I think this is worth it’s own thread as the GAMA one is closed now.

The time has come to shed more light on the dark world of Warcry, with our first proper look at one of the game’s many warbands…

Like all Warcry warbands, the Iron Golems offer a more complex, nuanced take on Chaos than we’ve seen before. The Iron Golem miniatures combine classic Chaos aesthetics with cultural cues based on the Mortal Realm from which they originate. Hailing from the Realm of Metal, these warriors are renowned for the quality of their smithing, believing themselves chosen by Archaon himself to forge arms and armour for the Slaves to Darkness.

Warcry offers us the opportunity to explore Chaos not just as the ‘bad guys’ but as living, breathing cultures, and allows us to look at facets of Chaos rarely seen on the tabletop. The Iron Golems, for example, count not just humans among their number, but duardin and ogors.

Warcry will also let you explore the (terrifying) fauna of Chaos. Just as Gryph-hounds and Aetherwings show the sorts of creatures that dwell in Azyr, Warcry reveals an assortment of Chaos critters, including new plastic Furies and Raptoryxes – ill-tempered creatures capable of bisecting a man with a snap of their beaks.

And we’re just getting started! We’ve got more warbands and models to reveal to you yet…

But what if you’re unshakably loyal to Sigmar, Nagash or the sheer raw power of Destruction? Well, good news – at launch, 9 non-Chaos factions will be available to play with rules of their own. See if you can guess just what they are…

For Chaos fans and their foes alike, Warcry is shaping up to be an amazing game. Stay tuned for more news, right here.

The game will have continued support in a similar style to Killteam.

I'm hoping the top right symbol is for free peoples, it would be great if stormcast weren't a part of this game. It would be too much like having space marines in necromunda, in theory they'd just wipe everyone else out.

I'll keep track of this in case any of the models excite me. I like the look of the Iron Golems and Darkoath from an overall standpoint but they're not what I'd want for myself; probably have to wait and see if the Tzeentch faction (I can only assume that's what the eye represents) tickles my fancy.

I don't think (and hope) there will be any warbands dedicated to a single god. Maybe a warband from each of the different realms.
Iron Golems=Chamon
The other warband=Ghur
and so on.

I think the eye is more likely Idoneth Deepkin

At a guess the 9 are from top left anticlockwise

Ironjawz, Daughters of Khaine, Legions of Nagash or FEC, Gloomspite Gitz, Idoneth Deepkin, Bonesplitters, Nighthaunts, Stormcasts.

Yep - it would mean that either one of the original six weren't chaos (i mean, how many versions of chaos can we really get?), or that a band not yet put onto the chart are still coming (skaven?...)

I see what you mean, it does read a bit like that. It'd be an odd way to introduce the new shadow-elves, though.

It also looks like it's almost superimposed over another symbol (see the partial swirl peeking out on the top left). Maybe they didn't want to spoil something? Or just botched arranging the nine and ended up with a 4x2 setup?

I am loving the Iron Golems, they will probably be the faction I play in Warcry. It's extra cool they have weapon options and can be positioned a bit. Also glad to hear some other factions are getting rules for those who aren't interested in Chaos.

Yeah, I thought the same thing. But then I remembered my copy of firestorm and found this:

So I guess it's Nighthaunt? It's just different enough to leave some doubt and ambiguity though.

Yep looks like Nighthaunt to me and they are pushing Nighthaunt in a big way in AOS 2. It looks more likely from that image that the winged skull is FEC rather than Legions of Nagash. FEC probably suits the setting better.

I hope the 9 non Chaos factions were planned from the start and aren’t just shoehorned in as a response to people online complaining that it was Chaos only.

So we have 6 Chaos factions, and it's seemingly like we are getting each one from a different realm, which is very cool.

The Iron Golems are from the Realm of Metal, and it appears the other warband in the starter is from Ghur, which leaves 4 warbands unaccounted for. What 2 realms won't get a warband? Life and Light? Light and Heavens?

In the reveal video the Iron Golems are fighting a warband in the art in the beginning that is dressed in black, have stormcast style masks and curved blades. They look to me like they are from the Realm of Shadows.

Heaven and light would be my guess. Chaos warbands from Azyr wouldn't make much sense and GW have been fairly tight lipped about Hysh and its residents so far. That said I wouldn't rule out a realm of light Chaos warband in the future.

So we’ve got 14 icons to work with,and 1 not revealed yet (assuming they counted right. I just hope someone didn’t write that article while looking at the picture of 9 lit up icons (4 each edge and then Iron Golems in the middle), if it was someone non GW I would d figured it out wrong, but surely they should know their own stuff - so I hope it’s jut one not revealed purposely

I don’t think any of the originals aren’t chaos. Perhaps likely the realm option that people have suggested.

Shaven are chaos though so maybe not one of the 9. They could be in the realm ones somewhere though, or if it isn’t 6 variant realms then easily just one of the first 6.


My main question is when it and all the bands are out..

But also, if the 6 are new band sculpts (which it seems), and the 9 end up not being (which I wouldn’t be surprised, as that’d be a lot for first release, or even following - depending how they set up the book).
It would mean you just use existing models from the 9 factions, which is great, but for instance I have some Khorne mortals from that first big box, I’d quite like to use in Warcry as I don’t play AoS, but I wonde if they would actually fit in any of the 6 warbands

Its probably possible, especially with the right gaming group

This is one of the first Warhammer Fantasy based things that has intrigued me (not the game, but the faction/models). Perfectly dark/Chaos-esque without being overdone and covered in spindly impossible bits. They would be a friggin' sublime Pitfighters warband for Mordheim as well.

I reckon the 9 non-chaos factions rule are just copy paste from AoS warscrolls with the ever-slightly twitst.

I hear that. My group wouldn’t mind I’m sure, but I’d also like them to at least roughly fit weapon wise etc, so I’m hoping..

Me too.
Though the game too, I’d been intrigued but not enough to start it or play etc (and just lack of time..)
But this, I’d like to give it a try. Especially if it’s like any other war and skirmish games from the past.
(Anyone ever play Legends of the High Seas/Old West that GW did? But those, Necro/Mord, even Blood Bowl etc, I like building people up in a narrative..)

I was thinking a bit like Kill Team, they might just take one/two kits and put those rules there..

Vampires are part of the Legions of Nagash now. The winged skull is either LoN or Flesh Eater Courts the image plastictrees posted suggests its the latter.
