    Cover text:
    "The Hammer of Sigmar
    Wielding Ghal Maraz itself, the Celestant-Prime strikes like a comet!"

    Celestant Prime
    "With Angelic Wings he wields Ghal Maraz and floats above the large round base on a spiral of astral air. His wings are in a starburst pattern. Very nice and highly detailed model. from the other pictures it seems that his height matches that of the new Bloodthirster. The Celestant-Prime isn't Sigmar, He's the first Stormcast Eternal created and he's a special character (rules say you can only include 1)."

    "YESSS!!!! The rules. The model is as big as Nagash, and standing on a celestrial fulgrim that looks more like the top of a Numinous Occulum. He is wielding the Ghal Maraz in his right hand, with wings fashioned after the prosecutor models, but bigger. One picture shows him towering over the Glottkin model."

    Cool and unexpected, maybe they will switch between the two forces for a while until they both get full ranges...

    death from the skies sounnds like a full kit for Prosecutors, so i guess this named character is like a herald to lead them.

    I'm intrigued.

    Been sort-of tempted to get some Eternals....perhaps this will see me commit?

    Eh... not really that interested (I just find the Stormcast aesthetic to be boring, too over-the-top IMO, though that *is* just my opinion), and even less so since the guy is supposedly using Ghal Maraz and not Sigmar. If Sigmar had to work so hard to get back the hammer he, a god, lost to trickery when he was afraid to face Archaon toe-to-toe, why would he hand it off to someone who is a good bit less powerful than he is? Why would he ever let it out of his sight again?

    The teasers sound like they're finally getting the winged guys into a box of their own.

    Another Battle Tome, though... I'm sorry, but at this point, it's getting silly. Within two months of release they'll have a pair of $74 books, a $33 book, and likely another book at $33 (or more)? I know they aren't "needed" (unless you want to have interesting scenarios and all), but geez, that's rushing them out faster than End Times, and that series already pushed wallets hard. I think they might find a lot of copies stuck on the shelf because people can't afford them right now, and then later when people can the hype will be gone and the opportunity to make sales lost. Also, they either have a LOT of books in the pipeline (which seems kind of odd... I know there's probably two more Realmgate Wars books left, but having a ton of books for AoS seems contrary to how it was being marketed), or they're shooting out too much of their load early, which could leave AoS getting a bad lull period. Would have been better to space stuff out.

    Have to wonder what another tome would even be for, though?

    Very crazy and over the top, I love it. I especially like how his cloak turns into that weird swirly thing - very appealing to me.
