Downloaded the new GHB 2017. Went this route because I won't be able to afford the actual book for a bit. And if my approval means anything, I approve. Now there isn't a unit I can't use somehow someway if I like the models all wrapped up under one roof. Well done GW. What's good is if your into the game (a big if) everything I own is good to go.

Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire looks set for October, and they've also revealed the Ironjawz warband.

And they've revealed Malign Portents.

"Dark powers stir in the Mortal Realms. Malign Portents is a major event for Warhammer Age of Sigmar players, and it’s on the way in 2018. There will be big things coming both for the narrative of the setting and for matched play gamers."

I guess it's a summer campaign, along with probably a Death faction release

I did actually mean to post that picture as well.  Which is why I think the campaign is DEATH related. 

That, and Malign Portents is the name, and Malignants are a Death faction

I'm getting the feeling of rules bloat forming now eventhough this all sounds cool.

Just looking at the new shadespire. Is it just me or have the chaos models taken a huge leap forward. I like them so much, I might have  to get some or convert them to free peoples units somehow?

It's quite a cool game too.  I had a demo game up my local GW shop today.

There must surely be quite a lot of chaos symbols and things on those guys.  And, I mean Free-people probably have a wide variety of looks and styles, though artwork I've seen of AoS people, still has them looking like the classic Empire style

Good point. It may be quite a bit of work. In the old world I always wanted a Viking/Norse type of unit but on the empire side of things. Never did get that far but the idea is still there for the new realms. Just like that theme but not chaos 😸

I converted a handful of chaos 'Danes" and had them as mercenaries in my Empire army. I think in some of the older books there was mentions of Norscan tribes that followed different gods, but I always like the idea of more pagan marauders.

Which models did you use? That sounds great. I think Midaski has posted alternative Norse models. It might be a lot easier to use these with AoS flexibility. Maybe in Hammarhall blue and white might be nice with some duardin allies.

I used the old Marauder kits mostly. They were the Danes. Then I used some chaos warriors, filed off the chaos bits, added some more Empirey stuff and called them Varangian Guard. My local club never had am issue with me using them as mercenaries.

Even though I got the flu at the moment (yes.. timing) I think it's time to start with a new years resolution to spark this topic and overall AoS stuff. So expect a bit more and regular posts here. (As soon as GW provides us with some ofcourse)

So in the new year we can expect some new Nurgle of which the daemons will also feature in the new Codex: Chaos Daemons for 40k.

Looks like a very large mutated plant to me. I'm okay with that actually, I can already see some interesting conversion ideas.
