    Would love to see him. Slaanesh really needs better characters to be on par with Nurgle.

    AoS is very hit and miss with Slaanesh characters. The Newborn looks amazing and is extremely interesting. Meanwhile, Syll'esque is an abomination that'd make Nurgle Isabella looks great.

    If we need more Slaanesh characters, GW and CA just need to rework characters with potential but that are utterly outdated, like Azazel. Let's give him a better name too, this one is just too on the nose.
    I have no idea what is wrong with Syll'esque? It is a great model imo
    I personally dislike this model because he looks way too alien, that's the only thing I can think of when looking at it.

    That's an AoS model. Different IP. Updating Demon models to their AoS versions is completely different to importing a character from said IP.

    Personally I see SLaaanesh's 4 as:

    - Dechala
    - N'kari
    - Sigvald
    - Azazel

    But they can't take a Lord from Chaos Warriors and include it in Chaos demons, it would be just wrong unless they pay it back with a Chaos Warrior Lord for the old DLC.
    Monogods aren't Chaos Demons. We're not actually getting DoC in game 3 sadly.

    I see no reason Sigvald can't be both, and they can give WoC another LL in addition to that regardless.

    I know, I'm hoping GW is making an updated army list for all races, best way to make WH3 even longer.

    I would quite like a legendary man like that for slaanesh because he looks great and shows gluttony, a very little excess representing.
    However I doubt it will happen, demonic characters such as shalaxi, Dexcessa and Synessa or syll'eske have more opportunities because they are demons present in all the warhammer universes, however glutos no, an absolute sadness

    That would not make sense because Fantasy as we know it is dead, we are getting the Old World, and it takes place around the time of the invasion of Asavar Kul.

    For all we know, Chaos may not even bee in the game at the start.

    Oh I could do a whole thesis on everything I dislike about Syll'esque, ranking from logical to petty. I just really don't like him.
    I don't like his stupid face. I don't like how this supposed champion of slaanesh is just a bald grey dude in boring rags and ritual scars. I don't like the entire concept of a daemonette waifu, it go against every known lore for demons, daemonettes and Slaanesh alike. I don't like how the daemonette looks like, they made her look way "cuter" and frailer and meeker than other daemonettes. Her whole pose is also ridiculous, that circle thing is an fashion faux-pas of a galactic level.

    You get the picture. Me not like.

    The sad thing is that the idea of doing a Slaanesh take on love is fascinating. But GW chose the blandest, worst, ugliest most boring way to explore it both visually and narratively.
    Esske visually seems like a reference to Xerxes from 300 imo (even seen a great paint job that makes him look like the character), and I really like that, and his character is a twist on Spartacus (gladiator who wishes to kill tyrants). Can't see an issue with that.

    Syll, well I am not sure waifu is completely correct but even if it is, I don't see an issue. Syll was "spurned by Slaanesh's courtiers for growing too attached to those the Herald had chosen for inspiration". Dedication, attachment, dependency, obsession, call it what you will, but all these things are subject to excess, and thus fall into Slaanesh's perview - thus a daemon of Slaanesh could easily exhibit these traits (and acting as if anime was not Slaanesh's true presense on this earth I feel is a mistake in and of itself :tongue: ). Also I don't see why a Daemonette looking "cuter" is too much of a stretch as Daemonettes are not all cast in one mold, and given that they have a habit of hypnotising those around them one could argue that Syll is in a "masked" state.

    I mean I can't argue with you on the grounds of appearence, if you don't like how they look then you don't like how they look. But I don't think they at all clash with the themes of Slaanesh.

    Might be the paint job, there is an excellent Xerxes style paintjob of him which I think fits much better (personally feel the model of Esske was based to a degree on the 300 character).



    Think this looks a lot better

    Didnt they already say no AOS stuff in game 3?

    And what is "stuff"? Mind you, I also not expecting (or think it's needed) named characters or entire AoS races, but it's clear that "stuff" doesnt mean "anything" because we are getting AoS "stuff". We are getting its aesthetics as shown by the greater daemons in the trailer and we are getting its interpretation of Chaos, as monogods never had separate army books in WHFB - and that's "stuff" to me. So it seems perfectly reasonable to get a few units too and maybe characters like this Slaanesh fatso as a generic lord/hero or as an unit - I mentioned this in a thread when this model was announced, but replace him with a Slaanesh herald or with a generic mortal follower and you have yourself an unique looking Slaanesh Warshrine that fits fantasy just fine IMO.

    Of course he looks alien, Esske ascended to become a daemon prince.

    I hear you, but my problem with it is just that it's all so bland. He's litteraly just a pit fighter that's in love with a daemonette. You couldn't make it more milquetoast if you tried ! It's Slaanesh, it's supposed to be excessive, grand, it's supposed to be awe-inspiring, you could do so much more on such a strong concept as love !

    Basically, that's my main gripe, GW had such a cool concept on how a Slaanesh worshipper would approach love, its fascinating, and yet they went the safest, least interesting way. They made a big dude in love with a cute frail girl. One on one, monogamous, traditional lovey love between big dude and smol girl. That's the most trite, overused, basic idea of love since ever ! Every movie have it, that's not a fun twist, that's not a novel approach.

    Like, for one, why is it just a classic couple ? It's Slaanesh for god's sake ! Makes it crazy, make it wild, make it obsessive !

    How about a group of lovers who fused together in a horrific yet sensual manner ? How about a champion that is obsessed over the very idea of love, and who took in a loving couple, protecting them and treating them halfway between a subject of adoration and play dolls, to act exactly how he picture love should be ? What about two champions fated by Slaanesh to die against eachother, yet madly in love ?

    Honestly, the possibilites are endless. It's just so disappointing that they chose the most boring, predictable way out to the point that they even had to make a daemonette turn into a cute fragile waifu to fit their overused mold.

    They are a symbiotic force now, they fight with syncronocity. Syll doesn't just watch him fight, she also helped him become a daemon prince by mentoring him. They were both outcasts and through one another they have ascended.

    That's an AoS model. Different IP. Updating Demon models to their AoS versions is completely different to importing a character from said IP.

    Personally I see SLaaanesh's 4 as:

    - Dechala
    - N'kari
    - Sigvald
    - Azazel

    And this is now a 40K unit.

    In terms of portraying love I hate that. That's awful. As a model it's okay.

    I'm for AoS minies in TWWH3 where they make sense but Glutos is very specifically a character from AoS with an AoS specific backstory and role in AoS lore.

    He does not belong in WHFB.

    Is the mini cool? Yes. It's super cool.
    But we have a TON of Chaos character options, including for Slaanesh. Way more than we are likely to ever get even by the game's end. There is no good excuse for adding in characters from millenia in the timeline's future. This is not a "reverse-repanse" case.
    Glutos' backstory is entrenched in a time and place where Slaanesh is an imprisoned god being harvested by elves for the souls he ate when WHFB ended. It's just too messy.

    Mod him in? Sure, but he should not take official billing over any of the over half a dozen other characters Slaanesh has to offer from WHFB.

    I think it will be better if Glutos will stay pure AoS character. This universe really need more own characters.

    Slaanesh already have 6 interesting choices for his legendary lords in game 3:
    1. N'Kari - Keeper of Secrets
    2. Masque of Slaanesh - Herald of Slaanesh
    3. Azazel - Daemon Prince of Slaanesh
    4. Sigvald - Chaos Lord of Slaanesh(Infantry focus)
    5. Styrkaar - Chaos Lord of Slaanesh(cavalry focus)
    6. Dechala - Snake Lady of Slaanesh

    This is honestly the perfect line up for Slaanesh.
    6 badass and very distinctive LLs offering different playstyles and army builds.

    Dudes an AoS character, it makes no sense for him to be in a Warhammer Fantasy game.

    If CA invents new units, I think they have much more possibilities with Slaneesh than any other god. The theme of Nurgle (Pestilence), Khorne (Anger, War) and Tzeentch (Magic, Knowledge) seems to me (a little bit) more limited than Slaneesh.

    There we could have units that represent Lust, Gluttony, Vanity, Pride etc.
    We could have units that play around with a music theme (I like the noise marines take in WH40K), beauty theme, dance/dancer theme, seduction theme...

    I think you could do so much with a god of excess, because it can come in various forms. Hope CA will go crazy!

    I like the model, and I would like to see it in the game, but if I were to choose AoS character to be ported to FB then Syll'Esske would be my choice. The SoT-like foot LL is a delicious idea.






    To make excess not only sex (multi-titted) focused, gluttony would be a nice addition.

    The bolded part implies that it's already present, while in truth the most recent humanoid miniatures are nothing like that. Slaanesh could actually use some multiple bosoms.

    Would love to see him. Slaanesh really needs better characters to be on par with Nurgle.

    AoS is very hit and miss with Slaanesh characters. The Newborn looks amazing and is extremely interesting. Meanwhile, Syll'esque is an abomination that'd make Nurgle Isabella looks great.

    If we need more Slaanesh characters, GW and CA just need to rework characters with potential but that are utterly outdated, like Azazel. Let's give him a better name too, this one is just too on the nose.
    I have no idea what is wrong with Syll'esque? It is a great model imo
    Oh I could do a whole thesis on everything I dislike about Syll'esque, ranking from logical to petty. I just really don't like him.
    I don't like his stupid face. I don't like how this supposed champion of slaanesh is just a bald grey dude in boring rags and ritual scars. I don't like the entire concept of a daemonette waifu, it go against every known lore for demons, daemonettes and Slaanesh alike. I don't like how the daemonette looks like, they made her look way "cuter" and frailer and meeker than other daemonettes. Her whole pose is also ridiculous, that circle thing is an fashion faux-pas of a galactic level.

    You get the picture. Me not like.

    The sad thing is that the idea of doing a Slaanesh take on love is fascinating. But GW chose the blandest, worst, ugliest most boring way to explore it both visually and narratively.
    Esske visually seems like a reference to Xerxes from 300 imo (even seen a great paint job that makes him look like the character), and I really like that, and his character is a twist on Spartacus (gladiator who wishes to kill tyrants). Can't see an issue with that.

    Syll, well I am not sure waifu is completely correct but even if it is, I don't see an issue. Syll was "spurned by Slaanesh's courtiers for growing too attached to those the Herald had chosen for inspiration". Dedication, attachment, dependency, obsession, call it what you will, but all these things are subject to excess, and thus fall into Slaanesh's perview - thus a daemon of Slaanesh could easily exhibit these traits (and acting as if anime was not Slaanesh's true presense on this earth I feel is a mistake in and of itself :tongue: ). Also I don't see why a Daemonette looking "cuter" is too much of a stretch as Daemonettes are not all cast in one mold, and given that they have a habit of hypnotising those around them one could argue that Syll is in a "masked" state.

    I mean I can't argue with you on the grounds of appearence, if you don't like how they look then you don't like how they look. But I don't think they at all clash with the themes of Slaanesh.
    I hear you, but my problem with it is just that it's all so bland. He's litteraly just a pit fighter that's in love with a daemonette. You couldn't make it more milquetoast if you tried ! It's Slaanesh, it's supposed to be excessive, grand, it's supposed to be awe-inspiring, you could do so much more on such a strong concept as love !

    Basically, that's my main gripe, GW had such a cool concept on how a Slaanesh worshipper would approach love, its fascinating, and yet they went the safest, least interesting way. They made a big dude in love with a cute frail girl. One on one, monogamous, traditional lovey love between big dude and smol girl. That's the most trite, overused, basic idea of love since ever ! Every movie have it, that's not a fun twist, that's not a novel approach.

    Like, for one, why is it just a classic couple ? It's Slaanesh for god's sake ! Makes it crazy, make it wild, make it obsessive !

    How about a group of lovers who fused together in a horrific yet sensual manner ? How about a champion that is obsessed over the very idea of love, and who took in a loving couple, protecting them and treating them halfway between a subject of adoration and play dolls, to act exactly how he picture love should be ? What about two champions fated by Slaanesh to die against eachother, yet madly in love ?

    Honestly, the possibilites are endless. It's just so disappointing that they chose the most boring, predictable way out to the point that they even had to make a daemonette turn into a cute fragile waifu to fit their overused mold.
    Well it does kind of reference that with Sylle being spurned by other Heralds for her attachment, and I don't think it is the case that they just fell in love and that was the story - Sylle at least seems to have a habit of getting attached to her charges, so it might be more that this one actually became immortal eventually.

    But fine, I see your issue. I personally don't have a problem with it, but I see why you do.

    As to a champion obsessed with love....

    I simply mean in terms of it being a Character from AoS, that spread to the rest of the game systems but I've been up a long time....

    Sorry I just never knew it was meant to represent love. What a dumb model for that.

    DoC have always been across both systems. I just don't want AoS characters in WHFB. If we do though I demand Saint Celestine, technically a Demon that one.
