Looks like release timeline for new warbands is as follows:

Feb ... Chaos as shown above
March ... Lizard band
Apr ... Vampires
May ... Orcs

But wondering what this "Direchasm" label on the Chaos warband is ...

Direchasm is just like the 'seasons' expansion thing we were talking about with Beastgrave.

So the game is Underworlds. The first season was Shadespire, then Beastgrave and now Direchasm.

I continue to really like these chaos models, and I generally really don't like chaos.

The new savage orc warband is getting previewed for Direchasm/Underworlds.

Quote
the Warhammer Underworlds warband for May is Savage Orruks! Meet Toofdagga, one of the boyz from Hedkrakka’s Madmob.



The link includes a little bit about their playstyle and cards they can use if you want a bit more about the mechanics.

He's a beefy boy but I do really like the look of that orc. If the warband is similar to the other orc warbands then I expect it'll be 3 models, one of which seems likely to be a shaman.

Hmm wonder if that means they'll come out more Nobz size then so not integrate well into square based old Savage orc regiments. I mean the one pictured looks good and I like making front ranks diverse and interesting just been leery on the scale.

I don't have any of the new orrucks, but from seeing them they look significantly bigger then old orcs. Easily nob size. The other ones are all very bulky from the armor, so this guy kind of looks slim compared to them, but I don't know how well they'd fit in a unit. As a savage orc chieftain however, I think they'd be the right size.

I think he'd look better in a darker paint scheme.
