Nothing wrong with such a teaser. It's still just a pretty basic drawing. I don't think it'll take away from the eventual fully detailed, fully painted model reveal.

Maybe. But she said SHE was twisted into the form of her tormentor. Morathi was first describe as still flesh and blood but changed. And the two models rumor seems credible here now.

Funny thing is, last few WW/HH seminars had Warhammer Community photos before they even started. People even complained that you could view pictures of what is going to be presented as you stood in queue waiting for gates to open to actually get in. Pity LVO gets special treatment in that regard


Adepticon was the same. We had no idea what was gonna be shown off before the videos started. Deathguard was a shocker.

Someone already said - yes. Both Shornaal(snake) and Loesh(sea serpent) aspects of Slaanesh in the Norscan pantheon uses serpentine imagery, and Slaaneshi factions among the northern barbarians take names like Tribe of the Serpent. I can't speak to any of the nuFluff.

Normally Slaanesh is represented with snakes or cows. Khorne is wolfs and dogs, and Tzeentch is birds (Ravens) and fish.
Nurgle is represented with flies but I believe he had other animal attached to him, but I can't remember what was it.

I believe Nurgle was the Crow, Tzeentch was the Eagle, Khorne was the Hound and Slaanesh was the Serpent among the Norscan tribes as far as I can find.

Yeah, Nurgle had the crows and Tzeentch had ravens.

Indeed, Warhammer Online frequently referred to Tzeentch as 'the Raven God'.

A crow is a bird of the genus Corvus, or more broadly as a synonym for all of Corvus. The term "crow" is used as part of the common name of many species.

Corvus is a genus, not a species.
Think of it like this:
Family->Genus->Species
So, the Common Raven would be:
Corvus Corax of the Corvidae family.

Crow is kind of a catch-all for anything smaller than a raven.

Spoiler:

This guy had a crow.

There aren't many, but it was always kinda/sorta just that it got associated with Nurgle because of the fact that crows are associated with decaying corpses it seemed like.

So all Ravens are Crows but not all Crows are Ravens. Ok, thanks.

I think the Nurgle association with Crows is like Tzeentch with Fish and Slaanesh with Cows, more of a background thing. Their primary animals have always been Flies, Ravens/Birds and Snakes.
