    Why are people salting over Cathay getting their own gods? This was obviously going to happen when they announced them.

    Yeah, and to be honest, a part of me expected the Dragons to fill that role.

    It's just that.... it feels strange to suddenly have the Dragon Emperor fill that role.

    And I think the comparison with Chaos Gods is largely misplaced or misrepresentative and just bad writing rather than an accurate statement.
    eh the GW one doesn't say they are that powerful so its just CA going over board

    She probably can turn into an Elf.

    Now that we know what we know, I even stronger* think that Imrik should have been DLC in Game3. Maybe a story where this very Princess asks for his help in awakening her father. He would fight against Galrauch over the Dragon Emperor's fate. Imagine her flirting with Imrik while giving him quests. A bit of drama and romantic comedy.

    I'm not a scaley! I just like dragons a lot, like a lot more than a lot. And I like rom-coms! The cheaper the better.

    She already looks like an elf. Reminds me of Tyrande from Warcraft.

    In fact... the entire faction of Grand Cathay reminds me FAR more of Warcraft than Warhammer. The aesthetic is wrong.

    No, i also dislike Garth Ennis. He is very juvenile and raunchy, and some of his statements are utterly ridiculous, like Captain America being offensive to WWII veterans when his co-creator, Jack Kirby, served in the war and soldiers liked his stories.

    If you think using your abilities to help and inspire people is childish, then i feel sorry for you.

    Nah. Look at Age of Sigmar. It's the inevitable descendant, sadly.

    WHFB will get slowly retconned into something more compatible with Age of Sigmar over the years then SNAP! before you realize it, OW will be Age of Sigmar, just at a larger unit scale.

    Kislev and Cathay are just the first tastes of that insidious chaos corruption.

    Welp. Take the old lore and throw it in the garbage can. Now there's only a single Dragon Emperor who's older than the Old Ones.

    I will, cause who cares. The new lore is better.

    Finally my redemption as prophet of Cathay. This faction blows Kislev out of the water for me and even Tzeentch looks awesome. Definitely getting my first playthrough. Bring on Nippon as a dlc race and life will be complete.

    I don't see it myself. Personally, I don't mind that Cathay is over the top. That's pretty much what I expected and wanted. Floating cities and transforming characters are exactly what I desired.

    Just to add something positive though:

    Tzeentch looked FRAKKING AMAZEBALLS.

    I'll love it but hate to wait until next year. ;) But I've waited 7 months so I can wait 5 more. :smile: I hope not 7 more that’s not early anymore but I don’t know. Hope we get a release date till Christmas for 2022.

    The mythyical theme is honestly visually amazing. I’ll like the Chinese lantern canons , the terra-cotta statues (they are more dynamic as me for a statue but I can live with that) and the cannons. The Infantry looks good. My expectations are fulfilled for the start. :) thanks for the work. And the trailer team is dope. Love these trailers , they never disappoint me visually.

    Looking forward for future units and monkey king. And please let the dragon emperor and moon empress do something in the game or the anger of the celestial dragons will be with you.

    Hyped for Cathay. And what’s to come in the future.

    Chaos Dwarfs and dogs of war. Or the possible factions like nippon or others :)

    Hey,

    Just to clarify a discussion point in here from the FAQ.

    I'm certainly NOT suggesting the Celestial Dragon Emperor is on a power level equal to the Chaos Gods. But he and his wife are extremely powerful and comparable to most regional gods of the world, such as Ulric or Myrmidia for example.

    This is what I assumed. The Dragon Emperor, being a being from before the Old Ones arrived, would be on-par with Krakanrok, Kholek's daddy. And he's way too massive and powerful to be a playable character. That is why we play his son Kholek.

    Also loved the trailer! But then I am a sucker for playable dragon characters.

    Seems to be a bit disappointing numbers for so called the most anticipated TWW3 race.

    Wait till the China wakes up proper.

    Love the promo video! Might drag me back to playing some more Warhammer. Depends on the information about the game posted over the next few months.

    Tzeentch is my favorite Chaos god and i rely care for his Aestetics and theme. The Tzeentch Chaos warriors on the Iron Dragon image and in the trailer looks like Undivided chaos warriors covered in Skulls and Sharpened bone spikes with the only hint that they belong to Tzeentch being a blue tint. Tzeentch isn't known for Skulls and Bone spikes, he is known for his EYE iconography and the Dark blue armors with golden trim. Please give Tzeentch's chaos warriors and chosen a unique look and feel like you did with Khorne. The miniatures that exemplify this artistic style is "Gaunt Summoner", "Fatemaster" and "The Changeling". Here is a image portraying the style of armor and crest the community wants to see for Tzeentch

    Cathay don't seem to be fantasy space marines, thank goodness. Relief.

    Otherwise was not fused either way about Cathay. Thought Warhammer was fine without them.

    So far they look quite fun. Pleasantly surprised.
    As long as they remember game 3 clearly should be a chaos dwarf delivery device and a siege fix. Everything else is just icing. :)

    This was one of the things I feared about GW giving Cathay an older dynasty look. The design for the elves already took soon inspiration from those. Elves also appropriated the Yin-yang symbol.

    That symbol is actually associated with Anu, of Sumer. Which makes sense -- a lot of the root culture of China is Sumerian. Then again... they're the root of most still extant cultures ROFLMAO. GG Sumer.

    The High Elves (and especially the Eldar) took absolutely massive amounts of influence from Sumerian and Egyptian cultures.
