I really really like these Elven troops  :-*
I can only agree that  These are a proper replacement for the old ones (I never bought!)
Let‘s hope the scale fits well to the Blood Island stuff;)
These days it's Wargods I am working on !

It might just be the paintjob, but those elves (sorry, aelves  o_o) are really making me think of one of the Warcry factions.

Agree about putting Teclis on a flight-stand too.

Some of the high elves look nice to me - not sure about the legs on the horses though.. Theres just something about them...

Mind you, the same could be said about all the recent horses GW do so it's probably me :)

I don't like the Teclis model though - the rather large crescent moon/horns on the helmet just look ridiculous...… I guess all the high Elf buildings must have 'T' shaped doorways

Apologies if this has been shared before. Came across these by accident and found it useful.

Details the contents of the Warhammer: Conquest magazine.

This link details the contents of Warhammer: Mortal Realms magazine.

What I particularly liked was that they tried to calculate the value of the contents in each magazine.

New Goliath brutes and Juves have been previewed for Necro. Can't stand the brutes. Juves are kinda interesting - possibly one male and one female body? Hard to tell.

I wonder why the Juves aren't armed with basic pistols and pipes...they seem to be carrying the heavier equipment.

The Brutes would make good Orks.

New Ogre and Nurgle Underworlds are up for preorder as well. I'll be getting that ogre (quite like the nurgle ones too though!). Not for underworld but for the generic army.

The Brute looks like he comes from The World Eaters' home world.

Games Workshop's sculptures have an unhealthy obsession with sewing machines, as shown by one of the juves.

I agree, I thought juves were cheap choices with cheap weapons.

I hate autocorrect.

I agree abt the Orkish element. Still a terrible model though  :) In the old Freebooterz book you could take human mercs who wanted to be Orks. Always thought Goliaths should have been like that (just as confrontation-era Bratts model themselves on Eldar).

As for the Juves, I think they're meant to be factory workers trying out for the gang, or something? So they bring their tools with them - haven't graduated to having proper weapons yet.

Mr Smurf: that is some excellent autocorrect there  :D

Agree, brute looks ordinary, but juves are nice. I've been thinking of doing a space Luddite gang: they'd fit nicely.

Brutes might look better with different paintjob really - this one is not serving them well.

Of coursejuves (or prospects) have to be shown week after Ive built my juve from CorpseGrinder  lol

I hardly noticed the Necromunda figs with the announcement of Tau aircraft for Aeronautic Imperialis. Finally decent aircraft for my Epic Tau force.

Weird, the Goliath Juves are called Forge-Born Prospects, that are trying to get in the gang, so not Juves yet :/

So they have heavy/special weapons, then become Juves and are given pistols instead? Will need to look through the book when I gets it.

Those Brutes are Stimmers - IIRC, Xtreme Goliaths probably larger and might be Specialist Champions - and come on a 40mm bases and the juves can be used as juves or prospects, a level below juve on 25mm bases. ;D

House of Chains will be another supplement... ::)

So...every gang is getting their own Codex then? Seems a bit much.

I don't like the idea of tiny guys carrying big weapons...surely the young'uns wouldn't be trusted or have the strength to wield them.
