I’d learn towards regular undead on that one over FEC and ghosts.
The style and wearing on it makes me think it will be a new hero sadly and not a new unit.


Can we just get plastic blood knights though?
£62 for 5 failcast knights is an easy skip.

Looks a bit too 'rusty', but dark elf black guard have pretty similar halberds, too.

There have been some rumblings in lore and things dropped recently that insinuate there are more dark elf factions out there than what we've seen, so that wouldn't be a far cry.

But as you said the rusty look has me still leaning undead.

Like a true Tomb King, change (to AoS) has left me bitter and vengeful.

The new halabard seems very similar in terms of being beaten-up to the one from the Underworlds warband. I wonder how It's related to the other FEC-looking rumour engine, the one with the greatsword.

Undead men-at arms perhaps? Either for soul blight or FEC?

How about undead dark elfs then.
Vampire darkelf pirates!
They would not even have to update the design

I’m honestly still waiting for vampire coast stuff from the game.

Sadly though I doubt we will see a new army again soon, especially another death faction.
Loads of potential but OBR are still relatively new to death as it is.
There are also several armies that need some love too.

Would be very pleased with some new additions to the FEC range, they have a lot of fun lore that is in dire need of physical representation.

Soulblight would be equally delightful, I'd even settle for a Warcry warband if it meant a plastic vampire lord and some thralls

That's going to be quite a long wait I imagine. Although the "Vampirates" could easily exist within the AoS setting, they've so far only been a thing in the former Warhammer Fantasy setting as far as I'm aware, and a minor thing at that. That said, I'd love to see a dedicated range for them one day - vampire and zombie pirates are simply fun, and hard plastic crabs could look amazing. Maybe they'd overlap too much with the new aquatic Elves, though they could equally make for an interesting nemesis for them in the lore. And they are lacking in pirate hats, guns and large crabs. At the same time, they may simply not be original enough for the AoS setting, which means they are more likely to be a possible future addition to the revamped Warhammer Fantasy - so maybe sometime later this decade..?

It would be nice if there could be Order or Destruction aligned Undead, instead of Death. I mean I know Nagash is supposed to think he has all undead under his sway and so far that’s true, even extending to a few technically living goobers like the FEC, but wouldn’t it be a shock if he didn’t? Not just to Nagash either.

And yes, vampirates with zombie crews modelled after the Cursed crew of the Black Pearl and/or the Flying Dutchman under Davy Jones would be amazing. In either Warhammer setting.

Might also be part of a new Chaos Warrior kit? The halberds from the upgrade pack are pretty similar, including the battle damage. Would be weird as right now there's the newish Start Collecting box alongside the old kit, but the warscroll has a halberd option that the SC box doesn't provide ...?

Yeah, looks like a bone weapon of some kind, fairly big given the scale of the brushstrokes, so I’m thinking either Sons of Behemat (but we’ve already seen them) or maybe something for the new season of Underworlds?

Bone squig?


Looks somewhat reminiscent of the big 'ol shoulder pad the orc boss has. Definite orky vibes too it.

It *could* be snakebite related. We know at least one snakebite ork is coming, so maybe they're gonna get a lot more (or, it's just a single character that'll be part of an army bundle)

Honestly, I think there's more for Snakebite coming than we think.

From that video teaser a few weeks ago, that also showed off Lelith, ad mech person, and the new sister. The ork is shirtless, has some form of squig/animal hide on his back, and his gun has an icon with two fangs. Although their icon is usually a snake, I figure the two fangs is also a reference to them. (Although the melee weapon has a red fang as well, so maybe the Red Fangs are another ork-y thing.)

That's the "Bad" glyph, not a Snakebite one. I did not get a Snakebite vibe from him, he looked more like a generic Nob sized "modern" Ork sculpt (like the buggy crews) to me.

Oguhmek paints Orks (and Necrons): 'Ere we go!

Judging by the size of that I’d say behemat teaser or maybe OBR are getting a new critter.
