    Shen Zoo was named / hinted - my bet is LH.

    If by hinted you mean 100% confirmed that she won't arrive, then yes.
    Was she? That's sad. When and who said that?
    The ending of Grand Cathay's campaign.
    Ending of Cathay campaign was:
    "Go North to find her."

    That's it. Next campaign could be about saving her.
    What next campaign???

    And Andy himself confirmed that GW only allowed them to use her for narrative reasons and that we won't see her in the game beyond mentions.
    Being only MacGuffin is sad fate.

    Would you please tell me where and when Andy wrote that? I can't find it.
    In one of the various interviews he gave before release, one of the Lorebeard videos with Sotek and GBoG.
    Specifically the 2nd one, when we actually knew her "fate".

    On Cathay we know that the armybook - that was made in large part for CA to have something to work on for Cathay, has 6 LLs. These are the 5 active Dragon Siblings (Miao Ying, Zhao Ming, Yuan Bao, Yin Yin and Li Dao) plus the Monkey King. I would be surprised if we get any LLs who aren't one of those 6.

    I forgot about Neferata, so I added her to the list.

    I have not heard or seen any direct hint towards Nagash or Drachenfels, though. Did CA say anything about them specifically?

    Nagash "if he turns up, it'll be trying to become a god"
    Drachenfels "Don't expect to see him".

    Don't remember the exact interview.
    For in spite of all temptations. To belong to other nations. He remains an Englishman.

    Finubar? he was metnioned several times in W2 narrative.

    You're basically playing as Finubar when you play a Lothern campaign, that's what the dilemmas are about.

    O_0
    Vampire Counts 8th edition, before Endtimes retcon


    TWW2






    TWW3 gamefiles




    No, CA did not flat out say that Nagash will come in any way or form. But the hints are piling up and the same way we all knew N'kari will be around, it looks not that bad for Nagash.

    Story-wise Game3 happens before Game2. Hopefully, Finubar will star in the final HE LP.

    Assuming HE even get another lord pack (which is a big if). It will be Aislinn.

    which is a big if

    Is it? CA skipping on an army book unit seems like they are planning another HE DLC.

    If Shen Zoo doesn't do better Taijutsu than Miao Ying, I don't wanna her in the game

    Taijutsu is a japanese term, like all jutsus and dos... Grand Cathay is based on China. We have a different fantasy nation for Japan-inspired stuff.
    Ugh, I have spoken.

    Good thing GW has never directly said the Nameless is Drachenfels. There is a reason he is nameless.

    Nowhere did they state what named lords are in the armybook.


    They talked alot about the background lore in the armybook. The elector counts are mentioned and named in the empire armybook, doesn't mean they are playable chracters in the armybook.

    Do the dilemmas say anything about Finubar? no, meaning -- no.

    I know the nameless / Drachenfel was mentioned in a lore section in a vampire coast camp,but beyond this i can't recall any other mention in interviews or gameplay am I missing something?

    I'm starting to think Thanquol might come soon tbh.

    Several reasons:

    1. He's possibly the most popular lore character
    2. Skv are a popular faction (sorry)
    3. If I was running the release schedule I would be concentrating on wins after the wh3 release which means stuff that is going to reinvigorate the playerbase. After IE, thanquol is the most anticipated addition to the game (closely followed by Chorfs).
    4. Related to (1-3) if IE flops then thanquol would potentially give them a 3rd bite at getting the playerbase back
    5. It seems unlikely that we're now looking at 6-7 years of DLC content for WH3 now, possibly more like 3-4 which shifts when we would expect to see new stuff as there isn't the natual successor of a followup game (as in WH2). This means that popular content is much much more likely to be front loaded rather than kept for later to keep people engaged in the series.
    6. GW and CA don't always collaborate regarding timelines but AoS is about to receive a new Skaven army book and new miniatures, if there is *any* communication then the thanquol dlc would be best released early whilst skaven TT fever is high (within a year, as that's the window where new army books make factions competitive in TT).

    No, it is not 'a big if', and it will be Phoenix King Finubar the Seafarer, who will finish HE on a high note.

    Really overestimating how popular thanqol is and how popular skaven are.

    CA stated HE and Empire were the most popular factions of their respective games.
  • DjauDjau Registered Users Posts: 10,410
    Skaven are extremely popular. HE, Empire and Chaos more so, but still extremely popular.

    Why do they refer to him as iron hat?
    I like all the races. Equally. Wood elves are just the first among equals.
  • MythrilSoulMythrilSoul Registered Users Posts: 1,035

    Why do they refer to him as iron hat?

    orcs are not very "erudite" so the dont know who in gork's name is nagash, the great necromancer, lord of undeath, greatest enemy of sigmar and the chaos gods; its a talking iron hat so they call it iron hat
