    I hope it's LM and, with luck, some Albion unique units

    Albion has been at war with lizardmen and even has a ROR that is reknowned for killing lizardmen and wearing their skin as armour and decorations, so i dont think they'd ever follow a lizardmen general.
    Yeah, but the game lore is more "fluid" than the TT lore and as I don't think we will get an Albion faction they could get some love if we get a LL in Albion. VP made this with Aranessa so...

    I find this community hilarious in its assumptions that they actually havr any credibility in their predictions for Legendary Lords and their starting positions. The fact that this community was "so certain" that we were getting a DOW lord pack orginially because Sartosa was added therefore we were definetely getting a DOW/Pirate theme pack, then CA comes out with a 4 lord Vampire Coast pack is hilarious.
    Also the fact that people seem so certain now that Albion wont be anything more than a Lizardmen Legendary Lord position is laughable.
    If CA was to introduce a Lizardmen vs Skaven Lord pack they would have to be in relative proximity to eachother for the two lords to have any chance of even encountering eachother.
    Having Gor Rok or any other Lord on Albion would mean the Skaven Lord would need to either spawn on Ulthuan somehwere to be nearby or in ths northern part of the map, maybe Naggoroth at most. I cant see CA introducing 2 lords but having them on opposite sides of the map.
    Theres just as much chance that Albion could be introduced as a faction in the long run with CA's introduction of the Vampire Coast, and people outright dismissal of it simply shows how shortsighted and nve this community is when it comes to

    Because people didn’t think they would shoehorn unloreful lords into coast in an attempt to justify it being a campaign when it should have been a race honestly.

    There's still the FLC Lizardmen lord. Most people predict that Serpent & Rat will be Tehenhuain in Lustria versus either Ikit Klaw or Thanquol, but the FLC lord doesn't need to have a specific rivalry with skaven.

    Since Albion starts with 100% chaos corruption it could be an Oxyotl start. It'd make sense for him to fight chaos and have frozen/corruption terrain resistance.

    I think it makes sense. CA could give Lizardmen some units from other factions like fimir, giants or maybe truthsayers.

    How lorefull it is idk. But it will suit current "new LL strategy".
    LOVE FOR DIPLOMACY!!! :)

    Don't even remind me of Sartosa being undead. It makes me want to resist this notion even harder.

    I don’t see this as an issue since everyone is discussing it as a potential startpos for the Lizardmen FLC LL. So it doesn’t matter where it is in relation to the Skaven.

    Yeah, that was a bit unexpected for me, even with all the obvious hints we got. People just thought Coast was a race pack/FLC race at best. Devs mostly proved them wrong, even though there are some issues with integration, which are more like issues with production, rather than with actual Coast potential.
    Also, everyone including me thought that first we'll see race, which was presented in TT somehow (DoW) or there would be Undead->Human->Undead->Human approach.

    Vampire Coast doesn't support Albion Race pack Theory in anything, except Legendary Lord section or variants. Afterall, Coast had enough materials to borrow from and to make it unique, compared to others.
    Norsca kinda does support, but Norsca occupy almost same niche as Albion and uses almost same roster. So, while I can't deny that there are lots of possibilities, if Devs would really want to flesh them out, but tbh it would be easier just to add Albion as sub-faction(s) to Norsca with some unique units and mechanics.


    Because people didn’t think they would shoehorn unloreful lords into coast in an attempt to justify it being a campaign when it should have been a race honestly.

    I always said that main reason why Coast should be Campaign Pack, because of roster in first place, then mechanics and then only because of LLs.
    With Race Pack I don't think we would see, everything we see now. In case of DoW/Araby it's easier to make rosters, because of their human theme and not too high magical creature presentation (but yeah, they still would require some new models and definitely new animations, voiceovers, assets etc.)
    And if we look at approach Devs chose, there could be a lot of loreful Lords to chose from.
    I assume Aranessa was chosen because she's kinda a human melee specialist and Direfin was created, because she's a first ghost LL and caster (Hybrid on a mount).There was big demand for both. Maybe gender factor also was part of this decision, but I don't care that much about it, tbh.
    In other cases there could be enough Vampires and Necromancers, which could replace them.
    In case of different format (no competition), Drekla and Vangheist could replace them as well.

    As for Lore, tehnically it's not unloreful, it's just stetched lore for stuff, which wasn't highlighted well and as result give some space for imagination and experiments. I find some stuff debatable from how it was integrated, but there is nothing that could not be easily fixed.

    So...the Light's vaunted justice has finally arrived. Shall I lay down Frostmourne and throw myself at your mercy, Fordring?

    Yeah it's just another norsca territory as it stands now. But I'm looking forward to Albion as a doc or part of TWWH 3
