As a former Caledor player I did at one point really want an army that had loads of 3rd party dragons in it. Time is wrong though, you have to go back further than the new setting for it to make sense. Not that they'll let that get in the way I'm sure.
There were always lots of hints in the fluff about the dragons finally stirring from their long slumber. Shame it never happened before the world went pop.

They’re revisiting the Old World in 2023 so there’s always hope. I dug out my 7th ed rulebook so I’m already revisiting it.

If I had to guess there's a new Lelith Hesperax model incoming... also can't wait to get my SoB codex just as soon as the new one's available if the new announced model is any indication:

Hmmm, my only gripe with the model above is that there's absolutely nowhere for her power armour to fit under that demonstrably flexible basque.

Actually my second gripe (so two gripes) is that I'm not convinced that rosary is moving correctly/convincingly. Hopefully it's just the angle.

And as for the size of those shoulderpads... ah forget it, I'll come in again.

Otherwise a lovely model, my favourite lieutenant to date! :p

I hope you're right about that being Lilith, I'm optimistic we might have seen Urien Rakarth in that teaser video as well. May get myself the current haemonculus as a priority though, in case it's a generic replacement.

Maybe it's an angle thing... the shoulder pads *shouldn't* be any larger than the ones on any of the other sisters they've done, though I suppose they might've needed bigger ones to accommodate the pose?

Edit: Definitely using this as the base of my Canoness... can't stand that weird robe the existing one has.

The Elite edition and Commander edition look identical in terms of models, the only difference seemingly being plastic terrain with the Commander edition.

This was expected, right? Unreleased Slave Ogryns aside, did anyone really think Escher would be getting two plastic kits when House of Blades is released. My question is about the weapon options we've seen. Will these come with multiple options or will those be sold as a fourth weapon set for Escher?

It's my hope that they're experimenting a bit and what we're going to see is a resin champions kit (the article does mention champions in the plural), with a number of weapon options and possibly a rearrange of the weapon sets sold to date. For one thing, if the champion shown hasn't been cast to be compatible with the plastics and existing resin packs, then they've really shot themselves in the foot.

And with the more limited options for gangers and juves now, in forgeworld's place I'd be splitting existing packs into those for gang hierarchy (leaders and champions) and those for gang fighters (everyone else). Admittedly that delineation gets murky around specialists but unless the Escher ones are getting more than the three special weapon options their Goliath counterparts have, I reckon it would be a straightforward division still.

But I suppose if it turns out to be a case of buying a resin champion that has two or three options per arm, then at least prices per kit will be lower. I don't feel we've seen enough extra parts to fill out another weapon set but that could just be down to the previews.

I can dig the new, more practical-lookin combat boots, though. Although to be honest, I kinda liked the old, combat stilettos too, so eh.

Also, is that a new combi-pistol, or is it supposed to be the same kind of needle rifle/boltgun combi-weapon they already have?

Probably more filler from the upcoming book. Bolt/needle pistol combi. We already have the stats (unless they make another exception), so they only need to make up a cost for 'new' content. Without any updates to the trading post, this will be strictly Escher only. Perhaps they add it to some new hired gun as well.

Right, this is more a notice for anyone who is near Warhammer World. I went over there today with a mate and while it's only shops open and full masked social distancing, I did notice they seem to have quite a lot of "OOP and Limited" stuff there!

So I picked up a 90s Jain Zar and a Ragnar. But they have 2 copies of Blackstone Fortress in there, a load of the Kill Team commander sets that were supposed to be OOP and some dice sets but possibly more interest to Necromuda fans they have 3 packs of the latest Goliath Tactics cards, five packs of CGC Tactics cards, six sets of CGC dice, four Enforcer dice sets, I think about three Enforcer Tactics card sets too. Also 4 sets of orange generic dice.

They also had two Underhive box sets in, three Dark Uprising, the plastic tiles, the barricades and original door sets too. Several of these don't appear on their websites now.

Loads of Blood Bowl stuff too, including cards and dice sets.

I'm not heading back any time soon but if there's anyone closer who can help any other Yaks out if they might want this stuff, or alternatively, maybe give them [Warhammer World] a call and see if they can post you one (after you've brought it obviously) then there you go.

Oh, 3 copies of the Realm of Chaos nurgle books, plus a few boxes of metal Sisters of Battle squads too.

I wonder if the new blood bowl orcs will supplant the gouged eye or just be a second orc gang. Same statement for the human team

I gotta say I reckon the gouged eye look way more bad arse than the black orks. Mind you the asthetic difference could just be highlighting their more organised nature. I prefer the new goblins though. I like the idea of a goblin team but I just didn't like the goblin team look.
