Post by: Mad Doc Grotsnik


First of the New Year, 7 January 2020. - SOLVED! New Catachan Character, coming to FLGS soon (GW are sending a bunch free to Indy Stockists. Pic pending. I’ve got it in an email, but struggling to copy/pasta.

I reckon it’s an Ork Kommando.





Paint job looks to be green, or at least not a human skin tone? Muscles and fingers also seem Orky.

But, could be a Catachan, I guess?

14 January 2020



Reminiscent of an Ogre Gutplate. But general consensus is it’s too large, and may in fact be for the as yet unseen Giant army?

21 January 2020 - SOLVED! New Hyshian Elven infantry.





28 January 2020. Buggered if I know. SOLVED - Khainite Warband for WarCry.



4 February 2020 - SOLVED! Lumineth Hammer wielding infantry.



11 February 2020 - something Lumineth, possibly a monster looking at the size - SOLVED! Lumineth Battle Cattle.



18 February 2020 - some kind of shield boss or gut plate it would seem.



25 February 2020 revealed as the new Store Opening Model, Sgt Ripper Jackson




3 March 2020. Elf Hotpot?



10 March 2020 - current thinking is Orks or Cawdor.



17 March 2020. Something Chaos,



24 March 2020



31 March 2020. Ossiarchs is the smart money.



7 April 2020 - reckon its a sneaky peeky at a Giant.



14 April 2020 - Almost certainly Stormcast.



21 April 2020 - the claaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw



28 April 2020 - 100% Lizardmen. Possibly a Skink? Dare we hope for updated Saurus Cavalry? Because those models are awful.



5 May 2020 - could be a Khornate Daemon or Flesh Eater Court?



12 May 2020? Three fingered flutist. Ooer, sounds a bit rude!



19 May 2020 Skinny little Elfy.



26 May 2020. Is it a fish, or is it a fowl? Is a guppy? NO IT’S AN OWL!



2 June 2020. Is stompy? SOLVED! Space Marine Hammerfall thingy



Spoiler:


9 June 2020. Definitely a power fist, definitely chaos. But is Nightlords, Nurgle or World Eaters?



16 June 2020. Servo-skull. I reckon it’s for Astartes, if only because Ad-Mech just had a significant release wave.



23 June 2020



30 June 2020. Dark Elf aesthetic for sure. Possibly unseen model for the previewed WarCry warband?



7 July 2020



14 July 2020 - I whip my hair back and forth across your throat tearing open your arteries



21 July 2020



28 July 2020



4 August 2020

Im guessing ork commando kit, feels like it would match up with the ork boot on box of ammo which we got a few weeks back. Also I think fits in with some new ork stuff coming with the final PA Saga of the beast

"Saga of the Beast" purportedly isn't the final one, just the final one we have a title for.

I wouldn't be shocked if it's a Kommando/Tankbusta dual kit.

a) saga will bring in character model. So if this is it then the scout special character whose name I can't recall?
b) people keep saying PA6 is last but on what logic? Unless last 2 books are jam packed with factions with like 6 per book they can't be last ones or GW flat out lied.

The fingernails do take away from the possibility of an Ork model, but the proportions of the forearm to the hand are perfectly Orky. If this were 20 years ago and we were still in the era of wonkily proportioned human sculpts, I'd say it's a Catachan without hesitation. These days I'm not so sure they would make a human model with such huge mitts.

I don't think the binoculars being nice and neat would be an issue for a Blood Axe!

The nails bit is weird though. It could just be washed out from the saturation of the photo, but the newer kits(buggies, etc) have them slightly less pronounced where a heavy paintjob could make them indistinguishable from the finger when color's removed.

I guess the other possibility is that this could be for a line of Traitor Guardsmen or a new Ogryn based unit.

Easier to do 1 catachan model than update and give guard a high quality plastic regiment which they deserve.

Anyway, my guess is it will be a GSC character for their upcoming PA appearance.

I don't know enough about Tau and what their hands look like, but could it be a Tau model also?

I doubt it will be gsc, because they already gained a lot of models with there codex and they're not space marines

It's gotta be Catachan, that exact binoc comes in guard heavy weapon boxes and the watch is a common thing you see on Catachan arms, especially the newer command and heavy weapon kits.

About damn time, that original box is pushing 20 years old.

looks like IG binocs that came with the HWT's.
So for sure we have here a human.
But the arm seems big, burly and to musculous, for a normal one, so either Catachan, GSC or an ork, albeit the no nail one on the hand is wierd.

Otoh wishfull thinking, tit might be a traitor guardsmen with some blessings?

Catachan was my first thought too. Ork binoculars would have some customization.

They're now S4 so GW might be doubling down on the bodybuilder look, making them more like Goliaths than just burly humans.

My first thought was Ork Kommando. Actually I’m still going that way. The musculature and style of paint job and contrast look like the Ork range and style.

While Ork Kommandos are undoubtably cooler.
Catachans need new models a lot more desperately in my opinion.

And the lack of nails on that hand don't make it look very Orky.

A ratling or a squat, I’d say. The arm is too short for an orc or a human. The binoculars and nails are too tidy for orcs as well.

How? None of those models has a binocular or a watch that matches the rumor engine. Just having a telescope isn't good enough, since orks and catachan can have similar equipment.

None of the Psychic Awakening stuff we've gotten so far has been subfaction locked. More likely, if we get anything Guard, it would be an updated Basilisk kit(the current one is ancient and requires the Vehicle Accessory Sprue to be completed since the parts for the Chimera they give you don't actually have the hull mounted weapon on them! ) or some of the various "Regimental Advisors"(Master of Ordnance, Master of the Fleet, Primaris Psyker, Astropath) in a plastic boxed set.

I'm sure someone will be along shortly to say "BLOOD ANGELS! DARK ANGELS! BLACK TEMPLARS!"
Two of those(Blood Angels and Dark Angels) are their own factions, and Black Templars didn't get any models. So nyah!

The Blackstone Explorer models are all on shared sprues. They'd have to be physically cutting them apart to sell them individually.

Even the ones in Escalation are!

Which is, to be fair, a thing they do with tons of their sprues.

If you look at like half of the kits GW produces you'll see joins where the sprue has been attached to another sprue and cut off.

There's a difference between the sprues being attached to another sprue(usually said sprue is in the same kit) and physically cutting the individual items off of the sprue which is what would have to be done here.

I'd be interested if you've found any sprues where there are cuts but it's a single sprue kit.

If that is a Catachan then the new minis will be so poorly proportioned they'd have been better off leaving the old ones. Personally I'd hope for something more Kairic acolyte in build.

I still think it's a palstic kommando. It fits with two other rumour engines and Orks have been rumoured for a new release soon (saga of the beast). The binoculars fit since Blood Axes have always used Imperial gear and I feel people have an exaggerated view of just how ramshackle Ork gear is anyway. As for talons I'd say that each of those fingers end in a downward sloping point. The claws are likely there, just indistinct.

One of the more interesting rumour engines for a while tbh.

I agree with this also.

My first thought was Kommando, some of the more recent Orks have much less pronounced claws.

It also fits in with the Ork boot.

That said it could be Catachan and that would be no loss, we're almost certain a new Ork model with the boot and the "engine" before it. A new IG model wouldn't hurt either.

Which isn't at all the same thing as what Kan is saying. GW creates single sprues of a few different sizes. So if you pull three sprues from a box, you're just pulling one sprue that has been divided up into 3 sections. You'll see the breaks between each section that they do manually to fit them in the box. But the contents of the overall sprue will just be one unit type.

The Blackstone Fortress (and Escalation, and Shadowspear, etc.) sprues are different in that they have lots of different units/model types all jumbled together. They cannot just sell the Astropath from Escalation because she's part of a larger sprue with lots of other minis.

My first thought was Catachans, but I could maybe see it being a ratling. For those of you saying the proportions look odd, I'd say look at the brush strokes on the strap of the binos. I think that gives you a better notion of scale, as otherwise GW have been rather smart about the cropping etc with this, in being ambiguous and confusing to the eyes.

It is part of the new giants faction GW hinted at when they announced WFB coming back. They mentioned giants and Hysh for AoS.

"And what next, then, for Warhammer Age of Sigmar?

There are some HUGE (some might say giant) plans for the Mortal Realms… More news soon. For now, we have to keep it hysh-hysh."

Definitely not a gut plate, shape (and edges, ouch) is wrong.

It's a very large shield using a smaller shield as decoration.

Does look distinctly Gutplate.

But also, judging by the Stunty Shield, some what bigger than most Gut Plates?

Perhaps it is indeed armour for a Giant.

Gargant shield? Or belly plate? Maybe the new Gargants will be customizable for the major factions. The ability to make a very Ogor-y one, one for the Greenskins, a regular one, beastman, chaos, and maybe even a stormast themed one.

Ah, Imperial Knights, AoS style.
That said, I’m pretty sure the original Sky-Titans would have qualified as an Order faction, building castle-cities, herding and farming, and having blackpowder technology, so I’m slightly disappointed that this, if it is for them, is Destruction, even as I know why it pretty much has to be.

They might not be Sky Giants, but more like Noble Savage Giants this time round. Might not even be 'Gargants'.
It might be interesting to see a better breed of giant that distances themselves from gargants.

Space Pope's dead. Has been since the Damocles Gulf books.
And not comics or "I'll get you next time!" dead. Dead dead. Mont'ka ended with the Tau starting to utilize holographic overlays and recordings to fake him being alive.

Additionally, those gems are a thing they've been doing on the Idoneth...which was implied to be a thing they picked up from Teclis.
And there's a crescent moon, which is literally a thing commonly associated with Teclis via the Elf goddess Lileath.

Ehhh...we had rumor engines for Shadowspear at about the same timeframe via the "Daemon Engine".

Remember that we're getting the reveal for Teclis' Aelves on Thursday. The initial tease had "Spring 2020" for the release timeframe, so we still have at least a few months.

For me it seems it's inverted, a Staff with magical/spiritual things coming out from the crescent shaped part and the gem.

The infinite rune points to Eldar or Elf, since the staff and stone are bit more crude than normal Eldar objects.

So either some AoS caster or an exodite Worldsinger.

It's fairly clear that they're not squatting Aspect Warriors now, and there are a lot of them still left as Finecast which they obviously want gone. I would be surprised if there isn't another Eldar wave before the end of the year.

Given the mix of organic shapes and more Craftworld elements though, I'm going to guess an Exodite for Blackstone Fortress.

Well, one of the weirdest things about Phoenix Rising as the (semi-)big announcement about the no-mask Ynnari Exarch that "walks a unique path", who ended up having no rules in Phoenix Rising.

The entire Banshee kit can be assembled without masks, but there's no way to actually play mask-free Banshees in the game (presumably that'll be a Ynnari thing, or GW simply forgot about it).

See I never saw the announcement as a big thing. It's a nice bit of detail for the kit (despite the absence of sense lorewise) rather than a big hint at the future.

I don't really see Exodites being in Blackstone so my guess is going on the new elves in AOS.

Isn't it something like the two 'bumps' on the helmet sides are the part that generate the 'Banshee Cry'..meaning that even without the full helmet they still would be able to get the benefit of the Mask?

Or am I remembering something from Xenology?

Sorta looks like a warpstone staff head. Or maybe it's stone, and the staff body/haft itself is pilfered from aelves.

Pretty sure this is AoS and not 40k. Maybe it goes along with all the "ship" rumor engines we've seen and it's either Grotbag Scuttlers or some new Skaven sky contraptions?

That's correct. The bumps are what makes the banshee mask a.... well a banshee mask. They're psychosonic amplifiers or something.

But when people refer to the Banshee Exarch not needing a Mask anymore I think they mean the War Mask which is basically what Eldar Craftworlders use to avoid getting traumatised, remembering the awful things they do and generally staying sane. Exarchs are Eldar who can no longer remove their War Mask.

If it is not something completely unheard of it is one of the following two:

1. an Ynnari psyker:
+ infinity circuit/death Eldar rune + additional beams
+ smoke stuff similar (but not identical) to the Yncarne
+ the warpstone blade is sickle shaped, another death theme
- the uneven warpstone material is not very "eldary"
- the ribbon is not very futuristic
- the head of the staff is a cube and not egg-shaped

2. Elf from the shadow realm
+ smoke stuff like Mistweaver Saih
+ crescent shape like Mistweaver Saih
+ ribbons like Mistweaver Saih
+ Ulgu's realmstone is described as cobbweb-like, which matches more or less the crescent thing
- infinity symbol still very 40k Eldar typical

The infinity shape on the haft and the little oval blister where the crescent connects is shouting something Eldar to me. Its also got me thinking about an earlier engine pic. One that also has a mystery stone component, attached to something that doesn't seem to match its styling.

https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-4op8b-by4uA/Xd02OTy5V6I/AAAAAAABLY0/uAGldGy1rGQUi3ueKxS7ec4_LvHf37FrQCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/2019-11-26.jpg

My mad guess? GW are going to release at least two models(some flavour of Eldar and something Imperial) for the 40k setting, that feature blackstone components. Probably used to amplify or dampen psychic abilities.

You are right about the staff, but the pommel is not very Eldar-like, despite the gems/blister. If it doesn't deviate from already established shapes, it would be eggshaped, but it has hard edges. It is a frustum (had to google the term for the geometric shape ).
This way more similar to Mistweaver Saih. There you have everything: Crescent thingy held in a frustum-shaped support, with little gems on it.

This. A really ornate, elegant warhammer, with quite a narrow head, would suit elves (like the elven warhammer in Skyrim). A large maul, less so.

Catachan devils are tyranids too, maybe this is the first time we've seen one in model? They were supposed to be somewhat ravener/lictorlike.

It would! Very thematic, unfortunately unlikely to happen as Nids only seem to fight Blood Angels.. but you never know.. could be a very vague hint [I'm not holding my breath!]

@Cronch - could be- its a big head, nearly the same size as her torso so much larger than a Lictor and just referred to as a "throughly deceased Tyranid Organism".. maybe something new altogether.. although could see a Catachan Devil as a Blackstone monster...

Those are almost exact for the syllesske model as pointed out

The question is what is it, looks like a soup bowl with someones arm going into it, though it could also be maybe incense bowl, with the section going to side being some low smoke blowing out
my guess is either a shadespire warband with this being some cauldron for a slaanesh daemon, or base decoration for a larger model (could be fulgrim making suprise showing in the daemons/chaos knights vs ad mech/knights

While it does look orky as others have said it's small based on the pole it's mounted on,

so i'm just not convinced it would work even for a boy, and certainly not for a nob or character

I actually think this might be the buzzsaw weapon option for Deffkoptas instead, it would explain why it looks smaller and it makes sense that GW would update a model that is pretty much one of the oldest sculpts left in the Ork range that is in desperate need of revamping.

My fingers are crossed that the bodies will be really different, even if the heads/helmets are basically the same. Different bodies would at least allow for good conversions, and Im hoping in that respect they saved the best for last- as I've already gotten alot of milage from the other sets.

Interesting.

Definite Elf/Eldar aesthetic. But, bottom left that’s a hand. Which doesn’t, to my eyes, look to be painted metallic?

Could plauisbly be my much desires mortals.of slaanesh, but probably not because at this rate Fimir will come back first.

I would guess that's a Light/Shadow elf thing for AoS. Maybe all the theories of a Warp Spider Phoenix Lord will turn out to be right and that's a powerblade...

It seems to be Lumineth. We still have no hints of Shadowkin being on the way.

Is there really.anything the suggests it to be lumeneth? sure it's kinda left, and it's an unarmored hand but it.seems like a departure from.thier aesthetic as presented so.far.

The gem and curvature of the weapon is why I'm saying Lumineth.

We know there's more heroes to come for the Lumineth. I wouldn't be shocked if this is for some kind of assassin-ish character, fluffed around the element of wind/air.

The barbs scream Slaanesh to me.

Now what do we want to believe? That GW pulls another Ahriman to bring Fabulous Bill back to the EC fold, heralding a full-fledged codex? But then this is a bare hand, looking to small to reignite the Fulgrim-hype engine. then again Chaos marines tend to drop pieces of armour and go to war with cultists

AoS seems unlikely given how recent the Hedonites battletome is. But Underworld keeps giving us cools minis unrelated to full army-scale releases.

Maybe lumineth, or slaanesh. Dont really know about deepkin. The fist seems human/elf size, but the actual thing itself does not look like weapon nor shield. -_-.

Apparently some Patas do have blades almost that long, but I think this thing is intended to be more of a sword-catcher than an offensive weapon.

Looks like a swordfish shape. Do deepkin have a war band yet?

That'd be really awkward to maneuver to catch a sword- its way too long, and you'd have to be absurdly precise and up against an opponent too clueless to alter their swing. A gap of a couple inches at the end of a 3-4' reach just isn't workable for that.
Its a fancy fantasy stabby thing, nothing more.

If it is, it's for a whole new season. We have all the warbands for Beastgrave known--and Ossiarch are not one.

The sword says “slaanesh” to me. The next pic is definitely OBR.

The hammer pic from Feb was revealed recently. It's a Lumineth monster of some sort...


and here's the pic with the tree growing off the rock


Hope it's not super old news. I couldn't find it in the thread so I figured I'd post it.

I was thinking leg or arm "armor." But it is 100% confirmed giants given the description. They're not usually accurate when they caption these things, but I'll take their word for it

I'm probably wrong but I was getting a banner feeling from this one.

Yeah I get a banner or even a giant loincloth vibe from this.

That axe is definitely OBR to start with.
Looking at the details though it’s also far too big for basic troop sized stuff.

I’m calling either more stalker sized stuff or a big monster for them (colossus?)

Looks metal to me- there's a rune-shape etched just above the skull.

My initial reaction was a giant's back, but unless they're showing something on the sprue or unassembled piece (which they've never done before afaik), its too small and cuts off in the upper corners of the pic.

I'm thinking shield.

Looking at the image again, I’m wondering if is Giant Scaled.

The ropes look too poorly detailed for a large model, but in line with standard infantry?

Reason I initially though Giant are the two top corners. Nice, neat ends, as if we’re seeing something unassembled?

Some sort of rock with stuff tied onto it, probably for giants

Going back to the stabby knife, it certainly looks Lumineth. The shape matches the style of Eltharion's plume and a symbol that's found on the card punchout in the new boxset. Forgive me if this symbol is already known, AOS is not my thing.

At this point it could be another Elf aspect. Literally any teaser could be another Elf aspect.

The upper side shapes makes me think it could be some kind of stone throne or something similar, it's also noteworthy that the center skull it's "stitched" to the back thru the eyes wich may hint some kind of hole behind.
