Guess who's coming to dinner ?
Hello there !!
This image is from the last White Dwarf and tease an old ally coming back to Nagash. This started a conversation on FB.
Settra was sugested but i don't think he can be called an "old ally" and he's now a Stormcast ^^
But don't forget the Official Tease :
So "it" escape ? And he got 3 eyes ?
The circlet remind me of TK in the warhammer rts
This discussion was on the AOS FB fan group :
My money on Krell Or Tomb King Faction reveal !
What do you think ?
Latest Short Story about Malign Portent !
Hello everyone !!
Cause Célèbre (in french in the text)
Sevastean Mench banged his ceremonial hammer on the polished surface of the wyrmwood debating table. The priceless antique had taken quite a beating these last few days, but it seemed to be the only way the Master Patriarch could get the two hundred and forty-four Lords of the Heavenhall to keep their peace.
‘This is getting us nowhere!’ he shouted. The delegates of the Grand Conclave stared at him in various states of affrontery or contempt. ‘We cannot meet this new era of darkness divided, or we will be picked off, whittled away, and slain in our beds!’
Read the rest on malign portent it worth it !
ps : I demand pen & paper rpg for aos with an HammerHal setting now !
Nick Horth twitch talk with Ceri (Aos fluff)
Hello everyone !!
I know it's a day late (sorry) but here the transcript of the Twitch talk with Nick Horth one the Fluff Author for AoS.
Resides in the Land of Death
He has a citadel: Citadel of Nagash, where death magic is so powerful the living can't even step inside.
His citadel was sacked during the Age of Chaos but he wasn't there and when he went back he burned hsi enemies there for all eternity.
Waiting in the shadow, and laying the ground works during the realm-gate wars,
Shyish has a lot of realm stones (crystallized magic) at the edge of the realm and for a lonnnnnnng time Nagash has been harvesting it with his skeleton thralls (The large column of skeletons we saw in the malign portents video) each one return a few gramme of realm stone. What is he's doing with it?
Ps : He mentioned that Shyish edges are territory too dangerous for living to venture.
Age of myth : Nagash was part of Sigmar pantheon and was playing nice with other gods.
At the time he was in control of the Land of Death but wasn't ruling it with his iron fist.
Shyish : World of ending, underworld for each realm. This land is composed of all the after life beliefs of the different empire/country in the 8 realms. The more people trust a specific vision of the afterlife the larger it is represented in Shyish.
Souls are resources for Nagash and a very important one. He sees himself as the master of all dead things (soul included). And when Sigmar made the Stormcasts he crossed a line as he used dying or dead souls.
Slaanesh : during the destruction of world that was, she devoured a lot of elves souls and she's trapped now by elves gods (Teclis, tyrion, ?). Morathi in the shadow realms was mentioned as being on the Nagash grudge list for stealing the souls dripping from Slanesh.
Nagash has dominion over all the Undead (Vampire and all tomb kingdom included^^)
The 3 Mortarchs lead his legions,
The Upside Down Pyramid is made of Realm Stone, no one know what he's doing with it.
Still, it started sending ripples of Death Magic into the realms (sending death souls into living)
Manfred is the favorite Mortarch of the nick (lol ....)
Manfred is ruling a part of shyish, a land modeled like the country he always wanted to rules. With servants looking like people that wronged him in the past (and the list is long)
Arkhan : Favorite of Nagash, 2nd best at Death magic, he has a college of black necromancers (elite wizards) doing secret mission for him.
Nefertata : Rules a palatial lands with bunch of vampire courtesans (Vampire Versailles ^^) ,
They send a lot of spies in the realms. Nefertata is the First Soulblight vampire (drank Nagash's blood).
Blood Seeker Palanquin fluff : Ruled by a vampire matriarch named Sanguinor, they are looking for the perfect blend of blood (like wine tester ^^)
Blood-Knight : Fight with an honor code, with twisted morality.
Prince Vhordrai : First blood-knight, riding Undead dragon, long time Nagash field commander. Tried to kill Nagash, Imprisoned century. Now released by Nagash, has a teleporting castle “Crimson keep” but can't leave it for too long. So the keep teleports in place of a ruined castle and the prince starts rampaging.
Ghouls : Follow Nagash but not all of them, and they follow him out of convenience to eat the remains of fallen foes. Nagash doesn't have control on them.
Sigmar sent envoys and messages to Nagash asking him to rejoin the Pantheon (like Allariel ) he did not yet.
Nagash on Mannfred and betrayal destroying the World that was. Nagash doesn't get emotional like Chaos gods/Sigmar … He sees Mannfred as a tool and an incredible useful one. Secondly keeping Mannfred under his rule is a form of punishment as Mannfred's goal was always to be the top dog(but never succeeded ^^)
Nagash in Malign portent stops the nurgle rot, and some human tribe see him as a protector. He offers protection against Nurgle's Rot/Chaos Gods but there is a big cost !
Meta power of: Sigmar/Chaos Gods/Nagash. Chaos Gods are eternal and powered by emotions so it's difficult to imagine them dying . But Nagash and Sigmar have potential to rise and stop being the underdogs. For example, if Nagash transforms everyone in an Undead, chaos god would vanish as they would be no more emotions fueling them ^^
Was interesting !!

At last more stormcast & new malign portents video
hello again !
GW Community Team revealed Vorras the Stormcast engineer + new video about the diablo 3 monk ^^
Lord-Ordinators have a particularly sacred duty – where the other Stormcast Eternals clear the way for Sigmar’s kingdoms, it’s these warrior-engineers that oversee the construction of new cities, walls and Stormkeeps, working in tandem with Dispossessed work gangs to create wonders unseen since the Age of Myth. These warriors also observe the movements of the stars in the heavens above the Mortal Realms, using combinations of mathematics, science and seer-craft to determine the future. With a great evil rising, the Lord-Ordinators have been dispersed among the armies of Order so that they can help prepare them for what is to come…
Grand Alliance: Death in the General’s Handbook 2017
Morning everyone !!
Death teaser by Warhammer community :
Have Morghast as battle line and can take ally in other death faction.
Death courts delusion
NightHaunt deep strike rule
Nighthaunt forces make powerful and otherworldly armies in the new General’s handbook. They are capable of deploying to the battlefield in the middle of the game or even turning one of their Cairn Wraiths or Tomb Banshees into a Wizard. If you choose the Nighthaunt allegiance, you’ll also be able to benefit from Hexwraiths as battleline units, allowing for a whole army of spectral riders to run down your foes with.
Can now pick blood line for them and have their own artefact
MAKE BIGGER HORDE
One small but significant change that’s going to be great for Death armies in the new edition is Massive Regiments. This new addition to matched play is aimed at making horde units more viable by offering players a points discount when they take a unit at its full size; you’ll want to take your Skeleton Warriors in units of 40 and your Zombies in units of 60.
