Ah ok, I 2s reading you reply as in regard to these going away rather than those options. I’m not too up on which means which when it comes to Temp out and No Longer Available.
To be honest I haven’t had need to buy any new kits in almost two years, just been noticing the LCTB stuff when it went etc

Having owned all three kits, the Morgul Knights will unfortunately look frickin' tiny next to any other units. The current Blood Knights dwarf them.

To be fair, Blood Knights were always weird. They were hero cavalry units and priced accordingly.

Seeing they are 25mm true scale rather than heroic 28mm...no surprise. They are completely different scale.

Or possibly just slightly further away.*
Either is an exploitable tactical opportunity though.

Not sure if they're easy to find (likely cheaper than any actual Blood Knights ever were though...), but the first incarnation of the Morgul Knights, in metal, would be a bit more in-scale with Warhammer figures. They (and the dismounts, Black Númenóreans, which are still sold) were pretty badly out of scale with the rest of the range, in other words closer to what you'd be looking for. The plastics look much better, but they will indeed be pretty tiny, which may not be what you'd want for your most impressive unit.
Although looking at the posts above, it may also be just what you want. There's something to consider for the future...

Yeah but then you'd have to buy something from Mantic, and if you start down that road soon you'll be buying Produs products and no one wants that!

Unfortunately for you they are sold out in Australia right now, probably due to being such a bargain!

I've always used the alternate build from the Doomfire Warlock kit to make Blood Knights. The Dark Riders aren't quite as heavily armored but they look the part to me.

From Warhammer Community:

Over the next few months, we’ll be bringing you themed weeks that explore different sides of the war for the Stormvaults, providing a wider perspective on the conflict and offering more hints as to how the future may unfold. Every Forbidden Power week will bring with it new fiction exploring new corners of the Mortal Realms, plus a battleplan allowing you to recreate conflicts therein. Of course, you can use these rules to inspire your own campaigns and alongside the Stormvault campaign system in Forbidden Power. If, for example, you want to see how, say, Ogors might have fared in the siege of Lake Lethis, then go for it!

It helps do what they are saying; new fiction exploring different corners of the realm. Pretty direct relationship.

Warhammer Weekly has some rumours on the new Death Faction and the Ogors. Take with whatever amount of salt for now but from what I've seen before they are usually in the know.

Likely to be released at the same time possibly with a new set? Late October release

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjN83SE-bLw

Rumours for new Death Faction

- "Mongolian" type aesthetic or at least non European in design
- Skeleton based - new archers and mounted archers kit(s)
- Skeleton Ogor unit

Ogor Rumours

- Resin minis removed
- New Butcher mini - no Cauldron
- Cauldron is now a terrain piece
- Endless spells, Maw, Everwinter Storm, "Floating Meat" spell
- Combined tome with BCR.

Tzeentch is the final battletome this year.

Slaves to Darkness now next year.

Hm, if they were going that far east they missed a chance to do terracotta warriors instead :(

Sounds nice tho. Especially Tzeentch coming this year.

I'm very interested in those Mongolian skeletons....

I've been wanting to give AoS the proper college try, but it's tough for me to find a faction I really like. I do enjoy the undead...so this will be worth waiting for for me!

If I've got a trade you're interested in but you don't have anything on my wanted list, just shoot me a PM and ask! I'm easily distracted!

I would expect there being new Deathrattle/Skeletons models in archery flavor with upcoming Death book. But I don't know about it being eastern/mongolian type as I could imagine those new archery models being compatible with current deathrattle models (in style atleast).

sad to see my long awaited darkoaths getting pushed to next year, but Mongolian or.otherwise east asian themed undead might finally convince to get some undead for RPG purposes (I'd sooner expect Chinese themed, and casual onlookers to not really know any better, kind.of like whole Idoneth debacle)

I'd be tempted if they went for some skelies along those lines.

GW never really went too deep into Eastern styles for their figures, save for the odd ninja or two back in the day.

Sad if that's the case with the Darkoath. At least we've got WarCry to give us something new to mess with for the time being.

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

Since there's a couple of Fighter Runemarks we haven't seen used yet for Warcry (i.e., Behemoth and Mount) and two more warbands, it makes sense to hold off on a Darkoath battletome if these new units are coming relatively soon so they can be in it.
