I'm hoping it is the Warbands from Underworld games. That way the models have a lot more use, and are already available.

It's Idoneth, Nighthaunt, Daughters of Khaine, Ironjawz, Gloomspite Gitz, Flesh Eater Courts, and Legion of Nagash--with the symbol in the top right corner being the only one that can't readily be placed.


I'm not really happy with the idea of non-chaos being included. Thought the whole point of the game was chaos warbands battling for the favour of the gods, sort of thing.

It'd be the same as having squads of space marines or tau or something cropping up in Necromunda.


Same.

To be honest I think they just reacted to public bitching. Initial reveal was for the Chaos Warbands only, then people whined that their AoS faction wasn’t a thing in what they perceive to be AoS Kill Team then all of a sudden we get a revised announcement pic with other AoS faction symbols tacked on.

I like the idea of using all the other other non-Chaos warbands to represent small skirmishes across all the realms, rather than just Chaos vs. Chaos in the Allpoints. Its a fun way of portraying fights against Chaos forces that don't involve Bloodbound Bloodthirsty Blood-ites everywhere, all the time, with the occasional Ghyran Plague-horde.

If anything, it shows even better all the flavors and forms Chaos has taken depending on which Realm it took hold.

Right behind you.

The "initial reveal"(February) was just about the Allpoints and Varanspire as parts of the setting.

When they revealed the Iron Golems at Adepticon, they had the image with the non-Chaos warbands.

So maybe "they reacted", or more likely it was the plan all along.

I'm still wondering if the emphasis on chaos warbands for warcry, and on chaos guard for BSF are setting up for a big Chaos mortals release for both systems later this year/early next

There was an initial “warband faction icons” image that just had the Chaos ones. It was later replaced with a nearly identical image containing AoS faction symbols added.

Tough choice for me between them and the Corvus Cabal. Although my main opponent has just massively enthused about the Unmade so that may be my decision made for me...

If memory serves, GW said from the outset rules for existing armies would be included as an extra on release?

So able to be used in the game, if not necessarily part of the setting.

And we still don't know how much customization will be available, and if the game will be mainly campaign based.
It's still possible that the new kits will have many options, with corresponding rules, whereas the standard AoS units will only come with very limited options, which would make them extremely boring in a campaign system.

The models' poses make me think that at best we'll have something similar to the Necromunda's kits: lots of options in general, but not every body can use every weapon.

So what you're saying is you're glad you didn't already choose them or else your choice would have been... Unmade!

I'd say the heads are separate, at least in part. The cloth and chain strips hanging from them don't connect to the torso. There's no way you can cast that in plastic as a single piece.

My thoughts exactly! The only warband where I wouldn't scrape those team belt buckles of in an instant.

Might see myself making these into a Chaos warband for Mordheim. Certainly fit the aesthetics.

The image you're referring to showed up a few weeks after the initial announcement, but GW started talking about non-Chaos rules just a couple days after the first announcement. It's pretty clear to me that the plan was always to have rules for non-Chaos warbands.

And questions like that impact my enjoyment of "the rule of cool" alas..

I thought about those too, but I figured that since Chaos as a whole very much follows "might makes right" they probably have slaves to do those things for therm.

There's a sliding scale that has realism on one end and Blanche on the other. It's kind of pointless to appreciate the latter end for anything but style. You'll just go mad.

Have you seen the number of spikes on those figures? Scratching themselves is the one thing they can easily do - in many different ways. Very carefully though, one imagines... or maybe that's how they end up requiring increasingly many replacement limbs.

Did you guy miss the part about pain and mutilation? I'm sure they scratch each other one way or another, several time.

I would be more excited if they finally reveal something about, you know, the actual rules of the damn game.

Otherwise, new miniatures are always fine. Better if we know when we can really get them in our hands.

Rules are always the least interesting part for me. After all, if I don't like them there's plenty of alternatives. These minis, however, and the background to them, are pretty unique.

Rules are of interest to me as well - If it's just roll to hit, roll to wound etc, I will pass.

I'm hopefull that there is more to it however...

So they'll reveal the band as part of a "preorder next week" thingy or what? Great, now I'll wonder all day what theme it'll be and from what realm.
