Looking good as always.
Really hoping we are getting Cathay.

I wonder what we will see next.
"In brightest day, in blackest night,
No faction shall escape my sight.
Let those who think deniers are right
Beware my power--Faction Lantern's light!"

Everythime a faction/race is excluded from the trilogy, these games become smaller. RIP Araby and others.

    What I do not like about most of the Cathay concept units is their names - like this, "Black Sky" - as if they all were RoR. Cathayan Archers sounds both simpler and more in line with TWWH naming conventions.

    Other than that, it looks quite nice.

    This is nice. Cathay needs low tier ramge inf like everyone else. Although maybe a non ap repeater crossbow unit would be also good as upgrade.

    As for gunpowder, I dunno if it makes sense to have small guns for Cathay, maybe makes them too similar to Empire and Kislev.

    That's the first I'm not really a fan of, it doesnt feel fantasy enough and a bit too close to reality. But you're doing a great work, keep going.

    It's been established in the fluff that they do, although they might be even more primitive than the Empire's if they're development has stagnated for a long time.

    Given the name, I was expecting a Chu-ko-nu kind of unit, but a fairly standard archer unit is good too. I honestly enjoy the rank and file guys.

    For me, the interesting thing about Cathay is Tzeentch.

    I really hope his influence is hinted at, not too much but a bit, in some units/visuals.

    Unless one Subfaction was going full Tzeentch Worship, similar to the Subfaction of Morathi.

    That would be very likely if the Monkey King was ever added. He is a creature of tzeench or is at least covertly aligned with him.

    Between the Monkey King and the Jade Vampires, there's plenty of scope for Arkhan-style Cathayan factions.

    Would love to see his vision for the Cathay vampires.

    Pretty sure someone made the Jade Vampire.

    Yes it's the other guy who even used to do 3d-like models. He hasn't created anything related in a long time though.
