Great preview. New underworlds, new warcry, some very solid orlocks, and more 40k than we were led to believe. Would have been good to see some new AT but there were things that I'll probably pick up and things that aren't for me but which I can be happy are about.

2. Deathmark gone destroyer, grand also means we've seen every necron model now unless there's hidden stuff
3. Orlocks, not bothered but cyber dogs are cool
4. Warcry and other AoS mini game - substantial for those invested. More importantly year of slaaneshi mortals coming which is significant.
5. AoS 3 announced for next summer. That book has end times/ PA written all over it.
6. Slaaneshi mortals coming in multiple systems, hoping it follows in 40k (I know I already mentioned but 6 is a magic number )
For those decrying it was rubbish I'm not sure how much else you expected to see or indeed what... There's so much in there today that we have a good idea for the future.
September - pointy elves/ giant giants
October - space marine and necron codexes plus model releases
November - slaaneshi mortals battle box for AoS
December - usual Christmas bumf
House of Orlock book + stuff
New beastgrave + warbands
New warcry starter
New AoS morathi book
New Blood Bowl season
All to slot in accordingly as well. I appreciate it's a 30k/40k forum but this gives us an idea for the rest of the year now. (Plus anything else I've forgotten...)

My guess is if there's an AT reveal we'll see it on Tuesday with Engine Kill.

The new ‘cron looks great, although I’ve never been a fan of exposed cabling like that. I still wish they’d revealed new Flayed Ones instead, though, because iI want the Necron line to become fully plastic too...

I thought it was a great preview. Lots of Slaanesh gets me hyped for the potential of EC, the Necron destroyer model looks fantastic, and they told us in advance not to expect tons of 40k. Lots of non-40k stuff for those into that sort of thing. No "BIGGEST PREVIEW EVER" shenanigans or giant waits between reveals. Good stuff

Them running on at the end with nothing to say and all was just boring.

It would probably have been better to leave the small amount of 40k content out of the preview and let the focus fall on the other games.
40k is around 70% of GW sales and to talk this up as a big release just makes them all look a bit foolish. I have no problem with other GW games getting some focus but the over hyping is getting out of control.
Hopefully we soon see the missing speeder and other models
