    i'd be extremely suprised if we EVER saw these released as official armies, perhaps the best we could hope for is a WD army list with conversion ideas like the zombie pirate list in this months WD

    did you seriously ever expect to see the Ogre Kingdoms as a full army in their own right?

    That was... disturbing at best. My first thought were "An army of Ogres. Hah! THey'd have to be in ten man packs, and really short. Poor ogres." Mmm-Hmm, I was wrong.
    I think that OK is Cathayan. They are from the east, look like 12ft-tall fat-ugly Monguls (nothing against Khan) and they use Mongolian-esque armor. If they aren't Cathay, it will be some Elfish race.
    That's what I bet they will do for Nippon. The Elves have a tower there called 'Tower of the Rising Sun' (be cool if it was House of the Rising Sun, it's a good song). Anyway, WD will probably make an Elf List with 1-3 new units and some new weapons, some nifty conversions, a pat on the back and a kick in the arse. Yup, Nippon's screwed.

    To be honest, I'd expect Chaos Dwarves to make an appearance before they visit Cathay, Ind or Nippon. They've given us all a taste of them with the release of the hellcannon, so I think that they will be the next project - perhaps the will tie that in on the tails of the new range of plastic dwarfs.

    Cathay would be interesting - the guy who thought up the world thinks of the place as inhabited by monkey-men (a Monkey Magic fan I think ) and is not know for being swayed from his plans, so that should stick (imagine a plastic boxed set of monkey-men, yay!). So ogres are most certainly not Cathayan - the Cathayans summonned the Maw comet to get rid of them! Ogre lands now are the mountain passes on the way to Cathay (perhaps representing the Himalayes of our world); originally they would have been north of Cathay, pre-Maw.

    Nippon shouldn't be HE if ever released, the only have the Tower of the Rising Sun near Nippon, that lands themselves are shrouded in mystery and nothing definite is known about them, not even if inhabitants are human, elves, dwarves or anything else.
    The iron crowned is getting closer,
    Swings his hammer down on him,
    Like a thunderstorm he's crushing,
    Down the Noldor's proudest king.

    Under my foot, so hopeless it seems.
    You've troubled my day, now feel the pain.

    Can you say clan Eshin? they have the whole ninja thing covered, I wouldn't see another mary like this.

    I think that the nipon would be more oriented towards the Bushido (wich means the way of the warrior) and the samurai theme, especially samurai pandas!
