These are awesome! Where do they fit in AoS proper.  I heard that gitmobs  where being dropped. Maybe reorganized?

Currently they're going to be a new warband for Beastgrave, which is essentially "Season 2" of Shadespire. So they don't slot exactly into an army list. Kind of like the troll and weird squigs. That said, I'm seeing a lot of chatter that they're going to be put into a goblin army book, its just a question of which one.

Either way, I like these! Much better. I'd be interested in seeing the scale of them because GW makes some weird wolves some times, but the look of them is much, much better.

Had to check their webstore, and the old Goblins (Grots) are gone! When? Perhaps about time, the sculpts must have been some 20 years old.

Agree on the need to see the scale of these. But they surely look good.

Given the Mongolian inspired aesthetics, they may appear in the Ogre release which is supposed to come out soon this month.

I think it's baffling that such a tame design, so faithful to the older version, has come out all the way from the design panel. Maybe it's a bone to the old timers, maybe it's a sign that GW wants to bring more of the Old Word back to the AoS. I'd like the second option, because it would mean that we'd get NEW IMPERIAL KNIGHTS GODDAMNIT.

Bingo! That makes good sense. Maybe a more goblin version of gnoblars?

Hmmm ... those goblin wolf riders are a bit of a surprise, and after the release of the Fantasy Necrons & Tyranid precursors, this is almost shocking.

My only complaint is the way they sculpted the saddles with wrapping down around on to the fore legs. Although if a wolf is found sitting, perhaps this helps the goblin stay on? Not surprising for a goblin to come up with such an idea, but GW ... hmmm ... maybe they're really are goblins hiding out in the world, GW stunningly has found them, and has decided not to piss them off with ridiculously inaccurate sculpting.  I can just see the goblins now moving across England to take out the GW facilities, riding wolves no less.  Are there still wolves in England? Or maybe these come from Scandinavia, like the Vikings of old, and the Goblins are hiding out there.

Excellent fluff for the Nottingham coup !

I always liked the ogre aesthetic but never bought them. If this is an idea for their side kicks, I think I’m in

 :icon_lol: I've always like Orcs & Gobos.  And I have an Ork army, almost fully painted, with grots, which in my view are perhaps smaller gobos.

I'm not convinced this is for Ogres.  Remember from my view W:AoS is a transition to 40K.

And these goblins are meant to sell.  Perhaps they will eventually be added to the newest Orcs, can't recall what they are being called now, not sure I want to know, are these even being called goblins?

I went to a Games Workshop today. Most of the stuff I collect from Fantasy/Age of Sigmar is either out of production or now only available by direct order

They're slowly eliminating all Empire related items.  I just picked up from "Last Chance to Buy" a Warscyer Citadel.

Local shops around here aren't carrying much anymore of Empire, and one place told me it could only buy direct. :icon_sad:

All Free Peoples (Empire) and Disposessed (ordinary Dwarfs) have gone direct order only. So the backbone of Old World Good people (don't count the fickle Elves here).

Very interested to see if they will be replaced by new factions & new minis. The ordinary humans and Dwarfs are present in the newest books, so there's hope to see something for them. Funny names for sure. But will the Landsknecht/1500's look survive?

The new battle tome Cities of Sigmar is coming out I think end of month or October. Supposed to be combining the three factions (humans,dwarves,elves) into workable interactive armies/factions. I’m hoping they do as good a job as the gloomspite/night goblins but we’ll have to see. I heard somewhere the puffy sleeves are to survive. Not sure where.

Oh my, they're going to combine humans, dwarfs, and elfs! :icon_eek:

Where does that leave dark elfs and chaos dwarfs?  Or least we forget, halflings!

(GP ... chaos dwarfs were long gone a good ways back.)

Yep, but halflings!

(GP ... halflings too.)

Yep, but dark elfs?

(GP .. their not technically good guys.)

True, perhaps combining humans, dwarfs, and elfs will provide folks with what players need to specialize in any of those.

Dark elves are now somewhat good guys, being mostly the navy of the free cities.. They'll be in the free city book

You haven’t heard the best! Teclis is now a god of the Idoneth Deepkin - almost chaos elves who reep souls to survive. Dark and light elves are mostly allies under malekith, Tyrion is a god as well and has a faction but I can’t think of which one. All will be explained and condensed in the new CoS tome. Can’t wait.
It’s all change.

Tyrion and Teclis are both said to jointly rule what's left of the High Elves, but that particular faction hasn't really been expanded yet.
