Awesome, cannot wait to see the new models that'll be revealed tomorrow. I'll be skipping this release, but I'm happy for all of the goblin fans out there ;D. Hype!

That. Is. Epic. And that is not even most of the new models coming out? That's insane!

They look really good! Not enough that I'm going to collect them, mind you, but very cool nevertheless.

I was just expecting new terrain and endless spells myself, so all this is amazing!

Truth be told, I probably shouldn’t be starting a new army, but these have got me good.

I might have two friends jumping on the AoS bandwagon very soon. I'll be relocating down to their location in about a week, and a match is scheduled between the Idoneth and the Sancrosanct Chamber, with me spectating and trying to guide the players through the game.

One friend is interested in the Daughters of Khaine. The other is undecided at the moment. I'll be lending him my stormcast to see if might like them. If he does, I'll let him buy them off me.

Sooo.... that means *Goblins Intensifies* ;D.

Nice one Myen’Tal!  Good luck with the intro game, and be sure to let us know how it goes!  :)

Meanwhile, we’ve now seen the previews of the spells, alligence abilities and artifacts of the Gloomspite Gitz, and they’re looking pretty good! 

However, I’ve also heard that pre-orders sold out.  That’s a good sign for the success of the release, but I wish I got back home sooner.

Hmm, they're still up on the GW website from what I can see.

What kind of army are you planning on building?

I'm thinking on a Moonclan force equal parts night goblin and squig. Skagrott at the helm, backed up with a shaman or two and a couple of mounted Loonbosses. I'm hoping to be able to squeeze a healthy unit of Troggoths into a 2000 point list, and ideally a mangler squig. I guess we'll have to see!

I thought about doing a complete troggoth army, but I think I'll pass on second thought.

Also can we talk about the new Dankhold Troggboss and Troggoths, and the Rockgut Troggoths!? They look so amazing! I like the proportions and the aesthetics of the Rockguts a bit more than the Dankhold ones, but I'll reserve judgement until I see them in person!

I think the Gloomspite Gitz appeal to me more than most other ranges at the moment because they're focused on creating as much anarchic mayhem as possible to achieve their goals in the lore. I find that a refreshing pace from the grim reality of the Idoneth Deepkin (rewatched the release trailer for them again, by the way. Cannot believe that it still pumped me up like it did the first day I saw it ;D!). Sometimes it's good to have contrasting forces in a collection.

The new models are gorgeous, the rules seem to be very in-depth with a great amount of options, and plus there is a vast variety of paths you can take for your collection :D. I think it's a great faction if you want a race that you can expand upon and take in very different directions, if you want to invest in that.

I don't see why not ;D.

The things that are motivating me are the trolls (because OHMMYGOD), the sheer variety of the range, and the fact that my two regular opponents will both be playing Order factions.

Going to get the battletome and make a final decision soon.
