Sounds like they're done.

From Warhammer Community:

The new Orruk Warclans and Stormcast Eternals battletomes are available to pre-order in August. A third battletome will follow these in October – something a little more Chaos-flavoured, we hear. And this is just the beginning – there’s a lot in store for the new edition of Warhammer Age of Sigmar.

Pictures and everything are up.

Unlike Adam (seriously, just email the man a list of talking points before the show), the WarCom people apparently know things:
Both battletomes are pre-order in August.
Some manner of Chaos book will be October.

Next Saturday will be a 40k Ork preview

Damn, I was hoping we might just get a sneak peek at the rumoured 'chaos-worshippindg Duardin forgemasters'. Ah well... :-/

Also, no new faction-specific terrain pieces or endless spells? The Kruelboyz have so much potetial for the latter!

Edit : "A third battletome will follow these in October – something a little more Chaos-flavoured, we hear." Ahhhhh, fingers crossed.

and that's not all

Can you keep a secret? We’ve heard whispers that there are even more new miniatures on the way for the Stormcast Eternals and Orruk Warclans as well. We’ll let you know more as soon as we hear back from our infiltrator grots.


Hopefully Ironjawz get something

The Stormcast archer used thumb draw, that's an improvement from GW designer, but the arrow placed on right side of the bow would still fall off, kinda weird considered the other archer model placed the arrow on the left side.

I think i like the Axe version of the Ork troops more, coupled with their helmets and round shields gives them kind of a vaguely Viking look.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

They have in the past. For example, they brought back the Skullvane Manse as the Warscryer Citadel during the Malign Portents event.

I'm surprised by the range of options on the kits. The monsters have 2-3 heads, different gear for the riders, a lot of little touches.

Probably the most disappointing kit will be the crossbows, simply because it looks like a pretty static 3-model unit.

I think we've crossed into bizarro hobby world. The orcs, previously some of the most stylized misproportioned models, are getting a true scale style refresh whereas the sigmarines, previously somewhat proportionally correct, are getting theri weapons and accessories cranked up to JRPG levels. Interesting...

What? Their weapons are just as much Jrpgs than the previous Stormcast. Look at the huge hammers of the retributors for example.

What? This Stormcast are MUCH better proportionally correct than old chunky stormcast. And their weapons. I mean, just compare this new archers to old stormcast archers.

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.

It will now be all about rules and how good will old units be in the new book.

I received my Dominion today and scale of some new Stormcasts units feels wrong. It is like if we got scout chamber. Only Annihilators feel the same.

Stormcasts finally look like humans for the most part, and not like armored Gorillas
And these Orks have itsy-bitsy little leggies

While I do preferer Sigmarines in silver, I am one of the 3 guys who still like them on gold anyway, so I am quite happy with them all of them.

As a day 0 defender of them, I am glad they took this strides to make them better.

But I can't fool no one: Kruleboyz are DA winnaz 'ere.

Hopeful to see more for everyone in Destruction. Please, gimme more crude siege weapons.

Are you seriously arguing the model on the right is more proportional, more realistic and less ludicrous in terms of their getup compared to the one on the left.

For those surprised about my comment above regarding proportions, I would point out that I specifically referenced weapons and accessories. People seem to be missing that. The ones previewed below from the first page look ridiculously huge to me with axe and hammer heads almost the size of an armored chest. If that's no different than what came before in AOS then so be it but it still looks huge to me.

Spoiler:

They've always been like that, they just look larger because the men wielding them are no longer almost as wide as they are tall

Nice Multipart alternatives. I will skip the dominion annihilators now and go for these sweet multipart kit instead.
So overall a very nice update, still not keen on the orc at all( even the grots look a bit weird) but I will add the Bastian carthalos model to my list of must haves.

So far the new edition has added Annihilators multipart kit, Bastian and Yndrasta. Pretty happy with that.

big grandpa is cool, but someone tell the marine chaplain to stop cosplaying and get back to work.
The crocmonster is fine, the sloth-troll is horrid (good idea, but i'd have to toss holy water every 5 minutes on that thing if I kept it around, truly gross in a good way), everything else feels flat? I am not a fan of the bog orcs still.

Ooh thunderstorm on Dominion release day, best get on with those Stormcast

Liking pretty much everything that was shown, with the SC Vigilors and the Kruleboyz crocodile/sloth monster being my personal faves from each faction. I would have liked to have seen something about the new terrain though. And the Hammers of Sigmar getting yet another(admittedly very good looking) special character feels like a bit of overkill at this point. But minor gripes overall.

Anyone else hoping for updated Black Orcs? Pretty confident they’re the oldest Orc kit left in production.

The kit itself isn’t all that great, and they do look somewhat out of place due to the smoothness of their rumour.
