The Bone reaper stuff looks mighty tempting. The large skeleton statue looks amazing and it'll probably be that and the stalkers for me, somewhere down the line.

Its great to see two "Coming Soon...Next Week" articles on the same sunday. So for those getting this lot next week, have a blast!

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.


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.


How long for the Tyrant though...? When there isn't a decent Tyrant model already available.

I really do like the box sets, and think they are a BRILLIANT idea.

I just hate how models are placed at ransom in them. Disgusting behavior.

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


Shows how long thats been, I'd completely forgotten they even existed, yet the Shadowspear characters all mysteriously appear a few months later... Maybe AOS heroes should wear Power Armour from now on?

Nah, only the Primaris side have appeared.

Nope, only the two that had individual sprues have appeared. Lieutenant is still 'exclusive' to the box for now.

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

They are most definitely not snapfits. They're simplified builds certainly, but they do require glue to actually be anything approaching playable.


Worth mentioning that this is the timeframes for everything(date is when the preorder started):
There's been 4 battleboxes for Age of Sigmar:
Blight War(August 26th 2017)
Carrion Empire(February 9th, 2019)
Looncurse(May 4th, 2019)
and now this "Feast of Bones"[October 26th, 2019]

A 'dual' set for AoS and 40k was Wrath and Rapture(December 15th, 2018)

40k has had 5 sets, counting Blood of the Phoenix:
Forgebane(March 17th, 2018)
Tooth and Claw(August 18th, 2018)
Wake the Dead(September 29th, 2018)
Shadowspear(March 9th, 2019)
Blood of the Phoenix(October 12th, 2019)

So all told, that's 10 of these battleboxes...with only half(going chronologically: Blight War, Forgebane, Tooth and Claw, Wake the Dead, Wrath and Rapture) fully having all the individual items released and with that noted, it took until August 17th for Wake the Dead's Lieutenant model to release...and he just happened to release alongside of the only two Marine characters(Phobos Captain and Librarian) from Shadowspear that had their own individual sprues alongside of an actual Codex release having gone up for preorder the week prior(August 10th).

It's worth noting, however, that Age of Sigmar has quite a few Start Collecting sets(Notably: Flesh-Eater Courts and Sylvaneth) that are fairly old at this point in terms of the contents making them potential candidates for 'refreshers' with these missing items. Especially as Skaven and Gloomspite Gitz flatout don't have SCs...and GW seems to drop SC sets in January/February.

I find it both amusing and somehow reassuring that even the bods at Games Workshop HQ, in their promotional un-boxing video, refer to the ogres as actual... ogres, still and not flippin' Ogors

Nice looking set, anybody know of any third party headswaps that would fit the ogres? I love the armoured looking ones as seen on the chariot and new tyrant but the bare heads look naff and I'm positive there aren't enough armoured ones in the set to kit them all out. First world gripes aside, pretty solid. Wish they'd just reprint Looncurse though!

How are you thinking "Ogors" gets pronounced?

Ray Dranfield posted up about the Bonereaper terrain, apparently he was expecting it to have been shown off at Nova so we're definitely a few months behind right now.

Best thing about GW ogres is the fact that their parts are totally compatible with each other.
The leadbelcher parts totally fit the bulls.

OgORs
OgERs

There is a difference, though there might be some variation on accent. That said its words so similar that most people won't care which one you use and will know what you mean.

It's not as bad as when you've got orruks for orks which are very different words and yet either one people know what you mean.

Now Aelf and elf I'm less sure on if you say the a as an ae sound or if its a silent a. Plus accent likely makes it hard again.



That said for all Gw's creative new names for things, you say the old name and most people (even newbies) know what you mean

I thought the name "ogors" was dumb until I realized it's a continuation of other abhuman things in the setting; ungors, gors, bullgors, ogors, etc. Now I'm ok with it. Would still prefer they didn't sooper copyrite everything but it's not nearly as bad as it could be.

Anyways, wow those terrain pieces! I love them both. The cauldron I want even just to use for RPGs; it would be a perfect centerpiece for an encounter. And the nexus is just really dam cool. New tyrant is like someone made a mini out of Josh Reynolds artwork in a very good way. Basic ogor infantry has aged reasonably well and the parts are high interchangeable. Very hyped for this box set.

The ogre terrain piece is very nice. Works well just as general terrain or an RPG piece.

Hope they do more models based on that tyrant design as well.

Also, Leadbelcher sprue comes with four cannons do you can build 4 Leadbelchers from this box.

So I got my copy. It’s not quite as bad as people are making it out to be. For starters, the “hero” battalion is erased if you use this host. Secondly, you lose access to all warlord traits and Host-specific artifacts in the book. So you give up all warlord and artifacts AND access to a battalion to gain double depravity; but (if memory serves from quick glance) only get double DP based on wounds you cause. I think it adds more options and variety, but doesn’t break the book any further. Now, the 110pt soul grinder battalion that gives +1 to hits AND saves is a pleasant addition!!

Definite case of “chicken little and the falling sky”. If it just said “use any WL traits and artifacts and gain this ability...sure. Broken. But with how much you have to give up for it? Nah, not a given “go to”.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

Unfamiliar with AOS, is the Khorne symbol on the cauldron because ogre now worship khorne, or is is just them scavenging enemy metal?
Also isn't having a khorne rune going to make the cook be extra angry when cooking and other potentially nasty side effects?

You can still take realm artifacts, which people were doing anyways. And if Syl'Esske is the general no command trait anyways. And it doubles from both damage dealt and taken.

The boneshapers rules look pretty good 4+ armor wizard that either heals 3 wound or brings back 3 guys a turn. His spell isn't to bad either.

Just scavenged bits. Though, it would be fun to have an ogor army led by a Tyrant slowly corrupted by Khorne. Maybe he found a nice helmet thats slowly driving him into a frenzy or something.

UGGGG Come on GW I just got Cities of Sigmar! I've been waiting for Ogors and Free Peoples since the game launched and now you release them ALL AT ONCE?!

Well It's a good thing I have an Ogor Army mostly done. All I really need it the Tyrant to add to my collection. So I will probably end up waiting to get it.

Being a spell it doesn't have to be made of bones. Ravens/corvids are often depicted as carrion birds picking off the flesh from the bones. There's even one flapping around as an optional part on the huge harvester model (its pulling at a bone whilst one of the smaller bone arms is pulling back).

I suspect its playing on a reaping aspect of the faction so having a crow fits very well with the overall theme - esp as the lore of the realms means they can't really have the Death of Rats appear with the Ossiarchs Just make sure you've got some eyeballs for the crows.

GW has added it to the update page for reapers now - and there's a large picture. It is indeed a bonebird!
