Mwap mwap. Another army gets squatted.

I'm sorry, Tomb Kings players, because your army was actually quite cool, but unfortunately there's just no room for that aesthetic in World of Sigmarcraft.

There is actually, the Tomb Kings would be great as some kind of Death Aristocracy in the Death Grand Alliance. But GW are stupid and hence...

Their pauldrons aren't immense enough, their art is really nice, and they were already scraping the bottom of the barrel with 'Deathrattle Legions'; there just weren't any more silly names to give the mummies.

In truth, their whole racial motivation in WFB could basically be summed up as 'get off my lawn', and when your lawn gets retconned...

Indeed. And it's a shame because some of the Death faction names are good; like the Nighthaunts or Soulblights. If used with good context and not gratuitously, those names could be really good. But Deathrattles and Deathwalkers are just painfully bad.

Does that for sure mean that they're removing them? Wouldn't it be possible to just be redesigning them?

EDIT: Never mind. I see that I got an email saying they were gone. Whoops.

This isn't exactly a shocker. The new Undead models lean more toward the VC end of the spectrum, if not, totally in between. There isn't really room for the Egypt motif if they're headed in that direction.

This is certainly very interesting, not sure why they might reduce their product line like this, but i suppose expensive casts taking up shelve space concerns them more if they aren't being used.

Personally its sad to see models go, but in the end i don't play fantasy and don't have any commitment to these models.

This is all based on the assumption that there won't be anything to replace certain Tomb King-esque elements in the Death armies.

Truth is though you can't Copyright an army that's clearly got one foot in real world history. Expect Bretonnia to go next.
