Got rolled by a preteen today.



Making a push into the enemy, but getting pulverized by hammer bros.


Holding out on the final objective.

"Deepkin". So more of the Cthulu elves rumor. Can't wait to see what these guys look like.

Rumor I read is that the aelf brothers also wanted to create a new race of their own, like Sigmar's Stormcast. They have had several experiments, and these fish people are maybe one of their early takes that have escaped out on their own into the wild.

I don’t know, there are some really cool models (the octopus guy and the one with the cloak turning into a wave) but I don’t feel a burning desire to play with, paint, or collect them. The turtle and sharks are fun...but also a little doofy looking. Something about them is just stopping me from being like “yeah, gotta have those guys”. Kind of the exact same way I felt about Kharadron, really. Maybe it’s the boats? It is kind of weird that two recent armies are both boaty and out of their native element. And Order. I’m more impressed by Daughters of Khaine to be honest.

I dunno, definitely in for a Shadespire warband of them.

Mark me down as another "looks cool but probably not want to buy them". That turtle thing is pretty awesome though.

Heard rumors of elves and was thinking a buddy of mine could get some new stuff to play with his old high elves but I'm not too sure how well these will fit.

Pretty sure High Elves as we knew them are squatted. They can keep the Tomb Kings company.

Supposedly the Mistweaver Saih from Silver Tower is part of this faction but the aesthetic is totally different...and, well, kind of better?

Maybe, (well highly likely) it's my Greek research background kicking in, but I am getting a distinct minoan cycladic aesthetic impression from a lot of the models. It's a light impression, but the spirit is definitely there I feel.
But amore sinister vibe, since octopus were the perview of Scylla and sometimes Ekhidnae.
Sharks the perview of Akheilos, etc. I won't bore with the rest.

But that's considering minoan mythos. Doesn't apply here unless these are supposed to be baddies.

As a new race... I dunno. They don't grab me. Just seem like a race of dark elf dressing aquamen subverting fauna to win wars.

I was kind of hoping for something more alien. Like actual fishmen.

Yeah, I was hoping for straight up Innsmouth Look/Gill-Man/Abe Sapien fish men and women. A couple of these dudes look not that much different from old Dark Elf Corsairs.

BOLS speculates the wave dude may be Teclis or Tyrion...seems reasonable.

Battleline dudes have no eyes.

You know, I feel a great sense of relief when GW announces something I don’t want.

The helmet and dress of the drum aelf on the far right on the turtle looks very much like the mistweaver's style to me.



So does the aelf on the upper left. (Same model?)


To be honest I like this faction. Not as much as Morathi's snake den, but definitely more original then Innsmouth creatures. I was afraid there'd be too much cthulhu influence.

And I _hate_ painting eyes. Eyeless troops is a +1.

It seems to me the old elf nations map to AoS as follows:
Wood elf = Sylvaneth
Dark elf = Daughters of Khaine
High elf = Deepkin

The fact that Sylvaneth is more tree spirits then men with pointy ears is cool and definitely mixes up 'aelves' as a whole.

The cavalry riders look better in the stills, IMO.

In the background here.


And bottom right.

Last bit of rumors I'm reading...

This is not all the models for Deepkin. Also, 2 more factions of Aelves coming. Idoneth is a failed Teclis experiment. He still has his faction and Tyrion will have his own too.
