Skulls for the Skull Throne Event Theory

edited June 2 in General Discussion
"Tune in for the Warhammer Skulls Showcase tomorrow at 6PM BST to get a first look at some big incoming WARHAMMER II & III news..."

Based on that, I think we will get both Khorne roster and Legendary Lord reveal


but also TWW2 DLC reveal. And for the TWW2 DLC, I hope that it is beastmen and more specifically Taurox cause he is the most bloodthirsty minotaur and just badass.
Edit: I don't think we will get him that day but maybe a DLC reveal and announcement involving him could get revealed on that day?

Just look at him:



What do you guys think?

    From what I know, it's too early for Warhammer 2 DLC.

    And looking at the Steamdb entries, the event FLC is coming up next, alone.

    So I think you're going overboard with what is a relatively minor mention.

    The Warhammer 2 DLC is not confirmed - probably just the SFTST FLC.

    I don’t know. It has been 6 months since the last dlc and we have already had flc in between. I wouldn’t be surprised either way. Maybe both a flc and a dlc hint.

    You know, for a misunderstood vampire, I understand you quite well.

    Will be weird if they completly ignore this topic though, should at least say when we can expect it more precisely, or maybe even reveal one of the races included.
    I'm actually not very hyped for the final DLC, but still it is more interesting than WH3.

    It's hard to get hyped for a beastmen DLC in general... especially when combined with a 7th LL for a core 2 race. Still if they give us Taurox and some big beasty minotaurs to go with him it might peek my interest.

    The key word is BIG news for both games ... Which seems a bit grand for FLC but could just be marketing speak
    Change is on the way...

    Ehh... wouldn't be the first time they have slightly over-exaggerated things. I would take it with a whole spoon of salt.
  • hillbillymachinegunhillbillymachinegun Registered Users Posts: 204
    Well, if they were to announce, say, a Beastmen DLC first, it would free them up to show the marked gors that I imagine would be in the Khorne trailer.

    Could be wrong, but it would make sense to do this, as showing off marked Beastmen in the WH3 trailers first would steal the thunder from the DLC announcement.

    marketing speak, i expect flc unit or hero (no lord). if dlc news drops i will be happy, but i think we have to wait till july/august for the dlc.

    BIG news for those two.... which could mean the sum of the news they get, rather than each being big.

    FIRST LOOK at big news.

    So no, we will not get all the big news during the event. We'll get a first look at it.

    If it turns out to be Shadowblade - I will let CA happily call that big news. He has been a long time coming...

    Legend of total war said on stream earlier that he knows what the dlc is so it probably isn't that far away.

    I do not want to overhype myself. I will keep with a few Khorne reveal and a line about the WH2 DLC (somethinf like "coming soon!").

    If it is more. Well. Good !

    He should be careful - that's borderline NDA breach. If he is telling the truth then it is probably coming within 2-3 weeks as content creators only get them shortly before launch.

    LOTW confirmed it’s the DLC in his stream. First 10 minutes.

    I would have thought that would get him in trouble. However he seems to be pretty good on that stuff now.

    I'm still not a fan of his content - but I've warmed greatly to him as a person in the last 12 months. I don't want him getting in needless trouble.

    I think people should stop posting "Taurox" conversions to spark Taurox discussions when the name alone would do the trick without misguiding some people.

    My second thought is that everyone expecting a roster reveal for a race we have not seen much of yet, while Kislev apparently get "hyped" for three weeks without roster reveal, is a very naive soul.

    Third thought would be that anyone expecting news for the final DLC, is setting himself up for disappointment. Kinda like the people who saw the teaser on Monday and expected now news all week with a final climax for the Skulls event. Yeah, how is that going? Excited above todays confirmation that we will get news tomorrow, which we knew since last week Skarbrand leak or at the very least the Skulls confirmation from GW from the weekend? Exciting times, right? ;)

    What we will get tomorrow is simple.

    If we are lucky we get some good trailer for him and if we are really lucky, they show us a unit they have not shown us before. Meaning: The units that we only saw from youtubers, not official videos. I kinda do not expect actual real new units too see. Because quite frankly the whole news reveal since May was pretty lackluster. I will not deny we saw new stuff, but not really much either. And the whole marketing campaign so far is pretty terrible. Just look at this week with three days done and learned nothing, except the confirmation for the already confirmed event tomorrow. Yaii. Could only get better when confirming TWW3 again for 2021 while still not handing out a release date.
    Which brings us to TWW2, which obviously will get something for Skulls, like the last four years. What? I don't know. I doubt it will be a LL. Sure, after Rakarth, who knows, but what are the chances? So another missing hero? A missing unit? Either way it will be good news, but certainly not BIG news.

    Hey, maybe it is the missing Gold Wizard. I am sure that would match all those expectation that people rise in their heads ^^

    Don't give me hope, this would be too amazing to be true !

    I think you folks are not seeing the ''big'' picture here. We will get a sneak peak of WH3's ''Khorne'' LL and a sneak peak of a ''minotaur'' LL . 20 seconds sneak peak for each of them.

    See? News about something big :) .
  • ArneSoArneSo Hamburg, Germany Registered Users Posts: 23,591
    Extremely unlikely. It’s probably just the usual Skull Throne FLC like every year.

    CA isn't great at setting expectations.
    Albion would make the perfect Total War Warhammer 3 pre-order; with Hengus the Druid and Bran MacKerog as Legendary Lords.

    We're paying full price for a Chaos Warrior of Tzeentch without any actual Tzeentch markings or changes to the model? Change this now CA, #JusticeForTzeentch

    Seriously.

    There is one picture of (part of) Taurox:



    That's it. Everything else you see is fanart, conversions, or generic Doom Bulls.

    Legend of Total War's comments make it seem like tomorrow could very well have something WH2 DLC related, I wouldn't have expected anything like that otherwise.

    Have to admit that I‘m getting hyped even if I want to resist. 😂

    And like others said already, if the Skull Throne FLC is indeed connected to the LP *cough* Wargor... then it makes sense to announce both things together.
