In the Storm of Magic Novella Hour of Shadows pertains to the relationship between Zoats and the Asrai.
Harry confirmed Zoats for Fantasy in the WoC thread. I think SoM text implies they'll be in the Wood Elf book. I think that warrants an update to the front page.
Well we need a hacker to get at Harry's compilation of rumors, then we will know everything
Zoats would be very cool indeed. Hoping for a sweet new plastic kit and a entry in the wood elf army book.
The rumours about zoats have them with WoC, not WE.
Only from one guy, Harry said he had heard about Zoats but nothing specific. Also in SOM Zoats are related mostly to wood elves.
The only way GW was gonna push their models since there are none similar in the entire world market! Guys here preferred Mantic models more, but the book scr$%d them up on this one and forced them on buying back some GW models.
I on the other hand prefer conversions, so I'll still be using my Mantic models one way or another (which costed me half of what GW charges)...
Valid point Urgat.
Hello everyone, I write from Italy, where this thread has been translated and kept udpdated in an unofficial forum, GW Tilea .
There are some rumours about Asrai from a playtesting team in Glasgow, posted by Avalon, but I dont' know if they are still valid. (it was the end of 2011)
a. Naieth the Prophetess with her owl are coming back in the next armybook. She would make some other Lores of magic availables for selection (like Life, Beasts and Heavens), or maybe the entire army could choose these additional Lores. Avalon doesn't know if this rule is due to the presence of Naieth in the army, or if it's always possible for Asrai.
b. Skaw will be in the book as a special character, and his presence will allow to choose Great Eagles as a Special choice, (some people said this, other people said the eagles with Skaw become 2x1 rare choice, like the Asur ones)
Maybe you can say if this rumours sound good or if they are old and renown
greetings to everyone
Thanks Ganon, these sound plausible (and fantastic! ). If Naieth's owl allows us to reroll misses when shooting at a specific unit again, I will be extremely happy. Plus, I've always had a soft spot for Skaw (evidently) - if he was useful (sadly he wasnt particularly in 5th ed) I'd take him every time.
Fair enough, but he's been speaking from memory, and he just turned 46, are we going to trust the memory of an old man?

Curses! You found me!
If Skaw does indeed return, I hope they re-release his classic model!

Nostalgia is a good thing, not in this case. The Wood Elf Characters do not match the quality of the High Elf ones. At least when it eventually comes we can pretty much guarantee a Plastic set for Foot/Horse Mounted General and a Foot/Unicorn/Horse Mounted Spellweaver.
