Games Workshop didn't stop with the reveals from GAMA as they also dropped a bunch of new goodies into the mix for fans of the Mortal Realms. The Fantasy world of Warhammer: Age Of Sigmar is going to be graced with new releases starting with the Daughters Of Khaine in Warhammer Underworlds.

These deadly killers have been added into the mix finally for Warhammer Underworlds as part of Morgwaeth's Blade-Coven. I really like this warband once again, a response which I think carries through across all of the warbands for use in Warhammer Underworlds. They are a wonderful snapshot of the factions from Age Of Sigmar and they give you a chance to paint a whole bunch of different and very characterful models.

I really like Morgwaeth herself in the middle and the leaping Khainite in the bottom left who is about to ruin someone's day. I also quite like the Witch Aelf in the bottom right who has taken up a fighting stance which reminds me of old Warhammer Quest models! If you've wanted to try Daughters Of Khaine but not wanted to dive into a full army, this might be a nice entry point for you.

Warriors Of Light

Sticking with the theme of Aelves but from a very different realm, we also have a peek at more of the Lumineth Realm-lords. This time around we got introduced to their ranged options in the Auralan Sentinels.

In classic High Elf/Aelf style, these warriors fight along the mighty phalanxes of Auralan Wardens. Much of the DNA of the classic High Elf Archer has been carried over into their design for Age Of Sigmar but of course, you've got an added sense of grandeur befitting the forces of the Mortal Realms.

They are rather similar looking throughout the unit as a whole, only really differentiated by their various heads. However, as they are all meant to be martially adept Aelves I can sort of forgive this, all of them readying to loose their arrows at the same time.

The Lumineth Realm-lords are pretty darn zen when it comes to their place within the Mortal Realms and with Teclis at the helm, they are obviously going to be masters of magic. It was neat to see a peek at one of their spellcasters then in the form of the Alarith Stonemage.

These mages have mastered the elements and are able to use the world around them to cause great harm to the enemy. I really like the idea of balance and being at one with the powerful winds of magic here. One of the fascinating things about these new Aelves is that we're seeing Games Workshop look to other cultures and corners of the world for inspiration and I'm getting a serious Far Eastern vibe here crossed with a hint of the Middle-East throughout the rest of the army too. It's a nice mix and really helps to make the army look unique.

Also, a fun little bit of trivia. You'll notice that each of the new Aelves in this range have cloaks, banners and the like which are all blowing in the wind. Well, if you look closely, they are all blowing the same way. This has been done deliberately to give the impression of them all moving and existing as one!

What do you make of these new miniatures for the Mortal Realms?
