Sorry, almost made it through that sentence without laughing.

It'd be an interesting thing for the Vault on Warhammer+ though.

It would never fly in the current GW era of no rules for models that don't exist.

The rules are just a mechanism to push model sales, so why would they put out content that won't create sales of current models and which, if anything, would just create demand for their third party competitors?

Instead we'll just get yet another primaris lieutenant.

If the rumored AoS compatible Chaos Dwarfs comes to fruition it could be a fun thing to add.

A serious expansion of the Vault would be great. I've been rereading the 5th/6th era books and it's been wonderfully nostalgic and given me motivation to start new forces.

Woa there, let's not get ahead of ourselves to suggesting GW would actually implement such an idea! Gaining a swathe of benefits for little to no cost isn't something GW is interested in unless said benefits can be represented by a number in the accounting.

My understanding is the 8th ed Cathay rules were put together specifically to support Total War Warhammer and not something they just had on the shelf. They aren't going to release it and it wasn't made for release, it was made because all the other factions in the Total War franchise were built using 8th edition army rules as reference to stat them out and assist the devs with figuring out how a unit was supposed to perform, etc. Statting them out using a different ruleset (a hypothetical newly designed Old World ruleset, for example) would be useless because you are no longer comparing apples to apples.

I would imagine the timeline, lore and everything else will form part of the armybook for the Old World - after all its a book no Warhammer fan has and many will want - I certainly do

Those Cathayan soldiers all look great. I’m excited to find out more about Cathay’s lore, especially if there are any tie in novels.

This trailer makes me super pumped for Wargames Atlantic’s upcoming Boxers and Warring States minis. Can’t wait to get converting.

I do not think we will see Cathay that soon after WHtoW get released, maybe after 4-5 Years.

They will stay on the classic WHFB Factions for the first Years.

I don't see why they'd go through all the effort of developing an entire new faction as one of the first few things done, to the point it gets shown off to us early on, and then decide to just not bother for half a decade.

I wonder if the End Times will be an expansion pack or the final plot of Total War 3. Seems to be the main reason you'd be secretive about the dates.
That would also make a lot of sense for the end of a trilogy, and the last Total Warhammer.


Time and time again they said End Times won't happen in TW.

Which just seems like cutting off your nose to spite your face.

There are tons of great units from around that time - Blight Knights, Storm Fiends, Morghasts, Maggoth mounts - and lots of characters that would be great, from the Gottkin to the introduction of Mortarchs.

Doesn't mean those units won't make it in. Some are specific to the End Times, but others were the usual filling of stuff that was backdated to having been around just not in army books. Blightkings, for example. We can even see in Khorne that Blood Warriors are in, and they were an AoS model release.

Close but arms are too armoured to be blood warriors. Unless you define blood warrior as any khorne worshipping model.

I'd rather CA did their own spin on Warhammer World than blindly follow GW's terrible take on it. So far, even though I don't enjoy the actual games that much, their characterization and plot is miles ahead of GW's usual level.
CA is doing Stan Lee's Warhammer while GW is/was Rob Liefeld.

No, that's still GW. Will King was like, the only one remotely worth reading in that pile (I should know, I had an embarrassing amount as a kid)

Point is, let CA do their own thing, so far it's more fun, inventive and coherent than anything GW produced for the setting.

I dunno man. Saying that everything GW has done with Warhammer is bad just sounds like you don't like Warhammer.

And CA isn't doing their "own thing". Like any licensed product, GW has to view everything they do.
