If I'm going to be hypercritical:
The Sister of Silence is a fantastic model. Yeah, she's not doing the 'on guard!' pose from the cover...but she's doing something that I feel works great. She looks like an executioner, waiting for the moment when the 'guilty' pronouncement is made.

The Custodes, for me, is just not great. He looks tiny compared to the cover art--and it's not helped by the fact that he's standing 'at attention' like she is. Also...that face.

Hmm. I don't see a mention of the collector's edition of The First Wall being available yet. Do we know if that's because it's going up for pre-order next weekend and therefore too soon to waste the space on the Weekender reveals?

Ughhh such a cock up

They could have reproduced the cover maybe with a base that fitted both - would hagve been great.

How disappointing. At a glance there's pretty much nothing separating them from a standard Custard Cream/Sister of Silence except they're posed differently.

I have been enjoying them - interested also to see what they do with E Stern.....

Just noticed that Dante Deluxe Edition was mentioned as forthcoming, so I assume that'll coincide with The First Wall. At least, I hope so.

EDIT: Meant to edit, not quote. D'oh!

Darn it GW just put Sisters of Silence into Custodes already!

Have to say I like the Sister of Silence model! The Custodes has rather flat painting on the face (which might also be the result of the photography light used as well making it appear worse than in reality). Though I have to agree he's not as big as he is in the art.



Warhammer Crime makes perfect sense especially since there is that TV Series being made which also focuses on the crime side of things; a tandem product setup like that is something GW has oft done and is a good way to build one against the other.

I'll be interested to see what is in Oaths and Conquests for AoS. I'm guessing most of the current short stories for AoS that aren't in a collection will appear, though I hope its got some unique stories to it (and less of those darn repeats GW )

Huh, not what I was expecting modelwise, but congrats to mr. Wraight for joining the ranks of authors whose characters get turned into models. Would've been better if the Sister made an obscene hand gesture.

The Warhammer Crime announcement is an interesting one, looking forward to seeing this unfold, as the Warhammer Horror line thus far has been pretty solid.

Only thing missing is the exact date of the BL Celebration 2020, unless I missed it.

Be ash and cinder forevermore!

Bummed that neither of em were Cain, but I'm not complaining since they're Custodes(can't have too many options). Methinks they will probably chose those two to make up for Raine thoug...

His head is clownishly big, 4 heads to body is proportions of 3 year old. I thought they can't top Kidbaddon, but they just did

I really hope he comes with a helmet. Pretty please?

Sister is nice, but it's the pose you can build from box already, and why she replaced half of her armour with gimp suit?

Ye Gods! That Valerian is bad.

He looks like a kitbash with an oversized head bolted on.

Aleya is unoffensively ok, but I'm not a fan of the fact that she lacks the over-the-shoulder furs like Krole.

I’m excited SoS are getting an HQ, I’ll happily use her as a generic HQ in 30k. Hopefully they’re purchased separately, because the less said about that Custodes, the better.

So in the video GW put up about the new models, Battistotti says of Valerian that, 'he's a new blood, a new recruit'; and describes Aleya as, 'more of a character linked to the old order'.

That's totally ass backwards. At the beginning of Watchers of the Throne: The Emperor's Legion, Valerian is already a Shield Captain, while Aleya doesn't join up with other Imperial forces until about half way through the book.

Yeah he was talking nonsense - its a pity they did not just give him the book cover and say - "make this"

And she was pretty green as well.

Basically they got the roles backwards there. Shame really.

Just a point but the new AoS book isn't by J. Reynolds - he confirmed over on TGA that its by Clint Werner.


Sounds a little like GW needs to get their community materials team a bit more instruction in GW/BL publications

I hope we finally learn who “Alpharius” is (other then Alpharius, of course) - he is someone quite recognizable, after all...

Yeah and I still don't like that point of the previous novel, it felt so shoe horned in.
