Just got my Feb White Dwarf through post this morning and firs thing was to look on edge of the WD magazine...

So if you join Jan Feb WD together, then some picture is drawing up. I recon chaos space marine or templar?

What you think?
I never seen anything like this on WD so is probably preparing us to something big!

Actually, I think it might be a DA. You can see the robes around his legs.

I agree entirely.

heeh good one, but does not work :(

Now, ask your self a question, why would GW did that ? Without reason generating this extra cost of print/drawing ?

Dont thinks so, is just pure marketing. As WD is only based on this strategy, is something new on horison.

I agree that it's probably DA, as it is going to be a few more issues before the picture is completed, and by that time the DA codex should be ready.

Heck, didn't even notice that. Immediately put my WDs together to check that it out.

I don't know if it's Dark Angels actually, if you look close above the pauldron, you see a skull, which could be from a chaos backpack.

Id be inclined to say chaos as well. Would make sense, since chaos is heavily rumored to be early in the next edition, possibly in the main box set.

Good find!

Also looks like Chaos to me. That right pauldron is coarse and raised. Also, it looks like you can get a glimpse of the marine's head or skull-backpack. And robes could mean anything. We could see more robed Chaos figures, I'm sure.

With there being skulls under their feet, I am wondering if the "skull" above the shoulder is part of a backdrop/background.

Is this GWs attempt at viral marketing

It may well be a Dark Angel, but I suspect it's a cunning hint for 6th Ed.

I would say probably not chaos to my eye, straight edge pauldron rim, robes, general lack of spikey...

Not sure DA or BT, but would be bloody shocked if it was anything else... just imo though.

Not to be a jerk, but I'd suggest you take a peek at the Dark Angels sprues.

One of the backpacks actually has a skull in lieu of the vents

The cabling as well might point towards something else, but when you look at most GW artwork there's a lot of stuff which doesn't appear on the actual models.

To me it looks more like a Dark Angel than anything else. All of the visible armour is smooth except for the shoulder pad detailing - Chaos marines typically have raised edges on the amour forming obvious 'points' mirroring the shape of the points on a Chaos star.

Coupled with the dark green colouring and the lighter shade of the robes, DA gets my vote.


Either way, given that rumour has DA vs Chaos as the 6th ed box game, both would be plausible and it would be an intruiging (if subtle) confirmation...

While you sleep, they'll be waiting...

All the cabling and the style of shoulder pad puts me in the mind of an Iron Warrior. Though if it wasn't for the cabling and the metal arm look I'd agree with Dark Angel.

Ah, true I guess. Although the skull in the picture has a spike on its forehead, which makes it more chaosy. There's also something above the skull, perhaps the actual exhaust vent. On the other hand, chaos exhausts usually stick out further.

I guess we'll have to wait for the March issue, or until someone finds the original artwork.

Either Chaos or DA related, though the robe seems to lean more towards DA...

Right behind you.

It's not really a "spike on its forehead" from the looks of it Redemption. If you look, it appears to be a kind of "band" of spikes.

Take a peek at the cover of the Dark Angels codex or Azrael the Chapter Master. They both have something similar going on, albeit the skull is turned to the side.

Something to keep in mind though is that the Dark Angels have always had a more "Chaotic" appearance in their artwork. Part of it is because of their description of utilizing a lot of older Marks of armor, reflecting their "First Legion" status.

This hinting does make me happy though. Even if it's just something silly, at least the Unforgiven are not the Forgotten.
