I'm genuinely excited for this. Undead things have always looked cool but they didn't seem to get much support.

I swear I'm not a paid shill for Anvil Industry. I’d be willing if they wanted to pay me.

I'm guessing reboxed with round bases and doubling or maybe even tripling the quantity in the box.

Skeletons look great.

So, is this supposed to be kinda an AOS version of Shadow War where you'll be able to make warbands out of your minis from regular armies?

Yup, I don't think they are getting replaced. No 'old' models so far have been replaced, just reboxed or gone OOP.
They still look pretty good, reboxing them as 20 man units for 26 € is my guess.

It's less just "OMG SKELETONS!!1!!" and more the fact that there's some lore interspersed with what we got.

This is the first time, outside of Wight Kings, that we've gotten undead that genuinely recall their past lives.
It's also our "first look" at the cities that Nagash overran/took.

How about this?...

These are our best skeleton miniatures ever – every one of them is as dynamic and detailed as you could hope for, and these are clip-together models, needing no glue at all to assemble!

nice skelettons indeed.

I was lucky in some way I just ordered the old skeletton box 1 week away. It s been a long time I wanted these.

Still it will be impossible not to buy the new ones. They are really dungeon like don t you think ?

Interesting that the facebook group is WarhammerUnderworlds, no mention of Shadespire. Could mean nothing, or could mean the possibility is kept open to release more games in the series.

Maybe just a new starter set every year or so set in a different location, with some rules updates or new rules specific to that location.

The skeletons are alright, but not really that great. Compare those with Mierce Miniature's Jutes, and they are pale in comparison, imo.

No, the Shadespire game only uses the minis that they've been showing off (though I guess nothing's stopping you from converting your own version). Each unit has cards, and it's a hex-based deck building/dice game.

The skeletons in the art for Shadespire are "citizens" of the city.
This is the "elite" guard of the city of Shadespire.

While I too also prefer the Mierce versions, these will have the advantage of being plastic, and most likely be very nicely priced too.

Of course, they'll probably also be more in line with GW's bonkers heroic scale XXmm too, but...

Strongly disagree. I get that it's kool kids to dislike heroic scale, but GW's modern 6-6.5 heads/30-32mm models are hardly the four heads tall mutants of the early 90s, and having ordered or examined in-person a few human-size Mierce models now I have no clue how folk use them for gaming given how fragile they are. Maybe the Mierce models are better for competition painters or people who buy armies to sit on shelves, but the minor loss in "realism" of the GW sculpts is more than compensated for by virtue of them being actual, practical gaming pieces - when GW can resist sticking top-heavy giganto-characters atop ridiculous spindly swirly thingies they do that well at least.

Hopefully these are available separately, or at the very least GW for once don't make the bloody box a limited run so the ebay resellers can flog them cheapo. The only thing I can find to dislike about these is that they're not reworked Tomb Guard or Zombies, and give my baseline level of suspicion of GW and AoS particularly that means they've probably done a fairly good job.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?

These look absolutely great!! Would've preferred some new Zombies but these will probably just be used for Shadespire, I have my Black Plague Zombies for AoS so there is no rush!

I wouldn't be surprised if they do some of those too, tbh. All good things come to those who wait and all that.

I had a lot of fun trying Shadespire at Adepticon, and I like the look of these guys a lot more than the (admittedly well sculpted) Bloodbound and Stormcast that are coming in the box. Great minis.

I love that there's so much love for skellingtons. i like these ones a lot, though my favorite type would be any that remind me of jason and the argonauts, but that's another story.

Anyhow, i am much more interested in this now.

Colour me pleasantly surprised by the not "OMG11ZZZZ" styling they went with. A vague glimmer of hope that some future Warhammer minis will be useful outside of their setting. I suspect these will be quite large though and may not fit well with other model ranges.

They're the same size as their current range of skellies.

I am so chuffed for Shadespire.
Seeing this video gives me a lot of hope that we won't be stuck playing sigma rites and khorneflakes forever while waiting for new content to be released.

I was thinking about the possible stuff for Shadespire the other day, and undead was high on my want list. It's been awhile since GW answered my prayers, and doing it so well to boot!

I think they look great. I'm just worried about the scale creep. GW skellies fit on 20mm squares. These are now onto what appears to be 32mm rounds. Are these going to look like Ogre skellies compared to the older ones?
