Beta testers.... GW will have 100 selected people play test rules in advance.

I'm not being sardonic with the above, either.

They've had sales before, they used to do it quite frequently back in the day.

Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century: Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others; Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected; Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it; Refusing to set aside trivial preferences; Neglecting development and refinement of the mind; Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do

Whatever it is, I have a feeling it won't be nearly as good/cool as anyone hopes it will be. GW's hype train is like that little train at the kiddie park that goes around a small loop, and you're left wondering after you take your second lap, "Is this really it?"

Hmmmm...

Deathwatch miniatures in the boxed game are all mono-pose characters (think Space Hulk, except with normal bases). Sternguard rumors are nonsense. One is possibly the first dedicated Blood Ravens mini by GW (feel free to correct me there. My GW-history-fu is weak)?

Lots of cultists, a few pure genestealers, another new broodlord.

Multi-part kits later this year.

Awesome, thanks for providing more info, Sad Panda! By cultists you mean hybrids? Humanoids with 2-4 arms and weapons? Or rebellious humans like the Dark Vengeance Cultists?

So...monopose and multi-part later. Best of both worlds. I like the monopose plastics. They make the best conversion fodder, because they have interesting poses that extend beyond what multi-parts can do. Exciting news, thanks SP.

I believe the super-duper special edition of Dawn of War 2 came with an exclusive Blood Raven model, but still. WOW.

Also... may the Wulfen be an indication that Genestealers/Broodlords are going to get a beefy close-combat upgrade. Assault from Deepstrike would be my dream-come-true.

Huh. Guess I better keep building my GCult warchest, then. It's really happening. Not like I need any more GCult minis, but of course I have to have the NEW ones.


I agree with some others that "GW100" smells like some kind of retailing thing than a new product.

All I am hoping is that it is not as craptastic as I fear that it may be.

That's great to hear. Do you know if the cultists are also monopose, or if they are multiparts ?

I guess at this point we are all just tossing around speculation.

I would like to see them reduce the start boxes down to $100 again. While the quality of the contents has continued to go up, so too has the price.

We also know now that the three images have provided us 40k AoS and a generic skull. I fear that this will be something stupid like a Grand Opening celebration. as mentioned elsewhere online.

Beyond speculation, what else do we have?

And did both of the GW stores that leaked these pictures take down their FB posts?

Hnnng. Monopose Deathwatch are of no interest to me as I go all-artscale these days, but actual proper genuine Cult models? Hot-diggity-dayum

Hmm, maybe I can eBay-gouge some suckers with the Marines so the box doesn't cost me as much.

Cheers man!

Right, so,

- it isn't Deathwatch
- it can't be an army release, as its "never to be repeated"
- it can't be money related, because currencies, it could be model number related
- it's not system related if the different artwork used is to be believed
- there's still a rumour about "something big" that staff were apparently called in for training from last year that's yet to bear fruit
- it may be time related (100 days)
