it looks very much like sprue production is being done in a 'just on time' model now simply because they're scrambling to keep up with demand so a week or two of planned Looncurse kit production not happening is an awful lot of boxes they cant send out


True and that's likely to remain the situation at least until the new factory comes online.

I doubt this to also be true for the boxes, booklets and the other contents of the set. You can produce all the sprues in the world - without the rest of the set you can not sell them.

Curious to see if they price Forbidden Power at £45 like Malign Sorcery the book is the same 88 pages but it has only a third of the endless spells. I'm happy to see the Soulscream Bridge has two parts as that could make an interesting terrain piece as well. I wonder if some of the contrast paints were used here particularly the purple smoke.

For the terrain no idea I guess the Enduring Stormvault will be the most expensive AoS terrain kit yet. Might not need to get a Timeworn ruins set if you get the Enduring Stormvault and Sigmarite Dias and spread the columns around. Surprised to see the statue appear in 3 of the sets the Shattered Temple probably didn't need it. The price list should be out tomorrow or Tuesday.


It's kinda ambiguous phrasing:

"The set also includes warscroll cards for each of the endless spells as well as the Penumbral Engine and all of the new terrain kits from the new Dominion of Sigmar scenery range. Speaking of which…"

Not sure if they are saying you actually get the terrain sets in the box or just the warscroll cards. but if it comes with the terrain it would make up the price difference

As worded I would say it's just the warscroll cards and not the terrain in the Forbidden Power set, meaning you get exactly what's pictured...

Not gonna lie, after close to half a year of teasing, this feels like a very underwhelming climax. The whole thing is 4 spells (all of them looking super-Nagashy), one small terrain piece and campaign book with some new artifacts. Not really what I expected after all this time.

We first heard about Forbidden Power at the Las Vegas Open Preview back in February, just three months ago...

It's an Endless Spell upgrade pack and I think it looks good for exactly what it is. I'm actually rather glad its not a dozen more generic endless spells as that would easily chock that system to almost having too many open options for all armies.

Also don't forget Warcry is the other big thing this summer; likely coming alongside or near to a slaves to darkness battletome (one would assume since warcry is focused around mortal chaos followers)

The first story related to it came out in January WD I think, if not December. Regardless of exact amount of time, 6 or 4 months, it's been hyped up as the next big thing for AoS and it turned out to be Malign Sorcery 1.5.

It could be lackluster, too early to make that call for me personally.

What fills me with dread is that this is the first box of 7. It's gonna cost as much as an army just to collect all the spells.

Most of the spells are relatively benign and not worth paying points for. I've stopped getting any for that reason.

GW points don't bring balance. They exist purely for structure. You can get more balance from no points than you do from GW points. You however can get no structure in your game without points.

Something I like about AoS is that the endless spells (mostly) feel like an option and not something I am handicapping myself by not taking. I would much rather they lean on the high side rather than low.

Forbidden Power unboxing article on Warhammer Community:

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/05/13/forbidden-power-unboxedgw-homepage-post-1/

And if two new armies wasn’t enough, Forbidden Power features a new system that allows armies of any Grand Alliance to take Mercenary allies from the Fyreslayers or Flesh-eater Courts – offering you a great excuse to grab a Magmadroth…

Just fyreslayers and flesh eaters? That seems rather odd. I'd think several other factions would be eager to sell their services.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

It looks like they have split up the Mercenary rules as the General's handbook will have rules for mercenary companies.

Maybe these are the setting specific mercenary factions and the General's Handbook will see the full rollout of the mercenary rules?

My excitement just tripled; that rules content seems awesome. Whole new allegiances! Terrain for any army!! Maybe it could herald fortifications-style options, I would be SO happy to see that.

How is it more than the £45 for Malign Sorcery? I just don't see it other than more price rises.

Any prices for the terrain?

Wow those are some high prices. Will still get forbidden power because of all the content, but questioning the terrain.

Thats fairly obscene.
