Hmmm might have to grab a couple sets of the new trees for legion. They’d make great swamp/ Dagobah trees.

Are the new trees a replacement or an addition to the Citadel Wood? Because I happen to think more variety in trees is a good thing to have.

Nope, GW is just too prudish to print melons on the dice.

Yeesh, those dice.

They might as well have put a different glade's symbol on each die face and had you look them up in a chart.

Addition for those who have woods already, replacement for those who don't?

No question about whether a large based monster can fit between those.

On Facebook they answered they are a new model for Wyldwood , you can use them or the old model as both use same space , it’s just the new one is easier to place stuff in( andcteansport I imagine)

Main concern for me is continued availability of the old kit. GW has dropped a number of terrain kits for no good reason, like the tower with the wavy skeleton and the pool of damned souls in the basement. I can understand dropping the more generic Empire terrain when they killed off Fantasy, but that thing was prime AoS material. Or how the got rid of the skull pillar of the Magewrath Throne. I'm just hoping for the continued existence of the old forest.

Very much this - I just ordered 3 more sets of the current woods for a future terrain project I've planned just in case they suddenly disappear, they might go direct only but I can't see the 2 co existing from a retail point of view.

I also hope that the old forests remain. I think I like the shape of their branches more, and regardless, variety is good, especially with natural things like trees.

And I think getting rid of the old terrain is such a shame. There were many excellent kits that still haven't been matched by anything in the new AOS ranges. It was also weird how they brought that crazy observatory tower back, only to swiftly remove it again.

Only the insane have strength enough to prosper. Only those who prosper may truly judge what is sane.

I miss almost all of the terrain they have discontinued. It all had AoS warscroll too.

I don’t get why the Chaos Skullshrine disappeared. That one SCREAMED AoS. Three pillars, couple giant skulls, big cracked Chaos Star in the middle. I had one, accidentally put it in a pile of Mantic terrain to give to a “friend”, and never got it back (he denied ever having it). My mistake, but I still wish I had it.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

Probably because it is an absolute, complete pain to balance miniatures on. If I had that piece I would hack half the details off to replace with level rocks.

Yeah, especially for when an objective is inevitably placed on it and there's a dogpile of models to reach it, it becomes an untenable mess of wobbly model syndrome.

They got rid of that skull pillar so they could keep all the skulls for themselves. Have you seen how much of their terrain in books and White Dwarf is made from those things?!

Except it wasn’t? The upper base was big enough to drop two good sized monster models on it (excluding the massive bases like Allariele and Archaon). You could comfortably have Skarbrand vs a new KoS on top of that thing. I’ll admit, it wasn’t good for Fantasy, since multiple units ranked would be a PitA, but AoS? Should have been fine.

GW put up a Forbidden Power short story on Warhammer Community:

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/05/10/tales-of-forbidden-power-sacristygw-homepage-post-1/

Without any introduction in the post itself. Was anything about this announced elsewhere? Seems so random not to say it's the first of several, even though to me it comes across as if there will be more.

No one expects the * Skaven!

Forbidden Power has been advertised a lot as coming and as following on from the Soul Wars main storyline so whilst the story appears at random it likely fits into the events of that story and how the skaven messed up Nagash's plans and contributed to the Necroquake
It also reads like its telling the tale of the release of one of the new Endless Spells


*Spanish?

It's definitely the guy driving the other half of the boat.

I wonder if we'll hear anything about Forbidden Power tomorrow. Supposedly it got held up much like Sylvaneth and should have been released already.

That defo matches WD this month, as it refers to the Realm of Sigmar terrain (or whatever it's called) as already being out.

And as WD doesn't really feature stuff yet to be released anymore, I'd say you're right.

My local GW official Warhammer store is getting just 2 copies in (bar those pre-ordered in store whilst it was available).

Unfortunately that platform is only a small fraction of the terrain piece. I've played with the thing a lot as my flgs has several.
