I’m really hoping Necromunda means more than just the forthcoming weapon upgrade kits.

With the six Clan books out, I’m desperate to know where we go from here.

They said awhile back that there would be a "big reveal" later in the year...so I'm thinking this will be where we get that info.

As a sidenote, am I crazy or does that look like a Chaos Dwarf with a crossbow on the teaser silhouettes?

I don't think it is, the arms would be too long.

Vigo. Spain.

Thats a SOB model. And the blue silouette is some kind of dwarf or small humanoid with a lantern.

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.

Is this the first time GW has been to Gencon or just the first time they're doing a reveal at Gencon - or none of the above and they're just pre-announcing they'll do a reveal there and have always had a presence there?

They're usually at GenCon. It's just newsworthy as they're making it clear they will be doing some reveals.

Teaser silhouettes, but betterer, a screen grab from Instagram.

I think is a SoB; it fits the weird crossbow combi-bolter thing. The other two look like an SM with a 2 handed sword (middle, in yellow), and someone holding a lantern (probably a SCE, but I'd love if it was something for CoS)

Anyway, excited to see something about Blood Bowl on the schedule. The Necromunda news is probably something regarding the mystery faction teased before. And Kill Team is probably about the next set (which was rumoured to be SoB neophytes vs. GSC? IIRC; that would make the red silhouette being a SoB more likely).

EDIT: the next Kill Team set is rumoured to be SoB Neophytes vs T'au Pathfinders.

It's in the OP now!

With that?
Leftmost silhouette seems to be a human of some type. Cannot tell if 40k or AoS. Middle's a Black Templar.
Right seems to be an AoS model! Is not dwarf though.

My bet:

-40k black templars
-underworld: new season, full krulle or the full box vs stormcast
-Blood bowl: please chorfs, I accept vampires too.
-Necromunda: I demand that they will be the new ash wastes (and please make them look like the artwork)
-warcry: no idea. A new edition so followed by the kill team I don't think it's a good idea. Maybe a band of witch hunters.
-Kill team: as the rumor said, neophyte sisters

-40k: I agree, most likely option. Maybe next Codex after BT teased.
-Underworlds: agree too; but would ove it if the opponent warband was CoS (not very likely though)
-Blood Bowl: since I started converting Chorfs, it's probably that -_-
-Warcry: Could be anything honestly. I'm mostly awaiting a pleasant surprise.

Yellow: Most certainly a Black Templar Space Marine

Red: Reminds me of old (fantasy) Witchhunters or maybe a Sisters Kill Team model with a fancy condemnor Bolter

Blue: Something dwarfish holding a severed head and a knife? Chaos dwarfs or Squats, who knows.

Imperial Guard Space Marines

I think the blue figures left hand is holding a huge sword that is still attached at its waist and the sword tip can be seen behind the figure, also some sort of cape or tabard.

I agree the red crossbow seems to have a magazine underneath.

Really good spot!

Since AoS isn't a factor...I'm thinking it is either Underworlds or WarCry. Might very well be a "City Watch" styled thing, given that the Kruleboyz are in the Underworlds season?

I agree the red crossbow seems to have a magazine underneath.

This one does seem to, but given two factions in AoS(Stormcast and Dark Elf remnants) have magazine fed crossbows that's a bit less of a definitive thing for figuring it out.

I might be off a year or two, but I think these where the dates. The last US Games Day was 2013. Forge World had a booth at GenCon in 2014. In 2015 GW had a separate booth from FW to launch Age of Sigmar. That year both booths where manned by US store managers because the UK team was turned back at customs, they had the wrong visas. Both FW and GW have been using the same booth until 2019 when the Combat card game got its own booth.

Blue I’m increasingly convinced is from the AoS setting, and not a SoB.

Right I think might actually be a SoB - perhaps a dedicated Celestians Kit to tie into Kill Team, with similar mix and match options as the Orks and Guard, and what we’re seeing is a Combi Bow Bolter thing. The one Psykers don’t like up ‘em.

The (pretty reliable) leak for SoB Killteam was that they would be Neophytes. Tau were unfortunately just getting the old Path Finder kit with an upgrade sprue.

Versteckt in den Schatten deines Geistes.

"So many years after Necromunda's release, we took the time to really reflect on not only where we were going, but also where we'd come from. With that in mind, we thought it was only right to go back to the beginning and give a proper update to the two original gangs - Escher and Goliath. We're very proud to announce second editions of both House of Blades and House of Chains. These great new tomes will update the rules considerably, and will kick off a new wave of second editions for all the classic Necromunda Gangs over the next year and a half."



But yeah, here's hoping for an actual new gang.

And I think the right one is something Stormcast related. Probably underworlds. If it's an Inquisitor, then great.

I think the middle one is a BT Marshall, or a Sword Brother at the absolute least.

No idea on the left-most one. Repurposed Cursed City release?

Disappointed there's nothing for Titanicus but I've given up on that game anyway. Otherwise, its good to see GW taking a break from AoS 3rd edition previews.

A new Tyranid model or two would be nice; expecting to see a new Lictor/Death leaper kit along with the Red Terror. It won't happen but I'd like to see a new Tyranid that is more reminiscent of the classic Screamer Killer. Miss that guy so...damn...much!

Tired of waiting for that Harlequin codex...

New season of Underworlds seems a given, and very likely Stormcasts vs Kruleboyz. Maybe new monsters for Warcry, and a new starter set? Personally, I'd like to see something Soulblight for this game, which would somewhat make up for Cursed City.

Not a Blood Bowl nor Necromunda player, but interested to hear what others are hoping for. Are these games in their happy places or do you regularly shake your fists at them?
