Sylvaneth don't like Wanderers. They blame the Wanderers for the fall of the Realm of Life to Nurgle.


Do they? I did not know that, but I haven't kept up with the AoS story. That is an interesting bit of lore though.

The TLDR version is that when the Realmgates got 'cut off', some of the Wanderers were doing the whole (y'know) Wandering thing elsewhere. They couldn't get back to the Realm of Life to help fight Nurgle and those who were already there were basically wiped out by the various plagues and the like that Nurgle's incursion brought.

Alarielle thinks the Wanderers betrayed her and the Realm of Life because they died.

Ah, thanks for the quick excursion .

What is with the shadow-kin? Aren't they around somewhere? Could be them, although the horn looks to bright for them, I figure.

Shadowkin are really an unknown quantity. All we know is that they're Malerion's folk and that the Mistweaver Saih and Tenebrael Shard are both supposed to be examples of their race.

AOS Rulebook 2.0 in its timelines about events in Ghyran talk about several Wanderer clans in the Realm of Life see the war for the Realm as lost and so abandon the fight and flee to Azyr for safety.

There's a reason I said TLDR version and didn't just type out the whole passage.

I have always found the whole Sylvaneth/Wanderers feud to be a weak lore excuse to explain why Sylvaneth and Wanderers aren't in the same book. GW could just as easily say Nagash invaded and the Wanderers helped fend him off and they are now friend again.

As for the rumor image, it defiantly looks elfish, maybe those light elfs we keep hearing about.

The horn reminds me- that still unknown dragon head is similar to some of the banners and horns on old (1980s) elf models. Not an exact match, but a similar kind of style, as a sort of Germanic/Celtic knock off as often happens with fantasy elves.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

Truthfully, it's better if they aren't. Sylvaneth has become an actual, interesting faction in and of themselves and it gives room for(no pun intended!) a new faction to grow that is something notably different to Wanderers.

I'm with Kan on this one. I like the idea of the Sylvaneth being their own faction made up of fay folk/forest spirits. It leaves a lot more room for expansion beyond just what the old Wood Elves faction had.

So the horn might be from as-of-yet unrevealed Slaanesh mortals? (One can hope at least)

All of the other gods got mortal releases. I have a feeling this is just to show “we listened, they’re on their way” and the mortals will show up soon too. I doubt Slaanesh will ONLY have Hellstriders and a resin Lord of Slaanesh (foot and mounted).

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

guessing new fabius bile mini

though after reading clone lord and primogenitor (I recommend these two books, some of black libraries books) it seems wierd for fabius to be in an emperors children update/book in a way, the dude hates them and has to be blackmailed into working with them. Would be interesting if he had a more mixed faction, so he gets noise marines and basic chaos marines but gets locked out of whatever new units EC gets. Im still holding out for a fabius bile killteam with him, the world eaters apothocary, Igori + the gland hounds and maybe the "female space marine" who hangs out with him.

To be fair, the other "mortal" chaos champions don't get along great with their legion. Ahirman is the reason they're all dust and Magnus exiled him. Typhus caused the Death Guard to be Plague Marines, and he and Mort don't get along. Kharn is known for butchering his own people (which isn't a deal breaker) but he also caused the World Eaters to shatter as a legion. They could easily add a fluff blurb about him working with the Emperor's children again in order to secure more primaris to work on.

With the skin face rumor engine there are four possibilities

Fabius Bile
Heinrich Kemmler
Lucius
Urien Rakarth(I doubt we are getting another standard Haemie yet)

These 4 all have some flesh suit going on for them. I find Fabius and Heinrich the most likely considering that both have some obvious similarities.

Flesh Eater Courts are the most obvious. But most Death factions could probably do it. Ogres for Destruction are another. But it's most probably Fabulous Bill with the Chaos kick that's going on right now.

I will say the same thing as with the rag that turned out to be executioner, it's not Fabius. He is a surgeon, he won't produce anything that looks that garbage if his new model looks anywhere like the old one. If that's EC character, it's Lucius. He even has similar covering on his chest.

Fabius bile has an overcoat cobbled together with swatches of flesh. It ain't exactly a precision piece of tailoring by Valentino
