    I'm excited about the Forge Seer. I just love the sculpt! Does someone have the blurb on him?

    The Strakhov blurb is exciting. I'll get on the hype train (while simultaneously subduing my disappointment that next caster isn't (a) a colossal Karchev, (b) Sorscha 3, or (c) a widowmakers warcaster. That said, they say he's good with Pikemen, Shocktroopers, and IFP. What do they all have in common? Shield Wall! I'm envisioning something like: Desparate Pace [Shield Wall] to give units executing a shield wall order +2" movement. Or... as long as I'm dreaming... maybe Battle Plans with 3 tactics to grant to shield walled units... run in Shield Wall... reposition 3" to a shield walled unit...

    I like the sclupts for the warcaster unit grunts -- those guns look totally boss, and man do I hope they do more than normal AK guns. D3 shots for sure. The digital sculpt for Strakhov himself looks okay, but similar to the Malakov 2 model it's too static. I would have liked a more dramatic pose.

    And, let's celebrate that Malakov 2 is coming out in April. That's awesome!

    Is it wrong that I want to paint Strak as Rick with his two Morty henchmen?

    That would be awesome, and I'm totally expecting he won't be getting that... Still I think the magic weapon part is more interesting than empower, that would make this guy behemoth's best friend, for a really expansive package. Here's to hoping we can get forge seers for free in one of our theme force.

    I'm the only one here disappointed of this news releases ?
    The forge seer is amazing, ok but Strakhov look like a unit leader or a CA.
    No character jack for Kosly and where is our colossal ?
    We get the worst command book wave right imho.

    How can you say that? The sculpt on Strakhov is a bit meh, but the Forgeseer looks awesome and we haven't seen the cards. We also don't know what else is in the book yet for future release.

    Also, I am delighted... just simply delighted... that we are getting new models at the same time that the book drops. My expectation has been to wait a year, so to get Christmas in April is great.

    Wait you were expecting a character warjack AND a colossal? Temper your expectation dude, otherwise you'll be disapointed for sure.

    As for our caster I'm excited altough the description doesn't give a solid spoiler. If Strak2 ends up being as bad as Madrak3 then maybe we'll have the short end of the stick but if he's at least useable I'm pretty ok with what we get.

    I was expecting sorscha3 on a horse but I'm not disapointed by what we're getting, it's just different.

    Yeah I edited for full on Wraithbane. Dream big!

    For Behemoth, I usually park her near the Armory at least to start, that gets me magic if I need it.

    I believe the Forge Seer was already confirmed to be our empower bot long before this post.

    PP is no longer doing mirrored releases. Kozlov may never get a character jack. I doubt it, but it's a possibility.

    OR a colossal (gangantua) like the trollblood.

    A forgeseer cannot be compared with an eye of truth or a character in general. And that Strhakov sculpt is so "poor".

    Is it always that those listed model blurbs are the sole new releases for a book? Or could they just be 2 out of 3 new models? I really don't remember how it worked in past books. Though I would have expected a character jack art to be dropped by now if we were getting one in this book.

    Well both faction with new command books got 2 releases each, PP doesn't do mirror release anymore but I think they will keep the same number of entries in each books, so yeah the command book would be Strak2 Forge seer and two theme forces, one of which we will already know by then.

    Empower has been pretty much a Known factor since LnL 2016, and the sales blurb says he will have Empower, and that he'll be FA:2.

    So Destroyers just got more Destroyer-y

    It was never likely we'd get another colossal when we already had two. Trolls got their third one, but they also have fewer heavy chassis options in comparison.

    Also remember at some point we're getting a MOW Battle Engine.

    Honestly the Forge seer sounds like a model that will be a pain in the ***.

    I want empower on cheap spamable things. MOW casing ensures that its gonna be 5 points minimum, and I would MUCH rather prefer something be 4-3 points, even if the survivability is lower.

    In all honesty im not excited for Magci Weapon/ Empower/ Magic ice spray.

    Just too....Predictable and not very exciting to be honest.

    And too many warcaster units are just gosh darn redundant.

    Was really hoping for a character clamjack. Kinda bummed. Everyone else got a cool new character jack (although the Cygnar one has a jazz hand). We got a dude with empower. Which everyone else already had.

    Santa-O-War looks like a pain to paint.

    Yeah - I am not excited about being able to give out extra focus to jacks under Hark.....said no hark player EVER

    As a Hark Player...Not really. Its kinda nice, and would play alright against menoth, but thats 1 shot at the most.

    Love the models. I understand people not liking Strakhov's model, but to me even his first incarnation had this kind of subdued look (which I liked and found in line with the fluff) compared to the rest of our casters, so this one looks just as good to me.

    I'll buy at least one Forge Seer for the model, but whether I get a second will depend on the rules. From the blurb and past spoilers, we could assume a Grant Magic Weapons spell, Empower and the usual Grey Lord ice spray, probably at Magic Ability 7 (even though he does look like a Koldun "Lord"). Also, probably SPD4, DEF10, ARM16 and 8 wounds. Assuming these are his only abilities, I could see him finding a place in some lists for 4 points, but not sure I'd pay 5 points for him. If he would grant Sacred Ward to MoWs in some form, I'd consider him worth 5 points in some lists.

    The AK models are pretty awesome with their "modernized" PPSh-41's! The thing that has me excited is maybe there is going to either an AK resculpt or a new AK unit with submachine guns . .

    Strakhov went full Big Boss.
    I don't really get him being unit with 2 noname dudes, doesn't make much sense. Could've made them an attach instead to kommando unit or something.

    Santa mow is really cool.

    Really happy about everything here.

    I like the possibility of Empower, not sure where to use it.

    Strakov is my favourite Caster, so I am pumped. I don't dislike the look, and I think its fitting to have some sord of "Bodyguards". I am sure those won't be his normal AK's. They will be the elite of the elite!
    Although this makes me think that there will never be an AK attachment, because basically Strakov is their attachment.

    The new Theme Force revolving somewhat around him or his theme makes me happy too. I love MoW-Shocks and AKs.

    Getting the new Malakov is pretty sweet too.

    I had a really good morning with these news!

    Dear Privateer Press Customer Services,

    Please can I put in an advance order for Strakhov plus Kommando Specialists.

    Please let me know where to send my money and when I can expect the order to arrive.


    Kindest regards

    Heck WE already had it. They took it away from the Koldun Lord just so we could get a more expensive version of the same thing.

    Yeah, even though the forge seer looks super cool, I feelings like we got cheated on that one.

    well his early fluff has a lot of notes regarding his work turning the cream of the Khador forces into assault kommandos, and that he spent a lot of time with his troops training. There's a point in the fluff that Irusk sets him the task of creating the kommandos, and ends up shocked at the methods and effectiveness of the work Strakhov puts into the project.

    The rescue of Karchev from the Cryx is just an extension of this - behind enemy lines without a rescue line in place is exactly where Strakhov wants to be, and exactly the way you want to play him. The new incarnation (with added troops) must be like a holiday for him after working alone in the Cryx hive.

    The Karchev rescue is described on MK2 expansion books. They should be heavily on sale nowaday. I don't remember the training one.
