Either way; lots of great conversion material available with all the new stuff

I agree. Some of the details and accessories are fantastic.Will work perfectly for every army starting from Dark elves, to High elves, to Chaos dwarfs.  :smile2:

Where is this made to order stuff on the GW shop ?


It hasn't started yet. When it will be, it's usually under the pre order section. So far they've just announced it as a program their going to do.

It's an infrequent thing which is usually only announced the week before a set of minis will go on Made to Order, and you only have a week to order them, then it can take anywhere from a week to a month before they get sent out.  It depends on how many they end having to make.

I'm sure some of us who keep an eye on these things will put up a message on this forum to let people know when anything is happening

So GW has been putting a bunch of short stories out as part of their Malign Portents event. I thought people might like these ones. Looks like the sea elves aren't staying under water:

I agree the Idoneth Deepkin are very nice models, but are they not just elves. Would have been nice to see scales or web hands and feet, gills even, then you could either round off the ear or remove it to make a different race. Also betting that turtle turns up in some 40k armies before long.
They seem like dark elfs.  Maybe I'll call them deep elfs?  Yep, that sounds better than the GW name.  I like 'em! :icon_cool:

Teclis kinda screwed up creating the Deepkin because all of the elf souls that Slaanesh consumed bears some kind of taint. Like Morathi and her elves have the gorgon thing going. The Deepkins offsprings are born with souls that slowly eroded away, so they have to reinvigorate them with the souls of other people.

I did notice that. However, they seem to be find less joy in causing suffering and they don't appear to be nearly as decadent as the Dark Eldar.

Thatís exactly why I hate the DE both in fantasy and 40k. The fact there is so much suffering already to be found and they live off of that controlled debauchery makes me feel good to destroy as many of them as I can 😺
They are great enemies to despise.

In WHFB the DE was a pastiche of Michael Moorcock's fictional race the Melbonťans, which did indeed grow so wicked and decadent that all the other nearby people of the world ganged up on them and laid waste to their civilization. GW took a great deal of inspiration from Moorcock for their settings, so the DE has always been a rather appropriate inclusion.

Excellent to learn the source of fluff and itís inspiration. I guess the Protestant puratism impact I grew up in left itís mark 😸
Slaanesh is more evil that the 3 chaos gods combined and I just donít feel gork and mork are truly evil lol.

Quite. GW "borrowed" so much stuff from Moorcock that they also straight up used the same 8 pointed star that Moorcock originally envisioned as a symbol Chaos. In his version of the Chaos star the 8 arrows sprouting in different directions suggests that there are no wrong options and all paths in life is just as valid. Meanwhile he envisioned the symbol of Law to be a single arrow pointing upwards in one direction, suggesting that the truth path in life is staying true to structure and order.

Moorcock would have the gods of Chaos and Law being at constant conflict with eachother. Should one side ever gain supremacy over the other the cosmic order would be out of balance and mortals would suffer under extreme forces. Law might not seem as bad as Chaos, but too much Law will ultimately lead to a sterility where nothing flourishes.

Games Workshop decided to tone down the gods of Law, but with Age of Sigmar they seem to be making a sort of return as dominant forces at conflict with Chaos.

Faeit is reporting that those models pictured above will be the contents of the new starter box. If that is the case, I'd have a hard time turning it down.

I think he meant Stormcast Vanguard Chamber, rather than Everchosen Varanguard.

Ah yes...

Well maybe he has another option now to rethink about? :)
