Oh look a new artwork of abaddon and the black legion in the background

Must be one of Abaddons chosen, maybe the thousand son's contingent (http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Iskandar_Khayon) or maybe that Erebus??

Some of that is art, but the claw in top-right isn't. That is definitely a photo.

Very excited about the black legion releases- what’s likely to be the next event they do a big reveal at?

GW has an events calendar on the bottom of the Warhammer Community website. Next up would proably be the Las Vegas Open on February 8-10.

The GSC are hitting it out of the ballpark on this one.

I'm kinda surprised they didn't show anything for sisters of battle. No renders, artwork, no mention of them as far as I could tell. You'd think they'd start the year off with a bang and show off at least something...since they are probably going to be the most hyped release of the year.

I'm not really surprised. It's too soon to show off much. Better to wait until they have something concrete and closer to the release date.

True, but they've been trickling out little things like renders of heads/guns etc for the past several events last year. It's just odd they skipped this open day in particular. They also said that one completed sob model would come out before the army as a teaser of sorts. No sign of that model with a paintjob even though its been a long time. But yeah all indications are they will release at the literal arse end of the year.

They were showing renders before the beta codex. Now that it's out I wouldn't expect to see much more until the actual codex is near its release date.

I was also kind of surprised we didn't get a new sisters render. But hey, LVO is at the end of the month and I'm sure they'll reveal more then. There's still MORE GSC stuff that's yet to be revealed too!

Thrilled by the Kill Team stuff. Really glad we're getting close quarters missions outside of Rogue Trader and I like the new killzone! I also predict that the GSC and Admech starters for Kill Team is how they're going to flesh out the rest into the future. Things like Harlequins and Grey Knights can make a commander out of their normal troop box, so I wouldn't be surprised to see that.

GSC stuff is just awesome. I'm going to pick up one of those female Magus models no doubt! I hope they get another 'big' unit. Currently they only have the goliath truck, but I'd love for them to get another big centerpiece kind of model.

Isn’t this a two day event or was it just today?

But on sisters, no indications needed, I’m pretty sure they said it was the other end of 2019 way back on reveal..

I thought it was a two day event as well. Wasn’t it last year when they announced the sob and on the second day when everyone was leaving?

SoB were announced at Adepticon. The new year open day last year had Custodes, Imperial Knights and the Legions of Nagash battletome announced.

At this point the amount of noise and asking online about a new abby model combined with GW actually listening now.... would say its a done deal in the next 6months to a year... prob in the second campaign book

They originally said Sisters were coming in 2019 (Emperor willing ). That's it.

Now it's easy enough to guess that meant the back end of 2019 if you take GW's traditional development period of 18-24 months and aren't desperate to deny just how clueless GW was about the genuine demand for plastic Sisters prior to doing the community survey. But as far as actual, official announcements went 2019 was as precise as GW wanted to get.

Emperor willing.

I seem to remember one of the Facebook responses mentioning October 2019 at some point.

They said October 2019 at the earliest. Which is fine since we just got the beta codex...

That's the best part of that model. She's extremely versatile for conversions. Hopefully we'll get more like that in the future.

Glad to see there is nothing that is going to urge me to buy right now (thank God after 2018), but those new GSC models are indeed amazing. Maybe later down the line I may grab some for some narrative games.

IIRC Sisters of Battle are still up for late 2019, that's about as much as they want to share as to an actual release date, playing it safe.
