Yep, looks pretty clearly like either a 40k ork thing or one of the scruffier Necromunda gangs maybe. 90% on ork. Absolutely unclear what though, could be a vehicle, could be a tankbusta rokkit hammer, could be a mega-armor boss, could be any model with a kombirokkit.

If you are referring to Stormboyz, they have have been a full plastic kit for quite a while now.

It seems possible. From memory (not an Ork player myself) they don’t have a huge amount of Finecast stuff left (Tankbustas, Kommandos, Characters?) so an update could be refreshing existing models (Nobs could do with it. Nothing fundamentally wrong, just don’t like some of the bitz myself)

The addition of Cyborks certainly seems possible!

I actually wouldn't want that to be honest. I like the current modularity between a lot of the major Ork kits, you can easily make a unit of tankbustas from the extra pieces from rokkit launchas in both lootas and boyz kits, while everything matches up head and arms wise with swaps. The way GW currently makes its kits is very monopose and restricted, and that would be antithethical to the Ork players converting and kitbashing stuff. I also wouldn't want them scaling the boyz differently and invalidating every Ork players 100+ boyz as well. All GW has to do is make Nobz troops and that gives you your "bigger" more modern Ork option.

There was a tease of something that might have been a Snakebite model back in the 'New Edition, New Models' bit.

Even when GW did separate subfaction rules supplements for non-SM factions, I don't think they ever released a faction specific model for them, barring Ynnari. So I couldn't see them releasing a plastic kit that only applies for Snakebites.

The stormboyz are one of the newer plastic kits in the Ork line (although probably about 10 years old at this point!), so I doubt that. Zagstruk is a definite possibility though, as it really looks like a Rokkit pack to me (and I’ve been building a bunch of stormboyz over Christmas).

Wasn’t the sneak peak video suspected to be a new Kommando? Replacing Zagstruk, Snikrot and the Kommandos would seem to be a logical move.

It would be a really weird Kommando if that's the case. 0:20 is the Ork.

Spoiler:



Interesting to note that it's 5 models teased, and 3 are now known. Lelith and the Palatine are a battlebox, Death Guard guy is a solo release, and that leaves the Skitarii and Ork...who could be a battlebox as well?

This looks like an ammo pack, not a flight pack. Along with the squig we're probably looking at plastic Tankbustas.

I definitely don't think the ork in the video is a kommando. Looks more snakebitey, and less "stealth ork ninja." But we do have a rumor engine with a clawed hand, which I think could be for Orks. Plus, this image and what people assume to be a squig wheel could mean new tankbustas. Those models (save for the squigs) need to be remade

Yes, you're getting way ahead of yourself. If 1 new figure is previewed, at most expect 1 new figure with the off chance of it actually being something else anyway. Orks are certainly getting something; best not to get your hopes up for more than that something. And certainly not a huge amount of somethings, not any time soon. Big release waves are rare, and I'm not sure Orks would be the most likely recipient anyway.

I know the ork range very well.

Seems likely that it is a plastic tankbusta rokkit.

Meaning we are looking at plastic tankbusta/kommando kit.

As well as whatever ork is in that teaser trailer.

Don't get your hopes up.
Furthermore, whatever it is we have a good 5-6 months/a year of waiting ahead of us before we figure it out.

I don't doubt it will be a while, but since they teased the ork character months back, it could be a bit closer than we expect. Unless the ork character is just crammed into an ad mech v ork box, a la Lelith and the Palantine

I don't mean something unique to Snakebites, but a unit that is a bit of a 'signature unit' like bikes and buggies are for Evil Sun, Komandos for Blood Axe and lootas are for Deff Skull.

Lots of boyz, boarz and wyrdboyz (and perhaps a Squiggoth or two) would be a nicely themed Snakebite force, even if you could put any of those units in a different Ork army and not have them look out of place.

I’m honestly surprised that we haven’t already seen a plastic squiggoth as it ticks a lot of boxes at once.
Capability to make a large model? Yes
Is it popular? Yes
Can it have multiple options? Yes
Is it a big flashy model for an army, like we see a lot now? Yes

They have far larger and more complex kits already.
Hell, ogors have a multi part beast that’s already more complicated and not far off the regular squiggoth size.
