Show more lizards! Bare you skinks! Flash me your sauruses, GW!

Also, pleasantly surprised they went with them/they for the skink, i did notice they did the same for Celennar in LRL battletome.

Can only wonder what the second half of the year will be.
That’s the 8 warbands.

When did the other seasons starters come?
Direchasm is late releasing right? So perhaps this is getting us caught up again for the schedule?
(I don’t remember them being one a month before..?)

I think the previous starters were in September. They weren’t one a month but they came in pairs every couple of months or so generally.

Ah yes they did didn’t they.
Still, we could see a shorter season 4 and a 5 starting September.

Either way, I want Idoneth. And probably the lizards and vampire/pirate things..

If the Greenskin Warband is indeed Bonesplittaz, could this image be potentially a member of it?



This might be an old concept drawing for one of the Ironjawz characters, but none of the minis really resemble it. Though I could be wrong and the one with the bird head is what became of that art piece...

I want to be wrong though. I like the artwork design way better.

I hope so, if only to see new Bonesplitterz designs that aren't just carried over from 8th ed WHFB, the skull design in the art is really sick.

AFAIK, it's indeed concept art for the Ironjawz warband (which became bird head in reality...)

I love the skink priest, but I'm also disappointed. Underworlds is a great way to update older models, but we've already got a new plastic skink priest and it already looks good. I'm still holding out hope for a Kroxigor though. Or a salamander. (Obviously we'll get quite a few more lizardmen, but a non-priest skink hero would have been nice.)

Vampires would match the rumor engines (and the Shattered Realms books), the Bonereapers have had obvious rumor engines too. Now, do we think the crab claw is going to be for the idoneth band? And are we guessing the other warband is Bonespittaz or Spider riders? I'll happy buy either one

Character types or single models like the Kroc are perfect for Underworlds as it then gives that character use for AoS.
A lone Saudis or skink looks cool but that’s that, I’d rather a new kit for a unit that needs it..

Right behind you.

It literally cannot be anything other than Bonereapers, unless they add a new faction that uses the 'soulgem' aesthetic.

I'm so excited for half of these warbands- slaanesh and lizardmen (if they have a good saurus or two) followed by Vamps and Idoneth. The presumed Greenskins and Boneskins dont do anything for me, at least in terms of the idea of them. Maybe the models will blow me away.

I recall a Chaos Gargant getting rules for Underworlds inside of a White Dwarf. I'm not counting on a Mega Gargant getting a Warband outside of White Dwarf.

Mega-Gargants are too big, IMHO. The main issue is their base - it spreads way too much on the already limited Underworld map. A "normal" Gargant could do it, especially if they make the miniature so that the base can be more suited to the map's square.

Yeah the gargant in Underworlds is like a multiple warbands fight it kind of thing.
It’s big and tough.
I think I have the card for him somewhere..

As others have mentioned, White Dwarf had rules for a gargant. He was like 20 wounds and I think it was multiple warbands vs. him. However, the chances of a dedicated gargant are almost nothing. First, warbands are all $35, which would be a lot cheaper than the plastic gargant, which they are selling normally in groups of two. Second, Mollog is actually pretty "small". Dankhold troggoths have the ability to grow and shrink to fit the size of their environment, so the one we get in Underworlds is way smaller than the regular dankhold troggoth kit, which is closer to giant size. Mollog is bigger than Ogor, but even so. Finally, I'm not sure how well a gargant could even compete. Mollog and the Beastclaw raider have chaf units, squigs and gnoblars, so the player has more options. Squigs can't hold objectives, so I guess a gargant could have special rules where it could "destroy" objectives or something, but gaining glory from anything besides kills may be hard.

Vamps, vamps, vamps <3

I got a 50€ voucher as a gift from colleagues to some LGS that I'll use to get Direchasm. And by the time it arrives I might have given myself the first dose of a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine, so by the time the vamps roll around I might to play again.

Up for preorder next week.

Weird seeing order and chaos themed dice packs instead of specifically Slaanesh & Lumineth. They do include the magic dice though.

I wonder if it will stay at £50 or if they'll throw another £5 on the price this year?

There's nothing wrong with them, but the red & black chaos set doesn't really suit the Slaaneshi half of the box, which is a bit disappointing given they're one of this season's flagship warbands.

Do we have an idea on price of the starter for Direchasm? Is it likely to be the same as Beastgrave or.. will there be an incremental creep...

Hope its the same.

2+2=5 for sufficiently large values of 2.

I'd imagine it will be the same, not because I wouldn't put it past GW to raise the price, but because they already raised the price of Nightvault/Beastgrave from 60 USD to 75 USD and the Warbands five bucks too. Since this was a pretty recent change I imagine at least the starter and the first few warbands will be priced according to this model. Now when we get next year's price increase in the summer it may be a different story.
