AdMech did. The point in any regards is that they did not say they would not revisit those kinds of things--just that they would not be tournament legal.

Better not to expect more than the sc that was previewed. Codexes don't always bring lots of models. Most are 1 or none.


Apart from the fact, historically; that is completely untrue...

8th was an exception, of get every codex out the door. Rush, rush! Traditional codex releases are big "event" type affairs with new models galore. AoS still does it this way, 40k did it that way prior to 8th. Nothing says that won't change as much of the groundwork is done.


Well, "traditionally", there was also only 2, maybe 3 Codexes a year. Which is probably still roughly the No. of Codexes they release with a big splash of new kits.

But that's not gonna work for a 2-Codexes-a-month-get-everyone-up-to-speed-release-schedule. As hinted at with the new characters video, there'll probably be a slew of Codexes (Death Guard, Dark Eldar, Orks, AdMech, Sisters specifically) that will likely get a book and something like a Combat Patrol box with a single new mini, etc. to move things along.

I'd guess a Broken Realms release, being to Hedonites what Engine War was for the Mechanicus.

I disagree. Eldar got those 3 new models at the end of 7th and some kind of weird webway gate. That’s more than enough updates to last the next 20 years. Elsewhere, there are poor Space Marine players, rocking back and forth, irritable, shaking and with the sweats because they haven’t had a new release in weeks. Thank god GW thought to give them some new rules in White Dwarf before releasing all those new speeders and tank variants or they have never survived. Poor bastards.

DE getting a new codex will be interesting. I think the lack of new *stuff* will be sad, as it essentially leaves you playing the same army for about 10ish years now, but oh well.

Would echo the Day 1 DLC thoughts on Warzone Charadon. PA books to fix/expand factions outside the codex cycle felt like a money grab, but at least served a purpose.

Saying "you can buy this new book for the faction, but btw you also need this other book if you want X stratagems, Y relic, Z warlord traits etc" feels... incredibly egregious.

All those Marines need to be in a singular codex. Y'all wanted extra rules, and you got your wish.


No, Slayer, what BA/DA/DW/SW players would probably have preferred is what they've had for (in three cases at least) a good 20+ years now, aside from a minor diversion in early 3rd - their own full Codex, not a supplement to the general SM book.

A couple extra units never warranted a whole new codex. In your logic we needed separate codices for Kabals, Wych Cults, and Covens.

In reality we know it doesn't need to happen but y'all wished for bloat. You got your wish and I laugh about it to be honest.

It's not just that, its also that Stormcast grew REALLY fast and AoS also has a lot of factions that are perhaps a quarter the size of a typical GW army. With so many armies fragmented GW couldn't have kept up with a storm of stormcast models. Not only would the community have turned on them; but also they'd have simply run out of slots to fit things in. One thing 40K does well at present compared to AoS is that 40K has more unit niches. It's got flying units, super heavies, anti tank; infantry; ranged; close combat; etc... They have a lot of specialist slots. AoS has very few in comparison and a good few of armies don't even have a full roster (eg a lot of armies are missing any form of artillery/war engine units).

So with limited niches you can't add too many before you're falling over yourself; and you can't just add more niches when so many armies don't even support what you've currently got. Just look when GW added aircraft to the game as fixed flying units; every army got new models over time to work within that new area of battle - both air units and anti-air units.



That said I also think GW shifted away from an idea they were clearly playing with of having lots of Stormcast Chapters just like marines. I think someone realised that Marines worked almost by accident and GW ran with it; but its not something they could force on the community to pick up on. So they dropped it and instead we've a wealth of other factions and, I'd say, an honestly more diverse game.

SIGVLAD EXPERIENCE REQUIEM

Seriously, I just can not wait for the Throgg memes.

Also, expect proxies of him with Golden Saints from Saint Seiya.

The Twinsouls are a big hit and miss for me. Some faces look terribad for a Slaanesh army; that one with the tongue out looks like a Nurgling.

The other variant is more appealing. They look like Chaos Stormcasts. Fantasy Slaaneshi Marines=?

The other surprise for me was the House Van Saar. They look just straight out of Infinity. I love them.

Chaos Warband: Khagra is cute as Chaosrealm. I love the kind of women who can kick my ass.

Her sister is ugly. 0/10 wouldn't date.

Dark Eldar and Dark Angels for February, IIRC. Wonder what their Combat Patrols (ComPats)? will look like.

I mean, I just think it’s a pause in Stormcast, there’ll still be loads more, they just have a lot of others that are to come out.
There are still several chambers to open or whatever aren’t there?

Please, yes. I know some people will not like this opinion, but the original warrior chamber stuff, especially liberators and judicators need a desperate resculpt. They are horribly bland and undetailed and it'd be a perfect chance to incorporate more of the lady stormcast they've shown in art.

And for the love of god, give them *good* warscrolls this time, 70% of SCE scrolls is just trash.

At the end of the Sigvald video, where it says "Bring beauty to the realms", the font for beauty reminds me of the font used for Beauty and the Beast. It makes me wonder, with the possible slaangors in the background, if there'll be another later on about bringing beasts.

Yeah, Stormcast just are not as prevalent as SM are, so we don't get near as many releases, which is a good thing. I believe there is still the Ruination Chamber and the Logistics chamber left?

Ah, so I am not the only nutcase that though about that!


But as for Slaangors, I except them being much buffer then compared to regular gors or tzaangors. And maybe some other things.

There is still a pretty good chance we will. The article said this was just a peek, and we saw what looks to be Slaangors, a Huge chariot or something and caster in the background. I wouldn't be suprised if there is a light infantry ala the warband style available too.

I’m wondering if we’re actually seeing a Slaaneshi Minotaur? Just looks bigger than I’d expect a Beastman to be?

One reason i have started to warmup to aos is because unlike40k one faction doesn't have oppressively one sided releases. So happy stormcast releases are on reasonable level
