I wonder why they have not really came forward with the basic human adventure, fighter whatever? I wonder if it would allow those of us WITH HUGE Freaking collections of humans play our older figures without buying new ones!!! thus the Basterd reaction  :closed-eyes:

HEY GW if they look good ill still buy them !!!! **^*&%$&$(*)  :icon_evil:

Probably a business decision of some kind.  Imagine that.

Choosing what they think will sell, that might look cool, then get around to humans because they know us Empire folk are still buying the older figures?  Now they're prepping to release humans, while getting rid of the older figures.

We might end up actually liking whatever new humans they release.  Might.

Apparently a new skeleton based undead army will be released soon. Not a fan of most AoS-era miniatures, but the undead minis thus far have been mostly fantastic. Could be very nice.

Hmm .. the latest teaser-video seems to suggest that this army is a fantasy version of Necrons. Not what I was hoping for, but that fits the AoS theme.

Armoured skeletons with crazy catapult. New Tomb Kings replacement I would say.

Whole new army coming!

Quote
Relentless. Disciplined. Deathless. These are the Ossiarch Bonereapers – the culmination of centuries of planning by Nagash and the harbingers of his dark reign. Where the Legions of Nagash are the foot soldiers of Death and the Nighthaunt are the shock troops, the Ossiarch Bonereapers are the vanguard of a new order.

These are not risen warriors or malignant spirits – they are bespoke war-constructs forged from harvested bone and gifted the soul animus of great warriors and heroes. Alone, they have hundreds of lifetimes of experience and brutal physical prowess. Unified, they are nigh unstoppable, directed into battle by Katakros, Mortarch of the Necropolis – perhaps the greatest military strategist (living, or dead) the Mortal Realms have ever known.

The backbone (see what we did there?) of the Ossiarch Bonereapers are the legions of Mortek Guard and spearheads of Kavalos Deathriders. Each contains the souls of dozens of mortal warriors, and each is a brutally effective combatant, fighting with utter discipline even in the most chaotic battles. These warriors aren’t automata – they have personalities befitting their roles in Nagash’s dark regime. While Mortek Guard are forthright and dutiful, Kavalos Deathriders are possessed of towering arrogance, as suits their role as heralds of the Great Necromancer.

Leading the Ossiarch Bonereapers is none other than Katakros himself. This is no embittered spirit, arch-schemer of the world-that-was or devoted sycophant, but a terrifying new paragon of unlife itself. Granted a new existence in a body of ensorcelled bone, Orpheon Katakros is Nagash’s plan for the Mortal Realms made manifest – efficient, remorseless and instilled with a chilling disregard for life. He’s a real chip off the ol’ Black Pyramid…

Uh boy.  Fantasy style Necrons, lovely.

I like it when fantasy is fantasy and sci-fi is sci-fi.  Having the two interconnect like what we're seeing is less than attractive to me.

... fantasy version of Necrons ...

I think that was a spot on assessment. I'm confused as to what I am looking at here. Strange designs. A weird mix of endoskeleton and exoskeleton, like an insect. I'm definitely with GamesPoet on this one. This looks like something that could have been in a 80s cartoon like He-Man. I very much prefer 'classic' undead like the Deathrattle Sepulchral Guard from 2 years ago. This has no appeal to me.

I have to admit. I’m not very keen on this group. Really liked the nighthaunts but not theses guys. Never was to crazy about necrons either and the comparison is a good one.

I liked the idea of Necrons in 40K. But fantasy Necrons? It's the next bad step to blending together and giving up on fantasy if they choose.

Undead constructs with multiple personality disorder ....

And that's not even a joke.

That new faction, there's no way they haven't designed them look like Necrons unintentionally.  This way folks who are into 40K can use these figures for conversion or whatever over into there 40K Necron armies.  It really is a no brainer.

- - -

I'm trying to keep my expectations low for any new Free people figures.  Especially after seeing the W:AoS Necrons.

By the way, I can see where at least one of the new Warcry factions might double as free people figures. Can not recall the faction name, although they reminded me of Greeks, perhaps something out of the Greek like culture I recall living in the southwestern Border Princes of the Olde World.

I must be a loner in this then here.. I rather like the look of the new Ossiarch Bonereapers, though I doubt I will start an army with them any time soon as I got enough projects still lingering around to be done.

And actually waiting for the Free City stuff to become available

Not a loner at all. On TGA, the reception has been very good.
