I have to say that I'm glad to see these guys get a proper force and I hope that they are potent enough to be playable.

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.

Have a look at those dice! If they don't look the most awesome thing ever!

But they look super awkward and nearly unrollable....

Also, SQUIGS!

I like 'em. The sguigs riders could be a little less... hoppy, i think, but that's me. I mean, i know they're supposed to be hoppy, but not one of them has a foot on the ground!

but the squigs themselves are great and i want one of my very own.

My GF plays goblins in kings of war and blood bowl using GW models. This new release will probably add to that collection (and we do play AOS in the fall league/campaign so they will be broken out later in 2019 for that)

I’ve been waiting for gobbos to drop since AoS began. I even bought the old totem from Battle For Skull Pass over a year ago in anticipation of their release.

Yea I'm definitely making a pure squig army now thats for sure.

The only problem is I can't do the black and yellow color scheme as

A: black robes is boring and I'd like more color
B: I literally play 40k bad moonz, so I already use that color scheme ))

Hopefully the book has some cool alternate clan ideas.

I quite like these. They fit with the same old school look as the originals but will have the advantage of being in plastic. Are these going to be back to the same scale as the old plastic Night Goblins box set, or the tiny size of those that came with the Skull pass starter?

The only thing I'm still not fond of is GWs overuse of making models look like they're flying or jumping in the air by using whispy thin tendrils. Not so good for transporting or fitting in cases.

I love that cave, but dread to see a price.

I will definitely pick up a box or two of the hoppers and herders. They look fantastic. If we get a nice looking big squiggy monster I will probably grab that as well.

Just guessing but I would imagine it to be around the same price as a herd stone, $30 American.

Ha! that's a fun little touch. Either some soft metal or a very hard head, I guess.

Any word yet on the dice being limited atall?
I usually just stick to normal dice and avoid painfully expensive ones, but these look too good to pass up.
If they are limited though, bad times.
The skaven warpstone dice were bad enough.


Either way, I'm gonna throw a couple of armies on eBay for funds.
Christmas cleaned me out but I've been waiting years for plastic squigs.
Finally have a long term army.

Well, the WH community mentioned there would be more models coming in the new year. Most people guessed mangler squigs and new trolls, which all look fantastic. I'm a bit more interested in that sneaky guy in the troll pic.

When all is said and done, this will be one of the biggest armies in AOS, since it will include the spiderfang grots as well as all the troggoths. I think only Stormcast will be bigger, and even then it will be pretty close.

The way it works is they're "limited" but only kinda/sorta?

They'll be available until they're not. Usually it takes a year for them to run down.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Now, for the business of the new stuff that is not available for preorder this coming weekend. They go up for preorder on Saturday, January 12th.

Those are all really cute! I really like the potion spider goblin with 4 legs. The one on the mushroon walker is also neat.

How do the trolls fitt into the new stuff? Are they just allies because the get on swimingly?
