At their worst angles, the pics look like someone left and unfinished vargulf on a table and someone just came along and randomly glued a vampire torso on its shoulders. It doesn't look like a single model to me.


Especially since the belt / loincloth at a glance looks like it could be a head for the lower half.

But yeah, not a fan.

The Dire Wolves look okay, I was about to buy a bunch of Fenrisian Wolves to use as dire wolves since I don't like the old ones, but maybe I'll hold off.

I like the concept of Lauka, but I'm biased.

I do think she would work better with a less defined mid section. Perhaps more armour down the Varghulf part would help with that.

I just can't get over how dumb of a model the vampire centaur is.

How does it walk or even fly? Does the body flop itself forward on the ground with its wing legs? It would be so awkward and ungainly, especially given how front heavy it is with the huge humanoid torso on it.


Um, it's pretty clear it simply leaps from gothic ruin to gothic ruin, all across the 8 realms.

Stick them on a horse they'd look good. I wonder how big they are, could be a pretty cool set if they included some legs so you could build one of them on foot.

There are no horses big enough to serve as a mount for Lauka.

She could maybe ride Kragnos.

How big is she? I couldn't tell from the video. She looks a bit bigger than the infantry models behind her in the video, but she also is closer to the camera so maybe not that much bigger?

So I wonder, does this mean that FEC are going to be rolled into Soulblight, or are they shown because the two factions will be able to ally with each other?

There are no FEC exclusive units in that picture. The Zombie Dragon has always been dual faction and the big ghoul things are a triple kit that builds two FEC units and 1 Soulblight unit

You mean the Terrorgheist? Probably just a cross-Faction model now like the Zombie Dragon.

Well I don't believe that FeC is going anywhere but it is a good question how these interact with each other some of these new stuff do have some ghoulish elements.

On the one hand I don't think GW will get rid of the FEC, on the other the only model they've got is the getting started set, one plastic leader and one finecast varghast and some Endless Spells.

They have perhaps the smallest range of models in terms of what's on sale.

That said GW has broken them off into their own army and with their own Battletome and they are often markedly distinct from the other vampire forces. I think in the end they will share some units, but won't be rolled into Soulblight. Especially since if GW get to releasing more FEC units they should be distinct from the other soulblights (though those wolf-footed ones would fit well in my view)

The Vampire centaurs look pretty cool, but really suffer from the lack of sensibility.
The thing is, the design and pose is more balanced and estethicaly pleasing than many other AoS "centerpieces". Also, no swirly magic-soul-aetheric mist flying around, and that is always great news!

The title of Lauka Vai save it -"mother of nightmares". Nightmares dont need to make sense, and there you have it -weird and frightening fiends from the castle of horror and madness. Sounds right to me.

The first time I saw her, I thought "oh she's riding a winged nightmare like in the old WHFB vampire count army book, that's why she has that title" and then I saw she was not riding anything.

Still, the fact it's a bit similar to old winged nightmares mounts makes me wonder if her title is an actual wink to that.

Was really looking forward to this release, but i've found it to be largely disappointing.

-Skeletons are a touch too armoured and a bit too generic for my liking . They've lost their VC "flavour".
-Wolves, while nice, just appear to be carbon copies of the Fenrisian wolves. Also look really out of place against the current dire wolves.
-Something about the blood knights is off too, although I can't quite place my finger on it. And again, enough has changed from the current knights that they'll look out of place along side them.
-Not at all impressed by Volga (What's with her feet?), Radukar (Just doesn't scream Vampire too me) or the Vamptaurs (Bizarre concept and horrible pose).

-Zombies and Fell Bats look interesting though, Would like to see more pics of them.

You mean naked skeletons with one or two skullcap helmets thrown into the bunch? Like, of all the skeleton plastic kits on the market, they're the least generic right now, compared to older VC kits that were...just skeletons. Though I guess the fact that you could glue different embossings on the shields was neat, wish they brought that back from the VC skellies.

I think I figured out what was bugging me about Lauka. Her frame is not compact enough, while her pose is too compact, likely because she needs to fit in the base area as much as possible.

Think I'll make her my next project.

How about cutting the beast at the waist and put the wings on her back? I think the two vertically aligned pairs of arms/wings do contribute significantly to the model looking weird.

I really like that her proportions are weird. I mean if the anatomy made sense it wouldn't be unnatural and horrifying. Which is what I imagine they were going for with it.

If anything of all the models shown it's the one I like the most.

The armor, I get it. But saying they're a bit too generic ? When the previous kit was litteraly an undead skeleton showing their bones in the open ? That last one was the most generic of both kits, in comparison.

The style of armor of these new skeletons isn't that common on the market of undead skeletons as well.



-Wolves, while nice, just appear to be carbon copies of the Fenrisian wolves. Also look really out of place against the current dire wolves.


Fenrissian wolves are actually different :



See the head and shape of ears, it's not the same. They also don't have fur showing as much on the rest of their body.

They're different from previous dire wolves, indeed. And thank Sigmar they are. I won't regret these ugly abominations a single second :



Even their bones showing through their flesh made no sense, like they were glued on the body afterwards.

No wonder so many people used goblin wolf mounts instead at that time...



-Not at all impressed by Volga (What's with her feet?)


Vyrkos are bestial vampires and linked to wolves. Newborn vampires from Cursed City also have the same animal legs.

Morathi is quite a bit bigger than these models, unless you've just used the wings for illustrative purposes. There are skulls on the base that suggest it's a 60mm circle.

I'd put money on the humanoid sections being the same size/scale as Sigvald, which might just mean his legs would be a reasonable if not expensive option for slapping one of their upper bodies on

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

I'm actually okay with the monster vampires after looking at them a while. Not my favorite sculpts, but I am okay.

I think the main th ing I am disappointed in is there are really no vampire Infantry units. We got bloodknights, and a whole bunch of special characters/characters. I was really hoping for a few elite infantry options.

This is Vampire Counts- AOS version for sure, which is cool for some, but I was really hoping for something a bit different.

Must have missed that image, was looking at the one in the video.

She's big, but not gigantic. If you could get a slightly bigger than normal horse she'd look beefy but not monstrous.

There's an image of Lauka next to human sized models posted on this page.

She's not Sigvald sized and that's not a 60mm base. I only hope it's an 80mm one, or Mortahi's wings might turn out to be too small for what I want to do.

I think she’s closer to the Skeletons in that image than the zombies, for what it’s worth, and her base is higher than the zombies are. I don’t think she’s as big as you’re picturing. It’s hard to tell from photos like that.

I will say the old dire wolves made great Chaos Hounds for my Nurgle Warriors Of Chaos army back in Fantasy days.
