Flailing Flagellant





Some sort of Darkoath Barbarian character with the moniker "Kingslayer" or some such


Though the Beastclaw are covered with stuff on hooks already

I'm thinking Slaves to Darkness/Everchosen. The crowns are clearly meant to be nobles of some sort and that's a bit specific of a head than just 'generic human'. Soulblight would also fit, although the hooks do seem more of a Chaos thing.

They are simple butcher's hooks, the ogre line as a lot of them. StD had the viking guy with his trophy rack, but apart from him have they ever shown severed heads?

Quite a few, especially chaos, undead and orcs and goblins.
Nurgle has a special use for severed heads, but those tend to be less fresh.

Like others, I expect a darkoath or warcry model for this. These arent ogre sized hooks.

Is that some sort of balding royal family or is Chaos employing trophy barbers now?

It's the realization that if you scalp the head you just took, you get two trophies out of a single kill.

I think the heads point towards the final Warcry warband, some people speculated they have a skin flayer theme. Maybe they'll have a rather gory theme.

I dont think a (fluffwise) minor warband for warcry would be able to boast two decapitated kings.

AoS is a VAST setting so its perfectly possible to have killed many minor lords and kings and crush kingdoms and still only be a minor warlord yourself in the grand scheme of things

Yeah, the AoS setting is bogus like that. The near-infinite nature of the Mortal Realms means that outside of the actual gods, no standing is so significant that you would ever be in short supply of people holding it.

Having your personal king's head trophy literally doesn't mean a thing in AoS.

Quite a few recent images point to Ogors. I don't think any other current faction has hooks like these but Ogors are full of them.

It's a bit too clean for the Ogors. Their stuff tends to be larger hooks from what I've seen.

The Zombie Dragon has some skulls on chains/hooks that would match this. Tenebrael Shard also had similar hooks.

Imperial Targetting system of some description.

Could be shoulder mounted, ala the Devastator Sarge, but I suspect tank mounted.

What tank?

Possibly the Grav Rhino all blurred out during the comedy vid from the other week?

On the previous one, Dark Elves used to do both hooks and separate heads, though it does feel more fitting for some Chaos champion who has bested some rivals, or indeed an Ogre of sorts.

it's for sure to go with the additional vanguard release for primaris. The antennae match the Infiltrators so I expect this is an addition to the tank or dread.

The former. Several vehicles already have a similar thing, this just has more gubbinz. Something something primaris vehicle, I expect.

Very similar to various dread optics:



Dunno if I'd expect it to be a primaris dread, seeing Redemptor ones are integrated into the side of shell, unless that new scout dread has extra gubbinz to show off its scoutiness. Also, either WC is being really lazy with promotion of Vanguard, or the release is fall at the earliest...

You mean the Infiltrators and the Eliminators with Lasfusils?

It looks like the 'array' on the back of the manned Dread from that same video.

I dunno, there was something else in the photo on the right side that really struck me as "devastator aggressors" or something like that. It was so blurry though.

I believe it's a targeter doodad that goes on top of a Primaris backpack. I'm hoping it's part of an Imperial/Crimson Fists upgrade sprue. Since they messed up the sprue in the xmas Imperial Fists Battleforce box, the insignia on the Powerfist was mirrored, I'm hoping they finally get around to releasing the sprue corrected.

However I suspect it's more likely part of a raft of new Primaris minatures that we really don't need. I have nothing against Primaris or new Primaris units, but ancillary products like more of the chapter specific shoulder pads would be nice.
