Rumours and what's new to be expected of Underworlds
« on: January 24, 2020, 09:19:25 AM »
Thought I would start this topic also for Underworlds with the new reveals from the LVO

I'm a fan of underworld, but not generally a fan of Nurgle stuff. Still, these are really well played.

That paint scheme is horrible.  It might work for the World of 40K, but with fantasy, it ain't doing it for me.

The new season of Underworlds are coming and they've previewed the two teams. A Lumineth and Slaany team.





I think I actually quite like them. The Elf team at least. Hammer elf is getting a head swap, mage and swordmaster are nice, archer I'm lore lukewarm on. The chaos beastman freaks me out, but in a good way I guess?

OK, for once I have to say something nice. I'm not a Chaos guy, but these Chaos Warriors for Underworld are probably the best proportioned standard Chaos Warriors (on foot) in Warhammer history. Still bulky, still with oversized weapons, but within acceptable boundaries.

Ah, I see GW is still selling figures.  For a moment I thought they'd turned to the clothing business. :icon_wink:

In general, their chaos have been very good

I do like those, much more along the vein of the kind of Chaos army I'd like to grow.

I dont even like Chaos but I think they look phenomenal. That kit is pretty much single handedly (Single kitedly?) bring back some old chaos friends back into the hobby.

Apparently those Chaos figures for Underworld aren't quite out yet.  I will be picking a set of them up once they are.

I mean, the Underworlds Chaos Warriors match the ones in the Slaves to Darkness Start Collecting.

New Underworlds warband. First Seraphon models we’ve gotten since they became Seraphon, I believe. The release schedule teases possible Vampires next, then Spiderfang, Bonereapers and Deepkin.

The legs on the chameleon skin, while accurate, freak me out a bit. But the rest of them I really like! They'll fit into my existing lizard force with no issue.

New Seraphon models for Underworlds, the first released for them since they became Seraphon, I believe.

Word on the street is that a Soulblight Vampire warband will be next:



With Spiderfang Grots, Ossiarch Bonereapers, and Idoneth Deepkin next up.

Huh, could have sworn I responded to this. Anyways, I like the set quite a lot. They'll fit in great with my existing lizard force. The Chameleon skins legs freak me out, rightly I feel, but its a neat looking design.

Ohhh, that's wild, it's a completely different lower leg than the existing Chameleon Skinks. The hands have 3 fingers instead of 4, as well. It's more true to an actual Chameleon but less anthro:
