Teaser for new Slaves to Darkness then? With all the Darkoath stuff trickling out over the last few years, and now with War Cry on the horizon, it would make a lot of sense.

That is my bet.

its a chaos something, either AOS chaos or 40k chaos, but still clearly chaos.

Looking thru all of the new 40k Chaos models, none of them have a taloned gauntlet like that. So I think I personally would put my money on AoS chaos.

I have a feeling the hand belongs to Varanguard infantry or maybe resculpted warriors of Chaos. It could also be something from Warcry.

Also seems unlikely, but could be something for Emperor's Children.

I am actually thinking it is something Warcry related.

That looks like a Tyranid, but seems AoS setting. It's awesome, whatever it is! I want one.

And I'm hoping for Varanguard on foot; I have one box of the cavalry (don't worry, I didn't pay for it-it was in a trade to a store). Beautiful models, too bad the rules are rotten.

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

When did we see anything about Varanguard foot infantry? That's something I've sorely wanted for some time. Like, since the first ones were released.

That hand really does seem like one.

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

If I remember correctly, it was mentioned with regards to WarCry.

Varanguard foot infantry sounds awesome.

As cool as War Cry sounds I was more interested in the game than the minis when it seemed like a chaos centric mordheim/necromunda... opening it up to the greater variety of AoS factions makes it feel less thematic, generic, and less necromunda and more Kill Team... Now its just minis, but boy are they looking good.

I suspect the release day rules are just so nobody feels left out, and the game can hit the ground running?

Though I don’t know enough about the overall setting or gameplay to say that with a great deal of confidence.

Considering its the big summer release for AoS it makes sense to add in rules for other factions so that eveyone can get involved fast. More players means more chance for more people to get drawn in and purchase one or two boxes of Chaos Warriors from the new set. Plus each new set sale means more chance that those players might become slaves/chaos players in the future.

I fully expect to see several waves of chaos warbands and a Slaves to Darkness release all coming out after Warcry. If GW can squeeze a Tzeentch Battletome in somewhere nearish as well that would leave Chaos complete with its roster of Battletomes (at least unless GW wants to make Everchosen its own army again).

It also is more likely given that it is supposed to be set in/around the Allpoints, which is a major confluence of the Realmgates.

It's got me wondering now if the reason why we didn't see Sylvaneth this week is they're holding them off for a June 22nd(day after the summer solstice!) release to bring a certain Huntsman back...

Tzeentch already has a full Battletome?

What we’re really awaiting is a Chaos Undecided Battletome. One comprised of the relative flotsam and jetsam of Chaos Followers. Those with but a toe upon the dark path, rather than those recognising the same tree for the umpteenth time?

If we look back to Old Fantasy, many of the tribes weren’t as, well, pious, in their devotion and traitors and turncoats. Rather than being a route to quick power, worship of the Dark Gods was just a fact of life? Where a Khorne Warlord is a lunatic, a Khornate Chieftain could simply be a consummate warrior or hunter? Tzeentch? Soothsayers and various Seers. Nurgle worshipped as a God of nature. That sort of thing.

Much like Beastmen, they were broadly considered of lesser value than followers corrupted within The Empire, as their worship was less a matter of choice.

I don’t expect AoS to follow things quite like that, but I hope for it to be at least acknowledged. Spesh since Sigmar started his campaign to reclaim lands. The Stormcast have done truly awful things in His name. That, combined with ill will following him sealing off Azyr ought to provide fertile ground for the Dark Gods?

I thought the current Tzeentch Battletome was older? Ergo not fully 2.0 functional/up to date.


Also I expect AoS to follow through with that design because that's just what we got in War Queen - peoples who were more barbarian who were not devote nutcase worshippers. Something that divided them from the pure Chaos Warriors who were soul given to Chaos.
