This week will end with a bang heard around the galaxy, as we blow the lid off something huge for the 41st Millennium. There’s so much Warhammer 40,000 goodness packed into this preview that we couldn’t fit anything else in…

Catch it on Saturday, May 23rd, live on Twitch from 1:45 pm UK time. As always, we’ll round up the news as it breaks in a massive article in case you’re not able to catch it live. We’ll have more info for you as we get closer, but let’s just say you might want to clear your calendar and arrange an online watch party with your friends for this one.


This could go into the Silent King thread, but since it's not specifically about him I opted to give us a new Preview thread.

New Tyranids right - all 40K means new Tyranids right - it does I'm sure!!! Biggest thing would be new Tyranid plastics such as an awesome plastic pyrovore!!! Come on GW!!




Ok yeah so hopefully some Necron goodness and some new fancy things too. We've still got those primaris bikes and such we saw previewed AGES ago in a bit of a blurry sneak peak picture that got out into the wild. So I figure we'll see them as well.

It only feels like ages ago. That supposed 'leak'(which still looks like a bad photoshop job given a heavy dose of blurring to cover it up) was the 27th-30th of December...a time some of us Infinity fans know well for hoaxes from the Spanish community.

Correct. It lends a bit of credence to the idea of this being the announcement for a new starter set and an 8.5 edition.

Glad it's 40k only. Hoping for some good Necron stuff. Dream would be the appearance of EC in some form but that seems a bit silly given all the Necron hype

As ever I'm going to expect nothing good so I'm either not disappointed or pleasantly surprised.

Weren't the last three previews billed as the biggest thing ever?

While I had no problem with that, lots of people did when it was a split affair. Hopefully they aren't setting people hopes too high. I have plenty of stuff already, so as always I will welcome anything new and cool but won't really mind if it doesn't live up to the hype since it will save my wallet and backlog.

I don't believe so. It was only the Adepticon reveal, which should have shown off everything, that was marketed as the biggest reveal ever.

So, you've technically got to combine the past reveals into one, which gave us:
*A new 30k Primarch model
*Mega gargants
*The full reveal of the Lumineth lords
*Two new Warcry bands
*A new Blood bowl team
*The final expansion for Blackstone Fortress
*Illuminor Syskhah(?)'s new model, plus a new Inquisitor
*A Harlequin character and the SoB psyker (though the former is supposedly for Imperium, not Harlequin )
*A couple new Forgeworld models, including Saul Tarvitz
*Plus a few other things

I get that it's not the biggest reveal ever. But they could go all out on Saturday. We've had teases of the Silent King, Fulgrim, 9th edition, etc. So there's potential that the hype could be worth it

As mentioned, it was the pre-lockdown AdeptiCon preview which was billed as the biggest ever (and part of that was that it was due to have the largest audience in attendance of any GW preview). This weekend's preview may have originally been planned for AdeptiCon or it's just as likely it was planned for WarhammerFest.

Seriously though, it's probably just a new Primaris Lieutenant or something.

Nonono. They're going to do a Microsoft and release 10th edition.

8.5 edition with new starter set of Necrons vs space marines with new primaris grav bikes.

Thats my bet.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

Its the big bang. We have rise of Necrons, Silent King returning, end of Psychic Awakening so this will herald the start of the next chapter. Ynnari making a bigger splash (Yvraine promised to help Ephrael Stern with Necron threat).
And of course we'll probably see the next Primaris wave previewed.

New Necron units or at least new models.
New Titans for Titanicus would be great though.

Well that would be Adeptus Titanicus, not 40k, so I probably wouldn’t get your hopes up for that.

* Grav bikes to never be released outside the starter, just like the Suppressors and Gravis Captain so if you want those models it's either eBay or buy a bunch of other models you don't need at all.

I seriously don't want to have to pick up a whole starter box just to get my hands on Primaris Jetbikes, I already own more Intercessors and Phobos marines than I will ever have a use for.

If you expect new kits to come right away in solo rather than being combo box exclusive for a while you are in for a dissapointment.

I'd love for the DW to get the Marine half of a starter box. Imagine if the Kill Team Cassius set got hit with the Primaris bat

That isn't the way confirmation works. If its an announcement of the thing, that does confirm it. But unless they specifically say 'it isn't happening ever,' it doesn't confirm it 'the other way'

Extra Special rules for Primaris Jetbikes Included. Game breaking writing is an additional bonus.

Silent King Fiction - A hero of the Imperium will manage to create a stalemate type situation. Silent King model is thicc tho.

That would make the most sense of all Chapters, but I am afraid DW is too complicated for beginners with their differently colored right shoulder pads and loads of equipment options.

Legendary Master of the Chapter





why would death watch make any more or less sense then any other chapter. the DW are hardly the only chapter to have fought Necrons.

heck last time we got a big Marines vs Necrons incident it was Ultramarines vs Necrons.

I'd prefer to see a vanilla chapter so that GW doesn't give a buncha sculpted shoulderpads etc that are a pain to convert. that said of the big name chapters, I think Blood Angels are due something. I'm operating from memory here but since 6th edition started (which is arbitary I agree) we've seen the following sets

2 Ultramarines (Dark Imperium and it's varients and one of the vigilius sets)
2 Space Wolves
2 Death Watch
1 Dark Angels (Dark Vengence)
1 Blood Angels. (they got something vs 'nids yeah?)

So yeah both blood angels and dark angels are proably due something.


Opinions are not facts please don't confuse the two

That and they usually make the starter set generic. Sure, they may be painted as ultramarines, but they don't have any actually chapter specific iconography.
