I'm hyped for multi-part plastics, for random chaos monsters and for the boatload of terrain (note the box looks thicker than the KT starter!)

I hope the 9 non Chaos factions were planned from the start and aren’t just shoehorned in as a response to people online complaining that it was Chaos only.


This was my first thought since the original chaos theme was so strong. Regardless, I'm glad it's expanding since I wasn't crazy about chaos-only.

Much more interested now its not just Chaos stuff hitting each other!

I'm really excited for those Chaos furies.
I'm sad that the Adepticon tease of Warcry was substantially smaller than the pictures we got from GAMA. Almost nothing new was revealed for or about Warcry.

I also honestly think it is a shame there will be non chaos factions. I prefer games that don't try to be all things to all people, but rather focus on a tight theme and do it well. There is already Warhammer Underworlds for the small scale skirmish for everybody thing. Age of Sigmar itself could even fill that hole...

Underworlds most definitely doesn't fit what I'd call a skirmish game. It's more of a board game with set teams and as far as I can see it could be played with counters instead of the miniatures. I have zero interest in Underworlds because of that but I'm really looking forward to finding out more about Warcry.

Yeah me too.
Underworlds, the models look cool enough. Gameplay also even.

But if this has that custom skirmish style I’m looking for, then I’m in.


I also would have been happy with just Chaos, or maybe expansion way down. But just lots of factions battling it out couldnwork too I guess

How'd you paint the red metal the Iron Golems wear? Is it just a red glaze over silver and then some drybrushing of silver?

Heaven and light would be my guess. Chaos warbands from Azyr wouldn't make much sense and GW have been fairly tight lipped about Hysh and its residents so far. That said I wouldn't rule out a realm of light Chaos warband in the future.


That sounds look as good of a guess as any. I think you are probably right on this one.

Looks like Screaming Bell with Sycorax Bronze on the Trim washed with Agrax Earthshade and highlight with Sycorax on the main parts and Stormhost Silver on the trim or Skullcrusher Brass?

Keen for more details on War Cry.

Are the warbands fixed? Does it slot somewhere between Path to Glory (skirmish to batallion sized battles) and Underworlds (fixed squad level combat)? Can one win, such as your Champion becoming Varangard, or is it your typical ‘biggest fish in the pond after X weeks’?

I’m totally sold on the models like, but must know more about the gameplay.

I clocked out of Warhammer at the end of 8th and went off to play other skirmish games like Guild Ball and Bushido. However, this seems totally my bag. Now teaching myself about the Mortal Realms to figure out what other Chaos Warbands will be revealed...

This was my thought too. I don't really want the Furies, but I like the bird, and the large dog/cat we saw. I love the idea that these tribes can hire monsters like necromunda gangs hire mercs.

For those not in the know what factions do those symbols represent?

So, going off what's been seen:

Spoiler:

We can identify Nighthaunt(second one down on the outer right), Ironjawz(directly beneath that), Idoneth(that icon beneath the Ironjawz is present in their book repeatedly yet isn't their actual faction icon!), Gloomspite Gitz(the crazed moon), Legion of Nagash(directly above crazed moon), what looks like Daughters of Khaine(that rune is what their dice has minus one extra set of lines for the wings), and the top two are unknowns.

I would say that the top two are Savage orcs and Sigmarines respectively.

Bones in a lower jaw shape tied together by rope? Savages seems a given.

An even circle with a lightning zap? Stormwhatever Sigmarines.


Definitely looking forward to this. Seems a nice chunky fantasy necromunda with support up front, not a just a half-dozen gangs doled out over a year and then a fat load of nothing.

Definitely Bonespittaz.
I'll be optimistic and say the sigmar one will be for Free people. Though, I assume the non chaos warbands will be made from existing models, so who knows (that doesn't mean it won't be free people, they could just use the empire models.)

If we don't get Free People, I'm going to convert the Iron Golems into Savages of Sigmar. They already have little hammer icons, and most of them have hammer weapons. There already is lore of backwards tribes sacrificing people into volcanoes for Sigmar, so it's not un-fluffy.

The Horned ones are the Darkoath looking guys that were shown fighting the Iron Golems a few months back.

I’d have thought the teeth with rope could have been something Ogre related but they are probably too big for this..

I wonder how kit ash able the various gangs will be. Like plugging bone gang arms on metal guy chests or swapping heads and etc. that there are definitely ogres and dwarfs among the humans complicates it a bit, but not if that ends up a normal thing across all the gangs.

Ironjawz, Daughters of Khaine, Legions of Nagash or FEC, Gloomspite Gitz, Idoneth Deepkin, Bonesplitters, Nighthaunts, Stormcasts.

As someone intrigued by the orruks / gobbos, the fact that there are 3 (Ironjawz, Bonesplitters, and Gloomspite Gitz) is pretty darn cool!

I don't have an interest in the Bonesplitters (the older Savage Ork line), but the other two - hmmmmm

Also wondering about using models from Underworlds here, given that a pretty fantastic variety of Gloomspite Gitz were released for it. Does it seem like that will be possible, or will there be new models, etc etc?

Same here . I've already gotten back in with Underworlds, but it'd be awesome to have a skirmish game option that doesn't require cards for folks who aren't into that

We don't really have information on the non-Chaos factions yet, but the current thinking is that while the Chaos bands are all new and custom made for this game, the non-Chaos factions will simply use suitable models from Age of Sigmar.

If you have the option for a goblin with a bow or a pointy stick, it won't matter whether you get that goblin out of a Night Goblin box, or a Shadespire band, or from a third party. It's just a goblin with a bow or pointy stick.

The bigger question is how much customization the rules will allow in general, and whether there will be much of a difference between the Chaos bands that have kits made for the game and non-Chaos bands that may draw their models from kits with more limited options (possibly going all the way back to Fantasy's rigid regimental organization).

Plus at least with the Iron Golems we get different races serving Chaos, so if you don't like ogres and dwarfs, you can instead convert a minotaur to take the ogre's place and an irate halfling from the new Blood Bowl kit because you know you want a Chaos halfling.

I expect that even if the rules end up sucking, you can do a good deal with models and conversions in Warcry and won't have to worry about whether your models conform to exact standards.

I don't particularly like the model, but at least it's a step up from Fyreslayers. The one I painted for Warhammer Quest had the entire appearance of his skin ruined by having tons of runes plastered all over it. Completely got in the way of getting a sense of anatomy.

This one could look good by cutting off the elbow hammers, giving him new weapons and maybe removing the helmet topper (or adding a horsehair tail to it so it doesn't look like it's... just there).
