As lovely as they are (and they *are* lovely), I can't help but be a bit disappointed that they're not more lovecraftian / pirates-of-the-caribbeany - was hoping for more horrific mutant fish-men sort of things. These are ultimately just another bunch of elves. Sorry, aeioulves.

While some might be overjoyed by this army, and the actual design work of the models are da,n nice, im facepalming HARD.
Sea waves, sea creatures and fish DONT belong in a game that is ment to be played on dry land.
This is the wrong army for this game, the army belongs in DeepWars!

But on the flip side, my ghosts just got more stuff to scare to death!

But regardless, they look amazing. Especially that sea cloak character!

The first elves in the video (00:32) have eyesockets but no eyes.

All told, the infantry does have a very Dark Eldar-y aesthetic, I feel.

They are elves, that's really all I can say about them. Feel like GW missed a really good opertunity here to make a cool lovecraftian theme but oh well.

For me it's just another sigmar army, that suffers from the same problem all of them do. Way to over designed models.

kill ALL the orks!

Needs some serious mental gymnastics to rationalise a table with these guys facing off against, say, zeppelin-dwarfs...

I confess, though I'm no AoS player those models do look impressive, particular the large Character model with the water cape and giant headfin. I'm curious, which Fantasy character is that meant to be, or is it a new one GW is creating? I'm not well versed in Fantasy lore.

Still, zero mention of Chaos updates/models this year at Adepticon? :( Such heresy cannot be forgiven.

Slaanesh was mentioned as possibly 2018/2019.

I got nerd chills while listening to the intro. I wonder what's meant with: "in the blackness we found hope ". I'm looking forward to the deepkin release. Not sure, if I'm going to jump or just dip in.

So far what we know is that Teclis created the Deepkin and they fled him.

So maybe "in the blackness" means that they found a way to hide themselves from him and the Chaos Gods?

We don't know. It might be Teclis.
It might be Sea Lord Aislinn(an individual who was, I might add, said to be the product of a union between Mathlann[Elf god of sea & storms] and an Elven princess)--who was (maybe) killed during the events of Khaine, but his body was thrown into the deeps.

I'm glad they didn't do Cthulhu esque. Would have been too tropey and overlapped with Shadowkin which I feel will do that theme much better. The one thing I don't like model wise is the howdah on the turtle. It seems unfinished, almost like the kit wasn't assembled all the way and there is still plain plastic squares of the frame exposed. But other than that everything is between cool and awesome. I really like the fish-eel-thing-riders.

But the octopus & sea cloak characters... Those are something else. They are obsolutely jaw-dropping, a massive flag for while GW has its flaws it is still miles beyond anyone else in terms of model design and execution.

I feel like with the howdah on the turtle, it would look better if the turtle was in a more 'actiony' pose.

I kinda like them for the most parts. However, I was hoping they were going to bolster this faction with the corsairs and the leftovers of the Dark Elf factions. Makes me wonder what the hell GW intends to do with the Corsairs, Cold Ones, and so on. At this point I think they'll just be discontinued at some point.

Cold Ones are their own faction called "Drakespawn Knights".

Well the corsairs and a large number of other plastic elf kits are in the same spot DoK were until just a few weeks ago. I expect that a few others will get the same treatment eventually (Phoenix Temple, Corsairs, and Skycutter are my bet) while some of the smaller ones may get rolled together into one battletome or remain as they are for use as allies (one of the big reasons the ally rules were such a good move IMO). If they were going to be cut I suspect GW would have cut them when they did the initial go, afaik nothing has been cut since then.

Skycutter is part of Swifthawk Agents. That faction is actually fairly okay provided they give us a damn hero on foot.

We already knew going in that they'd be using some kind of magic to move about above water as though they were in water.
