The flames await the phoenix, but the dragon stands against him.

Gods Perish

Nice title for the trailer, but what’s really happening?

What we already know from End Times Nagash:
Malekith gave the return order for his armies to defend his lands against the invading forces of Chaos led by Valkia. He sends Malus Darkblade and the forces available to aid Morathi in the defence of Ghrond.
Finubar is dying or already dead, that’s not 100% sure, at least not yet. Tyrion took over command to lead the armies of Ulthuan against the invading demonhordes.
Imrik is the only one who defies Tyrion and does not help him in the war against the demons and retreats back into his own realm to defend it on his own..
Teclis and Malekith have some kind of secret agreement. In one part of the End Times book Teclis is talking with Malekith about the sacrifice of Aliathra. Malekith is not mentioned by name, but he calls Teclis his nephew, what makes it pretty clear that it’s Malekith.
Araloth and his army were lead through a portal to a distant shore, wherever that is: Naggaroth, Ulthuan, Lustria, Realm of Chaos.


The new trailer:
Now it says Malekith is going to attack Ulthuan again after the demons have been defeated. Does that mean the invading forces lead by Valkia are already defeated? Was that the best Khorne can do? Or will Malekith split up his forces? Or will he abandon Naggaroth, leaving Malus and Morathi behind to fend for themselves and he attacks Ulthuan with everything he got in a last final assault?
But after all the rumours about a combined elven army list, the trailer indicates differently. Or they combine there armies and five minutes after the last demon was slain, they start killing each other again.
But what about the Avatar of Khaine at the end of the trailer? Will one of the named characters sacrifice himself to become the Avatar and save the World?

And now for the hidden message on the GW Homepage:
The flames await the phoenix, but the dragon stands against him.

Tyrion seems to be the Phoenix who probably will enter the shrine of asuryan and enter the flames to become the next Phoenixking, after Finubars death of course. And Imrik is of course the dragon. And he most defiantly don’t like the idea of Tyrion becoming the next Phoenixking.

And everyone wants new models, me too of course as a fanatic Druchii player. And if it’s the same as with the other End Times waves, then we will get one release with either two units or one unit and one character or maybe even two characters (Morathi and Malus, fingers crossed), one release with a combikit to build three different characters with mount (maybe Malekith, Imrik and Araloth on dragon (blackdragon, stardragon, forestdragon) and one giant monster release, like a big Avatar of Khaine.

But for now we must be patient and wait.

    2. Ive been thinking about diving into fantasy. Im pretty sold on high elves, but open to suggestions. What do you all play?

    3. High Elves are good. Get yourself a copy of Island of Blood and take it from there! Then prepare for annihilation by the Druchii... mwahaha!!

      Delete
    4. Yeah, High Elves get some tough units (for Elf standards), brutal magic and they're just very well rounded.

      Much as I hate to say it, I'd never recommend Wood Elves to someone just starting. They're hard to play and my first few games were a bit of slog.

    5. I play several armies though High Elves are not one of them. But playing against them them I will say they are well rounded and the Magic Phase is very important for them. Their core is not great but makes for good bunkers but their specials are where it's at. That and the Frost Bird of Frustration.

      A decent starting army that doesn't break the core rules and cheat like my Dark Elves. Just don't get hung up on the internet's idea of what you should run. I run an Infantry heavy DE list with no WE or CoB. And dispite the internet's insistance that my list sucks I still took first in my tournament outing with them.

    6. Thanks for the input guys! And if I listened to the internet I probably would have rage quit when the new Tyranid codex dropped (but I have been murdering everything in my path since then, mmm biomass).

    8. Dwarf/High Elf Player, with the odd venture into other armies [beastmen, skaven, chaos,empire, brets]

      Delete
    9. Skaven and Beastmen. I have to admit, Skaven were a refreshing break from my 40k Chaos army. Now I alternate between the two.

      Delete
    10. Bretts Wood Elves Chaos Warriors/Beastmen and a small High Elf force oh and Empire, Go High Elf or Empire for a beginner these armies are great and a challenge to paint but low point armies aren't to many figures, oh and the starter set is GREAT if you want to go High Elf ;)

  3. those model guesses seem pretty on the ball

  4. My interpretation of the hidden message on GW's site was that Malekith will try to retake the phoenix throne of Ulthuan; he already tried it once, and was rejected and burned beyond recognition...but he wants to be reborn and rule the elves as he views it as his birth right. Hence the "flames awaiting the phoenix", and Tyrion standing in his way as the Dragon, as he too is of the line of Aenarion, and probably wants to rule Ulthuan after Finubar.

    My bet is that Teclis gets Malekith to help defend against the chaos armies, but that Malekith then tries to stab the elves in the back and claim ulthuan. I'm assuming that some form of the Avatar of Khaine thwarts Malekith (teclis as avatar?).

    Question though - in the eldar fluff, a prince has to sacrifice himself to become the avatar...would the process be similar for the elves? I thought the eldar version had something to do with soul stones and the infinity circuit...which is obviously absent from warhammer fantasy fluff.

    1. I'm guessing the Wood Elves in this scenario could be a kind of "arrive at the last minute and join forces with Tyrion in a desperate last stand" kind of deal. Which would be cool.

    2. Khaine is more a Druchii thing now surely.. Malus as Avatar? Mind you Tyrion is really dull and needs killing off..

      Delete
    3. The whole sac a prince thing is already done to make orion every year. Itd be shane if they copy paste that fluff again for a fantasy avatar

      Delete
    4. Tyrion might very well be Aenarion reincarnated and with hints that Malekith might pledge his loyalty to him and the other Elven leaders this may make sense. Malekith would bow before his Father in an instant if he returned. Morathi is the wild card here since she only wants to use her son, or exhusband, for her own personal gain.

      There is a lot of background for Elves that makes this book Huge for Elven players.

    5. Also Malekith stood before the Sword of Khaine before and realized he would lose the battle of wills against Khaine if he drew it. Malekith will not draw the sword, he knows its curse better than others.

      Delete
  5. Deathblade:

    Darkblade must decide where his loyalties lie - will he follow Malekith to the death, or will he finally rise up and try to claim the throne of Naggaroth for himself? And either way, will he survive?

    It has taken decades, but Malus Darkblade has finally plotted, schemed and murdered his way to power, as the ruler of the city of Hag Graef and general of the Witch King Malekith's armies. But his position is imperilled when Malekith orders an all-out assault on Ulthuan - with Darkblade in the vanguard. As he wages war on the high elves, Darkblade must decide where his loyalties lie - will he follow Malekith to the death, or will he finally rise up and try to claim the throne of Naggaroth for himself? And either way, will he survive?

  6. Sorry to go all 40k for a moment but...

    Far from the war-torn Cryptus system, the shadow of the Leviathan falls on a world under the protection of the Ultramarines. As his warriors lead a desperate rearguard to allow the world’s citizens to evacuate, Chief Librarian Tigurius tackles a monstrous new presence – a beast whose psychic powers threaten to overwhelm even him. Can he survive his first encounter with this creature, or will he be lost to the might of the hive mind?

    Shield of Baal: Leviathan.

    6. You 40K guys. Don't worry, the end of the Galaxy is coming soon just give our world a chance to get ruined beyond recognition first.

      I'm sure GW is working on killing off your guys as we speak.

      (It's no problem, I just find it funny that in every WHFB thread there is at least one 40K player trying to change the topic to 40K. The other ET thread has a Nid player asking if there will be more Nids coming. :D)
