This reminded me that I need to paint my LRL and continue with the assembly on the fish elves. The expansion looks neat, although I hope they tone down on the new mechanics, I honestly don't have the time to keep up with it. The Grand Alliance cards are interesting, as we only had universal and faction specific. Fingers crossed for Skaven and CoS warbands.

I hope the music composer gets a good wage, I feel he really hits the spot with his work.

I like the idea of prebuilt decks. Let’s folk just get into the game, without worrying whether their first attempt at a deck is going to get their face smashed in.

Fed up of Scalpers? But still want your Exclusives? Why not join us?

Looks like everyone will want the starter for the new cards, so I'll be buying spare kruleboy gangs off people for conversion fodder

From Kruleboyz one I only like the grots.

I kind of like the kruel boyz a bit more than the actual release. I'm vibing on that hobgrot (didn't think we'd get one). I'm not a fan that some of the models have weapons sculpted to the bases, though. A grot and the birdcage orruk have nets and whips that are fused to the base, which is always a risk with models in underworld.

The stormcast are kind of eh. Not bad, but nothing special.

The new season being below a sea is a cool idea; I would have expected the deepkin to have been a larger focus in this setting.

Very nice sculpts across the board, lots of flavour but not completely OTT with detail.

What is going on with the Stormcast leader’s hood? Well, under it.

As H.B.M.C. said, the face paint job is pretty naff - but what’s that bit of armour curling round the right hand side of her face (our left)? Is it meant to be hair thats been painted incorrectly?

I like how the Hobgrot has an almost oldschool Chaos Dwarves Hobgoblin cap.

Somebody murdered the paintjob on the Stormcasts, but there's good models under there. But i do wish they'd actually used the artwork for the leader, looks a lot better.

Oh Ulgu it is then, there has to be shadow aelves in there somewhere and under water it seems? should make for an interesting scenery set. I wonder if they will revert to October release or keep to December like last year. Also that Kruleboy with Vulcha isn’t in this set wonder where he belongs then?

Only 308 cards in this seasons card pool. Only 52 universals seems low. Will GW finally be releasing warbands without universals? Seems so.

Perhaps 4 separate universal card pack releases, one for each Grand Alliance.

They might have finally got enough feedback that fans don't like "having" to buy every set to keep up with the universal cards. It's one thing to build a collection its another to be forced and, unlike pure card based systems, we are paying for models we still hvae to build and paint to use. Plus in the end a lot of people just want the models for the armies they already collect and one or two others not every force.

I didn't play much of season 3 for some reason, but I felt even in season 2 they made the default decks a lot better and not put cards clearly intended for warband A in warband B's box like what was rife in season 1.

Despite a bit of a rushed paint job, those are easily the best set of Stormcast they've done for Underworlds.
Kruelboyz are looking good too, although I hope there's a way to paint the boss dudes head before you put his cage on.
Great set all round.

Looking forward to what comes next.

Each season has gotten progressively better in the preconstructed, faction-specific deck that comes with each warband. Since Dreadfane (inc. Beastgrave and Direchasm), each faction came with the exact 32 cards needed for a complete deck. That was not the case in Shadespire or Nightvault.

There was some variance still in the quality of these decks in Beastgrave, but Direchasm is top-notch when it comes to relative balance amongst the 8 warbands of its season.

So looks lile they are fully moving to the new card style introduced in the Essential Card pack and two player starter based on that teaser video.

Definitely would have preferred their artwork for her model.

To be fair I expected multiple hobgrots and no regular grots if anything. But they are ok none the less..

I may well buy it.

I am excited for the new warbands, kind of sad I know my buddy is going to pick up the new Stormcast warband, but maybe I will as well since they are probably the best looking Stormcast warband to date.

Storm Of Celestus were fun to play, but a more mixed arms Stormcast warband with 4 models is really what I have been hounding for.

So... we gonna talk about what changing the card backs means? Everything prior to this point rotates out?

There's also a new, obnoxiously modernistic upgrade card layout.

Is this an actual second edition? Like X-wing second edition?

You'll probably just need to sleeve. Very few folk at tournament level don't already (though those with transparent backed sleeves will be rightly annoyed).

This is pure speculation, but with the supposed issues GW have had with getting cards printed (hence Cursed City etc.) they may have moved factories for the Underworlds cards production, in which case getting exactly matching colour backs would be extremely difficult anyway. Could make more sense to just have them look entirely different - forces sleeves at tournament level, rather than players playing unsleeved and trying to generate a competitive advantage by differentiating shades of blue/orange.

They've never had exactly matching colours. But an entirely new design goes beyond what we can reasonably pretend to ignore even on a kitchen table level. It's either a full rotation or an asinine way to force sleeves.

Yeah, my objective deck is sleeved in yellow sleeves but they're kinda see-through. You can't tell which cards are which with the current cards because the sleeves hide slight differences in color or wear, but the new ones will be pretty obvious.

I would not mind the new card backs and essentially second edition of the game as long as they release card packs updating older warbands with any errata, updated rules, or slight tweaks to those warbands which have been fairly bad (Blade Coven).

The new card design was first shown in the Essential Card Pack and Two Player Starter... so I am honestly okay with it, but either revamp all the old warbands, or lose a TON of players who are already starting to seem kind of burnt out.

Underworlds in the U.S. seems to be struggling hard versus overseas, and this really would be a prime opportunity to try and bring people back.

Can always just draw from the bottom of the deck.
