I’m digging the new Tzeentch line-up. I really want to check out Big Bird Himself, but the Ogroid Thamaturge has been haunting me ever sense Silver Tower!

 

Watch the Birdy…Change is coming.

  • Burnt Angel

    I’m loving everything I see, apart from the Tzeentch dice which look pretty horrible to me (and I love me some new dice). I’m sure the small blobs/digits would be a pain to read on the tabletop.

    • ZeeLobby

      Ouch. Those do look pretty horrible. Man. GW really needs to hire a new dice designer. Lol

      • rtheom

        Yeah, they certainly aren’t dice that you can roll in large masses, but they’ll work fine enough for leadership checks and the like, things that only require one or two dice at a time.

        • ZeeLobby

          Games take long enough as is, lol. I wouldn’t use them just so my opponents wouldn’t have to suffer as I explained what every roll meant. They are just aweful. It’s an area where they really should have improved by now.

  • qball8101216

    I’m loving this stuff, beautiful models as always. However, I’m REALLY wanting the blue horror and brimstone horrors to come out. Maybe with the big blue bird in a week????

  • ZeeLobby

    Is it weird that I like the cultists way more than the Tzangors?

    • Hussein Alobaidi

      I too prefer the Cultists, whats with the Fatemaster, its a £25 web store exclusive :S so expensive

      • Emperor’s Champion

        25 quid for that!? it’s not even a new model, i’ve played tzeentch for a long time now and avoided that model like the plague it’s such a lazily designed piece and honestly I’d rather just use the gaunt summoner models as stand in sorcerers.

        • Aezeal

          Ah re-release.. that is what I though.. it did look like an old model… an UGLY old model… I think the flames on GW models the last 25 years have been sculpted better … looks like its been made by PP.

    • Emperor’s Champion

      yeah, I like the acolytes too, so happy they come with those awesome shields as well.

    • Matt Craufurd

      Perfect for Thousand Sons Cultists as well.

      • ZeeLobby

        You read my mind. Depending on how 8th shakes out, 1K Sons may be my first new army in a while.

    • Aezeal

      Well they both have the same aethetic which will look really good together on the table. I think they’d be a good basis for conversion for 40K Tzeenthc cultist too (I don’t play 40K so no idea if that would be a viable option… only read about wordbearers and alpha legion as viable starting points for cultist builds and that would exclude Tzeentch I guess).

      Anyway.. they both look good.. and I really like the extras on the champ etc. I’d rate them equally though.

      • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

        because they have a two hand weapon option it would be easy, just cut one sword off and replace with pistol.

    • Aezeal

      How do you rate them vs the Silver tower acolytes. They are some what different. I’m not sure I think the extra armor on these guys are a real improvement. I’m certain I like the hand weapon in the silver tower kit better, those pickax like weapons and the way to curvy scimitar like things looked very good.. these weapons are a bit more standard (though still curvy I guess).

      • ZeeLobby

        I thought the silver tower ones were a little more dynamic. But yeah. Not a fan of too much armor on tzeentch stuff anyway. I think I would have cried I’d they had mutated arm shields or weapons.

  • SupPupPup

    I hope they release Lord of Change rules and maybe an extra adventure for Silver Tower.

  • Ve Ly Pè

    The “Curse-ling” looks like he had once been a Stormcast. Yes, I know they are younger than this mini…

    • Golden Yak

      Cool idea though, like some kind of Chaos entity ‘infesting’ the magic of a Stormcast’s body and bursting out of the armor as a fleshy monster. But yeah, lore for the Curseling is bound to be something else since he pre-dates the Stormcast.

  • Nyyppä

    In AoS, which is better, LoC or the Fateweaver?

  • Golden Yak

    Ogroid looks so awesome, more kinds of ogroids please.

  • euansmith

    I like the Cursling’s magical sword.

  • AnomanderRake

    They’re not even trying to make the dice readable anymore, are they?

    • Xodis

      The 1Ksons dice was awesome…not sure what happened here. Even the Khorne dice w/ Rolling cub were better than this.

    • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

      thats the fifth way to play Warhammer, the dice are just missiles, you shoot them at your opponents minis with the Dicechukkerskullsmashapult (TM).

  • Xodis

    Yeah, I wanted those dice until I saw them….Ill pass.

  • Aezeal

    The dice are hard to read (as in see what you rolled).
    The color schemes are also odd. The dark version just doesn’t have enough contrast.. and the lighter version is just hurting my eyes.

  • Aezeal

    The acolytes are awesome. Nice beaked masked.. wannabe Tzaangors. Nice bird on the champ, nice scroll on the standard (scroll) bearer (well I guess that will be his role).

    The Thaumaturg and the Summoner I really like ever since the Silver Tower. They are awesome and though I’d not have thought of an huge sorcerer he just hits all the right marks for me, still looking like a sorcerer while being a monstrous creature.
    The fatemaster seems somewhat subpar to me.. is it a re-release of an older model? The heavy mask is kinda ugly and those flames are down right ugly for a new model.

    The curseling looks better I guess from a technical poitn of view.. but I just don’t dig his vibe. Bulky like the nurgle big infantry like last year.. I guess I’d like a bit more slender warriors for Tzeentch.

    • Alpharius

      Both the cursling and fate master are old models.

    • Ak318

      I was planning on maybe using one of the new exalted scorcerors of tzentech from 1k sons instead of the fatesummoner model.
