Hmmn. Opinions...

The skydorfs are...ok? I guess? Nothing about the Kharadrim has inspired me at all, but then I've never really been a dwarf kinda guy, even back in the days of the old world. Meh, props for making dwarves their own thing, I suppose. And certainly, from a technical perspective the sculpts are good. Just a bit too metally for my tastes.

The news that WarCry will be open to non-chaos factions is interesting to me, as more variety is always good. I like that you can have multiple species within one warband (the pics showed a dwarf, ogre and human from the same chaos warband). Going back to ye olde warbands from RoC that had all kinds of species in them, it gave a lot of nice variety in painting and suchlike. Contrast with Shadespire, which, while the sculpts are great, with a few exceptions the warbands are internally pretty homogenous, species-wise.

The chaos racer turkey is a bit of a swing-and-a-miss for me. I mean, fair enough, I commend them for trying something new, but it's just a bit unsure of what it's meant to be. Is it a scary threat? A comedy unit? Fast? Powerful? What?

The Slaanesh stuff is 100% win for me. So much so that I want to start a Slaaneshi warband for WarCry or Shadespire or whatever. Regarding the KoS, I get that people want more dynamism and swoosh, but for me Slaanesh has never been about swoosh. It's always been more about control. Poise. Grace. A ballerina can be graceful and elegant standing still drinking a cup of tea. That's kinda what I get from this KoS. It can and will look bloody gorgeous sipping down darjeeling with its left hand whilst whipping the flesh from your bones with its right. Predatory elegance incarnate.

Some previews from the Austrailian Championship Preview:

Chaos Knights for 40K, yes, sure.

The next warband preview for Warcry, the Untamed Beasts - very standard Conan-with-horned-helmets Chaos marauder types.

Eh, pretty cool if that's your thing.

Some modular AoS terrain, which would be pretty dang cool for 40K as well when it comes down to it (although it's not built with cover in mind):

A teaser video for an AdMech transport (finally!).

And (again, finally) a Primaris Techmarine (in Gravis armor, with a heavy bolter, no less) - Iron Hands flavored, so I don't know if it'll have shoulder pad options or what. IH are (I think) the only FF chapter without any named characters or anything, so fleshing them out a bit in a forthcoming box set or campaign book would be a very reasonable move. All the same, cool model!

Some cool looking stuff there. I like the chaos dudes, though if you don't like painting skin, I can see them not being your thing.
The new terrain is ok. I'm getting a definite "There is no Dana, only Zuul" kinda vibe from the statues. :D

I really hope the new ad-mech toys share some of the basic design aesthetics from the 30K stuff, but I won't hold my breath.

Warcry is looking better and better.

Ding ding ding! Give me the heavily-armored guys with diving helmets covering their faces.

Completely baseless speculation, but those bottom three barbarians look pretty... juve-y? In the Necromunda sense?

All of the above is...fine by me? I guess? I'm just not that into big axe-wielding hairy barbarian types, I suppose (exhibit A: 4 eldar armies... :? ) But sure, they're nice enough figs if you like that kind of thing. I'm still quite interested in WarCry, to be sure.

The terrain looks purdy enough. Can't fault it, really.

Chaos Knights? Sure, seems reasonable. The minis will probably be lovely. Keen to see one in more than a silhouete.

Iron Hands guy? Nice fig. Very...techy looking. Again, space marines aint really my jam, but I cant fault the sculpting (and on a side note, those hazard stripes are tight as all get out. A tip of the hat to that painter.)

So, as news goes, it's all very well and good, but not exactly making me sit up and pay attention, but that's fine. It can't all be plastic aspect warriors every week, can it*? :D

I do like that Tech-marine (sorry, can't remember it's Adeptus Copyrightabilitus name). The old mold was really showing it's age. It needed Z-brush and injection molded plastic tech to really bring to life.

I’m having trouble getting over the fact that his respirator looks like a big droopy cowboy style mustache. :lol:

:shock:

I have just had an epiphany. The world needs a gnarly ol' cowboy chapter of space marines. With aforementioned mustaches, and hats, and six-shooters.

And hosses. Lots of hosses.
