like it has something to do with Chaos Dwarfs and you countered with some amazing leaps of logic, of which the most astounding must be that Faction B cannot be Chaos Dwarfs because the model from Faction A is not a Chaos Dwarf, although claiming that the terrain in the video was not part of the preview is also pretty up there (but the padding text on WarCom apparently is)

Its a nice enough mini (barring the load-bearing sash), but... eh. Spider baddies just don't do anything for me anymore. The fantasy genre has really beaten them into the ground, especially if they're potentially elf-adjacent.

I was trying to illustrate yours. Unsurprisingly, the point went over your head, albeit I suspect logical thinking is a bigger issue than language here. As a reminder, my original statement.

The terrain is also new and looks very... industrial. Gonna go out on a limb and say Chaos Dwarfs will tie in to this somehow.


From this you concluded that I must be thinking that one of the warbands will be CD, and countered that it will not because the spider figure is not a CD.

Maybe its my fault for not being clear on the point, but the terrain in the box doesn't automatically point towards the inclusion of a specific faction. In this case theres nothing particularly chaos dwarven about the terrain being pictured, nor in the previously previewed artwork of it.

There was a point earlier about hobgrots already being destruction so not chaos. .

Without going back to reference it, but;
A. It could just be hobgrots like in old lore weren’t particularly Chaos, just the Chaos dwarfs anyway. More slaves and all that.
B. These dwarfs could also just be destruction anyway. They aren’t gonna be called Chaos Duardin either way. So Hashut or some other name sprinkled in possibly. Then they’re just following their god who isn’t necessarily Chaos any more..
