Yeah the Elf on the left looks like a trainee sculpt in some respects, very awkward pose given the size of that sword.

The one thing that's bugging me with the Hedonite Twins are their weird neck earrings. Just big hoops on the side of the head that just seem out of place.

I get that Hedonites have painful hoop piercings, but these just seem random. They're not connected to cloaks or bits of cloth. I thought the Archer's was his quiver at first.

The Slaanesh have a more classic action pose whilst the Lumineth have a more classic static/guarding pose. So the Slaanesh feel a bit more dynamic which might be why some like them more. I think the other aspect is that the Lumineth are "more of the same" of what we've already got - yes there's new things like the owl and the twinsword; but its more of what they've sort of got already vibe; whilst the Slaanesh is mortals on foot which is something we've not had in decades. It's new, fresh and presents ideas and hints at things that could come in the future for Slaanesh Mortals. Already it teases 3 new potential unit types - archers; glaves and beasts.

I definitely prefer it when warbands expand on the AoS setting with things that we've not seen before.

Slaaneshi warband looks good - the Aelves don't do it for me - the poses all look awkquad

From th elook of them I suspect they are actually big hoop earrings. I'll be surprised if they are actually both coming out of the neck.

Absolutely love the Slaanesh models. Hope this bodes well for EC in 40k, and for a larger Mortals release in AoS.

I wonder if elf mages have contract or something to always stand in dumb poses. Staff in one hand, owl in the other, one leg on rock, no way he can actually cast spells doing all of it at once

The archer is kinda dumb too - legs together on uneven rock at angle for very poor balance, no way she remains standing after loosing arrow. I'd even say they would look better if you actually swapped the poses - mage with both legs together would actually have one less thing to do and her standing on one leg would kind of counterbalance the bow with the other. GW really missed the trick here...

The Lumineth are showing off abnormal elfen grace based on meditating poses. They don't need to brace their legs, they have strength and posture that allows them to stand straight like that.

It's just like how Daughters of Khaine are dancing on the battlefield and basically running around wearing almost nothing because they can bend/dance/leap past enemy blades .

I like the Lumineth models because I dislike elves and these look exactly as they should, stuck up donkey-caves probably failing at everything they do while thinking they are better than everyone else.

Obviously, loving the Slaanesh completely.

Lumineth, I mean the
Swordmaster is nice,
The archer ok,don’t like the bowstring look, even though yes it’s possible for multi stringed now magic or not.
Hammer guy, just the helmet that’s the issue, he’s ok himself.
Mage, not a fan, just like the ones released for the army so far.

I can't say I'm massive fan of either warband. However, I have never painted High Elves or Slaanesh before so I'm going to take this as a challenge.

When GW release the warband minis as a separate kit for AoS use, do they use the coloured plastic for the sprues still?

Far as I'm aware its exactly the same kits, just put in a different box. That said pre-coloured plastic will take undercoating like any other.

The Slaaneshi team are the winners here, but the Lumineth aren't too bad even though they've continued the main releases habit of awkwardly balancing on rocks.

Another decent starter.

Yes, I think that's the norm - according to the webstore pictures, Spiteclaw's Swarm is in grey now, while the Underworlds set had it in brown.

I was so looking forward to this, the box art for the Lumineth looked fantastic but the reality of the models has just left me cold (other than the hammer guy), the Slaneesh look fantastic but just are not my cup of tea.
Both factions seem to have some pretty interesting inspire triggers though and some of the other bits and bobs (like aetherquartz) could be good or at least add a new dynamic.
Range 5 archer is just nuts though! Looking forward to seeing the cards in some detail so we can judge how things will shape up for the next season.

Are these once they are just in ETB style boxes (aka no cards for Underworlds).
That could be when the change happens?

Certainly Spiteclaw is.
As they will have had to produce more since S1 ended.

As for others it may just be once they sell through the coloured ones.

That glaive wielding Slaaneshi is magnificent and not obviously chaotic in any way if you smooth over that one symbol.

The heads on the two helmetless elves just don't look like they're attached right at all.Sit very strangely on the bodies in addition to having weird facial expressions.

Right behind you.

It's the shoulder armor. It's seated in a different manner than one might expect, so it causes the heads to look 'off'.

It took me awhile with regards to building my Lumineth sets. That kept throwing me off.

Underworlds has suddenly exloded in my town with up to 20 people playing on a Monday night in the last 6 weeks up from 0 in the last 2 years.

I had been buying everything.

The models in the box set.
The elves are IMHO the worst warband aesthetically, and the Slaaneshi are close to the best.
As everyone else says, it is 90% posing for the elves. They have pushed the meditating/fine balance too far and it just looks odd.

I'll probably pass on this starter yet again. Each starter box they come out with for this game and the models keep getting worse.

edit: just looked on the US site and it looks like the nightvault warbands weren't released on their own? Seems odd to me when the models from the original shadespire box are still available.

edit again: It seems the nightvault box is still being sold, so nevermind.
