Dwarfs are the closest WHFB/AoS usually gets; they can dispel/deny like wizards but can't cast spells themselves.

Everyone keeps assuming spells.

What if this is actually:

Teaser for an Eldar Model Update
Teaser for a Returned Emperor with new models representing the gods of Chaos and the Emperor as new Lords of War (Apoc did say every faction would get a new lord of war, nothing more LoW than an actual model of Khorne)
A book full of dozens upon dozens of Psychic powers.
A redone Psychic System.

Does it have to be AoS endless spells? Nope. Let's wait and see.

Beastclaw Raiders do not have anything. They have to ally in something that can cast/deny.

I see them doing the same for 40k only worse. I can still see Tau, Necrons, Admech etc not get an actual endless spell..................since when has GW ever nailed something like out of the gates in their history?

I'd rather get the non psychic factions get a different kind of mechanic than just porting it over and have it be "not" psychic powers. That said I'd be fine with Tau getting some kind of pysker auxiliary and I have never understood why necrons don't have a boat load of psychic defense, their whole thing is trying to cut the warp off permanently.

"Please gods no" to the first, and a firm but polite 'no' to the second.

Bringing Emps back would be a shitfest. It was chaos when Guilliman was released! And the GODS of Chaos? I'm not even sure that would work.

Extremely unlikely to be anything but Endless Spells, or possible Astra Telepathica/SoS update considering the teaser we got. It might even include a redone psychic system.

A while ago in May I asked how people would react to endless psychic powers in 40k and ultimately they have said 66% negative to 34% positive, as seen here: https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/775594.page


How do you know that they are going to get endless psychic powers? All we know is that there is something involving psykers, which may also result in non-psychic armies finally getting to do something in the psychic phase, because if there are suddenly a bunch of psykers popping up everywhere, why wouldn't you develop proper counter measures?


That sounds hateful tbh. Like we need to add another 45 freakin minutes to every game just so the Thousands sons player can feel super 1337 haxorz about how much psychic stuff he can do compared to your handful of 'anti-psyker' things you brought just in case.

Please for the love of god can endless spells stay in Aos. I am not buying models for my damn psychic powers. Next we'll have the fething terrain pieces that cost 40 quid a pop and are an auto include for every army. Anything to gouge us further.


So long as there's a trade off with points like in Sigmar it really shouldn't be a problem. It should be a valid choice to not use them, but they'd be there for people who like it.

I'm kind of neutral on them personally, but think it's very likely they will be added to 40k in some form.


Terrain pieces, for the record, are free for their respective forces so they're almost always mandatory.

Sounds interesting. Hopefully we’ll get at least a plastic Weirdboy (maybe even a separate Warphead), and they bring Pariahs back (wielding Noctilith staves, perhaps).

Psychic Knights?

Should be a great opportunity to update the GK codex too to make them playable.

yeah if this is something involving psykers I would like to see them put out some plastic psykers for those whose psyker models are still finecast. A new Chaos Sorc (come to think of it wasn't there a chaos sorc backback that never materlized?) a new Ork Weirdboy. a space wolf Primaris runepreist etc

There is this rumor about the launch of a TV series on Netflix about Eisenhorn. Marketing wise would make some kind of sense to provide a playable faction for the Inquisition. or at least somehow the option to bring an Inquisitor in any imperium army without having to use another detachment.

Mixed feelings on this.
I actually really liked the 2nd ed psychic phase with its templates and markers and stuff but would be worried this is that x100 with spells littered all over the board and the phase now taking an inordinate amount of time to complete.

In addition as I've said before, it may also push the HTH phase even further down the food chain =/

I don't suppose it could be something to do with ynarri? There's a lot of awakening type language around the eldar generally and ynnead in particular.
Endless spells seems a safer shout but maybe the eldar will finally get some love?

If getting new models for cwe eldar means getting zombiefied i mean ynarrified i would rather wait another 15 years for new sculpts.

Eldar are already psychicly awake so.... lets hope not.

I'd guess ynarri will go into their own faction but can still ally in the other space elves.
Making more of a wraith and wraithbone, style faction would make sense and fit the fluff and capture the dying race theme of the aeldari as a whole.
Hopefully I'm wrong but I get the feeling cwe may join old marines on the scrapheap.

T'au are not blanks.

The closest thing to a "Blanks" faction in 40k is Necrons. Everything else is warp-present, albeit to varying degrees. Even T'au - although they are hinted at being the "Incorruptable Swarm".
