I'd be sad if they didn't bring in Lizardmen. Even if they can't support a new faction, they could print some neutral cards. At least I have orcs for back up. Beware my greenskins, waaargh!

I would have to agree with you on this one.  I love the lizardmen.    but as it stands it's no looking to good.

One can only hope.

 I agree with both of you If one race has to be done it is Lizardmen - they are just awesome!

That's a good point.  With the lizardmen being on orders side............ only because they'll fight everyone that is not reptilian. Lizardmen perfer being left alone to contemplate the meaning of life. I can picture a sweet Slaan mage preist as one of the cards protecting him realm.   Skaven are just plan evil.

Skaven would work really well given the rules outlined so far. If the units had a low resource cost but lots of loyalty icons then you could get a real swarm feel if you were playing a "pure" Skaven deck. You'd start off small but your army would start to grow much faster once you've got a few units out (and the rats start multiplying).

A few thoughts:

1. I suspect that we will not see more races than the announced six races during the first couple of years of the game. The reasons for this are that (a) additional races must be introduced in starter packs just as the High Elves and Dark Elves with there own card design etc., and (b) the 20 new cards per battle pack format only allows the support of about six races plus a few other race cards in rare cases.

2. I also suspect that the battle packs will be thematic, so that six battle packs will be used to reflect epic battles in the Old World history such as "The Siege of Middenheim" during the Storm of Chaos.

3. Instead of support additional races with their own card design etc., it will be far easier to use the keyword feature to allow construction of thematic decks. For instance, when relevant, Chaos cards can have the Tzeentch, Nurgle, Slaanesh and Khorne keywords and Empire cards can have provencial keywords. With time this will allow players to construct thematic decks which focus on specific mechanics, without the need to introduce additional starter packs.

Well, I think certain other races have a potential for being introduced to fulfill some "speciality" roles or as promos or "fluff holders" (Lizzies in a  Lustria Battle Pack) not neccessarilly as fully supported factions. If the game goes strong, there is always a chance to make starters for other factions, but granted that would bring expectations for further support for such races, so as painful as it is for me to admit, I'm afraid this is not very likely.

As it is now, I eagerly await more info on the game.

Just like a theme which permeates a cycle, I think the Scavens will not exist as a separate entity (yet, if at all) but absorbed into an existing race.

After I've read the rules and seen the first battlepack I would presume that the Skaven will be destruction only neutral cards...
