Oh I didn’t see it that way.

No longer available I didn’t take as ever again.
But yeah temporarily would be a better phrase for sure..

I too was thinking more like the not realising the demand would be high, and this is just on EU or everywhere?

Have the reprinted any of the data cards?

I was under the impression if you didn't grab them on the day the codex dropped you were likely to miss out just like the LE codexes or dice

(all I can see on the UK site is the nighthaunt ones which tends to support this)

Carrion Empire strikes a weird cord for me, as I had always wanted to get a set of ghouls and Crypt horrors, just because I've always liked the models. And the Stormfiends are a Skaven unit I don't have. Plus the two heroes are really nice. I'll have to find some use for the doomwheel, and warpfire though.

But it seems like a pretty good deal.

Yeah, I'm very tempted with the Carrion Empire box. Skaven and Ghouls are two armies I would like to expand on.
But, Ghouls need more new units other than just a new character and Skaven need a new unified army book.
I reckon Ghoul endless spells are going to be nasty looking.

The Data Cards - once out of stock - are never reprinted. This applies both to AoS and 40k and if you see them still available it just means they aren't sold out.

This is one of the reasons that I tend to buy the datasheet cards on release even if I don't buy the Battletome. The tome will be reprinted, but the cards have been so far not been reprinted.

It is very annoying as these cards are very helpful and the tokens are a nice addition.

Just repost the other half of my post as that’s what I wanted to discuss:


Regarding the FEC.
I think in no way are they getting more than that character unfortunately guys..
Don’t get too excited.

Look at all the other army boxes that had new characters in them, how many got other releases?
Necrons, Eldar etc. Not sure on the AoS ones without checking up..

(Endless Spells And a terrain piece though, perhaps, as that seems to be something all armies are slowly getting, whether other new bits or not..)


GW has this to say on the matter:

This boxed set will be out soon – and we’re not stopping there. In the coming weeks, we’ll have even more exciting news on the way for Skaven and Flesh-eater Courts players…


https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/01/05/breaking-news-new-models-new-expansions-and-exclusive-revealsgw-homepage-post-1/

GW definitely wants us to get excited about something.

As for previous versus boxes, it can go either way. The Nurgle snail rider came before the Nurgle release. The Sigmarine assassin in the same box came after Vanguard. Soace Wolves got the obligatory Lieutenant and that's it. The Genestealer half comes in anticipation of the new codex and lots of new models. I wouldn't read too much into the existence of a new character in such a box, in either direction.

Nehekhara lives! Sort of!

My guess is Battletome, Endless Spells, maybe a terrain piece, last couple of armies got one and some didn't so it can go either way.

I could easily see a terrain piece for ghouls, easier than spells even. Most terrain helps with summoning, ghouls summon. It can just be a patch of a recent battlefield full of corpses.

Really hoping for a plastic Varghulf too so we are 100% failcast free.

To be fair, I hadn’t seen they’d said that. Or forgotten if so

But I still think it will just be spells and terrain.
It gets them in line with more recent releases.
I assume before long everyone will have spells and a terrain piece, so getting them out alongside things like this will be best, for any who aren’t getting a new book or anything..

Hoping the Skaven will soon follow. Like all the older factions they are burdened by the older split of forces. Maybe even another SC box for them.

A Skyre Battletome with a piece of scenery, three endless spells and two or three updated plastic kits for the weapon team, jezzail and acolytes would be a solid release.

That would get my money.

I hope the eventual Skaven battletome ignores the Pestilens book and just has all 4 clan rules in one volume. Optimistic I know...

Look like the "variety of weapons" for the big Troggoth is just 4 different heads for the hammer.

The small troggoth do seem to have at least 3,4 different build beside the one in the box cover.

Yeah, it looks like it's just two different hammerheads for the big hammer and the one-handed club + centipede-squeezing fist as the other option. All Dankholds have Boulder Club & Crushing Grip so the rules are all the same regardless of how you model them (Boss has 1 more attack).

I hoped there would at least be an alternative to the centipede fist but nope. Likewise there isn't a spare Squig head to replace the one with the Goblin's legs sticking out, the lacking of which bothers me. The Squig faces from the Herd and Hopper kits also aren't interchangeable (Herd Squigs are smaller mini's). As far as that goes the variety is rather disappointing. I still absolutely love these miniatures though, don't get me wrong. It just means only the one Dankhold kit will be bought by me which I guess is GW's loss for not putting more options in there.

Btw, is there any reason not to put the two Mangler Squigs on separate bases and use them as "Loonboss(es) on Giant Cave Squig"?

What base size does a Loonboss on Giant Cave Squigs have?

GW only has the ancient way too small model on their site and even when they update the square base to a round one the issue still remains that the model still is way too small. That supposedly giant Squig isn't even larger than the new Squig Hopper's Squigs.

Don't see why not. Put them on a scenic base so they're as tall as the stock model, so TFG doesn't whine about LOS.

really not sure about the big troll. Sad since I usually like troll, but he is much too cartoonish (yeah I said it). Stone troll are great though

The mangler squig is terrific. I hate the concept, but it's an incredible mini. Just don't expect it to last long, since it seems like it will break apart simply by looking at it.

The gobbapalooza are pretty cool, bar scaremonger who is just ridiculous. I really like this idea of goblins having tons of different shamans.

Snuffle grots are just alright.


On another subject, god damn, that ghoul king is terrific. Can't wait to see the new kits for that army

The Loonboss on Giant Cave Squig comes on a 40mm square base currently. Manglers come on an 80mm round base. If anything the Manglers may be a bit too big.

You won’t need a scenic base surely?
I’d say the Manglers are already bigger than the giant cave squig

I only just noticed however the Mangler has the poses alternated on the top. That’s something at least.

I skimmed too quickly, thought he meant making two Manglers out of one.

Also,

You wouldn’t need to have the goblin in the squig model, if they’d just made the legs bit modular.
Because I’d bet you could put a closed mouth over the goblin himself as it’s just a face (judging by all the rest any face fits on any body/throat.

But then a different one would just have random legs on his teeth (bit of work cutting off in order if I ever got the kit twice..

And for sure, always a good idea, one boss one normal. Makes the price a lot better..




On the note of hope heads, they are the same size still, it’s just the come in weird halves, but I think they still might fit over the body of either kit looking..

Interesting to note - Flesheater Courts Battletome is now listed as sold out and no longer available on the GW UK Website.

Rare that I've ever seen a Battletome to go out of stock let alone off sale without any news of a new one being released. Interesting times might be afoot indeed! Or just the GW monkey in charge clicked the wrong button perhaps.

It's listed as 'Sold Out - No Longer Available' on the US web store as well.

EDIT: The English version is also 'Sold Out - No Longer Available' in Spain, Germany, France and Australia.
