Yeeaaahh, the 3-string bow is dumb as hell. I really wish they'd just made it a normal Yumi. That would've looked sweet.

A better look at the new Underworlds models. Will be interested to see their AOS Warscroll, too.

The "new year new models" teaser video on Warhammer Community, coupled with a passage in the Lumineth book about "long-legged" Lumineth cavalry, hint at the arrival of some type of camel cavalry + a cloud riding Air temple spellcaster.

Jury's still out on the kangaroo cav (except for their bows, those bows are gorgeous) but I'm a big fan of the new mounted commander, especially as the original release lacked a generic leader HERO:



The creature looks cool and the character captures that classic High Elf vibe everyone wanted. Judging by the lore, it seems clear that the aelementari temples are going to have the weird stuff, while the Vanari, who fight for both the Teclis and Tyrion sides of the Lumineth as the rank-and-file, are closer to the old Helf aesthetic. Hopefully, as the range expands, this means that an all-Vanari army is viable.

If we look at the armor style on the greatsword-weilding Underworlds fighter, it's clear we're getting Vanari swordmasters someday too, for those folks who didn't like the yak-helmeted hammerers.

I donít mind the new cav. Kinda like a dinosaur. If the old dark elf could ride little rexís, why not these. Iím trying to remember that type of Dino with the head like that.

I really like the commander. I'm a little concerned about it balancing on one leg, but it looks sturdy enough.

I even like the new cav. I think they're a pretty neat model and fits the more fantastical element.

See the tall, cast blades of grass behind the foot? The hoof is cast into a lump of earth that takes up a much larger footprint. They've that trick on a few kits now.

Hmm interesting. I had noticed that on some of the other models but wouldnt the ankle still be a pretty bendy weak point?

Regardless, I'm a fan. I was already looking at Lumineth but I figure I'll wait for the Get Started box.

It is, but the current plastics are pretty strong and not very heavy. Short of a hit to the floor it should be fine.

Today's Reveal show teased tons of new Lumineth models. Not only does this confirm my old suspicion that the first wave was only ever meant to be half an army, but it's looking like some of the best is yet to come, including a bolt thrower and, yes actual Swordmasters for everybody who cried the blues about my big hat hammer boys.

The above is another elemental like the mountain cow. It definitely pulls off whatever they were going for with the Celestant Prime's base a whole lot better.

With those feet, looks like a Chaos Beast to me.

I get that they're going down the route of new IP, very much their own unique thing in a fantasy setting - but I'm really not buying into these weird beastie hybrid elves.

Cool model - but I hate it  :lol:
