According to the fluff, Slaanesh is currently MIA, but his faction is still extant as of the latest Chaos Grand Alliance book. Nothing new, but still all the old troops from Warhammer, with some Special Characters turned into generic heroes these days. Slaanesh could be a fantastic looking army with conversions/proxies from various other miniature lines. For example, this model from the Hel Dorado line:What about slaanesh? They were always my favorite chaos faction.
Very cool that AoS is bringing in people from 40k. It's weird that in RPGs i prefer Sci Fi to fantasy yet in wargaming it's the other way.I never played Fantasy, but Chaos is my favourite army in 40K so I figured why change? Also my wife nabbed the Stormcast stuff out of the box.
If they work so well together then I'm going to keep my hopes up that we get a Plaguebound or something. Nurgle is very much my boy.Bloodbound and Slaves play reasonably well together, you can make most of the Slaves list Khorne and it'll get the Bloodsecrator buff, which is pretty handy.
I definitely hope this is true and not as Doom says.My personal theory on Slaanesh is that they're retooling the line aesthetically for a rerelease down the line somewhere.
Dammit I can't afford another army, I can't even really afford one, but airship Man O' War Dwarfs is something I don't think I can resist. I'll have to go looking up the rumours on those. Cheers for the heads up.Bit of that, plus steampunk airship pirates. So I'm told.
That's a beautiful Mini. Slaanesh was always my Second favourite Chaos god (or 3rd behind Hashut) and more aesthetics like that would certainly help his case.Slaanesh could be a fantastic looking army with conversions/proxies from various other miniature lines. For example, this model from the Hel Dorado line:
I love how they've divvied Undead up. Looking forward to them all getting expanded on.They're definitely retooling Slaanesh. Fo defs.
I like the new starters. My wife bought ghosts and I bought skellingtons so we can fight each other or join up.
In general, rumour has it that GW is downplaying Slaanesh these days specifically to appeal to a younger audience.
My personal theory on Slaanesh is that they're retooling the line aesthetically for a rerelease down the line somewhere.
Yeah, the "squatting Slaanesh to make the game kid-friendly" is just a rumour, and not one to which we should give credence. It seems like a deliberate narrative choice - the return of Slaanesh is going to be A Storyline Thing later on.They're definitely retooling Slaanesh. Fo defs.
