W:AoS broadening the possibilities for human faction content, I see.

Its a fairly big, almost all text, article so I'm not going to quote all the blocks like I usually do, but there's a neat look at how Free Cities is going to have an Order system, very similar to Imperial Guard from 40k. Heroes will be able to assign themself secret orders, that are then revealed later in the turn. Its similar but different to 40k, and honestly I like it. Its always made sense to me how humans could stand up to all these terrible creatures with a little discipline, and an order style system seems like a good way of doing.

Worth checking out.

I'm intrigued that the Cities of Sigmar figures are being released in relation to how this may or may not impact the arrival of Warhammer: The Old World.

Totally anecdotal and thus not worth more then whatever salt you'd like to season this news with, but today is pre order day for the full cities of sigmar release. Both my local stores and local GW store are packed with people coming in to preorder, and a ton of people busting out old empire or brett armies to play in todays age of sigmar round robin. Its pretty nice to see the good old human order players representing.

Agreed. New interest or old players blowing the dust off their models.

Yeah I actually love this guy. A great model showing the delusions infecting the ghouls now.

We are totally normal, sane people! Now all rise for the judge...

That looks awesome. And honestly, my main thought is "finally!"

I've quite liked the new lore, but its been hard to pull off on the table top because the army still used almost entirely old models that didn't really fit the theme.

Very cool. I love Callis and Toll. I would LOVE to see them be available as heroes for WQ Shadows over Hammerhal.

I honestly love the look of this guy coming. He's this years event model, so what they give/out sell at the big in person events like the tournaments. Sadly makes it much harder to get.

The counterpart from the Age of Sigmar is a little better armoured, but still retains an avian demeanour. This is the Steel Rook, an alternate Arch-Knight for the Freeguild Command Corps. They continue the animal theme of the Arch-Knights, adding a third, bird option to the bear or fish knights you can build from the main Corps kit. They’re even accompanied by an actual rook, just in case the feathered fashion statements were too subtle.

Those are both very cool models.

New edition is updating the look of the old liberator models. Which is nice, the newer look is MUCH better IMO.

Yes, yes, definitely the reason they aren't showing up in full via The Old World, GW's current business structure doesn't allow for it.
