First off we see the “standard” model: a Drakesworn Templar

drakesworn-templar-rules

Next up is the big hero version: a Lord-Celestant on Stardrake

celestant-stardrake-rules

 

Ok, so on the templar you get the rules for all four weapons options.

Cavernous Jaws just eats models whole and can do it multiple times a turn!  SO AWESOME!

For the Lord Celestant, the Lord of the Celestial Host will buff up your entire Extremis Chamber force on the table. (so buy a LOT of them)

The new kit will cost $140 and goes on advanced order March 19th.

New AoS Dragon Roundup

Go look, MORE PICs!

~ Yeah – this thing takes models off the table like an Age of Sigmar titan!

    Oh the boredom and apathy for all things Stormcast Eternal related.

    • Jared Swenson

      You’re apparently not bored or apathetic enough to not comment on Stormcast Eternal related things.

      • vlad78

        That’s the exact opposite, if he wasn’t bored he wouldn’t have the time to post his comment.

        • Dennis Finan Jr

          Nope. If he was apathetic then he wouldnt of bothered to read the article , nonetheless even comment! He would of showed his apathy better by not commenting at all!

          • dave long island

            LOL.. Boredom and apathy are not mutually exclusive to communicating your feelings thereof. Very amusing, though ridiculous argument you’ve made. Thanks for that, lol.

          • Dennis Finan Jr

            Sorry man, you failed. You used both words in the same sentence then tell me im wrong, lol. If there was such a lack of interest you wouldnt even of posted. Its really simple. You wouldnt of paid any attention to it and then take time to comment. O the irony of interest in the lack of interest of something

          • dave long island
        • Xodis

          Because the “popular” articles like 40K have zero comments because everyone is too busy to comment right?

    • Geko747

      Why don’t you find something you are actually interested in to pass the time then? Would make far more sense than trolling things you hate. I for one love the Stormcasts and think the model range is amazing so far.

      • blackbloodshaman

        some of us are interested in commenting on bad miniatures and rulesets. its like mst3k

        • BaronSnakPak

          And some of us like beautiful miniatures and rules that don’t require a 300 page rulebook and 3 hours to play a game.

          • blackbloodshaman

            isn’t freedom great?

          • BaronSnakPak

            It is, though I’m not sure why you’d use your freedom to click on every AoS article to tell everyone how much you hate it.

            I don’t know what you’re trying to accomplish, other than phishing for like votes from your fellow anti-AoS/GW crowd.

          • blackbloodshaman

            And I’m not sure why you’d use your freedom to click on every AoS article to defend this vile product, from people who dont like it

            I don’t know what you’re trying to accomplish, other than phishing for like votes from your fellow pro-AoS/GW crowd. But thats the nature of freedom

          • Rasmus Høgh Nørskov

            I agree with blackbloodshaman.

            We have freedom of speech. Some people agree with the topic, others disagree. That is perfectly fine, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

            For instance, I like the Stormcast for many of the same reasons that some dislike them, but I do not attack everyone that has a different opinion than mine. I just state my opinion and move on.

            But to stereotype people is wrong. Just because some criticize AoS or SC does not make them all “haters”, and just because I am mostly fond of AoS and SC does not make me a fanboy. I have my positive parts and my negative parts about the new models as well.

            The important part is that we express our opinion. If people do not share their opinon on the matter, we would never know how the community felt overall :).

            Sorry for making this a boring speech, but I felt it needed to be stated. We are all tabletop gamers here, and there is room for everyone!

          • Alhazred TheMad

            No, he s a hater and a troll. Look at his comments, it’s like a trail of brown following the rear end of a horse.

          • BaronSnakPak

            I click on the articles because AoS interests me, and I go to the comments to have discussions about it. I couldn’t care less about vote counts, or trying to convince others how good or bad something is.

            But, more often than not, there you are, claiming it’s a “vile product” or that it’s insulting to you, which is nonsense. It’s a ruleset that you don’t like, it’s not some evil entity, peeing in your cheerios. WHFB had what, 7 or 8 iterations before AoS? 40k is on it’s 7th edition. GW has clearly established a pattern of changing the rules, so either adapt and play the new rules, stick with the old rules and play with like-minded people, wait for the next edition, or move on entirely.

            No new model for this edition is going to change the game’s rules, so you’re always going to hate it. And if they did change the rules entirely , you’d most likely complain about how much you hate the minis. You’re literally bringing nothing new or of substance to the discussion at this point. Doesn’t it get tiring, beating the same dead horse?

          • blackbloodshaman

            First of all I don’t universally dislike GW products, I did say the genestealer cults were cool. Second I only criticize products that deserve it, and yes I believe criticism adds as much to the discussion as “shut up and take my money”

          • BaronSnakPak

            But your criticism is the same thing every time (albeit with new melodramatic adjectives), it’s not adding anything other than repetition. It’s almost as if your intent is to just get attention by repeating the same tired cliches instead of having an actual dialogue.

            You’ve made your point already, now you’re just dragging the same dead horse around. Don’t like Stormcast Eternals/AoS? Cool, that’s fine, but going to every Stormcast/AoS article to proclaim your distaste for them is getting old fast. Not every game, or every faction of every game, is going to appeal to everyone, but that doesn’t make them vile or repugnant. It just means it’s not to your taste. Accept it, and move on.

            I do agree with you about “shut up and take my money” though, it’s another meme that brings nothing new to the table.

          • blackbloodshaman

            consider articles have “prepare your wallets” and “shutup and take my money” as titles my posts are pretty appropriate. if you find them boring by all means ignore them.
            isnt freedom great?

          • BaronSnakPak

            Internet writers using cliched headlines doesn’t mean the only content of said articles is “shut up and take my money”. They usually show new pictures and give details on new products that weren’t previously wide-known.

            My point about that particular meme was people in the comments section, where it literally is the entirety of their post.

            Also, repeating “freedom is great” does nothing to dispel the fact that you do in fact repeat the same tired cliches, it just reaffirms it.

          • blackbloodshaman

            ah yes commence the vicious personal attacks

          • BaronSnakPak

            Ah yes, commence playing the victim and melodramatic adjectives.

            You’re free to hate on AoS on every article, just like I’m free to tell you it’s overplayed and cliched at this point. We got it a long time ago, you’re not a fan of this game and it’s toys, but it’s not some personal affront to you like you seem to imply it is with words like “vile”. Accept the fact that it’s not to your tastes and move on, or contribute with something new.

            Feel free to hold a grudge, I’m just trying to save you the time and energy spent on it when you could be reading about/discussing things you enjoy instead.

          • blackbloodshaman

            You’re free to make vicious personal attacks about anyone who says something about AoS which you dont like. just like I’m free to tell you it’s overplayed and cliched at this point to complain about criticism of GW. We got it a long time ago, you’re a fan of this game no matter what they do, but it’s not some personal affront to you when I say this game is “vile”. Accept the fact that my criticism is not to your tastes and move on, or contribute with something new, or just don’t read my posts.

            Feel free to hold a grudge, I’m just trying to save you the time and energy spent on it when you could be reading about/discussing things you enjoy instead.

          • BaronSnakPak

            Ah yes, commence the internet troll version of “I know you are but what am I ?”

            “Vicious personal attacks” “vile product”

            You take things way too seriously, especially for someone who says they don’t care about AoS, and are surprisingly unable to handle criticism despite your advocacy for it.

          • blackbloodshaman

            see you next time i choose to excercise my freedom. enjoy yours in good health

          • Richard Mitchell

            Maybe some people click on the articles because they are excited and comment because when they see the content they are disappointed.

          • BaronSnakPak

            Which is understandable, Shaman on the other hand, goes to practically every AoS article to say essentially the same thing. It’s an exercise in repetition.

          • Alhazred TheMad

            Your an a$.$ hat. Your in here leading the charge over and over again like the KKK of plastic men. Go be productive some other way, like walking in traffic after signing your donor card.

  • LordRao

    And the Same. Two. Damn. Pictures. Neither of which shows the left wing…

    • Byungwook Kim

      Here

      • Crevab

        and now we know they have alternate heads

        • Spacefrisian

          Time for a new article…breaking news, new pictures found on our own site that we can now use for 3 more articles….something like that.

          • BaronSnakPak

            They did that yesterday.

      • dave long island

        “The Flying Cabbage” much like the ‘Eavy Metal Team’s original paint job on the pewter Zombie Dragon, way back in the day.

      • euansmith

        Is their a side view?

    • dave long island

      Typical media, and their hidden left wing agenda.

      • Stan

        Hidden?

        • dave long island

          Yeah, see, ’cause the post I replied to included the comment that the left wing wasn’t shown. Ergo hidden. Feel free to contact me if you need me to explain any other jokes… lol..

  • Aezeal

    The bigger the more important it is they don’t get shot down before they see action.. I mean the damage out put is insane .

  • Mr.Gold

    yay (not) another new unit with a 3+ save rerolling ones, this time with the added bonus of when he passes a save he causes mortal wounds on the enemny…

    • PinkyandtheBrain

      I don’t see why that is inherently a bad thing. Compared to say a Bastilodon which ignores Rending all together… Just take that into account why balancing your game.

  • Agent OfBolas

    the paintjob on second picture is insane.

    • Antoine Henry

      Photoshop, i am pretty sure it has not been painted, like almost every pictures they provide now. Just photoshop…

      • ZeeLobby

        It does seem that a lot of their latest stuff seems to have a very block transparent filter applied to a grey model.

  • Duncan Barber

    GO! GO! GO! BREAKING! UNBOXED! SPOTTED! Can you guys please STOP! trying to MAKE! this a THING!

    This is a website for nerds who like toy soldiers. His ain’t buzz feed.

    • It’s a bit like buzz feed but for nerds who like toy soldiers though…

    • Dave Scammell

      I’ve never quite worked out what the “GO! GO! GO!” Thing is about… I mean, they sometimes do it when they can’t be bothered to translate some leaked German White Dwarf and theyre asking their readers to do it for them (as all good journalists do), but outside of that it really doesn’t make any sense? Go where? Into the article? Shouting ‘go’ at us isn’t going to make us any more interested in the subject matter. Go preorder? Go play with the rules? These aren’t things we can do yet. Go look at the rules? Okay… but there’s no need for such a hurry. Especially for Stormcast rules…

      • Ben_S

        I assumed they were telling us to go go-go dancing…

      • ZeeLobby

        Go pre-order/buy them. That’s what it means 99% of the time.

        • blackbloodshaman

          it shows bols has a sense of shame about these things and just couldnt bring themselves to say prepare your wallets or shut up and take my money

  • Go go sigmarine go!

  • Deathwing

    What a great model… for about 90-100 bucks.
    140 bucks? Lol pass. Stop being stupid people.

  • blackbloodshaman

    If GW were Elvis Presely, they would firmly be in the Vegas Fat Elvis stage now.

  • Rasmus Høgh Nørskov

    I have said before that I love the Star-Drake, especially the wings and heads.

    But there are two things concerning me about the model:

    1. I am not approving of the legs yet. Perhaps if I see 360 view I can get the point, but from the angles we’ve been given, it looks wrong and it bothers me. Nothing that can’t be altered.

    2. The price is on the same level as Archaeon. Archaeon is a lone Hero model, and the massive detail on him makes him a worthy 1-time purchase. But it seems like they are trying to convince us to buy serveral Drakes. That becomes a really expensive adventure of 560$ for 4 models, and I can understand it make´s people cringe.

    I am glad that my store gives me 20% discount on all purchases :D. I still like the model, but I would probably only get one.

  • flyingtam

    I like it! Anytime my Space Mah… Sigmarites can ride a dragon into battle is awesome! And those rules aren’t too shabby. The Lord Celestant is very much an anti-infantry model. He might struggle a bit against another hero or monster.
