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'
GW can't win; if they use existing words to name their units they get blasted for it, but if they make up new words they get blasted for that too. None of this stuff is any worse than half the names from LotR or any number of other fantasy novels.

When you get right down to it, "Orc" and "Hobbit" are kind of dumb names. We've just come to find them endearing over the years.

Well, Alarielle doesn't have the AELF keyword, given that she has turned her back on her former race. As they were all gods together, I'd guess she would at least somewhat respect him. Of course, she DID marry Malekith, who was Tyrion's worst enemy.

Of all the examples to pick, you go for the Lord of the Rings, books with probably among the most careful use of language in all of Fantasy, or indeed fiction in general. Where primarily old English words of Germanic origin are used over those derived from French and Latin, to better fit the intended setting, and several new languages with a near-realistic grammar, vocabulary and internal logic are employed in ways that really only benefit the author rather than any normal reader. But yeah, those "Knights of Dol Amroth" really sound very silly indeed.

I have also never heard a single person complain about the names "High Elf archers" or "Lothern Seaguard".

Right behind you.

I'm assuming you missed out on the unit champion is hinted at being a Wizard with a one-trick spell, eh?
They are led by High Wardens, imperious Lumineth officers who stand at the rear of each phalanx. Easily identified by their decorative back-banners, the High Wardens direct the warriors under their command and channel the magic of Hysh into their enchanted weapons to the utter ruin of their enemies.

Perhaps it's a command ability much like the Mortek Guard? Was he also the one who carries a lantern out of the group?

You highlight my point exactly; the distinction between 'silly' and 'not silly' has very little to do with what the name actually IS.

But honestly it just gets under my skin when people confuse their personal subjective opinion with objective writing quality.

And yeah, I know...

You must be new to the hobby; just a few years ago we didn't get articles like this at all. If we want more in-depth info going for the encouraging route is more likely to get that result than the ungrateful one.

Can we please stop with the "mustn't upset the GW, or they might get upset and stop"? Those articles build up hype, they aren't doing us some amazing favor by posting them-they're a marketing tool. We can ask for the marketing material to at least be interesting surely?

Who would have thought, if you say things in the stupidest way possible they sound stupid. When the Teclis article comes around it'll be "who would have thought, things with wings fly. Wizards casts spells..."

I love how we've gone from waiting for GW to announce things to scouring shipping manifests and cargo container logs to decipher the future of our game.

Perhaps a small bit. It might make for some amusing shenanigans on GWs part on the future. They might also end up being more open about their production timeline if we just rip it from databases available to us.

Props to the folks who hunt these down though. They are either often bored, or fanatics in their own right.

There’s no real hunting down they are on public record no one is spending hours (or even minutes) looking for them. GW have altered their declarations now to be as generic as allowed - X no. of pallets of boxed games Y units shrink wrapped it’s the third party stuff from Asia that’s normally more descriptive and gives hints at what’s coming up for release.

Well yes, but it still feels like a very low-stakes Shadowrun campaign
I do wonder, considering we still saw nothing of the Seraphon past the new years' announcement, if they will actually be bundled in a battlebox vs the tall bois.

You're assuming its a model! GW might be pushing into new areas of gaming hither too untapped by the market.

The Battletome is sold alongside a boxed set which contains a laser pointer, small heat mat, ball and a feather on string on a stick.
Alongside it is a comprehensive booklet that details how to train the first of your new models - Felis catus. Once simply a distraction or a random wandering creature across the board, now you get to control one as your whole army!

GW will likely expand upon this with other common and uncommon Godbeasts of the battlefield including squirrels, sneks, dragons (iguanas of course) and chinchillas.
