    Don't forget that the new Ice Guard might have their own bear cavalry since one of the concept arts for the bear cavalry has a very magical ice theme around it, and I doubt a bear like that is going to be ridden by an ordinary lancer.

    With the Tzarina being a caster lord I really don't see what a hag LL offers. At least Ulrika could have lore of vampires and a couple of specific vampire units; could be very interesting.

    Depends if the Hag would get the Chicken-Legged Hut or not as a mount. If she did, that makes her a hybrid/melee caster, in constrast to Katarin as a more standard caster lord.
    God no, Warhammer is silly at times but that thing is just plain stupid and should be forgotten about.

    It would ruin the astetic of the game
    I gotta agree, the idea of a chicken legged house is.... so ridiculous I'm surprised they even added it in, in the first place. And that's supposed to be from my culture's mythology and I still find it utterly ridiculous in Warhammer. Then again, the RPG can be a really silly place at times. Like, for instance, the dung collector class.

    Sorry if i prefer Warhammer Fantasy to stick with its satirical gallows humor roots instead of being grimdark for the sake of grimdarkness like 40,000.

    I respect that.

    I personally got into WH with TWWH and Mark of Chaos ages ago so I only know the Grimdark WH we have know.

    Satirical humour and WH don’t fit together in my opinion. Fantasy settings in general are not something that should be turned into something ridiculous...

    I know that these were the roots of WH, but we don’t have the 80s anymore. Fantasy settings these days should be dark and epic and not a parodic joke. Think about LotR, GoT, the Witcher...

    LOTR isn't darker than medieval epics and bible stories unless you include the stories of Feanor and Turin Turambar.

    The Witcher is anything but grimdark, especially the early books.

    And ASOIAF shouldn't be considered the be all end all of ''serious'' fantasy.

    I also like the early satire of Warhammer, it's was never meant to be a serious setting, hence all the tropes, stereotypes, cliches, pseudo-historical references and funny factions. For me WHF has a perfect balance of not being a serious world but still making sense, when I read novels set in Fantasy I still feel like it's an actual functioning world.

    Kinda why I prefer it over AoS, Age of Sigmar went away from that and decided to become it's own generic, boring, serious fantasy world, while also being even weirder than fantasy but it doesn't have that same humour hence that weirdness feels alien and overdone.

    Comment that Ulrika is a vampire vampire hunter, she would not use units associated with vampires. And she makes room for a campaign with interesting mechanics that differ from the constant conflict against Chaos that the Kislevites will have.

    I‘m neither edgy, nor angry, I’m actually the opposite of that but whatever. 😂
    Just want my fantasy settings to be serious, that’s it.

    I think the major point here is age difference. The Oldhammer Guard grew up with fantasy being a niche genre for weird nerds only, while the younger generations grew up in a society where fantasy is part of the pop culture and super mainstream. Hell I don’t know anybody who doesn’t like GoT, Witcher, LotR or stuff like that.

    You know... just because I like grimdark and epic fantasy settings, I’m not an angsty emo teen... this assumption is pretty ridiculous. 😂

    I‘m a young man in his mid 20s that loves to travel, doing sports and party as much as possible... so my life already is quite fun to be honest. Sometimes I just want to experience a grimdark fantasy world with epic characters and WH gives me exactly that.

    I think you are onto something there! At the very least that looks like a Lord mount option; but those ice gems are very clearly the 'sign' of the Kislev ice guard.

    I really love the Ice Guard and bear cavalry concepts; Kislev needed what "wow" factor that it's core roster didn't really have.

    Very much agree. While I'd love Ulrika to come with Kislev, I to am opposed to her being some sort of undead hybrid faction.

    But some /people are always trying to ice skate up hill.

    You sound like an edgy angry young man who wants to be as ''mature'' as possible by throwing dirt at things i enjoy. ''True art is angsty'' and all that jazz. Much like Michael Moorcock and his ''Epic Pooh'' BS.

    Just because something isn't grimdark doesn't mean it isn't good.

    What's so grimdark about the Silmarillion and the Witcher?

    Please, the skaven use technology called the Farsqueeker to communicate at a distance. They have weaponized hamster wheels. Orks money is teef, and our last ll for them was an excessively fat goblin called.the Paunch. The entire DE edgelord goth aesthetic. The Dogs of War are filled with crazy stuff. I find Bretonnian midevil nights ridiculous in an era of guns and sails. They put trebuchets on ships, lol.

    Warhammer had grimdark but it also is silly. Very silly.

    Please, the skaven use technology called the Farsqueeker to communicate at a distance. They have weaponized hamster wheels. Orks money is teef, and our last ll for them was an excessively fat goblin called.the Paunch. The entire DE edgelord goth aesthetic. The Dogs of War are filled with crazy stuff. I find Bretonnian midevil nights ridiculous in an era of guns and sails. They put trebuchets on ships, lol.

    Warhammer had grimdark but it also is silly. Very silly.

    With the Tzarina being a caster lord I really don't see what a hag LL offers. At least Ulrika could have lore of vampires and a couple of specific vampire units; could be very interesting.

    Depends if the Hag would get the Chicken-Legged Hut or not as a mount. If she did, that makes her a hybrid/melee caster, in constrast to Katarin as a more standard caster lord.
    God no, Warhammer is silly at times but that thing is just plain stupid and should be forgotten about.

    It would ruin the astetic of the game
    I gotta agree, the idea of a chicken legged house is.... so ridiculous I'm surprised they even added it in, in the first place. And that's supposed to be from my culture's mythology and I still find it utterly ridiculous in Warhammer. Then again, the RPG can be a really silly place at times. Like, for instance, the dung collector class.

    I always disagreed with the greenskins being the only source of levity. The whole Warhammer world is peppered with moments of humor. Dark humor but still humor. Bretonnia being a bunch of walking, talking Monty Python references (though they were more serious and less dickish before 6th edition), Dwarves being revenge obsessed sticks in the mud that go into self-destructive wars for reasons that any rational person would find stupid. Ogres being a bunch of fat manchildren obsessed with food and being casual about cannibalism. The prince of Altdorf short story has a minotaur getting stupidly stuck in a inn's door and imperial soldiers casually trampling over the poor innkeeper and leave him to be killed by the Beastmen.

    Warhammer becomes grimdark only when Chaos and undead are involved.

    Halflings being a whole race of fat cooks and angry housewives that use their cooking pots as weapons.
    That’s why Halflings should never be added
    Sorry if i prefer Warhammer Fantasy to stick with its satirical gallows humor roots instead of being grimdark for the sake of grimdarkness like 40,000.
    I respect that.

    I personally got into WH with TWWH and Mark of Chaos ages ago so I only know the Grimdark WH we have know.

    Satirical humour and WH don’t fit together in my opinion. Fantasy settings in general are not something that should be turned into something ridiculous...

    I know that these were the roots of WH, but we don’t have the 80s anymore. Fantasy settings these days should be dark and epic and not a parodic joke. Think about LotR, GoT, the Witcher...
    LOTR isn't darker than medieval epics and bible stories unless you include the stories of Feanor and Turin Turambar.

    The Witcher is anything but grimdark, especially the early books.

    And ASOIAF shouldn't be considered the be all end all of ''serious'' fantasy.

    You sound like an edgy angry young man who wants to be as ''mature'' as possible by throwing dirt at things i enjoy. ''True art is angsty'' and all that jazz. Much like Michael Moorcock and his ''Epic Pooh'' BS.

    I‘m neither edgy, nor angry, I’m actually the opposite of that but whatever. 😂
    Just want my fantasy settings to be serious, that’s it.

    I think the major point here is age difference. The Oldhammer Guard grew up with fantasy being a niche genre for weird nerds only, while the younger generations grew up in a society where fantasy is part of the pop culture and super mainstream. Hell I don’t know anybody who doesn’t like GoT, Witcher, LotR or stuff like that.

    You know... just because I like grimdark and epic fantasy settings, I’m not an angsty emo teen... this assumption is pretty ridiculous. 😂

    I‘m a young man in his mid 20s that loves to travel, doing sports and party as much as possible... so my life already is quite fun to be honest. Sometimes I just want to experience a grimdark fantasy world with epic characters and WH gives me exactly that.
    Just because something isn't grimdark doesn't mean it isn't good.

    What's so grimdark about the Silmarillion and the Witcher?

    Inappropriate Comment removed.


    The closest thing to Grimdark in the Silmarillion would be the story of Turin and his family but that's more like a classical tragedy than a gloom & doom story with violence and gore in your face.
