I don't think any Eldar fan would like it if they overhauled the aesthetic that remained completly unchanged for a good 30 years, and was the reason they probably picked them as their army in the first place.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

Having the same fething models since Bill Clinton was president is quite boring too.


Looking at your sig you don't buy new models anyway, so why does this concern you?

Btw, as a GSC player since the middle 90's all my faction specific models where from 1989 until the revival. And what a revival it was!

Back when Jes Goodwin did a thing on Voxcast showcasing the Serberys and whatnot, he made a mention of starting to work on some Aeldari stuff after he did the AdMech stuff for Engine War.

I actually quite like the current Eldar range. I’ve painted enough of them in the last few years and I like their look. The only thing I’d really like to see are plastic aspect warriors, and a plastic warlock conclave.

adding onto that, it'd be nice to see a plastic Avatar of Kaine. if only because back in the day the Avatar was phsycialy and stats wise on par with greater deamons and the like and now is a bit small

I was sceptical of the whole Warhammer+ thing when it was first announced. After seeing more details I'm not particularly persuaded. I'm not an AoS player so the model/app access for it is fairly useless to me. Of the other things they annoucned:

1. There are two animations available at launch. That's nowhere near enough to grab my interest and doesn't bode well for the future release schedule. They announced 11 animations in the initial preview and I'd have been expecting around 5-6 of those either at launch or in the first month to make subscribing for the animations worth it.

2. Special VIP...stuff. Well, GW haven't really said what this is so it's not a selling point.

3. Lore videos! From experts! This is an intriguing idea, if only because I'm genuinely interested in how they present it. The actual content is easily available elsewhere though so, again, it's not a selling point.

4. Battle reports. I can get them from numerous places online for free. Those reports probably include fewer rules mistakes and more interesting armies than GW's ones will.

5. Free app access. The 40k app sucks. It's still non-functional for some armies 9 months after launch. Battlescribe of pen and paper are better alternatives.

6. Free mini. Only after 12 months. The Vindicare is nice but the stupid statue ruins it for me and I already own a perfectly serviceable Vindicare model. Granted, he's not carting his own piece of elevated cover around with him, but I view that as a positive. I also note people are mentioning the ~£25 cost of the character model as making the annual sub worth it but that only applies if you think £25 is a reasonable price for those sorts of models in the first place. I don't, which is why I haven't paid that price for a GW character in years.

To me it seems like most of what's on offer is pretty worthless. £50 a year is not a huge amount of money but I'd much rather take that £50 and spend it purely on things I want for my hobby instead of a bunch of online material of dubious or unknown quality.

I miss voxcast. Outside of the company propaganda, it was very enlightening to here things from Jes and other designer's perspective.

Does anyone know if it's been confirmed that Warhammer+ will be available to watch on xbox live?

It is the 3rd Millennium. For more than a hundred months Games Workshop has sat immobile on the Golden Throne of Nottingham. It is the foremost of wargames by the will of the neckbeards, and master of a million tabletops by the might of their inexhaustible wallets. It is a rotting carcass writhing invisibly with business strategies from the early Industrial Revolution Age. It is the Carrion Lord of the wargaming scene for whom a thousand veteran players are sacrificed every day, so that it may never truly die. Yet even in its deathless state, GW continues its eternal vigilance. Mighty battleforce starter-sets cross the online-store-infested miasma of the internet, the only route between distant countries, their way lit by a draconian retail trade-agreement, the legal manifestation of the GW's will. Vast armies of lawyers give battle in GW's name on uncounted websites. Greatest amongst its soldiers are the Guardians of the IP, the Legal Team, bio-engineered super-donkey-caves. Their comrades in arms are legion: the writing team and countless untested rulebooks, the ever vigilant redshirts, and the writers of White Dwarf, to name only a few. But for all their multitudes, they are barely enough to hold off the ever-present threat from other games, their own incompetence, Based Chinaman - and worse. To support Games Workshop in such times is to spend untold billions. It is to support the cruelest and most dickish company imaginable. These are the tales of those times. Forget the power of sales discounts and Warhammer Fantasy Battle, for so much has been dropped, never to be re-published again. Forget the promise of cheaper digital content and caring about the fanbase, for in the GW HQ there is only profit-seeking, Space Marines and Sigmarines. There is no fun amongst the hobby shops, only an eternity of raging and spending, and the laughter of former employees who left GW to join better companies.

From a Warhammer Community article:

Much of the new content will be available through the new Warhammer TV app. This is your hub for all of the new painting, lore, and gaming shows, as well as Warhammer animations. It will be available at launch on iOS and Android, as well as the Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Roku services, so you can watch the latest episodes of Loremaster, Citadel Colour Masterclass, and more from the comfort of your sofa.

We’re aiming to cover even more platforms post-launch, but in the meantime, Warhammer TV will also have a dedicated website that you can access from your desktop, mobile, and tablet as needed.


I assume Xbox Live comes under "even more platforms post-launch".

Not brilliant that the "top company" they've had working on this wasn't able to sort out an Android TV app for launch when there's a Fire TV app.

It's not quite zero porting required between the two, but it's not much in the grand scheme of things and it rather suggests a rushed, badly planned launch.

In practice yes though they're very similar. But they have different application manifests and realistically different user interfaces.

Did they ever reveal who the "top company" is? I wouldn't be surprised to learn its a middling but established company that nobody has ever actually heard of

No, but I'll figure it out within half an hour of the app going live.

When they showed Gork and Mork, I'm pretty sure they got them mixed up.

I don't blame them for thinking the fiery red one is Gork (I made that mistake), but I'm pretty sure the blue one is Gork and the fiery one is Mork

If Hammer and Bolter is just hot takes/re-tellings of famous battles/rivalries etc, I'll take it.

Think who they could cover with it, Mephistons story is pretty epic, the last chancers, an Eisenhorn short story, there's too many to mention and that is just the imperial possibilities.

I got Batman: The Dark Knight Returns vibes from it in terms of the animation (animated comic as you say), I like it.

I enjoyed it for the story and the animation was mixed to me. Some very good animated sequences mixed with some slide-show-ish sequences and some weird choices.

Though overall. I still enjoyed it. The Art-style itself was great and the voice acting was really good. I was skeptical for the voice acting because of Angels of Death, but this has put my mind at ease.

Not too bad for a first episode.

The Orks reminded me of the Gummi Bears, of all things…

The story was fun (though well known), and the art did look nice. I assume Warhammer+ will have a variety of animation styles, but this alone isn’t enough to convince me a subscription is worth it.

Music - absolutely perfect.
Voice acting - very solid!
Orkyness - spot on
Artistic designs - really good!
Animation - works for what it intends to be which is more of a visual comic than it is a full fluid animation.

The style of story telling through narration also works well for summarising the whole story that its aiming to do.



All round its great! Sure if they smooth animated the whole thing like an anime from the 80-90s it would be "better" but GW isn't working with those budgets nor staff on this project.
I'd say its a very solid first step and we know this comes alongside other animations with other styles. It will be interesting to see how the different styles evolve and develop. It's also nice to see it being a solid intro, you don't really have to know too much about the setting to get this animation and what it shows you.
It also does the important thing of leaving an open ending so it leaves you wanting more and leaves the opportunity for more to be made.



Overall very solid and makes me eager for more.
