Default Incoming: Tomb Kings (Now with Pictures .)

Up on GW website.

Quote:
An ancient race that has lain dormant for thousands of years, the Tomb Kings now awaken from within their ancient burial pyramids. Cheated from the eternal life that they were promised, the Tomb Kings are instead doomed to an eternal undeath - awakened they thirst for vengeance against those who would disturb their slumber.

At the command of these undying lords march legions of implacable Skeleton Warriors, hosts of chariots crewed by long-dead crewmen and towering statues carved from unyielding stone.

The armies of the Tomb Kings are vast, unstoppable hordes that know neither fear nor remorse - and they shall not rest until all who stand against them are laid low.

This May Warhammer: Tomb Kings is released, containing everything you need to use the legions of Nehekhara in your games of Warhammer.

Alongside the new book we'll also be releases a slew of amazing new miniatures for Tomb Kings players to collect and add to their armies. Details are being kept firmly under wraps for now, but more details will be available over the coming months. To make sure you're the first to see the new models and read the latest news keep your eyes fixed to the pages of White Dwarf, the Games Workshop newsletter and the What's New Today blog.

In the meantime, if you're a Tomb Kings player (or thinking about becoming one) it's time to start building up your Undead hordes in preparation for the new arrivals. So, out with the large drybrush (and the pot of Bleached Bone) and onwards to glory!

Presented below are two exclusive sneak peeks at the upcoming releases. Please keep checking back on the website, and in White Dwarf for more information in the near future.

Overall I guess they are okay. The skeletons riding the giant snakes look a little odd.

Oh fuck yes-- it's about time. I've always dug the Egyptian look for the undead, and it's bugged me that Tomb Kings haven't been a particularly playable army for years.

Simultaneously, oh fuck no. I bet they'll have a $40 army book and charge you $35 for 10 skeletons. My poor checking account...

This is good, I do love my Vampire Counts army and I like getting value for money out of my troops heh. Hopefully Mantic will produce some undead Bowmen to go with their Not-Screaming Skull Catapults.

Talking to a Satff member, the rumour and talk is that this release is going to be a 'strange one'. Exactly what that means is not clear to anyone, yet, although the rumours I have heard (and both of these, I believe, originate on Warseer and both discussed with said Staff member who is as unsure as anyone on which is true) are:
1. There are going to be re-done versions of old kits, which might include such things as plastic Ushabti and Bone Giant.
2. None of the units in the book at the moment are being re-done, the new kits (plastics I would assume) are all being devoted to the new units in the new Army Book.
Either way, the word is that what's being released is very, very special. Whatever transpires, if the trend in new plastic kits continues, I am perfectly ready to believe in the specialness of whatever is released.
Please don't ask me anything else as I don't know anything except what I've posted. If anything is let slip, then I'll post it if I think it won't get anyone into trouble.

That's because you're a soulless husk of a human being, ironically perfect for a Tomb Kings Army. Strange but true.

You should be looking at the conversion opportunities Tomb Kings will give. Necrons are essentially Tomb Kings IN SPAAAAAAAAACCCEEEEEE. Lot of plastic Tomb King kits will really help make some pretty ace looking Necron Armies.
