That's so much better than expected.

Wonder if one of the secret options is related to new warp spider or swooping hawk kits, so aren't being shown yet.


I'm guessing the secret options are plastic Yriel parts.

So, just to be clear, the entire 'Advent Engine' is solved now.

December 7th and 12th aren't shown (the probably deathspinner and chainsword), but the chainsword is specifically mentioned and a 4th ranged option for the autarch is mentioned but not shown.

For now we're back at square zero, but hopefully there will be a lot more to these codex launches. Once we eventually get past GSC, Custodes and Tau occupying 'early 2022.'

Hardly "square zero":

The December advent rumours predicted the exact contents of the boxed set down to specific details on the Autarch, so I'd say it's pretty likely everything else is broadly accurate. FWIW that rumour set also said we'd get new:

Warp spiders
Shining Spears
Swooping hawks & Baharroth
Guardians
Corsairs
Avatar

Plus other unspecified models


If we see Corsairs in the next KT set then that basically confirms those rumours. Plus GW will probably show something on Jan 1st again.

In terms of rumor engine pics. Everything GW has been showing off is completely wrapped up.

I think in the top left hand bit of the image we’re seeing a spiked, possibly bladed tip.

Going out on a limb? Mid level character for Daughters of Khaine is my guess. Someone fighty to support the Witch Elves and Sisters of Slaughter.

Hmm. Daughters of Khaine seem to have braided whips while DEldar have those weird energy tentacle whips. Think I'm in camp Chaos Marauders re: this one. Or yeah, Neromunda or something for WarCry?

There's a yet unknown Kill Team in the box vs Corsairs, right?

Actually it says two new kill teams in the article. Maybe (though unlikely) the Squats team

Not necessarily the "next" one, but one of them yes.

FWIW these are the factions that received rules in the last Vigilus / Nachmund books:

Marines
IG
AdMech
Aeldari
GSC
Orks
CSM
Chaos Daemons

I'd expect the Q1 and Q2 Kill Team sets to come from that list. With how recent rumours have turned out it's pretty much a given that one of those will contain Chaos cultists and/or traitor guardsmen.

Gathering the Informations.

If I were a betting man, given that it says the set will contain "new Kill Teams"? I'd look at it from that perspective.

Guard have received the Veteran Guardsman Kill Team list via Octarius. Tau got the Pathfinder KT via Chalnath. Orks got the Kommando list via Octarius. Sisters got the Novitiate list via Chalnath.

AdMech got Skitarii via WD and GSC have a WD KT...so I'd narrow it down from that setup. An Aeldari Corsair KT variant list could show up here, fighting a Necron KT.

Because the Necrons were present in Nachmund as well; a big plot hook for the original KT stuff set in Vigilus was the blackstone deposits that Stygies VIII was suuuuuuuuuper interested in.

We’ve also seen a Phase Sword thing in the Rumour Engine, so something Necron is in the pipe line.

There was a very Necron rumour engine pic recently. I was expecting it to be an event character model for store anniversaries / WH+ / etc, but it could also be some kind of Kill Team model or upgrade sprue too.

The rumour mill also says we're getting "multiple" guard regiments in plastic, so I'm expecting those to feature heavily in KT. Perhaps Kasrkin make an appearance during Nachmund followed by Catachans in the next season.

Pariah Nexus came out not even one year ago, maybe too soon for KT Necrons, again? (But that's also me having zero interest in Necrons, :p )

The new season book apparently has some inquisitor with a flaming sword on the back cover. If you look close enough, it appears he has the "I" branded pistol from several rumor engines ago
