Is the Ossiarch Bonereapers a faction that had been locked away during an earlier age or recently created? If they are recently created it is a bit odd with all the talk about having destroyed empires which there are hardly any of in the due to the age of chaos.


They told me i was crazy, that i could not win with an army list like that. 2000 points later i found out that they were right

My impression is that they were made, then hidden/locked away. That or they've "always been but never revealed". Which can somewhat happen in games when a new army appears on the tabletop.

Don't forget that Katacross in one of the videos speaks of how he is now free to lead the legion his master has been building. So the Reapers likely functioned for a long while but lacked a proper leader to make them a viable offensive weapon that Nagash was willing to unleash upon all the realms.

Their leader was freed from a stormvault during the forbidden power storyline.

At a guess: they used to be a big deal, Sigmar locked up their mortarch after he and Nagash started having trouble. Wich meant our friendly ossiarchs stayed hidden and mostly unused between the battle of the Buring skies and now.

Do we actually know if what was released was this mortarch? The description of that creature was very different from the model.

Agreed. Though I think the Age of Myth was several thousand years, not tens or hundreds of thousands. And there are big advantages to a vague timeline when managing a setting like this across multiple games, novels, authors, etc.

Sometimes they have a couple of articles if there’s stuff for multiple systems, and this is up about half an hour early. I’m not giving up hope quite yet!

But at the same time its hard to weave a story with key characters if the readers have no concept how they relate to each other.

Personally I think we'll see a hazy period until a few hundred years of AoS have passed and then we'll see thing settle down around a tighter narrative.

One big weakness is if GW focsues on stormcast, who are essentially immortal, then many mortal stories and heroes become hard to link into such a narrative.

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.

Time to guess the price people!!! , 200US$? 230? 250? 300??????


Also GW unboxing videos are always terrible, instead of showing the sprue, they show Peachy's hand instead, yeah he's married, very cool.

If anyone in the UK wants more Ogors I'm now open to trading the ogor half of my Feast of Bones for the Bonereaper half!



That is a VERY unexpected release, though it ties right into feast of bones; but still very surprising to say the least. Makes me think Reapers will be drawn out longer than two weeks. Also surprised to not see almost any of the big models like the leader or trebuchet on show.

Big model belong to big 115+USD kit like *cough* Black Coach, it'll be too value to include them in this 200$ box.

Why are there only two leadbelchers?
The video shows three and the regular boxset has 4

Also, whats with all the sigmarite armor on the ogor terrain? They're supposed to vanish after they die. Helmets are one thing, whole suits of armor are another

There's actually multiple stories of how magical powers can stop Sigmar returning his stormcast and their armour. It wouldn't surprise me if Ogors mastered some of it since they basically feed from their kills and Stormcast would otherwise be pretty poor fighting to have nothing left on the battlefield after. Though its also likely a rarity to achieve hence how utterly powerful that leader is to have felled and magically bound/blocked a stormcast returning to sigmar.

I rehashed the Ogor/Bonemen box rumor a few months ago and guess whoever the original rumor monger was, they were correct about this.

I think this is going to be expensive, $230, like the Eldar box. These aren't snap-fits or older models with a new character.

Might pick up a box which will allow me to paint the bonemen until the rest are released. As to the Ogors they are pretty cool too.

Those Bonereaper dice are truly abysmal. Not just impractical (surprisingly enough), but simply ugly too - a style mostly reminiscent children's drawings. In contrast, their terrain looks pretty great (painting on the skeletons looks a bit off though, very, well, plastic looking).

Just had a sobering thought that put a dampener on my hype. There inclusion in this box probably means that the Tyrant and coffin guy are not going to see a solo release for quite a while

Oh I like them... Think I'll use them with my Pirates of the Carribean Deadmen's Dice game. Shame my Salamaders didn't get dice too.

Anyone notice that the few recent AOS releases haven't had endless spells? Think it's something GW is ending?

Right behind you.

Nope, because we know there's Endless Spells for the Bonereapers.

Cities of Sigmar and Orruk Warclans didn't get them for fluff reasons.

The manifest for shipping rumour shows that Reapers are getting Endless Spells. I think its more that, for some reason, both Orruks and Cities just got left out. Cities I can see but orruks was a surprise. Might be that whatever caused the order delay caused GW to change suppliers or pause further orders for a time and that wound up to be their content.

I'd be shocked if GW was stopping considering that both terrain and spells are basically auto-buys for all users of a faction.

Right. That's it.

I am officially sick of these box sets.

I mean, they're a nice deal.. but I am just absolutely done with the 1 year delay on these models release.

Its pretty much the same thing as having console exclusive content at this point, so I wouldn't could on it going away anytime soon, much as it pains me to say it. Lets just hope it is a shorter release time than the characters from Looncurse seem to be having.

Never mind Looncurse, the Flesh eater and Skaven characters from the box before that are still waiting to be released.

The delay is random. Some sets release stuff REALLY fast; others its about a year. I can't see GW releasing the Bonereaper core infantry in a years time. They even say in the article that they will be coming soon.

It's an odd way to release them I agree, one would think they'd have wanted more individual sets up front to get reaper players buying fast; but I can't be opposed to this totally. I'ts at least made my pre-order a lot simpler to work out!

Boxed set + Battletome + possibly dice and terrain (depends on prices really). DONE
Then I just have to find an ogor player who got the boxed set and swap their reapers for my ogors.

Gives me:
20 troops
6 elite stalkers
4 morghasts (added to the 4 I've got already that's 8 so likely ample room to build both versions)
2 leaders.

Nah, only the Primaris side have appeared.
The Master of Possession is only found in that set (and the start collecting set released in a few months). What's worse is the Venomcrawler, greater possessed, and oblits are also exclusive to those sets and they're snapfit
