    I'm gonna say "Norsca vs Kislev" purely because if we get "Norsca vs Grand Cathay" they better rename the race to "Tribes of Chaos" in the process. I don't want to see Aghol Norscans or anything like that anymore.

    If you count Norsca as Tribes of chaos with Hung and Kurgans, Cathay can be fun.

    If you count Norsca as only Norses... then Kislev.

    If they couldn't move Sigvald because he was a dlc, I don't know if they can completely change the name of a dlc. Most likely IF they do put kurgans or hung in Norsca, the race will remain Norsca and the faction will just be called Kurgans

    I'd say that Norsca vs Cathay is a better deal. Bring Cathay to 3 LLs, add more LLs to the eastern part of the map.
    There is even a caster character(which Norsca currently missing) who has an established conflict with Cathay, and that conflict is a perfect basis for a DLC.

    Depends on who the lord is really. If It’s someone like Sayl, then Cathay ties into his lore nicely.

    If it’s some Fimir character, or a true Norsca character, then Kislev makes sense.

    I don't believe they couldn't move Sigvald. I don't think they ever wanted to. As evidenced by the fact that they added 4 more monoLords to WoC that they didn't have to.

    You might be right, but the impression I got from the chaos blog they had was that Sigvald being added to WoC was the main cause of a few issues, and is why Azazel was added to WoC

    Pretty equal. Both should get 3-5 LPs.

    NEither. I was a Champions of Chaos style 4 pack with 'sub-races' to make use of useful assets but also adequately and differently add in Hung and Kurgan Lords.

    I'm all about Racial indentity (Damn does that sound bad on paper)

    Each race from Order to chaos should have an all encompassing shtick:

    Warrior of Chaos:
    Warrior in the armies of Chaos Undivided, sadly they put some Monogod LL in it

    Monogod:
    Servant of the Monogod, all of them

    Norsca:
    Norscan, who while being servant of Chaos undivided aren't really trying to become Champion of Chaos and would rather do their own things

    Beastmen:
    Beastmen, simple as.

    That give us remaining likely lord:

    WoC:
    Sayls: Wholly undivided, known for tricking the different daemon into doing his bidding
    Crom: Undivided Champion of Archeon
    4 Lieutenant: As tech tree lord or as Quest Lord. They are attached to Archeon just as much if not more than they are to their own god

    Monogod:
    All character that are devoted to their God (Egil, Tamurkhan, Glottkin...)

    Norscan:
    Beorg Bearstruck: Doesn't have any overly Chaos Mechanic, but lead a Norscan faction
    Rakka: Fimir Meargh LL, Fimir already being in the Norscan Faction

    Let's look at character options.

    Norsca vs kislev:
    The obvious pic for kislev atm is ostankya

    Who is appropriate to face her? A meargh maybe? A odd duo.

    Cathay vs Norsca:
    The obvious pic for norsca is sayl.

    Who for cathay though? The Jade dragon? Seems a odd duo. They kinda messed up this pack by giving miao Ying out so quickly as she's the defender against the norscans IMO.

    Who else is a good pic?

    Empire vs Norsca?

    Mortkin vs Kurt Helborg is a GREAT package deal here. But... I feel this is a later dlc. It's a odd time for this.. it would be cool to have Helborg control the Empire or Ostland on ROC campaign map tho.

    Brettonia vs Norsca?

    Egil styrbjorn is the obvious norsca pic. Vs Bohemind? Maybe? Could be thematic.

    Im gonna bet the answer is "none of the above"

    Norsca vs Great Cathay
    I don't expect a redub to tribes of Chaos but effectively Norsca has become that. And if they do another DLC for them it might very well add the flavors of the others if not outright expand in some surprising ways.

    It just seems like, if they wanted Sigvald to be in Slaanesh, but couldn't move him, then they wouldn't have put the other 3 in WoC when they didn't have to.

    This is the most realistic and was heavily hinted by CA.

    After that Kislev vs VC would be ideal. Baba Yaga vs Neferata.

    I wouldn't mind either of them to be honest, both are cool matchups, but there is something funny about Beorg, a werebear Vs the nation with a bear god.

    Tbf Beorg is a nobody and with Sayl and Mortkin out there his chances for inclusion decreased a lot.

    Tbf Beorg is a werebear. Which immediately makes him more interesting than Sayl and Mortkin, who are just a Chaos Sorcerer and a Chaos Lord.

    Norsca doesn’t have a Sorcerer so Sayl is the number 1 candidate.

    I would love to see Beorg, I’m just saying that he isn’t as likely anymore as he was before.

    Rationally I think it’s the best match with Kislev.

    Irrationally I think I want more bears.

    She was cannon, but she isn't anymore, she was replaced/renamed by Mother something, but everyone call her Baba Yaga cause it's easier to remember
