There will be another preview at Adepticon in March so this will probably only cover the next couple of months.
I think we'll see more Eldar stuff including the Avatar, more Chaos Marines, the next Underworlds warband, something for one or two of the specialist games, the next books for AoS and maybe a teaser for The Horus box.

Rumours are saying that AoS isn't getting much until the summer. Spring is all 40k.

Based on current rumours the release schedule looks something like this:

  • 40k Eldar & Kill Team set in Feb/March
  • 40k Chaos Knights in March (probably alongside just a codex for IK)
  • 40k CSM in April / May. One reliable source claimed World Eaters were not in that book
  • Big Heresy reboot in early summer
  • 40k Space marines boxed set in the summer with new units, alongside updated codex and/or supplements


  • As the timeline has now reached the Siege of Terra there's a theory is that World Eaters will have a crossover with HH / 40k, with a plastic Daemon Angron being released to push both games. Doubt we'll see any confirmation on WE until Adepticon at the soonest. LVO will probably only cover releases up until Easter at best.

    What makes you think a new Harli is coming?


    I think it was mentioned in the Eldar advent leak thing, but I’ve lost track of how solid that rumour is at this point. I also think it said it isn’t in the codex though so I wouldn’t be expecting it yet if it is true.


    Yeah it came from the dude leaking the codex pics recently. Apparently Harlequins are getting a Mime unit for Kill Team but not until some time after the codex, just like that new Sisters unit. Could be late 2022 or 2023. Same guy also said there's a follow up wave of new models for Aeldari in 2023.

    That would be great. I want them to make a plastic Khemri team already.

    Could genuinely be any of those 4 teams, Tomb Kings or High Elves up next. On one hand it's weird that the latter haven't had a new version yet as they're a 'core' race but then they've also never been that popular. Chaos Dwarfs in all their stacked-hat glory would probably be a crowd pleaser if the models aren't rubbish, though Vampires are arguably the most in need of a bit of attention given their Teams of Legend version has issues.

    Personally wouldn't be surprised at any of the outstanding teams without a 2016/2020 kit getting done next but I think it's also nailed on that Slaanesh and Tzeentch will have their own rosters at some point too (I reckon we'll get Slaanesh this year).

    I really want to see anything new for Necromunda, Bloodbowl, Quest, or AoS Chorfs (which would be a full range buy for me). This preview is long overdue - hopefully it has some substance.

    But I was looking over the Teams of Legend sheet last night, and wondered if *perhaps* the Khorne team might be intended as a replacement for the Norse. Conceivably, that could also mean Amazons and High Elves might be replaced with, say, Slaanesh and Tzeentch teams respectively. Filling that play style with assets tied to current ranges.

  • I'm curious when the sneak peek Nid model[s] will arrive- doesn't seem to be much room in the schedule and it was one thing I was very surprised by in the New Year leak video.
    Not expecting too much beyond the Eldar to be revealed at the preview but some more Nid hints would be great.

    Lets just hope its actually a Tyranid and not "Tyranid corpse/bits on marine" type of model. I recall when GW showed off some lizard scales and all the seraphon/lizardmen players got excited only to discover that it was a bit of skin on a huge marine character.

    Are we expecting more than just the Parasite for Nids? It's probably going to be a fairly big model, but Ghaz was huge and still released in a Versus box.

    I'm expecting whatever that thing is to also make the Red Terror as an option, from the vaguely images we've seen it seems to be a similar body shape, just with wings

    I really don't expect a paired kit with the Red Terror at all.
    Right now I'm thinking its either a character model of the Parasite of Morteux or its the Shrikes which will give it a mostly Warrior type appearance with, likely, a more serpentine end to its body. Perhaps more like a ravener

    I'm not expecting anything for Nids until the current season winds down. Fluffwise there are no hive fleets around Vigilus / Nachmund, and it seems this will be focused on heavily on Eldar followed by Chaos content. Most likely Nids are being held back because they get new models with future Kill Team releases, and will show up as a bad guy in the Q3/Q4 season.

    One of the Reddit guys posting details about the Tau & Eldar codexes said the nid model is Parasite of Mortrex.

    I very much doubt that's the case (and hopefully I'm right but not ruling it out entirely that they wouldn't do something that daft). I think the Khorne team was more a replacement for... well... the Khorne team i.e. the one which wasn't an 'official' GW team but had been very much present since they appeared in the Blood Bowl 1 video game version and had long been adopted as an 'official' team by the NAF (along with Bretonnians from BB2 and Slaan).

    The Bretonnians have since been directly replaced by the GW Imperial Nobles team (with about 80% of the same roster) and the Khorne Team has retained a lot of the core ideas/rules but in lore terms had its Daemons replaced with mortal players. If the Leap meme team that is Slaan is going to get a direct GW equivalent and what form that might take (Squig Hoppers?!), who knows?

    There's not really such a thing as being 'tied to current ranges' when it comes to Blood Bowl given the setting/miniature range it is a pastiche of no longer exists (or at least it won't until The Old World is released) so I don't think that's likely to be a reasoning for replacing long standing things like High Elves. As much as the Blood Bowl devs have made some changes that don't necessarily always go down that well, they haven't dramatically altered the game and, based on previous discussion on live streams etc., are more than aware of the popularity of Norse and Chaos Dwarfs in particular so can't see those 2 getting replaced at least.

    So, I'd imagine -

    40k

    The rest of the Eldar, including the Avatar, Shining Spears, Warlocks, Maugen Ra and some other bits. Maybe some Chaos Knights.

    Kill Team

    The Warzone: Nachmund box set

    Necromunda

    Nothing obvious. Ash wastes? Ratskins? Genestealers?

    Horus Heresy

    The big boxed game I guess

    AoS

    Maybe just another Battletome or two for a faction that's not getting much model wise. Idoneth or Nighthaunt?

    Idoneth and Fyreslayers. They just got a dual box with one new kit each. I surmise we'll see a reveal of their books and maybe some endless spells for Idoneth.

    There are still a number of unreleased units for HH, as well as the possibility for new legion praetors, given that they've been trickling those out.

    I don't think we will see the boxed game yet. It feels too early.

    They'll likely keep some Eldar back for a few more weeks of Monday previews, but we'll likely get official confirmation of the codex, Avatar, and maybe some other models. Chaos Knights seem likely too.

    We might see a teaser. They could confirm that a new edition is coming but save the full boxed set reveal for Adepticon.

    If they showed all of that, it would be the single largest and most comprehensive preview that GW has ever done, at best you're probably only going to get about half that many reveals.

    Realistically you're getting:

    -Eldar full preview
    -CSM full preview
    -Kill Team Reveal (Eldar v Imperium or Chaos, forget what the rumor was)
    -Idoneth and Fyreslayers Battletom Reveal
    -Imperial and Chaos Knights Reveal
    -Big Horus Heresy Reveal (hopefully)
    -Something for Necromunda, whatever that might be

    I would be surprised if we got much more than that.
