Found this (the rune on his R chest is confirmed to be Crimson Hunter, and R thigh to be Swooping Hawk, and even a previously hidden Shining Spear rune on his waist belt), and less of a topknot for all you topknot haters:

I think the one on his right thigh (our left) is the Swooping Hawk one. Can't figure out what the left thigh (our right) is, and can't make out the one on the right side of his torso. The one hanging from his helmet isn't a rune.


From left to right, upper: Crimson Hunter (upside down triangle, confirmed by Spartan variant), Striking Scorpions, Fire Dragons

Damn, I absolutely love this model.

For me, original head and spear (although I like the recently leaked head option too, but not the bare one)

Not a huge fan of this spear or head option, but its cool that you have the option. A part of me was hoping that one of these alternate builds wouldn't have the flames on them and that they'd be optional, but that was a very long shot in the dark.

Well, there's the spear. I believe there's so money that needs to change hands now.

Not sure about that other helmet option. It looks pretty good, but the traditionalist in me will likely steer me towards the full monty with glorious top knot.

The image we discussed was the sword nonetheless, since the spear has a bifurcating line. But he has a spear indeed. So we were both right.

The bloody hand looks like he's about to rip the metal out of some poor imperial guard army.

The picture you were referring to was actually the sword, but yes there is a spear.

The shape of the unknown on the L thigh is suggestive of Dire Avenger.

I note they have reproduced the same runes on the sword version of the Wailing Doom as the old Avatar (as opposed to random new runes), only now the runes are negative relief rather than raised bas relief.

How does a leak like this even happen? I wonder what happens after the fact behind closed doors.

Also, those plastic flames are silly looking.

Yes, but there are two bare below the triangle, so it must be the alternative rune and not the standard rune with a single bar.

Either data mining or someone in GW decided to risk their job to take a photo of a reveal that is happening in under 24 hours. It's probably easier to find the leaks for the avatar, as we know its coming. Back in the day, a similar method was used to "predict" what GW was going to be revealing

Hmm, the more I look at it and compare to the Warp Spider...maybe it's the Spider rune.

It looks like it can be both thrust like a spear and swept like a glaive.

I'm planning on cutting off the spear head, and replacing it with the blade of the sword. I think it'll work pretty well and if I mess up, I have the axe hand as back up

I like the variant with the spear, not really sold on the head of the axe wielding Avatar.

For some reason I can’t unsee the Primaris Marines styled knee armour.
