It might just be the Battletome wasn't done, but GW wanted a "complete box" experience so put some cards in anyway. Don't forget a portion of their customers just want to open the box and play. same as why most duel army boxed sets also have a mini-campaign mission in them.

I'm really hoping the new scuttleboss isn't a grot with multiple arms, legs, or eyes. Or if it does have multiple eyes, at least have a mask or something.

Grot scuttlings never took off (except for the "recent" gobbapalooza one) but I like my spider goblins as just grots with a spider fetish, not actually spider-grots

Right behind you.

We can't actually say whether or not they took off because they never got released outside of Silver Tower. They were on one of the shared "enemies" sprues.

It would be an ace way to add some new units to the Gloomspite Gitz though. "Spider-Blessed".

I ws going to tell you you're being silly as the Scuttleboss is just the name of a loonboss on spider and he's already in the battletome... but then I looked and his fluff blurb actually talks about him being part spider.

To be fair, the old forest goblins always did have spider-y tendencies. Like the shaman on arachnarok has four eyes, the leaders have weird multieyed spider masks, etc. But AOS has been cranking up the weirdness when it comes to Gloomspite goblins, both in lore and models. The grots in the latest Gotrek story are crazy; one has one eye (like he's an actual cyclops, not that he lost an eye), one is described as being like a crab (I assume its the scuttling looking dude from the gobapalooza), and so on.

And even if the current model isn't too outlandish, I could see them redesigning the new model to be far more unique, with extra limbs or something even more extreme. It's not guaranteed, though. The new warboss on giant squig could easily fit into the old world (ignoring all the sentient alien fungi on his base). Theres also a small, small chance they make him look more like a night goblin. Spiders have been mixed with classic night goblins a lot lately (grot scuttlings the aforementioned shaman, the goblins with sniffing squigs). It could be that the native American vibe the old models have is too offensive, or if they just want to have a more unified goblin force moving forward. I hope they keep up the arachnarok aesthetic though

1) usually an angry hamster is enough to threaten support characters. Or just drop-podding something better than the vanguard hunters. They're the glaivewraith stalkers of SCE.
2) kids without battletome won't be getitng their special rules thanks to this useless version of the statline, so they can't really play anyway.

I didn't like the Silver Tower models on account of the cloaks. Seemed like the designers wanted something different but couldn't be bothered to figure out the anatomy. So I agree, some well done goblin spider hybrids could be cool to have if they don't go out of their way to hide half of the model.

With the caveat that the hybrid model vampires got has really bad composition and it's a recent reminder that GW may not get the "well done" part right. They're capable of making amazing models, but just as capable of making amazing duds.

Indeed. I could live with just a box of 10 normal savage goblins on foot too. That would be such a nice sandbox for conversions.
Silver tower Designers also had the challenge of multi limbs miniature set as a snap fit kit. They probably needed to simplify and covered the bodies with clothes because failing that you would need multipart extra legs or arms on the sprue.

When the 3.0 box was being teased and for a moment the "silent people' was mentioned... I secretly wished for spider/ insect goblins. Now that would be box of dreams or nightmares( for the wallet).

Bit underwhelming. GW aren't exactly known for great dragons sculpts, I suppose. First impression is that it'll make great conversion fodder for the existing dragon profiles.

They're both pretty decent, and I like that the pose is something a bit different.

Unfortunately I still don't have Kroak, for my Seraphon, and that's going to be a higher priority (and frankly a far more interesting model, not that these are bad).

Maybe I'm not seeing it -- is there anything indicating the base size or relative size of the model? Something to check scale against? The little bits of ruin on the right are from the ruins set, but they look like they might be a bit in the foreground compared to the dragons.

They remember me Spyro the Dragon's dragons specially the blue one.

They are the best dragons GW has ever done. Thats not a very high bar but they are pretty cool specially the scarred one.

I think they are quite nice but unnecessary. Updating large part of Stormcast range already feels like a waste of resources. At least the Dragon can be built without armour this time although the sculpted twin tailed comet at its chest needs to be sculpted over if one wishes to use the Dragon for other purposes.

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