Chaos Spawn warscroll from the 2nd video has an ability to add one of the 4 Chaos names as Keyword even Slaanesh!!!

I think Slaanesh is still part of the lore. If they wanted to ditch the 4th Chaos God, they would have done. The fact (s)he is imprisoned shouldn't make much difference, really - "imprisoned god" is totally a motif for a lot of things.

The lads from dakkadakka seem to be on top of things.

Besides having amazing artwork and campaign maps, the next book seems to expand on fluff where Sigmar was leading the early tribes of the mortal realms against chaos. Also seems to show just how he lost his hammer.

Right then, first, it appears that forge world have released their warscrolls for chaos dwarves.

Secondly,  I saw upon the Lustria site the rumor of law of war rules by GW that help balance the game for more competitive minds.
http://www.lustria-online.com/threads/rumour-gws-law-of-war.16698/

There is supposedly such ruleset up on Warseer but I don't know how legitimate it is so I refrained from posting it. Best to wait for the official update.

Got a look at the new chaos champion model, have to say it's the first model released for AoS so far that I think I would buy. 

I really don't think the law of war thing is legit.  It uses a lot of language and ideas inconsistent with what GW has been releasing.  It also doesn't work very well so maybe it is, I dunno.

Damn it, why!? I just want to know what things look like GW! Nice to hear beastmen getting a nod. They are always a faction I fear are on the verge of being cut off.

Looking at some of the released images, it mentions the hosts of Sigmar's city (can't remember name) being unleashed. The hosts are all the Olde World races or descendants of the civilisations of the Age of Myth. In fact all the races are mentioned in fighting in parts of the Realm Gate Wars but other than that nothing else. Just a big tease really.

I'm thinking we won't see the free people for a long time as GW has months worth of new releases of models and scenarios that would leave the free people model and fluff concepts hanging in the air. Their competitors (almost all of whom specialize in human models) wouldn't hesitate to take advantage of this and start ripping off their designs so they can sell cheaper soldiers and steal GW's customers. (Probably why we won't see Aelves for a long time either)

GW is like a Hippo in the river, it may have thick skin (it's secrecy policies that tick the fans off) but that's because the swarms of piranhas keep trying to take bites out of it.

Sigmar needs to stop loaning his hammer to everyone; isn't that how we got here? Then again, maybe it's just a good excuse to play the Quest scenarios again ... "If the Celestant-Prime is killed, immediately go back and play the Quest games again to get the hammer back."

That's a shame, it really looked like Sigmar was going to wreck face on the battlefield again. I wonder why he decided to leave the fighting to his servant instead? I can only guess that he knew the struggle is long from over and the reforging of the Eternals is more important for the war effort.

No doubt the new model is going to be epic.

Thanks for the info, StealthKnightSteg. :::cheers:::

The new model IS epic - I have seen pics on the FB group.

There is also a rumor the Celestant-Price is Karl-Franz ....

They don't want you to be able to kill Sigmar most likely. Though who knows, you might see a model for him in a later campaign.

Edit: I saw the model. I can see what they were going for but they just didn't get there. He looks fat, the pose lets him down tremendously. The hammer isn't the centrepiece either, which it should be. I get the shape of the wings and whatnot, but they could have preserved that and still had a much better pose of the body.

I can't imagine them doing a "Sigmar" figure, or for that matter a figure for any of the other deities.  Although this is GW.  If they did that, it would certainly confirm a "High" fantasy direction has been taken.

Nagash? Tyrion?

At least some of the deities are the Incarnates.

pictures from the fb group, also was the hammer Ghal Maraz ever a focal point, sculpt wise?

Yeah just fat, and that lightning belt is gross. The silhouette of the model is a good concept, but the details and execution are poor.

The Hammer was not the focal point of previous minis, because they were characters with names and backgrounds - they were heroes. This figure just appears to be a creature fashioned simply to carry the hammer. It's the weapon of a god, the guy carrying it doesn't even have a face. Disappointing.

There's a lightining bolt there as part fo the figure? Hmmm ... it is currently eluding my eyes.  And as for no face, it has the same face as all the rest of the Stormcast figures, yet that isn't surprising given the overall tone of the Stormcast figures.  Not much inspiration for me, yet that isn't surprising either, oh well.

Onward Olde World soldiers ... back to such a fantasy land I suppose.
