Alas! The time shall come next Thursday! Glories of the Aelves shall be unveiled then!

I've removed the post on the same subject from the other topic, as crossposting is against the forum rules (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?action=rules).

The new picture and the teaser of the weapons looks very promising.  While I have never really been that interested in High Elves, I have always liked Teclis because of his magical prowess.  I will be very interested to see what the final model looks like.  I am sure that it will be more dynamic than previous incarnations.

I agree, though I've always loved the High Elves and their lore. I too cannot wait for this model to be unveiled. I literally cannot wait to see what's around the corner for the Asur of Hysh!

Well, I don't really count my Dark Elves, since they weren't built with AoS in mind.

But Cities of Sigmar is very tempting.

I imagine Dark Elves maybe wrapped up with the Malerion faction when they get their release at some point. I guess we'll know when the High Elves are revealed.

I look forward to getting them back. It feels weird having these other elven factions that's sort-of-derived from the high elves around without having the OGs, imho. Although I fully expect them to ludicrously overdesigned as is the AoS norm. Still, serrated pseudo-phalaxes of gleaming not-Noldor does awaken fond memories. (well, I've got Warhammer Total War to tide me over, so not so distant memories, but I'm interested in what they've got cooking for physical sculpts).

I'm always down for a new Aelef faction to come out. I wonder what the models will look like. There was some hints in the deepkin battletome about the Hyshian Aelves.

Apparently there is a Sons of Behemot faction coming out soon too, so that'll be cool to see. A Gargant army. Hopefully there is a teaser of that tonight as well.

So, those Lumineth Realm-Lords, I am loving them and will be investing in them. Seeing as how I'll be selling my Sylvaneth (whole other topic...) I'm going to start small (try to lol) with these guys when they release and see how I like them.

I love each of these units, they look great. The ONLY thing that kind of sticks out as wierd to me is honestly... Teclis himself. The Mount is gorgeous! But something just looks off about Teclis. I wish they gave him the Eidolon-Leaping-through-the-air pose rather than the weird one they've chosen.

I don't know, I'll have to look at the actual model when it releases. Loving his cape though!

Post by: Calamity on January 24, 2020, 04:58:42 AM
Iím blown away, again.  The miniatures GW pumps out these days are stunning.  I think what I like most about these guys is, theyíre still just Ďhigh elvesí...just massively improved looking high elves.  Simple straight forward fantasy troops; spearman, horse riding cavalry and a wizard.  With all the wackier stuff AoS has in it now, thatís actually kind of refreshing and will be a good contrast.  Bonus points if they get their repeater bolt throwers and chariots back!

Amen to that.

The model that is a hollow suit of armour is my favourite, closely followed by the terrain piece.

I have to agree with Myen'Tal about the Teclis model though as Teclis doesnít appear to be the focus of the diorama.

Yeah, they made him really off-center, when they should have gave him the flying pose that he has in the art, off the back of his sphinx.

The Sphinx itself is really awesome! And I think Teclis' face looks a little strange... because of how GW painted it lol. They kind of did the same thing with Sisters of Battle without the helmets on. Should look better once we tackle it ourselves ;D.

@ Alienscar and MyeníTal

Agreed.  Heís both off center and the pose isnít the best either.  Plus, heís got a shovel face thing going  on. 

...and when I look at his pants, I hear Canít Touch This playing in my head...

I agree that Teclis looks weird, but I never liked his model anyway (nor his fluff) and the odds of me taking him were slim regardless. The rest of those models, though, are beautiful indeed! They need a little more variety I think (I'd like some generic heroes, some generic monsters, a chariot, etc.), but it all looks very promising.

Oh I think we're definitely getting a Idoneth-scale-if-not-larger release! Just like the Bonereapers, which underwent event previews for quite a few months before their release because of the size of their range.

I think it maybe a similar case for the Lumineth Realm-Lords (Gods, that name is an absolute mouthful :P... kind of like pointy ears better lol).

Post by: magenb on January 24, 2020, 07:30:29 PM
oh hell yes, that's a freaking awesome model
(http://i.imgur.com/sKXioQD.jpg) (https://imgur.com/sKXioQD)


I don't mind the pose for Teclis, it would look better if he was by himself, the BIG problem is the giant thing on his head, its just too impractical and looks dumb. The mount looks awesome but for the head, a straight up mythical beast would have looked better. As is big swing big miss for me.

The spearmen look great, I'm expecting to see a lot of custom dire averngers hit the web real soon :)

soo want to stick the horsemans banner on the back of an exarchs shinning spears bike..


But yeah those spearmen and Cavalry look amazing, loving the colour scheme too.


Eltharion.. soo freaking cool.
Title: Re: Lumineth Realm-Lords (And LVO AoS Stuff)
Post by: Sir_Godspeed on January 24, 2020, 08:32:17 PM
Well, I was right about them sticking to the increased horizontality that's become typical of AoS, and the increased level of details. There's no denying that they look good though - and I love the hollow armor and the Sphinx in particular.

The armor detailing actually REALLY reminds me some Rackham figures from back in the day:

(https://cadwallon.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/400x/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/l/i/ligm03_copy.jpg)

(https://cadwallon.com/media/catalog/product/l/i/lice01_copy.jpg)

The sculpt is a lot more advanced of course, but the whirly elevated edges and details struck a chord.

I will admit that I somewhat miss some straight-up pointy helmets a-la classic spearmen or silver helms for that clean, straight-backed look, but I suppose those days are gone.

It's still a valuable IP I guess, lol. But jokes aside, I am quite pleased to hear that, though given the long waiting time I'm keeping my expectations fairly low - I'm not sure it will entail much beyond just a limited "print on demand" miniature range or maybe just some prepackaged battalions or something. Staying sober on this one.

Actually I think in this view it is Celenaar's headdress that is the big problem. That is the size of Celenaar's head and headdress seems too big when compared to Teclis.

I also think the unnatural pose of Teclis undermines the whole look of the diorama.

To be frank it smacks of sculpting by numbers if you get what I mean.

I wouldn't expect any old kits redone as everything will be new. Too be honest, the skycutter kit has aged pretty well.

I expect an archer kit, some kind of large kit (chariot or monster), and some kind of artillery for sure.

I think we'll definitely get swordmasters and maybe a kind of Ellyrion Reaver unit.

So far, the pointy aelves trailer revealed artwork for the old spearmen, archers, swordmasters, and Reavers.

So far, we have spearmen and archers redone. We know the Archers are coming because of a split second freeze in the Lumineth reveal video that coincides with a Warhammer Community rumor engine picture :). So I think we'll be getting a redone swordmaster unit (which I'm stoked for). For the Reavers, just make the new silver helms a dual kit  ;D.

Read those article, they've got some cool insights into the Lumineth. I don't think we'll see the really cool stuff though until the tome is out. I'm hoping we'll get more or the rest of the previews at the end of march at Adepticon.

Post by: Sir_Godspeed on February 12, 2020, 10:18:21 PM
I honestly prefer if they wait to unleash the majority until close before release. Drip-feeding until the actual release feels like an anticlimax is never that fun. IMHO.

It seems the Lumineth magically enhance themselves by consuming the energies of aetherquartz. Each time hey do so they become more powerful and gifted, but in turn they find their emotions drained with each consumption.

I also love this cavalry unit, as I've always loved Silver Helms and Dragon Princes. These guys definitely fulfill the role of Silver Helms to me. I would love to see a heavy cavalry unit for the Lumineth too!

I'm wondering how big the range is going to be? Like Deepkin sized or Ossiarch Bonereaper sized?

Well it not that may more units to get to the size of Deepkin as I'm guessing they will do a similar thing with the Eels with as in 2 options from 1 kit.

Range unit (archers), Heavy Cavalry (sharks in deepkin), big creature, and a couple of generic leaders melee and wizard.

Dragon princes on wyverns to be a similar size as the Sharks/Palladors would be awesome :)


The big creature better be a dragon or some sort of copywright named version of one lol

The Wrath of the Everchosen book,mentions them having artillery when they were defending against Archeon and the Varanguard.

I'd expect some kind of bolt thrower sort of thing,  especially if they are harkening back to the World-That-Was.
Title: Re: Lumineth Realm-Lords (And LVO AoS Stuff)
Post by: Sir_Godspeed on February 26, 2020, 07:43:47 PM
A Bolt Thrower would be a great fit. I also hope they get chariots, they're such a perfect fit for the "pointy elves" (lol). Some flying birdies would be good too. Maybe another version of that sphinx thing, as a centerpiece unit (besides Teclis, and presumably Tyrion, I mean).

I wonder whether they'll get any dragons. Maybe not, this time.

I think it really depends on whether the generic centerpiece version will also be a sphinx or not.

Remember, it's not always just one centerpiece model per faction.

Idoneth - Eidolon and leviadon

Gloomspite - Mangler and Troggboss

Bonereapers - Mortarch and Catapult

There's a possibility we could get more then one. I'm almost certain of it, because Tyrion seems to be a part of this faction :).

They definitely could get more than one centre piece model (hence dragons!  ;D).  Tyrion is bound to appear for example.

From the rumblings Iím hearing in the wider community, these guys are going to absolutely fly off the shelves.  GW is on a role these days!

I would put a helmet less head on that model as it would look a million times better, or even replace it with a head from either the spearmen or cavalry we've seen so far. Those horns are too impractical and dangerous to the wearer, if one of those horns took a hit, either the helmt would spin and block your view or it would twist your neck.

Post by: Sir_Godspeed on March 9, 2020, 06:32:46 PM
I don't know, I think you kinda have to chalk the unrealistic headgear up to magic and divinity to some degree. They're clearly not *meant* to be realistic, so instead if you'd like, you could make some reason for it, eg. it helps channel the geomantic spirits or whatever. I'm kinda digging it. They look more like religious iconography than actual people, and I kinda feel like it fits. It's obviously a matter of taste though.

Overall maybe the most enticing faction in AoS I've seen so far.

I do think it's a tad weird that the faction dedicated to *light* is all about *geo*mantic spirits, ie. earth spirits. It's thematically... odd.

I wasnít aware of that.  So theyíre, what...Earth benders or something?  Despite being Ďlight elvesí from the realm of light?  Itís unexpected, maybe GW deserves credit for not making them too obvious.

As for the helmet, yes itís over the top, but thatís par the course for GW so I donít mind!  ;D

There are four elements in total, guys. Earth - Defensive, immovable. River - Magic. Zenith - Martial, fire, and I think wind is the last one? All of the Lumineth revolve around these four elements on which their society is built.

I am loving this unit of archers!!! While they do seem a bit monopose, I actually like it in this case because they seemed synchronized into one cohesive unit. I also really love the details on these models as well.

It's strange, someone told me that this army is going to be like Harlequins, paint-wise. Youi either have to be a great painter to due them justice or they'll just be meh. I honestly disagree with that, as one does not need to paint checker or galaxy patterns to make this work.

I am confident that I can do this army justice, as someone who knows they'd be awful doing a Harlequin army!!!

Well, certainly unexpected!

It's so out there that I'm not certain what to  make of it yet. Still, I think overall that the new reveals are cool. I think I just need some time to think on them. I do like the Mountain spirits, just wish there were slightly less ridiculous helms on the Stoneguard, haha.

I mean, who the hell would have guessed that the "high elves" would be getting a Ghorgon of all things. :P

It looks both cool annd utterly bizarre at the same time. It's like someone dropped a bull head on top of an Eldar Revenant Titan or something.

I like everything but those stupid, stupid horns on their helmets. Like, wtf is with those?

Why not just put the horns *on* their helmets? That, at least, would look normal. But no, they had to give the helmets a lift and then stick the horns on the tippy-top like some kind of bovine propeller on a beanie. Yuck. I've never seen more obvious head-swap material in my life.

Much better head swap from the vanari dawnriders.

As models they look okay, but they donít scream 'elvish', and that feeling is reinforced by the hammers.

Also why does it look like Avalenor might be a 'Big Foot'. That is, what's with all the hair sticking out of the armour!
Title: Re: Lumineth Realm-Lords (More Reveals from GAMA!!!)
Post by: Sir_Godspeed on March 29, 2020, 10:25:59 PM
I'm not opposed to elves with hammers. I remember reading the Silmarillion and looking up the Book of Unfinished tales where Gondolin had both warrior groups with clubs(!) and smiths in all black armor fighting with hammers (and they were the good guys). Super-niche, I know, but the idea stuck. Plus, White Lions had huge axes and that's another weapon lots of people wouldn't associate with elves.

But, yeah, I get the feeling everyone else is struggling with.

Curiously, I don't hate the helmets. I still mostly find the proportions of the giant bull thing just in some kind of uncanny valley of body proportions.

Maybe its presence feels less weird if I just think of it as essentially a treeman. Big stompers aren't entirely alien to WH elves, I guess.

Still, I would've liked to see a dragon. Maybe with a future Tyrion-centric release.

So here is everything that I can find on what's been revealed so far. I was searching for somewhere I could find all there is to know about the lumineth at the moment, and it restored my faith in the range again :).

The artwork is beautiful and so are most of the models.  I do like the cavalry in particular.  I really do not like that minotaur look alike thing though.  It seems completely out of step with the rest of the range.
Title: Re: Lumineth Realm-Lords (More Reveals from GAMA!!!)
Post by: Wyddr on March 30, 2020, 09:06:13 AM
I dig pretty much the entire range, with the exception of Teclis's pose and the silly hats on the hammer dudes. That latter, though, is just a head swap--easy enough.

I am disappointed at the total lack of giant eagles and flying stuff.

I watched the livestream on Saturday, where they revealed the new models. Jervis came on afterwards and talked about the lore of the lumeneth and why these creatures are part of the range. Totally sold me on it. I recommend checking out the stream and listening to that part.

I can see that.

Maybe something like that will come with an "Air/Zenith" rune release. Although that'll be years and years from now, if other armies are anything to go by.


I've realized a bit more about what it is that looks so incredibly weird about that minotaur thing. Its head is WAAAAY above its shoulders. It's bizarre. Also the shins are freakishly long.

They've clearly tried to "elf-ify" the bull, but I'm not sure it's entirely worked.

Now that I see the artwork it looks a little bit better, but I remain unconvinced.  To me, it looks like a more elaborate version of Ray Harryhausen's Minaton, which just doesn't fit the range as I conceptualise it when assessing the other figures that have been posted in this topic.

Well technically, they're actually not part of the Lumineth Aelves at all. These are the elementals of Hysh, part celestial beast, part mountain, that the Lumineth have allied themselves with in an effort to make amends for the scars they left on the land during their civil war.

So they're really not inclusive with the Lumineth, but are more allies joined together in a coalition.

I'd like to point out that all the "hammers" these dudes are toting around are really just mallets.

Are they then Hysh versions of the Slyvaneth?

That is one way to put it. They are elemental spirits of Hysh, particularly of the mountain aspect. They even have a High King, which is the guy detailed in that artwork, with the twin hammers.

Who knows if we'll see more in the future with river / zenith / wind.

Quite interesting when you think about it :).

Sylvaneth are sylvaneth, they exist in every realm.

These beings are something different entirely.

I'm aware of that, what I meant is that these guys are elementals of the Hysh realm's essence. Sylvaneth are much to the same in that they are essence of Ghyran, of life, and that essence can take hold in all of the mortal realms (like Death essence), probably more than the Hysh essence can :).

This raises an interesting issue of AoS: certain factions seem to naturally have exclaves in realms outside their home realm. Others don't really have a home realm specifically. I wonder if the Lumineth will have like, Ghyran or Ghur exclaves or something.

If you're collecting that army, that box is ridiculous to pass up. If it's anything like the sisters of Battle box, the limited edition book's value is half the price of the box, but with heaps more stuff thrown in. The templates and such will be very nice to have too.

Yeah I read these! I loved the lore article! Like, a lot! And it shows just how much we're going to get in terms of rules. There are literally spell lores for some of these kingdoms according to some stilled screenshots of the warscroll cards.

Also, Aelves now have cloning  :o, that's a huge lore bomb!

And actually that faction who does the cloning has my favorite color scheme by far!

So, I'm more excited for Realm-Lords than I've ever been now.

Because their lore, playstyle, and aesthetic seem to really be brought to life in the rules in the tome so far. Just like my Idoneth! I have a feeling that I'm going to love this army!

I likes your big brown eyes.

I likes your wet snout.

I likes the way you stamp your ooves.

I likes them big dangling udders you got.

But most of all...

I likes the way you moo!
