Are those the beastsnagga sculpts? They don't really look like it... but they are def not boyz or nobz... right?

They look about the size of the BS boyz, so I wonder if these are from a multi-part kit with the option for shootas, rather than the fixed-pose ones we’ve seen already.

Right behind you.

The Beast Snagga box that we saw includes the full kits, from what has been said.

A lot of people latched onto it as being the same as the Sisters while ignoring that the Lumineth set was full kits rather than simplified builds.

Do recall though that what we saw was not "even half of what's to come later in the year".

Yep, those models do not match up with the current boyz kit or the beast snagga stuff already revealed.

They're new whatever they are.

Or it's an incredibly good photoshop.

I think they're new boyz. If you look at the beast snagga teaser video you'll see boyz squads with heavy weapons carried on the shoulder. You also see a meganob with a chain axe. Given how the other things in the video were exact copies of minis I expect these to be too.

Could be a new boyz kit. There looks like aspects of the old boyz kit in there, the guns look very similar. But none of the torsos look similar. The one on the far left has a rather dynamic pose by the looks of things.

If it is a new boyz kit i'll likely get at the very least one copy, have some fun with it and sprinkle the new models in an old boyz mob to kick up variety, like the handful of squigs filling out the unit and making things look unique. Unless the new kit turns out to be everything an ork could want, then my boyz horde may get at least partially updated.

Though sadly those necks don't look like ball joints, so low possibility in all likleyhood. Maybe separate shootaboyz units/kits?

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

Wonder if they will resurrect the Yoof concept with a new unit that's not as strong or tough as the baseline ork?

ie

ork boy
M5 WS3+ BS5+ S4 T5 W1 A2
ork yoof
M5 WS4+ BS5+ S3 T4 W1 A2

But perhaps sneakier, or with unique attack styles that make them good support units.

I'm kinda wondering if GW will just make the normal boyz kit just include a new sprue a la cadians....

From what we see on that picture it won't. AFAIK no current boy is as bare-chested (and as swole) as the third boy in the upper-right corner.

I can't tell from the pic yet, but I've been hoping for a dual snaga/boy kit and if anything, the three Boyz in that pic still don't contradict that.

Unless the upgrade sprue has spare body or two.

Actually, upon further reflection it'll be like the necron warrior revamp. New snaggas to go along with normie boyz.

I was just being tounge and cheek originally as my disappointment over the guard "upgrade" was still bleeding.

Well, seems like I was wrong twice.

First on the Necron Warriors and now on the Ork Boyz.

Both my main armies getting new regular Troops models. Now my old Necron warriors look fine next to the new ones, but I'm a bit more worried about my old Boyz - the new ones look bigger and more buff.

But since I'm still on 25mm bases and was planning to rebase all of them anyway, maybe it's just easier to get the new ones instead and update the paint scheme a bit... depends on the price though...

On the other hand, those might just be Snaggas with Shootas, which would save me a lot of effort...

Well now I'm looking forward to seeing new Boyz! If they are good, I'll buy at least a box or two to compliment my existing Boyz. (I have just purchased base adapters for them).

Personally I think this is highly unlikely. The one on the top right is definitely something new (bare chest), while the one on bottom right has a pose too dynamic for current boys if anything.

The one on the front is the most difficult to tell, but I think that left arm looks more buff than the boyz' current ones (the legs seem different too but I can't be sure).

It just looks that way because it's the more angled shoota arm that is cleverly hidden by the shoulder pad and well painted. The head of shoota boyz forced to look in the direction of their gun and you can see that angle on both those models.

That said, I re-watched all the videos and looked at all the pictures and there is no beast snagga boy like the one in the back - all of them are wearing shoulder pads and fur on their backs, none of them have similar gun. So I guess there still is a chance that these are new sculpts that are modeled very closely to the current models.

Anyone remember when Primaris marines were a kitbash and posters here could identify every component? Good times.

Yes those are definitely not the current Boyz. Poses are different, arms are thiccer, the hands holding the Shoota look different, naked torso etc.

The helmet on the right one looks like one of the current ones, but that's fully in line with an updated kit a la Necron Warriors.

The question is really if they are just Goff Beastsnaggas with Shootas or if they are actually updated Boyz.

Huzzah! Exactly as i wildly speculated based off the first Beast Snagga’s teaser vid!

Really hope we see the shoulder mounted heavy weapons. They looked very Rogue Trader in the vid,

I could tell by the pixels. And the procrete.

I do hold my hands up as having been a Doubting Thomas on that one though.

Beast snaggas have different boots and pants from those models.

Really glad Orks are getting new generic Boyz.
The old ones look really well old and a bit small and crap now.
