I hadn't even considered that. It would be a way to get a reasonably balanced product to market quickly.

The danger there is the same one 40k 2nd ed ran into, if you don't have an analytical system underpinning the army's skills and abilities the it becomes harder to produce quality, balanced army books. And in 2nd ed it took far too long to get that first run of codices out and the ability gap between a boxed game army and a codex army was significant.

Considering the condensed army rules we've seen, I doubt that'll be the case.

Didnt some of the rules say the 8th ed books would be usable with 9th?

Just so long as one of these reborn races is the future Skaven, I am fine with it. The Skaven will never die, not even the apocalypse and the end of the world will destroy the Children of the Horned Rat!

I would assume anything that got models in the End Times to be staying around for 9th.

My feeling about the Archaon spoilers can be summarized in the following dialogue.

Me: "Oh boy I can't wait to see how the titanic ends"
Random person: "Everyone dies, durr"
Me: "I is now sad "


Medusa: "I'm a witch, its my job to blaspheme against Gods."

Two Slaanesh daemons on the first go...hmm I guess the fates have spoken emperors children here I come

This is what I think;

Considering that the leaks have been right so far, lets assume they are all right. That means one race will be a "powered armoured army of light". Likely that means the remnants of the Empire, possibly with the Dwarfs joining them to create a coalition, along with the other survivors of the human factions.

The merging of the Elves makes me think that the High Elves, Dark Elves and Wood Elves are dead, but something new will emerge from that. An Elven race that bears the hallmarks of all three Elven societies, merging the older values of each culture and adding new ones as they find their way to forming a tight-knit society.

The Skaven will survive. I refuse to acknowledge any kind of alternative.

Chaos will still be around, it wouldn't be Warhammer without it. The Daemons will remain unchanged, but the Warriors and Beastmen may find themselves quite changed, or perhaps even changed entirely as Chaos finds new followers to work the will of the Dark Gods in whatever comes next for Warhammer Fantasy.

The Undead may find themselves continuing in some form or another. The Vampire Counts, Tomb Kings and General Undead (Nagash) could form some kind of new necromantic faction that will try to continue the Great Work that Nagash began.

Explains why archaon never gets a new model. Not really sure how to absorb all that stuff on that little page. And I see no point in trying to figure out how both will work until it happens because how DO you remake all that which is to be undone?
Very excited for what the new world will be like and to see what's happened to all the well known and much loved characters!

Well it's a bit early to say, but I am pretty sure they all died. Except Grey Seer Thanquol, even the world ending couldn't kill him.
