Echoes of the Long War


If you love Ghouls of all shapes sizes and color – this is your week.  Flying ghouls, little ghouls, medium ghouls, giant ghouls, ghoul kings.  I wonder who would win when the Ogors and the Flesh-Eater courts do battle.  It’s gonna be a mess no mater what.


What do you think? Are you ready for Nagash’s nasty minions to come to the 8 Realms in high style? 

  • Westdraygon

    Does anyone reckon if there will be an Aelf battletome at any stage?

    I love elves and they are my go to army in every setting. I would like to see a new Aelf faction in AOS.

    • hcls315

      Yes, where are the Elven? Although I don’t play it I am interested into where they’ve gone.

    • I imagine the Wanderers (Wood Elves) could be first up

  • Alexander Slizewski

    I can see that Games Workshop is getting desperate; releasing the ghoul king in a time like this is a sign that they are running out of breathing air.

    Soon my children, for when the breath of GW is last heard, we will emerge from the shadows where we’ve been forced to hide in. Kings of War will become the dominate table top game, along with the dark alliance we conjured with X-Wing Miniatures. It is only a matter of time before we stomp the remaining life out this empire known as GW, and indulge in the slaughter of all who play over priced 40k!

    • Byungwook Kim

      I see you fit very well to be a Ghoul-kings player.

      I was..well rather impressed how satisfying a release can be without a single new miniature.

      • Alexander Slizewski

        But it’s superior in every other regard. As you see in hobby stores across America, it has fully replaced Warhammer. Our infection slowly and surely continues to leak into the hearts and minds of table top gamers. Like a black slug, we move down consuming all that enter our grasp.

        • Statham

          Like a slug, will you also react particularly poorly to salt?

          • Alexander Slizewski

            You mean the salt of Warhammer fans who lost their beloved game? We grow from it.

          • Zack Seiders

            All I see is the ghoul subcategory in vampire counts become its own faction in the alliance of death.

          • RS TROUT

            Terrible insults do well to disguise peevish nature.

        • BaronSnakPak

          I have yet to see a single KoW mini in the flesh, let alone an entire game being played at any of the 3 flgs in my city.

          AoS, on the other hand, has been growing within the mini war gaming community.

          • Alexander Slizewski

            You filthy casual. Do you honestly think you could trick me with your shroud of lies? At my gaming community, age of sigmar is completely dead, trampled by the hoofs of X-Wing and Kings of War. And according to the rumormister himself, it continues to die across the nation.

            It is a symbol of failure for Games Workshop, and the erection of the Etherial Failcast upon their lawn serves to represent the death of their company.

          • sgoodell

            I think the only erection you have is at the sound of your own voice.

          • Alexander Slizewski

            You must be mistaken sir, the only erection I was referring to was the safe, non sexual definition of bringing up a statue. If you have the images of erections on your mind, particularly mine, I suggest you come out of the closet rather then posting that filth on this fine messaging board.

          • BaronSnakPak

            Games being played, and growing, in my area:
            – Xwing

            I’ve never heard anyone even mention KoW irl, or even on any of the local mini gaming online groups. None of their product is sold at any of the local gaming stores. The people in my city that like rank and file fantasy battles stick with WHFB 8th.

            It might be different in your area, but KoW is DOA in mine, and by comparison AoS is blowing it out of the water. Call me whatever names you want, but them’s the facts.

          • RS TROUT

            Stand fast brother you have my lance in this battle against the traitorous dogs whom endulge themselves with the “Age of Sigmar.” Long live the King and onwards for the lady brother.

          • Gunther Clone C

            This is the same for me as well! AoS will be around for a while. I love how fast the setup is without the use of points. 😀 And the scenarios are amazing fun.

          • Matthew Pomeroy

            I have seen neither, no AoS at the GW being played (that place is firm 40k turf) Kings of war is not even carried anywhere ( we d have sme mantic games at the main flgs, but its all on clearance already)

          • Alexander Slizewski

            This will change, as X-Wing and Kings of War will storm your hobby centers, crushing out the GW filth.

          • Matthew Pomeroy

            Xwing is played, its ok, but you have to like that kind of game. Spaceship dogfights are ok, but it can get old fast. warmachine and hordes gets a good amount of play, malifaux a little. I would guess Mantics problem here has less to do with the quality of the rules and more to do with distribution problems. They are kind of affordable, but I would not buy them as I personally dislike how they look, again not saying their bad, just saying I personally do not like them, wrath of kings is about the same, It and relic knights are just sitting around collecting dust.

      • minowaman

        With a good paint job kings of war minis are quite nice.

        • Alexander Slizewski

          Indeed they are brother, which is why you should join our cause in eliminating GW.

          • Erik Setzer

            GW’s not going anywhere. Nor should they. I might not agree with some of their decisions, but I think lack of competition in the marketplace would be disastrous. It’s how GW got so far off course.

          • minowaman

            Oh I am indeed down for the cause. GW has been in this game the longest, yet are somehow the worst at it, while simultaneously the most expensive. Inferior products should not prosper. Complacency is the death of innovation.

      • Steve R

        Mantic’s visual design just really puts me off their products.

    • minowaman

      While you are quite dramatic and verbose, I do agree 100% that kings of war and x wing are superior games to age Sigmar.

      • Alexander Slizewski

        Verbose? Of course, I must spread the word to all these peasants of how inferior GW is to its competitors. But dramatic? I am simply doing gods work brother. Nobody cares who I was until I put on the mask. But now I am able to watch this corrupt empire burn.

        The revolution will begin soon.

        • Matthew Pomeroy

          let me know when you “Mantic” folk start doing LOTR/Hobbit, until then, not interested.

    • Drpx

      So long as a single Space Marine player draws breath you will fail.

    • Aezeal


  • Wow…New detail to the Varghulf I believe

    • Spacefrisian

      Not realy, just a round base.

      • chuck_lapine

        Is the Vargulf still Finecast or did they re do it in plastic?

  • Byungwook Kim

    Go see the new rules for ghoul-kings units – they are really very good.

    Those man-bats used to have undesirable rules, now they are as good as sigmarine paladins.

    All the terrorgheist and zombie dragon variations have been upgraded.

  • Spacefrisian

    Guess it doesnt have a Tokyo ghoul ?

  • TheSalem777

    Could these be… the Tyranids of AoS??
