To each their own I guess. I for one love the new Keeper of Secrets and the Masque will look great with a better painted face too. The Daemon Prince + Herald is an interesting take though while huge he doesn't look much like a Daemon Prince unfortunately. No clue what the portal thingy with the two Daemonettes is supposed to be. Probably yet another HQ that makes summoning easier lol

 

Also we can see the new terrain in the video as well

Well that is that I guess. I have a physical need for these models.

They are creepy yet eerily beautiful at the same time.

And they absolutely nailed that Keeper. Blew it out of the water. It is elegant and perfectly androgynous.

The 40k fluff explained to an outsider:

Some space elves got really into drugs and sex and a big scary monster got born that ate them.
A space wizard got beaten up by a guy who said he was his friend but wasn't and now he's on a life support machine and people worship him because he was super awesome.
Now there are giant men with rocket launcher machine guns and 4 hearts and are really super awesome who beat up everything.
Also there's a bunch of aliens but they don't really do anything and aren't as cool as the rocket machine gun super men, so who cares?

Anyone else besides me get a Darkness vibe on the new face?

Let's be honest, Curry was almost doing a toned down Dr. Frank-N-Furter as Darkness and it felt a tad Slaaneshi. 

 

I agree with the folks talking about the allure aspect over the monstrous, because there's always time later for flesh to split open and reveal fanged maws and such and nothing yet has topped the Diazmonettes for the perfect amount of hot and shock.

Wow, that's dumb. Absolutely nothing about that model says "Daemon Prince". I see giant or half giant maybe.

Actually, it looks like a Forerunner from Prometheus with a Daemonette hitching a ride on it's back. Lame.

This is by far my favourite interpretation of the Slannesh brief ever. They've absolutely nailed the fine line between weird and alluring without being conventionally attractive like the excellent Diaz Daemonettes, or having to hand-wave away the obvious hideousness of the model with 'Yeah, that's the soporific musk, innit'. I think there could be a little more fine detail, but the casual strut does a great job of conveying how leisurely and weirdly non-threatening this thing is.

I personally love Syll’Esske, quite possibly my favourite model of the lot.

Daemon princes can be so unique in form, I love having one be a statuesque, unnerving, and very humanoid looking figure, appearing to mortals as a truly beautiful being.

I can understand the complaints that it isn't visceral and horrifying enough, but I'm not sure when exactly Slaanesh models ever were. The old Seekers/Daemonettes and the champion on a beast of Slaanesh don't seem to me to be any more toothy or vicious than these new models.  Old!Slaanesh wasn't horrifying and visceral so much as...busty.

 

To be quite honest, in my opinion by far the creepiest Slaanesh model they've ever done is the Herald playing a harp made out of a dude's limbs in the Wrath & Rapture kit...and that is very new, and firmly in the 8th ed/AoS/nuGW era of "dumb garbage".

I'm digging this aesthetic, the models almost have a joi de vivre to them. I think they'll look just fine next to the Diaz Daemonettes I've got sitting around.

I really like them though. They're surprisingly not overdesigned to hell, being exotic without getting crammed full of too much useless detail.

Some interesting concerns about this release. I like the sound of my own voice, so I'll mouth off my thoughts on the arguments. For what it's worth, I'm in a position of liking these models. The KoS is weird, and almost looks non-GW, more like Kingdom Death. The unsettling, out of place look, to me, reinforces that GW did a good job. 

 

On to the discussion:

 

Too symmetrical

Symmetry in a face generally equates to beauty, however perfect symmetry in a face has a disturbing quality and becomes less attractive.

 

If the complaint is that you don't like it because it's too symmetrical, then I say they'd nailed it. 

 

Not enoguh bewbs

Androgyny. Not distinctly male or female.

 

If the complaint is that you don't find it attractive/alluring enough, and it should have more bewbs, is that from your personal position of finding bewbs attractive? Not everyone does. Have you considered that the model might be designed to be 'attractive' to more than the 'straight male' archtype?

 

Not enough fang-rimmed orifices

The requirement for it to be both beautiful, seductive, and be replete with many toothed holes not on the front of the head leaves me with questions, but no judgement, as to what one finds attractive. I would argue that you cannot be beautiful and have a mouth on your stomach, but chaos, hey. 

 

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Colour me excited!

I’ll definitely get a KoS. I’ve wanted to do one...stood atop a wrecked wave serpent, a dead Banshee impaled upon a claw, others disembowelled on the ground....for ages.

I’m sure those of us who prefer our Slaanesh a bit more twisted can convert it.

I might give mine a Se7en-style crotch blade...

i'm not the biggest fan of the Slaanesh aesthetic but i cant deny the beauty in these models. The sculpts are sublime. So graceful. 
My particular favourite is the strange mortal male that i assum is maybe a standard bearer?

That is a daemon prince, Syll’Esske. He's a very big boy! Compare to the Herald above him for scale.

I honestly don't mind the idea of a very human looking Daemon Prince, but imo a Daemon Prince should be recognizable on the board as at least being a Daemon without needing some explanation and this guy doesn't give off that vibe. Probably the reason why the design team added the herald to it which then resulted in a completely new unit instead of just a regular Daemon Prince lol

 

 

EDIT: is it a bad thing that I am oddly mesmerized by the Keeper of Secrets model and keep coming back just to stare at it? :D

IDK I think they nailed what I always thought Slaaneshi should be, which is "twisted/perverted elegance". If you put these clothes on a human you could say they were nobles. However because it's slaaneshi it is corrupted and makes me slightly uneasy.

The girl standing on they guy is a perfect example, I swear it could have been a cirque du soleil actor. However the scar-tattoo, the reversed limbs, clubbed feet-things, claw, and the feeling something is off. This to me is slaanesh, however for the older crowd I can understand because I was always told slaanesh was sex, drugs, and rock n' roll. However times have changed and I feel as though of the chaos God's, slaanesh is the one that would change the most to fit the current culture, and then twist it to his/her liking.

I think it will standout just fine at 2.5-3 marines tall and then a Herald on top, you're not gonna miss it.

 

The Keeper is incredible, and as the other 3 Greater Daemons have had a few distinct builds available and a Named GD of their type you can be pretty sure there's more to see.
