Drukhari scum were not given a word on awesome Eldar lore.

And Thorpe also had Avatar of Khaine infested with genestealer. Yeah great writer.


That avatar patriarch thing was a true abomination, just not in the way the writer intended.
But at least it fits with a long standing tradition of "Worfing" the Avatar.
Need to show how badass a Space Marine is? Have him punch an Avatar.
Need to show how dire the situation is on a Craftworld overrun by Nids and left to the ravages of Slaanesh Daemons? Have a Keeper of Secrets possess an Avatar.
Need to show players how ridiculous the existing model is? FW creates an awesome sculpt showing what an Avatar should look like

That's what I thought at first, but apparently the Custodes symbol is supposed to be this :



Maybe it does mean Talons of the Emperor.

World Eaters have a strategem for denying Witches without any witches of their own, and have the Brass Collar of Borghaster, which has to be one of the better anti-psycker doodads, just from its description alone (although the increased odds of Perils is cool too).

Inquisition, you say? Nah, never heard of them.

It's a real shame GW doesn't give Arbites a second look. We have Genestealer Cults now and there been an upsurge in Traitor Guard and Cultists in plastic lately. You'd think Arbites would be a good match for an opposing force.

Then again, we have our third Rogue Trader now and they're not getting anything akin to a real army list.

Sometimes I wonder if anybody at GW even sees these opportunities...

The Eagle with its wings up is the new emblem for the Custodes, has been since their release in model form. My guess is their add on for the Psychic Awakening campaigns will be them getting the SoS rolled in, and becoming the Talons.

Probably closer to its pre-order date. Also remember that 'Psychic Awakening' is a series of books, of which 'Phoenix Rising' is just the first.

They are basically the last ones in 40K at present. Which is not to say that there isn't room to still update/remove finecast and to add new models or update old plastics in other ranges; but that Craftworlders are very much the last. I hope that they get a good slew of releases to update their aspect warrior lines and add a few more neat things to the range. Give them a proper series of updates and new sculpts to really get them back on track.


Maybee we get a bunch of mortal heretics?

Honestly, I'm expecting them to announce this Sunday that it will be up for pre-order on the 21st. October and November look to be busy months with two essentially new armies being released (the Ossiarch Bonereapers in October and the Adepta Sororitas in November). It's possible they could fit them in somewhere with those releases or wait until December, but I feel a release on September 28th is most likely.

Right behind you.

Beastgrave is the 21st.

We don't know exactly what is coming for Sisters of Battle(it might just be the codex and a pretty hefty stock of the army box) in November, but we're getting close to running out of time for what we know they want to get out this year.

We have Mawtribes that got teased at the AoS Open Day, Free Cities, Orruks, and Bonereapers--that's pretty packed for AoS.
We have Beastgrave on the 21st(the preorder date for the novel has been known since it went up on the "Coming Soon" section), if the novel's date is anything to go by. We don't know if it comes with any other warbands right off the bat but it might.

We know Sisters for 40k, the supplements for Marines, and Phoenix Rising...but Phoenix Rising(and Psychic Awakening at large) might actually be a way to lighten the load for revamped codices next year or in 2021.

GW still has specialist game stuff such as Beastgrave, Lizardman Blood Bowl team and AT Knights pending. There's a Beastgrave novel confirmed for the 21st, so this Sunday's preorder could well be all that stuff.

I reckon Psychic Awakening is a bit further out, and we'll see a few weeks of previews before any release.

I think if anything's coming with Beastgrave, it's likely to be the Free Cities and Orruk Wartribes books--we know they aren't getting scenery, Endless Spells, or models with them.

I find it rather funny that people don't remember Yvraine reconstituting the bodies of a number of Thousand Sons during Gathering Storm. Doesn't take a long stretch to have the Ynnari reforming the bodies of Exarchs that were subsumed into their armor, assuming this still a thing.

Honestly, the sheer number of ongoing projects GW tries to support is frustrating. The air game should have been left for Xmas, did we really need another specialist game right now? New Kill Team, new Blackstone Fortress expansion, new Beastgrave expansion, Warcry expansion (ha, haven't even finished building my warband yet). Then we have new AOS faction coming, new Sisters....oh and let's try to finish up these marines, plus the 2 new supplements. But wait, how about this new campaign....
