Still pointing towards a character-based board game. We're at what, 7 minis from 7 different factions now?

Don't forget that we just saw the Khainite Shadowstalkers revealed for WarCry. They were said to be the first of what is to come for WarCry.

This seems to match the punch dagger of dubious practicality we saw a few weeks back?

If it’s not the same model, it’s the same faction I reckon.

Pretty sure that’s a blood drop on the bracer. But it’s certainly a winged blood drop on the sword. Vampire.

The 'wings' aren't. It's part of the sword's blade.

Yeah, but that would mean Hedonites of Slaanesh would need a whole new book if we go by the reaction people had to my suggestion of waiting for rules on Seraphon.

The best bet, currently, is to look at these as something for WarCry. We've seen an Ossiarch Bonereaper, a Seraphon, the Khainite Shadowstalkers, a Flesh-Eater Courts(or Vampire) piece, a Nurgling piece, and at least a few that look like they are Order related.

It seems like there's a plan in place to add some fresh stuff in the form of 'supplemental warbands'.

The sword reminds me ALOT of Sigvalds sword, so I'll guess Slaaneshi mortals. I also want those almost as much as i want new and improved Seraphon saurus warriors, and Order humans (that aren't 16th century Germans)

I don't know what it could be, but that looks like a cool sword.
I want to say its a rapier, but the blade is too wide.
Are there even rapiers in the games? I'm talking 40k, AoS and WHFB. I don't think I've seen any, probably because the blade would be too thin to manufacture.

It’s the shoulder armour that’s got me stumped.

Doesn’t seem ornate enough for Vampire or Pointy Ear?

Idk, the blade does seem sort of vampire style, with the elaborate basket-style hilt and the little wings coming off the sword.
The arm doesn't look right though. Maybe its a new sea-elf model?
Or maybe its vampire coast, I don't know.

Blood gem on the bracelet and on the sword blade, so I'm thinking vampires (they did get a tease in that warcom newspaper article). Newer incarnation of models seem to be a good indicator of the direction they're going with. The most recent vampire was the one on zombie dragon, and his shoulder pads are pretty plain. The sword he wields is completely different in design, though, and doesn't match any current vampire model.

This release schedule begs to differ:
There was 3 years between them and their second iterations.

Admittedly, there was stuff from General's Handbook for those three that effectively remade them to the same extent as a whole new battletome. That might be what you are thinking of?

Alongside sigvald, I think the blade reminds me a bit of the splintered fang warband for warcry, and I think chaos mortals going forward (for the next few years at least) will have certain design elements in common with them.

To be clear, the little 'wings' from the blade remind me a bit of the spikes on the splintered fang blades.

Damn good catch, but it's worth mentioning that they're meant to be representative of mortals (in general) from the various Realms.
Spoiler:


The Elf here is rocking exactly what you're talking about--and the sword looks like a rapier to boot!

There's also this punch dagger:
Spoiler:

The rest tend to be serpentine blades.

It'd be cool if the warcry bands got specific hero options, sort of like Necromunda. But none of the Splintered Fangs have gems that match those on the model. I'd imagine we'd see their fang marks on the armor, or at least a more obvious snake icon. I think a few other chaos models have similar winged blades (although the SF have the closest looking one.)

It's worth noting that a majority of vampires with swords have those kind of hand guards (I don't know the proper term. Rapier like handles?)

I think you're missing what the context was:
So far the only thing we have seen with that specific setup has been a Ghyranite warband. Splintered Fangs hail from Ghyran(the Realm of Life) and their equipment seemingly reflects that.

It's not unlike the Corvus Cabal, who are scavengers dwelling in Ulgu(Realm of Shadow) wearing pieces of armor that we now know come from the Khainite Shadowstalkers:
Spoiler:


These groups all have something, per what the range designers said, that denotes where they are from.

We don’t know they’re from the Khainite Shadowstalkers. We know that the armor style is worn by two Warbands from Ulgu now. That’s it.

Right behind you.

We know that the Cabal are scavengers. We also know that only the 'top 3' models(Spirestalkers and Shadow Piercer) have those specific pieces--and that those are the ones who get first picks from spoils in the lore. We have seen nothing else with those particular stylings as of yet. Not from art nor models.

Sometimes 1+1=2, not 11.

Looks more like a knucklebow than a full basket hilt to me- I really like that style of hilt. It was very prevalent in the 16th century. Basket hilts appear later, and are much larger, almost entirely encompassing the hand.

Oh is that what that style is called?
I knew it didn't look quite like a basket-hilt, but I wasn't sure what the proper term for it was.
