A friend told me that a friend of his who does actually have friends in the design studio, let slip that there will be a zoat for BSF. Now, obviously that's a lot of steps between me and someone who actually knows for sure and the same 'source' has given me some incorrect information in the past (but they did tell me about ork killa kans a few months before they were released, so not completely unreliable), so add plenty of salt. However, I have some confidence that this could actually be true. It certainly fits the overall quirky retro stuff they have been doing recently.


I think Blackstone Fortress is a way for GW to effectively add these fun little creatures into the miniature range without making an army out of them. Especially if those armies are long dead lore-wise. A galaxy this big always has outliers, like what we have with UR-025. Zoats were wiped out mostly.

I’m most expecting stuff like a Grox or an Enslaver appearing as part of some enemy expansion, similar to what we had with the ambull


It is. It's a great medium to add in stuff that might not fit a big general release, and the game itself is a lot of fun. I'd love to see more tiles added for more maps in the future as well.

What I wish this was. A new CWE/exodite/ aspect model. Maybe they have taken note of the feedback??? Maybe ? no? ok...

What it will be, part of a scenic base for a primaris space marine fighting on an eldar world and a big middle finger to the non marine players....

In reality it will most likely end up being a garbage tier ynari/harlequin character... or something AOS.. :(

However this is the first time I am actualy excited about a rumour and if it is what I hope it it I will actually pre-order from GW and let them take all my money for the first time lol.

Interesting point. Is there any really prominent elf from WHF that wasn't officially ported to AoS yet?

We're running low on old factions to bring back to 40k

Maybe Ork clans or feral orks.

And that's all I've got.

(Squats?)

Sad thing is, they had potential new, original faction (instead of just endlessly rehashing old stuff) in Second Imperium mooks but for some utterly inane reason they squashed that plotline in obscure, unimportant side book by new author. Because what we got instead, boring single Space Marine chapter pointlessly sitting on their butts last 10.000 years doing nothing, is totally what the setting needed, eh?

What new faction was squated in what side book?

Does Araloth count as a prominent elf for AoS?

That’s not true, they’ve had new models since then. They just still have a lot of old models left too.

it's not a troll, just seletctive memory. that and a sense that it wasn't a massive model line revamp so "it doesn't count" I've got a friend who plays Necrons, who often complains that necrons haven't gotten anything new in forever, I've occasionally pointed out the plastic Cryptic but I understand what he MEANS

Ultimately the power of an Inquisitor extends as far as he can make it extend

No, Craftworld Eldar have had quite a few models since 2006. The current design of the Aspect Warriors was 2006 or 2007 ish, along with the plastic War Walker and Wraithlord, and then since then there's been plastic jet bikes, big gun platforms, the fliers, Wraithknight, various characters, Wraithguard, Fire Prism.

I really wouldn't be too surprised if that happens, it makes sense. One wonders if we'll get a few weird Xenos bits for BSF - Hrud, or Tarellians? A space Slaan? They could use it to move some of the remaining Kroot to plastic too. It's an opportunity to do small groups or individuals without needing to do large ranges.

I'm kind of hoping stuff like Tarellians show up as Adventurers. Relatively minor, but otherwise fighty species would likely be attracted to Precipice, and the joys it offers.

Hrud? Would have to be antagonists, as the fluff I'm aware of very much paints them as an infestation, so unlikely to travel in low numbers.

As much as I'd prefer it to be Aspect Warriors (maybe a decorative base for an Exarch), I'd be ok with it being Fulgrim. Both Fulgrim and Angron need playable minis if nothing more than completion sake (why are Tz & Nurgle so special to have their Primarchs out?)
Throw in 1 more Loyalist Primarch and call it a day for playable Primarchs. And it's ok for Chaos to have more playable Primarch since big Monsters are part of their schtick.

You don't need a big monster when you have faith in the almight God Emperor.

Things we know will come soonish is Sisters of Battle, Chaos Knights, Ad-Mech and Iron Hands named character (probably bringing more primaris).
And It feels likely Emperors Children will follow the recent Daemon release.


In a possible large campaign with these factions, and with this latest rumor pic, it would be cool to see SoB going up against Ynnari instead of Slaanesh, just as an example.
Come to think about it, Slaanesh would really want in on that fight too
