Agreed its strongly necron, with that "digitization" effect. Looks vaguely like a kopesh hilt, so I'd agree with the sword as well. .

Interesting that they have something lined up, given they had their big update already and are still the starter set "enemy" faction. Maybe its for a necron kill team for the next warzone set? Or as part of a mid edition update for necrons a la psychic awakening? I hope not the latter.

I don't think that's a hilt, it's probably the bottom of a staff resting on the floor.

Probably some named Overlord.

I didn't really think Necron's would be getting anything else any time soon, but yeah, that's pretty obviously Necron. Maybe converting another character to plastic? But I dunno for what book - I can't see them getting another big appearance in a campaign book, they've already had one. Maybe Kill Team? I didn't think they'd be up imminently for that either tbh.

Joking aside, while I also believe it is a Necron thing, I wouldn’t be surprised if its related to anything Eldar. For some reason, my first thought was Kyganil with this.

And totally not just because people keep converting the Void Dragon model into Nightbringers and Deceivers.

Harlequin do also have that squary effect on some of their characters.

Wonder if it would be a model release for Oltyx, to be released with the 2nd book that we have confirmed already?

It is not the usual Harlequin tile effect. That consists strictly of squares. Tetris pieces, continuous areas and square holes are not harlequinesque, but match the Necron technomancer design language.
The top and bottom of the joint may be construed as Aeldari, but the middle again is decidely Necron.

Given that the article says something about "divining cryptic messages", I'm going with a new Orikan the Diviner model.

Energy effect makes sense given the lore for his empowered mode too.

The Indomitus Overlord is basically Oltyx.

The weapon design is definitely Necron. The pixel effect feels more Cryptek than C'tan though (plus neither of the C'tan has Necron weapons)

So either another named Cryptek, or possible a new Necron Kill Team leader, I'd say.

Do we have all the 5th edition Crypteks back now or are we still missing one of them? If so could be that. The shaft looks too delicate to be c'tan-sized.

That's my bet, too. It'd be a nice two character kit with an empowered version of himself.

To add to this it looks like the seperated part of the blade is supposed to represent orikans staff moving at a different time than the present.

Its sick honestly, I find the crypteks more interesting than the overlords.

Looks like there was meant to be some new scenery out this year...pulling this from Warboss Kurgan.


Neeeeeeeeeeever mind. But it looks like we got a bit of a tease that this bird is still around:

Dunno, those trees don't look plastic to me. If that's the same bird, I'd sooner guess it was put there from an unreleased model as part of a scratch-built tree.
