    Tzeentch so far looks amazing. It’s just the warriors that suck.
    Just look at Kairos. He looks absolutely gorgeous

    You're now responsible for it if this occurs.
    What do you mean? I want her to move differently even though she has 4 arms like Ghorgon. All humans are have 2 arms but not all of them have the same animation.
    You have brought forth the thought.
    oh it's been brought forward numerous times

    i kinda wish the Exalted Bloodthirster had a greatweapon variant as the Lord option (yes im aware of the SEM unit)

    Imho those normal Bloodthirsters (as well as any other greater daemons) should've been heroes! It would be absolutely fitting if we could spec and equip them all individually! Also most should be wizards...

    On the topic: It's gorgeous, but I'm with @mecanojavi99 . The FW models for exalted greater daemons would've added some welcome variety and they are just overall great.

    I think it is fair to say, that so far all the Daemons have looked good.

    The soul grinder is a butt ugly abomination that should have been left in the mists of the past

    Other than that yea Ca really did the demons revealed so far justice

    Think the only model we haven't seen so far is the Great Unclean One.

    The Slaanesh daemon looked like a pervy goat in the screenshot we saw, I'm hoping it looks a bit better when animated and in full.

    Disc Riders, Spawn and Forsaken too.
    Albion would make the perfect Total War Warhammer 3 pre-order; with Hengus the Druid and Bran MacKerog as Legendary Lords.

    We're paying full price for a Chaos Warrior of Tzeentch without any actual Tzeentch markings or changes to the model? Change this now CA, #JusticeForTzeentch #TLM

    To be fair, the stupid whirling animation would probably fit the keeper of secrets more.

    It’s quite possible that in actual fact the KoS’s animation was reused for the Ghorgon and that’s part of why they managed to squeeze so many unique monsters into that LP.

    The animations are supposedly the most expensive part of making new things.

    Far from it, it looks like a abomination straight up from the hells of DOOM

    Seriously it´s SO aesthetically vomit inducing/straight up eyesore in it´s current form that it´s baffling Ca/GW did not deign to remake it

    All they had to do was exchange the metal lower body with bones, then it would have fit into warhammer fantasy

    Right now it´s icky icky icky

    i meant more as an adaptation. I'm not a big fan of it myself but CA managed to adapt it as well they could without changing it completely.

    Why would it ? The only thing in common is that they have both 4 arms but the bodies are very different.

    Hope Keeper of Secrets won't reuse Ghorgon's animation

    It's worth noting that the in-game Ghorgon has the blade arms on the lower pair and the hands on the higher pair (which is actually the contrary to the tabletop mini) while the newer tabletop KoS has pincers on the top arms and a single sword-carrying hand on the lower pair (or shield and lance in the case of Shalaxi Helbane, not sure if the generic one also has that option). It's always possible KoS have their arms swapped too from their tabletop versions, but overall I'd say it'd be a bit hard to fit the Ghorgon attack animations to the KoS.

    Plus people started wondering if the Ghorgon was using the same animations for the KoS because they were "too graceful and/or agile" for a Ghorgon... but I don't think the attacks are all that graceful at all. Even the spin doesn't seem particularly disciplined/agile, but maybe that's just me. Body posture might also be a tough fit, with how hunched over the Ghorgon is, and the KoS presumably being a little slimmer

    Khorne is badass af. I love his faction.

    Some people doesn't like him, but I do. I just hope the DLC will give him more content, like chosen or chaos knight of khorne. The only part I dont like is the soul grinder too 40k ish. I would like a little reskin for the cyborg part to make it more ''fantasy battle''

    The look of the Soul Grinder actually fits him more than the other gods; Khorne's had a DooM kind of cybery look forever. Look at the Skullcrushers, their mount is robotic.

    I can only hope that those somewhat disappointing weapon strengths will be made up for with sweeping and brutal animations.

    A Bloodthirster should be more destructive against infantry than the Tomb Scorpion is for example.

    Something like Taurox, with slamming through formation hen bulldozing in combat would be good.

    Edit: I am aware that the stats are refelctive of TT, and I forgot to mention how amazing they look as well. Skarbrand alone has me excited
  • jamreal18jamreal18 Senior Member Registered Users Posts: 12,767
    If CA will transfe4 Ghorgon animation to keeper of Secrets, that would be better as long as they will give Ghorgon new animation.

    Wouldn't it be hilarious to see both them spinning. Muscular and Slim monster both spinning? They would seem like dancing in battle.

    Imagine they fight each other with exact animation wherein they both spin.

    I want KoS to dance on the battlefield, every move brimming with grace and precision. Ghorgon is a sloppy fighter.

    Well so far from what I can tell it seems
    they have quight few brutal animation attacks. Starting from the SEM version bloodthirster the great axe wielder his atack animations are quight wide reaching so large array of infantry are going to be scattered around almost constantly and he has a powerful leap attack that will help him easily push through formations and finally the main scary thing about the SEM bloodthirster is the fact he has few multi attack animations which means dew for his animation he may hit his enemies moltable times per attack action animation. To put it in perspective it's the same reason why gotrek is so powerful in combat not only because he hits like a truck but becouse he has an attack animation that lets him swing his axe moltable times wich basically doubles his damage.

    And the lord vertion bloodthirster well so far his attack animation are alot more wider reaching then that of a SEM version dew for the wip and his extensive fire breath attack animations I do not now if it it counts as an multi attack animation but he is definitely alot more swingy then the SEM bloodthirster .atleast this is what I managed to observe from the given gameplay footages
