Honestly one of the most surprising things from GW. I'd have expected some witches hat type models at some point. I wish GW would do more stuff like the DE Sorc as well. Hell, any nudity would be good too. When a survey pops up, people should ask for more nudity like the good ol' days. Also the introduction of Adult books if kids get their own books.

Seeing the boats and thunderers in person made me fall in love with them.
I gave up starting them during the start of 2nd edition because of their rules. I had no interest in playing slow horde Infantry with shooting to have a chance at winning casual games.
I jumped the shark straight away when their new boat rules dropped and got the SC and pre-ordered aether-war at my lgs.
Very happy with the points drops, but I don't like how the online community is hyping us up to be some new boogeyman. I think we have a strong rock to crush some scissors in the meta, but I feel like there are enough paper and bad match-ups to keep our upcoming winrate looking modest.

Same here my dude, same here. Honestly, I'm usually spending my hobby time scratch building terrain or displays for my existing models because I genuinely get more enjoyment out of it. I've sold off all but my Harlequins for 40k and only because I like their models. I jumped on the LRL hypetrain because I've played High elves since 3rd and I have a genuine, diagnosed fetish for mountains. I was all in from the start and I will be even after their inevitable nerfing. I guess that's kind of my point; I'd rather invest my time and effort into something that's important to me than try and stay on a permanent high skimming from one release to the next.

No, I fucking it get it, my guy. Mountains are super high up on my list of favorite geographical features, too.

I just dislike SCE for their scale. I totally used to hate the fluff but they grow on your like space marines with their various hosts and countless interpretations. Like, I winced at the ONLY THE FAITHFUL before I became fully aware of the Hallowed Knights fluff and what it meant in relation to the whole Alarielle saga.
Hammers are probably boring and I loathe Gotrek's self absorbed ally but then you have crazed barbarian SCE worshipping Sigmar as Grom and edgy remnants of a dead world using Shakespearean prose and lamenting in the realm of the dead. There's something for everyone and eventually the core design clicks with you so you appreciate the whole.
Fuck the scale though and of course there was reason to hate them at the start when other armies went 5+ years unloved and broken while SCE stole their aesthetics and such.

They added them *because* they stopped trying to force the stormcast meme and sold those instead.

Honestly i swear stormies are always new players who dont remember it got so bad even GW employees were joking that reveals at gencon were "dont worry, its not another stormcast release!".

They tried to push stormcast and khorne as ultrmarines and black legion for a different game. That is an objective fact. But a new audience without decades of sunk cost shillvalry had none of it and they pulled back and diverted resources to diversifying their entire line rather than supporting just one like GW does with their "100 space marine releases for every tyranid one" model.

I get it. You like stormcast. Good for you. But that doesn't mean GW wasn't trying very hard to push something that wasn't there.

Yeah, some guys at my FLGS play it because it's like 3-5 models and all the customisation of "list building" is in the deck, not the models.

I think the main appeal is you can vary your force without having to buy huge model collections and games seem relatively quick compared to larger scale games.

Warhammer underworlds is a deckbuilding game. You get a 'season' each year with a core box with two game boards, two warbands and then over the year more boards and warbands are sold seperately. Each warband is fixed models with their own faction cards but also universal cards to mix and match.

It was a sleeper hit with its original release Shadespire then in season 2 Nightvault the magic competitive crowd jumped onto it hard. Then Beastgrave rolled around with little big shakeups like how Nightvault added new dice and spells and instead of things like nighthaunt, skaven or dwarves it was beastmen and beast elves which have little appeal to the audience at large (calm down BoC anon, i know you are autistic for them, most just arent) and with no major rule shakeups, an art style changes and races that werent as appealling it really fell off and then corona happened.

They are getting ready next month to ramp up for a soft relaunch and a season 4 box to replace it, the rumour is its seraphon vs bonereapers but all we know now is it was due in June and things happened.

Its a very fun game and got many card game only folks i know into war cry, kill team, 40k, aos and malifaux so its a great gateway game and simple enough for all ages. It just declined a bit in popularity with the art style change.

Underworlds is basically a board game style thing where you play a set warband with strategy cards to assist you. Each box comes with strategy cards for a warband but you can mix and match with others too (some are specific to warbands, some are general).

This is currently the third season - Beastgrave - and there have been two previous seasons. They're all compatible but GW does eventually stop releasing the seasons and the default rules change slightly depending on which one you're playing, e.g. Beastgrave has more traps and terrain tiles than the previous two. Beastgrave is IMO the best contained version of Underworlds so if you want to buy in and get a couple of Beastgrave warbands I think you'll be fine. A game usually takes 30 mins - 1 hour.

There will definitely be a season 4 because GW has previewed it and it looks like it'll also be set in Beastgrave or at least Ghur, but the warbands will be different and the rules probably slightly different too.

I do hope Stormcast keep getting support, the early models are pretty boring but the AoS 2 models are pretty cool, taking the helmets off and showing the people underneath makes all the difference.
AoS1 Stormcast are basically space marines, they like sigmar and battling chaos and that's about it.
AoS 2 Stormcast are people who faced chaos and didn't lose their souls and were thus found worthy of being given great power, but are still people.

I hope AoS3 brings even more depth to them, takes them further away from being fantasy Adeptus Astartes.

I see. So if I pick up another warband I'll get some cards with them that detail each members stats etc, but also strategem-style cards that may or may not be compatible with different warbands?
I won't lie, I'm not at all interested in AoS but I like my Beastmen and my Wood Elves so this may well be a one-off purchase. Do older warbands suffer from power-creep or anything like that? The way you mention traps for Beastmen makes it sound like a unique feature to them.

They started pushing this "rotational format" thing with Beastgrave so the season 1 stuff isn't "legal" and when season 4 comes out season 2 stuff won't be.

Without going full fanfic on the board, a sentinel force of hunters found and ambushed the BCR, but spared the beasts as seeing them as corrupted.

So, The Old World coming out suggests Empire will get a load of units, right? So, there is no reason NOT to give them to CoS as well. Also, I want big cannons. Big cannons are my fetish. Only faction with a BIG CANNON are Chaos Dwarf and it's more of a howitzer/mortar.

But there is. Namely, they can't force you to buy two armies to play both systems.

What? No, I mean like Chaos Daemons. You can buy Chaos Daemons for AoS but then use it in a 40k game. So you can do it for Empire and CoS. You can buy your ToW Empire kits which are sold with square bases. Meanwhile the same sculpts are sold in a CoS box with circular bases.

They're not. They just had a limited amount of people after the civil war... I mean chaos invasion, so they made use of cloning to make twins. Whether it means females have a twin sister or a twin brother or its random, who knows. Regardless, it's perfect for my twincest fantasies. I missed the Twilight Sisters.

Daemons are a special case. And as you may notice, GW goes out of their way to make sure Daemons are always shit in one game. They're decent in AoS right now (so long as you don't fall for that Chaos Ascendant meme) and so they're gutter trash in 40k right now. Once they're broken in 40k again GW will make sure they're shit in AoS again. But with Freeguild they can't do that because, as far as we know, TOW will basically be Empire, Empire and more Empire and you can't make a game's only faction shit.

Yeah but I assume the rules will be different. So, it'd be a bit less of a problem. Regardless, this isn't a case of using two armies in different settings, but literally just you do a new set of Empire kits for ToW and you repackage the new sculpts with circular bases for AoS. So, when you go to buy CoS Freeguild, they'll be the same models as the ToW but on circular. Because otherwise, what's the point? You make the new sculpts for ToW and boom. You can release a new cannon and give it rules in AoS. That way expanding their range.

I don't see why this won't be a thing.

So like Seraphon/Lizardmen are my favorite race, and as much as I would love new models because that would be neat. But it's a shame their lore will suck from this point onward now that we don't have the sick ass named characters like Kroq-gar, Nakai and all the other sick ass warriors
