I was planning on this starter set to be my way into Underworlds, but seeing the models makes me think again. I really like the Slaaneshi models, but they really didn't do the Lumineth a good service. They're so awkward and really don't do it for me, especially as I generally like their AoS range.

I feel like the mage and greatswords woman will be saved by kitbashing new heads on them; the archer would do well with a different set of legs; the gracefullness of that post is totally lost with robes and armor on.

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.


The plan is that the latest season and previous season remain available and in print. So you can buy Nightvault now but it will start to disappear when the new season comes out in the coming months, as will all the season 2 warbands. The Beastgrave starter sets will stay in stock, as will all the season 3 warbands. So at any point there will be a choice of two starters.

The release of the Shadespire starter sets warbands in separate warband boxes was an anomaly - when they made Nightvault they stopped making the Shadespire starter boxes for some reason. But they kept making all the season 1 warbands, so they repackaged the starter set into two warband boxes.

That won't happen with the Nightvault set, as they've just kept it available to buy all year instead. I'd expect them to be mostly gone by Christmas.

(Obviously this is all just about the Underworlds game itself - the minis will be repacked and sold separately if they haven't been already most likely).

That, and the fact he's limited to a niche game mode that will not see a lot of play (definitely not at tournaments and such).

This Slaves to Darkness warband is led by a pair of sisters – one a wizard, the other a warrior. It’s good to see that even amongst Chaos-worshipping mortals seeking to desecrate a living mountain, families stick together.

Yeah, those are great warriors, and probably a new gold standard for chaos sorcerers.

I'm so on board with these folks. Chaos Warriors is the Warband I have been most looking forward to since the game was released and this is the first faction of the three I have been really hoping for to come out (Chaos Warriors, Freeguild, and Deepkin). The models do not disappoint either.....absolutely fantastic.

Between these and the top-notch Slaanesh models in Direchasm, Underworlds is going to be getting a lot of purchases from me soon. Especially if that Seraphon band is as cool as the Chameleon and we get a Deepkin band (which seems pretty likely).

Finally! A warband where the team wizard is not also the leader.
Next thing you know, we’ll have one that has a magic guy, a sneaky guy, a shooty guy, and a punchy guy, who all have different inspire conditions…

This Palpatine looking thing is supposed to be a woman? How?

Though it's pretty funny to see Chaos Warriors of all people to make functional, practical armour for their members. Now if some other factions I won't name could join them in the ranks of not-stupid...

You're kind of late with that, there is already one in SC. Though nice to see it's not one off.

You could easily make more of them, even, with Forge World AoS female head set, but they decided to retire it in favour of more junk without rules no one asked for

What kind of beast do you suppose Slambo Jr has skinned for his cape? Scaly cloak, but humanish hand. Some random chaos mutant? Or maybe something Seraphon? We know they're one of the warbands, so it could be a nice tie in (though I doubt the seraphon will have any purple members.)

I'm definitely getting that warband! With a couple other members from another source, like a couple of Chaos Hounds or maybe the Ungors with bows from the Despoilers, it would also make a great little skirmish group for other rulesets.

Right behind you.

Roadmap for 2021!
Spoiler:

Slaves to Darkness in January, Seraphon in February, March is SOULBLIGHT(!!!!!), April is Bonesplitta Orruks it looks like, May is OSSIARCH BONEREAPERS(!!!!), and June is Idoneth(aka: MINE!!!!).

Another good shot of Khagra's Despoilers:

A heckin' interesting card:


Oh, and one last thing...


A second model from the "Starblood Stalkers" warband!
We won’t say too much more about Kixi Taka right now, but that mysterious sphere in their left hand could have major ramifications for Direchasm

So they're doing vampires in march. That's probably where all the rapiers in the rumour engine are coming from.

4875 points Word Bearers & Pact Daemons
2000 points Har'Kias Sept Hunter Cadre

Well, it looks like bones, but also like an insectoid mask. So it could be something like Forest Goblins (Spider Clan?) too.

Yeah that silhouette clearly has a rapier in the same style as the rumour engines.

Now... is the warband just a warband or a tie in to a new army release?

That's true too. We've gotten a Gloomspite Gitz(Zarbag) warband and a Evil Sun worshipping warband...a Spiderfang one would round it out!
