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.

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.

The new models look absolutely phenomenal. I cant wait to see the models in person, and reveals for what other kits the range will have. Hopefully some kind of artillery and chariot.

would love to see what the new sculpters can do with a dragon/wyvern type thing. The previous High Elf Dragons were fantastic.

YES!

I want cool dragons and eagles and stuff. Maybe dragon eagles. Maybe dragon eagle riders.

It would be funny if skycutters came back in a new and improved form.  Actually I really hope that happens!

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.

There's been a couple of articles on their background and design. Nothing groundbreaking, but fun enough:

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.

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.

I agree, and it makes the wait so much longer lol.

That’s some good fashioned cavalry right there.  Great to see that it still has a place in AoS.  Though I wonder if they’re magically enhanced in some way.

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.

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 they aim to give every faction a huge centrepiece mini so yeah, expect dragons.  8)

They already revealed the centerpiece model, Teclis. I doubt we'll see another big monster.
