Well if its current then Chaos only needs Slaves to Darkness to complete their Battletome Roster - assuming that Everchosen is being rolled into a combined slaves book (which the website store suggests is what will happen).

So that means by mid-year we could have two Grand Alliances finished, and Destruction might not take many Tomes to complete them (esp if ogors and orruks get combined tomes, with the former being highly likely).

Tzeentch will just have to join Idoneth and Daughters of Khaine in being without Endless Spells.

Least its not as bad as being the first AoS 2.0 compatible armies - Idoneth and Daughters don't have any Endless Spells and Daughters doesn't even have any terrain either.

Oh yeah. Forgot that the old Altar of Khaine. I feel like DoK will get so similar spells to the Hedonists. Their evil mask instead of the slaaneshy face, a mirror could fit the theme (one goes with the Medusa), whips go well with them, etc.

Ooh, maybe Dispossed will get a mobile Anvil of Doom.
Or new units.
Or something...

Some "Knights Excelsior" killed some humans corrupted with nurgle plague, to stop it from spreading to other villages and cities. Or when a huge Chaos uprising happened in the city of Vindicarum, The "Celestial Vindicators" went berserk and killed all the cultist, But a lot of the cities population got killed too. https://ageofsigmar.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Stormhosts

Stormcast are people drawn in a moment of death against Chaos who call out or are faithful to Sigmar in that moment. They are then reforged by Sigmar and spent decades training endlessly to fight Chaos.

Whilst they aren't yet at a point of frothing at the mouth they are almost as fanatical against Chaos as Chaos Warriors are. Though Stormcast hide it better, and its not even overt to themselves.

But the more reforgings they go through and the more they fight chaos the more you see those chinks in their will and mental state.

It's a neat dark twist to the army that's supposed to be the most pure and god and akin to an army of angelic humanoids.

Which will be why Sigmar creates Primaris Sigmarines, bigger, stronger and more stable than the previous sigmarines

We'll find out soon enough eh.

If it is, they'll hopefully take the opportunity to come up with a slightly less idiotic name for the faction than "deathrattle".

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?
I have a blog now, evidently. Featuring the Alternative Mordheim Model Megalist.

"Your society's broken, so who should we blame? Should we blame the rich, powerful people who caused it? No, lets blame the people with no power and no money and those immigrants who don't even have the vote. Yea, it must be their fething fault." - Iain M Banks

"The language of modern British politics is meant to sound benign. But words do not mean what they seem to mean. 'Reform' actually means 'cut' or 'end'. 'Flexibility' really means 'exploit'. 'Prudence' really means 'don't invest'. And 'efficient'? That means whatever you want it to mean, usually 'cut'. All really mean 'keep wages low for the masses, taxes low for the rich, profits high for the corporations, and accept the decline in public services and amenities this will cause'." - Robin McAlpine from Common Weal

Probably not since then they'll have to change too many keywords on old warscrolls.

You'll get less idiotic "Mortarch of", though. They tend to have reasonable names, so a new one won't likely diverge from that.

I wouldn't read much into that bit. They usually have some reference about sorcery--it's just a tongue in cheek reference to fortunetellers.

Looks more and more like it might be related to a text line in May's WD about the Stormvault in the Stormkeep of the Anvils of Heldenhammer containing "an old ally" of Nagash.

I strongly think it looks like Ynnari too, though I'd believe Tyranids or AoS Death.

Nah it doesn't look like it is attached to a gun, which Maugen Ra's weapon is.

I don't think it is anything Eldar related, as the gem could be anything. Leaning more towards AoS myself for this one.

There is no gem. Those are stylised vertebrae and that's a nodule same as the one on the front.

My first guess on seeing that was something for Death Grand Alliance.

After further consideration I think it belongs to a member of The Warcry warband from the realm of Death, since the game's release is coming this Summer.
