So probably previews for the two remaining 40k December codices and the Chaos AoS book?

Eh to the lieutenant, but the vampire is probably one of the more intriguing sculpts i've seen. She's awesome.

OOOOOF I'll be getting that vampire like.

Approx armies
6000pts AdMech (Main army)
6000pts Black Templars (original army)
3500pts Death Guard (lazy side project)
2000pts Imperial Knights (extension of AdMech)
1500pts Harlequins (fun side project)

Maybe?

Last year didn't have much in the way of previews on Warhammer Day itself, but it sounds like they might have learned from that and will instead be doing a preview week.

I'd guess there will be Specialist Games(that Horus Heresy box is still unaccounted for!), 40k(there's a battlebox for GSC+Custodes in the Big Rumours), AoS, and Middle Earth.

I like both minis but if I had to make a choice then my vote would go for the vampire.

Wait, what am I missing with this Lieutenant? It's just a bladeguard vet with lieutenant badge moulded onto the shoulder.

Couldn't they have at least done a Lieutenant with a power axe or lightning claws or just something other than a power sword? It's so far past ridiculous at this point.

Vampire looks very cool, it's sword is a part of an unsolved rumour engine, no?

The veteran is too boring, and could have really done with something to liven him up a bit. The vampire is great though, will look to pick that up.

I normally like new Lieutenants because they offer new stuff, but this one feels like no effort model. Hey, GW, where's gravis LT? Bike LT? Inceptor LT? Power maul, claws or fist option? Combi-weapon like BT ones so you have excuse to give other SM options they should have received long before BT did? Anything actually new?

Vampire looks nice, but really calls for head swap. GW, why every vampire looks like diseased zombie? You forgot main and oldest AoS vampire faction is supposed to be full of beautiful women? What happened to these?

Was browsing the GW site this morning looking for something to use my Warhammer plus voucher on...Anasta has answered that question. That Lt is very vanilla though.

Not entirely sold on the face and fangs, but the vampire is otherwise excellent.

Holsterguard lieutenant seems a waste of time.

I think GW outdone themselves with the vampire miniatures and this is no exception. Truly awesome miniature!!

It really is a shame they apparently picked the worst Vampire Lord sculpt out of all 6 or 7 they made for their official mini that's a permanent part of the range. Because this one is killer and i'd rather have this one and the bat-hair one to swap places.

So glad we're getting a Primaris Lieutenant. It's been, what? Only a couple of weeks since the last one. That one must've been getting stale...

Well last year we locked down in November and had only just come reeling out of the last lockdowns and a crazy summer. So yeah it was all bent out of shape last year. GW has more of a handle on things this year and even if things do lock down most companies can remain operational during a lockdown to some extent. So GW has far more scope to potentially weather things even if they'd cause disruption

GW is realllly struggling to come up with any new poses for Primaris characters aren't they? Perhaps it's a sign there is already way too many.

I get the impression it might have been sculpted/worked on at the same time as the other releases but not given the green light due to it being inferior/boring in just about every way to its counterparts.

Good solution for an event mini then?

Even the vampire looks a bit 'off' compared to it's mainstream counterparts. Still solid compared to the marine though

Am I the only one who feels like the Lieutenant is an alternate sculpt that didn't make it into final production? And is now getting recycled?

It's definitely been kicking round the GW Studio for a while - there's a photo of it in the Ork Codex.

Nope. He looks like a trial version or alt sculpt for the Indomitus lieutenant and/or bladeguard.

Which is fine, in the theory of event special sculpts that don't really mean much. Its less fine given the lack of support non-marines are stuck with. Why not an alt-sculpt autarch or nob? Or whatever?

Almost all specials are something that didn't make it into the regular cycle.

Damn, AoS designers gotta step up that game. I'm so blinded by how original the Marine looks that my eyes aren't able to see any differences from all the other Bladeguard Vets!

When I saw the models in the newsletter I knew of course both were new, but without that context the lieutenant could have fooled me.

The vampire lord lady on the other hand is gorgeous. I haven't blown my Warhammer+ voucher on anything yet. This is as good an opportunity as it gets.

But sometimes, a model that was clearly intended to be a limited one makes it into the regular cycle - like the Firstborn BT Castellan.

I'm aware. But last year we had been doing preview livestreams all throughout the year, and there had been one a week prior.

Darn it allow me to live in my illusionary world where I don't yet own a vampire army. It's bad enough that I've picked up a few of the SoB exclusives

Not going to watch it as what I want to be shown, surely won't be (New guard, specifically more DKoK kits). So I'll just catch the summary later in the day on WarCom.

Knowing my luck, We won't get Krieg but proper Primaris Terminators, which will be sods law after wanting them for so long, I won't be all that fussed as Krieg is the main priority....
