    We aren't getting any Age of Sigmar content. The gameplay trailer made that perfectly clear, with the total abscence of any AoS Khorne units (that weren't already present in Fantasy).

    So Khorne will only get 2 Heroes? Yeah won’t happen.
    Khorne can get plenty of heroes... They just won't be the Age of Sigmar ones. There are Exalted Heroes, Aspiring Heroes, Heralrds of Khorne, Exalted Daemons of Khorne, and a multitude of other unit champions which can easily be upgraded to hero status. They just won't be Age of Sigmar material. Simle as that.
    Yeah but all of them are the same. What Khorne needs is a Rune Smith or Sigmar Priest type of Hero.
    Aint gonna get Age of Sigmar content. CA said it, and the trailer all but confirmed it.
    Haha so only 2 heroes for Khorne? Yeah won’t happen.
    Again, as I pointed out, there are multiple options for heroes for Khorne. Just won't be Age of Sigmar material...
    They can always just invent a new Hero.
    I mean, yeah, sure. They just won't look like the Age of Sigmar stuff.. I am sure they could get some "Blood Priest" or other invented title and add their own spin to it, which would functionally be a Slaughterpriest.

    The Bloodfather.

    "Each community, whether it is a small village or mighty city, contains at least one shrine dedicated to the Chaos gods [7c], [17d]. Most such sites tend to be caves burrowed into the side of a mountain or hill, but others are free-standing structures. Such sites can be identified from the presence of dark altars, bonfires, mounds of skulls and sacrifices of plunder. Strange runes mark the entryways, forbidding passage to all except full-blooded warriors [7c]. Despite this, even the most fearsome Norse warrior is wary of entering a temple without cause, for the Dark gods are cruel and capricious deities. Maintaining the site is a Seer or Vitki, who either lives in the shrine itself or in a nearby hovel. Shrines dedicated to Khorne are instead tended to by the Bloodfathers [13], [17d]. "

    From the Liber Chaotica I think. Basically a Khorne Shaman.
    This would be Perfect. So the Bloodfather would be a Priest type of Hero I assume?

    Following the WH2 Core Races trend. . .

    • 2 generic lords (Bloodthirster + someone else, probably Khorne Lord)

    • 3 generic heroes
    Exactly.

    Considering that Khorne doesn’t have magic, he needs some sort of buffing hero. Either a Priest or a smith type hero.
    yeah some sort of hype man who just keeps chanting skulls for the skull throne sending nearby troops into an enhanced version of frenzy
    We need this hype boy.

    I really need to finish painting my existing models and then I would be very tempted to go for a Khorne Army. The AoS models are actually quite awesome for them.

    Bohemond for game 3 please!

    yeah. Or alternatively it could be an Arch-Lector type Lord and a "lesser Bloodfather", maybe the afore mentioned "Blood Priest" as hero.

    The point of a race not having magic is not simply giving them some other kind of magic.

    Which however needs a major rework.

    Since the person that just disagreed with my post of Runemagic needing a rework apparently doesn't want to explain why not...

    Yes: Rune magic needs a major rework. The runes are unimpressive, the Rune of Wrath and Ruin a Joke and the Anvil of Doom has no Doom at all. Runecrafting is missing completely and the Runes at best are glorified banners...

    Yes agreed it needs a major rework (hopefully in next WH2 DLC) - nothing to exclude Khorne from getting a sort of 'War Leader' who buffs troops with the favor of Khorne / yelling / etc

    I'm so sad that we're not getting Skarbrand, Valkya, a Nurgle army, and a Blood dlc because they were not shown in this trailer :'(

    I'm not saying we're going to get AOS stuff but saying we're not is just as stupid as saying we are.

    Nice attempt at strawmanning. Not what I was saying though... Nice try. I'll give you.. 2/5 for effort at least.

    Yes and no.

    We will not be getting anything that was created completely within AoS such as the Deepkin or Stormcast Eternals, but anything that is already present lorewise in the old world and does not have its origin in AoS lis fair game.

    If it is only a VISUAL new thing in AoS, but has already existed in the old world and is described that way in the lore? Sure.

    The visuals of Slaanesh followers for example is likely to appear, because they have already been described that way before Age of Sigmar, yet never gotten a tabletop representation like that.

    Obviously we are getting content that was present in Fantasy... Because that is literally Fantasy content.. AoS content is the stuff that only exist in AoS or was created for that setting. For example N'kari is completely fine, while Shalaxi Helbane is never gonna show up in a million years. No AoS content means, no content created in AoS.

    Everyone keeps linking that slaughterpriest model and looking at the marks on his head but I don't think it's close. Notice the big horn thing which is a big part of the design.

    The marks on the guy's head look more like the Avatar turned to Khorne to defeat the Fore Nation.

    ....wait, people think those are scars?

    It's just the mark of chaos, the eight-pointed star, painted on his head, centered around the top of his head. Just that only one of its points is easily visible.

    Or at least, that's what the arrow design implies to me.
