Well AOS borrowed heavily from the warmachine design ethos when they aborted rank and flank battle from the design, so this is not surprising.

Current thinking is that these skeletons are an addition to the current range, right? Can't help but feel worried they might start replacing the more traditional current range with new designs, but they did release the Shadespire team matching the old gothic skeletons for AoS at least. In addition, the new units seem to cover things not in the existing range - artillery, monstrous (or at least larger) cavalry and new skellie characters.

I've been thinking the same. This could be the beginning of the end for generic death models, e.g. skellies, zombies, etc. It wouldn't be immediate but I was thinking along the lines of what they're doing to traditional space marines.

I'd expect the zombie and Dire Wolf kits to go away/be replaced sooner than later, as both are pretty dated by now. The Black Knight/Hexwraith kit is another I don't expect to see last more than a few years, especially with the new cavalry unit coming along with this faction.

Relentless. Disciplined. Deathless. These are the Ossiarch Bonereapers – the culmination of centuries of planning by Nagash and the harbingers of his dark reign. Where the Legions of Nagash are the foot soldiers of Death and the Nighthaunt are the shock troops, the Ossiarch Bonereapers are the vanguard of a new order.

These are not risen warriors or malignant spirits – they are bespoke war-constructs forged from harvested bone and gifted the soul animus of great warriors and heroes. Alone, they have hundreds of lifetimes of experience and brutal physical prowess. Unified, they are nigh unstoppable, directed into battle by Katakros, Mortarch of the Necropolis – perhaps the greatest military strategist (living, or dead) the Mortal Realms have ever known.






The backbone (see what we did there?) of the Ossiarch Bonereapers are the legions of Mortek Guard and spearheads of Kavalos Deathriders. Each contains the souls of dozens of mortal warriors, and each is a brutally effective combatant, fighting with utter discipline even in the most chaotic battles. These warriors aren’t automata – they have personalities befitting their roles in Nagash’s dark regime. While Mortek Guard are forthright and dutiful, Kavalos Deathriders are possessed of towering arrogance, as suits their role as heralds of the Great Necromancer.




The more elite echelons of the Ossiarch Bonereapers are made up of a variety of bizarre and deadly construct-warriors created by the twisted, magical bio-engineers of the Mortisian priesthood. Necropolis Stalkers, for instance, are infused with the souls of four legendary warriors apiece, giving them the ability to shift personalities mid-battle in order to change their fighting style.




In addition to these warriors, the Ossiarch Bonereapers also make vast and horrific war machines. The Mortek Crawler is a semi-sentient siege engine that devastates fortifications and formations alike with deadly hails of magical ammunition.




Leading the Ossiarch Bonereapers is none other than Katakros himself. This is no embittered spirit, arch-schemer of the world-that-was or devoted sycophant, but a terrifying new paragon of unlife itself. Granted a new existence in a body of ensorcelled bone, Orpheon Katakros is Nagash’s plan for the Mortal Realms made manifest – efficient, remorseless and instilled with a chilling disregard for life. He’s a real chip off the ol’ Black Pyramid




Katakros is a fascinating character. Once a general of the Mortal Realms, he is a master of strategy, tactics and diplomacy with aeons of conquest under his belt. Even if you’re not going all-in on the new Ossiarch Bonereapers, this stunning miniature will be a pleasure to paint and an eye-catching display piece for your collection in its own right.

Those are models? They look like screenshots of cartoon characters.

Also, bones with bone armor is not an exciting thing to paint. Its just sort of white-ish.


And... they went full He-Man. Hello, Many-Face(s).


That character base... no... why? Why are they hauling giant steps around the battlefield?

The mortarch and bone golems are great. Not too keen on the rank and file - they're pretty static for AoS models.

I had hoped for Tomb Kings redux. I had hoped the Mortrarch was Settra or something.

Instead...we got...well...this.

I like the basic troops and four armed ones, the rest is pretty so so. A bit over the top I guess. I imagine the morghast archai will fit right in with this army though.

I like all the guys hanging out on the leader's base. I don't want to put any of them on that base at all.

They need to be doing their thang out on the battlefield rather than just chilling with the boss.

Samurai dude is pretty stylin' after all.

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

Man I want the Samurai guy hanging out with the Mortarch on his own base with his own rules. Maybe count as wight lord or whatever other smaller CC hero they get?

I hope the Mortarch and all his retinue can be build up separately each one with their own rules.

The diorama is cool but for to use it in battle.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

They're not Asian styled. That much is pretty clear now that we can actually see them.

They're not Gothic, which is a welcome change. That was getting tiresome. But they're not Asian-influenced.

Er what? The four-armed constructs with multiple faces? The helms of the riders? The mortarch himself and the attendants? The Mongolian, Samurai and perhaps hindu influences are pretty clear to me. Hell the bloody accent of the Mortarch.

To each their own. The more recent TK kits like Sphinx and Necropolis Knights had much more fantasy appeal. These are very mundane. If they appeal to you, happy collecting I guess.
