    It's not particularly likely, but personally, I'd love it if they decided to bring back the Skytitans in Age of Sigmar as their own faction.

    Still I am kind of well dismayed and curious why they have not put out army books for the various flavors of Elf in AoS

    The precursors to giants, with an actual civilization before the Ogres killed them all or drove them off. Or are you curious why I'd want them?

    I mean I like the idea, and I think it would be cool what with so many factions coming back despite being "utterly destroyed" in the End Times that the Skytitans might have found a way to revitalize themselves.

    @Brainleech Sky titans were the intelligent, civilized, but hermetic ancestors of Warhammer's giants. They lived in mountaintop castles on the highest peaks in the world, well above the cloud layer, and only came down to tend mammoth herds for food. Sky titans would become increasingly sedentary as they got older, eventually becoming one with the mountains they lived on. The sky titans race and culture were eradicated by the ogres during their first big migration westward after the ogres' god, the Great Maw, crashed into their original homeland. But it is said that some found a way to make their castles fly, and escaped the purging of their race, though they never showed up again in Warhammer lore. The giant ironblaster cannons the ogres use (the one attached to a sled pulled by a woolly rhino) are stolen from the ruins of sky titan castles.

    Basically, it's a bunch of backstory for the ogres and giants.

    edit: hah, beaten to the punch. Should've known better than to reply to a thread I opened before lunch without refreshing first.

    Since my main (i.e., only) AoS army is Beastclaw Raiders, I look forward to them eating all the sky titans, again.

    Ok, I wasn’t aware their backstory had been developed* so much; that’s way cooler than the generic lived-in-the-mountains-until-they-got-et stuff I’d seen before.

    There's so much weird sci-fantasy crap in AoS, you could easily get a race of advanced giants. The history of the realm of fire mentioned a civilization of Volc-Giants also.

    Of course this means we would also have to imagine a race of giants with a fully functioning civil economy, which in turn means giant lawyers in enormous suits that accidentally intimidate human witnesses just by leaning down to hear them better. Or possibly picking them up for the same purpose…

    I've been replaying FF1 on the nes recently, and I'd forgotten how much sci-fi there is towards the end (I mean, I remembered WarMech, just not so much of the other stuff). I kinda like that, throwing in really out there stuff in an otherwise typical fantasy setting, just hidden in remote far-off places. I've also always been fond of floating islands/castles. My three favorite fantasy locales are 'above the clouds', 'old forest', and 'grassy highlands'. Bonus points whenever there's some kind of ancient or time-worn castle, temple, or ruins to explore.

    Anyway, I guess my point is, I hadn't thought of sky titans being a thing in AoS, but that definitely seems like a cool idea to bring back around.

    So I think I finally figured out the AoS list I'm going to branch my Souls Wars Stormcast out in to:
    • Lord-Arcanum on Gryph-Charger (General, so Sequitors count as Battleline)
    • Lord-Celestant on Stardrake
    • 20x Sequitors (w/ 9 Greatmauls)
    • 5x Judicators (w/ 1 Stormshock Bow)
    • 5x Judicators (w/ 1 Stormshock Bow)
    • 5x Evocators
    • 5x Evocators

    1980 points. I'll buy a second Soul Wars Stormcast half from ebay, which leaves me just a box of Evocators, a box of Judicators and the Lord-Celestant to buy new. Plus a couple of Sequitors which I can also get loose models from ebay.

    Am I the only one who isn't really into Night Goblins and wishes they would focus more on... every other kind of Goblin?

    Also I really hope they bring back Tomb Kings and bring them back as an undead Faction fighting against Nagash, as is proper. I want to see the return of Settra the Imperishable

    One of the things I loved about the Tomb Kings, and hope they bring back, is that although they are undead (and tyrannical assholes) they treat their conquered living subjects as... subjects. And actually like rule over them, and attempt to do so justly (for their interpretation of justly which, see previous)

    Disagree on the other undead armies (though I think FEC are kinda flat and they could do more with the theme), but agree that Tomb Kings are very interesting and it sucks they got squatted. They had such a cool model range, and the big ostentatious statuary models fit right in with the general thrust of AoS' aesthetic shift.

    Yes, Night Goblins are secretly incredibly skilled fighters; their poor chance to hit actually represents the probability of identifying the real target amongst all the hallucinations.

    I really like the Slaanesh aesthetic, except for how cartoonishly evil they are. I know HEROIC! and EVIL! are kind of GW's whole thing, but still. I think it would be fun to paint an army of them as just cool-looking crustacean-people, but so many of their models depict torture :/

    digging out old armies because I was invited to play some small scale stuff and figured I'm finally over things.

    setting aside the weird factor of all my armies now being 3-5 separate factions that don't particularly play well with the matched play allies rules...

    did they really squat the chaos lord on a disc, and empire greatcannons?

    edit: oh my god where are the spear elves?

    I think the disc mounted chaos lord is still around in the Tzeentch book, but he's got a different name (Fatemaster?) but they have been steadily removing the older metal/resin sculpts where possible, yes.

    Yeah, someone pointed that out to me that they turned it into the fatemaster when they moved it from the grand alliance book.

    I guess nobody's going to look *too* closely at what you're using as an Ironweld cannon. And HE Spear Elves are now spireguard I guess. RIP repeater bolt thrower outside of the compendium, though :bigfrown:


    edit: also, army creation coming from 40k is a real trip. Order factions seem super rigid to work with, then you have the city alliances that kinda mitigate some of that.

    Then you look at the chaos tentpole books and realize you can make legal armies using entirely marked slaves to darkness models.

    Yeah, looks like they're going for a 40k style rapid release schedule on books to catch things up to date maybe? Sylvaneth looks to be coming out in the next few weeks too.

    The seems to be updating all the older books so that they have endless spells and allegiance abilities etc.

    I reckon we'll probably get a whole new race at some point this year too.

    There appears to be three tiers of releases; Updated book with no new models (Fyreslayers)
    New army using old and new models (Gloomspire Gitz)
    Entire new race (Idoneth Deepkin)

    I'll be kind of surprised it we don't see a new elf (either Tyrion or Malerion) faction alongside Slaanesh stuff in a starter sometime this year.
