Those pictures are just the default grand alliance images from the core book, I wouldn't read into them at all. That said an ogor book is not an unreasonable expectation imo.

3, 5, whatever--"more than one" Marine books equates to "quite a lot of them" to some people.

Also it could be argued that you could only have lowered that to 2 anyway. 1 loyal, 1 chaos. So it was only one extra book on top of that.
Would have been different if it was the year before maybe..

Hi guys, some tasty Warcry leaks for you. No reason to believe me, I learnt about all this last night and thought it was too cool not to share. I'm from Bristol and several of my clubmates are old friends with the main rules designer on Warcry and have been testing the rules for ages and are talking pretty openly about the game now it has been announced.

Warcry is exactly what people have guessed and pretty much fantasy Kill Team, warbands of 4-20 models, rules for narrative/campaign, matched and open and is set in the Eightpoints (series of realm gates to all different realms, some controlled by the good guys, some by Archaon, Shyish gate controlled by Nagash, Beasts gate by Destruction), all being fought over by the various sides. This is a cool setting because it allows boards from different realms to be combined, justified by huge f-off realm gates linking them up.


Factions are not limited to just Chaos and the amount of avalible factions is pretty much everything avalible in AoS. It seems to differ from Kill Team in two major ways, the first being that Commanders are part of the core rules, not an expansion, and every force is built around and must contain one hero (no more, no less), with the narrative of the game being built around the retinues of mighty champions, and psychic powers (magic), not being in the core game, with no warband options for wizards or any other models able to cast spells. Expect the first main expansion to be magic flavoured with endless spells and full rules for every avalible wizard mini.


The amount of models and factions avalible is staggering, with pretty much every non cavalry, monster or wizard/priest mini avalible in plastic listed for its faction (I didn't check thoroughly, but there were no Finecast options listed for skaven at least). Flyers like Kharadron endrinriggers and Stormcast prosecutors were available, and squig hoppers/boingrot bounders and skyfires seemed to be an exception to the cavalry rule.

The factions I counted are:
Khorne, Nurgle, Tzeentch, Slaanesh, Slaves to Darkness (marked StD troops can be included in god lists, to help out Tzeentch with their lack of non magic user heroes I guess), Beasts of Chaos, Skaven,

Stormcast (interestingly for Order there are rules for a couple of Stormcast heroes leading warbands from other factions), Fyreslayers, Kharadron, Dispossessed, Free Peoples, Seraphon, DoK, Deepkin, Sylvaneth, Wanderers, Exiles and Highborn (these last two being grouped together names for the DE and HE mini-factions)

Legions of Nagash, Nighthaunt, FEC


Gloomspite Gitz, Ironjawz, Gutbusters, Bonesplitterz
Interestingly all the Shadespire/Underworlds warbands have unique profiles and rules, I think this is supposed to build on the popularity of Shadespire and tempt people who exculively play it to try Warcry.

The starter set is apparently different from Kill Team in that it contains all new models, with a Darkoath warband lead by a Varanguard on foot taking on you guessed it, Stormcast. As these models are brand new, their rules were not being playtested, but the guy playtesting did seem to know about them. Expect the Stormcast to be lighter armoured and agile/gladiator looking. Interestingly it was mentioned that as Archaon's agent the Varanguard hero can lead any Chaos Warband, much like some Stormcast heroes being able to lead any Order one.

Expect the range of boxed sets on launch to be huge, following the same model as KT, with a flood of warband and battlefield boxes using existing minis and scenery coming out with exclusive cards in them. One example of a warband box given was a Dispossed one, featuring a Warden King, Ironbreakers and Irondrakes, so potatosacks rejoice I guess.
Anyway, beilve what you choose to, that's pretty much all I remember (I've never played KT so didn't ask specific rule stuff), I'll be back if I learn any more I guess

Thank goodness we are finally getting a box set with more Stormcast for Warcry. They are surprisingly rare in AOS releases.

Well, hopefully it will move this thread on from 2 pages of marine codex discussion, because there definitely isn't enough of that.


I'm a little puzzled by this concept though, I thought Archaeon had complete control of Allpoints, and that's how he invaded the various Realms with chaos armies. If others have the gates and literally every faction can get in to have skirmishes, then... well... what's going on?

Wouldn't the topside of Shadespire ('above' the mirror realm or a similar place) be a better pick for this kind of thing?

Even if it's partially true, I would hope that some monsters and cavalry could be taken. They make nice centerpiece models, typically.

At the end of the realmgate wars order took control of two of the realmgates at the Allpoints. It is very much the front line of the war between order and chaos.

Seems plausible, but I'll take roughly one Carthage of salt (especially since it's from 4chan).

I still think its going to build on all those short stories of Khorne lords running Free-For-All deathmatches. There are multiple instances in the lore to the point where its almost all that Khorne lords do once they get to a point where they are lording over a fortress and not conquering.

They've had everything in them too from Aelves to Stormcast. So a multiplayer (more than 2) game where each person is running a hero in a deathmatch; perhaps one with a gauntlet style with objectives, weapons, powerups, escape paths etc... all on a board system.

If its a system that is like killteam where you level up a small warband and keep it mostly composed of troopers (a hero is fine ala commanders) and keep the egregious excesses out, I'll be all for it.

GW points don't bring balance. They exist purely for structure. You can get more balance from no points than you do from GW points. You however can get no structure in your game without points.

That post spread like a virus in less than 24 hours.

I'd be really happy with the highborn (such a nicer ring that the high elves) getting more love but when I'll see it I'll believe it. Mixing SCE and Highborn would be something I wanted to do for a while.

The genestealer blip mechanic was mentioned by GW staff at the new year open day, from what I recall. The 4chan rumour had new units in it that turned out to not be real.

I've been told this lines up with what's happening from a different and reliable source.

Which is a shame, I was hoping the WarCry project had been given more new minis than the starter (like the Kill Team team were asking for last year and look to have finally got).
