    Boris flc for Beastmen owners. Ar Ulric dlc with Middenheim units plus another LL.

    That's my guess.

    Hm. Haven't thought about that. Interesting, it could work indeed.

    Can we also get Dieter Helsnicht?

    isn't Markus Wulfhart from or at least operates in Middenland even though he the Huntsmarshal for the Empire?
    I could see him as the DLC LL along with Huntsmen.

    He's from Middenland, yes.

    there are so many nice characters... and i would like to ahve them all...
    The Empire still hasn't gotten their FLC LL. We need Marius Leitdorf of Averland!

    Where is Boris Todbringer? Have you seen him? For a Middenland DLC with Boris and the Ar-Ulric!

    Every wrong is recorded. Every slight against us, page after page, ETCHED IN BLOOD!

    Queek could smell their hatred, ratcheted to a degree that even he could not evoke in their simple hearts. He stepped over the old orange-fur’s body, eager to see for himself what it was they saw. But he heard it first.

    I hope Old Friend is not something for VC again. This would not be fair while other factions are lacking stuff badly.

    I don't think anyone thinks it will be a VC character. Some say Boris (I don't), some say Marius (I don't), some say a mechanic (possible), and I say it will be a trailer for Game II, or Kislev. Or it could be Felix Jaegar, which seems more likely to me than Boris or Marius.
    trailer for Game II would make as much sense for the "Old Friend" moniker as the suggestions that it might be Ariel/Sigmar/God-Emperor of Men imho... and Felix Jaeger? Without Gotrek Gurnisson? Would be kinda lacking a bit wouldnt it? Like Skarsnik without Gobbla...
    I just don't trust CA to not do something shady after the VCLL was the MWNL contest reward. I thought we would be getting ANOTHER new LL, not the one that was already promised. Furthermore, if its a trailer, it explains the lack of release date, as it has to be released x time before Game 2 is ready.

    As far as Felix goes, others have found evidence for him in the audio files just like Isabella.
    I knew she was supposed to be FLC as soon as she was announced, and I was right. However, I don't think it could be a trailer for game 2. It has an Empire background. The Empire is the only base game race with less than 4 LLs or a subfaction (I personally don't get the craze behind them but other people want them.). It has to be something to do with the Empire. I still haven't discounted it being revealed ALONGSIDE a game 2 trailer and providing some connecting tissue to the location of game 2.

    There would be lots of interesting ways to do Middenland.

    You could have Wulfhart in the game in various ways. As a hero he could have a % chance of joining an army that's fighting Beastmen or Orcs, for example. Or he could be Legendary hero. As a LL (an odd one) he'd be a nice change of pace from the usual Empire lord choices, operating kind of like a Waystalker.

    Beastmen would be a big issue. They could also add in Helsnicht and maybe give him Brass Keep (a good defensive position) or one of Middenland's settlements (breaking up their power), with him starting at war with you. That and the Beastmen would probably keep Middenland from steamrolling over the Empire.

    We are all guessing, to be honest - and that's what CA will have been hoping for. This is producing really good engagement. There's loads of cool stuff in Warhammer and a lot of it will likely never make it in.

    I don't know why this is still much of a debate. Three points to who is really the old friend...

    1 in the bretonia streams the devs said that Kemmler would be getting some love

    2 in the PC gamer interview they said the team has mostly moved on to the 2nd game (so the likelihood of something else AND Kemmler getting some love would be small)

    3 the wording is important... friend meaning they are usually together, (connected in more ways than Boris is with the Emperor) and... old meaning "dilapidated, broken-down, beat-up, run-down, tumbledown, ramshackle, decaying, crumbling, disintegrating" in other words undead.

    Sure, if we ignore the background to the image of the FLC which has been 100% accurate in giving us hints to what it might be and in this case is an Empire building.

    But do go on.

    I am really hoping that the last FLC is Boris released alongside a DLC which adds 2 or so legendary heroes for each main faction.

    I am going to guess that it will be Commander Morgan Bernhardt from Shadow of the Horned Rat and Dark Omen.

    No evidence and almost no chance, but I have a wish.

    This one gets it!!

    I really hope its Morgan Bernhardt aswell.
    It needs to be pointed out that what people call "cheese" is just playing the game the way it actually exists not in some fictional way they think it is supposed to work.

    Yeah nah no free lc for dlc. It`s going to invovle some of the base factions, not wood elves and such.

    Jabberslythe for the Empire? I can already feel the outrage fromt he Beastmen fans... til now the background of the FLC list pictures gave a hint for what the FLC is... Orc banners for Wurrzag, Vampire building for Vlad... and oyu suggest that the Jabberslythe will have an Empire building int he background?

    Maybe as a free update as harpies or chaos units.

    Middenland and Averland would be perfect for me.
