Hopefully he'll paint more to post more (God knows that didn't work for me). We can only hope...
Let's kick this off with Age of Sigmar.
Plenty of news came out of Warhammer Fest today.
The new edition will be released in the second half of June. Up until then, they will release daily articles on the Warhammer Community like they did with 8th Edition. There is a FAQ already.
It will be a ln evolution, not a revolution, in regards to the rule changes. No more shooting out of combat, changes to the turn sequence.
They showed new Stormcast forces of pure casters facing of with the forces of Death. Videos are on the Warhammer TV Youtube channel.
Forgeworld showed of a new dragon model for chaos.
Cinematic Sorcery will come with spells that stay on the battlefield.
The mortal realms will be further established through maps making the world more tangible.
For the community, GW is publishing the Hammerhal Herald which sound similar to the Regimental Standard, as well as a webcomic.
Additional announcements apropos of Age of Sigmar.
(I love alliteration)
The Warhammer Community will publish a podcast with a focus on Warhammer: Age of Sigmar.
If I were a betting man, I'd wager there would be one coming for Warhammer 40.000 as well.
Also, Games Workshop is working on a trading card game that is a mix between physical and digital cards, called Warhammer Champions.
The URL that is featured on the posters is up, but doesn't show much, except for a newsletter sign up.
Quick round up of the news for Warhammer 40k out of Adepticon 2018
1. The next 3 Codices have been announced. GW assured those without a codex that their patience will be rewared. All three are for forces with pretty new models, so no real need to bring out new models.
The Deathwatch will be able to use Primaris Space Marines. Not really surprising.
What was surprising is a new model for the Imperial Knights
2. There is a new chassis coming. The Castellan-class Imperial Knight. It looks quite a bit bigger with different exhausts (recently teased on the rumor engine).
The Armiger will also come as a stand alone kit with additional weapon options. Rumor has it, that additional variants of Knights are still to come, but nothing concrete
3. In support of the world wide independent Warhammer events, Games Workshop will release event exclusive models. The picture shows a concept for the kind of miniature that could come out starting next year.
4. The next announcement comes in form of a list building tool. Roll Call is a free web based tool to build Warhammer 40.000 armies based on power level. This will be rebuilt as a mobile app with official branding. Another app is in the pipeline to build your list using points. No word on price or payment-plans.
5. In the last couple of years, something happened. It happened to the stance of Games Workshop as a company in regards to its public communication, community interaction, releases, previews. Honestly, it does seem like the best time to be a Warhammer player, is now.
And with that, PLASTIC SISTERS OF BATTLE! They. Are. Coming. And those are some great news. I think they look cool and the recent Death Guard releases show the advancements in plastic miniature technology. What tickles my fancy is the the fact that this announcement came SO FAR in advance and the plan to preview the Codex in the next Chapter Approved book so the players can test their rules and give feedback. That is something I've fantasized about for quite a while.
Hope this overview helps you with all the news that came out of Adepticon 2018
