With the latest info (via Chikout, from WTV livestream) that GW is working on a future Slaanesh release I have zero doubt that after the 40k/AoS Tzeentch products in 2016/2017 and the upcoming Nurgle releases (it looks like 40k and AoS) we will see a similiar treatment to the Slaanesh (Daemons and Emperor Children) ranges and a return to Khorne (40k Angron at least). I'm sure there will be a lot of Chaos releases in the next three years or so.

The community site said a Campaign is planned this year so we might get Slaanesh's plot with that.

New Slaanesh stuff is good I suppose, as long as they don't completely change what Slaanesh is. At least we can stop triggering Kan by saying GW are Squatting Slaanesh.

... the revolutionary concept...
Revolutionary?

Oh GW! Never change.

No wait. Do change. Change heaps.

Slaanesh allegiance abilities probably means the rumoured Slaanesh release is a ways out (at least as far out as GH 2018), but nothing said on Nurgle with the GH 2017 announcement indicates that'll be soon. Which is what we pretty much expected already..

GW had nice comic art for the 40k 8th ed release announcement. They should have that artist draw Kirby's head in a basket below a guillotine and whip it out whenever they talk about revolutionary stuff. Go ahead and criticize them. You wouldn't have a leg to stand on.

That's pretty much how I see it. Between that and the lack of Death releases I probably don't have to pay attention to Age of Sigmar for another year.

I wonder if we'll get more Sigmarines in the meantime...

I know this is 40k and not age of sigmar, but the 8th edition 40k rulebook hints at two possible Slaanesh units that could be in both systems, one is a creature called the tentacled behemoth (warp beast) which is listed as apart of a daemon army that was apart of the last attack on Cadia. It being a daemon beast most likely qualifies it for both systems.

The other is listed as a eldar sup-race/faction which is marked as classified by the inquisition, but when you look at the chart that specific eldar sub faction has a slaanesh icon next to it, my thoughts here is that eldar/elves could be like the tzeentch's tzaangors equivalent some kind of mutated eldar/elves that can be used in both systems.

I hope we get some new order units (not repacks) while hot chaos products are occupying the production line for the foreseeable future.

Thanks, Rydria, indeed interesting stuff, and in case of e.g. Tzaangors GW is even willing to use non-daemon units in both systems (like originally in the RoC books).

Werent Pestigors mentioned to be among Mortarion's units in Mr. Haley's Dark Imperium as well?

They're definitely mentioned in the main rulebook as part of his force organization.

I think Khorngors were listed too for the Black Legion's forces but I'm not 100% sure and would have to grab the main rulebook.

No problem, they do mention Pestigors being apart of the final assault on Cadia, they also mention Kurgath the plague father as being apart of Mortarion's siege of ultramar.

I couldn't find the Khorngor in the cadia force list are you sure that is where they are ?

Edit: I'm happy we can get rid of this annoying slaanesh is being squatted thing that has been around since age of sigmar was released, as a pure Slaanesh chaos player in both systems with 4 armies, it was really disconcerting to have people always bring it up at game night, or on the internet with them saying it like it is gospel.

I also expect a big slaanesh release to go along sides a AoS campaign, like the sylvaneth came just before the previous AoS campaign

Me neither. Hopefully it'll just be one hero to go along with a larger release from another army - maybe a box set of SCE v Nurgle with the new dude involved, to mirror the SM v Nurgle stuff coming up for 40k.

Pro-Tip: Use Imp-Pant, is next to F12.

They might as well put one, it is know from months now that there are at least other 4 chambers locked...

I might like SE but I don't like that they are getting this much...

Anyway, on other note: Death Guard and Black Knights no longer available on the UK online store, as well as Moonclan Goblins.

Might be rebases, but Fellwater Trolls didn't got them, but Death surely will be rebased.

I like that GW is gradually rebasing the older miniatures.

Sorry, I saw it on the book and just take a shot with my phone

The Lord Commander icon is on top of the chambers and temples



(I didn't take that picture btw, I'm on the office right now)

Maybe they don't need to open one of the other chambers to put him on a mini, but It could be cool if they open one chamber with siege engines now that we are getting siege battles and Stormcast doesn't have any weapons for that.

Problem is though that the lord commander chamber is already open and we already recently had a stormcast release so I doubt it's that in my opinion. Of course knowing GW I could be wrong.

It definitely looks a lot like a lord commander icon. With the large number of unsolved rumours and the known releases I could see this being a spring 2018 release. I would not be surprised to see GW do an annual Stormcast release of some kind. The Lord Aquilor is a fantastic mini but I don't know what they could do with a lord commander mini that would get me excited.

Isn't 'Lord Commander' a tittle instead of a Chamber itself? The (for now) closed chambers are Ruination, Sacrosacnt, Covenant and Logister. A Lord Commander could be a release that doesn't need the opening of a Chamber, just a great foe that even the Extremis Chamber couldn't fight agaisnt (Slaneesh rebirth/breaking free maybe?)

More armor, more dragons, more lightning...and more mortal wounds

I don't know considering the Lord Celestant on Stardrake & Celestant Prime designs. Even rulewise I don't know what power level should it have.

I hope it is a piece of terrain for the upcoming Siege rules rather than a Stormcast model. Speaking as a Stormcast player.

Oh, same. (It'd make sense too since Order's doing the fortifying now)

I wonder if it might be a new Knight-questor for a new Warhammer quest next year? The heater shield appearance of the leak would fit another traveling knight.

What a find on that Lord Commander. Im guessing its pretty much certain we are getting a Lord Commander model then. Its the exact same picture.

Everything else in the Mortal Realms desperately needs the attention but I won't mind some majestic Stromcast leader with an even more majestic lion pelt draped over him.
