So my fellow dakkanauts and CWE fans around the world it appears, we have been heard.
It has been confirmed:

Along with the new psychic awakening campaign stuff CWE will be getting howling banshees in plastic!!
Yes... it really has been confirmed! Rejoice!!!!



https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/08/29/breaking-news-sisters-psykers-and-skeletonsgw-homepage-post-4/

(Yeah there will be some sort of campaign book malrkay and yaddaa yadda supplements regarding psychic awekning nobody really cares about)

So, some of our fears appear to have been alleviated, the howling banshees does not appear to have been primarised/ynarrified in any way shape or form but rather is a full on plastic revamp. I don't know about any other CWE fans but having been searching ebay for good metals for all of our aspects I can now stop looking for banshees and take my time waiting for these to be released and get on with the rest of my army. Makes me a very happy happy table topper. I know I will be picking up at least a couple boxes (lets hope they don't come in a wake the dead type box..)

So question is, do we just get the banshees? And have to make do with that for the next XX years?
Will we see some new phoenix lords??
Are there going to resculpt PLs also??
What's the next aspects after the banshees likely to be done? (My money is on scorpions as they are very iconic)

I don't know man. I actually really like the Shrike.
Think he looks like a bad man out of some sort of generic sci fi Robocop flick though...
I think with a beaky helmet head swap he will look dope.. maybe ???

It does seem to have propelled Primarines into a new level of general sci fi aesthetic a tad but lets hope hes not setting the trend..(unless its your shtick...)

More importantly... I can stop wasting time and money ebaying for good condition metal aspects for now. At least for banshees.

Now to the divinations:
why banshees? it would be more reasonable to do Spiders, Spears i.e oldest aspects. I can just guess, ie maybe because they're a more canonical, face of eldar aspects; or because they need better rules more.
Phoenix Lords? At that point I am not sure anymore. Can get models, can stay Finecast, can even go into Legends.
How many more? My guess every faction will get some, so it can be just Banshees, or maybe them and 1 more aspect or something.

But then trailer has a hint on Eldar in the very end, so there is hope for more.

Yah, I’m going to need a box of those ladies. Time to put my money where my mouth is. Kept true to the classic look, doesn’t suck, must buy.

Hope the queen of the 80’s hair returns, rocking her old classic style, to lead the gals into the fray. If not, I have the old JZ in metal, but she’s a bit top heavy, so I wouldn’t mind a modern plastic. While the old sculpts held up well, I like what they can do these days when they put their minds to it.

Ohh you think they will get updated rules? Or just like some sort of specialist detachment/special rule from the campaign book?

More speculations:
I hope they don't just do banshees and say: "be happy we gave you a kit... don't say we never do anything for xenos" and then go onto doing primaris/IOM for the next 2 years..
It would make sense to go whole hog and update the rest of the aspects.. I think maybe have gone for banshees because of DOW 3?

Lets hope this is the tip of an iceberg for CWE and we can get our aspects finally and enjoy some releases.

You know, like, whatever. Even if they would update Aspects at ratio of 1 aspect/2 years I would still be alive the point when all the stuff finally gets updated. At least we know that Aspects don't just get replaced by some primaris ynnari or some gak.

I am very excited. I imagine this is going to hurt the wallet pretty hard. I don't own any banshees currently as I have been struggling to snag good bargains (not for lack of bidding and trying).
I imagine they will do a DA style kit box so 5 man unit for around £23. If that's the case Ima get me at least 4 of them bastads.

My biggest worry is they will force it into new oblits style into some sort of wake the dead box set...which you will not be able to get on its own.

To be fair, they can get some crazy long charges off and ignore overwatch. Sure, they might be a little meh, but they are not without uses.

Fair point, but shes arguably the most encountered Phoenix Lord, with a penchant for sticking her hairpiece into everything. If there's an Imperial / Craftworld alliance brewing, it makes sense that she'd be involved.

There are new rules incoming and point updates incoming. Marines got +1A, would make sense for fragile 13 ppm Banshees to get something too.

Also can shoot Alaitoc in the head and dump into space, while buffing every other Craftworld out there, especially Saim Hann, Iyanden & Biel Tan.

Sigh. Another Xeno release? Why do Games-Workshop hate the Imperium so much? When are we going to get some love eh? I'm done with Games-Workshop, etc. etc...

Ah, I'm kidding of course. I'm delighted that Aspect Warriors are getting a redo, and Banshees have always been my favorite Aspect, so it's a great place to start. I feel like it's a safe bet to presume that all aspects will be getting a makeover. The only question is, how long will it take? Do you think we'll see a huge multi-week release campaign or will they be drip fed, one-at-a-time over the next couple of years?

No I think it's just the soulstones everywhere making them look like they have the bubonic plague, and the shape of all shuriken weapons looks ridiculous to me.

Yeah the new Shrike has a useless pretty boy vibe. If I wanted that, I'd be a fan of Blood Angels.

Luckily I still have a useable Shrike stand-in. I'm just gonna glue a pistol to the base before I get the thing painted.

To be fair its a pretty ridiculous weapon. It catapults shurikens…
I think the stones are interesting. But some models just have soo many its a nightmare to paint. Theres one Guardian back piece that is literly covered in stones and is ridiculous.

Man It feels nice to have something to look forward to from GW.

The next aspect, if they do another, will be striking scorpions- those were the only aspects that got Kill Team rules.

I hope they do them all. Any other aspect could be done as a kill team box in order to get around the current lack of rules.

Along with the psychic awakening stuff, there are certainly going to be some model releases- we just don't know which factions will get them. The fact that the Inquisition is going to get attention strongly suggests some new models for them- it would be really hard to generate meaningful content without expanding the current range.

My money is on the scorpions also but mostly because they are the most iconic.. I'm surprised they didn't do the scorpions first if anything.
I have not considered kill team to be a huge driving factor in the decision making.

I do hope we get all of them. Im actually really psyched up!! Cant wait for these to drop.
So that's what it feels like to be a marine player and have new kits on the horizon... Interesting.

I am so happy for this!
I am curious to see wether other aspects have been updated as well, and if new ones have been implemented (not impossible if, as others suggested, the plastic aspects are dual kits. Not necessary tho, just nice in case).

Maybe you can head swap. I personally dislike other aspects of the armor that are very primaris like the ankles or the backpack, but assuming (unless I am mistaken) that you are ok with those...

Agree on Scorpions being a sure thing if another Aspect kit is coming. I personally hope these are dual kits, bu I doubt it.

Disagree on Shrike being a pretty boi. I get more of an Emo vibe, which is fitting for RG

My main concern, if that's warranted is that most Aspect Warriors suck ass right now - so it's an odd time to release them. I imagine they'll sell fine, but they've chosen one of the least-used units and I hope they don't use it to gauge interest. If a new Eldar book isn't released soon they'll have to at least put in a Swordwind style detachment in the new expansion with some rules aimed at Aspect Warriors.

Most Aspect Warriors have been as bad as marines (expensive, with one wound...die pointlessly to chaff). Howling Banshees have...two attacks. Ork Boy (half cost) can have 6-7. It's the same Space Marine dilemma of being an Elite in a horde/chaff game. Marines had some fixes...and then a new fancy book. A lot of the Aspects will need similar help to make them worth buying for the non-lore/non-grognard players.
