Those are all kits that consumers are complaining about because they are old and decrepit. Because when you aim for multiple poses you will have to do things very basic and action-man-y like the current Ork kit or the standard old Space marine kits with the hover hands and so on. Even then you had static leg poses and the torso got to be super spinny and weird sometimes.I mean, it was spinning torso, weird ass shoulder joints, and head. That was about it for posability and maybe some spinning wrist action.
Yeah. The 'multi-pose' generally boiled down to 2-3 poses that actually looked decent, and were worse looking than they could have been because they needed to accommodate the two dozen other pose options that looked awful.

Interested to see how the lore has been adjusted - looks like some vampire bloodlines are now direct from nagash rather than via Neferata.

I can sort of see the idea of Beastial vampires being affected by Ghur.

No way the countdown is for pre-ordering the new edition.

Kragnos, remember?

I just remembered that Neferata and Manny existed: SC! Skellies is gone now. I wonder if they will re-launch it a Soulblight, replacing the Black for Blood Knights.

I didn't had the chance to buy neither the Battleforce nor the mentioned SC! back then...

I get the feeling AoS 3.0 is closer than many think. My FLGS just got asked to start hyping 3.0 so I get the feeling we might see a release in late June or first weekend of July.

So the countdown is probably for the full box reveal and then a month of hype and it comes out.

-Primary Armies -
Craftworlds | Dark Angels | Death Guard | Sisters of Battle | Chaos Knights | Flesh-Eater Courts | Idoneth Deepkin

- Secondary Armies -
Drukhari | Necrons || Tyranids | Daughters of Khaine | Blades of Khorne | Stormcast Eternals

That's my thoughts too. A full boxset reveal would be cool. Hopefully they'll sprinkle in some model reviews/teasers in the days leading up to it. Though that usually just gets people mad when they reveal something we've already seen

I too think the counter is about the reveal of this new box.

To kick off our introduction to the new edition of Warhammer Age of Sigmar, a box packed with brand new miniatures and a special edition of the rule book will be coming. Suffice to say the stunning new Stormcast Eternals we saw on Saturday are making an appearance, but who will they be fighting against?


I winced at these words. It sounds like "as long as stock is available, then forever gone", Indomitus style.

But well...wait and see.

The only thing you'd miss out on is the cover for the rule book and whatever discount it offers
Otherwise everything else in the set will be coming out on individual sale, even if a few weeks/months later for some things.

New Zombies can be built in (at least) 20 configurations straight from the box. If this is not enough, what is?

20 unique models is certainly better than old kit where every fifth model had the same pair of legs or torso. It looks like most models are 2-3 pieces each so they should be quite fast to build too.

The prices are surprisingly reasonable. These are definitely joining my grey legions.


They look like 10 bodies with 2 configurations to me. If you buy more than one box they will all be clones. If that counts as unique then the old ones number in the thousands, because any part can be attached to any other, and you can angle them however you want to further break up the silhouette.

There's got to be a happy medium between Poxwalkers and Empire Militia (like ghouls), but personally I would take the Empire Militia every time over Poxwalkers.

Nighthaunt players are still waiting for a Guardian of Souls and a mounted Knight of Shrouds outside of the Soul Wars box. At this point, I'm afraid we'll see the Guardian of Souls/Lord Executioner/Knight of Shrouds sprue on sale for $90 US in the near future...

Yeah, but... that hasn't exactly gone well for the Indomitus models, has it? If you want the stuff that didn't make it into the starter boxes, you're paying through the nose. To the tune of something like $500 total for a $199 box (including rulebook, which you don't get). And that's if you're doing the sane thing and buying the starter boxes rather than buying a single unit box that are ~half the cost of the elite starter for 1 out of the 4 units that are in it and none of the characters.

Pretty sure the content of the box "Indomitus Style" won't be just about the book with a special cover. It will also have more miniatures than the "real" starter boxes coming out later, certainly for a better "bundle price". And maybe a few exclusive miniatures too.

Reveal first, then a longer period of pre-order - but it will be sold out in mere minutes the day it will actually launch, obviously.

Why? When GW themselves have done better for the last 20 years? See Ghouls.

Those Fireforge ones look pretty cool though.

But if GWs direction is "cheap" monopose, there are many competitors at a fraction of the cost. Might as well go Mantic at this point.

Here is my own unit made from the Fireforge zombie soldier kit and Fireforge undead peasant kit (two sprues of 6 different bodies with different arms / heads)



There is indeed a limit to the variation. And it was 12 different bodies in the end.

Still coming good as a horde, IMHO.

What? GW's old zombies (and modern mutant orcs, sorry, 'ghouls') are just sad little attempts at models.

Nefferata has always been from Nagash by proxy. She wouldn't have become a vampire if she didn't bastardize his elixir of life aka liche potion.

Yes but the Soul Wars set is still on sale and I would expect once it goes off sale either another starter set setup or a new set will come out with those models inside it.
And yep its a pain GW does put exclusive things into getting started sets, but they are still on the market in some form.

Yes. In the same form as the Necron Royal Court and the Space Marines Honoured of the Chapter which are simply single sprues taken from the Indomitus box and retail for £68/$110 US and £89/$140 US respectively.

No need to wait and see.
Their article says the new edition has a Launch Box.
That’s exactly how Indomitus was marketed we just didn’t know exactly what that meant as much at the time.

That... isn't the same at all. A christmas bundle box is always existing kits that you can currently buy. They don't vanish and pieces get put up for sale months later at a single sprue for... $140, nearly _three quarters_ of the price of the entire box.

Whatever bizarre equivalence you're trying to draw, that's just flatly incorrect.

To note: the current AoS starter kits are still available.

I am aware that this might as well mean nothing at all: I remember that, when the Chaos Warriors (Slaves to Darkness, aka StD) Battleforce was on the international store, it stood there the entire year until the next wave of Battleforces arrived, and then they just deleted it from the catalogue.

While I do see AoS 3.0 coming soon, therefore not having GHB this year, I wonder how much will they left BR: Kragnos in shelves.

I also wonder if they will make a version with scenery, like in 40K.

My final question would be if they will take their time in releasing the new SC! for Sacrosanct SCE and Nighthaunt. I'd really like they release them with their full contents, but

Are the sprues from Soul Wars easily divided by faction? Because if they are, the chances of them becoming new Start Collecting boxes eventually is high.

Literally they are divided by faction. You can look at them here, and I am quite sure that all the modern Starter Kits from the last decade have been like that.

FLGS doesn't know more than you or me. They learn of new preorders when you and I do. Sunday previews.

Full box preview+june hyping is actually what's to be expected. Less hyping than that(say 29.5 is the preorder date) would be the surprise. Especially as there's supposedly 2 more previews this month and doesn't look this week there's any.

Of course discount can be quite hefty. you pay 85e for skorpek lord, canoptek stalker, cryptek and 2 buddies. Indominatus with that and lot more was like 160e? So over half the price for tiny part of the box

So you are certainly encouraged to buy if you even THINK you might have one of the 2 armies in future...

Options at least. I have 170 or so and I suspect there's not single duplicate. Except maybe by accident.

Then take ogor gluttons. If it was designed now you would get 6 with only options being weapon combo. So 2 box and you would have all options. I have 24 of them and not even CLOSE to having duplicate models. And that's bad box in itself yet is better than current ones.

Stone trolls? I have 12. All unique. Now it would be 3 models and that's it. 12 I would have 4 times same 3 models.

All of those with zero cutting or sculpting ability needed. Having to be sculptor to modify looks is big step backwards.
