Hmm, gridiron is IMO an obvious Blood Bowl reference. But glory? Seems fairly generic. Maybe Warcry?

Gridiron is bloodbowl, yes?

I hope they give us a clue about all the secret images with "undead" aesthetics

And blood bowl? The following team has been seen, and the new edition box too ... a bit shabby if they show it again as a novelty, since I don't think they show anything different.

Yeah, we're closing in on when Direchasm is supposed to hit for Underworlds so Glory likely refers to that as we saw silhouettes but no models outside the Chameleon Skink.

When is Spiel Essen supposed to be? Also the 17th? Previous years have had GW doing a showcase for that too and it's been almost exclusively Specialist Games fare.

Direchasm could be a December release, since there's also an omnibus coming out (cover shows the Slaaneshi champion and a Lumineth (Water Temple ?) :

Spiel Essen was originally planned for October 22nd to 25th

There was also a roadmap that had December specifically called out for the start of season 4.

Definitely looks like River Temple there.

Glory makes me think Underworlds. Since Glory is the "point" system.
But it could be warcry

Gridiron obviously refers to BloodBowl but I wonder what they are going to reveal. I don't think that BB2020 was supposed to leak as early as it did but I think they need to show something we haven't seen before. A new team seems unlikely because it won't be featured in the new rulebook, but perhaps another plastic Big Guy (Minotaur?) or one or two new (old) Star Players in plastic?

I would assume Glory refers to Warhammer: Underworlds. I wouldn't be surprised to see one or both Warbands from the Season 4 starter set to be revealed properly.

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.

Based on the cover of the book is it safe to say we'll get Lumineth and Hedonites?
Do we know what's in the new starter? I liked Beastgrave's just for the fact that they went with some pretty unique teams.

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

Lumineth and Hedonites. They showed us the box art cover in the Shadow, Iron, Broken Realms preview.

Yes, but we knew who would be in the boxed set from the Warhammer Preview Online: Shadow, Iron & Broken Realms article on Warhammer Community in August:

The Direchasm boxed set contains everything you need to play, including two brand-new warbands that represent the darkness and light of the Mortal Realms. The Slaaneshi Hedonites of the Dread Pageant entered the living mountain in search of Slaanesh and now revel in the sensation of endless slaughter, death, and rebirth. Ranged against them are Myari’s Purifiers, a band of Lumineth Realm-lords pledged to calm the mountain’s growing wrath.

I bet some more Warcry stuff seems like a good bet. That would fit the Glory part quite well.

I hope we get to see all of the lizardman team for underworlds, and some previews (if not reveals) of what is to come for warcry.

But at this point I just want an actual release of anything for warcry.

I wouldn't mind seeing some more stuff on Blood Bowl, Underworlds, and Warcry. I've got hardcore 40k fatigue at this point from seeing virtually nothing but that for 6 weeks.

Same here.
Especially since 40k has essentially been marines vs 'crons since 9th was released.
Fresh air needed.

Either an extended print run of BSF or a new Warhammer Quest game. A solo-coop game makes sense in these times where local shops are not hosting games.

Kill Team has mostly been ignored this year so not expecting anything there. A cough and a whisper for a 2020 annual would at least be something.

40K players are patiently waiting for their own favourite codex while GW bangs on about Necrons and Marines. I guess we'll come back in late 2021 for when they've settled down...

40k we know codexes for this year and that xenos is first next year. Gw won't give out info much further than that.

I don't expect much from this preview. The new season of Blood Bowl has already been leaked in full a few months ago, and I suspect they will keep being superficial for that live stream (saying "watch out for Warhammer Community for details about the new rules !"). I don't think they will reveal many games as well.

The second is certainly Underworld with them showing the full starter box, 'cause Warcry was already previewed before anyway.

It's obviously Blood Bowl and Underworlds, featuring Warcry.

If it is a Specialist Games, er... special then I'd wish for a Titanticus sneak peek (and a bit more that the Volcano Cannon Warbringer) and a look at the next wave of Aeronautica Imperialis (Eldar v ????).

Wishful thinking, of course.

Come to think of it, they have just announced another Titanicus book so if there is to be anything with it, now would be the time.

And yes, Eldar in Aeronautica would be fantastic. Hemlocks are very nice looking models, but if not the void ravens are quite sexy too.

I might be mistaken but did Citadel actually make any Chaos archers after the ancient plastics in the MB Battle Masters game? Didn't really notice the one on the new Underworlds box art before, nice throwback, even including the mohawk. Preview pic of the mini suggests a different stance tho.

Completely unsure on the timing, but they did do Chaos Thug Archers in the old, olden days.

And we’ve at least one in Underworlds.
