For me or you it is ok. But so is slanesh level of nudity. Not to mention Dark elves from fantasy who also displays lot of skin (see witches) and do not have weird mutations so are more sexual in a sense.

I think GW themselves should have a very good discussion who is actually playing this game and if with this market model they can actually compete with consoles and such, i think they kind of lost sight of that.

Agreed they have lost it long long time ago. And thet do not see it. That is why AoS is such a terrible idea. It will antagonize many of their current clients and will not atract kids (for whom AoS i crealry made), becouse they have many other alternatives (other tabletop games, computer/cpnsol games, and so on).

As for their willignes to work with their client it is shown in their internet presence, wich is a joke in coparison to much smaller companies.

Maybe Slaanesh got the axe because of the new rule system they have? You know, the one where you got to act out something stupid like talking to the models and stuff. How would that work with Slaanesh? Like; 'pretend to spank your models to increase their charge range'?

The silly rules seem to be the focus of why people don't like AoS (besides points). They aren't prevalent at all, and GW decided to have a little fun. We got free rules, so I can deal with a little silliness. The game itself is actually fun.

That said, house rule is no silly rules :)

Silly "talk to imaginary horse" rules are not the problem. Everyone can ignore them. Problem is that all the other rules are stupid/have no sense or require players to make so mach changes to the system that it is another syetem. Oh and destroing very good fluff for something that a 5 year old coud come up with. These are main AoS problems. And of course Sigmarines.

souledgar wrote:So yea. In the entire Age of Sigmar fluff section there is only a grand total of one mention of Slaanesh, and thats about him being captured by a Lord Tyrion. Also, an illustration of the four powers of chaos has his signature Slaaneshi symbol removed, replaced by a new symbol (which reminds me of someone flipping me the bird with both hands...)

Looks like Matthew gets his wish at long last and GW has axed Slaanesh. From Warhammer Fantasy at least. Since the god of excess is a central part of the 40K lore I seriously doubt he will go away, but perhaps they will sideline him and push others to the fore (by releasing a Tzeentch and Nurgle Codex without an accompanying Slaaneshi one perhaps?)
Incorrect the reason for the missing icon is because slaanesh is missing not because they axed slaanesh from the fluff the god of excess will come back in the future possibly when they have done nurgle and tzeentch.

The way I see it the chaos gods will start to be fought back from the area's they are contesting because of the storm cast being a threat so they will send there minions in a search to bring slaanesh back not because they like slaanesh but rather tzeentch would see that they need another temporary alliance member.

In the meantime when the servants of slaanesh will see the horned rats icon replaced slaanesh icon they will turn on the skaven because they would believe them to have "stolen" the place of the one they worship basically increasing the need to find slaanesh because that's another enemy fighting on another front vs the skaven.

Just a fyi, the new Archaon model (while missing a slanneshi head) has a slanneshi symbol on his Rune shield.

But who knows... Maybe the slanneshi head is on the beasts niple and the breastplate is covering it up.
