I did see where Forge World discontinued their Fimir models. Maybe we'll see plastic Formoroids replacing them in the (hopefully near) future?

I’d be both disappointed and relieved if it was giants instead of light aelves. It means I don’t have to spend money, but also means no light aelves.

But I’m sure that, if they look cool, I’ll be getting them as well. Because I have a problem.

As the meme says "why not both?" GW could certainly do a Giant focused model release/campaign and Light Aelves within a few months of each other.

I'm the exact opposite- we've had 3 different elf releases, and no order humans. I'd be delighted if we could take a year or two away from elves.

Well, that seems unlikely with the reimagined wood elf+animal hybrids already seen in Underworlds bound to make a larger appearance in the relatively near future. Then again, anybody wanting something like what the light aelves would be is as much served by any of the elvish releases so far, as somebody wanting order humans is served by stormcast.

From the text, it does imply the Hysh and giants are linked. Could be interesting, I've long liked the idea of the ancient Sky Titans as a force. Just wonder what scale they would be in - would they once again make the last giant look small by comparison?

Great, it's a Studio project, so it'll actually drain at least some resources from AoS development (I've no doubt 40k will be left alone) all for the sake of a project that failed once already and some nostalgia money from boomers.


The fact that people who express sentiments like that will be annoyed by them diverting resources from AoS is actually the best thing about this announcement.

Just wait until we're back in stores and clubs, with our actively supported game, luring away new players with superior not-Egypt and Proper Dwarfs rather than silly He-Man Bone Bois and Fyretoddlers


Can't agree more. While AOS got around it's rough start, WHFB was a much superior product (no stormcast for a start). Can't wait to see whre this will go

AoS-apocalypse? Give those Titans a run for their money!

If it's anything like the giants described in the Forbidden Power book? Oh hell yes, I'm down for that.

For those interested, they were basically Sigmarite clad giants that Sigmar gave shields, armor, and weapons in exchange for them helping him put what we now know as Katakros into the Lethisian Vault.


Sooo... titan sized Sigmarines? I can see why GW would want to make that for AoS.


really hope that's not the case. A giant army has potential. 3up sigmarine doesnt.

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.

Now there's a quote that really doesn't work without the context of the first part of the sentence.
-Somebody said they were hoping to see the hinted at "light aelves" released.
-Another responded they were tired of elven releases.
-I commented that the previous elves are as much use to somebody interested in the light elves, as somebody interested in normal humans will find their needs satisfied by stormcast - which is to say, probably not at all.

In short, we are entirely in agreement.

And on a semi-related note, I too look forward to seeing what they do with either the light elves, or indeed something resembling normal humans not in the service of Chaos.

I was the one who who said they were tired of elven releases, and while perhaps not your intent, I had taken your comment as one basically saying both elf and humans players should be made happy by focusing on related but different factions.

I appreciate your clarification!

I for one hope to see something other than humans, aealvaeas or dworfs.

More than that I'd like Destruction to be expanded beyond just savage barbarians. Give us something like smart ogres with magitech who rather than being hungry seek to power their machines with... I dunno... stuff... people, realmstone, magic, fabric of reality or something.

Play around with the notion of destroying stuff, after all greedy civilised people have been far more detrimental to the world that than stone age tribals. Maybe that would hit too close to home for GW.

Maybe it'll be a force of Giants from Shyish that will be like fielding Knight "armies" in 40k. Which is visually evocative, but financially a kidney punch.

Giant might not mean big model it might mean a big release of lots of small things. It might also be terrain or something like that instead of giant giant models.



Also I just finished building an Ossiarch Deathrider and want to note that I'm honestly amazed at whoever is doing the parting for models for GW. Almost every single join line is hidden! The only thing I would say is a bit sad is that they made the rider and mount as a single model (the riders groin is part of the saddle which means that the legs have to be part of the mount). That said if you wanted to modify it because you stick the legs on the groin area you can scrape the groin region of the rider off to put a different rider if you wanted.

From Warhammer Community:

There are some HUGE (some might say giant) plans for the Mortal Realms…

The 'huge plans' would cover a big release whereas 'giant' would tend to be in regards to what's being released. The Formoroid for Warcry would fit this description, and the Ogroids possibly could as well.

Eh its loose enough and its marketing hype language - never take it as gospel nor as accurate. A Giant Plan for the Mortal Realms could even be a story event like the Necroquake rather than a massive model.

A phrase like that should always be read as "There are some HUGE (some might say 'giant') plans for the Mortal Realms…" with extra emphasis and a on the word 'giant' meaning that the HUGE plans are plans for giants and not that the plans are redundantly both huge and giant.

Sky titans making a return?
They missed a trick there as they could have dropped those with Mawtribes in the set.

Generally speaking though, WHFB making a return isn’t always a bad thing.
They do need to keep an eye on their rules though.
For me it just got too much near the end, bloated was an understatement for the rules.

AoS was something I hated to begin with, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised with how it’s turned out so far.


There are some issues though.

WHFB ran heavily on characters - most of which are now gone (model wise)

Rank and file - models are designed freely now, so ranking units of current models won’t work.

Bases - guessing trays will help here but back to square again?


I think they could revive it just fine, but they’d have to be careful in doing so.
They would need a free mix between AoS and WHFB as a divide would likely hurt them a lot.

My guess is they'll have FW resculpt most of the stuff for Old World to look like TW:W models, since that's the target audience, not the physically dying old guard who remembers when WFB was a new thing.

Got to agree. Regardless of how overblown GW's marketing language is, it's usually fairly competent. There's no point to follow up a full caps "huge" with a plain "giant" unless the latter is specifically hinting at the teased thing.

It'll be Azyrite Mootlyngs. Long have the halflings of the Mortal Realms lived in peace under Sigmar's watchful gaze, but as the days grow darker and ever fewer warrior chambers remain unopened, Sigmar prepares to unleash his most terrible weapon on the scourges of Chaos and Nagash.

A unit or two would have made a nice addition to Cities of Sigmar so GW doesn't have to worry about making a fully functional army out of them, and added to the cosmopolitan feel of the army.

You better hope that they don't aim for the TW:W player base as even a small percentage of them moving across will likely result in AoS being relgated to specialist games.

As one of the "dying old guard" I can just say jog on little boy get back to moving your saturday morning cartoon models around in the bestest dice rolling simulator ever produced in 15minutes on the back of a beer mat

Your last point is especially laughable and comical, because not only the 7th ed Valkyrie shown dumber things (like being able to throw the troopers without parachutes out of its hatches, no harm done) - Irbis
