Seems like after 7 years of AoS they are working on 'normal humans':

I will not hold by breath. The Scale creep will probably mean that the miniatures will not be compatible with any old Empire miniatures. Maybe they produce some interesting bits though.

Ogroid Theradons, plural. They’re basically Minotaurs/Bullgor (new and old names for the same thing) for the upcoming Slaves to Darkness book, which will also see new plastic Chosen, mounted Chaos Lord and the new Daemon Prince dual-build kit for AOS and 40k.
you know you can just play 8th, right?

I like them a lot more than the older plastic Bullgors.

If they're making new models for Warhammer: THe Old World Bretonnians, Empire and Kislev, it makes sense to have a use for the very same models in AoS.

In the worst case they're repackaging the old models with a sprue of 'Sigmar' etc. emblems. Just as they did with the IG/Cadian box with a new head sprue. But the wording and description of the project make me think that at least some genuinely new figurines will be sculpted.

Are warscrolls available anymore on the GW site? They used to have them as a download with the product. I’ve taken a break from the hobby and just revisiting it all again. I have an ogre army started but can’t copy/paste pics from Wordpress anymore. It doesn’t give me the option and that sucks. But now I started to gather all the pdf’s and they don’t seem to be available anymore

They are not, although one can still hunt up quite a few.

Rats.  I see they are all available on the app but unprintable. I hate using the phone to look everything up. Was hoping I could print off the ones I use and laminate them. Always some catch to everything

Honestly, the ruleset has progressed to the point where just having the Warscrolls by themselves is... kind of useless. After the GHB introduced allegiance abilities (to much praise), they went all-in through 2nd Ed. This makes the Warscrolls only half of the equation, as the interplay between Warscrolls and the army's allegiance abilities dictates how your list will play.

Although I appreciated when AOS was simply Warscrolls, Battleplans and maybe Time of War rules, folks coming over from WHFB and 40k cried bloody murder and rules bloat has crept back in.

Veteran Infantry Take Centre Stage in the Next General’s Handbook

After a year of beatdowns from behemoths during the Era of the Beast, matched play is shifting gears in Warhammer Age of Sigmar, as the General’s Handbook: Pitched Battles 2022-23 – Season 1 comes to pre-order this weekend.

This new tome shifts the focus from the savage wilds of Thondia to the serpentine tunnels and plunging ravines of its neighbouring continent – Gallet, the Splintered Land. Here’s what you can expect in the coming season…

Interesting what they're doing in trying to shift "the meta" every 6-18 months, but the rules bloat is real, too.
