So with Shadowspear a month or so away a bit of friendly discussion has popped up on the news and rumours forum.

Are the miniatures multi part plastics or monopose sprues?

They look monopose to me but I am not certain, so for a bit of fun have your say.

Depends on if it's coming with a Rulebook or not in my opinion.

TaC and WtD, both came as multipart sets without a book.

If it is a psuedo-starter set, and comes with a Rulebook, they will be monopose.

So, probably voting mono.

Are we counting the characters in this? Because they are obviously going to be monopose like almost every character for the last few years.

Im not 100%. The marine models say monopose to me, because of the cloaks.....however, the CSM models seem very much multipart. The Oblits and characters are very much not multipart.

It could be both! Id like to see whatever the "other" intercessors in the picture with the chest gear would look like too.

I think the thing that initially got me thinking that they were monopose was the bolter CSM being extremely similar to the ones found in Blackstone Fortress. And GW can do amazing things with such sprues now.

But we will see, not really fussed either way am just exuberant to see updated Chaos miniatures.

As it will be part of vigilus there will already likely be a rulebook, so I bet multipart.

I voted a bit of both. I think it will be that hybrid multipart like the Plague Marines box (not the one in Dark Imperium): You'll get "multipart" but will have to put certain pieces together to make certain distinct poses, which will lead to duplication of poses if you buy more than one box, rather than be able to actually make each model slightly unique if you wanted to like you could in the olden days.

WC said it's a box in line with Wake the Dead etc so that would definitely mean multipart models which could later be released seperate (see GSC Aberrants).
But I highly doubt that the kits will have much going for them in lines of posing.

Well in the artwork there seems to be an obliterator with melee options, so I am voting multi-part. Looks to me like the Obliterators will have Mutilator options.

The CSM have different weapons in the preview pics, so definitely seem like they will be multi-pose (Probably like the Plague Marines) sort of.

Hell I am hoping my Space Wolves buddy will go halfsies with me on the box set. I don't even play CSM, just Death Guard, but I want the mocdels to paint!

Sadly I doubt it will be. Hope I am proven wrong however.

It will probably be more along the lines of DI in terms of posing. But one can always grab a knife and convert.

Please note, for those of you who play Chaos Daemons as a faction the term "Daemon" is potentially offensive. Instead, please play codex "Chaos: Mortally Challenged". Thank you.

Multipart but monopose. With a few weapon/wargear options if we're lucky.

Characters will very likely be mono-pose and torsos on all of the marines will likely be connected to their legs in only one way, but things like arms and heads will likely be swappable.

In other words, they won't be snap-fit Easy to Build, but they'll likely follow the same theme as we've seen with the rest of the Primaris and Death Guard releases.
