Interesting question. The amount of time we've been seeing vampire previews suggests before, which is odd. But between various delays and revised release schedules, I suspect there was a bigger planned gap between them.

At a guess, I suspect they were planned for late winter/early spring, then the broken realm books (with maybe some overlap), and then 3.0. As a result of everything, it all got squished, though its pretty clear the Broken Realms was a planned transition period, both release-wise and narratively.

Well, the developer interview told us they're going to be the biggest and best Age of Sigmar rules ever, and we're all going to love them. So there's that!

AKA typical GW speak


Yep. Too bad GW isn't like other companies, who tell their customers that the newest release is really pretty bland and boring, or outright sucks.

I’m really intrigued by them! And there would be something very cool about knightly Stormcast fight vampires and skellies and zombies.


Vampires are confirmed in may.

No date for kragnos and 3.0

When you go into a job interview, do you tell the interviewer that you're a huge piece of crap and that it'd be a terrible idea to hire you? Because if you don't you've got a stones, glass houses thing here.

Good to know Vamps are May. Wonder if they’ll go up this week, or AdMech.

AdMech now (as they should have gone up last month) and vampires after that.

You mean the "speculation" that people started making up, claiming that stuff like the ratlord, wolf lady, and radukar unleashed were expansions for the game repackaged and rebundled within an extremely short amount of time?

We know that there's some stuff planned as Soulblight releases that explicitly called out Ulfenkarn early on. We saw Lady Annika, the Thirsting Blade and Kritz the Rat Prince back in March, before Cursed City went on sale.

Surprising, i thought they would have gotten Admech out the way first. But going to be getting some of those bats, they're going to be pulling triple duty.

If the cost of Lumineth/Slaanesh have been any indication they'll be at least £37.50, if not £40.

I mean that I I find curious that none of the ulfenkarn miniatures come out this week. And it would be nice if they had been cursed city expansions. Nothing more.

I already knew the miniatures and the articles. Thanks for your great contribution.

It's a big release. There was no way they would drop the whole range at once, not when they can drag it out and screw AdMech over more.

I mean what do we know about that's missing right now?
Wight King on Nightmare Steed, the new Dire Wolves, the named characters I linked, Radukar the Beast, the First of the Vrykos, and I feel like I'm missing something else.

As it stands, this is coming as a huge surprise and is making me think the AdMech printed stuff was on that stupid boat.

I was hoping one of the skeletons would have the metal facemask like the one from cursed city had.

Also, we've got 5 zombies with tombs on their backs. Which isn't bad, since 15 don't have them, I guess?

Skeletons are just abysmal and uninteresting, couldn't imagine having to paint 20-40+ of those things.

Each to their own I guess. They look boss to me, and more heavily armoured to their original design, so will probably be slightly tough than zombies who will be super spammable.

The AdMech release is a codex and a single miniature. I could see them splitting up the Soulblight release and dropping the AdMech somewhere in the middle (they did that with Necrons IIRC).

Particularly if there’s boxed games stuff to release, a few could go at the same time.
Though I wouldn’t be surprised if Soulblight part two came the same week (next one?) as the Ad Mech book and model..

So the last army book released before the 3rd, maybe the book has some hints of whats to come rules wise.

20 a box yikes! Skellies look great but not so much for the zombies.

On the Skellies? Most important thing is that whilst they’ve presumably replaced the existing kit, they’ve not rendered existing Skellie units defunct.

Sure, these are more heavily armoured, but the weapon options and sizes look to remain the same.

Oh, and for sake of future reference? Whilst Sold Out, the existing Skellingtons are £20 for 10.

No conclusion to be come to at the moment of course, but figured it’d be useful!

Eh, compare to the old skellies it looks like i'd be way easier to make, and spot, body doubles which is a running theme nowadays.

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.
