    That's a more promising cinematic. I would say that this is more indicative of at least some kind of focus on Death. I do hope that it's not as literal as it appears though and does not concentrate on a battle for a possessed village.

    Does anyone know any more information on the soul wars? From what I've read, black library are doing a series of books under that title next year but there isn't much more to go on.
    Also general consensus on TGA seems to be death are getting something in march, as this ties in with the release of the undying king novel and a new neferata novel although that's been taken off the website now.
    Would like to wish everyone a happy new year!

    Malign Portents has been revealed... sort of. It's an ongoing project.

    "Malign Portents isn’t just a website – it’s a continuing narrative that’ll allow you to take part in the most radical changes to Warhammer Age of Sigmar since the Storm of Sigmar. New empires will rise, war will rage and there are some surprises to look forward to"

    So GWs had a countdown timer for the malign portents for about 3 weeks. Once the clock hit zero, they tell us we have to wait six more weeks. It must be a destruction update because GW is trolling hard.

    On the plus side, I don't have to worry about about buying new models AND school books. On the down side, there's bound to be six more weeks of super ambiguous "hype." Even my LGS said that GW wants them to order Malign Portents but is giving up zero info about it actually is.

    They frustrated your hopes. Pretty fitting with the concept of malign portents, I'd say... xD

    I figured that whatever it was would be severely underwhelming. I just didn't think it would be essentially nothing.

    Be prepared for it to continue to be underwhelming. I'm all for teasers and hints, but dragging it out for so long like this is more annoying than tantalising.

    No problem. I've talked to more than one Death player who missed that Death itself is one of the six factions in the book.

    Hey guys, I set up a new thread dedicated to Legions of Nagash. I think we should continue all further discussion regarding the battletome there and we can keep generic AOS stuff in this thread.

    Pretty much. Let's keep fingers crossed.

    It looks also like the cape of one of the new plague marines from the starter box, so while I'm also hopeful, it doesn't really mean that much. But there's another rumor engine that depicts something that looks like a part of a gibbet - I think it's more promising. If that's not a terrain piece, of course ;)

    It makes me wonder if Tyrion, Teclis, and Malerion will be getting new models.

    I guess this is possible, so fingers crossed. If Morathi and Alarielle already have, than with other major elven releases I think we can expect them too.

    I hope they will release a huge model of Teclis... at that point, I will field my old metal model, using the new rules but keeping him out of sight, behind a line of infantry. :innocent:

    I would have preferred Tyrion to stay dead, he came across as a massive arse in the end times novels.

    Not a very inspiring behavior for a god, is it not :)
