This thing really confuses the whole Skorne thing. I mean, it was already a little bit of a fuzzy line, but if this thing represents their afterlife AND Ret, it really confuses things.

I don't think they're the afterlife per se. They are manifestations of power.

They each represent one of the major deities of Urcaen.

Marrow
Thamar
Menoth
Dhunia
The Wurm
The Void

Those are the major soul collectors of the afterlife, since the elven gods are either dead or stuck on Caen and the dwarves killed their gods to be free of them. The only one missing would be Cyriss it apparently has some connection with the void.

Pretty sure Archons are like Demi-gods or Saints. Mortals that have been elevated by gods, but not full on gods themselves. Marrow and Thamar were pretty big on them.

The look of the Archons is cool, but I don't really see myself using them. They remind me of the Endless spells in AoS.

I'd love it if they added stuff like rogue beasts, and more interesting Mercs/Minions to the game, rather than these. But, I suppose it fits the theme of the infernals coming in, more than anything else.

I'm still surprised the Orgoth aren't coming back as an enemy? I admittedly hadn't paid attention to Warmahordes lore for at least a decade, but they were always considered the 'Baddest of the Bad' from what I recall. The infernals were just a few monsters in the rpg. They look cooler now though, and I'm guessing they've been built up to be something dangerous in the lore these days. Still... I'd love to see the orgoth come back at some point, but maybe that's a 'last gasp' move for PP?

Hopefully after as well!

The problem with the Orgoth is they'd need to come back with a new gimmick. They were scary pre-Magic/pre-Warjacks but the whole point of them is that the current state of warfare in the Iron Kingdoms was created to drive them out (and Circle gave them a killer plague to finish them off back home as well). They don't really have anything to offer the setting anymore as if they were just coastal invaders they'd be little more than a Satyxis/Khador hybrid.

Infernals lore wise were the IKRPG version of Mythos horrors for the most part. Excuses to tell stories of evil cults summoning horrid monsters into our reality. The reason they're important now is because of all the work that's been done to flesh out the afterlife and tie back to the Orgoth backstory. The Orgoth enslaved humanity until humanity was given the Gift of magic by Thamar. It's never been totally clear how Thamar gave humanity magic, but it involved a deal with dark forces and apparently resulted in the elves being born without souls. Infernals have generally been assumed to be the dark forces and their return basically means that the bill for magic is due and they want all the souls Thamar promised them.

I've been waiting for this army/faction/theme/whatever since like 2004. I am hyped to the max on Order of Illumination Morrowan Cygnar.

So. Friggin. Happy!

Now all I need are powered stormsuits on medium bases as a Cygnar counter to Man-o-war and everything on my 15-year-long wishlist will have come to fruition.

Several Factions have gotten 'Big Dude' 40mm based infantry, like the Cinerators, Centrati, Crucible Guard Storm Troopers, etc. But what has always set the Man-o-Wars apart was (aside from 3 more hit boxes), they're repairable by mechanics. I think this was initially because they were Khador's substitute for Light jacks (despite their being light khador jacks in 'Grind', and the Scrapjack). So, whereas I can see Cygnar getting some 40mm armored troops, I don't see them quite being 'man-0-War equivalents' for that reason. could easily be wrong though, as, most of the factions get more and more of the same troops/solos/etc as they have grown over the years.


Also, Very much digging that Archon of Dhunia! Hope they're on a 120mm base, that would be cool!

The more I read about this Oblivion stuff, the more it sounds like Warhammer Battle - the End Times.

Is Privateer Press trying to pull out a reboot of their game/universe somehow ? Because, well...it really doesn't sound good for the world with this Infernal invasion and litteral avatars of gods coming into battle.

He could make a pretty good slugger leader, but I hope he'll get rules that are stronger than what sluggers get.

PP does sculpts that I love, like, dislike, or hate, but they're always technically competent. That Eiryss just looks shockingly terrible though, like it was sculpted by a beginner. Fortunately there are plenty of good sculpts of her to use.
That gobber gunslinger is the best and I need it. I heard the Black 13th might have a job opening...

Because Dhunia is a fertility-style goddess worshipped by lots of Trollkin.

I know who Dhunia is I'm just saying, frogs aren't mammals so they don't have boobs!
Also IIRC she is sometime being credited for creating both the wurm and menoth so I guess that would make her the most powerful god of the whole setting .

Not a frog, she's the creator of the Trollkin, of course her avatar looks like a Trollkin.

She doesn't look like a trollkin to me, just like a frog woman. And isn't Dhunia also the creator of most of Warmachine's race? Ogrun, gobs, etc.

Sorry in advance to fans of Warmachine/ Hordes. This is coming from a fan of the game until right before they introduced the Crucible Guard and the dumb robot faction. I want to be excited for Riot Quest, but I'm not. The Iron Kingdoms started with a swords and sorcery fantasy world, with crude gunnery thrown in, and now it's evolving into 40K. Given a choice, I'll play 40K. Privateer Press has really lost their way. People are dumping their collections on ebay, the Warmachine/Hordes community has dried up/gone away at my game store. The whole world needs a reset. I was hoping the Infernals book would bring on an Apocalypse/reset, but it looks like it's turning Riot Quest into a copy of Kill Team, and not in a good way. They needed to get low tech, not kick the tech up to space opera level. Their community is too competitive and scares off new players. Their eradication of printed material means there is no buy in to a rich story line. We have a dead-pool, and PP is on my list.

What media will the Riot Quest miniatures be cast in?

I'm actually a fan of the weird space-opera look some of the newer minis have, but I prefer even PP's restic over metal.
