Can they even spin metal at scale anymore? Or will any old figures be the similar to the week-long releases they have been doing this last year?

I'd hate to see the prices of any of their latest stuff in metal. Such gigantic pieces.

Agreed.
Looks like the same aesthetic will be used, so I am another losing interest in the 'Old' World.....
If it's not actually old world then it isn't going to get my money.  Seems dumb.  Do old world or sell AOS and ignore the old world.

Yep, shut their factory as well as stores. I was hoping to convert some of the new escher minis during the lockdown, but I guess nothing will be being released for a while.

On the Kislevs: I can live with ice weapons if they're magical items that characters have. In any case that female warrior has excellent necromunda conversion potential!

I'd hate to tray and get it all glued together.  Lots of pinning.

I think they are for a special ice queen guard. They are some sort of wizard themselves as well. I imagine like the old light wizard acolytes.

Because nothing says Elf like bull horns, massive hammers and a giant minotaur carrying little mountains on its shoulders.

Fabius Bile didn't change much, another case of not really being able (or not needing) to improve a classic Jes Goodwin design :)
a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.

They are mountain spirits. There is an earth theme that runs through some of the models and it is getting expressed more evidently in these larger models. The elves with the hammer are guardians for the mountain spirits or they fight with them... something like that.

The horns and emblem on their helmets is a bit extreme though. A shorter version of it might not have seemed so odd.

I do rather like the big guys though. Too bad I'll never be able to afford them
