I like it. I’m not seeing a whole lot of new ideas for units though, which disappoints me. Interesting in knowing what those sniffer ones do. Also I like the look of the armoured guy with the moon shaped helmet. Thats a cool idea!

Personally, I really like how GW has approached this army. As the night goblins were always my favourite army, they have done a wonderful job in pulling the old and tying it in with the new. Moonclan, forest goblins, trolls and giants. What could be better. Already a fan of the new, AoS2 and this army have gained my entire confidence. I no longer worry if they will squat old armies/units as the warscrolls already exist for everything and have no worry about future factions. No doubt they will pull all time favorites from the past and combine them with the new.
Starting this year,  I have no hobby room, no new rules or battletomes, nothing new 40k - zip on it all but I have a definite plan now. AoS2 will be the main system I work on now. I’ll start with stormcast and alternate after each unit with a gloomspite unit pulled from my old army and supplemented with the new gloomspite models. I have both dragon and lion rampant rules and may digress a bit with them but as I don’t have the time or committed resources for anything else, I’ll stick with my new plan.

Any idea how does Warcry relate rules-wise to AoS and/or the board games? A thing of its own, or an iteration/setting in the previous?

I very much like the idea of cultures, instead of the good/neutral/evil races.

They've not given any information out rules wise at the moment.

My impression is that it's a new rules system, in the way Kill Team was for 40k, but that was 90% the same as 40k anyway.  So I expect this to be much like AoS, rather than anything like Underworlds.

That's my impression to. Some kind of skirmish/kill team thing. They've really gotten on board with that kind of stuff, and it gives them a chance to make some interesting and unique looking models without redoing a whole army book or trying to make an entire unit. I'm also a real fan of the whole different cultures thing.

I also like the Khadron Underworlds team. One of the first that's really caught my interest. Some of the Endless Spells also look real neat as possible scenery. We don't play with Endless Spells here, but I might pick up some like the Fyreslayer ones to make the board look fancy.

I think the forge is a scenery piece for the Fireslayers rather than an Endless spell.  The magma golem thing is though

More war cry previews! This time a look at what they call a more 'classic' look chaos warband.

Quote
Meet the Untamed Beasts – perhaps Warcry’s most savage warband (and believe us, they’ve got some stiff competition). Hailing from the Jagged Savannah in Ghur, these raiders have a distinctly old-school aesthetic that’s reminiscent of classic Marauders and barbarians of Warhammer’s past. If you’re looking for a warband that looks like it came straight from the pages of Slaves to Darkness, these are the guys for you!





Quote
Just as distinct as their Chamonite counterparts, the Iron Golems, the Untamed Beasts are nomadic warriors. They scorn those who indulge in fripperies like establishing permanent settlements or wearing forge-crafted armour, instead subsisting on hunting carnivorous beasts – or any unfortunates who’ve stumbled into their domain.

The Untamed Beasts have a really distinct and dynamic aesthetic that sets them apart from other Chaos models. Traditionally, the servants of the Dark Gods are trudging, resolute, ironclad creatures. Instead, each of these models is bursting with energy and dynamism. At first glance, you could well mistake the Untamed Beasts for hunting animals. Just as with the Iron Golems, the rich, dark world of Warcry has allowed our designers to shed light on new facets of Chaos, as well as giving us insight into life in the wilds of the Mortal Realms themselves.
