I am actually looking forward to seeing what the community does with the models, I think if someone does go and do some head swaps with some proper skulls (or something similar like a Wayne England style skull) this would be a pretty cool looking army.


I'm planning on trying to make the skulls more construct than real skull, aiming to turn the jaw into more of a helmet grill like the photo shop from earlier in this thread, at least on the infantry, I may keep the cavalry and heroes as more 'individual' than the foot sloggers.


You could also just cover up the face completely, make them look like faceless golems made of bone.
That would fix at least one of the problems.

There. We can now move back to talking about actual topical matters.

Do we think Bonereapers will be a month long release when they start dropping, or a big ol' blob? Think we'll see the Mawtribes soon?


Except I don't think I said I liked the old hats, just they were better than this?
Its not just the helmet that looks bad either, there's also the shields, the faces, the goatee, the armor design, it doesn't look great. Fantasy had bad models too, but at least entire armies didn't look like pumbagores.
Or an entire army of that one Sister of Battle with the open mouth.

For the record, I also hate the crests on Lychguard heads, as it clashed with the rest of the model. It was just there, it didn't really do anything for it. And I do like necrons.

Maybe chrome them up? Tech them up and use them as Necron replacements? Or just use Necron heads?

Paint the faces stark white like a Noh mask? I think when we start to see color schemes in the book that might help further inspire people as well.

Nice Stormcast! Also follows with my personal aesthetic of no helmets (a gimmick of my skirmish force). Where is this figure from?

Cool, but also has to be exclusive of some sort, since normal questors come with a shield and sword.

I don't know, the "how to pick him up" part of the sentence seems ominous. If he were a full release, you wouldn't need info how to pick him up. Either Direct Only (best option) or some stupid convention/store's fifteenth anniversary release (worst option).

That does sound more like he's going to be a regular release. Which kinda raises the question of what else is coming alongside him. Its not beyond GW to drop a random Stormcast hero on the shelves(IIRC that's what happened with the Lord Veritant and Gavriel Sureheart). But there usually part of something bigger like a vs box, campaign book, boxed game or army expansion. But being individually packed would seem to rule out the boxed options.

It could be something as simple as an ETB wave for Nighthaunt and Stormcast, with a Guardian of Souls for NH and this guy for Stormcast.

Looks like some good stuff coming Hedonites way in the WD. Interesting it says 4 new Warscroll battalions.

Except I think he's standing on THREE. Only the rear left leg is on the ground. All the others are on rocks.

I'm not a Death guy, but I really like the Bonereapers. I may not have enough for an AoS army of them, but they'll definitely be an enemy in a Pathfinder campaign.

I'm thinking Event Only, in the same way as that Primaris dude.

You’ll be able to order the first of the Ossiarch Bonereapers from October...


Edit: which basically means pre-order on 26th, because this week is already previewed.

Yes. It's at the end of the video:

I don't hate him. He doesn't have a nose and isn't ridiculous looking (the skellie himself, not the rest of the model.) I'd like it better without the additional limbs and legs on the walker, but he's not bad. I'm not sold on the crossed legs, but I'm not against them either.

Not really a fan, but I do like the bone dreadnought. Also, really loving that catapult. I'm not into collecting anything from Death, but that may be needed for the shelf.

I'm more excited by them talking about the trebuchet in the plural sense because its one of the models I really hope we can run more than one of at a time in a sensible army.

Agreed, I would have preferred had it been 4 spider-like legs that ended in hands, to tie it to the front end of the trebuchet more. May try to do this, so long as the rules fit with how I want my army to work.

I have no interest for these models. I hope it will be different with the future armies.
