If we get La Kaya, I'm almost sure she'd be our cavalry caster (riding Laris). That's seems to be the way double epics are trending. Frankly, I'd prefer another Kaya... but I'm not expecting it considering Kreuger's significance in the story.
Krueger3 would be interesting to see what they would give him that his first two forms dont already do.
"Oracle of the Apocalypse" sounds awesome. If he were to get that, and they made him go off on a tangent, doing away with lightning and introducing new elements, like fire or darkness, that would be great! This could cement this title further with events unfolding around this anthanc and his relation with Blighterghast.
so he would go from the Stormwrath to the Stormlord to the Oracle of the Apocalypse. That would truly be a double epic worthy name. Legen-dairy!
On a side note, I am hoping for a fire type warlock or even an ice one.
For my blog go HERE
all these ideas sound great!
just my two cents in:
Baldur: if he was to go "legendary" i think it would be cool if he found a way to put his soul in a somewhat human sized construct it would make for a cool model amd the abilities and spells would be cool.
kaya : if kaya does become legendary why stick with going the same as or just like the others and go calv..even though i think it would be cool...but why not shake it up a it have kaya and laris fuse...or laris dies sending kaya into a wild frenzy unleashing this beastly soul she has showing how she could attach to beast like no other...i personally would want circle ranged based caster for calv.
krueger: is the most likely he has the most in the story but who knows i personally am not looking forward to that one unless done really cool...the theme with him is storms right? ( you dont say!! ) i know i know so what about going with the whole apocalypse theme and go pure spell caster...i mean lava earthquakes...lightning hurricanes floods u name it just a crazy **** storm.
thats it for the casters and also to add on to the wgole 3 man unit character unit topic in here i would love to see ither druids or tharns ravagers something simular to khadors great bears
Could we see Krueger the Omnipotent, be a big promotion. He has a plenipotentiary vote.
if that were to happen then delakov would have to be the one to go..how would that pan out?
I think Morv is going to become an Omnipotent upon Epic-ing. I don't think Krueger is trusted enough to get the promotion.
Krueger3 riding a lightning storm as a light cav could be fun I guess?
I could see morvahna going omnipotent also. What is the name of the water druid?
Lortus? He'd be a fun caster...
i was thinking about kaya going double epic, she loses Laris, goes insane and never wants to deal with possibly caring about a living warbeast again so she only deals with constructs, mainly woldwrath. She could have an ability like eButcher does where you roll for your fury limit each time, but i have no idea how that could work. No idea about feat or spells either
Probably going to be Krueger
I'm a lot more interested in seeing Kaya with another Epic, but I still have to fall into the "it's probably going to be Kreuger" camp.
Legendary(3) Kaya: As part of the healing process, Laris becomes part of her again. She gains the ability to go incorporal. Her feat gives Forced Eveolution to all Living Warbeasts under her control.
Legendary(3) Kruger: Is nuts enough to sink a shard of Althanc into his heart, and still manages to control it. Has a permanent lightning cloud around him, giving Concealment, and a Str 10 hit Elecro hit as soon as you come within 3" of him. Feat is Lightning Storm for his whole control area.
im still waiting for our charactor unit to be a group of shifting stones.
Heh, I can see the jokes now from the naysayers...
"Eh, he's just a blowhard."
"He's full of hot air."
"After a certain point, he just kind of... drizzles out."
I could have sworn that it was already announced that Kaya was going epic again. Maybe I'm confusing it with Lylyth already being announced. I agree from the story perspective it would be Krueger, who is my favorite to play, but I'm thinking in my gut it's going to be Kaya. If they want to go mounted they could either way, and I wouldn't say she had a 'small' part in this story, I would almost say that this was an awakening for her. Realizing the reality of her relationship w/ Morvahna, and having Baldur come back, even the brewing relationship w/ Grayle. I think there is as much there to build on for her new epic as there is for Krueger.
If she does go epic, I agree w/ the poster that talked about Forced Evo for the battle group as a feat. But I think you might see her have Respawn, not unlike Saeryn, or perhaps that spell exactly. I think she'll definitely be mounted, and on Laris would be very sweet. The real question is what is the version of Spirit Shift/Spirit Door gonna be? Perhaps a spell that allows her to do that with any beast (I could only wish). I think she'll have Stealth base now, and possibly Mirage as a spell.
I think it will be an eventful fall...
It would be interesting if Kaya did go legendary and became a Cavalry caster... especially because she'd almost certainly be the fastest caster in the game if she got full wolf mount speed. Still though, I don't know what they'd give her... there's so much that would be awesome, but Circle 'is not allowed to have'. Who knows what her feat would do. I'd definitely like to see her keep her status as a living beast caster. Having her on a large base with either natural Prowl or outright Stealth would mitigate certain ranged matchups. Movement buff spell(s) to allow her warbeasts to keep up with her. Some form of her trademark Spirit Door/Spirit Shift... heck, have a spell where she swaps two warbeast models and they can still activate (or at least, still attack).
While I'd like to see LKrueger, I'd be very curious where they would go with a LKaya.
I'm going to go with lKrueger as well, it makes sense given all the fluff.
As for who goes epic, Mohsar ad Morvanna are generally said to be at the top of thier power already, Cassius and Wurmwood won't change until the tree needs a new intemediary, and Kromac is already huge.
I think they will epic Grayle.
Unit - I would love to see some Wolves of Orboros Heavy Cavalry, on wolves, with rules for them to back up Morraig.

I guess it will be Krueger, but I'm so hoping on Kaya. She's my favorite warlock by far. I really hope she gets some Warpwolf Elixer. Somehow a Warpwolf Warlock has always appealed to me.
If we get that woldwrath, it's probably going to be krueger. (right?) because he deals with constructs more than kaya
Real heroes only need five minutes.
I would like to see Morvhana go Epic more than anything. I just love her to death. However, with regards to our Level 3 Epic, I am pretty sure it is going to be Krueger for all the reasons discussed. The story around Krueger is such that it just begs to see him evolve again. In addition, I felt that insider write up that Seacat did was something of a foreshadowing moment of things to come...
Protectorate Deserter. don't tell the Visgoths!
I've always loved the idea of Kromac the warpwolf (he's what I was hoping for before the Woldbaldur some people predicted for Domination). However, Warpwolf lKaya would be very cool. More of a ghostly Pureblood-Warlock type rather than the balls-to-the-wall savagery WW Kromac would be.
If she doesn't get that though, +1 to votes for Cav Kaya. Riding an Argus, but with Laris leading a wolf pack as a character bodyguard unit. And warpwolf cav with a feral riding a satyr. No?
For our Legendary warlock I'm thinking it's going to be Krueger. He is just making to many moves that he has to undergo some type of change. I wouldn't mind Kaya going Legendary but hope it's not a mounted version. At first I thought it would be cool to see her mounted on Laris but when they announced Vlad, Kreoss, and Vyros getting mounts I feel it's getting to overdone in such a short span. As for another epic I would like to see Morvahna go. I'd like to see her as a warlock that helps troops stay alive and deliver more damage. Something like Fury and Iron Flesh. Remember that going epic is not a promotion but references a characters growth. Promotion of rank is just a commonly used reason so although Mohsar is the highest rank for a Druid that does not exclude him from going epic.
Kaya mounted on a Warbeast would be ridiculous. I see her more as going totally feral, or if she must ride something, just a common wolf like the Wolf Riders. Her riding Laris would be silly in the extremes, but could be just my taste.
And yes, epic Morvanha would be epic. Last Stand please.
I don't see Morvahna or anyone in our faction getting Iron Flesh, they're not going to give us a DEF 17 ARM 19 Ghetorix. Last Stand might be cool, but not sure I see that one at the moment. I'd love to see Ritual Sacrifice for her though, I could see that being thematically relevant for sure. Parasite or Crippling Grasp would be good for us to be able to potentially deal some damage with infantry running her.
I had been leaning pretty heavily towards Kaya3 happening based on how Domination went down, but now that I'm thinking about the Woldwrath coming out and seemingly a decent amount of suggestion that it'll have lightning attacks, its leading me to think that it'll more likely be Krueger too.
If I look out there it seems like every Warmachine faction has 4 epics right now (except of course Retribution and Mercs), so it would sort of be nice if we had our 4 epics before getting to the 3rd incarnations. Maybe they could give us like Mohsar2, Morvahna2 or Kromac2 and then Krueger3 in the same book. I'm doubtful, but it'd be cool.
For normal Epics PP has been going in the order of release. That would mean that either Morvana or Kromac is next. (I'm not sure which came first.)
As for uor double Epic, I'm betting it'll be Krueger.
I know its not going to happen but I kinda want Mohsar to just skip epic and go legendary. I feel like he was really underwhelming in his Mohsar1 form for a caster of his rank in a faction of casters.
When is the next Hordes book roughly slated for release? I am voting for a lkrueger.
+1 for a warpwolf warlock. That would be the most awesome of awesomesauce. Kaya, Kromac, whoever. Make this happen Privateer Press.
