How do!

Sadly being a Luddite I can’t show the vid here.

But on GW’s social media channels, we’ve been teased with a short, soundless 40K animation, promising “Something Big Is Coming….But What?”

Vid shows some kind of commas screen, reading “incoming vessel, origin unknown, docking access denied, *error* docking access granted”.

Anyone care to speculate? Or indeed share the vid because I don’t know how to from social media.

Fair point.

So a few things it could be having seen it earlier and thought about it

1) Could be a new Warhammer+ video series or episode. Themed around Space Hulk

2) Could be a re-release or a new release of Space Hulk. Fits with all the general themes of unknown spooky ships floating around.



Space Hulk certainly fits the whole "BIG" angle as those are vast ships floating in space. Interestingly I spoke recently about the idea of seeing the next adventure release for 40K being a theme of Space Hulk. However I wouldn't think that with Cursed City only just out (evne if it hadn't vanished for half a year) its a bit soon for GW to return to 40K. That is unless they are doing away with only running one at a time and are going to run two concurrently - one for each major game system. Which they could totally do and wouldn't be a bad idea. Blackstone Fortress clearly still sells well even whilst Cursed City is on the cards so GW could easily run two new such games at the same time.

The impression I get is that it’s something forcibly docking with an Imperium ship, rather than an Imperium Ship forcibly docking with another ship, such as a Space Hulk?

Could it be a brand new Xenos, given origin is unknown?

Either that or its a Spaceship full of Squats and the "big" is a bit of a joke (i.e. in the inverse of Little John etc)

The rumoured Squats were my first thought, on the basis they might be able to dock with Imperial vessels but haven't in so long it took a bit of time for the codes to work etc, hence the denied and then granted bit.

Probably won't be anything that exciting. Watch it be for paint dropper bottles.

In all seriousness though, I can't see it being a new Battlefleet Gothic or Space Hulk rerelease, just because it feels like GW have quite a lot of boxed games coming in the next few months as it is?

It's the space bus ferrying in the first new Squats. I wouldn't let those guys on board either.

I scrubbed through the frames, and no, there is no hidden info or details. There is a slight pan and zoom towards the console along with a slight blur effect on the console when it switches from "denied" to "granted" but that's it.

Yep that's what I'm thinking, plus BoB from War of Sigmar suggested when that snippet came out a game on a squat ship might be coming.
Perfect thing to release on April fools- Squats return has always been seen as a bit of a joke..

It'd be one hell of a prank to announce a legit release on April 1st.

No it's only pc and Xbox for now. It'll be on gamepads though, which is nice.

Edit- the big thing might be a community survey. Apparently some people have got an email.

I doubt it has anything to do with the community survey. Only people I've seen mention getting it are those who attended events.

I could have swore that Darktide would be on Playstation. oh well.

I would absolutely love the return of BFG. The Siege of Terra would be an easy way to relaunch it, since they would only need to start with a small number of ship models as both sides would be using the same ships.
I still have my Imperial and Necron fleets, as well as everything I could buy during the Great Specialist Games Closeout.
Sadly, I do not expect BFG to come back soon.

Sadly it will be a new scale game like Space Hulk, only in 12mm scale so your table can be the full size of the ship. 12mm so it's Bigger than Epic/AT and can still get great detail, but small enough that your squad can fit onto a couple of bases.
