Maybe they were a bit too high when they created the ridiculousness.

I blame Marvel - designers obviously thought Loki was cool.  :closed-eyes:

You mean they will be using Ouija boards instead of Tarot cards for their business plans from now on?

Why don't you knock it off with those negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change ….

I think 023 might like the giants coming out (not the game but the models). Scroll down and check it out.

We're looking at the same preview at the same time I see! Here's some pictures I was able to find on a discord.



Apparently significantly taller then the old plastic giant model.





Quote
This is a Scinari Cathallar,* and she plays a vital role in Lumineth society. All Lumineth use aetherquartz, the realmstone of Hysh, which gives them enlightenment of mind, body and spirit. But this has a price, and the Aelves pay by siphoning their turbulent emotions into the aetherquartz. In battle, Scinari Cathallars weaponise this emotion, drawing it from their allies and turning it against their enemies. Foes are rendered helpless by the overwhelming rush of despair and darkness.

It's a real hot take round these parts some times but I'll say it. I like all the above. The dark elves will 100% see use as assassins and D&D/RPG characters. The Giants look sweet, but are going to cost a small fortune, and even the new Wizard looks really interesting. I think a different paint scheme will make a huge difference, and the power of emotions magic is weird but interesting at the same time. It's a cool change from traditional fire balls.

The Sons of Behemat are a brand-new army for Warhammer Age of Sigmar, made up entirely of gargants. The classic Aleguzzler Gargant and three Mega-gargant variants – Gatebreaker, Warstomper and Kraken-eater – make for an army that’s small on model count and big in every other way – especially the carnage they can cause!

And if folks think the price of the goldswords was a bit too much, wait till ya see the price of the new giants.  Golden indeed.

Indeed. I'll just have to find a square base that will fit.  ::heretic::

I still really like the look of a lot of the Lumineth guys. Cows are a bit more border line, and I will 100% change the bull horn helmets on the hammer elves, but those spearmen and cavalry look real nice.

I stopped being interested in the lore when AoS came in as everything just seemed to get weird - and this along with the Idoneth shark/eel cavalry from a while ago I feel sums that up! :laugh:

What significance does the bull/goat/mountain have in relation to the old Elves? It was always my (loose) understanding that AoS was sort of re-imagined realms of stereotypically over the top elements from each faction - Dwarves became steampunk engineers, undead got MORE bones etc. and everything got silly new names, so where does the mountain bull with a massive hammer come into play? Dragons, lions and even sea creatures for HE sure but I don't remember them ever having any cows in their arsenal...

I will say I mostly like the aesthetic of the infantry and knights, though the poses for the horses I find a little unnatural. I did collect some HE and was always really disappointed that Warriors, Archers and Silver Helms never got an update and looked horrendous stood next to their gleaming elegant counterparts in latter years. I think with a few head and shield swaps they could make some really good conversions for the Old World.

This isn't quite right. AoS is a whole new world/system. Imagine it more like 10,000 years in the future. A great many things are inspired by or influenced by the Old World. Especially those parts that are controlled by the new gods, who lived during the Old World. So the cows are new. They're suppose to be the mountain spirits of this new kingdom, and these particular elves have bonded with a more elemental side of the world then the old High Elves.

These new Lumineth are probably the closest successor of the High Elves we'll get, but their a new successor with new stuff. Not a perfect copy paste of the old. Their lore even has them being tutored by Tyrion and Teclis as an attempt to rebuild their old people. But rebuilding still ends up with a new result.

I think the Fyreslayers are a great example of this. Imagine the Slayer cult passed down generation to generation for 10,000 years, until its evolved from a small cult to an entire faction of believers. Then at some point they actually walked and fought with Grimnir himself. You get something deeply inspired by the Old World, but still totally new.
