    I'm curious if TWW will be able to get the aesthetics right for Slaanesh in a way the models never did (no this is not going to be about the bondage and boobs thing, we've had that debate done to death).

    Slaanesh's daemons are meant to be beautiful, like Dechala and Azazel, yet their models look as hideous as any other monster in the game, because of the limitations of a small-ish lead model.

    I'd like to see if they do manage to strike that balance between beautiful face/hideous form that Slaanesh's host often have according to lore.

    Well, we've already got Sigvald, and that guy is pretty much gorgeous, amirite fellow Total War players? <3

    Well deserved 2nd Slaanesh LL.

    She can lead both mortals and daemons, so, even if Styrkaar (or moved-Sigvald) is not in the roster at the beginning, Dechala offers the possibility to lead the mortal warriors.

    If they can beat us over the head with the uncanny valley, I'll count that as a success.

    Dechala is definitely one of the most unique WoC characters. Assuming we get Bloodwrack Medusae which is almost a given with more LPs coming in, her skeleton could be made without to much effort.

    Ideally I'd like to see two themed lords for each god in both WoC and DoC. Sigvald and Dechala, and N'Kari and the Masque or Azazel respectively.

    I would love to see her and that CA make her look more like a beautiful female elve tranformed, I also hope her movement in battle is fluent and graceful like a dance with blades

    If they model her, they can use the same model for the DE's Bloodwrack Medusae too, I guess.

    EDIT: 2 arms vs. 4 arms, so clearly not identical, but maybe share some of the animation rig.

    Good option for the Mono DLC if it comes.
    Game 3 must have variety in its core races. Ogres, Chaos Dwarfs, Kislev, and Demons of Chaos in its full iconic, glorious, undivided glory.

    Dechala is a very interesting LL, like a fresh air. She as the 2nd core LL of Slaanesh sounds cool. . . even if I'd like to get Styrkaar + N'kari first, then Dechala and Masque as FLC/DLC but still. . .

    I really shocked in a bad way when someone says that we will only get DoC with 1 LL for each god at very best. Sure, losing the 80% of the complete Monogods rosters, mechanics and lore would be an unforgivable nightmare. . . but also losing sooooo many LL for each God would be a drama. Gladly this is not gonna happen.

    Actually I trust in CA more than Mixu's mods or any other modder. Mods will never be able to create something like Dechala, Arbaal, Glottkin, Tamurkhan, Vilitch, Azazel, Scyla, Skaar and so on. . . let alone the units.

    Given the second round of LPs, I don't think it's to much of a stretch that we could get two LLs per god in DoC as well as one unaffiliated (Be'lakor), giving us 9 total. WoC will be more difficult given it's a DLC, but I think they could pull it off once the main DLC for game three is done.

    I guess we have to wait and see. Surely getting Monogods as DLC's or Cores or Mixed is better than getting poor-DoC and nothing else.

    Thing is I'd probably prefer other LL for the 2 Slaaanesh Mono LL. Azael and Ghorros are probably better pragmatic choices. Dachala is cool no doubt, and in a Vacuum she's the 2nd best choice but Ghorros givws the BM a LL.

    It's a tough one, the better character in Dachala or the better symmetry in Ghorros.

    The Mask of Slaanesh will be a LL. Don't know about Dechala, but my suspicion is she'll be... denied.
    I suppose I should just be grateful for the views...
  • Mr_Finley7Mr_Finley7 Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 4,125
    Ugh the mask is so bland. Dechalas story is tragic horror with some slaaneshi excess thrown in for flavor.

    I wouldn't bet on it... The Bretonnian Damsels were meant to be young and beautiful. The Prophetess model looks younger and and more beautiful than damsel model even though Prophetesses are bascally older damsels... What CA gave us for damsels looks more like Kislevite Hag Witches than TT damsels...
