I never doubted that they will come out, only wondered if Intel shared the picture a bit too early ;)

Either way, the trailer is awesome!

2 interesting facts:
1) Arkhan is one of the 4 legendary lords available for tomb kings. He bro-fists VCs (diplomacy-wise), while other TKs hate the vamps (little surprise here).
2) TK campaign is about collecting all 9 books of Nagash and then winning the battle for the Black Pyramid.

I am looking forward to watching Lionheartx10's run through this campaign in 2018. Total Warhammer 2 has a number of improvements over Total Warhammer 1, but apart from the High Elves, none of the races have been of interest to me. This is no surprise, as I never liked Dark Elves, Skaven, and Lizardmen when I used to play Warhammer either, so it's great to see Tomb Kings being added so soon, especially given how good the trailer was.

Yeah, it's definitely cool to see Luthor Harkon get this kind of attention. I had to look it up and found that all the stuff in the trailer are actually part of the army list - there's a lot more to it than I thought!

I'm not into pirates, so this doesn't interest me as much, but I'm happy for other people - many seem to be happy with this one. Still, I was confused the whole time I watched the trailer, because they managed to find something even more obscure than Chaos Dwarfs, Dogs of War or Araby and then do that :rolleyes: I would like some evil dwarfs or ogres, but maybe that'll come later ;)

I was initially excited, but the trailer left me having mixed emotions. On the one hand, I like the setting, the narrative of recovering or pilfering trinkets from the Lizardmen, and the zombie pirates. On the other, I really did not warm to the constructs or sea creatures. This is meant to be a splinter faction of the Vampire Counts after all, and ramshackle constructs and sea creatures don't sit well with me as a result.
