    Chaos Endtimes - Mk.II

    Sheesh, the old thread exploded those last days. Time for a fresh start. THe old list:

    • "Glotkin" ... a named character, not a mount option for anybody, the biggest kit to be released (though not as big as a Stompa, as rumoured by others)
    • Nurgle (?) Chosen ... the uncertainty here is whether they are actually dedicated to Nurgle, or "only" very mutated
    • a new big mount ... for "multiple types of riders", but most likely to be WoC only
    • named character in clampack ... no details here


    Most of this already came true. Glottkin plus book is supposed to hit in week #3.

    There is no box like the 40K "Stormclaw" one coming.

    The week #1 releases are the Nurgle Blightkings and Gutrot Spume.
    The week #2 releases are the Maggoth Lords (one box, three builds).

    Please note that it is against WarSeers rules to post full stats. They are available in WD and in the units boxes, so you will find them easily everywhere.

    As for more recent hints:

I personally hope that is wrong or incorrect as I was hoping for new Malekith or morathi models. But leaves door open for other possible elves models / units. We will see as it is still a while away on those ones.
    Concerning the week #3 releases:

    The Glottkin (€86/£66)

    Warhammer: Glottkin (Book) (€52/£40)

    End Times: The Fall of Altdorf (Black Library)

    The Bane of Malekith (Black Library)

    There are also two bundles (I'm guessing) for 40K.
    And the newest tidbits from the next WD:

    Glottkin:
    -3 brothers, Ghurk (Beast), Ethrac (Sorcerer), Otto (Warlord)
    -Biggest kit yet for all Chaos armies, might be bigger than Nagash
    -2 head/hand options for Otto, aka helmeted/unhelmeted and holding a severed head/his own entrails
    -The brothers are NOT conjoined
    -Fluff: As their parents, peaceful Norscan farmers,were murdered by imperial troops, the three wanted to take revenge and took up their respective equipment, aka Scythe and Wizardry/Healing. Mutating into a giant-sized beast was just an addition for Ghurk.
    -The 3 nails put through a lot of stuff as already seen on the Maggoth Lords is the Glottkin's symbol
    -They're Archaon's "scouts" and were sent to kill Karl Franz and destroy Altdorf
    -No rules in the WD for them, sadly

    Chaos:
    -Archaon still doesn't take action but rather sends Glottkin and Valkia to do his dirty work in the Empire/Naggaroth

    Empire:
    -New High Patriarch is called GregorMartak
    -Karl Franz is alive and has new rules in the Glottkin book, he's called somehthing along the lines of "The ascended Karl Franz" and can resurrect from the dead if killed in-game, though no word's given on how often. In another fluff text, he's called the "Mightiest fighter of the Forces of Light". Make of that what you wish.

    Bretonnia:
    -Louen Leoncoeur is alive! Yes you read that right. He lives and now serves as a vassal to Gilles le Breton

    Timline:
    -The Glottkin book spans over half a year, from spring 2525, when Nagash is awoken and sends out his Mortarch Vlad to help the Empire, up to autumn 2525 and concludes in the attack on Altdorf, which happens at about the same time as the defeat of Settra at Nagash's hands and the downfall of Nehekhara. Basically the stories of "ET: Glottkin" and "ET: Nagash" are parallel.

    I'll try to get some pictures done later on today.
    Cheers

    "ET: Glottkin" contains rules for a new game style called "Streets of Death" and includes rules for fighting in cities, e.g. Altdorf and Marienburg. Manning barricades and destroying buildings are just 2 features mentioned that come into play during the BatRep (which the Good Guys win actually).

    The Paint Splatter article doesn't give hints about next week, strangely. The "What's Next" part, however, says "Atemgeräte an!", which translates to "Turn on your respirators!", "Building a Legion of Chaos", and "Codex: Apocryphes" (however this doesn't say anything at all).
    I'll try to keep the OP updated as good as I can. If you see things not up here already, please let me know via PM.
