I'm really hurting for a good Manticore. The Chaos one is so ugly it hurts and the Mierce one is way too big. Even decently sized bat wings are not that easy to get, let alone a lion that has a fitting size for them *and* a rider.

Remember the old one that fit a big square base, had a sorceror ridingt it and had a mouth so full of teeth it could hardly close it? That was one of the first Warhammer monsters I saw and I never found one in one of the few stores that carried GW stuff. Sigh. And I never bought a Necrosphinx to convert one, either. I just want a squat quadruped scorpion-lion-bat monster that doesn't look like total gak, is that too much to ask?

Where do you get that he is eight feet tall? He's shorter than the Chieftain (who is in turn smaller than the Bloodbound heroes) and significantly shorter than the Knight Questor.

That he is:

a) bigger than a space marine and

b) he's described as being extremely tall in the novel (also being first one to die... spoilers I guess but c'mon he was the black guy, of course he's going to be the first to kick the bucket)

Eh, even Cadians are taller than Space Marines it seems. GW isn't exactly consistent with scale. I was curious as I keep seeing this fact mentioned. He really doesn't seem that tall when compared to other models. He's somewhere between the height of a GSC Neophyte and a Chaos Warrior.

In the novel he's quite tall. Still, the exact height is unknown.

It's a human faction it's made up of all the religious zealots of sigmar witch hunters, flagellants, warrior priests and the war altar of sigmar. In the grand alliance tome their job is to make such faith in sigmar remains strong after the stormcast leave to do other things and handle the general cleansing and to well stop chaos cults.

Also tzeentch is causing cults to rise well everywhere. A common mistake is people still think they are part of the "free people" or free guild faction they have been separated into two armies. Now of course GW could pull a fast one on us but I do believe that the rumor image is sigmarite.

In the end of fall of cadia there are a bunch of eldar people. Their names are in the dramatis personae page floating around in the sisters rumor thread.

This seems related to the Eldar in question probably getting a model for the next book. Also this gives credence to the Dark Eldar robes theory and a possible Eldar Triumvirate. The Eldar Shadowseer + Grynx, some Dark Eldar model, and the corsair/exodite/some type of eldar cool dude they leaked that shows us the guy from the leaked webway gate cadia picture who towers over all the other eldar.

People were arguing if his cloak was a razorwing.

Yeah, that's a big base for what is presumably a single eldar character, even with the cat on it. Would love it to be Malys with a particularly elaborate train on her dress but I wouldn't have thought the Deldar to have Gyrinx around what with them being somewhat psychic.

As cool as a new (old) eldar faction would be I actually hope they don't go that route. We are reaching insane levels of bloat and too many factions are becoming stagnant. I don't think it's exodites also because there have been zero rumors of exodites. It will probably be a shadowseer special character, after all the harlequins have a very small line of models and it makes sense to expand it, especially when they are playing a role in the campaign.

Whats the purpose of that snark?

I paint hundreds of models a year and I am simply shedding some light on this, I use massive bases for fiddly models often, positioned near the edge just like he has it.

It's not that large of a base.

It's the same size base as the Skitarii with Transauranic Arqebus, the 60x35.5mm Oval Base

Please note that GW makes and uses no less than 6 oval bases.

From smallest to largest:
60x35mm - bike base
75x42mm
90x62mm
105x70mm
120x92mm - traditional Flyer base
170x105mm - Knight base

So indeed the one pictured on the Grynx is not that big. But is it the 60x35, or the 75x42?

It is. Gyrinx looks to be about as big as a Gryph-Hound, and in order to get that kind of base usage you need to do 60x35.5mm

Incredibly unlikely there will be an exodite. We already have descriptions of the force and characters and none pop out as an outcast. It also makes no sense fluff wise, exodites avoid everyone like the plague, they are space hermits that exist on the fringes of the galaxy. I would expect them to pop up in another campaign involving Nids and or Necrons from the eastern fringes before they would pop up near the eye of terror, you know, the exact site of the destroyed Crone worlds they went as from away from as possible.

That said, I am not crapping on the idea, just adding some salt to the reality of the situation. BTW you can build an exodite army already using DE and CWE kits mixed with Seraphon/Aelf kits pretty easily.

While the fluff from Fall of Cadia doesn't mention an Exodite character, the 5th edition rulebook (which introduced the then new Time of Ending storyline including the Emperor's throne failing and the Astronomicon flickering) came with this Eldar map showing lots of Exodite Worlds



There were a few rumors about Exodites during the last 18 months, the latest this week from WiskeyPriest on Faeit who was told one of the new Eldar character models would be an Exodite. While I don't consider this an information from a reliable source, Atia mentioned there is a chance for an Exodite release at least twice last year. I'm not convinced by the current rumors that it will happen now but if Celestine was meant to be a 'teaser release' for SoB later in 2017, the same could happen with an Exodite character model.

And the WZF campaign book 1 didn't spoiler the Thousand Sons release either

Gyrinxes are more associated with Harlequins and Craftworlders than Exodites, for what it's worth - Exodites generally prefer the scaly kind of critter.

It's so strange referencing MH and having people know and love the games. I come from the PS2 days of yore and no one would believe me they were great games for years. It always brings a tear to my eye to see how far the community came with each release and how far it will go.

A duardin pistol would look more like the rifle that the Cogsmith carries, with a wooden grip and dwarven runes. This has none of the elements that makes it feel dwarvish to me.

It's gotta be 40K Space Marine of some sort. That handle/pistol grip is identical to those on the Space Marine bolt gun/pistol.
If it were Duardin it would be more ornate and covered with filigree just as Ghaz suggests

If we assume the cloak, gyrinx tail, and other revealed hints have mostly been focused on Eldar; and we also assume that the rumor of three-hero boxes for factions stands (Triumverate Of The Imperium, Aledari, then Chaos), it makes perfect sense a more archaic pistol belongs to a Chaos Marine of some sort.

So questions I'll ask to point in that direction are- do we believe a new Cypher model is coming, where is Fabius Bile in all this, and what other Chaos hero could make a first appearance(or reappearance)?

That's definitely AoS. Look, there's a hammer on that gun. I've flipped through a lot of 40k models and there is no instance of a pistol with a firing hammer, even on the "archaic" Inquisition weaponry.

We don't know where Fabius Bile is in all this, but Cypher definitely makes an appearance in "Fall of Cadia".

A lone robed individual exhibiting Pre-Heresy Astartes combat tactics attacked a vault in the depths of an Inquisitorial fortress. Once inside the vault, he was "whisked away" by forces unknown.

Nah, definitely a hammer. There's no way that hooks on to anything, and it is the same basic shape as what you might see on a revolver.

I do agree that it looks in motion - the last gun we saw in the Rumor Mill looked like it was strapped to a mount and that looked AoS as well. Mounted Witch Hunters/Duardin hype!

Verviedi wrote:AdMech Phosphor Pistols have firing hammers. So do Phosphor Serpentas and Radium Carbines.

Eeeh... they have machinery where a hammer would historically go but I think it's a stretch to assume they fulfill the same purpose. Comparatively, Plasma Pistols have a knob or nut where a hammer would go, but it looks more like a venting or charging port than something you need to cock to fire.

This clearly looks like something that is involved in the firing mechanism.

Post by: StraightSilver


I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say I think that may be some sort of combi-bolt pistol.

Aren't bolt pistol holsters usually squared off?

The shape of that holster suggests that rather than a bolt pistol muzzle the shape of the gun at the end is curved, like a plasma pistol.

I think there is a shot selecter to toggle between the two.

This is wild speculation and probably wrong, but plasma weaponry is normally associated with Dark Angels so I reckon it may well be Cypher but they have merged his weapons into combi pistols?

Even if it's just a staright bolt pistol and not a combi if you look at the direction the holster straps are in it has to be from a model in a pretty dynamic, running forward pose, which would also suggest Cypher.

If he had a running pose with the plasma pistol drawn and the other hand reaching for the bolt pistol, that would make for a great Cypher. Like showing him rapidly reacting to a fight.

Though if it really hard to load a belt feed revolver in a fire fight.

Try not to think about the size of bolter shells relative to the size of the magazines, you'll come to the conclusion that you get two, maybe three shots per reload, and those guys are lucky if they go into battle with one spare clip on their little fanny pack.

Thing is, the gun is holstered. So this would mean he is not using the gun and his hand is free for something else in his right hand. So if this bit is used it will not be for like the two beautiful pics you have shown.

Oh yeah, that too. Unless imperial magazines are really bags of holding, they should only be getting like 4-6 shots off.
Anyway, maybe the pistol is combi-revolver? Perhaps the top revolver part uses high caliber / explosive rounds for armored / large targets, whilst the lower, belt-fed part is automatic and is used for lightly armored / numerous targets?
The ejection port does appear to be under the revolver cylinder, though the gun does seem a bit small to have 2 barrels.

Models generally can't be invalidated. Wargear might come and go, squad or army composition may change...and the occasional special character is off'ed, but even if they re-do the entire Imperial Guard (and I hope they do) it means absolutely nothing. You still have Imperial Guard models. I can see it being a pain if you were in the middle of constructing a force, but there is a shed-load of Cadian plastic out there in shops, on eBay etc.

It's not quite spikey enough to be chaos, so my first thought was inquisition. Especially the belt buckle style fits inquisition, but even that doesn't quite hit me as correct. The pointed part of the hoslter is really weird. It seems a little on the thin side, so that would suggest a human equivalent model. I'm not entirely convinced it's not necromunda related. Or some other human subfaction in 40k. It also doesn't seem ornate enough to be considered a master crafted pistol (except fro the thinness and fancy holster maybe).

Hm. Ejector on the left, gun would be strapped on left leg. Handle reminds me of DE handle, but tip reminds me of old school marine launcher. There's also a adeptus mechanicus skitarii look to it. I am gonna have to say it's squats. There's a steampunkish vibe there. IMHO If it's not that, it's Chekhov's Gun.

The third one may need to get rid of that spike. Dunno, I'm not liking it, it feels that contrasts too much with the rest of the model.

Honestly, the super-swirl Eldar looks kinda like the Fulgrim FW model to me, but not enough to make me want to buy it. The red Kabalite Eldar is pretty cool lookin' and I wouldn't mind getting if it was a separate kit. But the last one is just too... "royal" for my taste. Just too much flair and nonsense.

You pretty much point out the problem, you either like the special character or you don't. Our club doesn't play with SC because they sort of ruin the game because they are usually pretty unbalanced.

So if you had the choice between a new kit for an army or 2 special characters for that army. A new kit is something everyone can use, special characters not so much.
Basically what I'm saying is that I don't like GW wasting time making SC when they could use the same time to make kits for armies instead.

Those two models were done that way to allow them to be maximum faction spreadage.

Well they can reboot the Tau and say that due to the 13th Black Crusade Tau spread throughout the galaxy and became something more than a flashy afterthought, thereby giving them a reason to be involved more often rather than GW always having to find reasons to duck over to the tiny little spec of the galaxy where the Blueberries hang out.

And they can use that opportunity to rebrand them as the T'au™ Aempire™.

End Times: Khaine didn't get models, which was kinda/sorta making sense since it basically just was new army lists for combined Elf armies. Still bugged the hell out of me that they didn't update Tyrion, Teclis, or Malekith...buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut we know why now.

We don't know where Celestine's Crusade has ended up after taking a jaunt through the Webway. With the Eldar being a part of this, every faction can and will probably show up.

I think it's rather telling that the way Mont'ka ended was with Farsight headed back to his Enclaves and having to deal with a Tyranid threat on par with the one that the Imperium fought at Ultramar.

I can see there being a parallel story going on with the Nid invasion that was started with Shield of Baal, forcing the Imperium to fight at two fronts.


Yeah that's what I'm hoping for too. Big campaign involving Tau, 'nids, Orks, Necrons and probably Ultramarines too because it wouldn't be a GW release without at least one SM faction.

Would give me a shoe-in hoping for exodites too

I would be okay with this, but it is an Indomitus Pattern back, not a Cataphractii Pattern back. It certainly could just be a new Terminator Librarian, but where is the fun in that?

There is a robe or cape extending off the right shoulder, which could correspond to Draigo or Stern's capes.

It's not a complete model. All we got was a tiny bit of it.

What sets Cataphractii and Indomitus apart? The widened back and the shoulderplates. If you built the Cataphractii Captain from GW, there's definitely a way that it could be done in such a way.

I'm still going for Ezekiel in TDA though. Between the gunslinger pistol and the hintings in FoC about a lone black-armored Astartes getting a relic from inside of an Inquisitorial fortress' most secure vault...
I'm thinking the third book might have Cypher, Ezekiel, Belial, and Azrael with the latter all in TDA.

Indomitus has the sort of T shape with vents on either side, which is what this piece displays. Cataphractii has a generator with tubes coming out. If it is Belial, that would make sense as well. Dude should going after Cypher like nothing else right now. I agree that Cypher is almost definitely going to get a new model (which makes the fact I just bought him REALLY irritating, but also par for the course. Happened to me with Devastators and Assault as well).

I'm going with an Astartes Triumvirate with the following characters:

New plastic Dante
New plastic Draigo
Redone plastic Emperor's Champion. (Or, alternatively, new Plastic Azrael)

I say the Emperor's champ as the last one because the Templars were featured in the Fall of Cadia I, and the current Emp's Champ model has a holstered bolt pistol on his leg. The model has been around a long time, and the new pistol teaser shown would, to me anyway, make sense to give the Champ. It's an old school heresy era relic bolt pistol given as wargear along with the Black Sword once he's chosen as the champion.

It would also lead nicely to one of the loyalist Primarchs returning being Rogal Dorn as was alluded to by a point regarding Trayzn having a "Massive man in golden power armor" in his tessaract vaults.

That's my take on it. May be completely off base, but it would be a way to give two or three of the non standard book marines something nice in the form of updated Lords of War that other Imperial armies could potentially have some fun with.

Add salt to taste, and take it easy.

Except, y'know, if you happen to like the character or model and appreciate multiple choices when picking models for your army.




You pretty much point out the problem, you either like the special character or you don't. Our club doesn't play with SC because they sort of ruin the game because they are usually pretty unbalanced.

So if you had the choice between a new kit for an army or 2 special characters for that army. A new kit is something everyone can use, special characters not so much.
Basically what I'm saying is that I don't like GW wasting time making SC when they could use the same time to make kits for armies instead.


Nice looking stuff sells and no-one cares about your local clubs' house rules. Most people can figure out how to use a SC model for a generic character as well. I personally don't like using SC, but I enjoy the painting models and still manage to use them in my own games as generic/my own characters. Given that GK have no plastic HQ, it's far from pointless.

The gears are for a khornate demon engine. You can see the Pistons would turn and make the symbol.

The bolt pistol has been confirmed as being Cypher's. For more information look at Gathering storm's thread. Page 68, big image with rawbutt gorillaman on it.

Have we seen that GK with the hammer before? Might be his psychic hood we saw as well.

Woah, that Cypher looks pretty sweet. Not a fan of Roboute though. GK character looks like a kitbash.

OP updated. Welp, we have 3 things left unsolved and they all look rather Duardin-y...

Cypher looks absolutely awesome. What a dynamic and moody model. Not so hot about Guilliman but i'm sure others will find him awesome looking.

Looks like something Mechanicus-y. Reminds me of a Phosphor Pistol from Skitarii crossed with the Electro-Priest gauntlets.

Looks AdMech-esque. That bit in the background looks like some sort of bushing

Is it me or does the colour look very similar to the two (painted) unsolved images? The first one of the "dreadnought" and the hunting harpoon.

I can't help but lean toward AoS Duardin. In conjunction with the one or two other hints that havent been shown yet that were also kind of mechy, I think it makes sense.

It's definitely an energy weapon. Maybe to Dwarfs have tesla coils now.

I love how every time a new "hint" is given, several people post "Dwarves, gotta be Dwarves. Duradin inbound"

Yet so far ZERO have been Duradin. Are Duradin rumored to have a release soon? Or does everything 40K that is remotely "steam-punk" automatically invoke the "dwarves" response?

Look at the color scheme of this new one, the harpoon thingy, and the very first teaser. All very brass and coppery or that blue glow stuff.

Looking at the silver "bearings" near the top of the image I detect a trace of the striation that un-cleaned/un-smoothed 3-d master prints sometimes have. See that on a lot of stuff (dystopian wars springs immediately to mind) but I think its the first I've noticed on GW stuff.

The first one didn't have "blue glow stuff".

The bottom two definitely share similarities beyond the metal coloration, but even then some of it can be coincidental (the blue on the gem for the spear v the "orbs" on the last just being the case of blue gem v energy collection).

Literally the only thing we reasonably believe is Duardin is the first preview, as there is what appears to be a Duardin ancestor rune on the casing of whatever it is.

I feel with the latest we can confirm based off of our known impressions on how the Steamhead S will be. They have been described as a "Mechanized" army in the first teaser waaaaaay back in the AOS primer campaign book.this latest item seems to follow that as I spy a it has several components: a drill attachment, the center part seems to be several cylinders, and it gives off a kind of Tesla or Clockwork vibe.

Literally the only thing we know about the (name dropped later) Steamhead Duardin from that book is that they're within Chamon. Grungni gathered his scattered folk and established the Iron Karak.

Grimnir strode alone to the Hills of Aqshy and ended up doing battle with Vulcatrix, leading to him being scattered into flaming fragments.

The very first teaser is 100% dwarf and it's clearly a big steampunk machine. That's why we've been waiting for dwarfs since day 1 and why anything steampunk machine-y makes us think dwarfs.

They're rumoured yeah. And none so far that have been revealed have been Duardin, but there's still some accounted for, including one that has a dwarf like face on it.
