It's just heavy plate armor with hunting trophies.

The realmgates are in fact part of 40k and that is why the models look like they belong there.

The Orruk big boss on his wywern is awesome, I'll give them that. But the rest range from meh (the brutes) to utter garbage (the boars thingies are hideous).

IMO the brutes are okay but they'd be easy to convert into Mega Nobz for 40k so they go to a good in my books.

New goblins would have been cooler. They're more fun than harder serious orks.

Bretonnia is never coming back for the simple reason that Games Workshop can't copyright the shit out of them. Their entire shtick is that they're a low fantasy 100 Years War France/Arthurian Knights. That's about as un-copyrightable an imagery as you can get when it comes to fantasy.

The closest that we'll get is Not-Imperial Guard mortal humans who aren't Sigmarines and since the golden boys are playing up the whole 'knightly' aesthetic the best you can hope for is them being closer to Empire State Troops or peasants than knights.

We're in damage control season now lads. I fully expect a 'ranked battles' ruleset before Christmas. People can also look forward to the 10 more expensive reprint of existing books with points values added in no doubt.

In fairness, now that Kirby has been executed then maybe they're actually, gasp, doing market research.

Thats all well and good, but when do they retcon the setting into something Balthasar gelt made up when he was huffing gold paint?

That's pretty much it. Ogre lore is about half a page per tribe.
The Grand Alliance books aren't exactly known for the depth of their lore...
---
Spidergod is still a thing in that it is an aspect of Gorkamorka. Some spider bit the ork deity without being noticed and drained some of the divine power, basically becoming divine itself. The spiderfang clans have carved out a sizeable domain across the realms in its name.
---
Ungolianth, probably. This happened *long* ago and the text makes no dice about the fact that this aspect of Gorkamorka is as important and powerful as any of his other aspects, like the Suneater (who consumed at least one actual sun), the Relentless Hunter (who depopulated a world because he just couldn't stop hunting) or the Bad Moon (a actual, possibly sentient moon that even Gorkamorka couldn't destroy).
Info from GA: Destruction.

EDIT: Alot of the Ironjawz stuff is already out of stock.

In the show, in addition to talking about the fantastic time we had meeting Jervis Johnson and other members of the studio, and getting to play stet some of the ideas and scenarios in the book and we also release more information about the contents of the book.

First thing, it’s a book and will be release in the summer.

The Generals Handbook is an awesome new release from games workshop that includes 3 new ways to play Age of Sigmar including Open, Narrative and Matched play.

Open play is pretty much Age of Sigmar as we know it now, Narrative is story driven along the line of the realm gate wars books and the 3rd version is Matched play which includes a FULL POINTS SYSTEM for all Warscrolls in the Age of Sigmar.

Ben Curry (Bad Dice Podcast), Dan Heelan (Heelanhammer), Wayne Kemp and Russ Veal (Facehammer) were invited into games workshop to, and i quote, “Help make it great”
There are 5 new campaigns including path to glory,

22 new battle plans from small games all the way up to epic battles between the games biggest characters.
6 new ‘Pitched Battle’ scenarios
Multi-player and team play and of course,
full points values for every Warscroll in Age of Sigmar.
Listen to the full episode for more information
Seems like they are really reaching to the community.

Is it just me, or has the quality of the artwork gone down?

Also, although I dread the new models, I want to see what Seraphon and VCs will get.

I love how the maps look like someone made their Sanic the hedgeheg fanfic and gave it too much worldbuilding.

Compare that to these inbred beauties.

Yeah, something in AoS art is off. I am wondering if some art directors have left.

Seraphon are not a thing. There are no Seraphons. Because Seraphon is a fucking stupid name for a bunch of Aztec lizards è_é.

Didn't Vampire Counts get quite a few new models during the End Time already ? Lots of Morthingy.
