Thing about saying Lizardmen are culturally offensive... which culture and how? Really if we get down to it the sentiment that all of south and central America can be boiled down to one culture is more offensive than anything Lizardmen do. Settings to do more than just have X race with Y aesthetic to be offensive. The closest thing might be the Mongol-esque Ogre Kingdoms vibe, which they moved away from a while ago anyways.

I'd say normal Orcs, but I think the Kruel Boys have stolen their thunder as the "baseline" orcs. They even have the artillery.

With that said, probably Chaos Dwarves or Grotbag Scuttlers (though just using KO rules works and two "high flying" armies would step on each other's toes). Maybe wolf riders as an all cav destruction army, just to be different?

I also wouldn't mind the Tomb Kings returning, as I always thought just having them be Order aligned "undead" from the realm of light that hated Nagash would work (the early stuff talked about the hostile prismatic deserts of the realm a lot and the TK used light magic to power themselves). The OBR did take over some of their themes, though. I guess recurring chaff with a magic/shooting slant would be different enough?

Some Cities models that actually represent the realms would be nice, too. Slide the classic stuff back over to the Old World where they can be the Empire/Dwarves/Elves they were meant to be, rather than the weird refugee/mishmash collection they are currently.

That is a really, really good idea actually about the TK. I second this!

Also, I'd like to see Longbeards stay. Love me some classic beardy dwarves!

I'd love realm-based conversion kits. Mixed-race units for CoS would be great too, and might provide a means to cut back on the warscroll bloat without cutting units out of the picture entirely (especially given those units will likely be sticking around in production for TOW anyways).

I heard recently that Chaos Duardin are coming in 2022. Makes sense given the name drops they got in OWC--Hashut explicitly mentioned even.

here's a thought, we know something "chaosy" releases next, most people assume it's an army update... what if the oct/nov AOS release is chaos dwarves?

Possible but I can't remember many things from the Rumor Engine that fits with them.

Could see them being an early 2022 army teased at Christmas

As a new faction I think

MALERION'S ELVEN ARMY

is the only god-led, faction still not released.

And an obvious chance to revamp an old range (just like DoK was revamped).

'ere we go!

Wouldn't be surprised (or unhappy) if Darkling Covens are rolled in as it is revealed they were working for Malerion the whole time.
