At this point I think it is safe to assume that the big rumour leak a few weeks ago is going to be 99% true. (The remaining 1% is the conversion mistaken for a BT Ancient)

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.


Could see a little audio teaser that Tau are next but nothing more

As we would have finished the current roadmap after Custodes/GSC I could see them showing a new one together with the Darkstrider reveal for some kind of new years event wouldn't expect anything until then.
Would be funny at least as Shadowsun was also shown off at the new year event 2020

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!


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

It's called The Exodite because it involves the Exodites. GW said they're keeping their design under wraps and only showing Tau that are also in the animation precisely because they haven't been depicted for a very long time.

It was nice of him to put the pic in the thumbnail so as to not clickbait anyone into watching any of the nine minutes who didn't want to.

You have to know that grainy picture is all that's available for that to work, I clicked in case there was a better one in the video or something. It's fine, just a throwaway remark.

In Valrak’s defence, he doesn’t really do clickbait.

But in a world with Spikybits, your suspicions are well routed in fact and experience.

Making a video - a 9 minute video no less - for one grainy photo is to me the definition of clickbait. You're incentivized to watch it because "look how long it is, there must be more than that one grainy picture, maybe he even has some leaked rules", but theres no reason for any of it. He could have just posted the photo on reddit or dakka or bolter and chainsword or his own website/blog, etc. but that wouldn't get him youtube revenue, would it?

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.

I'm actually going to walk back what I said.

Those pictures are in the BRB on pages 38+39.
11 is, additionally, the sacred number of another Ruinous Power...Malice.

Valrak is absolute clickbait. He waffles on to get into the time frame that he can ad revenue. Most of the time, every 5 rumour/reveal video's could be combined and still only need 5 minutes of video in terms of what is actually practical/relevant in terms of information.

Youtube video's are absolutely not time efficient ways to get your rumour fixes.

His lore related video's are even more of a shitshow as well... Mainly because his lore knowledge on a whole is poor.

I have to admit- I really like the look of that Custodes model. (I'm a fan of the 'Cavalry' (Jet Bike) armor in general.

GaroRobe linked an old WarCom article that has better pictures of the hard to see cards and 9 definately has the Tzeench symbol with 8 depicting Khorne

He did this Mikhael's Rumor about Horus Heresy Black Books and new Classic Marines in True Scale after Faeit posted the same stuff as "a very trustable insider source".

Really hope they have a new Warcry monster to go nuts over. Maybe a giant spider?

Additionally, 12 is a number held sacred by the Word Bearers and rumors point to a whole heap of cultist units.

Do we know why the Word Bearers hold 12 sacred?

Genuinely don't know about it.

I don't think they ever clarified it, honestly. Just one of those things they decided on for the Index Astartes.

Thanks to the following article we have more angles on the limited vampire including some back detail and, in my opinion, a nicer color scheme than the official one.
