I’m not a fan of models with sculpted ruins like that personally. Also specific enemy casualties. They can interfere with your own basing scheme. Rocks are less of an issue since you can find rocks most everywhere.

From the Warhammer Online Preview:

The Lumineth take their strength from the very land of Hysh, and these aelves follow the aspect of the mountain, from which they inherit part of their might and resilience. That incredible centrepiece model is Avalenor, the Stoneheart King. He is the eldest and the wisest of the mountain spirits that march to war with the aelves. Take a closer look at the model that is redefining what it means to be part of an aelf army.






Part mystical creature, part mountain, and it can go toe-to-toe with a Bloodthirster – what more could you ask for? And, of course, we couldn’t have a Warhammer Preview without some actual war hammers. Elves have been part of Warhammer for ages, but they haven’t ever held hammers – until now!




These are the Alarith Stoneguard, the elite infantry of the Lumineth Realm-lords. They fight like immovable objects, wielding magical hammers that crush enemy skulls with a single blow. We hope that you’re ready to start seeing all of your problems as nails.

Well that solves a bunch of rumour engine posts.

And of course the spirit of a mountain is a giant goat.

Right behind you.

It's not quite that simple from how Phil Kelly explained it...

It sounded like the bodies are 'created' by the Lumineth and the masks allow for the spirits of the mountains to inhabit them.

I wish I had taken notes because it was frigging fascinating to hear.

Cow-rock-spirt and elfs with cow helmets. I did not expect that...an dodged a bullet, because I can't think of anything more absurd than cow-elves.
The cow spirit is actually a good model, if silly, the cow hats are inexcusable.

Those cow mountain spirits are awesome. No lie...I’d love to have those things leading the two types of Phoenixes and Sky-Cutter chariots. And the Spirit of Aenarion model they showed off before that was the best Elven model ever made. Absurd? Possibly. The highest fantasy version of elves ever? Definitely. Way better than classic old high elves that looked more like they escaped from LotR and engaged in copulation with monkeys to gain their hands.

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

I never knew I wanted giant, mountain-cows wielding big mallets.


But I have to agree that those cow hats are bit more on the silly side. And kinda boring looking for an elite unit.

Mountain cow looks like a bad Wraith Knight kitbash.

And the Elves with croquet mallets

I can't think of a much less Elven weapon than a hammer.

From the way they were explaining it, they don’t swing them wildly like others.
Just used for precision strikes to kill efficiently.
Basically swordmasters but with hammers.

I really love that model - second favourite after the sphinx!

I can also see it being really popular for Slaanesh and Eldar players as conversion material. Heck barring the rock on its shoulders its basically all the way there for a keeper already - throw some claws and stuff on and you could have a great "Armoured" looking Keeper!


I also really like the Scions of the Flame models - I wasn't sure I would from the little previews we'd had and art, but I really do like them. They also sound interesting as for AoS they could be a neat skirmishing/medium ranged unit to throw in at a very cheap price in points.


Overall good reveals! Also in the Luminoth army picture there's another mage hiding in the units!

Yep, need a giant cow man.

I wonder if this means we're just getting Earth Elves though. Four lots of a mage, a special unit and a big monster to cover all the elements (plus all the non-elemental stuff) seems like too big of a release.

There was a rumor that is an Endless Spell. It's sadly too blurry to spot the runes on it in any real measure.

From the rumours she is indeed a spell sadly as it’s meant to look like a solid model.

I still don’t think the ‘rumours’ actually meant she’s an endless spell. It was Atia on the War of Sigmar blog saying ‘I am afraid they are endless spells’ which to me could also just read ‘I’m worried they’re just endless spells’. Unless it’s come from somewhere else as well. I don’t know how much insight Atia even has these days, it’s been a long time since I saw anything actually new from there.

It really just looks like a model, not an endless spell.

Atia has been spot on with stuff for a long time.
To me, one of the few trusted sources.

If that were the case then the wording would be different.
“I’m afraid they are endless spells” - saying they are.
“I’m afraid they might be endless spells” - unsure.

Atia also only tends to post what’s known, rather than ideas or thoughts.

I’d more than happily put money on it being a spell.



Edit: how it looks isn’t really important though in terms of guessing what it is.
Loads of spells look like models or units but aren’t.

Hashut-worshipping elves using hammers? Definitely in line for allies of my Chaos Dwarves.

Everything about those guys shows devotion to the great Taurus-God! All they need is a proper paint scheme in red, black and gold. Maybe some purple for the runes.

So apart from the spells or that mage and maybe a terrain piece do we think this is currently it for the range?

They’ve set it up nicely as we seem to have stone spirits this time round so maybe they will expand the range with other units tied to other elements and maybe Tyrion next time they get an update

What Lady Atia said on War of Sigmar was "These look cool but i am afraid these last 3 are in fact Endless spells.". The use of "... in fact..." clinches it for me that she knows and that it is a fact that these are Endless Spells.

I really don't see how the Bull and hammer is any more absurd for Elves than battleaxes and Celestial Lions from the Old World.

I think some people are just salty that they didn't just recreate the old range of High elves but in the Endless Realms. Other than my sadness of the constant need for each army to have a giant centerpiece model, and my severe dislike of the giant helmet-toppers I think they look cool.

They give me a western asian feel, kind of Indian/Tibet. When was the last time you saw Elves tied to an aesthetic of mountains and Bonsai trees?
