I totally understand some disappointment but I hope that what we’re getting is a Legions of Hashut army that contains not just chaos dwarfs, but also Horns of Hashut, hobgrotz, those bull centaur fellas and more.


Not sure how good the odds of that are in the foreseeable future. We know the Horns are in the Slaves to Darkness battletome slated for the end of the year. Is there any instance of the same unit featuring in multiple battletomes?


Chaos Spawn appear in 3; Beasts of Chaos (it can choose to have a Mark of one of the gods), Slaves to Darkness (it must choose a Mark, or Undivided), Disciples of Tzeentch (no additional rule as it's automarked Tzeentch).

Wouldn't be beyond the pale for Horns of Hashut to appear in a Legions Battletome with the addition of a keyword as the only difference, or I could see it simply being FAQ'd to alter the Slaves warscroll to have the additional keyword

Rather than just going "Well ackchyually!" and making excuses for/defending everything GW does can you please accept that some people might be annoyed that GW is finally giving attention to the legions of Hashut, but made them humans rather than AoS Chaos Dwarfs?

Youve stated that it's less important about what you say, than who you are. Thats the very definition of ad hominem.

Not that this matters much to me, or anyone else obviously. Its that sort of blinkered ignorance that goes unmoderated which gives the reputation that precedes this site. Your comment wont be moderated, but this one certainly will be, which illustrates merely one problem.

I think he more means that no one is going to come after you if you stop posting here. You stop posting, the site and world move on.
Indeed many people come and go over the years for all kinds of reasons and most users find it easier just to stop posting/drift away and then drift back under the same account than to delete accounts when leaving.

No, really, none of us know who you are. It's just a statement of fact, reinforcing that there is no social obligation. If anything your posts here read as far more hostile than his, definitely sway more toward ad hominem, and are certainly off topic. The mods aren't perfect but this is hardly an example.

So you change your account name, but continue down the same path.....

Back on topic of Horns of Hashut. I would like the Chaos Dwarves to return. I would rather the Horns of Hashut having been Chaos Dwarves, or Hob-goblin as they had been part of the old Chaos dwarf forces. To me this just seems like someone at GW heard two groups of people shouting out "When are we getting Chaos Dwarves?" and "When will humans become an army in their own right again?" and decided they could maim two birds with one lump of plastic.

Looks like the box set might be Horns of Hashut against the Rotmire Creed - which seem Nurglish but they aren't listed in the S2D leak.

I’m not sure about this one. Maybe with less bamboo I’d like him more

Without a swamp base, the tiny stilts are silly

And his weapon looks very very ineffective. Especially against the other warbands

I quite like it. Maybe not Chaos? As DaveC says, they aren’t in the Slaves to Darkness tome, but the Horns of Hashut are.

I’m thinking they are part of the Maggotkin instead. Perhaps GW is finally doing something with all the set up for the Order of the Fly that Josh Reynolds did. Those they are based in Ghyran these appears to be their Ghur cousins - and as a way for Maggotkin to get Mortals

No buboes/sign of mutation makes me think these are either Order or Destruction aligned.

Waaaay less likely to be Destruction aligned, though.

Another win for me.

I really like WarCry’s designs. None of them feel not-Chaos, but you can tell the design team have greater freedom to go a bit more out there.

For me, that deepens the appeal of Chaos as a whole. If you recall, the Norse/Marauders of the Old World worshipped Chaos, but weren’t necessarily frothing maniacs. Kind of “CofE” Chaos Worshippers, as opposed to Westboro “yip yip wibble pants on head insane” Chaos Worshippers.

Good I'll take a Red Harvest style box rather than a second edition, the game needs a few fixes but not a new edition. The Rotmire Creed will probably end up in Maggotkin?

There's a decent chance I'll buy a combo box of these guys and hashut warband. The previous box only had the a few darkoath warband members i was interested in getting, and frankly it's not even worth buying the teams individually, as much as I may want not-Conan.

One thing to note is that many of the current Warcry Warbands aren't bound to a single Chaos God.

Yes many of them clearly would lean closer toward one or two of the gods more than the others, but they are all basically independent. The idea being that they've each got their own little gods who are, in reality, just fronts for Greater Demons to pretend to be lesser gods to get the worship of the people.

So its fully possible for two local tribes of the same faction to be worshipping their own god, but behind the scenes one is worshipping a Lord of Change and the other a Bloodthirster.


The Slaves to Darkness novella from the first wave of them also gave a really neat showing of how Tribes who are more aware of the demons they follow; are more apt to have standards for those gods/demons to rise too. Ergo if their Greater Demon isn't upholding their end, they will be tempted by others more openly. It introduced a neat dynamic of power whereby these mortals were still damned for worshipping Chaos; but at the same time were not all the "blind" devotees.

I'm hoping that with Hashut coming out to play that there will be a bigger lean on actual minor gods of chaos.

Because honestly Chaos has always seemed far too orderly with every thing divided so neatly between the big 4.

To me they look like mosquito bites. Either way, I think the model is pretty cool and should be fun to paint using Contrast paints. Not big fan of the stilts though.

This model looks like it could benefit from more exotic basing. I may have to consider picking up a 3D printer and bucketloads of Epic Basing STL's.

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.

Has a lot of character, but I don't particularly care for the character.

Definitely think it needs a more fitting base, but it will still look a bit silly running around on the same terrain as everyone else.

Agreed, a few rough edges but generally speaking the core rules are brilliant. Nothing needed that couldn't be done with an eratta IMO, the main thing missing from the core rules is a proper campaign system--that they added later as the Trial of Champions rules.

Also, super excited on seeing that model. Really hyped to see more.

Far as AoS lore is right now there are 5 Chaos Gods

Khorne, Nurgle, Tzeentch, Slaanesh and the Great Horned Rat


Of them the first four are native to the Realm of Chaos, with their realms being full of demons who are all facets of the greater whole of the Patron god. Meanwhile when they interact with the Mortal Realms its mostly though Greater and Exalted Greater demons influencing the peoples. So the minor gods appear there, basically as lies from the Four core chaos gods.

The last group is not native to the Chaos Realm, but kind of bought his way in at the end of the Old World. The Great Horned Rat also differs in that his worshippers don't go to Chaos when they die; instead their souls go down to the Realm of the Dead and a regular normal (if skaven style) underlife/world. Not that this is one of the few that resists the invasions and attempts by Nagash, to take them over.
