Could Darkoath and Moonclan be on the way next for Age of Sigmar 2nd Edition?
So the portents have been realised and the forces of Nagash are marching on the storm forged warriors of Sigmar – A new chamber of Stormcast Eternals is unleashed upon the spectral forces of the Nighthaunt!
Age of Sigmar 2nd Edition will be with us next month, but do you notice anything about these first two forces? Have we maybe missed signs to be interpreted in the coming of the harbingers?
This guy was a bit of a puzzle when he first came out, as was an unusual choice in a pure Stormcast Army due to his command ability allowing Order War Machine units to fire twice…
Enter the new Stormcast war machines glimpsed at Warhammer fest!
Suddenly he makes a lot more sense allowing these Lightning shooting weapons to fire twice!
The Knight of Shrouds
This guy too was an usual choice in the fact that Nighthaunt were missing from the Nagash battletome! However again he makes a lot more sense now with…
…the awesome new Nighthaunt range on the way! They are going from having a handful of units to an entire battletome – and it’s out in June too!!
So what does this mean for the next releases for Age of Sigmar – well I’m sure you have noticed that half of the characters in Malign Portents have got corresponding releases, I dont think it’s too much of a stretch to guess that the next two armies for Age of Sigmar will be the Darkoath (Or at the very least Slaves to Darkness – as we dont appear to have a Darkoath keyword yet) and Moonclan!
I’m sure Games Workshop will want each Grand Alliance to have something cool to launch the new edition, and both of these forces have kits that would look great with an update!
For the Darkoath I’d love to see newer barbarian marauders in the style of the Warqueen to represent the mortal tribes ravaging their way across the realms! The current kits are quite old now and an update to make them fit better into the universe would be brilliant!
For the Moonclan I think what everyone would want to see is new squigs! Plastic squigs that cover old and new options would be brilliant, especially if they run with the more fungal angle the new Shaman has! These have the potential to be uniquely “Age of Sigmar” Goblins unlike anything we have seen before!
So what do you guys think we will see next? Armies to follow the remaining two Harbingers, or something different entirely? Let us know below!
