Ah, I didn't think about the technicality with skyvessels, battalions, and garrison deployment. Nice catch, whoever-it-was.

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.

GW, seriously, its time to get the writers and editors to come in and work when its time to revise the draft manuscripts.

This has gone beyond silly.

Coming from a perspective of having written rules in the past, it is REALLY easy to overlook ambiguity when you and all the others on the writing team are 100% on the same page of how it is supposed to work and have been for the past two months.

My criticism of the writers are instead from a balance perspective of 'do you even understand how algebra works' level of ineptitude.

This is sort of what i assume happens with the ambiguity thing. The rules writers write the rules, editors find ambiguity, then the play testers play. Then feed back goes back to the rules writters, the editors are editing, and then it hits the play testers agien. I imagen after going thru this cycle a few times, the iterations start to become very same-y towords the end, that is when mistakes happen.

If we were talking about fan material, or free to play game, sure. But we're talking about a product, product that is marketed as a premium quality product. And this product is regularly delivered faulty by GW, and requires updates...and then requires updates to the update. I'm sorry, but it points to a faulty process, aka team that is too busy sniffing their own farts to properly write and QA the product. Imagine if the plastic kits were of the same quality...like melty resin with massive airbubbles- you wouldn't just shrug and ignore it?

The only thing it's indicative of is human error. I know that GW is a big, evil corporation, but it's still staffed by people. I honestly can't think of many times they've had to correct an Errata, though. You're making it sound like they have to correct every one. Like I said: It's not a big deal.

Or they could mean THIS...

And when we say it’s the biggest Warhammer Preview ever, we don’t just mean in terms of the reveals. For 2020, the seminar space has been extended to make room for more attendees than ever before.

It's marketing - its always the biggest, best, shiniest, most outstanding amazing whatever ever done. It's always greater than the invention of the wheel or the discovery of colourshapers for working with putties.

Still GW has already launched this year with a big slew of things - new titans for AT; two new armies for AoS (one part revealed the other a "myth"); more Xenos for Aeronautica. Heck maybe there's going to be some more aspect warriors in plastic for Eldar; or a revamped Skaven selection of models coming too!

Though we'll probably also see the primaris bikes/speeder/whatever that got subtly hinted at in a blurry photo a month or two back.

So that’s about 5 weeks then just under. That means about 2 more maybe three Lumineth lowdown’s and then I’m guessing we’ll see like a full range of models at adepticon?

I will be so happy if the Lumenth start coming out at the beginning of June, if a full range reveal at adepticon happens. (or really, just give me the spearmen kit.)

Maybe. We've seen the Shipping Manifest for the Sons of Behemat battletome but I don't think we've seen one for the Lumineth battletome yet. So we'll see one previewed at the end of March at AdeptiCon and the other at Warhammer Fest at the beginning of May would be my guess.

No, it’s the old wood elf lord. Nomad king, I think. Currently plastic clampack.

I love the little details like the lance buckets! The posing on the mounts also works really well; they really do give that sense of charging motion not just parade prancing.

1 hoof on the ground, on an animal which is well known for it's delicate feet even IRL. GW's allergy to stable miniatures is well-established now.

Have you seen a horse run?

One hoof on the ground is realistic
Spoiler:






Of course it depends where in the motion you pause it because no legs on the ground is also realistic
Spoiler:


and two legs too
Spoiler:



It all depends on the motion and direction as well as where you choose to pause the motion as there's a lot of different stages going on. If they were turning a corner you'd expect to see more legs on the ground. But for flat out they can achieve a huge variety of poses and positions of the legs.

The stable miniature part seems most relevant. No feet on the base just isn't going to work... and shouldn't need to be pointed out.
