As others have said, the lieutenant is a bit meh, if only due to the exact same pose as the Indomitus captain.

Oh she would look great in a really fancy mary antoinette powdered wig

No, thats totally just a really tall Chaos Dwarf.

But yeah, I'm guessing this is them finally following through on the "Darkoath" aesthetic/concept.

Couldn't they have done that with one of the previous seven chaos marauder warbands?

Ehh...maybe, maybe not.
The OG WarCry warbands were Chaos Adventuring Through the Realms, for all intents and purposes. We had the Flayed Face Gents(Shyish), Crazy Bird Folks(Ulgu), Savage Hunters(Ghur), Poisons From All the Plants For Everyone!(Ghyran), Totally Not Elves(Hysh), EVERYTHING'S ON FIRE!(Aqshy), Metal Feels Great(Chamon), and the Eightpoints Gang.

From the sounds of things, we're starting to explore a bit more Chaos-y things now.

Slaves have been in an odd position for a while now - GW updated the chaos warriors and knights but only in the getting started set. They never followed through replacing warriors, chosen and knights outside of the starter set monopose options.

Marauders similarly were kept in the army despite the old models looking super dated compared to the warcry warbands - which are honestly visually far superior.


We also saw the separate god armies starting to get more mortals - even Slaanesh now has alternative "slaanesh chaos warriors and exalted warrior" options in the army.

The previous warbands were all very explicitly not adventuring through the realms but fighting it out in the wastes in the eightpoints outside the varantower or whatever its called. Frankly, they *are* Marauders any way you slice it, even moreso if they were chaos MARAUDING through the realms.

I said Chaos was adventuring through the realms, not the warbands.
Each of those warbands hailed from those realms. They made it to the Eightpoints, to try to get elevated into the Everchosen's horde.
Each of the warbands(barring Spire Tyrants) were designed to reflect the specific realm they came from.

But what’s that in the center?

XII - 12? WORLD EATERS



Dreaming big, I like it.

12 and 8 are in the wrong places I think, which kinda draws attention to them, might be onto something.
Sorry, I have no clue what you are talking about. What teaser got any numbers? Link please

I'm still baffled that we still haven't gotten an Emperor's Tarot after all these years, even though they keep teasing us with these designs.

GW has kept Exodites lore on the books and keeps referencing them and even has a whole animation coming up called Exodites and yet haven't made a single model for them since the Rogue Trader/Titan Legion days - ergo 30 odd years ago!

Didn't they release some sort of tarot cards over the last few months?

That animation project is for Tau, not Eldar. It's call The Exodite.

11 / 8 / 7
6 / 12 / 9

6 & 7 definitely have art that ties in with Slaanesh and Nurgle - I'm not seeing it as clearly in 9 (for Tzeentch - though I guess the entity is sort of cyclopean, which could be a callback to Magnus), and we don't see the art for 8.

12 includes an Imperial cruiser, for some reason, and I guess 11 count be meant to be a tie to the Golden Throne.

Interesting art, regardless - I'm sure there are a lot of minor details I'm not picking up on there.

Yep that's the rumored Custodes Lieutenant. He looks strangely unarmoured, or is it just me?

So they're our 40k preview for the event. D'ya think there will be any more 40K beyond that?

Yeah, the Genestealers that'll go into an overpriced army box with them.

Yes, sorry, that's what I meant. I wasn't clear.

Banana Boy, new GSC, whatever units they dare to give us (probably 2 per side, but the Ghaz/Ragnar box showed us that isn't always the case), and a small campaign book.

And that's your 40k preview! Maybe a teaser for an eventual teaser at the end though, just to frustrate us further.
