I think a new AoS dungeon crawl could very well be the case with this variety of miniatures.

It could also be a mix of new Warcry warbands and Underworlds warbands from next season (I almost guarantee that Bonereaper weapon will belong to the an Ossiarch Underworlds warbands - I imagine they will probably be in the next season starter).

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.

I actually don't know what the style is called, but the actual bit of a hand guard that curves over the knuckles to the hilt is called a knuckle bow, and can be found in many different styles of hand guards from the end of the medieval period to when swords died out in the early 20th century as practical weapons. It is more of a name for a component than a style, like saying hilt, or blade, or quillon.

The basket hilt is really an evolution of the knucklebow into a much wider guard, but knuckle bows never went away because they are simple, light, easy to produce, and don't obstruct the hand too much when drawing or wielding the sword. There are even a small number of two-handed swords from the 16th century with knucklebows, but they are rare (mostly of the "Swiss saber" type).

Stone the crows! That looks like 'Hooters' the party owl and he's getting ready for a wing party. Check out the intent in his eyes!

I do kind of like him though

Kurnothi I'm hoping? Either a Warcry Warband or hinting at a large release. Or maybe a space owl and its for Exodites..

Its probably for a Mentor Legion Primaris Lieutenant though..

I assume its for some manner of elf release, but I'd be thrilled if it was actually something more sinister, like a flock of war owls dismembering a corpse.

But given the way its painted, its a light and fluffy background detail on some elf kit.

All the different stuff we are seeing recently (hinting towards Ghouls, possibly a Vampire, Sylvaneth, the Chaos Staff, etc), really makes me feel we are either going to get a bunch of new Warcry warbands in the next year (awesome) or a new Warhammer Quest game (also awesome). Really looking forward to seeing how these rumors play out.

I'd lean more towards WarCry given that we saw the previewed Khainite Shadowstalkers.

Something makes me think it's for Lumineth Lords, but its probably sylvanneth. Every owl so far (dryads and treelord) has been for them, this one looks like interesting, and usually interesting sylvaneth owls have extra eyes, or are a single color, since they're sprites. Although, he does look pretty light...

Either way, I want him

Spoiler:


The Dryads' owl is meant to be a spite or a natural creature. It's the one that came with the Treelord that is pure spite.

That's very much like a knee joint for an Imperial Knight or Armigier. It fits in with the upcoming release I suppose.

Edit: perhaps the Chaos Knight's extra knee joint has proven popular enough that they are providing an Imperial Knight add-on?

Yeah, the first think I thought of is the aesthetic of the arm and leg 'skeleton' on my Knights. Mainly the capsule shaped recess. Does the SM collection feature this as well?
