The much-hyped Smogcon announcement was put up on Youtube today, and as everyone and their dog expected following the Colossals announcement, Hordes is getting more Gargantuans.
On the Minion side of things, we got the following info:
1) We are not getting a Gargantuan. If you expected one, you clearly have not been playing Minions long enough.
What this is exactly, only PP and its playtesters know. It looks a lot like Maelok except has a chain of human tiny skulls around its neck, indicating that it is much bigger than Maelok. Thus it is likely a large-based warbeast of some kind. That could potentially be the perfect release for Blindwater, perhaps leading to a plastic Wrastler kit.
It is quite likely to be Undead, or at the very least something to do with passage to the world of the dead. I would then speculate that it has some kind of douchy Cryxian ability like anti-magic, making Feralgeists, magical weapons, going incorporeal, Dark Shroud.... any of that BS. Or probably all of it. That would be sweet, and not completely unreasonable following the Sacral Vault.
I also suspect that it'll have an affinity with Calaban, just to piss me off......
