The new Gryph-Cavarly aren’t the only newStormcast Eternals on the horizon!
Earlier today we saw the new hotness from GW:
A few days back, some of you Gryph-eyed readers noticed that in our post on the new Stormcast Vanguard Chamber we mentioned that they were expert cavalrymen. But what would a fast moving strikeforce of Stormcasts ride into battle?
They are too big for horses, that’s for sure. Dracoths are sturdy mounts, but they are not the fastest beasts in the Realms, and hardly suited for a fast, scouting force. Enter the Gryph-charger – a noble beast of the Celestial Realm and trusty mount to Sigmar’s Vanguard.
Lord Aquilor on Gryph-charger
The Gryph-charger is clearly of the same origin as Gryph-hounds, whether magical or biological, but of an order of magnitude larger. It stands taller than a Demigryph, though is less stockily built – looking sleeker and faster than the noble mounts of the Freeguild Knights.
The Stormcast himself is wearing armour in keeping with the lighter sigmarite plate of the new Stormcast Eternals Rangers we saw on Monday, but more ornate. This hero is in fact a Lord-Aquilor, who are the leaders of this new breed of Stormcast Eternals.
He is just one of the new kits that will be accompanying the new Stormcast Eternals Battletome in February.
These guys look like more badass heavier versions of the Judicators (below), with REALLY large braced crossbows.
Then we hit these guys who are clearly on different slightly smaller mounts than the Lord Aquilor above. I assume these are the “standard Gryph-Charger knights”. Also note the weapon holstered on the far right rider. It looks like we have a winner from an earlier Warhammer weekly teaser. Remember this pic?
I’m really liking the new cav, and I think it’s time to talk about the elephant in the room…
