Come checkout what looks like xenos terrain hidden in plain sight – sneaky GW!

Take a look at these two images that have doing the rounds today:

terrain-101

Ok, so that’s the new Stormsurge.  Now let’s take a look at what’s on the left and right behind it.

terrain-102

On the left are some cylindrical objects that look about marine height.  On the right is what appears to be an circular platform with a hollowed out interior.  Almost a Tau weapon emplacement or dugout of some type.

There has been talk for years of GW eventually getting around to xenos terrain – and we have some candidates here.

~Do you think we have the some Tau terrain kits back there on the left and right of the Stormsurge, or just some kitbashed do-dads to spruce up the table?

    Possibly but still not convinced. GW always dangle a carrot and then out of nowhere comes the stick. I remember some eldar terrain that ended up being custom made in a white dwarf magazine. 🙁

      How far back was the Eldar terrain? I ask because these days GW seems to only show pictures with their terrain kits.

      • BrianDavion

        yeah GW these days doesn’t wanna want to enchourage us to build our own stuff. they’ve changed their mentality a bit

    • Arthfael

      The Eldar terrain, if it is what I think, was clearly custom made, as you could spot bits of grav tanks here and there.

  • pillowhugger

    i bet 10 cookies that its just custom terrain

  • Marcus George

    You missed the new xv8 suit behind them 😉

  • deuce1984

    The terrain piece to the left looks like an ADL (follow the purple fencing)

  • erion

    4th or 5th edition Tau Codex had some pictures with really nice Tau Terrain that could easily have passed for retail product but ended up being custom-made pieces for the codex shots. I am not convinced.

    • The Basement Gamer

      They had tons of that back in the day, but I haven’t really seen any terrain in any of the 6th or 7th that didn’t look like it was at least kitbashed from terrain kits.

    Hmm, I sense a case of…

  • That suit dropping a deuce? What’s going on here?

    • Semaj

      The deuce is loose!

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      He’s positioned himself in such a way so that he can fire the massive cannon without falling over.

    • Madrox303

      squats bro! For the Gains!!

  • Driftless

    Lame!!!

  • Merca84

    Aliens …

    • ChubToad

      “Terrains”

    • Coltcabunny

      To the top!

  • If that’s scratch built the craftsman is awesome.

  • Malthrak

    It’s not like GW hasn’t made Tau-specific terrain for diorama’s before…like in the 3E & 4E codex books, Planetstrike book, etc.?

    Assuming a couple random blurry pieces of background “stuff” in a diorama mean anything is, well, silly.

  • Nocturus

    I’d love for it to turn out to be some kind of third party terrain like chapter house…

  • ElGigante

    They’ve made custom Tau scenery for their boards before, I think it a bit of a leap to say it’s new scenery about to be released.

  • Kveldulf

    Tau scenery = curvy styrofoam inserts from electronics.

    • Merca84

      Still high technology related !
