Q: Is the book exploring the history of different hosts?
A: There are some small fluff blurbs for the different colour schemes (see the picture above). Besides that, you get a little bit of lore with the host specific battalions (Hammers of Sigmar, Hallowed Knights, Celestial Vindicators, Anvils of the Heldenhammer, Knights Excelsior, Celestial Harbingers, Tempest Lords and Astral Templars).

Q: Does the book give any hints of what stormhost tactics would fit best for those stormhosts that didn't get rules for? I play Blades of Dawn, but I don't know which battalion works best for them.
A: Sadly no specific stuff (atleast I haven't found them). But it's stated that they are quite flexible but stormhosts may be influenced by an influx of new members. Also, there are a few new hosts, but some of the old ones (like Lions of Sigmar) didn't even got a colour scheme reference.

Q: How many / which maps are inside the book?
A: There are two pages with maps from Aqshy and Ghyran, showing sites and stronghold across these Mortal Realms. There is also Hammerhal, a city that dwells both in Aqshy and in Ghyran at the same time.

Q: What does the vexillor do now since it had a huge point drop?
A: Pennant of the Stormbringer got nerfed. Rest is unchanged as far as I can tell.

Q: Has the book rules for the Errant-Questor?
A: Nope, but you get the full rules aswell as point costs with the model anyways.

Q: What does lightning strike do now?
A: It gives the battalion the scions of the storm ability, and if you have a stormcast eternals only army you can modify the rolls.

Q: Does this book replace the Stormcast section in the GHB or are you still allowed to bring those battalions in matched play?
A: It say's the rules and points are used "alongside the rules in the General's Handbook". So I guess everything from that should still be valid ('till the release of GHB 2nd edition).

Plus here is the live feed for the Twitch Event going on now for the new book
