Well, here's hoping it's something interesting. It would be nice to see some reworked kroot, some plastic auxillaries, maybe even a new alien race added to the Empire. They've been going battlesuit heavy fir a while now.

Of course, that all depends on if this is PA or just a stand alone release. PA, it's probably one model and some rules.

I mean, fifty bucks is on the line.

They're just like normal Crisis Suits, except they have fancy knee-pads and Mk.IV helmets.

Someone on Bolter and Chainsword claims to have seen a picture of a plastic Shadowsun model. I dunno why they’d lie when we’ll know tomorrow if they were telling the truth or not.

Well, if it's not a Shadowsun, they can still pull a classic Hastings and claim the model does exist, just that GW is holding it back for a few more years to thwart their genius-rumor-insights, and they'll be able to claim even more internetz-glory in 2025 or so, when there'll eventually be a plastic Shadowsun at some point, lol.

Got to have something as target practice while the the PA5 is actually supplement for deathwatch or something. Name of the book doesn't tell what is going to be main focus of rules. See PA4.

Tha Tau Psychic Awakening book will mirror the Eldar book with Tau on both sides of the conflict. But because Tau are less important than Eldar, both sides have to share Shadowsun because releasing two Tau models would be excessive.

At least they'd be having some rules, unlike the "no-Banshee-mask-Ynnari-Banshee" that's still waiting to have any rules for the supposedly "unique path" they walk, lol.

I just hope that the Tau name generator includes Kais and Ukos as words, as put together that means Skillful Spoon.

I wonder if there's anything else coming with the mini?

Most stuff now seems to show up with a codex, campaign or other related minis so a simple hero with nothing else seems odd

unless it's part of the Psycic Awakening stuff?

Well, we do know there is a Psychic Awakening book in February titled "The Greater Good", lol. So yeah, it's for that.

They already previewed the Dark Angels guy for the January Psychic Awakening book before the New Year.

Did GW claim that it would be a new model for each book? Dahyak Grekh is still only available in BSF and they could give him a clamshell. That shadowsun looks really busy for a "stealth" command suit and it has 2 sets of arms. She might get a new datasheet if that picture is legit. Wonder if her drones are going to get a facelift too.

I would be all over Tau if they expanded Farsight Enclaves with some wicked melee suits.

While I'm all for a little Tau civil war and it's probably about the upper limit a Psychic Awakening book and its associated, single new model release can handle, I maintain what Tau really need is more slave races. As has already been mentioned in this thread, GW has gone crazy on the big stompy robot angle and it's a shame because the most defining part upon their introduction was that they were a functioning alien coalition. That actually added something to 40k back in the day.

You'd think GW was ready for it too now that we have Mechanicus, Genestealer Cults, plastic Sisters...

No.

GW did not claim there would be a model per book, and the first Psychic Awakening had several new models in the box, including Jain Zar, Banshees, Incubi and Drazhar.

But Faith & Fury had a Chaos Sorcerer, Blood of Baal had Mepthiston and the Ritual of the Damned seems to have only the Dark Angels Captain from what's previewed thus far.


I'd expect some Psychic Awakening or another to coincide with a larger release again at some point. If they wanna cover the remaining 15ish factions or so that were promised a Psychic Awakening treatment, it's bound to happen. But quite a few books, it seems, will come out with a single model.

None of the Blackstone Fortress Explorer characters can be given clamshells, as they're on shared sprues.

It's one of the big issues with the Explorers side of things.

Nice looking Shadowsun.

Melee focused suits that don't suck would be a pretty sweet addition but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

When they revealed names for next 3 they did say each is accompanied by mighty hero.

So yes they did. Does anything else come? No proof for either way but odds are good it's no.
