eeeeverything can be a stormcast.

I wouldn't put it past GW to start going the Gillette Razor route with Stormcast, enticing their players to buy the new Stormcasts because their crossbows have FOUR strings for a LEGENDARY SMOOTH SHOT.

That would be my guess. Possibly the other end of the strings are embedded in flesh or something. I expect any new Slaanesh stuff will be emphasising less sexual forms of excess and music has been one of their themes for quite a while. I don't think it's a new noise marine, but it could be a similar kind of concept for AoS.

To me it looks definitely something with a "Dark Elven" flavor, so Daughters of Khaine, Darkling covens and such, or Drukhari, but would be a bit weird, or Slaaneshi, which, given the releases, sounds like the most possible option.
Still, looks quite cool!

Never say never. There's definitely something unreleased for Idoneth that got as far as having promo pictures taken, at least if the Reaver promo photos are right about the eel bit.

I'd like to see something more for Daughters, however the bigger issue with them is more that the way their army costs out they are rather on the elite side of pricing; so it can be hard to find the points space to actually fit lots of neat stuff into them.


That said I would hope that GW will push out Endless Spells pretty fast - if Daughters were made with 2.0 in mind then the design and ground work must be done for their endless spells. I'd really hope GW cleans up that and gets out the endless spells or all the current Battletome armies

If it is a harp (which it looks like it could be) the only thing I can think of would be some sort of Siren.

This would fit the Deeepkin and Drukhari got Medusae so it's not a huge stretch to think of Idoneth Deepkin Sirens. But guess they are not in the book?

Other than that it could be something Slaaneshi but it definitely looks Aelf or Aeldari.

It's not worth a thing, but I was chatting with one of my local GW store workers, and we were talking about faction endless spells, and he said "In my opinion, they will release them fast enough, before the end of the year".

It's probably just wishful thinking and little more from both me and him, but I think such a timeframe might be appropriate. The kits are small enough to release 2-3 of them per month without pushing back other releases.

First reaction it was a harp, but seeing how pics are altered, it could be upside down, and holding up some kind of sails. Maybe chaos dwarfs flying ships? Sorry forgot the proper name for them in Age of Sigmar.

Not sure if it’d be a harp- the two strings on the left are angled inward. I’d say it’s a frame with something hanging from it.

Not necessarily. It's potentially doable, provided the arms are supporting everything in sequence.

It's be weird as hell but the old Reaper Bolt Thrower had a similar setup that we just never really saw showcased.

But look at the existing Bile model- the stiching is super neat, it is so small you can barely even see it on the model. The guy is a professional surgeon after all, and a perfectionist to boot.

The stiching is far to crude on that rumour pic. I reckon Darkoath or Orks are far more likely.

Firstly, this would be a plastic Bile, and plastics can't render the detail quite as finely as metal/resin could. Secondly we've no real reference for how closely zoomed the image is.

Not saying I absolutely believe it's Bile, but your reasons it isn't don't necessarily hold up.

Compare it to the model though- Bile has neat, well-cut lines with neat, barely visible stiching. Even with plastic being less detailed, the haphazard shape and crude stitching of the RE pic does not match the neat style of Fabius' coat.

Comparing a potential replacement model with the existing model may not be the best idea. Ahriman changed pretty significantly with his plastic update.

Oh, I'm not fully convinced it's Bile either, but I feel Haighus may be overstating the importance of the existing model. All I know for sure is that it's pretty obvious that this is stitched hide or flesh. Combine this with loose talk, rumors, and the aesthetics of existing model lines, and it's most likely Slaanesh, Grots, or Darkoath. The reason I lean toward Flavius Bile is that several other recent previews can fairly certainly be linked to Slaanesh while only a couple previews make me think Darkoath, and it doesn't look ragged enough to be a Greenskin model IMO.

I am probably overstating it, but the style really doesn't match. It isn't just about the sizes of the stitches, but the way they are uneven, and the lines are rough for the pieces of skin too. The existing EC stuff has generally neater, straighter lines, especially Bile.

The kind of roughness is much more congruent with the stitching on Ork trousers.

For a dude with 10k+ years under his belt, he aged quite well. Needs a haircut, maybe.

But seriously, Bile didn't join slaanesh due to the need of sexual adventures or other lust driven motivations, but simply by chance. His legion fell for the bondage goddess, he simply followed. That guy loves to tinker with science, he's a big nerd, he has no time for women or men, unless he can make them into super soldiers

Hot take: The one tiny, microscopic, minuscule thread of hope that Ork players have of getting new models and not having had to sit through an abysmal index for months longer than everyone else for nothing is going to be severed, and this AND the armored wheel picture are going to turn out to be a new GSC mining drill vehicle.

Strangely, the model will be hard-posed running over an ork boy and the neophyte driver will be giving the middle finger.

That's my interpretation of this image right here.

The rings look too regular and oblong for a water effect with ripples; I'd more wager some kind of magical mirror or other surface rippling with abnormal waves to the tune of strange magics.

Could be a portal or a magical mirror or a surface.

I'm going out on a long shot here:

"Silver Tower"/"Shadows Over Hammerhal"-esque Warhammer Quest expansion, focused solely upon the Aelves' containment of Slaanesh. Battle to keep Slaanesh's followers from finding their way into the In-Between!

It would explain the lack of a DoK hero blister and why there's still that mystery eel for Idoneth.

The teaser is focus on the oval, but if you look at the bits on the sides, they remind me of the scales on the Ophidian Archway. I still associate serpents with Slaanesh, so I'm going to say this is a crown or head dress for a Slaanesh model.

The bits on the side look kind of tyranid / daemon / drukhari, but the oval doesn't really seem like anything in the existing ranges. GSC throne, Noise Marine or new Slaanesh daemon all seem plausible and match up with stuff I believe is going to be released soon-ish. Necromunda or a new AoS faction is always possible too, since there's little clue what style they will have.

The top structure has a sort of metallic sheen to it, and I'm thinking the grooves are etchings. I'm going to guess this is a Slaanesh daemon in some form of elaborate armor.

Looks very similar to the preview from last week with all these organic scales. I agree Slaanesh seems likely.

On the other hand, we are likeley going into Grot release window sometime soon and I can't help but imagine these as carved chitin scales on a Grot hero/unit. I take my que from the fungoid cave shaman.



That couples with all the Grot looking weapons, the puffs of fungus spore clouds and the squig bits we've seen makes me think a sizable Grot release is around the corner.

I think this one, last one and the 15th May one are all from the same set, possibly the same model and I'd guess that it's Slaanesh and I'm going to speculate there will be a coordinated release for 40k and AoS with daemons, emperor's children and possibly a new mortal faction for AoS and an emphasis on body modification, music and ornate decoration over sexy BDSM stuff.

Also, if they are previewing Fulgrim, I would be surprised if they didn't do Leman Russ first, since there have been 2 chaos primarchs and only 1 loyalist so far and LR is probably going to be the biggest seller they could do.

EDIT: What happened with that harp-bow thing? Don't see it in the first page summary, but it would fit with Slaanesh.

I would love an over- elaborate mortal Slaanesh faction.

They could go super pretty hemaphroditic Kingdom Death style, or twisted body modification... perhaps a bit of both?

Even though some of the concepts are nice, Raging Heroes models look a bit too much "porn star costume party" for my taste. I would personally prefer it GW went in a more grotesque direction. Kingdom Death (the monsters and game stuff, not the pinups) is a good shout although it's several rating steps above where GW would be willing to go.

I think something AoS Slaanesh is more likely - the light and dark streamers seem to fit perfectly with "held between Light and Shadow" that they have going on there.

They're definitely something quite fine as well, so I think more streamers from armour/loin /hair against a tree stump (with the picture rotated about 45 degrees).

See, a big Slaanesh release is what I WANT; and GW loves misdirection. Which is why I’m predicting that outcome.

Angle is wrong for a pulped Slaaneshi on a base, you're looking at a Stormcast hero holding a slain Slaaneshi warrior as a trophy/warning to others in that case then.

There is a tassle bit on one of the Khinerai models that on 3 boxes of mine has broken off every time and that's just when I'm lightly scraping the mould lines off! To be honest I don't mind it gone as its so fragile I can't see it lasting any proper use. I do agree, the sculpts are outstanding and the detail great but darn it GW at least make the models have a bit of durability here and there

My personal theory is that it's at least in part a way to combat recasts. They may look delicate, but in HIPS they'll be surprisingly resilient, and attached with poly cement won't come off easily. However, try and recast those bits in resin and they're massively more fragile, not to mention more fiddly and time intensive to mould and cast.

That seems like a plausible explanation, but their track record for making things resilient is pretty bad. Like I said, a lot of my GW models have had bits break off while I was handling them fairly carefully for painting.

One way they could make stuff stronger and still have thin parts is to make sure that they get supported at multiple points. I try to model my miniatures like that as often as possible, with cables, ribbons and antennae all crossing over each other or draped over other parts of the model, but the monopose nature of the new sculpts makes it difficult and it would help a lot if the designers thought to make them with the intent of that being possible.

I doubt its got anything to do with recasters. More likely its an evolution of 3D modelling and printing being more normal instead of them having to sculpt by hand. IT likely lets them create masters and then prototypes of much thinner and more delicate models that would, with hand sculpting, possibly prove too weak to support being worked on long term without metal supports underneath (ergo the very nature of hand sculpting would dissuade them from too many super fine contact areas because they might have to remake that segment over and over)

I’m curious if they will fold the Spiderfang in with Moon Clan? Giant creepy crawlers aretheir thing too. The Stormcast Battletome did mention Tempest’s Eye being besieged by the Spiderfang, from below. “The Spear of Shadows” also features the Spider God for a paragraph or two.

I think some of the (regular) breakages may well be slight imperfections in the moulds, I've painted a bunch of bloat drones and one (but only one) of the spikes on it almost always comes off really, really easily despite looking pretty much identical to others that stay put, I suspect there's a slight 'score line' that gets cast in and just provides an easy break point (just try running a knife over a bit of sprue to leave a really really fine line then bend it and it will snap easily when an untouched sprue won't)

Is the Slaught rumour still alive? We've already seen snippets from the Rogue Trader book about the creatures being "Gellerpox Mutants" infected by a "Chaos techno-virus" that entered the ship when its Geller field generators broke down, so that's Chaos after all.

Given the fact that the models are NEVER what you think, I'd say THIS is the first picture we've gotten of Fulgrim. Or Angron, maybe. But anything you think it is...it isn't; going by history with WHC rumors and leaks, anyway. The whole point is teasing while giving nothing away. Even the Slaanesh claws are likely from something akin to Angron smashing a Slaanesh model into the ground; not an actual new Slaanesh model.

Maybe, but there were painted Rogue Trader bits shown early last year too and that isn't out yet either, so possibly they just sometimes get stuff ready way earlier than you might think.

I'm hoping that there is going to be a lot of ork stuff, which is why they needed to start painting it a year ago.

There most certainly will be a lag time between when they finish the models and have masters and castings made to when they've got the boxes and production system ready to slot them in for a big launch. If they plan it well this lag time is deliberate so that you have your finished masters and designed sprues ready and made into big expensive moulds in advance of actually needing them to be case for the big production push for a launch. That way if something goes wrong or gets moved there is room to fix that without breaking the release schedule and thus having knock on effects on other things.

Plus the way things work some models are going to be finished first and some last so those that get finished early might well sit around for a long while whilst the rest of the range is brought up to completion - this all varying on how many staff are working on it and in how much time per week they can spend on it. Lots of staff and lots of time means running many things side by side; a handful of staff or a side project and it might be bits here and there and thus slower progress (I think GW's internal development of more dedicated teams is getting around that and thus helping them speed up completing set projects rather than doing bits here and there).

This is a great point. Look at SoB, we now know there never were any models until the survey told them how much money they could make with new models. It might be that SoB will be the first army to not have a long lead-time on models, which could end up being a bad thing is they decide to just push out a bunch of booby nuns with mediocre rules.

Ehh, I'm hoping the "line infantry" unit, if such a thing comes along, is a smidge less ostentatious. I don't expect them to be what I actually want out of the box, but it'd be nice if the OTT stuff is limited enough that they can be converted.

I was thinking this too. But then, the other heroes that were released in the Malign Portents are also kind of 'humble'. They're not the biggest baddies in the army. The Knight of Shrouds, for example, is definitely outshined by the version of him on a steed, or Lady Olynder.

Slaves to Darkness has some bigger, more impressive leader type models. I think the Warqueen and Chieften are exactly as you described - leaders of Marauders more than anything else.

btw here is a huge coincidence:


Both weapons aren't a match, but both look extremely close. Since the claw comes from the new army out of rogue trader, are we looking at a possible expansion pass the boxset? Maybe the leak wasn't about a new slaanesh model.

Or a common base claw got turned into a Slaanesh appendage and a similiar looking crustacean Chaos mutation that is meant to evoke a deep sea feeling for the Void to fit with the ship part of space ship that got stuck on a Nurgle mutant. With 3D sculpting that's also a possibility.


Or it'll be for a new race included in a one-off game about carpenting, who knows at this point with rumour engine pics.

Definitely Imperial.

I was painting a Taurox Prime last night and it has extremely similar vents and pipes.

Looks like a top-down view of a new Primaris vehicle to me. I think the bottom right is a downward-pointing exhaust pipe, and the silvery pole thing is a hydraulic door or ramp.

Without being massively familiar with the Grav Tank kit (haven’t built one), parts of this seem too rounded to be Astartes?

What I think we’re looking at is an exhaust pipe (obvs!) and a turbine with a rudder of some kind.

The gentle sloping really isn’t putting me in mind of modern Astartes tanks.

I don’t see GSC being able to procure nor maintain skimmers.

Imperial Guard don’t even get them, and they’ve got Tech Priest support. Hence I’m leaning toward a Rogue Trader, who can probably afford such luxury.

But that was in 40K. Now we're in 40K 2.0 K Harder territory, and there's no telling what Cawly Sue will come up with next.

That said I'm a cynical old git in a cynical kinda-young git's body, so you're probably correct on it being a RT thing. That or a new Super Duper Cawl Speeder(that he's totes had sitting in his garage there the whole time so it's not actually "new", but he just forgot it was there behind all the Repulsors until recently ).

Some BL sources have plenty of civilian grav cars on planets - posing as noblewoman, Amberley had a Delorain Raptor grav car and pretty sure they cropped up quite a few Imperial worlds in Abnets books.

It might a grav throne upgrade to the old Patriarch model which I still have somewhere!

Could be a new Primaris thing - or Sisters of Silence - we have finally had something new for SOS from Foregworld so maybe they are getting some stuff from GW - they did have a lot of grav tech back in the day.

It looks like the rear end of a skimmer. First thought was some sort of Cult Limo, but it could just as easily be RT related.

Either that or it's a Squig.

Definitely a hover/fan boat of some Imperial design. I agree though it doesn't smack of Astartes to me. Rogue Trader or GSC hover car? If it is a hover Astartes vehicle I think we're looking at the new Primaris Rhino equivalent.

Having cult on the brain, all it takes is a few infected high level imperials and you have skimmers out the wazzo on a rich world. And I could easily see cross over with rogue traders as a dual availability kit. Though it's been ages since that's happened outside of space marines.

Go to the GW site and look as the rear-end of the Repulsor Tank.

That image looks very similar to the engines, sloping, piping, etc.

I'm staying strong with Primaris Landspeer, or the Primaris variant of a Landspeeder.

The new image shows way to much roundness to be space marine related, IMHO.

More like AdMech. Check this:



The grids and their round cuts, the whole lot of rivet, and even the little vents on the side. My bet is AdMech flyer or skimmer.

I whish for a flying Cult Limo, but seems unlikely. That or i don't want to get too much expectations about this
