There really isn't anything else it could be beyond Vampires. The big thing that seems to have kept this nonsense from feeling too feasible was the insistence on "vampirates!!1!" that people keep making because of the crabclaw arm we saw elsewhere.

The crab claw a bit. And the more so the mass of pirate like swords and bits.

Except the problem is that there was nothing tying those two together.

Well I wouldn’t have included the crab claw in piratical themed rumours.
But the sabres and such all tie together.
It’s the first mention I’ve seen of the crab claw being part of it too just above.

I’m thinking it’s the ur-grub bits. Those slowly take you over, right?

Ur-grubs, eh?

Wait.
Spoiler:


Oh yeah, it's all coming together.

In all seriousness, its a shame that they don't explore some of these mechanics a bit more in the game. Obviously, it'd be impossible to have these tomes and upgrades be depicted for every model in the warband, but things like the Avatar of the Ur-Grub or shadow daemons, or any other fun little fluff blurb in Underworlds could be fun to represent on the tabletop. Like imagine if a model in your warband gets three or more "aspects of the Ur-grub" and you can replace them with this guy
Spoiler:
. Discard their current stat card and replace it with one for the Avatar, or something.

Maybe the crab claw is from the Idoneth warband and it's a guy riding on top a giant crab or something.

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.








So they took a generic chaos warrior body and placed a female head on it? That's it?!
Why couldn't they put in an effort to make this warband stand out?

I font think generic chaos would sculpt such bulky armour like that in male and female versions (I say generic as slaanesh is the exception).
This almost says that all the helmeted warriors all along could have been either gender.

I mean...she's wearing heavy plate, it absolutely makes sense she's not looking like a catwalk model. Fortunately GW Is moving away from combat heels and boobplates where not applicable (they make sense for DoK or Slaanesh, not so much for Undivided or Khorne...)

To be fair, heels began as a military (specifically cavalry) fashion for men

She's a bit too bulky. Take Valkia, -boob plates.

Yeah, standard chaos warrior armor doesn't work particularly well with female heads. The Darkoath Warqueen worked much better in that regard.

The base model is pretty cool anyway and a head swap should be no problem.

A shame. This warband would have been a must buy if the female figures actually looked female.

Slambo impostor look kinda scuffed, the fat resin slambo looks more imposing and confident.

Also using sword and carry shield instead of just 2 axes, just bad cosplay.

I double dare you to wear the 2" wide chunks that were cavalry heels and then try to wear the wibbly-wobble 5"-ers gaming companies love to put women figures in and tell me of your experience

Need to talk to Isabelle.....

Its possible but hopefully others are right and its Soulblight. Also we have not seen a Scourge warband yet and I guess this could fit...givent the role they are currently playing on both sides of the Morathi campaign.

The new White Dwarf preview mentions a whole article on the Grimscuttle Tribes, who are spider-riding grots from the realm of death. I think that makes another grot warband seem more likely. Personally, I'm hoping for grots instead of more orcs. We already have two orc warbands, and I feel like grots have a lot more interesting avenues they can take than another group of tough, hard-hitting orcs.

I wouldn't read much into the Tome Celestial. It's a supplemental thing like the Index Astartes articles are.
