On the subject of possible giants, the event advert has a pic of one:

Yeah nothing new.

But..
To choose to use it now, yeah could be somewhat telling.

Each hint or clue alone isn’t much, but all this together. Seems pretty clear.

Were they on individual character sprues in the big boxes, or part of the larger sprue layouts?

Part of the overall sprues. They ain’t coming seperately unless they get new full models.

Not being an AoS player, I wasn't sure either way - but, yes, I agree with you on that one.

It's the same with a bunch of the Death Guard and SM stuff from Dark Imperium.

Not too surprising, though. Those guys are all part of a massive sprue, not a separate sprue.

Yes. Just a bit of clarification that the "missing heroes from boxed sets" didn't include those models (sadly).

You mean they're not a boxed set like Aetherwar?...

More importantly the starters aren't a limited run; one can still go out and buy them.

Consider; Games Workshop rules not so much games but as toolboxes for players to craft an experience from, and open/narrative/matched play just examples of how things can be put together.

If you want to get into the semantics side of things? Games Workshop classifies things like Aetherwar, Looncurse, Carrion Empire, etc as "Battleboxes". They even get their own tab in the webstore(only Wrath & Rapture shows still though).

I was referring to the miniatures in the Aetherwar boxed set which haven't been released separately yet...

If Looncurse is any indication, check back next year? Or maybe December?

I already half-jokingly asked them on Facebook if we should expect to see them around this time next year

There's a pretty good chance that the delay on releasing these hero units was due to the production issues at the factory. Hopefully waiting a year for a hero unit to be released solo isn't the new normal.

Jumping right into Nonsense Fantasy Words and Elves are Better than You tropes.... Did they hire Colin McComb to write this?

The spear wardens still look good, ArgleBargle naming aside. Not sure what to make of Teclis versus Tyrion sectarianism yet, but other than that, not much here that we didn't see before, except perhaps that their spears will a have higher Save modifier than the spears of 'lesser races'

We do get confirmation of Lumineth “archers” though in the guise of the Sentinels unit mentioned. Think that was a new piece of info unit wise. I’m quite interested in seeing what they do with the whole Team Tyrion vs Team Teclis idea. In the old fluff they never exactly saw the world in the same way and in fact were often diametrically opposed in terms of outlook on how to deal with certain situations. Not so much hated each other more of a Captain America vs Iron Man in MCU Civil War style. Now I just picture Teclis looking down at Tyrion saying “ And I just wanna punch you in your perfect teeth!”

Yeah but after his little nap and super saiyan wake up call in the Oak of Ages he was redeemed. What would be interesting is his current relationship with Allarielle as the last thing before they both got sucked into the vortex of Chaos at the end of the World that Was, was them holding on to each other.

Well this caught my eye:

Their armour is bedecked with sun and moon icons, symbolising the twin gods of Hysh, for their warriors are neither Tyrionic nor Teclian exclusively.

Might suggest that there are two different army builds, with the basic troops shared between them but with dual build boxes that allow building Tyrionic or Teclian units. Or it'll turn out to be a bit of lore in the background.

Back to the missing characters, ie, the ones that are starter set exclusive, didn't War of Sigmar claim years ago that there was a separate Khorgorath model? They're almost always accurate when it comes to that stuff. Maybe it'll be released for Warcry?
