The new Warhammer ''world'' is literally van Gogh's Starry Night painting with extra grim darkness.

I follow the lore, don't play the game. Bought one book, intend to buy more and any videogames in that setting.

Well it's not like DBZ in my opinion. The lore in AoS is intertwined with the factions and the wars, rather than quickly discarded for the sake of decisive one on one fights.

AoS is a parody of itself.

I don't know. That map looks like an amusing playground of madness and hellfire.

Here's some context for that map from the previews:
Quote:
UNDER BLAZING STARS

In a matter of days the blood-curdling conflicts of the Brimstone Peninsula spread to a dozen theatres of war, then a dozen more. By the time the Hammerhands returned to the sulphurous kingdoms of the Flameworlds, battle raged not only across the Ashlands, but also the strange domains around them.


In the midst of Aqshy?s cosmic sprawl lay a series of sub-realms known as the Flameworlds. The searing passion of the Realm of Fire?s denizens had seen war consume these surreal domains many times over, but throughout their history there had been nothing like the campaign waged by Sigmar against the forces of Chaos.

The largest of the Flameworlds was a vast disc-shaped kingdom known as the Ashlands, of which the Brimstone Peninsula was but a small part. Not one, but sixteen land masses floated upon the Ashlands? ocean of burning acid, waters sailed only by the hardiest of beings in magically protected ships.

Long had the Ashlands been ground beneath the heels of the Dark Gods. Though their edges were blackened and poisonous, their inner regions had been famously populous and fertile. Their people were potent, and the wilderness once harboured nomadic families beyond counting. Now, however, the lands were wretched, barren places, gore-splashed hunting grounds for the Bloodbound worshippers of Khorne.

Even the land itself had been brutalised and broken apart by the strange erosions of Chaos. The peripheral regions of the Ashlands had split away, wrenched from land and sea alike to hover in the cosmos beyond.

With the winds of Chaos howling about them, these islands achieved a kind of aggressive sentience. Vast pinnacles of warpstone-laced rock pushed from each island?s edge, giving them a bullish appearance and a dangerous aspect. Corrupted by Khorne?s own rage, these land masses crunched into the nearby domain of Asphyxia with every seasonal cycle, allowing warherds of monstrous bullgors to spill across. Together, these predatory islands were known as the Tauroi Archipelago, and the fate of their once-strong cultures hung by a thread. Where joyous bonfires once burned bright, the natives now skulked by candlelight in the deepest of caves.


Visible from every point of the Ashlands was the Unreachable Mountain. Dozens of expeditions had made futile sorties towards that distant peak; whole empires had bankrupted themselves in attempts to mine the veins of red quartz that glittered on its slopes. After the tumultuous time of the Firequake, such seekers found themselves no closer to the peak each day ? some were even further away.

On the Unreachable Mountain?s shoulders was a henge of crimson stone. It was said that any who entered it would find their most powerful emotion magnified a hundredfold, bleeding out across the peak and into the Ashlands below. On the hottest days, a vision of this monolithic henge shimmered above the island of Asphyxia, a mirage that some believed led to the mountain?s peak. That vision had once sat upon a high cliff, but that cliff too had been eroded by the lashing gales of magic that haunted the land. After this, the fabled portal hung in the air, making the Unreachable Mountain?s name ring truer than ever.

All the Ashlands suffered under the cruel dominion of Chaos, but the highest toll was paid by the Scarred Isle, a land scoured of all native cultures but for a handful of Fyreslayer lodges too stubborn to retreat. Hovering in the skies above the Scarred Isle was the crescent-shaped Land of the Chained Sun, where many Fyreslayer lodges made their homes. Above their holds was a searing sphere of colossal size, an orange-yellow giant named Ignax that was so bright that any who gazed upon it were rendered blind. It had been the ancestors of those Fyreslayer lodges that made a bargain with Grungni to forge the god-chains and entrap the sun. In doing so they ensured it would never set. Legends said that when the cursed night fell upon the Flameworlds, the fire of Aqshy itself would go out. The Runesmiters of the Fyreslayer lodges had long prepared for that day, hoping their runecraft could prevent it.

Glinting above the Ashlands was Orb Infernia, a cadaverous once-world claimed by daemons and fiends. Though the diamond-hard lands of that immense sphere remained whole, the briny sludge upon which they once floated had long boiled away, leaving a patchwork of landmasses held together only by memory ? that, and the intensity of the hatred between the four Daemon Princes that ruled its mainstay continents. No mortal had trod the surface of Orb Infernia for a thousand years. It was said that should the daemon legions of that hellscape find a way to cross the cosmic seas, the subsequent invasion would see the Flameworlds subsumed within a single day of blood. Few realised how close to reality that eventuality had become.
Here's the image again.


There's a bit more in the previews, but it's in the context of the crusade that happens there.

So they went full on Brighthammer : Realm of Chaos.

Bigger and crazier doesn't necessarily mean better. We'll see the end result in thirty year I suppose

Have you read any of the new lore on the Aelves? You said you were going to wait for that.

Wait a minute. There is someone who greenlighted that ? I mean, all those names are terrible and the map look grotesque.

Some of the names are pretty terrible, but what's wrong with the map?

For a piece of modern day warhammer art, I find it pretty subpar, quality wise.

Which of the Aelven Factions did you like the best? I think from what you said before Order Draconis might be your favourite since you liked High elves so much and they are supposed to be pretty similar. The Phoenix Temple too. I don't know if you would like the Lion Rangers or the Swifthawk Agents.

I don't... I mean there was one that was really really bad in one of the books, but this one is a vast improvement from both that and WHFB.

And the design of this map is absolutely atrocious : flashy colours for whatever reason, a terrible lack of any actual indication about what there is of importance in those places, and zero effort in making them at least somewhat able to sustain any kind of life.
