Bah humbug. Between my vacation all August and business trip all Septemeber, looks like I won't be seeing any War Cry until September.

Worth noting that the event has been amended to “try” Warcry , so preorders 20th then. I have never known any GW event to allow early purchase of a GW non FW or BL product. Sometimes the demo areas for new product at WHW events are laughably small - new AoS was 2 4x4tables at that event.

Maybe Forge World and Black Library event presales work so well for them that they want to try that for the main games again? Certainly adds incentive to attend such an event.

Next warband: the Unmade, from Shyish. Wear their own faces for belt buckles.

Not a fan of these first real pass for me (which is good for saving money )

Plus the video which still says Summer 2019 pushed back perhaps?

Heh, I find the champ quite "meh", but like the grunts. Way behind snakes and crows on my to buy list, though.

PS: i spent wayyy to much time building a mancatcher for my witchhunters and thid guy casually rocks one. Sigh. At least mine has spring-loaded comet trails to catch with.

Interesting. Don't care for the one on stilts, but like the overall look.

Though I'm unclear how wearing your own face as a belt would help.


Also don't see these as slaanesh inspired at all. Just a general 'worshipping chaos makes you crazy'. Something something 'senseless downfall,' as the article puts it.

Nothing about their lore makes me think of Slaanesh.

Once upon a time, the Unmade were benevolent philosopher-kings renowned across the Realm of Death for their wisdom and nobility (If you’re a long-time Warhammer lore fan, your “senseless tragic downfall” alarm is probably going off right now.) Desperate to fight back the hordes of undead, the inhabitants of this land (a place known as Tzlid) were driven to worship the Chaos Gods – who promptly rewarded them by turning them into maniacal cultists obsessed with pain and mutilation. Seriously – they’re wearing their own faces as belts.

The visual style and themes fit with the fact that it's Shyish.

Bit meh to me. Stilt guy is in the same league as bird guy from the raven band. The rest aren't terrible, I guess, but hardly my first choice.

You don't compete in the Varanspire unless you have a wrestler belt with your team logo on it. These guys, I guess, try to compete on a budget.

Personally this is the first warband that I'm really interested in.

Models are awesome. But I have no idea of what the game is about still and if its centered solely on chaos, there is going to be a difficult time finding players.

GW points don't bring balance. They exist purely for structure. You can get more balance from no points than you do from GW points. You however can get no structure in your game without points.

There will be rules for 9 other non chaos warbands (see post #2) so whilst the boxed game is chaos focused it should have broader appeal.

Interesting lore, but the models look a bit uninspired. Nice helmets and weapons, but nothing really jumps out to make them look different.

The objective of the game is to win. The point of the game is to have fun. The two should never be confused.

Symbols for the non-Chaos warbands we'll see at launch...

For once, the logo on the belt actually makes sense and doesn't look too tacked on. I'm really groovin on almost all these warbands.

So, one warband left, with two possible realms to choose from.

Seeing as how to warbands have leaders on *stilts*, what are the chances that they're are jumping mechanics in the game? Jump over this terrain, or off this ledge, etc?

I'm hoping it is the Warbands from Underworld games. That way the models have a lot more use, and are already available.

Expecting a giant wolf to start eating the Sun any day now...

I guess that's my warband decided, then. And also some new death-cult assassins for my 40K Inquisition army. And some cultists for my Night Lords...

"The trouble with the Heresy as envisaged by GW is it just feels like 40K - it doesn't have the feel of a genuinely different society that ten thousand years separation would give you. Whenever I wrote anything that referenced back to those times I always wrote in a legendary, non-literal style. It's as if you were dealing with something like the Iliad rather than literal history - and there you're only talking three thousand years - ten thousand years - that takes us back to the end of the last ice-age... and I don't get any sense of understanding about 'deep time' when I look at anything GW have set in the 40K 'past'." - Rick Priestley

Like the music used in GW's Necromunda videos? It's this ikoliks piece. You're welcome.

'Modelling for Advantage' is not a real thing. When someone claims that your cool conversion is MFA, they're telling you they are the sort of whiny donkey-cave you probably don't want to play against under any circumstances.

It's Idoneth, Nighthaunt, Daughters of Khaine, Ironjawz, Gloomspite Gitz, Flesh Eater Courts, and Legion of Nagash--with the symbol in the top right corner being the only one that can't readily be placed.

Not hugely into the aesthetic (still diving helmet guys all the way!), but thematically these guys are insane. Wearing your face as a belt? That's nuts. I love it.

Being obsessed with paint and mutilation is a very Slaanesh thing.
Whilst most Chaos Worshippers do multilate bodies and such, this kind of mutilation is almost mindless and only in the direction of excess. Embracing the pure pain and heightened experience. That's totally what Slaanesh is about. Then you add to that the use of whips and chains, the fact that they've got a generally slender and lithe build - rather than the more chunky we might see from Khorne, the more withered from Tzeentch or the more "bloated pus oozing" we'd see from Nurgle and, to my eye, these are a very Slaanesh themed force.

You can see them going to war right alongside an Infernal Enrapturess.


Of course all the Warcry clans are technically universal, but I think this clan leans more toward Slaanesh than the other three gods.

All of the Underworlds warbands can be used in Age of Sigmar already.
