    those bowmen's headgear looks like crap. I get what they were going for with the historical reference but it just doesn't work for me.

    Still better than the pansy hairdos of the previous High Elf Archers, surely?

    meh not sure what to think of this. In all honesty the strongest reaction I'm having is "shame since it won't be in AoS".

    I really wish they'd give an explenation as to what exactly the old world is going to be so I can figure out if it's something I can maintain next to AoS or is something I should just ignore for the most part.

    This was fantastic news for the most part, as it makes you wonder if GW are going to bring back other squatted or nonexistent factions (like Chaos Dwarfs, Araby, Kingdoms of Ind and Albion), but there is one snag:
    Given that a Forge World designer has designed the upcoming Kislev miniatures, it almost certainly means that most of, if not all, the new stuff is going to be made by bloody Forge World with their ridiculous prices and fancy-pants resin that forces you to risk sticking your fingers together just to make up a few models.

    Thank you, GW, for shooting down one of my biggest hopes in flames :mad:

    Meh... never been that interested in them. Chaos Dwarfs better be getting a full faction if GW has time to expand upon Kislev.

    Good catch.

    Where there is a GW will, there is a GW way!

    I'm not overly concerned.

    I agree with you that Kislev is certainly not as interesting as the non-human factions (or even other human factions such as Albion and Araby), but the fact that GW have even considered bringing them back at all means it will be more likely that they’re going to bring back other factions squatted before the later editions and even introduce previously non-existent ones, so Chaos Dwarfs returning looks a lot more likely now.

    Well, if you do get into TOW I’ll feel sympathy for your wallet ;)

    Honestly I think that relegating it to Forge World is a bad move, because the price will put off a lot of potential new players who missed out on accumulating plastic armies during previous editions, plus customisability is lost in Forge World kits because they have very few spare bitz, but we’ll see how it goes. I’m still interested in monitoring news on this and observing their approach in developing it, but it’s unlikely at best that I’ll actively get into it.

    I don't disagree with you. I'm not concerned because I'm perfectly satisfied with 8th. It TOW is underwhelming, I'll just stick with what I have.

    Can't say this affects me a whole lot while on deployment, but I guess I'll have to keep this in mind if there's anything in the works when I get back.

    Just a quicky one:

    Since AdeptiCon was cancelled, the new reveals of GW for this year, tomorrow we will have the reveals live via Twitch. Here are the hours you have to tune in to watch it.

    Another thing to remind you: there will be another special preview April 4th AND you can watch previous Twitch streams too in the meantime.

    At least the big cows look halfway decent. Their aelven soldiers just look weird:

    Seriously the hell kind of super impractical headgear is this?
