I love it because it's a exactly the sort of 9e model (durable melee) that Sisters were missing.

I feel almost like a Lumineth player though, I thought I had the whole army but it seems like they're going to dump a lot more down on me!

Cool looking minis, I'm guessing they're another dual build/single figure box? Nice to see GW are continuing the 'Transport this if you can!' theme. :lol:
They look like great models for talented painters to work on.

We got a couple of nice previews the other day as well:

A standard bearer for the Sisters, with optional better (or at least better-painted) helmeted head:

And a floaty musician for the Sylvaneth for AoS:

Aside from the "flutes do not work that way" energy on the tree elf ghost, I like 'em! I'm feeling a bit of big centerpiece model fatigue, but I guess if every army gets one or two, it adds up to a lot.

Very excited to drape the Sisters core troop castle in yet more OP auras!

The sister is fine. Not really feeling it, but imperial has never really been my jam. It’s a little meh if, as I suspect, the banner is sculpted on, as it’d be a great canvas for painters to practice freehand on/show off. But hey ho. It’s fine. Sylvaneth tootlepiper, otoh, I really like. I’m definitely a fan of the slightly creepy aspect of the sylvaneth. They’re kinda undead-adjacent, which is an interesting feel for elves. Quite Golgari, now I think of it. Or Witherbloom, if one is being all contemporary 🙄

That's MtG speak for creepy elves. :D

The aeioulf isn't really my thing to be honest. It's pretty cool, but not something I see myself buying. I like the sister, I'm getting some medieval, Joan of Arc style vibes from it. The heavy robes, impractical banner and the raised visor all make for a decent looking figure imho.

A bunch of new stuff for AoS on the Warhammer Fest reveal last night:

A huge Destruction centaur god:
Image

A fancy new Vargheist Centaur lord for the vampires, with both named-character and generic options:
Image
Image

And a leveled-up version of the big bad from Cursed City:
Image

Plus a couple days ago they showed a new painboss for the Orks:
Image

Which is a fun callback to this oldhammer classic:
