Flesh-Eater Courts vs Skaven "battle box" with a new hero for each, and a promise of more releases for both factions.

yeah, you're right, all the endless spells are just different ways of delivering mortal wounds. Just like the prismatic pallisade and its LOS blocking and ranged offense reducing capabilities.

Oh wait.

Or well, like the soulsnare shackles whose primary function is to reduce movement from the enemy.

What?

Or the emerald lifeswarm which is about healing, or the chronomantinc cogs which is about either adding protection and magical proficiency or speed to your army, or the spell portals which are about adding range and path ways to your spells.

...

Well, are faction specific spells are indeed just different ways of adding mortal wounds like the beastmen dirgehorn that reduces the hitting capabilities of the enemy, the stormcast dais arcanum that boosts casting ability and the caster's speed, or the gitz' cauldron that allows the caster access to all the spells of a specific lore.

...

Oh wait, no, Endless spells are just not different ways of dealing mortal wounds.

That Court vs Rats set is quite tempting. It's amusing how lopsided the battle is, but those ghouls are totally outgunned. I'm guessing they're pure Skyre? I'm fine with the rats going all in on the wyrdtech!


Plus the lure of new units for both? Oh dear me...

Clan Skryre is the only skaven I'm interested in and IMHO the only clan which should have their own battletome of the remaining clans (Pestilens already has a battletome). If Clan Skryre does get their own battletome it will be a hard decision between them and the Gloomspite Gitz.

I'm guessing $130 to $150 for this one. Somewhere in that price range.

The last like 4/5 have all been the same price. I don’t expect this one to be different.

Edit: actually, wake the dead was very slightly cheaper.

There aren't any new units in there, just new commanders.

Hard pass on that box for me. Seems way too specialized to be a good idea.

TBF with the indicated weapon loadout on the stormfiends the battle is evenish depending on what the heroes are like. Hopefully they will FINALLY nerf warpfire projectors to be balanced with the other weapon options. But regardless super excited for new characters and implied battletomes for them. I have a Skryre army already and I've always liked FEC too.

The reason I say the prices I did is because they have some different mechanisms in place when it's a 'theme' set like this or Blight War vs, say, Wake the Dead or the like.

That is pretty exciting, I hope they release a plastic varghulf. The current resin model is okay but i'd rather see them phase out that material, it could also use a kit with a different pose and maybe two head options. I came really close to starting FEC last summer, but decided to hold off cause I figured for all I know they'll continue to have a limited range of plastic models for a long time. I kind of dislike these new models being exclusive to boxed sets though, makes it annoying trying to collect them.

TBH I don't think FEC are getting anything other than that hero, some endless spells and maybe a terrain piece. That's quite a bit really but I don't think we'll see any new units or other characters. My reasoning is that the new hero is really just a naked guy with a fancy pauldron. The FEC models don't really match their background, and this guy is way too similar to the old range to signal a broader update. IMO of course.

Maybe, but the varghulf isn't really a new unit. It just seems like a good time as any to update that kit and finally dump that meh resin version. The varghulf seemed like a popular choice in peoples lists, and is one of the more memorable units in the army. It's like the only old model in the army that needs an updated kit. Endless spells and a terrain piece does seem more likely, but I hope they get a more substantial update than what the beastmen got. It might be best if I just prepare to be disappointed though.

That's quite a bit of snark for being clearly and demonstrably wrong. The new cauldron is solely a buff to the casting wizard (+1 casting/deny and knowledge of the whole lore), so doesn't do a single wound of any kind - which he pointed out in the post you quoted.

The moon does a few token mortals, but it's primarily a way to debuff enemy wizards (-2 to casting if nearby).

The last two do toss out mortals, but one is a stationary area denial tool and the other allows spiders to move freely across it, providing them with a positional advantage.
