Greetings, everyone!

Since we are drawing near the completion of wave 1 I keep wondering what the future will bring for the Mortans, particularly if there will be models with enchanted/magical attacks or tactics like circular slash/circle of death.
But most of all I dearly hope we'll see some Ordo Annihilistum sorcerers and their Chaos magic Wink.

I'll be very thankful for any piece of information, even hints are perfectly fine (in order to not spoil the suspense haha Smile)

Among others, under the banner of wave 2 there will be Gargants marching for the empire, and they will bring with them some serious melee carnage. The legions will also get the needed lighter infantry support with the auxiliaries.
Then you will have some assassins dealing out quick death in secret.
The full destructive potential of chaos magic will likely be revealed in wave 3, but who knows if we might see a glimpse of it a bit sooner... Smile

Wonderful news! This new entries will surely bring much more tactical options Smile. Meanwhile I'll wait patiently (maybe helped by some Lexotan haha) for the Annihilistum.
Thanks a lot for the quick answer!

Assassins and Auxiliaries? Great! What the heck are Gargants?

I think they are half human half ogres.
They inhabit the province of Tarticum bordering banebrood lands.

That's right, Gargants are half-ogres. They are an important part of the legions, but they are treated rather like second-class citizens in many Federati of the Mortan Empire.

Most of the Mortan Releases in Wave-2 will be Legions and Magistratum, so Technostratum will have more Focus in Wave-3.

Great news!
I`m looking forward to see what kind of aproach you took with the Assassin.
And the Gargants as another heavy hitter unit are really appreciated Smile

Indeed what the Legions lack now is speed, maneuverability and a hitter unit with a tactic similar to hill ogres/guthackers/cromlech guard… to use against large units. The auxiliaries and gargants should address these little weaknesses Smile
