We got front row seats for the seminar for upcoming Games Workshop releases! Here's what we found out -

1. Space Wolves and Ork Codexes are up next.

2. Genestealer Cults Codex yet to be announced but new models are inbound

3. Expect to see previous of Age of Sigmar's new Night Haunt on Warhammer Community in the coming days.

4. We saw the new models for Necromunda's House Cawdor, they look vicious!

5. Middle-Earth is getting a kick up the butt with the release of a new Pelennor Fields release boosting the game into larger scale warfare once more

6. Card packs are incoming for Shadespire. The first batch being focused on giving leaders cool things to do

7. Kill Team news seems to be mere weeks away.


More genestealer cults models!!!! must have, please be a limo, etc

no mention of Ork models, hope that's not a sign they they're going to be book only as I fear that would end up with a lot of the finecast characters going missing

Community article. I must say I am absolutely baffled by the decision to not show the aos starter set yet.

I'm loving those Cawdor models. I might get some and do them up as a ragtag militia for 40k.

Absolutely loving the Cawdor! Just hope they come with optional hoods, or I'll be a-huntin' for such elsewhere.

Well I was in the second row and can expand on some of those more

For the orks, they wouldn’t confirm what new models, but did say that, following the tend of all the recent coded releases there will be models to go with the orks and that they would no longer be an awful army.

There were a few questions about kill team. They said there would be an awful lot to say about t on the community site in ohhh 2-3 weeks *nudgenudgewinkwink* and that the rogue trader stuff we have seen will be a part of the kill team thin. Sounds like kill team may be something g larger than just one book or one box... we shall find out soon though!

For the cult, they did seem a bit sad that they couldn’t talk about the book yet, but seemed to say that the aberrations may be outt before the book and that there was more to come for them.

For the night haunt next reveal, they said Tuesday would be a good day to watch the commmunity site and that AoS 2 could drop any day now, getting gem that it was June today.

Hopefully they are right about orks not being awful but then again marketing speech so not that trustworthy

The new Aberrant also appears to have some sort of tail - I can't remember what type of tail that is - is it one of the Carnifex tails (though a smaller version).

Here's my thought on what this new Aberrant is holding:
It's a close combat weapon for a much cheaper points cost. It might have a few minor bonuses and weaknesses (e.g. +1 Strength, -1 to hit with the weapon), but it'll act as a cheaper alternative to the Power Pick and Power Hammer. So if a Pick Aberrant is ~27 points, a Hammer Aberrant is ~33 points, and an "improvised weapon" Aberrant could be ~17 points (a 0 point upgrade perhaps).

With Orks and SW being next, does that mean that one will be out before the other or will it be a joint release?

No reason to think previous pattern changes. Separate. Gw doesn't want them to steal attention from each other

I've seen people saying that, according to GW at the seminar, the releases are in this order - can someone verify?

  • One of [Space Wolves/Orks]

  • The other one of [Space Wolves/Orks]

  • Completely new 40k faction (apparently they said this, I've not heard any verification yet).

  • Genestealer Cults

  • Sisters of Battle

    Looks similar to the Genestealer Patriarch's tail to me.

    Genestealer Cult getting Aberrants was expected. The ones from Deathwatch Overkill were part of a combined sprue, so GW needed a separate product.

    If GW retcons the Screamer Killer as a monstrous unit for GSC I'll be overjoyed.

    The new faction is probably Rogue Traders.

  • Since sob are coming 2019 there's bound to be other codexes before them

  • Good. That would fit with what we know so far : Space Wolves (August) / Orks (Septmber)

    Before those two, in July, Kill Team, and after, in Autumn, Rogue Trader.

    The completely new faction is either Emperor's Children or Wolrd Eaters.

    Agreed. Orks being viable would be great, but it isn't wise to take anything GW says at face value, especially considering their track record.

  • There was no mention of Sisters, or any other factions, SW, orks and cult were the only three. They just didn’t want to talk cult at the moment. We were definitely SW first, closely followed by orks

    Can’t remember the exact wording but they did admit it was a pretty bad army and that the new book would rectify that

    I wouldn't rule out the possibility of expansions to existing codexes being a thing. More Relics. More Warlord Traits. Alternate Chapter Tactics. Something like that.

    Thats great to hear; at least they do understand that just rehashing index will not do, so hopefully they'll put some work into it.

    Hasn't there been some whisperings that there might be a Kroot codex? That's a "completely new faction" that only needs modest kit support.
