Princeps of the Titan 'SDF-1'






First of the New Year, 7 January 2020. - SOLVED! New Catachan Character, coming to FLGS soon (GW are sending a bunch free to Indy Stockists. Pic pending. I’ve got it in an email, but struggling to copy/pasta.

I reckon it’s an Ork Kommando.





Paint job looks to be green, or at least not a human skin tone? Muscles and fingers also seem Orky.

But, could be a Catachan, I guess?

14 January 2020



Reminiscent of an Ogre Gutplate. But general consensus is it’s too large, and may in fact be for the as yet unseen Giant army?

21 January 2020 - SOLVED! New Hyshian Elven infantry.





28 January 2020. Buggered if I know. SOLVED - Khainite Warband for WarCry.



4 February 2020 - SOLVED! Lumineth Hammer wielding infantry.



11 February 2020 - something Lumineth, possibly a monster looking at the size - SOLVED! Lumineth Battle Cattle.



18 February 2020 - some kind of shield boss or gut plate it would seem.



25 February 2020 revealed as the new Store Opening Model, Sgt Ripper Jackson




3 March 2020. Elf Hotpot?



10 March 2020 - current thinking is Orks or Cawdor.



17 March 2020. Something Chaos,



24 March 2020



31 March 2020. Ossiarchs is the smart money.



7 April 2020 - reckon its a sneaky peeky at a Giant.



14 April 2020 - Almost certainly Stormcast.



21 April 2020 - the claaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw



28 April 2020 - 100% Lizardmen. Possibly a Skink? Dare we hope for updated Saurus Cavalry? Because those models are awful.



5 May 2020 - could be a Khornate Daemon or Flesh Eater Court?



12 May 2020? Three fingered flutist. Ooer, sounds a bit rude!



19 May 2020 Skinny little Elfy.



26 May 2020. Is it a fish, or is it a fowl? Is a guppy? NO IT’S AN OWL!



2 June 2020. Is stompy? SOLVED! Space Marine Hammerfall thingy



Spoiler:


9 June 2020. Definitely a power fist, definitely chaos. But is Nightlords, Nurgle or World Eaters?



16 June 2020. Servo-skull. I reckon it’s for Astartes, if only because Ad-Mech just had a significant release wave.



23 June 2020



30 June 2020. Dark Elf aesthetic for sure. Possibly unseen model for the previewed WarCry warband?



7 July 2020



14 July 2020 - I whip my hair back and forth across your throat tearing open your arteries



21 July 2020



28 July 2020



4 August 2020



11 August 2020



18 August 2020



25 August 2020. I reckon it’s an AoS Witch Hunter



1 September 2020



8 September 2020



15 September 2020. Could we be seeing Zombies finally updated?

Im guessing ork commando kit, feels like it would match up with the ork boot on box of ammo which we got a few weeks back. Also I think fits in with some new ork stuff coming with the final PA Saga of the beast

"Saga of the Beast" purportedly isn't the final one, just the final one we have a title for.

I wouldn't be shocked if it's a Kommando/Tankbusta dual kit.

a) saga will bring in character model. So if this is it then the scout special character whose name I can't recall?
b) people keep saying PA6 is last but on what logic? Unless last 2 books are jam packed with factions with like 6 per book they can't be last ones or GW flat out lied.

Cozy cockpit of an Imperial Knight

Not an ork, the lack of long finger nails and the binoculars are too nice and neat.

I really want this to be for an Ork Kommando kit but that would be to easy.

Have these pictures ever been very obvious and it turned out to be correct? Don't remember that ever being the case.

The fingernails do take away from the possibility of an Ork model, but the proportions of the forearm to the hand are perfectly Orky. If this were 20 years ago and we were still in the era of wonkily proportioned human sculpts, I'd say it's a Catachan without hesitation. These days I'm not so sure they would make a human model with such huge mitts.

I don't think the binoculars being nice and neat would be an issue for a Blood Axe!

The nails bit is weird though. It could just be washed out from the saturation of the photo, but the newer kits(buggies, etc) have them slightly less pronounced where a heavy paintjob could make them indistinguishable from the finger when color's removed.

I guess the other possibility is that this could be for a line of Traitor Guardsmen or a new Ogryn based unit.

Easier to do 1 catachan model than update and give guard a high quality plastic regiment which they deserve.

Anyway, my guess is it will be a GSC character for their upcoming PA appearance.

I don't know enough about Tau and what their hands look like, but could it be a Tau model also?

I doubt it will be gsc, because they already gained a lot of models with there codex and they're not space marines

It's gotta be Catachan, that exact binoc comes in guard heavy weapon boxes and the watch is a common thing you see on Catachan arms, especially the newer command and heavy weapon kits.

About damn time, that original box is pushing 20 years old.

The watch is odd, but all I see is a Goblin arm. Or Gretchin. The binocular isn't a dealbreaker since the Mek Gunz spotter uses an unorky binocular

I assume it’s a Necromunda model. Otherwise...Ork.

looks like IG binocs that came with the HWT's.
So for sure we have here a human.
But the arm seems big, burly and to musculous, for a normal one, so either Catachan, GSC or an ork, albeit the no nail one on the hand is wierd.

Otoh wishfull thinking, tit might be a traitor guardsmen with some blessings?
